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.

Rocky is a "Medicine Hat" paint horse. Medicine Hat is the name applied to horses exhibiting a unique and rare pattern of color. Being mostly white in body, Medicine Hats have color on their ears and top of the head, which resembles a bonnet or hat. Color on the chest is termed a shield. Medicine Hats often have pink muzzles, and those with one or more blue eyes were especially prized.
Medicine horses blue eyes were often called Sky-eyes or Heaven-eyes and added to the mystique which surrounded them.

If you are still not feeling good in the morning, just crawl back into bed, and stay warm and sleep until noon.
The nears Woodwill, or Big Br/Sisters is over an hour away. Connections is so short of help/volunteers so clothing can not be brought in until January.
Eye dr. appointment yesterday. Sorry, could not get on computer last night, had my eyes dilated and could not stand the bright lights. I need glasses for distance, so I picked a dark purple colored ones, of course I can always blame it on my eyes being goofy, if I do not like them.
Still cold but no winds so that is good. Few more inches of snow. Moved Mary's chickens out of the little room inside the coop, put her hens in with mine, and her two roosters in where the goat was. "was" going to let the rabbits (girls) loose inside the little room, but mine started fighting, so now one is loose and one in the cage, at least there is better lighting instead of having it half dark. Snow is covering the sky-lights, in the back of the shed.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Well it was another cold one and nasty overcast with some snow this afternoon! That's 4 days out of 7! I'm really sick of this! My hay man came with 50 bales for the hay barn, yay! Still need about close to 200 to get through till June's second cut grass mix they like. He's got plenty, don't worry he said. Got them lunged and then gave lunch. It was crock pot Chicken N Dumplings again, as I had half a stack of celery left and extra soup mixes for it. Yum, was nice and warm on a cold day! Honey played in the back yard in the snow, she really likes it! Glad that one of us does! LOL! Marion and the blondes.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Oh No, the dreaded winter cold! You must have it bad if you didn't go to work a couple of days! Please take care of yourself and get better! Well depending on the weather channel this morning, woke up to anywhere's between 07 and 10 degrees! Didn't get above 22 with light snow all afternoon! They salted the road twice already! Needless to say, other than a trip to the Post Office to mail back the blanket, did nothing! Still frozen from being out for like 4 hours yesterday! Just can't take the cold temps anymore! And to think, I used to ski all day long in that cold! I must have been either young or nuts! LOL! So the kids got hay and fresh water for lunch and didn't care about being in today.

Hope you get over your cold soon, and start feeling better. I hate being chilled, and this yr our house is better than last yr, but still not warm, South wind makes the house cold.
It snowed all day yesterday, and all day today, but not hard. I heard up to 10 inch, but I think we got 7-8, light and fuffy. Got plowed out last night. Today we went an picked up some old hay at Jennifer's barn and took it up to Phillips for an old guy's water system, same guy that Joe brings down for Thanksgiving dinner.
Did a bit of cleaning up today, trying to find a way to the couch. :)
Right now I have 5 giant black bags of clothes to take to Connections,(sort of like GoodWill), and they are not taking anything until sometime in January. So started going threw some of it, found home for most of the men's jeans, vest type jackets on their way to Washington DC, (my niece teaches low income kids, and will find homes for these jackets and vest), sweatshirts, and hoodies are going the opposite direction, but soon I will have only the summer items left.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. So how much snow did you get overnight? Well woke up to 3 inches of that white stuff! But soft and fluffy at least! High today was a mere 22 degrees! Got the driveway all plowed out. Then got Paige and went to the indoor, she was a good girl. After I lunged her, I turned her loose to play, nope! She has no idea of how to run and play. Just hangs with me or follows me around! Indy was next, he was a gentlemen walking there, as yesterday in his stall he was a little full of himself. I lunged him, I could tell he wanted to run and buck and I didn't need him hurting himself. Bullseye got turned out in the pasture in hopes he'd roll and clean himself up! He insists on laying in his pee, his gaskins look like heck! Brought him in and then gave Hay and fresh water to them. Honey then got to run and play in the snow in the backyard. She's so funny! After that I hit Wally World for grocery shopping, Staples and then Lowe's up there. YAY they got in the 8 foot lights for the horse barn! And later I called Big Dee's about the blanket! YAY they will exchange it, even though I brought it a little over a year ago. All tags are on it yet. Just send it back and then they'll send out a size smaller! YAY! Love Big Dee's!

