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. Well it's snowing again! And I wonder why I'm so sick, just being out there every other day moving this stuff in the cold is getting to my poor lungs and sinuses. Plus the fact that Marissa had the head cold about 10 days ago and I think passed it around the barn. Of course, I never get just a head cold! Well feel about 25% better than yesterday. Spent the day in the house on the couch, took a few naps. Resting helps. If I could only teach Indy to feed himself and Bullseye, and come to the house and make me a meal or two, I'd have it made! LOL! We got lucky, only about an inch of new snow, but under it is the 4 inches of wet, now frozen stuff from Tuesday! I'll never get that cleaned up. Oh well, Yak Trax for me! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi! What crazy weather we're having. Was bitterly cold then warmed up for a day causing rain all day, back to cold and heavy wet snow yesterday! Very slick out!
I was coming home from work and thought I'd get the mail. I was only going about 10 mph, touched my brake, not realizing I was on ice and slid off the road almost hitting the mailbox as the back end of my truck sunk in the muddy field! lol I called my husband, he just got up, so he hooked his truck up to mine. The road was pure ice, so his truck was fishtailing in front of me trying to pull me out. He was trying to be easy so not to cause any damage but he finally put the peddle down giving me a hard jerk!! Got me out! Yay! I was on the gas the whole time in 4 wheel drive even!! That was a soupy mess in the field! Oh then the salt truck came-what timing huh? lol Just had to share-I'm still laughing!!
Left a stayed home today vote :)

Mockingbirds are cheeky little birds, for sure. I'd say they're probably my favorite though. I like their long varied songs, and they seem to sing regardless of the weather or how cold it is. Every year there's a batch raised in the holly bush by the front porch and in the cedar tree out at the corner of the riding ring.
Mud here too, although our rainfall has been light and hasn't amounted to much. Your colder temps and high winds sound so miserable though. Ugh.
Yesterday was Allie's second birthday and I didn't even get to see her thanks to a long miserable day at work. I'll have to make up for it with apples, carrots, and peppermints today.
Well, wish I could help you slosh through your morning feeding. Keep the hot tea and coffee going. Take care.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well I woke up feeling worse! If I thought that was possible. And we had 3 or 4 inches of snow mixed with sleet and then the rain on top of it. It was too heavy to try to snow throw and I felt like crap so I just trudged through it. I did have to plow about 60% of my driveway to get out to the doctor. So I went back to bed this morning and passed out, had the chills, fever and the pukes! Not good. So I got to the doctor and don't have the flu thank goodness. But I've got a sinus infection with asthmatic bronchitis! So now I'm on the Med-Dose pack. Two days of bed rest, and no going to ride Paige! I'm bummed about not seeing my girl. But I really don't feel up to it! Oh guess what 2 to 4 inches of wet snow again tonight! GEZZZ! Marion and the blondes.

ha ha! I just now realized that PROFILE picture is from when you came to Mccown and rode!!!! I received my 1st shipment of Fly Predator’s. Now that makes me feel closer to spring for sure. I will watch and see when I need to start my “Freedom 45" spot treatment for fly control on the horses. Just think-this weekend we set the clocks forward~another spring sign. Now let’s hope Mother Nature is as ready as we all are. Have a wonderful hump day ♡

nothing about your forecast sounds pleasant at all. ours is similar without the frozen parts. wet.
glad the doves are gone. if they were domestic birds, maybe that explains their lack of self preservation. maybe they were looking for a new coop around people? who knows.
well, we shall continue to use our mud boots daily for now. have a good wed.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well I hate to sound like a broken record! BUT! It snowing and sleeting! Have about 3 inches all ready. And they say maybe turning to rain by morning, oh what a mess that'll be to clean up! And gee guess what? More snow Wed into Thurs. Like between 4 to 8 inches! No wonder they had to re-route the Alaskan Dog Sledding Races cause of no snow in yes, Alaska! Cause the United States has it all! Anyhow, sinuses are clogged, got a doctors appointment for 2 pm on Wed. Hope I can get out of here to get there. On a brighter note, I was the one to ride today. Yep Marissa don't feel good either. Only hers is simple, crampy! Like I can't breath and you have me up here! LOL! Paige was very good. I only lasted about 30 minutes and called it a day! LOL! But I felt good being with her. Boys at home got some hay when I got home and I hit the couch! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hello Still raining/snowing? yesterday we had the high winds. Made it to the eye doctors but roads were nasty. Told next time I'm cancelling. Calling for sleet/freezing rain tonight.

Hey King Cisco, bet mom brings you more carrots today! Nice chatting with you, I always enjoy our visits!!! ♥ we are a soupy, muddy mess here. It will still rain till Thursday or Friday… Feeding time is really all I had with the boys. Their stalls are dry but everywhere else is horrible. It will be week upon weeks before I can ride around the home property. So on my off days I will be forced to ride at Mccown Lake Whitney~what a shame right! NOT… Have a wonderful day :)

I was only 9 years old when..
I got Eli and so I didn't know ANYTHING about training him.
We had him to where he'd pull a cart with help from a trainer, but then he didn't get anymore lessons. Now that I'm older, I know how to do most of the training stuff, so hopefully I can train Eli. He may be small, but he thinks he's a draft horse! haha

