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).

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well we got the snow! YUK! Just about 8 inches of the white heavy type! It kinda stopped by about 11 am, so that's when I hit the deck running! Well, not really running! If you really know me, you know my knees don't allow that! LOL! But the tractor, shovel and snow thrower and I all had a good 3 hour and 10 minute workout! Needless to say, horses got hay and fresh water at lunch time and then I got the wood burner and a nap! Along with a couple of Advil! And guess what, this was only a minor one, more coming for Monday night into Tuesday, this time could be better than a foot of snow! Looks like winter is now in full gear! Double Yuk! Oh well, nothing I can do about it, just clean it up! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

it was very nasty yesterday- cold, windy, and rainy. looks like it may try to clear up today, im sure the horses are happy. they're out taking naps in the pasture now. will wander out later and see who might volunteer for a ride if its not too mushy.
i saw someone at work who also might want kitten after she gets her male kitten neutered, so that makes 3 maybes. gotta get on the horn and get the first claimer connected or crossed off the list.
well, hope you have a good weekend.

It's Caturday =^.^=
I sure hope you like the new farrier :) Silent votes for the rest of the herd. Thank you all for my birthday wishes here on HC & FB! I had a really nice day. First of all we went to the grocery store, after unloading and putting everything up I gave the horses their afternoon hay. It is so muddy here. It will take a good while to dry out, so no riding. It will be in the 70's for 4-5 days so while I'm off work Tuesday, I will haul out and ride. I brushed and groomed the herd that is so relaxing for me. Of course I sat while they ate their dinner. That was about it for me, had to work today so I hit the hay early :)

THANKS FOR THE PRAYERS, IT HELPS A LOT.....
Today will be the tough one, Jackie's grandson Adam wants to play his bagpipes at the service, Amazing Grace, she was so proud of her family. Jackie was in a Bell Ringer group and they want to do something at the service as well, she was a very active member of her community and visitation was wonderful, people were lined up outside the building to get in to see her family, I'm going to need lots of tissues today....she will be missed, We left a vote, Love Donna Lee

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well we had a sunny kinda warm day today. It hit like 37 degrees and melted off a little of the snow and ice. But that's just to make room for tonight's storm that's movin' on in! Now the prediction is 4 to 6 inches before stopping late Saturday after noon. Took another wheel barrel of 3 bales of hay to the barn. So we're good to go a few day. My hay man has really gone up in price, now up to $6.50 delivered and stacked. From $5.25 last year this time. Oh well! Kids gotta have hay! Got Paige lunged and a nice short ride in on her, she's a dream! Got Indy free lunged and we played ball, but he's not the ball player that H.T. was, that's for sure! Then when I got Bullseye in there, it was double duty! I fired up the quad and dragged the area, he either ran next to me or along side of the drag, so he got a good 20 minute work out! Think I'll do that twice a week with him, he's been getting a little feisty in his stall! And now we watch the weather channel on the cell phone and wait for the snow! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

SAD NEWS TO SHARE....
David's sister, Jackie has lost her battle with cancer. She was a 5 year breast cancer survivor and this dreadful disease returned this fall, after lots of tests etc. it was determined to be in her liver, gall bladder and ovaries it was inoperable, in early December they gave her 3-6 months, she died on Sunday afternoon, with her family close by. Jackie spent her entire life giving to others, we called her Saint Jackie, she will be missed. Love Donna Lee

So sorry I didn't get around to visit yesterday. I got to a few people before work and figured I would get on after I got home, but the evening filled up and I ran out of time. Evenings are always so busy with feeding, making supper, laundry, and helping my daughter with homework.
We are due some rain today too, though not nearly as much as you've had. Glad everyone is doing well and hope you have a good Friday.

