Into the Spotlight… Coffee Cake!

So, I’m trying to work on making Into the Spotlight posts for all of the horses so I can change The Herd page.

Coffee Cake_01

Coffee Cake, or WSS’s Cloud Clap is our Quarter Horse stallion with a cream colored body and a brown mane and tail. Coffee Cake is best friends with Texas. Coffee Cake has fathered one foal since we got him last summer. He was able to bring him some ribbons in the local shows. He is owned by Samantha Forester, one of our very promenent boarders.

Coffee Cake is a strong worker and works amazing with our cattle. He will hopefully be put up for breeding with in the next two years.

Riding Updates

So, as some of you may know, Sam is away for the winter. I have been riding at another barn since then, but I haven’t been super happy with the lessons. So I was shopping around for another barn to ride at the other day. A lot of them are SUPER expensive, so they were out of the question. But I remembered a boarding stable up the road from my house. I had looked on their website before and I knew they didn’t do lessons, but I thought “I wonder if they would like any help taking care of their horses…” So I called the number on the website. Turns out it was the owners cell phone and she was in Florida. I talked with her awhile about working there and she said it would probably work out. I would just call her around the time she got back and talk to her again then. So she said I would probably be doing stalls, tacking up, maybe some lunging and jumping, whatever I was comfortable with. I was like, “If there’s a horse, I’m good!” So we were talking, and proceeds to say, “So would you want a paycheck or would you like to work for lessons?” I was ASTOUNDED!!! I said lessons since I would hopefully be riding there when the YMCA horses are away for the winter. Nothing in final yet, but she said we could go over and check it out when ever to see if I liked the place. It’s so nice and big! I really hope it works out. We talked with the guy who’s currently in charge and he was really nice to. So I will probably still volunteer at the YMCA like I was planning to, but not as much since I may be working some where else.

 

I will probably finish out the school year riding at the other barn, but other than that I will probably not ride there again.

ALSO, I am hoping to “renovate” The Herd page soon so that there will be one picture of each horse and a link to their Into the Spotlight… post.

Into the Spotlight… Domino!

Domino is a piebald Tinker or Gypsy Vanner stallion. He is Gypsy’s sire and Tinkerbelle’s mate. Domino is also besties with Buck our Clydesdale gelding.

IMG_4548

Domino is named after one of the horses in DB Productionz A Fault in Love series. Domino isn’t usually ridden for shows, but the girls do enjoy riding him bareback around the stables every now and then. After some recent DNA tests, we have discovered that King is Domino’s father! Coal_DominoSnow

Domino has had a few foals since being at Western Star, his most recent is with Tinkerbelle. 

Domino-?

I should have a post soon with updates about this blog an my riding. 

Bye!

Schleich Team Roping

I know I said I would post about this earlier, but I’ve had a lot on my hands since then. So here we go.

For Christmas this year I was able to purchase the Schleich Team Roping Set. I was really happy to get it and was very excited about welcoming our first male rider.

Will riding Koda

Will came to Western Star on Christmas in Titus’s truck. He had come the night before to grab the truck and trailer so he could bring his mare and calf over. Everyone was oblivious.

Working with Snowflake

Everyone was surprised. Titus not as much since he knew Will was coming at one point.

Will and his mare Sapphire are professional ropers and will hopefully be bringing home some gold at the next horse shows.

Trail Ride!

As I mentioned earlier, Will also brought along his calf, Molasses.

Fitting in with the rest of the herd

Sorry I haven’t being posting lately, I will hopefully have more time to do so in the future. Also, if you all would be interested in seeing some super cute foals, just go to https://foalpatrol.com/ for live stream of mares that are having foals or already have.

So, the other day me and my sister took some of our horses down to the bottom of our driveway.

Will and Sapphire. Will is something I bought myself for Christmas. I bought myself a Christmas present this year, and I decided to get the Schleich Team Roping Set. I’ll do a post on it later.

willsapphireroping

Will knew Titus before he came to Western Star. The night before Christmas, he came and snuck Titus’s truck and trailer away in order to get his horse and calf to the barn. He’s a rodeo boy at heart, and sings like an angel (err, George Strait). So when he showed up on Christmas morning in Titus’s truck, he was playin’ and singin’ Amarillo By Morning with the King of Country.

Stand Alone Stall

Hello Everyone!

So I finally got around to taking pictures and making a post of the stand alone stall I made, um, last September?

Originally I made if for Luna, but I have switched horses around a LOT.

Luna Standing Stall_02

To see the tutorial I used, go here.

Luna with Ebony. We had Luna in here when she had Ebony last Fall.

Traveler Standing Stall_01

We then had to move them out while Traveler was on stall rest after he injured himself on a fallen tree.Traveler Standing Stall_02

I had Gracie and Buddy in there for a photo shoot the other day.

Also, I would LOVE to have suggestions for a new photo shoot. So please leave some!

Decorating for Christmas

So, I moved my stable up to my bedroom again due to holiday affairs.

IMG_7073

The stallions pasture and minis/Shetland pastures are under my bed, as well as the mini barn, round pen, and winner’s circle.

IMG_7074

Sorry for the crappy quality photos.

IMG_7075

IMG_7077

We have a second stallions pasture where the old one was. This time it just has western stallions.

IMG_7078

We also have a paddock under my sister’s dresser where Abelard resides. He’s finally getting into the Christmas spirit with his winter-y hat.

IMG_7080

Belinda and Faxa share the paddock next to Luna’s stand alone stall. I’ll catch up on that later. 😀

IMG_7081

Currently, Mollie Sue is in Luna’s stall.

And there’s Rosie Sunshine!!!

And then there’s the puppies. They’re just so darn cute!

 

On to the exciting part.

I finally set up the stable for Christmas! Yeah!

I have the lights in the main barn again. Taylor’s getting Starlight out for an exercise.

Amber and Winnie Riding Luna and Blackfire/Coal. I still have to get lights in here, but I decided that getting pictures up was more important.
