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).

Love that she comes to you no matter what. She is going to be awesome. Very hot and humid here. Did a lot of work inside today. Rode last night. Humidity was just coming in as we finished riding. I will go out tomorrow. If its this hot I'll just do a little ground work, bath him and give lots of treats. Going to the rodeo Saturday night. Its Veterans appreciation night. Veterans and service men and women get in free. Always a great time. They make sure our men and women are honored. Have a great weekend. Vicki & Big Jax

Where food is concerned, it doesn't take them long to learn the routine, does it.
I have to take an extra wrap on Allie's bosel too. I hear that offsets the balance some, and I've looked for a smaller 10 inch bosel, but only the serious bosel makers seem to have them and they cost way more than my budget.
Didn't get to ride yesterday (4 appointments in 1 day!), so after I got home, I finished laying the decking. Now I can finally bolt down the pool ladder so my daughter can get in the pool. I hate so much, for her sake, that it took me all summer to do, but I just couldn't make it happen any faster. Still have the railing and stairs to do, but those aren't as much of a rush.
Well, better get ready for work. Hope you have a great friday.

So happy for you that you found Lilly. What a little honey. I hope you have many wonderful rides together. Glad her girth itch is doing better already.
Wow, that barn is quite the family affair. Nice for them to have the whole family involved. I wish my kids had an interest in the horses, but I totally understand that they have to do their own thing. Still, it would have been nice to be able to share that time and experiences with them.
I rode Allie yesterday morning. She did pretty good, so I kept the ride short. It was hot anyway. Cut more grass and then worked on the deck. I'd hoped to finish laying all the decking, but wouldn't you know, I ran out of screws. Probably only need 20 more.
Well, hope your thursday is a good one

Hi & a Vote,
It's wonderful to hear that Lilly is working out so nicely for you! This evening I was over to feed and clean where Rocky lives. Blue got to too and see his doggie friend Hailey, so he was a very happy pup too!

Oh, that's great that she's settling in and being her level-headed self. Always worry a horse will do a 180 when they go to a new place, at least for a while. Yeah, her pretty little head may need a cob size. How about the saddle? She looks pretty wide, but will a standard size fit her okay? Do you have a neoprene girth? I had a horse with chronic girth sores once and a neoprene girth worked pretty good for her. She had been a rental trail horse for several years and the girth sores would pop up in a heart beat. I'm sure Lilly's issues aren't as bad. Anyway, glad she's home and doing good. What kind of place did she come from? It looked like a training barn, but also looked like a place that regularly buys and sells horses?
Didn't get any horse time yesterday, but I did get a lot of grass cut and worked on the deck. I did my first cut around a post and I'm kinda proud of it....of course, I ruined another board first try, but oh well, gotta learn somehow.
Well, hope you have a great wednesday.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well woke up to rain and heavy duty humidity! Rain stopped a little bit around 10 am, so at least Honey and I got in a 1.75 mile walk! Then just after I hooked up to the trailer, it started all over again! So next best thing, decided to vacuum the house and dust! I hate house work! Got that done and went and dodged rain drops to give the boys hay and fresh water for lunch. Came in and just vegged on the computer for a while. About 4:30 or so the sun came out, but it was worse with the humidity. Couldn't do anything! At 7 pm when I fed, it was like walking on a sponge! I'm so sick of the rain! We're leaving around 9 am tomorrow. So we'll be back on HC Monday night! Probably post maybe in the am how it's going and some FB Pictures if Jill takes any! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi & a vote,
Congrats and hoping Lily works out nicely for you!
I will take care of horses at the farm on Wednesday (tomorrow) when my friend is away and then on Saturday evening and Sunday morning. So will be extra barn time with Rocky (and Blue). Hailey (the dog) will be gone Sat-Sun, so Blue will be sad, but he'll see her Wednesday.
Then we'll probably try for a trail ride when my friend returns for Sunday evening.

