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.

Goodness, you're cooler than us this week. We've been 50s at night and 70s during the day.
It was so warm and sunny yesterday (after a heavy fog finally burned off). I was able to saddle up BJ and ride him in the riding ring, but the neighbor's annoying hound dog was over and got right in front of us barking and challenging BJ to his face. Ok, we can use a hound as a substitute cow, so the chase was on. Man, I had forgotten how good BJ is on chasing stuff, he's got some moves! That hound dog couldn't get away from him. It was pretty fun, I was laughing most of the time.
Well, off to work. Hope you have a great monday.

Hi Sadie, here's a vote for ya. Sounds like she's the alpha mare bossing the humans around! Someone really needs to be worked and taught a little human respect! NO offense! I would not tolerate that! Well we got lucky and the snow only amounted to 1.5 inches. And sun today with 35 degrees, so the driveway (black top part) melted off. Paige got lunged and showmanship. Indy got to free play. And Bullseye got turned out in the pasture! Yep was able to get across the front of the barn to the pasture, ice was covered with snow and safe to walk on without slipping. Have the equine dentist coming Monday morning. And best yet, Mo's home and in the barn! He came to the rock wall around noontime, wouldn't walk through the snow, stinker! I went around the pasture fence and he walked the rock wall to me, I picked him up and carried him back to the barn. He was sleeping in the window ledge sunlight all afternoon! Sun bathing to warm up his body I think! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

At least you are getting some rain, with your heat, it can not last too long. What are you winter temps like....I know how hot it becomes in the summer.
Neighbors, I wish mine lived more than the mile away, because it seems, near every summer evening when I am riding they are either shooting their guns or fireworks, and if one horse gets jumpy then they all do.
I would love to have a wood cook stove, have to learn to burn things all over again,...just got that part down just right. :)
Nice outside this morning even if it -8. Frosty the Snowman, must have been busy all night long, painted all the trees and bushes in frost, and with the sunlight they sure sparkle....Mike said they were my diamonds, and then the slight breeze they fall down and leave giant flakes all over the ground, which lay thee and sparkle. Sun is out so day will be bright and warm....Whisper, Willow and Mistic are standing sleeping against the tin shed to warm up.
Dominic got to spend the night, so frying a lot of potatoes, bacon and cheese, which only Grandma know the secret recipe for it....love!!

Hi Sadie, here's a vote for ya. Well started out cold and sun for a couple of hours. Got overcast then. I had a show meeting to go to at Marissa's for our show season. It was held at the local Italian Rest. and we had a Pizza luncheon/meeting. Lot of new ideas, some good, some I don't agree with! But have to go with the flow! And don't ya think, just as we're leaving, it starts snowing! We rode over with Marissa, got back to her barn, 5 minute drive, and hung out with Laura and her mom Jill a few more minutes, like 20! Go outside, and everything is covered in white! Not fun for me. Major roads were brinned, but not my home town road, that was fun with the dually! But home safe and sound. About 1.5 inches so far out there! Gave the kids lunch, 3 pm on time and came in the house and fired up the woodburner and hung out with Honey! Mo did make an appearance, but I was to slow to get to the barn and let him in. He's still out! Hopefully held up out of the snow! Love ya, Marion and the blondes

Oh, I wish I had a old wood cook stove, my Mom cooked on one, and our house was always warm in the winter, and of course too hot in the summer. As long as it is not -25 outside and a south wind, our house stays about 60 which is not bad, sort of use to it, and "when" the sun shines, is feels warmer. You are not going to believe this but this week we should warm up, calling for 30's, it's call winter thaw. But that also means, getting more small squares, and loose hay for bedding in the pig houses, cleaning out some of the chicken coop, and getting things ready for the next cold spell. I think it would be or is worst in the states that normally do not get winter weather, and now have wind, snow, ice, sleet, and rain. The snow I walked threw this morning, just to see how deep it was...15-16 inches, and where it drifted, it was 30 inches, when t gets to be 60 inches, just the top of my hat/head will be sticking out. I will have to wear one of those little flags, so Mike knows where I am stuck in the snow. :)

Hi Joyce & Sadie, Sorry I wasn't really on much this week to blog. Tax season is about ready to begin and there's been lots of prep this week and my new class started this week after 3 weeks off so I had to get back into the groove of doing classwork! But I hope you had a nice weekend! I was able to get Koot out for awhile on Sunday, but it was pretty muddy still. It rained Tuesday-Thursday this week so it's extremely muddy right now! I plan to see Koot both days this weekend, but I don't know if I'll be able to turn out or not - depends on how muddy things still are. If it's too muddy then he'll just get a walk around the streets. Next week, we are expecting MORE rain around Wednesday through the weekend :( Voted. XOXO Danya and Koot

