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.

☆ Sunday was so sunny and pretty, extremely windy out but nice. I did ride Deacon and was such a good boy. The tree lines helped block the wind for us. All 3 horses were soooo muddy after the rain Saturday…took a lot of time to de-mud them LOL Have a wonderful day! Whinnies & hugs =)

Hi Sterly, here's a vote for ya. Well very productive day today! Got the kids exercised and had to turn Bullseye out alone while we worked on Indy's stall. Steve came over about 1 pm and it took over 2 hours to almost finish the project. Bedding stall is insulated and done! The we measured and cut the hay stalls door, but because of the amount of old hay in front of it and blocking it, I'll move that tomorrow when I have a mask on and can open some windows, yes temps in the lower 50's on Sunday. Then I kicked Bullseye out and put Indy in his stall so we could tackle the big job. Indy's insulation is in and the plywood over top is on. Of course it only took him about 3 minutes to go over and rake his teeth on it. I have to get some chewstop and paint it. Sprayed some Bitter Apple on it for now. From moving just enough of the old hay, I've got a runny nose and cough, it was dusty and some mold on the bottom. But I never go near there, so disturbing it got my asthma and allergies going nuts. Will finish up tomorrow and for sure ride again! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

I'M FRUSTRATED, GRRR
I should have the blood work back today, as far as the nutritionist. She is reluctant to make a change in feed for and ulcer he "may" or "may not" have. She can't get her head around an impaction colic, to her that means lack of moisture, so #1 should be let's get him drinking more water...Charlie is a good drinker. She says the only way to know for sure if he has an ulcer is to scope, I said Dr. C is treating on clinical signs, he knows this horse. She said he has adequate fat and fibre with his present ration, keep up with the alfalfa hay and add corn or vegetable oil to his feed. Not much help there....we lft a vote, Love Donna Lee

CAN'T BELIEVE THIS WEATHER...
I'm off work today, our plant is having some major maintenance done,this works out for me except for the lack of $$$. Dr. Cook is coming to pull a blood on Charlie, hope it shows the inflammation is gone...the nutritionist is coming over after lunch to discuss his feed program. He has been on the maintenance dose of his ulcer meds since Monday and so far so good. Yesterday was so miserable they had to stay in again, I think they can get out for a bit today. Just because I don't talk about her, Sterly is doing great...She loves winter. We left a long weekend vote, Love Donna Lee

Here's a vote from Buddy! I'm happy to say I have found a place to board Buddy in Grande Cache! It's the trail riding place that I was told about. $325 for outdoor board and $425 for indoor. So I think I am going to try and see how he is on outdoor board again, and if he's a stinker and doesn't want me to catch him again I will be putting him back on indoor board. I'm moving him on December 1st as far as I know. We've rented a trailer for that day, so I'm hoping it all goes well as that's the same day we ourselves are moving. I'm hoping Buddy loads like a champ like he did when I brought him up here to be with me. I also hope that he allows me to put his shipping boots on again. We have rented a sea can from the "Pods" company, and had it delivered today. I'm getting excited to move!

Sunday I am doing an equine first aid course with one of the girls I work with. I'm looking forward to it. Not only will I learn lots, I'm also excited to learn how to wrap bandages properly. I already know the basics on how to wrap, but it never hurts to learn more! Buddy has been doing well. I still havent ridden him, but I've been spending lots of time with him just brushing him and picking up his feet and cleaning them. I bought myself a lunge line today finally so now I won't have to worry about borrowing one from someone when I want to lunge him.

The weather here has turned mild, it's been nice and warm and today it was actually about plus 6 out! It was a nice change from the cold, windy, snowy, Alberta weather. I hope everyone has been good and getting lots of horsey time in!

-Buddy & Jasmine

Come visit me, Buddy.

I'm a little bit upset right now. Pippin left today; a horse trader bought him. I'll probably never see the sweet little pony again. I will never forget the clever expression in his dark eyes, the way he whinnied when he saw me, the fuzzy softness of his coat, or the tricks that he was always so enthusiastic to perform for me. He was Cimarron's best little buddy.

Best wishes for all.
