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. Well it's semi sunny and going up again to about 55 degrees! Please dry up more out there! But only for Thru, Fri and Sat of a winter mix moving in! Got a lot going on again today! Gotta get more hay to the barn and some bales of bedding. Plus drag the indoor really good, hopefully the big tractor won't leave 6 inch deep tire tracks on the way down there! Lunge and possibly ride Paige again today. Let Indy free play and Bullseye too! Have to run to doggie vet and pick up more Heartworm stuff for Honey. And you know a walk for Honey for sure this afternoon! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Well we jumped through all those hoops and got on this morning. But have to sign off shortly and get to the barn with the equine dentist! But we got on, don't know if I'll remember what I did, but I'll give it a try again. I like it so much better on here, PM on FB is okay too, but that phone beeping at hours of the night when I'm sleeping it not good for me and then when it beeps when working horses too. Probably like beeping in when other people are at work! So looks like a sunny day and up to about 50 degrees, yes dry up that mud! Just so on Thur and Fri mother nature can make more! Lunging today for them, riding Wed for Paige! YES! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Well rain, rain and more rain! Steady all day long! But just north of us was sleet and snow! So I'll take the rain I guess! Didn't do anything other than groom them today! Sure was glad I got that ride in yesterday, Paige had me on a natural high from it! For not being ridden in over 3 months, she was awesome! So they got lunch at 2 pm after grooming and then I just came back up to the house and Honey and I hung out all day long in here! Going out to feed now, still pouring out! But they say ice over night and bad in the morning! Yep, could be a new YakTrax morning for sure! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Well it was spring time for sure today! We hit a high of 72 up here on the mountain! In the cities below us, about 40 miles away, they hit 82! It did kinda dry up a little out there, only to be rain and a mix for the next 3 or 4 days! But I did have them naked in the barn and door open for nice fresh air! YAY! And best of all, tacked up Paige, lunged her and then bridled and got on! She was a dream! I didn't push much, as I want to take it easy on my back and my knee! But we did a lot of trail course polls and work, and her jog was just so collected and up lifting! I could feel her really using her back! Love that little girl. Indy got lunged then and after that lunch for them. Then Honey and I did a mile walk. The fresh air made up both sleepy! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Well it was an interesting day for sure! Sunshine and temp did hit 58 degrees up here! Started off with I always go on my CC accounts on line and check for any issues. Oh Yeah, Discover had a $530 charge in VA! Spent over 90 minutes on three different phone calls! But me way behind in my plans for the day. Then an issue came up that threw a wrench into the system! Lost an hour or more there! Paige did get lunge and showmanship. Nothing for Indy or Bullseye. Late lunch for me, grabbed a bit to eat for me and had to go and get my Advair 250/50 that I ran out of! That was a priority run! So Honey made a road trip with me. But the time I was home, it was to late to do anything other than check e mails and try to finish up HC before feeding tonight. So hopefully tomorrow will run smoother and I'll saddle up and hopefully get a little ride in on Paige! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Well the rains got here about 1 pm and haven't stopped yet! But it's melting it all off, snow and ice! SO yay! And Tuesday we just could hit a high of 60 degrees, to fast and sudden, worry about colic with those drastic temp changes. Went to town and did a few errands this morning. Then got home and brought in enough wood for the day and night, knowing it was going to pour! Did get Paige to the indoor and lunge and do showmanship. Indy got to free play and run like the wind! On the way back to the barn it was really raining hard, so Bullseye didn't get out to play! Tomorrow! Hay and Fresh water for them and then lunch for me. Honey didn't get a walk today, sorry girl! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

HI Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Well the snow came and most of it left! We got only 4 inches thank goodness! Some places close buy high the jack pot with up to 8 inches. I did have to take the tractor out and do the driveway. But the sun all day and 40 degree temps, melted a lot of it already! YAY! Spa day for the kids. Shaved bridle paths, whiskers and fetlock backs, hate them getting long, that how mud fever can start in the mud and snow. Lunch for them and then a nice walk for Honey and I. Had to use the middle of the road to avoid the salts and snow, but not many cars at all on a Sunday. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Well started out cold 20 degrees but with bright sunshine! Never thought with the sky the way it was that we'd be getting a snow storm later on! So I took the tractor over to Kevin's and he aired up the rear tires, only to find out that the valve stems are kinda shot! So Monday when I go to town, I'll pick up two new valve stems for it. He also put my new YakTrax on my other boots for me, so now I have the old ones for softer ice, and the new ones for the bullet proof ice! Dragged the indoor really good too. Lunged Paige and did showmanship, lunged Indy and practiced setting up for halter. Bully got to free run. Gave them lunch and the took Honey for a walk. But then it had really clouded over and was getting nasty! Sure enough, right after we got home, the snow started! Almost 2 inches already when I fed tonight! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

