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, left a vote. Did our homework again today, he is getting pretty good with it now. We are moving the hindquarters, forequarters, flexing, backing, all in stage one. We will be learning stage 2 this weekend. I introduced him to the mounting block today. Didn't bother him. I got on the high step, making noise, flapping my arms about, he was looking at me like I had lost my mind! LOL! Maybe I have Zip! LOL!

there's always an unfortunate amount of judging going on, and im glad you're ignoring it and doing what you love anyway. way to rise above the petty attitudes!
i hope this semester isnt going to be a bugger and smooths out.
my crew are doing well.BJ had a limp going for several days, but was sound on it yesterday. not sure what he did, and i'll give him another couple of weeks off depending on how he's doing. my niece's black mare has already started shedding a little bit. she usually doesnt start until feb. her dark color stays so warm and she's usually the first to start, but it seems awfully early. Allie's coat doesnt get long in the winter so much as it gets thick. she's an island pony, so i always hope she is warm enough in the upstate, but i think she is. she certainly doesnt act cold.
well, hope you have a good wed. take care.

Hi, left a vote. Did our homework again today, he did great. I put a lightweight saddle on him, then did the homework again, then lunged him lightly. He just didn't care about that saddle! I hope we keep this trend going! LOL!

A BEAUTIFUL SERVICE...
It was an absolutely fabulous service. We were late starting because they had trouble getting everyone into the funeral home. Jackie's bell ringers, rang us(the family) to our seats, it was beautiful. some of Jackie's favorite music was played while they tried to get everyone seated. 3 different ministers briefly spoke and we prayed.. Jackie's son in law gave a wonderful speech, we all laughed right out loud, we all cried a bit and then 2 of her grandchildren spoke, they were just amazing, what nice kids. Adam played Amazing Grace on his bagpipes, so lovely. The bell ringers rang us all out and we went for lunch at a hall, it was a huge group of people all for Jackie, it was wonderful to see all her nieces and nephews there, Trevor came with some of the boys from London, one of the nieces came from BC and some cousins came from Scotland and North Carolina and California. There is a huge hole in that community and in the hearts of us who loved her, she is safe now, we left a vote, Love Donna Lee

THANKS FOR THE PRAYERS, IT HELPS A LOT.....
Today will be the tough one, Jackie's grandson Adam wants to play his bagpipes at the service, Amazing Grace, she was so proud of her family. Jackie was in a Bell Ringer group and they want to do something at the service as well, she was a very active member of her community and visitation was wonderful, people were lined up outside the building to get in to see her family, I'm going to need lots of tissues today....she will be missed, We left a vote, Love Donna Lee

SAD NEWS TO SHARE....
David's sister, Jackie has lost her battle with cancer. She was a 5 year breast cancer survivor and this dreadful disease returned this fall, after lots of tests etc. it was determined to be in her liver, gall bladder and ovaries it was inoperable, in early December they gave her 3-6 months, she died on Sunday afternoon, with her family close by. Jackie spent her entire life giving to others, we called her Saint Jackie, she will be missed. Love Donna Lee

I want a good pair of western riding boots. I'll live in them. Lol. I'm not sure when Rick will get the shed up. With the Super Bowl, and the upcoming events, he has to work overtime. He works at a grocery warehouse. Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter, any day that includes food and alcohol, means no days off. He does have Friday, but says he's not doing anything. Understandable, but hard to wait. Austin and I went out to checkout the spot where I want it. Need to level the ground, Getting a good shovel this weekend, so I can start on it. Seems to take me forever to get something done. Ready to get in gear and take a picture of it......And thanks for the birthday wishes. Love and a vote.

your thinness and youthfulness will come in handy as you get older, but i know it can feel like a handicap now. so gald you will be riding and giving lessons in college. are you in an equine field at school? i did some intercollegiate horse shows in college, although it wasnt my major. it was fun.
well, was able to ride again yesterday, though it was windy, so there were a few spooks about. off to work today. hope you have a good monday.

BIG ADVENTURE...
I was just putting away some laundry, as I passed by the window upstairs I glanced out only to see Charlie and Sterly strolling out back of the barn, the gate wide open. I freaked, called David, by the time I got outside heading for the barn to get leads and a bucket of feed, they were on the road heading for the woods, shear panic....I called, shook the bucket, they looked at me and turned around, thru the ditch full tilt toward me, but I could not catch either of them, David came around the corner of the barn and Sterly trotted right up to him, he got her halter and Charlie followed...too much excitement for me, Love Donna Le

