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).

Oh no, new truck tires. Yeah, those will set you back a bit. Just when you finally have some nice weather, the horses disappear, huh? Wouldn't you know. Hope they show up today.
Its turned off chilly this weekend, with lows around freezing. So glad I haven't planted a garden yet. I've always heard to wait until after Easter, no matter when Easter is. Seems like that's usually about right. A friend of mine shows in working cow horse events and is showing at the big local arena today, so I might try to visit her there. She's not sure what time her classes are, so it'll be pure chance if I get to watch her run, but it'll be good to see her.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well, that rain last night, turned to snow! Nothing really to speak of here, but just 20 miles from me it was a few inches deep! Has anyone seen Spring? If so, give it our zip code please! LOL! Got over to see Paige and had a showmanship lesson again. Since I can't ride yet, Marissa is really drilling us, only today might have been to long. I felt it a little after the 40 minute workout! Got home and went for a walk, I know walking is really good for the back. Well the one mile I had planned on, turned into close to 2 miles. I meet a neighbor who's year old beagle ran off, slipped it's harness. Spent over 90 minutes walking the road and then the woods by her house looking for Olivia. Didn't find her. Hope she comes home for super! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Glad you are drying out. Always had my other horses barefoot. I think it is just better, unless you are doing competing. I will look into the Easy Boots. Yeah I got to ride Thursday. Felt so good. Raining on and off, but its WARM! Hoping to ride Sat. Promised the girls those bacon/maple syrup cup cakes. Have a great Friday night. Vicki & Big Jax

The vet came out on Tuesday, had all the coggins done, checked their teeth and cleaned sheaths. Poor Ace the drugs really took effect on him. He was so drowsy, it took him a good while to wake up. Susie looked worried about him. The herd is doing well. Had rain yesterday so its wet once again. Enjoy your weekend. Left a vote.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well it warmed up to about 52 degrees, but with the rain is was so damp. I really would rather have had 35 degrees and sunshine! LOL! Got Indy and Bullseye to the indoor. Indy got lunged, he was shocked that I put the line on him. Usually I free lunge him, but I wanted to work on lots of changes of direction. Then Indy got a shave and trim and spruced up. Bullseye I did the bulbs of his frogs, they really over grow. So I pulled out my mechanics stool and sat on it, he don't care and got my nippers out. He's such a good little donkey. Well chance of a thunder storm tonight, lovely! Still, better than snow! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

the calves are probably loving there new mowing job! At least you won't have to worry about your piggy's getting fatter LOL Deacon got his new shoes yesterday and Rocket and Whiskey had their trims done! I will keep Deacon that way through around July then he will go barefoot the rest of the year. We worked on the stretches again. They seem to respond well and it makes me feel good that I can help them gain muscle and feel better. Whinny’s, hugs and a vote ☆

glad you had a dry day or two. and glad Shy Guy is showing up regularly. did you say he's black?
finally have a day off, but have tons of errands to do, so don't know if i'll have much horse time. one of the things I have to do is to put my old Aussie, Mick, down. he's at least 14 years old, and has had a bad heart and needed meds for the last year, but they aren't really working anymore, and he wheezes and stumbles around and doesn't look like he enjoys life anymore, so rather than wait for an emergency late at night... He's been a really good dog and i'll miss him a lot. I have 4 other dogs, but there's only 1 Mick.
well, I hope you have a good day, even though I think you said it's supposed to rain. stay dry.

Here's a vote from Buddy! It's been a long time since we've been on to blog, I've signed on now and then so my points don't go away, but haven't had time to do much of anything else. So here's a update on us!

Things didn't work out with the move to Grande Cache work/money wise for my fiancé & I, so we moved back to my home town of Grande Prairie, but of course that was after we put ourselves in major debt :( We're living with Robs brother currently, and trying to get back on track. Rob got a job doing the same as he was in Edmonton, and got his class 1 license last week, so now he can drive a big truck of his own and make more $$! I babysit my niece for my sister 5 nights a week, and still sell Scentsy. I'm looking for another job during the day, but haven't had much luck with it yet.

