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.

I am also tired of Mistit, keeping her baby to herself. I have read up on all the signs, some I see, like the "A" shaped looking down at her belly, it is pulling downwards, to look like a pear, her muscles near her hips are not soft yet, now does she like me to move he tail straight upward....it should be loose feeling. Her bag does not seem hard enough yet, although, some horses do not bag up with milk until the last minute or second. I am going by what cows do, and what I have read. Not experience. I am tired because I check her at around 11-12 each night, get up in the middle of the night to go out there, then early morning, and by it is time to "really" get up, I sure can sleep good. :)

It was suppose to be 120*, Monday, but only made it up to 116*. Cooling down to 112* and then, 110* later in the week. Suppose to be around 110* for the next 2 weeks. The air is hot. Thankful it's not humid, yet. Love to each of you and a vote.

So sorry I haven't been on. HC was down, then I had long shifts at work, making it impossible to vote. The wind was so hot when I got off work, Sunday night, my eyes burned. I came home, watered some of my trees, filled Sadie's water and splashed her butt with the hose. I got a dirty look, lol. What a brat. She's doing well, drinking lots of water. Thankful the heat doesn't seem to bother her. I started her on psyllium pellets, again. I mixed them with carrots and apples. She'd eat them without a treat, but I love to spoil her. And yes, I pay for it. Lol. Love and a vote.

Not looking forward to the predicted 120* on Sunday, and it's not even summertime, yet. It's usually hotter here than in Phoenix. Keeping Sadie's water filled, as usual. She knows how to wet herself down when the temperature's from Hell hit. We have beautiful winters that make up for it. Lots of love and a vote.

Many, many "moons" ago, when my hubby drank beer, he went out and came home with 7 goats...a story he never lives down. hee hee. Well, he gets gout from beer, so does not drink anymore, but he sure remembers those goats. They were not nice goats at all, no matter how high we made the pen, they would get out. Finally, after 3 years, sold all the babies to one guy, traded 4 goats for a 2 calves, Nixon and Nero, and traded all the rest for hay, so we did OK, but I did say, I would never want another goat, but Blizzard and Zero were nice, just did not fit in with pones that were afraid of them. It was hard at feeding time, because they wanted everything, they would run from chicken pens, to the pigs, to each horse pan, or where ever I heard me with the bucket. It was fun, another lesson learned, the hard way...again.

Sold my 2 goats yesterday, I think it was the right choice. It was getting harder to keep them away from chicken corn, and they would follow me around while doing chores....I think it was just to watch me, to know where I put all that corn. I found them in the chicken coop eating their feed, and even when I hid the guinea's feed pan in the dog house in their pen, they found it. But now they will be a little girl's birthday present. Hubby is still grinning ear to ear....:). If only the Pickles and Paisley were not so afraid of them. I was more afraid that the two goats would get hurt from one of the minis. No baby yet.....I think Mistit changed her mind.

Scruffy's doing great. He was so good at the Vet's. Had to say hello to everyone there. The vet's assistant was surprised when I told her his 10th birthday is in August. She thought he was 2. She said he's in great shape. He's an over aged puppy. Lol. Sadie 's pretty, nosy butt's doing well, too.... Busy work weekend, again. Longer hours next weekend. Will vote when I can. Love you all and a vote.

Yes, we had light frost yesterday morning. We have had frost in nearly ever month, once on the 4th of July, we had to leave the park early to go cover the garden, and sit with blankets on us, as we watched the local parade. No, baby yet. A week ago, the vet said it would be at least a week to 10 days yet. The former owner, was so positive on her breeding dates. It was in July, that Mistit hurt her stifle joint. She does not seem uncomfortable, but sometimes I see her tail switching back and forth, or looking at her belly. Yesterday, she was rolling a few times. Pickles, now is a different story. He did not seem sore after the second or third day. But, he is back to being "catch me if you can" attitude. Today, I put him in the pen, and lead him back and forth to the pasture, of course he wants to run, but I zig zag back and forth, to make him slow down, but then here comes the goats, under the fence,running straight to us, and Pickles took off. Well, another bad habit I just taught him.

The mini flood in the living room was caused by the hubby, who was playing weatherman, again. Sure hope he does not take it up as a living. Same guy, who said was not going to freeze last night. Good thing I covered tomato plants, there was frost this morning, frost but no baby.
Ponies staying in at night so they can lay where it is dry and warm, sure is making a messy in the back of shed. This morning, "someone" decided to empty the barrel of empty feed bags, pull down another bale of hay, tip over water buckets, and I am sure they tried to let the rooster out of the rabbit hutch.

