My Horse's Achievements: Just being able to ride him - he was a rescue horse and had been severely abused. 3-17-13: Just got back from a 2 day A.R.T. Clinic at the LBJ Grasslands in Decatur. Awesome clinic, great place to ride. Cisco did so well I was able to ride him in his halter the 2nd day, and he didn't lose it when the cows came crashing thru the trees, and he found out they would run from him! Big weekend for my boy.

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. Yes, we can get in using the backdoor method as I called it. But votes are not counting and points are done! If you notice, there is no where to bring up "My Account" so you won't see your points or any rewards, cause there are none anymore. It's just a matter of time before you can't even get HC to come up at all. At any rate, I'll still use the backdoor to leave a blog of the days activities. So today we reached a high of 72 degrees! That's 4 in a row, but it's ending soon! New farrier out today to do Indy. What a difference! Went and got 20 bags of shavings, the really big ones! Unloaded them, then turned Indy and Bullseye out in their pastures! Yes, it was dry enough and there was some grass. Washed the truck too! Dragged the indoor arena. Brought them in and then took Honey on her one mile walk! Yep, I was done! Oh Marissa is off baby watch, mare foaled last night at 8:30 pm a colt! Sorrel with flaxen tail so far, mane might lighten up. Cutie! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

A Vote for You!!
Have to play catch up again. No internet this morning due to the storm. Calling for up to 20 inches but Mother Nature is getting a bit lazy, well or at least not aggressive yet. Only have about 5-6 inches. Mikey has dr. appointment today at 1, so hopefully he can make it. 100 miles 1 way. He has 4 wheel drive, he can not drive himself, being legally blind, but his friend took off 1/2 day from work to help him out. Schools are all called off, not so much because of the snow, but blizzard condition with winds. Could not finish leaving comments yesterday, but most everyone at east received a vote. Had to run get neighbor his pills at Ladysmith, then after dinner, went to pick up sawdust for bedding, to make sure everyone will stay dry. 12 bags (100 # feed bags) will go a long ways, then bedding gets recycled in the spring on the fields....animals are fertilizer factories.

Wow, 89? It's like winter never happened. I was thinking, it didn't get cold till dec, only a few cold days in jan, and back to warm this month.
Did all that wind dry the mud up a bit? Hope you have a better day to work Sunset today.
I went and drove a Ford yesterday. A 2005 but looked and drove like it's brand new. My dad is worried about the engines during that time frame and thinks I should steer clear of that one, but it seems like either the kinks have been ironed out by now or it didn't have any kinks. Again, we'll see. But it left no horse time. Allie has a swollen hock anyway, I'm sure due to one of her high-spirited run-in with her herdmates. She's not limping on it at all, thank goodness.
Well, off to work. Hope you have a great friday.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Okay, is it just me or is anyone else having trouble signing in on HC! It's like the My Account, and Login boxes are gone! I clicked on HOTD and voted, then it says must sign in and I did! But I can't get to the My Account page at all! Weather was just delightful today, hit 67 F with strong sun! Snow is gone, well except for the walls of it I plowed it into! Had another great showmanship lesson with Paige. Then Marissa tacked her up and showed me what they are working on with her. Looking good! Got home and Honey and I did our mile walk, it was so nice out! Just a shirt, no sweater or jacket needed today! New farrier is coming in the morning to properly trim Indy. YAY! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi & a vote,
I won't ride alone anymore even though Rocky's an old steady now. I used to not give it a thought, but the older I get, it could just be asking for trouble if something did happen unexpected and no one was around.

Makes sense that he wouldn't want you messing with the younger horses when no one is around. My riding ring is up by the road, I figure someone would eventually see me lying out there, lol. Hope you get to resume training today and it's dry enough. You have fans waiting to hear how the saddling goes, lol.
I did a little light groundwork with Allie yesterday. I discovered that she isn't doing her turns on the hindquarters right, she's more pivoting around the middle of her body, so I'm going slowly, a few steps at a time, to try and clean that up. Marion has been giving me tips with her Showmanship background. I'm also trying to get her used to the strangles vaccine catheter up her nose. BJ and Gracie are both so reactive about it that they have to be sedated. Part of the problem might be my vet's approach, he does it so fast I think it scares them. Anyway, gonna try to lay a better foundation for Allie. I also trimmed Cinni's fronts.
I'm supposed to go see the F250 today. I don't HAVE to pick between the 2 trucks, but they're my top picks for now, so we'll see.
Well, hope you have a great thursday.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well started out with rain and drizzle and damp. But burnt off and sunshine and 52 degrees. Indy got worked and then I tried doing the showmanship backing squares with him. He got it going to the left, but to the right he kept wanting to stop and do pivots instead. It's hard to think about moving, backing and being on the correct front foot to not get the cross over and have them step on themselves! Bullseye got to free play. Then Honey and I did another one mile walk. Hopefully tomorrow it'll be sunny and they say in the low 60's! WHOO HOO! Dry it up! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Stopping by with a Wednesday morning vote! Hope everyone had had a great week soooo far! I have, it's muddy so haven't been able to ride this week yet:( But since we got the rain everything has greened up sooooooooooo much!!!!! The horses went out in the front pasture yesterday, there's good grass for them to eat and we are officially out of hay! Plan to get some more maybe Friday, after it dries out. The goats are also doing well! Voted!

