We're getting some wonderful rain again today, maybe into tuesday. God's way of making me behave and do inside chores, lol. I got Allie's feet trimmed yesterday and then rode BJ just a little instead of decorating or wrapping the few presents I've gotten. Oh well. Off to work. Hope you have a great sunday.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. First let me say, my email at 6:15 had me in tears. We are all sorry to hear of the loss of Charlie Bubbles, beloved equine partner of Donna Lee! Our Prayers go out to her! Just a few weeks ago the loss of Dear Cheryl's beloved Nugget, and now Charlie! So sad! On a lighter side, I did sell 4 items today at the tack sale netting $113.00. So that made me feel good. Back over tomorrow and see if I can't see a few more things. It was cold in the indoor and after a few hours I was feeling it, know to use my BOT long johns for sure tomorrow! Got home by 3:30 and gave the horses some hay for lunch and fresh water. Now in the house trying to defrost! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi everyone! Sorry I have been away so long. I haven't been on since my retirement, I think. I know I've missed out on a lot of news. Hope all is well with each of you and your horses. Sorry to hear that HC will be closing down. I do enjoy hearing all the horse stories. My heard and I are doing well. Just been catching up on a lot of work that needed to be done. I am loving the extra time with my herd. Praying you all have a blessed holiday. Leaving votes all around.

Well, Mike always tells me not to help out "these" people, but I just remind him what the Bible says, and guess who has the higher power with me....I also found a bunch of blankets/quilts/pillows for this woman with the 2 boys, because I know she lived in her uncle's house before, and told me how cold it was upstairs.
Off to cut fire wood again, as soon as my son, Joe get done hunting, musket season now. I ordered my small gifts to each kid, mostly grandkids, but a few others I know too. ID with either their pet's name, like Sadie, loved by Dominic, with a paw charm. Each one is personalized, Richard was the only one I was not sure about because he has a turtle....and she even did one up with that idea. Some get bracelets, (girls) and older ones get keychain style. I order one for each one of my horses sort of a ID for their halters or picture. Real neat and will send you a picture by facebook. She is a local chafter so glad to support her.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Well another deceiving day weather wise. Started out sunny and that fell to pieces! But I did get hay to the barn. Got them lunged! And got the truck all packed with my goodies that are going to be for sale at the tack sale at Marissa's! Refilled all the boxes in the garage with dry wood, so there's a couple of days supply again if it gets to raining hard. Which they are talking about now for next Tues thru Thurs! With a mix of snow! Not happy! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

It is that time of year that it is hit or miss on riding. I thought we may be able to ride Sunday afternoon but now that it is Friday it is looking like that won't happen :( I am off work the next 3 days. Deacon has his annual shots and checkup on Monday. I will remind them to split the shots to make it less hurtful and keep him from being sore on one side. I dewormed him on Wednesday and he had his hooves trimmed last week so he is good to go when ever this weather allows us some riding time. Have a wonderful weekend ♡

Didn't quite get time to ride yesterday, the daylight is just so short. But I did spend time with them during feedings and brought BJ up for a hoof trim. Their hooves change so much when the weather goes from dry to wet, so they all will need some attention.
Well, off to work. Hope you have a great friday. Take care

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Well it started out sunny for a couple of hours and got nasty then! Cloudy and windy and the temps were dropping. So a trip to Wally World grocery shopping was first. Then lunged Paige and did showmanship with her. Lunged Indy and we played then, he loves to play chase with me. And he's very gentle and won't charge ya. Hayed and watered them for lunch. No walk for Honey, just some playtime in the indoor also. She can run like the wind! Tomorrow I'll move stuff I want to sell from the old trailer and the tack room and house to the truck for Sat & Sun tack sale at Marissa's! Hopefully make a few bucks! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

