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.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Oh I bet that Blue and Shiva will be very happy to have new beds! Well washout at the tack sale today. Made a whopping $6. Oh well, did donate a pair of boots and a showmanship outfit to the South Jersey 4-H club. Everyone was donating stuff they just got tired of lugging from sale to sale and didn't sell! So they made out with everything from very high end show outfits, to a silver show halter and chaps, and so much more! Packed up early and went to lunch with a friend that shows with us, well her daughter does, Jill is close to my age, nice to have an adult to talk with about trainer issues! LOL! Marion and the blondes.

How was the adoption clinic? Is this a good time of year for it, right around the holidays?
We're getting some wonderful rain again today, maybe into tuesday. God's way of making me behave and do inside chores, lol. I got Allie's feet trimmed yesterday and then rode BJ just a little instead of decorating or wrapping the few presents I've gotten. Oh well. Off to work. Hope you have a great sunday.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. First let me say, my email at 6:15 had me in tears. We are all sorry to hear of the loss of Charlie Bubbles, beloved equine partner of Donna Lee! Our Prayers go out to her! Just a few weeks ago the loss of Dear Cheryl's beloved Nugget, and now Charlie! So sad! On a lighter side, I did sell 4 items today at the tack sale netting $113.00. So that made me feel good. Back over tomorrow and see if I can't see a few more things. It was cold in the indoor and after a few hours I was feeling it, know to use my BOT long johns for sure tomorrow! Got home by 3:30 and gave the horses some hay for lunch and fresh water. Now in the house trying to defrost! LOL! Marion and the blondes.

Sorry I missed Rocky's HOTM win! Congrats to you both!~~~

Hi everyone! Sorry I have been away so long. I haven't been on since my retirement, I think. I know I've missed out on a lot of news. Hope all is well with each of you and your horses. Sorry to hear that HC will be closing down. I do enjoy hearing all the horse stories. My heard and I are doing well. Just been catching up on a lot of work that needed to be done. I am loving the extra time with my herd. Praying you all have a blessed holiday. Leaving votes all around.

My heart and prayers are with Donna Lee and Sterl May today after their tragic loss of Charlie Bubbles. He was euthanized early this morning due to colic. The vet had been out several times and he continued to get worse.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Well another deceiving day weather wise. Started out sunny and that fell to pieces! But I did get hay to the barn. Got them lunged! And got the truck all packed with my goodies that are going to be for sale at the tack sale at Marissa's! Refilled all the boxes in the garage with dry wood, so there's a couple of days supply again if it gets to raining hard. Which they are talking about now for next Tues thru Thurs! With a mix of snow! Not happy! Marion and the blondes.

I hope the dog adoption goes well this weekend! It is that time of year that it is hit or miss on riding. I thought we may be able to ride Sunday afternoon but now that it is Friday it is looking like that won't happen :( I am off work the next 3 days. Deacon has his annual shots and checkup on Monday. I will remind them to split the shots to make it less hurtful and keep him from being sore on one side. I dewormed him on Wednesday and he had his hooves trimmed last week so he is good to go when ever this weather allows us some riding time. Have a wonderful weekend ♡

Come visit me, ♥ Deacon ♥.

Yes, vehicles always want a bunch of attention and money spent on them. Hope it's an easy fix for her. Also hope the dog adoption goes well tomorrow.
Didn't quite get time to ride yesterday, the daylight is just so short. But I did spend time with them during feedings and brought BJ up for a hoof trim. Their hooves change so much when the weather goes from dry to wet, so they all will need some attention.
Well, off to work. Hope you have a great friday. Take care

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Sorry to hear that your daughter is having truck troubles! Hope it's an easy fix! Well it started out sunny for a couple of hours and got nasty then! Cloudy and windy and the temps were dropping. So a trip to Wally World grocery shopping was first. Then lunged Paige and did showmanship with her. Lunged Indy and we played then, he loves to play chase with me. And he's very gentle and won't charge ya. Hayed and watered them for lunch. No walk for Honey, just some playtime in the indoor also. She can run like the wind! Tomorrow I'll move stuff I want to sell from the old trailer and the tack room and house to the truck for Sat & Sun tack sale at Marissa's! Hopefully make a few bucks! LOL!

I was impressive with Hobby Lobby, somewhat....but over whelming. So many choices. I had fun reading all the signs and posters. I was looking for chains to put some horse charms on for Christmas gifts. Found a cute little deer/buck ornament for Dominic, since he was the only one to get a buck this season. To do the work on Mikey's denture, would take 4 hours, so went to Farm and Fleet, and filled nearly all the animals Christmas list. Grizzly got canned cat food, Sadie wanted more treats and of course more dog food, Shadow got a soft bed, that I used coming home. Whisper, Willow and Mistit got more treats. Brought mineral blocks for cows and one for new Highlanders and Jack. Menards next stop and Mike got some things he wanted, and I brought fuzzy socks for any littler (teenagers) girls that I know....they will also get a necklace with horse charm. Picked up decks of kids card games, for any younger kids that stop here. See when Mikey was home, all his friends would come here, well, most of them have kids that came along, so now they stop to tell us Merry Christmas and I always have a little gift for kids and a box of homemade cookies and candies for them to take home. If I see them in a store, they always stop and chat and ask about the horses and animals....my reward....even if I never remember what their names are. They grow up so fast and change in looks.

