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.

can't wait to hear what type of foster dog she got! How quick the weekends seem to go! Grocery shopping, mowing and baby shower on Saturday, Sunday more mowing and weed eating plus helped a little with the north side of the stall. I groomed Deacon and fly sprayed him, no riding, maybe Friday or next Monday. Have a wonderful week ♡

Enjoy our time with Tristan, short as it was. Takes about hour and half to get there, visited awhile at the trailer, and Mike helped him fix or showed him how to fix a few things. Dominic played with a kitten that one of the roommate has. Dominic has wanted a kitten for a long time, so Tristan told me he thought the littermate might still be available. So he just might be the best and only brother Dominic has, but I know ahead of time his Mom will not let him keep it, but he also know that GrMa will.:) Our grass is the same way, sometimes, its like a hay field. I save the clipping, feed some to the pigs, but dry the rest, and use it for the chicken coop and baby chick pens. Funny, how Mother Nature always seems to keep us busy. In fact, it is pouring outside now.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Well less humidity and temps today with a nice breeze most of the day! High was only about 80 degrees, I can live with that! LOL! Got a ride in on Paige, going back to basics with her loping to get her to use that rear end drive train! She's had enough time to really heal! Then weed whacked a little. Turned them out, yay! They were happy! Mowed the back yard and then one pasture! It's gonna take a week to catch up mowing and it'll be time to start all over! Got spoiled in June and early July with no rain and the grass not growing. Now with the humidity and dew, it's gone crazy! Marion and the blondes.

Off to Eau Claire this morning to go for a quick visit with Tristan, my grandson, who is going to linesman school. Taking his little brother Dominic with us. Bring him meat and veggies from the garden, and fresh eggs. Can never stay long enough but always enjoy being around him.

Hi Rocky, here's vote #3200 for ya. So did you go and pick up the adoption dog today? What is it? Can't wait to hear about him/her. Well, hot and humid again! Did a few things this morning and then went to a BBQ for a short time. Got home by 2 pm and it was way to hot to turn them out. Brought them up and cold hosed and let them dry for 10 minutes eating the backyard grass, not safe there either! Killed a big boeing 707 in each one each time! They about dragged me to the barn! Hayed and fresh watered them. Then sweated my butt off mowing the baby pasture and back by the manure pile. Oh ground hog count is not 5 caught and bang bang! And for those of you who know the story, one was drug by crows into idiots backyard and the crows were feasting on it! He came out and had to remove it! I was in the barn watching him, he was like a little girl doing it! I couldn't stop laughing. Shame on me, naw! Marion and the blondes.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Glad that it turned out to be an easy cheap fix! I've heard that with the newer cars and trucks, if the cap won't close or the seal is broke, they won't run! What kind is the new forster doggie? Well the humidity is back and so are all the darn bugs! Lunged Paige bitted up today, had all the fans going and the door fans and in 20 minutes she was soaked! Untacked and cold hosed her off. Then had to run to the post office and mail out a flash drive to the lady that took like 50 pictures of Paige and I in Showmanship. You might have seen some of them on FB! Got home and gave them fresh water and hay inside. They were happy. I went to more mowing by the indoor. The north side is only like 50 x 100 and I had to empty the rear double baggers 3 times, it was so thick and high! Hopefully now I can start to catch up on mowing and weed whacking around the place. Marion and the blondes.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Oh No, not the truck! Hope it's an easy cheap fix for your daughter! Well not much got done today. It was about 80 and overcast for the most part with some rain this afternoon. Of course right around the time I was supposed to get a load of hay delivered. They didn't come, thank goodness! Did get grocery shopping this morning. Then got home and turned the horses out. There still was a little breeze and no sun. But I swear, Paige has a timer in her head. She hates being out more than 90 minutes! She starts running circles by the gate and there weren't any bugs out there, it was a light rain! She's just like I want in my stall with my fan on! Did get the rest of the weed whacking done all around the indoor. And tonight I trapped the momma or dad of the ground hogs, this thing is huge! Has to be about 8 pounds or more! It's sleeping right now! LOL! Marion and the blondes.

Glad to hear Allie is following "orders". I have not done much riding these last few days, mostly because now Willow is out in the big field, her and Whisper get along fine, but I don't really bring them in, until late like it is dark already. Mistit is out with them, I did keep her in the other pen, and also staked her out, but right now, I have been letting the baby chicks run outside, under the lean to part of the shed, and that is where Mistit would go for shade, and with the door shut, she would have to stand out in the sun. Little chicks are learning how to free forage outside for bugs, and then to come in for water or feed, plus where the come "home to roost". Now, I have heard that saying before. Off in a bit to take Mikey in for labs this morning. Beautiful morning, foggy out, and temps are in the 50's, but will get up to the 70. Right now we have no outdoor temps on our thermometer so guessing on that.

Your daughter is really doing a brisk fostering business. You say a lot of the dogs come from down here, how do they get up there? Do they have volunteers who drive several dogs at a time? Thats a long way and a lot of gas if they do that regularly. Wow.
We only had a 20% chance of rain yesterday, it's not supposed to rain this week at all, and I came home from work to 1.5 inches in the rain gauge! Praise the Lord for that! That'll really help.
Well, hope you have a great thursday. Take care

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Well temps were 54 and went to 83 with a lot of sun and bugs today! So they just about lasted 90 minutes out only. Paige even with her fly sheet was being attacked by one of those boeing 707's! On her neck, so she was running like a nutcase! I did tack her up and lunge her in the bitting rig. Working on getting her back on the vertical and collected. Since my knee is still hurting, figured ground work is easier. Got some weed whacking done around the indoor, probably half of it, hopefully finish Thursday. After a trip to Wally World for groceries. Today is Honey's 5 month anniversary, I can't believe how well she's doing off leash now. Great little dog! Marion and the blondes.

