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).

Stopping by with a Monday morning vote! Well we got some unexpected rain early this morning:( we don't want the rain since we're building. Even though we already have our house up and we're working on the inside it's a pain to have to walk through the mud. I hope y'all have a great start to your week! Voted! ~Brooke and Copper~

Yes, I do flex her from the ground too. She knows it's coming before I ask when I'm on the ground, and usually flexes 3 times for every one time I ask, lol. Sometimes, I just point to her belly and she'll flex.
Did it stay dry last night? The weather has sure turned it into a guessing game, huh?
We had some more small storms come thru last night, so it'll probably still be too wet to ride, but that's okay. I pulled Allie up just to feed and brush her yesterday, and she enjoyed that. She was surprised when I turned her back out without having to do any work. I'll try to do that again today.
Well, hope your week gets off to a good start. Take care.

i wanted to set the record straight about the high profile news reports against Cypress Creek Equestrian Center, Darolyn Butler, and the horses that got flooded out during our bad rain. She's been around for many years, has 70 horses on 9 acres and uses some land around her for turn out. she's 66 yrs old and been a champion endurance rider. she cannot sell that land due to flooding. it's gotten worse as construction pops up all around her. she was wading/swimming into the rising waters, trying to round up her horses until the police forced her to stop. they made her sit, rest, and gave her coffee and donuts that they had because they thought she was going into shock. someone snapped a pic and posted it to FB saying, "she has coffee while others save her horses." she takes care of her horses. this comes from Dr Dutton, the vet that I've switched to. he was there for the rescue and also judges endurance races so he knows first hand the real story. she probably needs to begin downsizing but I think we all know that many people have too many horses on small acreages, myself included. I had 12 horses/ponies on this 4 acres and some probably wouldn't approve of that. all of us do it a bit differently.
buttercup checked out good and didn't need a hock injection. Princeton had a hoof abscess and has to stay out of mud for a week while the wrap protects it. so far so good.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Thank you all for the congrats on Paige's HOTM! What a great surprise! Show went well, weather was cold and rainy however! But Paige placed very well in her Halter classes, just behind three top heavy duty halter horse mares under all 4 judges! So if the biggies didn't show up, my little mare would have been tops! But she is in my book no matter what. Very tough Showmanship patterns, but we placed in 6 out of 8 of them under 4 judges. I personally got knocked down cause I can't run the extended trot! It's a reason it's called Select Showmanship (over 50)! Hello judges! LOL! Indy had fun, got lunged and loved on. And little miss Honey was a hit with everyone! She became buds with a Swiss Mountain Bernese that was three times her size! She handled the show scene and living in the LQ trailer very well! Now we're both off to catch up on much needed rest. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

yes, you may have your hands full with Cisco when you can ride him again. i hope not. he may be seeing you in a whole new light now that you are his sole source of food and water and companionship.
ive always heard that to be comfortable loping, a horse has to lope and lope often. but Allie has kind of taken that option away for the time being, there will be no (intentional) loping until we are totally solid and comfortable at the trot. and i do mean totally, lol. some of the old time Tacky folks post pics of their first rides and it is literally walking one full circle around the roundpen or one time down the driveway and get off. ive always wondered if such a short simple ride does any good, but maybe it does.
we finally had some good rain yesterday and early this morning, almost 2 inches, yay! we really needed it. the riding ring is too soupy to ride in today, but im not complaining. Allie could use a few days break anyway.
well, hope you're having a great weekend.

hoping the rain has stopped for a few days like they have predicted LOL It looks like it will be back by the middle of next week. Hope you can get Cisco out today and tomorrow at least. Maybe that water turn off valve will dry soon other wise I'd get that longer hose. They always come in handy anyway right :)

Oh no, thunderstorm and hail? Glad you and Cisco got in okay, sounds like a bad one.
Rode Allie in just the halter yesterday and just another short ride of walking, circling, and stopping. I was scared to death and prayed like mad throughout, but she was calmer. She's pretty resistant to the halter too, her first reaction to pressure of any kind is to pull against it. I've done flexing and one rein stops till I'm blue in the face, but I'll keep doing them, dont know anything else thatll help. Still, I was pretty happy with our ride yesterday because she was more relaxed and confident.
Well, headed off to work. My daughter is spent last night with a friend, so I don't have to worry about leaving her like I usually do. Hope you have a good saturday with better weather.

