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.

Mikey sent me a few pictures of his foot, swollen and red, one toe has a small sore on it. His foot is flatten and wide, because the drs. broke the arch on it, trying to fix his broken ankle. The said it was not broke for about 3-4 weeks, finally admitted, it was and had to put pins in. His creatin is only point 4 above the normal 1.0, so it means his kidney is working just slow. Creatin is the amount of "junk" in your body that the kidneys filter out.
Put the guinea pig and the Holland rabbit in the basement pens, other 2 are in cages in the shed. Bun Bun has alway been a "house rabbit", so she can not take what we will be getting this week. Not sure what day....not sure I want to know what day....but the high will be about 35-38, and snow. My brother in Alaska, sent some pictures of their front lawn, 4 inches of snow, so he said he would share and sent us in Wisconsin some of it. Then he will follow the snow in November around Thanksgiving time/ deer hunting season here. Hope your weekend was good, with alot of horsey time.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Well I think our warmer temps are ending this week! We hit a high today of 74 degrees and I just can't believe that on Oct 22nd it's that warm and just outside working in a t-shirt! Honey and I got in a nice 1.75 mile walk. Then I had to scrap the poop off of Paige's neck again! Seems she likes those warm pillows at night time! Took her to the indoor, she walked much better getting there and was sound on the soft sand! Just lunged her for like 10 minutes. Brought her up and washed her mane and tail really good and conditioned it, probably last time for sure this year! Then did Indy too. Then everyone went out for pasture time. I mowed the lawn all around the house while they were out, lawn tractor held up! But it's blowing oil, it's all on the frame of it, I have to wipe it down before putting it in the garage! Marion and the blondes.

1 1/4" of rain overnight. Loved seeing Jazz get down and really roll this AM, but when she tried to get up, she fell down. Took her another try to get up. Seemed to be fine, but as always worried about her. Lilly, Cisco, and Sunset look like they have been mud wrestling.

Had a good pasture ride on Allie yesterday , surprisingly. She had the zoomies on the lunge line, so I wasn't sure how the ride would go. We trotted a bunch of circles around her buddies (really fast trotting, lol) and then go rest away from her friends so I was gradually able to take her farther from them than usual. Whenever I wanted to walk and she kept breaking into a trot, I'd do a tight circle, and believe it or not, we finished the ride walking some fairly straight lines. Really fast walking, but walking
Hope you're having a nice weekend and some ride time.

Well, I "think" our summer is really over this time. Rained some today, and then very windy, next couple of days rain and temps dropping and calling for some highs to be around 38-40. Had to fork and shovel old hay and composted stuff from the last hay feeder into the guinea hen's pen. Lots of critters for them to find. The compost stuff, very nice black dirty already, I shoveled into the stuff I got from under the lean-to. Hopefully, the flowers will look as good as what my mind is picturing. Tomorrow, or Monday at the latest, the rabbits and Chewy go into there winter homes.....no I am not sending them to Florida like they want me too.

HI Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Well another cool start to the day, only 41 but went to 73 degrees! Honey and I got our walk in, then took hay to the barn. I dragged out the snow blower and turned it over, purred like a kitten. Like to do that at least every 4 or 5 weeks! Then took out the compressor and brought up all the fans from the barn and blew them off and out! Bagged them and put them away in the tack room for the winter. Got Paige groom and was just going to take her to the indoor to hand walk a little, she's sore up front from pulling her shoes. But my company came then. I friend that worked for the same company as me, but she was the VP's private secretary! We haven't seen each other since the early 80's! It turned out to be a nice visit with her and her hubby! She wasn't married back then. Went out to lunch and got home late. So the poor horses missed being out in the beautiful sunshine and warmth of the sun. But gave them some hay and fresh water. Tomorrow I'll make it up to them! Marion and the blondes.

Glad he's gradually healing up. I'll have to remember the Microtek stuff if I ever need it. The only problem skin I have so far is little Cinni. She gets fungus in the summer I think because she sheds so late and so she sweats more and doesn't dry out so well. In fact, she doesnt smell like a horse, she smells kind of musty, lol. None of my clippers can handle her thick coat though, so I occasionally wash her in a betaine shampoo. It helps a little.
Well, hope you have a great saturday and the weather is nice.

