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.

When I went out to hay yesterday morning (snow on a chilly morning smells SO good!), little Sobe came bounding back up onto the porch as I was tying my boots and jumped on my hands (I had to start the tying over again, lol). It was like she was so excited by the snow on the ground and had run back up to tell me it had snowed. What did we humans ever do to deserve dogs? So darn cute. It got up to the low 40s, I think, and all the snow melted except for a bit on the north side of things. I didn't ride because of the mud, but I enjoyed being outside doing a few chores.

Mikey's drs told him this would be a major surgery, and they did not think he was needing it yet. He had heart vales put in about 5 nearly 6 yrs ago, and one of them lets blood run back, it is just a tiny bit, but still it's going the wrong way. I told him we would just fix him up ourselves, with a can of "stop leak" for radiators. That brings a smile to him.
Today was so warm, if 34 is warm, bright sunshine. Went to Ladysmith to finish getting things for Saturday. Took Mom with us, so she gets out of the house. We let her poke around in Connections, came home with a giant baby bottle bank, 2 little jointed bunnies for Easter, a magnetic bird, and 2 necklaces....hit the jackpot day, jewerly "buy one...get one free" all household and kic-knats 1/2 price so spent 167 with tax. But after washing up baby bank bottle, put all my change in it for Ryder. Rich kids, has over 2.80 now. Ha Ha
Everything outside was laying in the hay sleeping when we got home, went out and pasted out "after Christmas candy canes" I found today 10 cents a box of 12. Cheap treats, but sure was hard to take off cellophane wraps.
Went on Ryons Rescue Saves, donated for 2 horses even my 5-10 dollars helps, I just wish I would win the lottery, but can not do that if I do not even buy a ticket.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Well started out at 04 and made the high of 26 or so. But the sun was strong and felt great! A little wind, but not all that bad! I actually was sweating out there working the snow blower. Yep, that lovely high wind yesterday filled in all my hard labor moving that 7 inches of fluffy snow! So today it was snow blow all over again and then man the tractor and finish up the driveway. Got the Beast moved and all cleaned off too and shoveled out the bed. Horse got some time in the indoor, and then lunch of hay and fresh water. Honey played in the cleared paths running like a nut case! She hit the deep stuff a few times and was like, oh no, out of here! I was beat by then, had some lunch and a nice long nap! Love my naps! LOL! Marion and the blondes.

So glad Daniel is doing better. How is he for taking his antibiotic? It's usually quite a pain giving meds to a cat. My friend has a cat that got a bad tooth too and had to have it removed and is on antibiotics. I've never heard of a cat having tooth problems and now I know of 2 of them in 1 month.
We wound up with a couple inches of snow yesterday and it's in the teens this am, so it looks and feels like winter for a day (I'd better get out and hay my very pitiful herd this morning, lol). Supposed to warm up a lot by the weekend though.
Well, hope you have a great thursday.

5-6 inches is enough at one time, glad it was not heavy and wet. Now as long as those winds do not pick up and blow it all right where you walk. So glad Daniel is going to be OK. Never had a cat with tooth issues.
Was very windy today, temps were up to 20 above put 20-30 mph winds made it feel colder.
Made cookies today, nothing fancy, ch/chip with walnuts, and some crunchy peanut/coconut, and then some ch/chip without nuts for Richard, since he can not have anything "rough", he had a lot of troubles with his stomach when he was smaller, he is 10 now. Don't get to see him or his sister, Camille because they live in Wausau.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Oh bet you got more than us for sure! So that was the sign, running nose and eye on Daniel. I've never had a cat with a tooth problem, so had no idea of how to tell. Well for snowing for over 29 hours, thank goodness it was the light stuff and not coming down hard and fast! So our total was 7 inches! It stopped by noontime and of course the winds picked up then too! So the 24 F felt like 14 F and now the drifts are building up! Worked the snow blower first and got all down by the barn and indoor done, oops forgot to do a path past the gate to the manure pile! Oh well, that's what Thursday is for! LOL! Then maned the tractor and got 3/4 of the driveway done. Called it quits then, was frozen and cold! Got Honey and we went out to the barn and gave the kids lunch of hay and fresh water. Honey has a 15 X 25 puppy park in the back yard for potty time! Going down to the single digits tonight, oh joy! Might have to run the heat so those wall fins don't freeze up since the wind is blowing from that direction! Hope this stops soon and spring comes early! Marion and the blondes.

