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.

Burr, we have it cold this morning...-18 below, with a small wind, but even that make it so much colder. Little ones were so glad to get nice warm water to drink. When the water buckets freeze over night, they are plenty eager to drink, after getting their grain. Next week, I see they are calling for rain, I would rather have snow this time of year. Hope, the weather mane is wrong. Have to go to a birthday party about 50 miles from here this afternoon. Surprise party for hubby's friend, so we will miss Mass this afternoon. Stay warm!!

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Well 8 degrees at 7 am was not fun going to the barn. High today was 21 with a mild breeze. But the worst to come! Temps falling tonight and continuing to fall till Sunday night! By Sat night we'll be at a real deal of minus 10 with a wind chill of as low as -25 degrees! I took a slinky hood over for Paige, even though when Marissa leaves the barn the temps in side at that point could be 60 degrees. She said it'll probably bottom out to about 40 or so. My barn with the heater this morning was 32 degrees, Indy was happy to have his Neck Hood on. Paige had another really good day today with Marissa. Tomorrow we're doing a showmanship clinic for a while, then breaking for out to ladies lunch, then back and have a mock show in showmanship with several patterns to work. Should be fun, even though the indoor will probably only be about 20 degrees. Marion and the blondes.

Another vote from Whisper and the little herd. Our sunny sky are very misleading, because once I went outside it is bitterly cold with those sharp winds. But at least it is above zero, well, 1 is still above.

Whisper and the little herd are sending you a vote to share with your friends. A very cold vote indeed, probably still has ice icicles hanging on it. Was passed -12 this morning, burr I hate days like this, because I feel all the animals are cold too, but no one seems cold, all have fuzzy wuzzy on. Or not sure what feathers would be called.

Stopping by with a spring like Wednesday afternoon vote! The farrier came out today a new one since our old one never got back with us. Copper did great! He usually acts up once or so each visit but for the past few he has been doing great! We are gonna haul him and Darby out to our land tomorrow and ride them for a few hours. Seventeen and a half acres to ride all over! I can't wait! I practiced loading him in the trailer this afternoon he finally went in after about ten minutes or so. He's pretty hard headed but I'm more! LOL! Really proud of my boy. Then Darby and him got grazed for half an hour and then they were groomed. Love and a vote! ~Brooke and Copper~

Ash Wednesday, so this is the start of the Easter and Spring Season. Have to run 33 miles one way to the library to find ta papers for my Grandson tax work. I am cheaper than H&R Block, and he does not have much income. Clod and windy today. -10 sharp winds this morning, so will leave the little ones in for a bit.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Yep, us too, about an inch and a half, melted off, more coming tonight. Maybe another inch or so. And yes, starting Fri night, here comes the artic air! What a ride Marissa had on Paige today! She was like, this mare is on, just so soft and attentive to me! Of course she was a nut case on the lunge line for me! But no exercise Sun or Mon, and they were doing major work right outside the indoor arena on a trailer. Compressors going, welding machines, doors banging, oh yeah it was fun. After about 20 minutes of Paige going WTH was that! She finally settled into work on the line. Marissa's like, maybe I'll have them over everyday! LOL! But they are coming back tomorrow to do the other side of the trailer all the window hinges! Marion and the blondes.

it was overcast, chilly, and windy today, and we even saw 4 or 5 snowflakes whirling around. the horses were full of themselves, running and bucking out in the pasture like wild things. so i contented myself with just doing BJs groundwork. he seems to be getting stronger, though he still gets his back feet tangled up sometimes. his groundwork skills are getting pretty impressive with all this practice.
i hope you had a good tuesday with a little horse time as well. take care.

Well, yesterday, we got a "peek" at spring, and then over night Mother Nature just covered it all up with 3-4 inches of snow and drifting too. For some reason, Mother Nature seems to like to torment us, but at least it's not muddy out yet. Temps this week, are going to be low, with highs just over 0. What's that old saying "Put another log on the fire". Whisper and the little herd are sending you a morning vote.

