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.

have you & Rocky rode any lately? ✞ storm’s & a whole lot of rain! After work I had time to let the herd graze a little while then put them up for feeding time, then the sky’s started getting darker and darker! Needless to say we went on in and called it a day! Have a nice Sunday! Hugs and a vote for all ✞

♥ we ended up with visitors Friday. My grandson Jason and our nephew Little Ron stayed the night. We had fun. I gave the horses a spa day and had a wonderful ride on Deacon. All the farm land was dry enough for me to ride a long while. I also rode Whiskey Sunday. It was SOOOO windy. He doesn’t spook and it seems nothing bothers this horse “) No way Deacon could of took it, he’s the one who see’s monsters in the high winds. Have a great day!!!

Deacon got his new shoes yesterday and Rocket and Whiskey had their trims done! I will keep Deacon that way through around July then he will go barefoot the rest of the year. We worked on the stretches again. They seem to respond well and it makes me feel good that I can help them gain muscle and feel better. Whinny’s, hugs and a vote ☆

I had a really nice horsey filled weekend. After work Friday a hosed down and washed Deacon up real good, he was a muddy mess. He stayed clean over night-he loves to be clean so I figured he wouldn't roll. Had a nice trail ride with lots of friends. I wanted to keep riding but Deacon is not in tip top shape just yet. Sunday was Whiskey's turn for a bath and riding. I rode him some around the home property. They both look so clean and pretty. Today I will get Rocket cleaned up. I curryed him a little but was too tired to give him a bath. We BBQ ribs and shrimp and enjoyed the nice weather Sunday. It stayed cloudy but was nice. Have a wonderful Monday ♡

it was sunny after work and less windy-wind from the north & east rather then the south. Filled water tubs, turned out the boys to graze and put their feed up that I got on the way home. Just a nice evening before this silly weather hits us today and the next few days! Have a wonderful Sunday and here is a hug & a vote ♡ spring is just around the corner. I saw bloomed daffodil flowers yesterday in town!!!!

♡ Oh Sunday was absolutely beautiful, the temp was 73 and little to no winds. I did get out of work later then I excepted so I just let the boys out to graze and enjoy the weather. They got carrots with their evening feeding time and they loved that. I want to let everyone know that the COA page (calendar of Agendas) has come to an end. Maria (Dakota’s mom) and I have agreed that there is not enough support to continue this page. I suggest for anyone that wants pictures or any history from the page to visit and copy and paste what you want. She will be turning in the points and deleting the page soon. I will still be on HC with my horses so anyone that runs for HOTM & HOTD I will support of course as a regular member as always. Have a wonderful Monday!!!

♥ I have had a relaxing nice 7 days off work. I did have time to groom, play, watch and ride the horses. I also enjoyed my other animals as well. I seemed to have finished a lot that I had planned but rested as much as possible. I have also made a to do list for myself for the warmer days like, clean feed buckets, clean and oil saddles and bridles, wash saddle pads, clean out tack room (I started that on my vacation) and at some point (lol) I want to clean the panels between the stalls and paint-not sure if that will ever happen but I put it on my list. Good to be back at a computer instead of using my phone. Have a wonderful weekend <)__~

that is good news! Glad you are safe and sound. My day off work could not have been nicer. It got to 79 and sunny all day. I washed out manes and groomed the herd. They looked so nice and fresh! I then had a wonderful ride on King Deacon. He enjoyed the rest of the afternoon grazing with his herd, I wish everyday could be that nice!!! Have a wonderful HUMP day ♡

Thank you all for my birthday wishes here on HC & FB! I had a really nice day. First of all we went to the grocery store, after unloading and putting everything up I gave the horses their afternoon hay. It is so muddy here. It will take a good while to dry out, so no riding. It will be in the 70's for 4-5 days so while I'm off work Tuesday, I will haul out and ride. I brushed and groomed the herd that is so relaxing for me. Of course I sat while they ate their dinner. That was about it for me, had to work today so I hit the hay early :)

The herd is happy to have plenty of feed now~glad I remembered to pick it up after work-lol. The cold is returning. I did get to let them graze a little before feeding time last evening. Today I will only get to watch them eat their dinner and nothing else this evening. Have a wonderful hump day ♡

Thank You for HOTD!!
I've been gone from HC for quite awhile, and I forgot how much I missed my HC friends...and Rocky is one of my favorites!!
I was so surprised to see Luna had made HOTD after such a short time of returning to HorseChannel...thank you for your vote!
I went riding with some friends today, and as we were passing through a wide-open snow covered field in a park, Luna decided it was time to roll. She goes down and I scramble off as fast as I could, and when she's done she stands there and looks at me as if she's saying, "What? You've never wanted to make a snow angel before?" LOL. Well, my friends and I all had a good laugh while I remounted, and continued the ride with no more events. I sure wish I had my camera with me hahaha.
Well, I left you a vote, and as always, have a horsey day!!

