How We Met

Levy was a rescue and was so sweet and gentle we just fell in love with him. He is like a big teddy bear. He never spooks or bucks and has perfect manners I don't why anyone would ever hurt such beautiful animals. They only want love and attention. Levy is our 6 year olds best little friend when he sees her he winnies nickers and licks her face, and when she grooms him he will stand perfectly still until she is finished. I am so glad that he is still able to trust humans and know that we would never do anything to hurt him. We love him very much.

*** Hi everyone, It's Joey, Ginger, & Angel Betsy. Most of you already know, but in case you don't Shari, Daisy's Mom who was active on HC for over 2 years now has rheumatoid arthritis which took away her ability to type. She hasn't been able to blog for several months. I want to Thank the Ladies of the Angel Crew and all the friends from HC & DC that supported Levy. It was a surprise to see him as Top Horse in Aug. since we weren't running till Sept. Together we made an amazing girl named Daisy and her Mom, Shari so happy when they saw Daisy's Boy as HOTM. Shari said Daisy had tears in her eyes and ran out to tell Levy he is HOTM. Love you guys!

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!!!!!

Doc said if Whiskey showed any signs of discomfort at that time to call right away. He is only allowed coastal hay and his feed for now. I started turn out Sunday 4/27and increase 10 min. intervals every couple of days. Now, here is what happened. We have been doing slow turn out for a while (over 8 weeks) and we left them out Wednesday night 4/09. Coleton (my son) had brought us some hay that we haven't fed before. It was pretty green but didn't think much about it. Doc says it is the combination of that hay and turned out that did this-but mainly that hay bale. The other horses are fine and Doc said because he is such an easy keeper/age that he just gorged himself...now all I can do is ask for prayers for my baby and a lot of positive thoughts. He is really doing so well from what I can see ♥ Today I give the last dose of bute and the next few days will really let me know how he is.
Even through the hard times of the Depression and World War II years, Sam Tuttle kept a sizable herd of thirty to forty horses on his farm. Sam is considered as the man most responsible for the survival of the Rocky Mountain Horse. TOBE was the primary Rocky Mountain stallion used in Sam's breeding program. In the 1950s, many people were selling their stallions, and the horse population in general was rapidly declining due to tractors and farm machinery available. Even so, breeders remembered TOBE, and he was always in demand for stud service. People brought their mares to TOBE from several different states, and he was as famous in Estill County as MAN O' WAR was in Lexington, Kentucky. Everyone who rode TOBE fell in love with him. TOBE's offspring were always in demand, and Sam never had any trouble selling all the Rocky Mountain Horses he could produce.

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.

weekend phone votes ♡
When I got home from work Friday (4/11/14-2 weeks ago) I noticed Whiskey was walking slow and didn't seem right. He has NEVER been sore after a trim but I thought this could be a first time...Brent (my farrier) had been out that morning and put shoes on Deacon and trimmed the other 2. As I watched I knew something was wrong and put a call into Doc Edwards (he specializes in horses only). I then gave Whiskey bute because he then kept laying down and I could tell he was in pain. I watched him drink water, I saw him pea & poop, I listened for guts sounds in his tummy so I knew he wasn't colicing. Doc finally called he wanted Whiskey in early Saturday morning 4/12/14. He assured me that giving the bute was fine and it was the right thing to do. He also knew how upset I was and again assured me that I had caught this in time but couldn't tell me anything until he saw him the next morning. Yes, founder is what it is…..Phone votes over the weekend, his story will continue Monday 4/28…..
The Rocky Mountain Horse Association's (RMHA) rendition of the history of the breed states there was a gaited colt brought from the Rocky Mountain region of the United States to the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains in eastern Kentucky around 1890. He was referred to as "the Rocky Mountain Horse" by the local Kentucky people because of the area of the country from which he had come. He is the horse credited for the start of the Rocky Mountain Horse breed. Little is known about this foundation stallion, but oral history indicated he was chocolate-colored with flaxen mane and tail, and he possessed a superior gait. The stallion was bred to the local Appalachian saddle mares in a relatively small geographical area and the basic characteristics of a strong genetic line continued. This prized line of horses increased in numbers as years went by, and these are the horses known today as Rocky Mountain Horses.

