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.

Nothing much doing today, damp, chilly and drizzly. Hoping to get Cisco and Meg dewormed tomorrow. Went into the feedstore in Grandview, he should be able to get Total Equine Essentials and will look into carrying timothy pellets. (Felt ribs on Meg today, that's a good thing) but don't want her any thinner.

♡ When I got Deacon he had previously pastured on Bill’s brothers property with 3 other horses. All 3 others horses were taken in to have sarcoid tumors removed. Deacon had a small knot on his left flank that I had Doc Edward’s check out. He said to leave it alone until it started to change or he could remove for cosmetic reasons if I wanted. I choose to wait. I don’t show my horses and I wasn’t interested giving Deacon Surgery after just newly purchasing him. It didn’t bother him either. Several years ago I did have it removed. It started to change. Doc had learned how to also prevent future ones as well. This method is to take a small piece of the tumor and put it in the neck area. You can’t even tell where the cut on his flank was now. In his knot he actually had 2 small tumors in it.
Equine Sarcoid:

Sarcoid tumors are the most common skin tumor in horses. These tumors are unique in that they are the product of infection with Bovine Papilloma Virus (BPV), which is probably transmitted by flies. Many horses can be infected with this virus, but no two horses will express it in the same way. Tumor appearance and size can vary greatly between horses, and even on the same horse; similarly, response to different treatments can be highly variable. Tumors can originate at the site of a wound or tack rub, and originally present as a wound that isn't healing; on the lower limbs, they also are often mistaken for proud flesh. Though sarcoids are the most common skin tumor of horses, they are also one of the most misunderstood maladies of horses.

Hi Donna Lee! Sorry it's been a few days since I was online. We've been having rain off and on again this week..Monday-Wednesday so I got Koot out to roll and hang out with him a bit before this storm came in. It was still pretty muddy after that big rain Thurs/Friday so I haven't been able to ride in a little :( I'm soo happy for the rain but it's been a bummer not getting Koot out much. How are you doing? Voted. XOXO Danya and Koot

☆ Deacon’s registered name is “One More Special”, he surely is one special horse to me. Deacon was born with what people call a “prophet’s thumb”. It is an indention on the right side of his neck. I’m told it is from him lying on his hoof while in his mother’s womb. We thank you for your support during this HOTM run =) Have a wonderful day! Whinnies & hugs =) P.S. hoping to pick up Whiskey today!

Here's a vote from Buddy! I know I haven't been on again in a few days, but I went and brought Buddy home! We went to get him on Tuesday, and ended up quite a few hours behind schedule.. 8 hours behind actually. The roads were good when we left, and terrible on our way back. We were lucky we left Amberlea when we did, otherwise we would have been camping out at a rest stop somewhere. The only terribly bad part was when we were about 100 KM away from our destination. We had a semi truck driver flag us down to let us know that the road was pure ice, no matter how slow you went you were sliding towards the ditch. We stopped at the bottom of the little hill to see if the trucks in the ditch were okay and we were sliding towards them so they were telling us to just keep going and then call 911 when we got to cell service.

In addition to the roads being crap, I lost my engagment ring somewhere along the way! :( But, Buddy is here, and I am happy for that. He seems to be settled in at the new place and liking it. He's in one of the little barns with one other horse, so I've decided to keep him on indoor board.

My Scentsy business has started off to a good start, I've just got to keep at it and find some more customers other then my sister, and myself! So if any of you, or someone you know are in Canada and would like to order I'd be happy to help! :D In other news, Rob goes for an interview on Tuesday in Calgary, so he's flying there. Which means I get to spend the day with my sister and niece and some friends until he flies back and I pick him up!

The weather here has been pretty mild and I think it's supposed to stay that way for the remainder of the month. I hope it's been nice for everyone else as well! I've added pictures of Buddy in his new place as well!

So glad Marion has been helping. She's a good person. Couple of mild thunderstorms this afternoon, then cleared out. Finished the fencing for the calves yesterday - so far they have stayed put. Rain is forecast all week. Who wants to ride, anyway? Would much rather wade thru the mud, LOL!

I'm hoping to talk to our Dr. C today, Charlie is OK as long as he is on the high dose of ulcer meds, I'm making small changes in his feed program, adding thing to help with is hind gut digestion and taking away grains which I have learned are very hard on their tummy's. Marion has been a huge support, when i feel like I'm loosing it, she picks me back up. I can't explain how this is a constant worry, I just want him well again. Marion also suggested that the stall kicking may be a symptom of the ulcers? could be...Love Donna Lee

(}—{) We ended up getting a light sprinkle Thursday evening. After I went to Tractor Supply & the grocery store Lizzy came over and we had a really nice ride on Rocket and Deacon. Whiskey is at the equine hospital staying a few days. He scratched his eye somehow. I really don’t know how or why he does that so much but the other 2 never do???? Any way Doc says he is doctoring it 2x’s a day with an antibiotic and giving banamine 1 time a day. Cliff may pick him up today or Monday. It is so hard putting meds in their eyes. I can do once its under control. I just can’t stand to touch his eye when it hurts so much. He took him in Thursday Morning so hopefully he can come home today. I miss him and so does Deacon and Rocket. Whinny’s, love, hugs and we left you a vote…..

☆ I have the same farrier for all these years and I have the same equine vet so my horses have really good care. I am very thankful that I can give my horses the best I can provide. Again Deacon started this journey for me and I have learned so much. I have learned how to pick hooves, clean sheaths, scoop poop, bath them from head to hoof, load, doctor eyes and cuts…and the list goes on! I have read and studied so much as well. The journey with the horses never ends and you can always learn more. I am off work tomorrow so I will phone vote as many as possible. There is a 20% chance of rain so I’m not sure if I will get to ride. I do have to run and pick up feed and stop by the grocery store, maybe a little final Christmas shopping. Have a great Thursday ~Whinny’s & hugs ♡

Thank you for the get well wishes. I never get sick, but when I do, blech. Lol. Hoping everyone who's under the weather, is feeling better, soon, too...... I did manager a short ride on Sadie, Wednesday. What an amazing feeling to be in the saddle! I forgot about being sick. A friend, who's an experienced rider, came out and rode her, too. I said professional rider, on facebook, because if you have a horse, everyone wants to bring their kids out to ride. Sadie needs work. Not risking accidents.... Stephanie rode Sadie out front. She was amazing. She trotted, cantered and was so good, until she got spooked. She was nervy, possibly coyotes. There's a large den nearby. She bucked hard, and Stephanie hit the ground. She said she was fine, got back on and rode her for a few minutes more. She said she and Sadie need to get to know one another. I'm thinking that's true. Sadie's good with me, but she loves me. She'd better. Lol. Leaving love and a vote.
