We received 1 ¾” of rain last night-the wind was unbelievable!!! I had to go and get feed and grocery’s yesterday and by the time we were finished it was too hot to ride. I did get fly stuff on the boys and checked the fly mask and then just watched them graze for the evening! Working the weekend but will try to do something with them after work but it will be to muddy to ride. Here is our finial tidbit on the Fabulous Rocky Mountain Horse Breed!
*TOBE was used for breeding until July of his thirty-fourth year, and he passed on his gait, disposition, and other great qualities to his offspring. It has been said that TOBE's progeny followed in his "perfectly-timed" footsteps. TOBE sired many fine horses before his death at the ripe old age of thirty-seven. One outstanding trait passed on was longevity, as many of his offspring were still breeding into their late twenties and early thirties.

Thank you for voting for Whiskey while I was unavailable the last few days. Whiskey sends you all double loves and hugs ♥ I am actually off work tomorrow and back the weekend!
* In the early 1960s, Sam Tuttle managed the trail riding concession at the Natural Bridge State Park in Powell County, Kentucky. He had as many as fifty horses there, including TOBE. This stallion was often seen tied to the hitching post alongside all the mares. He became quite well known in the ten or so years he was ridden there. Besides breeding, TOBE was used as a trail horse. He carried Sam, and sometimes the trail guides who worked for Sam, with sure-footed ease over mountainous terrain for many years. Although Sam would allow other people to ride TOBE occasionally, it was always a ride closely supervised. He loved to show off his beloved stallion, but also kept a close eye on him. Everyone who rode TOBE enjoyed his gentle temperament and comfortable gait. It amazed people to think the well-mannered horse they were riding was indeed a breeding stallion.

TGIF ♡ I am off work the weekend, then I have management training classes on mon, tues, & weds so it will be Thursday before I am around a computer again. Guess you know what that means~phone votes! Please continue to vote for Whiskey, he l♥ve’s you all!
* Even through the hard times of the Depression and World War II years, Sam Tuttle kept a sizable herd of thirty to forty horses on his farm. Sam is considered as the man most responsible for the survival of the Rocky Mountain Horse. TOBE was the primary Rocky Mountain stallion used in Sam's breeding program. In the 1950s, many people were selling their stallions, and the horse population in general was rapidly declining due to tractors and farm machinery available. Even so, breeders remembered TOBE, and he was always in demand for stud service. People brought their mares to TOBE from several different states, and he was as famous in Estill County as MAN O' WAR was in Lexington, Kentucky. Everyone who rode TOBE fell in love with him. TOBE's offspring were always in demand, and Sam never had any trouble selling all the Rocky Mountain Horses he could produce.

I took the fly masks off the horse’s yesterday evening. Whiskey rolled and really rubbed his head in the mud~silly boy. SO I went ahead and took off Deacon’s and Rocket’s. The flys are not as bad right now and I can say that won’t last long as we dry out from this last few days of rain. Have a wonderful day ♡
*Sam Tuttle was the most prominent breeder of Rocky Mountain Horses for the first three quarters of the twentieth century. With the advent of better roads and means of travel, the population of gaited horses in the United States began to decline. The exception was the less developed area of the Appalachian Mountains. Gaited horses were still needed for travel where there were no roads, and therefore they were preserved in that area.

I am off work tomorrow so I will phone vote as many as possible. We had a light shower yesterday evening which we needed. It freshened up the grass it was getting pretty dry. I just need the rain not to fill our lakes and streams like it did a few weeks ago! Mccown at Lake Whitney is still not open. Have a wonderful day ♡
*The families of eastern Kentucky who owned these horses were not wealthy and could not afford to spend a lot of money on the upkeep of their horses. Unlike Kentucky Thoroughbreds that were typically owned by wealthy people, the gaited horses of eastern Kentucky received no special care, and as a result, most of the weak ones did not survive. These horses withstood the harsh winters of eastern Kentucky with minimal shelter, and they were often fed "fodder", a kind of rough silage. Some had to exist on whatever sustenance they could find. So, like deer, they ate the bark off trees when they were hungry. Only the horses that survived these extreme conditions lived to reproduce their kind.

Whiskey’s mane & tail change colors several times in the year by going lighter then darker. His body color changes as well. He truly loves his bath time and grooming, he trailers well in any type I load him in, and will load without heisting at all. He is also my bareback horse. Perfect back for it so if I don’t feel like putting the saddle on I can always just get myself up on him and go at any time. He is the type that will come to you every time from the field or anywhere. I guess that’s the treat hound in him lol.
* The Rocky Mountain Horse breed originated in the United States in the late 1800s, in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains of eastern Kentucky. At the time of its beginnings, there was no understanding of the need to document anything about these horses. The people living in this region were quite unaware that one day their utility horses would become the foundation of a special breed of horse. The existence of these horses was practically a secret for many years to all but the inhabitants of this region.

