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.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. What a day yesterday! Wish the weather could hold like this for the rest of the year! Yes year, right till New Years! High was about 63 with strong sunshine, felt great! Had another great ride on Paige, worked on flexing and staying on the arc in circles with just the corner of that eye showing to me and then flexing her neck and face to the outside in the same direction. Walking and later jogging, she was so supple! Everyone got turned out then, up to 40 minutes, will increase again today. Anthony and I got the trailer all done, 2 hours! But she's ready! Have to check the fridge, I forgot to see if it got cold inside! Silly me. Today is about the same weather wise, so it's another ride on Paige for sure! Then turnout time for them! Walk for Honey too of course. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

How was Rocky after his winter off? It's so nice to have a solid horse who's the same day after day. How did Blue do in agility?
We had showers move in yesterday afternoon so I didn't get any horse time. Pulled enough hair off Cinni to cover another pony. Anyway, hope your week gets off to a good start.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Hope that Blue enjoyed his agility on Sat. Now it's Sunday and your turn to ride, yippy! WOW what a day yesterday! Temps hit close to 60 with just a mild breeze! Got my ride in on Paige, she's a dream to ride! Love that mare! Then they went out on pasture for 30 minutes. I did give them only 1 flake of hay when they came in, cause 30 minutes of nothing really growing in the pastures was more for outside time in fresh air! Will do the same today and the next couple of days. Rain moves in on Wed and cooler temps again! My friend Anthony is coming up today to help with un-winterizing the L/Q trailer. So that'll be ready to go. And I have to turn the refrigerator on and make sure that's going to be okay. It's the new one and I don't want any surprises when I start to stock it up. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Sure hope you get to ride today and the weather is nice.
Our day was really pretty yesterday. I got my errands done and then rode Allie out in the pasture. We did more of the trot to walk and lope to walk transitions involving circles. She doesn't like to walk for long. She did pretty good, especially considering a neighbor was shooting a muzzle loader type rifle, and those things are really loud, made us both jump.
Well, hope you hae a great suday.

HI Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Well the winds yesterday would have blown you out of the saddle, even in the indoor! OMG they got horrible! And of course never did get past 45 degrees with a chill factor of 37! So today so far it's sunny and no wind to speak of. So if the weathermen are right and it goes up to 58 today, it'll be nice. Plans are today for sure a ride, yesterday was just lunge in that insane wind! Might even be able to get them out then to pasture for their 30 minutes. I know they will love it! So will my hay bill! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Oh, I hope you do get to ride tomorrow. It's not good luck to look forward to it too much, but I hope it works out. Will this be the first ride since winter set in?
Not much here. I have a lot of running around to do today, hoping to squeeze some horse time in somewhere. BJ, Gracie, and Cinni are spending a lot of time on the dry lot with a little hay morning and night on the days I work, a little pasture time on the days I'm off. They haven't lost much weight, but Cinni is moving nicely (she founders easily and is often a little sore). Been reading up on horse nutrition and it's scary how easy it is to sugar overload a horse, even with just hay. Oi!
Well, hope you have a great weekend and your wet her improves.

Sure hope you get the warmer weather. Cisco may have run Sunset thru the fence. The mares were all in heat this week and acting like idiots. Got the fence fixed, did some cleanup, hosed Sunset's knee (looking a bit better and still sound on it) and worked Lilly. Rain in the forecast tomorrow. Scott got the car back, so will hit the feed and grocery stores tomorrow.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Yep, supposed to be a nice weekend and even Monday too I think. Well would you believe that at 1 pm yesterday as I walked out of the house to go work the horses, it's sleeting and snowing combo out there! So decided to just make it a spa day in the warm barn! Today so far it's 34 degrees, but the sun is trying to come out. And they are saying 50 degrees maybe. Yeah right! You haven't been right on temps in a long time weathermen! Have to make a trip to Tractor Supply for a bunch of stuff. Honey will be very happy to go along. Hopefully by 1 pm today it'll be warmer and I can work with the kids! Getting a little warmer each day, so maybe the riding will be Sat and Sun for sure then. Glad that Paige knows her job and is in good shape from lunging all winter, so she'll be ready for Horsemanship at the show next month regardless of how much riding I do right now. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

It was an absolutely beautiful day here, not a cloud in the sky, still just kinda breezy. I did some chores outside but didn't get to ride though I did trim BJ's fronts. Also, the vaccines arrived, so I'll give them in the next few days.
Well, hope you have a great friday.

