ALL OF MY HORSES 2019! // Versatile Horsemanship

November 19, 2019


in today’s video I’m gonna introduce you
to my entire herd of horses if you’re new here my name is brandi and this
channel is all about horses and my journey with horsemanship so if you want
to learn more about horses and follow my journey you can start by hitting that
subscribe button and be sure to turn on all notifications so you never miss a
video okay let’s go meet everybody Petra is a quarter horse mare and I’ve had her
since she was four and she was my personal horse until this year she
started doing lessons back in June so she is now a lesson horse petrus eight
years old what oh my goodness and she she really is a love she’s very very
sweet and everybody just loves her Petra has what’s called PS sm it stands for
polysaccharide storage myopathy and it’s a genetic muscle disease okay and this
little sweetheart here this is muffin and pretty much everybody knows muffin
muffin is 19 and I’ve had her for I think 10 years but she is one of my most
popular lesson horses pretty much anybody and everybody rides her muffin
is super athletic she can jump three foot – she barrel races she you name it
this pony does it and she’s just plain awesome the thing I like about her is
she’s big enough so I can ride her – muffin is her mom was a Welsh pony and
her dad was a quarter horse he was actually a Rainer and muffin was
definitely an oops the stallion got out got in with the mayor and you know
there’s muffin so but we absolutely adore her and muffin has quite the story
behind her – most of my horses have a story I can’t say that I have ever just
gone out and picked out horses for myself all of my horse is kind of fine
to me so a muffin was a client’s horse that just kind of came along and I’ll
have to do a story about her too because it’s actually pretty interesting
everybody always says is that Nocona stabi no that is dayz and dayz is my
miniature horse this is Nocona this is Nicola
Nocona is one of my personal horses she’s in a lot of my videos and she is
one of my favorites to ride Nocona is pretty darn awesome she’s an Appaloosa
and if you know who Danny the horse girl is Nocona was bred and raised on her
farm and I’ve had her since she was 2 this little cutie pie this is Daisy and
she adorable Daisy rides and drives and I’ve had her
since 2011 so and I think she was 3 when I got her
Daisy adds a lot of attitude and fast to the herd right Ava treat in my pocket
they all know it this is Nelly Nelly is my rescue mayor and she just came down
and I just kind of ended up with her that’s just kind of how it happens
so Nelly has been a lot of fun to work with and she is now one of the favorite
lesson horses that I have and she’s come a long way I have a lot of stories to
tell about Nelly she was pretty naughty when I first got her so Nelly is
probably right around 15 we think she’s a quarter horse and we don’t have papers
or anything for her so I’d love to know about her her breeding and such I’d love
to know what she actually is I’m guessing there’s a little thoroughbred
in there somewhere she just kind of has that look to me this is Annabelle and
Annabelle is Annabelle’s one that just kind of fell into my lap as well
basically a friend of mine called me and said I have this horse that’s been
abandoned at my place and I think that she’d be great for your lesson program
so I went and looked at her and ended up bringing her home so and she’s really
been a great she’s really been a great addition to my lesson program
Annabelle’s super fun she’s probably one of my favorite horses to ride she’s
really sensitive she’s really kind of quirky and she’s sorta she’s just a
weird horse but I really like her and she’s really fun I would love to know
more about her history we’re really not sure on how old she is or anything we’re
guessing probably around 12 I think but she’s she’s definitely
a great great teacher so I adore her now this one here this is my personal
horse this is the awesome miss blossom I have a couple of my lessons that I’ve
filmed and there’s another one coming up soon but blossom is great she’s a really
really fun horse to ride and she’s another one that just kind of ended up
here she was boarded here and came up for
sale and I just liked her so she got to stay bear is my daughter’s pony and I
have a really fun quick story about beer I started him as a three year old and I
had no idea actually how big he was when he came to me for training until I went
out to see him so he just kind of came to the barn that I was working at and so
I’m like he’s all of 450 pounds how am I gonna ride him so I started him bareback
I had had him for 30 days and I got him going bareback and I got him to the
point where a couple of my students could ride him and he was just such a
who’s such a good little guy I liked him so much so I told the owners said if you
ever decide to sell him please let me know because I would absolutely love to
have him so several years later they contacted me and I was in the hospital
toefl was just born the day before my daughter was just born and they said
we’ve decided to sell Bear and would really love for you to buy him because
he’d be great for your program and so I told him I said you know I have so much
going on my older horse poco was not doing well and I just had a baby and
it’s so much happening that I couldn’t take him at the time and they said you
know what we will hold on to him as long as you need to to take him even if it’s
even if it’s a year we’ll hold on to him and so that’s what I did a year later
and went picked him up towba was a year old and her pony came home and it was
just kind of meant to be so it’s two boys we’re gonna fight so yeah it’s just
that’s just kind of how it works sometimes and I love that
absolutely love that my horses have all found me in some way shape or form
now this little guy this is lucky and lucky isn’t very lucky because he only
has one eye you see this missin and I so and that happened years ago in a pasture
accident so lucky has been part of my program for I think I’ve had him for two
