How We Met

I met Ginger when she was 15 and i was 10. I fell in love with a abused and nervous horse nobody believed in. Her owner gave her to me if I promised to board her at his farm for a year. She was the best thing I ever called mine. GINGER: GONE, BUT NEVER FORGOTTEN!!!.

Hi Angel Ginger, here's a vote for ya. Another good weather day, little warmer, like 80 degrees with some humidity, but not that bad. Horses were out for two hours and then wanted in. I noticed some bugs starting to come around too. Got a load of pelleted bedding and grain for Paige. Got home unloaded it myself, took my time. Then mowed the lawn which was like a mini forest! Other than that, that's it. More weed whacking tomorrow and mowing, plus I will work with Paige, back in training with me! Marion and the blondes.

Have to rush again this morning. Someone coming around 11 to buy some chicks and a few keets. Hope its enough to buy feed next week. Temps were in the 40's yesterday and very breezey, but good weather for fixing fence. Mike did most of it, while I make another pen for guineas keets...time to move them out of big rabbit cage. Willow finally got to go in with whisper, as ponies and all went into the hay field, now they have 10 acres to run and run they did, of course Willow limped most of the time after, but so good to hear the "thunder of hooves" even if they were little beats.

Sounds like Peaches has learned what she can get away with. Do you get to ride her often, or just once in a while?
We've had more rain the last week too, mostly just little amounts that barely get the ground wet, but we had a really good rain sunday, which we desperately needed. Allie has been doing well in the roundpen. I hate that after 6 mo riding, we're back in there, but it was the only safe way I figured we could try loping again. I got a new shower curtain for the house and cut the old one to make a cowboy curtain and hung it from the gate into the roundpen yesterday. It took her a while before she would go through, but once she did, I think she enjoyed it.
Well, hope you get to ride today and yall dry out a bit. Take care.

I had a long talk with Mistit while I brushed her, she just kept nodding her head agreeing with me, about it time to have that baby.....its been a long summer, on baby watch.
Sunday vote from Whisper, Willow and the little herd for you. NIce out today....so far...getting some jobs done outside, that usually is too hot out in the morning to do. Trying to move the turtle cage out to the shed for the little keets, because they are out growing their rabbit cage. The turtle cage is about 5 feet high, 4 ft wide and 10-12 ft long, and no bottom, so they can learn to scratch in the dirt. Because its made from chicken wire, I can put long sticks in for roosts, also put branches, and plants so that they learn to hide in the grasses. I feed them clover and grasses now, but cut it up with the scissors. They are too small to be out with the little chicks, yet. The keets have one fault, they hide their little heads into a hole....like between the hay bales, when being picked on, thinking they can not be seen, but they do not know how to move backwards, only forwards, so they get deep between the bales and die. They are a very smart bird...except for that one stupid fault. So I keep them safe until they are older. Most are spoken for except for the ones I will keep...some different colors than what I have now

Hi Angel Ginger, here's a vote for ya. How old is the young horse? So you had to have a little chit chat with her about where you were going! Been there! Well you could cut through the humidity with a knife. It got worse as the afternoon went on! I worked Paige early and in 40 minutes we were both wet with sweat! Paige got a cold hosing and then I turned it on myself, wet my shirt and pants down, felt good! Ran down town and paid the property taxes, yuk! Got home and seemed like the humidity dropped a little and there was a breeze. Turned the horses out for like 90 minutes and when I went to get them, the humidity was like walking in a sauna room! The green heads were really eating at Paige and she was running up a storm! Got her right away. But her in and by her fan, used a cold towel to cool her down. Indy wasn't as bad, and Bullseye didn't even break a sweat. If the humidity would just take a hike! I could handle the temps! Marion and the blondes.

Wow, Sept 2nd is coming up fast. I bet you're excited. That would be so cool to study equine everything. Sounds like good lessons and a fun trail ride. How old is Peaches? Poor baby doesn't like trail rides? Mine love to get out of the riding ring and go. Of course, they'd rather stay home and graze with their buddies, but if they have to be ridden, they'd rather get of the riding ring. I get tired of doing endless circles myself.
Yep, Allie is learning to do baby turns on the forehand, back a few steps, and get lighter in her turns. And trying to teach her to stop off my seat and a whoa. Sometimes she does, sometimes she isn't paying attention. I've decided to put the round pen back up to reintroduce loping. It's a lot of work and I have so many other chores, but I want to get it done before we start getting rain in the winter and it's too slick to lope safely. Loping is where she got over excited and bolted and bucked before, so I think I need to do it in the confines of a smaller pen.
Well, better get the day going. Hope you have a great hump-day.

i rode Allie this morning and she did well. it's about time to introduce something new, like, gasp! loping! as soon as the riding ring is super dry, maybe we'll give it a go.
hope you are having a great friday. take care.

