How We Met

I was looking for a horse about 3 years ago (3 years in May) and a friend of ours was selling Halle as soon as Halle's foal was born and had been weaned. So, I bought the horse (actually my dad bought her for me) and the person we bought Halle from agreed to let me keep her out at our her and her husband's place for a boarding fee. So, every body is happy...Halle's at her home, the people we got her from can still see their horse and I have a horse of my own and a place to keep her. Plus, she gets pampered and loved by many people...I know I sure love her a lot! ♥

I recently learned that Halle's great great grandsire on her dam's side was War Admiral. And her grandsire on her sire's side was Impressive (luckily Halle's HYPP N/N!)

Halle has sold as of today (July 12, 2009). I will soon be posting a new blog for my new horse Pebbles. I owned Halle from the summer of 2006 to the summer of 2009, and this has been a really hard decision for me, but I realize the right one. Halle has gone to a place where she will have to young kids giving her attention, and it is her perfect new home. Halle has been a perfect horse for me, and she deserves nothing less. If Pebbles is half as good as Halle, she will be a pretty good horse. Thank you for all the votes, and I would really appreciate it if you would help me get Halle HOTM.
Halle is now deceased, but she led a good, full life and was a wonderful horse for many people.

Here's your Saturday vote from Fancy & Trigger ♥
Fancy is in the stall, while Trigger wanders around peacefully. It was warm this morning but it cooled down quickly with a few drops of rain. Knowing Spring is certain to be here in a few days, I have felt excitement for upcoming horsey events. I hope Fancy’s booboo heals up soon. I know she is ready to get out of that stall and kick her heels up! I am ready to see her kick her heels up too!

Matthew 2:16-18
16 Then Herod, when he saw that he was deceived by the wise men, was exceedingly angry; and he sent forth and put to death all the male children who were in Bethlehem and in all its districts, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had determined from the wise men.
17 Then was fulfilled what was spoken by Jeremiah the prophet, saying:
18 "A voice was heard in Ramah,
Lamentation, weeping, and great mourning,
Rachel weeping for her children,
Refusing to be comforted,
Because they are no more."

Well, I got to ride Misty quite a bit yesterday. I dont think I will be doing any riding today though because it looks like it is going to be a cruddy day. I have'nt been doing a whole lot with Sierra the last few days so I am hoping to get some work done with her today. It has been pretty warm around here lately, but I think there is snow predicted for tommorow.

No riding Thursday. It was a rainy afternoon. I did get to enjoy watching Austin chase Sadie as she chased Scruffy with him barking for Sadie to keep chasing him. Sadie had that tail up in the air. So funny. Even though I miss Star calling out to me, I've found peace with her passing. She's no longer sick and in pain. Love to you all. Voted.

Thank you each for your loving thoughts and amazing support. I love each and everyone of you. I truly do. You've become a special part of my life. I'm so blessed.....Sadie doing okay. She yells at me every time she sees me. She even yelled at me as I went out to the car to go to work Friday afternoon. She's never done that before. I bought her a new fly mask after work. She's notorious for ripping them to shreds. I went out to the corral with it and some carrots, too. I fed her the carrots first. I told her she didn't have to share them anymore. She was so bad about sharing, I'd have to back her up to give Star her carrots. Sadie was a pig. A carrot addict. As soon as I told her there was no one to share with now, Scruffy came up wanting some, too. That silly dog loves carrots. He use to bury them in the poo in the corral, then decided he liked them. When I buy carrots, I buy for him, too. Love to all of you. hugs and a vote.

Also known as "Scotland's Little Giant", the Shetland pony is the oldest of known breeds. Experts agree this breed to originate from Scotland (Shetland Islands) and are believed to trace back to the origins of other small ponies found in other countries like Ireland and Wales.
Because of the climate and rough conditions of the islands, these small ponies adapted to survive bitter cold weather, rocky and steep hills and poor grazing lands. This is believed why the Shetland has a thick neck, short ears, heavy mane and strong hooves.
The demand for this small pony did not have a great demand until 1847 when The Mines Act was enacted prohibiting children to work in coal mines. Children had been used to pull coal tubs through the narrow and cramped mines which were too small for an adult to maneuver. After The Mines Act, Shetland ponies became a hot commodity for the jobs previously held by children.
This hearty pony is known for its long life cycle, sturdy footing, stamina and excellent eyesight. It can carry up to half of its body weight on its back for long distances. These favorable characteristics made the Shetland popular for carrying peat on the islands as well as pulling coal carts in the mines. These ponies known as "pit ponies" were mainly used for coal mines until the introduction of the Miniature horse.

Question of the day: Would you be open to the idea of getting another horse if it was well trained, or are you content with the horse/horses that you already have?

For now the horses that I have keep me pretty busy, but in a couple years I might look into buying another horse ( if my mom and dad let me).

