BowDex

About Me

Active within 1984 Days

I am from The Woodlands, TX and I've been a Club Horse member for 6 years, 2 months and 12 days

Nicknames: Her registered name is BowDex, from half of her Dam's name and half of her Sire's... Most people call her Bow, though.

Age: 25 years old

Gender: Mare

Breed: Quarter Horse

Height: 15-15:2 HH, somewhere in there

Color: Blood-Bay with a blaze

Type of Riding: All around Western- she was a champion Barrel Racer in her day, and has traveled around the world and won, and even at 19 she's still a speed demon (but she's gentle, and doesn't go unless you ask)!

My Horse's Achievements: She has had 3 BEAUTIFUL babies!!!

My Horse's Favorite Treat: Apple wafers and carrots, the usual!

My Horse's Favorite Things To Do: Eat, spend time with her daughter, run and play with her purple ball, play in hay, BARREL RACE, have her picture taken (she's a superstar- lol!), and get attention in general.

Pet Peeves: She's very calm!

My Horse's motto: "I ♥ love ♥ to run!!!"

How We Met

BowDex is NOT my horse!!! She's just a super horse that I know, and unfortunately we can't get her, but I still love her to death! She is a truly remarkable horse! Bow is a champion barrel racer, has had three beautiful foals, and has lived with her original owner for 18 of her 19 years. Her owner has been offered up to $35,000 for her, because she is a champion and has such great bloodlines, and because of her awesome attitude she is worth every penny. We met her for the first time on July 22, '08 and she is a spectacular horse- patient, calm, easy going, and gentle, a perfect beginner's horse! She has a stud colt named Huckleberry (the first horse I've ever met who had braces on his teeth and a 4 year old daughter. BowDex truly is a special horse, and I'm lucky to know her!--- And, by a twist of fate, my family and I now own Huckleberry, BowDex's son who I mentioned earlier! Be sure to check out his page!.

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!

I will try to find out the names for you! Soo yup, Strawbee is doin just fine! Keep those votes comin'! Yesterday I introduced you to Mamie 120341 and I want to thank you for all of the votes she got! So please please go see her again soon! also, please please vote ZORRO 116699 for HOTM!

Hi!
Hi, I got to go home yesterday!!! It was great to see the horses again; they were kind of wet from the rain and stuff we have been getting. Unfortunately no riding, we have this weird mix of snow, slush and water on the ground, too slippery to ride on, plus I had too much studying and stuff to do. We are having weird weather right now, and since we got all this rain/slush/snow stuff, it is just going to freeze up on us the end of this week. Oh well. I think I am going to add a “Did you know?” fact or a quick tip, like I did in my last blog. Quick fact: The Romans where the first to come up with the idea of a horse shoe, but instead of nailing on the shoe they used leather thongs so they where removable. If you want to get some great e-mail newsletters that have training updates along with just current events, check out America’s QH daily, it is free and you do not have to be a member of AQHA to get their newsletter. Oh, my chemistry test I took on Monday went well, I got a 97% on it! Remember C Me Shine is running for HOTD on Feb 28th. Please keep voting for Zorro so he can get HOTM! If you would like to see something in my daily blogs, just let me know! That is all for now, Amber and Zorro.

Come visit me, Zorro.

Hi1
Ok, nothing interesting happened yesterday, but it got cold enough for slush to form this morning. I have a Chemistry Lab exam today, wish me luck! Just so all of you know, that have not been in MN before. We get about as cold in the winter as any place in the US, and almost as hot in the summer. It is because we do not have any oceans nearby. Plus our summers are sooooo humid, it feels at least 10degrees warmer than it actually is. Last year we had a very nice mild summer, I LOVED it! It made it nice to ride, and I did not have to ride before 10:00 in the morning when it starts to get hot. We have a nicely sized above ground pool that we put up every year to keep us cool. Today’s TIP: now that spring is coming around, soak all of your brushes, and dirty halters in a bucket filled with warm water and a little bit of soap! It works wonders, I am sure some of you already do this, but if you do not, it is amazing how well it cleans everything! Ttyl, Amber and Zorro p.s. I left a vote for you!

Come visit me, Zorro.

yes we reached ALL of our goals!
Hi guys! Heres an update on STRAWBERRY: Well, it does not look like he will be coming up to Saratoga for this summer :[ but Terry says that he EXTREMELY happy at the new barn he is at! He has new friends and everything! He is even bucking and bolting with the youngsters! Hehe thats why his motto is what it is. I myself am happy for him, I dont think that he would make a nice and safe trip here and every time he comes up he looses a TON of weight. I dont think that we could take a chance like that with a 25 year old horse! But, as long as he is happy, I am happy! Ill keep the updates comin'! Thanks you all for supporting me with all of my HOTM canidates! WE really aprecciate it! Petite Flur came up with a funnt thought....I may be able to do a "hat trick" this summer! Hehe! Please keep the votes coming! In case your reading this and have no idea wht im talking about here it is : I am running 3 of my horses for HOTM this summer! Pippi for June's HOTM/Jewel for August's HOTM/and Deacon for September's HOTM! Yes I am crazy aren't I?? Thanks you to the people who DONT think im crazy...you are the people who keep me going every day and night! Heres a vote for you and your horse! :p also, PLEASE vote ZORRO for HOTM this month! thanks!

