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!

Once again thank you for sending Mistit a vote, hugs, love, and wishes for more treats...she liked that one the best, because she got a few extra apples. But that stinking steer took one of hers.

Thank You for sending Mistit a vote of congratulations for being HOTD.
I just wish she would have her foal. She still is fat belly wise and has milk. I wish it did not 150 dollar farm call to have the vet come out, but she does not seem stressed or off feed, runs around with Willow and Whisper. So, if it a fault PG, then I will know soon.
Rained all day long yesterday, not hard just light rain, and wind, temps were around 44, so fall is certainly here. Geese are heading your way, been so cloudy, but I can hear them. Caterpillars are everywhere, it seems I am always putting them out of harms way, so they do not get stepped on or ran over.

If I could afford to move out on my own, be able to take my animals, I'd have moved out by now. Rick hates my cats. He fusses about Sadie, too. Not nice to Scruffy, either. I know God will deal with him. There's a black dog, female, very sweet, in the neighborhood. She may have been tossed out by some ahole. She was in my yard, Monday night, treeing some of my cats. Rick took a large rock and knocked one of the cats out of the tree. He fell, the dog chased him. He got away, escaping through the fence. Austin and I were both upset. I went out back with Sadie. Rick and Austin went out back with Rick yelling and cussing us. I stayed in the corral to get away from the argument between Rick and Austin. Sadie, who doesn't bite, was listening to him and started biting at me. When Mr. Flapping lips came down to where we were, I made a quick job of telling his butt what's what. He shut up. He paced the yard for a while, then started apologizing to us. His mom has stomach cancer, again. I know this and other things, are weighing on him, but too much is too much. I pointed out that he's not the only one with issues and not the only one with a heavy heart. Guess he thought about it and felt bad. He needs therapy. We probably all do. Proud of myself for the way I handled it. I gave Sadie some love and carrots. Loved on my cats and Scruffy, too. He wasn't in the line of fire, but heard it. Trusting God. I have to. Love my home. It's a blessing. Praying for tomorrow. Thank you for being there. Love and a vote. <3

Monday vote for you. Finished up in Wausau in good time. Farm & Fleet of course took the longest. Wonder why?? Did not get any thing other than critter feed, and a few things for cleaning....I thing I heard about Fall cleaning once. Thought I would give it a try, to see if I remember how to do it.

I did not have any trouble "yet" with HC, but I remember last yr, it was like nearly a month without being to beable to log on. Woke up to rain this morning, so did all the chores in the rain, and then it stops. Mike has to put in a large round bale now, and then it starts again...so we wait. Tomorrow, he has VA appointment, in Wausau, so we will have to leave early to get there by 8, for labs, but his appointment is not until 10. Everyone, pigs, dogs, cats, chickens, g.hens, horses, g.pig,hamsters, fish, have given me their list...some of it I can not make out, but I am sure it is food or treats, or both. I better bring more than my 3 dollar allowance....(Joke between Mike and me and the girls at the Connection Store, like GoodWill or St. Vinny's)

Saturday was a long work day. I'm only working weekends, for now, because work is slow, so Saturday was a blessing. Need to pick up some Freedom 45. The flies are awful. I feel bad for Tracy's burros. They're so wild, she can't do anything but feed and water them. Too wild to get close enough to to treat for flies. They'll come up to her for the animal crackers she buys them, but for nothing else. Glad Sadie's sociable. I'd be hurt if she didn't allow me to do things for her. She's such a brat but a good girl, too. She thinks a conversation is suppose to include her. Leaving lots of love and a vote from us.

Still raining on and off, lots of flood warnings out, but mostly to in the southern part of Wis. Trees are putting on their colorful leaves, and winds are really getting stronger, so they may not last long. October is the the big month for color, but we have had snow already in September, (not this yr yet).
We are starting to cut firewood, nothing major, because had to fix the chainsaw. Rain I enjoy, but hate the mud, clay mud is sticky and deep, so far, its been not too bad. We are waiting for it to dry out, so far has not happened all summer. Want to push dirty up against the barn to plug up some holes at the base of the cement blocks. Have some projects, like change the side door in the Menard shed, where the young birds are, plus hay, and hopefully a pen for ????