A big congratulations on getting Lilly, she's so pretty. She looks like a full sized registered QH, but in smallness. And wow, riding around cows and all with that tarp all over her. You're gonna have lots of good rides with that one. Have you stopped grinning yet?

Lillie is a good name. How do the other girls like her. Know the pecking order can be tough. Cisco doesn't like the other horses near his herd.
The clinic was awesome. Joe Hayes did an excellent job. They had 10 riders come in with different problems. One thing he said helped with instructions I get from my trainer Lexie. He explained how to keep a horses shoulder up. Lexie will tell me when I ride I drop Jax shoulder. Never quite understood. He explained using his hands. And it clicked lol. They provide food even for the auditors. The ranch was beautiful. The owner told me it was his grandfathers. Gave me some history of the Ranch. Cool and no flies. Feel better? Know you were sore.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well the weather today was uncertain, but no rain, but no sun! So I was mowing very wet grass, and without the rear baggers or the shoot would have been clogged more than not! Well I text my farrier this morning and he's out of commission! 9 sutures in his finger from a horse pulling back and ripping a nail through it! So he says maybe Thursday he'll be able to at least do the rears and straighten out that flair! This mare never had a flair in her feet! Well Honey and I got a 1.75 mile walk in this morning. Then I ran to town on a few errands. Got home and the boys went out for almost 3 hours and I mowed the wet lawn and back by the manure pile and the backside of the indoor! Hopefully sunny tomorrow and I can mow those 2 pastures that need it! Packing day too, as we're leaving Wed morning! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Cheryl, even though you're paying for riding so many horses that is awesome that you found a good horse for you :) I hope girth itch can be fixed once she gets to you so it doesn't keep being a problem. When are you getting her? I was able to get Koot out on Saturday. I cleaned his stall and took him out and then he got some yummy carrots :) I am hoping to see him after work today, but I'll see how that goes. I have to go check on my dad's cats every day after work this week since he's on vacation. Voted. XOXO Danya and Koot

Hi & a vote,
Got an evening ride in on Rocky last night, which was nice & cool by the the time were were out on the trails. My friend rode both her horses, so I did two loops with Rocky on the trail. Blue was along with his BFF doggie friend Hailey too.
In the meantime, my daughter's truck I think is Ram 1500 series with towing package. Of course, she hasn't tried to tow with it yet.

The sorrel does sound like a good horse. Are you going back to see her today and close the deal? Excited for you! Can't wait to hear all about her and see some pics.
Sorry your back is being grumpy after riding saturday. Sometimes, it seems like riding helps kinda wiggle everything into place and loosen up, sometimes it doesnt. Hope you recover soon.
It was pretty hot and humid and still here, so I didn't ride, just gave Cinni a hoof trim. By the time I straightened up from the last hoof, I was soaking wet and a little nauseated, don't know if it was the heat or what I had for lunch. The horses were all soaking wet too anyway, so we all took the day off.
Well, hope you have a great start to your week.

Can't wait to see pictures. The sorrel sounds like a good choice. Will you take her to Steve's? Have you heard of Joe Hayes? I am going to a clinic tomorrow that he is doing. He is being hosted by Win$um Ranch. He is from Gainesville, Texas. Not taking Jax I will go and pay the audit fee. My friend Nancy is going with me. It will be fun for us. Always up to learning something new. On August 22 we have a clinication from Clinton Anderson coming to the barn. That will be fun and interesting. I get to use Jax and hopefully learn some new ground work. Good luck with the sorrel. What will you name her? Vicki & Big Jax