Whiskey says Thank You for your support!
Whiskey has a fast walk that is like the true gait of a Rocky Mountain but it isn’t as pronounced like the other RM horses I see, it’s a little different. He has the smoothest gallop and run. He has the energy to go go go. He will go no matter how long you want to ride-his battery never seems to run out but that is the breed, again they started out as a utility horse!! Whiskey stays to himself; he doesn’t really hang with the other 2, only once in a while. Deacon picks him as a favorite for a day or 2 then they separate and Rocket is Deacons main herd mate. With a heavy heart and a lot of thought I have decided to change the rest of my HOTM run to include what happened with Whiskey starting the 11th of April. I will still include the RMH tidbits =)
The families of eastern Kentucky who owned these horses were not wealthy and could not afford to spend a lot of money on the upkeep of their horses. Unlike Kentucky Thoroughbreds that were typically owned by wealthy people, the gaited horses of eastern Kentucky received no special care, and as a result, most of the weak ones did not survive. These horses withstood the harsh winters of eastern Kentucky with minimal shelter, and they were often fed "fodder", a kind of rough silage. Some had to exist on whatever sustenance they could find. So, like deer, they ate the bark off trees when they were hungry. Only the horses that survived these extreme conditions lived to reproduce their kind.
Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

I ware my strong glasses when using my phone!!!!!
Whiskey’s mane & tail change colors several times in the year by going lighter then darker. His body color changes as well. He truly loves his bath time and grooming, he trailers well in any type I load him in, and will load without heisting at all. He is also my bareback horse. Perfect back for it so if I don’t feel like putting the saddle on I can always just get myself up on him and go at any time. He is the type that will come to you every time from the field or anywhere. I guess that’s the treat hound in him lol.
During the late 1800s and early 1900s, the rural inhabitants of eastern Kentucky considered these saddle horses to be horses for all seasons. They were sure-footed, easy-gaited, and the mount of choice for postmen, doctors, and traveling preachers. People used them for plowing small fields, herding cattle, traveling through the steep and rugged trails, and driving the buggy to church on Sunday. Horses were not a luxury, but a necessity. Every horse had to earn its keep and be extremely versatile. It was not a matter of having horses around to use every once in a while; these horses were worked hard, every day. At the end of the day they were exhausted, but possessed enough stamina to continue on, day after day.

Celebrating Easter with love, hugs & votes 4 all!
✞ Picking up from yesterday about him tossing his head about bugs. Sometimes I can make a pony tail in his fore lock and that helps a lot. I think he sees his hair sometimes and over reacts, big ol’ treat hound! As soon as we get under the trees on those trails he just stops tossing his head and settles right back into his awesome self. I will add Rocky Mountain facts to my blogs for the rest of our HOTM run. I hope you enjoy them =)
The history of the Rocky Mountain Horse from 1890 to the latter part of the 1900s carries little or no documentation and few facts that can be proven beyond the shadow of doubt. Everyone who personally witnessed the breed's beginnings (back to the 1800s) is deceased, and we have been left with only verbal history passed down from generation to generation. Thus, all that can be recorded at this point in time are the stories recollected by living descendants. Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

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!

Today Whiskey is bowing on the 1 year anniversary of the West explosion. God bless our beautiful town our motto is “After West, forever forward”. God bless our town and God bless America! I continued to work with him and every now and then I still put the O ring on him and to keep him sharp. I am not all that good with all kinds of bits. I have not mastered the bit world-well, probably not a lot of horse things but I am on my journey and heading that way. I can ride Whiskey & Deacon both with just halters on but have never tired bridle-less yet. Another goal of mine after I finish getting my round pen larger and have a set up where it will work for us. Whiskey & I continued to push forward and of course everyday he got better and better. We were learning each other and I loved every minute of it. Phone votes tomorrow, I will get back to our story on Saturday. Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

