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.

Thank You for sending Mistit a vote of congratulations for being HOTD.
I just wish she would have her foal. She still is fat belly wise and has milk. I wish it did not 150 dollar farm call to have the vet come out, but she does not seem stressed or off feed, runs around with Willow and Whisper. So, if it a fault PG, then I will know soon.
Rained all day long yesterday, not hard just light rain, and wind, temps were around 44, so fall is certainly here. Geese are heading your way, been so cloudy, but I can hear them. Caterpillars are everywhere, it seems I am always putting them out of harms way, so they do not get stepped on or ran over.

Come visit me, Mistic, Willow & Whisper.

Happy you are enjoying your retirement! I am counting the days to mine. Of course mine is a early retirement, but I am so ready.~~~~

Sorry I wasn't on for Ace's HOTD. Thank you all so much for the love. We are having some beautiful weather for a change. Can't wait for my days off so I can visit with my horses. They are all doing great. Ace has healed. I did get him some bell boots for when we work and ride him. I have never had to use bell boots before. Ace kept lifting his feet up when I tried them on. Guess he will get use to them. Have a great week everyone!

Come visit me, ACES WILD~Thanks for 20th HOTD & SUSIE AND FRIENDS.

If I could afford to move out on my own, be able to take my animals, I'd have moved out by now. Rick hates my cats. He fusses about Sadie, too. Not nice to Scruffy, either. I know God will deal with him. There's a black dog, female, very sweet, in the neighborhood. She may have been tossed out by some ahole. She was in my yard, Monday night, treeing some of my cats. Rick took a large rock and knocked one of the cats out of the tree. He fell, the dog chased him. He got away, escaping through the fence. Austin and I were both upset. I went out back with Sadie. Rick and Austin went out back with Rick yelling and cussing us. I stayed in the corral to get away from the argument between Rick and Austin. Sadie, who doesn't bite, was listening to him and started biting at me. When Mr. Flapping lips came down to where we were, I made a quick job of telling his butt what's what. He shut up. He paced the yard for a while, then started apologizing to us. His mom has stomach cancer, again. I know this and other things, are weighing on him, but too much is too much. I pointed out that he's not the only one with issues and not the only one with a heavy heart. Guess he thought about it and felt bad. He needs therapy. We probably all do. Proud of myself for the way I handled it. I gave Sadie some love and carrots. Loved on my cats and Scruffy, too. He wasn't in the line of fire, but heard it. Trusting God. I have to. Love my home. It's a blessing. Praying for tomorrow. Thank you for being there. Love and a vote. <3

Saturday was a long work day. I'm only working weekends, for now, because work is slow, so Saturday was a blessing. Need to pick up some Freedom 45. The flies are awful. I feel bad for Tracy's burros. They're so wild, she can't do anything but feed and water them. Too wild to get close enough to to treat for flies. They'll come up to her for the animal crackers she buys them, but for nothing else. Glad Sadie's sociable. I'd be hurt if she didn't allow me to do things for her. She's such a brat but a good girl, too. She thinks a conversation is suppose to include her. Leaving lots of love and a vote from us.

A Vote for You!!
Fast voting so I can get a few more jobs done this morning. Going to rain the next few days, so what to get the garden veggies out. If it rains, then will work out in the shed picking up the mess that it is being coming with never putting theings back and just adding more in the wrong place. I guess 99% are my projects that are not finished yet.

I've kept my Manna Pro fly spray in my hay shed. I've had it for so long, summer heat, etc., I didn't think it would work, but When I sprayed Sadie with it, Monday, the fart'n flies went away. My friend, Tracy, has 2 burros that she adopted. They're wild. When I visited Saturday, the flies were attacking their eyes. So sad. She can't get near them to put on spray or fly masks. After Star went blind in both eyes from glaucoma, I'm careful to keep Sadie's protected with her fly mask. Tracy seems to have more flies at her place than I do. Going to leave lots of love and a vote.

What a great Vegas trip! Austin fell in love with The Hard Rock Cafe and Casino. No gambling, but was so excited about the displays. We had his birthday dinner at The HR Cafe, and he was introduce, by our server, to the patrons who sang Happy Birthday to him. It was a blessing to see him so excited. We went to Planet Hollywood, Bally's, The Flamingo and Caesar's Palace as well as The Hard Rock. Went by fast, of course. We got home around 7 pm tonight. I picked up a shift at work for Sunday. Back to the grind. Scruffy was happy to see us, my cats excited to go outside and Sadie acted like I hadn't left. Much to do. Love and a very blessed Saturday night vote. <3