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Big beautiful blue sky and cool temps this morning! Was over by Marissa's for our pre-show clinic by 9:20 and Laura had Paige tacked up already and going to lunge. She wasn't bad, I rode too and she was okay. But when we went to do Showmanship, she's got that head bob going on, but yet her foot falls are even on the diagonals and not short stepping anywhere! Can't figure it out! Palpated her chest, no flinching, her back no flinching. I don't know! Her right hind is long on the outside and turning out, could be throwing her off, shoes tomorrow I hope! Got home by 2:30 pm and turned the boys our for a long time! No flies really to speak of and a nice breeze! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi & a Vote,
Have company this weekend, so not on normal schedule. Anyway, the cats were getting to play a lot and we visited my Mom at the nursing home. Hoping to get in a therapy dog visit with Blue this afternoon and maybe a ride on Rocky if it's nice this evening.
My daughter got a used truck to replace hers that was totaled. She got a 2015 RAM. I don't know all the specs, but she said she's loving it. Her other truck ran good, but was OLD.

Oh Cheryl, that's wonderful if that sorrel is the one. She sounds like a little gem. What breed is she? Gaited? Will Steve get to look at her at all? Fingers crossed for you.
That's cool that you got a little magnet therapy done on your back and that it helped some. Sew magnets into your pjs, lol.
I'm convinced that whoever does the "feels like" on my weather app sits inside in the a/c and says, "yeah, it feels pretty decent". 86% humidity, 0 wind speed, and they had the feels like at the real temp. Balony! The sun felt like it was shining through a magnifying glass, and I spent the day dripping wet. I want to tell them to go out and cut grass, and then post what the feels like is. Uh huh, that's what I thought, lol.
Do you vaccinate twice a year? I'm hearing that vaccines only last 6 mo (have never heard that before) and there are reports (from the southern states) of horses getting EEE and dying if they don't get vaccinated every 6 mo. I had heard once a year is enough, but to make sure it's every 12 mo on the nose, because the mosquitos never really die out over our mild winters.
Spent most of yesterday outside (I too got a bit crispy fried), which is how I like it. I rode Allie in the morning and then worked on the deck in the afternoon. Just kept Allie at a walk, practiced a little sidepassing on the fence, backng, walking straight lines, etc. She was a little spooky and had a hard time concentrating at first, but we finished relaxed. Only have a little more decking to go to have all the boards on, then still have railing and stairs to do, but once the floor is done, I can put the pool ladder on so Mattie can get in. Putting the floor down diagonally has taken a lot longer, but it looks good.
Well, hope you have a great sunday. Take care.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well that rain last night got to be really heavy duty, but at least no thunder. Rain gauge had 2.25 inches in it this morning! And the pastures and grass are like sponges again! Well Kevin never made it over to change the battery today! UGH! Started to pack up some more stuff for the last horse show next week! Then went over and lunged, rode and did only one showmanship pattern. I noticed a little head bob on jogging the pattern, but yet didn't feel her off at all when riding! So I'll bring some Bute over tomorrow and see what we got.! We're leading the state in like three classes, I really would like to finish it out! But Paige comes first, so we will see! Got home and it was about 78 F degrees with a really nice cool breeze, so the boys went out, a little muddy, but they went out for like 2.5 hours. Hopefully a couple of days of sun and I'll be able to mow and be ready to leave on Wed morning! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

So exciting. I will keep my fingers crossed. It's so nice to have someone who can help when picking out a new horse. I enjoy Steve's videos so much. You and and the others I have met on here are on my bucket list. If I make it to Texas and we meet, I hope Steve and Amanda will be part of it. I hear you on the height part. I'm not much taller. I tell Big Jax I like his 14'2hands lol. Our cool weather is leaving too. It was a nice break from the humidity. I prefer the heat to the cold. Just hard to move and breath when its so humid.