it going to be another nice afternoon!
The 1st few times I rode Whiskey my arms were wore out and tired. I was thinking “man what in the world”. He did not and could not Neck rein. He was very hard in the mouth, no flex in his neck but Karla & Tim told me he needed that kind of work. Tim felt he didn’t ride him in collection and so on. He was Tim’s first horse. We would get under the canopy of the trees on the trails and he would do great with my seat aids which I was happy about. That is how I ride him, with my seat and leg aids. I guess we all are supposed to do that RIGHT!!!! I then started planning my next few months of teaching him to neck rein. I just went back to the beginning and put him in an “O” ring snaffle and took it from there. Every day his personality would shine and he entertained Cliff & me with his antics! Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

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!

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!

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!

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!

whiskey thanks you for yoursupport on his HOTM run
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!

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!

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 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 Daisy N Levy, 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.

Hi Daisy N Levy, 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 Daisy N Levy, 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 Daisy N Levy, here's a vote for ya. Well it's back to cold and colder and snow maybe moving in for tuesday! Lazy day today, did a bunch of stuff around the house, then just when I'm ready to go and get Indy and Bullseye to the indoor, my farrier texted me and said he's at the other farm to shoe Paige. UGH, like a five minute notice you were coming today! I contacted Marissa, who was in south jersey, she said she just got the same text, don't worry, Kayla will hold Paige for him. And he can wait for his check in the mail! Okay with me, cause I really wanted to take care of the homeboys! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondies.

Hi Daisy n Levy, here's a vote for ya. What a gorgious day out! It hit 62 degrees, up here with sun! But tomorrow it's back to winter and tues and wed could be snow! Changed Harley's bandage this morning, it's looking really good. 16 more days and off with the bandage and out with the sutures. Marissa started out with pole work for Paige today and then says, I'll be right back stay here. Okay, do you want me to hold the mare. No, we'll be right back. OMG, she came back in the English saddle and bridle! Got her first video of all english, except the saddle pad, but that's okay. Only thing that thru her off, was the leg right there on her sides. But shes got the moves. Have a picture up on FB of her, and hopefully will load the video for this weeks video! Got home and got Indy out, he's just a little puffy yet, but totally sound on it. Ran like a nut case in the indoor! Love ya, Marion and the blondies.

Hi Daisy N Levy, here's a vote for ya. What a great day today. Harley's vet called late this morning, results are in of his biopsy and he's clean and no cancer cells at all! It possible was an embedded hair folical that caused this whole big cyst tumor thing! Not it's just keep him from eating the bandages off again and suturs out on April 7th. Went to see and ride Paige. Awesome day there too! She was super for Marissa and what a great lesson in horsemanship patterns I had! Paige is going to be an awesome pattern horse! Got home and rested, didn't sleep well after Harley eating his bandage last night and me trying to replace it and worrying. So it was major crash time for me! Besides it was only 31 degrees out today, chilly and windy! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondies.

Hi Daisy & Levy, here's a vote for ya. WOW, it was a high of 53 degrees today, of course tomorrow will be a lot less and guess what, snow maybe sunday night into monday! But it looks to be staying south for the higher amounts. Anyhow, Harley is doing well. Went to see Paige and Marissa was away giving a clinic in south jersey. So I lunged Paige and then did showmanship with her. Kinda windy and the one end of the indoor the doors were banging and clanging! She didn't even care, everyone else was trying to escape! Proud of my little girl! Got home and got Indy and Bullseye out to the indoor for some playtime. They enjoyed that! Snow is really melting now, I can see my outdoor arena and even some of my pasture land! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondies.

