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.

We did get the pond in, still have to move the cage over the top, but want to plant flowers and plants where the cage will go, but will have to steal violets, and day lilies from other areas because all I have in this area is Snow on the Mountain. Yes, we still have cold or cool weather mornings have been down to 28, but usually around 34. Spring will make it, I know, because my guinea hens have started laying.

Hoping to be able to pick up another corral panel, next week. Going to get one instead of 2. Waiting for a way to pick up the material to put a wall on Sadie's shade. Wish I had a truck instead of a car. Anxious to get it done. Leaving love and a vote.

Had lunch with a friend today, we use the same vet. They got to talking, and Dr. Trish said Cisco is a "miracle horse", she never thought he would heal that well, that quickly. She also texted me tonight, the Adequan is in, so will pick some up for Bo tomorrow. Rain tonight and tomorrow, Cisco is back in his stall.

Good Morning vote for you. It might still have ice on it, since temps are 29 earlier, but we have sun shine, so that is a good sign.

Very strong winds, Monday. I was okay with it, because it blew the flies away. Lol. Sadie's doing well, sassy as ever. Love to watch her run. So beautiful. Love the sound of her hooves as they hit the ground, too. Hugs and a quick vote.

More rain today, like 5th day in a row. The temps are cool too, so outside work is like the rain....hit and miss. Rest of the week should be cool without too much rain. Been planting tomatoes in paper cups, for the garden. I do have about 20 tomatoes plants up about 6-8 inches, but these were a different kind. As long as it is raining, we will go for feed today, if we can get the topper back on the truck.

Hi & a vote,
Saturday I brushed Rocky and shedding more... then I rode him on a short trail ride with my friend on Sunday. It was fun. And her dog and Blue (my dog) are best friends too and love to play. Rocky is 19 now, so just goes out on the trail or pop on after winter with no fuss. Right now he's going good and no lameness at all. But only ride usually once a week for a short ride with hoof boots on - those seem to work well for him.

Quick voting this morning before I do chores Can hear the birds singing outside, and little chicks starting to peep in the incubator. Going to start putting in the pond for the turtles today, needs electric for the filters so thinking next to the house or even in the day lillys over by the garage, even have the large cage to put over the top of everything, to keep them safe. Want to dig now while the ground is soft, since it has rained the last two days. Ponies seem to like to stay inside again, before they kept walking to the door like they wanted out, but that means more pen cleaning. Been trying to keep it clean, so all I had to do was put down lime, to kill anything in the soil, (it has dirt floor), then the sawdust, and straw, before Mistic has to use it for her baby. She other wise will be outside all day, and come in at night. So much for a quick vote, huh. :)

Glad the Buddy Guy concert went great for you. I know you waited a long time for it.
Since, most of you know, I sold Kisses to Stephanie last fall, and would like to make only two pages, one for Whisper and one for the little minis, first I will add Pickles, who came with Paisley from the rescue called Ryon's Rescue in Cannon Falls, Mn. I will try to get these done in the next few days....hopefully.

Long week...
Well our OT is still on and even tho I had a vacation day this week due to the Buddy Guy concert, I still felt like it was a long week. Did I mention how fabulous the concert was? Trev was very pleased with the guitar pic. I had a great ride on Charlie yesterday, Sterly is doing well. Have a great weekend, Love Donna Lee

The last two days, the morning temps have been chilly, hate to say cold, but compared to a week ago, they are COLD. Ice on the water tubs, and back to my winter jacket and gloves. Warms up enough for a hooded sweatshirt, and we nearly have the garden tilled, adding sawdust, and plus all the wheelbarrows of chicken coop sand, and the manure from the little pony pen, just need to work it in better, and put back up the fencing....which we took down to make the pig fence, since they were cattle and pig panels. Think about using the orange plastic type of fencing since it is just to keep the chickens out.

My horses are all doing great and in good health. They are spoiled rotten...but I love them. Thank you so much for asking Paula. I am going enjoy my horses today. Hope everyone has a great weekend.

OMG...
OMG he was amazing, what a great showman. He just loves what he does, he was fabulous. Got home about midnight, straight to bed, slept in til 4:45, just fed the horses. Just a hang out day. I got an autographed guitar pick, because we were in the front row at the end of the concert he was tossing them, I went up to the stage with like a zillion others, he handed ME one. So cool.It is for Trevor, he is a musician, plays guitar. Love Donna Lee