Long, long day yesterday. Got the horses up for the farrier, noticed Sunset's L knee was really swollen. Found her in the yard Tues AM, knew she had to have jumped or crashed thru the fence, but didn't notice anything wrong. Crashed was the operative word. She's not at all sore on it. Farrier got everyone trimmed, teeth floated (no sedative needed). Got Sunset's knee hosed down - for a wonder she let me do it. Vet came out and examined her, said no puncture, just an abrasion and to do cold hosings twice a day. the only trouble Sunset gave all day was about her shots. Scott had a long day too, he left to get the car repaired early in the morning and didn't get home till 5, with a loner car. Ours still isn't ready.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. So Hailey thought she was going on vacation to your house with Blue, they are too cute! Bet they all loved the carrots mixed with their grain last night! Well it's rain today and yes they said a possibility of it becoming snow tonight when the temps drop again! So over this already! I wonder if we'll ever have spring or summer? Got them lunged yesterday, didn't get near as warm as they said! This is late fall weather for sure! Food shopping later this morning. Hopefully to the indoor then with them, high could be about 40 only and with the rain it's nasty out there! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Bet Blue was very happy to go to the barn with you. But his highlight was seeing his girl Hailey for sure! Well this weather is making me nuts and my animals! Yesterday snow flurries and hard at times all day long! I personally was still on stall rest after my knee injection so I didn't mind laying around the house! Today, wake up, look outside and my truck and all the roofs are covered in snow! Yep, 1/4 or more of snow! STOP! Overcast and 35 degrees right now, but supposed to go up to about 55 with some sun, we'll see about that. Game plan today is lunge and maybe ride Paige, see how that knee really feels, don't want to push it. Lunge Indy, he got his Rhino/Flu this morning along with a gram of bute. That one usually gives him a stiff neck, so he'll get bute tonight again. Honey is really wanting a walk, so hopefully a short one, once again, pamper that knee yet today. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Aw, bet it was nice to take Blue and head out to the barn. Just being at the barn makes you feel better, doesn't it?
It was much less windy yesterday though still with strong gusts, which of course, kicked up as soon as I put my foot in the stirrup. So I only rode for a few minutes and didn't really accomplish anything except to stay in one piece.

My 2 dead baby bunnies did make it. I stuck them in my bra, to help warm them up then headed back to the house and heated up water in an old fashion, hot water bottle. Brought Mama in later, and she is enjoying all the attention. But her new home is a tote, large one but still not big enough. But very cold out again tonight, water frozen solid over night in buckets. Everything looks like the "great white north". Temps should start a "slow" warm up.
Baby chicks are hatching, so I put geese eggs in the other incubator, they can not hatch in there, because of their high heads, they would burn themselves on the heating elements or get tangled in the fan. I was a day off on the chicks, but at least they are doing something even if there was spike in temperature that one day.

She's lucky to have you to take over feeding when she isn't there. Windy today, but not as bad as last week. Got some more trimming & grooming done on Jazz and groomed and worked Lilly. Both the farrier and vet will be out tomorrow.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Glad that Blue enjoyed his agility classes and had a fun time! WOW tick's are out already! I too couldn't get on yesterday, kept timing out! Thought oh no, could this be it! Sure glad it isn't! Had the ortho yesterday late morning for the Synvisc One shot in my left knee, the better of the two! LOL! Had to ice and rest all day long then, and today take it easy too! Tomorrow I can go back to working normal horsey days and hopefully warm enough to ride Paige. Today will be just a light lunging and that's it! Poor Honey might only get a walk along the front of the farm too! Tomorrow Indy will get another shot, he's doing well, no real stiff neck, just a little and no more hives. Paige could have had one more day of bute, made a notation in the computer for next year. Still sore a little and not flexing the neck the way she would for her cookie exercises! But at least no swelling and no abscessing like last year! Larry's good! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Poor Rocky, the ticks target him, huh? How is he for flies? The flues target Gracie's center line on her belly, BJ's legs, and the gnats do a number on Dee's ears. There's a bug for everyone, yay (not!).
So Blue loves the agility classes? He must like obstacles. Maybe I'll get my daughter to work with our Andy-Mo this summer, see what he can do.
Well, like I said, not much horse news. Sat was 80, Sunday 50 with lots of rain, monday 50 with high winds, 34 this am, supposed to be 80 again tomorrow. I did get the west nile EWT vaccines ordered this morning, trying to make sure they get here on a day I'm off so they don't sit out all day.
Well, hope you have a great tuesday

