How We Met

Life: One moment a beautiful dream...the next, you watch in disbelief as your heart is torn out.

I just got home from laying to rest Freedom's Skye, better known to her many fans as Skye. My loving horse of 2 1/2 years passed away after a freak accident this morning. It is great comfort to know that she didn't suffer near as long as I will without her.

Skye, I hope you know how much I dearly loved you, as I could have never put it into words that you would understand.

I had been looking for a horse for a long time. A good friend called me up one
day, and asked if I was still looking for a horse. She said her friend had a mare
that she needed to sell quickly. My friend bought her and told me that I could buy
her when I had the money. The first time I saw Skye, a palomino QH mare, she
was not too happy to see another human. No matter, she was pretty much my
dream horse, and I really wanted her. I bought her on February 25, 2011. I think I
was one of the happiest people on the earth. It would be a couple of months
before I would get to have that dreamed of first ride on my horse. In late May, I
would get that ride after a couple of days of training. I would go on to spend a
great part of the summer working with her daily. By mid-august, I was beginning
to see my dream come true in a stocky, little palomino mare. Skye was starting to
listen to me, and was willing to trust a human to take care of her. Over Labor Day
weekend, I took Skye to a the local county fair. We had a rough start to a couple
days of showing, but we came out of it with some ribbons. I think we both learned
a lot from it. Things where going good until October, when we had a week long
battle with colic. It was a long and scary, but she made it through okay. I am
looking forward to what the coming year will bring.

Hey there! We haven't checked in for a while! I have been busy with work! I still have two jobs, although the one at the tack store has turned into one day a week (Shipment day!!! So I get to see all the new exciting things!!,) The job at the barn is awesome, I don't really do much with the horse care of things, since it is a self care barn, but I still do some things for some people. I do enjoy it a lot, and I know my boss there likes me a lot.

I FINALLY moved Buddy there today!! (There's a waiting list, and I've been on it since January of this year!) Buddy was a bit mad at me, since at the place I had him at I had allowed him field access, which was a bad move on my part for trying to catch him, but he enjoyed it so much that I didn't really mind it. He had time to relax and be a horse as some people would call it. He is in the quarantine side of the barn for 7-10 days, and then he moves over to his stall for good. He was not happy a boy when I brought him into the barn this morning, but he has since calmed down quite a bit.

In a few days I will start him back on his Step 5 feed with a bit of beet pulp and his glucosamine and hoffmans mineral supplements. I also got some GNF (Gut Nutrition Formula) from my boss at the store, and she offered me some magnesium supplement Buddy with as it's a calmer and he may need it.

I hope everything has been going good with everyone. I haven't really had the chance to check in that much. I've just signed on to keep my points from disappearing! I do love reading all the comments I have gotten while I have been away!

The rain came, Tuesday Heavy rain, heavy wind, lots of booming thunder, hail, a funnel cloud in the next town over and a twister in Phoenix. Thankful we didn't lose power. We needed the rain. Sadie's corral is a mucky mess. Rick doesn't want her out, because she gets into things. He had her put up when I was at work. I let her back out after I got home. He's going to crap and throw me in it. Lol. Leaving you all lots of love and votes.

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. I got to ride Copper yesterday afternoon. I walked,trotted and loped bareback. He has a bumpy trot so it's not the most comfortable. I also worked on his side passing. Which he is starting to get down. He's starting to grow his winter coat! Happy Monday everyone and a vote! ~Copper~

Happy first day of Fall everyone! Leaving y'all a late good morning vote! I rode Copper this morning in his English saddle. Then after I was done me and my sister lunged him over a jump and he jumped it! I'm very proud of my good boy! We plan to lunge him over it again tomorrow and then possibly Friday with someone on his back. Hope all y'all have a wonderful first day of Fall! Love and a vote. ~Copper~

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.

Not much riding time this week, seems like I am alway fixing or building pens and pastures. Traded two male guinea hens, for feed yesterday, hopefully, we both felt good about the trade. I try to trade when ever I can, because if I sell chicks, or keets, I use the money to buy more grain.....usually horses, eat oats, or cracked corn, is what chickens get too. They are free roaming, only locked up in the coops at night, for their own protection.

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).

on winning horse of the day. I'm sorry I'm so late! I haven't been on in awhile. You may have been wondering where I've been.

I'm sorry I disappeared but I've been so busy with school. Yes, I'm back in school. I'm doing online college and I'm studying to be a Vet Tech. It's so much fun but lots and lots of work. I don't have a minute for myself and I also work full time. It's been pretty crazy. I've never taken time off HC since it first started but I just couldn't keep up.

I got a 2 week break between summer and autumn classes but during break I'm super busy catching up on work, plus we're remodelling. I just got invited to participate in their Honors Program which is wonderful but it means even more work so I'm not going to be spending much time on here. I'll try to get back to hotd congrats and votes though.

Thanks for sticking by me! I love my HC friends! Leaving a vote for you and kisses from Pippin.

I can't believe summer is almost over!
Spangle has been worked more frequently recently. He has been doing well. I walked him around under saddle two weeks ago.
Rose and I had a dressage show this past Saturday. We did really well.We got all 60s(that is really good). We did all three Intro level test as well as equitation. We improved in every class! We had a lot of fun.:)
Hope all is well with you. Left a vote!

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.

Here's a quick vote from Buddy!

I went and seen Buddy the other day when I had the day off from work, and let me tell you, it was much needed after the morning that I had! He was good to catch, much to my surprise, he walked right up to me. I got a few pictures and videos of him. I was going to try and ride him bareback, but he just wouldn't co-operate, so he just got lunged more instead. He's got a few teeth scrape marks on him, so I didn't want to put a saddle on him just yet. I know he's apparently not the biggest fan of my saddle anyways, so I plan on getting one that fits him better when I have more money to get a saddle fitter out!

That being said, I got a second job! There is a place here in town called Evergreen Park, and it is basically a race track, public "self serve" barn, and that sort of thing. The lady who keeps the barn clean and arena groomed needed an assistant to help her close at night, so I will be doing that. I can get 40 hours a week there if I wanted, and both she, my boss at Greenhawk are flexible for when I work. I am so excited to have extra money. Not only for Buddy, but maybe just maybe, and this is news to everyone here! I maybe able to get the little egyptian arabian mare that I have fallen for, she keeps popping up on my Facebook all the time, I really need to win the lottery so I can buy her, and soon!!

We hope you have been having a good summer so far and that you have been spending a lot of time with your horses!

A Vote for You!!
Good Morning vote from my girls. Hopefully, today, I will get a few more things done, well, more than every cat and kitten needing their tummy's rubbed, dog's needing a ball and stick to be thrown to them, flowers needing to be smells, making up the bunnies favorite mix of corn, graham crackers, saltines, and cheerios cereal and spending time feeding her one at a time. Not to mention the girls need their hair brushed and with the rain last night, I am sure they are muddy, so it might just be bath time when it gets hot outside. I just might find time to make my husband his meals.....might not promising anything.
