ABOUT DIXIE:
There is plenty to write about Dixie, because she was one of a kind. Her personality was amazing, and she was a lady with attitude and power.

She had her own opinions, as mares usually do, and she never hesitated to let you know. If she disagreed under saddle, she would stomp the ground and (literally) say "HMM".

Dixie gave me everything - Balance from both the ground and from the saddle, and helped me understanding the horses' behavior. She showed me a whole new side to myself, and helped me with my temper, which used to be a little feisty. She showed me how a friendship should be, and how important trust is.
Unfortunately, Dixie was quite shy when she arrived in Denmark (she had a tough trip overseas), and it took me a year to gain her trust.
She was without a doubt a one-man's horse, and she knew how to sort the ones she didn't trust from the ones she did. She never did anything bad, and always did what was asked of her, no matter who handled her, but it was obvious whether she felt safe with the person or not.

Dixie was very alert both from the ground and from the saddle. She loved to run like the wind, and she was the type of horse you needed to rein in instead of push forward. Theoretically you could almost steer her by power of thought alone (most likely because you loosen the reins when you think "Forward").

THE STORY OF DIXIE:
Dixie was born in Texas, USA on the 8th of August 1999. Between the ages 1-5 she was a showhorse, and as far as I know, she spent pretty much all her time in a stall, except from when she was being exercised, groomed or moved around.
When she was 5 y/o, she was lucky to be spotted by a lady, who ended up buying her, and the following 3 years she was a companion and broodmare.
In 2005 Dixie had a beautiful palomino colt. He was named "I'm Generating Gold" aka. Jackson. Again in 2007 Dixie was preggy, but in April she lost her foal. This foal was a big, longlegged palomino filly.

THE STORY OF DIXIE AND I:
In May 2007, a friend and I were looking at a salespage for Tennnessee Walking Horses. There were three pages in all, and many gorgeous horses, but none of them caught my eye before the last page. There were a tiny picture measuring 2x3 cm with a picture of the most beautiful sorrel mare I had ever seen. She had a light mane and tail, and she looked without a doubt my dreamhorse. The first thing I did, was to point at her and say "That's mine!". And on the 16th of June 2007, she was.
The 10th of July 2007 we drove to Amsterdam to pick her up, after she'd been in a 30-day quarantine.
The feeling when I saw her was indescribable. I had to fight the tears of joy, and when I was handled the leading rope and put my hand on her neck the first time...well, it was just the most amazing feeling. She was soft like silk, and she was shining like gold. Finally my dream through 7 years had come true - I had my very first Tennessee Walking Horse. :o)

Dixie and I had some amazing times together. Most of all, I used her for trailrides and worked with her in the arena, but I got to show her twice. Both times at the annual Stallionday in Viborg, Denmark.
As far as I'm concerned, Dixie is the first Tennessee Walking Horse, who has been showed in Denmark.

On the 16th of August 2009, Dixie was bred to the TWH stallion Smokin' Colt 45.
The foal was supposed to have been named "Smokin' Hot and Dangerous" for registration name, and "Nugget" for the everyday, but unfortunately he/she never got to see the light of this world.

DIXIE'S LAST DAYS:
On the 30th of January 2010 Dixie was kicked in the head on the pasture. For three days, we fought for her life, but in the end we realized that there was nothing more we could do
On the 2nd of February I faced the most difficult choice in my life. I said goodnight to Dixie, hugged her a last time, and sent her over the rainbow bridge. :ó(

R.I.P. Dixie
You were the best horse imaginable, and you will never be forgotten.
Every 2nd in the month I light a candle for you and Nugget, while listening to "To Where You Are", and look through pictures from our best times together.
You'll always be my no. 1 star!

    I love Dixie! She was such a magnificent personality! I've never met a horse like her and I doubt I ever will. You two were closer than any other horse/owner I know, it was truly beautiful to watch you two interacting.
    You don't need me to tell you that Dixie was utterly gorgeous, as in freakin drop-dead-on-sight gorgeous, but I'll tell you anyway! She was! XD

    Dixie, you will be missed forever!
