My Horse's motto: Love me, feed me, never leave me



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.

Everet Shaw, who rode his share of great steer roping horses, told Hyde
that Blue was the best horse at Cheyenne that year. Hyde and Del both felt
that Blue started out of the box quicker and could catch cattle easier than
any horse they had ridden. The combination of Blue's athletic ability and
Del's training made him hard to beat. ~Thanks for voting~ **Copper**

produced the stallion Gooseberry, Crow Creek (Lory's top calf horse), and
many good mares. Hyde and Dede then bought the other half interest in Blue
Valentine from Del. Hyde felt like it was a great privilege to rope steers
on Blue. In 1970 Hyde roped at his last Cheyenne Frontier Days on Blue. ~Thanks for voting~ **Copper**

Hi Ella Bee, here's a vote for ya. Finished up all the little details today around the farm. The went over and got Paige ready for her lesson, I didn't ride, my left hip is out! Oh yeah, lucky me! Did to much lifting hay yesterday! Without my back brace on! Stupid Me! Laurel and I gave her a bath, since it went up to 86 degrees today, she worked up a lather! Laurel even rode her today. Got home and turned the boys out while I hooked up the trailer and loaded my bedding, yes with my back brace on! Shaved Indy, just in case I show him in halter again. So it looks like we're ready to leave around 9 am and go and pick up Paige and her work gear and caravan it to the Fair Grounds. Catch y'all on FB and on HC on Monday night. Marion and the blondes.

Hi Cindy, Bub & Bee
Thanks you so much for your concern and hints, when I read your blog, I said "OMG she knows Dr. Cook" One of the first things he taught me years and years ago was that when a horse that normally works well starts to behave differently, they are trying to tell you something. First, I want to explain a couple of things about Charlie's kicking, Dr C has seen him we are comfortable that this is a vice. I believe that last summer after my shoulder surgery and I was unable to ride, Charlie started to kick at night in his stall. I am so upset that I did not pay attention. He only does this at night, it is not aggressive, not related to food. Dr. C says they form a habit and they get endorphin's from doing it. Like cribbers do. He also said, very hard to break. Charlie has NOT changed in any other way, under saddle he is always a gentleman, as I have said before, he has no idea he is TB, and I am not going to tell him. They are only in at night, he has always been stalled at night, he has always been quite a pampered boy. He is turned out all day every day, the barn is open if he chooses to go in. He gets the whole winter off, when I tack him up for our first ride in the spring, it is truly like I rode him yesterday, he is a peach. I don't lunge, never have, Dr. C is not a big fan of it, especially with guys like ours with long legs, and I have never needed too. I don't want to use kicking chains, I am looking at a sort of ankle bracelet that is suppose to be annoying when they kick.I heard a bout a home remedy similar to this one at www.myshoez.com, however I'm concerned that it might rub or even cut his legs. The bracelets are webbing covered with neoprene, just thick and stiff enought to be a bother. I think we will start there We have padded his walls with 2" dense foam, he is getting better, kicking less, but I am relentless, so we will pursue until we are cured. I love this horse and I do not want him to injure himself. Thanks for listening, thanks for the support, we will get this done, left a vote today, Love Donna Lee

I lunged Spangle under tack yesterday. He was being a little grumpy, but was good. I then got on and walked and trotted him. He was really good:)

I rode Rose bareback last night at dusk. It was just a fun ride. We loped in each direction too:) It was fun.

♡ we really had a nice evening. Turned out the boys to graze and then haltered Rocket and ground worked him. I told Cliff he could do that with him but…he just doesn’t have it in him darn it. It started to rain right after I finished and it felt soooo good. We missed the rain from over the weekend so I thought we wouldn’t get any…I was wrong - Thank you for your votes here is a click on your horseshoe. Have a wonderful day ;)

Hi Ella Bee, here's a vote for ya. Thanks for listening! LOL! Yep trailer tires are expensive! Glad that hubby pampered you with dinner and a drink! Much better day today! Got over to Marissa's and most of the place she had cleaned up all ready by noontime. So I helped with dragging the arenas for her, they were packed solid from everyone walking on them. Then Paige got a work out and I got a horsemanship lesson. Got home and turned the boys out for some pasture time, of course they love that! LOL! Tomorrow I'll start getting ready to leave on Wed for our last show of the season. Well last for me, still plenty of quarter horse shows going on all around us, but financially I'm done for the season. LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

