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.

✞ Deacon is such a sweet gentle soul, he loves kids. When a child is around he lowers his head down with VERY soft eyes and it almost seems as if he tries to make his body small ~it is such a sight to see. Some of you will gasp at this but I don’t lunge Deacon before riding, never have. He has always been such a gentleman. I do lunge him sometimes if I don’t have time to ride and it’s just to have time with him. I sure do hope your weather is better than it has been here. The winds have been terrible 20-30 mph and cold! Happy trails to you and here is a whinny and a click on your horseshoe with love =)

Hi all. Christmas was nice. I got money to put toward a hay shed, and Sadie got a ball. It's taking some time for her understand it, but she'll love it when she does. Weather's extra cold here overnight, 28* at 4:30 this morning. Sadie's water trough had a layer of ice at 8am. It's in the 60's during the day. Suppose to be cold through next weekend. I hope not. Love and a vote.

Still battling this cold. The worst of it is over. I didn't ride. It was late when Stephanie made it over. Almost dark. When Stephanie rode Sadie, I went inside, because I was too much of a distraction. Sadie behaves much better when she doesn't have an audience. She concentrates on what she's suppose to be doing. As soon I walked outside, she tried to come to me. Stephanie said she's a momma's girl. I say she's spoiled. Lol. Have a blessed weekend. Love hugs and a vote.

☆ Deacon’s registered name is “One More Special”, he surely is one special horse to me. Deacon was born with what people call a “prophet’s thumb”. It is an indention on the right side of his neck. I’m told it is from him lying on his hoof while in his mother’s womb. We thank you for your support during this HOTM run =) Have a wonderful day! Whinnies & hugs =) P.S. hoping to pick up Whiskey today!

Thank you for the get well wishes. I never get sick, but when I do, blech. Lol. Hoping everyone who's under the weather, is feeling better, soon, too...... I did manager a short ride on Sadie, Wednesday. What an amazing feeling to be in the saddle! I forgot about being sick. A friend, who's an experienced rider, came out and rode her, too. I said professional rider, on facebook, because if you have a horse, everyone wants to bring their kids out to ride. Sadie needs work. Not risking accidents.... Stephanie rode Sadie out front. She was amazing. She trotted, cantered and was so good, until she got spooked. She was nervy, possibly coyotes. There's a large den nearby. She bucked hard, and Stephanie hit the ground. She said she was fine, got back on and rode her for a few minutes more. She said she and Sadie need to get to know one another. I'm thinking that's true. Sadie's good with me, but she loves me. She'd better. Lol. Leaving love and a vote.

poor hubby. tell him we are getting a good chuckle out of his predicament. extreme defensive buck hunting- it's a new thing, lol.
oh yes, i hadnt even thought of various dietary restrictions entering the picture. tedious! hope you get some down time to recover after entertaining them. that's nice you have family renting the farmland around you. keeps things simple.
rained yesterday, sunny today. hope to squeeze in a short ride between church activities. have a good sunday.

Sounds like your husband has interesting hunting trips. Probably don't wan't to know anymore, but glad he at least has to shoot in self defense!

Got to get organized. It's terrible to be too busy and too tired to saddle up. Need to take a few days off just for riding. Rained all night Wednesday. The ground is so slippery. Of course, Sadie has freedom until her corral dries up. Love and a vote.

♡ after my kids got to be 15 and 16 (2008) we had a family talk about them getting new computers or me getting a horse. We agreed that I had gone long enough without having a horse! So a friend of mine that trail rides all the time helped me to find a good gentle gelding. She introduced me to Deacons owner/trainer Bill and I fell in love the moment I saw Deacon.. I know I got a late start but better late than never. On my days off work I will try to phone vote folks but please stop and vote Deacon even if I can’t get to everyone. I am getting his story together. This was a last minute decision I made soooo thank you for your support :)

ive never had family to stay that long. i know you're enjoying them, but is it a little difficult to entertain and feed them?
jumping tracks: your property looks beautiful in your pics. how many acres do you have? looks like you are in the middle of crop land- so pretty. not many people grow crops in the upstate, so i really enjoy watching what Clemson is growing and studying in the field next door. they always grow soybeans, lately some wheat and barley and corn and sorghum plots. they have just planted a crop out in some plots, and given the time of year, i think it's oats. they're my favorite. they are a deep blue green when everything else is brown in winter, grow to a lovely uniform height, look like watery green waves in the wind, and then turn golden brown at harvest. they use big tractors and combines out there, and it's just fun to watch the activity.
ok, enough about fields (oh yeah, we get to ride out there as long as we stay off plowed ground). hope you have a good night.

Thanks for all the votes for Spangle's HOTM run! Hope I see him as HOTM tomorrow:)
I dewormed the horses yesterday.
I lunged Spangle yesterday. All we did was walk and trot work. He was a little grumpy because he had been dewormed early.
