How We Met

I was looking for the perfect horse after having a bad experience with my first horse, Shadow. I searched and searched, then came across Kootenai. I went out to ride Koot and from the minute I sat on him, I just knew he was right. He totally picked me.

$600 plus whatever it cost to replace the control panel for my car's ac. Compressor's leaking. Rick won't agree to a new fence. We're going to have to patch what's left of the one we have. For now, Scruffy's chained during the day and inside at night. Leaving love to all and a vote.

Very busy work weekend. I had to pick Scruffy up from Animal control in Phoenix, today. He was somehow picked up by the police about 20 miles, or so, away. Too hot for him to walk that far. I borrowed Austin car, because the ac in my car isn't working. Hope all are well. Love and a vote.

So much going on. 3 family members have terminal cancer, my mom has alzheimer's, dementia and Parkinson's disease, and with other issues, I haven't felt much like being on HC or Facebook. I leave for Minnesota on the 21st of June. Got that week off approved at work. Now, I'm waiting to hear about the 5th of July through the 17th. I put in for those days to drive to Nevada to see my son and his family, then bring my grandsons home with me for a week's visit. I'm so excited about them moving back to the States and being closer to me. Already planning my first Christmas with them. So wonderful to have something so wonderful to look forward to. Leaving lots of love and a vote.

I think being up at night takes a toll. My work shifts are sometimes 8 hours long with no breaks. Doesn't bother me. I think sitting down for too long and allowing myself to be lazy, feels too good. Looking forward to retiring in 100 years. Lol. Love and a vote.

Just stopping by to say Hello! I have not been on HC in forever I know! What can I say...I am retired but I often wonder how I ever had time to work. lol Of course I am dealing with my mom who has dementia, she is 87. I just don't seem to have any free time lately. My herd is doing great! Susie is sweet 16 now, Gypsy is 18, Lucky is 9 and Ace will turn 6 next month. Pray all of you and your horses are doing well. I will try to do better.

No horsey time. I'm tired on my days off. I'm taking several vitamin supplements, but after working, I'm lazy on my days off. Got chores to catch up on, too. I said I want to retire at 62 and live comfortable one week out of the month. Trips I have to take, so I'll keep working. My uncle in Minnesota has terminal cancer. Saving up for a flight to visit him. Will be taking trips to Las Vegas to visit my son and his family. Eric got orders for Nellis AFB. I'm soooo happy! I haven't seen my grandsons in 6 years. This Christmas will be my first one with them. God answered my prayers and is sending them close to me. Sadie's doing good. Just love her. Love and a vote.

HOme from dr. appointment, hopefully things went good with test. New dr. 3rd one in 2 1/2 yrs. This woman came from her own farm, so easy to talk with. Said she had everything, but a horse and pigs. When I left, I told her, that I would work on getting her a horse.

I went to Tractor Supply, yesterday, because I needed more Freedom 45. They were out, so I bought Celebration Spot On. Don't think it's working well, because Sadie's swinging her tail around like a fan. The flies are pathetic this year. Equine fly spray doesn't help. The vaseline is helping Sissy. Just messy. Bought 2 fly trap bags. Putting those out, today. Dang egg ranch. Love and a vote.

The vaseline helps on Sissy's ears. I put some on Scruffy's nose, because the flies have been attacking him, too. In the 90's. Going to be turning on Scruffy's ac, soon, and hoping he and Sissy will be nice and share the doghouse. Need to build a new doghouse, too. but will patch this one for now. Love to all and a vote.

I bet you are glad tax season is over, or do you still have to work a full day??

We had a nice, but very windy day. Clothes dried in record time, hung big heavy rugs out, (Too heavy for the lines,) hung them over bench and picnic table. Little chicks have their new home well broke in, the found the ashes, which are in one corner, and made good use of dusting their feathers. Would like to think of moving out the younger ones, but we are suppose to get down to a low of around 23, snow and raining all this week. Highs are only around 39-43. I better remember where I put my mittens last. I still am wearing my winter boots, but I never knew they were this heavy, in the winter time.

Sunset is doing great loading in the trailer, but they have put TS in the forecast for Sat, so don't know if they will be able to have the clinic or not.