I was impressive with Hobby Lobby, somewhat....but over whelming. So many choices. I had fun reading all the signs and posters. I was looking for chains to put some horse charms on for Christmas gifts. Found a cute little deer/buck ornament for Dominic, since he was the only one to get a buck this season. To do the work on Mikey's denture, would take 4 hours, so went to Farm and Fleet, and filled nearly all the animals Christmas list. Grizzly got canned cat food, Sadie wanted more treats and of course more dog food, Shadow got a soft bed, that I used coming home. Whisper, Willow and Mistit got more treats. Brought mineral blocks for cows and one for new Highlanders and Jack. Menards next stop and Mike got some things he wanted, and I brought fuzzy socks for any littler (teenagers) girls that I know....they will also get a necklace with horse charm. Picked up decks of kids card games, for any younger kids that stop here. See when Mikey was home, all his friends would come here, well, most of them have kids that came along, so now they stop to tell us Merry Christmas and I always have a little gift for kids and a box of homemade cookies and candies for them to take home. If I see them in a store, they always stop and chat and ask about the horses and animals....my reward....even if I never remember what their names are. They grow up so fast and change in looks.

Yep, busy with shopping, wrapping, cards, parties, etc between now and the end of the year.
So you think you've started a new Thanksgiving tradition of having it at your house? That'll be cool.
How are the classes coming along? When will you get a break for Christmas?
Not much new here since I worked yesterday. We had a strong line of fast-moving storms come through last evening with several tornadoes in the area. We were okay, but I had to detour coming home due to downed power lines and trees. Sure needed the rain though. They've finally lifted the burn ban. I think the rains spent a good while along the Tennessee mountains where those wildfires were so bad, so that's good.
Well, hope you have a great thursday. Take care.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Well not much happened today either! Rain all day and very heavy at times! And of course those times where just when I would go to the barn to try to get to the indoor. Scraped that idea. Did a spa day, hayed and watered them. Honey got lot's of mommy and me time today for sure in the house! Yesterday we got 1.5 inches of rain and I bet at least that again today. Will check the rain gauge in the morning after it stops sometime during the wee hours of the night. Supposed to be sunny tomorrow! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi & a vote,
Well, we've reached the end of November, so it will be Rocky's last day as HOTM. He doesn't care, so long as he gets more carrots. As we head into December, we wish everyone will have happy December holidays. And a new HOTM will be arriving. Well, so long as HC keeps working!

Going to take our son Mikey, to dental lab this morning and will get to go to Hobby Lobby, so I can start and finish the rest of my projects. Have to be there at 7:30 so up very early to do chores in the dark. I sure hope my studip guineas made it threw the night. They would not go into the shed last night.

Glad it all went well. Looked like your family had a good time. Yeah, it's hard to find horse time around the holidays.
We did wind up getting some rain yesterday which was much appreciated. Didn't ride, of course, but had a fun day Christmas shopping with my niece and daughter.
Well, off to work. Hope you have a great wednesday.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Hope that you get out this weekend to see Koot and take a ride! Well it rained cats and dogs today! So this morning, Honey and I headed downtown to fuel up the truck and pick up my allergy prescription at the drugstore. Don't ya think, I get all the way to the gas station, get out and go to give him my credit card, only to find out I forgot to put my money clip in my work jeans. So all the way back to the farm and then back downtown, Honey was happy, extra ride in the truck! Got home and it's still pouring, so made some Sesame Chicken in the crock pot, not bad! Didn't do anything with the horses, as the rain and nasty weather made my ear act up. So hayed and watered them and back to the house and Honey and I crashed in bed for a couple of hours! Lazy day!

Looks like spring outside, with all the mud. Let chickens and guineas out, they have not gotten to go out, not that they even wanted to with the rain, wind and cold/snow. Steers and Whisper, Willow and Mistic returned to the big field, if not for eating, just for a good gallop. They have lots of room to run inside their winter and the pen I put them in at night, but with that many hooves also too much mud right now.

