How We Met

I was looking for a horse for my mom because her current horse (at the time) was a mean mare and we couldn't trust the mare with my little brothers. So I regularly checked out the online classifieds for the Twin Cities' paper and I found his ad, we went to see him twice, we rode him and he just fit perfectly into what we needed and wanted and a safe horse for my little brothers to be around =) well now I have to take care of 3 horses on my own. It's hard and I have never had the time to ride all 3 of them, especially Rio here cuz he's my mom's horse (being a mom, she never has time to ride, you know how it goes) and so we have decided that since he is the youngest, has the most potential (and boy, does this horse have potential, but I'll talk about that later), and is the best horse on the ground. He has energy but yet always knows when to use it, he stops playing with the other horses immediately when I walk into the pasture, now that i think about it, he's never, ever, even threatened slightly that he was going to kick or bite, he's professionally trained (that's why he has so much potential) he could go western pleasure, horsemanship, reining, the pro trainer 'heeled' calves before we got him so he ropes, man, I see him out in that pasture, never being ridden, and it hurts because he has so much potential.
O.K. enough for now.

yeah i love his name to! That name is sort of a 'family name' his grandsire was Wishum Good Luck,his sire was Wishum All the Way and now theres Wishum Well. oh ok and i just have to tell someone this its so funny and so cute! ok so this weekend (well today) i went to a show,and there was this little girl who started talking to me about Edisto. she was on her pony,and getting ready to go in the ring,and she just looks at me and says "i thought of my ponies name myself" and she doesnt tell me his name,and just rides into the ring. and about 30 secs. later the announcer says "first hunter round for today,Marissa Riot,and Lightning Brown Pony of Wonder!" yeah Lightning Brown Pony of Wonder was the ponies name!and we're at a show where horses names are FureFliegh and Royal Coachmen!

Come visit me, Million Dollar Edisto, Wishum Well *we miss you so much baby* & Mariah Anchez.

Blah and gloomy out today- haven't ridden since Monday! Hi, everyone! Could you help us with a very special HOTD today? Spot Ya Sum Luck(Dennis), who was HOTD last Thursday, had to be humanely euthanized last Friday because of complications after his surgery. We thought it would be a nice way to remember him by electing his dam, Shezadoozie, HOTD. Doozie is a 10 year old black overo American Paint horse. She's a very versatile horse, showing in English and Western Pleasure,Trail class, Halter, Showmanship, Jumping,and Cattle Sorting. Doozie's a laid back horse who loves to just laze around the pasture. Another thing she loves to do is swim. Please vote for Doozie today,in memory of Dennis. Her blog # is 80674. Just erase your own numbers at the end of the web address at the top of your page, and type in Doozie's. Thanks everyone! Here's a vote and virtual treats!%>%>%>O'O'O' >O<>- O<>O<<%<%<%-Gypsy and Ann-Stormy and Ann

Hopefully,you'll be able to visit more often!
Hi, everyone! Hope your day is going great!Today, I would like you meet Fa Cymbal Lahna A.K.A. Lahna. Lahna is an 18 year old Arabian mare.Like most Arabians, she was quite a versatile horse, She did english, western and jumping! Her sire was actually a Western Champion. Lahna was a lesson horse, but last fall, when a horse named Aoife arrived at the barn, she was moved to a different one. So to cheer one of the kids who took lessons on Lahna up, could you vote for her to help her get hotd? Lahnas blog # is 69422. Just replace your blog # with Lahna's blog #. It would be greatly aprecciated! Well, g2g, left a vote and a delicious bag of virtual treats (yummy) <% <% O' >O< 'O %> %> Thanks again, Stormy and Annie ~ Gypsy and Ann

Meano got to do something for the new year that many of us don't get to do. She got to go to a wonderful new home today that has many other horses that are in her class. She is now part of a quarter horse ranch that raises and shows halter horses. She will be missed dearly (especially by me, I haven't been able to stop crying since she left) but I know she is in good hands and she will finally be able to do what she was bred for: show. She seemed to show an instant bond with her new owner, and that is something that you cannot replace. I'll leave her website on for a few more weeks or so, so that everyone can say goodbye....The new owner promised to keep me updated and I also have her website address, so if anyone is curious I can keep them up to date as I find out. Here's one last vote from Meano....Thanks for being a good friend to her!

Come visit me, ♥ ~Prissy~ ♥.

What a cute horse! Have a vote! Also, if you are new on here, I'm going to warn you that there are a lot of fake or cyber-stolen horses on here. People just take pictures off of the internet or off of someones website, make a profile for it, and call it their own horse. It is really wrong and we all need to work together to try and stop them. Just keep your eyes open and DON'T VOTE FOR FAKES! ~Thank You~ Hal & His Gal
