How We Met

Monday, January 13, 2015 A nice young lady took Fancy home to live with her.

My husband purchased Fancy for my early 2009 birthday present.




"A horse is the projection of people's dreams about themselves - strong, powerful, beautiful - and it has the capability of giving us escape from our mundane existence." (Pam Brown)

Dropping by with an early morning vote. Darby is doing great, he loves all the grass in our pasture. Him and Copper have six acres, with trees and a pond. Hope all is well, one more day and it's September! The weekend was busier than usual, didn't have a chance to ride. But today or tomorrow I will. I think Darby likes the break. Last time I rode we did barrels. He lopes great, but his turns aren't the tightest. But we'll work on it. Other than that he's pretty good. But he still loves to jump. He actually pulls the bit to line up and jump. It's too funny. But I'm glad I found something he enjoys. Well have a blessed Monday, love always and a click on your horseshoe!!!

A storm came through, Thursday. We had some wind and only a little rain. Cities, to the east of us, got flooded and 9,000 people lost power. Lightning struck a palm tree and caused a fire. There were dust storms, too. Thankful we were spared. Love always and a vote.

Galloping by with some votes! Friday we gave Katie a bath. She loved it until I washed her face haha I just told her tough and deal with it since she can't seem to stay out of the tarweed! The wind changed directions on Saturday and brought smoke from all the wildfires on the east side of Oregon and Washington over the mountains and into the Valley where I live. It's a minor annoyance, but I know it's worse where all the brave firefighters are working so I don't complain. Instead I put up a prayer for their safety and for some rain without thunderstorms. We went to the NW Art & Air Festival they had this weekend. We got to see lots of beautiful hot air balloons and a nice concert. Today we spent a lazy day sleeping in and school clothes shopping for my daughter (she starts school in 2 weeks).

Come visit me, Katie.

Thank You!
Sorry I haven't blogged in a few days. I had to work on Monday (which is my day off). I wormed the horses on Tuesday. I got Susie's joint supplement in and gave her a double dose. She has been a little stiff since she ran out of her supplement. Wow...that was a lot of rain we had yesterday! Although like most of you, we needed it. Also having some cooler temps here. Enjoy the rest of your week. Left a vote.

Galloping by with some votes! I have been making homemade applesauce and apple crisp with all the apples are trees have given us this year (the ones that fall on the ground go to Katie and her buddies though). And of course the week I need to can the applesauce it's almost 100 degrees out! Can't seem to get any cool weather to stick around. Half my state is on fire it seems! Hopefully soon fall will bring some cooler weather.

Come visit me, Katie.

I am planning on leaving out to ride at the lake at 6:30 am tomorrow morning. I'm so excited, it has been 3 months sense I have rode there. I believe it was the 2nd week of May was the last time due to the flooding we had back then :) It is supposed to stay under 100 and that’s a blessing right now for us, have a wonderful weekend everybody and every horse <)__~

I bought Freedom 45, Wednesday. It's suppose to work as well as Farnam 45. Will be using it, today. So sick of the flies. Excessive heat warning from Wednesday through Thursday. Sadie's mister is on and feels amazing. Even Scruffy is enjoying it. Lol. He loves Sadie. He keeps her company. Thankful for that. I think they keep each other company. Love to all and a vote.

Susie made August HOTM...yip yip hooray!! We will definitely celebrate with the herd. I told my husband Susie gets to do whatever she wants today because she is Queen. Thanks so much HC friends for all your votes and support. We could not have done it without you. Susie is happy to be your Top Horse for this month. I look forward to sharing more of Susie's escapades with our HC friends...because you know there will be more. lol

As you know, Susie survived all her tragic incidents and accidents. Through it all she has been a real trooper. She is the biggest horse in the pasture, but she allows the other horses to boss her around. She does anything you ask of her. She is such a sweet and playful mare. I call Susie my “million dollar” horse. One because of all the time, effort and expense we have invested in her, but the second and main reason is because nobody has enough money to buy Susie. She is worth the world to me. She has found her forever home. She will live here at our pasture for as long as she is alive and she will be laid to rest next to dear sweet Lollipop, when her time ends. She has touched my heart in a way that I can’t explain. I hope she has touched yours in some way through her story. The End.~~~~
Our HOTM run has come to an end. I have enjoyed sharing Susie’s story with you. Thanks to all my HC friends for your support. (Left a big thank you vote)

