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!

Have to play catch up again. No internet this morning due to the storm. Calling for up to 20 inches but Mother Nature is getting a bit lazy, well or at least not aggressive yet. Only have about 5-6 inches. Mikey has dr. appointment today at 1, so hopefully he can make it. 100 miles 1 way. He has 4 wheel drive, he can not drive himself, being legally blind, but his friend took off 1/2 day from work to help him out. Schools are all called off, not so much because of the snow, but blizzard condition with winds. Could not finish leaving comments yesterday, but most everyone at east received a vote. Had to run get neighbor his pills at Ladysmith, then after dinner, went to pick up sawdust for bedding, to make sure everyone will stay dry. 12 bags (100 # feed bags) will go a long ways, then bedding gets recycled in the spring on the fields....animals are fertilizer factories.

Rained all day yesterday, my one jacket is still wet, so I wear the longer one. Hardly any snow left, but Mother Nature is making "Big" plans for Friday, 10-12 inches. Water is not soaking in because of the frozen ground. Gong to get more fed today, to make sure we have enough if we can not get out this weekend.

Oh, Mother Nature can be so "sweet" when she wants to. Hit 52 yesterday and same should be today. Not sure what is going on in her mind, but sure is nice. Horses seem like they want to start shedding, rolling a lot on the crusty snow. So easy, to feed, when you are not fighting the wind and cold. I can remember some February that temps were down to 50 below, (with winds) instead of above. Chickens, cats,and cattle, just love this warmer weather, they like sleeping in the sun. Horses keep watching the woods, I do see the deer and wild turkeys out in the pastures. Once, in awhile see they turkeys walking right in the barn pastures, looking for left over corn that someone missed.

I found the best time, I can sleep, is in Church,...:). I wake up nearly every night around 3:20, last night it was even earlier. Then I can not go back to sleep. Usually, we are up by 5:30-6, dogs want to go out. I am a very light sleeper, and I can hear Sadie, moving around in her "room". I have a very active mind, that keeps me thinking even when I am sleeping.
I hope you are sitting down, when I tell you the temperature got up to 50...I heard 52, but 50 in Feb. is like hitting the jackpot. But sure made the driveway slippery, with melting over the ice. But I no longer can walk on top of the snow, which is still about 18inches. Bare spots around the trees, and the house.

The same storm that's hitting California, is headed my way. Even though I'm east of California, the heavy wind is coming from the East. Hoping the rain won't be too heavy. Roads and highways have a tendency to flood. Will have to drive extra careful. Long work weekend. Thanks for the votes. Love and a return vote.

Working Thursday through Sunday. Came home from work, Thursday night, and mopped, then started a load of laundry. Scruffy's gotten so skinny. I feed him twice a day. Started him on wormer, last night. He's so active. Hard to believe he'll be 11 in August. Talks a lot, too. Lol. Leaving lots of love and a vote.

Quick votes, have to put in 3 large bales of hay and do some other jobs outside. Putting the charger on the truck to start it. Going to get some feed today, don't really need it, but Mike wants to run the truck a bit....feed run is always good.

Monday morning vote. Very nice outside, beautiful sunrise.
Our winds were very strong yesterday, even if the temps were in the high 20's, it was so cold. Today so far it's sunny, but only 12 this morning. Chicken have to stay in for a bit. They have lots of windows in their coop, sliders close to the ground double as doors in the summer. But sun comes in right there, and it is also where I put the ashes and sand so they can dust their feathers.

Frozen fingers for sure this morning. Yesterday seen a stray cat outside. Dark gray with white patch on it's chest, limping very badly, walking on 3 legs. I knew there was one around, because my outdoor cats stay in the barn at night, (usually daytime too), and I seen tracks in the new snow. So I set dry cat food under the outdoor stove, in the garage, and tractor shed. After seen it, I tracked it back to the tractor shed, and left a pail of meat scraps, and dry food. At least I know where it is staying so will make a hut with blankets for it. Winter can be very cruel on strays so I try to help them out. Mike is taking my brother -in-law for eye appointment so I sent a list, cat, dog, horse, and chick strater food plus treats.

Just got back. Hated to leave Mom, but she's doing well. Parkinson's Disease affects emotions. Maybe, with losing her husband, that's a good thing. She says she's sure going to miss him. I know she already does. It was a nice visit even though it was for a sad reason. The funeral was Saturday. Thanks for thinking of us. I took my laptop to vote, but forgot my charger, so my laptop stayed dead. Sissy started crying when she saw me. My cats were happy to see me. Scruffy met me when we drove in. And Sadie? When I let her out of the corral, She ran and ran, then allowed me to love on her, oh, and allowed me to feed her. Lol. Tired. Long day. Love and a vote.

