Princess our Pony

Updated on April 8, 2016

And here she is!

A tribute to our little Chocolate Palomino Pony named Princess.

She was the second equine we owned, actually given to us by the Ranch owners. Little Princess taught our daughters everything about Horses and Ponies, the good and the bad...and trust me, the bad came from the pony, she was ornery as most ponies are...but she also had a sweet, gentle and loving way.

Moving her halfway across the country with all our other horses, she had a great life until our last move, that's when she disappeared...

Now for the rest of the story...

I'm known for my Equine Art

and my love for horses and other animals

For many years I have painted equine images, actually all my life...and bred Arabian horses for many years.

Our daughters as well were involved in horses, 4-H and Arabian shows in California and Missouri.

We received Princess as a gift

from the Ranch owners

In 1976 my mother passed away, she left me an envelope with some money and instructions to get back into horses.

Our first horse was given to us by my husband's boss in California, and after that we were given the Pony by the Ranch owners where I kept our horse. The owners were so impressed by our daughters (9 and 6 years old) way of handling horses...they thought the pony would be great addition for them.

Our horse named Patches was given to our oldest daughter, and Princess the pony to our youngest daughter...interestingly enough, the girls personalities matched with each animals personalities.

The girls joined 4-H and I became a leader, so the horse venture together started...

I already had an established Equine Art business, allowing us to enjoyed events that involved horses and art.

Princess turned out to be quite a challenge, she was a typical pony with an attitude. I called it the "Napoleon complex"...so you know where I'm going with this. However this attitude was a great learning tool for both our daughters. Both girls amazed me with their abilities, I really had no idea this could not be done by a child that young. I suppose when one doesn't know any different and doesn't have any fear, horses and ponies pick up on that.

The girls were not allowed to ride with a saddle till they could ride bareback and stay on, then they got the saddle...Many times Princess came home from a trail ride, riderless...with my daughter in tow calling her, "that stupid Pony"

As a 4-H leader the most important thing I taught, was safety around horses. This was the first and foremost important thing before allowing any of the kids to do anything around me with their horses...indeed a great responsibility and liability for a leader.

Princess' story is included in this book - "Beloved Horses From Around the World"

Beloved Horses From Around the World (Beloved Horses series Book 5)
Beloved Horses From Around the World (Beloved Horses series Book 5)

This book written by Sharon Miner is Spotlighted because our dear Princess is included with her story. She is memorialized in this book, and I will never forget her...she was a dear pet, went through a lot and gave a great deal to us...allowing our daughters to learn everything about Horses and Ponies.

 

1977 the Beginning-

How did Princess get her name?

the idea of a child thinking the Pony was one...

My daughter read this and reminded me that Princess did not have this name when we received her, she was called Stardust. The girls decided to give her the new name of Princess...although it did not fit her personality at the times, she did respond to it when called, and that was a good thing because the arena was one acre in size, a hard place to catch a pony or a horse.

I knew little about her, she was used and shown years before by the Ranch owners, after that she really did nothing but eat in a stall for several years...it was apparent by her big belly.

We were pleased with the name Princess, although under my breath (and maybe my daughters) she was called many other not so nice names. Yes, Princess turned out to be a Princess, she taught my daughters so much...so for that, we gladly called her Princess.

Oh I love this FurReal-Friend...A Palomino Pony named Butterscotch with many accessories to add...a saddle, bridle, leg wraps, carrots etc...what a fun toy to have!

There's also a Black and White Pony named Butterscotch S'Mores on Amazon...what fun toys!

This toy would have been my daughters favorite thing - A Palomino Pony named Butterscotch

So, you could have a Pony just like Princess and not have to worry about feeding cleaning and all the work that goes with having a Pony...yes maybe not real, but so close to it!

Our favorite thing to do with Princess...

was taking her to 4-H shows

One of our favorite things to do with Princess was taking her to shows and parades, she was good about getting into a trailer and adjusted well in different places.

Below you will see her first show and some of the other 4-H shows that qualified our daughter to Alameda County Fair, Pleasanton, Calif... winning fifth place over many kids with big horses from all over the state, and being the only Pony in the class and the youngest participant...she also won first place in two western classes receiving a Bronze Level and earning a Belt Buckle.

Princess went missing

actually given away without consent

We moved to Missouri in 1983, bringing with us Princess and our Horses. Our new Ranch had a building that housed a boat and some other items, this was a good place for our hay and grain storage. We bumped out a side wall and added a 8 stall barn, making this building into a T-form...designed by me to my liking, with lots of skylights and storage.

