How We Met

Bought him out of pity, even though skin and bones, there was just something about him, I couldn't resist when I stopped in to see him and he came over and put his head on my shoulder. Finally found Steven's Natural Horsemanship and everything finally started coming together for us. He is a Holstiener/Sadd- lebred/Morgan/? crossbred and is a lot of horse for an old lady to ride. (See more pics below).

Oh goodness, yeah, it's way too hot to leave horses in a parked trailer. They're almost as hot as a parked car. Should be criminal.
Someone put up a video of the Marines marching "home", and the guys looked okay, except for some limping, but the girls had one girl being supported by 2 friends on either side, and I'm pretty sure I heard another girl crying as they marched past. And followed by 2 ambulances. I'm sure they had some go out with heat exhaustion. I've heard the military standard is for the troops to drink a liter an hour when they're in that kind of heat.
As to the horses, that's over a gallon an hour, wow. I'd guess mine at about 50 gal a day, but I had to refill twice yesterday too. Actually, they weren't quite as sweaty as they had been the couple days before.
So glad your back has eased enough to let you go grocery ahopping. Now if it would just let you sleep.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well it was hot and humid all day. But not as hot as it has been, but still very humid! Did get an early morning 1.5 mile walk in with Honey. Then mowed the lawn around the house. Headed over to ride Paige. Lesson inside, could have ridden outside, but the bugs Heather said were bad. So I opted for the indoor. And of course either having a few days off from the heat, or just being a marish day, she gave me some grief! Didn't want to work! Like nope, we're doing it my way, no Paige you're doing it the correct way. So 25 minutes of lot's of thumping with my spurs to keep her moving correct! Hopefully she won't be like that for Laura tomorrow! And it's supposed to be a little cooler and less humidity then too! So after our ride, she got hosed off, I could have used it too! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Yeah, hope that means everything looks okay on the xrays. Don't you hate having to wait through the weekend though. Glad it's feeling better and you're able to cut back on the ibuprofen already.
I too hope the online school will be a good thing for her: more structure and more resources for help where she needs it (or at least that's what they promise).
I'm gonna try to knock out some chores today. It's supposed to hit high 90s with a feels like over 100, so I probably won't be riding. A lot of hosing off, but not riding, lol. My nephew just finished 54 straight hrs of "The Crucible" at marine boot camp on Parris Island this morning. I'm sure that was pleasant. NOT!!! A hotter, more miserable, muggy, sand flea-infested spot has not been found than Parris Island. I'm so proud of him.
Well, hope you have a good weekend.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. So it started out cooler and with a nice breeze. Took Honey on a two mile walk it was so nice! Got home and weed whacked all along the fence lines in the two medium pastures and the did the entire long front of the indoor. Was going to mow but that never happened! Did get the boys out for almost 3 hours. But by 2:30pm the breeze blew itself away and the humidity and flies came out! Dive bombers too! Indy's like hey mom, it's time for the barn and fans! Okay Indy here I come to save the day! LOL! Had to go to town on a couple of errands and it was 93 degrees down there and 89 up here when I climbed the mountain! Tomorrow's supposed to be less humidity and cooler temps! Sure hope so, I want to ride Paige! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Oh goodness, trying to sleep sounds miserable. I'm so sorry. Whenever my back goes out, it's kinda the same in that being up is more comfortable, but you can only stay up for so long. Sure hope it eases up soon. Also hope the doc has no real news from the xrays.
That's good that your humidity is down and there's no "feels like".
Well, the truck was off getting an alignment and the a/c serviced, so I have an appt to take it to a mechanic on tue. Can't wait to see it and drive it. Only did a few minutes of light groundwork with Allie due to the heat. You know it's hot when Gracie is soaking wet; even Allie was sweating on her chest and shoulders a little.
Well, hope you have a great friday.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. You just know when you open the door to let the dog out at 7 am and you get hit with hot humid weather, you're in trouble! I did get Honey for a walk about 10 am, but we only went down the road in the shady areas! Got home and about 30 minutes later it hit me! Must have to just a little to hot and humid for me. Had the shakes and felt like I wanted to vomit! Force myself to drink a sports drink with electrolytes in it and it helped! Texted Marissa and she said riding lessons canceled, but come and do a little showmanship with Paige and we'll go over the show patters for the beginning of Aug. We did for about 15 minutes and I was soak n wet! Paige was dry and not panting like me! LOL! Then 5 of us went across the street to the Homestead Restaurant and enjoyed a nice luncheon! Felt good to sit in A/C and laugh about things! It was 92F when I left her farm with a humidity still at 100%, so the boys did not get out at all today! And don't ya know, about 6:30 here comes another major T-storm with super heavy rains! One inch in the gauge in a matter of 45 minutes! So sick of this rain, I'm sending it to you Buffy! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

