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. Well not much got done today! Did decided to go grocery shopping today cause of the rains! Got home and my hayman had been here took out a load of that bad weedy, dusty, smelly hay. But they forced the big door shut and bent a piece of metal on the bottom track! I couldn't shut it all the way or re-open it! And of course by then it was raining hard! Hack saw to the rescue! Didn't need that 1 by 1.5 inch of metal anyhow! LOL! Then of course the rains really got heavy, so it was just give them lunch and fresh water and forget about dragging them to the indoor. They were all nice and content in the barn. Tomorrow's another day of possibly more rain! We'll see what gets done! I really don't want these sinuses acting up and me getting sick again! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Deacon, here's a vote for ya. Well when my equine dentist says 9:30 am I'll be there, he wasn't kidding. Right on the dot of 9:30 am! Paige and Indy were good to do and their teeth weren't that bad at all. Bullseye was his usual stinker self! Only thing he hates in life, having his teeth done! When Paul finished up, I brought Honey out to meet him. At first she barked and wouldn't go near him. 5 minutes later she was sniffing him and then eating doggie cookies from him. She's really coming along great! Didn't get much done, as I started with another sinus headache again today! GEEZZZ! This cold just kills my sinuses! And now tomorrow a freezing sleet and rain forecast! Oh well, just have to wait and see. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Friends from the Pacific Northwest, what a winter we are having, there's been snow on the ground since early Dec, and it still snows on and off, weve had almost 5 feet of snow, it has settled to 18 inches now, and we are in for a big warm rain towards the middle of the week, kinda nervous its gonna be a huge mess, Lilly and the Goat boys said they are done with winter, hahah I still manage to get them out for a walk just about everyday but it is only down our plowed driveway , Lilly has made lots of snow angels the temperature for the last three weeks has not gotten over 25* usually we hang around 19* this winter is really wearing me out packing water, we froze up for 4 days and had to use snow and snow melt, now that was a challenge, the barnyard and I are ready for some fun warmth and riding time, God Speed to everyone, love Suz, Lilly and the Goat Boys

Come visit me, Lilly.

It was so warm and sunny yesterday (after a heavy fog finally burned off). I was able to saddle up BJ and ride him in the riding ring, but the neighbor's annoying hound dog was over and got right in front of us barking and challenging BJ to his face. Ok, we can use a hound as a substitute cow, so the chase was on. Man, I had forgotten how good BJ is on chasing stuff, he's got some moves! That hound dog couldn't get away from him. It was pretty fun, I was laughing most of the time.
Well, off to work. Hope you have a great monday.

Hi Deacon, here's a vote for ya. Well we got lucky and the snow only amounted to 1.5 inches. And sun today with 35 degrees, so the driveway (black top part) melted off. Paige got lunged and showmanship. Indy got to free play. And Bullseye got turned out in the pasture! Yep was able to get across the front of the barn to the pasture, ice was covered with snow and safe to walk on without slipping. Have the equine dentist coming Monday morning. And best yet, Mo's home and in the barn! He came to the rock wall around noontime, wouldn't walk through the snow, stinker! I went around the pasture fence and he walked the rock wall to me, I picked him up and carried him back to the barn. He was sleeping in the window ledge sunlight all afternoon! Sun bathing to warm up his body I think! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

From your FB post looks like you had a great day yesterday. I didn't get to ride because the neighbor was cutting limbs across the road and that really scares the horses but it worked out okay because my son came home from his big trip we finally got to talk and see his pictures. New Zealand looks so incredibly beautiful, just breath taking.
Well, hope you have a great Sunday take care.

Rained some on Saturday. Was going to let Sadie out but went in her corral to see how the ground was. Not slippery, so her butt is still in it. Lol. She's mad. I know it's because she thinks she's suppose to be let out. It's amazing how much attitude she has. Gave her some carrots, loved on her, and now, I'm sending you votes. Love and hugs.

Miss you on HC. Step by slow step. Today she walked up to me from about 200' when I called her, then really looked at me and started to tremble. Talked to her, gave her a few carrots. Won't even attempt to halter for a few days - have ordered a break away halter for her. Maybe I can lure her to the round pen with a bucket of feed when we get a few nice days, maybe get her to join up so I can halter her. The pen she is just a bit to big.