Sorry I'm on late. I had a full day, but fun. My sister and brother in law came up this morning to visit their daughter, my niece. We had a long breakfast visit, and then I had volunteered to help man the Marsh Tacky booth at the SC horse expo this afternoon. There were 2 Tackies there, and a lot of Tacky friends, new and old. One of them had an equine chiropracter look at her mare. It was interesting to watch one at work.
I got home with just enough daylight to ride Allie and work BJ. For some reason, when I asked for a lope, Allie kinda hit a fast lope and kept going and going and going. She never did slow down on her own, I had to stop her. It was kinda fun.
Well, it's past my bedtime. Hope you have a good night.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya . What a busy day today! Got Indy free lunged and played with him. Then free lunged Bullseye, I really have to take a video of him lungeing, he stays right around me in a circle, like in an invisible round pen! LOL! Then went over to Marissa's. Got Paige groomed and saddled up and went and lunged her. Marissa came back from another horse and bridled Paige up. I couldn't believe how awesome Paige was today! Like she never left her training mode! Marissa even did the baby cross rail jump with her, just to give Paige something else new to do. Did lot's of little things with her and really mixed up all the work. Got off and told her whoa, walked over about 6 feet from me and said, Paige come, mare does a 90 degree turn and starts to slowly walk over, you can see she's thinking, who too? Marissa says you better come to the right person! And she went right to Marissa! Got lots of pats on the neck. After cooling down on the wall, she got a scoop of her Alfa-Lox and a flake of her 50/50 alfalfa hay. She was a really good girl. Tomorrow I'll be leaving the farm my 1 pm for our Awards Banquet Dinner, I can't wait. Be home just in time to feed by 7 pm. Like the idea of the afternoon Banquet better. Marion and the blondes.

Just trying to get a few more votes in this morning. Nice outside this morning, I think it was 17 when I did chores, up to 23 now. Light snow, a inch or so, each night, but its not enough to cover up my trail across the lawn to the barn/shed. I wish I had a real barn, but the Menard shed is divided into a shop, and back part I have hay, a tack room, feed room, which is now filled with "stuff". Pen for the babies, Pickles and Paisley, plus a pen for the noisey guineas hens. Hope your weekend is great.

Buddy Guy here I come...
So after weeks of scouring the Buddy Guy website and checking the Canadian appearances, remember I was hoping he would add London. He didn't, but one day about a week ago I saw a small blurb that said Buddy Guy in Kitchener Ontario, I thought it must have been a previous show, but I checked it out and sure enough he is only playing two Canadian stops on this tour, Toronto and Kitchener. Kitchener is pretty close to us, but when I went to the Box Office there were only "nose bleed" seats left. I was so upset that this show was not on the Official buddy Guy website and all the great seats were sold already. Remember no one has worse luck than me...Then I saw an ad for two front row seats for re sale. David warned me that ticket fraud is a big deal, so be very careful. Long story short, turns out the man that purchased these tickets is also a huge fan, however, he has a vacation conflict for the day of the show, he wasn't sure they would be back in time so he decided to sell the tickets. He wanted the same as he paid, not looking to make a profit. I contacted the Box Office to verify that these were in fact legitimate seats and after they confirmed it, I said SOLD. April 20, Centre in the Square Kitchener Ontario. early retirement present for me. I posted a pic of the theatre, and the two yellow dots are our seats. I'm so excited. Have a great weekend.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Well we got very very lucky in the snow department this morning. NOTHING! A few flurries and not even sticking to the ground. Of course just 15 miles away, they got like 4 inches! And the further south even more! Yep you folks can have it for a change! Got a text from Marissa to come over an hour earlier today. No problem. But of course Paige had other ideas! But it was cold and very windy, her indoor makes more noise than mine ever could. So poor Paige was a little up. But Marissa still got some things accomplished. Hopefully tomorrow will be better. Indy got play time when I got home. He loves his free run time. Marion and the blondes.

