How We Met

We needed a new trail horse and found Cowboy's ad. The prior owner is so sad to let him go, but we are happy he is coming to join our horsey family.

Cowboy has arrived at his new home Friday, 4/13/2012. First all the horses are inside the barn to begin getting used to each other.
4/14/2012 - Cowboy was in the Round Pen for preliminary introduction to his new stablemates. Rocky likes him!! Yay
4/17/2012 I rode Cowboy on the trail 1st time. He was out already twice for testing with my daughter riding and was good. :)
4/24/12 Cowboy is turned out with Rocky for the 1st time & they do great together - as in nothing happened.
5/14/12 - 1st away trail ride for Cowboy (with Comet)! Cowboy is a champ!
5/26/12: Cowboy is turnout with the full herd on the pasture. Everything goes well but he's staying close to Rocky when the others approach.
6/10/12: Saratoga Battlefield National Park Trailride
6/23/12: Grafton State Park Ride
8/7/12: 1st solo trail ride on Cowboy
8/4/13 - Cowboy shows in English Open Pleasure and in his 1st show took 3 blues and the show champion for Open Pleasure! Way to go, Cowboy (& rider, my daughter).
Nov 7&8, 2013: Cowboy is ridden at the Equine Affaire in W.Springfield MA by my daughter in two of Julie Goodnight's clinics. The training my daughter has been doing on Cowboy is showing. I am so proud of the team!
Dec 25 2014 - I gave Cowboy to my daughter for Christmas. See me at new profile 278871.

A heavy rain storm is predicted for Thursday through Saturday. My hay shed's developed a leak, so I put a tarp over the roof of it. I hope there aren't any winds. Going to pick up an extra corral panel, or 2, when I can. At least Sadie will be happy. She'll get to roam the back of the property. Have and awesome day. Love and a vote.

We had a beautiful winter day yesterday. Temps actually got up to 40, got some jobs done outside. Bedded down pigs out with loose straw again. They have a calf hutch, and about 3 feet of straw and saw dust under it all. Cleaned out some of the chicken coop, and added more leaves. They have ashes to dust them selves and it is right by the windows, so sun can warm it up....but they are the worst house keepers, even worst than me....they just throw the ashes everywhere. What they need is a 24 hr maid. Brought home another 20 small bales, just so the next cold spell which hits, I can feed under the lean-to for Harry and Jack, Harriet went in the pen with the other 2 steers and horses, so if she is not bred yet, she will not get bred, and end up having the baby in the cold weather. Now, it will be summer before they can be together. Even the horses love this weather, seen them galloping...short bursts of speed, this way and that....later sleeping in the sun.
Many schools still closed, electric out, but not where we are. We did not get not much rain, but did get snow.

It didn't rain much. Temperatures are in the 60's during the day and the 40's at night. It's nice, but chilly at night. And Sadie does need training. Too spoiled, too. Hope everyone has a beautiful Monday. Love and votes.

Neighbors, I wish mine lived more than the mile away, because it seems, near every summer evening when I am riding they are either shooting their guns or fireworks, and if one horse gets jumpy then they all do.
I would love to have a wood cook stove, have to learn to burn things all over again,...just got that part down just right. :)
Nice outside this morning even if it -8. Frosty the Snowman, must have been busy all night long, painted all the trees and bushes in frost, and with the sunlight they sure sparkle....Mike said they were my diamonds, and then the slight breeze they fall down and leave giant flakes all over the ground, which lay thee and sparkle. Sun is out so day will be bright and warm....Whisper, Willow and Mistic are standing sleeping against the tin shed to warm up.
Dominic got to spend the night, so frying a lot of potatoes, bacon and cheese, which only Grandma know the secret recipe for!!

Rained some on Saturday. Was going to let Sadie out but went in her corral to see how the ground was. Not slippery, so her butt is still in it. Lol. She's mad. I know it's because she thinks she's suppose to be let out. It's amazing how much attitude she has. Gave her some carrots, loved on her, and now, I'm sending you votes. Love and hugs.

