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.

Hope you had a good weekend. Any fun things, besides washing the dogs?
Not much here. We had a few of the world's shortest thunderstorms stray through off and on yesterday, didn't quite total 1/4 inch all put together, but they kept me from riding so I trimmed Gracie's hinds and BJ'S fronts.
Well, hope you have a great monday

COULD I GET AMY MUDDIER???
Yup, that is Awesome Blossom, she is a treat, she is all about play and here she is after a big roll. I swear she thinks she is a race horse, I can't wait to get her on video just flying around the paddock. She is going to have to have a grazing muzzle, I tried putting Sterl May in another paddock, but Blossom can break thru, 3x times I tied a strand of rope across the bottom row and 3x she just put her head down and charged thru. But, say what you will she is perfect company for the "old girl" she loves her, she was a good move. I bought a book on training, now I just need her to READ it, lol. have a great day,

Making progress with Sunset, turned Cisco out, she made one pass down down the fence, then walked up to me and stood to have her halter put on. We did a bit of groundwork, then worked on loading. She's staying in a bit longer, and at least is backing out slowly, not at a dead run. Then gave her a good brushing, after she checked the brush for ? tiny dragons, lord knows what.

It feels like another deary wet day, very cloudy these last few days, and feels like spring because it is so damp. Rain on and off all night, we have a tin roof and between Barky barking in his pen and the rain, woke up so tired. My sister is home so Chance goes with us to visit my Mom, and Kat will mean us there. Last yr. they were going on this trip, and just made it to Kansas, (like 30 minutes) at their son's house, when Dennis, her husband got a call his youngest brother Dale, had passed away. Dale had MS and a few things wrong with him, but making it to 53 was a big thing, because they told his parents he would die before he finished 3rd grade. So this yr they took the trip and visited Arizona and Texas, and I am sure a few other states.
My son, Joe should be back from Madison today, so Barky will go either tonight or tomorrow morning. Then it will be cleaning time. They like to shed, and of course never wipe their little paws.

Glad the squall didn't add any accumulation and it's gradually melting off. Are the dogs all fluffy and clean again?
I got to ride yesterday. Allie was pretty stiff and just would NOT walk, so I worked her pretty hard. After a year of riding, I've come to expect almost no progress, and there's no excuse for that. I don't think she's wired for arena work at all; I really think she's gonna take to trail riding like a duck to water, but I haven't been able to find a dependable used truck nearby yet so we can't get to the trails. One day.
Well, hope you're having a great weekend. Take care.

MUD. MUD & MORE MUD
It rained all day yesterday, so I kept the girls in, neither of them mind it. I'm in and out of the barn several times during the day. I still feed at 4:30 AM, hard to change routines. All was well, but wildly windy, they may stay in again today. Off to town for groceries, my most hateful chore, talk later, have a good day.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Well it never got as warm as it was supposed too! Weather people lie! But we did get the rain they talked about, so 50/50 right! LOL! Indy and Bullseye got to free play in the indoor. Then Indy was nuzzling Mo the cat, I'll have to give Indy hairball medicine! LOL! Got over to Paige, neck looking better! Lunged her and then we did showmanship. Then Marissa had like three of us in there doing a mock show! It was fun. Tomorrow more rain and maybe warmer, notice I said maybe! Don't trust the Weather People at all lately! LOL! Marion and the blondes.

Little over 1/2" of rain yesterday. Got a surprise this AM, got buzzed by a hummingbird, so put their feeder out. Going to have to either get Cisco up first or turn him out before I catch Sunset up, she's trying to hide behind him and he's getting very irritated about her bumping into him. He tried to kick her this AM, and nearly got me. Do NOT need that.

I bet the cats enjoy the catnip toys. I grow some by the outside of garden, and dry it for the cats. Out weather is just a crappy as yours, then ad mud to the whole works.
Saturday votes coming your way.
House seems messy these last few days. Taking care of my sister's dog, Chance, and my son's dog, Barky, plus our 2, and 2 cats, now all the chicks. It seems like toooooo many little feet. This morning, Barky got into the potting soil, which are least was not on the rug, then got into the bag of day old bread for the chickens and Jack, and of course everywhere a mess. And the dogs, looked just like those cartoon pictures, where they are saying, "The devil made me do it".