Scratches are sometimes hard to get rid off, specially, when it stays wet and muddy so long. Sounds like you have Rocky's beat.
Yesterday, didn't even have time to make comments, got the votes in and that's all.
Yesterday, Mikey called about 6:30, and need to go in to the hospital, because he thought/thinks his kidney is shutting down, and he was bleeding again. Mike drove him 4 1/2 hrs to Minneapolis to UN of Fairview, They are keeping him. Think that he might have a blood clot why his foot was so swollen up. Gave him blood, his count was down to 5 something, 7 is the cut off for going in. So he was very low on blood. Have not heard much today, usually he calls after it gets dark out.
Today, the car did not leave the yard. Except to get gas for the tractor so we could clean out the last feeder. Nice outside, rain tomorrow, but not going to complain, because we did have at least 4 nice days in a row.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Glad that you got the last of the crud off, but sorry about the one bloody spot, maybe that'll make it heal faster! Well cool to start again with a pretty good breeze today. But it keeps the flies at bay! LOL! Farrier said 9:30 the latest and it was right at 9:30 he got here! We now pulled the fronts off Paige, he was very impressed how well her rears held up without the shoes. She has very tough feet he said! So hopefully she won't chip up the fronts either. Unlike Indy who's a little softer! Back to using the Venice of Turpentine on him twice a week. Finished doing all my stacking today. The last of it will stay on the ground in the pile. Figure close to a good 5 cords then for the winter. Honey and I got a walk in of course. Horses were out all afternoon. Of course 2 houses over, George must have been deer hunting in the back of his property, you could hear the load shots! Horses didn't even care. I was out there in the barn doing stalls and checking them, they were fine. Got to the house and Honey was fine too! Marion and the blondes.

So glad the scratches are almost healed. Was going to ride today, went out to get Lilly and it started to rain. Have rain in the forecast the next 2 days. When I caught Jazz up to turn her out, noticed she had a lot of bot eggs (they weren't there yesterday), so got them all off and will ck the others tomorrow.

Glad the scratches are healing up. Are they being a bit stubborn about going away?
Ugh, ticks would be nasty, especially in large numbers.
Had a nice ride on Gracie yesterday. She has the sweetest little lope (I think I've said that before, lol). Her trot is a bit rough, but her lope, wow. It was a beautiful golden afternoon and I just couldn't resist a ride.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Glad to hear that the scratches are just about totally gone! Yep tick season sucks! Another one on the chilly side to start out and with some big time wind to go with it! Did warm up to 70 degrees, but the winds kinda hung around all day. Honey and I got our walk in, but not without her ears flapping in the wind the entire time! She looked cute! Stacked another 100 pieces, probably just about 150 more to finish off that area of stacked wood and that job is done! Ran to town and did some errands, got some really good buys. And stopped and my Ford dealers, spun the wheel and got a $50 certificate off my next oil change. So in 10 days my cost hopefully will be only $50, yes diesels are very expensive to do! Got home and got the kids out, they were out about 2 hours today, like I said very windy! But they went out in sheets! Farrier coming in the am to pull Paige's fronts and trim all around now on her too, Indy's a trim as usual! Stopped over to see Kevin. He's walking so much better! Saw the incision, it's about an inch long only! He's so much happier now that he's out of pain! Marion and the blondes.

Hey! Eww tick season! I don't like those things at all! I'm glad to hear Rocky's scratches are improving though. Sometimes it takes a lot of trial and error to figure out what products work best. I was able to get out and see Koot after work yesterday. I took him out for a bareback ride, then gave him carrots and apples once we got back. I can definitely tell the time change is fast approaching! It was almost dark by 630pm! That means that pretty soon I'll only be able to see him during the weekends. Voted. XOXO Danya and Koot

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Well another chilly start to the day, only 38 F degrees when we got up. But did get up to a whopping 71 this afternoon. Nice strong sun and just a very light breeze! Honey is a nut, this morning when I tied her out for her 7 am potty call, she climbs up on the top of the wood pile! Up about 3 foot high! Great balance and skills to do that and not get a paw caught in the pile! Honey and I got in a nice 1.75 mile walk later this morning. I did get another 100 pieces of wood stacked, about 200 more and that area is full, the rest will lay in the pile and work out it to burn. No more room for stacking then! Kids were out for a few hours in the nice sunshine, sheets on them with the breeze however! Tomorrow have to go to town for a couple of errands, maybe a ride after that! Marion and the blondes.

