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 Horsemanshp 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).

Honestly, are we humans expected to feed EVERYTHING? Someone once asked me if I collected anything and I said yes, I collect hungry things, lol. Get home from work and everybody and everything are standing around waiting on me to feed them. (I say all this with a smile).

We have a bunch of scissortails hanging out, and of course "Hank" lol I love that website=Rick Gore's Horsemanship! I couldn't pull up the video tho...

The 1st few times I rode Whiskey my arms were wore out and tired. I was thinking “man what in the world”. He did not and could not Neck rein. He was very hard in the mouth, no flex in his neck but Karla & Tim told me he needed that kind of work. Tim felt he didn’t ride him in collection and so on. He was Tim’s first horse. We would get under the canopy of the trees on the trails and he would do great with my seat aids which I was happy about. That is how I ride him, with my seat and leg aids. I guess we all are supposed to do that RIGHT!!!! I then started planning my next few months of teaching him to neck rein. I just went back to the beginning and put him in an “O” ring snaffle and took it from there. Every day his personality would shine and he entertained Cliff & me with his antics! Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

I had a nice lesson on Rose yesterday. We worked on deconstructed barrels. Then I trail rode for the cool down. It was a fun lesson.

I watched the movie "God's Not Dead" the other day. It was really good. You should check it out sometime.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well so much for the nice warm temps. Started at 60 today and it's been dropping like a lead balloon! Going down to 25 degrees overnight, with the rain changing to possible snow! WTH! Went over and got my last riding lesson of the month as I'll be picking Paige up tomorrow to come home! I can't wait to have her home. Had a really good horsemanship lesson today. Tomorrow we'll do showmanship lesson before packing up to come home. Rained really hard all day, almost 3 inches, have a little water in the one corner of the indoor where it always has a little problem. But I don't feel bad, Marissa's indoor was taking on water too! Heavy, heavy rains! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

32 this morn, 64 this afternoon with light winds
love this afternoons weather-hope it turns out correct =) I will get some outside time. Did you get the mecate re-tied?

Finally that Saturday morning rolled around. I could hardly sleep the night before. Everything was running threw my head about what I was going need and about if I had everything ready for his arrival to our place. I kept thinking about how alpha Deacon was and how they would get along. After all they have road a thousand miles of trails together. . The more I thought, the more I felt like after the ride we would come on home instead of camping. I wanted to get him home and on our property to make this dream come true for me. I had never rode Whiskey until the day I bought him, can you believe that!!! It did not matter to me how he rode at all, I wanted him and that was that! We had a nice ride that day and came on home. Cliff broke out his tools and started working around the barn. Today’s picture is of Whiskey’s first comedy show for us. He said (ha ha) “Dad, I can bring this orange Home Depot bucket to ya, I know it has feed in it for me!” Enjoy! Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

Here's a vote from Buddy! Sorry I did not get on last night like I had planned. My sister called to see if I wanted to come and visit her and baby Brylee again so I went to see them, I know you guys will understand!

Today was a nice day outside, it was about plus 11 out! And of course today was the one day that I wasn't working in the "barn" as us girls call it. The boss has started this new schedule sort of thing where some days the "circled" person's name will be doing other work or odd jobs around the barn instead of the normal day to day cleaning the stalls and that sort of stuff. Today my name was circled so I got to come in to work at 8 AM instead of 630 and I re-varnished the whole indoor arena! It looks so much better and from what I've heard it's been about 10 years since it was last done! Tomorrow the top and bottom strips get painted brown and I may post a picture of how it looks when it's all done!

Buddy & I may go for a ride tomorrow if it's supposed to be nice, but I've heard it's supposed to snow in the morning, so we will see what happens. And finally after waiting all weekend I got to get a look in the barns new little "tack shop" and I bought myself a jacket with the barn logo on it! I've seen a few people wearing them lately and I had to have one for myself! :) I hope everyone had a good weekend and has a great week!

It's a 3hr trip one way and he will be there for 3 days then I will still be with him in Canon City for the 2 days that follow that. Work is off the hook and getting prepared for Digit's surgery is stressing me out!! So I will be thinking of all my HC friends and will be back next week!!

