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. Well no rain today, just very overcast and kinda windy. Which did dry out the grass enough that I could mow the backyard! So now Honey will go potty and walk in it, didn't like the tall grass at all! Well Paige hit the line again and did very well with loping and did throw a few bucks and a couple of rears! Stayed okay when I put her in the extended trot, no bobbing at all. Next week I'll saddle her and lunge, then after that, it's time to step up on her again! Indy got free lunged of course. He's so cute! And more rain moving in overnight and all day tomorrow! GEEZZZZ! Marion and the blondes.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Well, yep you guessed it! More rain! Probably about 4 inches total by now! Not happy, Honey don't like the tall grass and pulls me away from taking her out to potty! I might have to weed whack a small 30 foot circle for her! Spoiled pup! Got Paige lunged, and did a little more loping today on the line. Vet says if all goes well, we can start riding around May 15th! Indy got to free run in the indoor, he had a blast! Then it wasn't doing anything out, so I managed to get 9 bales of hay to the barn. And got the big tractor down and dragged the indoor. Nice and fluffy again! Love my fluff! LOL! Marion and the blondes.

Hope your week is going well. Mine is a busy one, so I'm not getting much horse time, maybe next week. But it's going pretty good.
When will Deacon dog be going to adoption clinics, any time soon? Does your daughter have to keep them for a couple of weeks to see how they do with being indoors, around other animals, kids, etc? He sounds like a sweet dog, hope he gets a good home.
Well, take care and have a good hump day.

How is your week going?? Been planning on brushing everyone up to help with winter fuzzy wuzzy being gone, but just never have much time. Farrier is coming on Thursday the 5th, so want to have it done. Have to put a new door with hinges on one small chicken coop, clean out the fish bath tub pond, had it emptied or nearly, when it rained for a few days, and now it is full again. I care the water to newly planted little trees, which I stole from our woods, work on a fencing for the 2mt old chicks, finish clicking the rabbits tangled fur, she is long haired, and I never finishing doing her. Hatching out another batch of baby chicks, the other 15 are leaving on Saturday along with 8-10 guinea hens, then the rest can start free roaming. The hens have been laying and collected 36 of them and have set them 2 days ago, then will add 12 pheasant eggs in 2 more days, and 3 days after that fill in with some chicken eggs, depending on space. Still air incubator and I need to turn the eggs at least 4-5 times a day. It will e nice to have enough money to of course buy more feed, and not have to take from a different fund, might even have enough to pay into the fund for farrier work and shots.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Well the rains continue! Probably 2 inches at least! And more to come! Grass is so high and thick, don't know if my poor lawn tractor will do it without having a heart attack! Went food shopping and then downtown for grain. Got Paige lunged again, well it's everyday, 7 days a week to build up that muscle. Today she loped again, doing very well. Indy got the day off, it was raining to hard to walk another to the indoor. I don't want that sinus infection back or any sickness. So I hid in the house the rest of the day! Marion and the blondes.

Still cool this morning, but no frost. Planted more tomatoes yesterday, plus threw in squash seeds, that I saved from last yrs, I know that it is not a good idea, but it will help keep the weeds down is some troubled areas, until we have time to level off these areas. Most of them have stumps and old junk areas. But if I don't put something there, nasty weeds take over. Going to look at some Scottish Highland heifer calves tonight. Also set the guinea hen eggs in the second incubator, and of course even after running it for 3 ddays to make sure temps stay steady, they are too high last night, then too low, now it seems to level off. In 3 days will set pheasant eggs, and then fill in with chicken eggs, a few days after that, so they should all hatch out together....if I planned it right.

So glad you had a good ride with your daughter and the dogs. I bet they LOVE going on trail rides with you.
Yesterday was groceries, grass, and homeschooling, so no time for riding, but I did bring Allie up for love and brushing again. And her favorite part, eating clover in the yard.
Well, off to work. Hope you have a great tuesday and some horse time.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Sounds like you all had a nice trail ride again. That's so great that you can take the dogs and they don't run away. Still on the tired side. But even in the mist/drizzle this morning, I got the trailer all unpacked and cleaned up. Moved it to it's parking spot. Then Lunged Indy, well free lunged him, he had some pent up energy and he ran it off on his own! LOL! Then today was to be Paige's first day of loping under control. We did our lungeing routine and at the end, I loped her each direction, 2 circles and then trot, then again loped. She was like, ah should I be loping mom! LOL! And I didn't drug her or use the lip chain, just her regular over the nose chain. She was good and was sound all the time. Honey then got to be turned loose in the indoor too, she has a ton of pent of energy to run off, can that little girl run! She was lungeing herself around me! Too funny! Marion and the blondes.

