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).

that's too funny. it was his "im okay, mom" buck. if Allie doesnt try me at least once during our groundwork, i worry a little about her too. well, glad he's fine and feeling himself. glad you got a ride in.
i asked about the kitten yesterday. she is sleeping in bed with her new owner, and now has a collar with a flower on it, and has a jiffy new window seat with a pillow that she stays on all day and bird watches. what a princess! my daughter and i both feel better about sending her on now.
im off today, sure hope to ride. im planning on it anyway. hope you get another ride in too.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Okay, woke up to that snow, about 3 inches, but then the winds took over. Of course after I was done snow throwing and plowing the driveway. Now it's all filled in again! Winds are holding steady at about 15 mph with gusts up to 40 mph! It's just now nice out there. I did get hooked up to the trailer, Paige is supposed to leave for school tomorrow. But I don't think that's going to happen, not with this weather, it's not worth it! It'll wait a few days or a week, I don't care, I love her too much. Did get her to the indoor and lunged today. It was so windy, I was waiting for another blow up from her like the other day, nope not today, she was my good girl! Hayed and fresh water at 3 pm for lunch for them. A little late on it today, but they didn't complain! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Awwww, the cat sounds cute. And he came at a good time for you, after losing Loki. The second option person came and got the kitten yesterday. It was really hard to see her go, and my daughter had a cry over her going, but I told her even though it was the hard thing to do, it was the right thing to do. She went to a friend's daughter who has 1 boy and a little girl on the way.
Wow 108. So miserable. Glad those kinds of temps are several months away. I hope the horses hang out closer and you get a ride in today.

Raining. It's suppose to rain through Saturday. Got a lot done on the shed, but the sides haven't been put on it. Still need shingles, too. Had Austin pick up a tarp in town and covered the floor of it, and Rick and I put the sides in his metal container. Should be able to get it finished weekend after this one. Did get the yard light replaced. So nice to have it working, again! Have an amazing weekend. Stay safe and warm. Love and a vote.

Quick hello, VOTE, and update on us-I'm still busy at work and my dad's in the hospital-blood clot in a lung, on rehab floor now, but the blood thinners he's on leaves him unsteady as a fall risk. Went to TN to visit my daughter and son-in-law and to see their brand new house last sunday. Looking forward to have the weekend with my husband since I hardly see him right now and watch the super bowl together! Youngest daughter is performing a trumpet solo Saturday-she's good, and Bub and Bee are looking bored since they have the winter off. I got my cousin to follow the same concept, coz her horse she hasn't had long was growing mean-biting and kicking out! She confined him to a stall, only lunging him once a day or when she could, time wise-weather/school/work. He couldn't even see outside, and no fresh air flow. I told her to let him be a horse for the winter with turnouts, no work, and start back up in the spring when she can be more consistent. She took the advice and told me a few days ago that his attitude is now great, and he's behaving/listening again. I'll have to go into the 2nd part of this when spring arrives and consistent handling and riding begins. I'm her go to person because everything I've ever told/helped her with has been right for them, so I'm glad about that. She's my middle daughter's age, and first-time horse owner. I'm glad he's better!
After 11:00pm here so I need to go. got to get up early, just wanted to tell my HC friends I think of you everyday.....take care ya'all!!! Goodnight

Cisco was probably thinking after all the things you had to get done today if I stand WAY out here she won't want to come get me and I'm not coming in till dinner LOL
Jack went to the vet today Dr. Jeff was tickled how far he has came, now if he would do some serious eating with out me stuffing it down his face I think he would speed up his recovery, I finally had to physically lay him down tonight, he was so tired from not laying down he looked like the leaning tower of Pessa. rode Lilly yesterday and played with her in the arena I am looking forward to taking along ride on her without the goat boys here in the near future.Love Suz and Lilly

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. WOW was it cold this morning -05 at 6:30 am and didn't warm up till much later, but no winds! Did get the snow thrower work done and the complete driveway cleared with the tractor. The snow pile across the street is about 6 foot high for the most part, probably 6 to 8 feet deep(front to back) and about 50 feet long. Picture going on FB acct. Did get to Lunge Paige and circle drive her, Lunged Indy and then let Bullseye just play on his own in the indoor. After all that, I was beet! Went over and hung out at Kevin's for a while, came home and napped! More snow moving in for tonight, could be up to 3 inches again! OHY! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hey Cheryl & Cisco, hope you're having a great week! I did get to see Koot last night. I actually spent about two hours with him :) I first took him out to the turn out to roll and then my friend texted me that she was going to ride so I took Koot back to my friends and saddled him out and then went on a short ride with my friend. Once we got back, I cleaned Koot's stall and gave him yummy carrots and his dinner. He seemed pretty happy to get lots of time with his mommy. I have to admit I was really happy too :) Voted.

