How are you doing? It's a very busy time of year and I've been running around like a headless chicken. I haven't ridden this week and I didn't get a chance last week either. But I have driven Pippin a few times and done a few more races with Melian. Of course, she always wins with ease now.

We lost another of our dogs last week so our Christmas will be a little sad as a first without either Tiny and now Minnie. Minnie was my sister's dog but we were close and I took care of her just as much. She went blind suddenly on the 13th and then went into liver failure. We all miss her so much.

But there is happy news too. My sister couldn't be without a dog so she already has a new puppy. He's a little Yorkshire Terrier with a touch of Maltese and she named him Kermit. He's so adorable and feisty and he and Melian were instant friends at first sight. She's literally 10 times his size but she plays with him and is ever so gentle. And Kermit wandered over to Pippin today so they've also met. Pippin doesn't seem to mind him. I think Melian thinks that Kermit is the best Christmas present ever.

I hope you have a wonderful Christmas with all of your family and friends close by you. Leaving you a special Christmas vote.

Come visit me, Prince, Pippin (Remembering Melian) & Eddie.

Thank you so much for voting for Shadowfax for hotd. He won yesterday and it was so neat to see his beautiful form in the spotlight. He's been an HC member for 2 years now and this is a pretty nice way to celebrate.

No, you actually met him? I'm so jealous. Do you know which one you met? Was he Blanco?

I love shiny new photos of Pattie. She sure is something. I so hope that you can get a foal out of her some day.

I just finished and uploaded a video of Melian (my dog) running her heart out and thoroughly enjoying herself. I thought you might enjoy it. This is the link:

If you can't find it look on YouTube under the username PringlePoirot. The movie is called "The Bliss of being Saluki". Enjoy!

Here's a vote for you and I hope you had a wonderful weekend. It's cold but was beautiful and sunny and I took both Pippin and Melian on a cart ride.

Come visit me, Shadowfax.

Happy Thanksgiving!
I hope you are having a wonderfully happy Thanksgiving today with all of your close family and friends around you. And, of course, lots of good food with which you're now completely stuffed. We have so much for which to be thankful.

I would love for Shadowfax to win hotd which is why I'm writing from this profile. This way it is easier for everyone to find him. Isn't he stunning?

Leaving a special Thanksgiving vote for you.

Pippin (11626) and gang

How's everything going with you? Pippin won hotd on Saturday and I'm just getting a chance to start writing back to everyone. Again, I'm really sorry about Pattie. Are you going to try again?

I had a really great ride on Prince yesterday. I rode with the English saddle again and I put the jump standards on their sides and wedged the poles on them. That was much more secure and he only refused the first time. After that he jumped every time and it was so much fun. They were only a foot high but this is a huge improvement.

Pippin's flymask came but it's too small and rubs on his eyeballs. So, I need to see if I can return it and get a larger size. He really needs it badly. A few nights ago I took him out with the cart and Melian (she's a saluki) came too. This was the second time Melian has been in the cart and the first time we've done it alone. They were both really good but I need to work out some commands. Everytime I told Melian to do something Pippin would try to do it. I had never really thought about how much attention he pays to what I say. He's really such a good boy.

Melian gave me a big scare yesterday. While I was riding Prince his owners were taking care of her and she escaped and ran off without them noticing until it was too late. She can run very fast and she didn't stop. She ran out the gate and down the highway and then through lots of fields. I tried calling her and then got in the car and started down the road slowly, and calling constantly. I couldn't see her anywhere and she was still running scared. I finally turned around because I figured she couldn't have gone as far as that and started back slowly.

Suddenly I saw her in the distance among the trees and deep grass. First I thought she was a deer but then realized that it was Melian. I immediately stopped and ran across the road to call her. Luckily there was a hole in the fence right there and I scooted under. When Melian heard my voice she was SO relieved. She came running super fast and cried the whole way. Then she jumped into my arms and kissed me over and over again. Prince's owners were so scared because they felt responsible. I think that they were more scared than I was.

Anyway, all's well that end's well and I didn't lose her. So many things could have happened. Cars and broken legs are what were foremost in my mind. Saluki puppy legs are very fragile with their growth plates.

