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. You'll also notice that after he finishes his last few days of meds, he might not be 100% yet. I hit the panic button and called the vet and he said that is normal. In about another week or so, he'll be back to normal. Just how it works. So don't panic. Had to run to town and get grain today and fuel up Beast. Tomorrow will be loading up hay, grain, supplements, dog food, my food, you know the list! Today they enjoyed more time off, out grazing mid-day for a couple of hours. Then it started to get really hot and the bugs started to get really bad. Unless I deep them in fly spray, and I don't even know then if that'll work. The flies are just so pesky! Got two pastures and half of around the indoor mowed this afternoon. Darn horse flies were even attacking me while mowing! They hot tarred our road and then put down a layer of 3/8 inch stone and rolled it. But it's a dusty mess and stones flying all over cause the idiots still insist on driving like it's the Indy 500! Hope it packs down and gets quite over night. Marion and the blondes.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. How's Blue doing. Yes being in the house in the A/C will help him feel better. That Doxi med makes you feel like you are on fire! I know, been there, done it! Well we did good, not my best or should I say her best. But good. We got a storm on Thursday afternoon and that helped lower the temps. Friday we did great in Halter and showmanship. And Marissa had an awesome pattern in Open Trail. Placed well out of 15 horses. I was very happy. But at 7:30 pm when our Ranch Riding was going to go off, they moved us to ring 3 and behind and next to it, they were throwing all the standards and poles for the jumping classes the next day. Several of us had spooky horses and decided to scratch for safety's sake. Marissa didn't want me getting dumped and hurt. Saturday we put more Halter national points on her and did even better in showmanship. I was on my game! Sunday Marissa had a student in the Fair FEI jumping and she's a 14 year old girl with some issues, so Marissa had to forego our Trail class and I had to ride the Open Ranch Riding. I did well in my two Horsemanship Classes, even getting a 2 and 3. Won my Amy Ranch Riding and was second under both judges in the Open Division. Was very pleased with Paige. Today they got the day out on grass, they were happy. Indy had lot's of compliments from the fair goers that walked the barns. He was lunged daily. This weekend he'll be showing in 3 gelding classes. Told him to put his game face on. It was hot showing in the sun, temps were in the mid 80's most of the time all 3 days. Have pictures on FB for those who have it. I'm still tired. Marion and the blondes.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Thank you for the good luck wishes. Does Blue usually live at the barn then? Since you said he was home in the A/C. Well another hot humid one today. Feels like was 96 with a real of 92 again. Started packing by 8 am and was done in about 90 minutes of loading bedding, hay and all the other major stuff. I was dripping wet in sweat! Gave Indy and Paige their show shaves and then did our Showmanship patterns in the indoor with Paige. Only stayed in there about 15 minutes and then back to the barn and 6 fans going! We'll be leaving about 10 am tomorrow, since it's only a 30 minute drive to the Fair Grounds. Hopefully beating out the thunder storms and getting all settled in. Will miss y'all and might list on FB if I have time. Marion and the blondes.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Yeah, the way it was tracking, I didn't think it was going that far north of us. It hit Northern PA really hard! I'd say about another week and Blue will be running around again. I have Lyme's and when mine flairs up, holy hell I feel like crap! Well it was a hot humid one today. Heat index was at 95 degrees, straight up temp was 90! So Indy and Paige were both only lunged for 15 minutes, with every fan going in the indoor, plus the big 36 round fan by the one door way. So it wasn't all that bad in there out of the sun and humidity. Then I waited for the sun to move and shade the backside and northeast side and then I weed whacked all that down. Moved the trailer into the driveway closer to the garages and will start to pack it up tomorrow. Remembering to bring a ton of electrolytes for both the horses, dog and myself. Although the dog will be into the trailer almost 24/7 in the A/C! Lucky him! Marion and the blondes.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Glad to hear that Blue is responding well to the Doxi and has his appetite back all ready and no more limping. It'll take about another week for the energy to return, by the third week he should seem normal. But finish out the 30 day supply. Got a lot of little things done today. Spread out 200 lbs of Mag/Cal in the indoor in the super dry and dusty areas, yes I have those, along with some still wet spots from that storm almost 2 weeks ago now! UGH! Well last night we had that storm, I don't think we've ever had lightning and thunder that lasted so long, it was well over two hours of it. And the rains finally came, heavy for a while too, I was worried about more seeping into the indoor on the low side, but all was well. Rain gauge said one inch. Today was major food shopping day and get all that's needed for our horse show this Thursday when we leave. Horses were out late in the afternoon, as it was very hot and humid earlier, then it seemed to drop in humidity and a nice breeze came in. Tomorrow it's back to riding and start to pack up the trailer. Marion and the blondes.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Just saw where you had to rush your dog to the vet. Lyme's! Harley had it two summers ago, he too gets the Lyme's vaccine, only 75% effective and at that time I was using Bio-Spot for ticks and fleas. My vet said that they are becoming immune to certain one (ticks that is) and recommended K-9 Advantax II, he said that even Frontline isn't working anymore. Prayers, 30 days of Doxi and he should be fine. Marion and the blondes.