Wish we could share some heat with you and you could share some snow with California. A national weather-sharing program, lol.
My adventures yesterday were of the plumbing variety, not really the kind of adventures you want. Long story short, the trench cut from the barn to the house for the solar cable cut the main water pipe and the septic pipe. The septic guys also cut the water pipe (in a different spot) and had to pump out the tank again (just done last year- resulted in a loonnngggg talk with Madison about her lavish use of toilet paper!). Oi! Fortunately, I was able to unwind with a bareback ride on BJ before embarking on 4 hrs of math help with Madison last night. Today, it's the dentist for a cracked tooth and letting electricians into my nasty house I just can't seem to find time to clean (imagine that). But the horses are all fat and fuzzy and doing well.

Seen some pictures of your weather, tonight on the new. Looks just like ours.
I will trade you weather, but I am afraid Marion and I would have to wrestle for it....I would put Dominic in my place...Ha ha. (This was a note to Allie's Mom). We have about 9 inches of new snow, it was so pretty outside today. Snowed all day long. Temps were not out of the teens usually around 12. Some windy, but with this fresh snow horses were running around, and making snow angels or sometype of angels.
Goats do not need blankets, they have long hair and Cindy Lou is fat, well pleasing plump. My horses do not need blankets either. They have long hair, and "lots of padding".
Made some molasses cookies this afternoon, and a raspberry tort, with left over jam. Taste good or maybe I am still hungry.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Well what a cold snap has hit us! With the windchill it was like 06 F degrees! Got up to about 24 for the high, but chill factor still at 10 degrees! So windy! Even Indy was a little spooky when I went to get him out of the barn, so he backed up and stayed inside! He didn't want out! Smart horse! So Hay and fresh water for them for lunch! Honey and I took a ride to Staples and Lowe's for a couple of things. Struck out at both places! Seriously, you would think Lowe's would have 8 foot florescent bulbs in stock! NOPE! That's 2 different Lowe's stores in less than 10 days and no 8 footers! What gives guys! Well at least Honey enjoyed her trip in the truck! Now they are talking possible 2 or 3 inches of snow over night into early morning hours! Lovely! NOT! Marion and the blondes.

Glad you got home safely from the nursing home. Will they have the roads plowed off soon?
We hit almost 60 yesterday (forecast was for 45, they don't usually miss it THAT much) but pretty windy. I didn't get time to horse, but I did get groceries and a couple Christmas presents bought.
Well, hope you have a great wednesday.

Went to Phillips, (23 miles from Kennan, where Dominic lives) Pick n Save had sugar(s), ch. chips, and baking goodies on sale for 99 cents, last day so figured I should go. After we got home around 10, I started washing jars up because last night Mike brought up the last of the raspberries to make jam. About the same as last time 16 jars, but some of them are quart jars. Next year I hope berries do not do so good. Black walnuts to were over produced, I have so many of them to crack yet.
Cindy Lou likes being with the geese/duck and does not call out so much. I hope it is warm enough for her.
Tomorrow is suppose to be the start of a slow warm up. This morning it was -3 but hardly any wind while I was doing chores, it got sunny late in the afternoon.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Well had a skip of snow last night, but all rain today! High got to 39 and now it's dropping like a lead balloon! Going down to about 18 over night with the highs tomorrow in the low 20's! Not happy about that at all! Winds are howling right now! Kids didn't get out. Made it a spa day and Indy got his heavy duty belly band blanket on. I tried one that I brought last year for Paige on her, and it's to big! It's a really nice 400 gram heavy weight with the belly band! In some blankets she wears a 78, or an 80, and even has an old 82 of H.T. that fits her! Just depends on the maker I guess! So she's in her med belly band with another med over top! Have to call tomorrow and see if Big Dee's will do anything for me! I'm a good customer of theirs! Marion and the blondes.