Found the rooster, Mr. Roo outside this morning. I guess my count was off by 1 last night. But I gave them all my memorized speech about coming back in "on time" yesterday morning, before they were let out. He had to spend the night cuddled up next to Jack and Harry. Serves him right!!
Cold but sunny vote from Wisconsin. Should be lows tonight and tomorrow way below zero, but warming up to 30's by the weekend. Hope so.

Last 2 days Mother Nature is being sweet, but (there is always payback with her), today it was calling for snow, now its rain, which is never good over all that ice and snow. Then by Thursday back to way below zero.
My chicken got to go out to play today, but not the guinea hens, sometimes they do not have the sense to go back in at dark...then want to roost in the trees, and get picked off by owls and nighthawks.
Deer, wild turkeys, or something must be moving around on the edge of the woods, because Willow and Whisper are being very alert, and watching. Can not wait until it gets warmer, to ride again.

Yep, inside its still chilly, specially when you send us that Southern wind. Plus last night it snowed, just a few inches, but enough for me to have make new paths to the pig pens, and across the lawn to the barn. Sadie thinks all this snow is just great, and she is so funny to watch. Today she found a stick, way bigger than she is, tried to bring it to me to throw, but she forgets to drop it, and when she finally did, it was almost to heavy to throw more than 15 ft. Trys to bring another one of her treasures into the house, but would not fit in length wise in the door way.

Cold this morning with winds, at 6 when we got up it was -7, then dropped a bit when the sun woke up. Should be getting warmer to about 10-12, but the sun is bright, so Mr. Ground Hog seen his shadow, and now we will have 6 more weeks of winter, but looking on the bright side, if he had not seen his shadow, we would still have 6 weeks of winter. Ha Ha!!
Doing more cleaning today, seeing if I can find the nest of dust bunnies. They multiply so fast!!
Should be cleaning saddles to sell, but that is a job I have to do from start to finish, and not a bit here and a bit there.

Winds were so bad here, and then with temps a bit above zero, it was cold. House was cold too, south winds again.
Snowed about 3-5 inches, but the wind buried all my trails, but the snow is so hard so I am walking on top of it.

It seems most "horse people" never have enough funds....we have a very expense friends, and most of them have 4 legs,manes and tails. :)
Been a very busy day, left at 7 this morning, before chorses to take Shadow, our Golden Retriever, and my sister's little dog, Chance for rabies shots at the vet, did chores, then caught 2 roosters to delivery them, received a couple of pounds of bacon in trade. Would have just given the roosters, who are closely related to my hens, but I like bartering. Doing chores earlier tonight, have to pick up Dominic, go to Church and then spend the evening playing Bingo with my brothers and sisters, and they all cheat....but fun. Always get lots of "one of a kind" prizes. Mike is heading to Milwaukee in a bit to go to a funeral.

Didn't ask Mikey how appointments went, I was outside when they came home just about dark. I knew they were here, (Mike went to drop him off at his house), because on the floor were 3 bags of cat litter, one bag of cat food, and a block of salt.
I wish there was a Farm store closer than 100 miles one way. Closest store is a Walmart, local feed stores, grocery, and gas stations. Lots of small specialty stores.

Hope this weather straightens it self out or Mother Nature needs a long talking to. Wind and cold this morning, but temps are not that bad...24-25 now. Well, at least it is above 0. Mike has to take Mikey to Wausau this morning for appointments, mostly to check blood flow in his leg. He had to have the veins opened up last summer, because for yrs his legs was always cold feeling, and he had no feelings in his feet. I know I wrote about how the 10 inch cut kept bleeding, and then we found out he was never taken off his blood thinner.

So much is going on. My step dad is dying, on standby, waiting to hear, so I can get a plane ticket to Georgia to be with my mom. Rick wrecked Austin's car, Thursday night. It's in the shop. Should be fixed in a week. Just got my car out of the shop. Battling a cold and a neighborhood cat strayed into the backyard. Yes, Sissy killed it. Don't know whose it was. Austin took her over to the cat and let her know she was bad. I know it didn't do any good. Rick's the only reason I haven't dropped her off at the pound. Love to all and a vote.
