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.

sing is 21 this year and she's eating her hay slowly and losing some weight. she gets a senior supplement with probiotics. I noticed her manure is soft at times, more like a cow patty, so I took a sample to the vet today to check for parasites. not sure if this is just part of getting older, a tooth problem, ulcers, or what. so many possibilities. she's always been a hard keeper, not motivated by food at all and will turn her nose up at it. also, Princeton was lame in his lesson last night at trot. today he looked like he was trotting on it good but I was behind him so it was hard to tell. his head wasn't bobbing anyway. I rode buttercup in the 40 degree wind. she is steady and calm so no problems. I am switching her over to western and looking at some western saddles. she's hard to fit due to her short round body. checking into some draft saddles and treeless.

Spring is just around the corner (I hope)
Second day of snow for us, although no accumulation. Next couple of days will be raw for us (you'd think them balmy), won't get above freezing tomorrow and not much better Sat. Then warming up, but lots of rain in the forecast. Just being a horsey caretaker these days, longing to ride again!

I don't envy your cold weather! It's supposed to snow here this weekend but I highly doubt it. We've hardly had a winter! We got some flooding earlier this month but that's it.

Hi Donna Lee
It's a little warmer here today with sunshine and you can smell spring in the air. The horses are all out and running and kicking up their heels and having a great time today. I have to work. This February has been quite wicked, temperature wise. I cann't remember it ever being this cold for this time of year. But as Canadians we SMILE, LAUGH, COMPLAIN and bear it...AY
I have started planing my show season and some trips to some horsey things. OOooohhh it's all the way up to 17F YAYYYY.
Take care stay warm and God bless...love Celeste

Trotting by with a vote!
What a weekend! I had an exciting time with Cimarron and his buddies. It's been nice and dry for the last several days, so I took Cimarron for a bareback ride, and he was great - calm, (mostly) listening to me, willing to work. It always makes me happy when he's a good boy like that.

Of course, when I took my bareback pad off of Cimarron and set it on the ground, Rango darted over and stole it. He then proceeded to destroy it by tearing it open and yanking bits of foam stuffing out of it, that jerk. Rango has a habit of doing things like that; one time, he even bit (and thereby scratched) my uncle's brand new Ram 3500 when it was parked in the field.

Best wishes!

♡ I made it to work. Bridges and over passes have ice but the freeway for the most part was ok. I still drove like a granny! By the time I get off work it is supposed to be 37 then drop back to the 20’s so I have one more day of driving in this mess. After work yesterday I went to feed the horses their evening dinner and I did stay out about 45 min. to hour but it was too cold to stay out any longer. Happy trails to you and here is a whinny and a click on your horseshoe with love =)

Cold and icy today - glad I didn't have to go anywhere. So much for best laid plans. When I went out to feed this AM (late when the horses finally came up) - their tub was full of ice. Seems the old deicer must have shorted out, and I didn't check to make sure the green light was on the GFI outlet. Scott pointed out the problem, and it is now happily heating away. Still had to carry out hot water, hate having to do that.

No worries Donna Lee, I don't get on the computer all that much either, it takes alot of time and sometimes I just want to do nothing !! Jack is improving steadily, he is foraging alot more which is what he needed to get his strength back, the weather here has been out of this world nice, it's kinda scary hhahahaa, yesterday we pushed open an old logging road at the bottom of the orchard, looking forward to checking it out today with Lilly, yesterday we scared out some deer so I'll have to be very observant as she may get a little jumpy being in an new area of the orchard. love Suz and lilly

Hi sterly!
Well, it's still below zero. The horses have been locked up for days and it's not looking like they'll be getting out for at least another day or two. I really hope warm weather gets here soon! Glad to here Charlie and sterly are doing ok:), sterly is one tough mare:)! My guys don't even look that fit, and there all under 8 :-) well, leaving a vote from the frozen north!

Hear you about the slump!
Tx is joining most of the rest of the country the next few days. 24 the next couple of nights, with sleet/ice accumulation of 1/2-1" expected. Fingers crossed that the power doesn't go out, filling up all available water containers just in case.

Spring must be coming closer, my chickens have started laying, I hope they are not laying frozen eggs. Which is what I am finding, but if I am there quick enough, they are still good. If frozen, I just boil them and feed them back to the hens.

it was sunny after work and less windy-wind from the north & east rather then the south. Filled water tubs, turned out the boys to graze and put their feed up that I got on the way home.

Hope you are getting some better weather. The winds finally stopped, but the snow started earlier then they said it would. Took my 79 yr cousin out to meet Jax then off for hot chocolate. Came home and had 4" of snow in an hour. Going to have a lot more then what they called for. O well home and safe that's all that counts. LOL shoveling in the morning. Vicki & Big Jax

Hoping Sterl is doing well. Yep, the winds were BAD yesterday. Thankfully, no shingles down, no branches down. Did have to chase down porch furniture and recover hay bales (several times). NOT looking forward to the next week or so!

the winds were horrible yesterday, 29 steady and gusts up to 35 & 40...I do not haul out with winds like that. I don't ride in winds like that either~lol. I mowed some high spots and fence lines, fixed a few cedar posts and mucked out the stalls. I did curry off mud while the horses were grazing. Have a wonderful weekend-mostly stay warm ♡
