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.

I am so sorry to hear about your dad, but excited about you taking on another horse! I sure hope your surgery goes well ♡ I was able to get the boys out and brush and put their fly stuff on. They mowed our yard for us and it gave their hooves some relief from being wet. I had to have citronella candles going to keep mosquitoes at bay. Flies aren’t as bad as you would think but bad enough. Hugs & a vote for you!!!

Hi Ella Bee, here's a vote for ya. Oh wow, so sorry to hear all the bad news. Yes, sometimes our parents just know when it's time and want to move on! I went through it with both of mine, 9 months apart! So sad! Praying that your surgery will be smooth and easy and cancer free! Oh wow, a new horse! That's awesome! Good luck with him. What events will you be doing with him? Well woke up to the rains, but it all stopped by 9 am and got sunny and humid, but that did dry it up. Got ole'blue down to Jimmy's today, so hopefully it'll sell over the weekend! Came home and only lunged them, it was so hot and humid, in less than 20 minutes they each were soak'n'wet! Then hosed them off and turned them out, up to almost a full hour now of grass/pasture time. Then mowed one pasture and one side of the indoor arena. Tomorrow my farrier is coming in the am to do Paige. Then it's hopefully ride, supposed to only be about 64 degrees tomorrow. Then mow another pasture and the other 3 sides of the indoor. Love working outdoors now! Not like in the winter, freezing my vocal cords off! Marion and the blondes.

Hi Ella, sorry to hear about your dad's declining health. That can't be fun to go through :( how awesome you picked up a new little horse called Pumpkin! Sounds like that name is quite fitting considering how overweight he is lol. I went and saw Koot yesterday and let him run and roll. He was having a good time flipping his head and kicking up his heels lol. Hopefully I'll get a little ride in tomorrow :) Voted. XOXO Danya and Koot

Cindy, so sorry you're having to have surgery (yes, wait till fall) and VERY sorry you're Dad's not doing well. Yes, wait till you have plenty of time to work Bub on the trailering. Bill Dorrance stated horses are very forgiving, but they have the second longest memory of any animal.

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.

It has been spring here had a 15 minute storm around 8 last night, thunder lightning and a soaker rain, pretty refreshing this morning, the other night we had hail rain, thunder and lightning, that one lasted a little longer with alot more rain.
Made another trail obstacle took Lilly 2.5 hours to finally go through it, it is a gate of those swimming pool noodles, kinda cool, can't believe she was so stubborn especially because of some of the tree branches we ride through in the orchard, Maybe because she can't eat these as she passes through LOL Hope you all have a lovely week, love Suz and Lilly

Come visit me, Lilly.

The entire garden is planted now except for the peppers, will do those tonight, working on a project as we speak using a product called Light Hoof it is for really muddy areas, it gets super muddy and slippery right before Lilly comes in the barn last year did a 12-12 area using this product under her over hang before she enters her stall now I'm just doing the 6-12 walk up area right before that, she should keep her feet mud free this winter unless she ventures out further into the pasture, after I finish this project today gonna take a quite ride , I will work on the orchard tomorrow !!! have a beautiful day Suz and Lilly

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!

Sorry for not being active for the past few days, I do log on every morning at 3AM after I feed the guys, I like to check out HOTD and vote for HOTM if it is a friend. Not much new around here, I have had a chance to ride some, the helps with the depression. We got one of the pastures reseeded and it looks like rain tomorrow, yeah.

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.

it was good to hear from you and get caught up. you'd better get to riding; the way this year is flying by, it'll be Christmas tomorrow, lol. so sorry to hear about your dad and your health. it's tough being the sandwich generation with your own health issues too. i hope your dad improves and your doc has a good plan to help you out. hope 36 decides he likes the trailer okay- that can be a bugger of an issue to straighten out. is there anyone who can help you with him, like maybe even a local trainer? not that you normally couldn't deal with him, it's just that you have so much on your plate right now. might be nice to have a little help with some of it.
glad your daughter is doing well. the big day isn't far off. will this be your first grandchild? i hear that's a wonderful new experience. congratulations.

Hi Ella Bee, here's a vote for ya honey. What a day, cold again, only 34 when we got up. High winds and cold. But I did get to Lunge Indy and then ride Paige in the indoor. Doors banging and clanging. An excavator working 100 feet away and dumping things into a dump truck. We worked on our Horsemanship Patterns for our show next weekend. Hopefully our temps are going to start to improve again and go back to real spring time weather. Marion and the blondes.
