Long Time No See!!
Hello from wet cold Illinois!
I know it's been a loooong time since I've been on horse channel; you probably don't even remember me hahaha. I really miss seeing Katie's posts and it's good to catch up with all my HC friends.
Luna and I have been doing fine, plus, I have happy news: this past summer I got another horse! Her name is Allie and I adopted her from my boarding stable when they retired her as a lesson horse. She's mostly just a pasture pet, but I take her out for a short trail ride 2 or 3 times a month.
It's full on pouring down rain here right now, so no riding for me, but I still had to tend to Allie's fetlock. She got kicked or caught in a fence or some other nonsense, and has a gash right on the joint. It's not affecting the way she moves and doesn't seem to cause pain, but it's fairly ugly and it's not healing. I'm thinking it may turn into proudflesh.
Luna, on the other hand, is enjoying her day off. I think she actually likes the rain. Maybe it makes the grass taste sweeter!
Right now I'm just waiting for the rain to stop!!
I left you a vote, so have a horsey day!
---Allie, ~Luna~, and me Cindy

Come visit me, Allie & ~Luna~.

Wow, Maui! Too cool! You do the best vacations. Sounds like being Erika's chauffeur is gonna keep you super busy. I'm looking for art lessons for Madison, and then that'll be one more thing to add to my never-ending to-do list. But she's really pretty good and would enjoy meeting kids who're into the same things.
Glad your sweet Katie is still doing well. Have a good weekend.

We had rain yesterday, nice today, but very chilly early this morning, and I think rain tomorrow. I listen, but sometimes, it goes in one ear and out the other, and forgets to stop inbetween. :)
Still working on cleaning under the lean-to, only take out about 3-4 loads a day. Have to find a new flower bed to make, but thinking about redoing the one around the telephone pole. Too much grass is growing there. So tomorrow will try to dig out some of the plants, and start that bed over. Long day today, my eyes are tired. Dominic is sick now with the flu that Mike had, we went to Phillips to pick up his school work for him. Didn't have much, and brought some food for him but forgot 7-UP, his Dad called a bit ago, said he was still sick.

Hi. Hope your summer went well and you got some horse time. How's Katie? How's your daughter?
We've been fine. Didn't get to ride much this summer, just too busy. And the busyness continues into the fall. I'm ready for a break and some consistent riding.
Well, take care and drop by when you can.

Thanks everyone for the birthday wishes. Sorry I haven't been on in a while...lots going on right now. Still taking care of my mom. This weather really sucks...I'm beginning to think we live in the rain forest. Horses had their vaccinations and hooves trimmed. Lots of grass to cut and weeds to kill! Today my plan is to cook a pork roast, wash my truck, cut grass and weed eat, then go feed the herd. Have a great week!

Hi & a Vote,
Rode Rocky last evening on a nice trail ride with my friend and her buckskin. It was so relaxing to get out. Blue the dog loved it too!

Allie has to tell her Mom to stop looking at the weather map, because it is raining again, but oh, so softly. Just coming in from locking everyone up, was going to hang out one more load of clothes, but I guess not, unless I do it a bit later. There was a plane crash about 3 miles from here....made national new. No one made it. At Catawba, on Cty Rd 111.
Parade was short, and lots of candy thrown. Richard came home with his pockets full, plus his Mom. Leslie brought a homemade blueberry/cr cheese pie, so now Mike wants a birthday next week. They did not stay long, Sadie and Lucy, (their dog) got along great. Richard got to watch a baby keet, (baby guinea hen) hatch out. So he named it Silver, because it will be a gray one.
I broke down and gave Lilly and String a bottle tonight, it was only warm water, but they sure enjoy sucking. After drinking 6 qts each, their tummy don't look so thin.

Hi & a vote,
Barn duty ended officially yesterday morning. Now now more early a.m. stops before work for the time being, but it was nice to see the horses twice a day! Anyway, we are heading into 4th of July weekend, but I have to work on Monday. Then get ready for bridal shower on Long Island on the 8th! I have to hem my new dress over the weekend and start packing. (Blue the dog will happily go back to stay over at Hailey's place again!)

