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).

Always hungry, aren't they? I'm sure he was happy about an extra meal.
Hope you get to go up and see Sunset this saturday. Has your weather dried up a little?
It was another beautiful day here yesterday. I grocery shopped in the am and worked all afternoon on the deck. Got all the floor joists in except 1 (I ran out of hangers). That doesn't sound like much, but the hangers were the kind that you had to measure every one carefully and that took a while. No horse time, except to feed, but I watched them randomly run here and there periodically, don't know what that was about, lol. I figure Allie had something to do with it.
Gotta work today, but hope you have a great thursday.

Come visit me, Allie, thanks everyone for June HOTM! & BJ "Ima Git Yer Hat", and his mom Gracie.

HI Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well another productive day weed whacking and mowing! This time without the interruptions of T-storms! Was nice out, breeze for a while and a high of 76F. But heat and humidity returning tomorrow and right thru the weekend! YUK! Boys were out for like almost 3 hours today. Figured better cause with the heat and humidity comes flies! Honey and I did a 1.5 mile walk too today. That too could end with the hot roads! Thursday is Paige day, hopefully I'll get a ride in! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi & a vote,
Was out to the barn last night and this morning to feed and put the horses in/out. Hailey and Blue are enjoying each other's company at my place, but will go home tomorrow. Blue went to his agility class last night, which only takes 1 hour, before heading out to the barn. The new cat is settling in really nicely and is ok with the dogs, which is a relief.

How is your knee doing? Did you ever get an appointment for it?
So glad Cliff and his son are doing well and the kidney is kicking in. Sure hope it's smooth sailing from here.
Well, my friend didn't get out till afternoon to help with the deck. I still have a lot to do on it, almost all the floor joists, then the decking, stairs, and railing. But we got the heavy stuff done and the all-important leveling, so I should be able to do the rest myself, except maybe the stairs.
While I was waiting on him to get here, I worked Allie. Was gonna ride, but when I got on, she was tight as a bowstring, flinching and jumping at every little thing, so I got back off and lunged the silliness out of her, which took a long while. After I was done and had hosed her off, I left her tied in the shade for about 2 hrs, and she spent almost the whole time fidgeting and circling. Oy, to have her energy.
Well, hope you have a great wednesday and get to be outside some.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well felt a lot more lively today! LOL! Got 2 loads of my laundry done. And on our local radio station every morning they have a question about whatever, it's always a tough one and it's for good prizes. Today I won and got $10 in scratch off lottery tickets, won $22 on them! YAY! Took the good show shirts and pants to cleaners for starch and pressing! Fueled up the diesel and got gas for the lawn tractor! Let the mowing begin! Got all around the house weed whacked and mowed, but the mowing was in two parts! Thunder storm and rain put a halt to it for a while. Then the sun came back out and with the nice strong wind, it dried enough to finish just as another round of storms moved in! Boys got out for about 90 minutes till the first storm hit! Tomorrow's another day of mowing for sure! And horsey laundry this time! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

It is amazing what horses can be taught. I think alot more goes on inside their equine brains than we realize, it's just that we don't understand, and as a prey animal with no speech, they probably think so differently than we do. Wish we could understand them better. I do suspect that they don't worry at all about time, wasting it or other wise, like we humans do, unless it involves time to be fed.
That's cool that he still has those horses, but a shame that he doesn't have enough time to really work with them. The story of our lives.
Yeah, that arthritis makes the decision line hazy. I had Dixie on daily Bute (figured at her age, what's worse, suffering from arthritis pain or bleeding to death from a stomach ulcer?). She did well on it for 2 or 3 years, but got to where when it wore off, she had to stop wherever she was and couldn't make it to shade or water or up for supper. But I know every case is different. I'm sure you'll realize when her suffering is too much.
Well, I have a friend coming over today to help with the deck. Or that's the plan. At least he knows what he's doing. Also gotta find a pill organizer that will work for Lisa, now that she has a million pills to take at all times of the day. The standard pill box, she gets confused about rows and columns since she can't see, and she isn't on enough of a schedule to make those automatic dispensers with a timer work either. Hope you have a great tuesday.