Hi!
Thanks for the lovely comment on Zorro! So what do you do with your horses? Well, sorry, no training update today, I am staying in town were I go to college the next couple days, due to the road conditions, so I am burdening my mother with the chore of taking care of my horses! But as soon as I ride again, I will be sure to put out an update! To all of you with temperatures in the 50s, 60s and 70s, I challenge you to come spend a winter in MN!!! Well, we actually did get to 40 degrees yesterday and it rained, and it is still around 38 degrees this morning and raining more!, but it is going to be cooling off again, and all the standing water on the roads will probably just freeze there, that is why I am staying in town, to avoid having to drive on ice. It probably would not be bad on a short drive but I am 35 miles away from the campus where I take my classes, somedays I think 65 mi/hr takes forever, lol! Well, thanks for voting for Zorro, please keep them coming so he can get HOTM! As always, leaving a vote for you! Thanks, Zorro and Amber

Hey everyone! I have another blog! First, Jewel only needs two more votes so go and vote! You might win! Second, I would like to ask all of you to come and vote for my friend Oliver 102271! He is going for 800 yes thats 800 votes! So we really need all the help we can get! Please go and vote! He really deserves it! He is a miniature horse who will just win your heart over! If you read the How We Met section it tell about him and his tough life he has been through. :[ It made me sad but happy to know that he has such a great owner now! Third, I would like to ask all of you to come vote for my horses! They have (almost) reached all of their goals and I would love them all to get up to 500 votes soon! I also made another horse profile. His name is Strawberry and he is an awesome horse! If you could go check him out too that would be great! I love you all horse friends! So, please remember to go and vote vote vote! Thanks so so much! :p

If you have any ideas...
Hola everyone! Some of y'all may have read that Butter's leg isn't doing well, and I'm growing out of her faster and faster... so my trainer, gparent's, and mom think it's past time for me to find a new horse! For the most part, Butter's is retired, but don't worry: I'm NEVERRRRRR getting rid of her, everyone that knows her is in love with her! So, I am starting over in the tear-filled yet all exciting process of searching for a new horse--- gosh this will be my 3rd! I'm not in a huge hurry, I'm going to let things happen on God's timing, but all the same I'm looking! So, if anyone comes across a horse for sale in the general Houston/Dallas area of Texas or anywhere in between, please let me know! I am looking for something 5-12 years old that rides Western, I'm not picky about breed and I don't care if it's registered (I have a price range of about $600) but I want something over 14:3 HH and I'm looking for a gelding or mare, no studs! I tried a couple horse-finding sights but I didn't really see what I was looking for! So, if y'all see anything at your local feed store or in your classifieds, I'd love to hear about it! I'm sure it'll be a while before I find another great horse, but all the same I'm looking!

Hi again! I apologize for the generic blog today, but just trying to get back with my horsey buddys and update them. Sorry I haven't been on in days and days. I was sick all last week and I just got out of the hospital today where I've been since Friday. I have blood clots in my arm. Just when my foot was better from Cody stepping on it and his lameness was better, I had to go and get put in the hospital! Yuck! The doctor at the hospital says I have to take it easy for a while and no "horsey" stuff for at least 4 weeks. I have to go to another doctor in 2 days and see what she says.
I hope things are good with you all and you are getting lots of riding time in ! Take care and give all your horses hugs pets and carrots for me! I left you a vote!!

Everyone: first of all, I'm so glad to be back! It has been a long summer, and a hard transition! We finally made it to our new house in Houston just this weekend, and Butterscotch should be here (hopefully) by the end of the month. I am so sorry that I haven't been on in forever, I hope y'all aren't too mad at me! Things have just been so crazy! Hopefully, now that we have internet, I'll be on much more often. Butterscotch is doing very well- for now she is staying with my gparent's in Lindale and lovin' life! I go see her and ride every weekend, and I look forward to having her here with me! Dreamer has finally left the farm: she found a new owner in Arkansas, and is doing very well. I still love her and I wish her the best of luck! BowDex is doing good, too, and is happy in her home. I, my mom, and my step-dad are doing good- we're finding out what it means to be a family (easier said than done!) ha ha! I hope y'all and your equine buddies are doing well! Here's a vote from Butterscotch and I! Please comment back if you get the chance!

^< ♥ >^ Hey everyone! Yes, I sure have written a lot of letters lately! The reason I haven't been on very often is because I have been driving back and forth from Lindale to Houston (a 4 hour drive) every week or so to be with my mom and step-dad. As it turns out, I've decided to move there so I can be with my mom. School starts there next week, and I don't even have my classes yet (!!!!), so I'm trying to get moved, get that taken care of, and trying to get Ms. Butter's there (and we don't have internet YET at the apartment, so that's why I haven't been on, but we will in October when we get the townhome). I found a really good place to board her, spectacular people and for only $175 a month! I'm so excited about that, it's a blessing. However, it looks like I won't be able to get her there until September-October, (and even then I'll have to pay the first couple months by myself), because we're short on money and our townhouse isn't move-in ready until October! Ahh! Dreamer, sadly, is probably going back to Wisconsin because she's gotten so bad we can hardly even halter her! Anyways... I'm sorry to talk so long, I just wanted to let everyone know that because we don't have internet until October I will not be on as often as I normally am. I'm not mad at anyone, I promise, and I'm glad y'all are all so sweet to me and supportive! The true blessing is that I will have Butterscotch with me no matter where I go, and I'm so glad! Thanks everyone for reading this and understanding! Sincerely, Butters and Dreamer. ^< ♥ >^