I want a good pair of western riding boots. I'll live in them. Lol. I'm not sure when Rick will get the shed up. With the Super Bowl, and the upcoming events, he has to work overtime. He works at a grocery warehouse. Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter, any day that includes food and alcohol, means no days off. He does have Friday, but says he's not doing anything. Understandable, but hard to wait. Austin and I went out to checkout the spot where I want it. Need to level the ground, Getting a good shovel this weekend, so I can start on it. Seems to take me forever to get something done. Ready to get in gear and take a picture of it......And thanks for the birthday wishes. Love and a vote.

HI Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well there was about 1/2 inch of snow this morning, guess we got some after all over night. But it did warm up to about 37, overcast, but still melted it off. I was happy about that, cause it melted a little more of the ice from last week too. Got Paige and Indy lunged and showmanship with both. I love showmanship class. Can you tell! LOL! Weathermen are keeping an eye on this storm coming in from out west, Saturday could be our first major snow storm of 2015! Hope not! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

My dad made me. Dino size mounting block which is just high enough for me to swing a leg over without pulling on him. I could never manage from the floor without a stirrup..
Cheeky lot, sounds like they were very content with their cosy house, I'm sure they'd make it known if they were hungry.

01/22/2015 02:15.24 PM Report This Comment
Yep sounds
Ike you've got it just right. I always do a little ground work before riding, with Dino it's more to judge what kind of mood he's in, I find he's a very complex horse mentally and it's easier to asses him, sort of, before I get on so I know how to react.
Hopped up on Dino bareback yesterday to see how he way going. We just had a little waddle around the pasture and a splash through our puddles.
Hope you're having a good week

It started raining on me on my way home from work. After changing I went to the barn and the horses were already in their stalls waiting on me. I fed them a little early and sat and watched them eat for awhile. The rain has been steady-never stopped sense it started. I have over 1" of rain already!! Mudstang horses in the making =)

I worked from 2 to close, Tuesday, but still had a nice birthday. Got a $20 tip. I told Rick I wanted money for boots. He said he wasn't giving me that much. Said he'd help put the shed up. That works. Austin works on the days I don't, so it's been hard to work on it. With the Super Bowl coming here, Rick's working overtime. Going to be crazy here. The traffic's going to be ridiculous. Thankful I won't be stuck in it. Love always and a vote. <3

Good to hear you were able to get some hay in, that's usually what happens to me with Lilly, I just get her clean and then she rolls in the mud !Jack pooped, yaaa, he held his head up for a while as Bella washed his face, Casey and I stood him up for a few minutes and that just totally tuckered him out, he still is not eating which is very concerning to me and the vet, I am just so exhausted , having some emotional memories of remembering caring for my mom 5 weeks straight till she passed all the time praying for a miracle, I know he is just a goat but there is a love there of not being able to make him better on a faster note if at all rode Lilly on Monday for a while in the arena it was chilly and soggy but it was a blessing, love Suz and Lilly

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well 14 degrees when we feed this morning. And my equine dentist was coming at 9 am, it was only up to 17 degrees then and the barn heater had it about 44 in there. But the floor was cold and even with my pack boots on, my toes and feet got cold. So after 3 hours in there, the house was looking really good. Paige and Indy were fantastic as usual for Paul. Bullseye, not so good, he's always a stinker! But Paul got him done, he only needs a little filing usually, and Pauls great, no charge on him ever! Go figure, you would think that with dragging Paul all over his stall, it would cost twice as much! LOL! Needless to say, lunch only for them and I stayed in the house trying to defrost! So far, our snow for this afternoon hasn't appeared! And I hope it don't! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Cheryl & Cisco, bummer about you getting rain for a few days. It's about 70 today and drops into the mid 40s at night so nothing too bad. I guess that means the horses are going to be a muddy mess for you pretty soon. I'm planning on going out and seeing Koot tonight. Voted. XOXO Danya and Koot