Hi Angel Ginger, here's a vote for ya. Are you getting excited to be leaving for college soon India? I bet you are. Came home from a horse show, Indy went High Point Gelding and the next day is sick! Fever, punky, off his feed. Today his fever was normal, but still not eating good or drinking well. Getting turned out for grass is helping with his eating and moisture in the grass.

Hope your lesson goes well today and you have fun. The only jumping I usually do is over the assorted logs on trails, though I do have a big pipe, about 2.5 ft diameter that I lunge the horses over from time to time. Sometimes they do it smoothly, sometimes they pop over like it's a big building, and sometimes they scramble over with legs in all directions, lol. But jumping is fun. I once worked at a barn that had a real nice jumping mare, older but sound, and they'd let me take her around their cross country course sometimes, and she was a blast, so smooth and experienced about it.
I had another good ride on Allie this morning. She is making progress, and even though it's slow, it's progress. She's also grown another inch! so she's almost 14.2 hands. I thought she looked bigger.
Well, have a great wednesday. When do head off to Meridith Manor for school?

Thank You for your vote. Raining right now, so perhaps, I can get some time to put the ponies in one group, instead of 4 pages. But I am trying to clean up saddles so I can sell them, with this humidity some of my leather in the tack room is getting mold on it. My grandson is staying for a few days, and I will put his hands to work. Thank You again.

Don't you just love those triple digits (NOT!). It's not been that hot here, but in the center of the state, where I grew up, it has been. That's one reason I moved away, lol. On a clear day, I can see the mountains, and it's about 5 degrees cooler than lower down the state.
What type of lesson will you have? Dressage, jumping? I've heard of Meridith Manor, they've been around a long time.
I had a good ride on Allie yesterday. She can sometimes turn before I make rein contact, at the walk only, but I love that softness. hope to see more of it as she learns and matures.
Well, stay cool and have a good ride.

Hi Angel Ginger, here's a vote for ya. Oh Meredith Manor is a great school! Wishing you all the best there! I know a few people who have graduated out of there. Well the heat and humidity have returned! Too muggie to ride today, didn't even turn them out! I was being attacked by bugs just mowing the front yard! Honey got her training session, of course she's an angel in the indoor arena. Did lunge Paige for 10 minutes just to keep her tuned up. Then set up the cones and did a few different showmanship patterns with her. Indy got a spa day in the barn in front of several more fans, he enjoyed that. Mo's around and eating, but he hasn't showed his face to me at all! Well tomorrow and the weekend even worse, in the low 90's with high humidity! Marion and the blondes.

Going to be a hot, mucky day, but weather man is calling for bad thunderstorms, for our county and north of us. Mike has to take our son Mike, in for surgery this morning, so since it is nearly a 2 hour drive, he left at 5:30 this morning. My son, needs to have a stint put behind his knee, because his toes are turning black (spot) from lack of blood. Being a diabetic all those yrs has destroyed his blood vessels. If you have extra prayers send them his way. He has already lost his other leg up to his knee about 10 yrs ago.

Party Time again!!
Very humid today, still calling for rain, but high temps too. At least 84 now, but there is a nice breeze too. Had to run to get a part for the tractor, so sort of late for me, about 11 now. We have about 15-16 acres of hay, only cut about half of it down and had a guy round bale it. Going to try out a small sq. baler to put up the hay from new seeding. We did not want to take the chance of getting it down, then get rained on because it is thick. Trouble is no barn the type where you had a hay mount like the old barns. Can store some inside side the shed, but not more than a 150.

Smells so good outside, my son is opening up the hay fields, so the neighbor can come and cut this morning. Little later in July than usually, but Mother Nature just could not stop crying and showering us with her tears. Hope, we get enough hay, but I always buy some small squares for the shed, and what happens to have to stay in it.
Please share this vote with your heard mates, or if you don't have one, then just keep it for your self....and all the love and treats that come with it from Whisper, Willow, and the little herd.