IT HAS BEEN A BUSY WEEK.....
Good morning India, sorry I can't get on every day, this full time job really gets in the way. i log on every morning at 3AM to vote HOTM, but I can only blog with my friends on weekend. Yes, cremation is expensive, but Jackie only weighed 200 pounds so I could afford him, with Mackie, his heart was the problem and the cardiologist that looked after him was a woman, she was so caring with me that day,she was actually doing a study of racehorse hearts that year, she had designed a special girth they can wear while racing. She said that it was important for me to understand that it was not my fault, generally horses do not show signs of heart condition until it is too late. I wanted the chance to have Mackie help other horses with heart conditions. When Sterly goes (no time soon, I hope) I will somehow find the money to cremate her as well, the folks that own this place where we live do not want her buried on the property, but I can't just let dead stock come and take her away... we left a vote. It has been a busy week at work. I did my groceries last night after work, Friday night in a grocery store, I must be out of my mind...
Charlie seem to be doing well with his new diet and feet are good because we have a nice snow cover, so fingers crossed that things keep going in this direction, I need a break, have a great weekend, Love Donna Lee

I am so stressed out between yesterday and today!!! I think a barn day is in order! LOL I don't know how the gals are that got kicked, probably won't know anything until Monday.

Rick saw the fork lift driver hitting the door frame. He said the man ran into it at least 3 times, then had to go out a side gate. I didn't see it, because I was checking out the display shed. Lowes told Rick they found another shed in stock. They're delivering it in the morning and not charging me for the delivery. Going to put it up behind Rick's metal storage container. It'll be protected from most of the wind. Will still anchor it. Love and a Happy Friday vote.

glad you're getting some horse time. i know you dont have a lot of free time, what with school and all, but it seems like there are always a lot of people who dont get the time to work their horses and would be tickled to have someone give them a hand.

I posted a picture of the display of the shed I bought. When we got the shed home, unassembled, of course, I found it was damaged. The man, operating the forklift, kept running into the door frame with it when he was bringing it out of the store. I called Lowes. They're out of stock. I bought the last one, so they're ordering me one online with the refund from the shed I bought today. They're suppose to wave the shipping cost. I have to buy shingles for it. I did buy particle board for the floor. Going to have to anchor it, too, because those summer monsoon winds are what wrecked my other shed. Love to each of you and a vote.

HI, left a vote. What a day at the barn. As I pulled up, Nancy hollered at me that they were going to work with the youngsters today. Great, I will get Zip. We turned them all out together in the arena to run and roll before we started to work. Poor Zip got kicked 30 seconds after I put him out there. Poor guy, looked at me like "What did I do"? He is okay. There were 4 horses out there, all geldings, all 2-3 years old. Tasha, Nancy, Katie, and I all walked out there. Zip walked right up to me, so I put his lead on, and lead him away from the others. Good thing I did that! Tasha got "X" and tied him up. Nancy and Tasha were standing close to each other, and then all heck broke loose. I don't know really what happened next. I was talking to Zip and not really paying attention! LOL Just as I turned to look at the gate where Nancy and Tasha were, one of the geldings was standing next to Nancy, and Katie and the other gelding was approaching them. I think the gelding next to Nancy went to kick out at the other gelding but kicked with both hind feet and got Katie! She went down, the horses took off knocking Nancy down! Zip and I are standing there watching this all go down. He just stood there, never had a reaction as this was happening and the other horses running around. Tasha helped Nancy up, she is okay. Zip and I headed over to Katie, she got up, brushed herself off, and went on to work the horse that kicked her. She is okay. Horse got both her hips. She is bruised and sore, she even rode a little later. So glad they are both okay. That really freaked me out! So proud of Zip to just take all of that craziness in stride. Amber would have freaked out, and probably gotten away from me.

NO SHOES< FOR NOW...
Hi India, when my little pony, Jackie died we had him cremated and buried him in the pasture, he had chronic laminitis and so he could not have grass and had to stay on the dirt paddock when the other two were grazing, so after he died I thought it was nice to put him on the grass...when Mackie died, I had to take him to the Equine Hospital and when they gave me the diagnosis, I decided to donate his body for research so that he might help other horses with heart conditions, no matter how you do it it is hard, Love ya girl. I have always thought that it is a good idea to give the feet a rest and not be shod full time. But with Charlie's many hoof issues, what is a girl to do? Now that we have a good layer of snow, Charlie is doing well, so after talking with Greg and Dr. C, we decided to leave him alone for now, if he turns up sore back on they go, and they have to go back early in the spring, I'm OK with this. We left a somewhat warmer -7 vote, Love Donna Lee

HAVE I EVER MENTIONED, I HATE WINTER????
It has been a rough week, wicked weather, snow and blowing snow. A couple of pretty scary drives to work. Temp this morning is sitting at -15, that is quite a bit warmer than it has been, wind chill feels like -30. My guys have been in for 3 days, I'm going to try to get them out for a bit this morning. Greg is planning on putting Charlies's shoes back on this morning. Charlie is lovin' his new diet. I'm drying cabbage again this weekend. We left a warm vote, Love Donna Lee

I'm anxious to get the hay shed. I'm looking at a couple. Interested in the 4' x 8' lean to. It's wood and is only $397 plus tax, of course. I buy 3 bales of hay every 2 weeks. There'd be room for other things, too. Will have to brace it because of the winds here. Will post a picture, too. Hugs and a vote.
