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. Well the rain has held off till late this afternoon. YAY, so I got them to the indoor without any of us getting soak n wet! Paige go lunged in the bitting rig and then a few minutes of showmanship. Indy and Bully got to free run. Everyone got a good spa day too! Then it was shower and rest for me. With the temps being in the 40's during the day, my sinuses aren't really acting up. I'm happy about that! Yay, Indy didn't use poo for a pillow last night! Marion and the blondes.

Sunset is now wearing her halter. There were a couple of minutes of snorting and dancing around (evidently she knows a halter from a leadrope), but then she just stood quietly while I put it on. Didn't do anything else, will get her up tomorrow, hand graze her and do some grooming, maybe start on some groundwork Sunday.

Oh, that must have been funny, Indy following you "thinking" he would get left overs of peppermints.
I think it is raining everywhere. It is sort light rain more mist at times. At least, I can see that Harry, is getting more filled out, when he is wet you can see his top line and what shape his muscles are in.
Tristan is suppose to come home today from Eau Claire, where he is going to linesman school, and then tomorrow heading to Wausau to celebrate Camille's 14th birthday, her Mom's and Tristan is on the 24th. Side roads are icy, but highways OK.
If you go on my Facebook page, I have so bridle ID with charms that I brought for Christmas gifts, and then yesterday the ones came for Dave's honor. Some what necklaces and other bracelets, and keychains. The smaller ones, I am going to finish for the younger kids. They have a saying on "God has You in his Arms, But I have You in My Heart, along with his birthday and name, plus then Angel Wings and a Beer Cap Charms, some have cross charms. I have a link to her FB pages, very reasonable prices. I did put up a few pictures, but not sure if anyone could see them, I must have did it wrong. I will see if I have time to put them on Whisper's page later.

So glad Cowboy's eye is doing well. You hear about those injuries causing blindness sometimes if they ulcerate.
Don't know where my day went yesterday. Didn't get the chicken coop cleaned or any rides in. Errands, a little cleaning, a little homeschooling, and a guy came to fix the gas logs in the fireplace. But I was kinda bummed about not riding.
We're getting a little rain this am, then I think it'll clear out. We still need it badly, so I'm happy to hear it on the roof. Off to work. Hope you have a great friday at the barn.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Glad to hear that Cowboy's eye is doing much better! Well another overcast cloudy day, but at least got to 42 F degrees. Filled my several boxes in the garage with firewood. Since rain is predicted for all day Friday! Got some hay to the barn too! Lunged Paige and did showmanship practice again. Indy got to free play, but wouldn't leave me, I had a peppermint in my mouth and he thought he could kiss me for it! And he once again used a pile of poo for a pillow! Think I might just buy him a real pillow and be done with it. LOL! Marion and the blondes.

Really nice session with Sunset today. Was able to rub the lead line all over her, loop it over her neck and muzzle. Expecting to get the halter on her tomorrow. She even stayed with me a few minutes after she finished her feed, seemed to enjoy getting rubbed on.

Glad Rocky is doing so well on his Senior feed. I had started little Cinni on a Senior feed as well this winter, and she LOVES it.
Our warm morning turned in to a sunny warm day, up to 80. It was so surreal, like we had slipped into a coma and woke up in april. I kept looking for easter things at the grocery store, lol.
I did get to ride Allie yesterday and it's dry enough to safely work on loping. She threw a big toddler tantrum about steering at the lope so we worked on that a while and ended on a better note. Also practiced a few steps of sidepassing down the fence and backing. She's getting better and better at those. Overall, a good ride.
Well, hope you have a great thur. Take care.

A heavy rain storm is predicted for Thursday through Saturday. My hay shed's developed a leak, so I put a tarp over the roof of it. I hope there aren't any winds. Going to pick up an extra corral panel, or 2, when I can. At least Sadie will be happy. She'll get to roam the back of the property. Have and awesome day. Love and a vote.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Yeah, our ice wasn't that bad. Although the salt truck did hit the road this morning when I was feeding. But the yard wasn't that bad, nor my driveway. Well a little drizzle on and off, but the temps got up to 40F degrees, so the ice and snow melted off! Did get everyone to the indoor for some work! Other than that, it was a house day for me and Honey. Mo's hanging out in the barn and still not going near the door looking to escape! LOL! Marion and the blondes.

Glad Rocky is still doing well on the Sr. feed. Chilly and drizzly today, so just fed everyone. Break away halter came today, will start back into work tomorrow - supposed to be nice the next 10 days, although we'll be really muddy for a bit. Computer caught a virus last night, luckily I was on it, called tech support right away (Scott had to take over) and no harm done. Took nearly 2 hrs to get everything back, and of course, had to get new virus protection.

