My Horse Profile

Tennessee Walking Horse from Gillespie, IL

Gibson

About Me

Active within 1721 Days

I am from Gillespie, IL and I've been a Club Horse member for 7 years, 1 month and 19 days

Nicknames: Gibs, Gibbys, Baby Horse

Age: 7 years old

Gender: Stallion

Breed: Tennessee Walking Horse

Height: Should mature somewhere between 13-14 hh. He is over 2 yrs now and at about 13 hands.

Color: Black and White Tobiano

Type of Riding: When he's ready he'll become one of my trail partners. I'd like to show him with our others at the local saddle club and teach him to pull a cart like his mother.

My Horse's Achievements: His ability to adapt and the affection he shows toward all people not just me:o)

My Horse's Favorite Treat: He really likes a mineral block and bananas. But will consume almost any food product offered.

My Horse's Favorite Things To Do: Help with barn chores, especially any with the wheel-barrow involved.

Pet Peeves: Standing Still. He stands tied quiet but needs work outside of that.

My Horse's motto: "Scratch on me and I'll nibble on you"

How We Met

I answered a local classified ad to clean up pony droppings out of a field. I met the owner and her pony, she told me Penny was pregnant and due in August. I had been working there for a few months and the owner told me she didn't plan to keep the foal and asked if I'd like to have it. Very surprised I accepted. Weeks had past, we were anxious and excited about the expected arrival that came very unexpected. Penny showed no signs that she was going to foal and on July 6 she did during the early dawn hours. I first met the newest addition when he was around 4 hours old. Truely Amazing..

I know this won't happen, but my impossible CHRISTmas wish this year would be to have a trail ride on Fancy, with all my HorseChannel friends. To my dismay, this isn't happening(i couldn't afford it anyway,LOL), so Fancy and I will leave you a CHRISTmas vote instead

Gibson is looking really great. I can see why you'd be proud of him and I understand that you could go on forever about your boys. I'm the same way so I'll give you a little taste. I had a really great ride on Prince this Tuesday. My sister didn't come so we rode without Eddie and he was so much more concentrated on my aids and without the distraction he was almost perfect. For the first time I took him over a couple of poles. He was kind of spooked the first time but then after that it was no problem at all. I want to try raising them so he'll jump. We'll have to see what he thinks about that. I think he's such a great guy and he's really putting his heart into learning stuff. He still tries to grab a bite to eat while we're riding but that's okay. Sometimes I let him. Pippin is also doing really wonderfully. I took him part way up the mountain a few days ago and he trotted the whole way up. And then when we turned around he cantered fast all the way down. It was so much fun and the best thing of all is that when I asked him for a "whoa" in the middle of cantering he stopped within a few steps. He's so responsive and eager to do the right thing. Well, most of the time. He can take two passengers now and he does really well. We haven't tried any faster than a trot because I think he needs to build up to that. Anyway, as you can see I'm pretty pleased with my two boys. Eddie's great too but he's more my sister's. Okay, I'll stop there. That's great that Boston runs alongside your 4-wheeler. Do you go far like that? And as for Gibson, it's so nice training a horse that is smart and willing to learn. I think that it's so much nicer to train a horse than to get one already made. Well, I hope you had a great weekend and here's a vote for you.

Come visit me, Prince, Pippin (Remembering Melian) & Eddie.

Well, I thought I'd write to you on Gibson's page this time. He is such a cutie and I love all his pictures. He sounds like he's trouble though. Pippin can be like that sometimes. I'm glad that no one else contracted the strangles. That's funny about the head tossing. Why do horses do that? There is a field near here where all the horses start doing that when we ride our bikes past. It looks really funny because it looks as though they're nodding at us. You have no electricity or water? That must be hard. I lived like that for awhile and I definately prefer having them. I hope you get them before winter really sets in. Our weather is still not too bad but it freezes at night. But not enough to ice the water yet. Well, I hope you enjoy the video and Pippin sends his greetings to you all. Here's a vote for Gibson. BTW, are you going to geld him?

*UPDATE*
I wanted to give an update on Gibson. He is leading very well from both sides. He will raise his hooves with ease and is now....dadadada standing tied calmly and quietly even when mom heads out to the pasture w/o him. Now if I can just get him to stop trying to use me as a chew toy....
