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.
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!
Domino has had a few foals since being at Western Star, his most recent is with Tinkerbelle.
I should have a post soon with updates about this blog an my riding.
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.
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.
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.
Will working with Snowflake. Also, Will’s last name is McDaniel. No relation to Amber McDaniel.
Trail Ride. Sam’s riding Coffee Cake, Jen’s riding Sam, and Will’s riding Sapphire.
Bailey eating the sun.
The cattle herd. Left to right: Molasses, Rocky, no name, Buddy, and Moose.
Trail riding again. Jen’s riding Tawil, Will’s riding Shasta, and Sam’s riding Blackfire.
I should have a post about the horses I got for Christmas within the week!
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.
To see the tutorial I used, go here.
Luna with Ebony. We had Luna in here when she had Ebony last Fall.
We then had to move them out while Traveler was on stall rest after he injured himself on a fallen tree.
I had Gracie and Buddy in there for a photo shoot the other day.
And then Molly Sue and Rosie Sunshine were in the stall over the holidays.
New photos coming soon!
Also, I would LOVE to have suggestions for a new photo shoot. So please leave some!
Merry Christmas everyone!!!
Merry Christmas from everyone here at Western Star Stables!
Hope you all have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Hey! Santa even came to the stable!
So, I moved my stable up to my bedroom again due to holiday affairs.
The stallions pasture and minis/Shetland pastures are under my bed, as well as the mini barn, round pen, and winner’s circle.
Sorry for the crappy quality photos.
We have a second stallions pasture where the old one was. This time it just has western stallions.
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.
Belinda and Faxa share the paddock next to Luna’s stand alone stall. I’ll catch up on that later. 😀
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.
Erika riding Queenie and leading Jingle Bells.
Recently I got a new horse. Actually, he is a very old retired horse.
His name is King, his show name is King of Country and he is the originally (I think) Tinker/Gypsy Vanner stallion.
I’m so happy that I got this horse. He is sooooo cute!
Look at dat face!
I really like this model and I am so lucky to have him.
Hangin’ out with his new bestie Domino.
Look for up coming Christmas-y posts!
Happy 3rd birthday to Horse Crazy for Girls!
Thank you all for sticking with me through out the growth of this blog!
Happy Halloween everyone!
I was finally able to make costumes for more than one horse unlike last year.
I used the same candy as last since I have been insanely busy and hadn’t had time to make more candy.
Tawil and Starlight got to dress up as Dracula horses. Zey vant to suck your blood!
Coffee Cake got to be a mummy like Gracie last year.
Flash back to last year’s picture.
Luna is supposed to be a skeleton. I drew it with white crayon and I should be able to get it off with a magic eraser.
Amber with Count Starlight.
Sam with Coffee Cake the mummy.
Amber with Luna. There was originally a mask to go with the costume. I’m currently using it for Traveller though it is a bit big.
Lucy with Count Tawil. You can see the jack-o-lantern I made last year in the arena with a light inside of it.
Happy Halloween everyone! Don’t eat to much candy and remember to brush your teeth!
P.S. I’m staying up late tonight to watch The Nightmare Before Christmas. Alone. Although Jack, our Clydesdale colt will probably be with me. It’s his favorite movie. After all, he is named after the mane (I mean main) character. Preview below!
Favorite clip. Watch this guys lip.
Missing my baby.
Sometimes I wonder what takes Memorial Day so long to come around.