Did Blue get to play hookie from class, or did they cancell??
Since, you must not have snow any more, how much of the 19 inches we have received would you like?? Better wait it is still snowing, we got plowed out later this afternoon, but now it is all drifted back up. One place North of us got 27 inches in 2 days.
Had to bring Hooper and her new babies into the house. This morning found 2 of them "dead" ice cold. Put them in my bra, to see if I could warm them up a bit, soon I felt scratching and poor little things must have been hurting as they warmed up. I brought them in and made an old fashion hot water bottle from a jar, and soon they were both moving around. Only about 3-4 days old. So Mike help me carry her and the rest of the babies in 7 in total, put them in a tote, with as much fur from her nest as possible, the rest of that fuzzy hair, ended up on my gloves and sleeves. Hooper does not mind being in a tote, but not as much room as her cage.
Winds are still blowing, and everything was white, sometimes today it looked just like a beautiful Christmas card, until I remember it will soon be May. 6 months of winter this year.

Did Blues classes start? Did you get hit with the freezing rain? I see from the weather reports you might be on the edge. Got it here. I won't be going out to see Jax. They drive to crazy on 29. It is supposed to just rain tomorrow. I will go see him then. The mud is so bad at the farm. I had to really dig the mud out of his hoofs the other night. He was good about it. Must have felt good.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Busy day yesterday, did all my errands and knew I was running late, so stopped for a couple of slices of pizza! Honey let's you eat in piece and quiet, even in the close quarters of the truck. Got the 25 bales of pelleted bedding and then came home and unloaded it. It got warm and sunny, 72 degrees. Finished that and the kids went out right away! OMG Paige even ran about 30 seconds if that to the other end of the pasture and stopped and looked like, did I just do that! LOL! I worked outside while the weather was nice. Didn't have the energy to wash manes and tails, they aren't that bad really. Rested a while and then took Honey on a mile walk. Today it's colder only 35 degrees and nasty out. Rain moving in. I'll lunge and hopefully a ride on Paige. Indy got his second shot this morning, combo of E/W, Tet & W.Niles. Hopefully he won't hive up and I can lunge him too. Other than that, it's going to be an inside day! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

How's the weather? Still hate that you didn't get your long-awaited warm weekend. You've gotta be getting close to seeing one. One day. Hopefully.
I spent a lot of the afternoon planting tomatoes and getting them staked and caged to protect them from nibbling by bunnies. I also used old shingles around them to hopefully cut down on weeds and then covered that with straw. Finally got to ride Allie in the evening. I'm really liking that trot or lope circling down to a walk exercise; it seems to be helping her to listen to my seat better (though there's still a lot of room for improvement there) and get softer in her nose. She's doing full circles or more with her slow spins. I want her to learn the right frame and cadence for the spin a little longer, then I'll see if we can add a little speed. She seems to kind of like spinning, so we'll see what she can do.
Well, looks like a rainy Sunday here. Hope you have a good one.

Mother Nature sure has her head mixed up. I looks and feels like the middle of a January blizzard. Had 9 inches by 5 pm, and winds are strong right out of the North Pole. Feels like I should be getting ready for Christmas. We did have a few nice days awhile back, temps were in high 30's and low 40's, one day even seen 49, that must have been summer. I wasted those days cleaning chicken coop out, along with bunny pens, and brushing the horses, here I could have been laying in the snow sun bathing. Snow never melted yet, ground still frozen, south side of the house and around the trees snow is gone, but came back today.
Dominic and a friend of his from school spent Friday night here, plans were for the whole weekend, but late today we ran them home, because of all the snow. Mass or Church was cancelled too. Sadie sure enjoys having Dominic here, because she gets to sleep on his bed with him. Little Chance went home, my sister and hubby were gone for 7 weeks. She said he got fat, but I told her he excepts pancakes for breakfast, sometime oatmeal and eggs with cheese would be great, and he loves cookies and graham crackers too.
Put another batch of eggs in lockdown yesterday, so by Monday, I will see what I get. Incubator "spiked" one day, but hopefully it did not kill all the baby ones.

