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.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Oh that's great that you got a ride in before the rains came in! I bet Blue was very happy to tag along with his girlfriend! LOL! Yep she had to rescue her own horse! She was paying board and supplying his feed and he wasn't getting it! The pasture was more of a dirt and weed thing and he never had much hay at all. Was left out in severe storms cause no ones never around the place. I know this for a fact as Honey and I walk by it all the time. And I have to pass it coming and going from my farm to the highway. Well rain and more rain this morning. Over an inch in the rain gauge when I emptied it at noontime. Did get Honey out for a walk around 11 am, street was dry. We got in almost 2 miles. Knew I couldn't work outside and get done what needed, so we had a nice long walk in 62F degree temps! It was nice. Indy got a full spa day for sure today. And I picked up the corners of his mats and cleaned out the pressed bedding that got under them was causing them to roll on the ends. Then decided to get another walk in with Honey, this time we did 1.5 miles, I was kinda dragging a little after wrestling with those heavy mats! LOL! Marion and the blondes.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Well no sun shine, but tons of humidity! Very little breeze too! But Honey and I did get our walk in this morning. Did 1.75 miles. Then just as I was turning out the boys, got a phone call to meet this young lady down the road at the old farm and help her rescue her own horse out of there! What a hell hole that place has become! He wouldn't load. There 90 minutes trying. Called Marissa and she said walk the horse down to my farm and she was sending over the troops to help. Jill and Laura who share Paige came and brought Dominica with them. Laura had him on in about 10 minutes. Told her the walk down made him tired and I did the prep work! We all laughed. When the left I brought the boys in and then mowed out behind the indoor and by the manure pile. But it was wet yet from last nights rain. So I didn't even try to mow those two pastures. Probably have to wait till Wed now, rains tonight and all day tomorrow! Marion and the blondes.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Well it was hot and humid all day. But not as hot as it has been, but still very humid! Did get an early morning 1.5 mile walk in with Honey. Then mowed the lawn around the house. Headed over to ride Paige. Lesson inside, could have ridden outside, but the bugs Heather said were bad. So I opted for the indoor. And of course either having a few days off from the heat, or just being a marish day, she gave me some grief! Didn't want to work! Like nope, we're doing it my way, no Paige you're doing it the correct way. So 25 minutes of lot's of thumping with my spurs to keep her moving correct! Hopefully she won't be like that for Laura tomorrow! And it's supposed to be a little cooler and less humidity then too! So after our ride, she got hosed off, I could have used it too! LOL! Marion and the blondes.

I'm hoping to get some chores knocked out today. It's supposed to hit high 90s with a feels like well over 100 for a few days, so I'll probably be doing alot of hosing off but no riding.

You will have to promise to paint his toenails a pretty shade of blue, if he will sit still.
Sorry, I have not written many comments lately. Just been busy. Glad to hear you are getting some time with the horses even if it is short. Been hot here and dry, but in the southern part of Wisconsin they have floods, Mother Nature just does not want to share, gives it all or nothing. Gardens weeds are growing "overtime", hard for me to keep up. Dominic has been here last few days, and I forgot how much growing boys can eat. But he works hard, just helping me out. Trimming trees, and of course always cleaning or remaking something. Going threw tack to take to the swap, now with out the rescues babys, I use to have, I certainly do not need 10 leather halters, I always sent horses to their new home with a rope, a halter and a leather halter too. If they were kids, then a book about horses, sometimes stuffed toy horses, a bucket of brushes, and things the horse would need. Getting dark and still need to count the guinea hens and lock them up. Babies are all growing and eating good. Have two hens that each hatched out 5 keets and I did give them some chicks too. Plus I have 5 of each in the house, still in MaMa grade, so need the light yet, plus incubators are full.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. So it started out cooler and with a nice breeze. Took Honey on a two mile walk it was so nice! Got home and weed whacked all along the fence lines in the two medium pastures and the did the entire long front of the indoor. Was going to mow but that never happened! Did get the boys out for almost 3 hours. But by 2:30pm the breeze blew itself away and the humidity and flies came out! Dive bombers too! Indy's like hey mom, it's time for the barn and fans! Okay Indy here I come to save the day! LOL! Had to go to town on a couple of errands and it was 93 degrees down there and 89 up here when I climbed the mountain! Tomorrow's supposed to be less humidity and cooler temps! Sure hope so, I want to ride Paige! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Haha, ain't it the truth? I'd rather tackle the horses' hooves any day than trim the dog's nails.
Oh, wow, bet he was an odd boy if that rainbow stayed in his mane for a while.
Well, the truck was off getting an alignment and the a/c serviced, so I have an appt to take it to a mechanic on tue. Can't wait to see it and drive it. Only did a few minutes of light groundwork with Allie due to the heat. You know it's hot when Gracie is soaking wet; even Allie was sweating on her chest and shoulders a little.
Well, hope you have a great friday.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. That's good that he's used to being out at night time. Yeah with all the white, you have to worry about sunburn for sure on him! Oh yeah, the storms are a coming again, should be by you about the same time as us! You just know when you open the door to let the dog out at 7 am and you get hit with hot humid weather, you're in trouble! I did get Honey for a walk about 10 am, but we only went down the road in the shady areas! Got home and about 30 minutes later it hit me! Must have to just a little to hot and humid for me. Had the shakes and felt like I wanted to vomit! Force myself to drink a sports drink with electrolytes in it and it helped! Texted Marissa and she said riding lessons canceled, but come and do a little showmanship with Paige and we'll go over the show patters for the beginning of Aug. We did for about 15 minutes and I was soak n wet! Paige was dry and not panting like me! LOL! Then 5 of us went across the street to the Homestead Restaurant and enjoyed a nice luncheon! Felt good to sit in A/C and laugh about things! It was 92F when I left her farm with a humidity still at 100%, so the boys did not get out at all today! And don't ya know, about 6:30 here comes another major T-storm with super heavy rains! One inch in the gauge in a matter of 45 minutes! So sick of this rain, I'm sending it to you Buffy! LOL!

