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. This is really getting old hat fast! I hope that they get this resolved on Monday a day of work for them!!! Well, it was only 44 degrees when I got up! BURR!!! Warmed up to about 68 which was nice. Had a really nice ride on Paige, Indy said please mom, day off today for me, two in a row was enough! Okay Indy you win, only cause I have a lot to do outside today. I went over to Kevin's and got the quad and really raked up the indoor. Then turned everyone out. Then it was time to wash the truck and run over the entire body with a furniture cloth wipe, did you know it's a fast polish job on a car or truck and does the job! Then took a bunch of pictures for E Bay and Craig's List. Now hopefully my friend will come over this week and help me set it up FOR SALE! Going Tuesday to order the new one! Yep, gonna do it! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Finally got on, but it's taking several tries each time to vote and blog, keep getting a weird response! Missed Friday night all together, hope they straighten it out!!!! Had a couple of good days of riding both Indy and Paige. Rained today, so beside riding, it was a total spa day complete with trims and hair cuts for them and full head to tail massage! Lucky them, wish they would massage my back! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Awwww, now he'll want you to do it all the time.
A friend from church came over today with their grandkids to ride. The oldest was 3. I led them around on Gracie and they really enjoyed it. They were so cute.
We've been having pretty frequent afternoon thunderstorms, so don't know if I'll be able to ride this evening. They sure cut the afternoon heat though.
Hope you're having a good weekend.

He took to kissing for treats in a heartbeat, huh? That's great you found some trick training tips free on line. I'll have to look some up.
BJ was breathing noticeably better yesterday,but this stuff kind of comes and goes, so will look for sustained improvement. If he truely has allergies and asthma, will have to research ways to treat him. The vet wants to put him on prednisone throughout the summer months, but I don't like what long term steroid use can do, plus, its expensive. Roughly 275$ a month. Will see.
We went on our trail ride yesterday and REALLY enjoyed it, like being reunited with an old friend.
Hope you have a good Friday. Have the rains started yet?

Hi Cheryl & Cisco, aww how sweet you taught him to kiss. I taught Koot to kiss, hug, and shake. I've never really tried the kneeling or laying down with him though, but always wanted to. I think it's a bit tricky, but probably pretty easy once you get the hang of it. It was already about 90 today and felt sooo hot. Not looking forward to Saturday and Sunday when it's supposed to be 98! I'll probably just end up taking Koot some carrots Saturday morning or maybe taking him to the close turn out depending on how hot it is in the am. Voted. XOXO Danya and Koot

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well it started out misty and yucky, then the sun comes out, then some rain and the humid and sunny! Didn't get to ride today. Went with Marissa on a road trip up to the vet clinic to have Wally's stifles injected. She likes to have company when traveling, she hates driving alone. So I get adopted for the job, I don't mind, we talk over game plans for next season and all kinds of neat stuff. It's nice to have a trainer that likes your company more than your money! Last one was like money first, friendship last! We stopped at this really great deli that makes the best subs going! OMG I had the Italian, didn't know that is was a foot long one! Ate half of it and that was 5 hours ago and I'm still full. I was so stuffed when I got home, I couldn't ride! So I just turned the kids out, don't you know, 20 minutes later down comes the rain! But it was a light rain and only lasted about 20 minutes. Made their coats nice and soft. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hope it does cool down for you today. Is it really looking like that much rain? I think today is supposed to be 90 or so, then cool a bit. Haven't heard about rain, but haven't really paid attention.
Kathryn and I might try our first short trail ride in a long time today. Our girls are pretty out of shape. I wish I could pony Allie with us, but the mares are NOT nice when she gets all up in their space. We have to be careful to keep Gracie and Dee apart on the ride because Dee likes to kick the fire out of Gracie whenever she gets a chance on the trails. Mares!
Well, hope you have a good Thur.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. What a beautiful day today. Nice and cool to start and didn't get all that hot out at all, just nice and comfy at about 76 degrees. Had a really nice ride on Paige, working on fine tuning that neck reining going over poles and makes sharp turns without dropping that inside shoulder. Then had them out all afternoon, fly sheets on of course. While they were out, I cleaned out the interior of my truck and detailed the leather seats and all around the inside. Took 5 pictures to put on e-bay when I list it. It looks brand new! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Wow, rain for the next 10 days!? You'll have to teach your kids how to snorkel.
I've never heard that about T. Turvey, I've just seen him do a lot with his horses. There are some fantastic foreign trick horse trainers out and about, but that wouldn't help unless you're fluent in French or German, lol.
How're the fire ant bites doing? I have a couple on my foot- made me think of your poor leg covered in them. They sure are stinkers.

