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.

Good Morning vote from Whisper and the little herd. Very nice cool morning. I love the sound of the birds singing and the fresh smell of hay being cut and the flowers outside the window.

Sorry, I did not get to finish voting yesterday morning. It seems like always one more job. Then my son brought my grandson, Dominic down, who is 12, and always hungry. So I started making him breakfast, of fried potatoes and bacon. We went to brush the rabbits, and still working on Auroa's tangles....have to cut her fur down to the skin, since she is a long haired bunny and this spring got into cockburrs, and her whole body was one big mess. It is very sloooooooooooooooow work, 1/4 inch snips at a time. I think I found her tail. :)

Hope you have a good time with Rocky today. Will you ride or just brush him and hang out?
Didn't quite get time to ride yesterday, but I enjoyed spending some time with my daughter. After her doctor's appt we stopped at a coffee shop, one of our favorites that's only in that town, and that was fun. Turns out she has swimmers ear; didn't know that could be so painful.
The horses are all fat and sassy and doing fine. Hope you have a great hump-day.

The rest of this week is going to be so very busy for me. Deacon had to roll, so much for a clean horse LOL I will hose him down good Friday when I'm off again. He is such a sweet horse-lots of extra carrots as it is so hot here I feel like it cools his insides down ♡

It was suppose to be 120*, Monday, but only made it up to 116*. Cooling down to 112* and then, 110* later in the week. Suppose to be around 110* for the next 2 weeks. The air is hot. Thankful it's not humid, yet. Love to each of you and a vote.

The new profile picture is of Whiskey and Smooch meeting through the fence! He is doing very well and the kids love him, so does Susan. Deacon would whinny here and there the 1st 2 days but sense then he has been fine. Of course he is getting 100% of my attention so he is eating that up. Cliff has been working on framing in the stall area to reinforce it. We were going to add some metal to the roof area but mother nature had a different plan for yesterday afternoon ~ yes the heavens opened up and we got hit by another storm that graced us with an 1" of rain. We did get the 2 panels plus the gate panel situated around the stall so Deacon now has afternoon & evening shade. Deacon welcomed the rain yesterday because it has been so hot here. He had a spa day Saturday and lots of grazing time in the yard. Yesterday he was groomed and turned out in the yard again. It has been to hot to ride. I hope everyone has a wonderful week ahead ♡

So sorry I haven't been on. HC was down, then I had long shifts at work, making it impossible to vote. The wind was so hot when I got off work, Sunday night, my eyes burned. I came home, watered some of my trees, filled Sadie's water and splashed her butt with the hose. I got a dirty look, lol. What a brat. She's doing well, drinking lots of water. Thankful the heat doesn't seem to bother her. I started her on psyllium pellets, again. I mixed them with carrots and apples. She'd eat them without a treat, but I love to spoil her. And yes, I pay for it. Lol. Love and a vote.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Well I'm not liking these hot days at all! Today was like 90, so needless to say, horses didn't get turned out! I did get all the mowing finished in 3 days, so the place shouldn't be a hay field when I get home next Sunday night. Trailer is in place and half packed! Just need to put extra bedding and all their feed and hay in tomorrow. Then hit the road about noon time! Of course it's going to be another hot one! I don't envy them in that trailer! I lunged Paige and did showmanship. Indy got to free play. Then Honey and I went down about 3 pm and did hay and water. And by the way, Honey did a sit stay and watched me pick stalls, empty water buckets 70 feet from the barn and then I filled them and hayed the horses. She never moved! This little pup is so smart! Love her! Well, I won't be on again till next Monday! So take care, vote when you can for my herd and I'll try to check in on FB during the show. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Well it's hot and humid here too! So we're going to the indoor to work Honey, and she's off leash. She spots something out by the manure pit and takes off! Honey No! She stopped! Was about 40 feet from me by then. Said, Honey Come, she ran right back to me. Good Girl, treat for that. Then we worked in the indoor with some of the large doors open, more airflow that way. She never went near them! Now I'm getting Paige ready to lunge and ride, an hour earlier than normal time. Wanna beat the heat! Nope, my hay man that cuts my back field shows up to mow! Paige on the wall for 45 minutes. That field is right behind the indoor, don't want to be a dirt dart three days before a show! Got a good ride in then and some nice 360's out of her. We were both soak'n'wet in that hour! Turned them out about 4 pm, at least a little cooler and less bugs. I mowed the lawn around the house then. Supposed to be worse tomorrow. Probably will be hooking up to the trailer in the am and starting to load it up! Marion and the blondes.

Not looking forward to the predicted 120* on Sunday, and it's not even summertime, yet. It's usually hotter here than in Phoenix. Keeping Sadie's water filled, as usual. She knows how to wet herself down when the temperature's from Hell hit. We have beautiful winters that make up for it. Lots of love and a vote.

Many, many "moons" ago, when my hubby drank beer, he went out and came home with 7 goats...a story he never lives down. hee hee. Well, he gets gout from beer, so does not drink anymore, but he sure remembers those goats. They were not nice goats at all, no matter how high we made the pen, they would get out. Finally, after 3 years, sold all the babies to one guy, traded 4 goats for a 2 calves, Nixon and Nero, and traded all the rest for hay, so we did OK, but I did say, I would never want another goat, but Blizzard and Zero were nice, just did not fit in with pones that were afraid of them. It was hard at feeding time, because they wanted everything, they would run from chicken pens, to the pigs, to each horse pan, or where ever I heard me with the bucket. It was fun, another lesson learned, the hard way...again.

