How We Met

As a young girl, I loved horses. My best friend lived on a farm and had a pony named Star. I was there all the time. We lived in town and of course couldn't have a horse in the back yard. So, after growing up and finishing school and having a career and getting married, and gettig divorced ang getting remarried, we moved to the country. I leased a horse at a near by stable for about a year and a half, until I was sure I wanted the resonsibility of my own. I heard about Sterl May being available, I eagerly went to meet her, I noticed her beautiful big, soft brown eyes immediately. I put a borrowed saddle and bridle on her and rode her right there in the field with her pasture mate. I knew she was a Standardbred, but that really didn't mean anything to me, she was a horse, she had 4 feet,a head and a tail, and she let me ride her. I decided then and there that I wanted her. I asked the price and her owner told me,she always said she would never give her away. At that time Canada had just done away with our $1 bill and replaced it with a coin, a loonie. She said I can't sell her for $1, because she is NO loonie. Give me $2 and she is yours. I couldn't believe what I was hearing, I handed her a $2 bill. She handed it back to me and said " you keep this $2, as long as you own Sterl May you will never be broke". I still have that $2 bill, it is framed with her reg. papers. I promised her a home until the day she dies. I will keep that promise. I will never be broke as long as she is in my life. She is retired now, all she has to do is look pretty and keep Charlie company. She has Cushing's disease, but she doesn't know, so I'm not going to tell her, she never complains, she willingly takes her meds everyday, she just goes with the flow. She is a very happy horse.

Good Morning!! Sold 25, (really 27) baby chicks and 6 keets, (baby guinea hens) yesterday. So have enough money now to buy feed, and some small square bales of hay. I leave the computer on, and as I come and go in and out the house, stop and leave a vote here and there. Been very busy, with gardening, making a bigger pen for the keets, and helping Mike check the hay field fencing, then keep a eye on the steers, and horses and ponies as the find a big 10 acre field to really open up and run. My brother invited us over for a cook out last night, because my brother is home from Alaska with his family. It's been raining and very muddy again, like the kind of mud that likes to "suck your boots off".

I took Sadie's temperature twice. 98.5. I gave her 2 Pepto Bismol tablets. She ate them like candy and wanted more. Yuck. Thankful that she's doing better. Lots of love and a vote.

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.

Sadie's had diarrhea since Saturday. She's eating good and drinking her water. No change in her diet. I'm thinking maybe it's because the weather's been weird. Any ideas? Thanks. Love and a vote.

Sunday morning vote for you from Whisper, Willow and the little herd. Rain finally left....also left too much mud and big puddles everywhere, and very cool temps....has not been above 65 yesterday and should not get too high today. Nice for working outside, but today is Sunday, and we visit with my Mom for a few hours after dinner. My brother from Alaska is/should be home today, always nice to visit with him and his wife, Cindy and the rest of his family.

Sure was wrong about yesterdays temp, it was hot or maybe just because I was trying to get things done outside. Today it is raining, and should rain on and off all weekend. Maybe...that's a hint of maybe, I will get some house cleaning done. Dishes count for cleaning....maybe I will just leave the cobwebs up until Halloween...if stores can be putting out Christmas decoration early, I will just have to start early for Halloween. Actually, started a few fall projects already. Where the turtle pond was, I am filling that deep hole with veggie scraps and lawn grass that I missed when feeding the grass clippings to the pigs, chicks, and baby guineas....they think its candy, or act like it, when I sprinkle it on the floors. I have saved totes of very dry grass clipping for the winter to line the floors of chicken pens and nest. But I want to plant tulips and fall bulbs in the hole, then put a more flowers over the top....but I can not spell the flower./// I can see what I want in my head....hee, hee.

Not the first time that Sadie's turned on the water. I'm sure it won't be the last time, either. If she thinks about it, she'll do it, again. The only way to keep her from it is to keep her put up. I let her out to get some exercise. She's too sociable to stay in the corral all the time. She amuses me. Love and a it's raining vote.

Sorry I have not been on in quite some time. I've had some vacation time...enjoyed that very much. We made it through all the rain and the flooding. The pasture and barn flooded. It is starting to dry out now. Prayers for all those affected by the flooding. This was really terrible. Wishing everyone a great weekend!