Topped out at 57 today, will be in the 70's tomorrow. Temps are just all over the place. Hard to stay mad at Lilly, even if she did trash 2 feed buckets. Was reading on the porch this afternoon when she came up to get scratches.

Snow is not too bad to drive in "if" you can see some path or tracks, but I have driven plenty of nights home from to work/or to work, with barely seeing the ditches. 30 miles of that is no fun, and did not even have a cell phone.
Very cold wind today, and cold snap is coming tonight and for the next few days. Highs in the low teens. Just watch those geese will be sitting out in the snow, instead of being inside with a foot of sawdust to warm their feet. and then the ducks think oh, that must be fun and sit right next to them.
Hope tomorrow the wind do not blow.

Yep roads were awful. Went to my niece recital on Saturday. Was nice when we went in and slippy when we came out. I was happy my nephew had picked me up. I know of your hills in Troy. They are treacherous. Now we are waiting for snow. I think you have sleet and snow. That is much worse. So hopefully they are wrong all the way around. Be safe. Vicki & Big Jax

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Yes, saw Blue's pictures on FB of him at the Nursing Home, he was a hit for sure! Little Saint Nick! Well sunny and only hit about 34 today! But it did melt off more, thank goodness! Just making room for tonight's into tomorrow! They are saying starting out as snow and then going to a wintry mix! Oh JOY! Well I felt like myself, so a lot got done and ready for a lost day tomorrow! Hay to the barn. Lot's of wood in boxes to the garage. I've gone through over a cord already burning! Lunged Paige and Indy. Hayed and watered them. Then Honey and I did get in about a mile walk, it was cold and a little windy, but we both bundled up for it! Marion and the blondes.

How much snow did you wind up with? Bet it's quite chilly. Yesterday was beautiful, very clear but only got up to the mid 40s (I know, that's not cold for you, but that's not very warm for a high down here, lol).
I was strating to feel as grumpy as the grinch (well, almost), so I did do a very short bareback ride on BJ, mainly to practice turns on the forehand without reins. I had an odd experience: there was a hawk just the other side of the fence pawing at something in the grass. We stopped and watched him for a while but he didn't fly away, so I hopped off and went to investigate, as much to make sure the hawk was okay as anything. He promptly flew away and I couldn't find anything in the grass except that the ground was churned up a little. I'm guessing maybe he was trying to get at a little mole or something underground. Never really seen one act like that before, especially with a human so close by watching.
Well, off to work this chilly morning. Hope you have a great monday.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Well made it to the party, after 4 tries to get back up my driveway! And that was after plowing it, but in 2 hours that I was home, it got covered with another inch or more of snow. And dually's are not good in snow going up hills! My road hadn't been plowed yet, so it was fun going that 6/10 of a mile to the highway! Lucky for me, it was done by the time I came home about 11:15 pm. Had a very good time at the party and ate way too much there too! Shot today! One event is enough for me usually, but two in one day, and driving over 120 miles total during a snow storm! I'm whipped! Couch day and trying to sleep and rest! Hopefully feel better tomorrow! Thank the Lord, only one more night out! Christmas Eve dinner with Kate & Eric and their family! Then I'm done! Not a party person or especially a night time person! Kids did fine all day in. We had sunshine for most of the day and temps hit the mid 30's, so a lot of the 4.5 inches of snow melted or compressed down! Cause I wasn't plowing again or snow blowing! LOL!

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. So are you getting the snow?? Well the snow started about 10 am. I did leave and go to the End of Life Celebration for my long time friend Rita. Only two of her daughters were there, Sandy just recently had a kidney transplant and is under doctors orders of no crowds. It was nice to see people I haven't seen in 40 years! Coming home the roads were really not that great! Got home before 4 pm, so started the tractor to plow the driveway, the 1 to 3 inches is really 4 inches and still coming down. And I need to get out in a little while for a XMAS party at Kate & Eric's farm. Roads were still being plowed and salted and it's supposed to stop about 6 pm. I'll be leaving about 6:30 and hopefully nice steady slow and easy go! Marion and the blondes.

