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.

Sorry we have been absent...
Good Morning my friends, all I can say is there is not enough hours in the day... Sterly and Charlie had their vaccinations last Monday when I was off work, and you guessed it, Charlie had a reaction. Even tho we always premedicate him he still had a mild colic, I don't care, colic is colic mild or not. He is OK now, he bounced back pretty quickly, I think 'cause I was home to watch out for him, love that guy, even with his issues. Have a great day, Love Donna Lee

Bo seems to be enjoying her new feed, luckily Jazz HATES it. (She actually was pawing at her feed bucket this morning, wanting her Purina). Bo's already had 6 scoops today, with very little feed being dropped (it turns to mush as soon as it gets in the mouth, no real chewing involved). Read the directions, then called Thrive to make sure I was understanding the directions right - they confirmed to feed it free choice at first. It's a bit scary, I've never fed anything but hay free choice, and only when it's really cold out. May hold off a few days on turning them out together, give her a chance to build up a bit. I'm hoping Cisco and Nugget will hate the Thrive, too, it's pretty expensive.

Come visit me, Mystic, Cisco ~ Congrats Queen Susie, Aug HOTM!, RIP, Angel Meg, Bo and Jazz & Nugget.

A storm came through, Thursday. We had some wind and only a little rain. Cities, to the east of us, got flooded and 9,000 people lost power. Lightning struck a palm tree and caused a fire. There were dust storms, too. Thankful we were spared. Love always and a vote.

Not much riding time this week, seems like I am alway fixing or building pens and pastures. Traded two male guinea hens, for feed yesterday, hopefully, we both felt good about the trade. I try to trade when ever I can, because if I sell chicks, or keets, I use the money to buy more grain.....usually horses, eat oats, or cracked corn, is what chickens get too. They are free roaming, only locked up in the coops at night, for their own protection.

Good morning everyone!
Thanks everyone for another surprise HOTD. Yes a lot of those horses used to be barrel racers and it surprised me also. They are very well trained. I can't wait to work with them and the riders more.

Well, here we are almost September. My HOTM run with cinnamon will be over soon. Hard to tell if she will get horse of the month. I don't think she quite got 300 or more votes yet. There are still a few more days though. Please keep voting and we hope everyone has a great day.

Come visit me, Therapeutic Riding Horses, DreamHorse, Cinnamon Please vote me (270037) for Sept. HOTM! & Eli (May 7th is my birthday!).

Well, it's been a busy month, especially the last two weeks, I'm making a new little area for Lilly to hang out in right off the barnyard, a gate will allow access to it from her barnyard, then in the winter months I can close it off so she and the goat boys dont destroy it, it has alot of tree's around it so it will be great for protection from the hot summer sun, plus I've been doing art projects and home repairs and getting ready to take some stuff to my dads yard sale this Saturday oh and then we have a family weekend reunion the following week end, and I still need to have the sons and I cut up the winter wood !! been doing alot of walking and riding with Lilly and the goat boys follow, we might get rain this weekend ??? sure hope so Oregon and Washington are burning up, love Suz and Lilly

Thanks! Much milder today, actually got some stuff done outside and didn't feel like needing a shower everytime I came in. New girls are out of heat, so will do some moving around in the AM before feeding so they can get acquainted over a common fence.

Everybody but Cisco is in heat. Yippee. Will just have to wait a bit longer. Horribly hot and humid today, mostly no breeze and a feels like of 105, so got very little done outside.

Hi, new girls are settling in, both are so sweet. Had to remove them from the common fence yesterday, they were both in full heat and Cisco was willing to oblige, but didn't like him trying to come over the fence and them backing up and kicking at Nugget. Will try again Tues, I think they will be out of heat by then.

Jazz & Bo arrived yesterday from the rescue...
Oh, does Cisco love Jazz & Bo. Both mares were in full heat this AM, displaying to Cisco, and he tried to come over the fence twice. He's not proud cut, but is willing to oblige. Got them up (took about 10 minutes to catch them), got fly stuff on, brushed them and fussed over them a bit, then put the calves in the center pen and the 2 mares in the far pen so they won't be on a common fence. They should be out of heat by Tuesday, will try again then.

I had a nice off day. It didn't turn out like I wanted it too but it was nice. The boys had their hooves trimmed and of course Deacon had new shoes put on. We had 2 1/2" of rain Thursday afternoon and it rained for about 30 minutes yesterday afternoon so my grass is happy again and the horses will have some fresh grass to graze ♡

Galloping by with some votes! I have been making homemade applesauce and apple crisp with all the apples are trees have given us this year (the ones that fall on the ground go to Katie and her buddies though). And of course the week I need to can the applesauce it's almost 100 degrees out! Can't seem to get any cool weather to stick around. Half my state is on fire it seems! Hopefully soon fall will bring some cooler weather.

Come visit me, Katie.

Thank you so much for stopping by with congratulations for Eddie's and Prince's wins for hotd. That was such a nice surprise! Especially since I haven't been on in awhile. I know some of you are wondering where I've been.

I'm sorry I disappeared but I've been so busy with school. Yes, I'm back in school. I'm doing online college and I'm studying to be a Vet Tech. It's so much fun but lots and lots of work. I don't have a minute for myself and I also work full time. It's been pretty crazy. I've never taken time off HC since it first started but I just couldn't keep up.

I got a 2 week break between summer and autumn classes but during break I'm super busy catching up on work, plus we're remodelling. I just got invited to participate in their Honors Program which is wonderful but it means even more work so I'm not going to be spending much time on here. I'll try to get back to hotd congrats and votes though.

Thanks for sticking by me! I love my HC friends! Leaving a vote for you and kisses from my boys.

Come visit me, Prince, Pippin (Remembering Melian) & Eddie.

How are you? So happy to be home. Been busy trying to get everything caught up. Jax made me feel so good. I went out to see him as they were coming in for the night. I called and whistled to him. His ears went up. Called again and he came trotting up to me. He kept nuzzling me. Made me so so happy. Rode for just a bit.
Thank you so much for votes while I was away. I truly appreciate it. Vicki & Big Jax
PS my friend who has been training him. Put a lot of muscle on him. I will take his picture. Looks great, I am so happy!

I am planning on leaving out to ride at the lake at 6:30 am tomorrow morning. I'm so excited, it has been 3 months sense I have rode there. I believe it was the 2nd week of May was the last time due to the flooding we had back then :) It is supposed to stay under 100 and that’s a blessing right now for us, have a wonderful weekend everybody and every horse <)__~
