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.

Glad the adoption clinic went well. Chilly day, with wind. Feeling sorry for all those up north, sounds like they are in for a bad winter. We get cold, but then warm up. Sadly, they are putting rain in the forecast for the morning, and we are just now drying out from the last rain. Been feeding the calves horse hay, can't go get them bales until we dry out. At least we have plenty of hay this year.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Well it's colder than I like forsure! Mere 20F degrees this morning with an all time high of 25F degrees and snow squalls all morning! Sun did come out in the afternoon, but never got any warmer! And to think, all last Dec we had temps going into the high 50's and even 60's. What a difference a year makes! Didn't do anything with the horses today. I have a Christmas Party to go to, and have to feed them an hour earlier. So getting on here now and then shower and dress up, (clean jeans and a flannel shirt) and get ready to leave. Marion and the blondes.

Leaving love and a another quick vote. Still cold out, and snow on its way again. But the snow actually makes things warmer outside, acts as insulation. Got our square bales picked up and using them to line the north door in the shed, also some went to help out an old man for his water pipes/ and well. Unloaded 800 pounds of cracked corn for chickens, steers, and pigs, plus 300 of hog/pig into barrels so mice do not make holes in the sacks. on his well. Then went into the house and ate cookies... :)

No, not snow. I guess it is that time. Do you like to see snow around Christmas? We had a little one Christmas evening about 3 years ago, it was the first time our area had snow on Christmas in like 75 years. It melted off the next day, but it was pretty while it lasted.
Well, hope you have a great saturday.

Yeah, I bet it is chilly up your way. It was sunny today, though cool, and I really really wanted to ride, but I behaved myself and worked on Christmas shopping. I made a good dent in it and will do more tomorrow. The horses are fine with not working for a living, lol.
Hope you've had a great friday.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Yep, love my old fashioned box TV. My good buddy just got a 58 inch flat screen, lasted 2 weeks and kept going black! Takes it back, get another brand in a 60 inch screen, now that's having problems after 2 weeks! Who needs all that grief just to fall asleep with the TV going, it's like my tranquilizer! Well I'm not liking this weather at all! Very cold and very windy, like the high was 32F degrees with a chill factor of 22F! The indoor was like 38 degrees and no wind of course, but the doors were banging and clanging! Got Paige lunged and did a few minutes of showmanship, didn't strip blankets to cold for her. Indy got lunged and they we played follow the leader! LOL! Everyone got a shave and trim today. No more whiskers! Clean shavin'! It's 25F right now with a chill factor of 15F! And it's not even at the lowest yet! We had sun flurries on and off all afternoon too! I hate Winter! Marion and the blondes.

Made 2 batches of cookies yesterday after we unloaded firewood, did not go on second load, huge pieces of oak and could not take a big load, and the same as the 3 load, but did help unload them. Made peanutbutter with chocolate chip, no ch. stars, and also a batch of brownies, but put coconut in with chips, and turned them into cookies. My friend has been going to bring the duck and rooster for awhile, and yesterday they finally got here. And last night around 6 they left...her sister is jealous that I would get them, so now she wanted them. HaHa, but my friend said keep the feed. She knew along about them a long time ago. I had to put 2 of the younger guineas under the heat light this morning, I don't want to loose them, and it isn't like I don't have too many, but it's a life, even if it is a bird. Temps will still be dropping with more snow. So everyone safe warm and keep your snow shovels handy, just in case I call for help. :)

Thank you all for your support of my son's service and supporting my prayers that he'll be stationed close to me. Never thought, when I held him as a baby, that the day would come when he'd end up a world away. So many of you understand. It's not always the service, but life, itself, that destines us to live away from them. I'm at peace, because of God and His hand of protection over all who and that I love. Love, hugs and a vote.

Yep, it is cold, going to be colder tonight, windchill will probably be in the teens if the wind doesn't let up. Layers on, go out, come in to warm up, put the layers back on. But, it's supposed to be in the 70's by Tuesday. Bo is snug in her blanket.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Yep, I can't even hook up a DVD player to this oldie TV of mine! It's from 1978 RCA box TV! LOL! Hey it works great! I don't need a flat screen! Sorry you won't be getting in any riding time till possibly during the Holiday break. But then you'll be skiing in snow! Gonna get hit next week! Well it's cold and nasty winds again. So went food shopping this morning. Then worked Paige only. Spent almost 2 hours on the phone with my sister in North Carolina, it's her birthday today. Gave them lunch and I'm in the house trying to defrost! Marion and the blondes.

It's going to be very cold the rest of the week and colder next week. going to put hay in today, I hope. Have to go get another load or two of firewood. With the winds the house does not get too warm, around 62-65, but its better than being outside. Horses all have their long shaggy coats, and I know they are warm the way they were running around the pasture. Can not even let them in the big field, because the gates are frozen down. A gal is bring me a duck and a chicken today because she only has the 2 left, and no place to keep them warm. I will keep them in a pen, and then gradually let a few more hens in, and perhaps look for a mate for the duck...not sure if it is a hen or drake.