Hi Sadie, here's a vote for ya. Well the sun was out but so was the winds! Very gusty! And the temps dropped over 16 degrees in a matter of hours! Did get them to the indoor for some exercise, but the doors were banging and I wasn't about to ride! Erin, who is partners with Steve where I adopted Honey from, stopped by today. She couldn't believe how awesome Honey is looking and how well she listens to me and just hangs out! Honey did many sit stays to show off. And she gave Erin a few kisses too! It was a fun day for Honey! Now if Mo would just come home tonight! He took off yesterday during the daytime in the nice temps, he'll freeze tonight out there, going down to 20F! I'll be calling for him till whenever, hope he hears me! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

I sure like the new picture, I am a sucker for "bald-face" babies.....no matter how old of babies.
The Town of Kennan, owns the grater or plow, which means we the taxpayers paid for it with our taxes. We are charged 10 dollars each time he plows, which will be on our tax bill next yr.
I try to make something in the oven on these super cold days, like this morning it is -26 outside, with a little wind. I heat water for the calves, and carry it out there to help them stay warm....like hot coffee or tea in the morning, and pigs also get hot water in their feed.
Sadie is not following dr. orders, wants to run and play, so we let her out just a bit each day instead of her coming out with me to do chores.
I like reading your postings, I find out how much more I need to learn. :) Good thing I never went into showing.

It was up to 70 yesterday ("near" 65, per the weatherman). Crazy the difference from the first of the week. I rode Allie again and she did well, she's just so stiff at the lope still, I forgot that's where we had left off. Otherwise, she did good.
Well, off to work. Hope you have a great friday.

Unset is getting better with me, discovered she has a passion for carrots, and once she saw I had some, she walked right up to me. Didn't seem to mind that I had the halter and lead in the other hand and was able to rub on her a little. Will just keep working with her until she learns to trust me. Another really nice day, not windy at all. Hope you get the new panel soon.

Hi Sadie, here's a vote for ya. Well it made it up to an overcast with rain showers throughout the day, but 52 degrees! What a muddy mess! Oh Well, slippen on the ice, slippen on the mud! Take ya choice! Very windy and the big doors are unfrozen so they were bangin' an clangin'. But I got Paige lunged and more showmanship work. Only do about 8 minutes on the showmanship. Then Indy got a good cleaning, as someone used a pile of manure for a pillow last night. OMG that white forelock and mane were chocolate brown! He got lunged too. Hay and fresh water for lunch. Then rest time for me. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi & a vote,
We don't have any snow left on the ground up here! The temps are up/down and either it's cold, windy, or muddy. Rocky is doing great on his senior feed. My daughter lunged Cowboy yesterday and said he wasn't used to "working" and was being spunky. That doesn't last too long with him.

I am glad I have enough panels for make a area around the two sheds/barns, plus extra for stalls inside. Mud has just as much problems as snow.
We do have a tractor with a bucket on, but does not work that good for plowing the snow, but would work if really needed. We live right off the town road, and since we are the only one thre, we get plowed when they do the road, otherwise they have to come back for just one driveway. We have a large area to plow, horseshoe driveway, (what else, huh), area by the garage, and then a turn around. Mike could fit the pipe, but it has to be cut apart, therefore, draining all the water in the pipes, up to the shut off, its not bad in here, until night, otherwise in the day time, I am cooking or just moving around makes it warmer. I just never sit much, I clean tack at night or work on a craft project or just sort more boxes of "stuff".
We did get more snow after the first batch of snow, but it is so beautiful out there its hard to get mad at Mother Nature for such a beautiful scene, right off the Christmas card. Pines are all frosted and quite and calm.

Hi Sadie, here's a vote for ya. I hope that once it dries up and you get another panel for her corral, you can redesign it properly! Tell Rick to go to work and leave his hands off the fence! Well we got that snow, sleet and ice last night. Fun when I went to walk to the barn this morning! U-turn and got the boots on with the YakTrax on them. Then all was okay. It got a little sunny and warmed up, about 46F melted it all off. Got Paige lunged and we worked more on a couple of steps for showmanship. Indy got lunged and Bullseye free play. Then since it defrosted enough, the big door opened on the indoor, so in went the big tractor to drag and fluff it up. Brought more wood in the house and called it a day! LOL! Tomorrow if they are right, about 55F but with rain! Oh yeah, what a muddy mess that'll be! Well better than a foot of snow and ice. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

More rain? Is that normal for you out there?
I was actually in short sleeves this afternoon riding Allie. She did so good. We kept it slow because the ground is still a bit slick, but she even backed a few steps without rein pressure, something we've never done. Sidepassing a couple of steps down the fence. She tossed her head against turning pressure in a pony protest a few times while trotting, but relaxed and softened into it after a few minutes. I was so tickled with her.
Well, hope you've had a good wednesday. Take care.