The next couple of days the high for this area of Wisconsin will be in the 60's, not sure what the low will be, but you can tell fall will be coming soon. Hopefully, all the baby chicks will be putting on some fat soon.
Dominic my grandson is here again. If he did not have sports at school, I am sure he would live here. Been working on some craft type things, mainly a wooden board, which he stained, and then drew some drew deer heads he wanted to paint on, but I helped him transfer his ideas on to thin wood, and I cut them out on the skill band saw. I am glad he did not make it into a "30 point buck", like the song they play in deer hunting season. Plan on cleaning out the rabbit cages and chop down more burrdock, my two piles are really big, and my hands are just as sore. Never seem to remember to wear gloves.

Let Sadie out to stretch her legs and get some exercise. She turned on the hose and made herself a lake to play in. She loved it and blew bubbles while wading in it. Brat! She's too dang smart. Oh well, I don't have to water that tree, now. Lol. Lots of love and a vote.

I turned on the sprinkler for Sadie, Monday. She backed that big butt up to it, then laid down and rolled. Scruffy always gets happy when he sees her do that. He ran up to her behind, barking. He ran away from her when she let out a loud fart. Still laughing. Wish I had a video of it. Leaving lots of love and a vote.

Awe Monday, not sure what to do first. Chores are done, need to move the white guineas into the other pen, (getting ready for winter, UGH!!) but they need time to adjust to a different pen and house. After both little dogs went home, I need to wash all their blankets and pads, so they are ready when those little guys return. My cats miss them already. Tomatoes are finally getting ripe, and more cockburrs need chopping down....some of them I feel like hollowing "TIMBER" when they fall. Finish moving the turtle pen into the barn for the baby keets too. Mike has taken Mikey to another dr appointment for his toe, the big sores are infected, even if the drs at Ladysmith say it looks good, I say it needs a "real" doctor to look at it, because it is infected. That's why no one likes going the the Ladysmith Hospital, when a sore has pus, smells, and red....that is what is called infection and needs to be treated.....a patient should not have to beg to get some sort of antibiotics for it.

Thank you soon much
I really appreciate all the help you have given me!! It means so much to me...... I'm sorry, I just wanted to feel like I had other horses because.... I don't get to see Buddy that much and... The owners keep saying he's in so much pain.... And when he looks at me I can tell that he is.... He looks so sad and I know they ate wanting to put him down... But I feel like my mom is telling them not to until we move... So I won't get hurt.... But I can't talk to her or I'll start crying.. And it will just make me feel even worse.... But thank you...

Hey guys please check out profile #280567, this young lady wants a horse soooo bad. she put up 3 profiles of dream horses and took a fair bit of flack over not admitting they were dream horses. I have chatted with her a bit and she actually admitted that they are dream horses, she is in 4H and has posted a profile of the 4H horse, she just loves him and would like so much to be HOTD. If you have a minute please give her another shot at it. I think most of us can relate to being a horse crazy young girl...lol Talk soon, Love Donna Lee

Some good new on Mistit...her milk is now yellow, before it was just white coloring. Still keep her separated at night, just incase. Rainy again today, but not a all day rain, but enough to make everything sticky and humidity sort of bad. Try to chop down "cock-bur or burdock" this morning, and some are getting like little trees. Like to do them just before they seed out, it is like a small ball of sticky seeds which get in the horses manes and tails, and nearly impossible to get out.

So thankful for Sadie's shade. She is, too. I've got a small wall on the west side, about 6 feet wide. Going to wall up the north side when the the weather cools down. Don't know if Sadie uses the wall to block the blowing sand. She uses the shade when the sun is hot and when it rains. Plays in her water trough to cool down. The fly mask protects her eyes from flies and blowing dust and sand. She's use to the weather, no matter how crazy it gets. Leaving lots of love and a vote.

Hi Sterly, here's a vote for ya. 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! Love, Marion and the blondes.

Monsoon season. Large dust storm hit the Phoenix area, yesterday. Horrible winds were slamming into the house around noon, shaking it. Thanking Jesus for not losing power. Tucson was flooded from the heavy rains. I had to work a short shift, last night. Hard rain hit here before I got home, and flooded the highway below my house. And yes, it's miserably humid, now, but thankful for the rain. Also, thankful for Sadie's larger corral. The east end flooded, but the west was good. Sadie's good, too. Horses are rugged animals. They can survive so much worse. All she seemed to care about was food. I let her out, waded through puddles to the hay shed, and gave her a flake of hay. She had her carrots and apples, too. Her new salt brick melted. Need to buy 2 at a time, just in case. Love and a muggy vote. <3

Today the humidity is so bad, that we have fog and mositure on everything....like raining inside.
Well, Mistit's due date certainly is a mystery....she nearly is past the last due date, first week in Aug, next one will be near the end of Aug. It's been a long baby watch for all of us. I keep checking to see if she has milk, which she does
