How We Met

I decided to trade one mode of transportation for another after a deer totaled my car (yes his pasture mate is a more recent addition because of a deer as well). Chance came to me after countless hours of research searching for the perfect beginners horse. He made the long haul from Kentucky and was welcomed by snow and me of course - neither of which he was too fond of. It took A LOT of work on my part to learn to speak his language but he is full of lessons and teaches me something new everyday. He is an absolute joy and always makes me laugh when I'm having a bad day!.

Deacon 237272 IS running Jan 2015 HOTM
Deacon would love your support ☆ As I have mentioned before, I have learned so much with Deacon and of course Whiskey & Rocket. Each horse has brought knowledge to me that has its own value. I think we all carry a special place for that 1st horse that is hard to describe ♥ the 1st year ½ I went trail riding, I experienced penning & cutting cows but my favorite has always been trail riding. Have a great Thursday ~Whinny’s & hugs ☆

Hooves crossed for Whiskey to be ~ May HOTM ♡
<)___~ Whiskey will return to the Doc on May 20th for his next set of x-ray’s. I feel he will be just fine, last dose of bute yesterday and I think in 2 days will tell a lot of how he is but I can’t know for sure until the next visit. I want to thank you all for all the amazing support throughout the month of April. I hope you enjoyed his story and I surely hope I can tell you many more story’s in the future of he & I riding together…God bless you all…..I honestly did not realize how difficult and demanding running for HOTM could be until now! Not having a computer at home really made this challenging for me, so again I cannot say thanks enough, sending love to you & your herds!!!!!!!
Here is our finial tidbit on the Fabulous Rocky Mountain Horse Breed! In the early 1960s, Sam Tuttle managed the trail riding concession at the Natural Bridge State Park in Powell County, Kentucky. He had as many as fifty horses there, including TOBE. This stallion was often seen tied to the hitching post alongside all the mares. He became quite well known in the ten or so years he was ridden there. Besides breeding, TOBE was used as a trail horse. He carried Sam, and sometimes the trail guides who worked for Sam, with sure-footed ease over mountainous terrain for many years. Although Sam would allow other people to ride TOBE occasionally, it was always a ride closely supervised. He loved to show off his beloved stallion, but also kept a close eye on him. Everyone who rode TOBE enjoyed his gentle temperament and comfortable gait. It amazed people to think the well-mannered horse they were riding was indeed a breeding stallion.
TOBE was used for breeding until July of his thirty-fourth year, and he passed on his gait, disposition, and other great qualities to his offspring. It has been said that TOBE's progeny followed in his "perfectly-timed" footsteps. TOBE sired many fine horses before his death at the ripe old age of thirty-seven. One outstanding trait passed on was longevity, as many of his offspring were still breeding into their late twenties and early thirties.
Thank you for your support we appreciate it! Hoping to see him as the top horse tomorrow!!!!!

Have a wonderful day ♡
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. The picture today was taken 8/2012. 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. We haven’t camped out in nearly 2 years, and that is when I can try to swim with the horses. It’s too hard to try swimming when I day ride because of the drive home (driving wet is no fun) -ha ha =) Deacon is my true water baby-he will actually swim with me and never try to lie down. I have also found that Whiskey hates for any type bug to fly in his face-so needless to say while we ride in the open if there are grass hoppers or butter flies, regular fly’s he tosses his head slightly. It doesn’t bother me now but it used to. Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

Whiskey would love your support for his HOTM run
Monday we left off about Whiskey’s color and me with 5 hundred questions for Karla! Here we go…That poor girl had never met me before and I could not shut up :) I then walked over and looked Whiskey right in the eye and he looked back into mine and my heart sunk. His beauty was striking and the color was outstanding. He had a smart, sharpness about him-I’m sure he was thinking “what in the world is she doing”. The ride finally got underway; usually everyone has me ride out front and calls me the trail boss! Deacon is a faster walking horse but can ride in the middle or behind after the first hour or so. Well, here comes Rio & Whiskey with their smooth selves!!! They just gaited their smooth self’s right past me & Deacy. I watched Whiskey and noticed he didn’t quite move the same as Rio but still a difference from a QH. 2 hours into the ride we decided to rest a few minutes in a place we call “Carol’s lounge”. We have names for all our spots we ride to rest or to take a break out there because it’s so big. Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

Generally healthy horses, they often live long lives but do have a tendency to be extremely "easy keepers". Care must be taken to keep your Rockies from becoming too overweight, particularly in their later years.* Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

Once again thanks for our HOTD honors. I did manage to leave early on Thursday and stop by the pasture to give Ace and his pals some carrots. Ace looked like he knew he was the special boy for the day. lol I posted some new pics that were taken on Labor day when the horses were just chillin. Six pics on Susie's page and four pics on Ace's page. Well Monday is the day we will be bringing Ace to the trainer to get broke. Wish him luck and pray he turns out to be something special. Leaving a weekend vote for ya.