years now and he’s been a really good addition to my program he’s a Welsh pony
oh lucky is a Welsh pony and he is I don’t know he’s in his upper teens maybe
18 or so he is such a stinker man if anybody’s gonna cause any problems in
the pasture it’s Daisy so and I think I forgot to mention that blossom is a
quarter horse she registered quarter horse Annabelle
we really don’t know what she is um I’m assuming there’s paint in there but
she’s pretty little she’s only maybe 14 hands even so lucky is a lesson pony
he’s really good he’s a really good teacher for kids so he’s um he doesn’t
put up with anything and he he dishes out a lot so nice so now this is Little
Miss Rosie Rosie had some pretty major issues back in January so I’ll I’ll post
her link above to her playlist cuz it’s really interesting very educational all
the things that Rosie had to go through and I’m really hoping that by sharing
her story it can help kind of it can help educate others on what symptoms to
look for for certain things so check that out
I know Kona hello this is ona ona is a three-year-old quarter horse she’s a
buckskin and she came from the Fralick ranch in North Dakota so ona is I need
to get working on her and I have so much to share about this horse and she just
really really really needs a lot of my time that I don’t really have but I’ve
got some fun videos coming up soon of her and some of the things that we did
over the summer to share with you so stay tuned and you’ll see
about this lovely little mayor this is cinnamon and cinnamon is a 10 year old
paint mare I bought her from one of my students it’s kind of the same sort of
thing as like blossom she was just here I really liked her and she’s a really
great lesson horse really nice mare she’s been a great addition to my
program so she is definitely a favorite among a lot of my students and she’s
just a fun fun horse to have have at the farm let’s see if we can go see Sally
she’s afraid so I want you to I want to show you kind of what Sally’s like now
since I have I have a selfie stick my phone is attached to a selfie stick and
so Sally’s afraid of that but that’s how she is thing so this is Sally and
Sally’s not actually mine but I’m pretty sure that Sally has decided that I have
her human I don’t have much experience with mules but the thing that I have
found with them is oh my gosh they are so incredibly loyal so she is just kind
of like super attached to me and a year ago I could not I could not even touch
this animal so she’s kind of quirky but I love that about her mini horse
shenanigans going on here see that little one she likes to tell the others
she likes to give them the what for man she is stinker if you want to learn a little bit more
about Sally for right now though I’ll post a link above that’ll take you to
take you to one of her videos okay who else do we need to meet let’s see I have now if you’ve been following my channel
for any length of time there’s a good chance that you’ve met this little guy
this is Mainzer and i’m sure i don’t have to tell a lot of you that but
Mainzer is now out with the herd and he is six months old today is November 17th
so he just turned six months last week and he loves being with all the other
horses he’s very social and him and bear play and play and play now if you want
to know more about him I will post a link to his journey above really really
awesome awesome videos to watch about from the daily bread nikka this is his
mom all the way to current so if you want to follow his journey make sure to
click on that link it’s like but he’s had such an interesting life so far it’s
really fun for me even to go back and watch those videos because it’s just
been it’s just been such a learning experience for me
Mainzer is our first foal he is just a little delight now you know he’s out
with the herd and doing well and I’ll be sure to share the rest of his journey
with you so stay tuned because there’s a lot more videos coming about Mainzer to
lead up to this point oh my goodness if you’ve been following man’s journey you
also know a lot about Nika and know that she is just an absolutely amazing
amazing horse okay so Nika is 19 and we’ve had her
since she was a yearling and she was actually born on this farm before we
owned it so that’s kind of a fun fact I’m going to take you over and
show you the final member of the herd who has for some reason decided that she
needs to just go and hang out by herself and tell me what your favorite horse is
out of my entire herd and tell me what you want to know about them I will post
videos about each horse my goal is to eventually have a playlist for every
horse so you can kind of see more about them and really get to know that last
horse for today and if you’ve watched my videos recently you have seen that Miss
Kitty had a choking incident she has her own playlist so you can see some things
that have been going on with her recently
but this gal is 26 years old and let me see I don’t think I hit I might have a
little treat crumb in my pocket she’s 26 years old and we have had her she was
born at my parents farm I’m actually the very first person that ever got to see
her Miss Kitty is actually the very last
animal from my childhood so it’s kind of a hard hard thing to think about it’s
really hard to say goodbye to those animals that have been there like your
whole life so Miss Kitty’s one of them I was 13 when she was born so it’s kind of
crazy to think about how long she’s been with me so but she’s a good girl she’s a
really good girl she still does lessons and she’s um it’s good for her to keep
active you know there’s kind of saying you use it or you lose it so you got to
use those muscles you got to use those joints keep him moving as long as
possible because you know they don’t work so good if you quit using him so
she’s she’s a great lesson horse and we try to keep just little ones on her now
but Kitty okay it’s getting dark so that’s it for today I hope you enjoyed
this video thanks so much for watching see you in the next one bye

