Hooves crossed for Whiskey to be ~ May HOTM ♡
<)___~ Whiskey will return to the Doc on May 20th for his next set of x-ray’s. I feel he will be just fine, last dose of bute yesterday and I think in 2 days will tell a lot of how he is but I can’t know for sure until the next visit. I want to thank you all for all the amazing support throughout the month of April. I hope you enjoyed his story and I surely hope I can tell you many more story’s in the future of he & I riding together…God bless you all…..I honestly did not realize how difficult and demanding running for HOTM could be until now! Not having a computer at home really made this challenging for me, so again I cannot say thanks enough, sending love to you & your herds!!!!!!!
Here is our finial tidbit on the Fabulous Rocky Mountain Horse Breed! In the early 1960s, Sam Tuttle managed the trail riding concession at the Natural Bridge State Park in Powell County, Kentucky. He had as many as fifty horses there, including TOBE. This stallion was often seen tied to the hitching post alongside all the mares. He became quite well known in the ten or so years he was ridden there. Besides breeding, TOBE was used as a trail horse. He carried Sam, and sometimes the trail guides who worked for Sam, with sure-footed ease over mountainous terrain for many years. Although Sam would allow other people to ride TOBE occasionally, it was always a ride closely supervised. He loved to show off his beloved stallion, but also kept a close eye on him. Everyone who rode TOBE enjoyed his gentle temperament and comfortable gait. It amazed people to think the well-mannered horse they were riding was indeed a breeding stallion.
TOBE was used for breeding until July of his thirty-fourth year, and he passed on his gait, disposition, and other great qualities to his offspring. It has been said that TOBE's progeny followed in his "perfectly-timed" footsteps. TOBE sired many fine horses before his death at the ripe old age of thirty-seven. One outstanding trait passed on was longevity, as many of his offspring were still breeding into their late twenties and early thirties.
Thank you for your support we appreciate it! Hoping to see him as the top horse tomorrow!!!!!

Cliff & I woke early Saturday to check on him and of course Cliff kept assuring me that I needed to go ride (the day I met and rode with Cheryl & Cisco) and he and Doc would take the best of care of my Whiskey boy. I wanted to call several times as we rode but needed to wait until we stopped for lunch so if I were to break down we would be off the horses and settled for a while. I called and yes he had foundered. Xrays showed that it is not as bad as I thought thank god! Doc says he feels very positive that he will be ok. The back legs are fine. They put wedge shoes on his front hoofs and I have been giving bute 2x's until 4/22, I backed down to 1 x a day Doc Edwards said when we back off to 1x a day that will be when we know for sure if he is ok and as of 4/28 he is doing fine and walking normal, ACTING LIKE MY Whiskey Boy! still keeping a watchful eye out for anything abnormal. Praying for a full recovery ✞
Sam Tuttle was the most prominent breeder of Rocky Mountain Horses for the first three quarters of the twentieth century. With the advent of better roads and means of travel, the population of gaited horses in the United States began to decline. The exception was the less developed area of the Appalachian Mountains. Gaited horses were still needed for travel where there were no roads, and therefore they were preserved in that area.
Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

My Whiskey boy has the antics of a comedian! In this picture I feel like he is saying “Sit Mom”. I was brushing him-you can see my boots towards his backend on the other side of him. He is so funny but yet so very gentle and lovable. He is in fact my “treat Hound”. He will do absolutely anything in the world to get a treat, cookie or carrot or anything to eat. If you show him how to do something and he knows you are going to give a treat he will try until he learns it to in fact get that treat. I have had so much fun with him. He will check me for a treat and if I don’t have one he will almost shrug me off with a turned head tossed in the air as if he is saying “I’m done with you, off you go child”
The Rocky Mountain Horse breed originated in the United States in the late 1800s, in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains of eastern Kentucky. At the time of its beginnings, there was no understanding of the need to document anything about these horses. The people living in this region were quite unaware that one day their utility horses would become the foundation of a special breed of horse. The existence of these horses was practically a secret for many years to all but the inhabitants of this region.
Have a wonderful evening. I will phone vote tomorrow and pick back up on Wednesday. Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

