I will participate! :)  

1.) Would you prefer a gift for your home, yourself, or your horse/pets?  Prefer probably a gifts for horse, or pets, but am happy with anything. I do really like to read, so good books, especially self help books, will always be appreciated. 

2.) Please list your favorite (1) Horse's name, age, sizing, color you prefer them to wear, etc.    My "favorite" horse is Jett (Tommy Top Gun), 8 y/o grey AQHA gelding, he's a medium in almost everything...he looks good in almost any color, but I love orange and/or turquoise on him.

3.) Please list your pets and other horses names, age,color they look best in etc. here.  I have a mini/toy aussie named Quigley, he's a blue merle and almost 2 y/o. I also have a yearling gelding coming home, he's sorrel, but don't have any definite colors yet. His AQHA registered name is PA Otto Smoke Em, and I think his barn name will be Whizbang. My other animals are in transition currently. 

4.) Describe your home decor if you would prefer a gift for the home.   Ooh, I don't know. 

5.) Describe a clothing item you have been eyeing but cannot bring yourself to purchase for yourself. (Feel free to PM BHW_SECRET_SANTA your size if you are not comfortable posting it here.)   Can't really think of anything off the top of my head. I do love hooded sweatshirts, and I'm a small or medium.

6.) Do you have children? Tell us a little bit about them.  So far only kids are my animals. 

7.) List your top 3 favorite brands for grooming tools, blankets, and other small gear. I don't have any favorites...I guess maybe Classic Equine.

8.) List your top 3 favorite brands for treats for your horse, dog, or other pets.  My animals don't get a lot of treats.

9.) List 3 things you DO NOT want, or have excess of. (Body brushes, curry combs, treats, boots, etc.)   haha, is that possible? :P

10.) List 3 things you need right now for your barn. ( Buckets, hoofpicks, leads, halters, grooming supplies, treats etc.)   I can always use more leads and more one piece reins with snap ends for quick change. 

I love any and everything! I'm really trying to get my equine starting and barrel training/lessons/horse business off the ground besides my full time job. I love coffee and chocolate (not necessarily together, LOL). I'm looking at getting a new futurity colt. I can use any advice on time management out there. I love to read when I have the time. The best gift would be at least 2 extra daylight hours in the day (just kidding, I know that's not possible, LOL).

  1. Would you prefer a gift for your home, yourself, or your horse/pets? Either/Any!


  2. 2.) Please list your favorite (1) Horse's name, age, sizing, color you prefer them to wear, etc. 
Bullys Easyonthe Eyes aka Blue
Sorrel Paint
Size medium
He looks handsome in any color!

3.) Please list your pets and other horses names, age,color they look best in etc. here. 
My other main horse is a black and white paint named Whiskey, we don’t barrel race, but have been dabbling in endurance riding this past year and we love it! She is a size small.
And my fur baby is our 7ish year old mix dog Nova. Grandma is her favorite person and she just puts up with the rest of us! HAHAHA

4.) Describe your home decor if you would prefer a gift for the home.  
Oh a little of this and a little of that, LOL. Love the color turquoise. Husband is big into hunting so the horses and the wildlife are mixed in together.


5.) Describe a clothing item you have been eyeing but cannot bring yourself to purchase for yourself. (Feel free to PM BHW_SECRET_SANTA your size if you are not comfortable posting it here.
I usually get all my clothes at 2nd hand places. But I’m a sucker for a good pair of earrings! Anything goes!


6.) Do you have children? Tell us a little bit about them. 
Not of the human kind! HA!


7.) List your top 3 favorite brands for grooming tools, blankets, and other small gear.
Oh I don’t really have any go to brands, if its quality made and made locally even better.


8.) List your top 3 favorite brands for treats for your horse, dog, or other pets.

9.) List 3 things you DO NOT want, or have excess of. (Body brushes, curry combs, treats, boots, etc.)  
Um, I don’t drink coffee and I dislike anything vanilla flavored/scented. Otherwise the ponies don’t mind!