Hope things are going well after the rush of Thanksgiving. Missed getting on HC yesterday, it was down every time I checked on it.
I had a good ride on Allie sunday. I rode again yesterday but the horses were on edge, guess they could feel the storm front coming. So I got off while I had a head left and lunged her around briskly. I was proud of her though, that's the first time I've been on her while the buddy horse I have to have in the riding ring for moral support (in this case BJ) was running around her bucking and galloping, and she didn't try too hard to join in on the play.
Well, we had 2 days of rain predicted. As usual, it's parting as it gets to us, so we might get a little, but not much and it'll be gone in an hour or 2. Do I sound like I'm having a pity party? After 3 months of almost no rain, to finally have a big storm headed our way and still not get hardly anything is just too disappointing. The fires reached Gatlinburg, TN last night, burning up cottages, hotels, and homes, and they had to evacuate, which is horrible. We desperately need days of real rain.
Well, on that note, need to get the day started. Hope you have a great tuesday.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Well not much got done today at all. Freezing rain when I went to feed, that was fun walking down to the barn in! Slip sliding away! LOL! Didn't do anything other than serve up lunch to the horses. That left ear was a tad bit better, but still had the shooting pains in it and some congestion coming from the left side. Figured stay in and stay warm and get over this! Hopefully will be feeling better tomorrow and can lunge them. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Did your Mom get to go out for Black Friday shopping?? I stayed home like a good girl and cut and wrapped venison. Will make sausage later. Scraps we feed to the chickens and the clean up the bones. Dogs do not get them unless they are cooked first. But Mikey's girl friend went to Farm and Fleet and I did get 4 bags of "All purpose grain", for 4.25 a 50 pound bag. Sort of a sweet feed, which will help the new Scottish Highlander bull put on some weight. He never had grain before, and sort of thin for our winters, the heifer was like that too, when she came. Backbone sticks out a bit and no fat to speak of. He is getting alot more friendlier, at least comes to me and stands about 5 feet away. His name is Harry and hers Harriet, other calf is Jack.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a vote for ya. Well cloudy and misty day all day, but at least it did hit 42 degrees! Did get them to the indoor for exercise. Paige got lunged and showmanship work. Indy got lunged. Bullseye got free time. Shame I feel like crap! I really wanted to ride. Guess last weekend's near 70 degrees on Sat and waking up to almost 2 inches of snow on Sunday wasn't good for my sinuses! Plue the other morning working Paige in the indoor in 35 degree temps with no scarf on to protect my ears and breathing. Now I'm paying for it. Left ear is aching like crazy along with stuffy left side of nose and chills on and off! This too shall pass I hope! Otherwise Monday it's a call to the doctors office!

Wow, even have Thanksgiving dishes all done up. Have a few more minutes now to send out votes. We had 10 for dinner yesterday. Mikey's girl friend made the turkey, which was home raised. Other than the buns, everything was raised in my garden, at least veggies, and all the pickles veggies. No I did not harvest wheat to make the buns. :). Surprised that the pumpkins pie tasted good, but I did cheat and buy bought pie crust....I did practice making crust, but even the dogs would not eat them, Jack the calf loved them. So the hardest part of making the pie, was making the round pie crust into a square cake pan.....but I made it do. Had a couple of guest, just friends of one or two of my sons, who had no where to go, so just tell them come along.

Hi Koot & Danya, here's a Happy Thanksgiving Day vote for ya. Well it was a weather wise nasty cold rainy day! So of course just as I went to go and get ready to work with the horses, the heavens opened up. No way. Gave them treats and said see ya a couple for lunch! Eileen called to wish me a Happy T-Day and asked what I was doing. Said making crock pot Taco Chicken for dinner. You're not eating that today, get over here at 3 pm or so. So I went to Eileen's with her family, her daughter is Kendra that takes care of Bullseye and Mo when I'm away. So they are like family. Had good time and good food. Now back on the diet and away from the carbs and fats! Honey was all over me when I got home, since I rarely leave her alone and go out other than shopping! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.