After work yesterday I let the herd out to graze. They were so happy to see the sunshine and have grazing time. I took the curry comb and got as much mud off as I could. They liked that too. I can't hardly wait to ride tomorrow! Have a wonderful weekend everyone ♡

Rick saw the fork lift driver hitting the door frame. He said the man ran into it at least 3 times, then had to go out a side gate. I didn't see it, because I was checking out the display shed. Lowes told Rick they found another shed in stock. They're delivering it in the morning and not charging me for the delivery. Going to put it up behind Rick's metal storage container. It'll be protected from most of the wind. Will still anchor it. Love and a Happy Friday vote.

oh boy, I hate it when the car doesn't start-not a good sign. I keep a extra blanket and coat in my truck just in case that happens to me. These gray cold days will be ending for us tomorrow. We will have 4-5 days of sunshine, 62 Saturday and 64 Sunday. What a nice weekend off I hope to have. Here is a hug & a Wednesday vote :)

☆ After work yesterday it was so beautiful and no winds. I got in a little late from work or I would have saddled up and rode for a bit. I settled to let them get out and graze because the next few days will not be good for any turnout time anyway. Hanging out indoors through Sunday other than feeding times =( Have a wonderful day! Whinnies & hugs =)

♥ Turned out the boys for nearly an hour and broke out the curry comb. Believe it or not Whiskey never did roll so he looked good but King Deacon and Rocket were another story. While they grazed I combed them. Have a wonderful day :)

King Deacon is eating up the attention! Of course I have shared treats with the rest of the herd but he gets the most ☆ we have a very busy week ahead of us so quick votes this week. It has been so cold and wet. The rain cleared out Sat. afternoon and it has been sunny but windy. My herd has evolved into MUDSTANGS so major grooming coming their way ~ I’m sure that won’t bother them a bit. Whiskey’s eye is normal again, I stopped doctoring it Friday and it still looks good thank GOD!!! . Have a wonderful day! Whinnies & hugs =)

Happy New Year to you and wish you the best ever =
Ω Deacon thanks all of you for your amazing support during his run! Again love all my HC friends and horses. I took Whiskey Tuesday for a ride at the lake. He hasn’t been out there for a while and we had a cold but nice ride. I got my birthday gift early and it is a beautiful new saddle pad. I will post under Whiskey in a little while. Deacon had the day off! Wed. & Thursday (today as well) is so cold and wet out. Won’t clear out until tomorrow afternoon. Don’t know when I will ride again. Whinny’s hugs & love ~ Stay safe & warm Ω

I have to say I'm very dull and boring, no New Year's party for me, in fact I didn't even stay up until midnight...
I picked up a bag of the new grain free feed yesterday, Charlie has been doing well with his new "items" he loves the alfalfa pellets, I was trying to feed all this dry, but I found he left the rice bran and oat flour in the bottom of his bucket, he seems to prefer a soaked bucket and that way I know he is getting it all. So, I added just a bit of the new feed and he loves it. One day at a time. I have been warned that this will take about 3 months for the healing, so I will set my goal for a happier horse by spring. Thanks for all the support and letting me dump this on all of you, Love and a vote, Donna Lee

On the 1st when I wake I will see who top horse is and I am surely hoping it is my Deacy (Mr. Eyeliner) lol I will get a final vote count before I go to bed the 31st and let you know what his final votes were.

✞ Deacon is such a sweet gentle soul, he loves kids. When a child is around he lowers his head down with VERY soft eyes and it almost seems as if he tries to make his body small ~it is such a sight to see. Some of you will gasp at this but I don’t lunge Deacon before riding, never have. He has always been such a gentleman. I do lunge him sometimes if I don’t have time to ride and it’s just to have time with him. I sure do hope your weather is better than it has been here. The winds have been terrible 20-30 mph and cold! Happy trails to you and here is a whinny and a click on your horseshoe with love =)