Same here. The plow finally game through. My neighbor does my driveway so it got done before he went to work. Our temps dropped to 0 over the weekend. On Sunday, my nephew and his family took me out to meet their daughters new horse. Annabella. Then we went to visit the King (lol) My niece cleaned his stall for me. She is a sweetie. Only 10 and thinks of others. Jax was happy he got lots of treats. We got the 6" plus. Knew we would get it. Still better then the cold. The high teens seem like a heat wave. Saturday we are taking Sarah out to dinner for her birthday. I like that the barn gets together for the owner and her family. She and I are going to show Western Dressage this summer so I am going to give her a gift cert for a show shirt. Vicki & Big Jax

What a nice surprise this morning after it started getting light out, Mother Nature, Jack Frost, and Mr. Sun really outdid them selves....looked like a Christmas card, sparkling new snow, frost on all the trees, and actually "above" zero. Was below when we went to bed at 10, must have warmed up threw the night. Snowed a couple of inches. I went and left a pattern of circles all over the lawn. Felt like making a snow angel. Our drive to Phillips was so pretty too, 20 miles of just frosted trees and sunshine.
Going to bake tomorrow for our Christmas and birthday get together on Saturday the 20th. Also that evening will get together with my brother and sisters for Mom's 92 birthday. We all will play Bingo with white elephant gifts. Everyone cheats and trys to make the others win bingo. Lots of fun, but some of those gifts you don't dare just open up....never can tell what someone wrapped up. Most are very funny. Mom enjoys it too, I think she even trys to get bingo.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. How did you know that Daniel had a tooth problem? So you had a pretty busy weekend then. Well let it snow, let it snow, let it snow! But lucky so far, since it started at 7 am this morning, and it's almost 12 hours, we've only got 2 inches so far! But they say the heavy snowfall will come overnight! New prediction is now 5 to 7 inches! Got the kids to the indoor and lunged Paige and did showmanship, then lunged Indy, and free lunged Bullseye. Got the wood burner going a few days now, feels great and I love the idea that I'm not using a ton of oil! Mo's up here in the house with us right now, but he's going back to the barn when I do pm feeding in a short while. He ran out when I went out with one of the kids and took off. Finally came back, but I was in the house and not going back out, so up the stairs he came and in the house! PS, got a text from Cheryl and Cisco, she'll be back on in a few days! YAY!

Hope the cat is feeling better, glad someone is watching out for those who can not speak up for them selves. I lost one this fall, and I feel sorry for him, because I did not even know what happened to it. Was not one of mine, but a stray, that stayed out in the barn, I alway left food for him, and put out a box with bedding and a blanket.
Drs both told Mikey that this is a major surgery, and he is not quite not ready for it. Has to watch his INR and blood pressure, not sure if it was just high that day, because his other dr. had just taken him off one of his blood pressure meds.
Still below zero this morning, but got up to 8 or so, warming up a bit each day, but then chance of snow. Snowed nearly all day, but real light. Tomorrow Mike has to take his hearing aid, up to Phillips, in the VA office, woman from Wausau comes there every month. Save us a trip in the cold months.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Well it was a productive running around errand day today! Started out at 09 degrees and got up to about 24 degrees. Sun was in and out, then out for the rest of the day! Went to town and got the newspapers for the doggie retreat and picked up a bunch of sale items at that store. Home and did a few things inside, like laundry, much needed! Then gave the kids lunch of fresh warm water and hay. Off to the chiropractor for my usual adjustment, much needed of course! Then Wally World for the really big grocery shopping! And it was a big one, hadn't shopped in three weeks due to the weather! All set now for a couple of weeks at least! Next it Tractor Supple and the Feed store for more of the kids food. Honey says I need my grain to mom! Marion and the blondes.