I hope you hear from your doc today. I guess no news would be good news. Yeah, what we couldn't do with hindsight! Hope the ibuprofen and flexoril keep you fairly comfortable.
I had a ton of errands yesterday and worked on patching loose spots on the chickens' run (something got in and got one of the hens the other day). By the afternoon, it was pretty hot, so I didn't work Allie. It was Dee's turn for a hosing off last night. Poor mare was still very sweaty at 8:30 at night. They say high 90s by the weekend, yay (not).
Well, have a good thursday, don't get too hot, and hope you start to feel better.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well I've about had it with the humidity, don't mind the heat, but that wet sock feeling sucks! It calmed down around noontime, so out went the boys for 2 and half hours. Then it was coming back and the nice cool breeze left us. They were getting warm and sweaty and the flies were coming alive again, so in they came! Honey and I did our walk at 10:30 am again today. I think this will be our new walking time for the hot days. I did get some weed whacking done in the shade of the indoor along the long wall. Then tonight behind the indoor in the shade of it, I pushed back another 15 feet of those vine like weeds! Marissa did cancel lessons this afternoon due to the heat and humidity, we'll see what tomorrow brings for my lesson at 2 pm. Maybe she'll call and I can go over earlier. That'd be great! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Glad you are feeling better, even if it's due to meds. Hope the x-rays don't show anything. Will you go to the chiropracter again after the xrays?
How is Sunset doing with Jazz and Cisco? Hope they're one happy family again.
I did a little groundwork with Allie yesterday out in the pasture. She did better, stayed calmer. I'm really hoping it's raging hormones and that Regumate, etc will help. Hosed several layers of sweat and dirt off BJ as well. He and Dee are the 2 sweaters in the herd.
Well, hope you keep feeling better. Take care.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well the heat and humidity stunk already at 7 am! About 10 am I took Honey for her walk, we did 1.75 miles. Mostly in the shade thank goodness! Got home and I was soaked from the humidity. Decided the hair had to go! Go my super short cut! Got home and there was no way the boys could go out! Put two more fans on in the barn, total of 6 going and 2 of them are the big commercial ones! Hayed them and fresh water. Came up to the house to cool off. Then went down and worked on putting in the two extra stallion bars by Bullseye so he stops pulling the bungee cords that hold his fan in place! Once again, soak n wet! Come up and hear the fire sirens going off. Here come all kinds of firetrucks and emergency vehicles past the farm. It was about 3 miles from me, don't know if it was the old farm house down there or next to it! Just praying that no humans or animals were lost! Then we got hit with a really bad T-Storm that shook the house and down poured like crazy! Looks like tomorrow will be a repeat performance of today's weather! This is really getting to me! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Well I guess that's a way to start your 69th year. I really hope you're OK sounds like that ankle going to need a little rest. Always a good feeling to know nothing breaks. My biggest thing I'm trying to get Big Jax not to tailgate other horses just for that reason. I'm just glad you are only sore. I'm happy to hear sunsets home how was the herd happy to see her?

