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.

We did get the pond in, still have to move the cage over the top, but want to plant flowers and plants where the cage will go, but will have to steal violets, and day lilies from other areas because all I have in this area is Snow on the Mountain. Yes, we still have cold or cool weather mornings have been down to 28, but usually around 34. Spring will make it, I know, because my guinea hens have started laying.

Hoping to be able to pick up another corral panel, next week. Going to get one instead of 2. Waiting for a way to pick up the material to put a wall on Sadie's shade. Wish I had a truck instead of a car. Anxious to get it done. Leaving love and a vote.

That'll be great to get some horse time this weekend. And time outside doing yardwork. Is the new foster dog doing well?
I've never known anyone with the Old Mac boots, but I've heard they are good. Glad they work so well for Rocky-I'll have to check them out.
I got on Allie for the first time since "the incident" a few weeks ago. We were both so tense we could barely breathe, but I kept it short and sweet, and it went well. Whew! Now to build on that.
Well, hope your Thursday is going well. Take care.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. WOW what a great foster dog! What kind is he/she? Yes the ThunderShirt does really help! Maybe not calm them down totally, but she stopped shaking and panting like a crazy lady. From now on when I know we're gonna get a possible thunderstorm, on goes the ThunderShirt! Might help her better that way. Well it was a very busy day with getting ready for the first show of the season. Got the trailer hooked up and all loaded up, except for some last minute stuff in the morning. Horses clipped, Lunged and turned out for an hour of pasture time too. Then weed whacked all around the place! I'm exhausted! Mo came home, finally after 5 days on the lamb! LOL! He was in the barn when I came back from Lungeing Paige. He was talking up a storm with me and was very happy to rub against my leg and be picked up and petted! He ate some of his food and then went outside and sat in the grass. Tonight he's on the MIA list again. But I know he's all right at least. Just not fond of Honey, that's all! LOL! I'll be back on line on HC on Sunday night. We show Friday and Saturday, I'll stay over night then and leave Sunday morning sometime for home. Marion and the blondes.

I'll have to check out the old mac boots. Seems like if it's easy to get on, it doesn't stay on.
Does your mom like horses too? Yeah, I'd be happy petting and smelling a mini if I was in a nursing home. I think you need a mini, lol.
Had another good but busy day yesterday, and it's back to work today, so won't have any horse time. Hope you have a good hump day.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. That is awesome that the foster dog loves the horses and going out on the trails. Does she leash him off the horse?? Well, it was raining when I got up, knew it was going to. So this morning went up to Wally World and did a big grocery shopping for the horse show. I'll be making sausage, peppers and onions for dinner for 15 people, geezzz I can just about handle making food for myself! Wish me luck! LOL! Then lunged Paige, who is feeling her oats so to say! And when we were just about done, the lightning and thunder started. I knew that I might have a problem with Honey, so I got Paige back to the barn and on the wall. Up to the house, and sure enough, Honey was panicked! Shaking like heck and panting! Got her ThunderShirt right on her and laid on the floor with her. After it all stopped, I took her to the barn with me as I still had to lunge Indy. She was okay in the barn. After I finished Indy, I trimmed Bullseye's feet. Then Honey and I went back to the house, she was pretty calm then and it was just raining. So now I have to worry about being away from the house when a storm is approaching. Poor baby girl. Marion and the blondes.

More rain today, like 5th day in a row. The temps are cool too, so outside work is like the rain....hit and miss. Rest of the week should be cool without too much rain. Been planting tomatoes in paper cups, for the garden. I do have about 20 tomatoes plants up about 6-8 inches, but these were a different kind. As long as it is raining, we will go for feed today, if we can get the topper back on the truck.

glad you got to visit your mom over the weekend. how is she doing? yeah, it'll be good for my folks to be there, mom especially. she's never enjoyed living in the woods, likes to be involved with people.
i hope someone brings dogs and ponies to my nursing home when im there. that'll make our eyes light up.
glad the hoof boots work well for Rocky. ive heard good things about them, but the ones ive bought havent fit well and wont stay on. speaking of making hoof boots fit, i saw a video related to the "diagnosing caudal heel syndrome" article at the bottom of HC that used various epoxy products to get a better fit inside the boots for any given horse. hmmmm...
well, hope you have a great tuesday and take care.

