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.

A Vote for You!!
What a great thing to look forward to....seeing your favorite person in person.
Just trying to get a few more votes in this morning. Nice outside this morning, I think it was 17 when I did chores, up to 23 now. Light snow, a inch or so, each night, but its not enough to cover up my trail across the lawn to the barn/shed. I wish I had a real barn, but the Menard shed is divided into a shop, and back part I have hay, a tack room, feed room, which is now filled with "stuff". Pen for the babies, Pickles and Paisley, plus a pen for the noisey guineas hens. Hope your weekend is great.

Buddy Guy here I come...
So after weeks of scouring the Buddy Guy website and checking the Canadian appearances, remember I was hoping he would add London. He didn't, but one day about a week ago I saw a small blurb that said Buddy Guy in Kitchener Ontario, I thought it must have been a previous show, but I checked it out and sure enough he is only playing two Canadian stops on this tour, Toronto and Kitchener. Kitchener is pretty close to us, but when I went to the Box Office there were only "nose bleed" seats left. I was so upset that this show was not on the Official buddy Guy website and all the great seats were sold already. Remember no one has worse luck than me...Then I saw an ad for two front row seats for re sale. David warned me that ticket fraud is a big deal, so be very careful. Long story short, turns out the man that purchased these tickets is also a huge fan, however, he has a vacation conflict for the day of the show, he wasn't sure they would be back in time so he decided to sell the tickets. He wanted the same as he paid, not looking to make a profit. I contacted the Box Office to verify that these were in fact legitimate seats and after they confirmed it, I said SOLD. April 20, Centre in the Square Kitchener Ontario. early retirement present for me. I posted a pic of the theatre, and the two yellow dots are our seats. I'm so excited. Have a great weekend. Love Donna Lee

How's the shoulder doing? Hope it's not bothering you too much. Have a crew coming out Monday to put down gravel in the stall and front of the barn (still wet). They are even going to put down the stall mats for us (I just need to find 16). We did a swap, so will not be out of pocket.

What a surprise to see sweet Kisses as HOTD. I will have to send Stephanie a messages. She just sent me a bunch of pictures of Kisses about 2 days ago, so I will have to post them. One is of her daughter, 5 riding Kisses. Stephanie, said Kisses learned to just except a rider, and saddle that riding is just second nature to Kisses. That you for the vote, it is very much appreciated.

Yay! Corral panels are up. A friend helped me with them. She brought a 5 year old girl named Rosie with her. Lisa said Rosie has the mental capacity of a 2 year old. She brought a bag of carrots for Sadie and fed them to her. Rosie, also, rode bareback. My internet is running soooo slow. Taking forever to vote. Hope you're all doing well.

like the new picture. We don't have uch snow here anymore... it all melted. We only had about 3 inches. An hour away from us got 2 feet. I can imagine that it probably hasn't all melted yet.
Sorry haven't been able to log on. Not having a good weekend/week. Yesterday got some much needed horsey time in. Had Cinnamon out for a while. Left her trim the foot long grass in the round pen area, rode a little (I finally was able to trot without holding onto the saddle horn, so I feel like I accomplished a bit), cantered a little, left her eat some more grass, then rode a bit more. cinnamon has definitely improved. Only twice she tried to rip the reins out of my hands for grass. She's at the right weight now, but I need to talk to the vet about her worm problem. I asked the farrier yesterday if she has registration papers at all and he is going to check. hopefully i can get those. Eli was stayign in shape yesterday too. He ran laps around the pasture. lol. Once, I took Cinnamon across two bridges, she was fine and then she realized she couldn't see Eli. She freaked out adn tried to run back to the barn. she hhalf reared at the first bridge whe I tried to slow her down, but once he was back in sight she calmed downand I was able to ride her at a walk back to the barn. Waiting on stone to be delivered for the round pen. It is taking forever. Hopefuly it gets here soon.Thanks for HOTM everyone! I felt kinda bad that Caly didn't win, but hopefully she will run again sometime!
It was fun to share Eli's story wtih you all. I'm not sure how mny votes we ended up with exactly, but when I checked last it was about 300-310.