Hi Fancy Pants, here's a Happy Easter vote for ya. What a day. Paige is still really having trouble with a stiff neck. I tried to work her, she was grinding her teeth. Stopped, and called Larry my vet. Yes, it's Easter Sunday, I don't care and neither does he. I have his private cell number, called that, he was out on the tractor seeding a pasture, yep no days off for horse people! LOL! Said give her 5 cc Banamine and come up and get some Gastro Guard for her tummy and keep on bute for two more days. So Harley and I jumped in the truck and off we went to Doc's farm. She's just so sensitive! So I did that before going over to my good friend and her family for Easter Diner! Got home and Paige was much better, moving her neck more, Banamine is working, and so's the Gastro Guard. Other than that, it's sunny and hit 60 degrees again. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

The more we rode the better Whiskey got at reining. The more miles and trails the easier it got on me and him. I discovered Whiskey loves the water. The picture today was taken 8/2012. We can get in a few minutes but I have to move him out or he will try to lie down, but I can take him right back in and then he settles to stand, doesn’t swim yet with me. We are still working toward that. We haven’t camped out in nearly 2 years, and that is when I can try to swim with the horses. It’s too hard to try swimming when I day ride because of the drive home (driving wet is no fun) -ha ha =) Deacon is my true water baby-he will actually swim with me and never try to lie down. I have also found that Whiskey hates for any type bug to fly in his face-so needless to say while we ride in the open if there are grass hoppers or butter flies, regular fly’s he tosses his head slightly. It doesn’t bother me now but it used to. Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

STARTED STERL'S HAIRCUT....
We are happy to report Sterly looks good this morning, we left votes. I hate when she is off, she is so easy to read, so is Charlie. I realize that even a mild gas colic is upsetting to their systems and it takes a couple of days to get everything straightened back out. Because she is generally pretty healthy, just the usual "old age" stuff, I have always thought that if something takes her from me, it will likely be colic. So I have had a couple of real bad days too... We do what we can, nature takes care of the rest. Have a wonderful Easter, Love Donna Lee

Finally that Saturday morning rolled around. I could hardly sleep the night before. Everything was running threw my head about what I was going need and about if I had everything ready for his arrival to our place. I kept thinking about how alpha Deacon was and how they would get along. After all they have road a thousand miles of trails together. . The more I thought, the more I felt like after the ride we would come on home instead of camping. I wanted to get him home and on our property to make this dream come true for me. I had never rode Whiskey until the day I bought him, can you believe that!!! It did not matter to me how he rode at all, I wanted him and that was that! We had a nice ride that day and came on home. Cliff broke out his tools and started working around the barn. Today’s picture is of Whiskey’s first comedy show for us. He said (ha ha) “Dad, I can bring this orange Home Depot bucket to ya, I know it has feed in it for me!” Enjoy! Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

We left off Friday about the phone call to buy Whiskey! The arrangement was made for us to meet that weekend and Whiskey would be mine. The next few days were like a life time to me. I had put in a vacation day for that Friday because I knew I couldn’t concentrate and I wanted to get everything ready for the trail ride …I mainly wanted to get everything ready for his new home with us. Cliff was putting in our stalls at the time. I came home the day Karla called and talked with Cliff of course. Like I said he wasn’t working but he was working at our place (love cheap labor) lol. That next day after work I came home and he had added the 3rd stall, I started to cry of course because I knew he understood how badly I wanted Whiskey. Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

FIRST RIDE OF THE SPRING.....
Good Morning my friends. Well, it has been quite a week. My apologies for not being here for my usual Saturday morning thing, but I had to work. It was just 5 hours, at straight OT, hee haw. The best news of all, Trevor saw his oncologist on Friday, she is VERY pleased, so far. The tumor can still be felt, but she said it is smaller than 6 weeks ago when he finished treatment. She said this type of tumor can continue shrinking for up to a year. She wants to see him in a month. Second, it was a nice day yesterday, all tho still "boot sucking" mud. I got all the broken insulators replaced on the bottom row of my fence, due to snow damage. The fence looks good again, then, because yesterday was ONE YEAR since my shoulder surgery, I took Charlie out for a ride, there is one tiny little corner of the paddock that was dry enough to walk a bit, barely...but at least it was a ride. I thought it was significant. Good thing too, because it rained overnight and rain is on for today, cold next week maybe even a flake or two of snow, boo. Have a great day, we left a vote, Love to all, thanks for the prayers for Trevor. Love Donna Lee

