Appaloosa Horse from Blacksburg, VA

Rambunctious Raylem

About Me

Active within 3632 Days

I am from Blacksburg, VA and I've been a Club Horse member for 10 years, 7 months and 5 days

Nicknames: Ray Ray, Big Red, Big boy, Bogger Butt, Pudgey Butt, Mr Fatty, Fattylicious, Tubbalub.

Age: 26 years old

Gender: Gelding

Breed: Appaloosa Horse

Height: 15hh

Color: He is a Chestnut with a star and a snip. He also has a light dun stripe. Even though he is solid colored he has a few appaloosa traits, he's got some spots scarttered on his body, moltted skin under his tail and the white seclara around his eyes.

Type of Riding: Going to start some Reining!, Western pleasure(ish), bareback and trails mostly, Obstacle courses. I use a one eared headstall on him, with a long shank curb bit. My western saddle is made by Custom Ranch Saddlery and its leather is rough side out kinda like suede so its really gripping. I had shoes on him this summer to help keep his feet together after he had foundered and went lame, But now he's barefoot for the winter.

My Horse's Achievements: We did "Join-up" together, he can now officially jog! Trailer loads freely and easy. Ties and ground ties, stands for the farrier, vet, and baths. He has started doing some jumping, he's not that great but pretty good. Being cinched up with no problems, Not afraid of umbrellas, or tarps.

My Horse's Favorite Treat: Soft peppermint sticks, Dried bannana chips, Dried apples, green icey pops, watermellon rind peices, corn flakes, apples, one of my home made treats: Sweet Tortilla scoops!

My Horse's Favorite Things To Do: Eat grass, sleep, go on trail rides, have his belly scratched, test out my new treat ideas, get a bath, use the massager on him. Play in the round pen.

Pet Peeves: His ears being clipped (we are working on that one), bugs irritate him, young horses, Me messing up while were riding.

My Horse's motto: "Eat your grass cause it really can disappear!" P.S. Don't forget to check out my great pics at the bottom of my page that my mommy took of me!

How We Met

Well I have only had my horse for 2 and a half years, so not really a long time. I got him when he was 13. So here's the story:
While I was in high school my bus turned around in front of a horse farm and I had this little "dream" and was determined that I would get a job, or help out there so that I could ride and be around horses. Well my mom took me out there one weekend. and the lady who owned the horses wasn't there but her roomate gave her my message and would have her call me. Later that week Jam (the owner) called me and asked me about my horse experience and all that, and then asked me to come out that weekend and meet her and the horses. (YEAH! Dream come true!) She liked me and liked how I handled horses and all. So I started helping her with lessons and taking care of the horses. Thats when Raylem came into the picture. He was kind of a loner, didn't really care for people, he wanted his food and that was it. Some of Jams students would come out just to ride him and not really love on him or anything. I fell in love with him, so I started working with him when I wasn't helping Jam with any of the other horses. I loved him even though he was a brat! Later that year Jam's father had a stroke and they started downsizing their farm and I was heartbroken when I found out that they needed to sell Raylem. I went home crying to my mom, I just knew that I would never get to see him again. So my mom talked to Jam and her dad to find out what it would take for us to get Raylem. They made a deal with us that if we could come up with $400 in two weeks Raylem was mine. OMG! I started saving every penny doing all sorts of odd jobs and such to get the money, my mom helped me out some. We managed to get the money together, and that was it! We signed the Bill of sale and he was mine! I still remember loading him on the trailer and bringing him home!

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!

that sounds like soo much fun!! i would love to take pearl on a trail ride in the snow! but in oregon we dont get alot of snow it just gets cold. and it rains alot and then it freezes. and so we can't go out on trails very often cause of the slippery forzen mud. I love to ride in the winter especially cause when u ride bareback both horse and rider are soo warm. you got my vote! blog back soon.

Come visit me, Jag.
