Daisy's First Day Home

Daisy's first day here was great. I thought she would be a lot more timid, but after being in the pasture and the stall a couple of hours, she was fine. I even rode her on the trail and was surprised to find that she is even better behaved here than at the other place. We rode for about 15 min. on our trail, and she even went up a big hill without a problem! I am so happy. My dream came true. The pics. are just of her in the pasture and me leading her into the barn. I am very happy. What is a nicer thing to see at 5:45 a.m. than a horse in the barn?!?! She even whinnied when I came! I will post more later, keep looking and commenting!

Welcome to the 'Ranch', Daisy!!!

Daisy arrived here today!! She got here at about 8:45 pm in a trailer. She was pretty excited and drenched in sweat, but of course, the grass and hay made everything all better. She is now in her stall, hopefully going to sleep. She is very excited and whinnied a few times, but she is quiet now. I will post pictures of her arrival soon, but right now, here is a video-tour of her barn. I hope you all like it! More pictures later.

Pony Rides!

Daisy did a great job the other day giving a pony ride to a little friend of mine. She was fabulous. She just walked around really calm, with me and her little charge sitting on her and "chatting". She was great. The little miss wants to come back and ride again very soon. Daisy and I are looking foreword to it. I thought this was a pretty picture of it. My mother changed it to black and white. It looks pretty cool, huh? Daisy looks very poised in the picture too. I just thought I'd post it.

Stable Buddy 2-Hannah

Hey! This is Hannah. She is another of Daisy's stablemates. She is a cute Appaloosa mare and she is blind in her left eye. You can't see it in the pictures. Her eye doesn't keep her from being ridden, though! She is still great to ride and is very mellow on trail. My mother rode her before, too. She does English and a little bit on Western, too. She is owned by Daisy's former owner, who uses her for her boys and for trail riding lessons. So, that's another stable buddy!

Stable Buddy-Sarina

This is Sarina. She is a 6 yr. old Haflinger pony. She is adorable. Her owner owns her and another horse at the barn where Daisy is being boarded. Sarina can drive a cart and be ridden. As you can see by the pictures, she has quite a personality. She has to have toys in her stall or she will almost die of boredom. She has a 2 balls that are filled with treats and she picks them up and shakes them with her teeth like a dog to get them out!! She is hilarious. She will constantly poke her head out of her stall next to Daisy and pull back her lips to show her teeth!! Anyway, I just wanted to show one of Daisy's stablemates. Hopefully I can get some other horses from the barn to post.

Just an update, our barn at our house just got electricity today, and the we will start to build the fence on Saturday. We are aiming to have Daisy here in about 2-3 weeks.

I Got You!!!

I am getting into the habit of kissing Daisy. Every time I do I say, " I got you!!!!!". It's like a game. She is so silly. She doesn't mind the kisses anymore, and she doesn't put her ears back as much either, which was a problem at first. It's just the way she is. I think she will always put her ears back for the rest of her life, though she doesn't mean anything by it. It's funny, if you aren't looking at her, or she thinks you aren't, she has her ears foreword, but the minute you look they are back, like she is trying to act smart.. When she sees me with a treat she puts them back really far, and her eyes get really big like she is begging! She looks like a dog. She is so funny. She would make a great cartoon character.

Fly Mask

Daisy got a fly mask the other day. She had gnats in her ears and they were biting her really bad. Normally we could have smeared Vaseline in it or something, but her ears were so irritated, she wouldn't let you touch them! We bought a mask with ear covers. I was worried that she wouldn't want to wear it and tear it off, but her previous owner must have used one on her because she was fine. I ride her in it now and she is great. The first picture is kind-a cute, she looks like a she has a bee mask on like the honey-collector's do! The second is just a picture of us having a good canter. She loves to run. Many times when I ask her to canter, she gallops. I don't mind, though, I like it. Anyway, just a short update......

Daisy-Mae is a great horse to ride. I ride her Western, and she is great. She has wonderful gaits. She was used for barrel events and team penning before, and it shows. She loves to canter and make very sharp turns, then keep cantering really fast. She is a dream-come-true to me. I just rode her bareback for the first time yesterday and again today, and she is great at that, too. Her smooth trot is very easy to sit to, and her canter is nice and slow. She brings me so much joy. Right when you get on her she wants to canter. It's hard sometimes to go through warming up with her first! She is awesome on the trails,too. She doesn't spook, just gets overly interested in her surroundings :-). I was riding her up a hill today, and, though I thought at first she was cantering, I realize now that she was galloping! It was smooth, though, and she slowed down quickly when I asked her to. I've never galloped before! It was amazing. She is starting to see me as her "person". She comes to me in the paddock and it seems like she is starting to bond with me more. I think she likes it that I ride her and work her, which is why she is starting to like me. The feeling is mutual. She likes all the personal attention she is getting a lot. She hasn't been given this much TLC that I am giving her every day in a while. I love her. Anyway, I got kind of carried away. I just wanted to show a pic. of her and I. More updates later.

Miss Daisy-Mae

This is my 9 year old chesnut brown Quarter horse mare, Daisy. I have owned her for almost three weeks now, and I love her. She does Western and English and was used for Western events before I got her. I will use her as a trail horse now. She is very energetic and has a mind of her own. I love her. I will post pictures every now and then when I have new ones of her so don't expect daily updates. Happy trails!!
