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 that wintery mix turned into heavy wet snow! About a solid 2 inches of it. Did have to get the big tractor out and plow the driveway, cause there was no way my truck would get up it! Plus cleaned out in front of the smaller gooseneck. I take it Friday to get those two tires checked out and then haul Paige and Indy over to Marissa's on Sat. Indy will stay a couple of days to get his feet trimmed, as Jason won't drive all the way up here to do one horse! So anyhow, got Paige and Indy to the indoor and lunged them both. By then I was out of energy! Cause I did have to do some shoveling this time! Well hopefully tomorrow's sun and 45 F degrees will melt more off! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Goodness, you've had the wind too? Sounds like Sunset is coming along well. How is she with her feet and regular currying?
So sorry I didn't get on yesterday, just ran out of time. It's been raining every day since friday, a lot of wind, but thankfully no tornadoes around here. No horse news except that they're a muddy, scrungy-looking bunch.
Well, off to work. Hope you have a great tuesday.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well another nasty day out there! Did run downtown this morning and get feed for Indy and Paige. Stopped at the grocery store and got a shopping cart full of leftover Sunday's papers to give to the Rescue Retreat Honey came from for the dog and cat crates. They go through a lot of them. Got home before the rains came. Which is now ice and sleet. Going down shortly to feed, it'll be a YakTrax walk to the barn! Didn't do anything with the horses, winds are steady at 20-25 mph with gusts at 45 mph! Not nice at all! Supposed to change over to maybe all snow overnight, 1 to 3 inches maybe. But right now, the ice hanging off the deck railing is 1 inch long! Glad I don't have to drive in this anymore! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

its snowing here yet again, they didnt call for it, its suppose to be a melt day, Lilly is standing out in it starring into the distance, not sure if she's watching something or just so sick of all this snow she;s lost hope LOL
Ive been putting the Goat boys in the extra stall I made,when its bed time because Daniel was limping the other day, not sure if he got rolled on or stepped on or was just having some kind of issue, I looked at his hoof and it was fine, he is doing better now, and I think Lilly likes sleeping i her stall all by herself, she can stretch out that way.Well take care and lets get this winter over with !! Love Suz, Lilly and the Goat Boys

So sorry I haven't been on. I worked Friday night, had a long shift Saturday night and took Sunday off. Even though I don't believe in getting up before noon, I worked late Saturday night, went by the store, then made it home close to 1 am, finally made it to bed just before 3 am and was up around 8 am, on Sunday morning, for church. A friend came over after church to do some annual maintenance on the ac to the house. Cool and breezy here. Lots of snow in Northern Arizona. More of that dang rain is predicted for Monday. Tornadoes back home in Georgia. And Sadie's good. She's roaming free outside of the corral. Hoping to get her butt put back up, soon. Just has to stop raining and dry up some. Leaving lots of love and a vote.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well today was like a mixed bag of tricks weather wise for sure. Went to feed, foggy, still in barn and it clears off with blue skies and sunshine! Finishing up and away goes the sun, in moves the clouds and misty rain all day! All in less than 45 minutes! But I did get the indoor dragged with the big tractor. Then lunged Paige and did showmanship, heated up two buckets of hot water and washed her tail, and a complete shave for her. Indy got lunged and a shave. Bullseye got to free play. Just watched the Packers get their butts kicked big time! Sure hope that the Steelers can beat the Patriots! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Wow, total overreaction to the shed blade, huh? Thats just so weird. She doesn't have a handicap of some sort does she, like partial blindness or hearing loss, though you'd think that would affect her riding too.
We wound up getting 1.25 inches yesterday and it sounds like we got some more overnight. So grateful. I didn't get to ride, of course, but I had fun taking pics of the horses playing after it quit. Even little Cinni was running around a bit. She has a really big trot when she wants to.
Well, hope you have a quiet and relaxing Sunday.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well, even though it got up to about 46 F degrees today, the fog was thick enough to cut with a knife! Didn't get to work the horses at all. Had that Seminar to go it. Very interesting. The system used is Bemer Veterinary Liner for the horse. And Bemer System for the human. It's a magnetic system. Which I'm familiar with in other products. He did two horses at Kate's barn and 4 humans. I was one of the humans. The horse system is a blanket, not a full sheet however and a separate band type thing that can be put on the neck, head, legs and hocks. As for the human one, it's a full blanket you sit in a recliner chair and they have a long band type and a round type for other direct areas to target. I did the entire body and the knees and then my deltoid muscle that's acting up. After 20 minutes I was in la la land! Still over 6 hours later feeling relaxed and pain free! But the catch, very expensive! Too costly for me to purchase either one! But since this fella lives just 30 minutes away, I can go to him or he can come to me for a treatment. Treatments right now are $25 a session. That's doable! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