I've kept my Manna Pro fly spray in my hay shed. I've had it for so long, summer heat, etc., I didn't think it would work, but When I sprayed Sadie with it, Monday, the fart'n flies went away. My friend, Tracy, has 2 burros that she adopted. They're wild. When I visited Saturday, the flies were attacking their eyes. So sad. She can't get near them to put on spray or fly masks. After Star went blind in both eyes from glaucoma, I'm careful to keep Sadie's protected with her fly mask. Tracy seems to have more flies at her place than I do. Going to leave lots of love and a vote.

Yes, still canning. Finish the last two batches last night instead of this morning. Have lots of tomatoes still in the garden, and have not checked the squash patches tooo many of them, along with the pumpkins. But I see some orange peeking threw the leaves. Along with the orange and red in the trees, fall is coming, with these cool nights and winds. Started getting firewood, already, but just here and there. We need a new chainsaw, so working on that too. Baby pigs have been separated from Moms, and do not want to breed either of these sows again, since they were not the best Moms nor producers. Should have gotten at least 7-8 baies from each, but more like 10-12 each, but thankful for the 6 we do have.

Busy trying to play catch up, neighbor stopped over yesterday morning, just as we were to leave to pick up Mikey's pills and take Dominic home. She always has so much to tall about....she the reason we do not need a newspaper.... :). She knows all the news. So her 2 hour visit puts me behind all day. He had to leave early to dress Mikey's toes/foot, before we went to Mass. How I have a double batch of tomotoes/celery/chili based which did not get into jars...yet. Will can it tomorrow, but want to get everything ready today. Did most of the work last night, but Sunday I don't do work that can wait. God must have made this day for me to rest, so I try to just pretend I am resting.
Heard from Eric and he said the ponies are enjoying all the extra attention and kids really love them. I knew he had a incubator and wanted guineas too, so I collected eggs for him, and he said his wife had set them already. She was so excited to get them....maybe more than the ponies, but I don't think so.

What a great Vegas trip! Austin fell in love with The Hard Rock Cafe and Casino. No gambling, but was so excited about the displays. We had his birthday dinner at The HR Cafe, and he was introduce, by our server, to the patrons who sang Happy Birthday to him. It was a blessing to see him so excited. We went to Planet Hollywood, Bally's, The Flamingo and Caesar's Palace as well as The Hard Rock. Went by fast, of course. We got home around 7 pm tonight. I picked up a shift at work for Sunday. Back to the grind. Scruffy was happy to see us, my cats excited to go outside and Sadie acted like I hadn't left. Much to do. Love and a very blessed Saturday night vote. <3

Not sure about the sale today....want to go, but anytime I take a day off, the fairies seem to take one too. Yesterday, I noticed the spiders started decorating for Halloween, spider webs in every room. The dust bunnies came out and really multiply, and Sadies's mess under the table got bigger. She seems to think, all cardboard boxes need to be tore into 1 inch x 1 inches or smaller.
Ponies did wonderful getting into the trailer, but I felt like a "Judes goat" leading them in. But their new home is so nice. They will have their own stalls, but for now the have a small pen, which will go into a bigger pasture, and 3 kids to love them. I brought everything I could think of that they might need, treats, apples, carrots, brushes, combs, extra halters, 3 new lead ropes, hoof pick, a few stuffed horses, books on ponies, and a few other horsey things. They showed us the other barn, where they had ducks and chickens, everything was so clean, and no mud. I think the ponies will love it there. But Mistit is still calling for them. So that part is so sad for me. I spent extra time with her last night after we got home.

I guess I love all my horses and ponies toooooo much, because them having a new home is more important than making money off them. I very seldom, sell for money, this time I am doing a trade(s) for rifle/gun. I have seen the little hobby farm, and can see the love the father has built into his barn and how he treats his other animals.
I take in horses/ponies that need a home, because they in need of help. Usually, they are just babies, and just are not taught anything, afraid and not handled. After, I work with them, and make them ready for their new home, I start looking for someone who wants what they have to give. Pickles, I really thought I would want to keep, but he turned out better than what I thought he could.
Mike has to rewire the horse trailer, since the little pigs, would play under it, and must have created a short. Trouble is, with his artificial knees, he can not get down on the ground....well, he can, but then can not get back up. Waiting for the neighbor boy to come over and help him out.