10.) List 3 things you need right now for your barn. ( Buckets, hoofpicks, leads, halters, grooming supplies, treats etc.)  
My boy Blue has really sensitive skin, so anything grooming wise I’m always eyeing up to see if it would be gentle enough for him. I cleaned out the rear tack in my trailer this last week and could for sure use anything to help organize that mess! Bucket straps are always useful. Any first aid items- horse or human! Winter is coming to WI and toe warmers are always appreciated!

-That's tough! But I would say home or horse.

2.) Please list your favorite (1) Horse's name, age, sizing, color you prefer them to wear, etc.
-So hard to choose just one...both my boys are rockstars to me but:
Sir Moons A Lark aka "Coop" "Cooper" "Super Cooper" or "Super Pooper" when he decides his water bucket is a toilet
he's a 7 year old tall boy, 16'2 and wears a large in bell boots/splint boots
he's sorrel, all my tack is pretty neutral but i love a good bright bell boot for a POP of color

3.) Please list your pets and other horses names, age,color they look best in etc. here.
- Pay Me High aka "Champ" (he's the one in my profile pic)
he's a 13 year old line back dun or a "dunskin" so to speak.
he, like Cooper , wears neutrals but any color really pops
He is also a bigger dude, not quite as tall as Coop, but a stocky tank....he's thicker than a snicker if we're being honest
he also wears a large in bells and splints

4.) Describe your home decor if you would prefer a gift for the home.
- We are in the process of buying our farm we've been renting for the past year (YAY ) so its a mix of rustic / modern farmhouse decor throughout with a few deer heads, large mouth bass, and duck mounts hanging out on the walls. Also have a "gallery wall" I've been working on....I like to call it my cluster F%^& wall... it consists of canvas quotes, a few rusty bits on burlap canvas and some metal TN signs (Go Vols). If you see something that I could throw on the wall, that would be neat to receive too!

5.) Describe a clothing item you have been eyeing but cannot bring yourself to purchase for yourself. (Feel free to PM BHW_SECRET_SANTA your size if you are not comfortable posting it here.)

- No children and no plans to have children. The mister and I just plan to have and raise the four legged babies.

7.) List your top 3 favorite brands for grooming tools, blankets, and other small gear.

1.) Would you prefer a gift for your home, yourself, or your horse/pets?

Anything is fine, but I would pick home last, as I'm seldom there. I work a lot of hours and divide my
time between my house and my SO's.

2.) Please list your favorite (1) Horse's name, age, sizing, color you prefer them to wear, etc.

Zee is a six year old, 15 hand, sooty buckskin, and the most underworked and overpaid horse in the
state, I think. She is built like a Sherman tank (hence her nickname of Fatgirl). We don't
barrel race, but she goes with me to rodeos (I time) and we dink around and run stock through. Her
"job" is to check and gather cattle, when life permits. She's a cow eating machine. We don't really do
bling on her, and her colors are usually burgundy, black, and red depending on what I grab and what
I'm wearing.

3.) Please list your pets and other horses names, age,color they look best in etc. here.

Ruger is my Catahoula, and my third child. He is over 100#, and in my profile pic. He is seven and my
self appointed guardian and baby.

Calfdog is my red Angus calf. I have raised him from a day old. He was a twin, momma wouldn't take
him, and we fought a hard battle to keep him alive. He was my first bottle calf I bought (think I'm up to
16, most weaned or on a nurse cow). He thinks I'm his momma, comes in the house (yes he knows to go
out to use the bathroom), and generally rules the Circle K Bar (my SO's place). I love all my cattle, but
he has a special place in my heart and won't be sold. He even has a personalized eartag. So, I'll wind
up with a 1000# steer in the house. He's stunted a bit - not sure if he'll outgrow it, and that's fine with
me. He already wears a saddle and will be hauling with us next summer for fun!

4.) Describe your home decor if you would prefer a gift for the home.

