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.

Sorry I'm on late. I had a full day, but fun. My sister and brother in law came up this morning to visit their daughter, my niece. We had a long breakfast visit, and then I had volunteered to help man the Marsh Tacky booth at the SC horse expo this afternoon. There were 2 Tackies there, and a lot of Tacky friends, new and old. One of them had an equine chiropracter look at her mare. It was interesting to watch one at work.
I got home with just enough daylight to ride Allie and work BJ. For some reason, when I asked for a lope, Allie kinda hit a fast lope and kept going and going and going. She never did slow down on her own, I had to stop her. It was kinda fun.
Well, it's past my bedtime. Hope you have a good night.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya . What a busy day today! Got Indy free lunged and played with him. Then free lunged Bullseye, I really have to take a video of him lungeing, he stays right around me in a circle, like in an invisible round pen! LOL! Then went over to Marissa's. Got Paige groomed and saddled up and went and lunged her. Marissa came back from another horse and bridled Paige up. I couldn't believe how awesome Paige was today! Like she never left her training mode! Marissa even did the baby cross rail jump with her, just to give Paige something else new to do. Did lot's of little things with her and really mixed up all the work. Got off and told her whoa, walked over about 6 feet from me and said, Paige come, mare does a 90 degree turn and starts to slowly walk over, you can see she's thinking, who too? Marissa says you better come to the right person! And she went right to Marissa! Got lots of pats on the neck. After cooling down on the wall, she got a scoop of her Alfa-Lox and a flake of her 50/50 alfalfa hay. She was a really good girl. Tomorrow I'll be leaving the farm my 1 pm for our Awards Banquet Dinner, I can't wait. Be home just in time to feed by 7 pm. Like the idea of the afternoon Banquet better. Marion and the blondes.

A Vote for You!!
Just trying to get a few more votes in this morning. Nice outside this morning, I think it was 17 when I did chores, up to 23 now. Light snow, a inch or so, each night, but its not enough to cover up my trail across the lawn to the barn/shed. I wish I had a real barn, but the Menard shed is divided into a shop, and back part I have hay, a tack room, feed room, which is now filled with "stuff". Pen for the babies, Pickles and Paisley, plus a pen for the noisey guineas hens. Hope your weekend is great.

Buddy Guy here I come...
So after weeks of scouring the Buddy Guy website and checking the Canadian appearances, remember I was hoping he would add London. He didn't, but one day about a week ago I saw a small blurb that said Buddy Guy in Kitchener Ontario, I thought it must have been a previous show, but I checked it out and sure enough he is only playing two Canadian stops on this tour, Toronto and Kitchener. Kitchener is pretty close to us, but when I went to the Box Office there were only "nose bleed" seats left. I was so upset that this show was not on the Official buddy Guy website and all the great seats were sold already. Remember no one has worse luck than me...Then I saw an ad for two front row seats for re sale. David warned me that ticket fraud is a big deal, so be very careful. Long story short, turns out the man that purchased these tickets is also a huge fan, however, he has a vacation conflict for the day of the show, he wasn't sure they would be back in time so he decided to sell the tickets. He wanted the same as he paid, not looking to make a profit. I contacted the Box Office to verify that these were in fact legitimate seats and after they confirmed it, I said SOLD. April 20, Centre in the Square Kitchener Ontario. early retirement present for me. I posted a pic of the theatre, and the two yellow dots are our seats. I'm so excited. Have a great weekend. Love Donna Lee

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Well we got very very lucky in the snow department this morning. NOTHING! A few flurries and not even sticking to the ground. Of course just 15 miles away, they got like 4 inches! And the further south even more! Yep you folks can have it for a change! Got a text from Marissa to come over an hour earlier today. No problem. But of course Paige had other ideas! But it was cold and very windy, her indoor makes more noise than mine ever could. So poor Paige was a little up. But Marissa still got some things accomplished. Hopefully tomorrow will be better. Indy got play time when I got home. He loves his free run time. Marion and the blondes.