How is Sissy doing? Bet Sadie is happy to be out of the corral. Had a couple of work sessions with Sunset today, they had warned me she was very shy and hard to catch, so that will be our game plan for awhile. We got as far as her letting me come up and touch her nose, while holding the halter. She was very suspicious of the halter. Once I get her haltered, will just do grooming and hand grazing (so she doesn't think every time she gets caught she has to work), then start on groundwork.

Someone really made Mother Nature mad....nearly a foot or more of snow, some places and then bitterly cold winds, some up to 40-50 mph. I figured we received about 9-10 inches of snow. So much we could not get out of the driveway to go pick up Sadie, from the vet's after being fixed. Dominic took care of her and called every few hours to ask me questions or tell me what she was doing. Mikey has labs this morning at 10, and then 3 appointments tomorrow over 100 miles one way.
Glad we hauled all the loose hay and small squares to the pigs and Highlanders, they have it easy this morning, don't even have to go outside.

Hi Sadie, here's a vote for ya. Well once again the weathermen lied! At least I didn't wake up to the snow and sleet, although maybe tonight they are saying now. But they also said that today's high was going to be 35F! Well it started out as 7F and only got to 25F when I worked out the horses. And the sun didn't hang around more than an hour! But Paige got lunged and showmanship. Indy got lunged and Bullseye got free play time. Hopefully they are right and the temps will be going up for a few days. I'd love to turn the heat off in the barn. Oh that electric bill is going to be a truck payment next month! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

The little MFT mare was a dream to ride.  Noticed when their son was riding her, she fussed a bit about the bit (long shanked Tom Thumb), so asked about trying her in a halter.  Their son rode her in the halter, said she seemed softer.  We switched saddles, I got on, and it was magic. She needs softening work, and the gait will take a little getting used to, but she did everything I asked.  They said they had never had anyone ask to try a strange horse in a halter, but she did so well. Just had a feeling.  Drive wasn't bad, except for nearly hitting a house on the way home (it was being moved and was in the middle of a bridge).  Standing on the brakes, swearing, got stopped just in time.  She's a dark chestnut, no white.

Mike just informed me that we have 3 more months plus, of this weather. Our house is so cold, 51 this morning and 23 outside. Leaving now to take Sadie to the vet to be fixed, certainly do not want any "oops" puppies from her. See if I can afford to do Smokey Joe and Grizzly next month, but cats are cheaper.

Hi Sadie, here's a vote for ya. Yep, we just had the big Rodeo at Madison Square Garden in NYC this past weekend! Well coldest one yet! 5 F degrees at wake up time, up to 7 F when I left for the dentist. And don't ya think, his dental assistant is sick and working. She came in my room to remove the bib and you could hear it in her voice, what little she had left of it. I asked, are you sick? She's like oh yeah, I feel like heck. GEZZZ go the hell home and don't pass it on! Anyhow, got home and after lunch and my meds, I went down and hand walked Paige for 20 minutes in the indoor. Temp in there was a mere 20 degrees. I was bundled up and scarf over my mouth so as to not breath in the cold air. Got ready then for chiropractor. Get there and there's no one in the receptions desk! Dr. Joe comes out and I asked where Aggie was. She's home sick with no voice and feels like heck. Well at least someone knew better and stayed home! Two more days of meds to take, so hopefully this won't come back! Snow, sleet and freezing rain for Tuesday, oh YAY! NOT! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Oh my gosh! Soooo sorry about the long absence. I have gotten on HC every once and a while but I hope to start getting on more now. I redeemed some of my points and received a mini halter, sooo cute I got hot pink! I picked the smallest size because I hope it'll work out for mini goats that we are planning on getting in the spring time. How have y'all all been? It's been pretty cold here in Texas.

Another horrible windy day, but at least it was warm. Nothing is ever easy, Scott helped me air up tires on the trailer, took an hour and a half - the seal is going on the compressor tank. Anyway, everything is all packed up, if the little mare suits, will be bringing her home. Should be a good trial ride, will be very windy tomorrow.
