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.

Don't you just love a slow lope? BJ and Gracie both do one, at least in the riding ring. They are a lot faster on a trail. We survived our loping yesterday. I put her on a big loose rein and just let her lope wherever she wanted to while I rubbed and talked to her, and she did okay. She even stopped when I said whoa. I think she's been worried about me pulling on her, so I tried to leave the reins alone, for the most part. I had put Dee in the riding ring for moral support and she was being extra witchy, so we had to steer around her a few times, lol.
Well, hope you have a great weekend.

Come visit me, Allie & BJ and his mom,Gracie.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Thank you for the link, I'll check it out tomorrow for Honey and I. Shame you didn't have a record of all his visits with your Mom! First let me say, that Sheryl and Cisco's herd all send their regards! We spoke before and all is well with her and the herd! Well rain again and much colder and damp! Fired up the wood burner to take the chill and dampness out of the house! I did get Paige lunged and ridden, good ride, could tell it's cooler out, she had a little pep in her step. Nothing bad, she actually loped better for me! LOL! Of course when I went to get Indy into the indoor, the heavens opened up! So he got a spa day and his front toes rasped down a little. Then Bullseye got his front feet trimmed. Tomorrow I'll do his rears. Ran out of time and energy! Plus I wanted to eat lunch is was 3 pm! LOL! No walk for Honey today, rain all day long, sometimes light mist, sometimes down pours! Same for Sat and Sun! OHY! Marion and the blondes.

Most of the ducks and geese, along with the birds, totally leave Wisconsin. They have more sense that people. Some do stay near the open waters in southern Wis. near the Mississippi. Yesterday was so nice out. I was digging up potatoes for storeage for the winter, and Sadie was so "helpful". Well, lets just say I wish she would dig in the right places, and when I throw the bad ones in the "bad" bucket, she would leave them there. Today wwe just got back from hauling in firewood. We go where they have cut and take the limbs, or stumps that are left. Lots of heavy wood and long walks caring one or two pieces at a time. You can not back the truck up to the pile, so to speak. You haul and carry. You sure get your excise and I will find out tomorrow what muscles I forgot to use. Not really, I very seldom get sore, but I do listen to Mike's complains.

Can't believe it's the last day of sept already! I'm loving the cooler weather (52 this am) but not looking forward to the time change. It's really a challenge to get the critters fed in the evening so early.
The field trip yesterday was fun. My favorite was the blacksmith, I wouldn't mind giving that a try.
Rode Allie yesterday, and she was right back to always trying to go faster and worrying about it when we did. Gotta figure out what to do about that. I'm thinking we're gonna have to do a ton of loping till she realizes it's not the end of the world, it just makes her tired. And pray she doesn't buck or run wide open in the process.
Well, hope you have a great friday. Take care.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Is there a web site or something to look up what Honey would need to know and do so someday we could apply for the CGC testing? Well it took the better part of close to 90 minutes to get the replacement phone up and running! I had a lot of issues with my music and photos transferring over. And all my additional apps I have, had to wait till I was home and able to sign into my WIFI! Went grocery shopping and got home just in time to do lunch for the horses. Since it had rained overnight and this morning it was too wet out. And it was threatening to rain any minute again. Plus cold and damp! But they don't mind staying in with nice green hay and fresh water. Honey and I did get a walk in, I took an umbrella just in case! Then my wood man called and he was on his way with a 2 cord load. So now I have stacking to do too! But since the lawn and pastures don't need mowing, I can use that time to stack wood! Marion and the blondes.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Okay Blue, way to go! I eventually was thinking of Honey going for her Canine Good Citizen training also. She would be a great therapy dog, loves people! Glad that you've got a bike up and working. Wish I could pedal one, but not with my knees! Darn! Well had the dentist bright an early this morning. WOW he did two teeth, almost a two hour job, but do they look great! Two more to go on the next visit in two weeks and I'm done. That's a fast Grand! Stopped on the way home at Home Depot to pick up a storage rack for the garage, naturally only had the floor model left! Said I'll take it! It had a couple of small dings in it, (really didn't care) but asked for a discount, they took $10 off the price and said if I apply for their credit card, I get another $25 off. So I got a chrome four shelf rack for under $6! Love that after my dental expense! LOL! Got home and turned them over, very overcast and chilly, sheets on! Honey and I went for our walk. Came home and did another hour's work on my outdoor arena. It's getting there! About 70% weed and grass free. Hope the snow don't fly before I finish! LOL! Marion and the blondes.