Have a GREAT weekend !
Today’s picture is the picture Karla was going to post on craigslist & the first picture I ever had of Whiskey of my own until he became mine. When I speak of Whiskey my heart totally melts. I can get side tracked easily talking about him…so needless to say, we rode many times and camped a many a night. SO nearly 6 or 7 months later I received a call at work and it was Karla. My heart sunk, I knew she was going to say Whiskey was for sale. At that time Cliff was out of work (construction-you probably know how that goes) I was scared to ask how much they were asking. She told me what they were going to post him for on craigslist and I knew I could not afford that price. I told Karla I could not pay that price but to wait and not post until I could try a few options. She said right then that “sense you are a friend and we know how much you want and love him here is what we will sale him to you for”!!! It was like-woohoooooo! It was a price I could actually afford (not really but hey). I will get as many phone votes in over the weekend as I possibly can, mainly Sunday but will try to get some on Saturday; I will catch you up on Monday! Riding at Lake Whitney Saturday& will meet Cheryl and Cisco!!

Good morning =)
As we ate lunch and rested, Whiskey walked over to me several times. He would nuzzle my hand (at the time I didn’t know he was a treat hound) and I felt as if we bonded and we were linked in some way. I told Karla right then and there that if they ever sold Whiskey to please contact me first. He has marbling on his lower legs that are silver, chocolate and nearly liver color (see his profile picture for today). It amazes me to still look at how he is marked; he is just absolutely beautiful-but I’m parcel!!! He is our escape artist, the one that can get into or out of ANYTHING; such a smarty pants and a treat hound lol. Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

Hi Fancy Pants, here's a vote for ya. What a day, both weather wise and riding wise! It's sunny and kinda windy, but did hit 58 degrees. We rode in the indoor, don't want the cool wind blowing her hair coat with just three weeks till showtime. OMG, I did my first straight line flying lead change on her! We were practicing simple changes three down the line, when I came around again and down the center line, I asked for the first one and was right in sync and we got the best flying lead change going. It felt awesome. Indy got lunged today, told him he's back to work, three weeks till he's under saddle working with Marissa at the show. We won't show him yet, but he'll have a few days of rides put on him. Love ya, Marion and the blondies.

Whiskey says Thank You for your support!
Monday we left off about Whiskey’s color and me with 5 hundred questions for Karla! Here we go…That poor girl had never met me before and I could not shut up :) I then walked over and looked Whiskey right in the eye and he looked back into mine and my heart sunk. His beauty was striking and the color was outstanding. He had a smart, sharpness about him-I’m sure he was thinking “what in the world is she doing”. The ride finally got underway; usually everyone has me ride out front and calls me the trail boss! Deacon is a faster walking horse but can ride in the middle or behind after the first hour or so. Well, here comes Rio & Whiskey with their smooth selves!!! They just gaited their smooth self’s right past me & Deacy. I watched Whiskey and noticed he didn’t quite move the same as Rio but still a difference from a QH. 2 hours into the ride we decided to rest a few minutes in a place we call “Carol’s lounge”. We have names for all our spots we ride to rest or to take a break out there because it’s so big. Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

Hi Fancy Pants, here's a vote for ya. Overcast with periods of sun, but very windy, good to dry up yesterdays rains. It did hit 60 degrees too! Paige was a firecracker on the line, she got lunged for respect and things got better, she's always a little full of herself after her day off on Monday. But did she ride great for Marissa. Today was Marissa's day to play with her, I'll have my lesson tomorrow for sure. Indy and Bullseye got indoor time, pastures are a muddy mess yet and no green stuff growing yet!

