How we found/bought Spangle:
We needed a horse to keep Rose company, but we also wanted a horse for my mom to ride. I found Spangle on Craigslist. We went to look at him. He was the perfect size for my mom and was calm. My mom also liked his personality. A week after going to look at him we brought our trailer to pick him up… More tomorrow!

I lunged the horses yesterday. Spangle did great! I expected him to be a little grumpy, but he wasn't! He was good. Rose was her normal frisky self:)

I'm back! My family took a road trip to visit family. We also took 2 "vacation" days. It was fun. The horses are good.

Thank for all the support for Spangle's HOTM run, even though I haven't been on. I will start his story tomorrow.

Thank you for Spangle's HOTD yesterday! It was fun coming home and seeing him the spotlight:)

HI!!!!
Thank-you SOOOOOO much for making Outlaw HOTD!!!!! It means SO much to me to hear all of the thoughtful comment; especially the ones about not giving up hope of owning him one day, too <3 Those touch me deeply!!!! Because I don't have a lot of time and there are so many people to thank, forgive me for not personalizing the comments!! But here's a vote for all of you to thank-you for such an amazing day!! Sadly tho, because I've been sick this past week with Flu B, I haven't been out to the barn on forever and can't go see Outlaw (or any of the horses!!) and give him some extra treats and love...but as soon as I am better I will defiantly be telling him about his special day and about all of the wonderful people who love him!!

Again...Thank-you SO much for giving Outlaw HOTD!!!

Love,
Bella and her Herd <3

HI
Hello everyone.
First off I would like to say thank you so very much for TJ's 3rd HOTD!!! He would be so excited to hear of his win. :)

I would also like to apologize for not replying sooner, but I was out of town for a little over two weeks with very limited internet access.

During my 2 week vacation I spent most of my time at my Aunts, who lives out in the country. It was a very nice change from living in the city.
While there I took my little cousin to the water park as much as possible and then went to LEGOLAND again with my friend, his sons, and my cousin. We had a blast, and hopefully we'll go back again sometime soon as we still did not get to do all of the rides.

After the two weeks I again went off with my friend, he runs in races and was running in the Tour De Pain, a two day, three race series. He's now No.2 in his age division and something like No.3 overall in FL. He did really well considering he was running injured and could have easily just said no to running, but he refused to give in and did it anyways.

I would also like to thank everyone who has sent me well wishes for my Uncle who was sick with Pancreatic cancer. He unfortunately passed away on August 8th at 8am, the day after I came home and the day before my mom's birthday. His funeral will be this Thursday and we are having his memorial dinner at my place.

I hope everyone is doing well and having a very horsey summer. Hugs and love to everyone.

Come visit me, TJ (And friends).

How are you doing? Wow, it's been a long, long time since I blogged properly on here! This has been the craziest summer ever. I'm always busy and somewhat insane but I think I've taken both to a new level because I've been insanely busy. :)

Without boring you with too many details I'll just say that I've had to take several road trips for work and the past 3 weeks I've been literally working day and night to meet a deadline. But, it's good to keep busy, right? I just miss my nighttime blogging.

Thank you so much for stopping by for Prince's win for hotd. I was gone when Prince won and in between trips when Eddie won. But it sure was nice to read all the congrats and to see them in the spotlight again.

Pippin is doing is great as are the big boys. I see them once a week to drive and I really like driving a lot. I still wish I could ride but I'm happy that not only do I get to spend time with horses but I get to drive them.

I take Pippin out as much as I can. Not every day like we're used to because I'm so busy but at least several times a week, even if it's just a walk.

Just the other evening I took him out for a cart ride with Melian. He hadn't been out for about a week and was feeling the need to stretch his little legs.

We were going at a nice trot for a mile or so. Once he warmed up properly he wanted to go faster so I set him at a fast canter. That got Melian interested in a race. They love racing each other!

So, she started teasing him by zigzagging back and forth under his nose and he chased her trying to nip at her bony butt.

Suddenly she did a rollback and accidentally rolled back onto her butt. She was SO mad. I think she felt embarrassed and she let out a huge growl. It was plain that she blamed Pippin and she let him know.

That got him going and he took off at an earth shattering gallop. It was the fastest I have ever seen him pull a cart. It felt like it was going to explode into a million tiny parts. Wow, that was fun! He ran like that for over a mile. What a rush!

That had me smiling and he got a nice bounce to his step. I'm sure you agree that there's nothing like a good ride or drive to bring things back into perspective.

Thanks for sticking by me even though I've not been around. I'm getting caught up on my blogs today (I hope) but I'm not sure how often I can blog. Still lots of work to do.

Here's a vote for you and I hope you're having a nice horsey weekend.

PS Thanks to all who voted for Pippin the Amazing Grazers contest. He won first place in the VHS!

PPS I thought that this was cute enough to mention. The other night we were watching Olympic showjumping and Melian saw the horses on the screen. She loves running with the horses and she growled and tried to catch one as he went over the jump. :)

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

How are you doing? Is it hot there? It's been pretty warm here. Close to 100 degrees for a few days. And then suddenly down to 40 a couple of nights ago. And now back in the 90s. Crazy mountain weather!

