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 yeah, I can totally see Cisco flying around, tickled to be "free". As powerful as he is, i bet thats quite the breath-catching ride. Gracie and BJ are usually like, "are we done yet? Are we done yet?" Once in a while, Gracie gets a wild hair and wants to scoot.
It's hot here too, though not as hot as TX. Mid to upper 90s, haven't really looked at the "feels like" temp. Probably don't want to know. I've been trying to ride in the mornings, and also, Allie just handles the heat well, better than I do. I'll be dripping sweat and she doesn't seem to notice that it's hot at all. The other horses look pretty miserable though.
I had a great ride on Allie yesterday, we did a fair amount of trotting and she let me steer her a little and stopped when I asked her too (more or less). We finished with walking and steering, nice and relaxed. Good girl. Then I trimmed her feet, cut grass, cleaned the chicken coop, picked blueberries, and decorated the porch for the 4th. My daughter and I took an afternoon break and went to our favorite gas station for cold drinks. They have an iced cappuccino slushy that I love in the summer. I really enjoyed getting some of the farm chores done, I've had so little time to do them this year.
Well, hope you have a great thursday.

Hi. I'm getting by late tonight. Hate that you're having so much heat. I bet they really enjoy their baths, get a little relief from the heat. Yeah, I think people would tolerate the heat better if we didn't have A/C. But sure love the A/C!
So will someone probably add your pretty little heifer to their herd? She sounds like a cutie. The steer sounds like a bully, no pun intended.
I had a good ride on Allie today. I started doing more trotting on her, doing a little turning while trotting, and she stayed pretty relaxed. I was really proud of her, but know she may be different tomorrow. The rest of the day was spent doing farm chores, which I'm so far behind on. Cut grass, cleaned the chicken coop, trimmed Allie's feet, and picked blueberries. And decorated the front porch for July 4th. I really enjoyed catching up on those sorts of things. Then tonight we watched the backside of a thunderstorm, the top shining bright in the setting sun, the under side dark and raining. So pretty.
Well, hope you have a good evening.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well nothing done with the horses besides turnout this afternoon after I got home from doctor appointments. Was in the low 70's with a nice cool breeze. Honey and I hung out in the back yard in the shade. This morning I dragged the arena for Thursday rides and brought hay to the barn. Made out good at the Pulmonologist and he read all my blood work and ekg from my major physical back in May. All the other reports were self explanatory and I could figure them out. I'm good to go for another year! Just have to re-do the hearing test on that right ear later in July and go get this left knee looked at! I think I've got a slight tear in the Medial Meniscus! I know the feeling, and it feels like it! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Deacon is doing very well alone. He has my undivided attention and he's eating it up! It has been very hot with the "feels like" from 107-111 so I have hosed him down several days and of course he gets cold carrots numerous times through the day as well. We had storms hit us from 1pm yesterday afternoon until after 7:30 pm. It will make for some hotter days coming up. Have a great hump day ♡

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Woke up to drizzle and misty rain. Very overcast day and now a storm moving in! Honey is under the computer desk at my feet! Well we all feel rested today. Honey had a really good time, she made new friends, and even with some other pups! We did our training session this morning in the indoor. She's off leash all the time going and coming from the barn, she's doing so well. Okay now it's time to work Paige out, yep you can tell she's home. Didn't try to take advantage of me at all! So she's getting ring wise and I'm good at curing that! It'll cost me a class or two, but I'll win that one! Indy got free time to run and roll in the indoor. And since it hadn't rained anymore and wasn't going to for a few hours, out they went! Noses to the grass and never came up for air! Almost 2 hours of relaxing and eating for them. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Bad steer. How big are they now? Will you buture one or sell them all and start over
We finally got some rain this afternoon. I'm very grateful, we haven't had a drop in about 4 weeks.
we had a really good time visiting my sister. She and her hubby are really happy in their new place, and that's good to see.
I finally got to ride this morning. Allie has had over a week off. She did okay, I'm going to try trotting tomorrow and hope she doesn't get too wound up doing it. We'll see.
Well, it's bedtime. Have a good night.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well Sunday's two Ranch Riding classes of course didn't go off till 5 pm or so! We were both ready to go home at that point! LOL! But we got two 3rds in the Novice Ranch Riding and and 2 and 3 rd in the Select Ranch Riding. We scratched out of the Open division, as Paige was really tired and I didn't want to push her. Being there 7 days with no turn out time or down time was tough on both of them. They got to spend the day laying down (rained) and so did I! Slept most of it. We didn't pull in the driveway until 10:15 pm Sunday night! LOL! In all my years of showing, this was the biggest show I've even shown in! Classes were big, a couple of mine had almost 30 horses in them! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

thank goodness for helpful neighbors.
i had a great time at my sister's. we went to the beach a couple of times. in the early morning, they allow dogs to run off leash, so it was fun to go see the dogs running in the surf and digging in the sand. they really have a big time, you just have to smile for them. we went to a water park saturday night after it had gotten dark and cooled off, walked out onto a long pier and talked and caught up, watched people fishing. had a long talk at starbucks over coffee. took a nap or two. just had a really great time. it was hot though, high 90's with a heat index of over 105. it was good to get home and see the horses this evening though. my son and niece did a good job taking care of everything.
well, headed to bed. have a good night.

here's my news on Zortea. I've been sacking him out the past few days. Used a towel, saddle pad, lead rope, lariat and training stick. touched him all over his topline and beneath his belly too. picked out all his feet. he doesn't like to lift them quickly but I got it done slowly. he is terrified of fly spray so I have to spray a cloth then rub it over him, which is time consuming. we'll work on this as time allows. he's not super food motivated. when he's watching the object he won't be distracted by a carrot or cookie. he does move away from whiskey for long stretches now. before he was on his tail every time he moved. I can catch him in much quicker time. it's very humbling to earn the trust of a wary horse. it's been awhile since I've had to prove myself

