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.

November 1st Susie is home and once again she is confined to the barn. We are having to change her bandages every 3 to 5 days. This is getting to be a task. Also having to clean out the barn everyday, with her many piles of manure and wet areas. lol Susie was getting bored being confined, away from the herd. So on November 16th, my husband decided to let Susie out of the barn and put her in a small pen area. Well you know Susie…she was not content to be outside, she wanted to be with the herd. So she tried to jump the fence and managed to get her leg caught in the square fencing. Yes, it was her left rear leg. We brought her in, doctored her leg and bandaged it up. She had completely messed up the grafting process. She remained in the barn another 10 days. At this point the wound had pretty much healed but the hair had not regrown. We knew that this was the best we could hope for, so we removed her bandage and set her free.

Hello to all-finally! So many things and changes have occurred lately.

My dad was released from the hospital and the assisted living facility would not take him back, so we got him set up in a skilled nursing facility on the dementia/Alzheimer's unit July 16.

Spent the weekend in Tennessee and officially became a grandma (I'm 43) on July 19. Madilynn Bree weighed in at 9lbs 1oz 21in long by C-section after several hours in labor. Mother and baby doing very well.

4-H fair week July 20-25 was a long week for us! Daughter Courtney did well for her first year, 2 5ths, 2 4ths, and one 1st place ribbon with a trophy. She earned that one in bareback pleasure on our fat leased horse Pumpkin! Bub and Bee were quite the handfuls as they did not want to be separated from each other and kept calling back and forth so they didn't do as well as they could have. I'll be adding pics and Pumpkin on as well since now I have time, because...

I just had surgery on July 28. Had full hysterectomy because of severe fibroids. I was in a lot of pain almost constantly, but I'll leave out the gross details! I had to go in early to receive blood prior to and during surgery because of low hemoglobin. I'm doing pretty good so far considering. My wonderful husband Matt cleaned the stalls yesterday and had to dump several times as the horses were left in due to weather risks and did not want Courtney to handle them without supervision.

I hope all is going well for everyone and I'm glad to have time to rejoin in the conversations on HC! Have a blessed day!!

Hi from Celeste and herd
It's another hot miserable day. I get up at 5:AM to work with the horses. They don't like getting up that early and they have to work with me before breakfast.
I swear that Miniature horses live to eat. My mare has gotten overweight so she is on a diet and not liking it.
I don't have the overeating problem with the big girls and they walk away when they are full...NOT the minis. I think they would eat a whole round bale at a time if they could. They only get fed square bales, more control over what they eat.
Take care and God bless...love Celeste

Hi Sadie, here's a vote for ya. Well another hot humid one today. Feels like was 96 with a real of 92 again. Started packing by 8 am and was done in about 90 minutes of loading bedding, hay and all the other major stuff. I was dripping wet in sweat! Gave Indy and Paige their show shaves and then did our Showmanship patterns in the indoor with Paige. Only stayed in there about 15 minutes and then back to the barn and 6 fans going! We'll be leaving about 10 am tomorrow, since it's only a 30 minute drive to the Fair Grounds. Hopefully beating out the thunder storms and getting all settled in. Will miss y'all and might list on FB if I have time. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

I think one found me. Karen will need to check references, really not worried about approval. It's about a 2hr drive, the only really bad section was I30, E of Rockwall - it always drives me crazy because the lanes are so narrow due to construction. The mare's name is Kisses, she's dk bay/brown with a small star, early 20's or maybe late teens, I believe. Kept nudging me and trying to eat my hat, then wouldn't let the other horses come up to me. There are 2 other possibles, may not make up my mind till I actually go back out there.

Hi Joyce & Sadie, I hope you're having a great week :) I went and saw Koot last night. I swear he couldn't have cared less that I was gone haha. But I did turn him out and he ran a bit. My friend took him out a couple times while I was away. Hoping to see him again Thursday and this weekend. We are doing some wedding stuff and then have a wedding to go to so I'm going to do my best to see him. Voted. XOXO Danya and Koot

In answer to the question as to what caused the proliferative lesion, not really sure. Not sure why she got pythium and the other horses at the same pasture didn't. They did say that her immune system could have played a part. The birth of her foal could have weakened her immune system and made her more susceptible to diseases. After all of this we did put her on a supplement for her immune system called Tri-Mune.~~~

The grafting process consisted of taking punch grafts from Susie’s left side of her neck underneath her mane. They took a total of 22 punch grafts and implanted them into the wound bed. Her leg was bandaged and they would wait five days before the bandage could be removed. Susie remained at LSU until October 31st. Halloween day she retuned home after a total of 17 days. Now the fun begins! lol (A click on the horseshoe)

Ha, maybe she's been watching elephants on the Animal Channel. Pretty smart. My niece's mare uses the groove under her head to scoop water from the trough onto her chest and front legs. I've seen her empty half the water trough in one go doing that.

Hi Sadie, here's a vote for ya. Well it was a hot humid one today. Heat index was at 95 degrees, straight up temp was 90! So Indy and Paige were both only lunged for 15 minutes, with every fan going in the indoor, plus the big 36 round fan by the one door way. So it wasn't all that bad in there out of the sun and humidity. Then I waited for the sun to move and shade the backside and northeast side and then I weed whacked all that down. Moved the trailer into the driveway closer to the garages and will start to pack it up tomorrow. Remembering to bring a ton of electrolytes for both the horses, dog and myself. Although the dog will be into the trailer almost 24/7 in the A/C! Lucky him! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

OMG, have never heard of a horse doing that. Standing in the water tub, getting IN the water tub, splashing in the water tub, yes, but not taking mouthfuls of water and throwing it onto their back. Well, tomorrow is the big adventure. Hope the internet directions are good, taking the car just in case (and if I do find something I like, they will need to check references).

Maybe she's trying to tell you to hose her down again! My horses enjoy being hosed down now that it is so hot. lol~~

Almost at the end of our HOTM run...yay! Keep the votes coming and thank you.~~~

Susie was going to have to return to LSU to have skin grafts done. The wound would not completely heal without having the grafts done. They needed the wound to start healing first and then after it reached a certain point, they were going to implant the skin grafts into the wound. She returned to LSU on October 15th. However the wound bed was not ready for the grafting, so she stayed there and on October 22nd they preceded with the grafting process. (Voted)

Hi from Celeste and herd
It's 9:AM and 86F very hot and very humid!
I set the fans up for the horses for today. The big girls are out in the field with the pond so when they get to hot they wade out into the pond and cool off. So far the well is holding out so we are good that way. It's causing a hay shortage for everyone but I am thankful I found a pretty good hay guy that can supply me.
Take care and God bless...love Celeste

Here's a click on your horseshoe. Rode yesterday, bareback. And we loped, his did good. The only attitude was when he tripped he bucked. That's what he is know to do. It's weird. But luckily he didn't throw me.

Trotting by with a vote! Not much is happening around here. Cimarron has been eating lots of apples; the fruit is getting ripe early this year. Of course, because he's special, I feed him the best ones and throw the bruised or otherwise damaged apples out to the other horses.

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.