Aw, good Sunset, beating Cisco out for treats. He's gonna have to up his game, lol.
Yeah, good riddance to skunks. I'm amazed at how many different patterns they come in. But still, bye-bye.
Well got a little rain last night, haven't checked the rain gauge yet to see how much. If it's measurable at all, I'm happy.
Not much here. Still busy shopping for a used truck. Saw one yesterday that's all set up to pull and in good shape, but it's priced a little high and will soon need new tires. I'll keep it on the "definite maybe" list. Hoping to see another one this week if schedules can cooridnate.
Well, hope you have a great wednesday.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well another 46 degree day, but overcast. Still did melt off more snow and some places the mud and grass is drying out a little. But possibly rain tomorrow! Got Indy and Bullseye done. Then headed over to Paige. Marissa's back to work, yay! So I lunged Paige, then had a showmanship lesson. WOW learned the proper way to back a horse in the letter C and then in a square! Talk about concentration on what front foot is where to get that box square! Gonna be working on this for a while for sure! It's all about timing, and I'm not that big on paying attention! LOL! But just like I used to tell my ski students, it comes natural for me cause I do it all the time, so the more you practice, the more it becomes natural for you. So this too will happen for me! Got home and took Honey for our mile walk. Then at 4:20 I finally had lunch! LOL! Then passed out later on for a 90 minute nap! I was whipped! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. What another nice sunny day today! Not as warm, but still hit 46F which is good for us this time of the winter. Got Indy and Bullseye out to the indoor for playtime! Had the big doors open to let air and sunlight in, but the rider guard doors shut to keep them in! LOL! Then Honey and I did another walk, today we did 1.1 miles. I'm building up my knees and muscling in them slowly! Tonight going down into the low 20's, so the wood burner will be fired up in the house and Indy's heater will be on for him. Tomorrow not much warmer, but Wed and Thurs going into the high 50's again! Yes, I'll take it! More snow melted today, and all the ice is really gone now. Couple of more days and we should see ground again! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi & a vote,
Today was a little cooler than the last two, but still in the 40's. I was able to take another ride on Rocky with my friend and her buckskin, so that was nice, there is still snow on most of the ground, but some icy areas starting form from the melt and re-freeze at night, so we had to avoid those spots. I had to take advantage of the extra day off from work! And Blue got to come along too with his friend, Hailey.

Jumping up and down like you're gonna hop on? Big reaction to that, huh? Hope you can saddle her soon and move towards riding. I'm sure you can't hardly wait.
It was really nice here too. I took Gracie out for a short ride in the field and enjoyed it. She of course, had eyes only for the grass. BJ stuck his nose under her when we got home, like he thought he was gonna nurse, and then made that milk mouth motion when she gave him the stink eye. Really horse? You're almost 9 years old! I've never seen a colt over 6 months do that.
Well, off to work. Hope your week gets off to a good start.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. WOW it hit 58 degrees today with sunshine! Just about all the snow is gone, except for my wall of course! And some of thicker ice is still hanging on! But tomorrow might take care of that! Had the barn door open all afternoon. Mo was in the crate so he wouldn't take off on me and miss curfew for the night. Indy got a good spa day and then free lunging in the indoor! Bullseye got to free run and play inside too! Just too muddy in any of the pastures to even think about turnout! Did a few little things outside to straighten up over on the crushed stone driveway to the big trailer, it was all dug up from pushing the snow up onto my wall! Then Honey and I went for our first walk of the year down the road. We only did about 3/4 mile total. I have to build my knees up to walking again, without blowing them out! Need to show this summer!

Hi & a vote,
Today, Blue had his combined test for AKC Community Canine and Therapy dog and PASSED both!! I am so proud of him! As reward (besides special treats), I brought him to the barn to run with his BFF, Hailey (my friend's dog). Then my daughter and I went on a trail ride on Rocky & Cowboy in the snow that is still remaining. But melting faster each day it's warm. It was so fun to get out and enjoy riding Rocky!

Didn't have any horse time yesterday, mostly because I was really seriously looking on line for trucks, but also because of some light rain in the afternoon, not even enough to make it muddy though. I found several to follow up on, if they don't get sold before I have time to follow up.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well temps were like springtime! We hit 57 on the farm here and over at Marissa's it was 61! Having a big melt down of snow and ice for sure! Couple of more days of this and it'll all be about gone! YAY! Probably just in time for another snow storm then! LOL! Well today went to He$$ in a handbasket fast! My appointment to have my taxes down ran late, can't complain cause it's a free thing for Seniors and low income families in our County. So then I get over to work Paige and told I have 12 minutes only to use the indoor cause then it's off limits for the pending sale of a horse to be worked and shown to people. So I hand walk Paige and get out. Then groomed her, did a few things and it's like 3:40 now and still no people about this sale horse! So Ticked off! Got home and it was like 4:15, so just gave late lunch to my boys. Tomorrow I'm home all day, so they will be tended too like normal and out for playtime in the indoor. It's a muddy mess now getting to the indoor, but sure as heck better than the frozen ice clogs! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi & a vote,
Blue went for practice at PetsMart last night and earlier today. Tomorrow is his test. Then this afternoon, I was at the barn with my daughter because she used Cowboy and Rocky to video some of the skills she needs to video for her Vet Tech and she needed me to take the videos. After that we went to dinner and now I'm home. Blue's had his bath and is all clean and fluffy for tomorrow.

Hi & a vote,
Took Blue the dog to practice last evening at PetsMart walking on leash around other dogs. He still tries to react at first (pull a little and give a bark at another dog) until he settles down, but settling in much quicker with more and more practice. This might trip him up on his testing. We'll see on Sunday, 19th, test date for Blue! In the meantime, it's going to be warming up for the weekend and next week too. We'll go from snow to mud! Rocky will be loving MUD!

Hi. Glad Sunset is getting used to haltering and you don't have to leave one on her all the time. That didn't take too long to get her to that point.
Rode Allie just at a walk yesterday, did some tight circles, really asking for alot of bend, and then some straight lines corner to corner. Sounds fancy, but really, it was too damp to go any faster, and I wanted to work on keeping Ms Zoom Zoom in a walk.
Well, off to work today. Hope you have a great friday.
