Height: Under 15 HH

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.

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

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. He especially likes to play this game when I am on my days off and travel into the city so the other girls at the barn have to leave him outside until I get home!

Pet Peeves: Bugs!

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 in Alberta. She then moved to her ranch in BC, where I went 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..

☆ Deacon and I had a really nice ride at Lake Whitney Saturday. We rode alone. That was the first time in sooo long that I have rode alone& we so enjoyed it. With Christmas upon us this week I know everyone is busy but I would like to ask that you at least leave a silent vote for Deacon if you don’t have time for much other! We thank all of you for this amazing support so far ♡ Have a wonderful day! Whinnies & hugs =)

BREATHING A BIT EASIER...
Good Morning, I am feeling a bit better, I found an amazing website with some fabulous info on ulcer diets, I have been suffering from information overload, but I think I have finally sorted thru this and started Charlie on some new "healing foods" One item that is particularly healing is dried cabbage, which of course, can not be found in Canada, so I borrowed a dehydrator from a friend at work and I'm drying my own. Pumpkin seed is another good food as well as oat flour and rice bran. He is now off ALL of the grain feed that he was getting and he is slowly starting to eat his new stuff, as long as he keeps eating his hay we are good. He is a bit picky and doesn't except new readily... This will take time but I'm told that if I hang in, I will have a happier horse, that is my goal. Love and a vote Donna Lee

♥ I am off work this weekend. We pick up Whiskey today at 2pm. We will all feel so much better when he gets home. His eye needed to be doctored 2 times a day is why he stayed so long. I go to work before the sun comes up so I would have only been able to get it doctored 1 time a day. His final doctoring will be tomorrow. I do plan to ride Deacon at Lake Whitney tomorrow. I am hoping Lizzy will go so Rocket can go as well. I will phone vote everyone Sunday though so please vote each day and silent votes are so welcomed as well! Have a wonderful weekend <)__~

Still battling this cold. The worst of it is over. I didn't ride. It was late when Stephanie made it over. Almost dark. When Stephanie rode Sadie, I went inside, because I was too much of a distraction. Sadie behaves much better when she doesn't have an audience. She concentrates on what she's suppose to be doing. As soon I walked outside, she tried to come to me. Stephanie said she's a momma's girl. I say she's spoiled. Lol. Have a blessed weekend. Love hugs and a vote.

☆ As I have mentioned before, I have learned so much with Deacon and of course Whiskey & Rocket. Each horse has brought knowledge to me that has its own value. I think we all carry a special place for that 1st horse that is hard to describe ♥ the 1st year ½ I went trail riding, I experienced penning & cutting cows but my favorite has always been trail riding. Have a great Thursday ~Whinny’s & hugs ☆

♡ When I got Deacon he had previously pastured on Bill’s brothers property with 3 other horses. All 3 others horses were taken in to have sarcoid tumors removed. Deacon had a small knot on his left flank that I had Doc Edward’s check out. He said to leave it alone until it started to change or he could remove for cosmetic reasons if I wanted. I choose to wait. I don’t show my horses and I wasn’t interested giving Deacon Surgery after just newly purchasing him. It didn’t bother him either. Several years ago I did have it removed. It started to change. Doc had learned how to also prevent future ones as well. This method is to take a small piece of the tumor and put it in the neck area. You can’t even tell where the cut on his flank was now. In his knot he actually had 2 small tumors in it.
Equine Sarcoid:

Sarcoid tumors are the most common skin tumor in horses. These tumors are unique in that they are the product of infection with Bovine Papilloma Virus (BPV), which is probably transmitted by flies. Many horses can be infected with this virus, but no two horses will express it in the same way. Tumor appearance and size can vary greatly between horses, and even on the same horse; similarly, response to different treatments can be highly variable. Tumors can originate at the site of a wound or tack rub, and originally present as a wound that isn't healing; on the lower limbs, they also are often mistaken for proud flesh. Though sarcoids are the most common skin tumor of horses, they are also one of the most misunderstood maladies of horses.

Happy to see Buddy is Home!!
Well this week has been pretty interesting...learning some new things at work, won some concert tickets to Neal McCoy also at work. We get our Christmas bonus this week, yeah! Also this week when we got home from the pasture there were people on horses at our neighbors house. We went over to see and we knew them from when we kept our horses in the back of our subdivision. One of the horses was Ace's sire named Gunner. We were amazed at how much they looked alike. Gunner is still a stud and has the same disposition as Ace. Leaving a vote. Enjoy your week.