Everyone was good for the farrier today, till the horses in the pasture across the road starting running and bucking. We took a short break till they moved out of sight. Jazz and Lilly both got teeth done, neither needed sedative. Vet was late, texted her to see if she was held up, she called me back and said appt. was tomorrow. Ck'd her text, nope today at 11. No problem, did put on Sunset's breakaway halter so she'll be easier to catch tomorrow.

Rode Allie out in the pasture again yesterday. I was going to do some trotting but the herd was grazing in the back where the ground is kind of rutted and there are huge fire ant hills to avoid, so we just did more walking. We practiced straight lines and a little sidepassing, so it was another good ride. I also got another round bale to add to the collection for winter. Just need one or 2 more and we should be good. Hay is alot easier to find this year than last, thank goodness.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Well fall has gotten here! Or possible winter! Frost on the ground this morning, only 32 with a feels like 30! Did warm up with beautiful sunshine to about 58 degrees. Honey got her walk in for sure, I was bundled up! Then stacked my 100 pieces of wood. Finished my inventory on all my horsey grooming products from that corner, more than I thought I had. And actually have to more places I keep their stuff. I was a distributor for Healthy Haircare Products back when. So I have a lot of selling inventory left, I'll use it for my kids! Kids were out this afternoon! Gave Paige the day off, probably ride again Wed. Supposed to be about 10 degrees warmer during the day, but going down again near freezing tonight! They are sporting medium weight blankets! Kevin goes for his back surgery at 5 am in the morning, was over today with him. He's not nervous at all, can't wait he said to be pain free! Good for him! Hopefully he'll be home late afternoon! Marion and the blondes.

I enjoyed your pics you put up on FB from over the weekend. Your animals all look so healthy and handsome. Glad you were able to get Rocky and Blue out for a ride.
I rode Allie out in the pasture yesterday. It was pretty windy, so I wasn't sure how she would do because she hates wind, but she did pretty good. We're still just walking around, circling her buddies, stopping out away from them, doing a few hindquarter yields, taking it easy. And she was pretty relaxed the whole time, so I was happy. That's huge for her.

It sounds like the weather you are having cold and windy, then turn beautiful sunny, and Mother Nature, looks puzzled, when you ask about what kind of crap she is giving us. It was nice today, did not get too warm, unless, I was pulling tomatoe vines and harvesting more hidden tomatoes. Make 8 pints of green tomatoe relish, and blanched about 4-5 qts of whole tomatoes, but did not cann them yet.
Started bringing rabbit cages into the basement so the 3 bunnies can have a easier life, and then one for the guinea pig, Chewy. I fit the cages over cut in half 55 gallon barrels, so the dropping will be collected, sort of composting inside. Usually, I have to empty them about 3-4 times in the winter. Filled fish tank and added rocks, don't think I will add the pebbles and sand this yr. it is so hard to keep clean. Now if I can find my goldfish, all the maple leaves are falling into the pond. Normally, I put a screen over the top, and it makes it much easier.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Felt much better, but it's cold out there! Only hit a high of 54 F degrees! Going down to 30 F tonight, frost warnings are out! All set for our first wood burner stove fire tonight for sure! So I didn't get to stack any wood, but got tons of other stuff done. Even attacked the one corner of the Rec Rm and can reach the coat rack now and have all my horse shampoos and body stuff organized! Honey and I got a walk in for sure, but I did need my head band ear warmer and sinus protector! Winds were still bad then. But calmed down when I went to lunge and yes I did ride Paige and she was awesome for me! Indy got lunged. Then while they were on the wall I dragged the arena and fluffed it up again. Fed them lunch of hay and fresh water and finally at almost 4 pm said it's lunch time! But I did drink plenty of water today! Marion and the blondes.

