How We Met

After my kids got to be 15 and 16 we had a family talk about them getting new computers or me getting a horse. We agreed that I had went long enough without having a horse! So a friend of mine that trail rides all the time helped me to find a good gentle gelding. She introduced me to Deacons owner Bill and I fell in love the moment I saw Deacon..

HI Deacon, here's a vote for ya. Okay, is it just me or is anyone else having trouble signing in on HC! It's like the My Account, and Login boxes are gone! I clicked on HOTD and voted, then it says must sign in and I did! But I can't get to the My Account page at all! Weather was just delightful today, hit 67 F with strong sun! Snow is gone, well except for the walls of it I plowed it into! Had another great showmanship lesson with Paige. Then Marissa tacked her up and showed me what they are working on with her. Looking good! Got home and Honey and I did our mile walk, it was so nice out! Just a shirt, no sweater or jacket needed today! New farrier is coming in the morning to properly trim Indy. YAY! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

HI Deacon, here's a vote for ya. Well started out with rain and drizzle and damp. But burnt off and sunshine and 52 degrees. Indy got worked and then I tried doing the showmanship backing squares with him. He got it going to the left, but to the right he kept wanting to stop and do pivots instead. It's hard to think about moving, backing and being on the correct front foot to not get the cross over and have them step on themselves! Bullseye got to free play. Then Honey and I did another one mile walk. Hopefully tomorrow it'll be sunny and they say in the low 60's! WHOO HOO! Dry it up! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Deacon, here's a vote for ya. Well another 46 degree day, but overcast. Still did melt off more snow and some places the mud and grass is drying out a little. But possibly rain tomorrow! Got Indy and Bullseye done. Then headed over to Paige. Marissa's back to work, yay! So I lunged Paige, then had a showmanship lesson. WOW learned the proper way to back a horse in the letter C and then in a square! Talk about concentration on what front foot is where to get that box square! Gonna be working on this for a while for sure! It's all about timing, and I'm not that big on paying attention! LOL! But just like I used to tell my ski students, it comes natural for me cause I do it all the time, so the more you practice, the more it becomes natural for you. So this too will happen for me! Got home and took Honey for our mile walk. Then at 4:20 I finally had lunch! LOL! Then passed out later on for a 90 minute nap! I was whipped! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Deacon, here's a vote for ya. What another nice sunny day today! Not as warm, but still hit 46F which is good for us this time of the winter. Got Indy and Bullseye out to the indoor for playtime! Had the big doors open to let air and sunlight in, but the rider guard doors shut to keep them in! LOL! Then Honey and I did another walk, today we did 1.1 miles. I'm building up my knees and muscling in them slowly! Tonight going down into the low 20's, so the wood burner will be fired up in the house and Indy's heater will be on for him. Tomorrow not much warmer, but Wed and Thurs going into the high 50's again! Yes, I'll take it! More snow melted today, and all the ice is really gone now. Couple of more days and we should see ground again! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Deacon, here's a vote for ya. WOW it hit 58 degrees today with sunshine! Just about all the snow is gone, except for my wall of course! And some of thicker ice is still hanging on! But tomorrow might take care of that! Had the barn door open all afternoon. Mo was in the crate so he wouldn't take off on me and miss curfew for the night. Indy got a good spa day and then free lunging in the indoor! Bullseye got to free run and play inside too! Just too muddy in any of the pastures to even think about turnout! Did a few little things outside to straighten up over on the crushed stone driveway to the big trailer, it was all dug up from pushing the snow up onto my wall! Then Honey and I went for our first walk of the year down the road. We only did about 3/4 mile total. I have to build my knees up to walking again, without blowing them out! Need to show this summer! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

A Vote for You!!
I found the best time, I can sleep, is in Church,...:). I wake up nearly every night around 3:20, last night it was even earlier. Then I can not go back to sleep. Usually, we are up by 5:30-6, dogs want to go out. I am a very light sleeper, and I can hear Sadie, moving around in her "room". I have a very active mind, that keeps me thinking even when I am sleeping.
I hope you are sitting down, when I tell you the temperature got up to 50...I heard 52, but 50 in Feb. is like hitting the jackpot. But sure made the driveway slippery, with melting over the ice. But I no longer can walk on top of the snow, which is still about 18inches. Bare spots around the trees, and the house.

The same storm that's hitting California, is headed my way. Even though I'm east of California, the heavy wind is coming from the East. Hoping the rain won't be too heavy. Roads and highways have a tendency to flood. Will have to drive extra careful. Long work weekend. Thanks for the votes. Love and a return vote.

