How We Met

I saw her last Aug 2011 at our Palomino Show and fell in love with her. Asked if she was for sale, she wasn't.
But came up for sale this springtime, I found her on the internet at a trainer's barn that I know and loved how she progressed in Western Pleasure. I just purchased her on May 29th 2012

Burr, it is raining hard since last night, at least no snow yet. I think the freezing part is tonight. Calves are doing good, no more runs, but the one with the swollen fetlock joint, I am still treating. I just wished I seen the cut or scrape a few days ago. It is on the inside of the joint, and looked just like a spot, since she has white legs with black spots up and down her legs. I washed and sprayed it last night, but with very little light it was hard to see what kind of job I did. As soon as Mike gets home, he can hold her still, so I can work.

Come visit me, Mistic, Willow & Whisper.

I can't imagine that you'll be any harder on your knee at the show than you are working around the farm. You stay awfully busy and on the go all the time, and it's done well, thank goodness.
So you'll go to a clinic with Marissa today? What kind of clinic? Sounds like a fun day hanging out with her. Do you leave for the show tomorrow?
Nothing much here. Hoping it's not too muddy to get on a horse today, but we'll see.
Have a great hump-day

MACKIE SETTLED IN VERY WELL..
It seemed like he had always been there, Sterl loved him and Jackie was a happy pony. Mackie was a nice ride, easy to rain, learned to canter very easily and we were starting little cross rail jumps. I guess what I noticed first, altho it was very subtle, he felt like he was unsure where to put his feet, and he stumbled a lot. I know, every horse will stumble, but this was a lot...first I had his farrier check him out, all good there. so it was a Dr. cook visit. After a physical exam and a neurological ground evaluation he drew blood to test for EPM...tomorrow's saga, we left a vote.

Sounds like you are getting already to go. I might have missed the day if you wrote it in the comments. Sometimes i send the votes out, then read your comments.
Beautiful day today. Did alot of jobs outside, let the baby calves out, but only one went outside and ran around. But because it was so nice today, tonight there are "winter weather warnings" out for snow, ice, and freezing rain, just north of us. Mother Nature is surely fickled.

BRAY OUT MACKIE IN...
If you go to Mackie's profile page you will find out about him. Basically I have to say, he was the Standardbred version of Charlie. Such a nice horse, his life was a struggle, I miss him everyday too. Sterl loved him and Jackie did not have to be protected. I put a bunch of his pics below. Life was good, for awhile.

The vaseline helps on Sissy's ears. I put some on Scruffy's nose, because the flies have been attacking him, too. In the 90's. Going to be turning on Scruffy's ac, soon, and hoping he and Sissy will be nice and share the doghouse. Need to build a new doghouse, too. but will patch this one for now. Love to all and a vote.

Goodness, you were busy with the weed whacker. I'm sure the boys hoped you were distracted and busy enough to forget about them in their oasture, lol.
So the show is this weekend? Can't believe we're sitting at the end of April, it just flew by! This'll be a busy week too, I guess, getting ready to go.
We had off and on rain yesterday so no riding (2.9 inches over sunday and monday!). I brought BJ up and trimmed his feet, but otherwise stayed pretty domestic- groceries, homeschool, throwing some stuff out.
Well, headed to work today. Hope you have a great tuesday

I enjoy going to sales, or clinic, just to be around horse people. Just to sit and watch, sometimes, I look to see if I can pick up reasons why the horses is at a sale. I noticed, that when things are wrong with their hooves, or gaits, they like to keep those legs moving. Also deep bedding or sawdust, can hide alot.
You sound like you have your horsemanship well under control.. When is the first showing??

We had a nice, but very windy day. Clothes dried in record time, hung big heavy rugs out, (Too heavy for the lines,) hung them over bench and picnic table. Little chicks have their new home well broke in, the found the ashes, which are in one corner, and made good use of dusting their feathers. Would like to think of moving out the younger ones, but we are suppose to get down to a low of around 23, snow and raining all this week. Highs are only around 39-43. I better remember where I put my mittens last. I still am wearing my winter boots, but I never knew they were this heavy, in the winter time.

Sounds like Paige and you are ready! Don't overdo it now before the show! It was really nice here yesterday too, so took time out late day for a ride on Rocky, along with my friend. Well, riding for me and Rocky I call, sitting on my moving couch! Blue & Shiva were along too and they love the barn.

Glad everything went so well and Paige is backing perfect half circles. Yes, Honey sounds amazing. Sure a different dog than when you got her. They have upgraded the light rain on Sat to TS. But that's still a few days away. Need to gas up the truck tomorrow and get the tires ck'd and inflated on the trailer.

