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!

Let’s begin where it all started. I have never been involved with horses before. The closes I’ve been to a horse was when I was young, my cousins in Kenner had a horse. I rode on the back of it once or twice. Then in my later years, my sister got a horse. We were both married with children by then. I was in my late 40’s when I got Susie. Although Susie was not my horse. She was purchased for my daughter. My husband purchased Susie on June 9, 2006, because my daughter had been on a trail ride with some friends and decided that she wanted a horse. We saw an ad in a Quick Quarter, a weekly advertisement. So we went to take a look.~~~

Have a happy 4th of July weekend! Left a vote.

Please vote for Susie and Friends for August HOTM!

This run for HOTM is going to be for Susie. She deserves the recognition since my world of horses all started with her. Without her I would not have known the joy and the beauty of horses. So the next 30 days I will tell her story.

Hot and humid. Thunderstorm came thru early this AM, just enough rain to make it a bit muddy to ride. Dried up this afternoon, but way to hot to ride (or do anything outside in the afternoon). Did get some obstacles moved out of 1/3 I didn't mow yesterday, so hoping to ride and mow tomorrow.

Whiskey’s mane & tail change colors several times in the year by going lighter then darker. His body color changes as well. He truly loves his bath time and grooming, he trailers well in any type I load him in, and will load without heisting at all. He is also my bareback horse. Perfect back for it so if I don’t feel like putting the saddle on I can always just get myself up on him and go at any time. He is the type that will come to you every time from the field or anywhere. I guess that’s the treat hound in him lol.
* The Rocky Mountain Horse breed originated in the United States in the late 1800s, in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains of eastern Kentucky. At the time of its beginnings, there was no understanding of the need to document anything about these horses. The people living in this region were quite unaware that one day their utility horses would become the foundation of a special breed of horse. The existence of these horses was practically a secret for many years to all but the inhabitants of this region.
Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

My Whiskey boy has the antics of a comedian! He is so funny but yet so very gentle and lovable. He is in fact my “treat Hound”. He will do absolutely anything in the world to get a treat, cookie or carrot or anything to eat. If you show him how to do something and he knows you are going to give a treat he will try until he learns it to in fact get that treat. I have had so much fun with him. He will check me for a treat and if I don’t have one he will almost shrug me off with a turned head tossed in the air as if he is saying “I’m done with you, off you go child” .
* The history of the Rocky Mountain Horse from 1890 to the latter part of the 1900s carries little or no documentation and few facts that can be proven beyond the shadow of doubt. Everyone who personally witnessed the breed's beginnings (back to the 1800s) is deceased, and we have been left with only verbal history passed down from generation to generation. Thus, all that can be recorded at this point in time are the stories recollected by living descendants. Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

I continue to work with Whiskey and every now and then I still put the O ring on him and to keep him sharp. He really does well each time we ride. I am not all that good with all kinds of bits. I have not mastered the bit world-well, probably not a lot of horse things but I am on my journey and heading that way. I can ride Whiskey & Deacon both with just halters on but have never tired bridle-less yet but that is another goal of mine. The more we rode the better Whiskey got at reining. The more miles and trails the easier it got on me and him. I discovered Whiskey loves the water. We can get in a few minutes but I have to move him out or he will try to lie down, but I can take him right back in and then he settles to stand, doesn’t swim yet with me. We are still working toward that. Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

Few things about Whiskey: The 1st few times I rode Whiskey my arms were wore out and tired. I was thinking “man what in the world”. He did not and could not Neck rein. He was very hard in the mouth, no flex in his neck but Karla & Tim told me he needed that kind of work. Tim felt he didn’t ride him in collection and so on. He was Tim’s first horse. We would get under the canopy of the trees on the trails and he would do great with my seat aids which I was happy about. That is how I ride him, with my seat and leg aids. I guess we all are supposed to do that RIGHT!!!! I then started planning my next few months of teaching him to neck rein. I just went back to the beginning and put him in an “O” ring snaffle and took it from there. Every day his personality would shine and he entertained Cliff & me with his antics! Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

Sorry for not being active for the past few days, I do log on every morning at 3AM after I feed the guys, I like to check out HOTD and vote for HOTM if it is a friend. Not much new around here, I have had a chance to ride some, the helps with the depression. We got one of the pastures reseeded and it looks like rain tomorrow, yeah. Just 'cause I'm not here, I still think of you all, thanks for the positive feedback. We will get thru this tough time, we left a Sunny Sunday vote, Love Donna Lee

Sorry I haven't been on in a while. I have been dealing with lots of different things, with my Mom, my sister and my daughter. So much happening right now. The weather is terrible. Lots of rain everyday. Our pasture flooded on Tuesday, however the water has gone down now, but the rain has not stopped. Hope you have a great weekend, if possible.

OMG, this is the coldest night of the winter so far, and I know I have mentioned how much I HATE winter, this temp is without the wind chill, you can't even imagine how much I do not want to go outside. I went to feed at 4AM, both Sterly and charlie had frost on their whiskers....I guess that answers my question as to whether they go out today or not, looks like NOT...we left a vote, Love Donna Lee PS our wind chill is -40 C

I don't like it when I can't log into HC, I really miss my friends when it goes crazy like it has the last few days!!! I had an extreme HORSEY day yesterday! I did all things horse’s other than making dinner. Everyone had a spa day. I washed manes and tails and brushed and groomed. I was so tempted to shave faces and hocks and such but I had to remind myself that it is still winter not spring! I had a ride on both Deacon & Whiskey. We did our little 30 minute work out that I do when I don’t haul out to trail ride. Then they got their spa treatment and they all got wormed as well. Have a wonderful day! Whinnies & hugs =)

it was 68 yesterday and of course the winds were horrible so you really couldn't do much with the horses but watch them graze~I love that anyway. I mowed a few high spots in the yard, I have a few more to do after work today but hoping the winds aren't to bad so maybe I can slip a ride in! Have a wonderful Sunday...

Ω Deacon thanks all of you for your amazing support during his run! Again love all my HC friends and horses. I took Whiskey Tuesday for a ride at the lake. He hasn’t been out there for a while and we had a cold but nice ride. I got my birthday gift early and it is a beautiful new saddle pad. I will post under Whiskey in a little while. Deacon had the day off! Wed. & Thursday (today as well) is so cold and wet out. Won’t clear out until tomorrow afternoon. Don’t know when I will ride again. Whinny’s hugs & love ~ Stay safe & warm Ω

Hi all. Christmas was nice. I got money to put toward a hay shed, and Sadie got a ball. It's taking some time for her understand it, but she'll love it when she does. Weather's extra cold here overnight, 28* at 4:30 this morning. Sadie's water trough had a layer of ice at 8am. It's in the 60's during the day. Suppose to be cold through next weekend. I hope not.

Still battling this cold. The worst of it is over. I didn't ride. It was late when Stephanie made it over. Almost dark. When Stephanie rode Sadie, I went inside, because I was too much of a distraction. Sadie behaves much better when she doesn't have an audience. She concentrates on what she's suppose to be doing. As soon I walked outside, she tried to come to me. Stephanie said she's a momma's girl. I say she's spoiled. Lol. Have a blessed weekend. Love hugs and a vote.