Now were into “Whiskey’s” story really good! I finished getting Deacon ready for our all day ride. We always pack drinks and hotlinks or some sort of sausage/lunch meat for lunch. Bill got a call that they were pulling in and asked us to wait a few minutes before heading out. I guess we had about 8 riders starting out then Karla & Tim made 10-oh what fun! They pulled in and parked and they started to unload the horses and of course I was already curious. Out came this Smokey chocolate colored horse, smaller built and my jaw dropped open in awe….Her horse Rio changes colors as all Rocky’s do throughout the year so he had almost a buckskin color but he is what they call a chocolate color. Then out comes Tim & Whiskey~~~~OMG I thought I would faint…..I was speechless….I had never seen a horse look like that nor that color…I went over to Karla and started all the questions and she explained that Whiskey’s color is called “Red Chocolate”. To be continued Wednesday, phone votes tomorrow =) Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

Hi Fancy Pants, here's a vote for ya. What a nice day out, made it to 58 degrees and very sunny, so it felt really warm. Marissa was away judging a horse show. So it was Paige and I. We used the outdoor arena since the footing is so much nicer there and of course the sun was so warm. But across the street all the steers were gathered in the top of their field. She was very curcious about them. I kept her attention and after a few minutes she didn't care. WE had a nice ride, worked on getting that c bend and then moving that hip in and then out. Did some jogging with the right amount lift and got some really nice lope off departures and was swaying in the saddle with her hips. Starting to really become one with her now. Got home and got the boys out, Indy got the indoor to really blow off steam in, and then I put Bullseye in the small pasture, no grass in there yet, but he got fresh air too. Love ya, Marion and the blondies.

Whiskey says Thank You, we understand
In 2008 the decision was made after a talk with our boy’s and Cliff. It was time for me to get back on my horse journey. I purchased Deacon in March 23, 2008 and then bought Whiskey in May 2010. When I run Deacon I will tell more about the 1st 2 years back on my journey. Now that you have some back ground on me and my journey I will start Whiskey’s story with me. As many of you know I trail ride and use to camp with the horses all the time, now we just day ride. Hoping this spring sometime to camp again-fingers crossed =) It has been 2 years sense we have camped out with them. We would camp at Mccown or Plowman Valley at Lake Whitney Texas or at Reynolds Creek Lake Waco, Texas. During those times I have met a lot of people and their different type of horses. On one Oct. weekend we had some friends of Bill’s that was coming that I had never met. I asked Bill as we all were getting our horses ready for our ride that day, what type horses did these friends have? He said Rocky Mountain horses…I said hummmm, never heard of that breed. The thoughts in my head about this breed had me so curious. Now tomorrow we are into his story fully….hang in there! Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

Have a GREAT weekend !
Early year’s cont. My brother-n-law took Tawny for me and kept her until she passed away in 2002. 2 years after the kick in the back I was brave enough to buy this smaller paint- Welsh mix. She was a beautiful tri-colored paint her name was Kallie. She was gentle and slower moving. She was fat of course ha ha. I didn’t have everything I needed (trailer, truck and knowledge). I had the property and a neighbor that would help me out. She had a quarter horse & we would ride the country side all around our properties. I had hoped to do more and learn more with horses but I was young and full of myself! Anyway, I then met someone and started dating and from there I got out of horses. That was about April 1991 when I sold Kallie. Then came along the start of my family in Nov 1992! The rest of our story will be of this last 7 years that I have had Deacon, Whiskey & Rocket (Rocket is Cliff’s horse). Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

Hi Fancy Pants, here's a vote for ya. What another beautiful weather day! Hit 67 over by Paige and 63 up here on my farm! Sunny all day long. Marissa was working horses outside arena in a tank top, but she runs hot she said. All winter she wore underarmor and sweatshirt and was toasty, me, I'm like an ice cube! Pile on the cloths! Pagie got worked strickly for Western Pleasure today. We've decided to hold off another month on the English work and get her shown Western Pleasure and prove a few points to people, that the mare can do it and came back to what she was when I purchased her. I had a good ride too! Got home late, so the boys got hay at 5:30 for a late day snack. Love ya, Marion and the blondies.

thanks for dropping by!

