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.

Miracle's update:
Healing Hearts Animal Rescue and Refuge.
"Friends, it is with heavy heart that we bring you the news of Love's passing. Once we got her safe to our refuge, she started to seize. She had been carefully and thoughtfully examined by 2 vets, as well as monitored 24 hours a day by our staff. We agreed that she needed to be set free, as not to harm herself and to be allowed to pass with dignity. She was surrounded by people who cared, loved and honored her life. She went over the bridge under the warm sun, in the arms of those who saved her from abuse. She was not alone." Love and a vote.

Monday already...
Yesterday I had one of those "why do I even have a horse rides"
Charlie was just a pain, he was anticipating the canter and that was all he wanted to do, just would not listen, pulled thru my hands, head high, if anyone was watching(they weren't) they would have thought I have never ridden before in my life. I finally ended on a positive and said tomorrow is another day...Love Donna Lee

Quite day for me....
David is off today with our brother in law Bill (Jackie's husband) he has been keeping busy since Jackie's death. They are headed to a family reunion, I'm not going because it is quite a drive and it will be a long day, I don't want to leave the animals that long. We went about 5 years ago to a big reunion, we have lost several cousins since then, we are all getting old.... Have a great day, Love and a vote. Donna Lee

Hi
Been so busy with work and the farm now the weather is nice haven't had much time to get on the computer.
It's nice to see color again rather than just white (snow). Haven't taken Crystal out for a ride yet, just haven't had the time.

Come visit me, Crystal to succeed.

Rain is in the forecast but hopefully I can capture a few rides, if not I will get ground work and grooming in there. I also will catch up on rest of the to-do list. I don’t go out of town or doing any other things for vacation as you already know-lol! . I have flown and traveled a many of place my whole life and now I choose to be with my life time love~HORSES! I’ve worked hard all my life to get to where I am now (of course I continue to dream of more with my horses) but my off time is dedicated to them and I’m very happy about that, it truly makes me happy ♡ Have a wonderful day and week ♡

Hello! It's been so busy and stressful nearing the end of my last semester before summer. I've finished uni now and I'm pleased to say I have free time to spend with my lovely boys. Dino is doing really well, I've been working hard with him to build his confidence and he's showing great improvement when ridden. For some reason everything is more scary when he can't see me to reassure him.
Had a lovely evening ride today, a pheasant shot out of the bushes between the fields and instead of spooking dino, although he flinched, turned his head to look for me. I was so proud he thought before running off. Gave him a good boy pat and rode home. Sounds real simple but it's made my year!
How's it all going up your way? Hope the weathers good!
Take care

Come visit me, Dino.

Will the rain never stop?
You have non-stop snow, this year we've had non-stop rain. Looks like the worst of it will be up around the OK border, so that's good. Just a few brief thunderstorms our way, according the radar. Still 80-100% chance of rain the next 10 days. Usually by this time, we're praying for rain. We are SUCH a muddy mess!

Hello to all. Sorry if I leave anyone out but I'm not supposed to be on here right now-shhh!-but I never seem to get the time!
My dad is slowly declining in health and is praying to die. It is time he goes.
I found out I'm going to have to have surgery to remove my uterus and possibly my only ovary due to monstrous fibroids. Usually those are noncancerous but due to my cancer history, the doctor will have it checked. So because of that possibility, instead of laparoscopic surgery I think I will take the incision so he can remove it in one piece. This will set me back around 6-8 weeks. No riding, no lifting, no mowing, no heavy chores at all! A.K.A. Worthless! So I have decided to put it off until after the summer and 4H and new granddaughter arrives.
The horses are good, healthy, and so shiny! I just looked at them-so pretty in the sun. They are in excellent health and dappling too! I haven't tried Bub in the trailer lately which I need to be more consistent but I can't be in a time crunch which is what I've been in lately. Being in a hurried state would be worse than not at all. If he doesn't make it to 4H this year, it's a shame but fine. We just picked up another horse, Pumpkin, to show too. He is a fat QH guessing 250 pounds overweight! Daughter and I started working him yesterday. So now 3 horses and a two horse trailer! Unless we hitch a ride, someone is out!
I hope all is going well for all of you. I will try to get on here more. I know I'll be on after surgery a lot-that's not the way I want to do it, but it is what it is! Leaving a vote! Have a good day.

Glad to hear you don't deal with depression, I've heard it is really hard on people, I use to worry, all the time about my kids, animals, life in general, ect, then one day I realized I am just adding stress to my life over something I have no control over so I finally let go and let God, it was a weight off my shoulders I also turned 50 when that happened, must be something about that age for a woman it's not that I didn't care anymore, something changed ? It has been spring here had a 15 minute storm around 8 last night, thunder lightning and a soaker rain, pretty refreshing this morning, the other night we had hail rain, thunder and lightning, that one lasted a little longer with alot more rain.
Made another trail obstacle took Lilly 2.5 hours to finally go through it, it is a gate of those swimming pool noodles, kinda cool, can't believe she was so stubborn especially because of some of the tree branches we ride through in the orchard, Maybe because she can't eat these as she passes through LOL Hope you all have a lovely week, love Suz and Lilly

Holiday Monday, at least it is paid....
We went to a mortgage burning party yesterday. I'm not one for going out much, but this was a good time. It is a co worker, she is a year younger than me. They had a fish fry to celebrate paying off their house. It was mostly family and a few friends, like me and David. Tons of food and a beautiful sunny afternoon. Talk soon, have a great day, Love Donna Lee

Glad they are gettting in some grazing time
Luckily only got 2" of rain this AM, 10" to the N and W of us, they were big time flooded. Glad we're no longer in a drought, but wondering when all this rain is going to end. Need to get more cattle cubes tomorrow, will be trashing nearly 100# - they are getting moldy. Keeping a close eye on the horse feed.
