Arabian from Grande Prairie, AB


About Me

Active within 19 Days

I am from Grande Prairie, AB and I've been a Club Horse member for 8 years, 2 months and 21 days

Nicknames: Bud, Monster, Goober

Age: 14 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..

Hi Buddy
We'll be able to work this weekend...
Well, it may be very wet, but we can work on the land. My dad will be welding the entry while we trim trees. A lot of trees, it's for the electric I think. We've got about 900 feet to trim, so that's gonna be more than a one day deal. I have also decided to re-home one of my pets. "Ammo" he is my 4 pound chihuahua. I've had him for over a year, and he's a lot of work. Taking him outside, he always wants to be on my lap. It's so annoying. But he's gonna have a good home. My grandma is a dog lover and she wants him. So I'll be able to see him several times a year. So, that worked out good. And, yesterday I gave Darbs a grooming. He was dirty, and he had burs stuck in his mane and tail. His hooves were all soggy too, you know when hooves are too wet, it's starts peeling white. So, no rainmaker for a good while. Down to the last eight days of my HOTM run. Woo, getting close! We appreciate all the kind encouraging words and votes! Have a blessed Friday, almost the weekend, day! Love to all

I need to set a schedule with the farrier. It's a very busy time of year for him. When I was young, Daddy use to trim mine and my sister's horses' hooves. Never had to call on anyone. Still learning new things......I've got a lot of extra hours at work next week. With Thanksgiving, next Thursday, it's going to be busy. I'm scheduled for 3 to close that day. I go in earlier a couple of days, too. I'll be on HC as much as possible. Love to each of you and a vote. <3

Its rainy and muddy, sometimes we get a warm wind, or a crazy winds, not sure it knows what it wants to do, Lilly and the goat boys are great, been doing alot of walking with them as it's pretty slippery, a friend and I are starting on the new stall area today, Im excited, it will make for a larger sleeping area or a place I can feed everybody whenit starts snowing or really pouring, had a water line break under the house, glad it did it now and not in below 30* weather, its fixed but its a mess with nsulation, need to get under the house and repair the insulation before the freezing weather comes, have a great week, Suz, Lilly and the goat boys

I'm so sorry I haven't been blogging or voting for everyone each and everyday during my run for HOTM. I'm gonna try and blog everyone back as much as I can. The riding clinic went really great with Candy and looking forward to another one. Hopefully going riding tonight, looking forward to it. Weather has been cold and warm here in Saskatchewan!! Today is cold and I think we will be expecting snow eventually. Just doing more upgrading on math and hoping to go to olds college in the fall. Farrier came out last week wendnsday and the farrier said Candys feet were good till next time he came out. Had a dusty riders 4-h meeting this past Saturday and the ride went really good. We were planning stuff for the 4-h Christmas party on Dec. 5th. Starting to get ready for Christmas we started decorating the outside of my house and hopefully gonna do the inside in the next few weeks. Candy and Payday are doing well. They hope everyone can forgive them for not replying to all there friends. They left a vote for all your horses. They both love all of you and they want to thank you for your continued support during Paydays HOTM run.

good to hear from you and very happy that you have Buddy with you again. I have never fed that before but I'd throw it away or just give a little each day until it's gone. Give it to someone else that may use it!

Happy Saturday!
Sorry if didn't blog or vote you yesterday. My computer was down and when I went to do it on my phone, it quit too. Yesterday was beautiful, perfect fall temps. Just a light jacket weather. It's about fully dry out here, so that's great. Let's just hope we don't get anymore late Sunday or Monday. We're going to wok o our land today. The rain has been a burden, since we're still working on getting a driveway out there. We got stuck a couple of times, luckily we have a tractor to pull out and 4 wheel drive. But it sure leaves big ruts. Hope your doing well! Thank you for the HOTM support! Votes and kind comments, thank you!!! Best wishes, have a great day!

We just got a little sprinkle of rain yesterday, but that was all. Though, you could see storms surrounding us. It was pretty amazing. Lightning in a pink-ish cloud, that one was fascinating. Darby is doing good. For two whole days he's remained clean, I'm thrilled! We are going out to our land today. We are having road base dumped -4 loads= and my brother is going to spread it out with our tractor. So, hopefully no more rain so we can work. We are most likely gonna have a red barn put together, the ones that you put panels in yourself. So, we think that's the best buy for us. We've gotten 174 votes so far. I think we're doing well. Thank you, I'm sending you love and a tap on your horseshoe.

Leaving an early morning vote for you! Yesterday evening was beautiful, dark skies, cool air with a breeze. My favorite weather type of all time! Darby got a good brush down yesterday evening too. Hid hooves were really hard. All that sticky clay mud. But his coat wasn't too awful. We thank you for your support!!! Love to all

***Thank You So Much For Your Support***
Loping by with some Tuesday morning votes. A bit earlier than usual. I'm always up early, so it's just me and my computer. Hope everyone had a great Monday. Yesterday I didn't get to ride, but I may today. Darby stayed clean, well sort of. He still has some mud on him, but not totally covering him. There is a chance of rain this week, but it may miss us. So I'm praying it moves on past. I was thinking about dressing Darby up for Christmas. I know it's like 40 something days away, but I thank I just might. I think it'll be a blast! Of course, if I do I'll post pics. Darby's is growing a tiny winter coat, not too fuzzy and shaggy yet. But soon. I love horse's winter coats, they are just so cute. But the summer sleek coats are so beautiful. Especially the shiny ones. I'm very please with our HOTM run as of today. We've received over 135 votes. I'm lucky to have such loyal pals! You guys are the best! Love Lindsay & Darby!!! Best wishes

Charlie and I had a wonderful ride yesterday. The scary corn is gone and most of the corn around us is off too, so the traffic on our road is less this week. Charlie doesn't do well when things are different so last week with all the traffic from the corn and it was also hunt week, he was a bit on edge. Have a great day, we have rain coming in today, Love Donna Lee

Sore muscles. Austin and I took a broken corral panel down. Made Sadie's corral a little smaller. She still has a lot of room. Going to invest in more panels, later.She enjoyed being out of the corral. After checking out what we were doing, she ran and farted a lot. Lol. Have a blessed day. Love and a vote.

