Abtenauer: Small But Mighty

abtenauer
If you’re a horse lover and live in the country of Austria, then you probably know what an Abtenauer horse is. An Abtenauer is a small stocky horse many folks think is just a pony. That’s because the breed’s average height is only 14 to 15 hands. (A “hand” measures about four inches.) This cute lineage breed comes from a special place in Austria, an isolated valley called the Abtenauer, tucked away in the beautiful Alps Mountains not far from Salzburg.
Abtenauers, known as “draft horses,” are extremely strong for their size, but they have a sweet temperament and enjoy working with humans. Therefore, their labor mostly involves pulling wagons like buckboards loaded with people or harvested crops. Some Abtenauers also work in the forest, pulling huge tree trunks for loggers.
An interesting fact is the foals are born with curly hair and are black, blue roan, brown, or chestnut. But when the foals shed their first coat, the curls disappear, and they have straight hair from then on.
Because this little breed is confined to such a small part of the world, their number has become low, maybe as few as a hundred or so. Yet, in the Abtenauer Valley, they are quite popular and are celebrated for their stamina.
How can such a small horse have such strength to pull a wagon full of people or heavy bags of grain? If you ask me, that takes a lot of determination!
God has given the Abtenauer an elegant build with a well-shaped head and strong legs full of muscle, which allow this little horse to power up and trot with an easy flow. He truly is mighty, not only for his conformation but for his “I can do this” attitude!
Do you ever feel badly because you’re body is small or you feel “small” with the way you struggle with your studies? Maybe you’re the tiniest one in your family or in your circle of friends. Does that mean you can’t do the same things other kids do or get good grades? Do you ever say, “I can’t do that. I’m too little?” Do you ever think it?
God tells us in His Bible the size of a person doesn’t matter to Him. In fact, God has made you the way you are. Of course, if you’re short, you’re not going to be able to win at basketball or a high jump event, but God has other plans for you. Whether you’re short or thin, God loves you, and you can be mighty in whatever tasks He asks you to do.
Are you too short to help your mother dust the furniture or dry the dishes? Are you too short to get an A in that math test? Are you too short to tell someone “I love you?” I think the answer should be “I can do this!”
In Luke chapter 19, the Bible tells us of a man named Zacchaeus, who wanted to meet Jesus. Zacchaeus was so short, he couldn’t see over the crowd. But he didn’t whimper like a lost puppy and go home. Instead, he said, “I can do this!” He climbed the nearest tree, met Jesus, and became a mighty witness for God. Zacchaeus didn’t use his puny height as an excuse not to serve God.
How about you? Whether you’re small in stature or maybe you feel small inside, you can be mighty for God. Take a step of faith and see if God gives you strength you never knew you had to do the job He’s asked you to do. There’s no better time than right now to make up your mind to be a mighty warrior for God. Ask Him to help you to always have an “I can do it” attitude, and you’ll be amazed at all you’ll achieve for the Lord Jesus Christ.
You might be small, but you can still be mighty!

“For the weapons of our warfare are not fleshly, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds” (2 Corinthians 10:4).

PRAYER: Dear God, Sometimes I feel so small and weak. I pray you will help me have an “I can do this” attitude for anything you ask me to do. I am willing. Please make me mighty with your power. Thank you. In Jesus’ name, amen.
SADDLE UP! (What would God have you do now?)
To learn more about our wonderful God, try to read your Bible every day. You could ask for a children’s Bible to help you understand it better.
Start reading in the book of John in the New Testament. Write a verse from the book of John that you really like.

Take your ride: (Do you know?) When the Abtenauers aren’t working, they’re grazing, sometimes with cows, in lush pastures embedded in the beautiful Abtenauer Valley.

Dismount and cool down your horse: (Do you know?) “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me” (Philippians 4:13).

Today’s Horse Facts: Lady, My Third Horse

My second horse, Lady, wasn’t a lady at all. Find out why.

Today’s Horse Facts

Lady: My Second or Third Horse?????