Well, that's all from me. As usual I just blab on. Here's a vote for you. Have a great week.

Come visit me, Prince, Pippin (Remembering Melian) & Eddie.

I am so sorry that Pattie lost her foal. I know how much you were looking forward to that. I hope you can try again.
I took Pippin out with the cart on Sunday. It had been a couple of weeks. I had just been taking him for walks because I've been training Melian, my new puppy, to walk on a leash. So, this was her first time in the cart and at first she was nervous but then she loved it and even took the reins in her mouth.
Yesterday we went for a walk, my sister and her parrot and me and Pippin and Melian. Pippin and Melian were doing fine together and then suddenly out of nowhere this weimaraner attacked us. He was charging us and barking like crazy but his owner managed to catch him in time. Pippin's response was to rear and bolt. I hung onto him but he hit Melian with his feet and scared her to death. Not good for their first walk together. After Pippin's initial scare he then was so furious that he was trying to get away from me and attack the dog. He doesn't like strange dogs anyway and once chased one all the way to it's home. I gave Melian some treats right next to Pippin's nose so that she would have good associations with him right away. Pippin was jealous so he got a dog biscuit too. I don't think he really liked it (first time that's ever happened) but he ate it anyway. Melian is fine and wasn't injured. Thank goodness.
Today we went the same way and she was scared because she thought that the dog would be there again. In a way, I'm glad because that means she's not blaming it on Pippin. I want them to be friends.
Well, that's all from me. I hope you had a great 4th of July. Here's a vote for you. ttyl

How's everything going over there? Sorry, I haven't written in awhile again. I still haven't caught up.

Would you be so kind as to vote for Pippin in the Glamour Shot contest? The link is below. The other day I took him for a cart ride and we were showing off to a friend on a bike. Pippin was chasing him through the forest when suddenly he stopped and pulled over to the side. I couldn't figure out why and I told him, "Come on, Pippin. Let's keep going." So, he obeyed but then I saw that something was wrong because the cart was crooked to him and I realized that one of the traces had come loose. He was smart enough to stop and I have to admit, I was quite proud of him. And even though he was stopped he still tried to obey when I asked him to move on. What a good boy he is. I hooked the trace back up and on we went.

And today my sister and I rode Eddie and Prince. They were both really energetic and Prince doesn't seem to be tripping anymore. It had been raining but was clear when we arrived. However shortly after we started riding the rain returned and we were thoroughly soaked. Generally I don't like being out in the rain, Tiny would have considered that wimpish of me, but today it was so beautiful. In the adjacent field on one side of us was a show of rainbows and on the other it was bright and sunny. It was quite spectacular.

Well, that is all from me. Except, there is a big surprise coming. I am leaving tomorrow at 6am to get it. We won't be back until midnight at the earliest so I'll tell everyone about it on Friday. Leaving a vote here too.

P.S. Pippin's link in case you need it again.

Sorry this is cut and paste but I'm trying to reach as many horses as possible. I will write properly later.

I was wondering if you could do my friends on the Dog Channel a favour? They are running for dog of the month and they need lots more votes to win. Would you go over there and give them a vote today and tomorrow? Their number is 85816. Their names are Little Bit and Paco.

You can log in with your Horse Channel information. Then click on the dog of the day and change the last numbers to 85816.

Thank you so much. Leaving you with a vote and hoping you're having a great weekend.

