We were looking for a horse and my coach was having a clinic. Afterwards Shorty's owners said she was for sale, so we tried her out.

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.

Leaving a vote for you. Have a great weekend!

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS: “A mother understands what a child does not say” (unknown)

Are you finally enjoying spring? We went out of town last night to help a friend. It was soo late when we returned I had to call it a night. Fancy is ready for fun. She lets me know she wants an outing by neighing to me when I go outside for any reason. I tried to get some help taking the cart out, but no help just yet. I am giving my mom flowers for Mother's Day, perennials that will come back for her to enjoy. She seemed to be happy about that. I am tired of being still and I am ready to get creative. LOL.
Have a peaceful night ♥

LITTLE COWBOY CLASS/ Word of the day: SHOULD MATURE OVER 16 HANDS: currently 14 hands, dam is 14.2, sire is 15.3 hands, every horse in pedigree back 18 generations is under 16 hands, but *this* horse will defy his DNA and grow.

Sassy Miss Sadie's doing good. She's keeping her fly mask on, but has torn holes in it. I dumped her water trough out to clean it and found her old fly mask in it, again. While I filled the trough with fresh water, she blew bubbles in it. So silly. Heat's hitting triple degrees next week. Time to buy another misting system. She pulled the other one down and chewed it in half. She's a busy one. Love and a vote.

HELLO! So my mom, Lena, has decided she want to run for HOTM, but, in order to do that she's going to need at least 600 votes! Now I think she misplaced them somewhere and I don't think we are smart enough to know where she put them. But by pressing a button at the top of my club horse account I'm pretty sure we'll be able to find them! Also if you do we'll return the favor! :)

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS: “Always drink upstream from the herd.” (unknown)

Fancy & Trigger had their farrier trip this week. Great news, the farrier said Fancy's heel looks normal and you can't even tell it was wounded! We can begin riding when it is not so muddy in the corral. I am going to ride her for short periods of time before we ride out. I want to be sure both Fancy and I are ready when we ride out. And we can use this time to get ready for the horseshow this month. I want to try our first time at showmanship. ♥

Sterl May was born and raised on a small but successful STANDARDBRED farm not far from my home. Standardbred racing is very big in this part of Ontario. She was quite good at the track, but at 4 years old she got a respiratory virus that ended her racing career. Roxanne, the lady that I eventually bought Sterl's from worked on that farm. Because racing is a business and not a hobby, Sterly had to go. Roxanne remembers the morning she was told to get Sterl May ready for the market truck. Roxanne had known and cared for her for 4 years and could not bear the thought of her going to market, so she bought her on a whim. That night after work she trailered her to a friends house and said "I bought a horse can I keep her here for now" Sterly spent the next 6 years there playing with her two new pasture pals. TO BE CONTINUED, thanks for the votes, we appreciate the support, left you one too, Love Donna Lee & Sterly Girly

Before I bought Sterl May(read her how we met story please),I used to lease a solid bred paint mare, at a local boarding stable not far from home. Her name was Fool Kat, I leased because as an adult getting back into riding, I wanted to be sure before I bought my own horse. The barn owners thought that I should buy a foal and raise it up. One of the other riders at the barn heard this and she said she knew of someone that had a horse for sale for not too much $$$ she mostly wanted a good home for this horse. The only thing was, she was a STANDARDBRED, that didn't mean anything to me. I went to meet her, and I will never forget the feeling I had when I walked into her paddock, she tuRned to look at me, THOSE EYES, THOSE BEAUTIFUL EYES, she still has those beautiful eyes, thanks for your support, we left a vote too. Love DONNA lEE

Hi Shorty, here's a vote for ya. What a great 5 days we had at the show. First let me tell ya, Indy is just great with his girls. Ella did very well with him in the Small Fry Showmanship, there's a video the mom posted on FB and I put it up on my home page also! Paige did very well for her first show of the season. It was a huge show. Rented out 240 plus stalls. All my classes had no less than 13 horses in them. And really broke to death horses! Paige placed anywares from 3rd to 5th in her halter classes. We got a couple of low end placings in showmanhip, two pilot errors on my part! OOPS! Karen rode Friday night in the pro class, but it was deep compatition, but Paige was good. I rode two classes later in the non pro and it was just as deep, I went against really broke to death compatition. We had a ways to go yet. Sunday was Paige's like Monday Mare day, so I didn't even waste my money showing her, we just schooled her in all the arenas. The circus out back didn't bother her at all, the bull riding across the field didn't entice her either. She was very calm about it all. So was Mr. Indy. Glad to be home, up everyday at 5:30 and not hitting the sack till 10 pm half the time. On the go all day, this ole'cowgirl is wooped! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondies.

Big hi to all. Jessica came out Wednesday with her boyfriend, David. Sadie was bad. While Jessica picked her hooves, Sadie yanked her back hoof away. She bucked a couple of times, too, when Jessica rode her. She did okay with me. The strap on the saddle pinched a bruise on the inside of my left knee. Shouldn't have worn shorts. Found the missing fly mask, too. Jessica and I dumped Sadie's water trough to clean it out, and there it was. It had sunk to the bottom of the trough. I didn't think to check there. Silly horse....Congratulations to Fancy Walk N that Way on winning May HOTM! Love and a vote.