That's so weird about the doves. Can you hang up pie tin or something for a while?
We had an unexpected sunny warm day yesterday, so I saddled up BJ and rode in the field next door. Just a walk mostly because he's out of shape, but we both enjoyed it. Sure hope you'll be able to ride before the clinic. I bet most of you will be in the same boat though.
Well, back to work. Hope you have a good Tuesday.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well this cold is now into my sinuses and I feel like big time crap! Woke up at 3 am and couldn't breath good, went into a panic attack and sat up at the computer till 6:30 am! Needless to say, I did take a nap this morning and then had to go and move snow for two hours out in the wind and cold! OHY. But I'm making a doctors appointment for Wed and get it checked out and also why my throat is still bothering me! Boys were in needless to say also, but give them hay and more warm water and they're are happy as can be. Farrier coming in the am to trim Indy. then at noontime I'll go over by Paige. Hopefully I'll sleep tonight! Or should I say breath better and sleep! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Cheryl & Cisco, congrats on HOTM :) I know it was a surprise but you're definitely deserving of the title :) hope you had a wonderful weekend even with the bad weather. The rain held off for a bit on Saturday. It didn't rain until that evening so I was able to get a ride in on Koot Saturday along with a few of my friends/his horsey buddies. He was pretty happy! But it rained like crazy on Sunday with lightening and thunder and some parts even got hail! Voted. XOXO Danya and Koot

wonder what's so great about your front porch that the doves like being there even though they're dying in mass? are the cats putting out bird seed? im sure they're having a blast.
yep, rainy and muddy here too. I finally found a fella that'll come out and bushhog for me, spread lime/fertilizer, whatever I need for the pasture. that's a relief. not many folks will bushhog for hire anymore, and I don't have a tractor, so my pasture looks pretty ragged. i'll have him out when it dries up a bit.
well, here we are at Monday again. hope you have a good one.

Hi Cisco, Congrats on HOTM! WHOO HOO way to go! Great surprise! here's a vote for ya. Well the temps didn't get past 23, but that at least kept it at snow! So far about 3 new inches and still snowing. And you just know how much I'm gonna feel like snow throwing and plowing tomorrow with feeling like crap! It's starting to settle in my sinuses now! I knew it would, that's my body! Did go over to Paige today, got some showmanship down and Marissa was cuing me in between teaching a jumping lesson. What a difference just the position of my shoulders make in doing the maneuvers correctly and having the horse more correctly off my body language! Got home, made some late lunch and passed out on the couch for a couple of hours. I'm probably going to call the doctor once again and tell them about this new health issue! I just finished the last of the antibiotic for my throat today. And it's not killing the infection color in my sinuses. Oh well, hopefully the weather will change for the best and I'll be better fast! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

YAY! so glad to see you got HOTM! congrats!
Yes, Im so happy for Atlas, I trust Johnny to give him a good home and to bring him to his best abillites. I have seen him work with Claire's morgan horses when we hooked up her green broke mare to a cart for the 1st few times. And he is a great rider (he is 65 yrs old!), he used to do endurance races and competed in driving classes. I offered to help Johnny whens he hooks him to a cart, so i'll get to see how he is coming along in a few months!!
Im excited to go back to helpin Charlie! I did meet his intern once and he seemed like a nice guy. I can understand his situation, Charlie's way of teaching people is so different. I had never ridden reining horses before I went to go work for him and it took me a while to catch on. Charlie usually keeps quiet until you make a mistake and he will correct you for it. so its hard to figure out what he wants.

Sounds like your weather is a crappy as mine. Was supposed to get some sun and higher temps, but it didn't happen. Now they are calling for high winds for Monday. Possible snow/mix w/rain on Tuesday. Ice is building up on my roofs. Going to have to see if one of my nephews can come over shovel as much snow off as they can. I'm too old to be on a roof.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well it's getting warmer with the sun, but still only 24 degrees. But the sun is strong and melting off some ice and snow! I think that was just to make room for Sundays storm of 3 to 5 inches with some sleet and ice mixed in with it! Oh the joys of winter! NOT! Today was an easy day for Paige, rode in the snaffle bit and just did some fun things, like Marissa was teaching two of her POA kids to do the things Paige is doing, buy using Paige as the demo horse. Paige loved it! And Paige didn't realize she was working! LOL! Well guess who's coming down with an URI! Yep I've got the nice runny nose and feel like crap! Once again, oh the joys of winter!

Snow 3 days in a row? Did all that wind blow you way north? It does sound miserable.
So all the horses were worried when you took away their buckets? They ARE fond of their buckets. Are your kids getting used to their new hay nets?
That's cute the kitten was looking in the window. He's maybe trying to decide if he likes what he sees in there. Typical cat that wants in and then back out again.
No ride time today. My sister came up for a visit so I had to spend the day cleaning and running errands. Enjoyed seeing her though.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well it was 9 degrees and going up to about 23 today, sun was strong, which was good to melt off some of the ice in the gravel part of my driveway. Put down 40lbs of ice melt and a lot was gone when I got home from over at Marissa's. Had my first ride on Paige since she went to school. It was good to be on her again. We did some lose work, then I did Pattern #1 of the Ranch Horse Pleasure Class. Going to try adding that as a new event this year. It's a combo of Western Pleasure, Pattern (like reining) and a few obstacles like trail class. She loves things where she's mixing it up. So do I! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Snow with ice ugg. This weather is really crazy for all of us. I keep thinking it has to give. But, the give might be worse. That's funny that they knew their buckets were gone. Some people say "horses are stupid". They sure know when you change something lol. I groomed Jax. Can't believe how much he is shedding with it being so cold. He is so funny. Looked like he was going to sleep. He drops his head so far down. Hope you don't get a lot of ice. Makes it so dangerous for you and the herd. Vicki & Big Jax