Sold my 2 goats yesterday, I think it was the right choice. It was getting harder to keep them away from chicken corn, and they would follow me around while doing chores....I think it was just to watch me, to know where I put all that corn. I found them in the chicken coop eating their feed, and even when I hid the guinea's feed pan in the dog house in their pen, they found it. But now they will be a little girl's birthday present. Hubby is still grinning ear to ear....:). If only the Pickles and Paisley were not so afraid of them. I was more afraid that the two goats would get hurt from one of the minis. No baby yet.....I think Mistit changed her mind.

Scruffy's doing great. He was so good at the Vet's. Had to say hello to everyone there. The vet's assistant was surprised when I told her his 10th birthday is in August. She thought he was 2. She said he's in great shape. He's an over aged puppy. Lol. Sadie 's pretty, nosy butt's doing well, too.... Busy work weekend, again. Longer hours next weekend. Will vote when I can. Love you all and a vote.

The mini flood in the living room was caused by the hubby, who was playing weatherman, again. Sure hope he does not take it up as a living. Same guy, who said was not going to freeze last night. Good thing I covered tomato plants, there was frost this morning, frost but no baby.
Ponies staying in at night so they can lay where it is dry and warm, sure is making a messy in the back of shed. This morning, "someone" decided to empty the barrel of empty feed bags, pull down another bale of hay, tip over water buckets, and I am sure they tried to let the rooster out of the rabbit hutch.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Well busy day today. The plumbing company man came by 8:30 to remove the busted water softner unit and install the new one. Took about 4 hours to do. So I was in the house most of the time. But got some housework done! I hate housework! Would rather shovel manure anyday! LOL! Then I weed whacked all around the property line of the house and fence line. Got done with that and Honey got her training lesson in heel in the indoor, doing very well. Then Paige got lunged and did showmanship. Since I have the pattern for the Regional Zone 5 show on Wed. We did that a couple of times, don't want to over drill the pattern. The free lunged Indy. Meantime Chicken Hawaiian Style was in the crock pot. Then took Honey with me to vote, she came in the firehouse, everyone loved her! Then she got to go to the feed store with me to get Indy's grain, she got a cookie treat from them, matter a fact they gave her a one lb bag of them! YAY! Got home and turned the horses out. Planing on mowing Indy's pasture when they came in. But No, a fleeting rain and thunderstorm hit, and It came in fast. So I had to book it to get the horses in. Got soaked of course, then 5 minutes later it stops! WEATHER! Pasture was to wet then to mow. Oh well, maybe Wednesday then. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

I finally got to ride Allie yesterday and she did so well, you could even say she was almost soft! Wonder of all wonders! I also got time to swim with Mattie and it was great to have some time with her. We always laugh a lot when we're hanging out, unless math is involved, then there may be a little crying, lol.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Well it was sunny, very breezy (but a nice cool breeze) and even though it hit 84 you didn't feel like it was. Needless to say, a gorgeous day and I never got to work the horses out! But I did get 3 hours of mowing done, still have three more pastures to do! Ran out of time, shower and off to my chiropractor for my adjustment. Then to Wally World and grocery shopping! Tomorrow could be Chicken Hawaiian Style in the crock pot! Yep, that's what I'm thinkin'! And the plumber is coming to put in the new water softner unit! So don't know how much I'll get done! But horses and mowing are on the agenda! Marion and the blondes.

Lol, cooling down to 111*, today. Bought a small tarp to put on one of the walls of Sadie's shade to block some of the hot sun, until I can get some more material to finish it. Trying to figure out how to put it up and hoping she won't rip it down. Lots of love and a vote.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Glad to hear that you got a ride in. Yep Sunday the skies were falling for sure! Well raining in the am. But did stop and slow down enough that I could get from the barn to the indoor without getting a bath! LOL! So Paige got lunged and then ridden. Practicing the patterns now for Ranch Riding. I wasn't good at memorizing things when I was younger, and it's getting worse as I get older! Two different patterns in back to back classes on Wed! Then I free lunged Indy and he got a few good rolls in too! He loves to hit the sand and roll around, he said it feels like he's on the beach! LOL! Got them done and hayed and watered them just in time. Started to rain and some thunder moving in. So to the house and put Honey's ThunderShirt on her. Marion and the blondes.

Colts are doing good, of course it has been raining ever since. Not the cold rain, but yesterday late afternoon we went to a friend/family wake, and come home to Pickles laying out in the rain, I brought him into the lean=to until I could move the goats out, bring Paisley and Mistit in, and of course no really barn, just one large stall, goat(s), yep with a "s"....long story, how I thought one goat is lonely so I got him a friend, now I have 2...some people never learn. But Pickles was shivering and wanted to just lay down. I dissolved some SMZ's and a Bute tablet in warm water, and then mixed it into his grain. Did it again this morning, some for Clippers, both a walking good and a little swollen, but wanted to get out this morning.