1/8 inch sounds good. As you say, waters the grass without too much mud. We wound up with 1.25 from the TS the other night, but we needed it. It's probably soaked in by now.
Yeah, I'm about at my wits end with Allie. Maybe I'm just not the rider for her. I'm gonna talk to my vet about mare heat suppression on a young mare, and then I'm out of options, unless y'all can think of anything? She's not even the horse she was when she was younger. She's always fighting with the other horses, fast fast fast, and spooking at everything and at nothing.
Well, gotta get busy. Hope you have a great tuesday.

Thanks everyone for the birthday wishes. Sorry I haven't been on in a while...lots going on right now. Still taking care of my mom. This weather really sucks...I'm beginning to think we live in the rain forest. Horses had their vaccinations and hooves trimmed. Lots of grass to cut and weeds to kill! Today my plan is to cook a pork roast, wash my truck, cut grass and weed eat, then go feed the herd. Have a great week!

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well worked in reverse today! Walked Honey this morning before the heat and humidity got really bad! Did 1.5 miles again. Of course by the time we got back and I wanted to mow, it was horrible out there! But I did get the baby paddock done and the entrance side of the indoor. And took the big rake and hand pushed back about a 40 foot length of those vines from behind the indoor, only 100 feet left to go! LOL! Much needed shower and off to the chiropractor for my normal adjustment. Then Wally World grocery shopping. Home and it was so bad out, I didn't dare turn the boys out, fresh water and hay! T-storms were bad to the south of us around 6:30 pm, could hear the thunder up here from about 12 miles away! Honey was shaking! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

It's the morning after a fall that really tells the tale, isn't it? We're you able to get to a chiropracter? Hope today is better.
I did a little groundwork with Allie yesterday. It was the first time I've done anything with her in about 3 weeks and she was all speed and spook. Needless to say, she was in a lather by the time we finished, so she got hosed off and then I trimmed her feet. Then I was in a lather and needed a shower, lol. A really nice TS blew up just as I was finishing feeding and we got a good soaking from that.
Well, hope you have a great monday.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well pretty productive day today. Had to, slacked off enough yesterday for my B-Day! LOL! Got hot out, but at least not humid! Got the weed whacking done where I wanted too! Mowed the lawn around the house and then the outdoor arena track fence lines! Boys were out a little over 2 hours only, then I noticed Indy was breaking a sweat just grazing, so in they came. Don't know why, maybe cause I'll be using the smaller goose neck to bring Paige home Sept 1st, I checked the tires! Remember I only put 2 new ones on it and still have to get the other two done. Well one of the two was flat, really like flat! So got out the air compressor and worked on those two tires. All pumped up now, probably go get them sometime in Aug so it's ready to go. New two tires holding air very well, better, right! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi & a Vote,
Happy belated birthday to you!!
Saturday evening it was really nice and I went for a trail ride on Rocky... actually a double loop. One time with my friend's mare and one time with her gelding, so they could both go out. Rocky and Blue were both tired out after that!

Goodness, I'm impressed that you bounced and didn't break too. That just means you're good to ride, if you can still take a fall. Bad boy, Dobie.
Really, ANOTHER house in the road? It's getting to be a regular thing, isn't it. Did Sunset get settled in again well? Was Cisco excited to see her?
Well, we didn't find out she was pregnant till she was about 4-5 mo along. Not married, of course, but they have plans to make it right, and I hope they can. Now that I'm primarily responsible for her horse Dee, I started with a hoof trim yesterday. They were pretty chipped and some flair, but a nice foot underneath.
My friend came over and we got more done on the deck, I'd say a little over half done with the decking boards. Cutting them to fit around the rails is slow tedious work, but the rest of it is going pretty good.
Well, hope you aren't too sore today and your ankle goes down. Take care.

