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.

Rocky is a "Medicine Hat" paint horse. Medicine Hat is the name applied to horses exhibiting a unique and rare pattern of color. Being mostly white in body, Medicine Hats have color on their ears and top of the head, which resembles a bonnet or hat. Color on the chest is termed a shield. Medicine Hats often have pink muzzles, and those with one or more blue eyes were especially prized.
Medicine horses blue eyes were often called Sky-eyes or Heaven-eyes and added to the mystique which surrounded them.

I sure like the sound of that...you have bits of "green grass" coming up. Gives the rest of us hope.
Was in the 20's today, but sort of windy and damp feeling. Been gone nearly all day, left for the funeral before 10, it was big, but Aunt Helen have a big family, 8 kids, and now even great great grandchildren. Uncle Andy, was in a wheelchair, but still remembers everyone. Last time I was up to see them in the nursing home, he was walking, but nursing homes don't want the old people walking fearing that they might fall.
Probably going to cut firewood tomorrow, in the morning. Dominic is here for the night, he lost in sectionals today, but still that is good.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Well started out cold 20 degrees but with bright sunshine! Never thought with the sky the way it was that we'd be getting a snow storm later on! So I took the tractor over to Kevin's and he aired up the rear tires, only to find out that the valve stems are kinda shot! So Monday when I go to town, I'll pick up two new valve stems for it. He also put my new YakTrax on my other boots for me, so now I have the old ones for softer ice, and the new ones for the bullet proof ice! Dragged the indoor really good too. Lunged Paige and did showmanship, lunged Indy and practiced setting up for halter. Bully got to free run. Gave them lunch and the took Honey for a walk. But then it had really clouded over and was getting nasty! Sure enough, right after we got home, the snow started! Almost 2 inches already when I fed tonight! Marion and the blondes.

yay got my Traks today. I'm going to need them. It was really nice this morning then about 2 the winds came in. So I got ready and went to the barn. When I got there all the horses were in. Wasn't sure if Jax was out. If he was he would have been wet. So I groomed him and we played with his brushes. He likes to bit them and hold them in his mouth. lol I put his medium weight blanket back on. It was damp in the barn with the temps going down to the teens I wanted to make sure he was warm. Sarah is buying hay. It looks okay. She said it had a lot of timothy in it. Seems more like straw. But, I may have seen a not so good bale. Right now we are having snow flurries and the water has frozen over. Vicki & Big Jax

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Well nasty rainy and then got really windy later on! Did in between the break in the rain get another 4 bales of hay to the barn and a bag of shavings for Bully! Went down my usual time to start to work them, and it was getting windy as heck out. So forwent the idea of saddling up Paige and just went with lunging and showmanship. Glad I did cause the gusts of winds were really bad! Just finished up with her and was getting Indy ready to take out and down came the rains like a giant bucket of water! So he never made it to the indoor. Rain and winds were horrible all afternoon and the temps are dropping! Going down into the teens they are saying tonight. Just lovely cause this will be a frozen mess of ice and mud out there! Oh the joys of winter! NOT! Marion and the blondes.

Is your weather still comparitvely warm? Hope you've been able to go see Rocky. Is he shedding yet?
Rode Allie again yesterday. Didn't have a lot of time and it was pretty windy, so we didn't get much done, but even a short ride is always an accomplishment. It was tee shirt weather here too, supposed to be even warmer today. We have a little green showing up in the grass, not really growing, but greenish, and the horses are doing their best to nibble at it, even though it's super short.
Well, off to work I go. Have a great friday.

Don't you just want to yell at Mother Nature and say "enough" ice! Hopefully, the next few days will turn it all into puddles, and bad memories, specially the spill you took. Here's hoping you will get in the saddle tomorrow and also for nice weather.
We were up in the 40's earlier today, watered and feed Mikey's calves and then stopped by Mom to drop off her garage tubs, (we pick up her cans and recyclables for her), cut up a tree in our pastures and by then it was getting cooler and "felt" like rain. Heard on the weather report, our snow measures are down about 7 inches, not sure if they mean that fell or what is left after 3 days of warmer weather, but tonight temps will fall down below zero again.
Tomorrow I will add more hay to the water tank for the rabbit just incase she will be having babies. Yep it takes about 28-30 days for rabbits, I remember, and still laugh about that because our kids had rabbits for 4-H, and figured they could have 12 batches of baby bunnies a year...they multiply fast enough.