Hi! How nice that Rocky and Blue got to go on the ride together. I'm sure Blue really loved tagging along even with the leash on :) I bring Tigger out with me a lot and he really enjoys it. It gets both Koot and Tigger exercised lol. On Saturday, I got to ride Koot's barn mate, Maggie. One of my friends really wanted to see Koot so I told her she could ride him this weekend and when we got there, the lady where I board said I could ride Maggie so we could ride together. We took them on the 45 minute trail and they loved it! Maggie was really easy to ride. She's a lot wider than Koot though so it felt really different, but was fun! They both had a great time being able to go out together. Voted. XOXO Danya and Koot

Glad you and Blue got a ride in. Yeah, it's a little aggrivating that the best time to ride is also hunting season. Makes you want to deck your horse out in strobe lights, bells, and orange.
We had a great visit with my family. Got to see Kathryn and her baby daughter (3 mo) and her step daughter (7 yr). My folks are doing fairly well. Mom likes her pacemaker, says she feels stronger with it. We got home with enough daylight yesterday for me to trim Allie's feet and feed/water everybody.

We have had some hunting days already, bow season mostly. I hate gun season because then there is hunting around us. Horse usually stay in, unless no one is hunting in the woods around their pasture. Better safe than sorry.

Nothing new here, except we are getting more RAIN....ha ha, we have been get rain all this week. Today the skys were dark and angry looking, but thankful the rain did not have the same temperament. But very windy and cold earlier in the morning.
This coming week, will be busy, because it is suppose to be nice. But Mike has a appointment with VA on Tuesday. Tomorrow Mikey has labs in Ladysmith, and then Wednesday a appoinment in Eau Claire, except for Ladysmith (30 miles) everything else is about 100 miles one way. Nothing is close to us.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Glad that you got your pedi! So you and Blue took a nice ride with mom, yay! Yep stay off the trails for a while! Well woke up to the misty drizzle again! This time it lasted longer! Wood guys got here about 9:45 with the last 2 cord load, so I'll be stacking some of it when it dries out. He said that it was really raining where the yard is and that's why it's so wet right now. No problem, it'll dry out! Honey did get her walk in, but of course half way through it, it started to drizzle pretty hard, so I got a tad bit wet! Honey didn't mind, she was happy to be walking! Didn't ride, just didn't feel right today. A little Vertigo acting up! I have to remember to drink more, especially now that it's cooler out, I forget to drink a good amount of fluids and it throws off my system! Hung out in the house with football.

Guess what it rained most of the day....like it done all week.
Cool and wet, so we cleaned out the garage and shed with Dominic's help. Tristan came later and picked him up, going hunting, and I got another peek at that little Ryder
Rained all the way to Church this afternoon, (we have 4 o'clock Mass) and all the way home. All the time I was doing chores, it rained, and even the horses had enough of it, they were in the barn when I went to call them in. Needless to stay, both my jackets are soaked. Started the pellet stove last night, got down to 32-33, and kept it going all day. Feels good right now, but then I am in the same room as the stove.

How did the farrier's visit go today.
Friday the 13, and nothing bad happened. Even drove up to pick up Buttons, 45 miles, picked up Dominic too. Buttons meowed all the way home, singing the Meox Meox song. Mike had to take my brother in law, to his dr. appointment. For once, the rain stopped for a bit, just long enough for Dominic and me to rake out some old grass and weeds and threw in flower seeds for next yr. Guinea hens all went back to their own house and pen tonight. Chickens and g. hens are all molting, so I have feathers allover the place.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Hope you got your pedicure today! Well today was a lazy day for me. Had to try and rebound from all of yesterday! Honey got her nice 2 mile walk in later in the morn. Then did a couple of things, and then since the weather got a little warmer, out went the horses! I'd like to get them out as much as I can when it's still warm and a little pasture left to munch on! They were out about 2 hours. Brought them in and then Honey and I took another short walk. That's my exciting day! LOL! Marion and the blondes.

You're right, independence is very individual with horses. That's encouraging that Rocky has gotten better about that over time, maybe Allie will too. She's pretty extreme in her insecurity, like she is in everything.
That's so cool that you have a farrier who can keep Rocky comfortable and sound with trims only.
I rode Allie out in the pasture again yesterday and it was much less eventful than the other day. Again, just at a walk, and she's settling in to walking quite nicely. I'll have to add speed eventually, but I'm enjoying her more relaxed attitude for a while.
I'm headed down to my parents' this weekend so I'll be off line until monday. Hope you have a great weekend.

