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.

How is Blue doing now, I must admit, I did not have time to read all the comments the last few days. So perhaps, you already mentioned it. Everyday, seems like I fall behind on something. It must be the rain, and everything all wet, weeds grow so fast, well, faster than I can pull them.

I took Sadie's temperature twice. 98.5. I gave her 2 Pepto Bismol tablets. She ate them like candy and wanted more. Yuck. Thankful that she's doing better. Lots of love and a vote.

Have to rush again this morning. Someone coming around 11 to buy some chicks and a few keets. Hope its enough to buy feed next week. Temps were in the 40's yesterday and very breezey, but good weather for fixing fence. Mike did most of it, while I make another pen for guineas keets...time to move them out of big rabbit cage. Willow finally got to go in with whisper, as ponies and all went into the hay field, now they have 10 acres to run and run they did, of course Willow limped most of the time after, but so good to hear the "thunder of hooves" even if they were little beats.

Here it is Monday...outside it is cool, and so much moist in the grass that I left trails everywhere.....just like a snail. Mike is out working on the fence around the hayfield, so soon everyone can go out there, and we can start redoing areas of their pastures....too many weeds.

Sadie's had diarrhea since Saturday. She's eating good and drinking her water. No change in her diet. I'm thinking maybe it's because the weather's been weird. Any ideas? Thanks. Love and a vote.

Raining again, and very cool. I have a sweatshirt on, (and all the windows open), plan on making banana bread, and oatmeal cookies, plus put something in the oven for supper. Looking out in the rain, I think of all the things I could be doing or plan to do. I will be working out in the shed, moving the turtle cage in for the keets, as soon as the rain stops. Mike is looking for stuff to do, before its time for Mass this afternoon. I like going to Church for Mass then, instead of Sunday morning.

Sure was wrong about yesterdays temp, it was hot or maybe just because I was trying to get things done outside. Today it is raining, and should rain on and off all weekend. Maybe...that's a hint of maybe, I will get some house cleaning done. Dishes count for cleaning....maybe I will just leave the cobwebs up until Halloween...if stores can be putting out Christmas decoration early, I will just have to start early for Halloween. Actually, started a few fall projects already. Where the turtle pond was, I am filling that deep hole with veggie scraps and lawn grass that I missed when feeding the grass clippings to the pigs, chicks, and baby guineas....they think its candy, or act like it, when I sprinkle it on the floors. I have saved totes of very dry grass clipping for the winter to line the floors of chicken pens and nest. But I want to plant tulips and fall bulbs in the hole, then put a more flowers over the top....but I can not spell the flower./// I can see what I want in my head....hee, hee.

Not the first time that Sadie's turned on the water. I'm sure it won't be the last time, either. If she thinks about it, she'll do it, again. The only way to keep her from it is to keep her put up. I let her out to get some exercise. She's too sociable to stay in the corral all the time. She amuses me. Love and a it's raining vote.

Dominic my grandson is here again. If he did not have sports at school, I am sure he would live here. Been working on some craft type things, mainly a wooden board, which he stained, and then drew some drew deer heads he wanted to paint on, but I helped him transfer his ideas on to thin wood, and I cut them out on the skill band saw. I am glad he did not make it into a "30 point buck", like the song they play in deer hunting season. Plan on cleaning out the rabbit cages and chop down more burrdock, my two piles are really big, and my hands are just as sore. Never seem to remember to wear gloves.

Let Sadie out to stretch her legs and get some exercise. She turned on the hose and made herself a lake to play in. She loved it and blew bubbles while wading in it. Brat! She's too dang smart. Oh well, I don't have to water that tree, now. Lol. Lots of love and a vote.

I turned on the sprinkler for Sadie, Monday. She backed that big butt up to it, then laid down and rolled. Scruffy always gets happy when he sees her do that. He ran up to her behind, barking. He ran away from her when she let out a loud fart. Still laughing. Wish I had a video of it. Leaving lots of love and a vote.

Awe Monday, not sure what to do first. Chores are done, need to move the white guineas into the other pen, (getting ready for winter, UGH!!) but they need time to adjust to a different pen and house. After both little dogs went home, I need to wash all their blankets and pads, so they are ready when those little guys return. My cats miss them already. Tomatoes are finally getting ripe, and more cockburrs need chopping down....some of them I feel like hollowing "TIMBER" when they fall. Finish moving the turtle pen into the barn for the baby keets too. Mike has taken Mikey to another dr appointment for his toe, the big sores are infected, even if the drs at Ladysmith say it looks good, I say it needs a "real" doctor to look at it, because it is infected. That's why no one likes going the the Ladysmith Hospital, when a sore has pus, smells, and red....that is what is called infection and needs to be treated.....a patient should not have to beg to get some sort of antibiotics for it.

Some good new on Mistit...her milk is now yellow, before it was just white coloring. Still keep her separated at night, just incase. Rainy again today, but not a all day rain, but enough to make everything sticky and humidity sort of bad. Try to chop down "cock-bur or burdock" this morning, and some are getting like little trees. Like to do them just before they seed out, it is like a small ball of sticky seeds which get in the horses manes and tails, and nearly impossible to get out.