Morning my friends, first I want to say I'm sorry for not being more active on HC. I have no excuse except that I am still very heartbroken and probably a bit depressed.Those of you that know me well, understand how much Charlie meant to me. I just simply feel that my life has been turned upside down. I'm grateful to have Sterl May still with me at 34 years old and I have to admit Blossom is worth the "price of admission" she is a hoot. All I can say is that i will try to be a better friend and I will get over this in time. Love Donna Lee

HI Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Well what a mixed bag of tricks the weather played on us today! Freezing rain, then rain and a few hours later, the sun's out! Temp did get up to about 44F and so more melting of snow mixed with the rains and it's becoming knee deep mud! Indy got a spa day. Bullseye got his front feet trimmed today, rears will be Sunday. I'm having some wrist problems and it was enough pain for one day! LOL! Marion and the blondes.

Long, long day yesterday. Had trouble catching Sunset, expected that. Then had trouble catching Jazz. Spent 4 1/2 hrs with the farrier, she floated everyone's teeth as well as did trims. Sunset was surprisingly good, barely got any sedative. Cisco had to get a second dose. Jazz just got done lightly, and poor Bo also got a bit done, and two pulled. She was SOOO good, just stood quietly without any sedation. Horribly windy, had hay blowing everywhere, finally wrestled the tarp over after I brought 3 loads of hay into the barn. Tried to get on HC couldn't.

Well some of that warmth, I am going to "hog" for myself. We have very little snow left, mostly in the ditches and in the woods. But everything else seems to be mud, I will send you that.
We had more rain than snow, infact all day yesterday, was just light rain, today I did get wet doing chores.
I can just picture all these little fluffy butts running around the house, Sadie would think they were her new toys. Even the cats know the word NO. At first they go into a large tote, then after I know they are eating and drinking good, into a rabbit cage, which is sitting on a empty tote to catch all the droppings for the composting pile. Now I wish I had not started so early, because it is still too cold outside for them. They do get stinky if I don't get around to cleaning up under them, but I usually get it done at least once a day. They make alot of dust.

Goodness, still so cold up there.
Yeah, mares in heat are a trial. Don't know how they think they're being attractive, being all moody and snippy.
Nothing much here horse-related, I was too busy to ride yesterday even though it was a pretty day. And off to work today, so still nothing horsey. But hope you have a great friday.

Vote 4400!
Hi Rocky, here's vote #4400 for ya. Yep about the same here, but 17 when I got up. Well started out very cold and warmed up to 41F with sun! But the rains are on the menu for the next several day! So we'll see what happens, but at least warmer temps. Got Indy lunged. Took some hay to the barn. Went over and lunged Paige. Then had a showmanship lesson, Marissa said we're really working like a dancing machine now! She didn't call last night cause she went out to dinner from the barn. But Paige was good considering she hadn't been ridden in like 9 days, Laura was happy with her. Now today those two lumps from the injection sites opened up and are draining. I new they were abscessing! I should have been a vet! Took a picture and sent it to Dr. B, he said just clean with Betadine twice daily, she'll be fine. OKAY! Marion and the blondes.

Trying to send you a tiny bit of sunshine, but I have to find some today. Very cloudy, and calling for snow and then rain, then snow.
Another cold spring day, we have winter advisory weather warning, but because it might turn to rain.
But my second batch of eggs hatched and I think I have ??? to many to count in there, and no one stands still.

Glad your snow is melting slow enough it isn't getting real muddy. Ours usually goes straight to mud, of course, on the rare occasion we get it.
I had a good day yesterday. Fired up the lawnmower for the first time this season, more to cut weeds than any grass. I'm always tickled when it starts after sitting all winter.
I went out to ride Allie and when I asked for a lope on the lunge line, she squealed, ducked her head, and took off. Uh-oh, that's not a good sign, lol. So she got a ton of groundwork and I didn't have much time left to ride. Apparently, she's in a strong spring time heat, and boy, was she chatty! Grunts, nickers, squeals, neighs. Kinda funny.
Well, hope you have a great thur.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. We too are losing snow, but not much melted today at 25 degrees! I hope this is the end of it! Although we did have snow flurries twice this morning! Well it was cold, high of 25 with windchill of 15F all day long! Not nice like yesterday for sure! But did get Indy and Bullseye to the indoor for some free play time! They both had fun for sure! Honey got to run like wind in there too, as it's to frozen snow and ice outside and I don't want her hurting herself. Cause she can run! Haven't heard from Marissa yet on how Laura did today with Paige. But then again, sometimes she don't leave the barn till way after 8 pm at night. Tomorrow's my day with Paige, I'll probably do some warm compresses just cause I can! LOL! Marion and the blondes.

That's OK, in another month or so I will be complaining about the weather when hit triple digits. We were 89 yesterday, but only 82 today. Knee's doing better, got fly stuff (Freedom 45) on everyone. Sunset is so afraid of eveything, thought she would have a fit, especially when I put it on her poll, but she was SO good. Went grocery shopping, and farrier is due out tomorrow.