We live near the Waldo Canyon burn scar, just 5 feet outside the flood zone. It has been raining non stop since last night and will continue until tomorrow. Flash floods, washed out roads, road closures, loss of life, constant 'get to higher ground now'.... and so much more. Manitou Springs just finished cleaning up from the last flood and they are getting it again. So sad.

HI
Hello everyone.
First off I would like to say thank you so very much for TJ's 3rd HOTD!!! He would be so excited to hear of his win. :)

I would also like to apologize for not replying sooner, but I was out of town for a little over two weeks with very limited internet access.

During my 2 week vacation I spent most of my time at my Aunts, who lives out in the country. It was a very nice change from living in the city.
While there I took my little cousin to the water park as much as possible and then went to LEGOLAND again with my friend, his sons, and my cousin. We had a blast, and hopefully we'll go back again sometime soon as we still did not get to do all of the rides.

After the two weeks I again went off with my friend, he runs in races and was running in the Tour De Pain, a two day, three race series. He's now No.2 in his age division and something like No.3 overall in FL. He did really well considering he was running injured and could have easily just said no to running, but he refused to give in and did it anyways.

I would also like to thank everyone who has sent me well wishes for my Uncle who was sick with Pancreatic cancer. He unfortunately passed away on August 8th at 8am, the day after I came home and the day before my mom's birthday. His funeral will be this Thursday and we are having his memorial dinner at my place.

I hope everyone is doing well and having a very horsey summer. Hugs and love to everyone.

Come visit me, TJ (And friends).

Congratulations DARLING our August HOTM! Thank you Sadie for being a great queen during the month of July!

Here are a few fun horse facts:
The average horse weighs about a half a ton, its brain is the size of a baked potato.

A horse's hoof is analogous to the human fingernail. Horses stand on their middle fingers!

Some of the equine family's closest relatives are tapirs and the rhinoceros.

A horse can poop up to 14 times a day!

Horses cannot vomit.

Most of the time, a horse's ear points where the horse is looking.

Horses can lock the muscles in their legs so they can go to sleep standing up and not fall over.

If you can only have time to vote for 1 of my horses, please vote for Cherokee for his HOTM run! Thank you!

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.

LITTLE COWBOY CLASS/Word of the Day: “Bucking: counter-irritant.”

Have a beautiful evening ✞

GOOD MORNING ALL, LEFT A VOTE TODAY. It has only been 2 days with the increased meds, and she seems to be making some small improvement. Her attitude is good, she is peeing better, she has been eating her bucket up, so I let her have as much as she wants. We use a Senior pettet plus a vitamin mineral supplement plus an extra supplement for her hind gut, I soak the whole thing and add loose salt. I tried her again on the hay cubes but she doesn't seem interested in them, and I am soaking them too. She is fine on pasture, and she wants to eat her hay, but she just can't chew it up. Meds first, then teeth. Talk soon, Love Donna Lee & Sterly Girly

Missed you, where have you been?
We left a vote, wishing all our American friends a Happy 4th of July. Our girl seems to be holding her own this morning. Her blood work showed that her Cushing's has advanced, so we have to fool around with the dosage to get her nicely balanced again. Her teeth are still an issue, but I think getting her meds regulated need to be done first, after all if she won't eat, teeth don't much matter, We appreciate all the well wishes, she is hanging in, me too, barely...Love Donna Lee

Voted. I read my blogs, looks like most of us are really enjoying our equine pals this spring! Great blogs! And now we have a whole new weekend to enjoy more adventures, have fun :)

Trigger had a bath Wednesday evening, then he spent the night stalled. Trigger had his vet visit today. He loaded up nicely the first time, but he backed out before I got the butt bar up. The second time he stayed in there. Fancy ran around screaming bloody murder. I like to take them places without the other one so they can know that it is ok to be separated. They do not agree with that. LOL. When we returned, Fancy was filthy with sweat and dirt, from all of her running and screaming. When I turned Trigger loose, Fancy scolded him roughly for leaving her. After that, Fancy was nice to Trigger. I cannot believe how silly Fancy can be.