HI Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Well nasty rainy and then got really windy later on! Did in between the break in the rain get another 4 bales of hay to the barn and a bag of shavings for Bully! Went down my usual time to start to work them, and it was getting windy as heck out. So forwent the idea of saddling up Paige and just went with lunging and showmanship. Glad I did cause the gusts of winds were really bad! Just finished up with her and was getting Indy ready to take out and down came the rains like a giant bucket of water! So he never made it to the indoor. Rain and winds were horrible all afternoon and the temps are dropping! Going down into the teens they are saying tonight. Just lovely cause this will be a frozen mess of ice and mud out there! Oh the joys of winter! NOT! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Well no sun till late this afternoon, but the temps hit 54 degrees! WOW did it finally do a job and melt off the ice! Still have a little left in front of the barn, but everything else is clear! Of course this is going to be to make more for Sat into Sun with 4 to 6 inches of snow possible! Got 6 bales of hay to the barn. Paige lunged and showmanship, Indy lunged and halter and some showmanship work. Bullseye free lunged. Then lunch of hay and fresh water for them. Honey and I got in a mile walk too! so productive day for sure! Possible rain tonight into tomorrow, then going cold again! Up and down like a yo-yo! Good news is, my new YakTrax are here! I'm ready!

Vote 13900!
Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's vote # 13,900 for ya! Well woke up to a sheet of black ice out there! Schools were delayed for 60 to 120 minutes and accidents all over the place. Kevin said the drive to work was horrible! He slide a few times too he said! So Honey and I went to the local feed store to get Bullseye's grain and they were giving out a box of heart shaped doggie cookies to every dog that came in. So you know that Honey was a happy girl. And she got to make friends with a golden named Spike! They were great together, and she loved the bunny in cage on the floor! Didn't get the kids to the indoor today. Had the chiro for that back that's still not 100% from those two ice falls! Speaking of which, got my tracking number and the new YakTrax will be here Thursday! YAY! Went and did my grocery shopping after the chiro. Tomorrow will be lunging day for sure, might even saddle up Paige, could be in the low 50's, YAY! Maybe all the rest of the ice will go away then! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Well we got beautiful strong sunshine with a high of 35 degrees! Sure helped to melt off a lot more of that ice! I'd say the walk way to the barn is now 80% clear! YAY! From the barn to indoor is all clear now. Just out to the water dumping area is a big mess yet, but that's in the shade! So hopefully Wed with temps hitting the mid 40's and sun again, that will deplete a little more. Got the kids to the indoor for exercise! Paige was like BatChit Crazy on the line! Boy did she throw some good bucks in! Bet if felt good to her! Indy started on the line, then went and got free lunged! He too was full of himself. Bullseye was quiet and I had to chase him with the lunge whip! LOL! Lazy Ass! Literally! LOL! Then they got hay and fresh water for lunch. Honey and I got a little walk in, only about 1/2 mile total. But still felt good! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Well not much more melted overnight even though the temps were in the high 40's! They did drop to 34 at morning, so that kinda froze it all up again! Spread another bag of ice melt down by the barn to the indoor, but as of 1 pm not enough melted off to get them to the indoor for exercise. So got another bag and laid that down again! Plus had to put some on the walk way down to the barn! Sun finally came out, but not long enough to make a big difference in melting it! And tonight it's going down to 15 degrees, so it'll freeze back up! GRRR! But made the best of it and got Bullseye all trimmed up, done for another 8 weeks or so! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Well the rains were here all day long! Don't have the rain gauge out cause it's the type that will bust when frozen! But figure about 1.5 inches at least. Will see what the local weather station says later. So the ice is horrible! It's not melting fast enough and the walk down to the barn and indoor is not good at all! YakTrax are holding me steady however! Kids didn't get anywhere today! So lunch of hay and fresh water! Kevin got here about noon and we fixed the tines on the York Rake, and then he helped me clean up the one mat in Indy's stall that always builds up with bedding! He holds it up and out of the way standing on it and I scrap out all the urine soaked mess, Indy's a bit of a pig like that! LOL! That's done now for about a month or so! Sunshine hopefully tomorrow and 40's, maybe melt enough for me to get to the barn and indoor! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Well the rains held off till later this afternoon! YAY! Actually spent the morning cleaning the house! Yes I said house, I hate house work! But the Honey hair was mounting! Got the tractor out and scraped off more of the driveway and gravel driveway, still has more ice, but not to bad now! Got 3 bales of hay to the barn, wanted to take another load, but it was slick going down that little hill and even the YakTrax weren't grabbing the softer snow and mush! So not chancing slipping and pulling my own tendons on my knees! Got the kids to the indoor for some playtime too! Well Lunging and halter work. Finished up with hay and fresh water for them at about 3 pm. That's just when it started to rain and it hasn't stopped yet! But last check out the window before it got dark, it melted off a lot more of the ice/snow combo out there! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Well weather men screwed it up again! First two days ago they said 40% chance of snow today, then yesterday they said sun! Well it started out sunny for like an hour, then overcast and an hour later! SNOW! Snowed all day long, but that light slow snow, so only about 3/4 inch out there now! Tomorrow 60% chance of rain and Sunday rain all day, but temps will be in the mid 40's! So they kids got a spa day today. Lunch of hay of course and fresh water. Honey and I just hung out together all day long in the house! Just felt damp and raw, even with the wood burner going full blast, I just couldn't get the place as warm as I like! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Well what a frozen tundra out there this morning! OMG! About 1/2 ice on top of the wet now kinda frozen snow, with what rain could make it to the bottom, was more ice! Was able to get the big gate open to the entrance pasture to the barn. So after it warmed up and some of the blacktop of the driveway was melting, I figured I'd give it a try! Got the tractor out of the hay barn and headed down to the horse barn with the York Rake dropped to break it up! Got out to the manure pile too, and then from the barn to the indoor and the pass through indoor door! YAY! But on the way back up, hit a heavy spot of ice and busted 2 teeth off the York Rake, so some fixing to do over the weekend! But was able to safely walk them to the indoor for some much needed lunging! Both were a little full of themselves! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Well the snow came and left by noontime, but the bad news is that the 3 inches we got that was fluffy is now solid heavy crap with sleet and rain mixed in with it! Took the tractor out about 5 pm to do just the black top behind the truck and width of the driveway up to the road! Rest of driveway will hopefully get done tomorrow after the sun thaws it out a little! Going done to 15 overnight, so you know it's going to be solid ice! Kids got a good spa day today, deep currying and vacuuming for them! Lunch of warm water and hay! Then my lunch, crock potted some Sausage, Peppers and Onions over rice then. Yummy! So, I got a text from JW my regular farrier this morning! "I would like to thin you for choosing Shoofly Farrier in the past for your horse's care. However, I wanted to make you aware that I have opted to pursue a new path and will no longer provide farrier services. I do apologize for any inconvenience this may cause as you seek a new farrier. JW Goolsby." And there were plenty of people in our NJ Horse Group on FB asking about new farriers! So he has retired from everyone! Wonder if he got seriously hurt or health issues, he's not saying anything about why! Glad that I found Rob! I did have one other that is about 45 minutes away who I know is good, he's still on the back burner if I need to change over! Always something! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Well woke up to it snowing! Only lasted a couple of hours and maybe 1/2 inch! Just enough to cover the ice so you had to guess where it was the worst when walking. Waiting on those new YakTrax and get an email today that they are on back order! Lovely! So by 1 pm the sun was out and melting off more of the driveway at least. I did get the kids out to the indoor, Indy and Paige both got lunged and Bullseye got to run free. I was able to open the main big door, so then after they got lunch and fresh water, I was able to get the big tractor down there and really fluff up the indoor! Then I used the bucket to scrape more of the lower end of the driveway and also the gravel side, want it smooth if I need to snow blow that part tomorrow! Main forecast is 4 to 7 inches, but then the local radio station said 3 to 5 inches! Heck I'd be happy with 1 to 3, but we know I won't be that lucky. And please let it stay as snow! No rain and sleet mixed in! But I doubt it! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Well called Rob this morning while I was still in the barn and thinking about it. Said I have a question for you, please don't be offended or mad at me. First the horses were nice and sound and traveling great on both Sat and Sun when lunged, thank you! Now start out nice, then hit with the questions. I'd just like to know why you didn't par out much sole at all, and not much of a roll on the edges of the hoof wall. He said in this frozen ground and the ice clumps, he likes to leave some protection for the sole and coffin bone to avoid bruising. I did roll over the edges, maybe not as much as your used too. Okay thank you, makes sense about not removing a lot of sole. So with the 1.5 inches of snow and then sleet and rain, it first off killed my Dish Network last night, had to watch the game on the computer on the NFL channel! But at least I got to see the Eagles fly all over the Patriots, YAY! No one got out today for that same reason, everything turned to pure ice over night. Had to spread out a bag of the new salt to get the driveway cleaned up, even the tractor would not have been able to do it! Just would have spun my wheels on it! So they got lunch and fresh water and are fine. Hopefully tomorrow it'll warm up enough to get the to the indoor! As for Wed, 4 to 7 inches of snow with maybe more sleet mixed in with it! Oh the joys of winter! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Well we finally got the snow for about 4 hours before changing over to rain! And with the temps, it's got my dish for my Dish Network froze up! If I can't watch the Super Bowl, I'm gonna be really ticked off! So at any rate, NFL channel or NBC on my tablet should be able to play it! So the horses got to the indoor and lunged. I noticed that the new farrier don't take any sole off and he didn't bevel the bottom of the hoof wall! I'll be calling him tomorrow to ask why he didn't do the soles really and why he don't round them so that they don't break up the hoof wall! I went to Tractor Supply and brought 6 more bags if ice melt! They were out of my favorite that works great and can double as stuff for the indoor to keep the dust down, the Mag/Cal mix! So I could have spent $3 more a bag for the other Mag/Cal but it's already expensive enough. So I went with the Halite salt. It does say it will work even at about 5 degrees outside. So hopefully it'll do the job, probably need it on the driveway tomorrow! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Well it was cold this morning, only 09 with a chill factor of -05! But the sun was out and it got strong and it did get up to about 24 and melted some of the snow/ice stuff. New farrier was here about 10 am, I like him. Not sure about his trim on Paige, I would have done one thing a little different, but we'll see. If I can over to him, I save $40 on two trims, and when Paige goes back in shoes I'll be saving $45 on the two of them. That does add up over the year, but just not sure yet! Have to think about it! Did finally get them out about 1 pm to the indoor for some exercise, just Paige and Indy. Then gave them lunch and I can up and hung out and defrosted in the house by the wood burner! Let's see what tomorrow brings, snow to rain and back to snow/ice again! Is this ever going to stop! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Well we got hit last night with the sleet, freezing rain and snow! It was so bad it knocked my Dish Network out, froze on the dish! What an ice skating arena out there this morning! Half Inch of not nice! Yak-Trax for sure! Wish Honey had some too! Chiropractor called and they got me in for an 11:30 appointment. Had to lay down 75 lbs of ice melt in the driveway and wait for it to melt and then scrap it off and down to the bottom, like recycle the melt salty ice! I'm sore yet, but he said it should be okay, it was really out! Damn ice! Needless to say, no one is getting out! Have the other farrier coming around 11 am Saturday to trim Paige and Indy. Wish I could get her out to lunge first, but if it's not safe, it's not happening! Well gotta go and put the Yak-Trax on and go feed! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Well so far today they have been wrong on the weather. It did get up to about 38 degrees, but they said snow to rain and back to snow! So far nothing at all, just very damp and overcast. So got to lunge Paige and do some showmanship with her, lunged Indy and did a couple of halter set-ups with him. Them gave them lunch and then gave myself lunch! Made chicken noodle veggie soup in the crock pot today. YUM! Honey and I got a nice long walk in, did over a mile, it wasn't windy, so I didn't mind at all. Honey never does either way! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Well it was a mere 13F degrees when I got up with a windchill of the big ZERO! Got sunny for a while, but not enough to warm up the indoor enough to be lunging horses in there. Read a couple of good articles on Horses and working them in the cold, NOT to make them work or train in less than 25 degrees, they too can develop breathing problems just like humans! So no work for them! My hay man did come with another 50 bales for me, close to 180 now on hand, one more load and I should be able to make it till second cut in June of the timothy, or he said he can save me another 50 in case I run low! So I went downtown and hit the produce store and the grocery store and tomorrow I'll crock pot some chicken noodle veggie soup! Honey and I did get in a mile walk, it was only 28 degrees and mild wind, but I braved it! Tomorrow we're slated for a winterery mix, so hopefully not that much winter mix as they are saying high 30's! I hope to get them inside then for some lunging. Oh the joys of winter! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Well it wasn't the best of weather today for sure! Temps dropping through out the day, with scattered snow flurries and wind! OMG the winds are getting worse as the day goes on! Going down to about 10 degrees tonight! But I did get everyone to the indoor today. Lunged Paige and showmanship, lunged Indy and halter set ups. Bullseye got to free play, I actually had to chase him, he was being lazy! Lunch for them and then me. No walking with Honey today, we would have blown away! All week looks to be nasty! Oh well, 50 days till spring! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Well started out sunny and that ended really early, like by 10 am! Clouds moved in and temps did however get to 40 degrees, but nasty raw feeling out there! Went and picked up the newspapers for the doggie retreat. Home and hit the shower, in the winter I have to be in the house a few hours after my shower to adjust, yes weird! Otherwise I get sick! So by 1 pm I was able to go and give lunch to the kids. Had to leave by 2 pm for the Dermatologist, made out good, can stop taking the Doxy-C but have to continue the Clindamycin Lotion and return to them April 30th! Got home in just enough time to walk Honey, but only 1/2 mile as it was nasty and getting dusk out! Don't trust these idiot drives on my road! Snow possible for tomorrow, but they say no real accumulation! We all know what that can mean, nothing or a foot! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Well it rained all night and early this morning. The fog was like pea soup! It cleared off around 11 am, but still overcast out there. Temps did hit about 42 degrees. But the mud was slick, I did get Paige to the indoor, by walking straight out the barn and over about 10 feet into the pasture, nice deep hoof holes, but she didn't slip. We practiced some more showmanship. Didn't take Indy out, he weight like 250 lbs more than her, and he'd be like fetlock deep in it! After that I took Honey for a nice long walk, over a mile. Came back down the barn and gave them lunch. Then went in and had my lunch and watched the Pro-Bowl game. Good game, but the last minute my team NFC lost to the AFC! Oh well, it was a fun game to watch. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Well started out at 22 and did get up to 46 degrees today! But no sun, overcast and windy too! So no ice really melted to speak of! But the top layer of the dirt and grass got soft enough to make it slick walking the horses out of the barn and down that little hill to behind the barn to the indoor. But everyone got out and got Lunged and showmanship, Indy was just halter set ups. Bullseye got to run free in the indoor. Lunch for them and a mile walk for Honey and I. Did have to put the scarf over my mouth case the wind was in my face on the way down of our walk, then nicer on the way home. Tomorrow could be rain, 40% chance, we'll see! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Well it did get up to about 35 up here on the mountain with sunshine and some wind! Managed to get them to the indoor and lunged again and showmanship for Paige and halter set ups for Indy! Bullseye got to free play in the indoor! Then it was fresh water and hay for lunch. Checked on the crock pot, not ready yet, so Honey and I braved a walk in the winds! Did a mile, going down was blowing in my face a little, scarf around the mouth and nose to breathe in warm air. Coming back home, much better, breeze pushed us along! Now hopefully the ice melt I put down does its job and I can get the main gate open to take down 6 bales of hay tomorrow! Should hit the mid 40's tomorrow! Then not as warm Sunday and overcast! Ice is not melting at all! UGH! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. Well started out really cold, high got to 29 degrees by noontime and nice sunshine. So I went for it and got them lunged again. Hay and fresh water for them. Then into town for a couple of things I needed. Got home and since it was still sunny out, with just a light breeze, Honey and I got in about 3/4 mile walk. Cut it short cause the sun was starting to go down and it was cooling off. But at least we both got some walking in! They say tomorrow the high 30's with more sunshine! YAY! Feels like a heat wave with the sun so bright and warm! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Sterly & Blossom, here's a vote for ya. WOW the temps are dropping! Started at about 34 and it's down now to 28 degrees, going down to about 18 F overnight! So heater's on in the barn again and double blankets on the kids! Paige and Indy both got lunged today. Then an early lunch as I had to get ready to go to the lung doctor for my 90 day checkup! Made out great, blood pressure very good, lungs clear and no wheezing! Of course just an hour before I got there, he sent his lead nurse home sick! Could be the start of the flu bug, so now I'll be a wreck worrying about the germs in the office! I get sick so easy! Upping my Vit C and other immune boosters starting tonight! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

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.
