How We Met

My Mom's friend gave her to us - she came from Arizona but was originally from VA. Cinnamon has a rare form of Navicular which actually makes little holes in her Navicular bones, it is only in her front feet right now but we do Digital X-rays every other year to keep tabs on it. I will not ride on days that she is limping, so I never know when I am going to get to. We have a wonderful blacksmith that is continually trying to help make her more comfortable & move better, he makes special shoes for her. I cherish every moment I spend with her though. I went away from riding for over 20 yrs and have spent the last five years getting back into it, which has been difficult since I do not get to ride on a regular basis. But we make the best of it!!!.

Happy Mother's Day!! Hope you received lots of hugs and kisses, from your 2 legged and 4 legged babies. Hugs and kisses are better than gifts anyday.
Lilly seemed a lots better the last 2 days, eating good 3 qts 3 times a day, but sometimes plays with the bottle and it takes for every to feed her. Still soaking it 3-4 times a day, and giving her shots. Other incubator goes into lockdown tonight, just did not have time this morning.
Dominic spent the night and helped me do lots of small jobs. Planted some apple trees, digging up quack grass and carrying them to the guinea hens in the pen, once dried I use them to make nesting they are out in the wilds. They like to eat the grass and any bugs.
Went for a picnic in Wausau, with Dominic at my son's house, well, it was a park called Island Park. We walked around the whole island, which has some very old neat cement bridges. Took about an hour. Nice beautiful weather.

Finally after 4 years of working and struggling with Bray, I decided that we just were not going to make it as a team. I started to hunt for a new horse for me and a great home for Bray. I settled on a young lady, she was likely an intermediate rider, BUT she would be boarding Bray at a large show barn, she had a coach and tons of support around her. I said my goodbyes. She kept me updated. She was enjoying him, however, three weeks after she got him, on a fresh slightly frosty morning he was turned out into his paddock, which was on a tiny bit of a slope. Apparently he was acting up, go figure...he took a bad step and they think he tore a patellar ligament (stifle). No one noticed his problem until he was brought in that evening, on three legs. Long story short, after consultation with 3 Vets, his prognosis was poor to hopeless, she was advised to let him go. She called me to tell me the news and asked if I'd like to be there, she said he was more my horse than hers. I declined, but I did go to say good bye one last time. We left a vote today.

I wanted it to work out with Bray, I sent him away for training, I had coaches come in, bottom line, the horse had my number and he knew I was afraid of him and he played it every time. I got to be NO FUN riding and riding is suppose to be fun. In the end, I decided that I really loved this horse, I just didn't like him much. David didn't like him from day one. What I didn't pick up on until much later was, Sterl May didn't trust him. Look at all the pictures of the three of them together, Sterl May is ALWAYS between Bray and Jackie. I should have listened to and learn I guess, have a great day. we left a vote.

There are 3 Marsh Tacky events across the state today, which to my knowledge has never happened before and hopefully points to better days for the critically endangered breed. The one closest to me is an all breed fun show, so I'll be helping at that all day, should be fun.
Well, hope you have a great saturday.

Fast forward again, in this segment I have to say, I learned soooo much. We were all settled in and I wanted a horse to ride, so after some looking(not enough) I bought Brazen Virtue, a 3 yr old Standardbred Trotter. I admit now I bought him simply because he was handsome, wrong reason. As a 3 yr old he was a piece of cake but when he turned 5 he became "the Horse Devil" One fresh September morning I was feeding, Bray was full of himself and as I tossed out a couple flakes of hay, I was between him and Jackie, I reached for Jackie's halter to move him away from Bray, and all I remember is seeing his hind leg in the corner of my eye. It happened so fast. He caught me across the forehead, my glasses went flying and when I woke up I couldn't find them, I didn't know what had happened, I crawled to the barn and called David at home, I said, can you come and help me find my glasses? I fell and they are gone? He came right away and of course scooped me up and took me to the emergency room. He said I was in shock, and insisted that I fell, however I looked like something out of a Freddy Kruger movie... 17 stitches and a nasty concussion. They said a split second either way and I likely would have been dead. Take a look at the pictures below and tomorrow I'll tell you what I should have picked up on from the start, it would have saved a lot of trouble. We left a vote.

Mom said she must have slept wrong, and was laughing and joking when we were there, then went with my other sister to see Uncle Ray. Finally, we had a day with no rain, bright and sunny, so did lots of little jobs outside. My grandson, Dominic is here tonight, he helped me feed calves, and empty feed into barrels.
Tomorrow is the last day of the spring Neilsville Horse Sale. 4 days long, first few are for draft horse machinery and tack, then the draft horses and mule, Saturday, riding horses and tack.

It took me the better part of a month and a half to get the place ready, once all the "junk" was hauled off and the fencing was done, the barn was cleaned out, we opened the end on to the pasture and made it like a large run in, fenced off a dirt paddock and we were ready. We had water, hydro, shelter and pasture, what more do you need... The day my neighbor mowed the 5 acre pasture for me, I cried, because it was so perfect, she was going to have a home, just 1/4 mile from where we live. My riding instructor "gave" us Jackie, a 7 yr old shetland/mini cross as her companion. They became fast friends. All was well with the world, at least my world.

Thanks for coming by for a visit and the compliment.
Well, your mom isn't the only one who hasn't heard of a Marsh Tacky before. There are only a little over 400 of them, but that number is up from the 200 there were a few years ago.
Glad you have the good life and a mom who loves you and cares for you in your retirement. Have a great weekend

Did you receive lots of treats yesterday as our HOTD??
Busy day ....again, my sister called me and said she was talking to Mom, and said she had chest pains, so she gave me a call so we could go over and check on her. She was OK, and did not want to go in to doctor. Stay for a while and eat dinner with her. Took baby chicks out of incubator when I got home, cleaned up other batch (from Good Friday) well cleaned up their tote and put them in the rabbit cage.
Rained all day long, so never got much done outside. Worked in the shed clean up after messy baby calves.

Hi & a vote,
Rocky's navicular is probably not as bad as Cinnamon sounds. He had x-rays this year that the vet said the changes from last x-rays done some years ago were not much, so that was great news. I just know to keep Rocky within the limits of what he can do. I try to mostly walk him when riding on flat trails (no downhill). I always use hoof boots with pads inside when riding too. He lives where the fields are flat and his stall has a flat grid in it so he's standing on flat ground in his stall too. I think all these things help, at least in his case. Navicular syndrome can be different in each case, as I'm sure you know. We did corrective shoeing for many years, but then he started getting more lame, and we changed to barefoot and were going to completely retire him, but then he got somewhat improved without the shoeing and could do a little working.

it is cold..
it was -11 at about 7:30 here. We waited about an hour to go out to feed the animals after that. It was still only about 1 out, but it was at least just a bit warmer.
We're supposed to get even more snow tomorrow here.

I bet Eli would love a candy apple, but then Cinnamon would be jealous. cinnamon can't have a lot of hard to chew treats. Any apples or carrots she eats have to be cut or broken into smaller pieces so she can chew them..

OMG, this is the coldest night of the winter so far, and I know I have mentioned how much I HATE winter, this temp is without the wind chill, you can't even imagine how much I do not want to go outside. I went to feed at 4AM, both Sterly and charlie had frost on their whiskers....I guess that answers my question as to whether they go out today or not, looks like NOT...we left a vote, Love Donna Lee PS our wind chill is -40 C