Good Morning!! Sold 25, (really 27) baby chicks and 6 keets, (baby guinea hens) yesterday. So have enough money now to buy feed, and some small square bales of hay. I leave the computer on, and as I come and go in and out the house, stop and leave a vote here and there. Been very busy, with gardening, making a bigger pen for the keets, and helping Mike check the hay field fencing, then keep a eye on the steers, and horses and ponies as the find a big 10 acre field to really open up and run. My brother invited us over for a cook out last night, because my brother is home from Alaska with his family. It's been raining and very muddy again, like the kind of mud that likes to "suck your boots off".

Years and years ago, I had a pair of the basic easy boots, and they stayed on pretty good but were a pain to put on. I'd have to go back for them once in a while. Seems like the only ones that will stay on are the ones that are a pain to put on. I'll have to look in to the Old Macs. Right now, due to the oldness of the truck and loosing my trail riding buddy to a busy life, I'm not trail riding anyway.
Well, off to work. Hope you have a great hump-day.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Oh that's great that Blue finished his pills. What a good boy with the cone! So what need storm meds did Shiva get? Curious about what didn't work and what's working now! A vet tech at the show said I can use liquid Ace, (horse one) on Honey. 1/2 cc or less on her gums. Works in like 15 minutes. That Sileo they sold me takes 90 minutes or more to work and only lasts 2 hours. Another good weather day, little warmer, like 80 degrees with some humidity, but not that bad. Horses were out for two hours and then wanted in. I noticed some bugs starting to come around too. Got a load of pelleted bedding and grain for Paige. Got home unloaded it myself, took my time. Then mowed the lawn which was like a mini forest! Other than that, that's it. More weed whacking tomorrow and mowing, plus I will work with Paige, back in training with me! Marion and the blondes.

Have to rush again this morning. Someone coming around 11 to buy some chicks and a few keets. Hope its enough to buy feed next week. Temps were in the 40's yesterday and very breezey, but good weather for fixing fence. Mike did most of it, while I make another pen for guineas keets...time to move them out of big rabbit cage. Willow finally got to go in with whisper, as ponies and all went into the hay field, now they have 10 acres to run and run they did, of course Willow limped most of the time after, but so good to hear the "thunder of hooves" even if they were little beats.

I like the barefoot horse and then hoof boots for trails too. It seems to work well, except that I haven't had any luck finding boots that'll stay on, and they're too expensive to just keep buying. Within the first few strides of a trot, they've stepped out of them.
Hope you'll be able to go on some trail rides with him. Even short trail rides are fun. Take care.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Glad to hear that Blue is doing better. I looked for you today on DC, but didn't see any posts about Blue, just the one I read on here. So glad that he's on the mend. I bet he hates that collar is right! Well the rain yesterday was 1.5 inches, but the ground was dry this morning, it really needed it again! Spent the late morning and half the early afternoon, cleaning out the trailer! Since the weather was delightful, 73 degrees with a breeze! And best was no bugs or humidity! Sinks scrubbed, toilet scrubbed, throw rugs out and vacuumed, floor washed, laundry done, all the horses stuff but away, and the feed, hay stall swept out! Now I just have to Pledge the wood cabinets and scrub the refridge, but I still have drinks in there for when I'm working on it. Horses were out for like 2 hours, they loved it, no bugs and just peaceful! Tomorrow it's a trip to Tractor Supply for Paige's food and pelleted bedding while the 10% coupon is still good. Then home and start to work with Paige again. Knee brace is back on, hopefully it'll support it enough I can get back to riding. Marion and the blondes.

Here it is Monday...outside it is cool, and so much moist in the grass that I left trails everywhere.....just like a snail. Mike is out working on the fence around the hayfield, so soon everyone can go out there, and we can start redoing areas of their pastures....too many weeds.

Saw that Blue is healing up, so glad. He's decided that he'll probably have to wear that stupid cone the rest of his life, I bet, lol.
Glad your daughter has the truck and trailer back up and running. Does that mean yall might haul out to some trails? I know you don't get much time with the horses, but it would be fun to do. I have a very old rattley farm truck that I have used to pull short distances, but it kinda scares me and I haven't used it in a couple of years to haul, so the trailer tires need checking, maybe replacing, and the floor checked too. I dream about having a newer truck to go with, but they're just too exspensive.
Well, hope your week is off to a good start. Take care.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Well today we packed up and left early. My knees said that they had it and I was overtired! Just can't get comfortable with that left knee at night time! So 4 and 5 hours of sleep is not enough for this ole'cowgirl! Besides rains were moving in, and it was an outdoor show! So rain is not my idea of fun either! LOL! Very happy to go Circuit Class Champion in Open Ages Mares with Paige, and just missed the Amy Sr. Mares by 3 points! Oh well next time! She did very well, hardly any screaming out of her at all. Indy was happy when I picked him up at Marissa's barn. Annie that works full time for Marissa said after he calmed down about missing his girl, he was a pleasure to be around and work with. He had daily turnout for a while in a semi-dry lot, but it had a big hay rack in it full all the time. So how much playing he did, I don't know, but he ate well, that's for sure! Good to be home, pouring rain now! Marion and the blondes.