Overall feel is mud, dust, and dog hair, with touches of western and rustic.

5.) Describe a clothing item you have been eyeing but cannot bring yourself to purchase for yourself. (Feel free to PM BHW_SECRET_SANTA your size if you are not comfortable posting it here.)

I'm a jewelry whore and addicted to 1921 Designs (on Facebook) or anything western. I so want a white
turquoise squash blossom necklace. I found some on ebay really reasonable. I also love earrings!

Shirts with cute sayings, especially cattle related and things like "faith", "blessed" etc. Tees, long
sleeves, hoodies..all of them! I wear a size small.

6.) Do you have children? Tell us a little bit about them.

My son is a junior in college and a combo jock/intellectual. He studies history/Spanish out east at
Haverford, but is currently abroad for a semester in Argentina. My daughter (the career rodeo queen
many of you have seen me post about) is a freshman at Yale with a chemical engineering major.
Yup...they both turned out fantastic!! Both are planning on being home for Christmas too!

7.) List your top 3 favorite brands for grooming tools, blankets, and other small gear.

I don't have any fave brands really.

8.) List your top 3 favorite brands for treats for your horse, dog, or other pets.

Our horses aren't allowed treats. The dogs occasionally get Canine Carryouts and milkbone type bones
or if I see a special on safe, homemade doggie treats at a rodeo I might grab some. Calfdog (and all
our cattle) love LOVE bread (white not wheat, go figure). They prob get treats more often than any! The
calves get apples, peaches and pears when the trees had fruit. Apples are there fave - I thought about
trying apple horse treats someday for them.

9.) List 3 things you DO NOT want, or have excess of. (Body brushes, curry combs, treats, boots, etc.)

Can't really think of anything. Over the years my brushes have wandered off at rodeos, along with a lot
of other things wearing out or breaking and us "getting by"

10.) List 3 things you need right now for your barn. ( Buckets, hoofpicks, leads, halters, grooming supplies, treats etc.)

I don't have a barn LOL - the horses rough it in a big pasture. BUT, my brushes have walked off and I
desperately need a new hay bag. Kept meaning to buy one this summer and never did. Sewed the mesh
where it had torn with baling twine at a rodeo and made it the rest of year. Redneck at it's finest.
Bucket straps would be AWESOME too!

List any other comments or things we should know about you here.

*Coffee and wine are life (moscato d asti).
*Now that my kids are in college I'm fulfilling some momma goals. Working with Zee, buying cattle
(think I have 22ish now with pairs, weanlings, and bottle babies), finishing my degree online.
*I'm office manager at our local sale barn, which is one of the biggest in the state, and I LOVE it. So I
wear a lot of westerny clothes and jewelry and work a LOT of hours November through May.
*I HATE being cold. And I'm cold if it's below 80°
*My Facebook profile is public - feel free to stalk or just check out pics of my amazing Calfdog, Ruger,
Zee, kids, and this life I'm loving so much! Edited to add: Diane Albrecht
*I'm feeling like a real grown up - got my own brand registered! We use my SO's for most things, but
my cattle will carry my brand, I have a bracelet with it, and it is going on a couple jackets. Kinda on a
kick with it now. I say Shining D.

1.) Would you prefer a gift for your home, yourself, or your horse/pets? Either me or my horses/pets