Yeah, seems like agility training would be fun, for dog and human.
Ohhhh, it was an old pic. He was pretty decked out, looked good. Time marches on, doesn't it?
Not much here. I had a ton of errands (the poor car did truck duty again, carried 8 ft boards-some stuck out of the window as before- and a lot of groceries home). Then I worked on the chickens' run, looking for and patching loose spots. By the afternoon, it was pretty hot so I didn't work Allie, but I did hose off Dee last night. Poor mare was still very sweaty at 8:30 at night. There's more to come, they say high 90s by the weekend.
Well, hope you have a great thursday and don't get too hot.

I know you guys will find this funny, but I wish it would RAIN!!!
Here it is nearly 10pm, and I am just eating supper. I need a break. Been picking raspberries, weeding the garden, carrying out 5 gallon buckets of weeds for the chickens and guineas to pick threw. Finished cleaning up the calf pens, and moved little keets, baby guinea hens, out to the next pen. The 29th is the next swap meet and want to have chicks and keets, plus some saddles and tack ready for that.
garden is actually dry, weeds are just breaking off, instead of being pulled out. Been hot and humidity is very high. But this morning was just right, 47 degree

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Oh wow, no A/C in the building that you do the agility in? Yes drink, drink and drink some more! So Rocky and the others go out over night. Do they have lights close to the pastures, or are they fine with being in the dark? Well I've about had it with the humidity, don't mind the heat, but that wet sock feeling sucks! It calmed down around noontime, so out went the boys for 2 and half hours. Then it was coming back and the nice cool breeze left us. They were getting warm and sweaty and the flies were coming alive again, so in they came! Honey and I did our walk at 10:30 am again today. I think this will be our new walking time for the hot days. I did get some weed whacking done in the shade of the indoor along the long wall. Then tonight behind the indoor in the shade of it, I pushed back another 15 feet of those vine like weeds! Marissa did cancel lessons this afternoon due to the heat and humidity, we'll see what tomorrow brings for my lesson at 2 pm. Maybe she'll call and I can go over earlier. That'd be great!

Glad he's enjoying his new toy. A good lawn tractor is a joy.
Glad your mom is doing okay with her arm fracture, hope the xray shows that it's been busy healing.
What was the occasion for dressing up Rocky? Hardly recognized him with his rainbow mane.
Will you go on with Blue's agility training?
I did a little groundwork with Allie yesterday out in the pasture and she did better, more calm. Also hosed several layers of dirt and sweat off BJ, he just sweats all day in this heat, as does Dee. They'd probably love a sprinkler out in the pasture, better yet, a pond.
Well, hope you have a great wednesday.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Glad somebodies have fun playing with their new toy! LOL! I bet Blue will graduate with honors from his first novice classes. Hope that you mom continues to heal. Well the heat and humidity stunk already at 7 am! About 10 am I took Honey for her walk, we did 1.75 miles. Mostly in the shade thank goodness! Got home and I was soaked from the humidity. Decided the hair had to go! Go my super short cut! Got home and there was no way the boys could go out! Put two more fans on in the barn, total of 6 going and 2 of them are the big commercial ones! Hayed them and fresh water. Came up to the house to cool off. Then went down and worked on putting in the two extra stallion bars by Bullseye so he stops pulling the bungee cords that hold his fan in place! Once again, soak n wet! Come up and hear the fire sirens going off. Here come all kinds of firetrucks and emergency vehicles past the farm. It was about 3 miles from me, don't know if it was the old farm house down there or next to it! Just praying that no humans or animals were lost! Then we got hit with a really bad T-Storm that shook the house and down poured like crazy! Looks like tomorrow will be a repeat performance of today's weather! This is really getting to me!