Thank You for sending Mistit a vote of congratulations for being HOTD.
I just wish she would have her foal. She still is fat belly wise and has milk. I wish it did not 150 dollar farm call to have the vet come out, but she does not seem stressed or off feed, runs around with Willow and Whisper. So, if it a fault PG, then I will know soon.
Rained all day long yesterday, not hard just light rain, and wind, temps were around 44, so fall is certainly here. Geese are heading your way, been so cloudy, but I can hear them. Caterpillars are everywhere, it seems I am always putting them out of harms way, so they do not get stepped on or ran over.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Well it rained last night and was pretty wet this morning. That's good, pastures needed it. But to wet to work on more de-weeding the outdoor arena, tractor would have really made a bigger mess and I wasn't about to do it by hand! LOL! Got a nice ride in on Paige. Everyone got turned out for the afternoon, sunny and 72 degrees! No humidity! Honey and I got our walk in too. And FedEx got here with my replacement Galaxy S5, now just have to have all my data transferred over and send back the broken one. I can still make calls and receive calls on the other one, just the screen goes black most of the time and you don't know what's going on! Marion and the blondes.

Sorry I wasn't on for Ace's HOTD. Thank you all so much for the love. We are having some beautiful weather for a change. Can't wait for my days off so I can visit with my horses. They are all doing great. Ace has healed. I did get him some bell boots for when we work and ride him. I have never had to use bell boots before. Ace kept lifting his feet up when I tried them on. Guess he will get use to them. Have a great week everyone!

If I could afford to move out on my own, be able to take my animals, I'd have moved out by now. Rick hates my cats. He fusses about Sadie, too. Not nice to Scruffy, either. I know God will deal with him. There's a black dog, female, very sweet, in the neighborhood. She may have been tossed out by some ahole. She was in my yard, Monday night, treeing some of my cats. Rick took a large rock and knocked one of the cats out of the tree. He fell, the dog chased him. He got away, escaping through the fence. Austin and I were both upset. I went out back with Sadie. Rick and Austin went out back with Rick yelling and cussing us. I stayed in the corral to get away from the argument between Rick and Austin. Sadie, who doesn't bite, was listening to him and started biting at me. When Mr. Flapping lips came down to where we were, I made a quick job of telling his butt what's what. He shut up. He paced the yard for a while, then started apologizing to us. His mom has stomach cancer, again. I know this and other things, are weighing on him, but too much is too much. I pointed out that he's not the only one with issues and not the only one with a heavy heart. Guess he thought about it and felt bad. He needs therapy. We probably all do. Proud of myself for the way I handled it. I gave Sadie some love and carrots. Loved on my cats and Scruffy, too. He wasn't in the line of fire, but heard it. Trusting God. I have to. Love my home. It's a blessing. Praying for tomorrow. Thank you for being there. Love and a vote. <3

HI Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Well today kinda fell apart with all I had planned to do! Didn't ride cause I knew that Tim was supposed to be coming and we'd be de-cobbing the barn. Well half an hour before he's supposed to be here, he calls and has something wrong with the EGR Valve on the truck. No can come! Oh well, onto plan B! I dragged the indoor and then went and started to work on the outdoor arena. It has become grown over in grassy type weeds. I have my work cut out for me. Got about 1/4 of it done. Then turned out the horses, in sheets, since our weather finally turned to fall temps. I de-cobwebbed Paige's stall and along all the stall fronts. Honey and I went for our 2 mile walk and then home to watch Football, yep Giants sucked and lost and now the Jets are taking a beating too! Oh well! Marion and the blondes.

Saturday was a long work day. I'm only working weekends, for now, because work is slow, so Saturday was a blessing. Need to pick up some Freedom 45. The flies are awful. I feel bad for Tracy's burros. They're so wild, she can't do anything but feed and water them. Too wild to get close enough to to treat for flies. They'll come up to her for the animal crackers she buys them, but for nothing else. Glad Sadie's sociable. I'd be hurt if she didn't allow me to do things for her. She's such a brat but a good girl, too. She thinks a conversation is suppose to include her. Leaving lots of love and a vote from us.

