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.

MACKIE NEVER GAVE UP....
After the treatments for EPM, he was coming along nicely, with the help of Stephanie on the ground I was more and more confident with him, we did a lot of lunging and pole work. He had a tiny episode of ulcer due to the meds, but hey, after what he had been thru that was nothing. He was building his muscles and getting back to regular work plus as you can see from the picture on his profile page, he looked great. That picture was taken about a month before he died. Have a great day, we left a vote.

I feel like I should be saying Merry Christmas....well, we did get snow. First 2 days mostly rain, but north of us, schools were closed because of icy roads and conditions. My flowers are all hanging their pretty little heads and I think they were make it. Had 23 this morning, and I don't think it got above 30 all day. Just getting on HC and it is nearly 10 pm...time for bed. Mike had dr. appointment in Ladysmith this morning for physical. Mine is tomorrow, could not get them the same day.
Mikey went the other way to Marshfield, and will pick up some meds for the calf. Nearest Farm store around.

I went to Tractor Supply, yesterday, because I needed more Freedom 45. They were out, so I bought Celebration Spot On. Don't think it's working well, because Sadie's swinging her tail around like a fan. The flies are pathetic this year. Equine fly spray doesn't help. The vaseline is helping Sissy. Just messy. Bought 2 fly trap bags. Putting those out, today. Dang egg ranch. Love and a vote.

Sucks when the weather is nice and you can't get to the barn. Big breakthrough with Sunset today. She played hard to catch. finally got her haltered and decided to try and "send" her into the trailer. With a little encouragement, she hopped in, turned around and stood there quietly. Unloaded her, asked again, and she hopped in, turned around, and again stood there quietly until asked to step out. Cisco prefers turning around and riding backwards, too. Still 90% chance of TS Sat.

TEST WAS POSITIVE..
Thanks for reading my stories, it really is sort of therapeutic, I can't bring Charlie or Mackie back, but in my heart I know I will see them again. I have always said, if it wasn't for bad luck, I'd have no luck at all. The EPM test came back positive. That just means the horse has been exposed, and stats show that 70% of horses in our area are exposed. But protocol was if you have a positive test and symptoms, treat, so we did. Treatment was successful and as Dr. Cook said, just chill..recurranceses do happen but are not common. You guessed it, so another round of treatment. Even this was not the end of Mackie, he was a fighter, and such a willing partner. After the treatment, getting back to regular work was like starting all over again, they need to learn "muscle memory" basically re train their muscles to work the way they should. That was when I found Stephanie, she was my coach and eyes on the ground. I have to say I was nervous, because before the treatment aside from the stumbling Mackie fell, while I was riding, I did not want that to happen again. Life was good again, we left a vote today.

Yeah, you'd think the teeth would be more uncomfortable. So his tail will get a work-out, lol.
Rode Allie, just at a walk since it's still damp and a little slick. I finally got holes punched so her breast collar fits and I used it for the first time. Of course, don't need it riding in the ring, but just getting her used to it.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Rocky, be brave, the sheath cleaning is no big deal! Indy loves it! Hi Tech would kick you to pieces! He too had to be tranqed to do him! Well got the truck all hooked up and packed this morning. Let me tell ya, Honey is ready to go! OMG she's been going to the truck then the trailer, which one you want me in mom! Gave the boys some hay for lunch and then left with Marissa to go to the vet clinic and get the three boys all fixed up! Banjo was power float for his bad teeth. Cruiser and Bear were stifle injections and front fetlock joints also! They both will be ready to show then on Friday. Got home and turned Indy out in the baby pasture for like an hour of grass. Last he'll see of it till Monday. He'll be going in a dry lot with a hay rack with hay in it at Marissa's. Well thanks for all the good wishes for a good show. And we'll be back on HC Monday night!

MACKIE SETTLED IN VERY WELL..
It seemed like he had always been there, Sterl loved him and Jackie was a happy pony. Mackie was a nice ride, easy to rain, learned to canter very easily and we were starting little cross rail jumps. I guess what I noticed first, altho it was very subtle, he felt like he was unsure where to put his feet, and he stumbled a lot. I know, every horse will stumble, but this was a lot...first I had his farrier check him out, all good there. so it was a Dr. cook visit. After a physical exam and a neurological ground evaluation he drew blood to test for EPM...tomorrow's saga, we left a vote.

Does Rocky mind the vet?? My younger horses could smell him, and he has a laugh that they must have know, because they would run to the far corner of the pen and stay there.
Beautiful day today. Did alot of jobs outside, let the baby calves out, but only one went outside and ran around. But because it was so nice today, tonight there are "winter weather warnings" out for snow, ice, and freezing rain, just north of us. Mother Nature is surely fickled.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Hope you don't get any reactions to the shots Rocky! Really glad that I got all I did done yesterday. Cause today was a wet one for sure! So I did house work to get the place vacumned and dusted before leaving. I hate housework! Boys got groomed and hay for lunch. Therapy this afternoon, after running to Harmon Drugstore for stock up items for the trailer. Then to therapy. Home and in the house, it was pouring out! Tomorrow morning I'll hookup the truck and trailer and pack just about everything else I need too. Just pray it's not raining. Then going with Marissa to the clinic with 3 horses. She has to pass by the place so I'll get picked up. Should only be about a 4 hour trip all totalled. Marion and the blondes.

