THANKS TO PAULA AND HERD FOR 1000!!!
THANKS TO CISCO AND HERD FOR #1500!!
THANKS TO SHERRY & HERD FOR VOTE 2000!

DreamCatchers Equine Rescue saved him from sure death. He was emaciated.. small, skin and bones and I worried that he wasn't going to make it when I adopted him, but I loved him and knew he would be beautiful some day. He's been though alot since then.... criptorchid, barbed wire gashed, hoof trouble.... but he is tough and comes through it all stong. I am shocked at how his hair pattern has (and keeps) changing.

Celebrating Easter with love, hugs & votes 4 all!
✞ Picking up from yesterday about him tossing his head about bugs. Sometimes I can make a pony tail in his fore lock and that helps a lot. I think he sees his hair sometimes and over reacts, big ol’ treat hound! As soon as we get under the trees on those trails he just stops tossing his head and settles right back into his awesome self. I will add Rocky Mountain facts to my blogs for the rest of our HOTM run. I hope you enjoy them =)
The history of the Rocky Mountain Horse from 1890 to the latter part of the 1900s carries little or no documentation and few facts that can be proven beyond the shadow of doubt. Everyone who personally witnessed the breed's beginnings (back to the 1800s) is deceased, and we have been left with only verbal history passed down from generation to generation. Thus, all that can be recorded at this point in time are the stories recollected by living descendants. Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

vote 2,400 for ya. In our thoughts and prayers!
The more we rode the better Whiskey got at reining. The more miles and trails the easier it got on me and him. I discovered Whiskey loves the water. The picture today was taken 8/2012. We can get in a few minutes but I have to move him out or he will try to lie down, but I can take him right back in and then he settles to stand, doesn’t swim yet with me. We are still working toward that. We haven’t camped out in nearly 2 years, and that is when I can try to swim with the horses. It’s too hard to try swimming when I day ride because of the drive home (driving wet is no fun) -ha ha =) Deacon is my true water baby-he will actually swim with me and never try to lie down. I have also found that Whiskey hates for any type bug to fly in his face-so needless to say while we ride in the open if there are grass hoppers or butter flies, regular fly’s he tosses his head slightly. It doesn’t bother me now but it used to. Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

STARTED STERL'S HAIRCUT....
We are happy to report Sterly looks good this morning, we left votes. I hate when she is off, she is so easy to read, so is Charlie. I realize that even a mild gas colic is upsetting to their systems and it takes a couple of days to get everything straightened back out. Because she is generally pretty healthy, just the usual "old age" stuff, I have always thought that if something takes her from me, it will likely be colic. So I have had a couple of real bad days too... We do what we can, nature takes care of the rest. Have a wonderful Easter, Love Donna Lee

HAPPY EASTER
Good Morning all, thanks so much for the birthday greetings for Sterly & Charlie Bubbles. It has been a busy week. Trevor is still off visiting in the city, he is missed here, our cats just love him and we have actually gotten used to having him around. It is good news that he feels well enough to be out and about. The weather is slowly turning around here, but still lots of mud, Sterly has had a couple days of mild gas colic, due to the change in weather, warm days, cold nights, but is looks this morning like she is feeling a bit better, thank goodness Charlie keeps her moving when they are outside. I had my one year review on my shoulder with Dr. LeBel, she is ever so happy, me too, however because of the little accident at work a couple of weeks ago, she is keeping my file open for another month, just in case. Hope everyone has a wonderful Easter, sending love and votes, Love Donna Lee

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS: “The great Easter truth is not that we are to live newly after death – that is not the great thing – but that...we are to, and may, live nobly now because we are to live forever.” (Phillips Brooks)


Q: Why are people always tired in April?
A: Because they just finished a March!




HI. Here is a vote from Fancy and herd.
Fancy had her spring pedicure this morning before her breakfast. She was a good girl for the farrier. He finished in only a few minutes, and we were on our way home.
Fatima and Trigger ate breakfast while Fancy was away.
The last thing the man told me as I pulled out of his drive with Fatima in tow, "she will not tie, you can't tie her!"
Sooo, today, after some ground work, I tied Fatima. You can see her standing nice and calmly in her profile photo:)

Happy EASTER, for our SAVIOR has risen ♥

Today Whiskey is bowing on the 1 year anniversary of the West explosion. God bless our beautiful town our motto is “After West, forever forward”. God bless our town and God bless America! I continued to work with him and every now and then I still put the O ring on him and to keep him sharp. I am not all that good with all kinds of bits. I have not mastered the bit world-well, probably not a lot of horse things but I am on my journey and heading that way. I can ride Whiskey & Deacon both with just halters on but have never tired bridle-less yet. Another goal of mine after I finish getting my round pen larger and have a set up where it will work for us. Whiskey & I continued to push forward and of course everyday he got better and better. We were learning each other and I loved every minute of it. Phone votes tomorrow, I will get back to our story on Saturday. Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

Here's a vote from Buddy! Last night I was going to phone vote/blog but that plan kinda went down the drain. I dropped my iPhone in the toilet last night sadly, so it has been sitting in a bag of rice until sometime tomorrow morning. I hope that it will take a charge and work normally tomorrow when I take it out!

The weather here has gotten crappy again, it snowed/rained a bit yesterday afternoon and then snowed and stuck last night, as well as tonight. I'm so tired of winter and I'm sure everyone else is too! It's supposed to be warmer in the next few days so I may finally get to ride Buddy outside. Until then I think I will ride him on Friday in the arena after the farrier does his feet. We'll see how that goes, it's about time I ride him. I feel like I'm neglecting him in a way by not riding him.

I will be back on to blog tomorrow as I have the next two days off and I will need a welcome break from the housework I need to get done! I hope everyone is having a good week!