We had a beautiful winter day yesterday. Temps actually got up to 40, got some jobs done outside. Bedded down pigs out with loose straw again. They have a calf hutch, and about 3 feet of straw and saw dust under it all. Cleaned out some of the chicken coop, and added more leaves. They have ashes to dust them selves and it is right by the windows, so sun can warm it up....but they are the worst house keepers, even worst than me....they just throw the ashes everywhere. What they need is a 24 hr maid. Brought home another 20 small bales, just so the next cold spell which hits, I can feed under the lean-to for Harry and Jack, Harriet went in the pen with the other 2 steers and horses, so if she is not bred yet, she will not get bred, and end up having the baby in the cold weather. Now, it will be summer before they can be together. Even the horses love this weather, seen them galloping...short bursts of speed, this way and that....later sleeping in the sun.
Many schools still closed, electric out, but not where we are. We did not get not much rain, but did get snow.

So glad you're getting some time with your son, I'm sure you loved it. Our kids always have our hearts, even if they have to share it with our 4 legged babies.
Are you happy about the snows missing you, or do you need the moisture? We've had some rain this winter, not like usual winters though, and not like what we need after that painfully dry summer. I just don't want another summer like that back to back.
Well, hope all's well. Give Blue a pat on the head for me.

yo9u had to enjoy the visit. On and off rain today. Gave Sunset the day off, she didn't seem too happy. Every time I went outside, she was at the fence, looking for me to come out with carrots and lunch. Hoping she will appreciate me more coming out tomorrow. Breakaway halter should be here tomorrow.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Glad to hear that you had a great visit with your son and his wife to be. Well not much got done today! Did decided to go grocery shopping today cause of the rains! Got home and my hayman had been here took out a load of that bad weedy, dusty, smelly hay. But they forced the big door shut and bent a piece of metal on the bottom track! I couldn't shut it all the way or re-open it! And of course by then it was raining hard! Hack saw to the rescue! Didn't need that 1 by 1.5 inch of metal anyhow! LOL! Then of course the rains really got heavy, so it was just give them lunch and fresh water and forget about dragging them to the indoor. They were all nice and content in the barn. Tomorrow's another day of possibly more rain! We'll see what gets done! I really don't want these sinuses acting up and me getting sick again! Marion and the blondes.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Well when my equine dentist says 9:30 am I'll be there, he wasn't kidding. Right on the dot of 9:30 am! Paige and Indy were good to do and their teeth weren't that bad at all. Bullseye was his usual stinker self! Only thing he hates in life, having his teeth done! When Paul finished up, I brought Honey out to meet him. At first she barked and wouldn't go near him. 5 minutes later she was sniffing him and then eating doggie cookies from him. She's really coming along great! Didn't get much done, as I started with another sinus headache again today! GEEZZZ! This cold just kills my sinuses! And now tomorrow a freezing sleet and rain forecast! Oh well, just have to wait and see. Marion and the blondes.

Hi Friends from the Pacific Northwest, what a winter we are having, there's been snow on the ground since early Dec, and it still snows on and off, weve had almost 5 feet of snow, it has settled to 18 inches now, and we are in for a big warm rain towards the middle of the week, kinda nervous its gonna be a huge mess, Lilly and the Goat boys said they are done with winter, hahah I still manage to get them out for a walk just about everyday but it is only down our plowed driveway , Lilly has made lots of snow angels the temperature for the last three weeks has not gotten over 25* usually we hang around 19* this winter is really wearing me out packing water, we froze up for 4 days and had to use snow and snow melt, now that was a challenge, the barnyard and I are ready for some fun warmth and riding time, God Speed to everyone, love Suz, Lilly and the Goat Boys

We had a new priest, from Florida, but he was raising money for Haiti. My Mom said they have been raising money for Haiti, since she was in school, and she is going to be 01 yrs old. Makes sense, they probably use the Church as their income. Mom said they use to save used stamps, and the Sisters would sell them to collectors, and then gave the money to the poor.
Nice outside was 4 above, but should warm up to high 20's or even 30. We got up to 19 yesterday, but with that Mr. Sun, it felt warmer.

Slow progress, but progress. Can now lightly stroke Sunset's neck, and light rubs on forehead and cheeks (with treats, of course). Miserable day, fairly warm but mist/fog all day, supposed to get thunderstorms tonight.