Princess was boss of the herd, she was in heaven...unfortunately we only lived there for five years, needless to say leaving behind my dream barn and land was heartbreaking.

In 1988 when we moved to Wisconsin I could not envision bringing all these horses with us again, I sold most and leased out some of the mares...as for Princess, I wanted to wait till I had a place for her. As it stood at that time, I brought Ibn who was then a Stallion and a two year old filly with us.

I found a lady in Missouri who already had a couple of ponies, she said, she'd take Princess till I decided to bring her to Wisconsin. Once I got to Wisconsin I did not hear from her, and after many phone calls, I found out she "GAVE my pony away" I called her and told her that she could not do that, we had a contract and she was to keep Princess until I got situated and a place to keep her. She mentioned that her ponies did not get along and had to get rid of her, then assuring me that she was in good home...but that was also a lie. Because she would not tell me who she gave Princess to, I did some detective work from rumors I heard. This prompted me to sent out fliers to tack and feed stores in her area, included information and pictures of Princess.

I threatened to sue her, because now it was horse theft. She finally told me where she was. My eldest daughter and her husband went the place Princess was, with a horse trailer to retrieve her. It turns out this place was a shabby trailer DUMP. Princess was out in a small dried paddock with barbwire and steel polls, her halter had been left on and was too tight, she was skinny and had no access to food or water.

My daughter and son-in-law actually butt roped and pulled Princess into the trailer because she was so frightened. The people that had her, claimed she was given to them, this may have been the case, however not legally...My daughter informed them... "just call my mom's lawyer!"

Because Princess was left out on pasture grass and no hay or water, she again foundered. She was prone to founder because she once was exposed to walnut shavings.

My dear daughter took care of her in a new facility near where she lived. Unfortunately the founder got worse and she could no longer stand. Princess was put to sleep while I was in the Hospital for my cancer surgery. I found out when I got home, my poor distraught daughter had to tell me, but the consolation was that at least I knew that Princess had been in good hands, a place with good feed and plenty of water, and especially lots of love.

Princess and my daughter

a wonderful memory...

I was working with watercolors and decided to do this painting...you will recognize it from one of the photos listed here.

This painting had been accepted in many art shows and received a second place at the MHF art show...a memory captured with a great story of real happiness.

If you go to my Miniature-ACEO art you will see a series of Pony paintings, using Princess as my model and muse...a series: ponies in different colors.

It's been a joy to use my animals as muses, especially my horses for 34 years. I can't begin to tell you how much I miss my horses, it still hurts to think about them not being here. Having a pet or animal for 29 years is a long time and part of the family...

The book; Our First Pony - by Marguerite Henry, illustrated by Rich Rudish

Our First Pony
Our First Pony

Joseph and Justin may be twins, but they sure aren't much alike. Besides looking different, they live in very different worlds. Joseph loves the outdoors, the sky and the land, and all the animals, Justin, on the other hand, would rather be indoors, playing his piccolo or reading a book. The only thing they have in common is Midge, a pinto Shetland pony. They give her all the love and attention any pony could ever ask for. And she ends up giving them more than they ever could have imagined -- a horse family of their own!

With characteristic charm and simplicity, Marguerite Henry weaves a true-to-life tale about the joys and difficulties of owning and raising horses.

      Princess had a life full of love. I'm always angered by people who abuse animals and ignore people who are anxious to care for them. It was nice to see your photos of Pleasanton and the Alameda County Fair, which I never missed when I lived in that area.

      I love your lens! I too love horses. They are majestic and spiritual. To me there is no animal on earth that can stand against the beauty of a horse. I grew up and had a lil paint pony, her name was Star. And I hadn't owned a horse since until last year. My dad got me a horse. And it was a very happy moment for me. I'm sorry for your loss but the sheer memory and inspiration from Princess is amazing! Beautiful work. Thank you for sharing. :)

What an awful person to have given away your pony without even letting you know. While most of our animals can be trusted some humans can't.

      Really well done lens. We really get to know Princess through this lens. And while you're supposed to forgive others, I don't even know that silly woman who gave Princess away but there is no way I could ever get over someone doing something like that. How she or the people who took Princess could do that is beyond my imagination. Thank goodness, though, you and your family were able to rescue Princess so she could spend her remaining days in the comfort and care of her true family.
