My Horse Profile

Quarter Horse from Madison, AL

Noel

About Me

Active within 2262 Days

I am from Madison, AL and I've been a Club Horse member for 6 years, 11 months and 1 day

Nicknames: Shorty, Booger, Silly, Mr. High Class, His Majesty, Mistah Quarab

Age: 15 years old

Gender: Gelding

Breed: Quarter Horse

Height: Approx. 15.2 HH

Color: Chesnut with three socks and a blaze (By the way, he's really a Quarter Horse/Arabian cross).

Type of Riding: Western, Bareback

My Horse's Achievements: Noel went from being completely untrained for the first nine years of his life to being successfully saddle-broken eight months later. That's not to say I'm not still in the training process, but he's a great horse and according to my trainer, we're a perfect match :]

My Horse's Favorite Treat: Apple wafers and carrots.

My Horse's Favorite Things To Do: Run, eat, play around, goof off, be groomed, show off!!

Pet Peeves: Being tied in the barn for too long, making training or riding "work, not play."

My Horse's motto: "The best thing about grass burn is that it's only grass burn. Now get back on that horse." ~Russ D, my trainer.

How We Met

Well, for the first nine years of his life, Noel lived with his mother and half sister. His father, an Arabian/America- n Appaloosa cross, was sold, but when the previous owner's sons went off to college and her husband died, she couldn't part with her remaining three. Unfortunately, the mother (called Horse) was at the point in life with so many health issues that she could only be a pasture pet. Dotty, Noel's half sister, was massively overweight and extremely testy. She was beautiful, but she would require a LOT of training. According to my trainer, Russ, Noel had "that look in his eye" that proved he would make a good riding horse with a little effort and a lot of time. Russ talked with his owner, who agreed that her horses needed a good home. She had back problems and couldn't take care of them, but she wanted to be sure that someone who would take care of them inherited them. Russ approached me with the prospect of owning Noel (as I had always wanted a horse of my own) and I eagerly agreed. He set up a home for Dotty to be a show-horse--she would easily be in good shape if she lost weight and was worked with and properly trained. Horse (their mother) moved down the road to live with her younger sister (who is also a pasture pet).

That's how I ended up with Noel, the Christmas-Born Wonder Horse.

Your horse is GORGIOUS! Come and see Guusje, a fantastic, beautiful Fjord stallion who excells at dressage! 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!

Noel's Much Better Now :]
We gave him a bath today, and he was positively ecstatic :] He apparently loves the hose and jets of water now, because he was like a kid in a sprinkler, hahaha!

I love this horse!

Better Today
Noel is better today. He shows no signs of a repeat performance, and he drank water and ate normally. We let him back out of the round pen today, but we'll probably keep him in the pen at night to make sure nothing happens.

We think he might have been dehydrated just because he was too "busy" and having too much fun to drink. He has enough water, with the two troughs and the pond in the pasture he's in, but sometimes horses are horses, you know?

In any case, he seems as happy as ever :]

Come visit me, Noel.

Noel Collapsed Today
We don't know why. There was no prior reasoning for it, it was spontaneous. I always check him over completely and ground work him before I ride, and I found nothing wrong.

And then, while I was riding, he just went down.

We think he might have been dehydrated, although he has a large supply of water everywhere he's containing. There's a pond and two water troughs in the pasture, and a water bucket in his stall, but we don't know if he's been actually drinking it.

We've got the vet out to come check on him tomorrow. Hope all is well--keep him in your thoughts, please! :]

Thanks,
Sarah and Noel

Trot Trot Trot
Noel was trotted under saddle for the first time the other day and did splendidly in responding to energy cues rather than reins and leg cues. I'm very pleased :]

Smart horses deserve treats! And so he got one :] (Actually, it was an apple...so it was a BIG treat). Noel loves apples :]

noels beauty
Noel is very handsome and looks like ya'll are having fun. I used to be blessed with the presence of a quarab like him and he was wonderful. He was named Sundae because he was so sweet.

Haha, Throw-A-Buck Contest
So Noel decided that after about twenty minutes of work in the arena (his first time in there), he wanted to re-join the herd. He started running around like a maniac and bucking. Because we were working on join up, he was off the lead line.

That was interesting :] After I got him to stand still and listen up for a bit, I decided to end on a good note and let him go. I've never seen him run that fast (since he's entirely to lazy for his own good), but it makes me and my trainer think he'd make a great barrel racer if we (meaning HE) put forth some energy and I stopped being such a scaredy cat :]

I love Noel <3

Is my real man.

Boys are ridiculous, and horses are better.

At this point and time, anyway. I love how Noel gets jealous and defensive if ANY of my guy friends come with me to see him. I love that horse :]

Noel's Aversion To Things With Wheels
Is soon to end :] He's decided the trailer is no longer quite so evil, and I'm hoping to maybe to train him as a part-time pony-cart horse. I know he'd love it, because although he likes kids, he likes them more when they aren't on his back! Haha, silly horse.

Also, the weather's lookin' up, and so is my time spent at the barn!

Come visit me, Noel.

Hi! I am trying to get my horse, Tolkien, to be horse of the day! He is an amazing 15.0 paint, and currently he is on stall rest for a stress fracture of the pelvis. When he isn't injured, he is out jumping 3'6 jumps and flying through cross country courses. He won regionals for dressage at level 2 and goes western. He is the sweetess horse in the whole wide world! Please vote for him.. also there are for pix of him at the bottom of his page! PLEASE!!!!

Come visit me, Keeper, Tolkien, Jay & Vinnie.

Was grand :] Noel and I had fun. I braided his hair and called him "Pocahontas". I don't know why XD I think it was the little girl I was babysitting;; she wanted to braid his hair first.
But he got a full grooming and is looking very spiffy.

Thanks for the votes, all you guys!!