Neighbors, I wish mine lived more than the mile away, because it seems, near every summer evening when I am riding they are either shooting their guns or fireworks, and if one horse gets jumpy then they all do.
I would love to have a wood cook stove, have to learn to burn things all over again,...just got that part down just right. :)
Nice outside this morning even if it -8. Frosty the Snowman, must have been busy all night long, painted all the trees and bushes in frost, and with the sunlight they sure sparkle....Mike said they were my diamonds, and then the slight breeze they fall down and leave giant flakes all over the ground, which lay thee and sparkle. Sun is out so day will be bright and warm....Whisper, Willow and Mistic are standing sleeping against the tin shed to warm up.
Dominic got to spend the night, so frying a lot of potatoes, bacon and cheese, which only Grandma know the secret recipe for it....love!!

I was hoping to ride yesterday but about the time I went out, my neighbor started cutting big limbs in his front yard, which is right across from the riding ring. The limbs falling really startle the horses, and in fact, they were well away from the road eating and still scattered in all directions.
Well, hope you have a great sunday

Rained some on Saturday. Was going to let Sadie out but went in her corral to see how the ground was. Not slippery, so her butt is still in it. Lol. She's mad. I know it's because she thinks she's suppose to be let out. It's amazing how much attitude she has. Gave her some carrots, loved on her, and now, I'm sending you votes. Love and hugs.

Step by slow step. Today she walked up to me from about 200' when I called her, then really looked at me and started to tremble. Talked to her, gave her a few carrots. Won't even attempt to halter for a few days - have ordered a break away halter for her. Maybe I can lure her to the round pen with a bucket of feed when we get a few nice days, maybe get her to join up so I can halter her. The pen she is just a bit to big.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Well started out cold and sun for a couple of hours. Got overcast then. I had a show meeting to go to at Marissa's for our show season. It was held at the local Italian Rest. and we had a Pizza luncheon/meeting. Lot of new ideas, some good, some I don't agree with! But have to go with the flow! And don't ya think, just as we're leaving, it starts snowing! We rode over with Marissa, got back to her barn, 5 minute drive, and hung out with Laura and her mom Jill a few more minutes, like 20! Go outside, and everything is covered in white! Not fun for me. Major roads were brinned, but not my home town road, that was fun with the dually! But home safe and sound. About 1.5 inches so far out there! Gave the kids lunch, 3 pm on time and came in the house and fired up the woodburner and hung out with Honey! Mo did make an appearance, but I was to slow to get to the barn and let him in. He's still out! Hopefully held up out of the snow! Marion and the blondes

Oh, I wish I had a old wood cook stove, my Mom cooked on one, and our house was always warm in the winter, and of course too hot in the summer. As long as it is not -25 outside and a south wind, our house stays about 60 which is not bad, sort of use to it, and "when" the sun shines, is feels warmer. You are not going to believe this but this week we should warm up, calling for 30's, it's call winter thaw. But that also means, getting more small squares, and loose hay for bedding in the pig houses, cleaning out some of the chicken coop, and getting things ready for the next cold spell. I think it would be or is worst in the states that normally do not get winter weather, and now have wind, snow, ice, sleet, and rain. The snow I walked threw this morning, just to see how deep it was...15-16 inches, and where it drifted, it was 30 inches, when t gets to be 60 inches, just the top of my hat/head will be sticking out. I will have to wear one of those little flags, so Mike knows where I am stuck in the snow. :)

Hi Rocky, Sorry I wasn't really on much this week to blog. Tax season is about ready to begin and there's been lots of prep this week and my new class started this week after 3 weeks off so I had to get back into the groove of doing classwork! But I hope you had a nice weekend! I was able to get Koot out for awhile on Sunday, but it was pretty muddy still. It rained Tuesday-Thursday this week so it's extremely muddy right now! I plan to see Koot both days this weekend, but I don't know if I'll be able to turn out or not - depends on how muddy things still are. If it's too muddy then he'll just get a walk around the streets. Next week, we are expecting MORE rain around Wednesday through the weekend :( How fun to do some wedding planning! Hope it all goes well. Voted. XOXO Danya and Koot

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. I remember when I first built my farm, I boarded for the public, at $130 a month, up to $300 when my last horse left 16 years later. No more boarder's now, too old to take care of other people's horses! LOL! Well the sun was out but so was the winds! Very gusty! And the temps dropped over 16 degrees in a matter of hours! Did get them to the indoor for some exercise, but the doors were banging and I wasn't about to ride! Erin, who is partners with Steve where I adopted Honey from, stopped by today. She couldn't believe how awesome Honey is looking and how well she listens to me and just hangs out! Honey did many sit stays to show off. And she gave Erin a few kisses too! It was a fun day for Honey! Now if Mo would just come home tonight! He took off yesterday during the daytime in the nice temps, he'll freeze tonight out there, going down to 20F! I'll be calling for him till whenever, hope he hears me! Marion and the blondes.