Drs are both specialist at Fairview UN of Minn. I have to talk to Mikey in person to find out more or Jennifer. Calling for 90% chance of snow today, rather have had the snow than the -17 and a terrible wind. My sister Debbie and hubby Gary were up to his Dad's 94th birthday, and because of the snow wanted us and my sister Kathy, (finally home from DC) to meet at Mom's early, so we were there by 10. Kat brought me 2 Breyer horses from a Goodwill and a pair of boots....just my size, if I can get my foot in than they are my size, but these did fit. Chance, her dog, wanted to leave with us. She said he will moop around now for a few days.
After we got back home, we were going to take Dominic home. He had a 21 school wrestling meet in Ladysmith, he took 3rd in his weight division. For that many schools, that is great. But his dad said he would cut us another truck load of firewood, cleaning up around his deer stand. We made it freezing cold and wind, but by then temps were up to a -3. Did chores early tonight, around 3-330, geese/duck and Cindy Lou were more than willing to go in. Tonight it should start a very slow warm up. Was -21 threw the night.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Well only 08 this morning and a high of 18 F this afternoon. But the sun was out nice and strong, so made it feel a tad bit warmer. Indoor was at 30 degrees, so it was work time for the kids! Paige got lunged and a showmanship workout. Indy got lunged. Bullseye got to run free. Then it was lunch of fresh warm water and hay for them. Then football for me! All I can say is, so far with the 4 games this weekend, only one of my favorites has won. Last game is on now and the Saints are taking a beating! Oh well! Glad I don't bet money on these things! LOL! Marion and the blondes.

Mikey talked to 2 different drs, each with different ideas, one said let "it" go for a bit and other wants to put a plug in...not sure what the "it" is, will find out. When he had heart surgery before, they repair/replaced some vavles, and the blood leaks around one valve.
Remember your logic about the cold and horse's brains. I just read this on a posting about Horses Health....
"When my horses get cold, they lose brain cells. They act really dumb. Not sure how to explain it. Just real flighty and Bully which they know better."
Running late tonight, so just leaving a cote and short comments, and of course it is freezing cold again tonight...-19 this morning and barely made 0, but 0 on the plus side. :)

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Well it was an interesting day for sure! Went from a high of 62 yesterday to waking up to 26 this morning with a skip of ice and sleet/snow combo out there. But the winds were horrible, steady at 18 mph with gusts to almost 40 they were saying, and it sure felt like it! Temps dropped more throughout the day too! So it was not an indoor arena day at all. I didn't want to chance walking them out the door and have one freak out and slip on the now ice covered mud! So lunch time fresh water and hay, and they were very happy. My hay man came with another delivery of 50 bales. Probably need another 100 in the hay barn to make it till second cut Timothy in June. Marion and the blondes.

Did you wind up with much ice? Sure hope not.
we got almost 2 inches of rain too and we weren't even hit with the heaviest of the storm. A lot of wind behind it and the temps dropped quickly from 60s to 31 this am. I had to get a new deicer for the water trough as the last one's plug came apart when I unplugged it, but it's a lifesaver when it's below freezing.
The coolest thing happened yesterday. My sister in law wanted me to pick up some lunch for her while I was out and about, and when I went in, I ran in to a friend I haven't seen in over 15 years! She has since divorced and remarried, has a horse again and likes to trail ride. So you know what we want to cook up. She says her mare is super easy going and loves trails, the perfect trail partner for my terrier-in-a-horse's-body, Allie. We had a lot of fun catching up.
Well, looks like the rain and snow have moved way north of almost everybody. Be careful in the ice, stay warm, and have a great saturday.