Lady, My Second Horse

You probably won’t understand what I’m about to say if you are young, but when you get “older,” your memory can start to fail you. Duh! Everyone knows that. Anyway, the horse that I thought was my third horse turned out to be my second horse.

Like a dummy, I never marked the dates or the horses’ names on the back of the zillions of pictures I took of all my horses. So I’ve been plowing through all my albums, trying to sort out which horse was who and when I owned each. But I know that the horse in this picture is Lady, who was my second horse.

How do I know? Well, the picture shows a friend riding Lady, a bay grade mare.

Lady with Moon Doggie in 1971

Next to them is my husband Richard riding Moon Doggie, my first horse. So, that proved to me that Lady was my second horse. And Ginger, whom I thought was my second horse, was really my third horse. Now, are you totally confused? And, by the way, does it really matter?
Now, here’s a little bit of info about Lady, who by the way wasn’t a lady in any shape or form. She was an older horse, and you can tell by looking at her ribs sticking out in the one photo (even though I fed her tons of food). By buying an older horse, I thought I was getting a gentle down-to-earth easy rider. Well, Lady was that—kind of. As long as we rode her AWAY from the barn, she was a piece of cake.

However, as soon as we turned her around to head for the barn, look out! We needed a tight rein on her, and we never could run her going home. That little gem of info we found out the hard way.

One Saturday, hubby and I went for a short ride, maybe for an hour. I rode Moon Doggie, and hubby was on Lady. On the way home, we started to lope across a farmer’s field. We were probably a quarter of a mile from our barn.

All of a sudden, Lady took off full speed ahead and hubby couldn’t stop her. All I could see was a brown blur and him yelling, “Whoa, whoa” and yanking on the reins as hard as he could.

Do you know what we found out?

Lady had a hard mouth. You don’t want a horse with a hard mouth.

What’s a hard mouth? All the nerves in her mouth had been so damaged from bits over the years, her mouth had become totally numb to any pressure or pain. When she decided to run, she was unstoppable. What she should have had on her was a hackamore. Of course, I was still learning about horses, so I didn’t know that.

Unfortunately, Lady was so old, I think I finally sold her to the meat market, sad to say. But I’m not really sure of that. All I remember is that she was very old, and she was no fun to ride back to the barn. But, I will hand this to her. She taught me an awful lot about older, hard-mouthed horses. The next time I went horse buying, I made sure the horse behaved going away and back to the barn.

Happy riding!

Today’s Horse Facts: Meet My Very First Horse

I acquired my very first horse, Moon Doggie, quite by accident.

Feb. 5, 2016

My Very First Horse

My Very First Horse

As all child horse lovers, I dreamed about the day I would be able to have my own horse. Only after college and marriage did that dream ever come true for me.

I look back with fond memories on the many horses I owned for about a twenty-year period. I miss those days and consider my horses as lost but never-forgotten best friends.

In this social networking world in which we now live, I really enjoy visiting other horse facts blogs, whose bloggers have shared memorable moments with their equines. So I thought I’d share some of my horsie experiences from long ago. So let’s ride back in time to my very first horse.

Moon Doggie

Riding My First Horse, Moon Doggie
Moon Doggie was safe to ride bareback

Moon Doggie came to me quite by accident. My hubby and I had been married just a short time and had moved to a rural area in central PA where I started teaching third grade and he worked in the accounting department of a state-run special needs facility.

We rented an upstairs from a retired man, Bucky, who was kind enough to already being sharing his home with my widowed aunt and her teenage son. He had enough room in his big house to accommodate hubby and me, too, while we built a ranch-style home on four acres of land about a quarter of a mile away. For practically nothing, Bucky opened his home to us.

On a whim, Bucky bought a handsome pinto Welsh Pony gelding for his one granddaughter for her birthday. I say he bought it on a whim because he didn’t have a barn for the horse and neither did his granddaughter. He also had not discussed it with anyone else, least of all the granddaughter’s mother! I remember the day the horse was delivered in Bucky’s parking lot. Bucky took the horse by its bridle and twenty-foot rope and staked it out in his small yard. All he had to house the horse was his garage, which he used all the time to park his car.