Sending you some warmer temps, should be there today, coming Pony Express. We had 50 2 days ago, but nights are near 0, but the sun is bright and warm feeling.
Second batch of chicks are hatching now, have 15 ?? if they would hold still it would be easier to count. Mikey had a good supper, last minute he said he wanted BBQ's, so made them, and also BBQ drumsticks and no one told the baby chicks, but I told all of them they were girls, and no little roosters, but even at 4-5 days old, I see some of them fighting already.

We hit the 70s yesterday and then had a bunch of thunderstorms roll through. At first, they were coming right up but going around, which was aggravating, but they finally came over and then it rained and stormed for a long time. I'm interested to see what the rain guage has in it. Was so happy to finally get a good soaking rain. They kept me from riding, but I did get Gracie's fronts trimmed.
Hope your week is going well.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Oh the melting is happening and the mud is deep and gooey! Good day today! Got the door to the door cleared. So now hopefully I'll be able to get in that way. Indy got free lunged today. Bullseye got to play. Then I went to Paige's and did her neck with the hot compresses. Then she got lunged and I had a nice showmanship review lesson and Marissa also worked her on showmanship to really sharpen her up. Just got off the phone with Marissa and she tacked her up and lunged her for a good 25 minutes to bend and flex her some more. She said that Paige was grunting at her, that's a good sign! Means she working when she grunts! LOL! Marion and the blondes.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Well good news from Dr. Brash, it's nothing really serious with the swelling from the shots, and there's no damage to the muscle area. Can stop the Bute as of today, but continue with the hot/warm compresses for a few more days. Do Tues & Weds then just keep her moving to help free up the neck muscle. And now with Marissa back from vacation and starting to work her out again Tues, and Laura coming to ride on Wed, she should be doing much better then with her neck stretches. JW came and shod her, he really did a nice job, goes to show you, you don't need all the high powered fancy equipment and rig, just the basic farrier tools and TAKE your TIME doing the job right! Didn't get home till almost 4 pm, so Indy and Bullseye got a late lunch and fresh water. No turnout time. Tomorrow before I go back to my afternoon sessions with Paige. First day of Spring and we hit 50F degrees, felt nice out there and melted off a wee bit of snow! Marion and the blondes.

Always, chores, huh? They never end.
It was a beautiful day yesterday and I had a good ride on Allie. She was relaxed and not trying to fly around when we loped. She was waiting for the whoa one time and actually dropped from a lope to a walk in one stride (though she dribbled on a few more steps before stopping). It wouldn't have wowed any judges, but I was tickled to death. It was the first time she's ever put any effort into stopping.
Well, off to work, ugh. Hope you have a great monday.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Shiva must have been running in the snow in her dream! LOL! What a day! That's all I can say! But Paige was a tad better with the swelling, but now the two injection sites are solid type lumps, like one is pea size and the other grape sized. So I took a picture and sent it to the vet, told him I'm worried they could be abscesses starting! He's coming over in the morning, free of charge to check her out! There will be lot's of questions asked by me for sure! Since 10 horses were done that day at the barn, and only one other had a sore neck a couple of days, it's not a bad batch of vaccines. She is just sensitive and I think he hit her wrong personally speaking! Got her lunged, she was kicking up her heels, so she's feeling better. Hot compresses on her neck, then used the towel and cleaned off the bulb of her heel and scrubbed it with Betadine Scrub from my house. Then dried it off and finished with another spray of Wound-Kote. Got home and played with Honey. Then went to the barn and got Indy to the indoor for a short run for himself. Late lunch for them and then for me. Then a much needed nap! Marion and the blondes.

Tomorrow is SPRING, and tell Mother Nature, take all her snow and Old Man Winter and send them both away.
Sunday starting out cold, but I heard it should warm, should have yesterday, but didn't. Babysitting, my son's dog, Barkey, who in the middle of the night decided to live up to that name, and also Chance, for my sister, who is visiting her son in Kansas, both of them are small dogs. My grandson, Dominic, was wrestling yesterday, came in 1st, and next weekend, he will go to state for championship. Just making it this far is great.

Glad you got some sun yesterday and the snow missed you. Looked like the dogs really enjoyed the sunshine.
I did get to ride yesterday but only a short ride and didnt get much done with Allie. The wind calmed down for a while in the early afternoon but by the time I was saddling up, the gusts were bending the trees sideways. I rode for a little bit, but neither Allie nor I could concentrate, so I cut the ride short. Will try again today.
Well, hope you have a great sunday.