WOW...we actually had a SNOW DAY yesterday!!! Can you believe it snowed in Louisiana?? Yes it was quite an experience for us. I think it was 8 years ago since our last snow, but then it was nothing like this one. Normally the snow would melt not long after it hit the ground. We still have snow on the ground today. Everyone was busy building snowmen and playing in the snow. Got some pics of the herd on this snow day, will post on Susie's page. Have a great weekend!

I usually get black too, my thinking is that I'd rather people see the horse, not the boots. But the colors are a lot of fun too.
Well, are you sitting down? We got snow yesterday! It snowed hard all afternoon, big fat beautiful flakes. It mostly melted as it came down, but we wound up with about an inch accumulation. Not only is it rare for us to get snow, it's even rarer to get it before Christmas. That'll be so good to break up our hard dry clay.
Hope you have a great weekend and stay warm.

We were suppose to have a high around 17-19, but I seen 21 this afternoon.
Remember all the raspberries Mike and I picked this summer, well I have 16 jars of raspberry jam sitting on the table now. Still have a few more ice cream pails full of frozen berries to do. Been making low sugar jam, but it makes such a small batch, so did double it twice, if that makes sense. 4 times the berries, like 8 cups at a time.
Tomorrow I should be getting the geese and ducks to care for. I had the pen all ready since she ask me about taking them in. Stay Warm tonight!!

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. I bet Blue and his girl friend had a blast running the farm while you fed last night! Looks like the snow will be heavier south and east of us! You too, maybe even by you just a dusting! We're in the 1 to 3 inches. Oh cold and nasty out today! Can tell that snow is on the way! YUK! So my Farrier calls at a little before 8 am to give me a heads up that could we change the time from 10 am to 1 pm, sure it's okay. So that gave me time to fill in the holes around the barn and indoor with the dirt from Kevin's. Then I lunge Paige, free lunged Indy and Bullseye. Sure enough 5 minutes to 1 pm here's JW! He said for the first time going barefoot, Paige's feet were in amazing good shape. Not one chip out of them, she's a lady, dainty mover! Indy's doing great, his side quarter crack is all gone now. And he couldn't believe what a gentleman Bullseye was to work on! That's my little donk! I then dragged the indoor while the tractor was still down there. Realized I was hungry, it was 3:30! So I went and got Honey and just let her run the back yard, she ran like the wind! Besides, it was so nasty and I already spent almost 4 hours out in it, I was a little chilled! Let's see what tomorrow brings! Besides snow! Marion and the blondes.

No I think we are good. If it does hit us, I don't think it will amount to much. At leased I hope so. LOL Quiet day here. Mended Jax's blanket. Looks like I need to start watching the sales.

Tues we had a record high o f 81, today we tied for a record low of 17 this AM. Chilly, but nice and sunny all day so not bad. Ordered a smaller blanket for Jazz today (and a pair of mudrucker shoes for myself) The blanket I used last night is really too big, plus one of the belly bands tore off during the night and I noticed when I put it on, it had several rips in the lining. Also visited the GoFund Me page for Four Winds Farm (they are taking in horses displaced by the fires in Ca.

What color are his new boots? BJ wears med, but Gracie and Allie wear smalls.
Are you getting much colder temps the last few days? Seems like a lot of people are. We even had a threat of snow today, but it went just north of us.
Sorry I didn't get on yesterday, I was off but hit the ground running. Not much going on, horse wise. We only got a quarter inch of rain the other night but its been overcast ever since. When I feed hay, I have to go spread it out in piles for them twice a day. I tried just putting a round bale out there for them to have free choice, but they can demolish it in 5 days, and I can't afford that, nor can I find that much hay to buy the last couple of years due to the drought.
Anyway, the horses are fine. I hope you have a great friday.

