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.

Sadie's mister came a day early. Austin and I put it up. Somehow, one of the heads got stripped. Instead of sending it back, I'm going to seal it off. The rest of the heads work great. Sadie enjoyed spending time with us. She was so cute watching Austin. Easily entertained. Lol. Love and a vote.

Hoping to redeem my points for a riding helmet. Need about 51,000 more points. I ordered 2 calendars, over 2 years ago, and only received one, losing 20,000 points. Hoping the helmet will still be available. Much love and a vote.

Happy Canada Day!
Did you get OT for working the holiday? Does everyone get the weekend off to make it a long weekend? That's pretty much how it goes here in the states.

Hi Sterly, here's a vote for ya. WOW what a show. Started with a Tornado going through just behind our barns, it did a lot of property damage to the place and to many homes and roads. But horses and people are all okay. We had a great show! Paige was Circuit Class Champion in Novice Amateur Mares, Novice Amateur Ranch Pleasure, and Amateur Ranch Pleasure, Prizes were (2) those folding logo chairs and a cooler for the circutis and plus we won 2 halters, 2 bottles of Pyrhania Bug Spray, Bag of Peppermint treats, Logo Grooming towels and another lap top case. Put 4 National Halter Points on her and 2 National Ranch Pleasure Points on her lifetime AQHA record. Indy was a good boy, only got lunged due to the heat and that we lost the indoor bubble practice arena to the Tornado. And it was only about 100 feet from our barn. One motor home out past my trailer bad it's roof ripped off! And Saturday night we had another bad storm, that our barn was evacuated to the show indoor arena for the safety of the horses! Got home 9 pm Sunday, spent the day unloading. And had the doctor about my Thyroid. Have to go Thursday for a biopsy! Prayers please folks! Love, Marion and the blondes.

Sorry you haven't been able to get your hay yet. Everyone's been baling around here like crazy everytime we get a bit of dry weather, a lot of it is sitting out in the fields because it's too wet to get it in and it's nearly time to bale again.

We received 1 ¾” of rain last night-the wind was unbelievable!!! I had to go and get feed and grocery’s yesterday and by the time we were finished it was too hot to ride. I did get fly stuff on the boys and checked the fly mask and then just watched them graze for the evening! Working the weekend but will try to do something with them after work but it will be to muddy to ride. Here is our finial tidbit on the Fabulous Rocky Mountain Horse Breed!
*TOBE was used for breeding until July of his thirty-fourth year, and he passed on his gait, disposition, and other great qualities to his offspring. It has been said that TOBE's progeny followed in his "perfectly-timed" footsteps. TOBE sired many fine horses before his death at the ripe old age of thirty-seven. One outstanding trait passed on was longevity, as many of his offspring were still breeding into their late twenties and early thirties.
Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

* In the early 1960s, Sam Tuttle managed the trail riding concession at the Natural Bridge State Park in Powell County, Kentucky. He had as many as fifty horses there, including TOBE. This stallion was often seen tied to the hitching post alongside all the mares. He became quite well known in the ten or so years he was ridden there. Besides breeding, TOBE was used as a trail horse. He carried Sam, and sometimes the trail guides who worked for Sam, with sure-footed ease over mountainous terrain for many years. Although Sam would allow other people to ride TOBE occasionally, it was always a ride closely supervised. He loved to show off his beloved stallion, but also kept a close eye on him. Everyone who rode TOBE enjoyed his gentle temperament and comfortable gait. It amazed people to think the well-mannered horse they were riding was indeed a breeding stallion.
Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

Those wonderful old horses can be a bugger to keep in good weight. My old mare lived to be 31, and she got fed 3 or 4 times what everybody else got,senior feed, 24 hr turnout, but she stayed kinda thin too. It's easy to see Sterl is rounder in her rump now than she was, and that's amazing considering her age and Cushings. Glad she's responding to the new feed, I know you're pleased.
PS. Happy birthday, sweet girl

Harvest is 3/4 done, very tired, it's a nice crop this year Lilly and I enjoy eating cherries just about every night, toying with the idea about loading her up and trailering her into HoodRiver just 10 miles away to the Saddle Club Trail course challenge this weekend on the 27th, not sure how busy we will be and it's suppose to hit 106 * on Saturday, insane for Oregon, I think I will give her a bath on Friday and see what Saturday is gonna look like, it would be kinda fun I think, it would be a first of any kind of competing for us. Love Suz and Lilly

1st show for both of us :)
Hi finally things have quieted down. What an awesome weekend. I am so happy with my boy. He did great. The trains and stock cars didn't bother him! My nephew was so impressed with how he handled. We got 5th in our 1st ever halter class. He was so good. I have to thank the minis LOl Jax had never seen one. He squared up for me and just kept looking at the one in front of him. We may have done better, but he moved one foot just as the judge walked up. Still I am so excited. Then for fun we did 3 events in the gymkhana. Got second in trail and 3rd in barrel. All were jack bennie classes (39 and over). I only trotted him. We still have to learn control at a lope. I hope all is well with you. We are waiting for thunder storms. hope they don't show up. Vicki & Big Jax

Come visit me, Big Jax.
