My Horse's motto: I will...if I must



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.

Miracle's update:
Healing Hearts Animal Rescue and Refuge.
"Friends, it is with heavy heart that we bring you the news of Love's passing. Once we got her safe to our refuge, she started to seize. She had been carefully and thoughtfully examined by 2 vets, as well as monitored 24 hours a day by our staff. We agreed that she needed to be set free, as not to harm herself and to be allowed to pass with dignity. She was surrounded by people who cared, loved and honored her life. She went over the bridge under the warm sun, in the arms of those who saved her from abuse. She was not alone." Love and a vote.

Pumpkin pics, when you have time? how's he doing? is he a bay too? you just cant hardly beat a bay for color and shine in the spring. though I will say, my niece's black TWH looks like she's a Breyer model horse, she's so impossibly slick and shiny just now.
hope you have a good thur.

So sorry to hear about your dad. I'm proud of you that you respect his feelings about being ready. It's hard to accept that our parents are aging and passing, but counterproductive to pretend that it won't happen. Prayers with you.
Also sorry to hear that you'll have to be out with surgery at some point. That's never any fun.
so you have a fat little QH in amongst your sleek lanky TBs? How fun. Any pics?
Not much new here. Work is work, looking g forward to my daughter being out of school for the summer. Riding some but not as much as I'd like. I continue to help out my sister in law, who's almost blind from glaucoma and can no longer drive and is trying to get by on just a disability check.
Well, off to work. Hope you have a good hump day.

Sigh, more rain. Looks like the worst of it will be up around the OK border, so that's good. Just a few brief thunderstorms our way, according the radar. Still 80-100% chance of rain the next 10 days. Usually by this time, we're praying for rain. We are SUCH a muddy mess!

Hello to all. Sorry if I leave anyone out but I'm not supposed to be on here right now-shhh!-but I never seem to get the time!
My dad is slowly declining in health and is praying to die. It is time he goes.
I found out I'm going to have to have surgery to remove my uterus and possibly my only ovary due to monstrous fibroids. Usually those are noncancerous but due to my cancer history, the doctor will have it checked. So because of that possibility, instead of laparoscopic surgery I think I will take the incision so he can remove it in one piece. This will set me back around 6-8 weeks. No riding, no lifting, no mowing, no heavy chores at all! A.K.A. Worthless! So I have decided to put it off until after the summer and 4H and new granddaughter arrives.
The horses are good, healthy, and so shiny! I just looked at them-so pretty in the sun. They are in excellent health and dappling too! I haven't tried Bub in the trailer lately which I need to be more consistent but I can't be in a time crunch which is what I've been in lately. Being in a hurried state would be worse than not at all. If he doesn't make it to 4H this year, it's a shame but fine. We just picked up another horse, Pumpkin, to show too. He is a fat QH guessing 250 pounds overweight! Daughter and I started working him yesterday. So now 3 horses and a two horse trailer! Unless we hitch a ride, someone is out!
I hope all is going well for all of you. I will try to get on here more. I know I'll be on after surgery a lot-that's not the way I want to do it, but it is what it is! Leaving a vote! Have a good day.

How's everything going? Hope its smoothing out for you a bit. Any more luck with 36 getting in the new trailer? Have you been able to ride yet? How's your dad doing?
Not much news here. BJs heaves have been minor this year, whether that's due to the herbs I'm giving him or his allergy trigger isn't blooming yet, I don't know, but I'm grateful. Unfortunately, he's popped a stifle, though it doesn't seem to bother him much. He just hasn't been very healthy the last few years. Allie continues to grow and is finally filling out just a little bit-she looks great. Gracie is acting more and more like her mother as she gets older-dont we all, lol.
Well, hope you have a good Tues and take care.

This happened last week, just a few miles north of my house. So sorry this is long, but I had to share this with all of you, Evil. Don't know how anyone could do such a horrible thing. I left a vote, too.....Tandra Hefley posted this on her Facebook page.
Ok everyone so here's what happened about 2 am regarding the horse. I am extremely tired, so if I don't explain any of it well, please just ask and I will try to explain a different way.

