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
Charlie sadly passed on Dec3/2016, due to colic, Blossom arrived on Dec7/2016, hopefully to become Sterly's new best friend.

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. What a mixed up weather day today. Super heavy rains all morning, about 1.5 inches worth! Then by noon time the sky's blue and sunshine! But it was slick mud on top of frozen ground, and I wasn't going to try and walk them down the side of the barn to the indoor! So Paige got her tail washed in a bucket of water, she's so good, I was resting the bucket against her hocks, she didn't care! Indy got a grooming. The they got lunch of hay and fresh water. So since it was like 55 degrees and sunny, Honey and I went for a little over a mile walk. Of course when we were about the last 1000 feet home, they sky started to turn black and the winds picked up! Yep sure enough more heavy rains and wind for the next few hours! Going down to about 28 tonight, should be an ice skating rink tomorrow morning! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Well misty, drizzle and just a nasty dreary day out there! And it didn't get all that warm, so the ice is still there and it's like walking on a land mine field, you never know where it's gonna take ya out! So needless to say horses didn't get to the indoor, I might have been able too, but didn't want to chance me going down and winding up under one of them! But I did forge through and take Honey for a walk down the road, just ugly out, but we did it! We both needed the exercise! Working on dropping that Holiday weight! LOL! Now tomorrow it's rain for sure all day long, but they say we could get to the high 40's before starting the plunge again! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Well we got up to 46 degrees with sunshine till about 2 pm. So it melted off more of this white stuff! But now it's muddy on top of frozen ground, so interesting to walk on for sure! Slip sliding away! Took another wheel barrel of 3 bales down to the barn, so we're okay with the rain moving in for Mon and Tues. Actually was able to lunge them naked today for the first time in a while! Paige and Indy got lunged inside. Bullseye got turned out in the front pasture in hopes of rolling in the snow! NOPE! Then gave them fresh water and hay for lunch. Honey and I did a walk again, almost a mile. Then it was the first football game of the two. Oh well, Jags lost to Pats! DAMN! Hoping that the Eagles win the night time game. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Well busy day again today! Took two loads of hay to the barn, only can fit 3 bales on the wheel barrel at once. Then Erin came over to pick up the newspapers for the clinic and of course played with Honey. After that I went to the barn and at first let Paige lose to run and play! Nope, went and stood by the mirror looking at herself! So had to lunge her, then did a few minutes of showmanship backing and spins. Next was Indy, he got lunged today and then we practiced setting up for halter, he remembered! Then Bullseye went out in the front pasture, I was hoping he'd roll in the snow and clean himself off, but no! Gave them lunch of hay and fresh water. Honey and I then did a mile walk, road sides were wet with salt, so we walked in the middle and moved when cars came. Thank goodness it was a quiet day on the traffic! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

HI Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Well started out at 08 degrees and made it up to 36 up here on the mountain top! Sun didn't come out till about 2:30 pm, but then it warmed up some of the ice and I chopped it out of the driveway and by the barn! Ran a lot of errands this morning. Even took Beast to the coin truck wash and got all the road salts off her! Picked up grain for Indy, Alfalfa pellets for Paige and lot's of dog food for Honey! Got Paige lunged and did 5 minutes of showmanship. Then free lunged Indy and Bullseye. Gave them fresh water and hay for lunch and finally at 2:45 got to have my lunch. Then Honey wanted out, so we went and she ran and ran in the snow! She's such a little nut case in the fresh soft snow! Love that pup! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Well started out at 04 and made the high of 26 or so. But the sun was strong and felt great! A little wind, but not all that bad! I actually was sweating out there working the snow blower. Yep, that lovely high wind yesterday filled in all my hard labor moving that 7 inches of fluffy snow! So today it was snow blow all over again and then man the tractor and finish up the driveway. Got the Beast moved and all cleaned off too and shoveled out the bed. Horse got some time in the indoor, and then lunch of hay and fresh water. Honey played in the cleared paths running like a nut case! She hit the deep stuff a few times and was like, oh no, out of here! I was beat by then, had some lunch and a nice long nap! Love my naps! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Well for snowing for over 29 hours, thank goodness it was the light stuff and not coming down hard and fast! So our total was 7 inches! It stopped by noontime and of course the winds picked up then too! So the 24 F felt like 14 F and now the drifts are building up! Worked the snow blower first and got all down by the barn and indoor done, oops forgot to do a path past the gate to the manure pile! Oh well, that's what Thursday is for! LOL! Then maned the tractor and got 3/4 of the driveway done. Called it quits then, was frozen and cold! Got Honey and we went out to the barn and gave the kids lunch of hay and fresh water. Honey has a 15 X 25 puppy park in the back yard for potty time! Going down to the single digits tonight, oh joy! Might have to run the heat so those wall fins don't freeze up since the wind is blowing from that direction! Hope this stops soon and spring comes early! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Well let it snow, let it snow, let it snow! But lucky so far, since it started at 7 am this morning, and it's almost 12 hours, we've only got 2 inches so far! But they say the heavy snowfall will come overnight! New prediction is now 5 to 7 inches! Got the kids to the indoor and lunged Paige and did showmanship, then lunged Indy, and free lunged Bullseye. Got the wood burner going a few days now, feels great and I love the idea that I'm not using a ton of oil! Mo's up here in the house with us right now, but he's going back to the barn when I do pm feeding in a short while. He ran out when I went out with one of the kids and took off. Finally came back, but I was in the house and not going back out, so up the stairs he came and in the house! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Well it was a productive running around errand day today! Started out at 09 degrees and got up to about 24 degrees. Sun was in and out, then out for the rest of the day! Went to town and got the newspapers for the doggie retreat and picked up a bunch of sale items at that store. Home and did a few things inside, like laundry, much needed! Then gave the kids lunch of fresh warm water and hay. Off to the chiropractor for my usual adjustment, much needed of course! Then Wally World for the really big grocery shopping! And it was a big one, hadn't shopped in three weeks due to the weather! All set now for a couple of weeks at least! Next it Tractor Supple and the Feed store for more of the kids food. Honey says I need my grain to mom! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Well only 08 this morning and a high of 18 F this afternoon. But the sun was out nice and strong, so made it feel a tad bit warmer. Indoor was at 30 degrees, so it was work time for the kids! Paige got lunged and a showmanship workout. Indy got lunged. Bullseye got to run free. Then it was lunch of fresh warm water and hay for them. Then football for me! All I can say is, so far with the 4 games this weekend, only one of my favorites has won. Last game is on now and the Saints are taking a beating! Oh well! Glad I don't bet money on these things! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

H Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Well it was an interesting day for sure! Went from a high of 62 yesterday to waking up to 26 this morning with a skip of ice and sleet/snow combo out there. But the winds were horrible, steady at 18 mph with gusts to almost 40 they were saying, and it sure felt like it! Temps dropped more throughout the day too! So it was not an indoor arena day at all. I didn't want to chance walking them out the door and have one freak out and slip on the now ice covered mud! So lunch time fresh water and hay, and they were very happy. My hay man came with another delivery of 50 bales. Probably need another 100 in the hay barn to make it till second cut Timothy in June. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Well we got rain rain and more rain! Like almost 2 inches so far, and with the melting snow, it's a flooding mess out there! Not fun at all! Needless to say, the kids did not get to the indoor today! Instead it was a complete spa day for them. Complete with shaving of the muzzles, bridle paths and fetlocks! They enjoyed it! Then lunch of hay and fresh water. Temps are still at 60 degrees, but by morning will be down to the low 30's! And the rain will turn to ice and sleet! Oh joy for sure! Got the YakTrax on my other boots all ready to go! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Just to let ya know, I heard from Cheryl and Cisco and they are out of gigs on the internet, so she'll be back when it rolls over again. Well we got warmer today, high of 46, but with no sun it didn't feel that warm! But I got a lot done outside. 