Pattie is in foal!!! That is wonderful news. I'm excited and I bet you are too. Of course you are. I'm doing better now but still missing Tiny terribly. I don't think that will ever go away. She was so special.
I'm sorry that I haven't stopped by in awhile. I had to be offline for a few weeks and I sure have missed writing to everyone.
I rode Prince a couple of weeks ago without Eddie there to distract him. He was the best he's ever been and I so enjoyed our ride. He paid close attention to everything that I asked because he wasn't spending the whole time trying to get to Eddie or to look at him. He took the correct lead each time we cantered and I even got him to do shoulder in at the trot. Something we've been working on for awhile. And then we did a few low jumps and he behaved and didn't try to buck me off or bolt on the landing. I think that using Eddie's English saddle helps a lot too. He must really prefer it, I know that I do.
Eddie also had an adventure. He was the star attraction in the annual rodeo parade and sure knew how to strut his stuff. He looked so handsome in his regalia. I have a photo of him from last year's parade. He even made the front page of the local newspaper!
And I finally trimmed Pippin. We suddenly had 100 degree weather and he couldn't be in his buffalo disguise any longer. He looks so beautiful now. I like the cute cuddly look of winter but the summer look is so elegant. He's also mellowed out now that he's turned 4 and he is so good with the cart. I can get him to do just about anything and we will be working on fancier stuff later this summer if I have time, fingers crossed.
Well, that's all from me for now. I hope you had a wonderful Memorial Day and weekend. Leaving you with a vote.

Thank you so much for stopping by. It was good to hear from you again.
Thank you so much for the condolences on my loss of Tiny. I tried to write to you earlier but I didn't get too far before the tears were running so much that I couldn't concentrate. I still can't believe that Tiny is actually gone. I keep looking for her and glancing at where she usually is but she's not there and never will be again.
What bothers me the most is that I think we finally got the kidneys in a good place but they had wreaked so much damage to her body that she was having so many strokes and seizures. This last big stroke just shut down everything and she just faded away. It was so hard to watch but I'm glad that at least she was home. I would have given anything for a few more years. It's too late now.
I am thankful that she is free of pain now and is happy. Maybe one day I will be too. But that won't be soon. She will be in my heart forever.
And I also want to thank you for voting for Prince and for Pippin and Eddie too. It means a lot to me and something else to concentrate on. Sometimes I think I'm doing fine and then I realize that I have a tear running down my cheek that was trying to sneak by.
Well, thank you so much again for your friendship. I am honoured to be your friend. I hope you had a very happy Easter. Here's a vote for you.
P.S. I'm sorry that it didn't work out with Pattie yet. I sure hope she takes. The foal will be something else.

I was wondering if you'd do me a favour? Would you be so kind as to vote for Prince for horse of the month? We need as many votes as we can get this month in order for him to win. He's been on the horse channel for almost a year and a half and he's a very hard worker. He's a Belgian/Welsh pony cross and he's very handsome. I guess he got the best of both breeds. I'm training him and he's extremely smart but he does have a mind of his own. He learns fast but on his own terms. He knows how to rein and we're working on jumping and dressage. Just because he knows it though doesn't mean he'll do it. But that's one of the things I love about him. He sure has character.

Thank you in advance for stopping by and giving him your vote. I really appreciate it. And here's another vote for you. Enjoy your weekend.

Sorry for the delay again. I just get so busy that I don't have time to write and then the blogs start building up and I get more and more behind. Were you able to get some riding in? I sure hope so. Your weather is so much warmer than ours. That won't last though. Soon enough we'll be in the scorching heat. We have to enjoy the cooler spring weather while we can. 60 degree days are just perfect. So, do you know if Pattie took? I bet you're waiting anxiously. If the parents are anything to go by the foal is going to be magnificent.
That is so nice that you know the right people and have inside information. I bet it was hard to just look at those fillies. Did you end up buying one? It would be so hard to resist. I'm sorry that you can't keep Taj but it sounds as though he's going to the perfect home for him.
How is Roxy's training coming along. Is she still scared of the saddle?
Prince was actually really good last week. My sister couldn't come so I rode alone and he wasn't distracted by Eddie. That's his biggest problem. I got some nice collection and proper leads out of him. It was so nice. I even got a few jumps although he wasn't really into that on that day. And Pippin has been just wonderful. I learnt awhile ago that if he eats before I take him out he is so much better behaved. Well, I fed him and took him out with the cart on Sunday and he pulled two people the whole way. And he was on his best behaviour. I think he was happy to be out. And he's shedding like crazy. I curry combed him for ages and he basically looked just the same. I guess the only evidence I had of my hard work was that I looked just like a horse.
Well, good luck with all your little ones. Here's a vote for you.