Buddy is still in Grande Cache, hopefully just until the end of this month. I have a place to keep him here just outside of town, I've just got to pay the Grande Cache people up in full before I can move him. I also have to find a trailer to rent and Rob & I both need the day off, as I won't be able to make the trip to GC and then back to GP before I have to babysit. There's lots I need/want to do when I finally have my boy back with me. I of course, want to make sure he settles in to the new place well, and spend some time with him since I haven't seen him this year yet (I feel terrible for this,) plus the owners of the new place want me to get him a vet check when he gets here.

I hope everyone has been well and enjoying horsey time! Hope spring has sprung for you all!

-Buddy & Jasmine

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well day started off on the bad foot! Cat (Mo) got out of the barn this morning, which in it's self is okay, he roams the place in the summer. But the fact that he caught and ate one of my Morning Doves who nest every year on top of my A/C unit to the bedroom, really ticked me off. I don't know if he killed momma or dad! He's lucky he's not dead himself! On a brighter note, went over to do another Showmanship lesson with Paige. She was really, really good for me. But did eat off her bell boots, Marissa left them on this morning after riding her and the let her loose in the stall! Yummy she said! Indy and Bullseye got turnout time in the indoor. Rains started around 3 pm and tomorrow will be heavier with thunder storms, but however going up to about 53 degrees. Lots more snow melted off today! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Another day of 18 degrees, but it did make it to 43 today with strong sunshine. It actually felt nice out there. And tomorrow the high 40's but overcast and possible rain. Got over to see Paige today. I actually did about 15 minutes of showmanship lesson with her. Then Marissa rode her, she was good. Got home and walked 1/2 mile again to help strengthen the back muscles. Still taking my Traumeel and I did rub the ointment on tonight. Kevin came over and took another 6 bales of hay to the barn for me. Bless his sweet soul. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Cisco, My niece is doing better. She does see a chiropractor. I was just lazy and typed doctor. LOL He told her she did a good job on herself and it would take about 6 weeks to be better. Deb works with handicap adults and has to lift. They also have 4 horses. She is not a lazy girl and doesn't know what taking it easy is. Told her if she wanted to ride this summer she best take care of herself. Hit the 20's yesterday but the winds are awful. I did a riding lesson. Told my trainer I was going to ride no matter what. I want Big Jax ready to take to some of the events. I'm not competing, just want to get him used to crowds. It will be fun for me as well. Hope the mud is drying up. How many 100 days do you get? I think that is as bad as the 20 and 30 belows. Vicki & Big Jax

So maybe your swamp will dry up a bit with 70* weather !!
I been putting a sweatshirt on Jack at night , I think he likes it, the vet is out till the April 1 so I am doing my best with Dr. him myself, if it wasn't for his bum leg he'd be doing great, I keep it wrapped and made him a duck tape boot so he does not drag his hoof raw, this AM he appeared to be walking a little better, trimmed all his hooves last night and put a clean wrap on him, I use 2 pair of tube socks, bandage wrap to hold them up then make the duck tape boot, seems to work great,today is mid 50* here, rain storm last night, wind storm now, and a tiny bit of sun when the clouds pass, Lilly will just be getting visits today !! have a wonderful week, love Suz and Lilly

I'll watch for the H-birds. They are cheeky little things. They hover at my mom's window and fuss at her too.
Didn't get time to ride yesterday though it cleared up and was pretty by afternoon. But I did scrub everybody with the curry and shed blade. Too bad you can't sell horse hair. Its just crazy how much they're shedding this time of year.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Lazy Monday today! Are you ready for this, I woke up tired! LOL! Did go down and take Indy out to the indoor, but the temps were cold! It was only 16 when I got up to feed and the high was 30 degrees with windy winds! So not much melted off today! Did go for another walk, just all the way down back of my farm and around and up the side along the indoor. Just picking up some of the neighbors trash that blew into my hay field and along the indoor. Tomorrow I'll be going over to see Paige, hopefully I'll be doing some of the grooming on her. The Traumeel pills are working as good as or better than the Aleve and no heartburn from them. Didn't use the ointment today either, trying to see how it's doing without all the stuff. Seems to be getting there. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Nuts, I missed the breed profile. Yes, sounds like your herd should definitely receive honorary Marsh Tacky status. They might be growing webbing in their feet-they'll need it.
No horse time yesterday except to feed. Didn't even brush them since they were all wet, but I did visit each one.
By the way, when do you put out your hummingbird feeders?