Wow, maybe the unseasonably warm weather mellowed him out. So that's all you have to do: order up an extra hot day on the days you're going to ride, lol. I'm glad you had a great ride on him. Good boy.
Sounds like an influx of stray cats going around. I hope he comes back and settles in. Life on the road isn't all its cracked up to be. What's he look like?
Scrapped the fence work yesterday and rode Gracie and then trimmed her feet instead. She was very good and settled in to a little rocking horse lope that was so comfortable. We loped some cloverleaf patterns and then practiced vertical flexion at the walk to cool off.
Well, are you supposed to have another hot day today? Such weird weather. Hope its a good Thur, whatever the temp.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well it was a busy day, cold one at that too! Only 9 degrees with high winds, so the feel like was at -04 when I feed the horses this morning. Kevin and I went to his sisters place of work for my new glasses. Only we took his Audi, glad we did, as he said, neither of my trucks would have fit in the parking spaces. It's road parking complete with meters! Not used to that! And the spaces were so small, for all those little cars, even his Audi didn't have much space before and after. My trucks would have had to use a double space and hopefully not get a ticket! Good call Kevin. Got home and managed to just have time to lunge Paige, who was a devil woman after being in all day yesterday! With the cold temps and wind blowing, she was fun to walk to the indoor! LOL! Then gave them a late lunch of hay and fresh water, then made myself lunch/dinner at 4 pm. I was hungry! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

The winds died down and I was going to see Koot on Monday, but then about 4pm through the night it was downpouring rain!

Wow, so glad you like your new farrier and she's good with Nugget. That's a relief-hate looking for a good farrier and suffering through bad attitudes and bad jobs while looking.
I'm off today. Got grocery shopping (" we don't have ANY food in the house, Mom!") and fence mending to do today. There isn't hardly any room in the pantry, yet I hear we have no food. Hmmmm. And the pasture pets have pushed the paddock fence down butt-scratching on it. What fence is going to hold an 1100 lb animal sitting on it? There are perfectly good trees to scratch on, lol.
Well, its supposed to be sunny but cold today. Hope you have a good Wed.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well did we luck out! Nothing really to speak of over night, but it did snow heavy for a while this morning. Probably total of only about 6 inches, but drifts up to 2 foot deep and long and wide! Storm went well northeast of us. They got hammered up in Conn, and the New England states! Up to 3 feet of snow up there, it's still snowing up there now! Poor people! Well needles to say, spent a couple of hours snow blowing and plowing, most of which going to the barn has filled in with the wind blown snow! Winds have been steady at about 15 MPH and gusts to 20, so it was a challenge using the snow blower, I looked like frosty the snow woman! LOL! Got done and come in and hit a nice hot shower! Tomorrow I'll finish re-doing the place and get both trucks ready to roll. Right now just Beast is ready to hit the road. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

You haven't increased your life insurance lately have you, lol? Glad you weren't run over. Hope all your hard work isn't undone by today when the farrier comes. Yeah, I'm sure long trips are common for farriers and vets alike, but its a shame he doesn't have more clients in your area to make the trip more financially worth his while. Good luck with the new farrier today.