As King Jax, he should "order" better weather, but I would rather have this stuff now, than spring. Let Mother Nature get it out of her system. I like that 70 days until spring that sounded good.
Where the snow was packed down, like the drive way it was icey, but most of the snow was just like "snowball packing snow", then we got new snow on top of that, not like the 6-8 but more like 3-4, hard to tell, because the winds just blew all night. Hard crust on top of the snow now, most places I could walk on top. Was a -8 at 5 tonight. Animals all tucked in for the night. I think the big Cinnamon doe likes being in such a open pen. She comes right up to me when I give her more feed, not that she needs more in her pans, but this morning she got a slice of bread and a carrot, plus had to give her warm water. Each day they get treats, already have their oatmeal and Cheerios mixed for them.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Well we got rain rain and more rain! Like almost 2 inches so far, and with the melting snow, it's a flooding mess out there! Not fun at all! Needless to say, the kids did not get to the indoor today! Instead it was a complete spa day for them. Complete with shaving of the muzzles, bridle paths and fetlocks! They enjoyed it! Then lunch of hay and fresh water. Temps are still at 60 degrees, but by morning will be down to the low 30's! And the rain will turn to ice and sleet! Oh joy for sure!

Hope Blue and Rocky are doing well. Are you getting a bunch of rain too?
We got light rain/drizzle all day yesterday which was nice, and I hear intermittent rain out there this am. I'm curious to see how much is in the rain gauge. Of course, it'll make feeding a damp affair, but that's okay, and i probably won't get horse time today unless it really clears off later. But hope you have a good friday.

It rained....yep from -20 to rain, all threw the night, nothing hard, just could hear it. snow was mussy this morning. Foggy, but not any snow until about 10, rain and snow mixed, schools were closed, but things did not get bad until afternoon, temps went from 33-30 to down around 7-8 just like that, winds really picked up. Tomorrow it is suppose to be down below zero.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Just to let ya know, I heard from Cheryl and Cisco and they are out of gigs on the internet, so she'll be back when it rolls over again. Well we got warmer today, high of 46, but with no sun it didn't feel that warm! But I got a lot done outside. 3 more bales of hay to the horse barn. Big tractor down and moved the manure pile back and then got into the indoor and dragged it really good. Horses all enjoyed their play time in the nice soft sand. Indy must have rolled half a dozen times! He loves to roll. Honey and I got in a mile walk too! Then later on, met up with someone who brought my winter riding On Course heavy English pants from back when. Another item sold that no longer fit me! Cash is good! LOL! Now for tomorrow and the heavy rains! YUK! Marion and the blondes.

The rabbit somehow got out of the cage after I cleaned it out yesterday. My rabbits are friendly, I was not worried about him. Cats do not bother them either, Sadie will if they run, but he came right up to me this morning, so he is back home. But I did turn the other female loose in the pen where the goat was when she first came, big pen about 15 x 12, I thought about putting all the females in there, they can not get outside, but not sure how they would get along. Her pen is the biggest and messiest. I put the 2 dwarf of Mary's in her pen and moved it to the chicken coop. I have one rabbit running loose in there too....makes the chickens wonder.
Mikey and Jennifer left for Minneapolis about 4 tonight. Weather is turning nasty. Winter storm warnings out, chance of sleet/rain until 1 am, then snow up to 6-8 where they are heading, and we are 8-10. Foggy all day today, went to get more of Mikey's pills, and then a load of firewood. Warm enough today 30's, but then the wind is back. But by Friday back below 0.....from rain/fog/sleet to -10....welcome to Wisconsin weather. Hope yours is better.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Well it made it up to about 38 today. Sun this morning and then about 2 pm the clouds moved on in! So not much melting happening then. But at least it beat having it at 15 degrees or less. Took more hay to the barn and then Lunged Paige and then Indy. Bullseye got turned out in the one pasture, do you think he'd roll and clean himself up a little? Heck no! Dirty little donkey! Brought him in and gave everyone fresh water and hay for lunch. Then I came up and had my Chicken Noodle Veggie soup that I made. Was it good, and best thing is, it's kinda really low calorie too! Need to shed that holiday binge eating! LOL!

