How We Met

The first time I saw him he was just a skinny horse in a field. My best friends aunt bought him from a horse trader for her kids.

A few motnhs later I was returning home from visitation with my father and my friend and her aunt showed up. They wanted to see our chickens... I didn't want to but they made me go out to the chicken house... it was dark but they made me look in after they had looked and oohed and ahhed over the chickens... and so to make them let me go in I looked...

That was when I saw him... the tail end of my very own horse. It was the best day of my life.

Whiskey and I were together for 22 years. He and I went to collage together. He was there when i got married and when my husband died. He moved with me from CT to Wv to PA back to CT and then to MA and finally back to PA again.

Whiskey was put to sleep on May 22 2005 at the age of 36.

Thanks!
Thanks to all who voted. It would be cool if Whiskey someday got HOTD.

The Standardbred breed is just a wonderful horse and I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a good horse.

The collage I attended did not acccept gaited horses at the time. But I did not tell them Whiskey paced.

The first time my riding instructors rode him they were so confused. He looked like a QH but had that funny gait they did not know. When I told them he was a pacer but that he trotted too they were amazed. It took a lot of work to get Whiskey to trot consistently and to canter with balance. But eventually he became a highly valued school horse.

When I graduated Whiskey remained behind so I could get settled into my new life. When I called them a year later to say I was coming to get him the begged me not to take him away. Whiskey graduated collage at the age of 23.

The secret to long life....
Whiskey was a horse that always loved to go for a ride. Even in his last riding days he was a spirited boy who loved to run and jump. I honestly think that a horse benefits from being ridden at whatever level he can for as long as possible.

Pics
The photos were taken when he was 32... I wish I had pics of him the last few years but I think I only got one right before he died. Not sure where it is.

Whiskey retired from riding at age 35. He died about 7 months later at age 36.

He was one of the best horses I have eve had the privilege to know.

Come visit me, Jewel, Whiskey, Baby & Pumper.