I ordered the walter Farley children's book, "little Black: a Pony" since godiva was named little black when I bought her. it was the fave story of the lady I bought her from and i'd somehow missed it as a kid. godiva sure does look exactly like the illustrations! got my water rake and tried it out finally. it's a wand that concentrates a line of water streams. I held it over peach's top line and ran it down her back like a "car wash"! she looks clean now! even got a lot of the caked on clay off her fetlocks. more rain on the way so she may not stay clean. got a wool saddle pad for my aussie saddle and tried it out on smooch today. my other pads were all to small so it's nice to have one that fits it finally. :)

phone votes tomorrow for everyone =)
Our story continues. After looking at several horses I had found a beautiful Palomino mare (I knew you would be surprised Marion & the Blondie’s) her name was Tawny. She had a white blaze & 4 white socks. During that time frame I had attended several Ray Hunt seminars. Man he was awesome (RIP Ray). After having her for some time I wanted to breed her to this beautiful stallion (deep dark chestnut QH). The Handler of the stallion asked me to release my mare and leave the paddock area, I thought ok…they were pretty far from me, but it seemed strange that I should let her go-at the time I had trust in these people….??? I prefer not to go into all the details (I didn’t and still don’t know much on the breeding side of horses-learned good lesson about people and stallions that day)-after releasing Tawny I turned to walk away but the handler must have lost control because the stallion kicked me in the back and burst my left kidney and tore my spleen. Yes, I almost died. They rushed me in for emergency surgery. I spent 2 weeks in the hospital; I now only have one kidney. I actually lost 7 units of blood internally, like I said I’m lucky to be alive. I trusted that person with the safety of myself and my horse but I guess my judgment needed a little adjusting! I will continue the story on Saturday, remember-phone votes tomorrow! Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

I just have to really practice keeping her between the reins and straight. Did some work on trying to learn the flying change, but she would shut down on me when transferring my leg cues. Need to build my legs up! LOL! Got home and did some more clean up outside, I think I saw some sprigs of green grass trying to sprout up! Yippy! Love ya, Marion and the blondies.

I will explain how I came about choosing my Whiskey and Deacon so it takes us Wwway back~~~~~ lol ~ I got out of the Navy in 1986. I knew I wanted to get a horse at the time and I wanted to try barrel racing. I had a friend in California (last place I was stationed) that was running the circuit barrel racing and a boyfriend riding bulls so I guess that is what made me want to try barrels. I really just wanted a horse to care for and ride because I loved them so much. I moved back to Texas and started my search. I met a lady where I started working that raised quarter horses and she had a beautiful dark bay mare that I started riding, her name was Fanny. She was very gentle and easy to handle. My sister said I could put a fence up on her property and use their garage to convert into a stall and storage area. So I went to work with a few friends and converted this place and added one stall and a tack area. It took a few months to get everything ready so the lady let me make payments. Once she was paid off, and the property was ready I brought her home with me. Things just didn’t work out for Fanny & me. I’m sure you all can relate to the fact that some horses and humans are not a match. That is how it was with her, just didn’t feel right. The hunt was on and a new year began 1987 ~ Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

Hi Fancy Pants, here's a vote for ya. Thank you to everyone who supported me on my Run for HOTM! We did it with well over 925 votes and the help of our wonderful furfriends on DC too! Paige and I love ya'all very much! Well it turned into a sunny 60 degrees and we're lovin' it! Worked Paige outside at our trainers and Marissa rode her outside too. The arena is heavier in sand and she'd tired a little faster, but she did very well. Sights and sounds of trucks and all the outside horses didn't phase her. Very happy day. Indy and Bullseye got extra hay when I left, had grocery shopping to do on the way home. Was running extremely late! Once again, thanks for all the support for Paige. Love ya, Marion and the blondies.

