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).

Sounds like it is doctor time. Maybe you will be lucky and it will be something simple. Lets hope so. Waiting for the snow. Not sure how much. One stations says 2 to 4 the other 4 to 8. so I will just have to wait and see. Got a lot done today. Was going to get my flu shot, but after 20 minutes I left too much to do. Picked up two more Christmas gifts. Went out and saw my boy. The winds made it so cold. Took him in and groomed him. Now just waiting for the snow. Hope you have a good evening. Vicki & Big Jax

Hi Cheryl! I know. They always make such a big deal about things when celebrities are involved, but that's the way our world works it seems. I hope they can get this out sooner than Christmas. That's another two weeks of these firefighters working around the clock. I did get out and see Koot twice this weekend though, but didn't take him out because of the high winds. I saw him Friday and Sunday to give him love and treats! Voted. XOXO Danya and Koot

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well sunny and only hit about 34 today! But it did melt off more, thank goodness! Just making room for tonight's into tomorrow! They are saying starting out as snow and then going to a wintry mix! Oh JOY! Well I felt like myself, so a lot got done and ready for a lost day tomorrow! Hay to the barn. Lot's of wood in boxes to the garage. I've gone through over a cord already burning! Lunged Paige and Indy. Hayed and watered them. Then Honey and I did get in about a mile walk, it was cold and a little windy, but we both bundled up for it! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Yes the snow was fun for two days...but no I wouldn't want to live with it. I was in Chicago one year when my sister lived there. There was so much snow! On the days when it would melt, it was a muddy slush. The cars would get stuck in the snow, it was terrible. A lot of our roads were closed here because people in the south don't know how to drive in snow. lol Have a great week everyone!

What, how did she destroy 2 feed buckets? Sounds like she was being a total pony, lol.
I thought of you and Cisco yesterday. Was brushing horses at feeding time and out of the blue, Allie starts half bowing (and talking). We haven't practiced that trick in 3 or 4 months. So I had to go up to the barn to get peppermints so she could do her trick. And of course, then everybody wanted peppermints too. Dee's trick is to kiss you for mints (Kathryn taught her that).
I was strating to feel as grumpy as the grinch (well, almost), so I did do a very short bareback ride on BJ, mainly to practice turns on the forehand without reins. I had an odd experience: there was a hawk just the other side of the fence pawing at something in the grass. We stopped and watched him for a while but he didn't fly away, so I hopped off and went to investigate, as much to make sure the hawk was okay as anything. He promptly flew away and I couldn't find anything in the grass except that the ground was churned up a little. I'm guessing maybe he was trying to get at a little mole or something underground. Never really seen one act like that before, especially with a human so close by watching.
Well, off to work this chilly morning. Hope you have a great monday.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well made it to the party, after 4 tries to get back up my driveway! And that was after plowing it, but in 2 hours that I was home, it got covered with another inch or more of snow. And dually's are not good in snow going up hills! My road hadn't been plowed yet, so it was fun going that 6/10 of a mile to the highway! Lucky for me, it was done by the time I came home about 11:15 pm. Had a very good time at the party and ate way too much there too! Shot today! One event is enough for me usually, but two in one day, and driving over 120 miles total during a snow storm! I'm whipped! Couch day and trying to sleep and rest! Hopefully feel better tomorrow! Thank the Lord, only one more night out! Christmas Eve dinner with Kate & Eric and their family! Then I'm done! Not a party person or especially a night time person! Kids did fine all day in. We had sunshine for most of the day and temps hit the mid 30's, so a lot of the 4.5 inches of snow melted or compressed down! Cause I wasn't plowing again or snow blowing! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Lol, it's all about food for a horse, isn't it? I guess for most animals too. Pretty sharp little ears on that pony.
Not much going on here. The snow was all melted off by the afternoon leaving everything really muddy, so no horse time. Instead, I took my daughter to see the movie Cocoa, and we really liked it and had fun together.
Well, hope your sunday is a nice and relaxing one.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well the snow started about 10 am. I did leave and go to the End of Life Celebration for my long time friend Rita. Only two of her daughters were there, Sandy just recently had a kidney transplant and is under doctors orders of no crowds. It was nice to see people I haven't seen in 40 years! Coming home the roads were really not that great! Got home before 4 pm, so started the tractor to plow the driveway, the 1 to 3 inches is really 4 inches and still coming down. And I need to get out in a little while for a XMAS party at Kate & Eric's farm. Roads were still being plowed and salted and it's supposed to stop about 6 pm. I'll be leaving about 6:30 and hopefully nice steady slow and easy go! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Don't think I've been on to congratulate you on your HOTM win! Congrats Cisco on your big win! Happy to have you as our top horse of the month! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~