Your ponies sound a lot like Lilly, I just get her clean and the next dau or sometime in the night I swear she rolls in the mud again !Jack is making progress, he is walking but not eating very well, I am trying to get him to take in solid foods verses the baby food, he is taking on water which is good, he has a facination with it , if I don't watch him he would drown in it, I just keep a inch or so in the bucket I water him from but he goes all in and gets some up his nose if I am not watching him gonna even lower how much I put in the bucket, I stood him up this morning after I did all my prep work on him and he has not laid down yet, hope he does not fall over during the night and hurt himself, took Lilly for a short walk and he followed us, man this has been a challenge, love Suz and Lilly

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well the snow started at 9 am and it's been a light fluffy type all day long, tonight however it's supposed to get heavy and fast a furious! Could be as much as 2 inches per hour with winds gusting around 25 MPH! They did down grade us to 10 to 18 inches, I'll take the 10 side of it! LOL! It's gonna be fun, I have some drifts all ready close to a foot deep. Did get Paige to the indoor, we did circle driving and the hand walked and showmanship. Indy got in there too, free lunged him. It was only 15 outside, 27 in the indoor and 44 in my barn. Just can't wait to see what I wake up too! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

I saw you were speaking of round bales under Indy's profile~we store our round bales on pallets on a cement slab that is surrounded by corral panels. It helps keep ours clean at the bottom, except when we place them in the holder for them to eat and we really don't end up with any waste at all thank goodness :) Busy day today! I will be off work tomorrow and will haul out to the lake to ride. I will be riding by myself which I don’t mind sometimes. We don’t have a HOTM runner for March so it’s up for grabs-let me know if you are interested otherwise we will see what happens without one. Hard to believe January is nearly gone.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well it was very sunny and got to about 36 again today. Compressed and melted more of Friday nights snow storm. But heck, that just to make room for the major one starting before dawn on Monday and going to late Tuesday afternoon. Our latest prediction is for 14 to 18 inches with winds of 15 to 25 and gusts of 40 MPH> The winds will make for drifts by me of 5 and 6 foot high! Been there, I know what I'm in for, and I'm not happy at all about it! Well got to do a lot of ground work with Paige and poor Indy asked what was up, he actually was on the lunge line today and then he too did the circle driving. Bullseye got a trim by his farrier today. So that's all done. Hopefully I'll still be able to hit the indoor tomorrow and get them out in there, but Tuesday when it's all over, the major clean up will start! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

I don't like change either but it happens anyway so I try to make the best of it. It's hard to come to terms with somethings though. Can you use this farrier this time and be back on track with your regular one? It sounds like I'm repeating myself but after work it was so pretty and sunny. I let the boys out to graze and I curry combed them while grazing. Just to wet to ride around our protery right now. Have a wonderful Sunday ♡

no, im not strong at all, it's taken me years of having too many animals to realize that i cant take on any more and still take decent care of them. flea control about breaks the bank in the summer, that stuff is so expensive. and my male cat needs a trip to the vet, and BJ is going to need to see the vet about his heaves and get started on expensive meds most of the year. if i can find a home with no or only one other animal, then im sure it will be better for kitten. we will miss her greatly though. she's a mess and so adorable, we've all fallen in love with her.
nice day yesterday, but like you, very muddy. i rode gracie for just a few mins yesterday. BJ has hurt his heel or pastern on a back leg, so he's off the riding list for now. gracie needs a tune-up anyway.
my son moved out this past monday. only about 5 mins away, but i still miss him. when he gets in a talkative mood, he's so incredibly funny and intelligent. ive seen him a few times since when he's come by for something to eat, and his laundry will have to be done here because the rental doesnt have a washer.
well, hope you have a good sunday and get some horse time.
PS why are you changing farriers? and do you like the new one? im with you on not liking change either. good luck with the new farrier.

A BEAUTIFUL SERVICE...
It was an absolutely fabulous service. We were late starting because they had trouble getting everyone into the funeral home. Jackie's bell ringers, rang us(the family) to our seats, it was beautiful. some of Jackie's favorite music was played while they tried to get everyone seated. 3 different ministers briefly spoke and we prayed.. Jackie's son in law gave a wonderful speech, we all laughed right out loud, we all cried a bit and then 2 of her grandchildren spoke, they were just amazing, what nice kids. Adam played Amazing Grace on his bagpipes, so lovely. The bell ringers rang us all out and we went for lunch at a hall, it was a huge group of people all for Jackie, it was wonderful to see all her nieces and nephews there, Trevor came with some of the boys from London, one of the nieces came from BC and some cousins came from Scotland and North Carolina and California. There is a huge hole in that community and in the hearts of us who loved her, she is safe now, we left a vote, Love Donna Lee