The 1st few times I rode Whiskey my arms were wore out and tired. I was thinking “man what in the world”. He did not and could not Neck rein. He was very hard in the mouth, no flex in his neck but Karla & Tim told me he needed that kind of work. Tim felt he didn’t ride him in collection and so on. He was Tim’s first horse. We would get under the canopy of the trees on the trails and he would do great with my seat aids which I was happy about. That is how I ride him, with my seat and leg aids. I guess we all are supposed to do that RIGHT!!!! I then started planning my next few months of teaching him to neck rein. I just went back to the beginning and put him in an “O” ring snaffle and took it from there. Every day his personality would shine and he entertained Cliff & me with his antics! Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

I had a nice lesson on Rose yesterday. We worked on deconstructed barrels. Then I trail rode for the cool down. It was a fun lesson.

I watched the movie "God's Not Dead" the other day. It was really good. You should check it out sometime.

Here is a good night vote.
My oldest son is riding Fancy in our profile photo. Cowboy and his oldest brother rode in the local Easter parade this weekend.
I have worked with Fatima bridling and listening to the bit from the ground. She does not act like she knows much. But that little Trigger acted kind of like that when we got him. But it did not take long before Trigger was doing very well.
It has been a very busy week. I might not be online again tomorrow because it is the day of my aunt's funeral.

Prayers for Digit's Surgery
Hi Digit, here's a vote for ya. You know we'll be praying for him and you and thinking of you everyday. Keep me posted with a PM on FB! Well so much for the nice warm temps. Started at 60 today and it's been dropping like a lead balloon! Going down to 25 degrees overnight, with the rain changing to possible snow! WTH! Went over and got my last riding lesson of the month as I'll be picking Paige up tomorrow to come home! I can't wait to have her home. Had a really good horsemanship lesson today. Tomorrow we'll do showmanship lesson before packing up to come home. Rained really hard all day, almost 3 inches, have a little water in the one corner of the indoor where it always has a little problem. But I don't feel bad, Marissa's indoor was taking on water too! Heavy, heavy rains! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

It's been crazy around here. I try to get horsey time in as much as possible except for today-winter's back! It's cold, windy, and having some snow showers today! Besides the weather, last year our huge garden tub pipes had been leaking underneath into the pipe opening for who knows how long before I discovered it. It was going on 3am and my neighbour was just getting home from work so I called him over. I couldn't find the shut-off valve and refuse to go into the crawl space! He looked for me and said there isn't one. So I left it. My husband got home about 8am was mad that I didn't shut off the main water to the whole house (duh) and went about fixing it.
As time went on we noticed the floor sagging in the bathroom and the laundry room next to it. Just this past w-end we tore into it to discover heavy mold! The floor must go. Tub too. Out in pieces it came, (it was put in and the walls built around it), which boogered the walls. So we tore out the stand-up shower too, and will give the bathroom a make-over! I will have a nice closet built and a huge stand-up shower (bye bye baths).
What makes it really crazy is we all are using one bathroom (have two teenage girls) and my oldest daughter will be coming for a visit soon too! Anyone have an out house for sale? ;)

thoughts& prayers for you both ♡
Finally that Saturday morning rolled around. I could hardly sleep the night before. Everything was running threw my head about what I was going need and about if I had everything ready for his arrival to our place. I kept thinking about how alpha Deacon was and how they would get along. After all they have road a thousand miles of trails together. . The more I thought, the more I felt like after the ride we would come on home instead of camping. I wanted to get him home and on our property to make this dream come true for me. I had never rode Whiskey until the day I bought him, can you believe that!!! It did not matter to me how he rode at all, I wanted him and that was that! We had a nice ride that day and came on home. Cliff broke out his tools and started working around the barn. Today’s picture is of Whiskey’s first comedy show for us. He said (ha ha) “Dad, I can bring this orange Home Depot bucket to ya, I know it has feed in it for me!” Enjoy! Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

Here's a vote from Buddy! Sorry I did not get on last night like I had planned. My sister called to see if I wanted to come and visit her and baby Brylee again so I went to see them, I know you guys will understand!

Today was a nice day outside, it was about plus 11 out! And of course today was the one day that I wasn't working in the "barn" as us girls call it. The boss has started this new schedule sort of thing where some days the "circled" person's name will be doing other work or odd jobs around the barn instead of the normal day to day cleaning the stalls and that sort of stuff. Today my name was circled so I got to come in to work at 8 AM instead of 630 and I re-varnished the whole indoor arena! It looks so much better and from what I've heard it's been about 10 years since it was last done! Tomorrow the top and bottom strips get painted brown and I may post a picture of how it looks when it's all done!

Buddy & I may go for a ride tomorrow if it's supposed to be nice, but I've heard it's supposed to snow in the morning, so we will see what happens. And finally after waiting all weekend I got to get a look in the barns new little "tack shop" and I bought myself a jacket with the barn logo on it! I've seen a few people wearing them lately and I had to have one for myself! :) I hope everyone had a good weekend and has a great week!

We left off Friday about the phone call to buy Whiskey! The arrangement was made for us to meet that weekend and Whiskey would be mine. The next few days were like a life time to me. I had put in a vacation day for that Friday because I knew I couldn’t concentrate and I wanted to get everything ready for the trail ride …I mainly wanted to get everything ready for his new home with us. Cliff was putting in our stalls at the time. I came home the day Karla called and talked with Cliff of course. Like I said he wasn’t working but he was working at our place (love cheap labor) lol. That next day after work I came home and he had added the 3rd stall, I started to cry of course because I knew he understood how badly I wanted Whiskey. Thank you for your support we appreciate it!