Congratulation’s Queen Paige “Nuttin But Good” our April HOTM! Here we go with our campaign with Whiskey 237221 to be May 2014 HOTM! I need everyone’s support so vote on his page daily please!!! Every other weekend I am not around a computer so I will phone vote as many as possible, also 1 x a week that I will phone vote :) I will start my story with why I have and will ONLY have such well trained and gentle geldings, then I will start how Whiskey & I became each other’s very best friends along with some Rocky Mountain facts about the breed ♡ * Rocky Mountain Horses are slow to mature and do not reach their full size and weight until about five to six years of age. Generally healthy horses, they often live long lives but do have a tendency to be extremely "easy keepers". Care must be taken to keep your Rockies from becoming too overweight, particularly in their later years.* Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

Hi Fancy Pants, here's a vote for ya. First let me say thank you to everyone for all the votes this month towards Paige's run for HOTM! With nearing 900 votes as of right now, I think it's almost safe to say we did it! Today was work around the farm day for us. It's our trainers day off, so therefore Paiges day off also. So I did get a few things down here, and outside to boot. Sunny with winds, to dry things up after the 3 inches of rain over the weekend. Got Indy lunged and Bullseye free lunged. Got a lot of raking done outside and de-thatching of the lawn. Hopefully it'll start to go green, everything is brown dead grass from all the snow sitting on top of it. Here's to spring, high 50's all week with sunshine! Love ya, Marion and the blondies.

Hi Fancy Pants, here's a vote for ya. Well it's rain and rain and more rain. Sorry some of you western states folks, I know you need it, but somehow we got it all, about 3 inches in two days. Now possible snow and freezing sleet over night! But tuesday and the rest of the week in the high 50's! Can't wait. What a day with Paige today. I had to almost beg Marissa to get off of her, she was having to much fun riding her. I got a really cool bridle-less and no neck rope video, will transfer to computer and load it tomorrow for my feature of the week. I got my lesson finally, we worked on me closing my eyes at the lope on the long sides of the indoor to get the feel for her legs and movement and to learn to trust her and not look at her head. (Bad old habbit of mine) Got home and got Indy to the indoor for some lungeing time. He's just too cute! Love ya, Marion and the blondies.

thinking of you right now....
Hi Lisa, thank you for sharing such a personal part of your life. It is hard to be alone at times, but like you said the memories are not all BAD. Life goes on, one day at a time. Trevor is also dealing with this, aside from cancer he and Jenn have decided to end there relationship. so he has cancer, lost his family, his home, his job, but still this incredible man gets up everyday and faces what is ahead of him. My gramma used to say, "no matter how bad things are, remember someone else has it worse, so get on with it" I am the queen of "feeling sorry for me" but it seems the older I get, the more I am able to accept what is laid before us. We actually all have a path, I am a great worrier, but when all is said and done. We all arrived here with absolutely nothing and we leave the same way, so in between we just do what we can and be happy for what we have. Did any of this make sense? I hope you know that you have support around you. Years ago, my niece left a very abusive relationship and when she finally got out she said to me, "what if no one else wants me?" I said, even if you spend the rest of your life alone, you are worth more than that. Be strong. Love your friend Donna Lee

HI Fancy Pants, here's a vote for ya. Weather is warmer, but raining all day. Could be by tomorrow afternoon, up to 4 inches of rain. That would be like 4 feet of snow, sure glad it 45 degrees out, or we'd be in trouble. Had a great ride/lesson on Paige. Worked on a little pleasure, but mostly horsemanship things. Marissa believes that by really working on my horsemanship buttons with her, it'll help all the pleasure classes. She is just coming along so nice and she's so soft! I wish I could leave her with Marissa for a couple of more months, but with show season coming up soon, it's impossible for me. Love ya, Marion and the blondies.

hi Lisa
We think so much alike, David has a brother in BC, I said go...but for me, I don't want to leave the guys, even to take a day trip, I don't want to leave Zack, our dog, all day alone. We also have 4 cats, so for me, home is my happy place. I have done some travelling years ago, I'm good with that. Here it is Saturday morning 6AM, I just love this quiet time for me...I've been to the barn and Charlie and Sterly have had there buckets, as soon as it is light they can go outside to play in there tiny little muddy paddock. Hopefully the snow will soon be gone and they can stretch there legs in the larger area. The snow "mountain" is about half right now, but still dangerous. Trev is improving daily, thank you God, his next review is April the 12, my mission is to get a few pounds on him before then, wish me luck. Enjoy your weekend, we voted, Love Donna Lee