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Hard day working on my farm today. Got lots done! De-cob webbed more than half the barn with the shop vac. Stiff neck from looking up and holding 4 extensions on the hose. Dragged the indoor with the big tractor and big drag, footing is nice and fluffy now! Just waiting for Paige's first ride on thursday in it. Did a bunch of stuff and the boys were out this afternoon, temps were in the high 70's with pretty gusty winds, but they didn't mind. I'm ready to go and crash now! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Darth is ok Bill said, maybe he hit his leg on the log and it just made it sore for the afternoon?!

We left off Friday about the phone call to buy Whiskey! The arrangement was made for us to meet that weekend and Whiskey would be mine. The next few days were like a life time to me. I had put in a vacation day for that Friday because I knew I couldn’t concentrate and I wanted to get everything ready for the trail ride …I mainly wanted to get everything ready for his new home with us. Cliff was putting in our stalls at the time. I came home the day Karla called and talked with Cliff of course. Like I said he wasn’t working but he was working at our place (love cheap labor) lol. That next day after work I came home and he had added the 3rd stall, I started to cry of course because I knew he understood how badly I wanted Whiskey. Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

I hate retying the mecate too. I guess if one did it all the time it would be easier. I always have to Google " how to tie the mecate". Good luck.
Was Cisco tired after his ride? Did you ride any yesterday? I didn't but did brush another 3 lbs of winter hair off Gracie and trimmed allies feet. She picked her feet up almost before I asked. Good girl!
Well, hope you have a good Monday.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. What another beautiful day out. Sunny, so wind but not bad and it hit 81 at my farm and 85 over by Paige! I got some color going on! LOL! Paige had a snaffle bit lesson today, Marissa wanted to do some really good bending and flexing and she won't do it in a bit, only a mild snaffle. I had a great showmanship lesson too, learning more about how proper body position really makes it all come together! I guess when you have clients that show at the World Show and make it in the top 5, you have to know you're business! And Marissa does! Got home and got Indy out in the baby pasture for more grass time, the little that is growing. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi, left a vote. Thank you everyone for supporting Toby and giving him the HOTD honor once again! There isn't a day that goes by that I don't think about him. I love that horse so much! He is very happy in his new home, they love him. He has two little girls that love him. They show him and ride him. He is in the best home, and that is all that matters. It was hard to let him go, but easier knowing he is in such a loving home.

FIRST RIDE OF THE SPRING.....
Good Morning my friends. Well, it has been quite a week. My apologies for not being here for my usual Saturday morning thing, but I had to work. It was just 5 hours, at straight OT, hee haw. The best news of all, Trevor saw his oncologist on Friday, she is VERY pleased, so far. The tumor can still be felt, but she said it is smaller than 6 weeks ago when he finished treatment. She said this type of tumor can continue shrinking for up to a year. She wants to see him in a month. Second, it was a nice day yesterday, all tho still "boot sucking" mud. I got all the broken insulators replaced on the bottom row of my fence, due to snow damage. The fence looks good again, then, because yesterday was ONE YEAR since my shoulder surgery, I took Charlie out for a ride, there is one tiny little corner of the paddock that was dry enough to walk a bit, barely...but at least it was a ride. I thought it was significant. Good thing too, because it rained overnight and rain is on for today, cold next week maybe even a flake or two of snow, boo. Have a great day, we left a vote, Love to all, thanks for the prayers for Trevor. Love Donna Lee

HI Cisco, here's a vote for ya. What a day today, it was sunny and hit 77 at Paige's and 74 up here on the mountain by me. Had a great showmanship lesson, then Marissa worked her in the outdoor arena again, then it was my turn. Awesome ride! Hard to believe that Paige will be coming home on Wed this coming week. Got home and turned Indy out in the baby pasture behind the barn, he was happy to be on the little bit of grass that was there. Then Bullseye went out for a while too. Hard the big barn door open and Mo hung out, did take off for a while, but he came back and he's in for the night. Good kitty cat! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.