I bet Koot is sending all the winds from California your way. We have had a very windy cold day again. Was down to 4 before when I looked. Rabbits and chickens water freezes up so fast. Well, chickens water turns to slush. But rabbits at least have apples and carrots to eat with moisture in them. I give everyone water 2-3 times a day. New chickens and rabbits have seem to settle in, now Cindy Lou the goat, is a different matter. Wants to stand on the rabbit cages when I let her out, which is a No No.
Horses have the a tank heater so their water does not freeze. I remember what it was like carrying water out all day long to keep everyone watered. Seems like thats all I got done in one day. Before Mike retired, I did all the watering by hand, and carried water from the basement. At that time I had 12 head of horses and 4 steers. But some of the horses were babies, and in the back of the shed. Stay Warm!!

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Well at least the sun was out, but so did the winds come back! And of course, they said 41, well how does 36 sound! I would have loved to have been able to be wrong so much at my job and not get fired! LOL! So took the tractor over to Kevin's and got 1/2 a bucket of dirt. Will fill in tomorrow where needed to keep the snow out of the barn and indoor. Want to let is dry a little first, it was wet from the rain the other day. Got them lunged again. Then hay and fresh water for lunch. Honey and I got in a little over a mile walk, but we both were bundles up, she even had her coat on too! Got JW the Farrier coming in the morning, have to have him do Bullseye for me, can't handle doing the nippers yet with the wrist. So cheaper in the long run to have him do little Bully! Marion and the blondes.

Unbelievable, high of 38 and snow flurries today And Tues we were 81). Jazz has her blanket on (it's a bit big, evidently Bo was a bit longer bodied). Will measure her tomorrow for a new one. Piked up a load of alfalfa pellets this morning, only unloaded 1 bag, will do the rest tomorrow when it's warmer.

A Vote for You!!
Oh, that was a lovely complement for your daughter and Cowboy.
I bet she is still grinning "ear to ear".
I have not even thought about what to get everyone this yr. for Christmas. Have 3 more to buy for, but will likely just give $$$, as last yr. Everyone is working so and because there are more to buy for, will give a bit less. I put money in the grandkids account each month, and Dominic helps me here, so he always gets paid. In fact, he keeps his "piggy bank" here, so his Dad does not get into it.
I finally, got all my Christmas things down. Did have a few things put up in the bathroom, and kitchen windows, but it was items I found this summer/fall at Connections and a few garage sales. I decorate simple, with pine branches, pinecones, and natural things.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. I think that's a great idea, new SMB boots for Cowboy being he's doing those challenges. Well woke up to fog, and 37 degrees, it burned off and sunshine, high of 41 but with 9 mph steady winds. I went to the post office and mailed some important papers out. Then hit WalMart and made up my XMAS cards. Got home and went and Lunged Paige and did showmanship, she was so good! Indy got Lunged too. Then Bullseye got to run for a few minutes. Hayed and fresh water for them. Late lunch for me too, ate and the it was 3:45 and the sun going down and the winds picking up more, but Honey wanted her walk. So I bundled up and we did a little over 1/2 mile, maybe 3/4. Came in and made a big mug of hot cocoa! Marion and the blondes.

Hi! The winds are definitely causing smoke to be pushed around. It's starting to hit my office more and where I live. Winds are supposed to pick back up later tonight and tomorrow to about 50 mph so I'm a little worried about tonight with the fires possibly spreading, but Koot is ready to go if needed so there's that. Voted. XOXO Danya and Koot

Come visit me, Kootenai.

Glad the supplement seems to be helping him. High of 49, but no wind. I can do the low temps, but the wind just eats me up.

Nice pictures of Blue. I looked for pictures of your daughter and Cowboy. Only found the one from the first day. FB maybe is loading slow. I'm sure the sticky bun was more exciting then a carrot lol. Rocky was like thanks mom. Nothing really going on here. Did get some of the gifts for Christmas wrapped last night. Almost done. Yay. Have a great day. Vicki & Big Jax

Come visit me, Big Jax.