2.) Please list your favorite (1) Horse's name, age, sizing, color you prefer them to wear, etc.
I cant say I have a favorite one, so I'll give info on my favorite two (of the four)
Blitz 9 year old Liver Chestnut QH. Size 78 in blankets, Medium SMB's, Med or Large bell boots, normal horse size everything else. Her main color is Lime Green. Shes been laid off since February with a soft tissue injury low in her foot. Shes just coming back to being worked and legged back up to get back to running. Fingers crossed everything goes well!! Blitz likes cookies, but has to be careful because she is allergic to corn, so the only ones I've found that she can have safely is haystacks berry treats.
Duke 17 year old Dark Bay (almost Black) QH. Size 81 in blankets, Medium SMB's, Large bell boots, normal to larger horse size everything else. I just purchased him from my sister this last month (I've been running him since my mare got hurt and decided to just go ahead and buy him from her) I dont have much for him since most of my stuff is for Blitz. So I've started running him in turquoise/"pacific blue" SMB's and whatever bell boots I have that somewhat match. I just bought him two pairs of bell boots at the last race I was at and they are the professionals choice paisley patterned with turquoise velcro and the professionals choice longhorn patterned with turquoise velcro. I'm kinda liking the turquoise and orange ones too, but they didnt have any in his size. He does need a new halter.. Liking muletape, and especially beaded noseband muletape halters. (Blitz already has one). He also likes pht magnets and BOT stuff. I've been using most of Blitz's stuff with him since he doesnt really have anything of his own yet! Duke is a cookie hound, and has no allergies, so any cookies are good cookies in his book. Like seriously, cookies are life to him, so far his favorites are Nickermakers.

3.) Please list your pets and other horses names, age,color they look best in etc. here.
Other horses aka freeloaders/retirees: Rocky and Tucker. Rocky is 14 year old cremello QH, half brother to Blitz. Was hoping to have him become her back up, but not sure he's really got it in him to enjoy barrel racing. He did have a rough past with a prior owner, so hes tough to work with. 14 going on about 3 mentally. So he is kinda just a freeloader without a job but still very much loved. My retiree is Tucker, 19 year old palomino QH. He was retired at about 14 after fracturing his hock. His biggest worry in life is when breakfast is late. He doesnt really need anything but love, and he gets a ton of that!
As far as other pets, we have 3 dogs: Jordan, Tiffany and Perla. Jordan is a 12 year old blue heeler. Hes the king of the house/property and my main road-dog. He did get trampled/struck by a horse earlier this year and broke his nose, so he has a slightly different profile than he used to, and is spoiled beyond belief. Jordan is the one who comes out to the barn with me and helps me with chores, he babysits the new barn kittens when we get some, helps me secretary races, and is my travel companion. Tiffany is a 7 year old yellow lab. She is the happiest dog anyone will ever meet! She is also called the princess, cuz she will find the most comfortable spot anywhere and sleep there. If there's a stack of pillows on top of a mattress, she'll be on top of the pillows to sleep! Perla is our 5 year old kelpie mix? We adopted her from Cabo when we were on vacation there. She is our wild child, but the most snuggly of the three. If there is a spot somewhere in the house where the sun is shining in, she will be sleeping there. She also loves sand. When she can find a sun spot where she can dig herself a hole in some sand, she would be in heaven!! Tiffany and Perla dont travel quite as much with me, but they get to go sometimes, especially on longer trips when my husband tags along!

4.) Describe your home decor if you would prefer a gift for the home.
My home decor is pretty western/cabin like... Dont really need much tho - we have a small (750 sq ft) home, so not much room for "things". I do enjoy picture frames though!

5.) Describe a clothing item you have been eyeing but cannot bring yourself to purchase for yourself. (Feel free to PM BHW_SECRET_SANTA your size if you are not comfortable posting it here.)
I love hoodies - pretty much live in them! So any hoodies that are barrel racer themed or theres one that has "I run on caffeine, horses and cuss words" that I'd love to have. I'm a womens size medium to sometimes large, depending on fit. I also do need some cute button up western shirts, mostly turquoise for running Duke. I have a fair amount of lime green ones for Blitz, but wouldn't be opposed to either! Again, usually size medium to large. I've been getting more larges lately just to make sure they're loose enough to race in. Love wild rags.. Pretty much any fun prints with turquoise/blu-ish and/or lime green.