I was headed home on 331st ave going north. Just as I was almost to Sunland Ave I saw what looked like a roll of carpet or maybe a large cardboard box. I swerved around it and decided I should remove it from the road so someone else wouldn't hit it. I turned around, pulled up about 10 feet from it with my headlights aimed at it, and went to get it. When I was a few feet away, the horse raised its head and nickered to me. I almost threw up! This poor animal was hog tied like a kidnap victim would be! Her front legs were tied, the nylon strap went to her back legs, then over her back to her throat. If she tried to move the strap would choke her. I didn't have a knife, so I tried to pull enough slack to get it off one hoof. She would panic when it tightened on her throat and I would have to stop. There was a car headed in our direction so I frantically pull on it and she trusted me enough to get one leg free. Then I quickly undid the rest and tried to get her to stand. She has deep cuts in her legs and throat from fighting, but I did get her up. That's when I saw the hair and blood on the pavement. Somebody had hit her as she lay helpless on the road. I slowly walked her to the side of the road and started calling people for help. Shawn Funkhouser got my trailer and came to help me. It took her two tries, but she loaded like a champ! We got her to my house and called MCSO. They came and made a report as well as called the Felony Animal Crimes Division to make sure whoever did this pays for it! This morning about 7 Natasja Pieters Robbins came and made a report for the Dept of Agriculture Livestock. She is already working to find the person who did this.

As injured as this poor mare is, she never tried to bite or kick me. She did everything I asked of her, even though she is in more pain than I even want to imagine. She has been starved for at least the last year. She is about 600 lbs under weight. She was tied and left to die on a dark road. She was hit by a car and her skin ripped off on the pavement. But she will walk right up and give horse kisses. She will nickered at me as soon as she sees me. And she allows me to clean and doctor her dozens of wounds without protest. No animal should have to endure what this sweet, kind, beautiful, and loving mare has had to endure!

Thank you to Angie Shelley Bassett, Frank Joseph Cooper Jr., T.j. Furness, and Pat Page for your help as well!

I put the other shelf up. So nice to have a place for my my horsey brushes, hoof picks, fly spray, etc. The shingles aren't on, yet. Austin and a friend are finishing it up for me. With school, an overload of homework and work, it's hard for Austin to have the time. He's done with School on the 22nd. Will have it finished, then. Love always and a vote.

Hope things are going smoothly for you this week. I always feel a little panicky when life is wild and woolly. How's your dad doing? Is 36 changing his attitude about the new trailer yet?
I rode BJ yesterday and did groundwork with Allie. Finished by sitting on her and flexing her head back and forth. She did great. Can't wait till she's old enough to really ride.

Sorry Bub is still unsure of the trailer (even tho it's a different one). I think horses and elephants must have the longest memories. Hopefully he will overcome it.

A quick hello and to say things are happening around here-some good, some not so much. Horses are healthy and being stubborn! Bought a new trailer because Bub had that accident in the 3 horse slant and refusing it because he remembers but is also unsure of the straight load I bought. Dad in and out of hospital and being needy!Etc, etc, etc! Not gonna bore ya with details. I am having female problems though-am going to the dr next tuesday. Business venture is slowly coming along. Mrs. Prego (daughter) doing good! Baby shower May 2nd. I miss being on here but so darn busy! GRRR!! I hope everyone is doing good and wish everyone well. Thanks for not "kicking me to the curb" and forgetting me. Everyday I'd love to get on here. I haven't even had time to ride yet this year!! Hope to be on a regular basis soon. Take care and love to all!! Cindy, Bub, and Bee

how's everything going? how's the new business? how's your dad? how's your daughter's pregnancy coming?
we have been fine. got to visit my parents when they were camping up this way last weekend. dad's getting so frail on his feet that I seriously don't know how they manage to hook up the camper and set out the chairs, but they love it, and I will hate to see that come to an end for them, when the time comes. the horses are STILL shedding out, seems like it takes forever. don't know how they don't starve to death growing all that hair every fall. Gracie and Allie finished the winter a little thin, but they are putting weight back on now that the grass is greening up. BJ, Dee, and Cinni are all too fat already and are having to be put up every night, which they hate. it's hard to manage a herd with varying metabolisms, lol.