Good girl to Honey for behaving in the house while you were gone. Bet she was a happy pup when you got home.
It got cold (for us) and rained most of the day yesterday and last night with a lot of wind. Brrrr, bring out the coats again. The horses were feeling their oats in the chilly wet weather, hence the action shots on their profiles. It had the opposite effect on me; I just wanted to nap, lol.
Well, hope your week gets off to a good start.

LET HIM GO...
Finally after 4 years of working and struggling with Bray, I decided that we just were not going to make it as a team. I started to hunt for a new horse for me and a great home for Bray. I settled on a young lady, she was likely an intermediate rider, BUT she would be boarding Bray at a large show barn, she had a coach and tons of support around her. I said my goodbyes. She kept me updated. She was enjoying him, however, three weeks after she got him, on a fresh slightly frosty morning he was turned out into his paddock, which was on a tiny bit of a slope. Apparently he was acting up, go figure...he took a bad step and they think he tore a patellar ligament (stife). No one noticed his problem until he was brought in that evening, on three legs. Long story short, after consultation with 3 Vets, his prognosis was poor to hopeless, she was advised to let him go. She called me to tell me the news and asked if I'd like to be there, she said he was more my horse than hers. I declined, but I did go to say good bye one last time. We left a vote today.

Sounds like you are ready to go. The cows are back, 5 cows, 1 bull, 4 calves. Nobody has been by looking for them. If they stick around, maybe will will try to shoo them into the pasture with heifers, maybe the bull can breed them.

Sorry, I did not get to everyone yesterday.
I did not get to go to the Horse sale, it is called "Central Wi Horse Sale" you can look it up. Have new owners now. I want to go, but I know I can not afford anything, even the gas to go down. So, Dominic and I cleaned out little room in the chicken coop, "tried" to figure out which of my month old chicks are hens and which ones were roosters. The word was tried. Hung light and made it nice, added sand, little perches, then put in 21 of the older chicks. Cleaned out the rabbit cage some of them were in. He helped me feed calves, but did not want to wash calf baby bottles and buckets. Then Mike took him to the show, and teased him he had a "hot date" meet him there. We took him to church with us and he can really sing good, and I told him I was kicked out of glee club, which he didn't know what that was. Singing club/class. When ever he is here, he gets the front seat because he says "Shotgun" first. Finally figured out what that was.

Gosh, the mock show and pot luck lunch sounds like it'll be so much fun today. Have fun.
Seems like you're getting a lot of rain. I guess if there's one time you really need it, it's in the spring.
A chiropracter is one of those people you like to find by word of mouth, not just picking one out of a list, so it makes finding one take longer. Guess I should get busy, lol.
The all breed fun show was a blast yesterday. The weather was great, no one got hurt or fell off, and there was a good turnout of both spectators and horses. The youth really love their fast horses and the speed events, that's for sure. And I met my first Missouri Fox Trotter in person. It was fun. We had a little rain last night so not sure I'll be able to ride today. If not, there are feet to trim and tomatoes to plant. Hope you have a great sunday.

I REALLY TRIED..
I HAVE BEEN E MAILING, I CAN'T UNDERSTAND WHY THEY ARE NOT GETTING THRU..I wanted it to work out with Bray, I sent him away for training, I had coaches come in, bottom line, the horse had my number and he knew I was afraid of him and he played it every time. I got to be NO FUN riding and riding is suppose to be fun. In the end, I decided that I really loved this horse, I just didn't like him much. David didn't like him from day one. What I didn't pick up on until much later was, Sterl May didn't trust him. Look at all the pictures of the three of them together, Sterl May is ALWAYS between Bray and Jackie. I should have listened to her...live and learn I guess, have a great day. we left a vote.

Wow, you had another busy productive day. Feels good to get things checked off the list, doesn't it?
Mo must have been covered in new smells when he came home, lol.
Yeah, I need to find a chiropracter, I guess. I feel like something is out of place, probably from that old lumpy bed, and I keep pulling that same area, which is a weird area to cause trouble, right in the middle of my back. Me and Aleve have gotten to be awfully good friends.
There are 3 Marsh Tacky events across the state today, which to my knowledge has never happened before and hopefully points to better days for the critically endangered breed. The one closest to me is an all breed fun show, so I'll be helping at that all day, should be fun.
Well, hope you have a great saturday.