We really had a bad storm this evening. I was filling Fancy’s water tub when the storm began. The wind was exceptionally high and Fancy was playing in the water. I just put a tarp over Bandit’s (my Siberian Husky) kennel on his birthday, May 31, Well, the wind lifted that kennel and tossed it sideways into our chain link fence on that side of our yard. Bandit was a bit terrified, he ran into his dog house and stayed there until Cowboy and I got his kennel back in place. Then I took that tarp off. The wind did blow harder, and I was thankful the kennel stayed on the ground for the remainder of the storm. As we worked on the kennel, Fancy ran crazy then went to eat hay. I guess all the running wild and crazy did work up an appetite. Trigger did not seem to really care that the wind was up. He did join Fancy munching hay in the rain though.

It was amazing to see huge trees swaying wildly, almost touching the ground. It was beautiful and frightful at the same time. I hardly ever see this because I am usually in the house when the storms come up. I was glad when the storm was over and things were peaceful again.

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS: All I Need to Know in Life I Learned From My Horse: ‘Everyone loves a good, wet, slobbery kiss.’

LITTLE COWBOY CLASS/ Phrase of the day: RECENTLY VETTED: someone else found something really wrong with this horse.


Have a peaceful and safe night ✞

We left a vote today, looks like another rain day coming up, I am off to physio this morning, I'm still not able to drive, so that is just one more thing that David has to do, I have to say, I like being driven around. There really is very little I can do with one arm, but, I can still let the guys out in the morning. I can slide the barn door open with one hand as long as it isn't windy, and because both of these guys drop their heads, I can get halters on, I can even carry hay, one flake at a time, it isn't much, bur I look forward to it.

HERE IS THE FINAL EPISODE, THANKS TO EVERYONE THAT SUPPORTED US ALONE THE WAY. WE LEFT YOU VOTES AS WELL.
With Jackie and Sterl settled in their new home and David and I in our new house, things were great, except Jackie's health was failing and his quality of life was sometimes quite poor. I convinced myself that I should really look for another horse because if something was to happen to Jackie, Sterl May would be alone. Plus I would like to ride again. After an EXTENSIVE search(please read ROYAL MES "HOW WE MET") I found Charlie. What can I say about Charlie, he is simply the best. Charlie arrived Oct.8,2008, Thanksgiving Sunday. Jackie passed quietly with David, Sterly and me by his side on June 9, 2010. She loved her little buddy, she watched and called for him for several days. Dr. Cook told me to let her be, they mourn the same as we do. We had him cremated and he is buried in the pasture where Sterl can be close everyday. This is her last move, it is my last move until they cart me of to the "old folks home" Everyday is an adventure, what I have tried to say this last month, is that thru all of it, STERLY GIRLY has always been there. THE END, LOVE TO ALL DONNA LEE & STERLY GIRLY.

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS: All I Need to Know in Life I Learned From My Horse: When in doubt, run far, far away.

Fancy was a very good girl at her vet check up this morning. I remembered at the last minute to get the vaccine in her hip instead of neck. She seemed to tolerate it better that way the last time. The vet measured her height for me. Fancy is 15 HH!!! I could tell she grew, but every time I measured her, I always get 14. ???. I knew I was not getting a correct reading when I measured her.


LITTLE COWBOY CLASS/ Word of the day: SPIRITED: psychotic.


Have a peaceful spring night,
Love from Fancy & Frances ♥

Just when I was sure things could not get any worse, guess again. Not only was I looking for a new place for Sterl & Jackie to live, understand that boarding 2 horses that are not ride-able was out of the question. Jackie was also having some health issues, he had COPD and Cushing's disease, plus due to an old case of laminitis he wore special shoes, all of this cost $$$. You know that expression, "BEING AT THE RIGHT PLACE AT THE RIGHT TIME" Well, I could almost not believe my luck, I heard from a neighbor that a place just down the road was going to be available, to make a long story short, when I looked at it, it was perfect, it needed fencing and the barn needed some reno, but nothing like what I had been thru, the only catch was if we rented the barn and pasture, they really wanted us to take the house as well. I would actually be where my horses were, I could see them all day, it would be amazing. I believe in life it isn't where you go, it's how you get there....we were home. LAST STORY TOMORROW, THANKS TO EVERYONE, IT HAS BEEN GREAT FUN SHARING STERL'S JOURNEY, LEFT A VOTE, LOVE DONNA LEE & STERLY GIRLY

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