LET HIM GO...
Finally after 4 years of working and struggling with Bray, I decided that we just were not going to make it as a team. I started to hunt for a new horse for me and a great home for Bray. I settled on a young lady, she was likely an intermediate rider, BUT she would be boarding Bray at a large show barn, she had a coach and tons of support around her. I said my goodbyes. She kept me updated. She was enjoying him, however, three weeks after she got him, on a fresh slightly frosty morning he was turned out into his paddock, which was on a tiny bit of a slope. Apparently he was acting up, go figure...he took a bad step and they think he tore a patellar ligament (stifle). No one noticed his problem until he was brought in that evening, on three legs. Long story short, after consultation with 3 Vets, his prognosis was poor to hopeless, she was advised to let him go. She called me to tell me the news and asked if I'd like to be there, she said he was more my horse than hers. I declined, but I did go to say good bye one last time. We left a vote today.

The all breed fun show was a blast yesterday. The weather was great, no one got hurt or fell off, and there was a good turnout of both spectators and horses. The youth really love their fast horses and the speed events, that's for sure. And I met my first Missouri Fox Trotter in person. It was fun. We had a little rain last night so not sure I'll be able to ride today. If not, there are feet to trim and tomatoes to plant. Hope you have a great sunday.

I REALLY TRIED..
I wanted it to work out with Bray, I sent him away for training, I had coaches come in, bottom line, the horse had my number and he knew I was afraid of him and he played it every time. I got to be NO FUN riding and riding is suppose to be fun. In the end, I decided that I really loved this horse, I just didn't like him much. David didn't like him from day one. What I didn't pick up on until much later was, Sterl May didn't trust him. Look at all the pictures of the three of them together, Sterl May is ALWAYS between Bray and Jackie. I should have listened to her...live and learn I guess, have a great day. we left a vote.

Hi & a Vote,
Today I was packing most of the day, but this evening took Blue & Shiva for a walk by the river. So, that part was relaxing. Tomorrow, back to more packing. Maybe a short ride later in the day.

Had a Norther (cold front) roll in yesterday evening. That's what had the horses so spooked. Thankfully, the really bad TS stayed N of us, they had softball+ size hail. We got a bit of rain, so was only able to halter Sunset, did some flexing, and turned them out.

There are 3 Marsh Tacky events across the state today, which to my knowledge has never happened before and hopefully points to better days for the critically endangered breed. The one closest to me is an all breed fun show, so I'll be helping at that all day, should be fun.
Well, hope you have a great saturday.

THIS IS BRAY.....
Fast forward again, in this segment I have to say, I learned soooo much. We were all settled in and I wanted a horse to ride, so after some looking(not enough) I bought Brazen Virtue, a 3 yr old Standardbred Trotter. I admit now I bought him simply because he was handsome, wrong reason. As a 3 yr old he was a piece of cake but when he turned 5 he became "the Horse Devil" One fresh September morning I was feeding, Bray was full of himself and as I tossed out a couple flakes of hay, I was between him and Jackie, I reached for Jackie's halter to move him away from Bray, and all I remember is seeing his hind leg in the corner of my eye. It happened so fast. He caught me across the forehead, my glasses went flying and when I woke up I couldn't find them, I didn't know what had happened, I crawled to the barn and called David at home, I said, can you come and help me find my glasses? I fell and they are gone? He came right away and of course scooped me up and took me to the emergency room. He said I was in shock, and insisted that I fell, however I looked like something out of a Freddy Kruger movie... 17 stitches and a nasty concussion. They said a split second either way and I likely would have been dead. Take a look at the pictures below and tomorrow I'll tell you what I should have picked up on from the start, it would have saved a lot of trouble. We left a vote.

Drying out, but windy today. For some reason all the horses were spooky this morning, even old Bo. Sunset wouldn't come near me and Cisco was acting antsy. Decided discretion was the better part of valor, and didn't work anybody.

MOVE IN DAY...
Thanks Dayna, I'm just taking it day by day...It took me the better part of a month and a half to get the place ready, once all the "junk" was hauled off and the fencing was done, the barn was cleaned out, we opened the end on to the pasture and made it like a large run in, fenced off a dirt paddock and we were ready. We had water, hydro, shelter and pasture, what more do you need... The day my neighbor mowed the 5 acre pasture for me, I cried, because it was so perfect, she was going to have a home, just 1/4 mile from where we live. My riding instructor "gave" us Jackie, a 7 yr old shetland/mini cross as her companion. They became fast friends. All was well with the world, at least my world.

Kinda hate to hear that the rains have stopped and things are going brown again. Ugh. No such thing as middle ground, is there?
Glad tax season and classes weren't as bad as you thought.
Enjoying your FB pics. So glad you had time to go for a hike with your mom, I'm sure she enjoyed it too.
Not much here. I spent a lot of the day on the lawnmower yesterday, got some of the tomatoes planted (I only put in 5 or 6), and ran a few errands. No time to ride, but it's still a bit damp and slick anyway.
Well, better get ready for work. Have a great friday.