Nice outside today, going to rain sometime this afternoon. Was busy moving bigger chicks to bigger pens, so everyone is playing moving pens again. I have to keep the hen that hatched out guinea keets, locked up in the shop, mostly so that the keets do not go to the adult guinea hens that are running around outside. Keets raise by hens usually are more sociable, and do not stay out until it is too dark to see....like some guineas I know. Horses are doing OK, mostly getting fat. Mistit leg seems to bother her some times, I do the exercise for strengthening the muscle around the stifle joint, and she was doing good for a long time, now she is favoring that leg again.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. What a nice day weather wise today! Plus it was a great B-Day for me! Got a great ride on Paige in my lesson! Marissa figured out that I needed to shorten my stirrups a bit to keep my legs in a better position. It really helped my riding and my knees! Stopped at a friends on the way home for a small BBQ treat! Then got home and let the boys out. Honey and I took a nice 1.75 mile walk, it was kinda cool, 80F but with a nice breeze! So we both enjoyed it! Then was sat in the back yard and watched the boys grazing! Tomorrow it's back to work! Weed whacking and mowing, all that rain yesterday made that darn lawn grow! LOL!

Happy late birthday to you. Did you get to do anything fun? Hope it works out (and by that, I mean I hope the weather cooperates) for you to go get Sunset and ride at Steve and Amanda's.
I haven't been on HC the last couple of days. Worked 2 long shifts in a row, and my niece Kathryn (the one who used to stay with me and help with the horses) had a baby wednesday, so I spent most of yesterday visiting her and my sister. She and the baby girl are both doing well. I'll try to get back into routine now, lol. Although, there's nothing new to report. Haven't had time to ride in several weeks, and I'll probably try to work on the deck again today. But the horses are doing well.
I guess that's all. Hope you have a great weekend.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well the rains stayed till about 4 pm, steady but not super hard on us. About 1.5 inches all total! South Jersey took a beating! Several inches and major flooding of roadways. Severe thunder and lightning! Indy got lunged in the indoor. Then I trimmed Bullseye feet. He's done for another 8 weeks at least. He don't grow much hoof and he plays a lot outside and wears them down nice and even! Tomorrow the weather is looking better. Have my lesson earlier on Paige tomorrow. Yay, I love earlier! Marissa is going team penning with three of her horses and the people from her barn that are younger than me to do that stuff! I might go watch, it starts at 6 pm however! Feeding time for my guys is 7 pm. So I really doubt I'll go. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well it was a busy hot, humid one for sure! When you wake up at 6:15 and it's already 72F you know it's not gonna be nice out! It was like walking out into a sauna to feed. JW was here right on time, 9:30 to trim Indy. WOW are his feet really looking great! After he left, the sun disappeared and it didn't seem quite as bad. So I mowed the two med sized pastures, now they are all done. Then got ready and went over for my lesson with Paige. Had a really good lesson today. Marissa adjusted my stirrups again, and I do have to admit, even though it's more bend in my knees than I'm used to, I had a much quieter leg and seat! Worked on our horsemanship patters for the first day of the next show. It was hot in the indoor, I literally could have rung out my cool max t-shirt! We hosed her off and then I helped bring in the horses from the pastures. There was an alert over the radio that a bad storm was 15 minutes out. Yep it was, I ran into it on the way home. I had to pull off the road into a parking lot and wait it out! Ground to air lightning and rain so hard you couldn't see anything in front of you! This was about 7.5 miles from home, got within a mile of my farm and the roads and everything were dry as a bone! We got nothing up here on the mountain. I was glad, cause that thunder would have driven Honey nuts without me home! All was well! Boys got hay for lunch and fresh water, no time out today, to muggy and buggy again! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Cheryl! I went and saw a place on Tuesday night and really really like it for Koot! It's the same price I'm paying now, but a much better living space then he's currently in. There was maybe 5 flies when I was there. They clean twice a day, feed twice a day, blanket when necessary, etc. It's with one other horse. They have two stalls one is a 12x12 box stall with a large turnout and the other is a 24x24. They switch the horses every other day so they each get to use the turnout or I can have Koot and the other horse have access to everything at all times if I feel comfortable. Voted. XOXO Danya and Koot

