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.

Our dog, Scruffy, was attacked, late Sunday night, by one of the neighbors' dog. Possibly a pit mix. Scruffy got chewed up pretty bad. He's wearing the 'lampshade', has staples and is sedated. Can't get him to eat, drink or take his medication. The vet said he's not walking because of, either the surgery or the sedative shot they gave him. He ate some grilled chicken before we left for the vet. Hoping his appetite is back Tuesday. He's got a long way to go to heal. He's so sociable. He goes over to the egg ranch and shares the employees' lunches. He probably likes to hang out with the prisoners that work there, too. He gets out by climbing the fence, literally. or jumping it. I can't handle chaining him. Too heartbreaking. For now, he's in the house, and hopefully, after he heals, too. Been afraid he'd get ran over. The dog has disappeared. I haven't seen him since he attacked Scruffy. So aggressive. I'm taking care of the bill. He was out which makes it my responsibility. Don't think the neighbor has any money, anyway. His single wide is set up in a way that breaks permit laws, including being a single wide. Going to hush and leave lots of love and a vote.

Hi, I haven't been by in a while. So glad you've had a great week off, sounds like a lot more would be wonderful. That's good you've been able to ride alot too. Love the new profile pics of your kids.
We've been fine, the weather hot and dry, then cool and rainy. A little of almost everything. It's been an extra windy spring. The horses are doing pretty well. BJ came up for supper last night slightly favoring a hind leg, and he's still sore on it. Can't see anything obvious or any heat or swelling, will keep an eye on him. Poor horse is always on the injured/sick list.
Well, hope your week is off to a good start. Take care.

last day of vacation...
It has been a swell time off, lots of rides, lots of reading lots of relaxing....I have a week off in June as well. I posted a new pic of my "old lady" and one of Charlie in his "oh so sheik spring, summer fly combat" ensemble....never met a horse that hates flies as much as Charlie, maybe when I'm home full time, I'll get him a fly sheet, I can't ask David to watch him all day, and I am nervous of sheet on in turnout...Love Donna Lee

Hi Sterly, here's a vote for ya honey. Glad to hear from and read your blog. Yep I agree, either haven't been on in a dog's age, or a fake profile from someone new! I'd write to my friend at I5, but I don't want to stir up trouble and maybe lose HC all together! I downloaded an ad blocker! It's great! Cruise right through with voting and blogging.

I agree with you about being slow. I really think it is all the ads which pop up. I send out over 50 votes, and sometime get so many err messages, that some do not get their comments. I hope that it does not happen to the same horse each time.

Woo Hoo...
Long weekend in Canada, just 'cause I don't leave a message everyday, we are still around, we check in every morning before work and see who is HOTD, mostly that bugs me, because someone that has not been active for like 580 days should not be HOTD. Anyway, HC is soooo slow and it is painful to try to blog to everyone, please know that I like to catch up on the news. Charlie and Sterly are both doing well, we have had some nice weather, so some nice rides, so looking forward to September 9th. last day of work. I will likely take a part time job, I have been offered one looking after a turkey brooder barn, I have not committed yet, but I'm leaning toward yes. Have a great weekend, Love to all, Donna Lee

Austin and I had a wonderful time, in Tucson, visiting with (Rick's) family and enjoyed his niece's graduation. Rick has issues, but his family is sweet and loving. Planning to go back down, after the summer heat goes away, and going to Tombstone with them. So looking forward to it. Hope you're all doing well. Love and a vote.

Poor Mistic her belly is getting bigger and lower. Hopeful she is listening when I read her "Blessed are the Broodmares" I think my reading puts her to sleep. Well, have to think of a good name for the new goat, he is about a year old, blackish in color, no horns, and better like weeds. If pulling, chopping, spraying, mowing does not work, I will try a goat, he will be the fattest goat by the end of summer. Mike was not too happy about him coming...I think today. Wait until he finds out I am getting a guinea pig. Our Homer died last year, at the age of 8 nearly 10. Best part he comes with his own house, so in the winter he can be up stairs with me. Mike gets alot of surprises.....:)

Sadie was a good girl, Thursday. She did give the farrier some attitude. He rubbed her neck and said she's a spoiled brat. She is. She took her shot without a problem and didn't fight the deworming. She's wearing her new fly mask, too. She and Austin played chase. She had that tail curled. Lol. So funny. Have a great weekend. I have extra hours this weekend, too. Will be on to vote, as much as possible. Love and a vote.