Hi Deacon, here's a vote for ya. YAY sunshine and hardly no winds! Got up to about 40F with the sun it felt like springtime! Oh won a $25 AmEx Gift Card this morning! YAY if I could only win the big one! LOL! Went and finally got a haircut! Then over to Paige, but Marissa left a note on her door that she was working with her tonight and not to lunge her this afternoon. Okay, so we just had bonding time while she was eating her lunchtime hay. Home and still couldn't get Indy to the indoor. Was still icy lumpy bumpy mess on the walkway to there! Should be better tomorrow and I'll take the tractor and smooth it out then too. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Working Thursday through Sunday. Came home from work, Thursday night, and mopped, then started a load of laundry. Scruffy's gotten so skinny. I feed him twice a day. Started him on wormer, last night. He's so active. Hard to believe he'll be 11 in August. Talks a lot, too. Lol. Leaving lots of love and a vote.

Hi Deacon, here's a vote for ya. Well never got about 29F today, so nothing really softened up and melted! Including the mess Bullseye made of the baby paddock behind the barn that you have to walk through to get to the indoor. So the frozen clumps were not going to be friendly to barefoot Indy! He had to stay in today. And we had snow during the night, just enough to cover the ice and the truck and driveway. That did melt off since it was just a dusting. Got over to lunge Paige and do more showmanship. But the winds were blowing fast and furious. And the indoor there has some lose wall panels, so it was very interesting and noisey! Paige was more settled when we did showmanship. I think having me close to her made her feel more secure! Mommy's little girl! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Deacon, here's a vote for ya. Well always said, if you don't like the weather in Jersey, wait 5 minutes, it'll change! What a mixed bag of weather tricks today. Started out at 23F and sun in and out. Then got up to 43F and and semi sunny. Just as my hayman pulled in with a load of hay, it starts to rain! He did get the truck backed into the hay barn in time to keep it all dry. Then 90 minutes later, then temps dropped to 34F and it's snowing out there with winds! OHY! So I managed to hose off the truck using the horses wand and the hot water from the garage. Then Indy got lunged and Bullseye got turned out in the baby pasture. Of course that was when it started to rain, but told him the water will clean his coat off, go roll in the snow! LOL! Heard from Jill, Laura's mom, said that Paige was very good for her ride today and showmanship. She's really enjoying her. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Deacon, here's a Happy Valentine's Day vote for ya. Well got a lot done today. And we did get sunshine finally and up to 37 degrees, so a lot of this frozen covered stuff melted off. Of course they are saying maybe 2 more inches coming tomorrow morning! OHY! Indy got free lunged and so did Bullseye. Then I went over and lunged Paige and did some more of the showmanship that Marissa taught me. Marissa is still out sick with that darn flu. Yes, please stay home and don't infect all of us! LOL!

Hi Deacon, here's a vote for ya. Well Laura and her mom made the trip up yesterday in the sleet and snow and rain to work with Paige. Jill said last night that Laura had a very good ride on Paige and also Showmanship was great! I was very happy to hear that. So today, it was flurries on and off all day long! Sun would come out, the go bye bye and flurries, repeat all day long! And the winds, OMG there were steady about about 20 mph and gusts up to 50 mph they said! And it sure felt like it! Boys never left the barn! I had the chiropractor and the Wally World for grocery shopping. Thought I was going airborne in the parking lots! Tomorrow is my Paige day, yay!

Hi Deacon, here's a vote for ya. Well the snow came again! About 3 or 4 inches before turning over to misty rain! South of me was freezing rain and ice! So I'll take the snow! Indy got his tail bag removed and a good spa work on it, had to lop of about 5 inches, it was on the ground. And that's only in about a 8 week period of time! That boy grows a tail! Hayed and watered them. Then fired up the tractor and just did a triple wide run up the driveway. Hand cleared a shovels width all around the truck, so if I need to get out, I can! Tomorrow I'll see what I have to finish up on. Sun for Monday and Tuesday, and then yep more snow WED! I'm really sick of it! So Laura and her mom did make it up to work with Paige today. Laura said that she was much better and is improving with each ride. Glad that they got there, they came from all rain area, but do have a 2017 Chevy Burb! So 4 wheel drive if needed. Jill said it wasn't that bad on the main highways. Glad that they had a safe trip. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Deacon, here's a vote for ya. WOW we hit 43 degrees today with some sunshine! So a lot of the snow compressed and melted! Yep just in time for tomorrow's storm that's moving in late in the morning! Well got a text from Marissa this morning. Marissa's sick as heck and headed to the doctors! So please lunge Paige and work on your showmanship lessons that I taught you. Outcome was, Marissa has the flu! She's been on foal watch all night long for over a week now for the owner of the farm. So she sleeps for maybe 4 hours in the early morning before starting to work horses and do lessons. Plus spending all day Thursday outside clearing that big place with a broken down plow truck and then shoveling cause the snow blower blew the rip start cord! Anyhow, Paige was a little full of herself, so I knew she didn't get worked Thursday cause of the snow removal, and Annie said that yesterday Marissa was sick and slept in the trailer all day long. So for the first couple of minutes, Paige was a little up on the line! Then she settled in. Hopefully Laura will be up tomorrow before it gets bad out there to work her, otherwise I might have to find a way to get there if the sleet and snow is bad. Paige can't have another two days in her stall, she's not good about it like Indy or Bullseye! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Don't know if you're off or working this weekend, but I hope it's a good one. I'm loving the days getting a little longer, can stay out till 6:30ish now. Hope that makes it easier for you to get Deacon time after work.
I rode Allie briefly yesterday evening. She was happy with a brief easy ride. She's getting downright bendy at the walk and trot, still in a rope halter. I'm proud of her. We didn't have enough time to try loping. Maybe today. I was out feeding late when the moon came up, and oh my goodness, it was so huge and beautiful! Mattie and I just had to stop and stare at it for a while.
Well, hope you have a great saturday. Take care.