6.) Do you have children? Tell us a little bit about them.
No two legged children

7.) List your top 3 favorite brands for grooming tools, blankets, and other small gear.
Favorite blankets are weatherbeeta (hands down), professionals choice SMB's, professionals choice or classic equine bell boots,

8.) List your top 3 favorite brands for treats for your horse, dog, or other pets.
Blitz favorite treats: Haystacks berry treats (has corn allergy)
Duke favorite treats: Nickermakers
Dogs like pretty much anything!

9.) List 3 things you DO NOT want, or have excess of. (Body brushes, curry combs, treats, boots, etc.)
Is this even possible?!!?!?

10.) List 3 things you need right now for your barn. ( Buckets, hoofpicks, leads, halters, grooming supplies, treats etc.)
Duke needs a new halter (hoping for a muletape with turquoise/pacific blue colored, maybe beaded or something fun)
Haybags are always nice to have - can never have too many!! Loving the new pineapple print that professionals choice came out with!!!
Bell boots and SMB's are always nice too! Getting more into the fun prints with Duke. Blitz pretty much keeps to the solid lime green or maybe printed bells as long as they match with lime green. lol!

List any other comments or things we should know about you here.
Feel free to friend me or stalk me on fb. Niki Davila
Love hot chocolate and iced (and sometimes hot) tea. Dont drink coffee, but love starbucks
Love chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream (or most ice cream in general)
Love pumpkin flavored pretty much anything
I'd love to get a new purse.. Something smaller-ish (like 8-10ish inches) cross body, western/cacti/aztec/pendleton style (fringe is meh, not a no, but not a huge fan either)

I am so excited! This is probably the most excited I get for the holidays is doing SS!

1.) Would you prefer a gift for your home, yourself, or your horse/pets?
A mix

2.) Please list your favorite (1) Horse's name, age, sizing, color you prefer them to wear, etc.
I only have 2 and they are identical. At first glance, its hard to tell them apart.
Jazz and Chick are both sorrel mares with blazes. Both stand about 14.2. Jazz is 17 and CHick is 10. Wear medium boots. Size 78' blankets. Colors aren't a big deal. I like darker colors. Not really a fan of the bright colors.

3.) Please list your pets and other horses names, age,color they look best in etc. here.
Other than the 2 ponies, we have 3 dogs. 2 heelers and a Texas Heeler.
Spur is my TH. He's a 3 yr old blue merle with 1 blue eye and 1 brown eye.
Lizzy is my husbands dog. Shes a 12 yr old blue heeler.
Aggie is the other dog.... Shes a 6 yr old overweight red heeler.

4.) Describe your home decor if you would prefer a gift for the home.
We live in an RV so there isn't much décor in there. My husband and I lean more towards a western/rustic theme.

5.) Describe a clothing item you have been eyeing but cannot bring yourself to purchase for yourself. (Feel free to PM BHW_SECRET_SANTA your size if you are not comfortable posting it here.)
I love hoodies! Size medium. I also love ball caps. My favorite one is wearing out. It says fear the little red mare. I LOVE that hat!

6.) Do you have children? Tell us a little bit about them.
No 2 legged kids.

7.) List your top 3 favorite brands for grooming tools, blankets, and other small gear.
I am not picky on much but I prefer Professional Choice when it comes to sports boots. But CE for polos. LOL Not picky on bells.

8.) List your top 3 favorite brands for treats for your horse, dog, or other pets.
My dogs have me trained. They get a milkbone every time I leave. Treats for the horses are usually whatever is on sale. Jazz loves peppermints so I keep a bag on hand for her :)

9.) List 3 things you DO NOT want, or have excess of. (Body brushes, curry combs, treats, boots, etc.)
I don't need brushes or grooming supplies.

10.) List 3 things you need right now for your barn. ( Buckets, hoofpicks, leads, halters, grooming supplies, treats etc.)
I board so space is limited. I usually buy it if I need it.

List any other comments or things we should know about you here.
My husband and I love coffee. He just bought us a Kuerig so we've been experimenting with different flavored coffees. Im pretty boring. I hate being cold and winter is my least favorite time of the year. I usually look like an eskimo in the winter!