WOW...we actually had a SNOW DAY yesterday!!! Can you believe it snowed in Louisiana?? Yes it was quite an experience for us. I think it was 8 years ago since our last snow, but then it was nothing like this one. Normally the snow would melt not long after it hit the ground. We still have snow on the ground today. Everyone was busy building snowmen and playing in the snow. Got some pics of the herd on this snow day, will post on Susie's page. Have a great weekend!

Sounds like it was time to get a new blanket anyway. And yay to the boots! Love lined warm waterproof boots! Mine aren't quite as waterproof as they were, there's a small hole in one if the seams. Seems like there oughta be something you could seal seams with that also stays flexible.
Well, are you sitting down? We got snow yesterday! It snowed hard all afternoon, big fat beautiful flakes. It mostly melted as it came down, but we wound up with about an inch accumulation. Not only is it rare for us to get snow, it's even rarer to get it before Christmas. Fortunately the roads were just wet so I was able to get home from work last night without any trouble.
Hope you have a great weekend and stay warm.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Oh cold and nasty out today! Can tell that snow is on the way! YUK! So my Farrier calls at a little before 8 am to give me a heads up that could we change the time from 10 am to 1 pm, sure it's okay. So that gave me time to fill in the holes around the barn and indoor with the dirt from Kevin's. Then I lunge Paige, free lunged Indy and Bullseye. Sure enough 5 minutes to 1 pm here's JW! He said for the first time going barefoot, Paige's feet were in amazing good shape. Not one chip out of them, she's a lady, dainty mover! Indy's doing great, his side quarter crack is all gone now. And he couldn't believe what a gentleman Bullseye was to work on! That's my little donk! I then dragged the indoor while the tractor was still down there. Realized I was hungry, it was 3:30! So I went and got Honey and just let her run the back yard, she ran like the wind! Besides, it was so nasty and I already spent almost 4 hours out in it, I was a little chilled! Let's see what tomorrow brings! Besides snow! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

WOW that is crazy 81 to 17.Glad you had a blanket for her even if it was to big. did you get snow. I know Susan did. Not much but still it's Texas. We are supposed to have snow this weekend. However, it looks like it is East of me. So maybe only flurries. Have my 3 year old niece's dance recital tomorrow. So no Big Jax time. Sunday I will be all his. :) Vicki & Big Jax

Hi & a vote,
Yes, MUCH colder here today too and only to get worse through next week! Some threats of some snow too in the forecast too maybe. Depends how that darn weather tracks!
Last night was out to see Rocky and he got 2 carrots and I grained and hayed all the horses too. Blue and Hailey the dogs were able to run around and have fun!

