SURGEON GENERAL'S WARNING: Horses have been found to be expensive and addictive, and have further been shown to impair the use of common sense in humans!

I found this to be true one week ago today. I was washing my gelding about 9pm when biting insects attacked us. The horse over-reacted by pulling back and realizing he's tied to a post, he freaked out big time! He snapped a wooden post, set 2 ft down in concrete, off at ground level, hitting me in my leg, knocking me down, and continually pulling the fence over-top of me! He wanted to run but I yelled "whoa, whoa, whoa!" He stopped, I detached the "safety" strap that was supposed to release, and put him in the stall.
Next day I went to the doctor because of the severe swelling and the fact I couldn't bend my knee but about 10%. Nothing broken (yay) but MRI revealed a torn MCL (medial collateral ligament) and damage to the patella! I haven't yet seen my Ortho doc (appt. on Tuesday).
The horse knew he hurt me because he wouldn't look at me for two days. I'd love on him but he kept to himself. My husband asked the horse if he was sorry he hurt momma and he shook his head yes. I talked to him and again, he looked away. Saddened my heart.
Be careful everyone! Freak accidents DO happen!!

VOTED, Hi! Fancy and Trigger here ")

Fancy loves her watermelon! I divided some watermelon between Fancy and Trigger. Fancy ate all of her treat. Trigger did not eat all of his. He left the rind in the dirt. First time I ever seen any horse leave any part of watermelon.
Finally enjoying days with more sun than rain. Sounds like most of us are enduring heat now. It is almost August and we are just now having HOT days. Maybe we wont have too many hot days.

We have certainly been busy. Family trips are fun but the long rides can be exhausting. Funny thing is, if I were going on a horsey related trip, I would be so excited, the exhaustion would feel good. LOL! I think today’s thunder showers helped me to feel rested once again. Fancy and Trigger are doing fine too.

One of our friends has seen how good natured Fancy is on our rides, and he mentioned to me that Fancy’s high strung behavior in the woods last week, could have been because she sensed something in the woods that I was not aware of. Lately we get a lot of creatures coming into the yard from the woods. There are rabbits, ground hogs, foxes, raccoons, etc. Maybe she did sense something. I do know she has never been that high strung on any of our rides. And maybe she just felt a bit hyper. I may never know.

Last week, Cowboy was sitting on Trigger, waiting on Fancy and I, when a butterfly flew by, grazing Cowboy’s cheek with it’s wing. As Cowboy was telling me how soft the butterfly’s wing was, I could hear the amazement in his voice. I told him he had been blessed that day. That was one of the sweetest kid moments ever. Even though I can never tell him that, because he is such a BIG boy now. You know, the pre-teen thing is going on “)

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS, All I Need to Know in Life I Learned From My Horse: Love those who love you back, especially if they have something good to eat.

How are you doing? I am going to write a pure copy and paste message because I am so far behind with my HC blogs that you wouldn't believe it.

A lot has happened since I last blogged properly on here and I can't promise to be on as much as I would like.

Eddie has settled in really well. He and Pippin are great friends but boys will be boys and because of their giant size difference, 2000lbs vs 200lbs, they cannot be alone in the same field. So, Eddie has a pen within Pippin's huge day pen and they get at each other through the fence.

Eddie is the tall silent type and his previous owner has never heard him make a noise. Well, now that he's here he whinnies if we take Pippin for a walk and leave him behind. He nickers low and sweetly when Pippin is put in the pen near him. They are cute together.

We've had a couple of tough moments, health-wise, with both of them. Eddie had several episodes of choke earlier this year leading up to a major case which almost killed him. The vet actually thought he wouldn't make it and we were discussing the dreaded topic of carcass disposal…

Well, the long and short of it is, he's completely and absolutely healthy and looks the best he's ever looked. He's fit and shiny and has a spring in his step. That is, when he's not sleep walking which he'll do on a hot day like today.

3 weeks ago Pippin had surgery for the removal of 2 large enteroliths from his colon. They weigh about 3lbs and I've kept them as souvenirs. He's on the road to recovery and is also doing super well.

For a couple of months he was rapidly going downhill and we couldn't figure out what was wrong with him. Using a portable x-ray the vet discovered the stones. They are so huge that she actually screamed when spotted them on the radiograph. It's a wonder that he was still eating and pooping fine. Not sure how that was even possible.

Anyway, that's what's up here. I will try (really I will!) to write more often.

I hope you had a great weekend! Leaving a vote.

Hello, Fancy has left a terrific Tuesday vote for you. Thanks for the blogs and votes you have left. We will read our blogs after we finish returning votes ;)

Yesterday Fancy & Trigger got 2 fresh rolls of 2013 hay! I love the smell too! I remember when I was a child, my father's cows always had that very same smell. Just like a fresh roll of hay!

