Type of Riding: We did english equitation, 2' hunters, western pleasure, trail, english pleasure, bareback, elementary dressage, and jumpers. The last year of her life her health prevented any kind of riding though.

My Horse's Achievements: She did not trust people when I first met her. In fact is was teriified of them. With patience and understanding I won her. Everyone told me she would never jump or be anythign that I wanted her to be. They were wrong. She was the most talented horses that ever crossed my path. She had nothing that would make her famous, but everything that would make her memory cherished most. I love you sweet girl.

Pet Peeves: She dosen't like vets or farrirs but other then that shes pretty good.

My Horse's motto: Dream big! Always, always shoot for the dtars. Miracles do happen

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. 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.

Come visit me, Allie, thanks everyone for June HOTM! & BJ and his mom,Gracie.

Glad school is going well. Almost everyone I know hates math, imagine that. Only one or two who love it.
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.
Well, hope you have a great friday and weekend coming up.

Friday already....
I wish I knew why vacation days go faster than work days....they just do. Both Charlie and Sterly got feed done yesterday, Charlie needed new shoes, his old ones had way too many miles on them, I noticed one was a bit loose a day or so ago. He is good to go now. Sterly is like the Queen of great feet, she is sooo easy, love that old girl. Have a great day, we left a vote, Love Donna Lee

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

Hi Ginger, here's a vote for ya. Well it was the worst of the heat today! Bu 3 pm we hit a high of 95 degrees! I have the horses out earlier in the day, and poor Indy once again was covered in sweat and flies from trying to run away from them. IF he didn't get himself all wet, they probably won't have been as bad! I did weed whack and mow the baby pasture and the once next to it along with the entrance way to the indoor. But I was cooking myself doing it. So then it was Tractor Supply for grain for Paige and some salt blocks. Home and in the house in the A/C! Hopefully some rain showers tomorrow and a little cooler.

Mom is doing a little better. her progress is slow, but at least she's making progress, thanks for asking.
how is school going? are you seeing any cooling yet in your weather? seems like other HC folks in Tx report slight cooling but still pretty hot. about the same here. if it's cloudy, it's pretty nice. if it's sunny, it's hot.
I was able to work Allie this morning and finished by flexing her from the saddle and even walking her around a little. she's beginning to get the hang of the bit...barely, but a step in the right direction. and she stayed calm and relaxed throughout the whole lesson, so we're both happy.
the rest of the week is work and chores, so she'll get a break. we're actually getting rain at the moment and supposed to get more tomorrow. always grateful for that.
hope youre having a great Tuesday and some horse time.

Finally some rain....
Actually, I just came in from the barn and it is pouring. My sad pastures need it, however it is not going to break the heat and humidity, we are under an alert until Thursday. So, we do our temps in Celsius, to compare for you, 32C=89.6F add in a humidex of 40. That means it feels like 40C or 104F. Don't get me wrong, I love summer, but this is soo hard on people and animals. This is the first day back to school for Canadian kids. We left a soggy vote, Love Donna Lee

my niece was homeschooled too, bad in math, and is now at tech. she says that math is finally making sense to her, and though she has to work at it, she's passing it (if that's any encouragement). so far, im liking homeschooling, I see some positive things in her already, like better manners, more self- discipline to get her work done and over with, and being a little more active. no, neither of my kids are in to horses at all, though my niece, who is living with me while she works and goes to school, is totally into them. no accounting for genetics, lol.
hope you've had a great Labor Day weekend. our weather was pretty nice today, overcast and breezy most of it, but when the sun came out, it got a bit warm. no riding today, did school and then some help came over and we worked on the pool again. I need to go get 100 lbs of filter sand and some blocks to set the pump on, hook all that up, and then figure out how to get in and out of the pool. they sent a ladder, but it's made to bolt onto a deck, and we don't have that yet. that's about 4 items down the project list, lol.

A VOTE FOR YOUR ANGEL HORSE
Charlie and I have been getting our ride in early in the morning to avoid the heat and humidity. Yesterday my brother and sister in law were out for a drive and they stopped in, we had a little visit and then they invited us to come in to town for dinner, ribs on the Bque, we said great, we picked up a cheesecake in town and had a lovely dinner and visit. Have a great day, did I mention I'm on vacation, hee haw. Love Donna Lee

I did some groundwork with Allie yesterday morning and then got on and flexed her with the bit. she hasn't been ridden for about 3 weeks, but she did well. she is naturally stiff and resistant, so I guess the softening to the bit will be a work in progress.
went out to crank the car after work and didn't get so much as a click when I turned the key. and of course, I had forgotten my phone. security came by and jumped me off, and I planned to drive the 30 miles home straight to an auto parts store, but the electronics were weird and the car wasn't driving right. so I said a prayer and took the next exit, not knowing if there was anything on that road that would help, and not a half mile down, there was an auto parts store. wow! they installed a new battery and I was safely on my way. thank God! so that was my adventure for the day.
well, hope you have a great sunday. take care.