Hi & a Vote,
Today, barn duty started through Thursday, so I'm taking full care of all the horses and the barn cat, but it's fun to me. Hailey the dog staying over our house with Blue, so he's loving having a pal here. And to top it all off, we got a new cat, Cali, 5-year old tortiseshell, that had been at the shelter for too long and badly needed a home.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. We're Home Sweet Home! Does it feel good! Great show, busy show, huge show and big classes. So, so much for getting home earlier than I thought. But at least it was only 1 am this time I got in the house and ready for bed, not 2 am like a couple of weeks ago! Sunday I did well in my Horsemanship class, 2 6th place ribbons. Then Laura kicked butt in Novice Ranch Riding with 2 3rds out of 9 really good other horses! All in all a great time. Except for Friday morn when at just before 6 am, Honey jumps up into bed with me shriving! And then it hit, thunder, heavy rains and high winds. Turns out that just to the south east of us and the north east of us, two towns got hit with two different F1 tornadoes! One is even on FB at the Home Depot in Howell with the touch down on film! OMG! It was 3 years ago that we got hit at the show grounds at this same time with that one! Well since today was on and off in bed sleeping and trying to rest, I didn't get much done other than clean out the trailer, park it where it officially goes and then a 2 hour nap. Shower and off to the chiropractor, then Wally World for food shopping. Home, turn the boys out, put the groceries away and another 2 hour nap. And I'm still beat! Hopefully okay tomorrow, cause the lawn looks like a hay field! Love ya, Marion and the blondes!

Wow, the rains have been something else for you. Thank goodness you haven't had the flooding you had last year.
Aw, poor Bo. I hate to hear that she's fading. And I'm sure you're worried about Jazz. Hopefully, she'll bond with someone else when the time comes.
Picked my s.i.l. up from the hospital yesterday. She says she's feeling about back to normal, though her voice still sounds weak. She's now officially diabetic too, ugh.
No horse time, just too much to do. Dee wears a fly mask 24/7 because the bugs get her ears bleeding. Well, in the rain saturday night, I took it off to give her face a break. I was out cutting grass yesterday afternoon when the sun came out and I noticed her hanging at the gate with her bottom lip stuck out and squinting, like someone who needed their sunglasses back on. I've never seen a horse squint like that, lol. So I stopped, put Swat in her ears, and her fly mask back on. She happily went back out to graze after that.
Well, gotta head to work. (Ugh, just not up for it today.) But hope you have a great monday

Hi & a Vote,
Rode Rocky last evening with my friend and her horse for a trail ride. We saw a double-rainbow! Blue and her dog, Hailey, were along for the ride too. Yesterday was a.m. dog adoption clinic and then Blue to the nursing home for a therapy dog visit.

Wow, that would be incredibly dishonest to drug a horse, but I know it happens all the time. It would certainly explain the polar opposite behavior. Is she still scared to death of a brush?
Thats a relief that you can still get your feed without traveling farther. There's an eminent domain case going on in my town as well. That would just suck.
Got a depressingly small amount of my to-do list done yesterday, even though I worked hard at it. Sigh. Seems like most of my days are like that. We too had rain a good bit of the afternoon.
Well, hope you have a great sunday.

Oh, good news about Cliff and his son. Sure will keep them in my prayers for their recovery and hope the kidney takes over and does well. Thanks for sharing.
So Steve hasn't made much progress with Sunset? Thats discouraging. It's so weird that she's so spooky and yet you could ride her in a halter back when you first got her.
Talked to my sister in law on the way home from work and she said they diagnosed E Coli as the causitive bacteria. Not surprising, it's just odd that all her rounds of oral antibiotics didn't knock it out. She says she's feeling better.
I've been so overwhelmed and behind lately. Came home and a friend had dropped his mower off to let me borrow and my son had cut nearly all the grass for me. That's about a 3-4 hour job to cut it all at one time. I have a little clean-up cutting to do (he said there were some spots that were too thick to cut well on the first go), but not much. Clay said he jumped in the pool afterward and it felt SO good. I bet, lol.
Hoping to get more done on the deck today, and don't know if I'll be picking Lisa up from the hospital of just visiting for a bit. I'm thinking they'll let her come home tomorrow.
Hope you have a good saturday.

I hate that your knee is bothering you so much. Sounds like it's time to have it looked at, for sure.
Glad Bo seems to be feeling a little better.
We got rain off and on yesterday, and I didn't have time to ride or work on the deck anyway. Turns out my sister in law was very sick and headed towards kidney failure, infection had gotten into her bloodstream. They're flushing her with a lot of iv fluids and still the iv antibiotics, and her kidney function is getting better. So she got to the hospital just in time.
Well, headed off to work. Hope you have a great friday.

Aw, poor Bo. I remember when old Dixie got that way, except she would go out and couldn't get back in. Stupid arthritis. Maybe it's just a flair up and will get better after a few days. Your knee too. My own arthritis seems to cycle every few months, and when it's bad, I get down, thinking I won't be able to keep horses and look after the place much longer, which, in the long run, may be true. But I don't think about it when I'm feeling better.
Cats are rough on the bird population sometimes.
I rode Allie yesterday morning. It was damp and slippery, so I was mostly just gonna walk, but we weren't getting anywhere; she kept zig zagging and looking for stuff to spook at, so I wound up doing a lot of trotting and working on softening that face. Maybe made some progress. Then spent the rest of the day in the ER with my sister in law. Turns out she's been battling a raging bladder infection that's migrated into her kidneys and possibly into her bloodstream as well. They admitted her and plan to give her iv antibiotics for a few days. So I've gotta go do laundry at her house, clean up a bit, go take her some stuff at the hospital, etc. I'll be busy again today.
Well, hope you have a great thur and your knee feels better.

