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).

thank goodness for helpful neighbors.
i had a great time at my sister's. we went to the beach a couple of times. in the early morning, they allow dogs to run off leash, so it was fun to go see the dogs running in the surf and digging in the sand. they really have a big time, you just have to smile for them. we went to a water park saturday night after it had gotten dark and cooled off, walked out onto a long pier and talked and caught up, watched people fishing. had a long talk at starbucks over coffee. took a nap or two. just had a really great time. it was hot though, high 90's with a heat index of over 105. it was good to get home and see the horses this evening though. my son and niece did a good job taking care of everything.
well, headed to bed. have a good night.

Come visit me, Allie, thanks everyone for June HOTM! & BJ and his mom,Gracie.

here's my news on Zortea. I've been sacking him out the past few days. Used a towel, saddle pad, lead rope, lariat and training stick. touched him all over his topline and beneath his belly too. picked out all his feet. he doesn't like to lift them quickly but I got it done slowly. he is terrified of fly spray so I have to spray a cloth then rub it over him, which is time consuming. we'll work on this as time allows. he's not super food motivated. when he's watching the object he won't be distracted by a carrot or cookie. he does move away from whiskey for long stretches now. before he was on his tail every time he moved. I can catch him in much quicker time. it's very humbling to earn the trust of a wary horse. it's been awhile since I've had to prove myself

I got out early and mowed and weedeated what I could. I had to run get a shower then the farrier came to trim Deacon. Once that was done I went to the grocery store got our food then I had to go pick up a few bales of hay. I finished around 12:15, that was all I could get done before the terrible heat sat in. I turned Deacy out to graze and sat in the shade and watched him while a nice breeze was blowing :) Have a wonderful weekend ♥

Spent time with the herd yesterday and today. Cleaned out and straightened the tack room. Got stung by a wasp while doing so. Worked Ace in the round pen and then let him walk on the walker. He did really good. Gave the horses their vaccination shots. They are all still clean from their last bath. All is going well. Enjoying my week away from work. Have a great weekend.

Gosh, it's so like any project to get delayed, cost more, and take longer than expected, but you don't think of your actual trip to get supplies to be a problem. Must have been a really long train, or was it dropping off/picking up new cars? Hope you had enough gas in the truck, and an empty enough bladder.
I hope to go visit my sister this weekend, so may be off line. She and her hubby bought a townhouse in Charleston down on the coast. I'm ready for some beach and shrimp time. Gonna go get my sister in law's grocery shopping done and then pick her up from the mental health facility today. She sounds good on the phone and they say she's ready to be released already.
Well, hope you have a great thursday. Don't get too hot doing that fencing. Take care.

So you'll be fencing and sweating right along with the horses. Tis the season.
I've been busy keeping stuff watered, it's turned so hot and dry. We've only had one tenth of an inch of rain this month, and that was on the 2nd. The critters are all drinking like crazy too, of course.
Turns out Madison has swimmers ear. I had no idea that could be so painful. She got some drops, which h already seem to be helping a little.
Almost got time to ride yesterday, but not quite. Oh well, maybe another day.
Hope you have a good hump-day.

Hi Cheryl & herd, the honeymoon was great! We went to Maui and did so many fun things, the road to Hana, hiking, snorkeling, swimming in waterfalls and all sorts of stuff, but we had some pool relaxing days too. The weather was also really great the entire time we were there so I can't complain :) Voted. XOXO Danya and Koot

Yeah, nothing like heat and humidity. We had a couple of nice days this past weekend, but the temps are climbing again as the week goes along.
Not much going on here. Looks like today will be on the road with grocery shopping and taking my daughter to the doctor's cause she's developed a bad earache, the kind that wakes you up in the middle of the night, poor baby. She's pitiful.
Well, hope you have a great tuesday. Take care.

It was suppose to be 120*, Monday, but only made it up to 116*. Cooling down to 112* and then, 110* later in the week. Suppose to be around 110* for the next 2 weeks. The air is hot. Thankful it's not humid, yet. Love to each of you and a vote.

Did Cisco see the vet Saturday? What did they say & do?