Hubby, Mike, has been working the gardens up for the past few weeks. Got the fence up and yesterday afternoon planted root crops, like potatoes, carrot,....4 packages, by order of the horses, beets, radishes, and about dozen small tomatoes. Good thing we covered them, because temps were 29 and frost everywhere this morning. Tried to load pictures of the turtles and there new home....they are not in it yet, well, at least not all day, because it is too cold yet. But pictures would not load, perhaps too big. I will work on it tonight.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Thank you all for the congrats on Paige's HOTM! What a great surprise! Show went well, weather was cold and rainy however! But Paige placed very well in her Halter classes, just behind three top heavy duty halter horse mares under all 4 judges! So if the biggies didn't show up, my little mare would have been tops! But she is in my book no matter what. Very tough Showmanship patterns, but we placed in 6 out of 8 of them under 4 judges. I personally got knocked down cause I can't run the extended trot! It's a reason it's called Select Showmanship (over 50)! Hello judges! LOL! Indy had fun, got lunged and loved on. And little miss Honey was a hit with everyone! She became buds with a Swiss Mountain Bernese that was three times her size! She handled the show scene and living in the LQ trailer very well! Now we're both off to catch up on much needed rest.

I will post the pictures of the two turtles on Kisses page if I find some time today. The water in the pond was super cold for them, and a shaded area. Pen is about 5ft tall, 6 w/8-10 feet long. I did replant the iris, added Stella O Day, and threw in some flower seeds. It already had hosas, Snow on the Mt, and another small ground cover plant, now all we need is warm weather so they can stay out in their new home. Temps were barely 40 when I came in from feeding.
Pickles is really starting to get better, let me walk him all the way to the pasture today, even if everyone else had run ahead of him, near the gate, he started to get antsy, so I walked him the other way, and then back to the gate. He is still so fuzzy with baby fur.

I hope you have a nice ride this weekend and no bad weather your way :) I hope everyone has a nice weekend filled with horsey time! We have had more rain so it is still to wet to ride around our property. The lakes will stay closed for a month or so, I can't haul out and ride that way. The horses have shed their hair so well. They are slick and oh so shiny!!! ♡

We did get the pond in, still have to move the cage over the top, but want to plant flowers and plants where the cage will go, but will have to steal violets, and day lilies from other areas because all I have in this area is Snow on the Mountain. Yes, we still have cold or cool weather mornings have been down to 28, but usually around 34. Spring will make it, I know, because my guinea hens have started laying.

I've never known anyone with the Old Mac boots, but I've heard they are good. Glad they work so well for Rocky-I'll have to check them out.
I got on Allie for the first time since "the incident" a few weeks ago. We were both so tense we could barely breathe, but I kept it short and sweet, and it went well. Whew! Now to build on that.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. WOW what a great foster dog! What kind is he/she? Yes the ThunderShirt does really help! Maybe not calm them down totally, but she stopped shaking and panting like a crazy lady. From now on when I know we're gonna get a possible thunderstorm, on goes the ThunderShirt! Might help her better that way. Well it was a very busy day with getting ready for the first show of the season. Got the trailer hooked up and all loaded up, except for some last minute stuff in the morning. Horses clipped, Lunged and turned out for an hour of pasture time too. Then weed whacked all around the place! I'm exhausted! Mo came home, finally after 5 days on the lamb! LOL! He was in the barn when I came back from Lungeing Paige. He was talking up a storm with me and was very happy to rub against my leg and be picked up and petted! He ate some of his food and then went outside and sat in the grass. Tonight he's on the MIA list again. But I know he's all right at least. Just not fond of Honey, that's all! LOL! I'll be back on line on HC on Sunday night. We show Friday and Saturday, I'll stay over night then and leave Sunday morning sometime for home. Marion and the blondes.

Does your mom like horses too? Yeah, I'd be happy petting and smelling a mini if I was in a nursing home. I think you need a mini, lol.
Had another good but busy day yesterday, and it's back to work today, so won't have any horse time. Hope you have a good hump day.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. That is awesome that the foster dog loves the horses and going out on the trails. Does she leash him off the horse?? Well, it was raining when I got up, knew it was going to. So this morning went up to Wally World and did a big grocery shopping for the horse show. I'll be making sausage, peppers and onions for dinner for 15 people, geezzz I can just about handle making food for myself! Wish me luck! LOL! Then lunged Paige, who is feeling her oats so to say! And when we were just about done, the lightning and thunder started. I knew that I might have a problem with Honey, so I got Paige back to the barn and on the wall. Up to the house, and sure enough, Honey was panicked! Shaking like heck and panting! Got her ThunderShirt right on her and laid on the floor with her. After it all stopped, I took her to the barn with me as I still had to lunge Indy. She was okay in the barn. After I finished Indy, I trimmed Bullseye's feet. Then Honey and I went back to the house, she was pretty calm then and it was just raining. So now I have to worry about being away from the house when a storm is approaching. Poor baby girl.

More rain today, like 5th day in a row. The temps are cool too, so outside work is like the rain....hit and miss. Rest of the week should be cool without too much rain. Been planting tomatoes in paper cups, for the garden. I do have about 20 tomatoes plants up about 6-8 inches, but these were a different kind. As long as it is raining, we will go for feed today, if we can get the topper back on the truck.