Today is nice but tomorrow night is will start turning cold again. We will need to put the blankets back on the horses. The freezing temps will be around the next four or five days. I worry about these quick changes in temperatures too. I have four cats that I kinda adopted...so I had to put in a kitty door so they could come in from out the cold. We had a stray mama cat that had three kittens in April. We have been feeding them ever since, so they just hung around here. The kitty door is in the wash room, so we keep them in there. I am getting the two males fixed on the 25th. Then next month the two females will be fixed. Don't want anymore kittens. Stay warm everyone! I can't wait till spring! lol

I think horses are pretty resilient (at least, I hope so), so long as they're healthy and drinking enough. May see more colds and runny noses among them though, kinda like with us humans. Got a lot of sick folks down here, how about up your way? Flu, sinus infections, pneumonias, etc, really cranking up. You hope everybody is really really careful about visiting the nursing home, I'm sure.
We're definitely warmer, supposed to be up to 60 by friday, and the lows are warmer than the highs were last week. What swings! Anyway, hope you have a good wednesday

Glad it was only a dusting of snow, and not a foot or so. I think horses can tell when the weather is getting colder, they eat and eat and eat. Hay goes down fast then.
Some place far to the south in Wisconsin are calling for rain, we just have a winter storm warnings, can get up to 10-12 inches or 1...big difference. Hope its done by Thursday, Mikey has heart specialist appointment in Minneapolis at Fairview, not sure to find out what they are doing or actually do something.
Today was warm but not like yesterday, I seen 28 around 1, when Mike got home from funeral, the VFW sends its members when it is a veteran's funeral. Cloudy most of the day. Cleaned out another rabbit cage, and somehow forgot to close the door correctly, so tomorrow I will have to catch him. He friendly, so will not take long.....I hope. Cleaned up in chicken coop and put down fresh bedding, have one of my rabbits loose with the chickens. If we have 2 more days of nice weather I will have all the rabbit cages cleaned out.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Yep, don't like the big swing in temps either with the horses! But mine are kept in more than yours and under more of a temp control with the heater in the barn. Well we started out in the low 20's and did get up to a whopping 38 degrees up here on the mountain, they said downtown got to 41! I had the truck appointment and made out great! They finally got the new dealership owners into the Ford Owner Advantage program that Magerano had. So I got credit for my last servicing and have about $10 on hand, plus have earned my free oil change! It's like buy 5 and the 6th is free. Yay next one if free, that's like over a $100 savings. Plus they gave me my senior 10% discount again on everything. Got home and Honey and I went and played in the back yard and then the indoor. She ran like crazy! Then Paige got lunged, Indy got to free play and so did Bullseye. After that they got lunch of hay and fresh water. I came up and had my lunch finally at 2:30 and then relaxed the rest of the day!

Are you warming up any? Hope so. Looks like, from your FB pics, that you and Blue have been busy.
Not much here, we wound up getting a little light drizzle late afternoon, but it's a lot warmer. Working today so I'd better scoot. Have a great tuesday.

A Vote for You!!
So what kind of dewormer did Rocky get, because my horses make the worst faces after I give it to them. Most of the time I need to mix it with sweet feed or applesauce in a small round bowl, so they can not leave any in the corners.
Hopefully, some of the weather we got today will reach you, as much as I want to hog it all, I know I must share....a little bit.
Hey, it got up to 33 and bright sunshine.
Took my Mom to Ladysmith, first time she was out since 12 of December. We were going so told her to ride along, she seemed to enjoy it. My sister Kat, (Chance's Mom) said they were staying in DC longer, (had planned on starting back today, Monday), because of the sleet & rain tomorrow. Both her girls are teachers, and pipes are broke at school....500 and some students and only 2 working bathroom stalls. So kids were sent home. She might head back on Wednesday....or spring time which ever comes first. :)