Hi & a vote,
Was out to the barn last night and this morning to feed and put the horses in/out. Hailey and Blue are enjoying each other's company at my place, but will go home tomorrow. Blue went to his agility class last night, which only takes 1 hour, before heading out to the barn. The new cat is settling in really nicely and is ok with the dogs, which is a relief.

Well I had a pretty full week this past week! It was my birthday and tropical storm Cindy came through. Another milestone birthday. Had a great time for my birthday. My sisters took me out to eat at Texas Roadhouse Steakhouse. Then they surprised me with a cake and gifts when we got back. I posted 3 pics on Susie's page of my horsey cake, my barn time tee shirt and horse book. I also received a gift from my sister in Florida, it was an Amazon Echo. I am having fun with that...talking to Alexa. lol

The storm didn't do any damage here. We had a lot of rain and some minor flooding in some areas. Just glad it wasn't a hurricane. Hope you all have a great week!

Hi & a Vote,
Today, barn duty started through Thursday, so I'm taking full care of all the horses and the barn cat, but it's fun to me. Hailey the dog staying over our house with Blue, so he's loving having a pal here. And to top it all off, we got a new cat, Cali, 5-year old tortiseshell, that had been at the shelter for too long and badly needed a home.

Hi & a Vote,
Rode Rocky last evening with my friend and her horse for a trail ride. We saw a double-rainbow! Blue and her dog, Hailey, were along for the ride too. Yesterday was a.m. dog adoption clinic and then Blue to the nursing home for a therapy dog visit.

My sister in law says she's feeling better. They think they'll release her this weekend some time. So my to-do list this weekend includes working on the deck, cutting a little grass, taking care of her dog, and visiting and/or bringing her home.
I've been so busy and overwhelmed lately, but it was a blessing to come home from work and find that a friend had dropped off a mower and my son had cut nearly all the grass for me. That's a 3-4 hr job. I've got some touch up work to do, but at least most of it is done. Bless him.
Well, hope you have a good saturday

Hi & a vote,
I am just back from vacation yesterday. Picked up Blue dog from my friend's house in the evening just in time for Rocky to go out for the night. Blue's tail was going to wag off, but today I think he's missing his "vacation" days at the barn with his BFF dog Hailey. But, Hailey will be staying with us 3 days next week and I will be on full-time barn duty for horses & cats too. FUN!

I got to observe an interesting bit of equine behavior tonight. Lately, Dee and Allie have been at each other before feeding time, before I can get everybody caught and tied up. The intensity has recently been upped to pretty serious kicking matches, so tonight, BJ took it upon himself to run over and break them up. He had to do it several times before I could get them caught. I was so proud of him. Someone has to keep those mares in line, and it ain't easy.
Hope your week is going well

Lots of short runs today. Had to get some more pepper plants seems the ones I had planted "drown". But no pepper plants at a little local greenhouse, so will have to check big box stores. Or else just plant the tiny ones I have. Did buy pansy and a few other flowers.
Stupid fox was after a guinea this afternoon, out in the field seen the guinea jump up and fox right after it, and me right after the fox. Chased it across the field nearly to the rock pile, where it must have dropped it, it did die, but at least she will not be a meal for the fox. Quickly I moved all the rest of the guineas into the pen and rounded up the hens outside.

Steve is very protective of me, if he says Sunset isn't right for me, I will take his advice. Will ask him if he feels comfortable selling her, maybe as a hunter/jumper prospect for an experienced rider. If not, like Ricky was always telling Lucy, "I got some 'splaining to do". Steamy day, been enjoying watching the hummingbirds (5-6) and barn swallows (maybe 20?), hard to count the way they zip around. There also 5 swallow chicks just learning how to fly. Got the the new tires ordered for the trailer today, will get them on Thurs.