It seems so long ago since I wrote everyone...yep, like yesterday!! But so much has happened. First I posted a few pictures of Sadie, Dominic's new puppy. Look under Paisley's page. 3-4 mts old, half Lab, and half ?? I think boxer, wide shoulders and ears are pointed not like a lab. My broom has to work overtime, to swept the kitchen where she spends alot of time, chewing up boxes, newspapers, egg cartoons, toys, and my plastic flowers...and anything else she finds.
Next, I found someone who needs a mini, well not just a mini he wants 3 of them for his kids, and there are 3 kids. He grew up with ponies and so did his wife, and they want their young ones to have that same experience. I only wanted to sell the two Clippers and Paisley, because Pickles needs more. It was so rewarding to me, for each step I took with him, and I had to really work for each reward. But I feel he is ready now to have his own kid. It's sad for me, but at the same time I am happy for Pickles, Paisley, and Clippers.

We have cool temps and of course raining on and off. No dryer, so I have been hanging out and quickly bring in the clothes on the line. I have a wooden rack to hang things on in the house.
Have news of a pup, that needs a home, like yesterday, so might have new on it tomorrow. All I know its Mom is a silver lab, father unknown. This will be her 4th home, if I can find away to sneak her in....maybe send Mike on a road trip, and then tell him this dog mysterious appeared with Dominic's name on her....I get really good at making up stories, mostly unbelievable. But they work!!

Heavy rain this morning from Hurricane Newton. Humid, y'all. Had Sadie out for a few hours. Austin went outside with her, eating chocolate chip cookies. She realized it and chased him. It was so funny to watch. She ate a couple. Hoping that's not a no no. It's several hours later, and she's doing fine. Love and a vote.

Rained most of the day, sometimes really poured, horses stayed in the shed, because if they stepped out, its pure mud about a foot deep, other door way is worst. It was about 4-5 inches of rain in the buckets which were empty. It's raining out now, but not hard, just enough to get stuff wet. Mike is off to Eau Claire again for Tristan, but my brother in law, was forced...like talked in to forced to go along. Keep Mike company. Hopefully, I can get more canning done. Did 2 batches of tomatoes yesterday afternoon. That's 14 qts, of like strew tomatoes. Also did a batch of salsa, and one of green tomatoes relish, but these are still draining off the juice, and I will add the vinegar and salt, sugar, spices cook them and then put them into jars and can them. Guess what...there will be more in a day or so.

As I type, I hope you can hear Mother Nature being a naughty, naughty lady. BIG LOUD thunders, and what a fireworks display...never mind the down pour. My tulips, I planted where I took out the turtle pond "really" are getting the soaking they needed....might decide to bloom before winter. It started before 4 this morning and suppose to continue all week, I hope not this hard. Let everyone one just as it got light, because the rain had stopped. I guess chickens knew more than I did, because they just stayed in the coop, and the ones in the shed did not want to go outside either. Had a good visit with my sister at Mom's, she comes for the Hawkins parade each yr, by herself, and picks up my other sister, who hates to drive because she lost her one eye at 8 yrs old. Up until last yr she had a fake eye, but because of a infection it ate up some of the support of the fake eye, and now has to wait until everything clears up. That and her insurance does not want to pay anything, because the only place she can go is out of network. My sister will take 5 of the baby guinea hens to a friend who wanted some, and I told him I would make sure he got them. I gave him eggs to incubate, but he said he did not know what went wrong, but each time you try a hatch, you learn new things not to do or to do, that you did before. Hey, it stopped storming for a few minutes....yep, I see ponies coming out of the barn.

Went to pick up a new front door from Menard's Labor Day special. Another long ride, over hour ride, to nearest store, long ride after we went 50 miles the other way to Tomahawk for a cookot. Really, Mikey needed one, and we went along and decided to get one also. I "think" we were invited because we have the credit card... :), he has a very hard time being on disability, so we do not mind. Now the front door we have (no window) will go to the back door, and the back door, will go out in the shed, which is my barn. Playing musical doors in a few days. And the shed door, will be used for a baby pig pen, turn sideways. Nothing gets wasted her, I try to recycle everything I can. Dominic loves to call it "Hording" but I have a use for nearly everything. I like to work on my projects with me, and getting very good at taking things apart and painting it or use it for another project. He turned my bookshelf, into a chicken nest with dividers. He is taking a shop class this year, and tells me about all the things he wants to make, so I hope he keeps that mind going, because he is miles ahead of other kids his age.

Weather is feeling more like fall, a few nights with 35, but usually in the 40's. Got home from Mass yesterday afternoon, and not one horse...pony...of steer were in the field. Took a bit to find them, got all the horses in first, and then tracked down the steers and new heifer in or at the edge of the neighbors corn field. Finally got everyone in, and it was getting dark. I guess all that walking and running made me tired because I slept until 7 this morning.