hey Rocky! Another very hot afternoon but I got out there and pulled off fly masks, filled water tanks and watered a few plants and trees. Temps have stayed a hair under 100 but the "feels like" have been in the triple digits. I turned the boys out to graze while I cooled down. This is not my favorite time of the year it’s just too hot!

Sterly is doing really good, as Cheryl said, these old mares with Cushings disease will never regain topline and hip line weight, but the important thing is to have a good rib cover... Sterly is lookin' good and I hope you can all see the difference from one month to the next. No actual pounds gained yet, but remember they have to gain from the inside out...her appetite is excellent and her attitude is young... she is soooo shiny and she has shed out very well on her own, love my old girl.

Summer goes too fast...
Good Morning my friends, thanks for continuing to visit and vote, we have been playing catch up at work since the Avian Flu plus this is vacation time and with people off, we all have to pick up the slack. I have to say, I'm getting tired of OT. David is a big help around the barn, but I don't usually have time for a ride after work, too late or too hot, you remember how Charlie hates the heat and the flies...what a baby, plus June was soooo rainy. Sterly is doing super, in fact all is well. Trevor is wonderful, he was diagnosed with a thyroid issue, due to the radiation treatments, but with meds they feel it can be controlled, so he his working full time and doing very well, everyday is a blessing. We left a vote, enjoy a great weekend, Love Donna Lee

♡ we had a very nice weekend. It was full of horse time and BBQing! Ribs turned out great and I gave the horses their spa time with full bath with Mane-n-Tail shampoo and conditioner, trims on their faces and ears. I rode Deacon Sat. and went to bed early (didn’t watch fireworks) so Lizzy and I could ride early Sunday morning. Both days had a nice cool breeze until around 12 or 1 pm. Then it turned out extremely hot both afternoons, the winds made it bearable thank goodness! Have a wonderful Monday!!!

We received 1 ¾” of rain last night-the wind was unbelievable!!! I had to go and get feed and grocery’s yesterday and by the time we were finished it was too hot to ride. I did get fly stuff on the boys and checked the fly mask and then just watched them graze for the evening! Working the weekend but will try to do something with them after work but it will be to muddy to ride. Here is our finial tidbit on the Fabulous Rocky Mountain Horse Breed!
*TOBE was used for breeding until July of his thirty-fourth year, and he passed on his gait, disposition, and other great qualities to his offspring. It has been said that TOBE's progeny followed in his "perfectly-timed" footsteps. TOBE sired many fine horses before his death at the ripe old age of thirty-seven. One outstanding trait passed on was longevity, as many of his offspring were still breeding into their late twenties and early thirties.

Thank you for voting for Whiskey while I was unavailable the last few days. Whiskey sends you all double loves and hugs ♥ I am actually off work tomorrow and back the weekend!
* In the early 1960s, Sam Tuttle managed the trail riding concession at the Natural Bridge State Park in Powell County, Kentucky. He had as many as fifty horses there, including TOBE. This stallion was often seen tied to the hitching post alongside all the mares. He became quite well known in the ten or so years he was ridden there. Besides breeding, TOBE was used as a trail horse. He carried Sam, and sometimes the trail guides who worked for Sam, with sure-footed ease over mountainous terrain for many years. Although Sam would allow other people to ride TOBE occasionally, it was always a ride closely supervised. He loved to show off his beloved stallion, but also kept a close eye on him. Everyone who rode TOBE enjoyed his gentle temperament and comfortable gait. It amazed people to think the well-mannered horse they were riding was indeed a breeding stallion.