Both colts are feeling better, I gave each one a bute tablet in the morning. Have to dissolve it in warm water, and mix a bit of sugar with it. When I talk to them, both have that innocent look in their eyes, which are very kind expressive eyes. Like who me!! I did not do that. I have to find the time to make up a page just for them, instead of having so many. Been raining like cats and dogs here, high winds yesterday, now it cool today. Hopefully, I can get some inside work done. Garden needs replanting and weeding, but with all this rain, can not even tiller. Did hand pulling weeds around the tiny carrots and beets, beans and peas are one here, and 6 ft away the second one. Once we can till, I will transplant whats there. Today is grandson, Tristan's, first day at collage for linesman school, of course flat tire, so GrPa is going down to help him out, about hour and a half one way. Well, have to go, I hear the goats calling me.

Lol, cooling down to 111*, today. Bought a small tarp to put on one of the walls of Sadie's shade to block some of the hot sun, until I can get some more material to finish it. Trying to figure out how to put it up and hoping she won't rip it down. Lots of love and a vote.

I keep Mistit in the pen inside each night, and because Clippers, and Pickles got gelded, and of course rain ever since Thursday, they got to stay in the back of the barn where the hay is.....and this morning it is a MESS....big time. They somehow got one of the totes open, threw everything around, mostly unfinished craft items, which I work on in "spare time". Plus went into the barrel whee I keep empty feed bags, and it looks like they had fun with that, by the looks of 50 white bags all over. Pulled down all the halters and lead ropes, and told me what they think of them, by pooping on them. When I ask who made the mess....both boys just looked at Paisley, and told me they were too sore to even think of helping her. Neither were limping, but did not want me to look by moving their tails to the side. Just feed me was their attitude. Kids!!!

116* Saturday. When I got off work after 11 pm., the air was still hot. Keeping Sadie's water trough filled. Good the heat doesn't seem to bother her. Scruffy's enjoying his ac. Austin's planning to keep his coat short, too. Have a beautiful Sunday. Love and a vote.

Not looking forward to the heat, this weekend. It's predicted to be 115* on Saturday, now. It's not considered hot, here, until it gets over 105*. I think it's hot before, then. Staying as cool as possible. Love and a vote.

Under a heat warning this weekend. 117* predicted for Saturday. Sadie's going to wish she hadn't ripped down both misters. What a brat. At least, we have the wall up for shade and she has lots of water. She knows how to fill her mouth with water and spit it on her back. Lots of love, always and a vote.

Hope your weekend was great for everyone. Going to rain again today, so have to hurry and pick up my Mom grass clippings for bedding. Once it gets wet, it will mold. I guess, I recyle everything. Guineas and pheasant hatched out...not too good of a rate on the guineas. 15 out 36 eggs, but these were the first of the season, most were being lain when there was snow on the ground.

Baby watch is still on. I though with all the storm weather we are having it would be born, probably today, when we run to a small family doings, when I am not here to watch or help. Skys are very dark with rolling clouds last night, lots of thunder and lighting, but not much rain.

Monitoring Scruffy. He hates the cone. Getting harder to trick him into taking his medication. Guess he's figured out it's hidden in his food. Sadie got out. Austin accidentally left the gate open. Had to go to a neighbor's, in the dark, to get her. She went to visit their horse. We got her home, safely. She was such a butt. She and the other horse whinnied back and forth. It was sad. They both are alone. I think Sadie's missing Scruffy now that he's staying inside. She's good, though, bad but good. Lol. Leaving more love and a vote.

I sort of not looking forward today, because I know I will have to help. I don't want the two colts to think I caused the pain. I have given them the anti-tetanus shots already. And have penicillin ready, along with blood stopper, and other things we need. Now it is calling for rain, and I know they have to move. No baby yet, but looks a little sunk in at her tail head, bag is not rock hard, so maybe a few more days.

My goodness. I need to make it on HC more often. Scruffy's doing better. I took him out, last night, to potty. Took the cone off and was surprised to see how much better he did without it. He walked some and wagged his tail. If I would live by his example, find time to wag my tail during rough spells, I'd be a better person. Animals are inspirational. Leaving lots of love and a vote. <3