Thank you so much for all your support!

Had a busy afternoon. I didn't ride Sadie until after dark. Weather was perfect, too. Sadie was a little stubborn. I worked with her on 'whoa'. Got a ways to go on that. Austin worked with her over the weekend while I was at work. He rode after I did. She was a pain for him. Lazy horse. As soon as I can, I've got to put Star down. She's injured her back left leg and hops when she tries to walk. The bone is showing through on the right front knee where she rammed herself into the corral during a buddy sour fit. I hate to see her in pain. Her appetite is good, tho'. She eats a lot. I called the vet. With mileage, it'll be $212 to put her down, plus another $200 to $300 to remove her. Will have to somehow borrow the money. The sooner the better. Hugs and a vote.

The Gypsy Vanner, Gypsy Horse, Gypsy Cob, Irish Cob, Tinker Travelers Horse and various other names are all used to describe this amazing horse. However, the Gypsy Vanner Horse Society established the first registry to give the horses a name and an organization to track the closely guarded, original bloodlines, of the Romany Gypsy breeders. The name of the Registry was carefully selected not only to identify the people that created this magical breed, but to acknowledge the horse’s history as well. The Gypsy Vanner Horse must possess a certain look and meet a clear conformation standard, ensuring that we may reproduce the same quality horse that the first Romany Gypsy breeders dreamed of.
For hundreds of years the nomadic people known as gypsies have traveled the roads of Europe and the United Kingdom in beautiful decorated living wagons. To maintain this wandering way of life, they created an extraordinary breed of horse. It had to have enough endurance and strength to pull the heavy family wagon, the ability to subsist on whatever grazing could be found along the side of the road and an extremely calm, willing temperament. The result , after hundreds of years of selective breeding , is a beautiful, powerful and supremely gentle Gypsy Vanner Horse.

We had snow yesterday! It snowed almost all morning but melted as soon as it hit the ground.Sierra got a pretty bad cut on her hind leg and it swelled up quite a bit. I didnt do very much with the horses yesterday because it was a very cold and blustery day. Poor Dakota is without a shed( he has been without one ever since his old one got wrecked by the toronado).Thankfully my dad ordered him a new shed and it should be delivered by next week sometime. Dakota is a tough little guy but I know he will enjoy having a shed again.

Question of the day: Have you ever had to go to the hospital or get stitches for a horse related injury?

This is the second time I have had to get stitches for an injury caused by a horse. The first time was when Dakota bucked me off on the driveway and a really sharp rock made a deep gash on my nose.

Have a horsy day and once again thank you all so much for all the votes and support!

I took my dog, Scruffy, to the vet for a check up and a rabies shot Wednesday. He was so good. He weighs 58lbs and is healthy. Spent some time with the girls when I got home. Had to spray them for flies and mosquitoes. Should be riding, again, in a month. Hugs and a Thursday vote.

So glad the barrel racing is going well! Dropping by with a quick vote tonight. I was going to try blogging on Sunday but ended up watching the grand prix dressage from the Olympics that I had recorded. Wow, I'm just in awe.

And I wanted to share how happy I am that my home team, British, won both the team gold and the individual gold, bronze, and 5th. Wow, what a great competition!

So sorry if I wrote a spoiler but I figured by now you would have seen it if you wanted to.

After watching the dressage I went on a 25 mile bike ride with my friends and the dogs. It sure felt great to get out even though it's quite smokey here.

Anyway, here's your vote!

PS I uploaded some smokey photos on Pippin's page of a sunset from the other night. And a really cool sunset from another night in between the smoke.

Hi HC Friends. A friend came into work tonight and offered me a free horse. He's 3 years old and needs work. Not as big as Sadie. Don't know if he's a gelding or not. So tempting, but a horse is expensive. I fall behind, at times, with things I need to do for Sadie and Star. If money was a little better. It will be soon. Would like to know more. Will be down to just Sadie in a few months. Have to do some thinking. Need an opinion. Thanks. Hugs and a vote.

How are you doing? How did your first barrel race go? 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. Both Prince and Eddie won hotd recently(ish). 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. :)

I spent some time Thursday with the girls. Hate to admit that I was late with giving Sadie her 4 in 1 shot. I picked it up yesterday. The man at the feed store told me how to give it to her. I put her halter on her, and Austin diverted her attention with carrots while I gave it to her. Such a good girl. I kept checking her. She's doing good. I didn't put them back in the corral, either. The property behind my house is fenced in with field fencing. I decided to just keep the corral gate open. Sadie loves to nap in the loose hay. I've got some of it put up, so she can't destroy it. Star's enjoying the freedom, too. I have a yard light up, so I can keep a check on them. I had it put up when I first got Lightning and Star.....I have a busy work weekend. Austin will be doing some of my voting for me. Leaving everyone a hug and a vote.