Wow, what a temp change! That's a chilly day to never get above 40. They were originally giving us a forecast of cold and possible snow too, but as the day draws nearer, it's changed to warmer and rain. I know the kids want snow, but since I HAVE to be at work regardless of the weather, I'm okay if it doesn't snow. I hate driving in it, and it means choosing between staying at work (which they expect us to do) or taking care of Madison and animals. What kind of choice is that?!
Glad Jazz is getting around despite her knees. It's what we do, isn't it?
Are your alfalfa pellets straight alfalfa? I might have to look into them. I feed cubes but have to soak them thoroughly and then break them apart, which is labor intensive (and freezes your hands in the winter). Do you feed them wet or dry?
Sorry I didn't get on yesterday, I was off but hit the ground running. Not much going on, horse wise. We only got a quarter inch of rain the other night but its been overcast ever since. When I feed hay, I have to go spread it out in piles for them twice a day. I tried just putting a round bale out there for them to have free choice, but they can demolish it in 5 days, and I can't afford that, nor can I find that much hay to buy the last couple of years due to the drought.
Anyway, the horses are fine. I hope you have a great friday.

I bet Cisco is happy the alfalfa treats are here. lol Is snow common for you? We had flurries all day. Nothing stayed. Suppose to be in the high 40's but I don't think it made it. The air was dry and no wind. So not to bad. Tomorrow the same then the cold front moves in. Lesson was cancelled as Lexie one Thoroughbred hurt himself. Told her no problem they come first. She is moving on top of it. Last thing she needs to worry about is a lesson. That is about it for me. Had to stop watching the news. I can't handle seeing any more barns burn. Bad enough to know it happening and can't do anything. You guys stay warm. Speaking of blankets I washed 5 today. Only one was Big Jax. Helped one of the young girls out. She works full time and I was going to the laundromat any way. didn't dry them. Worried about the commercial being to hot. so I have blankets draped all over my home. Good thing I love the smell of horse. Vicki & Big Jax

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well at least the sun was out, but so did the winds come back! And of course, they said 41, well how does 36 sound! I would have loved to have been able to be wrong so much at my job and not get fired! LOL! So took the tractor over to Kevin's and got 1/2 a bucket of dirt. Will fill in tomorrow where needed to keep the snow out of the barn and indoor. Want to let is dry a little first, it was wet from the rain the other day. Got them lunged again. Then hay and fresh water for lunch. Honey and I got in a little over a mile walk, but we both were bundles up, she even had her coat on too! Got JW the Farrier coming in the morning, have to have him do Bullseye for me, can't handle doing the nippers yet with the wrist. So cheaper in the long run to have him do little Bully!

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well woke up to fog, and 37 degrees, it burned off and sunshine, high of 41 but with 9 mph steady winds. I went to the post office and mailed some important papers out. Then hit WalMart and made up my XMAS cards. Got home and went and Lunged Paige and did showmanship, she was so good! Indy got Lunged too. Then Bullseye got to run for a few minutes. Hayed and fresh water for them. Late lunch for me too, ate and the it was 3:45 and the sun going down and the winds picking up more, but Honey wanted her walk. So I bundled up and we did a little over 1/2 mile, maybe 3/4. Came in and made a big mug of hot cocoa! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi & a vote,
I hadn't thought about it, but when I rode Rocky Sunday, he was able to pickup both leads (usually he can't do the right lead anymore), but I think it might be due to the new supplement kicking in. I can hope it makes him feel more comfortable. Usually I don't even try to canter him right lead, but he felt so good I let him try it. Only for a little bit, not to overdo it!

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well it might have been warm, like up to 54 degrees, but it either drizzled or rained all day long. So it was a house work morning with laundry and vacuuming! Crock pot going with the Chicken N' Dumplings, which was delish by the way! Then about 12:30 or so, I ventured out with Honey to run her in the indoor. That was the plan anyhow! Then next was to be attempt to life that saddle and tack up Paige for a ride! Well Honey and I got half way to the barn and the hunters started with shot after shot! It's gun season this week for deer and bear! OMG, poor Honey was besides herself! Got her back to the house. Went to the barn by myself and the horses were even a little rattled! So I scrubbed the idea of attempting to ride and even walk them to the indoor. Hunting didn't stop till darn near 4 pm! Hope tomorrow is quiet! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