3 more bales of hay to the horse barn. Big tractor down and moved the manure pile back and then got into the indoor and dragged it really good. Horses all enjoyed their play time in the nice soft sand. Indy must have rolled half a dozen times! He loves to roll. Then later on, met up with someone who brought my winter riding On Course heavy English pants from back when. Another item sold that no longer fit me! Cash is good! LOL! Now for tomorrow and the heavy rains! YUK! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Well it made it up to about 38 today. Sun this morning and then about 2 pm the clouds moved on in! So not much melting happening then. But at least it beat having it at 15 degrees or less. Took more hay to the barn and then Lunged Paige and then Indy. Bullseye got turned out in the one pasture, do you think he'd roll and clean himself up a little? Heck no! Dirty little donkey! Brought him in and gave everyone fresh water and hay for lunch. Then I came up and had my Chicken Noodle Veggie soup that I made. Was it good, and best thing is, it's kinda really low calorie too! Need to shed that holiday binge eating! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

H Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Well we started out in the low 20's and did get up to a whopping 38 degrees up here on the mountain, they said downtown got to 41! I had the truck appointment and made out great! They finally got the new dealership owners into the Ford Owner Advantage program that Magerano had. So I got credit for my last servicing and have about $10 on hand, plus have earned my free oil change! It's like buy 5 and the 6th is free. Yay next one if free, that's like over a $100 savings. Plus they gave me my senior 10% discount again on everything. Got home and Honey and I went and played in the back yard and then the indoor. She ran like crazy! Then Paige got lunged, Indy got to free play and so did Bullseye. After that they got lunch of hay and fresh water. I came up and had my lunch finally at 2:30 and then relaxed the rest of the day! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Well warmer today, high was like 26 I believe, but nasty damp raw out there! We did get a little sleet, snow mix this afternoon. Don't know how icy it is yet, as I still have to do pm feeding of the horses! But did get to town and got the papers for the rescue retreat and then did some grocery shopping for everything needed to make some homemade chicken noodle soup! Crock pot style of course! Didn't get them to indoor, like I said it was nasty raw out there and bone chilling! So did lunch of hay and warm water about 1:30 pm. And that's just when it started to sleet! So Honey and I hit the house after that and just relaxed! Tomorrow morn, Tuesday have an appointment for Beast to go and get the fuel filter and water separator changed in the diesel and new windshield wiper blades. That'll take up the morning. Hopefully then the sun will be out and it'll be mid 30's and I can work them out in the indoor then. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. WOW started out at -04 with chill factor of -14! But mother sun was out and it warmed up to 15 F degrees and the wind died out! So I was out there on the tractor and cleared the rest of the drifts from the driveway and made my wall! Then I got Paige and Indy lunged in the indoor, it was 30 in there, nice actually! Bullseye got to free play in there. Then fresh warm water and hay for the kids. Honey was out a few times and ran the back yard where there aren't any drifts. And yes, Mo came up to the house last night! I actually carried him up from the barn when I finished chores. He spent some time with us and then I moved him to downstairs again. He has a little box down there and water. Although this morning he was drinking and picking at Honey's food in the kitchen again. She just looks at him and don't chase him at all, even when he eats her food. She's made such a huge turnaround in the last 15 months! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Well started out really cold and stayed that way all day! Winds were bad too! High got to a mere 9 degrees! Went to Home Depot and picked up the new heavy duty drinking hose for the barn, but will wait till after tomorrow to start to use it. Have to keep it in the house to unroll itself in the heat! Picked up a couple of things at Walmart too after that I needed! Home and gave the kids fresh warm water and hay and picked stalls. Going down to -05 tonight with wind chills as low as -20! So looks like Mo will be coming to the house again. Horses in two heavy blankets and hoods, doing fine. Barn was at 27 this morning with ice on their buckets. Gonna be worse tomorrow morn! But then breaking and going back to more seasonable temps starting Monday! YAY! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Well that blizzard that hit the coast was about 5 inches for us, but south Jersey got hammered with up to 20 inches in some counties! Of course I have some bare spots from the wind and then the drifts that are just not fun! Went out about 11 am and started with the snow blower and did all down and around the barn and indoor and out to the manure pile. Then hit the tractor and did about the width of the blacktop and the truck is free to roll. Then used the snow blower and did the gravel side of the driveway. So all in all, about 2.5 hours of freezing my butt off in 09 degrees with the wind whipping! Looks like the rest of the driveway by the L/Q trailer and garage doors will be getting done on Sunday! Yes not Sat, as our high for tomorrow will be only 04 with wind chills of -20 degrees! This cowgirl isn't going out! Kevin just came and took the tractor home to do his driveway, he's gonna freeze, it's only 03 right now! Oh Mo's in the house downstairs in the Rec. Rm. Hopefully he'll stay there all night, there is a litter box for him. Barn will have a hard time staying at 30 tonight! Honey will go potty out the back, got the stairs all cleaned off for her. Here's to warmer weather next week! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Well this day just plan bit it! That snow storm is brutal out there! Snow blowing every which way and temps dropping like a lead balloon! Winds are steady at about 18 mph and gusting to 40 mph! Just flippin' unreal! Haven't had it like this in many a year! And tomorrow the high will be about 06 with chill factor of -15 at least they are saying, same for Sat too! Horses are antsy in the barn with the place being noisy from the wind and metal roof shaking! Just hoping that the inferred heater can stay going and keep it at least about 32 in there and the water hydrant stays working, heating tape on it however! God I wish this would go away! Poor Honey wants no part of it! Can't blame her at all! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Well we had sunshine and it got up to 23/24 after starting out at about 04 at 6 am and 08 when I fed at 7:30 am. So took another load of 3 bales to the horse barn. And Honey got to run the back yard and down and around the barn. She had fun. And don't ya think, Mo scooted out of the horse barn! He was out about an hour and follow me back in when I finished lunging Paige. Then I lunged Indy. Bullseye got to go out in a pasture, he's got long thick hair, so he was fine! Went to bring him in and there goes Mo out again! So I watered, hayed and cleaned up, still no Mo! I was cold by then, so hit the nice hot shower and defrosted! Don't ya think, I now see him by the barn! I'm not going out, I get sick very easily from going out after a shower. So I just opened the kitchen door and called him, he actually came up to the house and ran up the stairs and inside, right down into the Rec Room. So now we'll see what happens in half an hour when I take Honey down there and get ready to go and feed the horses. She's never seen him in her house before! Hope the fur don't fly! LOL!

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Well we got up to a whopping 22 degrees today! And with sun! Got the kids to the indoor for a little exercise. And tomorrow will be the same in the afternoon, like maybe 23 even, but a rough start of 02 they are saying! So I called an cancelled my asthma checkup so that I could stay home and get the kids out again before the next three days of snow and single digit daytime temps! So they'll be in again for a few days! Our street is pure white from all the road salt on it, it's like I know there's blacktop under there somewhere! Well almost time to go and feed! Hope Mo don't run out like he did last night. And he wouldn't come when called, so I opened the hay barn door about 4 inches for him. He bedded down in there over night thank God! He could have froze to death otherwise! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a Happy New Year's vote for ya. Well woke up to 01 with a windchill of -11 F degrees! So not nice out there! Honey stayed in the house and I went and fed alone, boy was Mo looking for her! It did get up to 14 degrees and sunny, so then I took Honey out around 1 pm with me to move more hay to the barn, going through extra trying to keep them warm! Even with the heater going, it was only 31 in there this morning! Then put Honey back in the house and lunged Paige and Indy in the indoor, temp in there was 28 degrees from the sun coming in through the eve lights! Wasn't that bad. Bullseye got to run free. Then fresh water, hay and picked stalls. After that I was a little on the frozen side! Getting ready to go feed shortly! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a Happy Year's Eve vote for ya. Well not a darn thing got done today other than plugged in the Beast to keep the engine warm. Went down at about 1:30 and gave fresh water and hay to the horses and picked stalls. Even Honey didn't want to run in the snow, it was bitter cold and windy as heck! Right now it's 03 degrees with a windchill of -06 degrees! Going out to feed in about 20 minutes. Hope we make it back to the warm house! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Well woke up to about 14 degrees with snow coming down! Topped off at about 2 inches. Did warm up to 21 degrees when the sun finally came out about 2 pm. Plugged in the tractor this morning, and fired that baby up about 2 pm to clear the driveway! Horses got lunch of hay and fresh water just before that. Honey was happy this afternoon, Aunt Erin came to pick up the papers for the clinic, so she got lot's of hugs and rubs from Erin and Aunt Erin got a few kisses from Honey and a couple of barks when she wasn't paying attention to Honey! Other than that, this weather sucks! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Well woke up to 9 degrees and it did make it up to about 17/18 with the sun out! But when I went to leave to go to Tractor Supply, Beast said heck no, I've sat two days in this single digits temp and I'm not happy! Would crank over and not fire up, so had to for the first time since I have her, pull the plug out and use the electric block heater on her! 30 minutes later was a good start and ran smooth. First stop, Ford's for some anti-gel additive for Beast! Put that right in and then to Tractor Supply. Got home and went and lunged Paige and then Indy. Was about 27/28 in the indoor, not to bad! At least no wind in there! Long term forecast is for about at least 10 more days of this! CRAP! And snow in the forecast for tomorrow, they say a couple of inches, we'll see, they've been wrong on everything else! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a chilly vote for ya. Well 07 at wake up time, they said high of 17! Once again they guessed wrong, high was 11/12! And with the windchill it was -04! So not much got done at all! Took one load of hay, 3 bales to the barn in the wheel barrel that was it. Got the mail, didn't even want to walk that far, only 150 feet to the mail box! Kids got the bums rush, hayed watered and cleaned stall at 2 pm. They each now have on two blankets and sheet! Hopefully tomorrow they are right and it does hit the 17 they are predicting after tonight 02 degrees prediction. I have to try to get them to the indoor! Roads are clear, just pure white from all the road salt on them! I have to go to Tractor Supply for Paige's grain in the morning! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Well I'm not impressed with this cold. We had 9 degrees this morning with what they said we'd hit 24, then they said 20 well the high was 17! So with the cold and wind, I decided not to do much, and I had the chiro for my usual back adjustment. Then Wally World for my grocery shopping. Needed a lot of stuff. Want to make some Sweet N Sour Chicken. Tomorrow I hope to get them to the indoor again. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Well not impressed with the temps at all! A mere 18 degrees this morning and the high was only 20 degrees! Not much of a wind and the sun was out, but didn't melt the ice or snow! Did get the kids to the indoor for play time, and yes Paige actually ran and played on her own for the first time ever! I think she really enjoyed herself as she was bucking and prancing around with the tail up! Indy played with his big ball. Honey ran and played in the back yard and down and around the barn! Indoor was about 32 degrees at least. I had on my BOT long johns and my fleece lined jeans and still had cold legs! I hate winter! And tomorrow and the rest of the week, luck if we see about 14 degrees for a high! Make it stop! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a Merry Christmas vote for ya! Well sorry I missed yesterday on HC! The day just got away from me. I had to work the horses and do a few things, then knowing that I'd be home late from Kate & Eric's Christmas Eve Party and Dinner, I decided to take a nice nap before an early feeding of the horses. Had a very good time and had to drive home in yet another sleet and freezing rain, turning to snow storm! It was the drive from He##! Today woke up to 3 inches of heavy wet type snow. And freezing temps and howling winds! Plugged the tractor in and after a two hour nap from feeding the Christmas Breakfast to the horses, I got dressed and went out and plowed the driveway. Then Honey and I played in the snow for a few minutes, gave the horses lunch of hay and fresh water. Then it was over to Kevin's to have some Christmas time with him and his family. There were like 9 of us, had a good time. Was asked to stay for dinner, but they were having Prime Rib and one I don't do meat and they do it rare! I know just sitting at the table and seeing that raw blood meat, I'd be sick and lose it. So I said I had to get home to the horses. I was proud of Kevin, no beer for him at all! Well hope that everyone had a wonderful Christmas Day! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Well it was and still is rain, rain and more rain! But at least no ice for us! Temps been hanging in there at about 36 all day long. Didn't do much with the horses. But did get the shop vac out and de-cobwebbed the aisle way in the barn, up in the ceiling! Then gave them all a grooming and lunch and fresh water. No walks today for Honey! Took her out a couple of times and she ran and did her thing and right into the garage, she hates rain as much as me! LOL! You should see the beautiful horseshoe Christmas Tree that my dear friend Eileen made for me! It's of course in Blue with Gold ornaments on it! And it's from Paige, Indy, Hi Tech and maybe even Beepers shoes! She asked during the summer for any old horseshoes I had laying around, heck I have a collection! Didn't know that was what she had in mind! It's beautiful! On my FB page! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Well not the nicest day out there today! But at least no icy mix! But not above 36 with nasty dampness all day long. And tonight overnight the rains move in for sure! So got the kids to the indoor for free time. Poor Paige, still don't know what to do with herself. So I wound up walking around and we played follow the mommy around! Indy of course loves to run and kick up his heels! Then did lunch for them. Honey and I did brave a walk, little over a mile, but I had my toasty toes on in my boots and a scarf to cover my mouth and help with breathing in warm air instead of the cold nasty breeze! Rain tomorrow, so who knows what I'll be doing! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Well the sun was shinning all day long! Started out at 27 and made a high of 34 F degrees, but felt good, little breeze! Got more hay to the barn, that's done for a couple of days now. And then cleaned up the back yard where that wood was all dropped off. Nice and clean again! Got Paige lunged and 5 minutes of showmanship work, Indy got lunged too today. Bullseye went out in the one pasture, but didn't eat, just honked to be in the barn! Honey and I got in a little over a mile walk. That was it for today! Now a winter mix for tomorrow, with ice to start the day! Not going to be fun, have my yak-trax all set up and ready to go! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Well this is our last warm day for a while again. Going down to low 20's tonight and a high tomorrow of maybe 30! Busy day today! Honey got to go for a ride with me to Lowe's! Of course she came in and was the hit of the place! Everyone loved her and she got so many butt scratches, her favorite! Stopped at the grocery store for some good sale items, it wasn't crowded at all! In and Out, just the way I like it. Home and lunge Paige and free lunged Indy. Worked on patching up the hose with the stuff I got at Lowe's, curing time took longer due to the cold in the barn. But it works! Honey then got a nice mile and a quarter walk in too, windy but sunny at least. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Well it warmed up to almost 48 up here on the mountain. And the sun finally made a brief appearance for about a couple of hours only! But it was nice while it was out! Took some hay to the barn. Paige got lunged and we did some showmanship practice. Indy got to free lunge himself and play. Bullseye got free play time too in the indoor. All the snow melted and the pastures were muddy, so no one out there! Honey and I got a real walk in finally, did about a mile total. Tomorrow it's off to Lowe's and pick up some special sealant for hoses, Indy stepped on my good hose and put a leak in it. I can patch it up and get another year or so out of it I hope! In the cold and on the floor, I guess it just cracked it! Honey can take a ride with me and go in Lowe's too! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Well at least it got up to 40 degrees today, no sun, but the snow melted a lot! Busy day running around. Kids got an early lunch of hay and fresh water. Then off to the Dermatologist, good news, she don't think it's anything serious. It's some kind of Dermatitis thing going on. I've got greasy heel! LOL! So oral antibiotic and also topical lotion antibiotic for 6 weeks. Then back for a check up, if needed then she'll biopsy it! Made a couple of stops on the way home, but home to late to really take Honey for a long walk, it was getting dusk out already! Hopefully tomorrow when it hits the high 40's and they are saying sun!

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Well it was overcast and raw out all day long! But at least the temp did hit about 32 degrees! Went with Erin from the doggie retreat to look at the barn she wants to move the two Thoroughbreds to. It's nice only about 6 miles if that from me. Beckham will like, he'll be out all day long with Prince his buddy and then stalled right next to him. Both are in their late teens. Of course stood outside in the snow most of the time talking, and I was a frozen ice pop! Feet were frozen! Got home and warmed up in front of the wood burner and ate some nice hot lunch. Then went to my kids and lunged Paige first, then Indy. Both were good! Lunch for them. In the house for me and hit the couch with Football on! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.