The new profile picture is of Whiskey and Smooch meeting through the fence! He is doing very well and the kids love him, so does Susan. Deacon would whinny here and there the 1st 2 days but sense then he has been fine. Of course he is getting 100% of my attention so he is eating that up. Cliff has been working on framing in the stall area to reinforce it. We were going to add some metal to the roof area but mother nature had a different plan for yesterday afternoon ~ yes the heavens opened up and we got hit by another storm that graced us with an 1" of rain. We did get the 2 panels plus the gate panel situated around the stall so Deacon now has afternoon & evening shade. Deacon welcomed the rain yesterday because it has been so hot here. He had a spa day Saturday and lots of grazing time in the yard. Yesterday he was groomed and turned out in the yard again. It has been to hot to ride. I hope everyone has a wonderful week ahead ♡

So sorry I haven't been on. HC was down, then I had long shifts at work, making it impossible to vote. The wind was so hot when I got off work, Sunday night, my eyes burned. I came home, watered some of my trees, filled Sadie's water and splashed her butt with the hose. I got a dirty look, lol. What a brat. She's doing well, drinking lots of water. Thankful the heat doesn't seem to bother her. I started her on psyllium pellets, again. I mixed them with carrots and apples. She'd eat them without a treat, but I love to spoil her. And yes, I pay for it. Lol. Love and a vote.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well I'm not liking these hot days at all! Today was like 90, so needless to say, horses didn't get turned out! I did get all the mowing finished in 3 days, so the place shouldn't be a hay field when I get home next Sunday night. Trailer is in place and half packed! Just need to put extra bedding and all their feed and hay in tomorrow. Then hit the road about noon time! Of course it's going to be another hot one! I don't envy them in that trailer! I lunged Paige and did showmanship. Indy got to free play. Then Honey and I went down about 3 pm and did hay and water. And by the way, Honey did a sit stay and watched me pick stalls, empty water buckets 70 feet from the barn and then I filled them and hayed the horses. She never moved! This little pup is so smart! Love her! Well, I won't be on again till next Monday! So take care, vote when you can for my herd and I'll try to check in on FB during the show. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Yes bathing four horses is a lot of work, but it's worth it when I get to see them in all their beauty. Today is my birthday (happy birthday to me)! I have to work the grave tonight but at least we get paid time and a half on our birthday. Then I'm off all next week...hooray! Have a blessed Sunday.

so the horses are liking their new treat and Jazz takes her meds tucked in one? yay!!! makes life easier. (did you call them squeezey buns?) what are they like?
well, on top of the busy week ive had, i spent friday afternoon and evening trying to help get my sister in law into a mental health facility. she's bipolar on top of being blind, and every now and then has an episode and winds up spending a couple of weeks at the facility. it's an hour and a half away, so i was glad she consented to go with her sister instead of me having to take her cause i had to be up at 4 the next morning for work. her daughter graduates college in 2 weeks, so i hope she's out and better by then. then yesterday was a long work day, home late, so i just got on HC briefly before going to bed.
Allie has been doing well, getting pretty darn soft in her face at a walk, so ive been adding in some short trotting too. but she gets worried and goes faster and faster again. not sure i should keep trotting short and mixed in with tons of walking, or if i should do a lot of trotting until she decides it's no big deal. any ideas? there's not much steering at the trot yet, so not sure how much obstacles will help.
well, off to church. hope you are having a great weekend. take care.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well it's hot and humid here too! So we're going to the indoor to work Honey, and she's off leash. She spots something out by the manure pit and takes off! Honey No! She stopped! Was about 40 feet from me by then. Said, Honey Come, she ran right back to me. Good Girl, treat for that. Then we worked in the indoor with some of the large doors open, more airflow that way. She never went near them! Now I'm getting Paige ready to lunge and ride, an hour earlier than normal time. Wanna beat the heat! Nope, my hay man that cuts my back field shows up to mow! Paige on the wall for 45 minutes. That field is right behind the indoor, don't want to be a dirt dart three days before a show! Got a good ride in then and some nice 360's out of her. We were both soak'n'wet in that hour! Turned them out about 4 pm, at least a little cooler and less bugs. I mowed the lawn around the house then. Supposed to be worse tomorrow. Probably will be hooking up to the trailer in the am and starting to load it up! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Well my horses had a Spa day yesterday! I bathed all four horses with their Cowboy Magic Rosewater shampoo (it smells so good). I conditioned and combed their manes and tails, then put them under their fans to dry. Then they were fed and let out to graze. They are all pretty again. But I would bet not for long. lol Have a great weekend!