Enjoyed having Rocky as our Nov king. Passed the scepter along to Cisco, huh?
Hope your week is going well. It'll be busy between now and the end of the year.
We were blessed with more rain last evening, though there were a few tornadoes in the area. They finally lifted the burn ban and I think those awful wildfires in the Tennessee mountains got a good dousing.
Well, hope you have a great thursday. Take care.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. You were a great King of Nov! Carrots all around! Well not much happened today either! Rain all day and very heavy at times! And of course those times where just when I would go to the barn to try to get to the indoor. Scraped that idea. Did a spa day, hayed and watered them. Honey got lot's of mommy and me time today for sure in the house! Yesterday we got 1.5 inches of rain and I bet at least that again today. Will check the rain gauge in the morning after it stops sometime during the wee hours of the night. Supposed to be sunny tomorrow! Marion and the blondes.

Going to take our son Mikey, to dental lab this morning and will get to go to Hobby Lobby, so I can start and finish the rest of my projects. Have to be there at 7:30 so up very early to do chores in the dark. I sure hope my studip guineas made it threw the night. They would not go into the shed last night.

Poor Rocky, one just wasn't enough, lol. Did he give you a pitiful look for only one? Of course, they give you a pitiful look after 15 too.
We did wind up getting some rain yesterday which was much appreciated. Didn't ride, of course, but had a fun day Christmas shopping with my niece and daughter.
Well, off to work. Hope you have a great wednesday.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Well it rained cats and dogs today! So this morning, Honey and I headed downtown to fuel up the truck and pick up my allergy prescription at the drugstore. Don't ya think, I get all the way to the gas station, get out and go to give him my credit card, only to find out I forgot to put my money clip in my work jeans. So all the way back to the farm and then back downtown, Honey was happy, extra ride in the truck! Got home and it's still pouring, so made some Sesame Chicken in the crock pot, not bad! Didn't do anything with the horses, as the rain and nasty weather made my ear act up. So hayed and watered them and back to the house and Honey and I crashed in bed for a couple of hours! Lazy day! Marion and the blondes.

Looks like spring outside, with all the mud. Let chickens and guineas out, they have not gotten to go out, not that they even wanted to with the rain, wind and cold/snow. Steers and Whisper, Willow and Mistic returned to the big field, if not for eating, just for a good gallop. They have lots of room to run inside their winter and the pen I put them in at night, but with that many hooves also too much mud right now.

Kinda the same with my kids. Neither one got the horse bug at all; my daughter loves animals but mostly dogs and especially cats. My son is making noises about wanting a dog, now that he's been on his own and without an animal for 2 years. However, he's thinking about starting school, so he'd move back home while he goes to tech, and then move to Columbia to finish up at the university. And I have no room for any more animals of any kind, lol.
I had a good ride on Allie sunday. I rode again yesterday but the horses were on edge, guess they could feel the storm front coming. So I got off while I had a head left and lunged her around briskly. I was proud of her though, that's the first time I've been on her while the buddy horse I have to have in the riding ring for moral support (in this case BJ) was running around her bucking and galloping, and she didn't try too hard to join in on the play.
Well, we had 2 days of rain predicted. As usual, it's parting as it gets to us, so we might get a little, but not much and it'll be gone in an hour or 2. Do I sound like I'm having a pity party? After 3 months of almost no rain, to finally have a big storm headed our way and still not get hardly anything is just too disappointing. The fires reached Gatlinburg, TN last night, burning up cottages, hotels, and homes, and they had to evacuate, which is horrible. We desperately need days of real rain.
Well, on that note, need to get the day started. Hope you have a great tuesday.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Well HC is back up and running! YAY! What a day, sunny and made it up to 48 degrees. Actually had the horses out this afternoon for the little grass that's out there! Had an awesome ride on Paige! Honey and I got our walk in. And my sinuses on the left side are getting better. Rest Fri, Sat and most of Sunday helped a lot. Did talk with the nurse at my doctor's office, she said unless I have mucus with color, he won't do any meds, just take it easy and hopefully it won't progress to my full blown mess I get! Rain the next few days, so I'll be getting rest then for sure! Marion and the blondes.

Finally got on to HC, but now no time. So here is a vote and hug from my little herd.
Spent most of the morning getting bags and bags of nice dry sawdust/woodchips, not really sawdust. Then filling up the two pig houses with it. Everything and everywhere is mud and wet. Yesterday temps were in the 40's, and of course the snow melted, just like Frosty the snowman. So now all that is left is the puddle and mud. Then in the afternoon, went to get a few things from the grocery store, mostly milk....because some kitten and her friends plus Sadie and Shadow, expect milk at every meal.