HOT HAZY HUMID....
In case you all think that we in Canada are under snow 12 months of the year, surprise, this was the hottest July on record and so far this September we have had 4 days with extreme heat alerts, that happens when the actual temp is over 90 and the humidity makes it feel like over 100. It is never too hot for me but seriously this humidity is oppressive, it is very hard on people and animals with breathing issues, namely my Sterly, so she is out very early and in by noon. This is suppose to break by Tuesday. Have a great "cool" day, Love and a vote, Donna Lee

Hi Angel Ginger, here's a vote for ya. Well slowly the temps are going up again, and the humidity they said will return. But today it was just hot! 82 degrees and very sunny, with not much wind. Did ride Paige late this morning and she was great. I think I'm gonna stick to the baby corrector bit, she really gives better to it than the A-frame. Then I hosed her off. Ran downtown to Tractor Supply for some more bug juice! For the first time in years, I was scrapping off Bot eggs on her rear lets! I saw a bot fly hanging around Indy the other day too. Haven't seen them around in years! Anyhow, they were out this afternoon while I weeded the outdoor arena and picked rock up there. Marion and the blondes.

Glad you're excited to be back at school. It's started here mid August, so everyone is in full swing. I'm homeschooling my daughter this year-she's in the 7th grade- because she was having so much trouble in math and wasn't getting the help she needed at school. So far, it's going pretty well, she's learning that if she buckles down and focuses, she can get through her work earlier than if she daydreams all day. On those days, school goes until 5 or 6 pm, lol.
I've had to put Allie's training on hold for now, I'm just so busy. My mom has been sick, and my sister in law is almost blind from glaucoma and is needing more and more help. I did get to play with Allie a bit yesterday, did some groundwork and practiced putting the bridle on and off. She's getting better with that.
Well, hope the school year goes well. What are you studying? Have a good weekend and take care.

Hi India,
It has been a crazy few months, work has been nuts trying to catch up after the Avian Flu. Things are settling down a bit, but we also have some new management in my department that are not helping efficiency, my opinion, just saying.... Add to that Hot Hazy and Humid summer, it feels like all I do is work, chores and sleep. I have a week off and am soooo looking forward to the rest. Sterly and Charlie are doing very well, both have dealt with the heat quite well, we watch Sterly closely for any breathing issues and get her inside with her big fan during the hot part of the day. Have a great weekend, and thanks for continuing to visit even when I have not been the best friend...Love Donna Lee

Thank you all, again, for voting Sadie September HOTM. Since I didn't run her and missed a few days of voting, I was, and am, so surprised. I went out to spend some time with her, Wednesday evening. I asked her, "How the heck did you get HOTM?" She gave me attitude and walked away. Lol. She had great timing. A heartfelt thanks, lots of love and a vote.

Hi Angel Ginger, here's a vote for ya. Well did a lot of running around this morning, so no riding time when I got home. But the kids did go out almost 2 hours in the heat and today I double sprayed them with their fly spray. All was good. Okay, it was a lucky lottery day for me. Our local radio station has a contest Monday thru Friday every week. Questions about all different things, and every week it's a new prize for those 5 days. I usually try to win when it's something I can really use. This week it's lottery tickets. (Remember I won the rodeo tickets in June.) So yep, I was the first caller and I knew the correct answer. So in running my errands, I went there and got my 5 tickets. Hit on 4 of them for a total of $110. I'm so happy! Marion and the blondes.

Hi!
The place I volunteer at is Horses of Hope (or HOH) and it is located around Jersey Shore, PA. That's about an hour drive from where I live but it is well worth that drive.

Right now we just do classwork and the next class is September 5th. We mainly muck stalls, etc. But it is still well worth it because that stuff needs done too.

Hi Angel Ginger, here's a vote for ya. Got a few things done today before the unexpected rains moved in. Had an awesome ride on Paige. I think the few days off this week did her good after showing three shows in row. Did start to pledge the wood in the trailer, bathroom done, now the kitchen and living area and top up by the bed is all cabinets to do. Did turn the horses out in the mild rain, they didn't care and it was a nice cool type of rain, so no bugs. So I guess I did manage to accomplish some stuff after all. Marion and the blondes.

A Vote for You!!
I know how hard it is to loose someone you love so much. My Crimson broke her back leg (fetlock)as a baby. Vets wanted to just put her down, but my farrier, made her a cast and she lived to be 26, past away early 2014. But the worst thing, is my son died 3 years ago, and also 2 of my sisters and my Dad, not all at the same time, but all within a 3-4 yr time. I have never really had time to cry over any thing, because my other son had to have transplants, and my husband over the last 3 yrs, had to have both knees and hips replaced. I am afraid if I start crying, I will never stop. At least you know what love is, think of all the people who never even knew that.

Happy late birthday, Ginger.
I'm so sorry it's being so hard to get over losing her. I mourned my first horse's death for 4 years, really, until I got another horse. Like you, I was in school when she died and didn't have the money or time to get another until I graduated. It's a hard time in your life to loose a best friend, not that it's ever easy. I hope you can find comfort in remembering the good times you had with her. There's nothing like your first horse.
