How We Met

Must have been the blue eyes!
We were going to visit some friends and passed a farm with a sign "Horses for Sale". We just had to take a look! When we saw Rocky, that was it!

Rocky is our 1st horse and he's been so much fun over the years from my daughter trying to ride him in English beginner shows (jumping talent zero) to Western and trail riding for me, which he prefers! He's been in a parade once and given lots of pony rides over the years. Other various experience includes vaulting horse, Dress-up Halloween shows, fun shows, summer camp... We took him to several County fair western shows just for fun too.

Nowadays, semi-retired due to navicular issues. Light riding only on trail loop or in pasture.

Monday vote for you. Finished up in Wausau in good time. Farm & Fleet of course took the longest. Wonder why?? Did not get any thing other than critter feed, and a few things for cleaning....I thing I heard about Fall cleaning once. Thought I would give it a try, to see if I remember how to do it.

HI Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Well today kinda fell apart with all I had planned to do! Didn't ride cause I knew that Tim was supposed to be coming and we'd be de-cobbing the barn. Well half an hour before he's supposed to be here, he calls and has something wrong with the EGR Valve on the truck. No can come! Oh well, onto plan B! I dragged the indoor and then went and started to work on the outdoor arena. It has become grown over in grassy type weeds. I have my work cut out for me. Got about 1/4 of it done. Then turned out the horses, in sheets, since our weather finally turned to fall temps. I de-cobwebbed Paige's stall and along all the stall fronts. Honey and I went for our 2 mile walk and then home to watch Football, yep Giants sucked and lost and now the Jets are taking a beating too! Oh well! Marion and the blondes.

Saturday was a long work day. I'm only working weekends, for now, because work is slow, so Saturday was a blessing. Need to pick up some Freedom 45. The flies are awful. I feel bad for Tracy's burros. They're so wild, she can't do anything but feed and water them. Too wild to get close enough to to treat for flies. They'll come up to her for the animal crackers she buys them, but for nothing else. Glad Sadie's sociable. I'd be hurt if she didn't allow me to do things for her. She's such a brat but a good girl, too. She thinks a conversation is suppose to include her. Leaving lots of love and a vote from us.

HI Rocky, here's a vote for ya. I bet those pups were glad to see their mommy! Oh good news that you found the missing barn cat, and he'll be okay. Bet he's not happy wearing that collar! Good way to end the night, a trail ride! Well it was cool, only 50 this morning, but went up to 86 and the humidity got a little thick! I detailed and waxed Beast this morning. Then did some showmanship with Paige inside, it was sticky in there. Glad I wasn't riding. Went downtown for a few things, swear that the truck drives better when it's all shiny! LOL! Got home and turned them out. Took Honey for our 2 mile walk. Half way on the return part, that idiot kid two doors over started shooting skeet again! Honey was a wreck, not fun trying to walk a scared to death dog! Got to the house and the horses had been running up a storm from the shotgun fire! Both were dripping wet with sweat and I couldn't even bring them up to hose them off! They were still shooting and I know I would get trampled! If it happens again tomorrow, it's State Police time! Marion and the blondes.

Still raining on and off, lots of flood warnings out, but mostly to in the southern part of Wis. Trees are putting on their colorful leaves, and winds are really getting stronger, so they may not last long. October is the the big month for color, but we have had snow already in September, (not this yr yet).
We are starting to cut firewood, nothing major, because had to fix the chainsaw. Rain I enjoy, but hate the mud, clay mud is sticky and deep, so far, its been not too bad. We are waiting for it to dry out, so far has not happened all summer. Want to push dirty up against the barn to plug up some holes at the base of the cement blocks. Have some projects, like change the side door in the Menard shed, where the young birds are, plus hay, and hopefully a pen for ????

The last day of barn duty, huh? Blue is gonna miss it. Hope your daughter had a great time on her vacation.
It was even winder yesterday and all the horses were goosey, so I just did groundwork. Even then, she spooked and scooted around several times. You know how scary it is having all those crouching tigers stalking in the grass and trees, lol.
The Italian circus was fun. It was pretty small, maybe only 15 performers in all, but they were all amazing and the whole thing was quite entertaining. Madison was amazed at what they could do, especially the high wire routine (she hates hights).
Well, off to work. Hope you have a great friday.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. I bet you're happy she's coming home! LOL! Little less to worry about fitting into an already tight day! Another gorgeous day out today! Did get warmer, about 83 degrees, but no humidity really. Got Paige lunged and rode again. She was as soft as butter today! Did her 360's in place level headset off my legs only, backed the L beautifully too, and side passed so softly! We called it quits after like 20 minutes. I didn't even lope her, wanted her to know that it's not all hard work! Came up while she was on the wall and washed the Beast! Truck really needed it. Then went and turned them out. Paige got the front of the barn pasture, more grass there! She deserved it! Took Honey on our 2 mile walk then. Came home and then vacuumed out the truck, now tomorrow I'll wax it. That'll be done for the winter, or maybe one more time if Oct/Nov isn't to cold to wax. Or I'll drive it into the hay barn and do it in there! Marion and the blondes.