Hi & a vote,
I am just back from vacation yesterday. Picked up Blue dog from my friend's house in the evening just in time for Rocky to go out for the night. Blue's tail was going to wag off, but today I think he's missing his "vacation" days at the barn with his BFF dog Hailey. But, Hailey will be staying with us 3 days next week and I will be on full-time barn duty for horses & cats too. FUN!

You're right, it's better to listen to Steve now than be lying on the wrong side of the side rails wishing you had. It's just hard when it's a horse and your heart is involved. Hope he can find her a good home. Otherwise..."'splainin". Do you think you could talk your way to another horse? You'd have some serious debate skills if you could, lol.
I got to observe an interesting bit of equine behavior tonight. For a while now, Dee and Allie have been at each other before feeding time, before I can get everybody caught and tied up. The intensity has recently been upped to pretty serious kicking matches, so tonight, BJ took it upon himself to run over and break them up. He had to do it several times before I could get them caught. I was so proud of him. Someone has to keep those mares in line, and it ain't easy.
Hope your week is going well.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well we didn't leave today due to the pending storm. Personally I think if we left on time at 10 am, we would have stayed out of it's path on the way down there. We would have been there about 1 pm and the storm didn't hit them till 4 pm! So we would have been okay! It did start about 11 am up here and never stopped thundering till about 5 pm! Never have I been in a storm where the thunder is so long and relentless! Heavy rains at times! Have to check the indoor for any water, but it's still raining out there! I'll check it when I got to feed at 7 pm, close to that now! Poor Honey was besides herself. I had to dose her with the prescription stuff, twice, three hours apart! Poor baby girl! So we'll be heading out very early tomorrow morning. Probably have to leave here by 8 am maybe. Haven't heard from Marissa with the time yet. Hopefully she'll know tonight so I can set the alarm earlier than my usual 6:15 am if needed! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Did get the boys out for like 2 hours or more and it wasn't that bad for them! Hot yes, about 84 degrees, but a cool breeze blowing through the pastures.

I rode Allie for about an hour yesterday, so she was good and sweaty by the time we finished and got a thorough hosing off afterward. We did a lot of lope to trot transitions and circles. So-so, she just really resists giving her nose, even after all the work over the last year. Trimmed her feet after the ride, and then got all the posts set in cement. Enjoyed being outside most of the day.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well the rains held off up here at my farm. But over by Marissa it was some good steady rain for a couple of hours! Indy got lunged this morning, as I knew they wouldn't get turnout time today due to the show prep mock trial runs. I got there and tacked up and lunged Paige for 20 minutes. Then put her on the wall and had lunch with everyone. We did showmanship first this time, so I did it saddled! LOL! Mare don't care! Then we had our horsemanship patterns to do. I think I was in the saddle like 2 hours and didn't feel too bad. Just a little pain later on in the Medial Manusis of the right leg and nothing in the left at all. I bet I sleep good tonight! LOL! Hopefully we're leaving Monday morning, but now the weather is really taking a turn for the worst! Heavy rains, possible hail with tornado warnings coming out of PA towards us. Severe thunder and lightning too! So we might wait it all out and leave that night or Tuesday morning. We'll see! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Yeah, I hated to ask him to put all that in a car. I was downtown taking Mattie to an appointment and we stopped at Lowes on the spur of the moment. I'm planning on setting the posts in cement today, and I guess they'll have to cure a couple of days before I can continue building. I'm also hoping to ride this am before it gets too hot.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well in between the rain drops I did finish everything on my to-do list! Yep even the weed whacking behind the indoor and a few spots that grew like wildfire around the house. Loaded the hay bags in the trailer and took another load to the horse barn so that's full and more room if William brings me a new load next week. Then Honey and I made a road trip up to the my eye doctor's for my contacts. Got home and was just ready to turn the boys out, and the heavens opened up for the fourth time. So it was a spa day and lunch of hay and fresh water for them. Then Honey and I just hung out in the house relaxing! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

