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.

Hi Sadie, here's a vote for ya. Got a lot of little things done today. Spread out 200 lbs of Mag/Cal in the indoor in the super dry and dusty areas, yes I have those, along with some still wet spots from that storm almost 2 weeks ago now! UGH! Well last night we had that storm, I don't think we've ever had lightning and thunder that lasted so long, it was well over two hours of it. And the rains finally came, heavy for a while too, I was worried about more seeping into the indoor on the low side, but all was well. Rain gauge said one inch. Today was major food shopping day and get all that's needed for our horse show this Thursday when we leave. Horses were out late in the afternoon, as it was very hot and humid earlier, then it seemed to drop in humidity and a nice breeze came in. Tomorrow it's back to riding and start to pack up the trailer. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

The next day October 25th, a surgical excision of the lesion was done. Preliminary results were not consistent with pythium. However a culture was taken and sent off for testing. The initial diagnosis was an ulcerative and proliferative lesion on the lateral aspect of left rear pastern. After the surgery was done Susie remained at LSU for 9 days, where she was confined to a stall and her bandages changed every 3 days. She was sent home on October 2nd. We were told to keep her confined to her stall. However we separated the barn to give her two stalls and the middle isle, where we placed a round hay bale for her to eat. We also had to change her bandages every 3 days. This again was just like when she had her head wound. It is very difficult for someone, without any medical background, to apply these bandages. This bandage consisted of six steps (telfa pad, white cling gauze, cotton combine, brown gauze, vetwrap and elasticon). Try putting this on all while the horse is moving. lol Just lucky there were two of us working together. Susie seemed to be enjoying, once again being treated like a queen. Here's a vote.

Basically, almost too hot to think. Was sweating when I came in from feeding and topping up the water tubs at 8AM. No breeze, very humid. Will be heading up to Throwaway Ponies on Weds, see if I can find a nice, gentle mare for a companion for Nugget when Cisco and I are gone.

it's that time of the year that daily cool downs are part of my afternoon duties! The boys enjoyed the carrot party!! Whiskey will go to the vet tomorrow for his yearly shots. I will probably do some things in the house until around 5-5:30 then get out again, have a great day and a great one tomorrow ♡

It has been a super busy past week!!! Last Sunday I went to a jumping Grand Prix with some of my barn friends. Boy, was that ever cool!!! Most of the rest of the week was filled with work and helping with a moving sale. I would love to get some riding in, but not with how hot it has been. Yesterday was 90+ and pretty humid...yucky! Hope everyone is staying cool and here's a vote!

thought of all of the Horse Channel members and their horses, this morning while I made a short cut back to the house, and watched the heavy dew of water fly up from the front of my boots. Very cool out, and I wish I could share it with everyone. But then, I would have to share the weeks of 30 below and 10 foot high snow banks.

it's been super hot and dusty. I'm trying to keep my horses cool and hosed off every day. I mixed up half alcohol and half water and sprayed it on them. the alcohol evaporates faster for a quicker cool down. when I ride I'm mostly walking. we're about ready for some rain!

I'm on late tonight, still on vacation so my schedule is all off. lol~~~~~

O.K. here comes Susie’s drama. It is October 24, 2012, only two months after Lollipop’s death. We bring Susie back to LSU. This time she has a lesion on her left rear pastern. We noticed it a couple of days before and decided this time we would go straight to LSU. We thought for sure that it was the pythium again, it looked just like the lesion on her head. We didn’t even bother to call a vet, we loaded her up and headed to LSU. We knew she would be in great hands. Left a vote.

Hi Sadie, here's a vote for ya. Well, thank goodness I woke up a new woman! Got a lot done to make up for the lost day yesterday. Rode Miss Paige and she was really awesome today. Then they got turned out and I mowed the lawn and did a few other outside things. Knowing that this storm we are now getting was movin' on in! It's been thunder and lightning for over 45 minutes now, no rains yet! But I saw pictures on FB of the damage it did to Norther PA! Hope it's worn down a little by the time we get the full effect of it. So if you don't hear from me and are reading this on someone else's page, it's cause it's really close now and I shut the computer down. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Galloping by on this cool Sunday morning with a click on your horseshoe. Rode bareback yesterday morning, he did good we mostly rode on the trail.
Friday morning I loped him bareback, he was amazing. His gait is so different from the saddle and bare, very smooth and easy to sit.
Hope your staying cool in this brutal heat. Love always and a vote, best wishes!

Hi Sadie, here's a vote for ya. So on Friday, I got Indy lunged and Paige ridden. Did a couple of other things. Got them turned out to pasture and took a nap! I knew the wedding at 6:30 pm would be a long night! But I held off on feeding till 5:30 and put me leaving about 6:10 pm. Missed the vows thing, glad for that. Cocktail hour with all the many tables of picken's was under way. I had my first in 25 years drink of a Toasted Almond. Took me two hours to finish it! LOL! Glad I filled up on the goodies at all the hot food stations. Cause for the main meal it was a choice of Filet Mengion, Salmon, or Chicken stuff with spinach and red peppers, since I don't do meat or fish, went with the chicken! Wish I could have had the kids meal of chicken fingers. Ate two bites and called it quits, horrible! The night dragged on, very slow in doing every thing! Cake cutting was at 10:30 pm, but with an open serving stations of all kinds of Italian deserts. Good thing, made up for missing my meal! LOL! Hardly anyone danced, DJ wasn't playing good tunes at all. Just wasn't a lively wedding party for sure! Felt so sorry for Eileen, the brides mother, she got stuck holding their kid all night long, and she too has bad back problems. Not right! Called it quits by 11 pm and had the 45 minute drive one. Checked the horses, let the dog out and thought I could pass out. Nope. Spent this morning making up for lost sleep. Nothing got done today. What a waste of a day! Horses did get out all afternoon to graze however. I'm not a night time person! No more weddings for me, I'm out of town! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Stopping in with a vote. Tonight for the first time, they didn't immediately head out to where Meg is buried. Tomorrow would have been her 20th BD, have some late blooming roses, will take them out.

Just want to say thanks again for all the support and the votes. Keep them coming! Just one more week to go! The story continues...

So what’s going on with Susie all this while…you ask. Don’t worry Susie is laying back just waiting to spring some more of her drama on us. As you can see never a dull moment around here. With a herd of horses, especially like mine, there is always something going on. There may not be a lot of riding activity going on, but there is a heck of a lot of every other activity going on here. lol (Another click on the horseshoe)

I got outside around 6:30 am yesterday and mowed, weed eat, sprayed the horses down. I let them dry and groomed them and applied their Freedon 45. It was 11 am when I finished all that so I went on inside because the heat was coming on pretty strong. We came back out around 5:30 pm and it had cooled some. We grilled steaks and they were yummy!!! Have a wonderful weekend ♡