Thanks everyone for the birthday wishes. Sorry I haven't been on in a while...lots going on right now. Still taking care of my mom. This weather really sucks...I'm beginning to think we live in the rain forest. Horses had their vaccinations and hooves trimmed. Lots of grass to cut and weeds to kill! Today my plan is to cook a pork roast, wash my truck, cut grass and weed eat, then go feed the herd. Have a great week!

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Good for hubby getting a new to him lawn tractor! Have tractor will mow! LOL! Well worked in reverse today! Walked Honey this morning before the heat and humidity got really bad! Did 1.5 miles again. Of course by the time we got back and I wanted to mow, it was horrible out there! But I did get the baby paddock done and the entrance side of the indoor. And took the big rake and hand pushed back about a 40 foot length of those vines from behind the indoor, only 100 feet left to go! LOL! Much needed shower and off to the chiropractor for my normal adjustment. Then Wally World grocery shopping. Home and it was so bad out, I didn't dare turn the boys out, fresh water and hay! T-storms were bad to the south of us around 6:30 pm, could hear the thunder up here from about 12 miles away! Honey was shaking! Marion and the blondes.

Yes, I bet that makes a good break from his therapy training. As does going trail riding with you, I'm sure. The double loop sounds nice; the more riding, the better.
I did a little groundwork with Allie yesterday. It was the first time I've done anything with her in about 3 weeks and she was all speed and spook. Needless to say, she was in a lather by the time we finished, so she got hosed off and then I trimmed her feet. Then I was in a lather and needed a shower, lol. A really nice TS blew up just as I was finishing feeding and we got a good soaking from that.
Well, hope you have a great monday.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Sounds like you had a really busy day for sure! Best part, 2 rides around the place with Rocky! Bet he and Blue slept well that night! Well pretty productive day today. Had to, slacked off enough yesterday for my B-Day! LOL! Got hot out, but at least not humid! Got the weed whacking done where I wanted too! Mowed the lawn around the house and then the outdoor arena track fence lines! Boys were out a little over 2 hours only, then I noticed Indy was breaking a sweat just grazing, so in they came. Don't know why, maybe cause I'll be using the smaller goose neck to bring Paige home Sept 1st, I checked the tires! Remember I only put 2 new ones on it and still have to get the other two done. Well one of the two was flat, really like flat! So got out the air compressor and worked on those two tires. All pumped up now, probably go get them sometime in Aug so it's ready to go. New two tires holding air very well, better, right! LOL! Marion and the blondes.

Looks like Blue is enjoying his agility training. Is it fun to do?
I guess since my niece has moved away, I have primary responsibility for her horse, Dee, so I gave her a trim yesterday. Her feet were pretty chipped and have some flair, but she has really nice feet underneath. Also, my frend came over and we worked some more on the deck, got a little over half of the decking boards laid. Cutting them around the rails is slow work, but the rest is going pretty fast.

Nice outside today, going to rain sometime this afternoon. Was busy moving bigger chicks to bigger pens, so everyone is playing moving pens again. I have to keep the hen that hatched out guinea keets, locked up in the shop, mostly so that the keets do not go to the adult guinea hens that are running around outside. Keets raise by hens usually are more sociable, and do not stay out until it is too dark to see....like some guineas I know. Horses are doing OK, mostly getting fat. Mistit leg seems to bother her some times, I do the exercise for strengthening the muscle around the stifle joint, and she was doing good for a long time, now she is favoring that leg again.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. What a nice day weather wise today! Plus it was a great B-Day for me! Got a great ride on Paige in my lesson! Marissa figured out that I needed to shorten my stirrups a bit to keep my legs in a better position. It really helped my riding and my knees! Stopped at a friends on the way home for a small BBQ treat! Then got home and let the boys out. Honey and I took a nice 1.75 mile walk, it was kinda cool, 80F but with a nice breeze! So we both enjoyed it! Then was sat in the back yard and watched the boys grazing! Tomorrow it's back to work! Weed whacking and mowing, all that rain yesterday made that darn lawn grow! LOL!