Today was heaven. It made it into the high 40's. My driveway is still like glass. I went out to see Jax I cleaned his water buckets. Then I groomed him. Yay lots of hair. Spring is coming. Not sure when but its coming. We start off warm tomorrow but then the cold comes in. Jax has no blanket on but I'll go back tomorrow about 2 and put it back on. It is going from the 40's to the low teens. Then back up next week. Vicki & Big Jax

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Well no sun till late this afternoon, but the temps hit 54 degrees! WOW did it finally do a job and melt off the ice! Still have a little left in front of the barn, but everything else is clear! Of course this is going to be to make more for Sat into Sun with 4 to 6 inches of snow possible! Got 6 bales of hay to the barn. Paige lunged and showmanship, Indy lunged and halter and some showmanship work. Bullseye free lunged. Then lunch of hay and fresh water for them. Honey and I got in a mile walk too! so productive day for sure! Possible rain tonight into tomorrow, then going cold again! Up and down like a yo-yo! Good news is, my new YakTrax are here! I'm ready!

Glad you have warmed up a bit. T-shirt weather today, 76. Then cooling off. Need to hit the fed store tomorrow, won't get too much until I pick up a couple of garbage cans. I desperately need to hit Wally World, haven't been in months and will pick up a couple of metal garbage cans.

Today was nice. Felt good to have some warmth. I groomed Jax couple nights ago. I thought he was going to hit the ceiling when I did his neck. Must have felt really good. Hoping to make it out tomorrow. Hoping we don't get the rain then having the temps drop. We don't need more ice! Have a good night. Vicki & Big Jax

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Well woke up to a sheet of black ice out there! Schools were delayed for 60 to 120 minutes and accidents all over the place. Kevin said the drive to work was horrible! He slide a few times too he said! So Honey and I went to the local feed store to get Bullseye's grain and they were giving out a box of heart shaped doggie cookies to every dog that came in. So you know that Honey was a happy girl. And she got to make friends with a golden named Spike! They were great together, and she loved the bunny in cage on the floor! Didn't get the kids to the indoor today. Had the chiro for that back that's still not 100% from those two ice falls! Speaking of which, got my tracking number and the new YakTrax will be here Thursday! YAY! According to a friend who called me last night, we're in for a cold icy March too! So you'll get to use them when they get there! Went and did my grocery shopping after the chiro. Tomorrow will be lunging day for sure, might even saddle up Paige, could be in the low 50's, YAY! Maybe all the rest of the ice will go away then! Marion and the blondes.

You come from a long lived family too. As long as they are not just "bed ridden", I am glad they live to a good age. My grandmother was 104 when she passed away.
Funny comic strip, Mike uses the smoke from the outdoor stove for his wind gauge. So far so good with Precious, she did want to go down into the basement with Grizzly this morning, but I am keeping an eye on her.
Took Mom into Ladysmith today, because it was so nice outside. She said she could not see wasting the day doing cross word puzzles. She had to pick up her pills, and it was a nice day. Mother Nature really outdid herself.....I take back all....well, some of the nasty things I said about her. :). Seen 41 one time and NO wind, and plenty of sunshine. Hopefully, we did not hog all this good weather and some of it will reach the east coast, so if it gets to Paige, Rocky, and Big Jax, remember the Queen Whisper had a little hoof in it.
Hear my guinea hen trying to sing in the basement again. Took the female rabbit back outside, a few days ago, I noticed some hair clumps, like as if making a nest. I was way below zero then, but not babies, which I did not think so, because she was never loose when the male rabbit was out, but I remember your theory about having 2 girls or 2 boys and suddenly there are these "magical" baby bunnies. Still watching Mary's doe, because her goat Cindy Lou, did let the male out. It was the night of Mom's birthday bingo party Jan. 20th, so I have marked the calendar on Feb. 17 just to start watching.

Glad you're warming up a bit. Day started out kind of miserable, heavy fog and drizzle, then sun came out around noon and it warmed up to 69, supposed to be mid 70's tomorrow. Was so nice to be outside without a jacket, I'm sure Jazz was glad to her blanket off. Having trouble with my feed, I've stored bags on pallets for years and never had any trouble, now the mice are tearing into the bags. It's such a long drive to the feedstore that carries the Thrive that I try to pick up a month's worth at a time, may have to invest in more garbage cans to store it.

If you can just hang in there another day or two, I will send you some warmer weather, I see you said 40's tomorrow. We got into the 20's today, but Mother Nature never plays nice....warmer weather but bitterly strong winds. I had to take Precious up to the vet for her spraying appointment and drove threw "long white wind snakes" nearly all the way there, nearly 20 miles of dead snow snakes now. Some places it was like a big spot of snow was on the road. I have one ear that seems even with a tight cap on must have gotten wind in it. Mike had to drive Mikey to Wausau for his appointment....to check out his bladder for cancer. He said test were all OK.
Precious is still sleeping, put her in a big pet taxis for the night. She did not want any water or food, in the morning I have another pill to give her. For once she looks so cuddly and not a holy tear.
Tomorrow it should be warmer, maybe 40's, hear this morning on the radio that we have been 14 degree below normal, sure did not need them to tell me that.