Oh, good luck looking at the 2 mares today. Hope at least one of them is a good fit for you. Fingers crossed.
Ugh, sorry your heat us back up over 100. Not too much longer, hopefully.
I kinda chucked everything I should've done yesterday and rode Allie (she was kinda pissy at the lope, ducking and shaking her head like she was considering a buck, though she never did. After schooling, we chased a ball around and I swear, she kept kicking it on purpose and mostly followed it of her own accord. Funny) and then BJ bareback. Also took a swim. I'll knuckle down to business today.
Well, good luck with the mares and have a great saturday.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well overcast most of the day, and only made it to about 77F with a breeze! YAY, not to bad for working outside! Walter came and got me with the big rack truck and we went and got the new battery for the tractor and then to get the 3 tons of 3/4 inch QP for building up the barking pad for the Living Quarters trailer. Now the refrigerator will be level at all times! Walter jumped the tractor with his cables from his truck, Kevin will put the new battery in Sat morn for me. Got that all spread and built up and level. Then took yesterday's nap, I was hurtin! Got up and then turned the boys out and took Honey for our 1.5 mile walk. Came home, ate a late lunch and then mowed some more. But had to abandon ship! Black clouds moving in! Went and brought the boys in, parked the lawn tractor and down it came! Just made it in the nick of time! Bad T-Storms slated for during the wee hours of the night! Poor Honey! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi & a vote,
So, my daughter's truck is totaled and damage too much to be considering fixing it and it has to be dependable enough to tow the horse trailer. She has a 3-horse bumper-pull, so now she wants truck suggestions. This one was a Ford F150 and a little underpowered if 3 horses were in. Originally she had an F250 some years back, but that's another story...

HI Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well it was kinda hot but very humid! Honey and I got our walk in very early this morning, did a 1.5 mile walk. Decided to fire up the big tractor, NOT, battery dead! Oh well going for a new one tomorrow! It's on charge but not charging, it's like 12 years old, oh well, got my money's worth out of that one! LOL! Weed whacked the two pastures and out by the indoor. Got cleaned up and went over to work with Paige. Lunge for 15 minutes and had an awesome 45 minute lesson! Hosed her off and headed home! To many flies out there, so the boys got a late lunch of hay and fresh water. I then got the lawn tractor out and did the baby pasture, a small pasture, out by the manure pile and over on the in side of the indoor arena. By then it was 6 pm and I called it a day! No nappy today, so I'm beat right now! I hear the couch calling my name! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

HI Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well got Paige's laundry done this morning. And put all my clean laundry back in the trailer. That's ready to go! Honey got in a mile walk this morning. Then I went over to the Fair and watched Karolina's student Lia show Butters, a Palomino gelding in the large pony hunters! He's so quiet and nice and even on the jumps and flats. He's really a registered quarter horse but stands 14.3 and that's a large pony hunter to those people. Stopped on the way home and got 2 bags of Paige's feed and 25 bales of pelleted bedding for the barn. Got home and turned the boys out, about 83 degrees and no breeze really to speak of. Unloaded the bedding in the barn and then started to mow. Got through the front yard and side and noticed Indy acting up! Yep, he had it with the flies! Well he lasted 2 hours anyhow. Went and brought them in and put their fans on them. Then I proceeded to finish mowing. Yards all done! More to be done tomorrow after my lesson at Marissa's with Paige.

Hi & a vote,
Oh boy, I just got a call from my daughter that her truck got hit (while parked at her gated apartment complex) like 4:30am. Her F150 hit so hard it was moved over into car parked next to it!! She said there was quite a bit of damage to the truck. So, now it is towed and she has an rental through the insurance. But, the truck while running great and in good shape is old... afraid it might get totaled by the insurance!

I keep forgetting to tell you how much I love Steve's post of the Gypsy horse on FB. I wish we lived closer. I really like his style. This Monday I am going to a clinic couple of hours away. the clinic is being run by George Hayes. He is from Texas. I think it is on ground work. Friend has the day off we thought it would be fun. She knows the people who own Win $um Ranch.