THIS IS BRAY.....
Fast forward again, in this segment I have to say, I learned soooo much. We were all settled in and I wanted a horse to ride, so after some looking(not enough) I bought Brazen Virtue, a 3 yr old Standardbred Trotter. I admit now I bought him simply because he was handsome, wrong reason. As a 3 yr old he was a piece of cake but when he turned 5 he became "the Horse Devil" One fresh September morning I was feeding, Bray was full of himself and as I tossed out a couple flakes of hay, I was between him and Jackie, I reached for Jackie's halter to move him away from Bray, and all I remember is seeing his hind leg in the corner of my eye. It happened so fast. He caught me across the forehead, my glasses went flying and when I woke up I couldn't find them, I didn't know what had happened, I crawled to the barn and called David at home, I said, can you come and help me find my glasses? I fell and they are gone? He came right away and of course scooped me up and took me to the emergency room. He said I was in shock, and insisted that I fell, however I looked like something out of a Freddy Kruger movie... 17 stitches and a nasty concussion. They said a split second either way and I likely would have been dead. Take a look at the pictures below and tomorrow I'll tell you what I should have picked up on from the start, it would have saved a lot of trouble. We left a vote.

Mom said she must have slept wrong, and was laughing and joking when we were there, then went with my other sister to see Uncle Ray. It seems like you were just talking about getting the trailer ready for winter, now getting to undo everything. Finally, we had a day with no rain, bright and sunny, so did lots of little jobs outside. My grandson, Dominic is here tonight, he helped me feed calves, and empty feed into barrels.
Tomorrow is the last day of the spring Neilsville Horse Sale. 4 days long, first few are for draft horse machinery and tack, then the draft horses and mule, Saturday, riding horses and tack.

Not much here. I spent a lot of the day on the lawnmower yesterday, got some of the tomatoes planted (I only put in 5 or 6), and ran a few errands. No time to ride, but it's still a bit damp and slick anyway.

MOVE IN DAY...
Nope, that is not were we are now...It took me the better part of a month and a half to get the place ready, once all the "junk" was hauled off and the fencing was done, the barn was cleaned out, we opened the end on to the pasture and made it like a large run in, fenced off a dirt paddock and we were ready. We had water, hydro, shelter and pasture, what more do you need... The day my neighbor mowed the 5 acre pasture for me, I cried, because it was so perfect, she was going to have a home, just 1/4 mile from where we live. My riding instructor "gave" us Jackie, a 7 yr old shetland/mini cross as her companion. They became fast friends. All was well with the world, at least my world.

Show season already, but I know you have been working all yr just for that date. It will pay off.
Busy day ....again, my sister called me and said she was talking to Mom, and said she had chest pains, so she gave me a call so we could go over and check on her. She was OK, and did not want to go in to doctor. Stay for a while and eat dinner with her. Took baby chicks out of incubator when I got home, cleaned up other batch (from Good Friday) well cleaned up their tote and put them in the rabbit cage.
Rained all day long, so never got much done outside. Worked in the shed clean up after messy baby calves.

Yup, they just seem to make electronics a disposable nowadays! At least you can do a trade in for a discount. Will be packing tomorrow through Monday, so may be online limited. Saw Rocky last night and he got a brushing. Blue & Shiva went along to the barn too, which they enjoy, but I was mean and didn't let Blue romp in the mud.

Sorry about sending rain up your way. I'd have been happy to keep it a few more days, but it didn't consult with me.
Hope your knee recovers quickly from the cortisone injection. I know you aren't happy about it hurting again.
Oh yeah, had to punch another 4 inches of holes on each side, bless her little heart. I looked for an Arabian breast collar, but they were all super thin and decorative, not practical for trail riding at all.
With rain 2 days in a row (not complaining), it was too wet to ride yesterday, so I worked on digging tomato holes, which was a lot easier with the ground damp. I keep asking my local feed n seed to sell tomato holes, but they wont, lol. Unfortunately, right at the last hole, I seriously pulled my back again, same place I pulled last week and same place that bothered me with the old bed. Grrrr. So I'm moving slow again and back on Aleve. But the holes are all ready, just have to put the plants in.
Anyway, hope you have a great thursday.

THE SEARCH WAS ON....
Reality was I could not afford to board her and just go pat her 4x a week, so I literally started to knock on doors to try and find a place for her to live that I could afford. A neighbor told me about a farm not far from us, no one had used it in about 15 yrs, someone rented the little house, but the barn and pasture were unused. I located the owner and was told knock yourself out, but they were not willing to do any of the work, eg. fencing or repair, but if I wanted it, go for it. Here are a few of the pictures as we found the place, first David and my brother had to hack their way in with machete, it was so overgrown. It had been simply left about 15 years earlier. We spent the next month cleaning the place up and fencing so she would have a safe home. More tomorrow, we left a vote.

Sounds like a great day. Good to know on the printer. Mine also died. I will see if the sale is here as well. Jax and someone from the herd, had a bad play date. Jax's has a chunk out of his withers and cuts below. Plus he was kicked on the other side on his shoulder. Teenagers hugg. So no riding for a few days. It is cold here so blanket is back on. I will go out tonight make sure it isn't rubbing on the wound. Hope the shot worked for you. Vicki & Big Jax