Wow, amazing that he has even exceeded the vet's expectations. Due to great care and prayers. Glad you were able to hook up with your friend, that's always fun.
Well, I got on Allie-bug yesterday. I almost didn't cause it was kinda windy but that didn't seem to bother her. We were both so tense we could hardly breathe, but we did it. When I went to one rein stop her to the right (that's the side I stopped her from when she bolted with me) she really threw her head in the air and resisted, so she's pretty scared of that side. I may try her steering off the halter for a while, but she so disrespects the halter, even the stiff one with the nose knots. If she spooks or gets fast, I know she's going to dump me cause she'll be afraid of me hurting her mouth, and I'm gonna do a pretty firm one rein stop cause I'll be afraid of her dumping me. It's a catch 22 situation, so need to come up with a plan. Any ideas are welcome.
Hope you have a great friday and stay dry. Take care.

Hoping to be able to pick up another corral panel, next week. Going to get one instead of 2. Waiting for a way to pick up the material to put a wall on Sadie's shade. Wish I had a truck instead of a car. Anxious to get it done. Leaving love and a vote.

Sounds like fixing the water problem is going to be a multi step process. Just like a project to grow and get complicated. And it's gonna take a long time to dry out if you keep getting rain. Yeah, your extra 150' of hose sounds like a good idea.
We're having the opposite here. We have sunny dry days with no rain day after day. Every now and then, they give us a 40% chance of rain for variety, I guess, but the days look the same, sunny and dry. Things aren't bad yet, but it'll be a rough summer if it stays this way.
Well, better get the day going. Hope you have a good Thursday and take care.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well it was a very busy day with getting ready for the first show of the season. Got the trailer hooked up and all loaded up, except for some last minute stuff in the morning. Horses clipped, Lunged and turned out for an hour of pasture time too. Then weed whacked all around the place! I'm exhausted! Mo came home, finally after 5 days on the lamb! LOL! He was in the barn when I came back from Lungeing Paige. He was talking up a storm with me and was very happy to rub against my leg and be picked up and petted! He ate some of his food and then went outside and sat in the grass. Tonight he's on the MIA list again. But I know he's all right at least. Just not fond of Honey, that's all! LOL! I'll be back on line on HC on Sunday night. We show Friday and Saturday, I'll stay over night then and leave Sunday morning sometime for home. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

So did your bet pay off and you stayed dry last night? How is Cisco's wound doing? That sucks that the meds you need for Bo are on backorder. That's happening more and more often, it seems.
I lunged Allie yesterday with tack and her buddies, and she did well. So glad the problem isn't the saddle. So as long as she has a friend stuck to her side, she should be good, lol.
Well, off to work. Have a great hump-day.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well, it was raining when I got up, knew it was going to. So this morning went up to Wally World and did a big grocery shopping for the horse show. I'll be making sausage, peppers and onions for dinner for 15 people, geezzz I can just about handle making food for myself! Wish me luck! LOL! Then lunged Paige, who is feeling her oats so to say! And when we were just about done, the lightning and thunder started. I knew that I might have a problem with Honey, so I got Paige back to the barn and on the wall. Up to the house, and sure enough, Honey was panicked! Shaking like heck and panting! Got her ThunderShirt right on her and laid on the floor with her. After it all stopped, I took her to the barn with me as I still had to lunge Indy. She was okay in the barn. After I finished Indy, I trimmed Bullseye's feet. Then Honey and I went back to the house, she was pretty calm then and it was just raining. So now I have to worry about being away from the house when a storm is approaching. Poor baby girl. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