So glad to hear Cowboy i8s doing well. Ulcer Guard is probably a good idea. Didn't get to the clinic, nasty TS rolled in late yesterday afternoon, had to turn the 'pewter off. Winds are horrible, just in a new direction, 40+ mph. Was hoping to go tomorrow, but wind advisory is effect, esp for N/S travel, which is most of the way I would have to go. Better safe than sorry, and Lilly is a lot lighter than the other horses, only about 750-800#.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Oh boy, it's back to work Blue! Is this an advanced agility class now? Do you believe, I saw on the news last night, snow in the forecast again! even the Channel 2 weather man said, well here we went from Winter, to Spring to Summer, and now it's gonna be fall tomorrow and Winter again Monday! I must have slept a long time to miss all those days in the seasons! LOL! Well Paige is looking good, no swelling or lumps of fluid like last year. Larry thinks that he pulled out the needle before all the vaccine was in the muscle and got it between the skin, like a SQ shot. And that will cause the swelling and abscesses! Indy is doing well, Cubes for am and pm, real hay for lunch. Yesterday was a double treat, pasture for 30 minutes, although the grass isn't really green and growing, then his flake of hay. They loved being out. After running a ton of errands this morning, I'll wash manes and tails for sure. Then turn them out for some pasture time, last for the week! Cold returning tonight and maybe that S word come Monday! Go flippin' figure! On a good note, Beast got washed and a spray coat of Turtle Wax Shine! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Oh no, so your temps aren't going up even close to 60? Thats just cruel to get your hopes up and then not deliver.
My sister's mini dashound fiercely wanted to give chase to a couple of deer that bouded out in front of him on a walk. We laughed at him, with his short little legs, he'd never catch them. But he got an A for confidence!
So it's time for agility to start up again? Cool. Hope you and Blue continue to enjoy it.
I did ride Allie yesterday. Wasn't sure how the ride would go, she was jumping at every little leaf that rustled or bird that flew. Howevwr, I kept her mind busy with this or that, not much time to amble around the ring looking for things to be scared of, lol. I did some loping and circle to a walk to get her to start listening to my seat some. She did well with that. I've found she's inconsistent, what she has one day she might lose the next. Eventually, with enough repitiion, she gets stuff, but it takes a long time to get it every time. BJ and Gracie are solid learners, they seldom lose anything but build on it steadily. Oh well, every horse is different. I also trimmed Allie's and Dee's hinds, though they had hardly grown out at all, just needed a little rounding of the wall.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. So Blue was telling the dear to take a hike! BOL! Honey saw some yesterday in the back hay field and then they ran away. She didn't know what to make of them. Today she was afraid to go down with me, had to actually leash her so I could go feed the horses! Silly little girl. Sorry that Blue didn't get to play with his girlfriend at the barn! Well Paige was kinda really miserable all day yesterday, but she did lower her head and neck to eat her Alfalfa hay at lunch time. I gave her a taste from the flake and then dropped it to the floor, it took her a while to get down to it, but she did it. Gave her 2 bute last night and much better this morning. One bute this morning and it'll be one bute tonight and see how she is from there. No neck swellings like last year so far. Indy had a little bit of the hives yesterday, but seems okay this morning. He'll get another shot on Sunday morn and go from there. Today for sure they are going out on pasture time, even through the grass isn't green yet, Larry said 30 minutes won't hurt them and it'll make them stretch those necks out. I'd like to wash the Beast off today, very muddy from going to that farm to pick up the Timothy last Sunday. So looks like while the kids are out, Beast will get a bath!

It's great to be back on HC. Still have snow, around Easter we received 9 plus another 8 a few days later. Temps are not bad, 30's mostly, but fall down to 0 or -1 at nights.
Baby bunnies are getting bigger, also have 2 more batches. Horses are sure getting ready to be let out, but can not even get gates out of frozen ground. More rain or snow coming, we are in winter weather watch. Have about 25 baby chicks, and the geese and duck eggs I was incubating for a friend hatched out 4 geese and 1 little duck, out of 6 and 2. My geese and ducks are not even started laying....they must know the weather is not right. Normally, geese start end of February, first part of March.

