My Horse Profile

Arabian from Grande Prairie, AB

Buddy

About Me

Active within 14 Days

I am from Grande Prairie, AB and I've been a Club Horse member for 7 years, 8 months and 22 days

Nicknames: Bud, Monster, Goober

Age: 13 years old

Gender: Gelding

Breed: Arabian

Height: Under 15 HH I think, I need to measure him to be 100% sure.

Color: Chestnut with some roaning.

Type of Riding: English currently. He has done western as well. I would love to do Endurance riding with him,

My Horse's Achievements: Siring some beautiful babies before he was gelded.
His first time out on the trail with someone riding him!
Our first overnight trail ride up to the lake and back in the summer of 2012. Not only was he well behaved, it was one of the best parts of my trip up to the ranch that summer.
Being on his best behaviour on his trailer ride from British Columbia home to Alberta on October 13th :)
HOTD 2013
HOTD February 19, 2014
HOTM March 2014
Moving to Grande Cache like a champ in the middle of the winter in 2014, and only to move to Grande Prairie in the start of the spring around the end of March 2015.

I'm proud of how he well he trailers The one and only time he and only time he had been in a trailer for an extended period of time was when my aunty move him from Alberta to British Columbia, until I moved him from BC to AB. Since then he has been trailered at least twice throughout Alberta, and has been on his best behaviour, wearing shipping boots and all :)

My Horse's Favorite Treat: Likits, Uncle Jimmy's Licky Things, Alfalfa cubes, oats, carrots, and horse cookies, really any kind of treat, or anything a horse can eat!

My Horse's Favorite Things To Do: He loves to be groomed, and to play with babies along with the other horses. He likes to "play a game" when you try to catch him and not come inside/be caught. He especially likes to play this game when I want to do something more then groom him.

Pet Peeves: Bugs! No treats

My Horse's motto: Never give up.

How We Met

My aunty got him as a payment for 2 kids for one of her kids camps she had while she lived in Alberta. She then moved to her ranch and horse camps to BC. I went there for the summer before I started grade 10. I seen Buddy and fell in love with him and claimed him as mine, and no one said otherwise, as we seemed to have a special connection. He was officially given to me as a gift for helping out with all of the camps over the years and as a graduation gift in April of 2011. Buddy finally came home to me in Alberta on October 13th 2013. Since then he has moved from the show barn in Edmonton, back to my hometown area, and where he is actually from (Grande Prairie) area..

✞ my goodness, what a drive into work this morning…I got up at 4:30 am and by the time I left at 6 am we received 2” of rain already. It is to rain all day soooo guess you know what that means. Weather folks say to look at the bright side-we are no longer in a drought! Yesterday it was partly cloudy and some sun and the wind was blowing pretty good so I thought it was going to dry us some~NOT~ the herd enjoyed turn out and I had to fly spray them a little and they were happy. Happy trails and Have a wonderful day ♡

This happened last week, just a few miles north of my house. So sorry this is long, but I had to share this with all of you, Evil. Don't know how anyone could do such a horrible thing. I left a vote, too.....Tandra Hefley posted this on her Facebook page.
Ok everyone so here's what happened about 2 am regarding the horse. I am extremely tired, so if I don't explain any of it well, please just ask and I will try to explain a different way.

I was headed home on 331st ave going north. Just as I was almost to Sunland Ave I saw what looked like a roll of carpet or maybe a large cardboard box. I swerved around it and decided I should remove it from the road so someone else wouldn't hit it. I turned around, pulled up about 10 feet from it with my headlights aimed at it, and went to get it. When I was a few feet away, the horse raised its head and nickered to me. I almost threw up! This poor animal was hog tied like a kidnap victim would be! Her front legs were tied, the nylon strap went to her back legs, then over her back to her throat. If she tried to move the strap would choke her. I didn't have a knife, so I tried to pull enough slack to get it off one hoof. She would panic when it tightened on her throat and I would have to stop. There was a car headed in our direction so I frantically pull on it and she trusted me enough to get one leg free. Then I quickly undid the rest and tried to get her to stand. She has deep cuts in her legs and throat from fighting, but I did get her up. That's when I saw the hair and blood on the pavement. Somebody had hit her as she lay helpless on the road. I slowly walked her to the side of the road and started calling people for help. Shawn Funkhouser got my trailer and came to help me. It took her two tries, but she loaded like a champ! We got her to my house and called MCSO. They came and made a report as well as called the Felony Animal Crimes Division to make sure whoever did this pays for it! This morning about 7 Natasja Pieters Robbins came and made a report for the Dept of Agriculture Livestock. She is already working to find the person who did this.

As injured as this poor mare is, she never tried to bite or kick me. She did everything I asked of her, even though she is in more pain than I even want to imagine. She has been starved for at least the last year. She is about 600 lbs under weight. She was tied and left to die on a dark road. She was hit by a car and her skin ripped off on the pavement. But she will walk right up and give horse kisses. She will nickered at me as soon as she sees me. And she allows me to clean and doctor her dozens of wounds without protest. No animal should have to endure what this sweet, kind, beautiful, and loving mare has had to endure!

Thank you to Angie Shelley Bassett, Frank Joseph Cooper Jr., T.j. Furness, and Pat Page for your help as well!

I put the other shelf up. So nice to have a place for my my horsey brushes, hoof picks, fly spray, etc. The shingles aren't on, yet. Austin and a friend are finishing it up for me. With school, an overload of homework and work, it's hard for Austin to have the time. He's done with School on the 22nd. Will have it finished, then. Love always and a vote.