November 1st Susie is home and once again she is confined to the barn. We are having to change her bandages every 3 to 5 days. This is getting to be a task. Also having to clean out the barn everyday, with her many piles of manure and wet areas. lol Susie was getting bored being confined, away from the herd. So on November 16th, my husband decided to let Susie out of the barn and put her in a small pen area. Well you know Susie…she was not content to be outside, she wanted to be with the herd. So she tried to jump the fence and managed to get her leg caught in the square fencing. Yes, it was her left rear leg. We brought her in, doctored her leg and bandaged it up. She had completely messed up the grafting process. She remained in the barn another 10 days. At this point the wound had pretty much healed but the hair had not regrown. We knew that this was the best we could hope for, so we removed her bandage and set her free.

In answer to the question as to what caused the proliferative lesion, not really sure. Not sure why she got pythium and the other horses at the same pasture didn't. They did say that her immune system could have played a part. The birth of her foal could have weakened her immune system and made her more susceptible to diseases. After all of this we did put her on a supplement for her immune system called Tri-Mune.~~~

The grafting process consisted of taking punch grafts from Susie’s left side of her neck underneath her mane. They took a total of 22 punch grafts and implanted them into the wound bed. Her leg was bandaged and they would wait five days before the bandage could be removed. Susie remained at LSU until October 31st. Halloween day she retuned home after a total of 17 days. Now the fun begins! lol (A click on the horseshoe)

Almost at the end of our HOTM run...yay! Keep the votes coming and thank you.~~~

Susie was going to have to return to LSU to have skin grafts done. The wound would not completely heal without having the grafts done. They needed the wound to start healing first and then after it reached a certain point, they were going to implant the skin grafts into the wound. She returned to LSU on October 15th. However the wound bed was not ready for the grafting, so she stayed there and on October 22nd they preceded with the grafting process. (Voted)

My goodness! Horses are so smart. I've noticed that Sadie sometimes has what looks like dried drops of water on her back. Monday, she filled her mouth with water and tossed it on her back. How cool is it that she knows how to cool herself off? I don't know if this is something horses normally do, or if she was inspired by being hosed down or cooling off in the sprinkler. Just amazing! So thankful for the wonderful things we learn from our four legged loved ones. Love always and a vote.

The next day October 25th, a surgical excision of the lesion was done. Preliminary results were not consistent with pythium. However a culture was taken and sent off for testing. The initial diagnosis was an ulcerative and proliferative lesion on the lateral aspect of left rear pastern. After the surgery was done Susie remained at LSU for 9 days, where she was confined to a stall and her bandages changed every 3 days. She was sent home on October 2nd. We were told to keep her confined to her stall. However we separated the barn to give her two stalls and the middle isle, where we placed a round hay bale for her to eat. We also had to change her bandages every 3 days. This again was just like when she had her head wound. It is very difficult for someone, without any medical background, to apply these bandages. This bandage consisted of six steps (telfa pad, white cling gauze, cotton combine, brown gauze, vetwrap and elasticon). Try putting this on all while the horse is moving. lol Just lucky there were two of us working together. Susie seemed to be enjoying, once again being treated like a queen. Here's a vote.

I'm on late tonight, still on vacation so my schedule is all off. lol~~~~~

O.K. here comes Susie’s drama. It is October 24, 2012, only two months after Lollipop’s death. We bring Susie back to LSU. This time she has a lesion on her left rear pastern. We noticed it a couple of days before and decided this time we would go straight to LSU. We thought for sure that it was the pythium again, it looked just like the lesion on her head. We didn’t even bother to call a vet, we loaded her up and headed to LSU. We knew she would be in great hands. Left a vote.

Just want to say thanks again for all the support and the votes. Keep them coming! Just one more week to go! The story continues...

So what’s going on with Susie all this while…you ask. Don’t worry Susie is laying back just waiting to spring some more of her drama on us. As you can see never a dull moment around here. With a herd of horses, especially like mine, there is always something going on. There may not be a lot of riding activity going on, but there is a heck of a lot of every other activity going on here. lol (Another click on the horseshoe)