What a surprise to see sweet Kisses as HOTD. I will have to send Stephanie a messages. She just sent me a bunch of pictures of Kisses about 2 days ago, so I will have to post them. One is of her daughter, 5 riding Kisses. Stephanie, said Kisses learned to just except a rider, and saddle that riding is just second nature to Kisses. That you for the vote, it is very much appreciated.

Yay! Corral panels are up. A friend helped me with them. She brought a 5 year old girl named Rosie with her. Lisa said Rosie has the mental capacity of a 2 year old. She brought a bag of carrots for Sadie and fed them to her. Rosie, also, rode bareback. My internet is running soooo slow. Taking forever to vote. Hope you're all doing well.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Glad that Susie Q and Rocky got a long. My horses love Harley! What a gorgeous day out today. Sunny and mid 40's! Wed rain all day, but the mid 50's before returning to more colder temps. Well today was Paige's first day of Marissa riding her since our last show. She's impressed with some things I've been working with and it's a big improvement, but I did let her get a little flat on her top line. So Wed I get a lesson in lifting and elevating that neck to round out the back. Of course this will be the opposite of my hands down and not above the horn. I'll be picking up on her to lift her. But Marissa said that what I worked on came along good. My steering off my leg and keeping my hand down and quiet! Always learning, it you're not, then you're not riding right! Indy gets a work out Wed also, before I go over there. Marion and the blondes.

The wind is horrible and cold. Rained last night. Sadie's corral is flooded, again. Rick's suppose to pick up my new corral panels today. Those panels will be connected on the west side at a slightly uphill angle. Should give her dryer space. Anxious to get the corral expanded, too. Have a wonderful Monday. Love and a vote.

IS IT SPRING YET???
Yesterday morning after their breakfast I put them out, it seemed to be going OK, but then the wind came up, it was stupid, both of them tearing around. There is still quite a bit of ice under the snow, so to be safe back inside, after lunch the wind died down, the sun came out and it was quite mild, so out we went. Looks like today will be the same thing, rain moving in around lunch. Enjoy your day, one more closer to spring...Love Donna Lee

finally a break from the snow...
It has been a tough week, I'm back in physio for my shoulder, work related however work will not acknowledge that because I had surgery so it is considered a pre existing injury, never thought after 15 years of loyal service I'd be treated this way, I'm not asking for restrictions, just admit that it is due to repetitive work...I'll make it thru the last 7 months, if it kills me. I guess it is all about the bottom line to a company the size of Maple Leaf Foods.
The horses are doing well, it has been a crazy winter for them, so much ice, they deal well with being left in for safety, harder on me than them, we left a vote, have a great weekend, Love Donna Lee

Hi Rocky.
We ended up with more snow. That's kinda good so that I can still get some pictures of reindeer Cinnamon in the snow. lol

I've made lots of progress with Eli since he's been here (even though it feels as though I've done nothing to improve him). I've had him for almost 7 years now.
Today I will give an example of Eli's story continuing. Last night (this is why I couldn't blog everyone), after I got home from where I volunteer, I went to feed my own critters. After feeding sheep, cats, chickens, and heading over to the barn, I discovered Cinnamon had a bit of an attitude Thursday. I guess Eli tried to get in Cinnamon's food (like he so often tries to do) and she kicked him in the face (which she always tries to do, but most of the time misses him) and scraped hair and the top layer of skin off of his face above his left eye. Those two are still not getting along today. They are both acting moody. I discovered that cinnamon is "wormy" so the worms must be immune to the wormer. I'm going to maybe switch her to the Ivermectin paste to try. At least we know one of the reasons why she's been having a digestion problem (and been moody, what's new about that though!)
Today, also, I will answer some questions...
Why do we homeschool? Well, mainly because of bullying. I've never gone to a public school, but my friend from church who goes to the school we would've gone to had we not done homeschooled, is bullied all the time (a lot!). She was telling me about a fight that happened at her school last week. I am glad that we homeschool. The only thing is, there are still some bullies... they are my brothers haha.
We don't do a lot of stuff on the computer for homework. Just sometimes. We aren't geniuses, but being homeschooled definitely has its advantages. Most people act like we aren't socialized. I can say that definitely isn't true. Sure I don't talk to many people my age. I find it much easier to socialize with adults most times. In fact, all of my closest friends are 50-60 years older than me. One other advantage is I can go to a horse show and say it is a field trip! lol
So far, Eli has 280+ votes as of about 7:00 this morning. Later I'll try and get some pictures uploaded on Eli and Cinnamon's pages.