Hello!
Thank-you for HOTD! I was so surprised when I got on HC!
My brothers and I enjoyed a lovely bare back ride last evening. We rode around our hayfield and through the woods. The girls were both so good. We all had a wonderful time!

Still working on the outdoor stove, it is working, "but" now the water is not coming around threw out the house. We have hot water heat, and someplace in a pipe there must be a airlock. Here I thought our house would be warm tonight, but maybe not. Weather is miserable outside. Still rainy and cold. Moved one batch of chicks to the calf hutch, moved the bigger ones to the little room in the chicken coop, so soon they will be going outside. Making room in the back of the shed so ponies can have a pen on that side, has large siding door, and then their pen Mistic will get because it has a large pen outside under the lento where when she foals, I can put them to keep them safe. May 23 is due date.

A "late" Happy Mother's Day to you, even if you are only the mother of 4 legged ones.
Busy weekend....hatched out 42 out of 48 eggs, for me that is great. Sold 8 guinea hens on Saturday and 15 chicks, but out poor outdoor stove is taking all that money to fit it. Now the best new, Pickles finally progress to a point that he can have his halter OFF. Does not run away, and no long afraid of hand movements....sometimes, he moves his head, but not his feet. Been following me around, like I am his best friend. Negative side of no halter, is....I can not tell Pickles and Clippers apart(from just their heads), without looking at their feet. :)

Hi Sterly, here's a vote for ya. Happy Mother's Day to all, whether it be 2 legged or the best kind 4 legged! Well it was raining at am feeding, cleared out by 9 am with winds like OMG, but the sun came out! Didn't remember what that orange thing in the sky was! LOL! So it was a lot of fun trying to lunge them, even in the indoor. Large doors were snugged as tight as I could get them and they were still making noise. So Paige got a few good crow hops and bucks in, but she's doing well. Indy I kept on the lunge line and even he wasn't happy about the winds! And when Indy acts up, you know it's bad! Bullseye went out this afternoon in the baby pasture, the others stayed in with hay for late lunch. Didn't need either of them running and slipping on the wet grass and muddy pastures. Did manage to mow the entire lawn! YAY! Now to start working on mowing pastures and the weeds in places are 10 inches high! In two weeks, they grow rather well! Love, Marion and the blondes.

Hubby was gone yesterday, drove with a friend to the VA in Minneapolis, so I never had even 1 dirty dish to wash until he got home. Got so much work done. Emptied, (again 3rd time) rain water out of the sunk in bath tub, that is used for the summer fish pond, used water to give to all the newly planted trees, so some of the water carrying was a bit of a hike. After filling the horse tanks, pulled the hose over to the fish pond and filled it, of course first had to clean it, because of all the leaves and sticks that fall in. Went and caught all 7 little gold fish, by hand, and put them in. I try to make it as natural as possible. With rocks and later plants....the rocks are so "if" some little animal falls in, at least it can climb out on the rocks. Put turtles back in the pen, and added more rocks so it is easier for them to crawl out, that plastic does not give them any traction. Dragged the hose over and made muddle puddles for the pigs, then watered all the tomatoes plants, all 22 of them. Still have more to put out, but they are still to small. I carry them outside to set in the sun, and then back in for the night. Baby chicks got to go out in the sunshine in the outdoor pen, but sure were hard to round up to go back inside at 6, All the tomatoe plants, have to be uncovered in the morning, then recovered when it started getting hot, yep, it really got hot yesterday, up to 83 at one time. We go from 30 to 89+ in one day. Winter jacket to T-shirt. Cleaned out white guinea pen, brushed ponies, worked on picking up Pickles feet....he was very naughty when farrier was here...picked up his feet and his whole bod went with. But Clippers did the same thing, and his feet were picked up hundreds of time. Moved saddles to the shop so I could clean them later, took the huge plastic that covered them, out into the ponies pen, and used feed tanks and rocks,to hold down corners and then put its of feed on the plastic so the ponies could learn to walk on the plastic. Sure enough, girls are braver than boys. Paisley, and Mistic just walked right out, Pickles and Clippers had to check it out somewhat, before they went for treats. I brought the two huge balls out for them to play with, they like to follow them as they roll. Pickles and Paisley had them in their pen all winter. Later when it was dark, I went to lock chickens in, and all 3 of the younger ponies were laying down, so I sat between them, and rubbed them. Pickles just laid out flat and I got to rub his tummy, first time he did that. Usually he wants to get up, but tonight he felt comfortable just laying there. Did I clean house, well I did wash one load of clothes and hung them outside. That counts, somewhat, for housework, right!!