Hi Deacon, here's a vote for ya. Well started out cold and sun for a couple of hours. Got overcast then. I had a show meeting to go to at Marissa's for our show season. It was held at the local Italian Rest. and we had a Pizza luncheon/meeting. Lot of new ideas, some good, some I don't agree with! But have to go with the flow! And don't ya think, just as we're leaving, it starts snowing! We rode over with Marissa, got back to her barn, 5 minute drive, and hung out with Laura and her mom Jill a few more minutes, like 20! Go outside, and everything is covered in white! Not fun for me. Major roads were brinned, but not my home town road, that was fun with the dually! But home safe and sound. About 1.5 inches so far out there! Gave the kids lunch, 3 pm on time and came in the house and fired up the woodburner and hung out with Honey! Mo did make an appearance, but I was to slow to get to the barn and let him in. He's still out! Hopefully held up out of the snow! Love ya, Marion and the blondes

Hi. Saw you on Paige's page and came over. Sure miss hearing from you. I can't search members anymore, so if they aren't on in a while, the only way I can find them is to look back through pages of old blogs.
Sounds like you haven't had much horse time due to the weather? Yall have sure had a rainy year. Oh well, better than your usual drought, thought it makes horse time difficult.
I've finally been able to get back on Allie this week and it's been great. She didn't forget anything and is doing pretty well. She seems to love cinflict, so several times every ride, she has to throw her head up and resist when I pick up a rein, but overall, she's doing good. She's downright soft at the walk now, sometimes following the rein into a bend before I make contact. Love that. I've still got her in a rope halter and probably won't try a bit till she's soft at all 3 gaits, she seems to fear being pulled on too hard in a bit and fights it worse. I have the freedom to correct her in the halter without hurting her.
Well, hope you have a great weekend, even if it rains. Take care.

Vote 9800!
Hi Deacon, here's vote #9800 for ya. Well the sun was out but so was the winds! Very gusty! And the temps dropped over 16 degrees in a matter of hours! Did get them to the indoor for some exercise, but the doors were banging and I wasn't about to ride! Erin, who is partners with Steve where I adopted Honey from, stopped by today. She couldn't believe how awesome Honey is looking and how well she listens to me and just hangs out! Honey did many sit stays to show off. And she gave Erin a few kisses too! It was a fun day for Honey! Now if Mo would just come home tonight! He took off yesterday during the daytime in the nice temps, he'll freeze tonight out there, going down to 20F! I'll be calling for him till whenever, hope he hears me! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

A Vote for You!!
Someone really made Mother Nature mad....nearly a foot or more of snow, some places and then bitterly cold winds, some up to 40-50 mph. I figured we received about 9-10 inches of snow. So much we could not get out of the driveway to go pick up Sadie, from the vet's after being fixed. Dominic took care of her and called every few hours to ask me questions or tell me what she was doing. Mikey has labs this morning at 10, and then 3 appointments tomorrow over 100 miles one way.
Glad we hauled all the loose hay and small squares to the pigs and Highlanders, they have it easy this morning, don't even have to go outside.

Sadie's been out of her coral for about 2 weeks, because it was slick and messy from all the rain. As soon as she was put back in, Monday, it started raining. I had to let her back out. Hope you're all doing wonderful. Warm hugs and a vote.

Hi Deacon, here's a vote for ya. Well once again the weathermen lied! At least I didn't wake up to the snow and sleet, although maybe tonight they are saying now. But they also said that today's high was going to be 35F! Well it started out as 7F and only got to 25F when I worked out the horses. And the sun didn't hang around more than an hour! But Paige got lunged and showmanship. Indy got lunged and Bullseye got free play time. Hopefully they are right and the temps will be going up for a few days. I'd love to turn the heat off in the barn. Oh that electric bill is going to be a truck payment next month! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Computers are nice, but can be a pain in the butt sometimes.

Mike just informed me that we have 3 more months plus, of this weather. Our house is so cold, 51 this morning and 23 outside. Leaving now to take Sadie to the vet to be fixed, certainly do not want any "oops" puppies from her. See if I can afford to do Smokey Joe and Grizzly next month, but cats are cheaper.

So good to hear room you, wondered where you've been. Computers are nothing but trouble. Mine is having issues too, doing phone votes as well.
How's Deacon doing. Saw you got to ride at the lake last week, so glad. That had to be fun. I haven't had hardly any ride time since Thanksgiving, but I took BJ out in the field yesterday for a leisurely stroll and it was great to be back on.
Well, gotta scoot to work. Hope you have a great tuesday.