HI Rocky, here's a vote for ya. I bet those pups were glad to see their mommy! Oh good news that you found the missing barn cat, and he'll be okay. Bet he's not happy wearing that collar! Good way to end the night, a trail ride! Well it was cool, only 50 this morning, but went up to 86 and the humidity got a little thick! I detailed and waxed Beast this morning. Then did some showmanship with Paige inside, it was sticky in there. Glad I wasn't riding. Went downtown for a few things, swear that the truck drives better when it's all shiny! LOL! Got home and turned them out. Took Honey for our 2 mile walk. Half way on the return part, that idiot kid two doors over started shooting skeet again! Honey was a wreck, not fun trying to walk a scared to death dog! Got to the house and the horses had been running up a storm from the shotgun fire! Both were dripping wet with sweat and I couldn't even bring them up to hose them off! They were still shooting and I know I would get trampled! If it happens again tomorrow, it's State Police time!

Still raining on and off, lots of flood warnings out, but mostly to in the southern part of Wis. Trees are putting on their colorful leaves, and winds are really getting stronger, so they may not last long. October is the the big month for color, but we have had snow already in September, (not this yr yet).
We are starting to cut firewood, nothing major, because had to fix the chainsaw. Rain I enjoy, but hate the mud, clay mud is sticky and deep, so far, its been not too bad. We are waiting for it to dry out, so far has not happened all summer. Want to push dirty up against the barn to plug up some holes at the base of the cement blocks. Have some projects, like change the side door in the Menard shed, where the young birds are, plus hay, and hopefully a pen for ????

The last day of barn duty, huh? Blue is gonna miss it. Hope your daughter had a great time on her vacation.
It was even winder yesterday and all the horses were goosey, so I just did groundwork. Even then, she spooked and scooted around several times. You know how scary it is having all those crouching tigers stalking in the grass and trees, lol.
The Italian circus was fun. It was pretty small, maybe only 15 performers in all, but they were all amazing and the whole thing was quite entertaining. Madison was amazed at what they could do, especially the high wire routine (she hates hights).
Well, off to work. Hope you have a great friday.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. I bet you're happy she's coming home! LOL! Little less to worry about fitting into an already tight day! Another gorgeous day out today! Did get warmer, about 83 degrees, but no humidity really. Got Paige lunged and rode again. She was as soft as butter today! Did her 360's in place level headset off my legs only, backed the L beautifully too, and side passed so softly! We called it quits after like 20 minutes. I didn't even lope her, wanted her to know that it's not all hard work! Came up while she was on the wall and washed the Beast! Truck really needed it. Then went and turned them out. Paige got the front of the barn pasture, more grass there! She deserved it! Took Honey on our 2 mile walk then. Came home and then vacuumed out the truck, now tomorrow I'll wax it. That'll be done for the winter, or maybe one more time if Oct/Nov isn't to cold to wax. Or I'll drive it into the hay barn and do it in there! Marion and the blondes.

Allie did okay in the bigger area yesterday. It was a bit windy and she was kinda tight and fast. At one point, she spooked and took off. You can't turn or stop her in that situation, so I hung on and rubbed her neck and talked to her till she stopped. Sigh. At least she didn't buck. We finished the ride with tons of trotting till she got a little tired. I'm hoping today is better.

Amazing what a little A$$ kicking will do to make them remember you can do this! LOL! Mowed the entire lawn and then turned them out. Broke for lunch then. After I had a nice salad with all the fixin's, Honey and I headed out for our walk. Did close to 2 miles again today. I think that'll be our entire walk all the time. By then we're both out of steam and have our tongues hanging! LOL! Thinking tomorrow will be wash and detail the truck! Beast needs a good cleaning and maybe even a vacuuming!

Sadie has been here a bit over a week, seems like it has been longer. Mike takes her with him, when ever he is picking up Dominic, which that guy loves. She listens good,....so far as long as no cats are around. Angel doesn't run so he is no fun for Sadie. But the two cats from the rescue run, but I see they just hide and she gives up.
Fast voting so I can get a few more jobs done this morning. Going to rain the next few days, so what to get the garden veggies out. If it rains, then will work out in the shed picking up the mess that it is being coming with never putting things back and just adding more in the wrong place. I guess 99% are my projects that are not finished yet.

I've kept my Manna Pro fly spray in my hay shed. I've had it for so long, summer heat, etc., I didn't think it would work, but When I sprayed Sadie with it, Monday, the fart'n flies went away. My friend, Tracy, has 2 burros that she adopted. They're wild. When I visited Saturday, the flies were attacking their eyes. So sad. She can't get near them to put on spray or fly masks. After Star went blind in both eyes from glaucoma, I'm careful to keep Sadie's protected with her fly mask. Tracy seems to have more flies at her place than I do. Going to leave lots of love and a vote.
