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.

Sadie escaped from the fly mask. I put Freedom 45 on her, today. She followed me around like a puppy. I cleaned out her water trough and filled it. In the 90's. It was hot. Love and a vote.

Got home from work, Saturday night, went out to check on Sadie and give her a snack, like I always do, and found her wearing her fly mask sideways. She fought me, but I straightened it out. All she cared about was the snack. Lots of love and a Sunday vote.

Rainy and damp, but no snow or winds. That I can live with. However, it will be in the 20's or below this weekend. Mother nature can't make up her mind. Other then that all is quiet. Have a good day Vicki & Big Jax

Raining. Finally dried up enough from the last rain to put Miss Sassy Thang back in the corral, now it's raining, again. She's drenched. I sat on the back steps, feeding her huge carrots, while her mane dripped from the rain. It can stop, now. Suppose to be in the 80's by the middle of the week. Battling laryngitis. Need a little break. Maybe sitting on the beach while being waited on? Sounds good. Lol. I see our Horse Stables are now empty. Sad. Leaving love and hoping this vote takes.

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.

I was only able to vote for a few profiles, Tuesday morning, before HC stopped responding, not allowing me to finish my voting. Thinking of you all. Weather's nice. Sadie's good. Started her monthly Psyllium pellets this week. Hope all is well. Love and a vote.

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.