Last month I spent so much time blogging for Shadowfax and the month before that I was blogging for Pixie Dust, that I haven't had much time to blog for Pippin! And he's my very own. Oh well, what he doesn't know…

He is looking SO handsome right now. I finally came to a decision to give him a flax seed oil supplement. His coat is glossy and he looks very healthy. I don't give him any type of grain so I think it's a good idea to add the oil. It's only a very tiny bit but it gives him the omega fatty acids that he wouldn't otherwise be getting. Most grain fed horses would get that automatically.

Talking of Shadowfax, I played around with Photoshop last night and made some photo edits of Pippin and Shadowfax together. I think they turned out pretty cool. I also made one of Pippin running in the surf.

I've been wanting to do that for some time. I want to make some of Eddie too. He's just so handsome it would be worth the trouble. I finally posted a photo of his first place win the rodeo parade. That is a HUGE event in our county. Come and check it out!

Well, as usual, it's getting late here. I hope you're all doing fine. I will try to write more than c/p messages but in the meantime I wanted to make the rounds and visit my friends.

Leaving a vote for you.

Thanks, again, for Sadie's Wednesday HOTD. And thanks for the congratulations. You're all the best. I let Sadie and Star out of the corral for exercise and gave them carrots. Austin went outside with a bag of nacho cheese Doritos, one of Sadie's favorite treats. He had to share. She insisted. Love and a HAPPY THANKSGIVING vote.

..·:*¨¨*:·. *VOTE PIPPIN HOTM*.·:*¨¨*:·. .
Hi, my name is Pippin and I am running for horse of the month in January. I am a cute but feisty miniature stallion and at 31" tall and 200lbs, I can literally pull my own weight! I love going out with my humans and my favourite activities (after eating, of course!) are driving and jumping. But… really I'm game for anything asked of me. Nothing much scares me and I LOVE new and exciting adventures.

Do I have any faults? If you ask me, of course not! I'm perfect! If you ask mama? Well, she doesn't like me nipping her (oh, but it's so tempting!) and she wishes I were better with water. I'm not too keen on baths or puddles.

Next month I will have been on the Horse Channel for 4 years and I'm the oldest active member. I would greatly appreciate your daily votes and support for me all next month. I plan to educate all my fans on the wonders of minis and I hope to highlight one of my movies each day.

Thank you in advance and I hope to see you all next month so that I can reach my vote goal of 10,000 votes! Wishing you all the best for the new year and leaving a vote!

Show went great - could have been better. We got one first, 3 seconds, 1 third, and 2 fifths. We also got champion which was really good. We did not do the mini prix. I tried the division the day before and she hit some rails and it wasn't worth paying 125 dollars to enter it if she was hitting rails. So we decided to wait till next time. We will work work work to get really good. It was sooooo cold on sat and it started to rain and sleet on us - it was that cold sunday was better the sun was out again.

We are going to another show on Nov 20. Looking forward to it. Hope everyone had a great weekend. Left a vote

So I want to thank everyone!!!! It was such a great surprise to find that Rocky was HOTD!!!! Now both of my boys have won HOTD 2 times!!!! That is great, so now we will have to try and win hotm soon. I am thinking maybe january or february. Yesterday I rode buddy and rocky. Rode buddy english first and did some jumping. He was amazing and did everything perfect and he is getting pretty good with his flying lead changes! I am so proud of him for that. Then I was done with him and I rode rocky english. That horse is sooooo lazy. I can't seem to get any energy out of him unless i get him to gallop. One time for fun I was in the field and i met my mom on her way home from work. So we decided to see how fast rocky man could go. Keep in mind this horse is a complete pleasure horse and only ever really goes slow. Well apparently he can go 30 mph. It was lots of fun and extremely surprising! so now to wake him up i do a little gallop on him but eventually he goes back to being the laziest boy ever. well i am trying to teach him how to jump! well yesterday i somehow managed to get him to jump 2 feet. It took so much work though! he is starting to get it extremely slowly though. Then i did some equitation work. I worked on stopping, going from the canter to the trot and the trot to the canter. I did some work on stop to canter. Then i did some pivots on the forehand. He is starting to get better. He just needs to be more consistent but i am happy with him as he is only 4. Then i put him away and got buddy out again. I did some games work. Buddy has decided he likes games and jumping better than pleasure stuff but he still will do showmanship. Buddy really like keyhole. At Clay County fair he managed to get reserve champion out of almost 20 if not over 20 people. And i was going against real gamers. So i ended up getting a time of 8. something seconds. It was so great he was amazing for me! It was such a surprise hearing the announcer say and we have a new leader. I did some barrel practice yesterday. Buddy doens't like the first turn but he gets the last turn perfect and his second turn is getting pretty good. we just need to get more speed and work on the first barrel. He is such a good boy lately! I think that is all for now. I'm terribly sorry about how long this is! Hoping to ride tonight! Hope everyone has a great monday!

Oh, OK! Sundance is a BEAUTIFUL stallion! I'd like to have Lightning be a stallion, but I plan to ride him so it's best if we have him gelded. I'd really like to breed him with another horse (maybe even Fancy if we still have her) and I think they'd make a beautiful, smart, athletic baby. My dad will probably shoot that option down in a second! :*( I'd love that though... Here's a vote for your beautiful stallion!
