How We Met

Dee fought to protect her herd when a cougar came though our place. :-( unfortunately though Dee did not survive. She will be missed.
Went with a friend to look at a horse and Dee was there. My friends husband said, you want her you better get her because I'm not coming back out this way.

17 Then was fulfilled what was spoken by Jeremiah the prophet, saying:

Lamentation, weeping, and great mourning,
Rachel weeping for her children,
Refusing to be comforted,
Because they are no more."

Happy Thanksgiving!
Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you are having a wonderful and happy Thanksgiving. I hope you're enjoying lots of good food with your family and friends. We have much for which to be thankful. And we just ate our BIG meal and are stuffed!

I am lucky to have such great friends as you who love me even though I'm so bad about getting online and writing. I miss you and just wish I had more time to write. Sigh! Such is life…

I treasure your friendship and even though I'm not always around I think of you often. Thank you for being there for me!

I'm also very grateful to have another horse living with us now. Eddie's been here for 2 months now but he's so settled in it seems like we've had him forever. He and Pippin are great friends but with their size difference and their perky personalities I don't trust them to be alone together. So, Eddie has a smaller fenced in section of Pippin's big day pen and they spend lots of time right against each other with the fence in between. And yes, Pippin is boss!

We walk them together with the dogs and they drive their own carts. Eddie takes 2 steps while Pippin takes 20. They are adorable! And we keep stopping traffic! hehe

Happy Thanksgiving! And here's a vote on this special day.

PS I'm so very sorry to learn about your loss of Dee. What a brave horse she was and I know she'll always have a place in your hearts.

Come visit me, Prince, Pippin (Remembering Melian) & Eddie.

I hope everyone enjoyed their Veterans day ride. Thanks again to Fancy and Frances for doing that special page. I've been enjoying spending time with Susie and the herd. Just taking her out to graze and feeding the others grass over the fence while they follow us along. Tending to Susie's wound and feeding them all carrots as a treat for being so good. They are all just being so patient while waiting for Susie to heal. I posted three new pics below. The first one shows where they shaved Susie's hair under her mane and took the 22 hair plugs for her wound. The second pic is the most recent one of her wound and the third pic was the first one taken after they transplanted the hair plugs. I know they don't look too good...but there has been some improvement. Leaving a late night vote for ya.

Hi Angel Dee, here's a vote for ya. Hope you pass the test with flying colors! Today was a no ride day for both horse's. Did go with the dump truck and get 5 tons of sand for the indoor and level out all the low spots. Hopefully done now for a year! then went and got a load of stone dust for the driveway down to the barn and fill and level that. so 5 hours later, it's all done. Kids were out, it was like 65 again today and sunny most of it. Riding lesson tomorrow morning for Paige and my trainer and then me and Paige. Can't wait. Marion and the blondies.

Hi, Left a vote, after a fairly nice Sunday afternoon, today was just ugly. very windy, and tons of rain. The guys stayed out in most of it. Then David got worried that Sterly would get a chill, so he brought them back in, he worries almost as much as me if you can imagine. I didn't get my ride yesterday, I decided to play it safe, I really can't risk more injury to this arm, I really need it go get better soon. I did however, enjoy the afternoon, just hanging out with them. I have therapy tomorrow and Wednesday, so I may not be on. Talk soon, Love Donna Lee

Hi Angel~~~
Susie is doing great! She had her procedure done this past Monday. We will call it "hair plugs" because actually that is what its like. They removed clumps of hair about the size of pencil lead from under her mane. Then they planted them in the wound. This way the hair and skin will grow over the wound. In five days we can pick her up. Then we have to bring her back in another five days to check. Then she should be good to go! Can't wait...this is getting to be a bit much. When Susie gets something...it has to be BIG! Leaving a late night vote.

Hi Sweet Angel DK!
The wound on Susie's leg started out as just a small round bump. It then progressed to the lesion that is pictured at the bottom of her page. We took her to LSU and there they surgically removed the lesion. So now it is a matter of time before the surgical wound is completely healed. She is now having skin graphs done to help the wound heal faster. Thanks for asking. Leaving a vote for your sweet Angel DK.

Hi Angel Dee
Left a vote, as promised, here I am with a better attitude. Today was just plain grey and it threatened to rain, but it wasn't so, I tacked him up,ouch....it didn't hurt that bad, and we had a very nice ride, it was cold, but hey, it is fall in Ontario, it is all down hill from here.. I just got back from Zack's class, hurray, I didn't fall down, things are really looking up. On the bad side, it is raining again, Charlie's new pic is of his bitless bridle, I LOVE it, so does he. Talk soon, Donna Lee PS, I know it is none of my business, but, please don't be in a hurry to replace her, give yourself time to grieve, it is important, if you look too soon, you will find that you are looking for another Dee, and there isn't one....