Long day yesterday, got home at 9, still light enough to do chores, and put the steer back in. Fun to see the grandkids Camille and Rich and their dog Lucy, who sang, (howled) happy birthday song. Rain here at our house most of the day. Now, everything is wet outside, and sticky inside from humidity. One day away, and I am sure the weeds, and squash took over more of the garden. With all the rain, everything is really growing tall.

So thankful for Sadie's shade. She is, too. I've got a small wall on the west side, about 6 feet wide. Going to wall up the north side when the the weather cools down. Don't know if Sadie uses the wall to block the blowing sand. She uses the shade when the sun is hot and when it rains. Plays in her water trough to cool down. The fly mask protects her eyes from flies and blowing dust and sand. She's use to the weather, no matter how crazy it gets. Leaving lots of love and a vote.

Monsoon season. Large dust storm hit the Phoenix area, yesterday. Horrible winds were slamming into the house around noon, shaking it. Thanking Jesus for not losing power. Tucson was flooded from the heavy rains. I had to work a short shift, last night. Hard rain hit here before I got home, and flooded the highway below my house. And yes, it's miserably humid, now, but thankful for the rain. Also, thankful for Sadie's larger corral. The east end flooded, but the west was good. Sadie's good, too. Horses are rugged animals. They can survive so much worse. All she seemed to care about was food. I let her out, waded through puddles to the hay shed, and gave her a flake of hay. She had her carrots and apples, too. Her new salt brick melted. Need to buy 2 at a time, just in case. Love and a muggy vote. <3

Today the humidity is so bad, that we have fog and mositure on everything....like raining inside.
Well, Mistit's due date certainly is a mystery....she nearly is past the last due date, first week in Aug, next one will be near the end of Aug. It's been a long baby watch for all of us. I keep checking to see if she has milk, which she does

Good Sunday Morning vote.
Willow seems to enjoy being here. Gets along of attention, everyday, I put her halter on, give her a treat, ride her a bit in the pen. She was a kids horses I am sure, likes to walk 10 ft, when I tell her to, then stop, wait until I tell her again, another 10 ft, stop wait. I can just see a kid riding her and continuously let her stop and eat. She is also hard to get her to come to me, when she see I have a halter. But does not run, just stays out of my reach. It is hard to work with her with all the little ponies right there, looking for their treat too. Or nibbling on my boots, to see if that is where I put their treat. There is no hiding them, because they smell so good....Apple and Peppermint. My pockets smell like them, even if I do not have any with me.

Busy Saturday, up at 5, and someone came to buy a few keets and the extra male guinea I had. Of course, she had to see the minis, because she has a mini donkey, and was planning on getting her a friend. She liked Paisley, and Clippers, so will be calling me back.

Finally have a few days in a row with no chance of rain, so cutting the new seeding today. Poured yesterday, nearly all morning. It had stopped for a bit, and I was moving some of the keets, baby guinea hens, out to a better rabbit cage in the shed, when it started up big time, so I was halfway across the lawn, and ran with the rabbit cages trying to protect them from getting wet. Ended up working out in the shed, until rain let back up. Found a box of headstalls, starting to mold, huh....not even done cleaning saddles, and having to work on the smaller leather things. Washed most of them in vineger water, because read (somewhere) it would kill mold spores, drying is slow, because of the moister in the air. Today, it is cool outside, should stay like that all weekend. About 62 right

I wrote before, about my flower beds, and will let everyone know, the only way to grow nice flowers, is to "beg, borrow, or steal" the seeds/bulbs. (But I only steal from Mother Nature). Always, said if I am going to steal, it better have 4 legs and a mane and tail, and be worth "hanging" for....and I have come very close to be hung. hee, hee...;)
Let month old chicks out of their pen in the shed this morning, had to plug up every hole under the overhead door, so they could not get outside. Only, because there are 42 of them, and they are so hard to count to bring back in at night. Right now, let them learn to come into the pen where I left there their food and water. Next to deal with the baby keets. Sold some, already, but have some to give to 4-H ers, and saving a few for myself....not sure why I do have enough. Sometimes, I just do not learn from my own mistakes.

My son's leg "finally" stopped leaking. They never took him off his warfin, so when he went in for his labs last Tuesday, the results should read 2 or 3, 7 means he is bleeding inside, well, his was "10". As soon as he stop taking the bloodthinner for 2 days his bleeding stopped and started healing up. I should have gave him "radiator "stop leak".
Trip to Bloomington, Mn was looooong, coming home took back roads so seen some different country. Got home around 9, still light enough to get chores done.
Took newly hatched keets out on incubator, I opened it slowly, and they started hopping out like "Popcorn", but best hatch ever for guinea hens, out of 40 eggs I have 31 babies....sadly no white ones, but lots of silver or gray ones. Too tired from riding, or as the saying goes...."Too pooped to Pop", to get much more done. I was hoping Mistit would have her foal, while I was not bothering her all day, checking for signs, but she and her fat little tummy were still there.

It's been humid and miserably hot. Then, a storm rolled through, Friday night, and knocked the power out, taking the water with it, since the water is powered by electricity. A very miserable 19 hours. I prayed hard. So thankful it's back on. Humbles you and makes you appreciate things even more. Sadie's good. Gave her her carrots and apples after work. Love is food. Lol.