One is of her daughter, 5 riding Kisses. Stephanie, said Kisses learned to just except a rider, and saddle that riding is just second nature to Kisses.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Glad that Susie Q and Rocky got a long. My horses love Harley! What a gorgeous day out today. Sunny and mid 40's! Wed rain all day, but the mid 50's before returning to more colder temps. Well today was Paige's first day of Marissa riding her since our last show. She's impressed with some things I've been working with and it's a big improvement, but I did let her get a little flat on her top line. So Wed I get a lesson in lifting and elevating that neck to round out the back. Of course this will be the opposite of my hands down and not above the horn. I'll be picking up on her to lift her. But Marissa said that what I worked on came along good. My steering off my leg and keeping my hand down and quiet! Always learning, it you're not, then you're not riding right! Indy gets a work out Wed also, before I go over there. Marion and the blondes.

The wind is horrible and cold. Rained last night. Sadie's corral is flooded, again. Rick's suppose to pick up my new corral panels today. Those panels will be connected on the west side at a slightly uphill angle. Should give her dryer space. Anxious to get the corral expanded, too. Have a wonderful Monday. Love and a vote.

IS IT SPRING YET???
Yesterday morning after their breakfast I put them out, it seemed to be going OK, but then the wind came up, it was stupid, both of them tearing around. There is still quite a bit of ice under the snow, so to be safe back inside, after lunch the wind died down, the sun came out and it was quite mild, so out we went. Looks like today will be the same thing, rain moving in around lunch. Enjoy your day, one more closer to spring...Love Donna Lee

finally a break from the snow...
It has been a tough week, I'm back in physio for my shoulder, work related however work will not acknowledge that because I had surgery so it is considered a pre existing injury, never thought after 15 years of loyal service I'd be treated this way, I'm not asking for restrictions, just admit that it is due to repetitive work...I'll make it thru the last 7 months, if it kills me. I guess it is all about the bottom line to a company the size of Maple Leaf Foods.
The horses are doing well, it has been a crazy winter for them, so much ice, they deal well with being left in for safety, harder on me than them, we left a vote, have a great weekend, Love Donna Lee

Hi Rocky.
We ended up with more snow. That's kinda good so that I can still get some pictures of reindeer Cinnamon in the snow. lol

I've made lots of progress with Eli since he's been here (even though it feels as though I've done nothing to improve him). I've had him for almost 7 years now.
Today I will give an example of Eli's story continuing. Last night (this is why I couldn't blog everyone), after I got home from where I volunteer, I went to feed my own critters. After feeding sheep, cats, chickens, and heading over to the barn, I discovered Cinnamon had a bit of an attitude Thursday. I guess Eli tried to get in Cinnamon's food (like he so often tries to do) and she kicked him in the face (which she always tries to do, but most of the time misses him) and scraped hair and the top layer of skin off of his face above his left eye. Those two are still not getting along today. They are both acting moody. I discovered that cinnamon is "wormy" so the worms must be immune to the wormer. I'm going to maybe switch her to the Ivermectin paste to try. At least we know one of the reasons why she's been having a digestion problem (and been moody, what's new about that though!)
Today, also, I will answer some questions...
Why do we homeschool? Well, mainly because of bullying. I've never gone to a public school, but my friend from church who goes to the school we would've gone to had we not done homeschooled, is bullied all the time (a lot!). She was telling me about a fight that happened at her school last week. I am glad that we homeschool. The only thing is, there are still some bullies... they are my brothers haha.
We don't do a lot of stuff on the computer for homework. Just sometimes. We aren't geniuses, but being homeschooled definitely has its advantages. Most people act like we aren't socialized. I can say that definitely isn't true. Sure I don't talk to many people my age. I find it much easier to socialize with adults most times. In fact, all of my closest friends are 50-60 years older than me. One other advantage is I can go to a horse show and say it is a field trip! lol
So far, Eli has 280+ votes as of about 7:00 this morning. Later I'll try and get some pictures uploaded on Eli and Cinnamon's pages.

Come visit me, ~~HOTM and HOTD support/news page~, Cinnamon (270037) voting Lilly(268192) for HOTM & Eli(270057) Thanks for HOTM!.