Lol, that so sounds like a mare. "Ain't no dumb gelding eating MY hay!" Gotta put the boys in their place, lol.
Not much here. Finally have a few days off together and have tons to do, as usual. Haven't hardly done any Christmas shopping, I've just been so behind. So probably won't be getting much horse time through the holidays, but will enjoy any I can get.
Well, hope you have a great thur. Take care.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Okay Blue, you're gonna be a star! WOW two classes and two new certificates to go for, excellent! Yep, he better get it right with Indy, this is the second time in less than 6 months that he went to short and lamed him up on me! Not happy, and neither was poor Indy! Well that snow that started last night amounted to about 2.5 inche of wet heavy snow! It took my Dish Network out last night, so no TV! Made it an early night to bed! It was slick and slippery this morning walking to the barn. On the bright side, temps went up to about 46 degrees and most of it melted! Managed to get them to the barn, free lunged Indy. Then lunged Paige and did showmanship. Everyone got a good grooming too! Marion and the blondes.

Hate to think of going out this morning...strong west winds 30 miles, plus, but the temps are around 12-14. Going to get colder all week, until the high will be 3....but at least it is above. Still getting snow, but it has slowed down.
Heating water now, for pigs feed, and also to thaw out the frozen water tubs for the calves, Jack, Harry and Harriet. Put the last bale of my Dad's old hay down under the lean-to for them. I was putting sawdust down, but it is too big of a area, so carried a few bags to the pigs in the calf hut, it was nice and warm in there. House was only 59 when we got up, I hope the the house thermometer is wrong.
Have most of the craft things done, few things to add, but had to wait until paint drys. What I do not sell I will send down to my friends, resale shop for Christmas.

Not sure the horses will share their treats. "Share" doesn't seem to be in their vocabulary, lol. Though Allie and little Cinnamon will share hay sometimes; it's kinda cute.
The rains moved out yesterday about noon, we've had almost 2 inches in 2 days. I haven't heard how the fires are doing, but things have surely got to be better, if not out, at least contained and not spreading. The horses look a sight with their muddy shaggy coats. But they still give me calf eyes for their hay, I'm sure you know the look, lol.
Well, off to work today. Hope you have a great hump-day.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. WOW that was a good training lesson for Blue to sit by then fence and contain himself, YAY BLUE! And good girl Shiva for following his roll and being quiet then too! Well had the farrier out today to shoe Paige and trim Indy. We had a discussion about how short he was from last trim and sore, and of course he says not his fault! Well when I brought him out of his stall to be trimmed, he says, he don't have any foot! Yeah hello! So he just rounded him off and said he was sorry and he'll be doing him from now on, not the apprentice! And it was no charge, it better have been, cause it took all of less than 5 minutes to round him off! Later on I got them out to the indoor for a run. They were both fine. Now I just went to feed and we've got over an inch of snow on the ground and it's coming down hard, heavy wet snow! They are saying 2 to 4 inches! I've had it already with winter and it's not even officially here! Marion and the blondes.

Snowing again, be will be getting another 4-6 inches. Trying to get work done, but all I keep thinking of is this is the day my youngest sister, (I had 8 sisters) passed away.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Yes, Rocky is really probably happy about the 20 lbs less the saddle weights for sure! Yep, try to sell it, there are some good sites on FB where you can advertise. Well got some errands down this morning, like getting to the other end of shopping at a different Walmart and making up my Christmas cards. Went to the bank, farrier coming tomorrow and cash means no tax paid to him! Got home and got Paige and Indy lunged with just enough time to shower and get to the Chiropractor for an adjustment. Got home and gave them hay and fresh water and called it a day and came in and still worked on defrosting from the cold weekend standing still in her indoor for like 6 hours straight!

I feel so sorry for all the dogs, (and cats) with no home. I know we have taken in more than our share, even now. But when Grizzly, (Tristan naughty kitten) starts climbing up my back with sharp claws, (like grizzly bear claws), I became to have second thoughts. It is a very good, no great thing you do for the dogs.

Sorry the adoption was so slow. Sounds like you had a mini project to work on all day in that little chihuahua. And a day to stay home. How rare is that? I always congratulate myself if the car stays firmly parked in the driveway all day. I get tired of errands all the time.
It rained all day yesterday, thank goodness, and stayed about 40 degrees, kinda raw. I'm sure my crew hated it. Looks like we may have more moving in this evening or tomorrow. Im so grateful. But it is muddy, so won't be riding or doing much outside. Guess I'll have to be domestic, ugh. I don't do well in captivity, lol. Hope you have a great start to your week.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Oh I bet that Blue and Shiva will be very happy to have new beds! Well washout at the tack sale today. Made a whopping $6. Oh well, did donate a pair of boots and a showmanship outfit to the South Jersey 4-H club. Everyone was donating stuff they just got tired of lugging from sale to sale and didn't sell! So they made out with everything from very high end show outfits, to a silver show halter and chaps, and so much more! Packed up early and went to lunch with a friend that shows with us, well her daughter does, Jill is close to my age, nice to have an adult to talk with about trainer issues! LOL!

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. First let me say, my email at 6:15 had me in tears. We are all sorry to hear of the loss of Charlie Bubbles, beloved equine partner of Donna Lee! Our Prayers go out to her! Just a few weeks ago the loss of Dear Cheryl's beloved Nugget, and now Charlie! So sad! On a lighter side, I did sell 4 items today at the tack sale netting $113.00. So that made me feel good. Back over tomorrow and see if I can't see a few more things. It was cold in the indoor and after a few hours I was feeling it, know to use my BOT long johns for sure tomorrow! Got home by 3:30 and gave the horses some hay for lunch and fresh water.