My Whiskey boy has the antics of a comedian! He is so funny but yet so very gentle and lovable. He is in fact my “treat Hound”. He will do absolutely anything in the world to get a treat, cookie or carrot or anything to eat. If you show him how to do something and he knows you are going to give a treat he will try until he learns it to in fact get that treat. I have had so much fun with him. He will check me for a treat and if I don’t have one he will almost shrug me off with a turned head tossed in the air as if he is saying “I’m done with you, off you go child” .
* The history of the Rocky Mountain Horse from 1890 to the latter part of the 1900s carries little or no documentation and few facts that can be proven beyond the shadow of doubt. Everyone who personally witnessed the breed's beginnings (back to the 1800s) is deceased, and we have been left with only verbal history passed down from generation to generation. Thus, all that can be recorded at this point in time are the stories recollected by living descendants. Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

Congratulations on HOTD, left votes for all. Went out about dusk to set up feed for AM, saw something wiggling between my feet, jumped and slammed the door shut. A 1 1/2' copperhead got caught in the door, went around to the front of the porch, grabbed the baseball bat, went back in (front door), and beat it to death. Close call. One of my friends had 2 cats get rattlesnake bit yesterday, thankfully they survived (after a night at the vet's) and he killed the snake.

We had a nice weekend and hope you all did as well. Lizzy came over Saturday and rode Rocket and then she gave him the full grooming experience and I did the same with Whiskey. I had a 30 minute short workout for Deacon on Sunday morning then went to Tractor Supply for feed and the grocery store. Every other weekend I am not around a computer so I will phone vote as many as possible, also 1 x a week that I will phone vote :) * Rocky Mountain Horses are slow to mature and do not reach their full size and weight until about five to six years of age. Generally healthy horses, they often live long lives but do have a tendency to be extremely "easy keepers". Care must be taken to keep your Rockies from becoming too overweight, particularly in their later years.* Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

Start spring clean up...
Good morning, it is suppose to be a nice day, I got most of the inside work done yesterday so I can "work/play" outside today, I hate the look of all the old hay laying around from over winter, I will start to pick away at cleaning up the paddock areas. I am going to toss out some grass seed too. The bird "flu" will most definitely affect my work, a lot of these birds that are being destroyed were scheduled for processing at our plant, so as the quarantines are added, until they are lifted we won't be processing, right now we are killing birds that are not under quarantine, this will be a lengthy process. I'm just hoping we have it contained. Have a great day, left a vote, Love Donna Lee

IS IT SPRING YET???
Hi Sylvia, I love that profile pic of Sterly, it is from years ago, she has always had such a great winter coat, she is a winter kind of girl, not so much me...I keep her in her stall overnight now, but back in the "old days" she stayed out 24/7 and loved it, she of course had shelter if she chose, but most often she chose not to be inside, I love that old girl, if all horses were like her, everyone would have a horse, have a great day, we left a vote, Love Donna Lee

Good morning Sylvia, always good to hear from you, I know about not enough hours in the day... we left a vote. It has been a busy week at work. I did my groceries last night after work, Friday night in a grocery store, I must be out of my mind...
Charlie seem to be doing well with his new diet and feet are good because we have a nice snow cover, so fingers crossed that things keep going in this direction, I need a break, have a great weekend, Love Donna Lee

So nice to hear from you...
Good Morning, I am feeling a bit better, I found an amazing website with some fabulous info on ulcer diets, I have been suffering from information overload, but I think I have finally sorted thru this and started Charlie on some new "healing foods" One item that is particularly healing is dried cabbage, which of course, can not be found in Canada, so I borrowed a dehydrator from a friend at work and I'm drying my own. Pumpkin seed is another good food as well as oat flour and rice bran. He is now off ALL of the grain feed that he was getting and he is slowly starting to eat his new stuff, as long as he keeps eating his hay we are good. He is a bit picky and doesn't except new readily... This will take time but I'm told that if I hang in, I will have a happier horse, that is my goal. Love and a vote Donna Lee

BACK TO MY REGULAR SELF....
Good morning, it has been a week Friday since the colic. This morning I can report my good old boy is back....he is eating enthusiastically again and I'm so happy, thanks for the prayers. The nutritionist is coming out next week to discuss his diet in detail. We had enough snow yesterday that David had to use the snow blower to clear the driveway, this is just wrong, have I ever mentioned how much I hate winter? Have a great weekend, Love and a vote, Donna Lee