About 2 days ago I brushed Bandit, Siberian Husky, I got most of his winter coat out. Since then the physical condition of my wrist and elbows, have convinced me that I need to schedule a return visit with the doc. I will try to muster up enough bravery to do this before summer ends.

If I am not online sometimes, that is because I am trying to continue my daily task and manage this issue.

Our horse club has a Family Fun Day planned for this coming Saturday. I am supposed to be hosting the event. I think I have all needed items and now I plan to organizing these things in the trailer. We are expecting 60% rain/storms that day. Maybe we will be able to have some fun that morning before it rains. We have decided that this time, Cowboy will take Trigger and Fancy will stay at home. That way if it rains or storms, all of our equipment and one horse will be easier to manage :)

HI, here is a vote. Just got home from a horse club meeting. I am glad I do not have to get up early, NO School!!! I asked my husband to give out the watermelon today because my wrist was tender and the melon weight was a bit much today. My husband gave all of it to
Fancy. He said Fancy loves watermelon so much like a special treat. Poor Trigger, he had none. Trigger came over and when he got no watermelon he went back to the hay. Next time I will give out the watermelon. I told my husband you have to split it between them.
Time for bed and we are still having rain showers every now and then.
Hav a peaceful night.

♥♡♥ Congratulations to our June 2013 HOTM Queen Sterl May!! Great job Donna Lee!!! Fancy Walk n That way ~ you were an awesome May HOTM! I had a crop duster spraying the hundreds of acres of cotton growing by our place. Had to change my plan! I went to the dollar store and the Food Mart 1st then took a ride after it was finished. On one side of us are hundreds of acres of corn that is 5’ or more and the other side cotton. I wasn’t sure if it was weed killer or insect spray; the wind was blowing it away from our area so that was GREAT. I rode the front area toward the main rode. Whiskey walked-grazed, walked and grazed!!! I don’t have much room to do anything else. Reached 94 but had a breeze. It was humid…

Voted :) Thanks so much for this surprise HOTM. Spring began a little rough for Fancy with her heel bulb injury and myself with the wrist issues. Our HorseChannel friends helped to make May 2013 one of the best birthday months ever.

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS: All I Need to Know in Life I Learned From My Horse: You can never have too many treats.

I hand walked Fancy this morning, while she ate grass. Today was my Siberian Husky, Bandit’s first birthday. Fancy gave Bandit a little nuzzle for his first birthday.
I am glad Fancy is out of the stall because, Fancy makes sure Trigger poops along the back fence line. I appreciate that, because it is easier to clean up with it all in one area. LOL. Fancy had to poop before I was done picking up and she pooped right on top of the poop pile that I had made. Now how considerate is that? What a doll :)

Hi JUSTICE
Here comes another rainy day vote, THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE SUPPORT, WE LOVE IT.
I just bet you are all thinking that finally everything is going my way and we all live happily every after.....not so fast. Mackie was without a doubt, a truly wonderful horse(please take a moment and read his"how we met"on his profile. He is ANGEL SASSY MAC. I think it best describes him to say that he was like a sick child, he was constantly struggling with something and of course, we worked thru it all. When we had been in the barn almost 9 years and Mackie was 11, EVERYTHING started to go downhill fast. The barn owners had a change of heart about retirement and decided to sell the property. There I was with 3 horses and looking for a new home again. I thought of tons of possibilities, some you don't want to hear. The farm sold in 3 days, however, the new owner gave me until spring to move, that gave us almost 10 months to find a new home. In the meantime, MACKIE'S health deteriorated and on AUG 8/2007 at the University of Guelph EQUINE HOSPITAL, with me by his side until the end, he was euthanized due to heart failure. He was only 12. I can tell you, I miss him every day. So, it was just me Jackie and Sterl May again. TO BE CONTINUED. LOVE DONNA LEE & STERLY GIRLY

Hi JUSTICE
RAINY DAY VOTES FOR ALL, My search began again, Sonya and I had 3 horses lined up to look at, none were close to home so we made a day of it. The first 2 were not even possibilities, I was tired, it was getting on in the day and I wanted to just go home, Sonya convinced me we had come this far, let's just go look. The directions were bad, we got lost, when we finally got there I was in a bit of a cranky mood. Everything changed when we were introduced to Sassy Mac. He was so handsome (but I had learned that is no reason to pick a horse)His manners were excellent, I actually wondered for a minute if he was drugged, he wasn't, we spent several hours with him, hearing his history, his training, the personal medical reason the owner had to let him go. He was 8, 16hh and oh so sweet. I rode him, we video taped him, we came home to think it over. Mackie arrived the next week, Jackie and Sterly had a new friend and I had a horse to ride. Life was good again. One thing I have learned over the years, with horses, THERE IS ALWAYS SOMETHING, talk tomorrow, thanks for helping Sterly, love to all, DONNA LEE & STERLY GIRLY