Hi Deacon, here's a vote for ya. Well coldest one yet! 5 F degrees at wake up time, up to 7 F when I left for the dentist. And don't ya think, his dental assistant is sick and working. She came in my room to remove the bib and you could hear it in her voice, what little she had left of it. I asked, are you sick? She's like oh yeah, I feel like heck. GEZZZ go the hell home and don't pass it on! Anyhow, got home and after lunch and my meds, I went down and hand walked Paige for 20 minutes in the indoor. Temp in there was a mere 20 degrees. I was bundled up and scarf over my mouth so as to not breath in the cold air. Got ready then for chiropractor. Get there and there's no one in the receptions desk! Dr. Joe comes out and I asked where Aggie was. She's home sick with no voice and feels like heck. Well at least someone knew better and stayed home! Two more days of meds to take, so hopefully this won't come back! Snow, sleet and freezing rain for Tuesday, oh YAY! NOT! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

E-Mail cards are found under Horse Videos & Fun, sort of close to the bottom. Points add up faster, because I think they are worth 150 points. Speaking of points, I turned some of mine in to receive very well made mini halter. I picked the biggest size which will fit a regular size colt or pony. Such nice colors, I received 2 of them.
You might not believe this but temps outside were actually 12 above!! TEmps inside the house still not much above 53, pipes are hot water temps are very high, but for some reason not heating the house good. Mike is going to see if he can get whole of the dealer this morning.

Hi Deacon, here's a vote for ya. Well another really cold windy day! High was about 14F with a windchill of 04F. So needless to say, nothing happened with doing anything with the horses. Paige was very quiet at lunch time, so I didn't have to tax myself to get her out. Everyone is in three layers in the barn. Paige seems happier to be extra warm, she's not a cold weather horse at all! Barn temp is staying about 36 inside with the poor infrared heater going none stop! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Deacon, here's a vote for ya. Well at 15F when we got up and a whopping 17F for a high today! Plus add in flurries all morning, not amounting to anything more than a little ground cover. Which seems to have disappeared already! But southeast of us, they are getting hit hard, some places in south Jersey already almost a foot of snow! Your turn! LOL! Needless to say, didn't do anything with the horses other than lunch and warm water. Football was on thank goodness! Probably the same for tomorrow, as the low tonight of 10F and high maybe of 20F tomorrow! Maybe have to just hand walk Paige to keep her sane! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Deacon, here's a vote for ya. Well the all time high today was about 27F. I yes did take it much easier on myself! We only got a dusting of snow last night, so that was good, didn't have to worry about snow removal. But they say more tonight, maybe a couple of inches this time. We'll see! So I got some hay to the barn, then Lunged Paige and did some shankless showmanship, she was working off my hands being in the right area and my body language. She did great! The free lunged Indy and then Bullseye. Then gave everyone hay and fresh water for lunch and called it a day. Probably the same routine for tomorrow, just hoping I don't have to plow the driveway!

Chilly cold day, never got above freezing. Bo is snug in her blanket and is staying in the shed. Everyone got extra feed and hay. The water heater is doing a great job in Bo & Jazz's pen, will have to carry water out tonight and tomorrow for Cisco & the calves. Had a little snow flurry awhile ago, wasn't supposed to get this far south. Will be in the 70's by Tues. Will be going up to try out the MFT mare this week.

Hi Deacon, here's a vote for ya. Well I just hope I didn't push myself too hard today! I had a few errands to run in town, so Honey got to be a happy dog and go for a ride! When I got home I over did it by buying 30 units of eco-wood for the wood stove, had to unload them and stack them. Then had lunch and my meds. Went to the barn and Lunged Paige and the lunged Indy. Bullseye is still on a holding pattern! LOL! Then heard the weather forecast and we have a couple of inches of snow moving in tonight. So that added filling 6 boxes with wood and stacking them in the garage so I have fast access to dry wood! Got done and said, I feel pooped, took a 90 minutes nap. Feel better now! And I did have my scarf up over my mouth to keep breathing in warm air, as it was only 28F degrees! I really hate winter! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Another cold vote this morning!! Never got too warm yesterday, seen -5 yesterday afternoon, but the sun was out for a bit. This morning was -20, but hardly any wind. By Sunday afternoon temps should start raising, well at least above 0. Horses are happily munching on their hay, which by digesting will keep them warm.

Giving Sadie her week of psyllium pellets. With all the rain and the ground being wet, I know she's in need of her monthly treatment. I make it a point to keep up with it. I think I may be a little behind on worming. Will get that taken care of, today. Had the farrier over before all the rain hit. Just need to ride her. Love and a vote. <3