HI Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Well we got beautiful strong sunshine with a high of 35 degrees! Sure helped to melt off a lot more of that ice! I'd say the walk way to the barn is now 80% clear! YAY! From the barn to indoor is all clear now. Just out to the water dumping area is a big mess yet, but that's in the shade! So hopefully Wed with temps hitting the mid 40's and sun again, that will deplete a little more. Got the kids to the indoor for exercise! Paige was like BatChit Crazy on the line! Boy did she throw some good bucks in! Bet if felt good to her! Indy started on the line, then went and got free lunged! He too was full of himself. Bullseye was quiet and I had to chase him with the lunge whip! LOL! Lazy Ass! Literally! LOL! Then they got hay and fresh water for lunch. Honey and I got a little walk in, only about 1/2 mile total. But still felt good! Marion and the blondes.

No rain for us, just a bit of fine mist this AM, but rain every day in the 10 day. Wondered why we didn't get trash pickup last week, Scott called and they came by Wed. They have been picking up between noon and 3, yesterday I saw the truck go by at 7:45. Guess they have changed the route, so will have to be sure to get it out on Sunday.

Hope your week has gotten off to a good start.
A Tacky friend (who incidently shows cutting horses) has her little Tacky gelding in driving school (that sounds funny). She put up a video of him out driving down a dirt road and he looked REALLY good. He's a liver chestnut with 2 hind stockings, so kinda flashy, and that long sweepy Tacky trot was covering some serious ground.
Well, not sure what today looks like, weather wise. I heard it was almost 70 yesterday though very overcast. Anyway, have a great tuesday.

Blue must make everyone feel better. Does Blue like popcorn, Sadie is sitting here and begging with her eyes for a piece ...its air popped so no salt. The pellet stove is on again tonight, will be -10 or so, not sure what we had this morning, radio said -17, with slight wind.
Funeral is on Saturday for my aunt, Helen, she was 95 nearly 96. Today was not too bad outside, got up to 11-12, maybe more, but I very seldom check how cold it is, just look to see if there is wind. I do that by looking at the flower stems in the flower beds to see if they are moving....real scientific way. :)

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Glad that the roads cleared up by the afternoon and you were able to get done what needed to be done. Oh that's good news that your mom is feeling better now! I bet Blue was a hit at the nursing home, he's so cute and smart! Well not much more melted overnight even though the temps were in the high 40's! They did drop to 34 at morning, so that kinda froze it all up again! Spread another bag of ice melt down by the barn to the indoor, but as of 1 pm not enough melted off to get them to the indoor for exercise. So got another bag and laid that down again! Plus had to put some on the walk way down to the barn! Sun finally came out, but not long enough to make a big difference in melting it! And tonight it's going down to 15 degrees, so it'll freeze back up! GRRR! But made the best of it and got Bullseye all trimmed up, done for another 8 weeks or so! Marion and the blondes.

That's great that you got your critter time this weekend too. Bet it was good to do that, and even Blue get some down time at the barn.
We wound up with 3/4 inch from that system before it slid east of us. Talk about mud! And wish me luck, I'm back at work today.

Hope Blue enjoys this nursing home visits as much as the older people enjoy him.
Today the wind was up a bit, only -9 but felt colder this morning. Spent a few hours with Mom today, after we got home found out my Aunt Helen had died last night, Mom must not have know yet, or she would have mentioned it. She and Uncle Ray were the last 2 children out of 14 on my Dad's side. I think she is or near 90. She had the flu and has been in the nursing home for a few years, with her husband Andy. He is one of the last survivors of WWII.
Dominic took 2nd in his weight class in Sectionals on Saturday, so next will be Regionals, (next Saturday the 17th) and if he wins 1st or 2nd will go on to State. I keep telling I am still tougher than him with my puny little muscles. Last time I told him that, he picked me up off the floor and was going to throw me out in the deepest snowbank....but I cried "uncle".

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Well the rains were here all day long! Don't have the rain gauge out cause it's the type that will bust when frozen! But figure about 1.5 inches at least. Will see what the local weather station says later. So the ice is horrible! It's not melting fast enough and the walk down to the barn and indoor is not good at all! YakTrax are holding me steady however! Kids didn't get anywhere today! So lunch of hay and fresh water! Kevin got here about noon and we fixed the tines on the York Rake, and then he helped me clean up the one mat in Indy's stall that always builds up with bedding! He holds it up and out of the way standing on it and I scrap out all the urine soaked mess, Indy's a bit of a pig like that! LOL! That's done now for about a month or so!