HI Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Well thank goodness what ever was churning up my tummy, went away after a few hits of Maalox! Woke up fine, but didn't go crazy on anything spicy today! LOL! Went up to Wally World food shopping, got the makings for Chicken Dumpling Crock Pot style over the weekend. And treated myself to a Dash Cam! Can't wait to play with that toy in the truck! Got home and did lunge Indy and Lunged and got a short ride in on Paige. Always feels better to be on my girl! Now they are saying flurries tomorrow, of course! I'll be hooking up to the smaller goose neck again to take Paige to school on Saturday. Gonna miss that pretty face in the barn! Marion and the blondes.

The round pen, as soon as it is finished, will be my main place to work with Eli. (I'm really excited about it!)
First thing is to let him inside the pen to get used to it. Then I have a whole list of things we need to work with him on starting with some of the simpler things to make the harder ones easier.
Today, I just wanted to take the time to thank everyone for voting. Don't know if we'll get HOTM, but either way, the votes are much appreciated. Especially since I can't log on sometimes.
A lot of people are surprised at my age. I'm 15. Same as Eli. He will be 16 in May. His birthday is on his profile. Mine is September 15th. I've been homeschooled all my life. Everyone always says I'll be a writer, but I really don't know. I do like to write, but I never know how to end stories. So Eli's story doesn't really have an ending. That's what is nice because his story continues still. We will still have our ups and downs, but there's one thing that I'll never regret is bringing that fluffy black mini horse home that one day.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Oh Rocky, is that first picture of you making a mudstang out of yourself! On MY! Was happy to see your pups in the spotlight yesterday on DC! Well all my good intentions went to heck in a hand basket! I woke up feeling a little punky! Mild case of colic I had! LOL! It's my cooking, I'm telling ya, my stomach is not used to it yet! It wants it's Marie Calendars back on the menu! So finally by 1:30 I felt well enough to go and at least get Paige to the indoor and lunge her. But me and Maalox are still best friends. See what tomorrow brings, I really want to ride. Well the temps were 40 degrees and strong sun, so a lot more of the snow has melted off! That I am happy about. Marion and the blondes.

After our trip to Washington and back, I started working with Eli at least once or twice a week. I didn't accomplish much because I couldn't keep Eli's attention. I tried walking him down the trail to work on leading him and he completely freaked out and just kept trying to bite me or rear up and I couldn't get him to move out of one spot. He wouldn't go farther on the trail and he wouldn't go back to the barn. We were stuck. Then he took off towards the barn. He was still acting funny and I decided it was time to quit for the day. After that I only worked with Eli once a week because that was all I had time for. We tried to teach him how to longe. I ran with him and someone held onto a rope in the middle of the circle. This worked the best and we were finally getting somewhere, but I had to get him to run by himself because it was too much for me to be running with my knees how they are. Gradually, I got so busy that I couldn't even work with Eli once a week. I didn't like that he ended up a pasture ornament again and I still don't like it, but there's no way I can continue his training without somewhere where I can get his full attention. In November last year, we rented a post pounder and put in a bunch of posts for new pasture space. We had several left over posts, so we put them in for a 40' round pen. It's probably not as big as it should be, but I figured it'll be OK since Cinnamon most likely won't be inside it much if even at all.