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. For those that asked, no Mo will not be coming a house cat! Although Honey did look for him last night! He's a barn cat with a job in there. And cat's and people with asthma are not the best house mates! Well warmer today, high was like 26 I believe, but nasty damp raw out there! We did get a little sleet, snow mix this afternoon. Don't know how icy it is yet, as I still have to do pm feeding of the horses! But did get to town and got the papers for the rescue retreat and then did some grocery shopping for everything needed to make some homemade chicken noodle soup! Crock pot style of course! Didn't get them to indoor, like I said it was nasty raw out there and bone chilling! So did lunch of hay and warm water about 1:30 pm. And that's just when it started to sleet! So Honey and I hit the house after that and just relaxed! Tomorrow morn, Tuesday have an appointment for Beast to go and get the fuel filter and water separator changed in the diesel and new windshield wiper blades. That'll take up the morning. Hopefully then the sun will be out and it'll be mid 30's and I can work them out in the indoor then. Marion and the blondes.

It was high 20's. Felt so good. Went out and my car started. Wasn't sure as it has sat since Thursday. Jax sees the farrier tomorrow. Nice to know the weather is going to be decent. Vicki & Big Jax

Glad the pipes are holding up. Glorious day here, temp got up to 58. Buddy cat was hilarious, he curled up under Jazz's blanket most of the day. Old Kitty got a good report from the vet, his bloodwork is pretty much back to normal and he's been a bit more lively the past few days.

Just want to wish you all a Happy New Year! We are finally defrosting down here. Today we had rain...but it is much warmer now. I am praying for all of you that are experiencing those single digit temps and below. My herd is doing well. They have had their blankets on and staying warm in the barn. We were able to remove the blankets yesterday. Hope you all get some warm weather soon. Take care and enjoy your week.

So glad your pipes are doing well. Yep, I think it warms up this week, so yay. I haven't seen a mosquito in a couple of weeks though, lol.
I rode Allie out in the pasture yesterday and she did well out there too. We loped a little and she was real good about letting me steer her (gotta dodge all the fire ant hills, which is a challenge). She seemed to understand the step around better yesterday after sleeping on it. We're still only doing one step and only to the left right now until she gets it pretty good, then I'll introduce going to the right and add more steps as she's ready. Might be turning into a handy little horse (except for her half-acre stop, lol). I was really happy with her. Trimmed her fronts afterward and it was dark by then.

Wish Jax thought his wormer was a treat. Heat wave it got up to 8 today. At least I have got a lot done. Saddle and bridle are ready for spring. Hopefully I get to ride before then. My outdoor girl (cat) went out and couldn't decide to stay out or come back in. Gave her 5 minutes and she was already waiting at the door. Will take a ride out to see my boy tomorrow. Before the snow comes. Vicki & Big Jax

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Awesome that the pipes are still running and no freezing up! Yep heat wave coming. But not without the chance of some snow tomorrow afternoon. Then by Wed thru Fri or Sat, could be the mid 40's! YAY! WOW started out at -04 with chill factor of -14! But mother sun was out and it warmed up to 15 F degrees and the wind died out! So I was out there on the tractor and cleared the rest of the drifts from the driveway and made my wall! Then I got Paige and Indy lunged in the indoor, it was 30 in there, nice actually! Bullseye got to free play in there. Then fresh warm water and hay for the kids. Honey was out a few times and ran the back yard where there aren't any drifts. And yes, Mo came up to the house last night! I actually carried him up from the barn when I finished chores. He spent some time with us and then I moved him to downstairs again. He has a little box down there and water. Although this morning he was drinking and picking at Honey's food in the kitchen again. She just looks at him and don't chase him at all, even when he eats her food. She's made such a huge turnaround in the last 15 months! Marion and the blondes.

Glad you're warming up and the pipes are OK. That's always a worry when it gets so cold. Very windy today, have some rain coming in.