PS didnt you say Rocky has navicular? i have also read that a triangle shaped pad under the frog inside a boot sometimes helps a navicular horse move out well. they sell pads you can cut to size that fit into a hoof boot. but if he's comfortable and sound in his boots as are, probably shouldnt mess with it. "if it aint broke, dont fix it"

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Glad that you got out on a trail ride. I love those hoof boots, have a pair for Indy. Since he don't wear shoes not that he's not showing. In my indoor it's nice soft sand, so he don't need anything. But at the shows, if I hack him around, I'll put the Cavello Sport boot on him. Well another busy one today, make hay while the sun shines! Since Tuesday we are in for thunderstorms and rain! Took Honey for a ride in the truck, she really likes to be with me. Went to the dollar store and then Tractor Supply for Paige's grain. On sale plus I had two $5 off coupons! WHOO HOO! Got home and lunged Paige and did some showmanship work. Then lunged Indy, his legs are staying normal now! WHOO HOO again! Then they got turned out, up to 65 minutes today. Then I mowed the lawn, it needed it again, that's last week and this week. Can't believe how it's growing. Marion and the blondes.

Hi, hope you had a great weekend. How's your weather? How's your mom?
I went down to visit my folks for a couple of days, and it was bittersweet because it was probably the last time I'll visit them in their old house. They're moving to a retirement neighborhood and I think it'll be great for them: yardwork and maintenance are done for them, they can have meals and transportation if needed, and they even have friends who already live there.
I did some groundwork with Allie yesterday and she was all anxious and fast again. I think the deciding factor is if her buddies are close by or not, but I'll do some experiments over the next few days to make sure it's not tack or something else bothering her. She's just not going to be easy, I'm afraid.
Well, hope your week gets off to a good start. Take care.

Quick voting this morning before I do chores Can hear the birds singing outside, and little chicks starting to peep in the incubator. Going to start putting in the pond for the turtles today, needs electric for the filters so thinking next to the house or even in the day lillys over by the garage, even have the large cage to put over the top of everything, to keep them safe. Want to dig now while the ground is soft, since it has rained the last two days. Ponies seem to like to stay inside again, before they kept walking to the door like they wanted out, but that means more pen cleaning. Been trying to keep it clean, so all I had to do was put down lime, to kill anything in the soil, (it has dirt floor), then the sawdust, and straw, before Mistic has to use it for her baby. She other wise will be outside all day, and come in at night. So much for a quick vote, huh. :)

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. What a busy day! My friend Anthony came up to de-winterize the LQ Trailer. Since we'll be leaving Thursday morning bright and early. Took two hours to really do it all and service the A/C unit too. Paige got lunged and did some showmanship. Indy got lunged, legs doing much better. Then I dragged the indoor really good and washed the big tractor off. Horses and donkey out for pasture time, up to one hour now. They are loving their grass time. Worked with Honey too. I'm exhausted! Tomorrow it's Tractor Supply for Paige's grain and mow the lawn. I can't believe how much it grew in a week! Marion and the blondes.

