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.

Hi Sterly, here's a vote for ya honey. Oh No, not another farm shut down! I feel so sorry for ya. Hopefully the places that have been under quarantine are almost off of it and able to re-open and generate business again. Yep, that's how I just started turnout yesterday too with mine, 20 minutes and in you come. I usually increase by 5 minutes a day then. But today we didn't, very overcast and windy and I was so busy trying to get things done, I said hay time kids. But mine don't really mind staying in. Love, Marion and the blondes.

Rain, rain and more rain. Can't ride, can't mow, can't fix fences. On the bright side, plenty of hay this year if it doesn't get rained on.

ANOTHER FARM UNDER QUARANTINE...
This just gets worse by the day.. I have settled into doing a 4 day work week and using one week of vacation for the Fridays we are off. That is only going to work for 5 weeks, then I'm not sure what to do? Started the guys on 20 minutes of grass yesterday, they thought they were in heaven, the only trouble was catching them after 20 minutes to bring back to the dirt and dry old hay. Got a ride in too. Left a vote, Love Donna Lee

Hi Sterly, here's a vote for ya honey. Hope the weather warms up for you too! So like I took my good sewing machine a few years ago in for a tune up too! But the tune up cost all most as much as a new machine that had more functions to it! Go figure! Love, Marion and the blondes.

Sorry your days have been cut and you are getting snow. At the very least, should be good weather and you can get to ride! Bird Flu is hitting the US hard, so very sorry for all the producers who are having to euthanize their flocks.

A quick hello and to say things are happening around here-some good, some not so much. Horses are healthy and being stubborn! Bought a new trailer because Bub had that accident in the 3 horse slant and refusing it because he remembers but is also unsure of the straight load I bought. Dad in and out of hospital and being needy!Etc, etc, etc! Not gonna bore ya with details. I am having female problems though-am going to the dr next tuesday. Business venture is slowly coming along. Mrs. Prego (daughter) doing good! Baby shower May 2nd. I miss being on here but so darn busy! GRRR!! I hope everyone is doing good and wish everyone well. Thanks for not "kicking me to the curb" and forgetting me. Everyday I'd love to get on here. I haven't even had time to ride yet this year!! Hope to be on a regular basis soon. Take care and love to all!! Cindy, Bub, and Bee

Hi Sterly, here's a vote for ya honey. Well I hope that no matter what extra day off you get, weather a three day weekend, or one mid-week, it's sunny and nice and you can ride and work outside! At least then it'll all feel worth while not making the extra $$$. Love, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Sterly, here's a vote for ya honey. Oh No, now it's in the US too! I haven't heard anything on the news or read about it on the internet yet. Oh that's bad 4 days a week only of work. But no offense, it could be worse. And PS, I eat PBJ sandwiches a lot! Soup is good, and so's rice and beans! But my horses and dog have everything they need. Me, I don't care, I'll suck it up! You and I are so much a like! Love, Marion and the blondes.

Yep, the bird flu is going around. Feel so very sorry for the people that raise birds, it has to be so hard for them, and of course, along down the line.

Hi everyone, sorry I have not been on, as you all know Jack the goat had a relapse, today was going to be a difficult day, the vet is coming to the barn for everyone's wellness checks and shots, today I was gonna have to be judge and jury for Jack but I am happy to say he is back on his feet walking and foraging in a slow motion manner but that is okay,occasionally he stumbles and I have to go pick him up but strength will come with time, praise God he got a reprieve from the almighty Judge !! on the flip side, Lilly got a bath yesterday, so did I LOL, she gets her shots today and hopefully a clean bill of health, the gal that gave me a lesson on trailer loading said Lilly needs to see a chiropracter, she said it feels like there something off on the r
right side of her neck up by her poll, her daughter does this kind of work so I have a call into her to talk about it and schedule an appt. I am getting ready to take Lilly for a spin in the trailer this week yay, but here is a ? for Everyone, do you tie or not tie your horses in the trailer, the gal who gave me a lesson does not, alot of yes and no's on the internet, not sure what I am suppose to do, any suggestions ??? love you all, Lilly and Suzie

Got to ride Dash for 30 mins Friday and Saturday, he was sooo good! I didn't get to see him on my birthday (Sunday) because it rained all day, but I went to see him yesterday evening! He is such a big sweet heart! I brushed him for a long time. He's almost done shedding, his head neck and shoulders are a lovely honey color, but his belly and ears and a little patch on his face have yet to shed lol:) Reb is shedding but he HATES to be brushed!!! I brush him when he allows it, which isn't very often haha! I messed with him some yesterday as well, but I could tell he was getting bored so I turned him loose and he ran a huge circle bucking an jumping, it was so cute:)I will post pics soon y'all!

Hi Donna Lee, I'm glad to hear that everything is going well for you and it's starting to dry out a bit. I'll still take some of that rain you're getting if you need me too lol. I got some time in with Koot on Sunday and he had a great time, other than being a bit stressed that one of his horsey friends is no longer his stall buddy. Voted. XOXO Danya and Koot

HELLO (after a long time!) :-(
I'M SO SORRY! I haven't been able to get on, (we've been very busy) and I've been a little all over the place right now! I don't think its gonna work out to run for HOTM, even if this is the 20th of April. Thanks for voting though,I appreciate it so much!
Princess might have found a home, my parents are thinking it through:( BUT....we might have another horse on the way also! So happy...it's turning GORGEOUS here! So worth all the rotten weather that was going on in Feb. and Jan. And what better way to end those days than to ride?! They are almost shedded out, just have some jaw-line hair LOL.
Well, I gotta get going, I've been looking for a barrel-racing trainer or horse-trainer to work with or for, but it's so frustrating. I can't find any so far, they all live about 2 hours away! So tired of it. But maybe I'll find one soon...maybe:-/
Talk to ya later, really sorry about my absence!

Glad Charlie is doing well. Feels good to be able to get everything cleaned up. Looks so clean and new. We are still having high winds. Got to ride Sat. all of a sudden we had 45 mph winds. Jax did really well. He had more trouble with the limb on the ground then the wind itself. Our ground is still soft. We could only ride around the perimeter. Vicki & Big Jax

Only got 1 inch of rain last night. Sure sounded like more. Again, not enough to really help the rivers and lakes, but great for the grass, crops and of course, the mud. Thinking maybe I'll get to ride by my birthday in July.
