How We Met

I had begged my parents for a pony and so finally my dad took me to a horse and tack auction.While we waited for the tack to sell we looked at all the horses and ponys.After a couple hours they finally started selling the horses.When Dakota came into the arena I told my dad to bid for him.The bidding went up a ways until my dad and 1 other guy were the last bidders.the auctioneer stared at us waiting for my dad to bid.My dad thought about it for a minute and then he nodded.I could hardly believe it I finnally had a pony!

Sadie's rough on fly masks. She gets into whatever she can. Another horse would be someone to fight with. Lol. She's expensive enough, too, but worth it. Leaving you all love and a quick vote.

I had to stop by the store, after work and buy another fly mask. Sassy Miss Sadie is rough on them. I don't like having to keep her beautiful face covered, but the flies here are bad. Got to keep her pretty eyes protected. Aren't horses some of the most gorgeous creatures? Love and a vote.

MY PROBLEM CHILD....
Good morning, first, I'm sorry if I missed anyone yesterday, HC has been so S L OW. It took forever to do my blogging. Second Cookie came around yesterday and did teeth, yippee, Sterly did not require the power float, she was looking good, he is generally p;eased with her, Charlie did well with his float also, however, my boy has developed a vice and I wonder if anyone has a suggestion....at night in his stall, he stands next to Sterly's half door and he kicks the wall (wood), it is hard to describe, not directly behind, but the wall that he is standing parallel to. I'll get a picture this morning and post it. Dr. Cook is worried, me too, that he will eventually injure his hocks, he does it on both sides, depending on which direction he is facing. HELP. David suggested fastening rubber matting to the wall to absorb the shock. Dr. Cook said, like any vice, it is sometimes very difficult to stop once they have made it a habit. We had a nice ride yesterday, hope to today before the rains come, all week....We voted, Love Donna Lee

LEFT A VOTE, THANKS FOR YOURS
Good Morning all, the forecast is for rain, grrrrr, it is suppose to be nice tomorrow. Charlie and I had a nice ride yesterday after work, it was not too hot, Charlie can't stand the flies, he gets so distracted, plus he is so thin skinned, they bite and he is such a baby. I have a bit of an update on Trevor, we are so happy, his Petscan was good, still shows lots of inflammation in neck and throat area, but they think that is residual from all the radiation, the lymph nodes are clear, that is good, right? His blood work was excellent and altho we understand that the tumor is still there, his oncologist says he is right where she wants him to be, next check up 3 months, hallelujah. Have a great weekend, we left a vote, Love Donna Lee

RAIN, RAIN GO AWAY!!! Nothing but the rain going on here. Everyday this past week it has rained and more expected this week. We had 5 and 1/2 inches on Friday, the pasture was flooded. Water has gone down now. Farrier did the horses hooves on Thursday. I had a pretty scary experience on Tuesday. I was headed to work and right before I made it there I started feeling strange. I made it to work but felt really hot, sweating and dizzy. I couldn't get out of my truck. I called the office for help. They sent the EMT's out to check on me. Called an ambulance and rushed me to the emergency room. I was diagnosed with heat exhaustion and dehydration. Needless to say I have been drinking lots of water and GatorAde now. That was scary!! Leaving a vote for ya.

DROPPED BY TO SAY HELLO
Remember about my luck...well, we just got all tacked up ant started out to the ring, and yup, you guessed it, rain, what gives, it was just spitting, so we stayed out for half an hour anyway. The rest of the day was off and on drizzle. That is not what the the weatherman said. David made the letters out of feed tub lids and screwed them on to stakes, I'll tell him you all think it looks good. Charlie and I started dressage a couple of summers ago, remember I didn't ride last summer due to my arm, hope we have a good season this year. I can't afford a lesson every week, so I bought some MP3 download lessons from Jane Savoie's website, they are super. Talk soon, Love Donna Lee

HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND.....
Good Morning all, I managed to get thru the first week after vacation. The weather was just stupid this week, cold mornings, warm afternoons, HOT late afternoons and 3 days of showers in the late afternoon. I said before this full time job is gettin' in my way of fun time. No ride this week, and had to be careful of the rich grass because of the humid and wet conditions. We will have a ride this morning before it gets hot. Then maybe run the vacuum over and sit is the sun with a book, eh, sounds good to me. David made some dressage letters for my riding ring, I added a couple of pics, Love that man... We voted today, Love Donna Lee

Storm hit hard about 11pm Sunday night. Heavy rain, thunder and multiple lightning. Beautiful! Our power was out for about 2 hours. Praising sweet Jesus that it's now on. Corral's a mucky mess. I let sassy butt out. She's free to plunder and get into things that are none of her business. She should be one happy butt for the next couple of days. Lol. Our water pressure's fixed, too. God is so good! Love and a vote.

Scruffy always barks at Sadie, wanting her to play, when I let her out of her corral. Sadie bolted out of her corral, Wednesday, head down and chased him away. So funny. Poor dog. He ran to his doghouse. She got to enjoy freedom until she got into the shed, again, and pulled things out, making a mess. Trying to figure out how to make the shed Sadie proof. It's a rubbermaid and she pulls the doors off. Too smart. Lol. Love and a vote.

CHARLIE KEEPS SHOES....
Good Morning, well the visit from the nutritionist was interesting to say the least...the good news is, I'm doing everything right as far as feed for Charlie. The bad news is, in order to go barefoot, here is what Marc does with his TB's, and before I try to explain this, keep in mind that this is a L O N G process, it won't happy overnight. He basically forces the hoof to become strong by OVER stimulation and corrective trimming, meaning, he lets them chip, he let's them bruise and even abscess if necessary, the over stimulation comes from the rigorous training, the pounding, the running, not just lolly gagging around the pasture. I know it sounds like cruel and unusual punishment, but it works for his racehorses. People at the track are always asking him "what is your secret? how can your horses run barefoot?" He said this is not for everyone, you must be committed to the work, and be prepared for the set backs, but when you get there you have a STRONG hoof. After a lot of thought, I realize, this is not for Charlie, he is not a working racehorse anymore, he is my pal, and it will be shoes for him. Have a great day, we left votes, Love Donna Lee

"Honor lies in the mane of a horse." (Herman Melville)

Quick vote and I am off to begin my day. I plan to rest. LOL This holiday really wore me out. My family came to our house. My 7 year old nephew rode Trigger and I wanted to ride Fancy, but I am not quite ready, so I did not.
Trigger is still with us. I have had lots of interest in him. I had one family come to look at him but I discovered they wanted him for a lady to ride. I hope someone will want him for a child to ride. I am kind of partial to him going to a home with a child.

Hope you had an awesome 4th celebration.

Love Fancy & Frances

RIDE OR COOK?...DAH!
Day 2 of my vacation. I only have one week right now and I booked another week in Sept. I am entitled to 4 weeks, however after being off work for 7 months, I have only got enough money in my vacation "pot" for 2 weeks, boo hoo. We had showers and tstorms off and on yesterday, but it cleared around 5PM, so at 6PM I headed to the barn just as David said, "are you cooking?" I said "ride or cook?" sounds like a no brainer to me....have a great day, Love Donna Lee

It was so humid here, Monday. I cleaned Sadie's water trough, filled it and then wet her down to cool her off. It rained twice. A total of about 5 minutes in all. Would love to live somewhere where it actually rains. Greenery would be a wonderful bonus. Sadie would love a pasture filled with green grass. Love and a vote.