Congratulations to our April HOTM, Angel HT...... Farrier came out Monday morning. Did a wonderful job on Sadie's hooves. He said her hooves are in great shape, very healthy. Austin and I took turns riding Sadie Monday evening. What an amazing ride. Sadie was so good. She was great at neck reining, too. Not one bit of fight from her. She stopped once, when Austin was riding, but as soon as he gave her a light tap on her behind with the riding crop, she was great for him, too. Leaving a big hug and a vote.

Hi Shorty, here's a vote for ya. First let thank you very much for standing by H.T. and voting him daily in his quest for HOTM! HE DID IT! I kept count of his starting and ending vote and he amassed 964 votes during his run. And one final favor, on the video's page, please go and watch "H.T. Tribute" it was done for him and I back then by Pippin's mom MS. She's the lady to give the credit to for the great video, I know you will enjoy it!
Lunged Indy today again, working on getting him ready for Ella to ride him and show him in showmanship at halter at the quarter horse shows this summer. Tomorrow's a Pagie day. Of course my trainer got me good today, she texted me and said that Paige was absolutely horribe today! I almost had a corenary over it. Two minutes later a new text comes, APRIL FOOLS, she was awesome! Wait till I see her tomorrow! Jokes gonna be on her! LOL! Marion and the blondies.

“The great Easter truth is not that we are to live newly after death – that is not the great thing – but that...we are to, and may, live nobly now because we are to live forever.” (Phillips Brooks)

HI!!! Here is a Happy Easter vote for you!
I am so happy to be able to blog and vote! Saturday I got my job list caught up and the brace is helping with the swelling, pain, & numbness. I have missed interacting with you all. I will blog and vote often as I can depending on my physical situation.

Saturday afternoon we went to the farm to take pics of my brothers and their friend as they rode out. I rode Buttercup in the field, well, my brother lead me on her. When he got her she did not like anyone. Now, she knows who he is and she only wants to listen to him! I could not ride her without him leading her. I did not want to get into a tussle with her either because my wrist are weak. I did enjoy the short ride in the field though!!!

Fancy's wound continues to improve. I was afraid to let her get her kicks out, but I let her out for a while Friday. She ran! Bucked, kicked, & ran more! There was NO limping, no swelling, no bleeding. I did put some bell boots on her before I let her out. Does any one know if it is ok to allow her to wear bell boots all day or night? I took them off when I put her back in the stall. The bell boots covers that wound so I think they will help if I leave her out. I don't know anything about bell boots because I have never used them.

If you saw our last video, don't worry, Fancy was not in any danger. Fancy has been goin up them stairs since she was 10 months old. When we go there more often she walks up them better than I do. They are in the park and there is grass on both sides. I never let her walk down. I think the pool noodle getting under her leg made her feel funny because the first time she was unsure. After I
placed that noodle back at her side she was ok.

Yesterday my aunt asked if she could ride Cherokee sometime so today Ethan and I rode Dakota and Cherokee to her place. I saddled Misty and we went for a nice long ride. My aunt has not ridden for more than a couple minutes at a time for many years but Cherokee was great for her. She really likes him, she says she will trade Misty for him. Ha like thats going to happen. He is such a nice laid back boy, I ride him beside our busy tar road and he doesn't mind the traffic at all. It is 45* and the snow is melting like crazy.

Hi Shorty, here's a vote for ya. The one thing I can understand is the heartfelt sorrow that you are feeling right now! Remember all those great times that you just talked about, she was your equine sole mate!
So Angle H.T's tramur starts again in the summer of 2006. Seems while he was at the clinic for his colic surgery, he developed the start of a shoe boil on his elbow. Over the next four years it got very large and would effect his stride. Decission made to go back to the hospital and have it removed. This time he did not have to be totally knocked out. And I got to watch, for most of it, left when it got a little to entailed for me. He had about an 8 inche incission. And they stitched him up good, but being the point of the elbow, well you know, it didn't hold for enough days. I came home three days later from work on a sunday and it was ripped open and bleeding. In the trailer back to the hospital, had to stay for two days. Couldn't be re-stitched, now it had to be packed daily and cleaned out and had to heal from the inside out. I felt like a full time nurse again. About a week later, he started with a fever and was punky, back to the hospital for another 2 or 3 days it was, he picked up a staff infection there the week before and now had that to deal with. But he come home and things started to improve once again. It took that 6 inches gapping hole about 6 months to fill in and another few months he had almost all the hair grown back in, you would have never known about that ordeal. Good thing it was the winter, and of course I was the nurse all winter again. We did a lot of bonding that horse and I!
Well we got lucky today and the snow storm stayed well south of us, we had over cast skies with periods of sun even, while an hour south of us were getting pounded with snow! Got the boys out in the indoor and did some showmanship with Indy. Love ya, Marion and the blondies.