When Bucky’s daughter and granddaughter came to get the “surprise” present, Bucky’s daughter was appalled. “Dad, we can’t take that horse. We have no place to keep it.”

Can’t you keep it in the garage?”

“No way,” she said. “Ken (her hubby) will never agree to giving up his garage for a horse.”

Although the granddaughter was thrilled with the horse, her heart was also broken because Bucky’s daughter insisted that the animal be returned.

Of course, yours truly, being horse crazy since I knew what a horse was, was not about to let a horse, and such a beautiful little horse just right for my size, slip through my fingers.

My hubby and I had a close friend, Bob, who lived several miles away and had built a small shed and fenced-in pasture for his son’s horse but which was unoccupied at the time. Bob agreed not only to keep the horse at his place temporarily, but he also offered to help my hubby erect a small red barn and fence in a pasture on our four acres of property where our home was being built. In about a month, the job was done, and my Moon Doggie moved into his new barn about the same time hubby and I moved into our new house.

Moon Doggie was a sweet little horse, and I can’t remember him having any bad habits other than his favorite gait being trotting, not loping. He loved apples, which he received frequently. I also can’t remember why I ever sold him other than I wanted to get a bigger horse with a smoother second gear. But today I fondly remember my first horse, who sent me on my way to own about fifteen others.

Today’s Horse Facts: Safety

Nov. 22, 2015

Today’s Horse Facts: Safety for You

and your Horse When You Hit the Trail

REX

Rex, My Favorite Horse to Ride

Nothing is more exciting for a horse facts lover than that first time when you saddle up your new horse, mount, and take off for the dusty trail. Whether you ride in a training corral at a boarding stable, on a trail through the woods, or along the side of a windy road outside of town, you need to embrace some very important safety rules so that both you and your horse enjoy the ride and come back to the barn “together” with no injuries. Let’s take a look at what you should do as you go riding off into the sunset:

Prep Time:

  1. As you tack your horse, make sure the bit is not under his tongue and the cinch is very tight. Check the cinch several times because your horse has probably learned the trick of bloating when you first tighten the cinch.  A loose saddle might send you flying through the air while the saddle slides under the horse’s barrel.
  2. If the weather is hot and “buggy,” wipe down your horse’s entire body with a strong insect repellent. Those nasty horse flies can sting both of you and ruin an otherwise nice relaxing ride. Don’t forget horsie’s ears, belly, and legs.
  3. Check your horse’s four hooves. If he has shoes on, make sure they are not impacted with manure and/or small stones.
  4. Put on your hard hat, which completes your riding outfit of jeans or riding pants and steel-toed boots. You might want to put some of that bug repellent on yourself. Flies love human skin too!

On the Ride:

  1. The best thing you could do, if possible, is go riding with a partner who has a well-trained horse. Your new horse will learn good habits from his furry mentor.
  2. Be aware at all times of distractions which can spook your horse. If you have a new horse, you should have gotten a history about him from his previous owner.  Is the horse gun shy? How is he with cars passing him on a road? How does he respond to a gate swinging open? How about water? If you don’t know the answers to these questions before you start riding, be very careful. You a treading on dangerous ground. A spooked horse can give you a ride back to the barn that you will never forget.
  3. As you ride, try to maintain a semi-relaxed state in the saddle. The horse can feel your apprehension and nervousness. If you are on the trail and you approach a patch of water or a small bridge and he balks, proceed with caution. It might be better to dismount and try to walk your horse through or around the obstacle.
  4. Don’t run your horse on macadam roads or through heavy brush. You might wind up on the ground while horsie is taking off toward the barn without you. Believe me because it happened to me when foolishly running on a street a few hundred yards from my home after a rain. I wiped out! Macadam roads are very slippery to a horse’s hooves, even if you have barium on the shoes. And low-hanging branches on trees are a sure wipeout!
  5. If the weather is hot, don’t run your horse into a lathered sweat, especially an older horse. Horses can have heat strokes, which can be deadly. My sweet Rex, who’s gone to horsie heaven a long time now, had a heat stroke one hot July afternoon, and I wasn’t riding him. He was just standing in my small corral and collapsed. Fortunately, I was able to get in touch with my vet, who told me to get Rex on his feet, walk him, get him to the salt block, and wipe him down. Rex lived a few more years after that and never had a heat stroke again. But that one time scared the wits out of me.
  6. On your way home from your ride, never release the reins to allow your horse to have his full head. Are you crazy? At any moment, a squawking bird, a loud backfire, or a slamming door could spook horsie, and you’ll be dumped on your rump!