Hi Angel Ginger, here's a vote for ya. India, where are you going to college? Will you be involved with horses at all while in school? Well it was hot, but the humidity got blown away by a nice cool breeze. So the 87 didn't feel all that bad. I did get to ride Paige inside and we worked for like 45 minutes and she was barely wet. But I did have the ceiling fans going and the doorway fans drawing in more cool breezes. Indy got to chill in his stall. After I had lunch and it didn't feel bad out, I turned them all out for 90 minutes to graze. After they came in, I mowed Paige's pasture. Only cause the weeds were hitting her eyes when she was grazing. Don't need eye problems. Honey is doing very well with the new E-Collar. I like the idea of the Beep and the Vibration first, before going to over kill zapping! Marion and the blondes.

Oh cool, equine sciences will be a blast. My niece and her hubby actually bought a house in Ohio cause he'll be working just across the line in WV, so yall may be close. You're moving a good ways from home. That would be great to have that equestrian center like you dream of.
Got a ride in on little Allie yesterday and she did pretty good. We're trotting now and shes guiding better at the trot, though not great. It'll be time to try riding her in the pasture soon and then start loping a bit. I tried loping last week but she had absolutely no steer or stop at that gait, so I'm not in a rush to do it again till she's more solid.
Well, hope you have a great sunday. Take care.

Good Morning vote from Whisper, Willow, and the little herd. "Today" I take it all back about Pickles being a "problem child", he was so good, I guess him having to be in the other pen, made him be on his best behavior. So, he got staked outside of the pen, (with Mistit) as a treat. Let me put his halter on and gave him a treat, and he followed me out, without tugging, did a few whoa, and "kissing" to step up. We'll see what the day brings with him.

Hi. HC still doesn't let me search for people so I haven't been able to get to your page in forever, but the HOTD today had a blog from you from years ago. Hope you're doing well. What have you been up to?
We've been fine. I've been able to work Allie a fair amount this summer. Her training has been exceptionally slow, not cause she's dumb but because she's so very resistant to steering. It took 5 months to be able to guide her lightly at the walk (usually takes 3-4 weeks tops to do that), so now we're working at guiding at the trot. She bolted and threw my niece back in April loping, and I tried a lope the other day, but I couldnt any more steer or stop her than you could a log, so loping will have to wait. BJ can't breathe well in the summer with his heaves, so I'm not riding him. I do get on Gracie once in a while.
Well, headed to work, gotta scoot. Hope you're doing well and having a great summer.

hi. it's taken me forever to find you again. when i search, it just comes up the people who have blogged you.
how have you been? how was school this semester? are you getting some horse time?
we have been doing okay. my good gelding, BJ, the one who's had several health issues in his young 7 years, contacted EPM this fall. it took me a while to diagnose him, my fault, because it was mild and looked more like a musculo-skeletal problem. so i finally had the vet out, and he did a month of the med for EPM, and improved by about 50%. watching him now for relapse, and also doing ground work with him to help him rehab his damaged nerves and muscles. it'll take the months to years to recover from, if at all, but im seeing improvement already, albeit slowly.
ive also been riding Allie some, as the rain allows. she's coming along slowly, slower than the QHs, but i dont think it's an intelligence problem. she seems very smart, just thinks a little differently than most horses (and is also very strong willed). having had a mustang, you may be able to relate. did you find that Ginger learned and reacted a little differently from other horses? im having a good time with Allie, and i think im going to really enjoy her when she gets things figured out.
well, hope you're ready for Christmas. it's sure coming on fast. if i dont talk to you before then, have a very Merry Christmas and a great New Year.

Yep, it's about 10 degrees cooler here than it was in the summer too. Sure beats those hot hot temps. The horses are getting fuzzy and soft now, but not shaggy yet. Always makes me want to hop on bareback, lol.

Good Morning, we left a vote..
So far so good for the vaky, I had a dentist appointment yesterday, perfect because it rained most of the morning. It was actually torrential downpours so the horses stayed in until I got home. They got out early afternoon, the breeze made the heat bearable. Today is still humid but a bit cooler. We hopefully will get a ride, Greg is coming to do feet tomorrow afternoon, Charlie is looking good, we bumped him up to 4 week rotation and it seems to be helping that cracked toe. A bit hard on the pocketbook but what the heck. He is worth it. Love Donna Lee