I bet Bo did look good after all that scrubbing. Probably felt good too. Sorry Jazz is feeling a little stiff. Stupid arthritis.
Will you be able to go see Sunset tomorrow? Hope so, can't wait to hear how she's doing.
I did get to ride Allie yesterday am. She did okay, considering she hasn't been ridden in a week. She spent the whole time looking for something to spook at without quite actually spooking, just on high alert. I told her Tackies aren't supposed to spook, but she's lived with quarter horses too long, I guess. Also got the last 2 holes dug, picked up 3 more 8 ft long posts and a couple bags of cement...in my Camry. Talk about redneck, that was a sight! And got the mower up to the repair shop (used the truck for that, lol).
Gotta work today, but hope you have a great friday.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Another productive day! Got more of the fridge packed and the trailer! Mowed the lawn all around the house, so everything's mowed now. But didn't get to finish up the last of the weed whacking! Hopefully tomorrow before the rains hit! Had a great lesson on Paige, she's so light and responsive now! And not a spur mark on her! Not like when I was with Karen who had blood on them all the time! So happy with Marissa! Got home and got the boys out for over 2 hours!

Nuts, sorry your computer is being a pain, but I'm glad you did see that Cisco was HOTD and get to celebrate with him.
I went up to the feed and seed for new post hole diggers yesterday and they had a bunch of new fly stuff, including Freedom 45 and snap on straps for legs and necks. I'm trying the straps on BJ and Gracie (the flies really attack their front cannon bone area), and I'll put the Freedom 45 on all of my horses, see if it works on SC flies. It's funny, everybody has the same reaction when they see post hole diggers..."That's a lot of work," in a commiserating tone of voice. I got 4 of 6 holes dug for the mini deck. And don't you know, sweating like crazy out in the sun right next to the pool, I finally jumped in and it felt so good.
Hoping to haul the lawn mower to a repair shop today, Mattie has an appointment too. Fingers crossed the old truck works okay. I'll need it to get supplies for the deck too.
Well, hope you have a great thursday.

Come visit me, Allie, thanks everyone for June HOTM! & BJ "Ima Git Yer Hat", and his mom Gracie.

A Vote for You!!
Congratulations on being our HOTD!!! I bet there is a "hot time" at your barn/pasture, and its not from the weather. Did you eat all the treats yourself....and got a belly ache.

Come visit me, Mistic, Willow & Whisper.

Congrats on HOTD!
Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. CONGRATS on HOTD! Well a very productive day! Honey and I took the truck down to Ziebart and it got inspected and they sprayed a few bare and worn spots on the undercarriage. She gots lot's of lovin' from Brian the shop manager! Then we stopped at Fords to ask about the windshield, she got more compliments and lovin' there from one of the salesmen who just couldn't stop petting her! Then home and let the work begin! All weed whacking is done! Mowed 2.5 pastures and out back by the manure area. Boys were out today for 2 hours of pasture time. Humidity down a little and it was only 80 degrees, so with his fly sheet and lots of fly spray, Indy was fine. Fridge is done and back in the trailer and cold and I started filling it with drinks. And saved 250 on the bill! YAY! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Yay Cisco! Congrats on being our HOTD today! Good to see him in the spotlight.
I didn't know that Jazz was a therapy horse for a while. That's cool. Glad she's a nice quiet ride, sometimes you just need that.
I did grocery shopping yesterday, marked out the deck and started digging post holes, but the post hole diggers broke. Cut some grass but the lawn mower broke. Which was great because I REALLY needed something else to do (not!). Sigh. No horse time, looks like none at all again this week either.
Well, sorry to complain. We did get a nice little rain in the afternoon, and a pretty sunset.
Hope you have a great hump-day and get to see your Sunset soon.
PS. Hope your hand heals up quickly. I hate fire ants too (who doesnt?). Nasty things. One bite itches like crazy, can't imagine 30!

Come visit me, Allie, thanks everyone for June HOTM! & BJ "Ima Git Yer Hat", and his mom Gracie.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well the fridge is out of the trailer and in my garage! They came and took it out about 9:40 pm last night! Steve's going to be here tomorrow morning probably around 8 am or so to start on it. Got some weed whacking done today and that was it for outside work! So humid you could cut it with a knife! Put Indy out behind the barn in the shade of the barn, but he only lasted about 45 minutes if that! Flies are so bad, and I sprayed the heck out of him. Bullseye started to get his summer buzz cut, body clipping time for him! Hopefully I'll have him done by Sunday before I leave next week! Hit 91F today, that's four days in a row of over 90 for us, very unusual! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Yay, glad you finally got to ride her! Sounds like she did pretty good, and i bet it felt great to get on. Any plans to ride her again soon?
I'm off till friday and while I have a lot to do, I hope it's not as harried as its been lately. One of those bad days at work yesterday like only a nurse can have, pretty much finished me off, I couldn't have gone one more step.
Well, hope you have a great tuesday.

Come visit me, Allie, thanks everyone for June HOTM! & BJ "Ima Git Yer Hat", and his mom Gracie.