Barn Time:

  1. When dismounting at the barn, give your horse a big hug and kiss. Horses respond to affection of all kinds from their owners. A few sugar cubes or slices of apple will seal the affection between you two forever.
  2. Untack your horse, air the blanket to allow the horse’s sweat to dry, and clean the slobbery bit before storing in the tack room.
  3. Do not allow him to drink water or eat grain if he is lathered and puffing. (Founder!)
  4. Walk your horse for at least 15 minutes to cool him down. Even in cold weather, the horse will work up a sweat. In fact, cold weather is as dangerous as hot weather. If horsie gets a chill, he could develop pneumonia. After a hard ride, he should be walked, groomed, and then blanketed for several hours. He can have water and grain after he has cooled down.
  5. Clean his hooves.
  6. Kiss him again and either release him into the pasture or lock him in his stall for a nice well-deserved nap.

Now, there you have the basics about caring for your horse as you ride him. Horses are powerful animals, but they respond to love, affection, and training with the proper attitude and equipment. If you want a happy horse, treat him with the respect he deserves.

Today’s Horse Facts: Caring for your Horse

Do you have all it takes to care for an animal as big as a horse?

Today’s Horse Facts: Caring for your Horse

REX

 

You just bought a new horse, perhaps your very first one, and you’re ready to ride down the dusty trail with your new equine friend. Is that exciting, or what?

But have you put a lot of forethought into preparing for that horse’s safe keeping and welfare? Are you going to board him at a reputable stable, or have you put the time and money into your own place to care for Trigger yourself? By this time, you should have already realized that keeping a horse is very expensive. He’s not just a new puppy on the block.

Let’s see how you do on this MUST HAVE list to keep your horse and new best friend healthy and happy. Answer the next 10 points either “Yes I have” or “Nope, not yet,” and we’ll see if you’re a horse owner who has the best interest of your horse at heart:

  1. I have at least a one-stall barn or shed (not a garage) that will protect the horse from bad weather and give him a nice place to snooze.
  2. I have at least two acres of pasture land for my horse to graze.
  3. I have erected a fence that is safe so that my horse won’t get caught in barbed wire, try to jump through or over it, or get his legs or head caught between rails.
  4. I have bought enough quality hay and oats (grain or sweet feed) for two meals a day for a month. I have a regular supplier of feed for my horse.
  5. I have means of providing fresh water (at least two large bucketsful) every day for my horse.
  6. I have purchased grooming equipment to use on my horse daily. The equipment includes bug juice (for stinging flies in hot weather), a comb, brush, electric razor, oil, horse pick, hydrogen peroxide (for the frogs of his hooves to prevent thrush), and bot killer. I also have a rake, shovel, and wheelbarrow to “muck out” the stall every day, and I’ve made arrangements to have the manure pile removed from my property regularly. (Heaped manure is a breeding ground for bugs and worms, which can infest your horse and make him sick or kill him.)
  7. I have purchased riding tack that fits the horse as well as me. I’ve gotten information from his previous owner concerning the type of bit with which the horse performs best.
  8. I have purchased a blanket (if I live in seasonal cold climates) and have determined to make sure my horse is kept in his barn and warm during frigid weather.
  9. I have called a veterinarian and a farrier to schedule regular appointments for check-ups, shots, hoof trims, and shoeing.