That's so weird that Sunset rides good but acts so nervous in the ground. It'll be great to be able to lead, brush, and do groundwork now that you have her halter on. Hoping her progress and trust really takes off from this point. Sounds like you're having alot of fun with her.
Looks like we may get more rain today. Gotta zip out and give them their hay before it starts. Hope you have a great Saturday

Hi Cheryl, that's great that Sunset is doing well with the halter now :) so glad to hear you've made progress. We are still getting lots of rain. We had rain pretty bad last night and all through noon today. Then we have a break til Sunday. Sunday-Tuesday is a really bad storm though :( Voted. XOXO Danya and Koot

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well the rain has held off till late this afternoon. YAY, so I got them to the indoor without any of us getting soak n wet! Paige go lunged in the bitting rig and then a few minutes of showmanship. Indy and Bully got to free run. Everyone got a good spa day too! Then it was shower and rest for me. With the temps being in the 40's during the day, my sinuses aren't really acting up. I'm happy about that! Yay, Indy didn't use poo for a pillow last night! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Wow, sounds like a big step yesterday, good job. Love hearing about your training sessions with her and your progress.
Don't know where my day went yesterday. Didn't get the chicken coop cleaned or any rides in. Errands, a little cleaning, a little homeschooling, and a guy came to fix the gas logs in the fireplace. But I was kinda bummed about not riding.
We're getting a little rain this am, then I think it'll clear out. We still need it badly, so I'm happy to hear it on the roof. Off to work. Hope you have a great friday at the barn.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well another overcast cloudy day, but at least got to 42 F degrees. Filled my several boxes in the garage with firewood. Since rain is predicted for all day Friday! Got some hay to the barn too! Lunged Paige and did showmanship practice again. Indy got to free play, but wouldn't leave me, I had a peppermint in my mouth and he thought he could kiss me for it! And he once again used a pile of poo for a pillow! Think I might just buy him a real pillow and be done with it. LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hope the breakaway halter helps you get to the next level with Sunset. Or you could if the weather would ever cooperate, huh?
Good job catching the virus. Tech support and all seems like it always takes forever, but at least you saved your computer. Ours is still down, I'm starting to fear the same thing has happened to it. Hoping my son will have time to fiddle with it soon and give a verdict. Of course, our free tech support warrenty has expired.
Our warm morning turned in to a sunny warm day, up to 80. It was so surreal, like we had slipped into a coma and woke up in april. I kept looking for easter things at the grocery store, lol.
I did get to ride Allie yesterday and it's dry enough to safely work on loping. She threw a big toddler tantrum about steering at the lope so we worked on that a while and ended on a better note. Also practiced a few steps of sidepassing down the fence and backing. She's getting better and better at those. Overall, a good ride.
Well, hope you have a great thur. Take care.

