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.

Come visit me, Rocky (the blue-eyed wonder horse), Comet (has new home) & Cowboy (Thanks for HOTD 1/19/2017!).

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 Katie! I'm so sorry I haven't been on HC lately, but I'm going to be better now :) How is everything going with you? Koot is doing great! The farrier is coming Monday to trim his hooves. The weather has been cold until this past week so it will be nice to get him out more. Voted. XOXO Danya and Koot

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.
Well, hope your week gets off to a good start.

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.

Hi & a Vote,
We had 3 days above 90 this week here, so too hot for the animals to do much. Yesterday Blue did get to visit the nursing home. Will probably be off line most of this coming weekend.

Most of the storm damage was south of us. Just a few big trees are down around here, will most a picture under Whisper page, of Catawba, one mile from where we live that the streets are flooded.
Quick vote this morning....taking a break from cleaning calf pens. 3 loads out this morning after feeding them. Well, I guess, feeding them causes all the cleaning!! :)

I guess I spend tooooo much time working and never really get to do the things I want to do. Barely, have time to ride, then it is only bareback around the pasture.
Clean out 2 smaller calf pens today, 12 wheelbarrow full, did not have a place to put it, so just used the spot where the old hay left from winter feeding was sitting. Hot today, Mike had to take my brother in law to dr. appointment in Eau Claire, so they met up with Tristan and had lunch with him.
The guy gave me chicken eggs to hatch for him, so far he has 4, and my sister gave me the pheasant eggs, looks like 10 so far.
Rained again today, that makes 5-6 inch of rain in 2 days, radio station in Ladysmith had 4 1/2 yesterday alone. Can not even walk in the garden to check little tomato plants, but I can see the weeds are doing fine.

Hi. Just zipping by on the way to work. Didn't get home from church and the birthday lunch till 6:30, so I only had time for a short 20 min ride walking around, did a little sidepassing and a step of shoulder out again.
Hope you had a good weekend and your week gets off to a good start.

Wow almost 29 yrs old....you do not look your age, (all girls like to hear that).
Very stormy wet day, still pouring out right now, with lightening and thunder, the sky looks very angry. But the ground was getting dried out, so rain is good. Farmers here are still planting.....and already cutting first crop hay....go figure. Lots of fields might not even get planted.
Went to Wausau, (100 mile one-way trip) for grandson Richard's birthday. He was showing me his lizard, and of course his turtle, General. Started raining and storming just after we got there. Then coming home around 3 stopped in at a graduation party in Tomahawk, more good food, and company. Took forever to get chores done, and lock everything up tight, see a fox right behind the barn last night. Collected guinea hen eggs, because the same hen that hatched out chicks in March wants little babies ones, so I fooled her and gave her guinea hen eggs. She is in one of the rabbit cages, high off the ground in the shed. Her young chicks want to sit with her on the nest, so that would not work too well. In a week I will give her 2 or 3 chicken eggs. Now it is really storming out, lost the internet before.

Hi Katie, Happy 29th Birthday! here's a vote for ya. Well summer hit! 90 F degrees today! But I did get weed whacking in three pastures done and in entranceway to the indoor! Along with mowing the two big pastures and the entranceway too! Then gave the Beast a bath, it was dirty from down at the horse show. Toweled it off, nice and shiny again! Then Indy and Bullseye got hosed off! The cold water helped with all Indy's fly bites too! They were very happy to stay in the barn and have lunch in front of their fans. Tomorrow I hope to mow the other pasture and do the far end of the indoor. Then done mowing for a couple of days. Chiro for me in the afternoon, need it after all the work around here! LOL!

That's so great that she's helping your daughter learn to ride. Don't you just love an easy-going older horse for all their wiser, easy-going ways? So glad Katie is doing well. You're still enjoying the new place? And Katie is liking her new feed and doing well on it?
We're fine, been a very busy early summer. We're also getting more rain this summer than last, which we really needed, but between the weather and the to-do list, it's been hard to ride as much. The horses don't seem to mind, go figure.
Well, hope you're having a great weekend. Take care.

Boy it went from winter jacket to bikini weather in one day!! 72 right now. Bright and Sunny, but calling for rain tonight. Want to finish planting the garden, picked up some more cuc/pickles, carrots....horses and rabbits told me 2 rows simple will not be enough. Still have to get summer squash in and potatoes, and set onions. Washing clothes so taking a break while I heat water for Lillies leg. Molly, is a bigger calf, was about 3-4 mts when we got her, (same time as the little ones), and she had pneumonia, been treating her since we got her. Well, I was just reading the penicillian is not the way to go, so started using a different kind, plus I have like "air power" and some meds for pneumonia in horses, did a lot of on line reading and calves can have it....just has a different name. Of course how do you get it in to Molly, if something is in her water or feed, she will not eat it, so I soaked a bun in milk and made her a sandwich. Gnats are terrible right now so I stopped for a bit, ( I was pulling grass and clover for the rabbits, and weeding flower beds at the same time). Break time is over!!

I've got so much going on, it's not easy to be on HC everyday. My cousin died Sunday morning. Still too much to process. Not going, because the service is in S.C and the burial in Georgia. I did send flowers to the funeral home, then called to make sure they got there. Been in touch with my aunt and brother. My car is in the shop. Should be ready Thursday.

We've been working on our barn and our electric fence. Got a new fence charger. Put up some new gates on the barn with "dutch doors". We put some clear Tex-tuff plastic tin on the gates to keep the rain out of the barn. We were just using a tarp and the strong wind and rain tore that down and scared the horses half to death. lol I'm posting some pics of the new gates below. P.S. don't know why the pics are sideways, the one with the bare gates is correct