I guess we have a few days of rain again, they are saying we will get 1 1/2 to 2" of rain. We just dired out from the last bit we had :) The herd is happy to have plenty of feed now~glad I remembered to pick it up after work-lol. The cold is returning. I did get to let them graze a little before feeding time last evening. Today I will only get to watch them eat their dinner and nothing else this evening. Have a wonderful hump day ♡

i think today is our last nice day for a while, though my phone only has a 40% chance of wetness listed for the next 5 or 6 days. so glad Cisco did well for you on your ride. do you free lunge him in the round pen or have him on a line? i have panels to set up a round pen but not a good place to set one up, so i usually have to lunge mine on a lunge line, and it does get old when they jerk and play out on the end. i'll set up the round pen when it's time to start riding Allie and take it back down when she's going well. i do have a paddock i rarely use because there's no shade, and ive thought about having a neighbor with a tractor come level it so i can put up the round pen in there and leave it up. hmmmm, will see.
well, do you think the weather will let you get one more ride in today before it gets nasty? i hope so. have the horses resigned themselves to the new hay nets yet? have a good wed.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well still a bunch of spots with ice, so you have to pick you're way down to the barn, but buy the barn is really good for getting the horses out to the indoor. I keep that path well maintained. Ran to town, well took Beast and got more grain for Indy and Bullseye, and Paige's Alfa-Lox. Got home and Lunged Paige and did more of the circle driving, she's really do well with it. Then showmanship. Indy got free lunged and showmanship too. Bullseye just got to run and play, silly donkey! LOL! Snow moving in for Wed afternoon into Thurs. Few inches possible they said. We'll see! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

im impressed that butt-hiking doesnt upset you. it would probably put me on the ground. glad you were able to ride.
ive found another "maybe" for the kitten if the first one doesnt work out. it usually doesnt work that im able to find homes for strays, so im excited that it looks like i can this time. though, as you predicted, im getting attached to the little girl. she's so adorable, and our cats are too old to play much anymore- i'd forgotten how much fun that is to watch.
hope to ride today and tomorrow, then our good weather comes to a screeching halt thur with possible snow/sleet mix. ugh.and of course, work.
well, hope you have a good tue and maybe get to ride again. take care.

So happy to hear you finally got to ride, I bet you felt great !!

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well it was about 1/2 inch of ice on top of the frozen ground this morning when I went to feed. Driveway was a sheet of ice with a layer of snow on top of it. We must have had some snow during the wee hours of the night. Needless to say, 100lbs of ice melt down, between driveway and by the barn to the indoor. By noontime I was able to get them to the indoor for some exercise. Then I had the chiropractor this afternoon, all the while driving Beast, it was snowing again! Is it spring yet???

Ooo what a clever idea, I have problems with Dino and his giraffe neck. Mostly the fact I have to try and keep his head up so he doesn't spit it all over me. I shall be trying apple sauce with Bo he's very adverse to trying any type of worm prevention at all.

Enjoyed seeing the pic of your guys trying to eat from their hay nets.
May have found kitten a home, but the man hasn't been filled in on the fact that he's getting a cat, lol. A lady in church, her mom died over the past year and she wants to get the kitten for her dad. I hope he likes the idea, she would help keep him from being so lonely. She's very playful in the morning and fun to watch.
Another pretty day yesterday, but pretty windy. Did ride BJ. I've found what works well to curb Allie's pushiness is to do a 5-10 min mini session after her supper and practice any of the groundwork exercises we've been learning. That way, she doesn't get bored and it reminds her that I'm in charge.
So glad you were able to ride and Cisco was a good boy. How's your weather looking today? Hope you have a good Monday.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. First let me say that Shannon with Zip has been trying to log on all last night and today, and not being able to. I've had problems, but have been getting on. She's also dealing with computer problems, so she asked if everyone would please vote Zip! Well I got the am feeding done just as the freezing rain hit us. And at 22 degrees, you would have thought it to be snow, but no! And with a frozen ground, it's an ice skating rink out there. Went down at 1:30 to give lunch and made darn sure I had my Yak-Trax on my boots. I'll be going down shortly for pm feeding and it's not much better and dark now too! Oh the joys of winter!