I researched horse stretches on youtube and found a suggestion to use hoof pick brushes to encourage them to lift up their bellies. I tried that today and it worked better. I def could see buttercup flex upward and peach moved ever so slightly! small victories! lol. it made it much easier for me.

Hi Cisco, here's vote # 5200 for ya. Well, it was sunny and only got to about 35 degrees, but the sun was strong, so it melted off more of snow, I can see about 50% of my farm! WHOO HOO! Indy got to the indoor and did some free lungeing with him. He's so good! Then took a ride to fuel up the Beast and over to WalMart for a couple of things. On the way home, cruised over to see Paige and get my dose of kisses and face washing from her. I did brush her mane and spray condition it and then brush again. It's so long! Home and on the couch to rest my back, a little better each day, but not fast enough to suit me! LOL! Oh buy the way, tonights temp is going down to 12 degrees, where the heck is spring???

✞ Enjoyed my feeding time with the herd after work. We have the gates closed to the turnouts so the grass can grow good plus it’s that time of the year to be careful they don’t eat too much of this fresh grass to founder. Each day they were worked up to about an hour until 2 days ago so I think I will put them back to 30 minutes a day for a few before getting them back to an hour. Happy trails and Have a wonderful day ♡

so sorry you had to cancel your spot in the clinic. you're right, it's not fair or safe for you or Cisco to go after so much forced time off. hopefully, you can hit all the rest of the clinics this year. are the horses growing gills yet? that'll be a sign to move to higher ground, lol.
ok, so Allie's breeder has been after me to ride her and send pics. so yesterday, after groundwork, Kathryn got on while I worked the lunge line and my daughter worked the camera. they did walk,trot, and lope in both directions, no more than 1 complete circle before stopping and changing direction. they both did great, no bucking at all. Allie is still too small to ride, so I wont do any more this year, except maybe get on once in a blue moon to flex her. but she's had her introduction to riding and did great. I am very proud of her.
well, hope you have a good sunday. stay dry. take care.

Good Morning my friends, feeling better today, most of the swelling is down, I can see again. For some of our jobs safety glasses are required, however, I wear glasses anyway. This was just a freak accident, believe me this does not happen often, in 14 years it has never happened to me. We had trouble with this flock of birds, they were not taken off feed early enough, it was just a bad day. Yesterday was such a mixed bag, wind, rain, snow, ice pellets then believe it or not, SUN.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well happy to report that we only got 3 inches of snow on the first day of Spring! And today it was overcast, but did hit 46 degrees, so just about all the snow has melted off! I had no intentions of moving it, Nature put it there, Nature was going to take it away. Back is a little better again, I even kinda was able to roll onto my side last night to sleep. Did finally have the strength and Indy did really lower his head for me on command to get his two heavy blankets off, gave him a good currying! He's even got a short fine hair blowout going on! And later on I walked 1/2 mile to build up my back! So it was a good day. Marissa said Paige is well and misses her mommy! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

So sorry the clinic got cancelled. Dang rain. Seems like one of them had to be rescheduled last year too?
We had a good time on the field trip to Charleston. It was wet and chilly, but we got everything done that was planned. I especially enjoyed our trip out to an undeveloped barrier island. I've seen pics of them, but I've never been on one. We walked the downtown area, went to a museum, the aquarium, and a wildlife habitat. We even saw some gators out sunning themselves. My daughter and i had a lot of time together. But its good to be home too. Hang in there, its gotta dry out one day.