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Well the rains held off till later this afternoon! YAY! Actually spent the morning cleaning the house! Yes I said house, I hate house work! But the Honey hair was mounting! Got the tractor out and scraped off more of the driveway and gravel driveway, still has more ice, but not to bad now! Got 3 bales of hay to the barn, wanted to take another load, but it was slick going down that little hill and even the YakTrax weren't grabbing the softer snow and mush! So not chancing slipping and pulling my own tendons on my knees! Got the kids to the indoor for some playtime too! Well Lunging and halter work. Finished up with hay and fresh water for them at about 3 pm. That's just when it started to rain and it hasn't stopped yet! But last check out the window before it got dark, it melted off a lot more of the ice/snow combo out there! Marion and the blondes.

We had a sunny warm day yesterday, I think it hit 60. I got Dee's hinds trimmed, they really only needed a light rasping. She tends to drag her toes a little so that she squares them off, so I rasped them back into a more normal shape.
Well, hope you have a great weekend. Stay safe and dry.

The only time I sing is when the music is loud, like in Church. Mostly, I silently sing along with songs. Glee Club was the only class I got a C in.
Horses starting to shed for you, mean spring will be coming.....sometime this year. Hurry Spring!! Today was not bad, but only in the single digits, but we had no wind and Mr. Sun was out. Still light out now and nearly 6, sun is coming up early in the morning....not sure what time, cause my eyes are not open enough to tell time yet.
Chicken are finally earning their keep, got 5 eggs today, usually its one or two all winter, and they come frozen. No duck or geese eggs yet. End of February they "should" start.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Well weather men screwed it up again! First two days ago they said 40% chance of snow today, then yesterday they said sun! Well it started out sunny for like an hour, then overcast and an hour later! SNOW! Snowed all day long, but that light slow snow, so only about 3/4 inch out there now! Tomorrow 60% chance of rain and Sunday rain all day, but temps will be in the mid 40's! So they kids got a spa day today. Lunch of hay of course and fresh water. Honey and I just hung out together all day long in the house! Just felt damp and raw, even with the wood burner going full blast, I just couldn't get the place as warm as I like!

If you have the agility class this weekend be careful. I hear we are getting sleet and rain. :( City came and took the snow away this morning. Which is good, we have another storm on the way. Plus my dead end street is barely big enough for two cars when roads are clear. With all this snow it was a single lane. Went out this morning and checked on Jax. He came trotting up to me. Of course, I had his treats. He looks great. Glad he was out in the big paddock. He can trot around and roll. I know there is ice under but we have so much snow it can't hurt him. Came home to clean streets and just in time here comes the snow. So I am in for the night. Vicki & Big Jax

Come visit me, Big Jax.

We've had a couple warm sunny days since the rain moved out, but it's still very muddy, so no horse time. I did scrub them a bit with the curry comb yesterday, though it didn't help much. A vacuum would probably do the trick. They're all shedding now, so spring has gotta be on its way, right?

I bet you are crossing off the days until spring, will be like Christmas excitement then, hope it is not one of those, springs where it gets hot, then drops down to be low zero, and gets rainy and cold.
Is Blue learning any new things?? Sadie learned today that geese can bite.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Well what a frozen tundra out there this morning! OMG! About 1/2 ice on top of the wet now kinda frozen snow, with what rain could make it to the bottom, was more ice! Was able to get the big gate open to the entrance pasture to the barn. So after it warmed up and some of the blacktop of the driveway was melting, I figured I'd give it a try! Got the tractor out of the hay barn and headed down to the horse barn with the York Rake dropped to break it up! Got out to the manure pile too, and then from the barn to the indoor and the pass through indoor door! YAY! But on the way back up, hit a heavy spot of ice and busted 2 teeth off the York Rake, so some fixing to do over the weekend! But was able to safely walk them to the indoor for some much needed lunging! Both were a little full of themselves! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Goodness, glad you got home okay. Hope they cancelled or at least delayed school today; I bet the roads will be worse this am.
We got an inch and a half of rain yesterday, so super muddy. I had doubts about my new waterproof boots, but they're doing pretty good. They sank into ankle deep mud and water several times and my socks stayed cleanish. Needless to say, no horse time. Any future horse time is going to involve some serious elbow grease and a curry comb, lol.

That much snow is enough at one time, hope the rain does not show up. Weird winter weather is sure "weird" this winter. :) We did get up to 8 today, but no wind so was not bad outside. Hauled loose hay from the round bales into the geese and ducks, they sure make short work out of flattening it all down. Will have to give more wood chips and sawdust tomorrow, with the water pan inside at night, the splash it all over, and it freezes down the woodchips. But they need water to keep their nose clean otherwise it get plugged up with grain and junk. Usually, they go threw about 8 gallons of water....not all get drank, mostly just splashing around.