Oh, I wish I had a old wood cook stove, my Mom cooked on one, and our house was always warm in the winter, and of course too hot in the summer. As long as it is not -25 outside and a south wind, our house stays about 60 which is not bad, sort of use to it, and "when" the sun shines, is feels warmer. You are not going to believe this but this week we should warm up, calling for 30's, it's call winter thaw. But that also means, getting more small squares, and loose hay for bedding in the pig houses, cleaning out some of the chicken coop, and getting things ready for the next cold spell. I think it would be or is worst in the states that normally do not get winter weather, and now have wind, snow, ice, sleet, and rain. The snow I walked threw this morning, just to see how deep it was...15-16 inches, and where it drifted, it was 30 inches, when t gets to be 60 inches, just the top of my hat/head will be sticking out. I will have to wear one of those little flags, so Mike knows where I am stuck in the snow. :)

Sadie's been out of her coral for about 2 weeks, because it was slick and messy from all the rain. As soon as she was put back in, Monday, it started raining. I had to let her back out. Hope you're all doing wonderful. Warm hugs and a vote.

E-Mail cards are found under Horse Videos & Fun, sort of close to the bottom. Points add up faster, because I think they are worth 150 points. Speaking of points, I turned some of mine in to receive very well made mini halter. I picked the biggest size which will fit a regular size colt or pony. Such nice colors, I received 2 of them.
You might not believe this but temps outside were actually 12 above!! TEmps inside the house still not much above 53, pipes are hot water temps are very high, but for some reason not heating the house good. Mike is going to see if he can get whole of the dealer this morning.

Wormed Sadie. Austin use to hold her head up and battle with her, so I could give her the worming treatment. The last 2 times, I gave it to her without any help. She just stood there and let me give it to her, then swallowed it. Good girl! Big brat, too. Lol. Love and a quick vote.

Giving Sadie her week of psyllium pellets. With all the rain and the ground being wet, I know she's in need of her monthly treatment. I make it a point to keep up with it. I think I may be a little behind on worming. Will get that taken care of, today. Had the farrier over before all the rain hit. Just need to ride her. Love and a vote. <3

Hi Cowboy, Happy New Year! I did my best to get time with Koot over the long weekend, but it was raining on New Year Eve day so I only saw him to give him some love and treats. Yesterday, it had dried up a bit so I was able to get him turned out and he needed it! He was running around like a very happy boy! I think I had him out for about an hour just letting him stretch his legs. It's supposed to rain tomorrow and then Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday so not sure when I'll get more turn out time with him :( but I'll at least try and see him this weekend to give him some love and treats. Voted. XOXO Danya and Koot

Left early this morning to take Mikey to dentist to fix "something". So now will have to play catch up on jobs, I fed extra last night knowing the feeding would have to wait until we returned home.
Sending out the search party for some missing "cleaning fairies" because no one showed up when I was gone, so its time to chase the dust bunnies.

Happy New Year!!! Hope tomorrow is a new start for all the bad things I must have accomplished.....or at least the start of new bad things....according to the Bankers. I am eyeing up a pair of blind minis, but it is so far away for hauling. Plus lots of interest with people that have more money and a better barn/stalls/pens. Right now, Jack, and the 2 hairy yearlings are taking up any spare space.
New snow last night about 2-3 inches so makes walking easy over the icy and rough areas.
No plans for tonight, (New Years Eve) except going to Mass and maybe stop in by Mom's, but we go to her house on Sundays anyway, so might not stop. We get out at 5, so that is right at her supper time, and always still have chores to do when we get home.
Happy New Year Again!!

A nice weather vote for a change. Have been get a bit of snow everyday, since we got rain on Christmas. Snow is hard and crusty, and sort of hard to walk on my paths, so I just take a short cut, the long way around...:)
New cat, Smokey Joe, still is here, and I made appointment for getting Sadie fixed 125, with shots, but I knew it was coming, so I will have to count what I put into the envelope for her. I usually just put in the change from grocery shopping.

Quick votes again, mike has to take Mikey back to Rice Lake, to the dental lab. It would have been a long 6-8 hr wait yesterday. Did get cat food and a few other things that some critter "added" to my list. Weather is around 20-27, heard it was abbove freezing some places but not here. Sun did make a 5 second appearance yesterday after noon.

The pig's back. I was worried that something bad happened to her, because I haven't seen her in about 2 weeks. Tried to give her water, carrots and an apple, but she wasn't interested in any of it. She wouldn't let me get too close, either. She loves Sadie. Not sure how Sadie feels about her. And one of my cats is enjoying the perch. Love and a vote.

I spent my Christmas money on my cats. I bought them a nice perch and another gift to play and sleep in. Of course, they don't care for either. I bought Scruffy and Sissy a squeaky toy, each. Scruffy shredded his. Sissy's is ripping, too. Sadie got huge carrots. She's always happy with food. Lol. Lots of love, always, and a vote.