Jax did awesome at the show. He was so good! They didn't place, but he got experience and that is just as good. Sofia did place on her pony in the hunter/jumper classes. She is a great little rider. I learned so much about showing with her and her mom (Jen). So I guess you can say, Jax and I both got schooled :). We did get a down pour doing the show. Held up in a barn near the arena entrance. Then it hit later when we were at the trailer. Jen tried loading him (were have ground lightening). Little bugger wouldn't load for her. I took the lead line told him stop being naughty and he followed me into the trailer. Jen said loves his mother. Made me smile. Even if he was being naughty in the pouring rain. Vicki & Big Jax

Whaaaaa? 100,000?! Good heavens, didn't spend that much on my house! Crazy! Your horse is out there somewhere.
How's your back? Is it letting you sleep all night?
Another day of off and on showers and I don't think it ever quite hit 80. So weird for august, but I'm sure not gonna complain, especially about the temps.
The K12 stuff wasn't hard to straighten out, apparently a couple of the papers had been cropped during the scan and upload process and they couldn't see all the info, so I just had to rescan them. Fingers crossed.
I probably won't be on tomorrow, but hope you have a great couple of days.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well got a lot of little things done today. That was after I went back over to the Horse Show. Now it's the Sussex County Farm and Horse show, all the English stuff. A friends daughter, 7 years old, was riding in flat and jumping classes. KK is just awesome and has some really good pony's! Got home and turned the boys out, but the humidity was a little high and the flies were horrible! Did 2 loads of human laundry from the show. Cleaned out the trailer and vacuumed it out and will re-stock it tomorrow and put the laundry away. Also will be mowing tomorrow afternoon!

Good heavens, can you imagine paying that much, site unseen, and getting a mixed mutt of a horse with dangerous habits instead? Kinda ruins the online horse selling business. Selling horses is crooked enough already.
Glad the adjustment felt better after a few hours and I hope you feel good over the next 2 weeks.
We finally got some measurable rainfall yesterday, a little under 3/4 of an inch. The ground has sucked it up like crazy, no puddles or mud anywhere. I didn't get much done outside and no horse time though. K12 rejected some of my paperwork, probably not official enough, but I'll have to call them today and see how to fix it.
Well, hope you have a great tuesday.

Come visit me, Allie & BJ and his mom Gracie.

HI Cisco,here's a vote for ya. Woke up to 59 F degrees and rain! Rained all day long! Didn't do much other than a few things in the house and then chiro and food shopping. After that it was a major nap time! Didn't get one for 5 days and my body was in need of the late afternoon rest! So Paige did very well with Laura and she even got a 5 and 6th out of 13 in Hunter Under Saddle (English). Got me some 2nd and 3rd in Halter, and my best ever placings in Showmanship and also 2nd under all 4 judges in my Horsemanship riding class! Now to get ready to leave again next Tues or Wed for sure! We show Thurs, Fri, Sat and Sunday, finish up on the 20th of Aug and we're done for the season! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Come visit me, Nuttin But Good. Tkx Cisco and his girls, 18000!, R.I.P. Hi Tech Image, Tks Bella Boo of DC #17400! & MWS Zippn By Indy, Tks, Bella Boo of DC for 22900!.

Hi Cheryl, sorry to hear the trial ride didn't go well. What happened? You'll find a horse that's right for you soon :) I got to see Koot this Sunday, but didn't get to ride because he was just getting fed when I got there and I'm sure he would much rather eat, then go out. I'm going out to see him after work today though. Voted. XOXO Danya and Koot

Come visit me, Kootenai.

Hi & a vote,
Sorry the trial horse wasn't a good one, but that's good you found out!
Saturday I was at the dog adoption clinic in the morning. About 6-7 dogs got pending adoptions! Then short walk by the river and then Blue went for vet well checkup (to keep his therapy dog vet records up-to-date). After this Blue's therapy dog visit to the nursing home and to see Nana. Sunday another visit to the nursing home. Then an evening ride on Rocky with my friend. It was a full moon too! We saw a few deer in the field again.

Come visit me, Rocky (the blue-eyed wonder horse), Comet (has new home) & Cowboy (Thanks for HOTD 1/19/2017!).