Wow, this has been one long weekend. I was gone all day on both Saturday and Sunday. I spent most of Sunday with Skye. I got her moved to her new home, and she seems to like it. The farm she is at is beautiful!!! Silly girl can't keep her eyes of the cows... probable wants to boss them around too! Bossing the other horse in the corral with her it not working that well...LOL! Looking forward to getting to ride her today. I haven't ridden her since the end of April. Forgot to bring the camera when I moved her, but I plan to get some pictures today. I hope to be adding lots of new pictures over the summer. Here's a sunny vote!

ANOTHER LOVELY DAY COMING OUR WAY, WE LEFT BIG THANK YOU VOTES.
Once I got hurt, there really was no way for me to shake off the fear, and once BRAY was on to my fear, we were going nowhere together, I decided that although I really LOVED that horse, I didn't LIKE him very much. I sold him to a young woman at a large show barn, she had far more riding experience than me, plus she had a large support group around her. I was happy for BRAY, I really thought he would do well in that environment. He was such a handsome guy(his picture is a the bottom of the page)So, off he went to his new adventure. Now, here I was back a square one again, just me, Sterly and Jackie, there had to be a horse out there for me....Three weeks after I sold BRAY, I got a call from his new owner, he had an accident in his paddock, when he came in that night, he walked on 3 legs, refusing to put right hind on the ground. She got two veterinary opinions, both agreed after xray and ultrasound that the stifle muscle was torn, prognosis was hopeless. She chose to euthanize. She asked if I'd like to come and say good bye, because he had actually been my horse more than hers. It wasn't suppose to be like this, I had already said good bye once. I went, I cried, and I came home to Sterly. TOMORROW, LOVE DONNA LEE & STERLY GIRLY

Fancy's Perceptions: Happy Memorial Day! "A nation that does not honor it's heroes, will not long endure." (President Abraham Lincoln)

Have a lovely and safe holiday.

We have been very busy this past few days. Friday was spent cleaning for the show. Fancy and I participated in many 'new to us', events. The only problem we had was when a horse would come toward Fancy, Fancy would back away as if she was afeared. She was a little better with that by the end of the day. We came home with 7 ribbons. This time we did not place in any halter events. In our very first ever, showmanship class, we did not place because I went past the cone. Every thing else was right. The judge spoke with me about that. I learned something new.
Fancy got her very first ever first place! First place in the gaited class at that. And just to think, I don't know any thing about how to keep her in gait. But she did it! All of our other ribbons were third, fourth, and fifth. No second places for us this time. We participated in the timed events! That was fun! There was 300 total entries in this show. Our shows are growing! We got home late and I am still tired.
Today I had Fancy out grazing in the back yard while Trigger ate his dinner. I had this amazing feeling of how much I am blessed to share my life with this beautiful creature. I guess you know, I love my horse :)

I might be offline all day Monday. We plan to ride out early Monday morning. We will ride with Buttercup and Goldie. This may be one of the best birthday weekends ever. My Birthday is Monday and we will be celebrating Memorial day too! I will be very tired again.

Have a blessed night.

LEAVING A SUNNY SUNDAY VOTE. THANKS FOR THE SUPPORT.
The barn was done, safe and Sterl had her little companion, it was close to home,it was on my way to work, so I could stop at 4:30 in the morning and, for example if I thought I had left lights on, I could pop back over before bed to check. This next chapter is not one I'm very proud of. When Jackie and Sterl were settled in, I started looking for a horse to ride. I found Brazen Virtue, we called him Bray. I went against Dr. Cook's advise and bought him as a 3 year old, to be fair he was a peach at 3, but by the time he turned 5, he was an idiot. Bray was trotter bred Standardbred, he was a bit over 17hh, and he was gorgeous. Wrong reason to buy a horse....live and learn. When I started to have trouble with him, I did what I thought was right, I got help. I had 3 horses now and had them at home, I didn't have a lot of extra cash. I sent Bray off to training school, that helped some, but once back home he started to fall back into his bad habits. This sweet at 3 horse, turned into a 5 year old that tried "to kill" me, I rode him and was just glad every time I got off in one piece, I found I was making excuses not to ride, things like, it's too windy or too wet or I'm tired or he's too fresh. I finally admitted, that I was afraid of him. The last straw came early one cool spring morning, I was feeding, put out hay, Bray was fresh, I was between Bray and Jackie, out of the corner of my eye I saw the foot come up, I remember saying, "don't you dare" that was the last thing I remember, when I came too, I could not find my glasses, I don't think I knew what had happened, I managed to get to the phone and called David to come help me find my glasses. We went to the hospital, his kick caught me on the forehead, 17 stitches and a serious concussion. It was over for me and Bray. When I look back at what I know now, when I look at pictures from that time(today's profile shot, and one more at the bottom) in almost all the pics, Sterly was between Bray and Jackie, she never trusted him. I should have listened to her, she has never let me down, TO BE CONTINUED, LOVE YOU ALL, DONNA LEE & STERLY GIRLY

