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!!

the instructions were to do the stretches daily for 3-5 days then when ever possible. I'm trying to stretch them after every ride. I'm teaching my students how to do it so I will have help with it. one thing I noticed is that when they pee they do the pelvic tilt. I'm not struggling to do that one. they do it on their own several times a day! lol. I went to charlotte's saddler and met with their saddle fitter. looked at 3 saddles with wide trees. I need a 16in. she will bring them Wednesday to fit them to buttercup then i'll decide which to buy. one is a tucker, one a circle y flex 2, and the third is a circle y trail gaiter (usually used by gaited horses so it's more forgiving in the front for their high action). I picked out a blue biothane bridle and breastplate to go with it. I have to pay $70 for the saddle fitting but it will be deducted from the saddle that I buy. :)

Hope you are enjoying your riding :). Spent about 4 hours at the barn talking and grooming Jax. He was so cute. You tell he was enjoying the attention. Used some dry shampoo to clean his tail at the base. He is all white there and it looked like he was rubbing it. Didn't ride as it was only in the teens. Hoping for tomorrow. In the teens tonight. While sitting here typing, I just saw possible snow tomorrow. Riding is not looking promising. Hoping you are having a nice Saturday evening. Vicki & Big Jax

Hi Whiskey, here's a vote for ya. Well it was so cold and windy today. I really think that Spring has been renamed, extended Winter, to come for the month of May! Went over by Paige, got another showmanship workout. This time fine tuning our square turns and pivots. With added changes in my position now of handling and setting her up. What a difference in how Paige responded to the ques. Got home and was going to take a walk down to that woman's house to see if they found the beagle, but the winds had the temps down to 22 degrees and it was just to cold for my ole'bones. Hopefully tomorrow we'll start a warming trend again! But going down to 14 degrees tonight! More wood in the stove please! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Got Cisco up today and saddled, did groundwork with him. He was so relaxed - after pitching a bit of a fit about getting haltered. Also worked with Nugget - she was a really good girl. Worked on ground tying her, it only took her a few minutes to understand, she is so smart when she catches on to something and if it is presented in the right way.

Hi Whiskey, here's a vote for ya. Well, that rain last night, turned to snow! Nothing really to speak of here, but just 20 miles from me it was a few inches deep! Has anyone seen Spring? If so, give it our zip code please! LOL! Got over to see Paige and had a showmanship lesson again. Since I can't ride yet, Marissa is really drilling us, only today might have been to long. I felt it a little after the 40 minute workout! Got home and went for a walk, I know walking is really good for the back. Well the one mile I had planned on, turned into close to 2 miles. I meet a neighbor who's year old beagle ran off, slipped it's harness. Spent over 90 minutes walking the road and then the woods by her house looking for Olivia. Didn't find her. Hope she comes home for super! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

HI, left a vote. Not sure what I did to my right wrist, but I woke up with it 3 times bigger than my left one, and in a lot of pain. So, I am taking the weekend off from phones, computers, and horses to see if that will help. Have a great weekend everyone, I will be back on Monday!

Hope you get to the lake one way or another this weekend. Had lunch with a friend yesterday, started to take the truck, but had serious low pressure in one tire. Scott took it in today, bummer, need all new tires (they are like 6 yrs old), plenty of tread, but cracking). Ouch, that's going to major bucks, but SO glad it didn't happen while I was hauling.

Hi Sherry & herd, how are you able to keep Deacon shod for part of the year and barefoot for the remainder of the year? I'm just curious because Koot used to be barefoot when I got him and then I put front shoes on him because his hooves kept cracking walking on the street to the arenas, but I don't think I can take his front shoes back off and he'd be okay. Hope you have a wonderful weekend :) Thinking about going to see Koot after work if not I'll most likely see him both days this weekend :) Voted. XOXO Danya and Koot

Come visit me, Kootenai *Congrats Cisco our March HOTM!*.

glad you're heard is responsive when you stretch them. I think it's really good for them. I'm teaching my lesson riders who are competent enough to do it after their ride. the chiro also said to walk over a lot of poles scattered around the arena to keep their back stretched out. I do that anyway so it's easy to keep it up.

Lilly is tickled to be in the spot light as HOTD, today we had a great day riding in the arena, playing on the trail course that I have slowly been putting together, it's been fun, it was 70 + * today, unreal for Mosier this time of year, the cherry tree's are starting to bloom and there was a haunting buzz from the bee's as they were busy working,only put in an hour work at the orchard today, just felt like doing stuff around home and with the farm animals , Jack got a bath and all is good in our world, love Suz and Lilly

What can I say, my work is wet and dirty....
Good Morning my friends, feeling better today, most of the swelling is down, I can see again. For some of our jobs safety glasses are required, however, I wear glasses anyway. This was just a freak accident, believe me this does not happen often, in 14 years it has never happened to me. We had trouble with this flock of birds, they were not taken off feed early enough, it was just a bad day. Yesterday was such a mixed bag, wind, rain, snow, ice pellets then believe it or not, SUN. I am soooo ready for some nice dry weather. Have a great day. we left a vote, Love Donna Lee

Come visit me, Sterl May, Angel Sassy Mac Mar 8/95-Aug 8/07 & Royal Mes.

Wow sounds like you had a really good Sunday:) Can't say I did much, it was raining here and I was watching some shows on the computer...loafing around YES lol! But all through out the week I was pretty busy:)
I've been wanting to go to our county fair's rodeo arena and goof off and practice the barrel pattern. And sorta get a taste for if I ever make it to a real barrel-race! Let's see if it happens;) To me, there's just something about warmer cloudy days... I get in the mood for rodeos a lot. We only have one once a year, and I 'm hoping to get to more this summer! Don't think it'll happen,but you never know!
Have a great week!

Come visit me, Pardner Quick(Princess) Congrats Cisco on HOTM! & Miss Susie Q Cowgirl:Help us run for April HOTM!.

I'm so very sorry I haven't been on lately! It's been super hectic around here. You probably already have someone running for April HOTM; could you put me on the list for a different month and I will be ready this time!
On another note, we are finding unique ways to keep engaged wigh different and new lessons, and so we have started learning how to drive. It will be a long journey, but very eventful and memorable! :)

Come visit me, Sugar & Biscuit.

I finally was able to get on HC-kept saying my email was invalid.
Gorgeous day today. It's 3:30pm sunny and 41 degrees! The horses have been rolling in the snow which is good-tomorrow warmer yet and plenty of mud! Warmer weather lifts my spirits! Good day to all!