* Even through the hard times of the Depression and World War II years, Sam Tuttle kept a sizable herd of thirty to forty horses on his farm. Sam is considered as the man most responsible for the survival of the Rocky Mountain Horse. TOBE was the primary Rocky Mountain stallion used in Sam's breeding program. In the 1950s, many people were selling their stallions, and the horse population in general was rapidly declining due to tractors and farm machinery available. Even so, breeders remembered TOBE, and he was always in demand for stud service. People brought their mares to TOBE from several different states, and he was as famous in Estill County as MAN O' WAR was in Lexington, Kentucky. Everyone who rode TOBE fell in love with him. TOBE's offspring were always in demand, and Sam never had any trouble selling all the Rocky Mountain Horses he could produce.

I took the fly masks off the horse’s yesterday evening. Whiskey rolled and really rubbed his head in the mud~silly boy. SO I went ahead and took off Deacon’s and Rocket’s. The flys are not as bad right now and I can say that won’t last long as we dry out from this last few days of rain. Have a wonderful day ♡
*Sam Tuttle was the most prominent breeder of Rocky Mountain Horses for the first three quarters of the twentieth century. With the advent of better roads and means of travel, the population of gaited horses in the United States began to decline. The exception was the less developed area of the Appalachian Mountains. Gaited horses were still needed for travel where there were no roads, and therefore they were preserved in that area.

We have received 3” of rain with this Hurricane Bill. It is going to rain through Thursday evening. We are wet and soggy for sure…..the boys are looking a little muddy they love it thought!!!
*The Rocky Mountain Horse Association's (RMHA) rendition of the history of the breed states there was a gaited colt brought from the Rocky Mountain region of the United States to the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains in eastern Kentucky around 1890. He was referred to as "the Rocky Mountain Horse" by the local Kentucky people because of the area of the country from which he had come. He is the horse credited for the start of the Rocky Mountain Horse breed. Little is known about this foundation stallion, but oral history indicated he was chocolate-colored with flaxen mane and tail, and he possessed a superior gait. The stallion was bred to the local Appalachian saddle mares in a relatively small geographical area and the basic characteristics of a strong genetic line continued. This prized line of horses increased in numbers as years went by, and these are the horses known today as Rocky Mountain Horses.

I am off work tomorrow so I will phone vote as many as possible. We had a light shower yesterday evening which we needed. It freshened up the grass it was getting pretty dry. I just need the rain not to fill our lakes and streams like it did a few weeks ago! Mccown at Lake Whitney is still not open. Have a wonderful day ♡
*The families of eastern Kentucky who owned these horses were not wealthy and could not afford to spend a lot of money on the upkeep of their horses. Unlike Kentucky Thoroughbreds that were typically owned by wealthy people, the gaited horses of eastern Kentucky received no special care, and as a result, most of the weak ones did not survive. These horses withstood the harsh winters of eastern Kentucky with minimal shelter, and they were often fed "fodder", a kind of rough silage. Some had to exist on whatever sustenance they could find. So, like deer, they ate the bark off trees when they were hungry. Only the horses that survived these extreme conditions lived to reproduce their kind.

✞ Whiskey has a fast walk that is like the true gait of a Rocky Mountain but it isn’t as pronounced like the other RM horses I see, it’s a little different. He has the smoothest gallop and run. He has the energy to go go go. He will go no matter how long you want to ride-his battery never seems to run out but that is the breed, again they started out as a utility horse!! Whiskey stays to himself; he doesn’t really hang with the other 2, only once in a while. Deacon picks him as a favorite for a day or 2 then they separate and Rocket is Deacons main herd mate. * During the late 1800s and early 1900s, the rural inhabitants of eastern Kentucky considered these saddle horses to be horses for all seasons. They were sure-footed, easy-gaited, and the mount of choice for postmen, doctors, and traveling preachers. People used them for plowing small fields, herding cattle, traveling through the steep and rugged trails, and driving the buggy to church on Sunday. Horses were not a luxury, but a necessity. Every horse had to earn its keep and be extremely versatile. It was not a matter of having horses around to use every once in a while; these horses were worked hard, every day. At the end of the day they were exhausted, but possessed enough stamina to continue on, day after day.

Whiskey’s mane & tail change colors several times in the year by going lighter then darker. His body color changes as well. He truly loves his bath time and grooming, he trailers well in any type I load him in, and will load without heisting at all. He is also my bareback horse. Perfect back for it so if I don’t feel like putting the saddle on I can always just get myself up on him and go at any time. He is the type that will come to you every time from the field or anywhere. I guess that’s the treat hound in him lol.
* The Rocky Mountain Horse breed originated in the United States in the late 1800s, in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains of eastern Kentucky. At the time of its beginnings, there was no understanding of the need to document anything about these horses. The people living in this region were quite unaware that one day their utility horses would become the foundation of a special breed of horse. The existence of these horses was practically a secret for many years to all but the inhabitants of this region.

