Confronting the Deadly Arabian Horse Eating Dragon



I hate to be complaining about the weather again but it's hard not to when it's nearly June and the weather is not above 60°. It's been so freaky here today it's hard to walk to the barn without being soaked or worse yet, struck by lightning. Still the horses need to be cared for so those trips to the barn are a must. Each of us has been creative in the methods we've employed trying to get stuff done with as little impact from the weather as possible. Not an easy task on such a strange day with

The Rehabilitation of Storm....... The First Trail Ride.....

MiKael's Mania - Arabian Horses Archive on May 27, 2011, 12:57 am


Dandy was the perfect horse to use as a companion for Storm on the trails. Not just because the horse has tons of experience but mostly he just plain loves trail riding. I don't think the horse ever showed any kind of concern right from his first trips into the woods. He has always been confident and bold, moving out like the woods are his kingdom. A pro from his very first trail ride those 15 or so years ago.Over that time Dandy has introduced a number of horses to the trails including Legs and

Blogger Fits.........

MiKael's Mania - Arabian Horses Archive on May 25, 2011, 11:55 pm


Is anyone else having problems with Blogger? It's giving me fits and the list of reasons seems to be growing. I got a comment from Winter Prospario in the form of an email because Blogger wouldn't let her post it directly to my blog which I totally understood because I'm having the same issue with comments I am trying to post on the blogs I am reading. Some go through fine others don't recognize me as being logged in and will not let me long in despite many attempts. Very frustrating.In addition

Let me 'splain

Dressage Mom Archive on May 25, 2011, 10:17 pm


So, I'm done with my little temper tantrum. Sorry about that.Yeah, it's not that big a deal that people say I should retire Kaswyn and buy Lee. I shouldn't be such an over-reactive snot about it. I was just really frustrated about Kaswyn, and I was feeling sorry for myself. Believe me, I wish I could buy Lee too. He's great, and he works well for me. I just can't afford it. That makes me sad.So I just got overwhelmed and was feeling bad. I'm less drama queen about it now.It helps that I have a bit

Amoretto en Niveau 3 La saison 2011 s'est amorcé en grand au premier concours national: Dressage@Bromont, qui avait lieu du 21 au 23 mai au Parc Équestre Olympique.

The Rehabilitation of Storm



. I have posted all about the journeys I have taken with this horse from the first trade through the second trade when we came to the fork in the road on that which lead to the lawsuit It seems only appropriate that I continue on with his story as long as there is still story to tell so that brings us to the story of his rehabilitation. Before the horse came home I suspected Storm would have some issues. I had seen enough at BG's facility to know that the horse was probably being worked by the

So We’ll Just Ride On

GirlsHorseClub.com Blog Archive on May 24, 2011, 9:00 am


by Peanut, age 11 A crooked road that I will follow, And trip once or twice, The goal still in sight, And I’ll keep walking though I’ll tire, Now the stakes are getting higher, But I’ll just walk along… And though you may try and stop me, No one can stand in the way of dreams, Especially stubborn me’s dreams, Go call me relentless, I just don’t give up do I? But you can’t win without a fight, But I’ll just walk on… No need for hate on this journey, Only

The EHV-1 Virus Affects Arabian Horse Shows..... Information on Resulting Regional Qualifications... and an Opinion....



Even though the Region 5 of the Arabian Horse Associations Board of Directors meeting yesterday was NOT because of the EHV-1 situation, as you can guess this topic took up a large part of the meeting. Horse show season is in full swing so horse shows are being affected by people's reactions to this scare. What to do? seems to be on everyone's minds and that's not just what to do with your horse.Once the meeting got underway, it was a given we would discuss the virus. The reason for that is the cancellation

In the ribs

Dressage Mom Archive on May 23, 2011, 2:46 pm


Dr. Chiro came out last Thursday and gave Kaswyn another adjustment. He said that Kaswyn's left shoulder was less tight than it had been before, so the stretching has been helping him. When I told the doc that Kaswyn was still not quite even at the trot, he checked his shoulders, neck, and chest for sore sports. He found some soreness in Kaswyn's chest, right between his font legs and over on the left side.Dr. Chrio said Kaswyn could have a rib out of place, which could be pressing on the underside

Happy Birthday........Baby...........



I've had a really long day attending the Region 5 Board of Directors meeting in Ellensburg (other side of the mountains) today so I'm way too pooped to post BUT I can't let this day go by without birthday wishes for this very special boy! This is one of my favorite pictures of the little charmer. As you can see his mother is quite tolerant of the dog checking out her foal......or is it the foal checking out the dog? Whichever, this boy turned out to be quite a lover of small animals. He even has

Daffodil All Arabian Spring Horse Show.......the Final Championship.....



Part 1Not long after my friends left it was time to get heading up to the arena to school for our last class. By this time I think Legs had pretty much had it with horse showing. He had worked more at this horse show than he had the entire months preceding it. My poor Arabian horse was plumb tuckered out...........and so was I.When I held up the bridle for him to take the curb, he gave me a look I've not often seen. Normally he grabs the bit readily even when he is tired but not on this day. I got

Daffodil All Arabian Spring Horse Show....... a Surprise Visit........



Part 1Legs was not the only one tired on that Sunday morning. After the adrenaline from getting caught short and preparation time for the class had finally waned, I was dragging big time. It's a good thing I had enough to get me through the class itself because I'm not sure how I'd have been in that wall came thundering down while riding.It was on the walk back to the stalls that I felt the crash. It was seemed almost instantaneous in its dawning. I really don't know when it happened just that I