Allie did okay in the bigger area yesterday. It was a bit windy and she was kinda tight and fast. At one point, she spooked and took off. You can't turn or stop her in that situation, so I hung on and rubbed her neck and talked to her till she stopped. Sigh. At least she didn't buck. We finished the ride with tons of trotting till she got a little tired. I'm hoping today is better.
Well, hope you have a great thursday. Take care.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Well it was a busy work day today! Took some hay to the barn. Rode Paige, and she was light as a feather today! Amazing what a little A$$ kicking will do to make them remember you can do this! LOL! Mowed the entire lawn and then turned them out. Broke for lunch then. After I had a nice salad with all the fixin's, Honey and I headed out for our walk. Did close to 2 miles again today. I think that'll be our entire walk all the time. By then we're both out of steam and have our tongues hanging! LOL! Thinking tomorrow will be wash and detail the truck! Beast needs a good cleaning and maybe even a vacuuming!

Sadie has been here a bit over a week, seems like it has been longer. Mike takes her with him, when ever he is picking up Dominic, which that guy loves. She listens good,....so far as long as no cats are around. Angel doesn't run so he is no fun for Sadie. But the two cats from the rescue run, but I see they just hide and she gives up.
Fast voting so I can get a few more jobs done this morning. Going to rain the next few days, so what to get the garden veggies out. If it rains, then will work out in the shed picking up the mess that it is being coming with never putting things back and just adding more in the wrong place. I guess 99% are my projects that are not finished yet.

Had another good ride on Allie yesterday, so the roundpen came down and the riding ring is now split in half. We'll see if she can behave in a bigger space.
Hope you have a great hump-day.

I've kept my Manna Pro fly spray in my hay shed. I've had it for so long, summer heat, etc., I didn't think it would work, but When I sprayed Sadie with it, Monday, the fart'n flies went away. My friend, Tracy, has 2 burros that she adopted. They're wild. When I visited Saturday, the flies were attacking their eyes. So sad. She can't get near them to put on spray or fly masks. After Star went blind in both eyes from glaucoma, I'm careful to keep Sadie's protected with her fly mask. Tracy seems to have more flies at her place than I do. Going to leave lots of love and a vote.

Yes, still canning. Finish the last two batches last night instead of this morning. Have lots of tomatoes still in the garden, and have not checked the squash patches tooo many of them, along with the pumpkins. But I see some orange peeking threw the leaves. Along with the orange and red in the trees, fall is coming, with these cool nights and winds. Started getting firewood, already, but just here and there. We need a new chainsaw, so working on that too. Baby pigs have been separated from Moms, and do not want to breed either of these sows again, since they were not the best Moms nor producers. Should have gotten at least 7-8 baies from each, but more like 10-12 each, but thankful for the 6 we do have.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Oh I bet the kitties had a blast tearing it up running around the house! Well woke up to mist and light rain, but it stopped and kinda cleared off. But the humidity was horrible till later in the afternoon. Spent the night worrying about Paige from her being so upset with the damn kids shooting off 200 rounds of shotgun shells! Anyhow, Kevin came over and we got the Toro Snow Throwing running, took him about 15 minutes if that! It was clogged from the gas sitting in carb bowl, plus the throttle was gunked up too! We ran it for quite sometime to try and run the new fuel and additive through the system. He wants me to fire it up every weekend to run it clear now. Got the kids turned out all afternoon when the humidity dropped. They enjoyed the pasture time, I enjoyed watch my Giants win their Football Game. Marion and the blondes.

your trail ride sounds like fun, it has been awhile sense I have hauled out to ride the trails, I am hoping to this next week :) I am so excited to get off work today! It was so hot after work yesterday the feels like at our place was 106. Cliff got the place treated for army worms. Man we just can't afford to lose our grass, we need it for Deacon to graze. I will be off as you know for 2 weeks so I will be in touch some on HC and FB, have a wonderful day ♡

So glad you got that trail ride in and the weather was nice. It sounds fun. I really miss trail riding.
Had a good ride on Allie, kept it short and sweet, didn't even lope. I did take the bull whip out with me and cracked it off her back and twirled it overhead a bit. She was more worried about when we were going to lope. Went to a funeral in the afternoon, hunted around for a place to get gas so I can get to work today (seems there's a busted pipeline in Alabama affecting our gas prices and availability), and read more articles for continuing ed credits.
Well, better get a move on. Hope you have a great sunday.

