How We Met

While camping out with friends some people that I knew invited a couple to ride with us that weekend. When they arrived they unloaded thier horses. As they backed out of the trailer I asked "what kind of horses are they?" They told me Rocky Mountain horses. They had one silver dapple and one red chocolate. I fell in love that day as we rode together. At one place that we stopped "Whiskey" came over to me and rubbed his muzzle on my hand and that was the moment I had to say to them "If you ever sale this horse please let me know first" Eight months later I got a call from Karla saying they were selling him-and that my friends was the begining of our journey together!!

buttercup was a doodle today with my lesson rider. had a good ride doing trot transitions, then cantered one way, turned to canter the other way and had a bucking fit and dumped her. she got back on and buttercup just started the stiff leg jumping up and kicking out so she fell again. sigh. i got on praying i wouldn't break something a few days before my long vacation starts! i really leaned back, grabbed mane and kept her head up. she bucked about 4 times, then i trotted her both ways and ended it, didn't try to canter because i was too tired since i'd ridden peach already this morning. remember it's 90's here with "feels like 110" temps. too much! hope she gets over this. i'm wondering if she's got some back soreness?

Trottin' by with a quick vote! Hope it isn't too hot to ride Whiskey and Deacon!

It's 90 degrees outside and the flies are swarming around here. I've barely ridden the past few days - both Cimarron and I start to sweat when we're just standing around, and it barely cools off even at night.

A paragraph that I wrote about Cimarron is featured in the Rider Insider section of the August Horse Illustrated. I'm very excited about that!

Come visit me, Cimarron.

Hi from Celeste and herd
I went to the horse show today with Lacey. It was a mixed show so there were these giants competeing with the minis all together in one pen. I only entered in one class of 16 and we came in 5th then on the way out one of the larger horses went a little crazy and knocked two people and me to the ground, I held onto to Lacey and was nearly trampled by two horses. Not a great first show experience. I won't go back to the local show, I may try a fall fair. The experience left me a little shaken.
Take care and God bless...love Celeste

Hi Whiskey, here's a vote for ya. Sunny but did it get humid! Got my ride in on Paige, then gave her a good cool hosing off. We worked on some new trail stuff, really hoping to show Green Trail in three weeks. Hosed off Indy too! Mowed the lawn and two pastures! I have a darn baby shower to go to tomorrow, so I won't be able to keep up on the mowing, had to work twice as hard today. Not into sitting around talking babies, NOT my thing! It is outdoors and supposed to rain, might be my way out! Now if it well a barn shower for a foal, I'd be up for it! LOL! then I can get all awh and googlie. LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Very proud of my boy. He did so well his first time out. He popped in a pretty big buck just before we started, made me nervous at the first 2 obstacles, which made him fidgety. I think we might have placed if he had gone over the bridge (it was a hogshead type bridge and he had never seen anything like that). I went back and tried it a second time, and he went over perfectly. Made out like a bandit at the raffle, won twice, probably close to $50 worth, including a huge bag of Apple flavored horse treats which Cisco loves. Cheryl & Cisco

here's a Friday vote. rode buttercup out in the pasture while teaching a lesson last night. I tried to video my rider jumping peach but buttercup what a knucklehead...trying to paw if I halted, dancing around and even leaping in the air and kicking out with her back legs like a lipizanner! maybe a bug? she is quite the athlete. lol.

Hi Whiskey, here's a vote for ya. Today was sunny and hot, got humid out too! But it was a different kind of lovely day for me! I got to visit with my sister! I haven't seen her in a year and she's up from NC. We got together with two other gals from the old stables we all rode at back in the early 70's. It was great! Tami and Sandy aren't really riding anymore. But sis, Kathy is still into Eventing and driving their pony around too. Had a great time! Got home with enough time left to turn the kids out for some pasture. Paige's fly sheet came and it fits her good! Forgot to take a picture, darn! Tomorrow. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hope you had a good ride this morning. Have you seen next week's forecast? Chance of rain all week, and Thurs a high of 79. In Texas. In July. Hope I don't have to get the winter jacket back out. Cisco was a bit bouncy this AM, but settled down. We worked on a few things, some he did really good at, some were pretty awful. Cheryl & Cisco (stayed squeaky clean)

Hi Ya!
Riding this weekend? If so have a wonderful time and be safe.

We had another family look at Trigger yesterday. Then one adult person says, 'well he is not big enough for me' Then I ask "I thought he was for your children?" They tell me the children are in their family and will visit. So we still have Trigger. LOL.
I did sell my cart yesterday. The man used it yesterday evening. And he was very happy with it!

Have a very blessed weekend!
Love Fancy and Frances

Although equine polysaccharide storage myopathy is a completely manageable disease, the consequences can be tragic if you don't manage it. That's why AQHA offers a genetic test to look for the presence of PSSM in horses,as well as four other genetic diseases: GBED,HERDA,MH, and HYPP.

Its been pretty hot here too. We got a late start mowing hay b/c something in the gearbox on the mower was broken. It took awhile to get the part in, so we cut hay all day.

Dropping by with a good morning vote. I got a really bad sunburn yesterday when I was riding and now I look like a lobster! I have a wedding this weekend and a horse camp next week. So excited.

If anyone has any homemade fly spray recipes, please do share! I'm going to try to feed 1/4 C apple cider vinegar with their feed once a day and then make a fly spray with dish soap, vinegar, and water. Hopefully it works. The mosquitoes are nuts at my place!

HI, left a vote. Got some Amber time today. Rode in the field and up to Brook's house and back down today. She wanted to eat and was wanting to get back quickly today. I told her no, she then tossed her head a couple of times, then she popped up. Only about 6 inches off the ground, lol. I brought her head around, told her " I don't think so sister!" Flexed her on both side a couple of times, gave her a pat on the neck, and told her to go to Brook's house. Off we went, not in a hurry and not trying to eat! LOL! She did great!

I've been vacationing for the last week (my family went to Disneyland), but I've been getting daily reports on Cimarron (of course).

I'm impressed with the draft horses around here - Disneyland currently has 15 horses of varying sizes and breeds. The horses work no more than three hours a day, three days a week, and they live on a five acre ranch called the Circle D, located behind Toontown. One of the horses I met, a gray Shire named Reggie, does a lot of weddings. Finn the Brabant is still in-training, and mostly spends time at the petting zoo. The tallest horse is a 19 hand, 2300 pound Shire gelding named Sulley. That's a good 16 inches taller than Cimarron, and over twice Cimarron's weight!

Hope all is well! How is Whiskey doing? And Deacon?

Come visit me, Cimarron.
