How We Met

After my gelding was taken from me, Nelly came into my life. She was a good companion and great friend. She taught me so much more than any other horse has. The only reason I got her was because I felt I owed it to my parents. They were trying so hard to soothe my broken heart, so I bought her. She turned out to be one of the most beautiful, loving, hard working horses I have ever seen. Her eyes were so deep; it was like you were looking into the fountain of youth--so clear and sweet. We got into many accidents in which Nell was hurt. One ended up in a bowed tendon while another ended up worse. Once Nelly impaled herself on a tree branch. Luckily, her ribs stopped the wood before it hit any organs. In the end, Nell deteriorated so fast due to a hard life of working cattle in the sun. Her eyesight went bad; Navicular plagued her front hooves. There was a lump in her uterus, probably a tumor. There was a blockage in her spine that made her hind end weak and swollen. I couldnt watch her lose weight every day. Even after I got Bud back she got worse and worse. There were some weeks she felt so good that she would run and buck and play. I didn't stop her. This was her retirement; she was supposed to have fun. Supplements and love kept her with me two years later than she would have been if I hadn't spent every last ounce of my energy on making her feel good. Finally I couldn't help my little girl anymore. She's buried in the backyard now, and every mother's day I put a rose on her grave and tell her how much she meant to me. Throughout all our adventures and troubles she trusted me. She loved me..

Sorry about Nellie
It is very sad to lose one of your family even if that family member had four legs. I am really sorry for your loss.

Your horse is GORGIOUS! Come and see Guusje, a fantastic, beautiful Fjord stallion who excells at dressage! He and Jolanda are also models! He is one of my FAVORITE horses in the whole wide world! I'd LOVE for him to get Horse of the Day so if you could vote for him I'll return the favor! Also, if you find anything on his profile that seems confusing or you'd like to see changed, please blog me! I am continually searching for more information on this wonderful horse and I will be updating his profile with more pics and information frequently! Thanks so much!

and it is hard to be strong.
but we all have each other to lean a shoulder and to cry on......

and a horse is the best cause they can't tell you

"you talk to much!!!"
"feed me and shut up"


but talk to you later bye

she loved you too
I can read eyes.. its a gift passed down throw generations... she loved you too... she wanders with you. you feel a whispy warmth while wandering near someplace with green field... and some kind of pink flowers although not roses... unless wild... she misses the soft touch under her left arm you gave... for some reason that was a sore spot for her...she's also near a little boy maybe 4 yrs old... protecting... he;s an adventurous one. sorry rambling... but may you always feel the love she feels for you

I don't let most of them unless they have had about 2 years of riding lessons. But if they havent i dont let them esp if he is in a crappy mood. They are scared of Andy too because they have seen me get bucked off(Wynne too) but yeah Rex is almost bomb proof but he will still shy at somethings though. HEre is a vote:) TTYL

Rexy is my best friend but i hate it when my friends ride him because all they want to do is canter and gallop and they are not experienced enough for Andy. Here is a vote:)
