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.

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!

-Buddy & Jasmine

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.

vote here too...
Sterly is doing really good, as Cheryl said, these old mares with Cushings disease will never regain topline and hip line weight, but the important thing is to have a good rib cover... Sterly is lookin' good and I hope you can all see the difference from one month to the next. No actual pounds gained yet, but remember they have to gain from the inside out...her appetite is excellent and her attitude is young... she is soooo shiny and she has shed out very well on her own, love my old girl. Love and a vote Donna Lee

I hope you are doing ok =)
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!

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!