SPECIAL HELLO TO YOU AND YOUR MOM,
We left a rainy, cold it's going to return to snow vote, even the weather girl on TV last night said she just wished she could give a good forecast for a change...Looks like a "stay inside and get groomed day" their little paddock was starting to melt, I'm just glad we had good run off, so far no flooding in the barn. The next few days are below freezing again, so we have some ice, not good. I'm so jealous of all of you that can ride. Trevor is in the S L O W recovery stage. His great attitude is back, he said he is very anxious to eat solid food again...not just yet, one day at a time, thanks for all the prayers, we know it is not OVER yet...have a great weekend, Love Donna Lee

Hi Daisy & Levy, here's a vote for ya. Harley did pick at his bandage once last night, but today with the help of some bitter apple horse spray, it left it alone. I was gone about 4 hours again by Paige and came home and all was well. OMG, Paige was ridden in an english bridle, snaffle bit like her work one and she looks so cute in the english headstall! Marissa shortned my western saddles stirrups so she could really post up a storm, mare was good. Got the tail end on video! But Marissa left the bridle on, but worked her for 10 minutes without reins! Love my Mare! Thanks everyone for the Prayers for Harley and all the votes for Paige in her run for HOTM! Love ya, Marion and the blondies.

HI Daisy & Levy, here's a vote for ya. Hit an all time high of 62 degrees today, sleet and freezing rain tomorrow, go figure! WTH! What a day of running and runnings to do things, and now in 15 minutes I have to leave for an emergency visit to the doggie vet with Harley. Prayers please, a sore on his let has gone wild in two days and the last time I went through this, it was mast cell cancer on Truman in 1995! I'm so scared! Postponing feeding till around 8 pm tonight, gave hay and leaving shortly! However, Paige was very good in her lesson today, did a lot of trotting and some cantering, gearing up for English with my trainer this spring! Love ya, Marion and the blondies.
PS, home from the vets, Harley is having surgery Wed morning, have to be there by 8:30am. It's diffenitily a tumor that has gone crazy in a week's time and he wants to get it out now! I'm a wreck!

Hi Daisy n Levy, here's a vote for ya. Another sunny warm day, only up to 38 up here at my farm, but a lot of compressing and melting going on. Slow and steady, no floods that way. Didn't get the message that Marissa closed the barn today due to the slab slides off the indoor and barn roof. But still had to go and drop off Paiges new Ceramic No Bow bandages and I also did a two hour magnetic therapy treatment on her R/H. I hand walked her in the indoor for about 30 minutes, only 3 slides while we were in there. She was good. But the major one went about an hour earlier, it was over 80 feet long and about 3 foot deep and 4 inches thicks of ice and snow, sounded like a mack truck hitting a brick wall! OMG! Got home and got Indy and Bullseye to my indoor for some playtime. A little muddy and soupy, but I found a drier way, thru the snow and we got there just fine. Love ya, Marion and the blondies.

Hi Daisy & Levy, here's a vote for ya. What a tease today was! Weather wise that is, it hit almost 50 degrees and was just so nice out! Melted off lot's of snow, of course heavy running water, but hey, less snow! Went to see and ride Paige. Now mind you, metal roof on the indoor and no ice/snow stops. So a few slab slides going on. One caught Marissa off guard but she's a pro at it. And then in my lesson, and it's on film, while loping, one let's go, Paige does a little step to the left, I plant my outside leg on her and lifted her back and never missed a beat or stride at the lope. Impressed myself too! LOL! Right hind at just a slight swell to it today. But my new Ceramic No Bow wraps came today, so we'll start treatment tomorrow with them. Love ya, Marion and the blondies.

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS:
"Nature looks dead in winter because her life is gathered into her heart. She withers the plant down to the root that she may grow it up again fairer and stronger. She calls her family together within her inmost home to prepare them for being scattered abroad upon the face of the earth." (Hugh Macmillan, "Rejuvenescence," The Ministry of Nature, 1871)

FrEeZing Vote from Fancy.

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS:
"He who marvels at the beauty of the world in summer will find equal cause for wonder and admiration in winter.... In winter the stars seem to have rekindled their fires, the moon achieves a fuller triumph, and the heavens wear a look of a more exalted simplicity." (John Burroughs, "The Snow-Walkers, 1866)

Here is a snowy vote for you. Looks like by this morning, we got about 2 to 3 inches of snow!

Have a safe and blessed evening,
Love Fancy and Frances