A heavy rain storm is predicted for Thursday through Saturday. My hay shed's developed a leak, so I put a tarp over the roof of it. I hope there aren't any winds. Going to pick up an extra corral panel, or 2, when I can. At least Sadie will be happy. She'll get to roam the back of the property. Have and awesome day. Love and a vote.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Oh No, glad that tech support was able to fix the virus before it did any major damage. Do you have a virus protection through your provider? Like mine comes from my phone company that my modem and air time is from. Well a little drizzle on and off, but the temps got up to 40F degrees, so the ice and snow melted off! Did get everyone to the indoor for some work! Other than that, it was a house day for me and Honey. Mo's hanging out in the barn and still not going near the door looking to escape! LOL!

You must have gave Rocky vote 4,000 because Fancy/Pony Jack gave 4,001 after you! We had some freezing rain last night, but not too bad. Just have to watch out for sidewalks, steps, driveway, side roads. But now temps up, so everything melted. Have a good Wednesday. Rocky doing great still on the Senior feed, so I am happy!

Sounds like a lot if folks all over are getting rain, even up north. It's a whopping 63 here this am at sunrise, can't believe it. Feels like April rather than January. Dee started shedding yesterday, she's about 3 weeks earlier than usual.
We had overcast all day, no rain. Didn't ever get any horse time, got hung up doing percents in math. On a good note, did get time to feed in the evening because the doctor's office wanted more money up front than she had, so we came home earlier than expected. I generally try to leave the late afternoons free so I can feed and make supper. Will try again for horse time today, depends on homeschool and I need to do grocery shopping.
Well, that's a lot of words to say that not much is going on, lol. Hope your wed is a good one.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well not much got done today! Did decided to go grocery shopping today cause of the rains! Got home and my hayman had been here took out a load of that bad weedy, dusty, smelly hay. But they forced the big door shut and bent a piece of metal on the bottom track! I couldn't shut it all the way or re-open it! And of course by then it was raining hard! Hack saw to the rescue! Didn't need that 1 by 1.5 inch of metal anyhow! LOL! Then of course the rains really got heavy, so it was just give them lunch and fresh water and forget about dragging them to the indoor. They were all nice and content in the barn. Tomorrow's another day of possibly more rain! We'll see what gets done! I really don't want these sinuses acting up and me getting sick again! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Wow, a skunk and 2 mice! Rackin em up. Skunks must enter their breeding season in feb/March cause you sure smell them everywhere about then, ugh.
So relieved that the bad storms missed you. That's a lot of rain in one night though.
Glad Sunset is warming up to you. Nothing like food to change a horse's mind, lol. Shhh, don't tell Cisco that he's missing out on lunch.
I've got to take my sister in law to the doctor's this afternoon, so if I do anything horey, it'll have to be this morning. Also need to clean the chicken coop. And the house, but I doubt that'll get done, lol. Hope you have a great tuesday.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well when my equine dentist says 9:30 am I'll be there, he wasn't kidding. Right on the dot of 9:30 am! Paige and Indy were good to do and their teeth weren't that bad at all. Bullseye was his usual stinker self! Only thing he hates in life, having his teeth done! When Paul finished up, I brought Honey out to meet him. At first she barked and wouldn't go near him. 5 minutes later she was sniffing him and then eating doggie cookies from him. She's really coming along great! Didn't get much done, as I started with another sinus headache again today! GEEZZZ! This cold just kills my sinuses! And now tomorrow a freezing sleet and rain forecast! Oh well, just have to wait and see. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Friends from the Pacific Northwest, what a winter we are having, there's been snow on the ground since early Dec, and it still snows on and off, weve had almost 5 feet of snow, it has settled to 18 inches now, and we are in for a big warm rain towards the middle of the week, kinda nervous its gonna be a huge mess, Lilly and the Goat boys said they are done with winter, hahah I still manage to get them out for a walk just about everyday but it is only down our plowed driveway , Lilly has made lots of snow angels the temperature for the last three weeks has not gotten over 25* usually we hang around 19* this winter is really wearing me out packing water, we froze up for 4 days and had to use snow and snow melt, now that was a challenge, the barnyard and I are ready for some fun warmth and riding time, God Speed to everyone, love Suz, Lilly and the Goat Boys

Come visit me, Lilly.