I would love to think he is at a point in his life he knows to take care of me. It means we are getting there. One good thing he has always done, jump away from me when he spooks. Even when he was a yearling. However, when on his back, he jumps sideways. Yep sideways. Never knew a horse could do that until I was on his back. Cisco good boy for sharing your pie. Not sure I would lol. Sounds like the weather is cooling all over the US. We have high 40's to low 50's with rain. Tonight it drops to middle 30's. I will be staying home. I'm sure the roads will freeze. Not worth being out and about if I don't have to. Have a good day. Vicki & Big Jax

Nuts, that means you have to go back to the feed store again in a couple of days. Oh yeah, I bet he DID enjoy his fried apple pie. I used to have a horse that liked pb&J sandwichs, and she was known to steal an apple pie once in a while too. Well, being king, Cisco deserves a treat once in a while (he would probably pass a royal edict to get several every day).
Wow, still in the 80s? That's incredible for dec. Did you get much rain? Hope you got some since you need it.
I rode Allie again out in the pasture yesterday after I trimmed her hinds (I did her fronts over a week ago, sigh). We did some lope circles in both directions around her buddies, and she did pretty good, didn't get too fast and let me steer her, more or less. I was very happy with her. I forgot to give her extra treats for being HOTD, but maybe they'll have a pasture party today since Gracie and BJ are HOTD today (thanks so much again. :) !
Well, have a great tuesday.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well at least the weathermen got the sunny and no wind part of it right! But failed on the temps! Said about 48/49, ha ha, got to 41 only! Got them lunged this morning in the indoor before getting ready to go to the chiro for my normal adjustment, Lord knew I needed it! Middle was a mess! Saw that Kevin finally got home from his sisters and the family get together. He stayed overnight at her place. Just really hope he wasn't drinking! They all are a bunch of Beer Alcoholics! He brought the quad over and took the tractor home and did the boat himself. Guess all went well! After Chiro, it was Staples, Lowe's, Home Depot and the Wally World major food shopping. Since it's going to rain all day tomorrow, good day to make Chicken N' Dumplings! That's probably my favorite! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Will it be okay to get rain the next day or two? Seems like you've been a little dry lately too. We have a chance of rain tue-wed, I guess from the same front. Sure hope so.
Glad your back wasn't sore, especially since you had so much to do again yesterday.
After church, I had a hole to patch in the chicken run, so by the time I got around to feeding and riding, it was getting dark. (I sure hate these short days, you just don't have time for anything.) I did do a short ride on Allie in the pasture and it went pretty well. She's gotten this habit of when I ask for a trot, she hops into this tiny little lope that of course builds speed if I let her stay in it, so I have to work on that. But it's kind of a fun little gait (for about 4 strides) so I don't fuss too much.
Well, it's monday again. Hope it's a good one.
PS. Thanks to everyone for Allie's HOTD!

I will tell him. That is understandable if he is new. He will learn fast. Felt so nice to be out and about and not be cold. Jax was frisky but not uncontrollable. We had a good ride in the arena. Then Lexie student and I did a short ride around the farm. Felt so good. Jax was a little spooky, but when he saw that Congo didn't care he calmed right down. Not really sure why we are going through the spookiness. He wasn't like this at 3 and 4. Geez. Vicki & Big Jax

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well today didn't turn out as nice as they said! Plus I waited to hear from Kevin about coming over and getting the big tractor and then helping him with moving his boat and putting it up for the winter. Seems he remembered at the last minute it was family day with his sister and cousins to visit the cemetery and lay down the grave blankets! So that messed things up for my time schedule. But it got nastier as the day went on. So just Honey and I got a walk in. Then the kids got a lunch of hay and fresh water. Been watching Sunday Football all day! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi & a Vote,
My daughter made it to the clinic. I talked to her last night. Haven't got the report from Day 2 yet, but it was going ok and she was feeling a little better. She said she sent me some pictures, but I didn't receive them yet, so she'll probably have to send again.
Saturday, Rocky got his hooves trimmed. This afternoon, I got to ride in the field at least with my friend. It was a mild afternoon, so fun. Blue was happy to be romping around with her dog too!