Finally rode Big Jax on Friday no sore tailbone. Yeah!! Rode with the other ladies from the barn on Sat. Took a little side ride. (Not to far as it is hunting season.) They have been pulling large rocks out of the ground and flagging the holes. BJ did great until we turned around and saw them with the other eye. I had flash backs to when he was 2 1/2 and our first ride. He was okay once the other horses was by it. Then tried to eat it. LOL Vicki & Big Jax

Good to hear from you! Thanks for the vote
Again, it's chilly this Monday morning. Yesterday I gave Darby a good brush down. It took a while, that's for sure. But it was fun, I just grab my brushes and hoof pick, sing my favorite songs and get to work. I think I might have found a great riding spot! I was riding our 4 wheeler and suddenly realized that the path I was riding on could work for horses. So, yay!!! Next Sunday is suppose to be colder than usual. High thirties in the am and low fifties in the pm. So, I was working on getting better pics of me jumping. But the computer that its on is packed in one of our storage containers... at our land. So... I will just have to wait until we find that one box. Darby likes this cooler weather, he's more frisky! I bet if I ride today he'll have some act-up moments. But, I'm still hoping he will behave. We're doing great on our votes so far. Thank you very much... we're really working hard for this win! Leaving you a tap on your horseshoe to start off your week. Best wishes. Hope you have a blessed day!

Good to hear from you and glad you have Buddy with you at the barn and it's a good place to work.
I've never fed wheat bran either, but since you only have 1 bag, I'd feed only a little bit each day so it's not a big change to add it or take it away when it's finished. Do you soak his beet pulp? If you do, maybe you could add a cup of the wheat bran to the soaking pulp. Or, you could throw the bag away and not bother with it.
Well, it's raining, windy, and chilly here, so no horse time. But hope you're doing well and have a good monday.

I got a bit of a bag of wheat bran from a lady at the barn, how should I go about feeding it to Buddy?? Once he gets settled in I will be restarting him on his Step 5 feed with Hoffmans minerals & glucosamine, with a bit of beet pulp. Along with the Gut Nutriotion Formula (GNF (in Canada) I plan on re-introducing this to gradually as to not shock his system more then I already have. He is in "quarantine for 7-10 days" before he moves over to the other side of the barn, where his "Perma house" is…

I just want to possibly use up this wheat bran before it goes bad, and I'm not quite sure how to go about it as I've never really fed it before!!! Thank you everyone in advance for your advice. I have been googling it, but I Trust you guys more!!

Happy Sunday!!!
Leaving cold Sunday morning votes. Skies are really pretty this morning, as the sun is rising. Pink, mostly, but what a work of art? Darby got all muddy again, last night I saw him and... I just gotta say I've got some work to do today. Still no riding, still wet and gross out. In the horse pasture there are so many holes, from all the hoof prints. So far we've gotten 118 votes. Thank you all, it means so much!

I'll tell you all a little bit about Darby's past... of what I know. Once the lady arrived at our place she told us about Darby. She said she rescued him from this lady who rode and did english with him. I'm not sure if she even rode him western. Amy (the lady we bought him from) said he was skin and bones. That made me really sad. Amy said the lady didn't abuse him but she didn't feed him. Amy owned Darby for a year (i think) and she slowly got him to a good weight. You know, it takes a long time to put weight on a horse. Darby is always rushing and pushy around his food, so maybe that's why he is. He's afraid he wont get enough. Amy said he would be a great barrel horse, but actually he's more of an english horse. I know Amy said he was 12 years old, but the vet told us he is 17-19. I went with the younger, of course. I'm so glad to have my boy, he's such a blessing. Love to all*

Dropping by with a Saturday morning vote! Darbs is going to get his feet trimmed today, then me and my sister are going to help at the stables we volunteer at. Grooming and bathing all the horses. I did ground work with Darbs yesterday morning. He was an excellent boy! I got him to not over jump as much, I guess he just thinks it's higher than it really is. But after a couple times, he was jumping like a pro. Also lunged him, he was frisky. So happy for cooler weather, we're getting glimpses of fall! Hope all is well! Love always, best wishes for all!

We had a great family reunion, at the coast, I asked our neighbor girl who is new to the area if she wanted a end of the summer job taking care of the farm critters, she accepted and I showed her the ropes, it was the first going away where I was not concerned about their well being the whole time I was gone, ( she has horses too ) I was sure happy to see everyone when I got back though, made Lilly a new pasture area right off the barnyard when I got back with the help of some of the guys that work for us on the orchard, it has shade tree's up there, she seems to like it ! suppose to get two days of 90* weather this week gag, nights are sure alot cooler though, Love Suz and Lilly

Katie, Erika, and I went riding in the tilled grass seed field behind our barn. It was fun! Been awhile since we went on a "trail" ride lol She did good and I was able to snap a pic of Erika on her and another of my view looking between her ears (I uploaded them onto Katie's profile page tonight). Erika is finally tall enough that I can adjust my western saddle's stirrups to her length. It's the same saddle my dad bought me 30 years ago when I was her age!
