My Horse Profile

Arabian from Lascassas, TN

Casper

About Me

Active within 2318 Days

I am from Lascassas, TN and I've been a Club Horse member for 7 years, 4 months and 8 days

Nicknames: The Friendly Horse, Ghost Rider, Cass, Cassy

Age: 7 years old

Gender: Gelding

Breed: Arabian

Height: 14.3hh

Color: White. (Also: he's a Quarab)

Type of Riding: Trail riding in a beautiful custom-made Western saddle.

My Horse's Achievements: He and I are developing a bond slowly, but surely. The day after I brought him home, it became evident that, yes, I am an English rider. I didn't have any idea how to ride in a hackamore or neck rein. I researched it, however, and Casper is learning my hand every day.

My Horse's Favorite Treat: Carrots and corn shucks.

My Horse's Favorite Things To Do: Eat. Be lazy. Roll in the dirt (argh!).

Pet Peeves: Me pulling on his reins, not giving him more than one carrot, braiding his mane.

How We Met

I had been wanting another horse for only a few months. We'd been searching online every day, and were still finding nothing. I wanted a dead-broke Tennessee Walker or Spotted Saddle Horse. My dad talked to a man at work who offered his white Arabian/ Quarter Horse gelding for $800. Dad saw opportunity and said we'd come check it out. We did. When we got there, the man said "Casper" hadn't been ridden in a year. Of course, I'm like "Well, it was worth a try; let's go home now." But Dad's like "Let's give him a try." We rode respectively, and I fell in love. He was perfect! (Even though he neck reined).

I own an arab/quarter and they're wonderful!! They have just enough go, and spirit, but they still have a lazy side. Your horse favors mine, too. Heres a vote, and good luck with Casper!

I just made a new video starring Pippin. It's called Pippin's Love and the link is above. I thought you might enjoy it. I also have new photos on Prince's and Eddie's pages. I would love for you to check them out. My sister also uploaded a new video of her parrot, Poirot, babbling away. The video is called Poirot's Babbling. I know she would love a visit from you. Have you been watching the Olympics? We have and they're pretty exciting. The opening ceremony was the best ever and we were just awestruck. Well, here's a vote for you and enjoy riding. ttyl

Hey, thanks for getting back! Funny thing is, I've always wanted a WHITE horse, lol!! Not anymore! Idk, we are gonna start looking for a horse to lease sometime soon (my parents are NOT horse people =( ) so I don't know what I'll find, it really doesn't matter to me, I just want a mustang. I don't actually even know how leasing works, do you? Well say hi to your Casper for me! ~Merry CHRISTmas!~

Poor Cracker Jack. I don't even know him and I feel sad too. That's great that Ginger lets you put the halter on her. Is she broken in? I haven't had much chance to take Pippin out because I've been working. But I have had his company a lot because he has been outside with me. I did take him for one short walk last week and we saw some of the neighbours horses. They have a huge gelding that feels threatened by Pippin as a stallion. Of course, they don't seem to realize the size difference. Pippin is the size of his neck and head. I think that gelding could swallow him in one gulp! Here's another vote for Casper.

I'm sorry that you don't get much time to ride. That's too bad. But at least you get to see them everyday and give them coookies. So they'll really look forward to your visits. I feel really sorry for your old mini. That's so sad. Poor thing. I don't suppose you could take him back? Thanks for the comment on Pippin's video. It was a lot of fun to make. And he loves to run around like that. Here's another vote for Casper. Take care.

Well, my horse is still lame. A thing that I love with Parelli is that you do ground games. So if you did Parelli you could start doing ground games until he is confidant in the lot and then try riding again over there. Doing ground games with my horse alone changed him tremendously.

How are Casper's and Ginger's ailments? The listerine makes sense because it is an antiseptic and may kill the organisms that cause rain rot. Is Casper still begaving better? I hope you're doing fine and taking advantage of the summer to get lots of riding in. I just put a video of Pippin on YouTube. I would love you to go and see it. It's a tribute to Shadowfax from the Lord of the Rings. Here's a vote for you and here's the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5PXnKN208rs

I'm not really sure if I can help you with Casper's tail problem or not. I'm glad that he's behaving better and getting over his barn sourness. He's probably beginning to trust you more and feel more comfortable in his new home. As for the scab and bleeding, there are several possibilities. It could be an injury, perhaps he was itchy and rubbed his tail against something sharp, or it may be bug bites of some kind or mites. If it doesn't get better you should ask a vet. Have fun riding! And here's another vote for you.

Hi
I haven't been able to work with Scooter for a few days because of the weather and he had his feet done last Wednesday and has been lame ever since. The farrier clipped him too short. I'm hoping to be able to work with him tomorrow or Tuesday. Thanks for asking. I'm glad that you didn't fall off or anything when Casper bucked with you. I've had a few buck with me. Even a lesson horse one time. Scooter has bucked once with me. He was feeling frisky. It wasn't a full out kicking buck though.

Beautiful
Thank you for the compliment. No, we weren't able to save all 4. Oh, but how I wanted to! We just don't have enough land for that many. The book sounds like a great read!! I'm definitely going to look into getting it.

Casper is absolutely beautiful!! *VOTE*

Hi
No, I don't think that your a bad owner. Now that I do Parelli, I look back all the time and remember all the crazy things that I used to do. When I used to take riding lessons, I was always told all the proper things to do while riding. I ended up being stiff and hated it. I don't understand why a person needs spurs, a crop, and a harsh bit just to make a horse go and stop.
I think you would do really well in Parelli. It sounds like you would have the time. You will definately become your horse's leader. The price may be steep, but you won't regret it.

Problems... Read on...
I have a problem with Casper. About a week ago, I was grooming Casper, and I noticed his tail was kind of pink in one area. I looked closer, and saw that there was blood on his tail. I picked through the hair and saw that on his dock (I think that's the right word) or tailbone area he had a scab. Well, I rode again and noticed more blood stains while I was grooming him. I looked closer, picking through the hair, and saw that there were several scabs that had come off and were just sitting in the hair. Around the area where the scabs had been last week was dry skin. It looked like, and this is kind of gross, the skin that comes off after your skin has been sunburned. Is that normal? And what should I do about what I assume is an injury on his tailbone (or is it really a dock?)? And one more thing: Casper's nose area, eye area, and under-the-tail area is sort of spotted. Could he have Appaloosa in him? He's a Quarab, but I really know nothing about his pedigree. He's not even registered. Thanks.

Come visit me, Casper, Ginger & Lorelai Valentine.
