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!

is it winter yet???
The thing with Sterly's breathing is due in part to scar tissue in her lungs from a respiratory virus years ago, that ended her racing career. Lungs don't regenerate. Over the years it has gotten a bit worse, at times like season change and high humidity and high UV. She is for sure a Canadian horse she loves her winter, bring on the cold. She looks like a grizzly bear and she can breath, does it get any better... Ventipulimin is a bronchodilator, it opens up the airways, it is used for horses that have COPD or heaves or even asthma, keep in mind that Sterly is not a complainer, so we have to watch her closely, what you will see is, flared nostrils and short quick shallow breaths, get her in where it is cool with the big fan on her and she settled back to normal within 10 minutes. I only use the meds if she can't settle on her own. I'm sure the Cushings does not help matters, 'cause she has all that extra hair...I trimmed her this summer, but this year it just grew back pretty much as soon as it was gone, I have to prepare, everyday I still have her is a blessing, Left a vote, Love Donna Lee

LONG WEEKEND, YEAH...
Good Morning, I had lots of OT this week, my hands are killing me...I'm still playing catch up from last winter when Trevor was with us, I'm not complaining but, we heat with propane and it was the coldest winter in 22 years, plus propane prices went up 40% plus Trev was cold and so we kept the house warm for him, as a result we were $1206 over budget on heat. It has to be paid by September 1, so the new budget can start, do I need OT?? Yes I do. Charlie and Sterly are good, we will have a nice ride today, this is a long weekend, yippee. we voted, Love Donna Lee

LEFT A VOTE, THANKS FOR YOURS
Yesterday was a better breathing day for my Sterly Girly. She has had this issue forever, actually she got a lung virus as a two year old when she raced. It was bad enough to end her racing career, she was pretty good, from a very good bloodline. But as Dr. Cook said it was never going to be a problem for what I wanted her to do. As a younger girl, she was a bit "weazy", but as a "old girl" it is down right difficult to breath, as always, she never complains. I swear if all horses were like her, everyone would have a horse.

The weather is nice, The rain here has dried up. Bugs are crazy, though. Put ant bait around the outside of Sadie's corral and put her nosy, into everything butt, back in. She's a busy one. She got into the other shed and drug out the containers Austin put in there. He took them out of the tack shed to make room to store hay. She watches everything and waits for a chance to plunder. Lots of love and a vote.

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS:
"Horses first, The rest Later!"

Fancy leaves a vote for you this morning.

Fatima has gone to a home where she will be working with teenagers that are learning to ride. The lady spent an evening with us to evaluate Fatima and this lady saw potential in Fatima. The next day, the lady came back for Fatima. Fatima did not want to go. I called when I thought they arrived home to check on her and Fatima was fine.
I did not have the same feelings of betrayal with Fatima as I felt when I watched Trigger leave. I felt happy Fatima would be getting some attention. I still miss Trigger but I am happy he is really loved by the small children. I have an invitation to visit him. I think I want to go one day during his lessons. I would love to see him with the children.

Have a safe and blessed weekend.
Love Fancy and Frances

SOAKED SUPERVISORS IN ALS ICE BUCKET CHALLENGE
Good morning my friends, all is well here in hot, humid Ontario. This is pretty much the worst couple of weeks of the summer, it is OK for me, but poor Sterly Girly has such a hard time breathing, inside with her fan and I actually gave her a couple pumps of Ventipulimin yesterday. My last week of vacation is in September, we love early fall. Much nicer for riding. Have a great weekend, we left a vote. Love Donna Lee

Because of the flooding north of us, the river, close to my house, flooded, Tuesday night. I didn't see the water until I accidentally drove through it. Car's been fine until I drove to work, Friday. After I parked the car and went in, the car caught fire and is totalled. Devastated, heartbroken, but okay. A couple of people think it may have been a short in the wiring. Thank God that Austin was able to pick me up. Car's still in the parking lot at work. Rick won't get home until Wednesday. He's on vacation. Sending love as always and a vote. p.s. No word on the horses that were washed away in the flood.

We are having some beautiful weather here. We get afternoon showers off and on but nothing drastic. It helps keep the grass growing. I'm remembering our dear sweet Lollipop today. Lolli was euthanized on August 23, 2012. It has been two years already. Of course her little boy Ace reminds us so much of Lolli. I know she is in a better place, but she will remain in our hearts forever. Leaving a vote in her memory today.

We've had a lot of rain and flooding here in Arizona. We're okay here, but some towns, north of Phoenix, weren't so lucky. New River, Arizona, was hit so hard, pets and horses were washed away. I saw, on the news, that 2 of the horses drowned and women on horseback were searching for the other 2. I haven't heard if they were found, yet. So heartbreaking. Sadie's fine. We've had rain, hard Thursday morning, but no flooding at my house. Sadie's out of her corral, because it's slippery and mucky. To know Sadie, is to know she's happy. She was at the backdoor begging for carrots. Of course, she got some. Hope you're all doing well. Leaving love and a vote.

FEELS LIKE FALL, ALREADY...
Good Morning, I don't want to keep going on and on about the kicking, it has improved, but not all gone yet. I have given this a lot of thought. One thing I read is that if they are not getting enough exercise they can start this vice. I think last summer when I was off with my arm surgery, may have been the start. I'm just so mad at myself for not paying more attention...I'm researching joint supplements, 'cause I have to assume he has hurt himself some, I'll talk to Dr. C, any suggestions?

I rode both sing and peach this morning! worked peach on getting "in front of my leg" by trotting slow, then faster, then slow then faster...giving her a pop with the whip if she ignored my leg. sing was full of it! at age 20 she still gets bold and powerful. tried to have a bucking fit but hasn't really ever figured out how to buck cause I keep her head up. lol. bathed and conditioned a few tails so they're looking better. used the water rake on the 4 horses.

Spangle's Story:

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS:
Here is a good night vote for you.

I have had a lot of people interested in Trigger this week. I have not been in the house much. That is why I have not been on the computer.

The events of 8/12/2014:
A kind lady adopted Trigger to help out at her children's riding facility. I am happy and sad at the same time. She led him to her trailer and he tried to get back to me. I felt so bad. I felt like I was betraying him. She led him to the trailer and he looked in and then looked back for me. Wow. He has never paid me any attention. He only loved after my little Cowboy till now. I felt so bad. I told her just ask him to go on, he will. He always tries to do what you ask him. She kindly asked him and he went. She tied him up and the stallion divider was closed. Trigger watched out of the side vents and neighed back to us as I watched him disappear. I turned to go back into the yard and I had to stop and try not to cry. But I cried anyway. I will miss that little guy. The best horse I have ever been around. Well, now he has the chance to help some wonderful children learn to love. I am happy, and still sad.
It has been a hectic week for us.

I have two people interested in Fatima. Hopefully someone will want to adopt her and work with her.

I believe I will be freed up by Thursday and be back online.
Have a blessed day.
Love from Fancy and Fatima and Frances

Sadie likes to rub on things, corral panels, her shade, the fence around the property, etc. She gets scrapes and scratches. I put Wonder Dust on the palm of my hand to pat it on some of her boo boos. She snorted and blew it all over me. I, then, had to catch her to put the dust on her. Getting some spray, Wednesday. Leaving love and a vote.
