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.

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!

Whiskey would love your support for 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!

Every other weekend I am not around a computer so I will phone vote as many as possible, also 1 x a week that I will phone vote :) I will start my story with why I have and will ONLY have such well trained and gentle geldings, then I will start how Whiskey & I became each other’s very best friends along with some Rocky Mountain facts about the breed ♡ * Rocky Mountain Horses are slow to mature and do not reach their full size and weight until about five to six years of age. Generally healthy horses, they often live long lives but do have a tendency to be extremely "easy keepers". Care must be taken to keep your Rockies from becoming too overweight, particularly in their later years.* Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

Good Morning my friends, unfortunately it is still winter in Ontario. Minus 16 this morning going up to a high of minus 12 degrees Celsius, that is just plain cold. Yesterday it was way too windy to let them out even in the small paddock, which is the only one they can use right now because everything still has huge amounts of snow....but I just went out for morning buckets and there is no wind, so looks like they can at least get some fresh air and sunshine today. It is a bit icy, so Charlie better behave himself. A few years ago a friend of mine had her horse go down on some ice, it was in a place where she couldn't see her from the house or barn, she didn't know until she called them in that afternoon. They don't know how long she was down, but she couldn't get herself back up and she was terribly stressed, it took 3 of them with sand and kitty litter and blankets to get her on her feet, she coliced so I figure she was down for a while, luckily, she recovered. I worry about my Sterly because she is old, but I can see them no matter where they are from the house. Pray for spring, we left a vote, Love Donna Lee

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

Busy week. I purchased mine and Austin's plane tickets for our trip to Georgia last Monday. Going to be gone for almost 3 weeks in October. Visiting family. Need the time to save up for it. Excited! I worked, Wednesday. Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays are my days off. Got a package sent to Germany, Thursday, for my daughter in law and grandson's birthdays. Opened the gate to let Sadie out of her corral, and one of the corral panels bent causing part of it to fall. She looked at me like I was an idiot. Got it back up. Keeping her out for now. She's a happy girl, too. Have to get a couple of new panels when I can. I put her hay up, so she can't tear it to heck. Now it looks like rain, but that's good. Love and a vote.

Paige, Nuttin But Good is running for HOTM, so if you have time, would appreciate as many votes that you leave the rest of the month. Thank you! Well today's our Monday goof off day! Paige's day off, and my day off too! LOL! Did lunge Indy and then played with Bullseye inside. Went to WallyWorld and then the chiropractor for my monthly adjustment. Feel good! Now hopefully tomorrow when I go by Paige, all that snow has slide off the roof, it did get to almost 50 degrees again today. Melting a lot of this white stuff! Only to maybe get more during the week! UHUHUH! Marion and the blondies.

I love this so much, I had to share.................
When I Am An Old Horsewoman
I shall wear turquoise and diamonds,
And a straw hat that doesn’t suit me
And I shall spend my social security on
white wine and carrots,
And sit in my alleyway of my barn
And listen to my horses breathe.

I will sneak out in the middle of a summer night
And ride the old bay gelding,
Across the moonstruck meadow
If my old bones will allow
And when people come to call, I will smile and nod
As I walk past the gardens to the barn
and show instead the flowers growing
inside stalls fresh-lined with straw.

I will shovel and sweat and wear hay in my hair
as if it were a jewel
And I will be an embarrassment to ALL
Who will not yet have found the peace in being free
to have a horse as a best friend
A friend who waits at midnight hour
With muzzle and nicker and patient eyes
For the kind of woman I will be
When I am old.

Good Morning All, thanks to everyone for the prayers and good positive thoughts, we really appreciate it. It has been a horrible week, Trevor's schedule is every day except Saturday and Sunday, so one week down, 6 to go. Monday was a huge blast of chemo as well as radiation, and by Wednesday he was feeling pretty terrible, he was prepared, so it is not a shock, and he knows it will get worse before it gets better, pray it gets better....they told him that his hearing may be affected because of the location of the tumor, he may loose his hearing, it has started to be affected already, if he does loose it, they say it is permanent. I miss you guys, but I know you are here for us, Love you for that. Talk soon, Love Donna Lee & family.

Thanks for the birthday wishes! I rode Sadie off the property, Monday. She was a little cautious, but happy about it. We rode around the driveway and up and down the road in front of the house. If something got her attention, she stopped. I'd let her, allowing her to check things out. Always something new. The neighbors, up the road, have 2 horses. They were neighing at her. I wanted her to know she was safe. I didn't make her go anywhere she didn't want to go. Baby steps. She didn't want to go back in the fence when it was time to, either. Planning another ride Thursday. Anxious to work with her some more. Love to each of you and a vote.

I'm still here.....
Good morning my friends, I am here to explain my absence. Our household is in turmoil, I'm still trying to get a grip on all of this. The next 7 weeks are going to be quite horrible around here. David's son, Trevor has been diagnosed with cancer, neck and throat, NON SMOKER, he is starting a course of radiation and chemo treatments tomorrow. He has been told that this is a very aggressive cancer and extremely difficult to treat because of the location, they told him he has a very tough battle ahead of him. Trev is handling this well, David, not so much...I chose to remain positive, we have an absolutely state of the art, world class cancer centre in London Ontario, Trevor is young (40's) and he is in excellent health, this was detected early, so even tho it is going to be a rough ride, I need to believe that he does have a few things on his side. Please know that I have missed my time on HC, it has just been a matter of prioritizing, work, chores, and of course support for my David. It tears me apart to see him so worried, the helplessness is getting to me, I am looking into online support groups, to help me understand just what he will be going thru. I am not gone, just stepping back for a bit. Charlie and Sterl May are fine, hating winter, like me, one day at a time, Love you all. Donna Lee

Cowboy's 13th birthday celebration was a total blast for Cowboy. They went paintballing and out to dinner. I missed all the fun. I was a miserable mess, in the bed for 2 days with a virus that I am still fighting.
Other wise, things are fine.

Hi Angel Skye, here's a vote for ya. Congrats on graduation, a Vet's Assistant, nice, very proud of you. Hope that you get another horse come spring time. That would be nice. Well it did make it to about 40F degrees today. Very windy, which helped dry it up just a little, not much, Still have icey places however, and after tonight, going down to 25, should be fun in the morning! But Kevin did put my Yak-Trax on my one pair of winter boots, I'm ready now. Lunged Paige today, OMG, she moved so relaxed and long and deep under herself, she feels good. She just was so bunched up from being worked over bridled that her muscles were all wrong. I saw a major difference in her today. Then Indy and I played. He's in for a rude awaking, Being lunged tomorrow and starting on a program to condition him for riding again. Marissa wants to work with him and possibly show his this summer also. I'm so happy!