I doubt the problem was you, sounds like she had been practicing that habit a while. And no telling what health issues may have been lurking underneath adding to the problem.
Goodness, I'd be scared to death to buy a horse sight unseen and have it shipped, for just that reason. Can you imagine? Yes, there's a good horse out there somewhere. Might take a while. Have you asked your farrier if any of his clients are selling a good horse?
Hope the chiropracter visit goes well today. Backs can sure be a pain.
I had to focus on the school paperwork yesterday after church, so for my outside time, I took Allie and a couple of the dogs for a walk out in the field. Haven't been out there in forever, the university has been doing a lot of work. They've added irrigation lines and hoses, and these poles that measure rain amounts and wind speeds, etc. And fired up those stupid air cannons again. It was so funny though, I saw a deer out in the soybeans that nibbled and left in between the times the cannons went off. Fortunately, we made it out and back before they went off too. Those things are surprisingly loud. Got back and trimmed Allie's feet. It only took 4 years, but she's finally letting me trim without trying to occasionally take her foot away from me. Talk about taking forever for a horse to give up their union card! Sheesh! Gives me hope that one day, she'll make a decent riding horse, one day, lol.
Well, have a good monday and take care.

Come visit me, Allie & BJ and his mom Gracie.

Well, shoot, talk about a horse not being as advertised. Back to looking, huh? But the good news is, your back handled getting on? Thats encouraging!
If I can get all the stuff done on time, k12 starts Aug 23. Gotta get back to doing that stuff; I kinda sulled up friday and couldn't bring myself to work on it.
Hope your chiro appointment helps on mon. It almost sounds like you've got something out of whack again to not be as comfortable at night like you were.
Well, hope you have a great sunday.

Come visit me, Allie & BJ and his mom Gracie.

Wow, she sounds pretty perfect. Yes, hope she is at least half that good. And can your friend ride her if your back just won't let you? Hate that it continues to give you so much trouble.
Had a really nice ride on Allie yesterday morning. She even stayed relaxed during loping. It's like that doubling into the fence clicked something in her brain. We did a little of that, but I read warnings not to do it too much, so we did more circles and figure 8s instead. Still working on softening up that nose at the faster gaits, but at least she's trying. Drug the box around from the saddle and she handled that pretty good too.
Well, gotta head into work today, so better get a move on. Hope you have a great day checking out Chick.

Hi Cheryl! I hope you're able to ride this weekend too! Hope those chiropractor appointments have been helping you. The humidity is supposed to be less this weekend so I'm hoping to get a ride in :) Voted. XOXO Danya and Koot

Hi & a vote,
Hope your trial ride on Saturday goes well. Keep us posted!
Late yesterday had my own doc appt and then got home in time to take Blue for a walk along the river, which I try to do if cool enough. It gets us both out of the house! Sunday is supposed to be really nice, so maybe I'll get a ride in on Rocky then. Blue has vet checkup tomorrow - only to keep his therapy dog vet records up-to-date. After that I'll take him down to visit Nana at the nursing home.
Hope your weekend is good.

Wow, she's bred good! Hope she works out and you can ride her saturday. Will you have a chiropracter visit before?
Aw, bet the baby barn Swallows are cute, taking wobbly flights back and forth.
Yep, wonderful feeling of freedom to take that thing off and turn it in. It totally cramped my style, lol. I celebrated by trimming BJ's feet and riding Allie last night and getting thoroughly sweaty and dusty. Felt so good. Just walked with Allie since I didn't have much daylight left, but she's gotten pretty light to the bosal at a walk. Good girl. The neighbor walked past with their new German shepherd puppy, she's so dang cute, but we had to stop and stare at them for a while (Allie stared, I talked, lol).
Yes, Mattie did find the notebook, so I have to compile attendance and records from that.
Well, hope you have a great friday.

Come visit me, Allie & BJ and his mom Gracie.