Come visit me, Rocky (the blue-eyed wonder horse), Comet (has new home) & Cowboy.

Yep, those "discussions" aren't really fun for horse nor human, but they have to happen from time to time. Glad you got to ride her though. Sounds like you had a busy day, so I guess your back is better? I'm so glad.
I finally got to ride Allie yesterday, it's been about 2 or 3 weeks since I've been on her. She did pretty good, just always tries to get fast like she does. But I'd just circle her back down to a walk and she was pretty compliant with that. It was great to be back on her.
I had decided to start feeding hay yesterday and it seemed that somehow the horses knew because they all hung at the gate after their supper. Kind of uncanny how they knew. Or maybe their desire for hay subconsciously influenced my decision. Anyway, hay was on everybody's mind, lol.
Well, hope you have a good restful sunday.

Congrats Cisco for HOTM
70's sounds nice. But, I know it won't last. On the other hand up and down weather is hard on all of human and animal. Sorry about the kitty. I have an old guy who is getting thinner. I watch him closely. That was really rude of the kid at the store. He should know better. Probably just a job to him. So sad so many have that mindset today. Some day he will get it. At least I hope so. I think I feel worse for you then Scott. You worry and he is in denial about it all. I use to go through periods of I don't care to following the rules. I do feel for him. I remember trying and feel like I was losing. But, I promise it will get better for both of you. Got a lot done today. Two loads of laundry, went to barn. Cleaned my dirty boy and changed his blanket. Supposed to be in the 40's tonight. Same tomorrow with cooler weather coming in Sunday night. So I will put the cooler back on before I leave tomorrow afternoon. Crazy. I'am lucky Sarah and Lexie watch the horses and change blankets as needed. Most places won't do it. Now I have my 6 and 8 year old nephews. Mom got called into work. So pizza, movie and sleep over. Damon loves horses. He is going over your pictures. Loves Cisco. He said "look Jax in black and white" I laughed said close. lol Have a nice weekend. Rest your back. I know how heavy feed can be. Vicki & Big Jax

Congrats on HOTM!
Hi Cisco, Congrats on HOTM and here's a vote for ya. Well it wasn't windy, just a light breeze and got up to about 44, but no sunshine at all! Took some hay to the barn. Ran to Tractor Supply for grain for Paige, cat food for Mo and 25 bags of pelleted bedding for the horses. Got home and turned them out! Of course mid weight blankets with sheets on top and Paige got a slinky hood too! Unloaded the truck and yes the wrist is a little ticked off at me for that! But it had to be done! Kids were out over 2 hours, grass is all but gone now however. Baby pasture behind barn is good, so is nice tomorrow, everyone will get a little time in there, but one at a time! Honey and I got in a walk, it was damp and raw by then, but she loves those walks! Tomorrow I'm going over to help Kevin put the boat away for the winter, and hopefully bring the quad home for the indoor arena. Good news too, Kevin is going back to work on the 11th! He's really looking forward to it! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Yep, Cisco is king of December! The mares will help you keep his head from getting too big, lol. Mares are good like that. They keep our heads from getting too big too.
Allie and Dee have been getting into it really bad lately (I told them no more boo-boos, they can rot for all I care, I'm tired of treating their war wounds). BJ doesn't even get involved anymore, he just stands at a distance and watches. I don't blame him.
Gonna have to educate that sloppy teen on how to load feed bags. Hope your back feels better today.
I didn't get to ride yesterday. In fact, I didn't get to do anything because my sister in law's phone broke and we spent almost 6 hrs at the store, first trying to fix the old one, then buying and setting up a new one. Oi! Got home after dark. Thank goodness there was that beautiful full moon, I was able to do the feeding and even brushing by the light it gave off. She has to have her phone though, she's very isolated without it since she can't get out at all (she's the sister in law who's blind).
Well, hope you have a great saturday.

Come visit me, Allie & BJ and his mom Gracie.