Since, most of you know, I sold Kisses to Stephanie last fall, and would like to make only two pages, one for Whisper and one for the little minis, first I will add Pickles, who came with Paisley from the rescue called Ryon's Rescue in Cannon Falls, Mn. I will try to get these done in the next few days....hopefully.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Well sunny and windy today! High of about 67 degrees, but the wind made it feel a lot chillier! Indy got free lunged and then the line, he didn't want to exercise enough on his own, so it's line time! His legs are just about staying normal overnight now. Paige hit the line and got in more bucks than made me happy! I don't need her re-injuring herself! Then they got out for 45 minutes of pasture time. Nose's to the grass! Bullseye and Honey met nose to nose outside. All was good. She's a little afraid of them in the barn, but we're trying to get them to greet each other. Indy wants to nuzzle her so bad! He and Harley would lick either other all the time. Indy really misses that and he's still mourning Harley, I can tell! Marion and the blondes.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Triple H today, hazy, hot and humid! We were at 82 degrees. Got Indy lunged, his legs are almost back to normal, no meds today, hope I didn't just jinx him! Paige is doing well on the lunge line and didn't act up today, so just the stud chain to remind her to be civil! LOL! Everyone got out this afternoon for grass time, they're up to 45 minutes now of fresh grass. Then I took a walk, trying to knock off 3 more lbs by next Thursday! But I'm down less than last year already. Rains held off and hopefully we won't get them tonight. Truck is so clean, hate to see it get wet and dirty tomorrow when I run to town.

Whisper and the little herd are sending you another vote.
We had temps near 80 two days ago, this morning we have frost, and a slight chance of snow. We go from one end to the other with our weather.
I had to cover the little chick's cage last night, and lower their heat light, it's not really a "heat" bulb, it is a 75 watt one.

Hi Rocky, here's vote #2700 for ya. Busy day again. Took Honey to be Micro Chipped, then a few stops at stores, she was so good in the truck. Got home later than I wanted and Paige was upset with me. She even got a little rambunkshus on the lunge line, had to revert to the lip chain! Don't need her hurting herself this close to leaving next Thursday for the show. Then free lunged Indy, he was only a little stocked up today. Today was the last of his two days of meds again. So we'll see how it goes. They are up to 40 minutes on grass now and loving it! Possible rain and thunderstorms tomorrow afternoon, so will try and do everything with them earlier and beat the thunder! Marion and the blondes.

Houston seems to be the worst right now. It is hard to watch the news of all the people and animals that are effected by it ☂ The rain hit us hard again this morning, another 1" at this point. Saw on the news that area lakes are closed including Lake Whitney & Lake Waco so I check channel 10 when I got to work, sure enough they are. Ho hum.....last year it stayed closed for nearly 3 months...I will call later and see if the day riding at Whitney is for sure. Maybe its just the boat dock area's. Lake Waco said the day riding side at Reynolds creek was closed for sure. All of this will move out this afternoon and we will have 2 days of nice weather then it's back starting on Sunday. Looks like my 3 day weekend will be mostly in door spring cleaning Ha Ha ☂

Our grass is getting green, very short, can not even pull enough for the bunny...down to only one...we will see how long that last. Been short spring drizzles, mostly at night, but we need a good thunder shower. Our 2 young sows came a few days earlier, but have already "plowed" up most of their pen. They are friendly, and eating their grain. Made them a small mud puddle, since pigs can not sweat, so need mud to cool off. House is not finished for them yet. So many small project, I am working on, and NOT one of them, spring cleaning.

Galloping by with some votes! I added 3 new pics of Katie to her page. She and her stablemates got baths yesterday and we couldn't resist taking a picture of them all in a line and all spruced up. I got a pic of her separately and it's kind of hard to tell in the pic, but her tail now drags on the ground about 4-5 inches! Today I free longed her in the arena and snapped a pic as she trotted around me. She is doing well and looking good for being almost 28!

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Well got a lot done today again. Nice day, little breeze and mid 60's. The bute and SMZ's are helping Indy again. Lunged him and legs came down to normal. Lunged Paige, a couple of friskies but not bad. Spoke to Dr. Herb this afternoon, he's very happy with what I'm doing with her with the jogging and walking intervals. Keep up the good work he said. No loping till after our show. Then tranq her and lope her a little. If all stays well, 5-15 we can start to ride! Worked with Honey my way and she's doing good. She loves to sit outside and watch me do things, great supervisor! LOL! Marion and the blondes.