Hey Buddy & Jasmine! Sorry it's been a few days since I was online. We've been having rain off and on again this week..Monday-Wednesday so I got Koot out to roll and hang out with him a bit before this storm came in. It was still pretty muddy after that big rain Thurs/Friday so I haven't been able to ride in a little :( I'm soo happy for the rain but it's been a bummer not getting Koot out much. How are you doing? Voted. XOXO Danya and Koot

Hi Buddy, here's a vote for ya. OMG I would have been freaking out driving the truck and trailer with my horse in it and hit ice! I would have probably went and camped out in a truck stop till it got better! Oh No, you lose your ring? Sorry to hear that. See Buddy likes his new home. Is he good at getting his head in and out of that pipe fence without panicking? My guys would probably kill themselves if they did that. What a busy, sunny and warm day today. It hit 45 and felt like spring time with the sun shinning so nice. Farrier was here buy 9 am and got Paige new shoes and Indy a trim. After he left, I had to take Beast down to the dealer and have them put the plates on it and finish up on the rest of the registration costs. Got home and it was so nice, saddled up Paige and we had a beautiful training session. Got done with her and realized oh oh, I have the chiropractor in less than an hour. So it was hay and fresh water for lunch for them. Run in the house, change cloths and clean up. Took Beast for the ride, she purrs! The hit Wally World for a little grocery shopping and home I came. Good thing I rested up yesterday, cause I was on the move all day today! LOL! Marion and the blondes.

Sorry about your ring, but so glad you made it home safely and Buddy is settling in. Can't even imagine pulling a trailer in all that. Hope Rob's interview goes well. Unseasonably warm here, 1/4" of rain yesterday so a bit muddy this AM, but a beautiful sunshiny day and nearly 70. Hoping to work horses tomorrow, and maybe ride Weds if it doesn't rain.

I sure hope you find yur ring but happy Buddy is settled in now ☆ Deacon’s registered name is “One More Special”, he surely is one special horse to me. Deacon was born with what people call a “prophet’s thumb”. It is an indention on the right side of his neck. I’m told it is from him lying on his hoof while in his mother’s womb. We thank you for your support during this HOTM run =) Have a wonderful day! Whinnies & hugs =) P.S. hoping to pick up Whiskey today!

(}—{) We ended up getting a light sprinkle Thursday evening. After I went to Tractor Supply & the grocery store Lizzy came over and we had a really nice ride on Rocket and Deacon. Whiskey is at the equine hospital staying a few days. He scratched his eye somehow. I really don’t know how or why he does that so much but the other 2 never do???? Any way Doc says he is doctoring it 2x’s a day with an antibiotic and giving banamine 1 time a day. Cliff may pick him up today or Monday. It is so hard putting meds in their eyes. I can do once its under control. I just can’t stand to touch his eye when it hurts so much. He took him in Thursday Morning so hopefully he can come home today. I miss him and so does Deacon and Rocket. Whinny’s, love, hugs and we left you a vote…..

☆ I have the same farrier for all these years and I have the same equine vet so my horses have really good care. I am very thankful that I can give my horses the best I can provide. Again Deacon started this journey for me and I have learned so much. I have learned how to pick hooves, clean sheaths, scoop poop, bath them from head to hoof, load, doctor eyes and cuts…and the list goes on! I have read and studied so much as well. The journey with the horses never ends and you can always learn more. I am off work tomorrow so I will phone vote as many as possible. There is a 20% chance of rain so I’m not sure if I will get to ride. I do have to run and pick up feed and stop by the grocery store, maybe a little final Christmas shopping.

Thank you for the get well wishes. I never get sick, but when I do, blech. Lol. Hoping everyone who's under the weather, is feeling better, soon, too...... I did manager a short ride on Sadie, Wednesday. What an amazing feeling to be in the saddle! I forgot about being sick. A friend, who's an experienced rider, came out and rode her, too. I said professional rider, on facebook, because if you have a horse, everyone wants to bring their kids out to ride. Sadie needs work. Not risking accidents.... Stephanie rode Sadie out front. She was amazing. She trotted, cantered and was so good, until she got spooked. She was nervy, possibly coyotes. There's a large den nearby. She bucked hard, and Stephanie hit the ground. She said she was fine, got back on and rode her for a few minutes more. She said she and Sadie need to get to know one another. I'm thinking that's true. Sadie's good with me, but she loves me. She'd better. Lol. Leaving love and a vote.

♡ Oh the joy of shopping for our horses-it is too much fun. Once you get the saddle that fits your horse and you, you must then buy saddle pads and bridles and reins and halters and all things to match, to include YOU! Next I had to have the right pants (the right length), boots, shirts and of course my cowgirl hat! Now I had to shop for another horse for Cliff! What fun the horsey world is. I did find another horse but it wasn’t the right one for him. I sold him and Cliff found Rocket. What a match. He and Deacon got along so well. Then it was time to shop for Rocket!!!
