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).

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. What a horrible hazy hot and humid day! At 7:30 am when I feed it was all ready over 70 degrees with 90% humidity! I was soak-n-wet just feeding, cleaning stalls and watering and haying them! All in 40 minutes! Then I get a weather alert on my cell phone, poor really poor air quality, people with lung problems(asthma, COPD and such) stay inside in the AC. Well I ventured out to go food shopping and thought I was going to melt and drop! Needless to say, no riding today and no turn out either. Very bad out there for us northerners! LOL! Horses got fresh water and hay at 2 pm and 6 fans on in the barn! Hopefully tomorrow will be better and Paige's lump will be gone and I can ride! Set up a new trail course yesterday and was really looking forward to riding it! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Come visit me, Nuttin But Good. Thanks Bella Boo of DC #9000!, R.I.P. Hi Tech Image, #13500 THX Mom, Paige & Indy & MWS Zippn By Indy, Tkx Mom, Paige & HT #17500!.

Hi Cheryl & Cisco, geez 90 by 11am. That's just too hot! It was still about 80 when I took Koot out at 6pm last night and it was kinda humid so it felt a lot hotter than that. I bet you're really looking forward to some Fall weather soon :) they just installed a new turnout arena in the field I ride in closer to the main entrance which will be super nice on hot days when I don't feel like walking Koot all the way to the other turn out lol. Voted. XOXO Danya and Koot

funny you should mention the heat! thats what my story is today-lol! Yes it is to much for me as well, must be the humidity:) ♡ nothing new, still hot. Yes they say it is the mildest summer in years and I’m glad but August and September has not spared us from our typical heat of the triple digits so I’m very tired of the heat and I am looking forward to some cooler weather so I can get back to my riding plans. Thank you for your votes here is a click on your horseshoe. Have a wonderful day ;)

Yes, because it felt SO mild this summer, lol. How many days do you usually have in the triple digits?
Really, ours was pretty mild too, about 10ish degrees cooler than normal, but it still felt hot. Maybe we were just spoiled.
Hope Cisco enjoys his new ball like he used to. I ought to get one for Allie-she likes running into things (like people and Cinni).
Well, hope you have a good Tue.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well once again we were spared the storms and rains. So I didn't ride however, Paige's boeing 747 fly bit in the middle of her back is a huge lump now! When I killed that thing on her, I had a handful of blood on me and her back. She swells up so easy! And since it's right where I would be sitting in the saddle, thought it best not to ride! LOL! Went to the BBQ and had some good food with good friends, left when the kids were getting cranky! That's my cue to say, well gotta go home and let the horses out for pasture time! So that's what I did. This time though they got their fly sheets on them. No more big fly bites please! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

you will have to get a picture of them with the ball-I would love to see them :) It does take awhile to see the weight drop off, but I would think yu could really see a difference by now. Wonder why Nugget is gaining, mybe age? yep gonna have to work them more. It will be much better soon. Summers are to hot here-I back off riding as you know in this heat. In about 3 weeks we will be back on our riding schedule though I can see the temps going down already :) ☆ I took my truck Sat. morning to get 2 new tires had 2 new put on a few weeks ago), now I have 4 new all the way around! I did ride Whiskey & Deacon over the weekend. I ground worked Rocket and showed Cliff how to do it. Have a wonderful Labor day! Whinnies & hugs =)

is it winter yet???
The thing with Sterly's breathing is due in part to scar tissue in her lungs from a respiratory virus years ago, that ended her racing career. Lungs don't regenerate. Over the years it has gotten a bit worse, at times like season change and high humidity and high UV. She is for sure a Canadian horse she loves her winter, bring on the cold. She looks like a grizzly bear and she can breath, does it get any better... Ventipulimin is a bronchodilator, it opens up the airways, it is used for horses that have COPD or heaves or even asthma, keep in mind that Sterly is not a complainer, so we have to watch her closely, what you will see is, flared nostrils and short quick shallow breaths, get her in where it is cool with the big fan on her and she settled back to normal within 10 minutes. I only use the meds if she can't settle on her own. I'm sure the Cushings does not help matters, 'cause she has all that extra hair...I trimmed her this summer, but this year it just grew back pretty much as soon as it was gone, I have to prepare, everyday I still have her is a blessing, Left a vote, Love Donna Lee

TREV SAYS CANCER IS LIKE A CLUB....
Hi Cheryl, I have to say I don't remember that movie, funny how cancer seems to hit them where it will hurt the most, for Trev, he is a musician and the idea of losing his hearing was just devastating, but like Amanda, he never said anything..it was like hearing or die, duh...sort of a no brainer...he was more bummed about the hair loss and when it grew back in, slowly, it was grey. The one thing I learned, when I start to feel sorry for myself, STOP, count my blessings everyday. I don't think something like this will ever stop being there, thanks for the prayers and support, Love Donna Lee

