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 Sterly, here's a vote for ya honey. I know Sterly, it can be hard to hold up those older legs, but you're doing a great job of it honey. Glad that Charlie can go another 5 or 6 weeks being barefoot till the mud dries up, if it ever turns to mud. I got my farrier next week for Paige, 6 weeks are up. Love on schedule farrier appointment to keep them proper all the time. Love, Marion and the blondes.

I WISH THE REAL SPRING WAS HERE...
I'm so tired of this crazy weather...Greg came by yesterday, we agreed to leave Charlie's shoes off until the mud dries up a bit, first we have to get to the mud, we are still frozen ground in the mornings. He looks good and Sterly did great, it is hard for her her to hold those "old" legs up, but she never complains, love that girl, have a great day, Love Donna Lee

I survived another long work weekend. A lot of customers with bad attitudes, and several servers were in tears from the stress. Not suppose to be that way. Still haven't finished the shed. Needs caulking and the shingles put on. Getting there. Got a doghouse to build, too. Sadie's good. Dewormed her this evening. Got to call the farrier. Have an amazing day, Tuesday. Hugs and a vote.

the instructions were to do the stretches daily for 3-5 days then when ever possible. I'm trying to stretch them after every ride. I'm teaching my students how to do it so I will have help with it. one thing I noticed is that when they pee they do the pelvic tilt. I'm not struggling to do that one. they do it on their own several times a day! lol. I went to charlotte's saddler and met with their saddle fitter. looked at 3 saddles with wide trees. I need a 16in. she will bring them Wednesday to fit them to buttercup then i'll decide which to buy. one is a tucker, one a circle y flex 2, and the third is a circle y trail gaiter (usually used by gaited horses so it's more forgiving in the front for their high action). I picked out a blue biothane bridle and breastplate to go with it. I have to pay $70 for the saddle fitting but it will be deducted from the saddle that I buy. :)

Hi Sterly, here's a vote for ya. Well, that rain last night, turned to snow! Nothing really to speak of here, but just 20 miles from me it was a few inches deep! Has anyone seen Spring? If so, give it our zip code please! LOL! Got over to see Paige and had a showmanship lesson again. Since I can't ride yet, Marissa is really drilling us, only today might have been to long. I felt it a little after the 40 minute workout! Got home and went for a walk, I know walking is really good for the back. Well the one mile I had planned on, turned into close to 2 miles. I meet a neighbor who's year old beagle ran off, slipped it's harness. Spent over 90 minutes walking the road and then the woods by her house looking for Olivia. Didn't find her. Hope she comes home for super! Love, Marion and the blondes.

Yay! I finally got new tires for my car. My old ones were so old, they were probably bought at Methuselah's yard sale. Lol. Methuselah lived to be 969 years old. He was the oldest living man. Anything bought from him would be ancient. Leaving love always and a vote.

Lilly is tickled to be in the spot light as HOTD, today we had a great day riding in the arena, playing on the trail course that I have slowly been putting together, it's been fun, it was 70 + * today, unreal for Mosier this time of year, the cherry tree's are starting to bloom and there was a haunting buzz from the bee's as they were busy working,only put in an hour work at the orchard today, just felt like doing stuff around home and with the farm animals , Jack got a bath and all is good in our world, love Suz and Lilly

Here's a vote from Buddy! It's been a long time since we've been on to blog, I've signed on now and then so my points don't go away, but haven't had time to do much of anything else. So here's a update on us!

Things didn't work out with the move to Grande Cache work/money wise for my fiancé & I, so we moved back to my home town of Grande Prairie, but of course that was after we put ourselves in major debt :( We're living with Robs brother currently, and trying to get back on track. Rob got a job doing the same as he was in Edmonton, and got his class 1 license last week, so now he can drive a big truck of his own and make more $$! I babysit my niece for my sister 5 nights a week, and still sell Scentsy. I'm looking for another job during the day, but haven't had much luck with it yet.

Buddy is still in Grande Cache, hopefully just until the end of this month. I have a place to keep him here just outside of town, I've just got to pay the Grande Cache people up in full before I can move him. I also have to find a trailer to rent and Rob & I both need the day off, as I won't be able to make the trip to GC and then back to GP before I have to babysit. There's lots I need/want to do when I finally have my boy back with me. I of course, want to make sure he settles in to the new place well, and spend some time with him since I haven't seen him this year yet (I feel terrible for this,) plus the owners of the new place want me to get him a vet check when he gets here.

I hope everyone has been well and enjoying horsey time! Hope spring has sprung for you all!

-Buddy & Jasmine

So glad the swelling is going down and you can see again, hopefully no residule effects of the infection,
I been putting a sweatshirt on Jack at night , I think he likes it, the vet is out till the April 1 so I am doing my best with Dr. him myself, if it wasn't for his bum leg he'd be doing great, I keep it wrapped and made him a duck tape boot so he does not drag his hoof raw, this AM he appeared to be walking a little better, trimmed all his hooves last night and put a clean wrap on him, I use 2 pair of tube socks, bandage wrap to hold them up then make the duck tape boot, seems to work great,today is mid 50* here, rain storm last night, wind storm now, and a tiny bit of sun when the clouds pass, Lilly will just be getting visits today !! have a wonderful week, love Suz and Lilly

♡ it will be spa day and flex day for the horses tomorrow. The engine will not be put in Cliff’s truck until Wednesday so he will use mine tomorrow. No hauling out until the weekend.

FINALLY ABLE TO BLOG ON HERE
Wow, so glad to hear you are okay!
So sorry for the silence! I wasn't able to get on for a little, and just the other day I logged on,had time to blog on about 2 accounts, and had to get right back off! So, I apologize. Made a trip into the nearest city, and tripped to Murdoch's.....so the next day Princess showed up with a new cowboy halter.;) She needed one; her blue one was too small, and the other 3 I had were either too large (falling off her nose) or too little (choking her just about!:P) So I fixed that...with not a problem... I could shop at that Murdoch's aallll day. They had adorable chicks and geese and rabbits there too. Well, this is getting late, I just wanted to let you know that yes, I'M STILL ALIVE. And also, thank you for your support! :)
God bless, and have a marvelous week!
