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!!!.

Doesn't sound wimpy at all, says the lady from SC, lol. We've had similar weather the past few weeks and its just cold and raw outside. This week is supposed to be wet but warmer.
I have a dressage saddle too and its also really comfortable. I usually ride western though, partly cause I like western tack, and partly cause I've never had a very good seat-a spook can undo me easily. Its a bugger to love riding and not be very good at it.
Your cob headstall might fit a lot of future horses, but I can see where you'd need a horse sized one too.
Well, its Monday again. Hope you have a good one.

Come visit me, Allie, congrats Cisco HOTM! & BJ and his mom,Gracie.

Wow, your saddle sounds great. Yeah, when everyone else is riding a brown one, your black saddle will stand out. Do you have a blk headstall to match?
Nothing much going on here. Its been too wet to ride hardly any. The chicks we got a couple of weeks ago are doing well, though they're at that ugly stage where they're half feathers and half down with their long scrawny necks. They grow really fast.
Well, hope you have a good Sunday.

Just light snow today...
Good morning all, well my OT day was shorter than expected. Not a bad thing, and it was OK. I was bundled up with many layers to keep warm and as a volunteer they almost always give you an easy job to do. When I got home, I got most of the laundry done and hung out with Charlie and Sterly in the bright sunshine, chopped ice away from the door. Both horses are doing well, I can't wait for spring, I think I have mentioned just how much I HATE winter...we left a vote, Love Donna Lee

what color is your new saddle? have you tried it out on a horse yet? that's a big purchase and exciting to get.
I figured they let you ride Athena because you can handle her, but probably don't let many other folks ride her. she sounds like a hand full.
it was too drizzly and muddy to ride yesterday, but I enjoyed brushing and visiting my herd at their dinner time. I found an old pic of BJ as a yearling. ive gotten so used to seeing him grey, that it was weird seeing him the dark red-brown he used to be.
well, sounds like you're in for it, weather wise. ugh. spring has to be right around the corner, right? take care and have a good Monday.

Good Morning my friends, So sorry for not being on yesterday, i have no excuse other than I can't seem to shake out of this slump I'm in....I truly can not take much more of this weather, soooo cold. Charlie and Sterly are taking it all in stride, they have had to stay inside a few days due to the extreme cold wind chill, but mostly they are out and lovin' it, silly horses, we left a vote, talk soon, Love Donna Lee

congrats on getting a new saddle. is it synthetic? they're so light and easy to care for.
I hear you on being a southern gal. more and more, I realize im right where I belong. I like lots of sun and warm days.
glad you had a good lesson. Athena sounds like quite a challenge to ride. actually, she doesn't sound like she's cut out to be a lesson horse. im sure you're up to the challenge though.
well, hope you have a good Saturday and get some more horse time.

I've had it with WINTER...
It is still only -24 this morning, but no wind, thank God. I did get them out for a couple of hours yesterday when the wind shifted to the North. The barn is sheltered on the North, the sun was lovely and they need to be out. We are celebrating Family Day here in Ontario, love my long weekends, we left a vote, Love Donna Lee

so glad you had a horsey day- those are wonderful. I understand about the cost of horse ownership being too high. boarding is often very expensive.
ive been hobbling around and getting some riding and groundwork done. we had some very strong winds last night so I have a cedar to cut up, but I hope that's all the damage we had. driving home last night was scary- I just kept praying a tree didn't fall on the car. gotta check the roof for damage too.
well, hope you have a good sunday and take care.

-25 C = --13 F
OMG, this is the coldest night of the winter so far, and I know I have mentioned how much I HATE winter, this temp is without the wind chill, you can't even imagine how much I do not want to go outside. I went to feed at 4AM, both Sterly and charlie had frost on their whiskers....I guess that answers my question as to whether they go out today or not, looks like NOT...we left a vote, Love Donna Lee PS our wind chill is -40 C

hope your week is going well. we enjoyed a really horsey day yesterday. we rode our horses in the morning and then went over to a friend's and rode their horses while we visited. so much fun. got home in time to head back outside and feed our critters. ahhhh, I could do that every day, if it weren't for responsibilities.
well, have a good thur and take care.

just checking in on you. hope you've had a good week.
did some groundwork with Allie on thur and fri. I had her saddled up and my city son came over to talk and get more of his stuff, and just hopped up on her. he almost never gets on a horse, and he hops up on an unbroken filly! good heavens! Allie did well, bug-eyed, but relaxed as we just stood and talked, and he finally slid off. no riding, just sitting. I was proud of them both. rode Gracie yesterday, and she was a bit spooky in the wind, but settled down after a while.
well, hope school and work are going well, and have a good sunday.

