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).

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. WOW what a show. Started with a Tornado going through just behind our barns, it did a lot of property damage to the place and to many homes and roads. But horses and people are all okay. We had a great show! Paige was Circuit Class Champion in Novice Amateur Mares, Novice Amateur Ranch Pleasure, and Amateur Ranch Pleasure, Prizes were (2) those folding logo chairs and a cooler for the circutis and plus we won 2 halters, 2 bottles of Pyrhania Bug Spray, Bag of Peppermint treats, Logo Grooming towels and another lap top case. Put 4 National Halter Points on her and 2 National Ranch Pleasure Points on her lifetime AQHA record. Indy was a good boy, only got lunged due to the heat and that we lost the indoor bubble practice arena to the Tornado. And it was only about 100 feet from our barn. One motor home out past my trailer bad it's roof ripped off! And Saturday night we had another bad storm, that our barn was evacuated to the show indoor arena for the safety of the horses! Got home 9 pm Sunday, spent the day unloading. And had the doctor about my Thyroid. Have to go Thursday for a biopsy! Prayers please folks! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Cisco
Galloping by with some Monday morning votes.
I rode Darby yesterday morning and this morning. We practiced barrels, he did great. It surprised me, since we have not done them in a while. I only trotted the pattern, but loped home a couple times. He seems to take a while to pick up a lope coming home. That's what he needs work on, but the turns are pretty tight. Hoping to lope in between the barrels soon! I plan to ride again tomorrow.
Best wishes!

Yes, he has definitely made you a better horsewoman, and I'm sure you've learned a ton through him.
I don't put the chicks out in the coop till they're at least half grown cause the snakes or rats can get them too easily. Haven't seen the snake the last couple of days, guess he had his fill of water for a bit.
it was drier yesterday and the air felt lighter and cooler. We rode yesterday afternoon. Had an adventure at the pond. BJ lay down in the water, and I guess Gracie thought a gator had got him, so she took off up the hill at a dead run. There was no attempt on her part to help him or see if he was ok, haha. Not a very good mom, lol.
well, hope your week gets off to a good start and you get to ride. Take care.

wish I could remove those memory's from his mind for you :( I hated to come to work this morning, the air was dry and cool and I sure could of rode and mowed today instead of being here ✞ I want to thank you all for all the amazing support throughout the month of June. I hope you enjoyed the Rocky Mtn Horse facts! I surely hope I can tell you many more story’s in the future of he & I riding together…God bless you all…..I am off work Monday & Tuesday so phone votes for the last part of his HOTM run. Not having a computer at home really made this challenging for me, so again I cannot say thanks enough, sending love to you & your herds!!!!!!! Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

Yeah, that fear of being saddled does sound like someone we know. I guess when he gets a break from riding, he reverts to fearing abuse again? They say that the first days of riding sets the tone for the rest of a horse's life.
Didn't get to ride yesterday (seems like I'm always saying that a lot these days, dang it). Just when it was cooling off and I was going to do a little bareback ride, a long winded friend came over and talked till dark. Little Allie made the most of it by standing between us and getting scratches and attention for over an hour. She's such an attention hound.
Well, maybe a ride today? Hope you get one as well.

♥ love seeing deer!!!
We received 1 ¾” of rain last night-the wind was unbelievable!!! I had to go and get feed and grocery’s yesterday and by the time we were finished it was too hot to ride. I did get fly stuff on the boys and checked the fly mask and then just watched them graze for the evening! Working the weekend but will try to do something with them after work but it will be to muddy to ride. Here is our finial tidbit on the Fabulous Rocky Mountain Horse Breed!
*TOBE was used for breeding until July of his thirty-fourth year, and he passed on his gait, disposition, and other great qualities to his offspring. It has been said that TOBE's progeny followed in his "perfectly-timed" footsteps. TOBE sired many fine horses before his death at the ripe old age of thirty-seven. One outstanding trait passed on was longevity, as many of his offspring were still breeding into their late twenties and early thirties.
Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

Goodness! no, copperheads in the house are definitely NOT welcome. My parents have them down their way, I've only seen 1 one the road here. Usually just black snakes, thank goodness.
We had some big storms come through yesterday evening, so didn't even get to feed. There was a lot of lightening about, wouldn't have been safe to go out. They left limbs and leaves scattered everywhere and a tree across the road just down from us. Other than a couple of tomatoes blowing over, my place seems to be okay, thankfully. Maybe the horses got a layer of salt washed off in the process. It was 80 degrees yesterday morning at 6:30, when it should have been at its coolest. Ugh, too hot, especially for June.
well, hope you have a good saturday. Did you get to ride Cisco yesterday?
PS. don't you just love getting to see deer? they're always so pretty (except when they're directly in front of your car). maybe your local deer numbers are on the rise.

Dropping off a Friday morning vote, the farrier for Darby is coming Saturday. I have been holding off on riding due to his long hooves. Do you do the flying lead change? Or come down to a trot before? I'm having trouble with the flying lead change, I don't think he knows hot to do it.
He has got beautiful tight turn though, when I felt him turn a barrel once at a trot I just knew he could be a great barrel racer. That's what the lady I bought him from said too, she use to ride barrels on him. Well hope your day goes well, best wishes!