What a great Vegas trip! Austin fell in love with The Hard Rock Cafe and Casino. No gambling, but was so excited about the displays. We had his birthday dinner at The HR Cafe, and he was introduce, by our server, to the patrons who sang Happy Birthday to him. It was a blessing to see him so excited. We went to Planet Hollywood, Bally's, The Flamingo and Caesar's Palace as well as The Hard Rock. Went by fast, of course. We got home around 7 pm tonight. I picked up a shift at work for Sunday. Back to the grind. Scruffy was happy to see us, my cats excited to go outside and Sadie acted like I hadn't left. Much to do. Love and a very blessed Saturday night vote. <3

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Well I had all the good intentions of riding today. But by 11 am I started to feel crappy! So laid down and fell asleep for a while. Woke up feeling a little better. Went and turned everyone out and then Honey and I did do our mile and a half walk. My knee is doing well with the Back On Track Brace on it. Got them in a couple of hours later and came in and watched college football, well fell asleep again. Guess I just needed a day of rest! We'll see how tomorrow goes! I know hopefully Kevin will be over in the morning and we'll take the snow thrower out and see about cleaning the carburetor that I gummed up over last winter! It got used once and I didn't shut the gas off or drain it thinking I would be using it again! Never did have to. So went I went to drain it and run it empty, it wouldn't start, fouled up! My Bad! Hopefully he can clean it and I don't have to take it back to the dealer and pay big bucks for my screw up! Marion and the blondes.

Not sure about the sale today....want to go, but anytime I take a day off, the fairies seem to take one too. Yesterday, I noticed the spiders started decorating for Halloween, spider webs in every room. The dust bunnies came out and really multiply, and Sadies's mess under the table got bigger. She seems to think, all cardboard boxes need to be tore into 1 inch x 1 inches or smaller.
Ponies did wonderful getting into the trailer, but I felt like a "Judes goat" leading them in. But their new home is so nice. They will have their own stalls, but for now the have a small pen, which will go into a bigger pasture, and 3 kids to love them. I brought everything I could think of that they might need, treats, apples, carrots, brushes, combs, extra halters, 3 new lead ropes, hoof pick, a few stuffed horses, books on ponies, and a few other horsey things. They showed us the other barn, where they had ducks and chickens, everything was so clean, and no mud. I think the ponies will love it there. But Mistit is still calling for them. So that part is so sad for me. I spent extra time with her last night after we got home.

Oh, hope you get to ride this weekend. Have to enjoy snow-free days while you have them,lol. My dogs have always been babies about their nails too. How did he do for his trim?
I got to ride Allie yesterday for the first time in over a week, and she did well. It was good to be back on her. I'll take the roundpen down as soon as I have time and use the panels to cut the riding ring in half. I'm hoping she can handle loping in a bigger area, but not too much bigger.
Well, hope you have a great saturday. Take care.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Hope you get that ride in over the weekend. I know around here it's rain on Sunday. So Blue don't like a pedi! I do Honey about every Sat or Sun, she just lays on the bed and let's me do her. She's really got some great qualities! What a day. Only 50 degrees when we went to feed and got to about 76 today with a nice breeze. Rode Paige, worked more on bending on the arc and put up some more poles for jog overs and a back up L shoot. Getting her to move those hind quarters over and then the front end, she's used to 360's on the hind end and side passing, but forgot about turns on the haunches! So it's reminder time. The filled a few holes around the indoor thanks to the ground hogs, only have one more on the hit list! LOL! Had some lunch and then turned them out for a long time. Honey and I went for another nice long walk, little over a mile this time. Working that knee of mine back up. Love the Back on Track knee brace, really supports it and is helping with the arthritis.

Aw, I can just see Blue's excitement about going to the barn. What dog doesn't love the barn, huh? Sorry work has been such a bugger the same week you're having to cover the barn.
I got home from all the running yesterday with enough time to ride Gracie. It's been a week since I've been able to ride and it sure was nice to get back on. Gracie is always such a honey, tries almost too hard to be good. She got some yard time in appreciation afterward. Hope to get Allie started again today.
It was a huge beautiful harvest moon coming up last night. Stayed out a bit just watching that.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Well at least it really cooled it down! That storm made the 11 pm news on all the channels. Did some major damage to trees across roads and power lines! Today's high was only 66 degrees, sure felt nice! Got a nice ride in on Paige and it was nice that we both weren't dripping wet with sweat! LOL! Then finished mowing that pasture, finally! Just about in time to start all over again! Had some lunch and then turned them out! They enjoyed not having to wear fly sheets! Honey and I took another walk, this time about a mile all total. Buy the time we were on our way back, I thought I was going to have to carry her! She was lagging a little, but there was slack in the leash, I keep her at no more than 4 feet of leash when walking. She heels at my left side very well with slack in it! For about a year and a half old, she's doing well for being a stray! Marion and the blondes.