IS IT SPRING YET???
I love that profile pic of Sterly, it is from years ago, she has always had such a great winter coat, she is a winter kind of girl, not so much me...I keep her in her stall overnight now, but back in the "old days" she stayed out 24/7 and loved it, she of course had shelter if she chose, but most often she chose not to be inside, I love that old girl, if all horses were like her, everyone would have a horse, have a great day, we left a vote, Love Donna Lee

♥ I have had a relaxing nice 7 days off work. I did have time to groom, play, watch and ride the horses. I also enjoyed my other animals as well. I seemed to have finished a lot that I had planned but rested as much as possible. I have also made a to do list for myself for the warmer days like, clean feed buckets, clean and oil saddles and bridles, wash saddle pads, clean out tack room (I started that on my vacation) and at some point (lol) I want to clean the panels between the stalls and paint-not sure if that will ever happen but I put it on my list. Good to be back at a computer instead of using my phone. Have a wonderful weekend <)__~

MORE SNOW, GRRRR....
I can't believe I am hoping that it stays cold...but the forecast is for ice pellets and freezing rain, if it stays cold it will be snow, I guess if I have to pick, I'd take the stupid snow, actually I'd take spring and soon. I'm drying some more cabbage for my boy today, I still have not found a dehydrator, but my friend at work is good about loaning hers, I just hate to borrow stuff.

HAVE I EVER MENTIONED, I HATE WINTER????
I could not get to work on Monday, terrible blowing snow, I couldn't get out of the driveway, David tried to get up to the road, if it is really bad he will drive me to work. When he got back he said this is a bad idea, you better saty home, we had 77 call ins at work that day....Today we are all off, they are doing some maintenance in the plant, this will be a very small pay cheque, oh well, we will manage.

I homeschooled my son his last 2 years of high school and he picked up some dual enrollment classes too. It gets you off to a good start. His college classmates accused him of being an overachiever, hehe. Anyway, maybe its good you're busy if you don't have friends to hang out with, and I remember you said you like to stay busy. Any chance of getting another horse? Or will you wait until you finish all your schooling?

Tired from the long work weekend. We weren't busy Sunday night, because of the Super Bowl being here. Hours dragged by. Thankful to have Monday off. Rained hard here Saturday. Should have the shed up next weekend. Crossing my fingers. Love to each of you and vote.

I had the other problem growing up. My sister and best friend were thin and pretty, and I never got looked at twice. Looking at pics, I realize I wasn't ugly and fat like I thought i was, just lacked confidence, and people pick up on that. Just be you and enjoy the people around you and you'll have your own fan club.
I know you miss your horses. The college years can feel kind of isolated too. Its worth it though, and it really will be over one day. You'll graduate and be glad you did. I hope you get some horse time in the meantime. Have a good Sunday.

Hi, left a vote. Just got back from the clinic. It was 30 this morning, and really foggy. So cold out, not good when you are fighting a cold. Fog is finally now burning off.

The clinic was great. We were the only ones there this morning, so we got nearly 4 hours of one on one time! We needed it! LOL Looking forward to working on all that we learned from this clinic.

I want to thank you all for your support of Zip for his hotm run. Not sure if we will get it, but we made some new friends along the way. Thank you all!

Raining. It's suppose to rain through Saturday. Got a lot done on the shed, but the sides haven't been put on it. Still need shingles, too. Had Austin pick up a tarp in town and covered the floor of it, and Rick and I put the sides in his metal container. Should be able to get it finished weekend after this one. Did get the yard light replaced. So nice to have it working, again! Have an amazing weekend. Stay safe and warm. Love and a vote.

We will be learning stage 2 this weekend. I introduced him to the mounting block today. Didn't bother him.

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.

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

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.

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
