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.

It's been crazy around here. I try to get horsey time in as much as possible except for today-winter's back! It's cold, windy, and having some snow showers today! Besides the weather, last year our huge garden tub pipes had been leaking underneath into the pipe opening for who knows how long before I discovered it. It was going on 3am and my neighbour was just getting home from work so I called him over. I couldn't find the shut-off valve and refuse to go into the crawl space! He looked for me and said there isn't one. So I left it. My husband got home about 8am was mad that I didn't shut off the main water to the whole house (duh) and went about fixing it.
As time went on we noticed the floor sagging in the bathroom and the laundry room next to it. Just this past w-end we tore into it to discover heavy mold! The floor must go. Tub too. Out in pieces it came, (it was put in and the walls built around it), which boogered the walls. So we tore out the stand-up shower too, and will give the bathroom a make-over! I will have a nice closet built and a huge stand-up shower (bye bye baths).
What makes it really crazy is we all are using one bathroom (have two teenage girls) and my oldest daughter will be coming for a visit soon too! Anyone have an out house for sale? ;)

glad Sterly is ok. Will post on HC after our hotm run with whiskey's progress. I have everything planned out already, I may try to squeeze it in here not sure yet!
Finally that Saturday morning rolled around. I could hardly sleep the night before. Everything was running threw my head about what I was going need and about if I had everything ready for his arrival to our place. I kept thinking about how alpha Deacon was and how they would get along. After all they have road a thousand miles of trails together. . The more I thought, the more I felt like after the ride we would come on home instead of camping. I wanted to get him home and on our property to make this dream come true for me. I had never rode Whiskey until the day I bought him, can you believe that!!! It did not matter to me how he rode at all, I wanted him and that was that! We had a nice ride that day and came on home. Cliff broke out his tools and started working around the barn. Today’s picture is of Whiskey’s first comedy show for us. He said (ha ha) “Dad, I can bring this orange Home Depot bucket to ya, I know it has feed in it for me!” Enjoy! Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

Here's a vote from Buddy! Sorry I did not get on last night like I had planned. My sister called to see if I wanted to come and visit her and baby Brylee again so I went to see them, I know you guys will understand!

Today was a nice day outside, it was about plus 11 out! And of course today was the one day that I wasn't working in the "barn" as us girls call it. The boss has started this new schedule sort of thing where some days the "circled" person's name will be doing other work or odd jobs around the barn instead of the normal day to day cleaning the stalls and that sort of stuff. Today my name was circled so I got to come in to work at 8 AM instead of 630 and I re-varnished the whole indoor arena! It looks so much better and from what I've heard it's been about 10 years since it was last done! Tomorrow the top and bottom strips get painted brown and I may post a picture of how it looks when it's all done!

Buddy & I may go for a ride tomorrow if it's supposed to be nice, but I've heard it's supposed to snow in the morning, so we will see what happens. And finally after waiting all weekend I got to get a look in the barns new little "tack shop" and I bought myself a jacket with the barn logo on it! I've seen a few people wearing them lately and I had to have one for myself! :) I hope everyone had a good weekend and has a great week!

Hi Donna Lee!!! Left a vote :)
won't be blogging again until the 22nd! Digit is going in for surgery this week. It's a 3hr trip one way and he will be there for 3 days then I will still be with him in Canon City for the 2 days that follow that. Work is off the hook and getting prepared for Digit's surgery is stressing me out!! So I will be thinking of all my HC friends and will be back next week!!