I'M GOING CRAZY HERE....
Thanks guys for the suggestions, however, I'm in Canada and Smart Pac can not ship here. I will see what Cookie recommends. I don't think it is restless leg syndrome as Cindy suggested, he only does this at night when in his stall. He has a Jolly Ball, he has a huge stall, he has Sterly visible over the half door, he is outside ALL day long, I mean from 6:30 AM to 5 or 6 PM, he has the barn open during the day if he wants in out of the sun or rain. I have given this a lot of thought and I really think he started this when he was not being ridden last summer, now I have a NASTY habit to try to break. I'm just so angry that I did not nip it in the bud last summer, grrrr. Please Charlie stop this. We are going to cover all the exposed wood and concrete in that corner, at least if he still kicks the concussion should be less. Thanks for listening to all this, Love you all, we left a vote, Donna Lee

Hi Ella Bee, here's a vote for ya. Hope things quiet down for ya soon. Sorry about needing three new tires, that's an expense. Well today was the fund raiser at my trainers barn for Childhood Brain Cancer! Good cause, but the person who was running didn't really pull her weight in doing anything, prep work, setting up and cleaning up! Left 80% of it up to Marissa, hello, when I'm paying for my trainer to be working my horse, I don't expect her to be picking up tables and meats and hotdogs from the store! Then to leave and leave the clean up work all to Marissa too! Shame on her! Okay, I feel better that I vented! Oh, and I even walked horses for the pony rides for Marissa, but at least Marissa made sure I didn't have to pay for my lunch. So no riding today. Got home and then turned the boys out for some pasture time, they were very happy about that. Marion and the blondes.

Hyde inherited from his father the satifaction of riding a good horse he knew he had raised. In the fall of 1956, Ken Gunter gave Del Haverty the pick of the Red Man colts. Del picked a blue roan stallion named Blue Valentine. Del trained Blue to rope calves, tie-down team rope, and haze dogging steers. ~Thanks for voting~ **Copper**

Spangle's Story Continued:
My mom did fall/dismount weirdly and sprained her thumb, but was fine. I have been working with Spangle in the round pen. For a while he would buck and then he would have to gallop a lot. Then we’d go back to what we were doing. Finally, he got the idea. Spangle also started beating up on Rose more than we liked. He chased her a lot. We decided we were going to sell him. He was for sale for a month and a half, but nobody serious called us. Therefore, we gave up trying to sell him. This whole time I was working him in the round pen.

FEELS LIKE FALL, ALREADY...
Good Morning, I don't want to keep going on and on about the kicking, it has improved, but not all gone yet. I have given this a lot of thought. One thing I read is that if they are not getting enough exercise they can start this vice. I think last summer when I was off with my arm surgery, may have been the start. I'm just so mad at myself for not paying more attention...I'm researching joint supplements, 'cause I have to assume he has hurt himself some, I'll talk to Dr. C, any suggestions?

Hi Ella Bee, here's a vote for ya. Hope things quiet down and you get some horsey time in soon! What a chilly, chilly day! Woke up and it was only 47 degrees and the high today was only 68 degrees with overcast and a wind, so it felt a lot colder! Had a really good ride on Paige today, love that my stirrups are set back even a little further back on the tree. Really makes a difference in cueing her for loping and departures. And my legs and lower back don't hurt. I would say they are back 1 inch more than usual, so it's not a really big thing. Got home and feed and afternoon hay lunch, was tired from doing a bunch of things to help Marissa get the farm ready for Saturday's Fund Raiser for Childhood Brain Cancer Research. I'll be there helping out from 9 to 5 tomorrow. Marion and the blondes.

Spangle's Story Continued:
Spangle had never lived with mares before. For the first week he acted little bit like a stallion, but he soon came back being a gelding. ;) However he decided he likes to push Rose around, a lot! There will be more in later blogs. We started riding him. He was much more energetic than he was when we tried him. He also didn’t seem like he listened as well. One day my mom was going to ride him. We hadn’t worked him for a little while. He wouldn’t stand still while my mom was trying to mount. He finally stood. Almost as soon as she was on he bucked like a bronco! More tomorrow.