THANKS FOR YOUR SUPPORT....
GOOD MORNING ALL, we left votes on this sunny Saturday morning.
Clean up got under way, basically this property had been left about 15 years ago, the barn closed up the fences left to fall down, the house had been rented over the years and as you can see from the pics, the barn was used as a garbage dump. We had to literally hack the overgrowth away with machetes in order to get inside, we carted away at least half a dozen trailer loads of "junk". It took a good couple of months to get it ready to be a safe comfortable home for Sterl May, but thru all the work I stayed focused on my goal. Once she was settled and happy I would look for a horse to ride. The only issue was Sterl had never been alone and I worried about her stressing by herself, that is where "Jackie" entered the picture (today's profile shot) Our coach, Val had a few boarders, one owed back board, they had a horse and little Jackie, they came in the middle of the night and took the horse but left Jackie, Val gave him to Sterl May for company. Jackie was about 7 when we got him, part mini, part Shetland pony, about 9hh, but don't worry, he didn't know he was little. He became Sterl's "little side kick". Life was good. TO BE CONTINUED, THANKS FOR THE SUPPORT, LOVE DONNA LEE & STERLY GIRLY

Sorry I have not been very active. My family promised to clean Fancy's corral while I was under doc care. Well, Fancy's corral was only cleaned once during the first week I was down. It took a few hours, but I was able to clean up for my Fancy Thursday. The remainder of that day and night was very painful and I did not feel up to computing.
Today we had to get ready for our horseshow tomorrow! Guess What??? I had help! My husband helped me clean Fancy and he put the shavings in her stall. I was shocked!!! I hope Fancy stays clean til the morning. She is sparkling. I told my husband she should stay in the house with us tonight, because she was sooo clean. He did not share my thoughts on that one. LOL.

Have a beautiful weekend. We will be back soon!

Feels like winter is back in Ontario. We left chilly, windy votes for all.
The next stage of Sterl May story could go on and on, I'm just going to give you the highlights. Even tho we live in the country, we had no place to keep her, so I gathered my thoughts and started to look for somewhere she could call home. I did have some criteria, like it needed to be safe, preferably with some kind of companion, Sterl has never been alone, it needed to be close enough that I could get there daily to feed etc. my work day starts early and I did not want to be driving all over the country side before work every day. I put the word out every where, I asked neighbors, I literally started knocking on doors. It was not looking good, until finally someone told me about an old abandoned barn not far from where we lived. There was an old shack of a house on the property that was rented to a young man that farmed with his family, he kept the house as a place to get away from work and be alone. But the barn and pasture had been let go for about 15 years. I took a look at it and at first rejected the whole idea, way too much work involved. But after David and one of my brothers hacked their way through the overgrowth around the barn door, they said "this could work". I used my imagination, the barn had water and electric, it had a pasture. about 5 acres, it needed fencing, but I saw in my mind a safe peaceful home for my girl. I located the owners, I told them my story. It was like it was meant to be. These people owned this property and had planned that one day when they retire, they would build on this land, they where huge animal lovers and where touched by my dedication to Sterl May. They said "if you think that place will work for you, you are welcome to it" the only restriction was, if something goes wrong we don't want to hear about it, I was responsible for the clean up and fencing, and I had to get along with Robert, the tenant in the little house. WOO HOO, Sterl was getting a home, roll up my sleeves and get to work, TO BE CONTINUED, LOVE DONNA LEE & STERLY GIRLY

Hi JUSTICE
GOOD MORNING, We left you all a vote. Now that I had an answer although, not the answer I wanted, I have to admit that I did fall apart, there were lots of tears. Reaction varied at the barn, most were understanding and sympathetic but remember the lady that said I needed to "hit her harder", well she said "I don't know what you're crying about, you just sell her and get something else, it's not like you raised from a baby" I have never believed that animals were disposable, and I promised Sterl a home until the day she died. But, reality set in David said that I could not continue to pay board to go 4x a week to simply pat her, there was the wear and tear on the vehicle and the gas for all the travelling back and forth, for what, I can't ride her. I needed to THINK. bringing her home was not an option, we had no land or barn. I didn't know what to do, YET, but I knew I WAS NOT GETTING RID OF HER. Talk soon, Love Donna Lee & STERLY GIRLY