Hi. Sorry I wasn't on again yesterday. A long-time friend called in the morning and wanted to meet over coffee. We haven't seen each other in about 6 months, so it was great to see her. But I've found that if I don't get on HC first thing in the am, I don't have time later in the day.
How are you and Deacon doing? Hope you're getting some horse time. I haven't in the last few days for one reason or another, but hope to correct that this weekend. I've been busy trying to find a used truck that's reliable but not much money. Pretty limited options, as you can imagine, but that's not a bad thing. I haven't hauled anywhere in over 2 years cause I don't trust my ancient farm truck, and I'm so ready to go again. The trails have been calling me.
Well, hope things are going well and you have a great friday.

Changed things up a bit, decided to try and halter Sunset without taking a bucket of feed out. Took awhile, but was finally able to get her haltered. Lots of praise and a carrot, took the halter off and put it back on several times, then turned her loose. Small steps (of course, Cisco was "helping" - mostly getting in the way).

Hi Deacon, here's a vote for ya. Well this day was just snowy and horrible! We got at least 10 inches and most drifts were about 15 inches with a couple that were well over 2 foot deep! 17 F degrees with 16 mph wind and gusts that were hitting 40 mph! And let me tell ya, being the on the tractor and getting blasted in the face was not fun! Or with the snow thrower! Pictures on FB! Had to work in shifts, first one was 2.5 hours of clearing. Then broke for lunch and to warm up and dry my gloves and neck/face gator off in the dryer! Then out to clean off the Beast and move it and plow there! Hayed Indy and Bullseye and came up to the house to defrost! Hopefully Friday I can get to pay my property taxes and a run over to see Paige! But I'll be re-plowing the driveway and walk way to the barn. It's all wind blown in and drifting from the high winds! I hate winter! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Just got back. Hated to leave Mom, but she's doing well. Parkinson's Disease affects emotions. Maybe, with losing her husband, that's a good thing. She says she's sure going to miss him. I know she already does. It was a nice visit even though it was for a sad reason. The funeral was Saturday. Thanks for thinking of us. I took my laptop to vote, but forgot my charger, so my laptop stayed dead. Sissy started crying when she saw me. My cats were happy to see me. Scruffy met me when we drove in. And Sadie?

Hi Deacon, here's a vote for ya. Well a productive day today! Sunny for the most part, but it did hide a few times. And temps hit 51F degrees! That's cause it's going to drop like a lead balloon tonight and snow like a mother! We now went from 6 to 10 to an upgrade of 8 to 12 inches! OH YUK! Well Indy got lunged and a good grooming. Bullseye got to free play, then got his hooves trimmed and then took the clippers to him. He loves to lay down and roll in his pee, so his hip and gaskin are all matted! Remember Donkey fur is long! No matter how much I try to keep it clean and brushed, he makes a mess of himself. So he's naked on both sides just in that area! LOL! Well tomorrow is my day with Paige and it looks like another day mom won't get to see her and work with her! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Prancing by with a good morning vote! We worked on the boys goat fence yesterday and got it all done! Now all we have to do is finish their shelter! After we were done with the fence yesterday I did get to ride! I rode Copper in his western saddle and loped and trotted him a lot! He did amazing! I even trotted the barrel pattern twice and loped it once! I have been working on his loping in one direction and then gradually turning him the other way and trying to make him do a flying lead change. Before he would usually just counter canter (he's really good at that) or he would move down to a trot and complete a simple lead change. But yesterday I kept him at it and he did three flying lead changes!!!!! I am soooo proud of him!

Busy day. Jazz got her bath, Bo got groomed, Sunset got her butt worked. Did groundwork, then to the tie for grooming (torture instruments - comb, brush, shedding blade and bot knife). Then to the round pen, got a "sort of" join up, she did pretty well. Wow, she was strutting, nose in the air and tail flagged. Planning on saddling her tommorow and do more work in the round pen.

So it feel just 2 hours before my driving to see and work with Paige. Marissa called before we even got the bad weather cause it was there already and totally iced up! And sure enough, it had started here and icicles were forming on the my deck railings and the truck was covered! So I stayed home safe and sound! Spa day for Indy and Bullseye, no going to the indoor at all, icy out there! Now tomorrow they say near 50 degrees, and then dropping like a lead balloon! With yep, bad snowstorm, could see as much as 10 inches or more by me! So there goes my Thursday to see and work with Paige! I'm having Paige withdrawal! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.
