How We Met

**We lost Monkey in a tragic accident. We aren't sure if he coliced or was cast in his stall, but due to major complications with his gut rupturing, he had to be humanely euthanised. Mo will always remain special to me and will always have a place in my heart. May him and Dreamer live on forever over rainbow bridge. <3

My previous horse, rest his soul, passed away in November of 2005 and I was in need of a new best friend. I had looked at probably 20 horses and wasn't feeling anything. I got a phone call from a friend of mine who had a horse at his barn who was there as a sale horse for someone else, but they decided they didn't want him. That night I left work early and went to see him. I got on him and rode him around. I wasn't amazingly impressed, but I didn't hate him. His impulsion and movement were unique too. I went out to ride him again and actually work with him on the ground and actually felt really bad for him. No one really did much with him and he seemed headshy. I also just had a feeling he was special. Well, when the papers were signed and he was officially mine, he turned into a nightmare. He must have been drugged when we tried him becaus ehe wouldn't stand on cross ties without rearing and was a little devil under saddle, scared of someone on his back. People tried convincing me to sell him or drug him, but I was too scared to know where he'd go if I did sell him since he was dangerous, so I kept him and we worked it out. Moved to a new barn and viola! With a little extra time and training, he became a lovely companion and is even starting to shine as a show horse!

********************SHILOH FOR HOTD!!~~***********
Hey! I was wondering if you could come visit Shiloh. Shiloh is the horse I ride and am going to lease in 2 weeks. Shiloh is trying to get HOTD. He is deserving of HOTD because: Shiloh is a quarter horse/fjord cross, I am helping train him, he is super cute, has wonderful ground manners, and is already close to my heart after being in my life for only three weeks. Shiloh and I will be competing together all Summer long, and I will be riding him every other day. Even if you dont vote for him, Shiloh loves to make friends and would love your note. Thanks! Have a vote! .:SHILOH:. ;^)

Come visit me, ♥Shiloh ♥, ♥Belle ♥(retired), Snowball ♥ HOTD??!! & ♦Lucky Love ♦.

he is soo cute! when i bought my pony sadie they had had a little kid riding her when she was 7 and i guess they druged her with bkalm because when i brought her back she was "a little" hyper! they also lied by saying that she was a perfect little angel in the walk trot class. well not that quite because she bucked me off in all of my classes and in one i got hung! it was really scary! if she would have picked a foot up i would have been kicked in the head! i love her now and she is my best friend but i hope her owners won't lie to anyone else because that fall could have easily turned into a bad situation if she decided to bolt! here is a vote!

Come visit me, Jackson.

Thanks for Drae's comment! Funky Monkey is such an awesome name. I do eventing, too, but with my other horse Honey. I'm hoping Drae will learn to be a good jumper but hes kind of lazy with his feet and he always bucks a little after each jump. Haha. Yeah the way we met is weird but its totally good Karma. Hahaha

Come visit me, Drae & Honey.
