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!!

Hi Whiskey, here's a vote for ya. Well it was a little cooler today and got overcast this afternoon. But the horses all loved their time out in the pastures. Just really need some light rain to make things grow a little more before grass growing season is totally over. Ribs about the same today, guess it's just gonna take some time! You would think I know that by now, after all the broken ribs I've had over the years! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Vacation sounds good. How does Rocket ride? I know he's your Hubby's horse, but sounds like you're the primary caregiver. I have the problem that whoever I ride, I feel guilty for not riding the other one. And that's going to get worse when Allie is old enough to start. Can't complain though, cause the problem is, we have more than 1 horse. And really, how much of a problem is that?lol. Hope you have a good Tue.

Glad you got in some time with the horses. How's Whiskey's leg doing? Lots of fine, fat horses at the clinic. Told Dana that Chip looked like he hadn't missed many meals, and she said he is now missing most of them. She thought he was getting fat, got the weight tape out and it wouldn't even go around him. Hauled him to a livestock scale, and he weighed in at 1488! He's NOT that big of a horse, maybe about Deacon's size but a little heavier build.

Looks like HC is fixing to have problems and I surely don't have time for it...so I will post here and vote for you all another time-sorry! The shower was beautiful and now we have the Wedding the 25th of Oct. so this month will be flying by. I am taking vacation next week so I will phone vote and visit when I can. I brushed and turned out the herd Friday after work. After the shower Sat. I saddled up Rocket and rode awhile around our home place. Sunday I rode Deacon around home and turned the boys out the rest of the day. What a relaxing sunday!

Come visit me, ~* Whiskey*~ & ♥Deacon.

Glad the bridal shower went well and was beautiful. And that you were able to ride. I was finally able to squeeze in a little bareback ride in on BJ yesterday, but was disappointed to find that his breathing was bad again. Drat!

Hi Whiskey, here's a vote for ya. Well it was just a beautiful day out and I couldn't work outside! Hit like 85 degrees with a light breeze and low humidity. Got the kids out all afternoon however. Didn't hurt as much picking stalls, hurt but not like last night. Down to only 1 Advil every 6 hours now. Still very sore, don't get me wrong, but I don't think I cracked any ribs, just really bruised! I hate being out of commission! Good thing it was football sunday! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Glad the shower was beautiful. Busy unloading truck & trailer, doing laundry and cleaning the trailer. Steve showed me a couple of things to work with on Nugget to get her to pick up her feet better, so worked a bit on that today.

Something that can only be described by the phrase "It's a long story" began last Monday, when my cousins offered to temporarily keep a neglected Belgian stallion in a paddock at our barn. The paddock has a mesh fence with hotwire on the top. It's more than enough to contain the horses in Cimarron's herd, but it was not enough to contain the Belgian.
The stallion tore out a section of the fence, hotwire and all, and escaped into the main pasture, where he proceeded to wreak havoc. He pursued the mares, of course, but Cimarron and another gelding got in the way. The stallion thrashed both of them, although Cimarron got the worst of it. He's missing a large chunk of hide from his shoulder, has a fist-sized bite on his neck, and another bite on the underside of his neck, near his throatlatch. My cousins managed to drive the stallion into a pasture on the neighboring property - one with a more solid fence. Meanwhile, I'm rather upset about this whole series of events. My poor Cimarron!
The good news for the day is that Cimarron got new shoes, so his feet look really beautiful now, and he's been happily begging for treats and wiggling his tongue at me. So... That's something.

Come visit me, Pippin & Cimarron.

Whiskey, Deacon, Sherry
finally back to the computer to Blog, Lilly is doing fantastic, I have all my fall maintenance for her lined up , a trim then Dr. Jeff comes for her fall shots and wellness check, Have been riding or walking every night this week, to keep me focused on the important stuff like love laughter and me time, all this week I have been involved in transitioning my job out, which is really weird thing to do, ( work your way out of a job )not sure what my last day is but I think sometime in Oct, early I hope, I know longer will be doing what I do as of Oct. 2 I doubt my company would want to hang on to me to do nothing for very long after that. I actually can't wait now to get out of corporate America, it has been a good job but I have resolved now that a new, glorious adventureis about to begin. !! Love Suz and Lilly

The Mikmar bit is really great. He has never had a roller in his mouth, so it really surprised him and therefore he played with it a lot the first day! He held his head higher than desired and was confused on the four points of pressure this bit gives (mouth, nose, chin, poll), but yesterday he fully accepted it, put his head into that beautiful arched position of his, and did everything perfect I asked of him! Maybe the bit?, or maybe he was just being a good boy! Time will tell lol! The second bit just arrived so I haven't tried it, but it will go on the English bridle.
My husband thinks his sour behaviour lately is due to pain somewhere, or a trust issue between us after the trailer incident. I'll have him checked out tomorrow, but I haven't found any heat or tender spots on him.
Love, carrots, and votes to all!

ONLY IN CANADA, EH...
We really have had some crazy weather this summer, I'm sure I mentioned it before, I know everyone is afraid of something, my thing is STORMS, can't explain it, it comes over me like a wave, terrible anxiety, uneasiness, I pace, I can't relax, once we had a tornado lock down at work, it was not a pretty site, everyone I work with is now aware of my phobia. Today is suppose to be nice, as long as we ride around the puddles we will be OK. We left a vote, Love Donna Lee