Been raining on and off today, but not enough to stop me from being outside. Took my sister, Becky to look at a different car. Her's is just not safe for driving. She has not worked for months, has some sort of arthritis which cause her hands, elbow, neck, etc. to swell all up for days, so they send her home from work. One month she worked 1 day. I know she has another dr. appointment on the 21st. They keep changing her meds, to see "what works". So my Mom gave her enough money to buy the car, I wish we could have helped out, but all worked out OK. The rest of the day, spent pulling weeds and working around the garden and flower beds. Was going to clean calves pens again, but did not have bedding to change or put down. I wish they would spend more time outside eating, well 3 of them do, but the Lillie and String spend so much time just sleeping.

I was kinda tired and dragging yesterday, so after church, added some more concrete to the holes (I wasn't happy with what I had so bought some more), and instead of riding, just did a little groundwork and called it a day.

Thanks for Ace's birthday wish. Happy Belated Birthday to Katie! Wow...29 years old! Hope she got lots of treats.

No riding here for me! Seems like it's either raining and a sloppy mess, or when it's dry there is grass to be cut. I have been mowing grass for three days, at home and at the pasture. The herd is enjoying a life of leisure. Enjoy your week!

Hi Katie, here's a vote for ya. Glad that Katie enjoyed her birthday party and treats! Well it started out misty and then the sun made an appearance, left again, then came back for the rest of the day! So we never got the T-storms today. Sure as heck hoping we don't get them tomorrow! I really want to leave for the show in the am! Did my worst fear in life! Cleaned the house! LOL! Did get the boys out for like 2 hours or more and it wasn't that bad for them! Hot yes, about 84 degrees, but a cool breeze blowing through the pastures. Still don't know if we're leaving or not tomorrow. So I might be on tomorrow and then again I might not!

Sounds like Erika has your summer all planned out, but later looking back you will see those were great times. I can remember having 4 boys in "different" baseball teams, and it was run, run run all summer going to practices and games.
If I would have thought of digging a "big" hole this spring right in the middle of the lawn, we could have our own swimming pool. Water disappears fast, because the puddles, that I just had to walk threw this morning to feed calves, is now gone. Rained all night, sounded good on the tin roof, and still showers "here and there" called for. I was just being able to walk in the garden after last Sunday & Monday's down pour....now there are little puddles in all my foot steps. Horses got another small pasture made, so happily eating down the long grass. Happy Father's Day to all the 4 legged Dads out there, and the 2 legged ones too!!

Aw, so glad Katie enjoyed her birthday, and you and your daughter got to spend the day with her. Sounds like your daughter really has fun with her. Sounds like she has a really full schedule too, keeps you more than busy.
I rode Allie for about an hour yesterday, so she was good and sweaty by the time we finished and got a thorough hosing off afterward. We did a lot of lope to trot transitions and circles. So-so, she just really resists giving her nose, even after all the work over the last year. Trimmed her feet after the ride, and then got all the posts set in cement. Enjoyed being outside most of the day.
Well, hope you have a great sunday.

Leaving a vote for your lovely Katie
I did get to ride Allie yesterday am. She did okay, considering she hasn't been ridden in a week. She spent the whole time looking for something to spook at without quite actually spooking, just on high alert. I told her Tackies aren't supposed to spook, but she's lived with quarter horses too long, I guess. Also got the last 2 holes dug, picked up 3 more 8 ft long posts and a couple bags of cement...in my Camry. Talk about redneck, that was a sight! And got the mower up to the repair shop (used the truck for that, lol).
Gotta work today, but hope you have a great friday.

Cisco enjoyed his treats. Bo got a "super bath" yesterday, used the curry and my new wash mitt to really work the suds in, the gave her a good groom after she dried. She looks good. No riding, Jazz was a little stiff yesterday and today, probably from the ride Mon and the trim Tues.

I went to the feed and seed to buy new post hole diggers, and they had a lot of new fly products, so I got a couple different things to try. Not holding my breath, seems like the flies are immune to everything, but gotta try. It's funny, everybody reacts to seeing post hole diggers the same..."That's a LOT of work" in a sad, commiserating tone of voice. Yes, yes they are. I got 4 out of 6 holes dug for a mini deck beside the pool. And if you're thinking the pool was too much to resist after digging and sweating out in the hot sun, you're right. It felt soooo good to jump in.
Well, hope you have a great thursday and stay cool.