Hi Dee, here's a vote for ya. Maybe just take a little more time looking and the right horse will come along. Or do more work with Memphis and see if using a different saddle pad and girth will help with IV. Well did we have the rains today. Almost 4 inches in a bucket outside the garage! New ditch did it's job, and the roof was spitting any water down onto the riding surface. So hopefully we're good to go now! Paige was awesome for Karen in her lesson and then I had my lesson and assigement on her to work on over the weekend. Had a great ride. Then got Indy and we had fun too, he likes to just walk and jog and do his trail course work, so that's what we did. Marion and the blondies.

Little Cowboy and Trigger did have a wonderful day. After church Little Cowboy let Trigger graze in the back yard before a last ride of summer break from school. They walked a few blocks up and shared their last ride with little girls and boys up the street. I think there were about 15 children k to 5th grade in age. This was a great way to end their break! They were very happy. I see my Little Cowboy loves to share his horsey and see the children so happy. I am trying to teach him that when God blesses you, it is good to should share that blessing with others.


Please pray for Andrea's (with Sweet Pea #192859) grandpa, he has a health issue.

Rest well & be ready for an exciting week back to school!

It was a lovely day until the rains came in. There was a long storm that recently ended. It feels really nice outside these days.
Trigger was blind in one eye before we got him. Monday his blind eye was very cloudy. Today the vet told me Trigger is fine long as he is in no pain. He is such a great kids horse. I hate that something happened to his eye and I pray that I can take good care of him from now on.

Please visit Sassy Sapphire #193884 and leave an encouraging word. From what I can tell, her blog to me says Sassy Sapphire's owner lost her father this past Sunday morning.

One of my friends was out last Saturday at one of the state parks riding and there was an accident. Her friend dismounted to help and her friend's palomino TWH walked off. They were on the news tonight asking for help to find the missing horse. Please pray that they find Jasmine in good health very soon.

Show update: Thursday Cowboy practiced for some events & carrying the flag on Trigger. Friday Fancy & Trigger visited the farrier. We cleaned tack & loaded the trailer Friday evening.
Now for the excitement! Saturday morning, I gave Trigger a bath. I can not clean him up the day before because he will roll extra hard to collect much dirt as he can. I got as much water off him as I could & loaded him in the trailer before he could get dirty. I was standing at the small door latching his halter, something poked out by my feet, I saw a fluffy red-ringed raccoon looking tail swish by my feet & disappear under the trailer. It was a FOX! I fastened the halter & went into the house. The fox stayed under the trailer. My BB gun is very weak. You can see the BB's fall to the ground when you shot it. We wanted the fox to leave, so we got the BB gun after it & it did not move. Several minutes later we saw it go under the drain pipe at the end of our driveway. I was a bit shaky after I realized I had been that close to the fox.
We left a bit later than expected. Fancy stood at the gate, looked square at my face & nickered. I felt like dirt to leave her. As we left she ran back & forth & whinnied loudly. I promised I would make it up to her.

We arrived in time for Cowboy & Trigger to warm up 30 minutes before the show. There were sheep & bulls around the arena this time. Last time there were only bulls. Trigger was not bothered by the bulls, but he did not cotton to the sheep. Cowboy & one of the adult men rode their horses up to the sheep & petted them through the fence. Cowboy dismounted & walked Trigger up to them first, then he rode him up to the sheep. Very smart Cowboy. After that Trigger was ok with the sheep.
Cowboy was galloping with a teen girl he met & he yelled whoa to Trigger & her horse stopped They both got a kick out of that.

Friday we picked up a rain poncho for the just in case. It came in handy as several rain showers passed through during the show.
Cowboy & Trigger won 1st place in Western Walk & Jog 12 & under, 2nd place in Youth Western Go As You Please 12 & under, 1st place in Youth Western Pleasure 12 & under, & 1st place in Youth Catalog Race 12 & under. They also entered the flag race, but his flag fell out of the sand at the very end.
At the end of the show Cowboy took his helmet off and put it on Trigger. I don't know if he thought Trigger needed it or what he was thinking. LOL.

Has any one noticed the changes occurring on HC? Like the non-horsey ads and some of the designs on a few pages are fresh and different. Looks like we will soon have the same format as DC. I have been trying to learn to get around on DC. The voting and blogging process is very slow for me. That is not good. I will keep trying at it. May be there is something I have to figure out. I want to be ready when the format arrives on HC. I am afraid I will not be able to find HC friends after the changes are made.

Nothing going on here but the mudd :)
I hope you are enjoying Fancy's Perceptions, Cowboy Definitions. I find these old time words from the past quite amusing. Have you heard any of these words used on western shows or heard any person using them in conversation? I can imagine how some of these words were used. I have heard some on western shows!

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS, Cowboy Definitions:
1. Big Pasture - The penitentiary
2. Big Sugar - Ranch owner.
3. Bill Show - A Wild West show. Probably derived from the names of the two leading show promoters - William Frederick "Buffalo Bill" Cody and Gordan William "Pawnee Bill" Lillie.
4. Bilk - Cheat.
5. Biscuit - Saddle horn.
6. Biscuit Roller - The cook.
7. Biscuit Shooter - The cook.
8. Bishop - An appendage to a lady's wardrobe, more commonly called a bustle.
9. Bite the Ground - To be killed.
10. Bit House - A cheap saloon.