10.  I have promised my horse and myself that I will ride him at least twice a week, weather permitting and will always walk him to cool him down after the ride so he doesn’t get chilled and possibly get pneumonia.

Well, how did you do on this quiz? Are you ready to care for your own horse that will make him a happy camper at your pad?  Will Trigger love you forever because you’ve already lavished your love upon him?

If not, then determine today to fulfill all these conditions and you’ll be known as a horse owner who really cares for his/her horse.

Today’s Horse Facts: Buying the Right Horse

Buying a horse? Know the “tricks of the trade” before going horse shopping or you might get stuck with an unmanageable horse.

Buying the Right Horse for You

Coke.HeadShot

Coke, one of the sweetest horses I ever owned

If you’re an equine beginner or you’ve been away from horses for years and want to get back in the saddle, how are you going to find the right horse? What horse facts do you need?

The worst scenario for any horse lover is to go to a public auction and bid on a horse that “looks good and rides good.” Sure, the horse might look good and ride good—for 45 seconds when he’s on display. But what’s he like when you get him home and try to get on his back? You might be heading for a wild ride or large vet bills with “hidden costs” of which you knew nothing.

The best way to find yourself a good horse is to look for sales by reputable horse breeders. However, you might find yourself a good horse by scanning the newspaper FOR SALE ads. I bought several horses this way and learned what to do and what not to do.

Whichever way you go, there are several things you MUST do to assure yourself of a safe and healthy mount. Have an experienced horseman and a veterinarian look over your potential purchase. Make sure the hooves are in good condition and that you can pick up the horse’s feet horse shoewith no problem. Thrush is such a pain in the neck to you and a potential problem that can permanently lame your horse if you don’t clean his hooves regularly. If the horse won’t let you pick up his feet, you’re headed for big trouble. That manure he constantly stands in will eventually take its toll on the frogs of his feet, rotting them and causing you big vet bills and an unridable horse if he’s not cared for properly.

After you find a potential equine friend, walk away from him. In other words, don’t buy the horse the first time you see him. He might have a cute face with Bambi eyes, but behind that sweet little face might be a holy terror. Make sure you ride him several times in different settings: in a corral, in the pasture, in open spaces, and along the road. A horse that’s calm in a corral might go bonkers if he is on a road and a car goes whizzing by.

Another extremely important point to ponder is whether mild-mannered horsie loads and unloads easily on a trailer. A smart thing to do horse trailer 1before you sign the bottom line is ask the owner to demonstrate. If he objects, walk away from the deal. It’s probably not a good one.

Of vital importance is how the horse allows you to tack him and mount him. If he sidesteps or fights the bit or bites you, you’re in for big trouble before you even get on his back. Make sure YOU are the one tacking him, not his previous owner. If you want to build a relationship with a new horse, there’s no better place to start than when you try to slip that bit into his mouth.

Does it matter what kind of horse you buy? How about the color? The breed? It only matters if you’re looking for a particular horse to do a particular task. You wouldn’t buy a Shire to saddle and ride, and you wouldn’t buy a Belgian for dressage. Learn your breeds.

I remember the time I was looking for a horse for trail riding. My prospective horse was expected to do nothing more than give me an hour or two of pleasure a few times a week as we would ride down the dusty trail or through the woods.

I found this absolutely beautiful black Morgan through a newspaper ad. I went to the owner’s place to check out the horse, who was stunning in appearance, and my mouth started to water, picturing him in my little red barn at home.

Well, when I arrived, the horse had already been tacked and stood waiting for me to mount. Ahem. I grabbed the reins and, as I attempted to slip my foot into the stirrup, the horse sidestepped away—again and again and again. Guess what? I never was able to get on the horse. Then I wondered what other quirks the little rascal had that I missed while he was being tacked!

Ask me if I bought him.