  1. Which horse was your favorite and what would you like to know about them?

    Here are some more videos that you might enjoy https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLIR-JJucLqwKJW32kFTZhWCeD20SwF6ev

  2. Little ponies with the Napoleon complex. Lol. I would think you will be weaning Manzer soon, no? He is getting pretty big now. I like manzer’s mama, I think, but I like blossom too. Hard because I like the big horses, since I used to show jumpers. But I guess those two would be my favs.

  3. Loved spending time with your herd. It's entertaining to see them interact with each other and to hear about some of their background. Also nice to see Manzer and Mom join the others.

  4. Love the new video of your heard. Blossom was my favorite. Manzer looks amazing 😍 what a sweetie. Thanks for sharing.

  5. I dont have any horses but I have always loved the beauty of the Appaloosa, if I had the money I would buy an Appaloosa.

  6. Ha ha meet this little guy where ,Manzer is so big now 🤣 but to you he will always be little ..( don't take wrong way please, it just tickled me when you said that and he walked up ).Beautiful herd cannot pick just one favorite .. want to know about them all and I just love how each one is loving to you. And they picked you so awesome! 😊❤❤

  7. Loved this video ! So Nice meeting & knowing more about them – Miss Kitty is looking Great – Lol – Little miss Stinker Daisy ! Sometimes You have to be tuff when your Tiny – Love seeing them all together in the pastures – they sure have a wonderful life with you 💗 Awww – so glad Manzer can hang out with the whole crew now – He's my Favorite

  8. Lovely herd they all look so well taken care of 🙂 So I am curious about your plans with weaning Manzer now that he is 6 months old and out with the rest of the herd? 🙂

  9. It's so lovely to see all of your horses and ponies they are all beautiful. I have a cat called Muffin, most of my cats are strays that have just turned up on my doorstep, two of them were feral. It took eight years before they would let me stroke them. x

  10. I really like all your horse's. and mule Manzer getting so big pretty soon he gonna be big as mom in 6 months how fast they grow it's amazing 🐴

  11. Love them all! I'm an Appaloosa girl so nacona is the one if I had to choose…Glad I don't have to. Manzerr is so big and handsome! I can't wait to see him at like two or three. Little tank!!

  12. I'm new to this channel, and I absolutely love it! I've loved horses ever since I was little. I got my first horse a few months ago. Her name is Timber. She a little Tennessee walking horse. At first I we didn't click well, but now she is my best friend. I don't ride her much but we sure do enjoy walks. I enjoy your videos, happy trails

    I love all your horses! , Manzer is my favorite

    (She is my profile picture)

  13. Love them all, but I think Manzer is my favorite, followed closely by Miss Kitty & Blossom. Do either Miss Kitty or Blossom have any Arabian in them? Something about the pretty head & eyes on both of them. Thank you once again for sharing your beautiful horses & their stories with all of us!