Hoping that Cowboy is continuing to do well. Horrible winds yesterday and today. Did get the salmon grilled, but it nearly took an act of God to get the grill lit, the winds were so bad.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Well looks like HC went back to March when it committed suicide on us! Hopefully this means it's going to stay up and running. WOW vet walks in when I'm just finishing feeding this morning. Here for coggins and spring shots. WOW did Paige go crazy, had to lip chain her! She remembers what happened last year at Marissa's I guess with all her shots and her neck blowing up and wanting no part of it this year! Yet she's fine with me when I give her the monthly Pent-O-San for her joints! So Indy got nasal Strangles and Rabies for now, then in two days another shot and then 2 days after that the last one. Hopefully it's going up to about 60 degrees today and no rain, so they are going out to the pastures! It's not green grass yet, but Larry said that the brown stuff won't hurt them and it'll make them stretch their necks out. Hitting the 70's for Fri and Sat and then dropping again on Sun to the 40's. Stupid weather for sure! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Ooookay, HC has taken us back into March again. Weird. Will just leave a short blog since I don't know if you'll get it. With work yesterday, I have no horse news anyway. Hope your weather is better and you have a great thursday.

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

Cloudy but I'll take it. I hope we are missing the 4th northeastern storm. Is you daughter okay. I see there was a tornado in the Atlanta area. Wasn't sure if she was effected. I hope not. Vicki & Big Jax

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Well Honey didn't get to go to the parade! I had to have the two ladies that were to carry the banner and the woman and her two kids that were pooper scoopers ride with me to the staging area. It was over a mile away from where the trucks and trailers parked to ready the horses. Well it turns out the mother and two kids never showed up. So one of the ladies carried the banner and the other was the muck bucket patrol! I followed behind during the Parade and got a lot of compliments on my Beast! Haven't done much more than lunge and do showmanship, still to chilly for me to be riding! LOL! And now another Nor'Easter moving in! They are saying all kinds of silly predictions for snow amounts! Could be from 4 to 14 inches! Please, just the 4 is enough for me! Ole'Man Winter don't want to leave us! Him and Mother Nature are really having some major issues in that marriage of theirs! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

I woke up to 7 degrees How about you? Did get to see Jax. Gave him a good grooming. He was happy. Must feel good to get rid of that hair. He really liked me doing his face. I hope it warms up soon. His mane and tail need a good washing. Hope you got to see Rocky. Vicki & Big Jax

Happy 21st Birthday Rocky!!
Thanks everyone for your tips on logging in to HC...big help. Thanks also for Susie's birthday wishes. Yesterday was Lucky's birthday, he turned 10. I did bring Susie and Lucky carrots yesterday for their birthdays. We are having some beautiful weather for a change. Hadn't had a chance to ride though, taking care of my mom. She turned 88 on the 10th. She has alzheimer's, but still gets around good and everything. Hope everyone has a great week!

Come visit me, ACES WILD & SUSIE AND FRIENDS.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Yep, Paige is moving so much better already! Plus I've been using the Back On Track Sheet on her daily for 4 or 5 hours. Makes a big difference! Oh No, hope that Donna your equine chiro will be okay! Well poor Honey didn't get to come to the parade and be my co-polite! When Susan called at night to give me directions where to come to for the staging area for trailer and horses to park, she said that from there it's about 1 to 1 1/2 miles to the start of the parade and then at the end another mile or so back to the trailers. I would have the two ladies holding the banner and the mother and 2 kids riding in my truck till we got to the take off point of the parade. Hence no room for Honey. My truck is not crew cab, but rather the extended cab with only the half seat in the back! Well, I get there and Honey could have come, cause the mother and 2 kids for picking up manure never showed up! So one of the ladies carried the banner and the other got stuck with the wheeled muck bucket duty! So I only had 2 people in the truck and Honey could have come! Got a lot of compliments on my Beast as I followed Barbara with the muck bucket in my truck, obviously we were the end of the parade. Lot's of guys were like, hey lady, love your truck! So anyhow, I had a couple of friends come to rent out time in my indoor yesterday. Make it pay for itself. Not rally, it'll take a lot of rides to do that. But I'm getting extra cash and that's well needed! I've known them a long time and they are in the same boat as everyone up here, can't find their outdoor arenas yet with all the snow! Today's lunge and maybe ride Paige too! Nice out, going up to about 40 again with sunshine! Walk for Honey and I too! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.