Come visit me, Allie & BJ and his mom Gracie.

A Vote for You!!
Rained again nearly all day. I put out some pumpkin as decorations on the steps. Most of the day the rain was just likely...enough for me to get two jackets wet.
Mikey got out of the hospital today, Jennifer went to pick him up after she got out of work. We took Button(his cat) in to the vet for him, to remove her front claws, one paw keeps getting infected nail, and two she is scratching up his new wooden trim.
I canned 9 pints of salsa, new recipe, and I had just a bit to taste, and it was not too bad.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Happy Farrier day Rocky! Have to wait a week for mine, he's out at the QH Congress right now. He'll be home in a week for a week, then out there again for his family and horses to come home. OMG I was beat after getting up by 5:30 and being on the road by 7:30 am to get Kevin to the doctors appointment. Then of course we were 15 minutes late due to heavy go to work traffic near the towns close to the doctors office! Then it was an hour before we got out of there! Another hour and 30 minutes ride home. Got home right at noontime. Kayla texted and said she'd be here about 1:15. Okay, not really enough time for a much needed nap, so I ate some salad and went down and groomed and tacked up Paige, took her to the indoor and lunged her. Kayla got here just as I was finished lunging. Paige was good for her again! At the tail end, Kayla even took her bridle off and did some turns on the haunches and walked her off just with the neck rein around her. She has such a way with them! So soft! As if I wasn't tired enough, I had to run up to Wally World and do some grocery major shopping, or no crock pot cooking this weekend! Got home and napped for like almost 2 hours before night time feeding. Still feed tired however! Marion and the blondes.

Hope the other heel is healing up, maybe ask the farrier if he/she has any rec. Not much horse time today, had a sick kitty, so spent a lot of time at the vet's (UTI), then Scott had some errands to run in town. He's not allowed to drive till 2 months post surgery, so I get to drive him.

Come visit me, Mystic, Cisco, Angel Meg, Bo (RIP) and Jazz THANKS FOR HOTM! & Angel Nugget.

Glad his scratches are healing up and you were able to bath him in the remedy. Yeah, can't believe the heat this October, just as warm as summer was. We had 90 yesterday with high humidity, had to peel out of my clothes like a banana.
Allie is SO insecure without a buddy is her problem. Whenever I ride, I have to bring a herdmate up too or she spooks and worries the whole time and doesn't learn anything. I put everybody up on the dry lot at night except her, so you'd think she would be getting used to it, but she hugs the fence line where they are all night and waits for them till I let them out. Such a baby!
I rode Miss Allie out in the pasture yesterday and she was much more relaxed so that we were able to walk straight lines without breaking into a trot. Ironically, she also had one big spook where she jumped forward (you know how wolves sneak up on you, lol) but fortunately, that didn't turn into a bolt back to her buddies. Gracie took a dive at her too and wow, with enough motivation, that little Tacky can spin! I wound up over her shoulders, but again, I'm grateful that didn't turn into a buck or more spinning. So all's well that ends well. And Allie got a shower after the ride it was so hot and steamy again. Everybody was sweaty at supper time.
Well, hope you have a great thursday.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. WOW just the right hind left to finish off healing! YAY! Think about getting some desitine to cover them up in bad muddy weather, it'll really protect them! Well a little cooler this morning and overcast. Honey and I did get our walk in, just in time. Sprinkles on and off all day long and cool and nasty. So Paige got lunged and then showmanship. Served up lunch of hay and fresh water and Honey and I hung out in the house then. Well actually I walked over to see Kevin, but he wasn't home! Turns out he went for blood work and something else to get ready for the back surgery hopefully next week. He called me at 6:30 tonight and asked if I could drive him to Bergen County for his cardiologist appt for the EKG for his surgery and check up. So we have to leave here by 7:30 am, it's about a 90 minute drive there! Taking my truck as we both don't trust his car! He can't drive that far with the meds he's on for the pain and detox! Just hope we're home by noontime, as Kayla will be here then to work with Paige and I. Marion and the blondes.