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Under a storm watch all day, but the sun has been in and out, but you can see the storm all around us. Nothing here on my farm. Kinda happy about that, I got a load of hay delivered today. But the pastures and grass could use a good watering. Of course tomorrow they are calling for the same, and I have a BBQ in the afternoon to go to! We'll see! Got a good ride in on Paige, it was very humid, even in the indoor. So she got a nice full bath with the water rake and scrubbed her tail and mane good too. Nice and white! Ran out of energy, so Indy got the day off. All got hay for lunch, just didn't want to turn them out and have all h*)) break lose and have to scurry to get them in. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Yes, Allie has been officially "backed", lol. Groundwork with her again yesterday. I'm working on teaching her to side pass down the fence. She's having some trouble getting the idea-either tries to drag me down the fence or swings her butt around and faces me. But she did better yesterday than the day before, so she's on the right track. Rode BJ briefly bareback. When I got on, he felt unusually warm, so got off and checked his temp. 101.3. Nuts!!! Don't know what's going on with him, its so weird. Will have the vet out as soon as I can get him, which will probably be wed or Thur.
What concentration do you use of sugar:water for your hummingbirds? Mom told me 1/4 cup sugar to 2 cups water, but the birds aren't liking it (the first batch was a store bought mix).
Awoke to a thunderstorm this morning, so don't know how wet it's going to be today. Hope you have a good Sunday.

PS
Hi Cheryl, Wow, Amanda sounds like one amazing woman. When Trev was diagnosed I remember saying to David, I can understand if someone can not deal with this...I just wonder where the strength comes from? I think I am a pretty normal person, with pretty normal values and I definitely believe in a higher power, but my God, I can not imagine having to face something this big. Trev is improving daily, slowly, my fear is that as things get better, that nasty tumor is still there and really it is a crap shoot as to what it will do, is he just getting stronger so he can go thru this all over again??? As for the heating bill, well, I look at it like, you have to have heat and that is how much it costs, we are lucky because we do get the farm discount on propane, can't even think about if if we paid full price. Hydro (electric) is another sad story, I also do budget billing for that. That means for 10 months of the year I pay a set amount and then for the 2 remaining months you catch up or you have a credit, yeah like that would ever happen? So last winter we got caught on the propane, our budget bill was $154/month, but like I said, very cold, price increase and Trev needed more heat. This year we are budgeted for $265/month, hopefully we will come out even. Hydro budget last year was $230/month, this year it has increased to $300/month. And yes, that is partly because I run two heated water buckets in the barn all winter plus I have a deicer in the large water tank outside all winter, what can I do, they have to have water? So, I guess you don't want to come live in Canada? Love Donna Lee

KICKING IS IMPROVING...
Well, let's see, Charlie is kicking much less, and with all the padding up, I feel better about less chance of injury. From his behavior under saddle I have to say he has NO UNSOUNDNESS, all is well. Sterly is plugging along she never complains, we keep a close eye this time of year, if she is laboring in her breathing we put her in with her big fan on, she usually settles within 10 minutes. If it is real bad I can give her a bit of Ventipulimin, but they can get dependent on it, so I only use it when necessary. We had a great ride yesterday before it got too hot, today is forecast for showers, sounds like vacuuming and laundry, ugh..we voted, Love Donna Lee

Looks like you got a new horse, dark grey in color, huh? Lol.
I think we only have 2 hummingbirds so far, and I have now officially been grumped at by them when I was refilling the feeder. You've gotta admire their big attitude.
Didn't ride yesterday but did groundwork with Ms Allie and finished by flopping over her back with her standing next to the mounting block. First time she's mostly held my weight. Didn't seem to bother her.
Hope you have a good weekend. Happy Saturday.

did you win the clippers???
Good Morning, I had lots of OT this week, my hands are killing me...I'm still playing catch up from last winter when Trevor was with us, I'm not complaining but, we heat with propane and it was the coldest winter in 22 years, plus propane prices went up 40% plus Trev was cold and so we kept the house warm for him, as a result we were $1206 over budget on heat. It has to be paid by September 1, so the new budget can start, do I need OT?? Yes I do. Charlie and Sterly are good, we will have a nice ride today, this is a long weekend, yippee. we voted, Love Donna Lee

Glad you saved the mocking bird. They're my favorite. We have a couple of nests up close to the house and enjoy watching the babies learn to fly. They hang around for 3 weeks or so after leaving the nest, so we get used to hearing and seeing them hopping around and whistling. Our hummingbird feeder has been up all summer and is just now being visited. I'm excited about that. Only a couple so far, but its fun to watch them.
Kathryn and I rode for about 2 hrs yesterday, in the riding ring and then out in the next door field. The university has plots of corn, soybeans, and I think its sorghum (tall, looks like corn, but isn't?) planted this year. The horses hate riding between the corn rows, so of course, its what we do, lol. We've found that if we take the girls out, BJ runs himself, Allie, and Cinni the whole time so everybody gets excersised at one time. Silly boy. We had to hose all 5 horses off when we got home.
Hope you have a good Friday and get to ride. Take care.