Jumping ahead to Summer 2015, we have a Wii (not the Wii U, we got our Wii a long time ago so it's probably outdated). So this will sound kinda funny... that's why I just say I had a "soccer accident", but I don't even like or play soccer. We have the game Wii Fit Plus.. and one of the balance games that you do while standing on the board, is leaning side to side to hit virtual soccer balls with your virtual person's head. Nearing my new high score, the sound of a SNAP filled the room and I was down. I thought I broke my leg! I checked and it was my knee... the same old left knee. I didn't think I broke anything, I could walk on it, but not completely and it was painful. I went to a walk in clinic and they played around with my knee.... Nothing was broken (thank God!), but that's when I learned why this happened. I have Hyper-mobility in my joints... simplified: I'm double jointed and my joints flex more than they're supposed to. Then that thought came back... what if I can't ride cinnamon? I went to therapy, got exercises and returned my knee to full use. Every once in a while it has to "pop" and then it'll feel better, but after that "soccer accident" most of the pins and needles/ numbness are gone. YAY! I returned to riding just before we took our road trip to Washington (from Pennsylvania!) in August last year. I still have to be careful that I don't over do anything, but I'm just happy I can ride and do barn work. That's all that matters to me!! One plus is that I can say to my parents that other things can be just as dangerous as riding a horse or being around one.

Hoping the snow doesn't get us tomorrow too. We have to go over seven mountains(on I-80) and it is a dangerous road to begin with.


Jumping back to the end of Summer 2014, I was riding my mom's bicycle (she can't ride it anymore after several back surgeries and my bike was too small) and took it down around our driveway. At this time, Cinnamon was still in the pasture there, so I was going to see her. It was starting to rain so I figured I better not spend too much time with Cinnamon once I got down the hill. Next thing I knew, I blacked out and when what seemed like I "woke up", I was laying on the driveway, knee had piercing pain, my arm was very badly scraped and the bike was on top of me. I got up slowly, I didn't get knocked out, but it happened so fast that it was almost like I passed out or something, but I didn't. Maybe I closed my eyes, but I don't know for sure. I was wearing a t-shirt, so I could see that my left arm was horrible looking. It wasn't bleeding, but close to it and I'm a big baby about blood, especially if it is mine and it hurts (lol). Nothing seemed to be broken, but my left knee had excruciating pain. I was able to get up and walk through the yard to get out back of our house to the pavilion. That was where my family was sitting. The jeans I was wearing were somewhat tight, so I couldn't roll them up to see my knee, so I changed to shorts quick and then I saw my knee. I was thankful I was wearing jeans when it happened or my knee would've looked worse than my arm. My whole knee was black and blue. Like a huge bruise. It hurt at any slightest touch and constantly felt like pins and needles. The bike was OK but I was beat up pretty bad. This was after the whole accident with Cinnamon, so this was another factor that played in the reason why I didn't ride Cinnamon again till Winter. Honestly, I was more afraid that I wouldn't be able to ride than I was of Cinnamon. Until Summer 2015, my knee was still healing. The bruise was fully gone by Winter in 2014, but the pins and needles and numbness stuck around till last year. That's when I had another accident.....

Busy day off from work, caught up on some chores. Waiting for Austin to have a day off with me, so I can get the door put back on my hay shed. As soon as Rick's back is better, he's picking up the corral panels. Anxious to get Sadie's corral expanded, so she can have a bigger area. Hard having to wait. Going to saddle up as soon as I can. Sadie and I both need it. Love and a vote.

Because Cinnamon was across the road now with Eli, I wasn't doing much with her. My fear of her only grew once again because I wasn't able to work with her. Weeks turned into months, then it was Winter. No way I'd be getting someone to come out with me to ride in this weather. This was winter 2014. I had now turned 14 in September of that year. I decided that when I fed the animals, I'd brush Cinnamon while she ate. This worked well and eventually I was starting to not be afraid of her once again. Then came the one day in the middle of winter that I did ride. There was no snow. I got back in the saddle and just the pure joy of being up there got rid of every fear that I had. I rode one more time that Winter, when there was snow... Cinnamon did not cooperate well being away from Eli. Usually I "steer" her with my legs and get a better reaction than neck reining or using the reins alone. That became a problem that day I rode because of something that happened to me. I will explain tomorrow.

hope you're doing well and having a good start to your weekend.
the big news here today is the weather. got up to pouring rain again this morning, 33 degrees, and 25 mile an hour winds. brrr. so i spent an hour putting blankets on all the horses and giving them hay, and couldnt feel my face when i came in. it was miserable. from there, it turned to sleet and got a little colder. and ive decided that horses' brains freeze and they go stupid in the cold. they were actually afraid of their halters, lol.
well, hope you're doing well and staying warm

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