We are going to be voting for Lilly now! Hope you all had a great weekend and I' hoping to get back to the newsletter now that Eli's story is over.

Sat. & Sun were just beautiful. It was sunny and Sat. was 78 and Sun. was 81. I got all my to-do list complete Saturday and Sunday I hauled out to the lake to meet Bill & his wife Angie. This did not go well, we got about 1 mile out and her horse bucked her off. It's her daughter's horse but has rode him before and he was fine. I believe some people just shouldn't ride. She try's to ride because of Bill's love of horse's and riding. That doesn't work though in a lot of cases. Needless to say Deacon and I stayed with Angie while Bill ponied her horse back to the trailer and unhooked his trailer and came out to pick her up. I rode back by myself but I enjoyed it, haven't rode alone in a long time. After getting home really early, I messed around with the horses at home some and then just relaxed and watched them graze. Have a wonderful week every one!

The wind is horrible and cold. Rained last night. Sadie's corral is flooded, again. Rick's suppose to pick up my new corral panels today. Those panels will be connected on the west side at a slightly uphill angle. Should give her dryer space. Anxious to get the corral expanded, too. Have a wonderful Monday. Love and a vote.

Hi Sterly, here's a vote for ya honey. Oh wow, that weather up there has been anything but nice to ya! I hope that they can't decide to make an issue of you being on the disabled list and back in physio for that shoulder.

Sterly's new profile pic is lovely, although I'm sure you'd like the snow to go away! I hope your shoulder feels better soon. I'm sorry to hear that your company won't acknowledge it as work-related. Anyways, I hope your weekend is going well. Sending warm wishes your way!

I've been hanging out with Cimarron, but he's not very happy with me right now because I gave him some dewormer. He started losing some weight and he's had loose manure off and on for the last couple weeks, but he's got a bit of a belly on him, so I decided to give him his spring dose of Moxidectin early. I'm giving him some extra senior feed too. However, Cimarron hates taking dewormer. He was very uncooperative about it, and he was so upset that he wouldn't take the carrots I offered him afterwards. So, now I feel bad; Cimarron is really good at making me feel guilty.

This weekend is wonderful as far as temps are. In the 30's, but last night when we came out of Mass/Church, it was raining, which is never good this time of the year. Nothing seemed slippery this morning, so must not have rained too much. Getting a few more eggs each day....up to 3 now. Would like to start incubator up, but have to get a different rooster so just will not take the chance on getting deformed baby chicks. Whisper was right there this morning, waiting for her treats. Give her a candy cane each morning, and of course all the little ones get there cup of grain, well more like 2 cups. Whisper and the little herd are sending you and your herd a Sunday morning vote.

is it spring yet...
Yesterday morning after their breakfast I put them out, it seemed to be going OK, but then the wind came up, it was stupid, both of them tearing around. There is still quite a bit of ice under the snow, so to be safe back inside, after lunch the wind died down, the sun came out and it was quite mild, so out we went. Looks like today will be the same thing, rain moving in around lunch. Enjoy your day, one more closer to spring...Love Donna Lee

Hi Sterly, here's a vote for ya honey. Oh no, the snow stills flying! You've had a rough winter for sure! And we've been just the opposite, very mild for us. That is really bad that they won't treat you for the repetitive motion problems, cause that's what's causing it. Personally, I went through that same thing back in 1996 with my job, I had to get a lawyer and sue for them to pay all my medical bills from the problems. I won the case!

So sorry you're back in physio for your shoulder. Duh, you've already had surgery for the same condition (work related, I'm sure), why do they consider it a pre-existing condition? Know nothing about the law in Canada, but maybe a lawyer consult? Sure hope you make it till retirement. Love the new pic.

That is terrible that your company will not admit your injury is due to repetitive working. Same thing happened to my hubby, he worked with his dr. and he got to retire early, because of his injuries to his knees and got them replaced, since he could not go back to work until he was 100 percent able to do his job. Best choice he made.
Thank you for Mistic and new baby's congratulation....now have to think of names.
