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).

SO happy for you that you had a break in the rain and your extended forecast is looking better. Whew, big sigh of relief! You know, your hubby will put the gutters up and it'll stop raining, lol.
Yes, we got the rain you sent, a late afternoon thunderstorm. Got about 1/4 inch. Thanks so much, we really needed it.
Have just one more day of abuse (did I say that?) and then I'm off the rest of the week, yay. Hope you have a good wednesday.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well today is Indy's 11th Birthday. He got the day off of work, a spa day with complete bath and all! Of course Paige wasn't as lucky, she got worked, and since it was really hot, and even with the ceiling fans on in the indoor, it still was warm. So then she got a bath too! Never did get to start body clipping my donkey, it was so hot in the barn and I was sweating so bad, I would have had all his hair glued to me! So I'll wait for a cool day, this way all the fans in there don't blow his hair around and on me. Don't need a major asthma attack over it. Hit 88 today! I think we might just be coming into summer after all! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hope your starting to dry up a bit, been seeing it on the new, WOW, so sad for people and their critters. Shawn my horse shoer comes tomorrow to trim Lilly's feet, so glad because she really needs it, won't be spending much time in the house this week, a skunk went under the house last night and must have gotten scared about something and let the good times fly, I have all the door and windows open, it is suppose to get to the mid 80* this week and cloud up on Sunday, I hope so that might give it enough time for the smell to disapate I hope, Jack was felling good this morning ar breakfast a chicken waled through and he got some air under those front feet and tried to head butt it, it was pretty funny, had a wonderful Memorial Day, went to the Mosier Memorial service at the cemetary then came home for and took a really long ride, the whole barnyard went everyone was tired when we got home. went to a really fun BBQ on Saturday at a house of one of my old Stable friends alot of the stable friends were there it was fun, have a wonderful week, love Suz and Lilly

Hi Cisco, here's a Memorial Day vote for ya. Hope that you took time to bow your head and pray for those that gave their lives for us, and those that are still fighting for us! Great day today, temps were really hot, made it to 86 degrees, but we had our nice breeze. Good news, no great news, Ole'Blue was sold this morning! They loved it, her son and grandson were in awe of how good it drove and the power to the engine! Clutch passed all the tests he put it through! So it was a cash deal! Love cash, was a little scared driving home with that much on me, but only had to go less than 6 miles. To the bank in the am! Went to a BBQ for a while today. Made it a day of rest! Kids were out later this afternoon and yes, Bullseye got his bath! Let the body clipping begin! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Miracle's update:
Healing Hearts Animal Rescue and Refuge.
"Friends, it is with heavy heart that we bring you the news of Love's passing. Once we got her safe to our refuge, she started to seize. She had been carefully and thoughtfully examined by 2 vets, as well as monitored 24 hours a day by our staff. We agreed that she needed to be set free, as not to harm herself and to be allowed to pass with dignity. She was surrounded by people who cared, loved and honored her life. She went over the bridge under the warm sun, in the arms of those who saved her from abuse. She was not alone." Love and a vote.

Greetings to the swamp. How are things going? Are the horses still buff from swimming through the mud? Glad they are still coming up for feeding, but it sounds like they're getting tired of navigating through it too.
Did get all 3 horses worked yesterday. Rode BJ and ponied Gracie off him in the riding ring. It was fun to work them both that way and other than a little fussing, they did pretty good. Got to practice a lot of neck reining with BJ. Allie was at the fence, looking left out and forlorn, so I did some groundwork with her and then hopped on her bareback just to flex her. Everybody was calm and mellow, so I wound up following Kathryn around on her mare. It was a short ride and just at a walk, but she did great and stayed very relaxed. So much fun and I had a big stupid grin on my face until bedtime, lol. Feels like sitting on a little tricycle to ride her, but it was fun.
well, hope you have a good Memorial Day.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Good day today, cool start, 40 degrees but did go to 78 degrees with sunshine. Woman came up and picked up and paid for my English saddle, SOLD! And I just confirmed with an old friend, who found out at midnight last night, my blue truck was for sale. I priced it down and she's coming up tomorrow with her son-in-law and grandson who's she's buying it for to get it. Sight unseen! Just hope the deal goes through! And she's got cash for me, better yet! Got the lawn finished, dragged the indoor and rode both horses. Yes Indy was violated as he would say, saddle duty time for him. He was good. Paige was on the money. Now I hope I can sleep tonight!! Have to meet them about 9 am downtown and turn over the paper work. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

