How We Met

It was the summer of 2005 when my daughter had rented a house next to his pasture. I noticed on a hot sweltering day that he had no water. I stretched the water hose over to his water container and he was so thirsty he drank right from the water hose. I began to water him and bring treats for him. I never saw his owner work with him. Occasionaly, I would see the owner storing items in the barn there. The owner had divorced and the spouse had removed Star's buddy from the pasture leaving Star totally alone for nine months. Late Fall I asked the owner what plans had been made for him with the winter coming on. The owner had no idea and said horses back in the 1800's lived off the land. With the owner's permission I sectioned off a small corner in the dilapataed barn for him to come in out of the weather. At my own expense I bought hay and grain. Through the winter every day when I fed him, I'd groom him while he ate. By Spring Star and I had a special bond and I had fallen in love with him. By late Spring, 2006 his owner sold him to me. I had never owned a horse, ridden a horse, been around a horse, but I was a proud owner of a horse and had no idea what I was going to do with him. I knew that I loved him and he was attached to me. His ground manners were atrocious, but a trainer brought him around not only with ground manners, but being ridden also. While he was being trained, I was taking horse riding lessons. Star and I have been through a lot and have come a long way since that summer of 2005. He is very precious to me..

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 another vote for you and here's the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5PXnKN208rs

Thanks
Thanks for stopping by and visiting Pippin. Yes, it is fun to spoil them and they know it too! Pippin's size lets him get away with a little too much. But he's so cute so we give in. Here's another vote for Star. And congratulations on horse of the week.

Congratulations
Congratulations on winning horse of the day. Star sounds as though he now has the perfect home and someone to dote on him. I love his markings. They are my favourite type of appaloosa markings. I hope you have lots of fun riding him for a long time. Here's a vote.
