QH Filly. 1 ½ yrs. old. This gorgeous baby had never been in
a trailer before she was sent to the feedlot. During the loading
process, someone tied her in the trailer and she ended up flipping
over backwards! She has cuts and bruises and a large gash on
her left foreleg above the knee. The cut on her leg is not being
treated. [Her full sister is there also (2 yr. old and even
more gorgeous), but is not a "rescue" as she will
be going to a sale where the prices are quite a bit higher.
Killer buyers do not frequent that sale.]
new name is Cherish and her new mom is Stacie! Yes! Stacie is
beside herself with excitement about Cherish. This little filly
will have a wonderful home with two other horses and she will
be spoiled. Which of course she deserves! Yee Haw! Thanks
Stacie, for seeing this little girl and wanting to help her.
Stacie will pick Cherish up next weekend and take her to the
home she deserves and a life of love!
wanted to tell you that we had a great trip home. Cherish
was calm, cool, and collected all the way. Only kicked once!
should see her, she is so happy. She says hello to me every
time I come around. I brought some of the kids over to see
her yesterday, and she played with them so well......such
a good girl!
gave her a bath and clipped her yesterday afternoon. She
just stood there and behaved herself like a little lady..........such
a good girl!
took her for a walk around the neighborhood and she was
a perfect angel. Didn't wince, jump, shy or screw around
the whole time.......such a good girl!
a good girl, need I say that again? Maybe I should change
her name to "Such A Good Girl ????? Just kidding!
12-31-99 - As for Cherish and I, we are busy little
beavers! I received Cherish' registration papers in the mail
recently, her registered name is "LIL BIT CHERISHED".
We went to our first show on December 5 for a Halter class.............................Cherish
made the first cut out of 33 horses and placed in the top ten
- no ribbon. But we aren't complaining! It was a long class
and we were judged for 40 miuntes before the judge cut the class
down to 10 horses. About that time Cherish was just a tad bit
tired of standing still and the ants were definitely in her
pants! But she was an angel the entire time - from the primping
to the ride home!
in case you forgot - she is the one who would NOT go in the
trailer! But she is happy as a clam in there now! I take her
and my other gelding to the state park every weekend for a change
of pace - and she is standing at the trailer pawing her feet
to get in, the second she sees me back the truck in to hook
up! Never would have guessed the little s**t would turn out
all the halter training that Cher has been getting, I have also
been ground driving her. What an excellent student she is! I can
drive her through the entire trail course now without any problems.
I have also been ponying her with a saddle and she doesn't mind
it a bit! At first I thought she might give me some problems and
I wanted to confront those when she was a little closer to my
size.....but she proved me wrong! I plan to start riding her as
a three year old.......and I think she will be well on her way
to being an excellent pleasure horse then!
4/1/05 - Asyou know Cherish suffered a fractured humeruos
about 5 years ago. Despite my fear of hurting her, my vet assured
me she would be just fine – so off I went to give her a
job. And boy-oh-boy was she ready to be a grown-up! Within the
last two months she has gone from a pasture buddy to moving cows
and just started working the barrel pattern. The muscle in her
shoulder has gotten much stronger and she is starting to bulk
up like more like her QH breeding. I wish I had not waited so
long! I included photos for you, so you could take a peek and
see how she has grown-up! More photos to follow…I promise
