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.

Hi Donna Lee & herd, I hope you had a great weekend! The rain held off for a bit on Saturday. It didn't rain until that evening so I was able to get a ride in on Koot Saturday along with a few of my friends/his horsey buddies. He was pretty happy! But it rained like crazy on Sunday with lightening and thunder and some parts even got hail! Voted. XOXO Danya and Koot

That is the winter. Soon we will forget about it and look for a cool place. Because I was at sea-level for many years (25) and now at over 4500', my body want to adjust. The same will be with Magic because in April she will be 14. Butterscotch will adjust quick because she is still growing
Thank you

Yes, Im so happy for Atlas, I trust Johnny to give him a good home and to bring him to his best abillites. I have seen him work with Claire's morgan horses when we hooked up her green broke mare to a cart for the 1st few times. And he is a great rider, he used to do endurance races and competed in driving classes. I offered to help Johnny whens he hooks Atlas to a cart, so i'll get to see how he is coming along in a few months!!

Hi Sterly, here's a vote for ya honey. Well good in a way that you didn't have to endure 8 hours of freezing in the cold section of the plant! But loss in pay stinks! Yep, chopping ice from under my doors too, I agree, so done with this winter! It's been the worst Feb in 20 something years they said on the news for our state! Love, Marion and the blondes.

Just light snow today...
Good morning all, well my OT day was shorter than expected. Not a bad thing, and it was OK. I was bundled up with many layers to keep warm and as a volunteer they almost always give you an easy job to do. When I got home, I got most of the laundry done and hung out with Charlie and Sterly in the bright sunshine, chopped ice away from the door. Both horses are doing well, I can't wait for spring, I think I have mentioned just how much I HATE winter...we left a vote, Love Donna Lee

Yeah, overtime!
Snow 3 days in a row, then freezing rain/sleet this AM. Thankfully, it warmed up enough that I had running water outside - the calves were out and the horse tub was getting low. Been carrying water out for the calves, didn't want to do that for the horses, too! We're warming up, but rain in the forecast the next 3-4 days. What a mess.

Hi Donna Lee
How are you and your herd holding up in this weather? It was cold here last night, it went down to 20F below zero and it's all the way up to 5F. It is supposed to start warming up a bit tomorrow. Keep your fingers crossed. My horses are eating double their usual amount of feed for this time of year. but they all look beautiful and healthy and happy. Today they are field gazing, I think they are longing for warm summer breezes and sunny windy days. I must confess I am longing for the same.
Take care and God bless...love Celeste

sing is 21 this year and she's eating her hay slowly and losing some weight. she gets a senior supplement with probiotics. I noticed her manure is soft at times, more like a cow patty, so I took a sample to the vet today to check for parasites. not sure if this is just part of getting older, a tooth problem, ulcers, or what. so many possibilities. she's always been a hard keeper, not motivated by food at all and will turn her nose up at it. also, Princeton was lame in his lesson last night at trot. today he looked like he was trotting on it good but I was behind him so it was hard to tell. his head wasn't bobbing anyway. I rode buttercup in the 40 degree wind. she is steady and calm so no problems. I am switching her over to western and looking at some western saddles. she's hard to fit due to her short round body. checking into some draft saddles and treeless.

Spring is just around the corner (I hope)
Second day of snow for us, although no accumulation. Next couple of days will be raw for us (you'd think them balmy), won't get above freezing tomorrow and not much better Sat. Then warming up, but lots of rain in the forecast. Just being a horsey caretaker these days, longing to ride again!

Hi Donna Lee
It's a little warmer here today with sunshine and you can smell spring in the air. The horses are all out and running and kicking up their heels and having a great time today. I have to work. This February has been quite wicked, temperature wise. I cann't remember it ever being this cold for this time of year. But as Canadians we SMILE, LAUGH, COMPLAIN and bear it...AY
I have started planing my show season and some trips to some horsey things. OOooohhh it's all the way up to 17F YAYYYY.

Trotting by with a vote!
What a weekend! I had an exciting time with Cimarron and his buddies. It's been nice and dry for the last several days, so I took Cimarron for a bareback ride, and he was great - calm, (mostly) listening to me, willing to work. It always makes me happy when he's a good boy like that.

Of course, when I took my bareback pad off of Cimarron and set it on the ground, Rango darted over and stole it. He then proceeded to destroy it by tearing it open and yanking bits of foam stuffing out of it, that jerk. Rango has a habit of doing things like that; one time, he even bit (and thereby scratched) my uncle's brand new Ram 3500 when it was parked in the field.

Best wishes!

♡ I made it to work. Bridges and over passes have ice but the freeway for the most part was ok. I still drove like a granny! By the time I get off work it is supposed to be 37 then drop back to the 20’s so I have one more day of driving in this mess. After work yesterday I went to feed the horses their evening dinner and I did stay out about 45 min. to hour but it was too cold to stay out any longer. Happy trails to you and here is a whinny and a click on your horseshoe with love =)

Cold and icy today - glad I didn't have to go anywhere. So much for best laid plans. When I went out to feed this AM (late when the horses finally came up) - their tub was full of ice. Seems the old deicer must have shorted out, and I didn't check to make sure the green light was on the GFI outlet. Scott pointed out the problem, and it is now happily heating away. Still had to carry out hot water, hate having to do that.

No worries Donna Lee, I don't get on the computer all that much either, it takes alot of time and sometimes I just want to do nothing !! Jack is improving steadily, he is foraging alot more which is what he needed to get his strength back, the weather here has been out of this world nice, it's kinda scary hhahahaa, yesterday we pushed open an old logging road at the bottom of the orchard, looking forward to checking it out today with Lilly, yesterday we scared out some deer so I'll have to be very observant as she may get a little jumpy being in an new area of the orchard. love Suz and lilly