Hi & a vote,
Rocky is due for the farrier again. Waiting to see what day he will be coming. Yesterday had a busy day with a doc appt in morning, visiting a friend in the hospital, visiting my Mom at the nursing home only to find she had somehow fractured top part of left arm. Then had to take the transport with her on a stretcher to the ortho doc office. She'll just need to keep arm in sling until it heals, which may not be easy thing to do! By time I got home last evening it was very late and I was exhausted. Put the A/C on and cuddled up with all the furry beasts.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well we probably could have gotten a walk in early this morning. But opted to take Honey for a drive with me to pick up Indy's grain. She was happy to go, cookies at the checkout! Got home and decided since it was only 80 degrees with not much humidity yet, and a breeze that was kinda cool, I'd turn the boys out! Was hoping to leave them out longer than 2 hours but that didn't happen! Just finished some lunch and heard Indy screaming his lungs out! Yep running like a wild man from the green heads and flies! He was drenched! Had to cold hose him for like 10 minutes, then put him in front of 2 fans to cool him off. Bullseye still has a thicker coat than he does, so the bugs don't really get to him. He was fine. Checked Indy every 20 minutes and he was fine. Did get the two medium pastures mowed again. They grow so fast! Can't wait till mid Sept when Paige gets home! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Yeah, I know you said he hasn't been able to work that blue roan much cause of how busy he is. Can't keep them all, but I'm sure he wants to. I would too.
Is it still in the works for you to pick up Sunset this weekend?
Glad your grass is doing so well. Sure saves money not having to feed hay all summer.
One of my errands yesterday got cancelled (my s.i.l., Lisa, cancelled her dentist appointment cause she's feeling bad again-oh dear) so I was able to trim BJ's feet and hose off and treat Allie's leg.
Well, work today, ugh, but hope you have a great wednesday.

Come visit me, Allie & BJ and his mom Gracie. Honored to be July HOTM!.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Cloudy and overcast all day long, with a 7 pm downpour! So went over early to Marissa's and Paige got her feet done. They so needed it and of course I was the one to get in trouble when she got there! I have lesson horses for him to do, why is he doing your horse. Cause he said meet him here at 10 ish and I'll do her first! Thank goodness he told her my mare was way to long and she should have told him about it too! Trainers!!!!!!!!!!!! UGH! Got home and got the boys out, it was still not humid at that point and a breeze. So then Honey and I did over a 2 mile walk. About 3:30 it started to get really ugly and humid, so in they came! Then we just did a few things outside and came and hung out in the A/C! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Cheryl! I'm sort of with you on that..I'd rather it be hot then humid. We don't really get humidity much here, but yesterday we got a humid thunderstorm yesterday morning that lasted maybe an hour and then it was gone. It was so very strange, but I guess we got something from the storm in Mexico! It was soooo hot this past weekend. I even went to see Koot early and it was still too hot to take him out so I just cleaned his stall and gave him some apples off my apple tree. I'm going tonight to check on a place for Koot. I'm still waiting to hear back from another friend to see if Koot can be there, but we'll see how it all works out. Voted. XOXO Danya and Koot

Come visit me, Kootenai.

It was pretty crazy that Miracle only went for $200. It costs more to adopt a totally unbroken mustang from the BLM, doesn't it? Hope he went to a good home. That one video with the kids yelling "go Daddy!" in the background was so cute.
Sorry about the arthritis diagnosis. Arthritis just sucks.
Wish we lived closer, you could ride Gracie for me. I'm not getting any ride time these days. Today's another full day, probably won't be home at all till this evening with all the errands I've got. Then work the next 2 days. Maybe friday won't be so bad.
Well, hope you have a great tuesday