Goodness! Tractor stuck on a fire ant mound could've been really bad. No, don't know of any good trick training books/ DVDs. I've thought about checking out Tommy Turvey (spelling?). Clinton Anderson has a trick training series, but its expensive.
Hope you get to ride soon. Did you ever think you'd miss rides to rain in late summer? Doesn't happen often. Have a good Wed.

Still working on getting the shed cleaned up. We went through it and saved most of the Christmas ornaments. Sadie had to go through them, too. She kept redumping them out. She found a big red bow she liked and dropped it in the mud. What a character. She's ate up with bug bites, Spraying doesn't really help. I feel so bad for her. Leaving a big hug and a vote.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. No riding today, her day off and mine for running errands. Also had the farrier out mid morning to shoe Paige and trim Indy, so that took a couple of hours. Did get them out all afternoon then and while they were out, I dragged the indoor with the big tractor and fluffed it up for tomorrow's ride. Looked like it wanted to rain all day, but never did, and didn't get very warm either, high 60's only, kinda a chilly. LOL was getting used to the high 80 and low 90 days! Wish I could solar heat my indoor and barn off of them for the winter. Oh heck my house too and big time my body! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Cheryl & Cisco, Koot stays in my friend's backyard with her horses about 5 minutes from my house so yes, it's basically like he was at a full service stable but with extra care :) That's a great thing that Nugget is getting better about picking up hooves especially with the farrier coming out.

Hate fire ants. They moved into our area about 10-12 yrs ago, and sure made themselves at home. I have some mounds out in my pasture that look like termite mounds, they're so big. Hope your leg quits itching soon.
The vet says he thinks BJ has developed allergies (aka heaves, asthma). Just great! My young talented horse can't breathe. We're going to try him on a 10 day course of Prednisone and see if it helps him. Gracie turned into a demon over the strangles vacc. He had to sedate her to twitch her to blow it up her nose. Silly mare.
A bed n barn sounds really nice, but not if you have to go twice and take yourself with yourself. Hope they don't reserve another 2 spots for you when you cancel.
Have a good Tues and take care.

We normally don't get much rain. We go for months without any. This summer has been anything but normal. The rain started Monday morning and hit us hard. We're okay, but the flooding in other places, did a lot of damage. Homes were flooded out, cars were buried up to their windows and the Interstate, 1-10, was flooded out and shut down in places. Never seen such a mess. Canals and sewers overflowed, too. A lot of people weren't able to make it to work and schools were closed. People were catching fish in the streets and in their yards. Leaving love and a vote. Thankful for God's hand of protection.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Nice cool sunny day, like only 52 I got up and never went above 74 all day, with a really cool cool breeze. Had another good working lesson on Paige and then broke for lunch. Turned them all out and mowed the lawn. Down to mowing the lawn about every 10 days now instead of 5 days. No rain and cooler days is slowing it down. Only that's also happening with the pastures, they are going to be to the nubs soon! YUK! Going down to 50 or less tonight, barn is hold at a nice warm temp and hopefully I won't have to go back down at 10 pm and sheet them. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Cheryl & Cisco, that's a bummer about the clinic people constantly messing up your reservation. I think it's probably best to just not go there if you're already dealing with so much hassle. OUCH! Fire ants are no joke :( hope that cream keeps the itching down. Not sure if I'll make it out to Koot today, it just depends on how the weather is when I get home.

WOW, thats alot of water, Lilly is on hay all year long because the pastures are not big enough and she and the goats eat them down so fast, there is 3 acrea's right above our house I want to fence but we live in an area called the Gorge commision and you have to get approval from them to build or fence or do anything and the reveiw process is costly and time consumming , so basically you pay them to do what we want to your own property , if they approve it, it is lutacris, Love Suz and Lilly

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Had a great day, the storms last night really cooled it off. We got hit hard about 9 pm with thunder, lightning and heavy rains and blowing. Cooled down to 56 when we woke up. Only was the high 70's and nice breeze. Got a really nice training session of trail course and then horsemanship patterns, to pleasure work. She was really on today. Then while Paige was on the wall, I mowed the small pasture and side and front of the indoor, it's neat again! LOL! Then it was turn out time for them and football time for me! Jets won, Cowboys lost and hopefully my third game will be the Colts winning that one. Oh and the Stealers won they's too. So far 3 out of 4 of my teams won. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

I think you're right about she's been used to stuff flapping around her. Her breeder did a great job imprinting her, so stuff really doesn't bother her. The challenge has always been gaining her respect without making her scared of me.

Leave it to the geldings to stir things up a bit. BJ does the same thing. Glad everyone got over their fear of it.
Ally did great yesterday with the saddle. She never came unglued or really even bucked, just ducked her head a couple of times when she was loping around. The stirrups really hang low on her, lol. She's a short shrimp. Now its gonna be even harder to wait for her to grow up to ride.