I got out early and mowed and weedeated what I could. I had to run get a shower then the farrier came to trim Deacon. Once that was done I went to the grocery store got our food then I had to go pick up a few bales of hay. I finished around 12:15, that was all I could get done before the terrible heat sat in. I turned Deacy out to graze and sat in the shade and watched him while a nice breeze was blowing :) Have a wonderful weekend ♥

Spent time with the herd yesterday and today. Cleaned out and straightened the tack room. Got stung by a wasp while doing so. Worked Ace in the round pen and then let him walk on the walker. He did really good. Gave the horses their vaccination shots. They are all still clean from their last bath. All is going well. Enjoying my week away from work. Have a great weekend.

off work tomorrow. I don't think I can get much of a ride in but will hose Deacy down and get the dried mud off of him. Then I have to mow a few spots so when I'm done with that the heat will be set in to much for me to do anything else :) Have a great day!

Gosh, it's so like any project to get delayed, cost more, and take longer than expected, but you don't think of your actual trip to get supplies to be a problem. Must have been a really long train, or was it dropping off/picking up new cars? Hope you had enough gas in the truck, and an empty enough bladder.
I hope to go visit my sister this weekend, so may be off line. She and her hubby bought a townhouse in Charleston down on the coast. I'm ready for some beach and shrimp time. Gonna go get my sister in law's grocery shopping done and then pick her up from the mental health facility today. She sounds good on the phone and they say she's ready to be released already.
Well, hope you have a great thursday. Don't get too hot doing that fencing. Take care.

So you'll be fencing and sweating right along with the horses. Tis the season.
I've been busy keeping stuff watered, it's turned so hot and dry. We've only had one tenth of an inch of rain this month, and that was on the 2nd. The critters are all drinking like crazy too, of course.
Turns out Madison has swimmers ear. I had no idea that could be so painful. She got some drops, which h already seem to be helping a little.
Almost got time to ride yesterday, but not quite. Oh well, maybe another day.
Hope you have a good hump-day.

Yeah, nothing like heat and humidity. We had a couple of nice days this past weekend, but the temps are climbing again as the week goes along.
Not much going on here. Looks like today will be on the road with grocery shopping and taking my daughter to the doctor's cause she's developed a bad earache, the kind that wakes you up in the middle of the night, poor baby. She's pitiful.

Did Cisco see the vet Saturday? What did they say & do?

The new profile picture is of Whiskey and Smooch meeting through the fence! He is doing very well and the kids love him, so does Susan. Deacon would whinny here and there the 1st 2 days but sense then he has been fine. Of course he is getting 100% of my attention so he is eating that up. Cliff has been working on framing in the stall area to reinforce it. We were going to add some metal to the roof area but mother nature had a different plan for yesterday afternoon ~ yes the heavens opened up and we got hit by another storm that graced us with an 1" of rain. We did get the 2 panels plus the gate panel situated around the stall so Deacon now has afternoon & evening shade. Deacon welcomed the rain yesterday because it has been so hot here. He had a spa day Saturday and lots of grazing time in the yard. Yesterday he was groomed and turned out in the yard again. It has been to hot to ride. I hope everyone has a wonderful week ahead ♡

So sorry I haven't been on. HC was down, then I had long shifts at work, making it impossible to vote. The wind was so hot when I got off work, Sunday night, my eyes burned. I came home, watered some of my trees, filled Sadie's water and splashed her butt with the hose. I got a dirty look, lol. What a brat. She's doing well, drinking lots of water. Thankful the heat doesn't seem to bother her. I started her on psyllium pellets, again. I mixed them with carrots and apples. She'd eat them without a treat, but I love to spoil her. And yes, I pay for it. Lol. Love and a vote.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well I'm not liking these hot days at all! Today was like 90, so needless to say, horses didn't get turned out! I did get all the mowing finished in 3 days, so the place shouldn't be a hay field when I get home next Sunday night. Trailer is in place and half packed! Just need to put extra bedding and all their feed and hay in tomorrow. Then hit the road about noon time! Of course it's going to be another hot one! I don't envy them in that trailer! I lunged Paige and did showmanship. Indy got to free play. Then Honey and I went down about 3 pm and did hay and water. And by the way, Honey did a sit stay and watched me pick stalls, empty water buckets 70 feet from the barn and then I filled them and hayed the horses. She never moved! This little pup is so smart! Love her! Well, I won't be on again till next Monday! So take care, vote when you can for my herd and I'll try to check in on FB during the show. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

so the horses are liking their new treat and Jazz takes her meds tucked in one? yay!!! makes life easier. (did you call them squeezey buns?) what are they like?
well, on top of the busy week ive had, i spent friday afternoon and evening trying to help get my sister in law into a mental health facility. she's bipolar on top of being blind, and every now and then has an episode and winds up spending a couple of weeks at the facility. it's an hour and a half away, so i was glad she consented to go with her sister instead of me having to take her cause i had to be up at 4 the next morning for work. her daughter graduates college in 2 weeks, so i hope she's out and better by then. then yesterday was a long work day, home late, so i just got on HC briefly before going to bed.
Allie has been doing well, getting pretty darn soft in her face at a walk, so ive been adding in some short trotting too. but she gets worried and goes faster and faster again. not sure i should keep trotting short and mixed in with tons of walking, or if i should do a lot of trotting until she decides it's no big deal. any ideas? there's not much steering at the trot yet, so not sure how much obstacles will help.
well, off to church. hope you are having a great weekend. take care.