  14. Wonderful video, loved meeting everyone. Oh my, picking a favorite is hard but I think maybe Sally because of her spirit. Of course Manzer is a cut above all. He is growing so fast, and is Mr. Personality. Glad to see him out with the clan. 😀

  15. What a great herd 👍 your rescues have been very lucky. Sometimes it happens that destiny brings animals into your life. I like them all. They are so various in breeds, colors and personalities.😍 Each one is attractive and seems so friendly. Sally the mule is quite cute. With time her fear'll disappear I think. Maybe she is just shy. A good way for Manzer to learn horse's etiquette by joining the herd 😀 do they always live all together outside ? You have snow in Michigan. 🌨️🌡️

  16. Such sweetheart horses❤️😁love Sally's snort… so cute. Manzer. getting so big! Where is Ms Kitty?oh there she is…. looking good Ms Kitty❤️❤️she doesn't look that old. A vet told me that when an animal lives a long time….. it's a testament to your love she's had😁

  17. Is anyone else looking at that hay and thinking "YUM!" The pasture looks like a fancy salad bar, LOL! The horses are adorable and so happy and fuzzy!

  18. Yes please make a play list for them all. I would love to know all about them. Just love them all. They are all beautiful.

  19. Love the video. Im really looking forward to hearing all the horses "stories". Please, please, please include pictures and any videos you might have of them when they were young. I know you got several when they were adults, but any baby or young adult pictures or videos would be fun to see. FAVORITE HORSE TO WATCH … DAISY !! Love her sass. 😈 I enjoyed watching the video of your families trail ride this summer. Rosie & Dasiy were soooooo small but seemed the perfect size for your kids to ride. 👍👍👍

  20. You know i love manzer ❤️❤️ I had 2 welsh cobs year's ago gipsy and prince both bay's..I love all your horses ❤️🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿🇬🇧

  21. Long time ago, when I was in my 20's I looked after 33 horses, and 15 of them were trail horses as I was a lead trail guide and for all the trail horses & borders I fed them, clean their stalls and grooming. I took them to the fields as well called them to the barn. I would have a cat on my shoulders and the radio on while raking the dirt barn floor. This video remind me of when I was in the field to call the horses go to the barn.

  22. Hi Brandi.
    Family.

    Meanwhile the horses and mule are having a meeting… Mom
    Does another YT Video AGAIN.

    My favorite: Manzer and Nika.

    🤔🤣❤🤗

  23. Its really hard to pick which of your horses is my favorite! You have so many wonderful personalities. I forgot their names already forgive me 🙁 I am definitely interested in your buckskin mare, and your appaloosa mare is absolutely stunning. I'd also like to know more about your one-eyed boy, I love his facial markings!

  24. All your horses are lovely but Manzer would have to be my favourite, just watching him grow from a new born has been so special.

  25. I think for me, it will always be Manzer. Look at that clacking he’s doing. So cute. He started out with some teeny issues like wobbly crooked legs and a long uncontrollable tongue, a more worrisome issue with his very sore neck, but the sweetest temperament and most beautiful looks like his mom. He’s got me stuck to this channel lol. (Among other great reasons).

  26. Lol the design on your hat looks like you got clocked in the head with a snowball. I couldn't stop giggling. The horses are gorgeous!!
    Edit: Daisy is the cutest chonky I've ever seen 😍😩

  27. Remember watching your other "Meet my Animals" vid. So much has changed! Couple new editions to the herd 😀 what happened to Toughy and Trigger though? 😮

  28. I'm a sucker for Paints, Appaloosas, or any multi-color horses. But regardless of that, they are all so beautiful. Can't wait to see what you share next!

  29. Love your herd, and Manzer's a big boy now!! I noticed him clacking his teeth in submission to a horse while you were talking. 😀 So cool, their behavior. Makes you feel great when your horses follow and want to be near you…. That's the bond we all thrive on. You're a good horse mom making each one feel special. I've only had 3 over the years, (2 Morgans, 1 Quarter Horse), and now down to my QH, Star. So many times I'd spend out in the paddock just sitting silently and they'd all stop what they were doing and walk directly up for nuzzles. Thanks for sharing another great video!! 🙂

  30. Omg 😍 I love them all! Pick a favorite you say…. can't do it! They're all so special in their on way! What a wonderful way to wrap a Monday!