Lol, mine do the same thing when I take them in the field next door. It's like they're at a buffet line and I won't let them eat. Glad you had a good ride on Cisco and hope the loping goes well today. Yes, can totally understand not having clinics in the heat of the summer.

Nice that Cisco is doing so well. I know how you feel when you say it feels good to be back in the saddle. Found new farrier. He cleaned Jax feet up nice. Didn't tell him anything, but he knew could tell by the look on his face. No little ones tomorrow so going to the barn early morning before the rain hits. Lots of errands to do. Once in while its nice to get it all done before the weekend comes. Hope you make it out to the pasture with Cisco tomorrow. Have a great ride. Vicki & Big Jax

so glad you had a good ride on Cisco. hope you can again today. glad your humidity broke a bit too. we are supposed to be a bit cooler this coming weekend as well.
went out a did some groundwork with Allie this morning and then hosed her off. she was less worried by the hose today. BJ kept butting in and being a nuisance, like he wanted some attention too, so of course, he got some love and hugs along the way. Allie is really working well on the ground, but I remember I had an attitude to work through at first, and I may have to deal with it in the saddle too. definitely plan on putting the round pen up for the first few real rides so I can fuss at her if I have to.
hope you have a good thur. any clinics coming up that you're planning on attending?

Thank you for voting for Whiskey while I was unavailable the last few days. Whiskey sends you all double loves and hugs ♥ I am actually off work tomorrow and back the weekend!
* In the early 1960s, Sam Tuttle managed the trail riding concession at the Natural Bridge State Park in Powell County, Kentucky. He had as many as fifty horses there, including TOBE. This stallion was often seen tied to the hitching post alongside all the mares. He became quite well known in the ten or so years he was ridden there. Besides breeding, TOBE was used as a trail horse. He carried Sam, and sometimes the trail guides who worked for Sam, with sure-footed ease over mountainous terrain for many years. Although Sam would allow other people to ride TOBE occasionally, it was always a ride closely supervised. He loved to show off his beloved stallion, but also kept a close eye on him. Everyone who rode TOBE enjoyed his gentle temperament and comfortable gait. It amazed people to think the well-mannered horse they were riding was indeed a breeding stallion.
Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

Stopping by with cool morning a tap on your horseshoe. Arena is drying out nicely, hope to ride soon. I hope your week is going good, with sunshine and hopefully horsey time. Over all weather is super hot here during the days, summer has really kicked in! Darby is great, he loves his new treats! It's some alfalfa hay that I give him a handful every once in a while. He eats it up and wants more! Well have a wonderful blessed Wednesday, love to all and best wishes!!!

So glad you had a good day with Cisco. Hope you can have another one today.
didn't get much horse time in yesterday. Trimmed Cinni's feet (it's so hard to work under that little mini, and her feet are SO hard), and then hosed off everybody else. They were covered in several layers of sweat and dust, poor babies. They all felt better afterwards.
kinda stuck with Mattie's pool. I never could find anyone to put it up, so now I'm trying to round up some help. It'll take several people to handle the wall and the liner.
Well, back to work today. Hope you have a good wednesday

Glad to hear U had a great workout with Cisco, Harvest is 3/4 done, very tired, it's a nice crop this year Lilly and I enjoy eating cherries just about every night, toying with the idea about loading her up and trailering her into HoodRiver just 10 miles away to the Saddle Club Trail course challenge this weekend on the 27th, not sure how busy we will be and it's suppose to hit 106 * on Saturday, insane for Oregon, I think I will give her a bath on Friday and see what Saturday is gonna look like, it would be kinda fun I think, it would be a first of any kind of competing for us.

yesterday afternoon wasn't quite so oppressive, so I cut grass after supper. I would've ridden, but my daughter forgot to let the horses out at lunch time, so they were grouchy and very hungry when I got home.
youre probably right, Cisco remembers his old experiences and half expects them to repeat after he's had some time off. my niece's mare has ADD, im sure, and Allie might as well.
been busy saddle shopping on line, poor me (lol, not). ive learned a lot about rigging types and tree materials and whatnot. the Tucker saddles fit Allie's dad, and shes just like him, but im also looking at circle y flex 2 trees in the medium width. they also make some gaited saddles with the flex trees. it's just a bit more of a gamble that they'll fit her well, though they should. I really like the idea of the flex trees, and Tucker makes them as well, in their Gen II line. of course, all of these are the newer lines, and therefore, a bit expensive. i'll have more in my little island pony mustang than I have in my nice QHs and their tack. oh well, want her and I to be comfy going down the trail.
well, I have a lot of errands and chores to get to today, so better get busy. hope you have a good tue.

Cimarron's been a good boy, but we had a bit of an accident today on our ride. A friend and I had cleared out some brush to make a trail through the woods on the property, and it seemed quite nice. However, when I rode Cimarron onto the trail (I was also ponying his girlfriend Willow), we took maybe ten steps out and he suddenly sank up to his belly in the dirt/mud. The ground seemed solid when I walked on it earlier, but apparently it was just a trick. So poor Cimarron frantically lunged forward several times and finally made it onto a patch of solid ground, with Willow right behind him. He cut his back legs up, but other than that, both he and Willow are no worse for the wear. However, it scared the heck out of me and him both. An eventful day indeed.