Starting out my 69th year with a great ride, then a couple of bucks and a thud (thud was me). Amazed I can still bounce, not break. About a minute to go till the end of the lesson, and bombproof Dobie decides to throw in a couple of bucks, 2nd one got me off. Partly my bad, I was lazy and realized when I went to mount that I didn't have my boots or helmet, decided to ride anyway. I think it was partly the horse that was major tailgating at the end, plus the horse that broke into a trot as we got got back and I held Dobie up. Back is sore, L ankle is sore and a bit swollen. Sunset is home, makes 2 out of 3 times I have hauled her home and there's been a dang house in the road. Saw the wide load truck, and this time slowed WAY down. Glad I did.

Congratulations on your son's upcoming wedding! Exciting times.
Is Rocky on a 4 week trim schedule? It's amazing how good their feet look when they're trimmed often, isn't it? I need to do Allie's soon, and I guess I'm doing my niece's horse, Dee, now too, since they're moving away. She hasn't really talked to me about it.
I haven't been on HC the last couple of days. Worked 2 long shifts in a row, and my niece Kathryn (the one who used to stay with me and help with the horses) had a baby wednesday, so I spent most of yesterday visiting her and my sister. She and the baby girl are both doing well. I'll try to get back into routine now, lol. Although, there's nothing new to report. Haven't had time to ride in several weeks, and I'll probably try to work on the deck again today. But the horses are doing well.
I guess that's all. Hope you have a great weekend.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Oh so happy that he got done yesterday afternoon. I know that he has to be done really on time with his front end issue. Well the rains stayed till about 4 pm, steady but not super hard on us. About 1.5 inches all total! South Jersey took a beating! Several inches and major flooding of roadways. Severe thunder and lightning! Indy got lunged in the indoor. Then I trimmed Bullseye feet. He's done for another 8 weeks at least. He don't grow much hoof and he plays a lot outside and wears them down nice and even! Tomorrow the weather is looking better. Have my lesson earlier on Paige tomorrow. Yay, I love earlier! Marissa is going team penning with three of her horses and the people from her barn that are younger than me to do that stuff! I might go watch, it starts at 6 pm however! Feeding time for my guys is 7 pm. So I really doubt I'll go. Marion and the blondes.

Wow, sorry about your Mom's arm. Do they know how it happened?? A lady neighbor fell down and broke her leg, after she went to the hospital, they told her she had Stage 4 bone cancer, and could not do anything for it, (the cancer). Most likely more to that story, but it was what Mike had heard.
Temps here 3 days ago, were in the low 80's, yesterday and today, it was 44-47 in the morning and hardly got above 56, so it was good weather to weed the garden, since the gremlins like to get those weeds growing. And they were bad, I fill up 5 gallon buckets, and then feed to the guinea hens and chickens. Still not done, but at least it is a start.
Not one of Burt's eggs hatched, none were fertile, again. Now, I am waiting on the other incubator, with guinea hen eggs, so far nothing, but not giving up yet.

Come visit me, Mistic, Willow & Whisper.

Glad Rocky got his trim. Mine will get done on the 25th. Hot and sweltering today, wish the humidity would pack up and go somewhere else.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. I'm so sorry to hear that your mom fractured her upper arm! I wonder how! But with old age comes more brittle bones! Hope she heals okay! Yep, seems like farrier week for a lot of horses right now! Well it was a busy hot, humid one for sure! When you wake up at 6:15 and it's already 72F you know it's not gonna be nice out! It was like walking out into a sauna to feed. JW was here right on time, 9:30 to trim Indy. WOW are his feet really looking great! After he left, the sun disappeared and it didn't seem quite as bad. So I mowed the two med sized pastures, now they are all done. Then got ready and went over for my lesson with Paige. Had a really good lesson today. Marissa adjusted my stirrups again, and I do have to admit, even though it's more bend in my knees than I'm used to, I had a much quieter leg and seat! Worked on our horsemanship patters for the first day of the next show. It was hot in the indoor, I literally could have rung out my cool max t-shirt! We hosed her off and then I helped bring in the horses from the pastures. There was an alert over the radio that a bad storm was 15 minutes out. Yep it was, I ran into it on the way home. I had to pull off the road into a parking lot and wait it out! Ground to air lightning and rain so hard you couldn't see anything in front of you! This was about 7.5 miles from home, got within a mile of my farm and the roads and everything were dry as a bone! We got nothing up here on the mountain. I was glad, cause that thunder would have driven Honey nuts without me home! All was well! Boys got hay for lunch and fresh water, no time out today, to muggy and buggy again! Marion and the blondes.

Time for mine, too. Farrier will be out on the 25th. Will pick up Sunset Sat if it doesn't rain - not really supposed to. Sorry about your Mom, hope she keeps the sling on. Old bones get to be so brittle.