We left off Friday about the phone call to buy Whiskey! The arrangement was made for us to meet that weekend and Whiskey would be mine. The next few days were like a life time to me. I had put in a vacation day for that Friday because I knew I couldn’t concentrate and I wanted to get everything ready for the trail ride …I mainly wanted to get everything ready for his new home with us. Cliff was putting in our stalls at the time. I came home the day Karla called and talked with Cliff of course. Like I said he wasn’t working but he was working at our place (love cheap labor) lol. That next day after work I came home and he had added the 3rd stall, I started to cry of course because I knew he understood how badly I wanted Whiskey. Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

Hi Donna Lee
Its Monday and nearly 70F here.I haven't been on over this weekend, too much to do. I know its not horse related but did you catch the last episode of Midsummer Murders? I lost power when I was watching it and didn't find out if Mrs.Barnaby gave birth or whom the murderer was.Didn't get power back on until late Sunday. My place is impossible to ride on or even lunge a horse. Its just greasy mud and water everywhere and we had 2 days of rain and its do to snow tomorrow.
Take care & God bless...love Celeste

Hi Donna Lee & Sterl May, The horse chiro came out to see Koot and my friend's horse on Friday and I guess Koot was out in MANY places. He also said Koot needs to be stretched out before riding and his right ligament is swollen so it has to be hosed down after every ride. I haven't had a chiro check Koot in about two years so I'm kinda surprised he was so out everywhere. My poor boy! I was able to see Koot on Saturday and just took him out to run and roll and he had a great time and got carrots for a treat. Voted. XOXO Danya and Koot

Have a GREAT weekend !
Today’s picture is the picture Karla was going to post on craigslist & the first picture I ever had of Whiskey of my own until he became mine. When I speak of Whiskey my heart totally melts. I can get side tracked easily talking about him…so needless to say, we rode many times and camped a many a night. SO nearly 6 or 7 months later I received a call at work and it was Karla. My heart sunk, I knew she was going to say Whiskey was for sale. At that time Cliff was out of work (construction-you probably know how that goes) I was scared to ask how much they were asking. She told me what they were going to post him for on craigslist and I knew I could not afford that price. I told Karla I could not pay that price but to wait and not post until I could try a few options. She said right then that “sense you are a friend and we know how much you want and love him here is what we will sale him to you for”!!! It was like-woohoooooo! It was a price I could actually afford (not really but hey). I will get as many phone votes in over the weekend as I possibly can, mainly Sunday but will try to get some on Saturday; I will catch you up on Monday! Riding at Lake Whitney Saturday& will meet Cheryl and Cisco!!

thank you Donna Lee & herd!!!!!
As we ate lunch and rested, Whiskey walked over to me several times. He would nuzzle my hand (at the time I didn’t know he was a treat hound) and I felt as if we bonded and we were linked in some way. I told Karla right then and there that if they ever sold Whiskey to please contact me first. He has marbling on his lower legs that are silver, chocolate and nearly liver color (see his profile picture for today). It amazes me to still look at how he is marked; he is just absolutely beautiful-but I’m parcel!!! He is our escape artist, the one that can get into or out of ANYTHING; such a smarty pants and a treat hound lol. Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

Whiskey says Thank You for your support!
Monday we left off about Whiskey’s color and me with 5 hundred questions for Karla! Here we go…That poor girl had never met me before and I could not shut up :) I then walked over and looked Whiskey right in the eye and he looked back into mine and my heart sunk. His beauty was striking and the color was outstanding. He had a smart, sharpness about him-I’m sure he was thinking “what in the world is she doing”. The ride finally got underway; usually everyone has me ride out front and calls me the trail boss! Deacon is a faster walking horse but can ride in the middle or behind after the first hour or so. Well, here comes Rio & Whiskey with their smooth selves!!! They just gaited their smooth self’s right past me & Deacy. I watched Whiskey and noticed he didn’t quite move the same as Rio but still a difference from a QH. 2 hours into the ride we decided to rest a few minutes in a place we call “Carol’s lounge”. We have names for all our spots we ride to rest or to take a break out there because it’s so big. Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

Hoping you and your family are well!
Many changes. It's been a rough and crazy couple of weeks. Jack is settled in with his new mama and my friend Lynne. She loves him as I knew she would. Tonka is in the pasture and available for adoption which I try to remain in the land of denial about. Digit is doing great at our new facility. It's very fancy. I will try to remember pictures or video. I promise to cheer up once the dust settles!
