My Horse Profile

Arabian from The Woodlands, TX

Butterscotch- computer troubles!

About Me

Active within 1972 Days

I am from The Woodlands, TX and I've been a Club Horse member for 6 years, 6 months and 13 days

Nicknames: Butters, Sweety, Miss Priss

Age: 24 years old

Gender: Mare

Breed: Arabian

Height: Around 13HH

Color: She is a line back dun, sort of a light sorrel or dark palimino color. She has a star on her forhead, a super long blonde mane, and stockings!

Type of Riding: Western pleasure and bareback. We also "barrel race" around buckets for fun! (We don't show!)

My Horse's Achievements: Well, when I was 8, I was riding a 37-year-old gelding on a trail ride, and he scared me very badly, scraping me against trees until I finally started crying and had to get off of him. Well I got on Butterscotch, the trainer told me he wanted me to ride her through the trees to see how well I could control her! And to top that off, she hadn't been ridden in over a year! Ahh! But, not having a choice, I got on (BY THE WAY, ALL THIS HAPPENED WHEN I WAS TRYING HER OUT FOR THE FIRST TIME) and began my ride. Immediately, I felt safe and secure riding her. She went exactly where I asked her to, no questions asked. I even got her to hop over a log instead of walking around it (something Dreamer wouldn't do!).

My Horse's Favorite Treat: Apples and carrots... and for some reason dog food. Seriously. She'll sneak in the garage when you aren't looking and get into dog food! So strange!

My Horse's Favorite Things To Do: She loves standing by the hay-bales and eating, rolling in the mud, and she drinks a lot...! We have a special bond, and she loves when I pet her- we practice Horse Logic and she's super good at it!... she'll follow me all around the pen! DID I MENTION SHE LOVES EATING???!

Pet Peeves: Butterscotch is virtually bomb proof, but she doesn't like cameras or EquiSpot. Also, she has recently started spooking when we walk through gates, though I'm not sure why. And she doesn't like her ears rubbed!

My Horse's motto: "If it looks edible, eat it!"

How We Met

Well, the horse trainer/ farrier that does Dreamer's feet was talking with my grandma, and he mentioned a little mare he had that he was trying to sell. He said that his 12-year-old grand-daughter had ridden her for a couple years, and that she wanted something with a lot more "go." My grandma started asking him questions, and she found out that Butterscotch was a Arabian/Shetlan- d cross (mostly Arabian, we've decided, so that's why I changed her breed from Shetland to mostly Arabian). I had been wanting a pony, in addition to Dreamer, so my grandma set up a time for us to go meet Butterscotch. When we arrived, we were greeted at the gate by Mr. Loy and 19 horses! He proudly told us that Butterscotch, an excellent broodmare, had given him 8 of those horses from his Arabian stud. I was impressed! He led us over to Butterscotch's seperate pen, where she was eating away. She seemed completely unaware of the three dogs walking all around her, and she didn't even put an ear back when one of them walked underneath her! Wow! Already impressed, I began asking him questions about the little mare. After a test ride, I knew that that girl was mine! She has now arrived at our house (March 4th, 2008) and is doing great! I already love her so much! My baby cousin learned to ride on her, and she's taught me a think or too! She's a great family horse, and she's never met anyone she didn't like (except my step-dad, she has good taste in personality)! All I can say is that God blessed me with her: without her, it would have been too hard to make it through all the rough times. ♥ ♦ ♥ UPDATE: we still haven't got Butterscotch up here in The Woodlands with us- as of right now, she's still staying with my grandparents in Lindale. For some reason, she's gone lame in her back right leg, but it isn't causing her pain at all. I'm keeping my rides short and sweet for her sake, but I go see her every other weekend. She's still my #1 gal! I miss her to death, but hopefully she'll be with us soon! My neighbor is a trainer at a new barn opening here and she said she'll pay Butter's board if I let her use her for lessons, but I am not sure if her leg will hold up. Please keep your fingers crossed for us! Thank y'all for treating us so kindly! ♥ ♦ ♥.

Here is a vote. I am sorry that I haven't been on in such a long time. I have been busier than I expected. My barn is almost full, which is great, but more work for me. I have been showing Scarlett. She is doing very well. Doozie is doing lessons right now. I haven't been on her in a while. She is doing great with all the kids. I am also putting on a series of horse shows that start this sat (6/27). I am swamped trying to pull it all together and not forget anything. How are things going?

Everyone! Sad news! Huckleberry is gone- my grandma gave him back to his original owner, and I just found out this week; I apologize for just now telling everyone, but I've major computer troubles and our computer has been in "the shop" several different times, so... I'm sad to see him go, but he's going to have a ball with her and I'll always love him to death! Anyways- I will be back soon, but I have an insane weekend ahead of me, and not enough time to reply to all these comments, so I apologize! We have acquired 4 foster kittens all under 8 weeks old that are keeping me super busy, and school is crazy! I hope everyone is doing well!

Hey, thanks for the comment on Pippin's last movie. I'm glad you like him and it's my aim to make everyone want a mini. Who wouldn't? 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. That's great that you get to spend time with Butters and Huck all week. 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 Butters.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

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

Hey!!
Fortunately, the vet thinks Socks ringbone can be managed & that I can still jump him!! He will likely have to be injected twice a year & a slight shoeing change & he should be fine!! I just have to take it one day at a time!! I'm glad you're having so much fun with Huck & Butters!! Here's some votes!ttyl,:)

Hey!!
Well, we finally know whats wrong with Socks!! He has ringbone in his left front & slight navicular in both fronts ~ both due to old age! He was injected 3 times which should fix the problem for a while! If all goes well, he'll only have to be injected twice a year! I'm glad you're going to get some time with Huck & Butters!! I'm sorry you've been sick though! I hope you're feeling better! Here's some votes!!ttyl,:)

Well, Socks is lame again!!:( We're probably heading to the vet, but it is most likely his age is catching up with him!! Its so depressing though!! I'm glad your mom is doing better & I hope you haven't been sick!! I'm glad Butters is doing better ~ maybe she's just arthritic - thats what we think is wrong with little Sockies!!

Hey, I was just finishing up with my blogs and added more pics of Dottie, I also decide to take a quick look through your new pics (LOVE them) amd read the 'how you met' section, you are in the Woodlands, Tx??? That is like 20-30 minutes from my place! Maybe you can come over sometime? We have a great place to ride with some trails. And I have two horse that can be riden if Butters can't come, when she is able to come, after leg heals, I'll pray for a speedy recovery and also my riding instructor in the leader of our 'very horsey themed' 4-H club, if you are intrested?
