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!

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

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS:
"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.

HAPPY 4TH OF JULY TO YOU AND YOUR FAMILY!!!

Voted for you.
I found an old Independence day edit for Fancy's profile photo. I sure would love to ride, but it is not safe right now :(

I did delete Fatima's page because I added her onto the page with Trigger. Cowboy wants to ride motor bikes now so, Trigger is for sale and I have my easy entry horse cart for sale too.

Do enjoy a wonderful holiday with your family and friends. Most of all stay safe.

A VERY BAD DAY....
OMG, yesterday was such a bad day. I turned them out on grass early about 6:30 right after their breakfast. All was well, I looked outside about 8:30, Charlie was just FRANTIC, he was wild and totally lathered, he was running wildly in the pasture, I went to get him, David helped, I got him in his stall. He was drenched from head to toe, and could not settle. Just circling in his stall. So an immediate call to Dr. Cook. He told me to give a small dose of tranquilizer, it would take about 20 minutes to work, report in an hour, that helped to settle him but he was still agitated, he would take a bite of hay, then circle, he was wearing a path in his stall. Even tho he was not showing classic symptoms of colic, we gave some anti gas meds, waited an hour, a bit calmer, but still off, then we gave a dose of ompeprezole(ulcer med) turned him back out, but even outside, he would take a bite of grass, then walk around, take bite and walk around, just not relaxed. Finally we gave 10cc's banamine and within 15 minutes he was grazing peacefully, looking like another horse.... I have said this before, our Canadian weather is hard on horses, this week has been particularly bad, cool nights, hot days, and Tstorms with lots of humidity. Dr. Cook said they had several gas colic calls this week. What thru him off was Charlie did not look like typical colic. I was instructed one small flake of wet hay overnight, and update in the morning, David checked him at about 10PM, he looked quiet, but he had eaten some. I went out at 5AM. He had 4 nice poops, and he ate every bite of his hay and was ready for his breakfast bucket. I love that horse, I love Dr. Cook. We left a vote, have a great day, Love Donna Lee

Charlie is doing well, I'm OK too...
It has been a busy week, this full time job is really getting in the way of my fun time...I posted a pic of Charlie's hoof. Greg came by on Wednesday even tho he has a serious concussion, he wanted to help us out, he has to take it easy for a while yet. The nutritionist is coming out early July, in the meantime, they told me to top dress ground flax, according to our hay analysis and Charlie's diet with his Biotin supplement he is getting all his required vits and mins. Greg says he is also just sensitive, he bruises easily and does not think that there is much else we can do, he will HAVE to have shoes. Trevor is doing well, still slow on the recovery side, his mouth is still quite tender, he has really lost the "taste" for food and finds he has to force himself, the weight gain is also slow, he should have stayed with us, I could have "porked" him up...this is a long weekend in Canada and I'm going to enjoy my 3 days off, we left votes, talk soon, Love Donna Lee

I let Sadie out of the corral Monday afternoon. She enjoyed several hours of freedom. I gave her cold carrots, when I put her up, brushed her and scratched her itchy butt. My fingernails were full of horse butt dirt. Lol. Since she's rubbing the hair off of her tail, I rubbed some M-T-G (Mane-Tail-Groom)on it and her itchy butt,too. That stuff is amazing. Leaving you all love and another vote.

If it wasn't for bad luck, I'd have no luck at all
So, here is the latest on Charlie's hoof. Greg had the accident the other day, his Dr. has put him off work for a few days, seems he can't focus one eye...do you need two eyes to tap on a couple of shoes??? Sorry, yes, of course I am concerned for his health, but Charlie is in trouble her...we have a huge shortage of GOOD farrier's, so it is out of my hands, he is going to try for the first of the week, in the meantime, Charlie is tender, but not lame, We walked yesterday, but remember how dramatic my boy is, so today he can just rest, this is sooooo frustrating, I should be a farrier...Dr. Cook wants the nutritionist to come and check him out. When he was here last year, it was for Sterl May. Dr. Cook says there may be something else that we can do to help with Charlie's poor quality hoof wall. He is already on a hoof supplement. This nutritionist is also a TB breeder and racer, and his horses race barefoot, so Dr. Cook says it is NOT just crappy TB feet. This will be interesting if nothing else. We left a vote, have a great day, Love Donna Lee

Watered a tree in my front yard, last night, and accidentally disturbed a nest of baby jackrabbits. One died and my neighbor took the other one to try to care for. Would've just left them alone, but my cats were checking them out. I feel so bad for them. I love animals and baby bunnies are so adorable. Sadie's doing well. She keeps yelling at me. Wants out of the corral. Maybe later. Love and a vote.

Well no the horses have never been near an electric fence before. We still haven't put them in the new pasture yet but we did also run the electric wire above our existing pasture fence to keep them from eating over the fence. Well of course my Lucky boy was the first to get shocked when he tried eating over the fence. He jumped back and took off running, and all the other horses ran with him. Don't think he has tried that again. When we put them in the new pasture we will be there to watch them at first. We plan to only let them out in the new area while we are there. Yesterday we had some really heavy, heavy rains here. It was terrible weather. Today the sun is shining! Left a vote for ya.