I'm sorry that it's been so long since I wrote. I've been so busy that I've hardly taken Pippin out and I hadn't ridden in almost three weeks. I finally got to ride this morning and it felt wonderful to be back in the saddle again. Prince was all spunky and then he was bad and bolted. After that I worked him hard trotting in circles and getting him to canter on the correct lead. He did pretty well and I was able to tire him out enough so that he was more well-behaved. I got a couple of jumps out of him before they fell over. It was windy but such a beautiful sunny day. I hope to take Pippin out with the cart again soon. We're both needing to get out. And he's finally started to shed. I saw him lose two hairs yesterday. So, if the weather stays warm I'll clip him soon. I can't wait to see him all trim and pretty. The cute look can only go for so long. So, I went and checked out Pattie's mate. Wow, he's so beautiful. And his lines sure seem to come out well in his offspring. I sure hope it works out for you. Of course, I still think Eddie is quite the handsome fellow. But, he's a gelding. I saw our herd of percherons again today. They were all lined up in colour. Two greys, one black, one white, one black, one white, you get the picture. I wish I had actually got the picture. I really need to carry a camera. Tiny was really sick again but she's doing better now. I think (fingers crossed) that I've finally figured out a balance of her medications to keep her two diseases from setting each other off. I want lots more time with her. Well, here's a vote for you and Pattie.

Oh, I do hope that Pattie gets pregnant. What fun it would be to have a foal around. Are you breeding her with a Percheron? Near where we live there is a farm where they have a herd of Percherons that live free and breed at will. They have the cutest little foal right now. I'm sure there will be more come spring. I really don't think that the owner will notice if I nab one for myself. That's great that you got another Clydesdale. Someday you'll have to put a photo up of all your horses together. I've had a rough past month. My little dog has been so sick and almost died. She's 15 and has CRF. I don't know what I'll do without her. She's doing a lot better now though. I think Pippin got a little jealous of all the attention I was giving her. I haven't had the time to take him out more than once a week. At least he has his field to run and gallop in, which he does. Well, it was good to hear from you. I hope you have a great weekend. Here's a vote for you.

It was good to hear from you. Guess what? I finally got to see Prince Caspian. Wow, that was a great movie. I wasn't disappointed even though they did change a few things from the book. But they always do that so what should I expect? The friesian was magnificent. In fact, those horses were all doing amazing things and were extremely well-trained. I was very impressed and I want to watch it again. I have never driven a horse by being perched above them. Eddie's cart is low so the main view is his big butt. Quite a handsome butt though. (I hope no one reports this comment). And, of course, I prefer driving Pippin. He is doing really well with his driving. It was interesting to compare him to the two big horses. Since I know him so well and we're together a lot, he listens to every sounds I make. He was so cute the other day. We had new gravel put on our driveway and it's hard for him to pull the cart through it. Well, I was in the cart and he had to go up a small bump and it was harder than he thought so he stopped. I coaxed him forward, (the command is, "YOU can do it!) and he gave this little forward jump and put all his might into it and up the cart went. I always find it so sweet when he puts that extra effort into it. It makes me want to kiss him. And, of course, I do. Horse noses are so soft. Well, enough of my little baby boy. Julie's mini meeting your big ones sounds so much fun. You should have had a video camera. I got to take Prince out for a cart ride on Tuesday. I've never driven him before. It was a lot of fun and he's pretty good though he does get a little bossy around Eddie. Prince is the head horse even though he's much smaller. My sister was driving Eddie. Eddie is more obedient and likes to follow Prince. It was great to be able to interact with them even though I couldn't ride. My knee is still sore but I'm hoping to be able to ride next week. Prince was a bucking bronco a couple of weeks ago and I was bareback. I managed to hold on for about 4-5 seconds but then I hit the ground. I had a concussion for a few days with vomiting and a major migraine but it's better now. But I also sprained my knee and that is gradually healing. Except for hitting my head, I actually got more injuries from staying on than from falling including the sprained knee. Being hit by a broad draught back is quite painful. I should have bailed right when he started but there's an instinct to hang on. Oh well, I'll know better next time. Maybe. Well, here's a vote for you. Enjoy your weekend.