  31. How awesome to have all those horses and a mule……love lil Manser…I’d have to say he’s my fave…..❤️

  32. I like Muffin and Bear the best. What is it with the little ones it seems like the smaller they are the sassier they are.

  33. I loved your horsey tour! Besides Manzer, my favorite of your herd is Petra, the quarter horse with PSSM. I'd give her a low sugar Nicker Treat had I'd been there with you. The beautiful Petra was moving quite well and looked very relaxed and cuddly… (Note: I visited the UP this summer and I love your state parks… Tahquamenon Falls, Kitch-iti-kipi Spring in Manistique, and also stayed at Big Bay Point Lighthouse B&B by Marquette on Lake Superior, which I realized later, is somewhat near your place!)

  34. So nice to meet all your beautiful horses and hear a bit about them. I’ve heard that minis have a lot of attitude! Napoleon complex maybe? Before you said Sally was a mule I saw those larger ears and wondered. What a sweet face she has! Manzer is the Prince among the aunties. A favorite? Couldn’t possibly pick, I love them all.

  35. All have their own personalities and are so special. I do have to say Petra is the sweetest. Of course Manzer and Nikka won my heart ❤️ a while back. Would luv to see more on all of them. Thank you for sharing.

  36. I can't decide on a favorite but this was a wonderful video! Do people tell you that you look like Julia Roberts? Have a nice night!
    Laural

  37. Oh I love love love love your Appaloosa and of course manzer is looking all better.. great video thank you for sharing

  38. Miss kitty is my favorite, and manzer n your little stinker daisy r wonderful. Manzer is turning into a gorgeous young horse. And daisy she is so full of herself. You have a beautiful herd, and am so happy that you have a great program going with your lessons. The kids are very lucky to have you for a instructor. It seems they have a lot of fun with their schooling of horses. Keep up the great work.!

  39. I have to say Just by Looks alone Miss Kitty is GORGEOUS..she might be my favorite. But of course my Heart belongs to Manzer and Nika. Sally has caught my attention by this video alone. But what a GORGEOUS herd you have. How could a person pick just one? I love them all!

  40. Thanks for introducing your beautiful herd! They are each unique and I would struggle to choose a favorite. They sure do adore you ♥️🐴♥️

  41. Gorgeous herd Bradi! I love them all, I can’t just pick one. But if I had to it would be Nika. She reminds me of my mare, sweet & loving.

  42. It was fun to meet all the herd out in a field eating. I am especially drawn to the Appaloosa with so many spots. I’m partial to buckskins and yours is very pretty. I’m glad Manzer is doing great.

  43. Everyone is looking nice and fuzzy – ready for winter! And Manzer has become such a sturdy little fellow, he’s the very picture of health now. Lovely herd, something for everyone, so to speak 🙂

  44. I am so glad to see Manzer out with the herd! I am surprised that Mika is 19! What is the average lifespan of a horse? I’m so glad they are all doing so well! You take good care of them!

  45. I think Daisy is just a little feisty chick and I love that!! Nikona looks like she’s very lovable and sweet. And of course Manzer, he’s just the sweetest little love bug. He’s so funny too. It’s so hilarious when his tongue goes rogue on him and acts like it’s trying to escape from his mouth. Lol.

  46. This was a fun video. I loved being introduced to all your horses. We see most of them in passing but it was nice to see them up close. How cute is the mule Sally! I LOVE mules. They are usually whacky and very serious. Unless they aren't LOL! My favorite is Blossom because she's just like Bonnie in color and facial structure. Never put a saddle on her, just a blanket and never a bit. She rode gentle but strong. How is Blossom to ride? And what's her favorite treat? Apples maybe?🍎💜

  47. No roans or blacks, better keep collecting. lol       With my horses, I've raised all of them but one, and she is the one I ride the most because she had so many hang ups that no one else waned to ride her.  Those little mini's are full of attitude , my Dad has an oops horse that is a 1/4x mini that thinks he is top dog.