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Very productive day and really didn't kill myself doing it all! LOL! Since it was nice this morning, Honey and I did a good 1.5 miles, cool and breezy. So at noontime, I turned the boys out earlier than usual. As they were calling for sun, heat and humidity to return in the midday! It did, by 3 pm it was sticky and hot! Boys willingly came to the gate! Then I mowed all around the indoor and then the house lawn all done too! It was hot, but at least with the mower moving I was making my own breeze! LOL! Tomorrow farrier for Paige at 9:30 am, so I'll be out of here early! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi & a vote,
Just back from an exciting weekend from the bridal shower for my future daughter-in-law to be. We were on Long Island and took the ferry across Long Island Sound yesterday on the way home. Then went up to pickup Blue and take a ride on Rocky last evening with my friend and her horse & dog.

Come visit me, Rocky (the blue-eyed wonder horse), Comet (has new home) & Cowboy (Thanks for HOTD 1/19/2017!).

Yep, if you can't ride Sunset, you'll need a horse to ride, or you'll go bananas. I'm sure you're already itching for saddle time. So you're picking her up next weekend? Has Steve still been riding her (except for while he's gone)?
After church and a little nap yesterday, I trimmed Cinni's feet, sprayed weeds in the driveway and along some fence lines, gave the mini schnauzer a haircut, and took a 15 min swim in the pool. Nice to get those chores out of the way.
Hope your week gets off to a good start.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. What a beautiful day out today! Started out at 52F and only got to about 77F with a nice light breeze! Didn't do much this morning, as I didn't sleep very well last night! UGH! But did get the boys out for a few hours this afternoon, they loved it, nice breeze and no bugs! Honey and I got a mile walk in too, then just hung out in the shade of the backyard watching Indy and Bullseye grazing. So it was a relaxing day. Tomorrow it's back to mowing and weed whacking again. Then Tuesday starts more rain and T-storms! YUK! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

I watched his go in the trail class. You just never know with horses, do you. Such sensitive animals looking for something to be wrong and assuming there are predators lurking everywhere is just a recipe for the unexpected to happen. Hope his last class goes well.
Well, we worked all afternoon on the deck, got it maybe 1/3 finished. Running the boards diagonally is looking good, but takes a lot longer. My friend came over with all kinds of cool saws and tools to make the job go better. I'm hoping I can work on it some here and there, but all I have is a circle saw, don't want to clumsy up what's a good job so far.
No horse time except feeding. It was really hot and humid anyway. And, Allie knocked some hide off her hind cannon area and it's pretty swollen but she's not limping on it.
Well, hope you have a great sunday.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well it wasn't as bad as they said it could have been today. At least not up here on the mountain. Was hot and humid over at Marissa's however! Did get to drag the outdoor again and pick up more rocks! I hate rocks, they are about the 2x3 inches and smaller, nothing really big, but I hate rocks! Love my clean sandy pens! It was humid by Paige's and we both worked up a good sweat today! Only Paige lucked out and got hosed off, I couldn't, didn't want to sit in wet clothes on my leather seats in the truck! LOL! Good ride, we did lots of jogging and long trotting, and added in some loping! Got home and turned the boys out, but an hour later the storm got here! Black skies and then bam, a downpour! I then did get soaked and cooled off getting them in. Wet enough to have to change into completely dry clothes! Felt good though! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Bad thunderstorms hitting our area. Knew it was going to be bad when my out door cats stay in. Have to feed at the barn today. they are going to a wedding for one of the other boarders. Have a 25 girl who hangs out there helping. I say girl as she has that mentality. Good girl but has done feeding before and forgot to hay two horses. NOT good! I know she tries to do good and tells me she got it. I also know she thinks she is protecting me because of my heart. But the but is just that. Youngsters just don't get us old girls LOL. To many bad experiences of people not taking care of my horse. This is when I really wish I had my own place. Have a great weekend. Keep me posted on Steve. Vicki & Big Jax

Come visit me, Big Jax.