That's awful for those folks getting flooded out to the North and South of you. I know what you mean about the storms splitting and going around you. They do that to us too. Works out to your favor this season. Glad it doesn't take the creek long to go down.
Finally got the chicken run sprayed yesterday and let the chickens out in it today. It's the chicks' first time out, and they're staying clumped together, going out a little, then running back in, then easing back out again. A lot of clucking amongst themselves. Funny chickens. Rode BJ just a little in the evening. Didn't have time to try ponying Gracie off BJ. They're the only 2 I can pony well due to who's boss and who's trying to prove what to whom. Might be able to pony Allie off BJ too one day.
Well, hope you have a good sunday.

Wow, I hope you don't have any floods! Hope it dries up soon for you.

The Big C has been more or less his usual self today. He scared me, as he was acting a bit colicky earlier (he was kind of kicking at his tummy and he kept laying down, standing up, laying down, etc.) but he seems alright now. Of course, as he was laying down, one of his herdmates decided to start pawing at poor Cimarron's back. I just about wanted to kill the horse for doing that; no one hurts my boy. Anyways, Cimarron's been making weird faces and begging for food for the last few hours, as usual. But he always finds a way to make me worry about him.

Best wishes!

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well another 42 degree morning and a high of about 68 with sunshine, so it felt really good in the afternoon. Woman I'm selling my English saddle too texted me this morning and now she'll be here Sunday morning instead. Just please show up and buy it! Got Indy lunged and lunged Paige and did a showmanship lesson with her. She was really on today! Then went to a friends for about an hour for a BBQ. Had to get home and let the horses out on this beautiful day, they are really loving their pasture time. Then weed whacked around the interior of the outdoor arena and mowed the perimeter and got the front lawn mowed. Will do the back yard tomorrow. Needed to come in and rest a little. Going down to low 40's again tonight, but they say tomorrow will be near 80 degrees, go figure! Bath time for Bullseye, dirty donkey! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

my daughter's friend who has several learning disabilities told me about a math online program her parents got for her this summer. I looked into it this morning and went on and bought a subscription to it. it's supposed to find your child's holes and work on them as well as get them solid on the skills they already have. she's supposed to do it 4 days a week for 30 mins a day. I told her it's that or doing problems out of a book over the summer, so hopefully, she'll like this ok and it will help. schools also use this program and it's won several educational awards, so im excited about it.
it's a nice day here today. will try to get the chicken run sprayed today (it was too windy the other day to do it) and there are always weeds that need spraying/cutting. may also try riding BJ and ponying Gracie- I need to be doing that more so they both get exercised. I always feel bad that Gracie doesn't get much attention.
any plans for this weekend? I know the rain puts a huge damper (pun intended) on traditional memorial day activities, but I hope you're able to enjoy it anyway. take care.

Same here. This is not a good sign for summer. I was wondering how far you are from the flooding they keep showing on National news? Only one way in and out. My little town I am from is like that. Only we were on a mountain. Did have a couple of creeks that flooded. Will keep you in my prayers. Vicki & Big Jax

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well was 47 this morning with a high of 70 today. But tonight dropping down to about 38 they say! No riding time today. Had that complete physical to go for at the union medical center. Three hours driving time alone! Plus time there and then time waiting for a couple of scripts to be filled at the pharmacy killed most of the early afternoon. Got home like 2:30. Kendra that takes care of Bullseye when I'm showing came up for old nasty hay to cover their new lawn area. Spent time shooting the breeze. Then turned out the kids for over an hour on pasture, they're getting up there on more time out now. Then weed whacked all around the entire property and fence lines. Killed the day! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Not sure if they'll pass her with a D or not. Guess I'll find out at some point. I've been talking with a work friend who's son has multiple learning disabilities and she gave me a website about LDs. Seems kids can have a disability in math and not in other things. She has about 50% of the symptoms listed, whatever that means. They gave some suggestions for helping, which I'll try with her. Thanks for asking about her.
Yesssss, there is a sure way to test the fence. Actually, I was trying to talk one of the kids in to it, but they really didn't want to, lol. Don't know why not, haha.