It was really great to hear from you again. I know what it's like to be busy. I try to keep up with my blogs but then something happens and I start getting behind and it begins a vicious cycle. I'm sorry that Pattie is still having trouble. It sounds as though she wants to be out and free. I hope you can figure out something that works. As for Pippin's molar, I don't think he really noticed. I had a two year old horse before and I never noticed teeth falling out everywhere. Maybe it's because he likes to bite on everything. The other day I got to drive Eddie for the first time. I've only ever ridden him before and I've never driven any horse except for Pippin. Eddie is a lot bigger and so much more powerful. It was quite an experience. His owner left me to take care of Prince and Eddie while he was doing something else. My sister had ridden Prince and I untacked him and groomed him and then I attempted Eddie. I got the cart off alright but I wasn't sure about the harness and I left most of it attached to itself and then I pulled the large collar over Eddie head but I couldn't get the rest of the harness over his head. So when his owner came out I was standing there with half the harness in my hands and the other half on top of Eddie's head. It's a good thing Eddie is so patient. His owner had told me to just leave Eddie to him but I thought I'd give it a try. I thought he'd be mad at me for going ahead but he just laughed and said that he'd teach me how to do it next time. So, that's the latest news from me. Here's a vote for you. ttys

Come visit me, Prince, Pippin (Remembering Melian) & Eddie.

No, I didn't get to ride today but tomorrow I'll ride Prince again unless something unforeseen stops me. I did get to ride him last Monday and we put the jumps up to two feet again. He did so well and went right over them. We're both a little better at it now. I'm getting the hang of it again after not doing it for so long. I just love jumping. It's like flying. I'm going to have to look into getting a smaller girth for Eddie's saddle so that I can use it for jumping on Prince. The Western saddle doesn't work very well. I took Pippin out for a drive on Sunday evening. After three days of rain his coat was all fluffy and clean. I love his winter coat. He's so huggable this time of year. Not that he particularly appreciates being hugged but that's what he gets for being so small and cute. Anyway, he did a wonderful job as usual and he's getting better at backing up. I took him out for a run with the cart yesterday evening. I was pretty cold but he wasn't. We were gone for an hour and a half and he trotted or cantered the whole way. Pretty good for a little mini. It was really windy and cold so I think he was pretty riled up by it. That just makes it more fun. He decided to spook at a few windy things but not too bad. Anyway, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and then I took him for a bike ride this afternoon and he really ran and worked up a sweat. Oh, and one of his molars flew out and landed on the road. I guess he's still teething. That's so great that Aurora did so well at her keuring. I bet you're really proud of her. What do people do who walk away with nothing? Do they get to try again? They had a great article in HI not long ago in which Friesians were featured. You probably saw that though. I'm glad that Taj is doing so well and that he and Shane are working together. Sounds perfect. And that's great that Pattie's foot is better too. I always dread something happening to Pippin but so far he's been the picture of health. I hope I haven't jinxed that. As for Pattie's banging and hurting her legs, I've never experienced that but one thing that came to mind is that horses like noise and especially noisy feedback to their antics. So, it might help to put some type of thick rubber on her walls. That would deaden the sound and would not be so injurious. Just my two cents. Well, I hope you're enjoying your weekend and here's a vote. ttyl

Come visit me, Prince, Pippin (Remembering Melian) & Eddie.

Hey, it was great to hear from you. No need to apologize. I know what it's like not to have time to write on here. So, how did Aurora do? I bet she did wonderfully. So, how do you like the new Taj? I bet he's like another horse. Does your son approve? We've had rain which is so nice. We haven't had any since March. We sure hope that this will finally put out the fires which have been burning since June. I rode Prince on Monday and I took him exploring. It was so much fun and even though he was a little nervous I think he liked it too. He did bolt once though because there was a gas tanker idling and he wanted to get away from it fast. Fortunately, he calmed down once we got away. At least he didn't try his bucking bronco routine again. I don't want to crack another helmet. Well, here's a vote for you and I hope you're having a great weekend. ttyl