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Yep, all channels were down, Horse, Small Animal and Dog Channel being worked on again. Hopefully all fixed now. Busy day. Hay to the barn, worked with Honey. Then lunged and rode Paige, working on refining those 360's. Sometimes she's like a reiner, and they are fast and low to the ground! Other times, I have to fight with her! UHG! Free lunged Indy and today he played with the purple cone! Then they all went out. I got to mow the middle sized two pastures! Got a lot to mow and get done by Sunday! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. Well rainy day! So did all my food shopping for the horse show and packed most of it in the trailer already. Then took Honey down the indoor for her lesson. Well there was a bird locked in overnight, and it was frantic! Honey didn't know what to make of it! Now she sees birds all the time outside, but not in her playpen! She wouldn't run and play, glued herself to my side! Just lunged Paige and practiced more of our showmanship patterns. Then groomed Indy real good. Trimmed up Bullseye hooves again, just needed a little touch up on his angles. By then it was almost 5 pm, late flake of hay and fresh water for lunch and then my lunch. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

AS you all know HC was not cooperating yesterday morning! Tuesday was wonderful. I enjoyed seeing Cheryl again and meeting Susan. Susan's rescue horse Zor is just beautiful too, I think he will be a good fit once they gain his trust. Had a ruff morning after discovering my trailer light adapter was missing so Cheryl had to run me to the store to buy another one! LOL the drive there to take Whiskey was beautiful as well,. Everything is so green and all the fields are full of corn and other crops. When we got back we went and ate lunch and she then went shopping at the bakery shop. Deacon watched the road and our trailer the rest of the day whinnying off and on. He was better yesterday. We continue to toss around idea's on how to build the stalls next to the tack room. Of course Deacon's should be ready this weekend like Sunday, I think my son Coleton will have to help though now that Cliff has a small gout problem that has flared up, we will see. I will help as well because I'm off the weekend. Saturday is a dedicated day to Deacon and everyone knows to leave me alone so I can pamper him with a good long bath and some light riding where its not muddy and no corn is growing! We are surrounded by corn fields right now-I will get a picture after his spa morning :) Have a wonderful day ♡

I'm sure meeting up with Sherry and Susan was a lot of fun. Wish I could've joined you. Made for a full day, huh?
Sorry I wasn't on yesterday. HC was acting up in the morning and I didn't get a chance to try again later. I had a great ride on Allie though. We did more tight circles, and also started riding toward a particular post, stopping at it to relax and flex, then heading off to another post on the other side of the riding ring. It encouraged her to stop at the fence, and it also seemed to relax her. Our straight lines need a lot of work though, lol. More like a drunk snake than a straight line. But I was real happy with her ride. I'm currently with a friend getting his back injected, and tonight is the last night of VBS, but I hope to ride again in between.

Not looking forward to the predicted 120* on Sunday, and it's not even summertime, yet. It's usually hotter here than in Phoenix. Keeping Sadie's water filled, as usual. She knows how to wet herself down when the temperature's from Hell hit. We have beautiful winters that make up for it. Lots of love and a vote.

Hi Cisco, here's a vote for ya. No horsey time today! Had a hearing test this morning, and the doctor was 30 minutes late getting there. So that right ear that had the major sinus infection and fluid still in it, still has fluid in it. Have to give the results to my doctor on the 29th when I got for my asthma check up and readings of all my blood work and physical from a few weeks ago. Then have to go back and have the right ear tested again on July 22nd! Stopped and did some errands and then got home about 2:30 pm. So just turned the horses out for a couple of hours, of course now we're back to high 80's and a very slight breeze. Tomorrow rain, so I'll ride then. In the indoor of course.

Gosh, what a storm you had! That's an incredible amount of rain for a thunderstorm, and to go without power for that long, glad it wasn't any longer, like all night.
Rode Allie again yesterday and we did tight little turns to emphasize giving and bending, and she softened with those. We also did a couple little trots, then one rein stops and she did okay, though that made her want to get a little excited and go faster again, but bending relaxed her. It's work today and that mandatory class tomorrow, but I may be able to ride in the morning.
Well, better get a move on and get ready for work. Have a great tuesday.