My Whiskey boy has the antics of a comedian! He is so funny but yet so very gentle and lovable. He is in fact my “treat Hound”. He will do absolutely anything in the world to get a treat, cookie or carrot or anything to eat. If you show him how to do something and he knows you are going to give a treat he will try until he learns it to in fact get that treat. I have had so much fun with him. He will check me for a treat and if I don’t have one he will almost shrug me off with a turned head tossed in the air as if he is saying “I’m done with you, off you go child” .
* The history of the Rocky Mountain Horse from 1890 to the latter part of the 1900s carries little or no documentation and few facts that can be proven beyond the shadow of doubt. Everyone who personally witnessed the breed's beginnings (back to the 1800s) is deceased, and we have been left with only verbal history passed down from generation to generation. Thus, all that can be recorded at this point in time are the stories recollected by living descendants. Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

so happy the fever has not returned, that is GREAT news :) I continue to work with Whiskey and every now and then I still put the O ring on him and to keep him sharp. He really does well each time we ride. I am not all that good with all kinds of bits. I have not mastered the bit world-well, probably not a lot of horse things but I am on my journey and heading that way. I can ride Whiskey & Deacon both with just halters on but have never tired bridle-less yet but that is another goal of mine. The more we rode the better Whiskey got at reining. The more miles and trails the easier it got on me and him. I discovered Whiskey loves the water. We can get in a few minutes but I have to move him out or he will try to lie down, but I can take him right back in and then he settles to stand, doesn’t swim yet with me. We are still working toward that. Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

I hate ticks! Most will not hurt ya, but those couple of ones that can are deadly!!!! Glad you caught it and have him on meds :) Few things about Whiskey: The 1st few times I rode Whiskey my arms were wore out and tired. I was thinking “man what in the world”. He did not and could not Neck rein. He was very hard in the mouth, no flex in his neck but Karla & Tim told me he needed that kind of work. Tim felt he didn’t ride him in collection and so on. He was Tim’s first horse. We would get under the canopy of the trees on the trails and he would do great with my seat aids which I was happy about. That is how I ride him, with my seat and leg aids. I guess we all are supposed to do that RIGHT!!!! I then started planning my next few months of teaching him to neck rein. I just went back to the beginning and put him in an “O” ring snaffle and took it from there. Every day his personality would shine and he entertained Cliff & me with his antics! Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

it is wonderful that you can get a ride on Rocky now and then. I still haven't gotten the boots for my Whiskey yet! We had a nice weekend and hope you all did as well. Lizzy came over Saturday and rode Rocket and then she gave him the full grooming experience and I did the same with Whiskey. I had a 30 minute short workout for Deacon on Sunday morning then went to Tractor Supply for feed and the grocery store. Every other weekend I am not around a computer so I will phone vote as many as possible, also 1 x a week that I will phone vote :) * Rocky Mountain Horses are slow to mature and do not reach their full size and weight until about five to six years of age. Generally healthy horses, they often live long lives but do have a tendency to be extremely "easy keepers". Care must be taken to keep your Rockies from becoming too overweight, particularly in their later years.* Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

♥ TGIF~No one else is running HOTM so vote Whiskey please! not sure how my weekend will go, I will try riding my home area if Lake Whitney isn’t open. I have several things on the to-do list I may try to tackle…It has been pretty hot after work each day in the lower 90’s so whatever I do will need to be early in the day and late evening! Have a wonderful weekend. ♥

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Thank you to all that helped with voting daily for Angel H.T., he's our new HOTM and Indy was very happy to turn the crown over to his late brother. In my over 7 years on HC, I can't remember anyone winning three crowns in a row with their herd! I feel honored to be the first in this Triple Crown winning! And as an added bonus, Paige went HOTD! She was elated too about that and all the extra treats today. AS I think about this right now, it's so strange for the fact that Paige lives in H.T.'s old stall! Good vibes going on in that stall today. Heavy storms and rains again last night, 2 1/4 inches of rain in like less than 2 hours! Heavy duty thunder and lightning, knocked my dish network out and everything. Rain, mostly drizzle all day today. Hopefully it's helping all the farmers crops and my hay field out back.
Thanks for the up date about the nodules on my Thyroid, yes they said that when I make the appointment with the Endocrinologist, that's probably what he'll do. Monitor them every 6 months. Going to get the CD from the Imaging place tomorrow and take it to my Lung Doctor and let him look at it also.
