elles-pets-054.jpgelles-pets-006.jpgDoc, I really wnat to know why you sweat when it’s below 0ut outsde!!! It’s weird how clod it gets in the barn and yet the horses still sweat! I am bunded up in about eighteen coats and Doc is sweating! Crazy horses! I always feel bad for the horses that are outside, so for christmas all the horses got blankets. I think Tigger would rather have a blanket on, but Pharoah still doesn’t like blankets, Keiki loves her blanket. And Maverick not only looks adorable, he likes his blanket as well. i’m glad they all got what they wanted for Christmas.

Head out of the stall- Doc, with a sweat mark from his bridle 🙂

Hears what Tigger’s gotten for Christmas for the past 3 years:
2003: A new loving home with me! 🙂
2004: A spiffy green halter and shank
2006: Don’t tell Tigger… it’s a surprise, All 4 horses Keiki, Pharoah, Maverick and of course Tigger are getting a little stocking with peppermints and carrots inside! They are so cute!!!!!!

Keiki is a beautiful paint mare, she is a superstar. Keiki came from a boring home where she wasn’t loved, ridden, or even cared for!

When Shelly and my Grandma Nancy bought her she liked to spend her spare time standing on two hind legs, she reared and reared and reared, we feared we would have to re-sell her luckily we know and wonderful man who also has a horse named Lady (see below) and he cured her! We hope to breed keiki someday to the perfect stud! She would have the cutest baby ever! ohhh she is the most beautiful horse ever! Thanks for being a superstar Keiki!!!!

Maverick was born with rodeo in his blood, he should be in the NRA right now throwin’ cowboys 10 ft into the air, makin’ them wish they had stayed home.

Instead Maverick found a home with a girl who didn’t really appreciate him, he went unridden for a long time, until Maddy found him.

Maddy and Maverick look better together than a lot of people that I know, he’s the horse Maddy looks best on in the whole world. Maddy loves Maverick, and although Maverick can be a brat, Maddy loves him anyway, and MAverick has at last like many of our horses come to a new and loving home. It seems that we have happened upon the horses that need us most.

Thanks Maddy and Maverick you’re so cute together!

Lady is a Palomino Quarter horse, she doesn’t belong to us but she is one of my favorite horses to spend time with. She belongs to Shawn our friend who sometimes keeps us company on the Trails, and Lady’s presence has been on our ranch in Utah for few years now. I fallen in love with many horse in my lifetime, but only a few stick out and she’s one of them.

Shawn got lady when she was a 2 year old filly, he remembers galloping, playing, and working with the young palomino on a rouph-ridin’ ranch in Wyoming. He worked cows in the mountains, learned to shoe all different kinds of horses and teach others to ride.

When Shawn was ready to go to college, Lady came right along, she and Shawn went to “horse college.”

 Lady learned to jump, and do some dressage while there. (I’m sure all the other horses felt rather outclassed when in Lady’s presence.)

She then came to live with us as Shawn was teaching in the same city as we live with our ranch, and therefore Lady would be much closer and Shawn would get to see her much more often.

 Thank you Shawn for letting us love LAdy! I hope she comes back to Utah in the spring!

There is something about jumping a horse over a fence, something that makes you feel good. Perhaps it’s the risk, the gamble. In any event it’s a thing I need. - W Faulkener