yeah, that hauling water is a pain, it's so heavy and sloshy. i have to haul it for the outdoor dogs, and it's no fun. hope you can get that fixed soon.
lunged Allie with no tack or buddies yesterday, and she was middle scale anxious and fast, but her buddies messed me up by hanging at the front fence the whole time. she does seem to settle better with just a few steps, turn, stop, wait a few seconds, and repeat. im wondering if her cycles arent interfering also because she had way less temper yesterday than the day before. ive never had a real moody mare, so i guess im due. but i'll figure that out as i go along. today is the day to lunge with all the tack and her buddies in the riding ring with her, see how that goes.
well, i cut bushels of grass yesterday, got a bit sunburned and tired. my neighbor came over and back filled around the pool all the dirt he had taken out to level the site. ive got to hook up the pump, level that dirt and cover it, treat algae and pH for it to be ready to swim in. oi. it's a lot of work.
hope you have a great tuesday. take care.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well another busy one today, make hay while the sun shines! Since Tuesday we are in for thunderstorms and rain! Took Honey for a ride in the truck, she really likes to be with me. Went to the dollar store and then Tractor Supply for Paige's grain. On sale plus I had two $5 off coupons! WHOO HOO! Got home and lunged Paige and did some showmanship work. Then lunged Indy, his legs are staying normal now! WHOO HOO again! Then they got turned out, up to 65 minutes today. Then I mowed the lawn, it needed it again, that's last week and this week. Can't believe how it's growing. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

How was your weekend? Has Scott been able to work on the water main? Are things getting dried out from that incident and all the rain?
I did groundwork with Allie yesterday and was actually planning on getting on and off a few times, but she was anxious and fast again. I think the deciding factor is if her buddies are close by or not, but to be sure it's not the tack or something else, I'll do some experiments over the next few days. "Loping her down" just made her worse, so I would ask for a lope, but ask for a yield and stop after only a 1/4 of a circle, then ask again in the other direction. We ended on a good note, but she got all antsy and spooky again when I had her tied to untack her. Don't know why this sudden separation anxiety. Nothings going to be easy with her.
Well, hope your week is off to a good start. Take care.

HI Cisco, here's a vote for ya. What a busy day! My friend Anthony came up to de-winterize the LQ Trailer. Since we'll be leaving Thursday morning bright and early. Took two hours to really do it all and service the A/C unit too. Paige got lunged and did some showmanship. Indy got lunged, legs doing much better. Then I dragged the indoor really good and washed the big tractor off. Horses and donkey out for pasture time, up to one hour now. They are loving their grass time. Worked with Honey too. I'm exhausted! Tomorrow it's Tractor Supply for Paige's grain and mow the lawn. I can't believe how much it grew in a week! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

That's so sad about your friend's horses. So light to no riding for either of them?
Glad the ladies are entertaining themselves with their food buckets. That's so funny.
I had a good visit with my folks the last couple of days. It was kinda bittersweet though. It was probably the last visit with them in their old house,which holds a lot of memories. They are moving to a retirement neighborhood about 3 miles from their old house, and I think it'll be good for them. They already have some friends who live there, the upkeep and yardwork are done for them, and they even have meals and transportation if needed.
My niece took care of the critters while I was gone and everybody looked good last night at feeding time. Always grateful for a safe trip and saftey for the animals and property when i leave.
Well, hope you're having a great weekend. Take care

Long week...
Well our OT is still on and even tho I had a vacation day this week due to the Buddy Guy concert, I still felt like it was a long week. Did I mention how fabulous the concert was? Trev was very pleased with the guitar pic. I had a great ride on Charlie yesterday, Sterly is doing well. Have a great weekend, Love Donna Lee Hi Cheryl, PS, sorry to hear about your friends horses. Sterly was diagnosed with Kissing Spine years ago, I'm sure there are advancements since then. At the time they had hoped that cortisone injections between the spinal processess would be helpful, in her case there was not enough room for the needle, depending on where in the spine it may not be over, for us it just meant no more riding. They also said that sometimes the bones will fuse and then there is no more pain. prayers for your friend and her horses. Love ya