Hi everyone, sorry I have not been on, as you all know Jack the goat had a relapse, today was going to be a difficult day, the vet is coming to the barn for everyone's wellness checks and shots, today I was gonna have to be judge and jury for Jack but I am happy to say he is back on his feet walking and foraging in a slow motion manner but that is okay,occasionally he stumbles and I have to go pick him up but strength will come with time, praise God he got a reprieve from the almighty Judge !! on the flip side, Lilly got a bath yesterday, so did I LOL, she gets her shots today and hopefully a clean bill of health, the gal that gave me a lesson on trailer loading said Lilly needs to see a chiropracter, she said it feels like there something off on the r
right side of her neck up by her poll, her daughter does this kind of work so I have a call into her to talk about it and schedule an appt. I am getting ready to take Lilly for a spin in the trailer this week yay, but here is a ? for Everyone, do you tie or not tie your horses in the trailer, the gal who gave me a lesson does not, alot of yes and no's on the internet, not sure what I am suppose to do, any suggestions ??? love you all, Lilly and Suzie

Sorry I haven't been on in a while. I have been dealing with lots of different things, with my Mom, my sister and my daughter. So much happening right now. The weather is terrible. Lots of rain everyday. Our pasture flooded on Tuesday, however the water has gone down now, but the rain has not stopped. Hope you have a great weekend, if possible.

My apologies for not having been on HC much, taking care of Jack is exhausting, God Bless those who are care givers,took him to the Vet on Monday,our appt was at 10, saw the Dr. at 12, a dog had gotten hit by a car and broke both legs so they were working on the poor guy, God has taught me patience for sure, sat in the Horse trailer with him and just did nothing, how many times can a person just do nothing, it was actually okay, because I was sooooo tired, we are upping his vitamim B, and wormed him for Barber pole worms, if he can't stand up and motivate by the 21st then he wont be, that is when the vet comes out for my wellness spring visit, he did have alot more activity going on this morning with movements, she said he may jut have to manyholes in his brain to recover this time, that is what the disease does, makes holes in the brain, I have been riding just about every night to spend time with my girl and clear my mind, my body is done, Jack is well over 130 lbs and to flip him around several times a day and try and stand him up everyday is harder and harder, on Wens I have a friend coming over to teach me how to load Lilly, she is a Parrelli instructor, her specialty is trailer loading , I am so excited, I may even trailer over this weekend to some friends house and give it a test run if all goes well, sure need the break, love you all have a beautiful day Suz and Lilly

Like the new pics!
Still tired today, and a bit sore. 6 hrs of groundwork is HARD WORK. The only time Cisco had a problem was at the very end. We were working on the 6 ways to lead your horse without using the halter (rope around each foot, rope around the barrel - no problems, he likes to follow me) and THEN, rope around the flank. He has NEVER tolerated anything around the flank area, and blew up. Steve took him in hand and lunged him with a flank rope till he settled down (tight when bucking, immediate release when he stopped bucking). Then while he was explaining the technique, Cisco calmly raised first one hind foot, then the other, pulled the rope down and stepped out it.

Start spring clean up...
Good morning, it is suppose to be a nice day, I got most of the inside work done yesterday so I can "work/play" outside today, I hate the look of all the old hay laying around from over winter, I will start to pick away at cleaning up the paddock areas. I am going to toss out some grass seed too. The bird "flu" will most definitely affect my work, a lot of these birds that are being destroyed were scheduled for processing at our plant, so as the quarantines are added, until they are lifted we won't be processing, right now we are killing birds that are not under quarantine, this will be a lengthy process. I'm just hoping we have it contained. Have a great day, left a vote, Love Donna Lee

H5 Avian Influenza
It has been a very tough week, my heart aches for the loss of birds. I understand that this must be contained.We are following very strict biosecurity measures at the plant and of course the farms that are still operating. We process birds from all over Ontario. Several in our area are under quarantine, which can not be lifted until the farm tests negative for 21 consecutive days. So clearly this is going to have an impact on my work. We are still operating, but as the birds become less and less we will have some down days for sure. Several countries have ban import of Canadian poultry in the meantime. They believe this is a result of migrating wild bird and some how a barn became contaminated, however it spreads like wildfire. We left a vote, Love Donna Lee

HI, left a vote. Well Zip finished his first week of school. He did great, so very proud of him. As a reward for his great first week, he got to be turned out today! He was happy! I think she plans to get on him next week, not sure, but I think so. My wrist is still really bothering me, so I plan on staying off everything and resting it this weekend. So, have a great weekend everyone, I will be back on Monday.

Rode Dash today. Loped the barrel pattern, he did really well! Then we trail rode for like an hour, I got a bad sunburn lol:) Dash was awesome, we incorporated lots of bending and rating exercises into our ride. I let him almost out into a dead run, he loved it! He's so fun to ride; he's not perfect, he tests me, makes me think and work. it's always the most challenging horses that have the most to give you anyways:)

Hi Buddy, here's a vote for ya. He's looking very good. WOW that tail and mane sure have grown is right! And another drizzly day out there! Not really rain, but just heavy mist and drizzle, so it's not that bad on the moisture! Got Indy lunged again and Bullseye on free time in the indoor. Went over to Lunge and do the showmanship pattern that will be part of the Showmanship Challenge with total prizes of over $2500 to the top ten! Marissa was there, but confined to a chair and cleaning her tack! Said I guess this is as good it gets for a few more days. She got checked out yesterday by the doctor and due to being a horse trainer, can't ride until after the weekend. But she's in good spirits. Marion and the blondes.