Sunday seems to be the mass flooding day, so be careful. I have decided to just try to haul to mccown a couple of times due to the rain. It is a place I am familiar with and know the ground so well and will feel safe ridding there. I'll try the other spot another time when it's dryer! The farrier was out yesterday and the boys got theirs hooves done and they are all set. Last day of work, I will come back 5/30. Rain is in the forecast but hopefully I can capture a few rides, if not I will get ground work and grooming in there. I also will catch up on rest of the to-do list. I don’t go out of town or doing any other things for vacation as you already know-lol! . I have flown and traveled a many of place my whole life and now I choose to be with my life time love~HORSES! I’ve worked hard all my life to get to where I am now (of course I continue to dream of more with my horses) but my off time is dedicated to them and I’m very happy about that, it truly makes me happy ♡ Have a wonderful day and week ♡

Didn't have time to get on line and find her grade until yesterday. She made a 70, which for her, is one of her higher test scores. And considering it covered all year's worth of stuff, was pretty good. She has her 4th quarter average of C, and I'm not sure, but I think her yearly average will be a D. Jeez! We have a lot of work to do over the summer.
Had a strong wind from the west all day yesterday and I kept hoping it would blow in some of your rain, but the forecast is 0% chance till monday. We are as dry as yall are wet, dang it for both of us. That's just crazy that you can't even get out due to flooding. That's potentially dangerous. Glad your place seems to have some height to it.
Worked on the fence yesterday and it looks better, replaced a few stakes and cut branches off it, but whether or not the charge is getting to it, don't know. Charged up the battery and the charger is firing well. If my work yesterday didn't fix it, don't know what to do next.
Too windy to spray, so cut grass (er, dandilions) instead.
well, hope your Friday is okay, though it sounds like it's going to be another wet one.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well at least it stayed above 40 this morning, 43 is better than the 37 they were calling for. But it never even hit 60 today, and it was overcast! So another kinda chilly nasty day. But I did get both Indy Lunged and Paige ridden. Then they went out, with sheets on of course, gotta keep those show coats from blowing out! Then weed whacked two pastures and around the indoor. Then mowed those two smaller pastures and didn't have a jacket on, by the time I finished I had goosebumps going on! LOL! Sure hope spring returns soon! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hello! It's been so busy and stressful nearing the end of my last semester before summer. I've finished uni now and I'm pleased to say I have free time to spend with my lovely boys. Dino is doing really well, I've been working hard with him to build his confidence and he's showing great improvement when ridden. For some reason everything is more scary when he can't see me to reassure him.
Had a lovely evening ride today, a pheasant shot out of the bushes between the fields and instead of spooking dino, although he flinched, turned his head to look for me. I was so proud he thought before running off. Gave him a good boy pat and rode home. Sounds real simple but it's made my year!
How's it all going up your way? Hope the weathers good!
Take care

gotta fix the electric fence. for some reason, it wasn't getting a charge, so the horses broke out of it. fixing the downed wire will be the easy part, figuring out why it's not getting a charge might take longer. the charger is definitely putting out a shock.
the horses (aka: piggies) have eaten down almost a whole round bale even with pasture grass to eat too. not sure if i'll completely shut them off pasture for a month or so, cause then i'll have to slowly reintroduce them to grass. I might just leave a bale available, and hope they eat less grass since they also have the hay to eat. so far, they seem to be eating both with gusto. sigh.
how's your weather look for today? hope you get mostly sunshine and maybe a bit of riding time.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Had the farrier this morning for new shoes on Paige and he check Indy's trim, Indy was done down at the show and he just wanted to touch him up, and for free! That was nice of him. Then I kinda hibernated in the house for a while, it was 51 this morning and a windchill of 43, never got above 55 with winds. So kids were in the indoor for work and then hay in the barn. I did mow another pasture and two more sides of the indoor arena. Buy then I had windburn on my face and said time to hit the house. I cleaned my English saddle up, as it's sold and leaving on Saturday! Yay! Going down to 37 tonight, winter's back! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.