BRAY OUT MACKIE IN...
If you go to Mackie's profile page you will find out about him. Basically I have to say, he was the Standardbred version of Charlie. Such a nice horse, his life was a struggle, I miss him everyday too. Sterl loved him and Jackie did not have to be protected. I put a bunch of his pics below. Life was good, for awhile.

The vaseline helps on Sissy's ears. I put some on Scruffy's nose, because the flies have been attacking him, too. In the 90's. Going to be turning on Scruffy's ac, soon, and hoping he and Sissy will be nice and share the doghouse. Need to build a new doghouse, too. but will patch this one for now. Love to all and a vote.

Thanks for the compliment. Allie does have an incredible mane and forelock for such a little horse.
Glad you were able to ride yesterday (aka: sit on your moving couch, lol) and take the dogs with you. Therapy for everybody.
We had off and on rain yesterday so no riding (2.9 inches over sunday and monday!). I brought BJ up and trimmed his feet, but otherwise stayed pretty domestic- groceries, homeschool, throwing some stuff out.
Well, headed to work today. Hope you have a great tuesday

Good for you and Rocky, a nice trail ride sounds great.

We had a nice, but very windy day. Clothes dried in record time, hung big heavy rugs out, (Too heavy for the lines,) hung them over bench and picnic table. Little chicks have their new home well broke in, the found the ashes, which are in one corner, and made good use of dusting their feathers. Would like to think of moving out the younger ones, but we are suppose to get down to a low of around 23, snow and raining all this week. Highs are only around 39-43. I better remember where I put my mittens last. I still am wearing my winter boots, but I never knew they were this heavy, in the winter time.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Oh so happy you were able to make a little time for yourself and go for a nice trail ride! I bet Blue and Shiva enjoyed it too! Well even though it was overcast and kinda not nice, I did get a lot done! First was therapy this morning. Go again Tuesday afternoon and that's it till I get back next week. Then have 4 more weeks 2 days a week. I really feel it helped 100%. Got home and got all the weed whacking done. Then broke for lunch. Then attacked the lawn and all around the indoor and back by the manure pile! All done, wish I could get those two unused pastures mowed, but not gonna happen now! Boys were out while I was mowing, about an hour in their pastures. Marion and the blondes.

Last day of packing? Sunset was so good today. Was planning on having Scott shut the door with us both in, but instead tied her to the blocker, rubbed her, walked out and closed the door. Left her in a few minutes, then opened the door, walked in and untied her. (Scott was out there, and kind of stayed in back to encourage her to stay in the trailer).

Did you get a ride in yesterday? Sure hope you could.
It got cold (for us) and rained most of the day yesterday and last night with a lot of wind. Brrrr, bring out the coats again. The horses were feeling their oats in the chilly wet weather, hence the action shots on their profiles. It had the opposite effect on me; I just wanted to nap, lol.
Well, hope your week gets off to a good start.

LET HIM GO...
Finally after 4 years of working and struggling with Bray, I decided that we just were not going to make it as a team. I started to hunt for a new horse for me and a great home for Bray. I settled on a young lady, she was likely an intermediate rider, BUT she would be boarding Bray at a large show barn, she had a coach and tons of support around her. I said my goodbyes. She kept me updated. She was enjoying him, however, three weeks after she got him, on a fresh slightly frosty morning he was turned out into his paddock, which was on a tiny bit of a slope. Apparently he was acting up, go figure...he took a bad step and they think he tore a patellar ligament (stifle). No one noticed his problem until he was brought in that evening, on three legs. Long story short, after consultation with 3 Vets, his prognosis was poor to hopeless, she was advised to let him go. She called me to tell me the news and asked if I'd like to be there, she said he was more my horse than hers. I declined, but I did go to say good bye one last time. We left a vote today.

HI Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Great that you took some time for yourself and took the pups for a nice walk. I bet you and them relaxed for sure! YAY! What a day, weather was great! Sunny and a high of 72 degrees! I did feel very bad that I wasn't home to get the boys out for pasture time however. And that Honey was alone for 7.5 hours, and didn't do anything wrong in the house at all! She's really a good pup! It was great to watch Laura ride Paige and do the horsemanship patterns with her, then they did some pleasure work, then the Ranch Riding pattern, which Paige is really good at. Then later on we did our showmanship patterns, mine is different from Laura's so I had to bad that half circle around the judge and got it perfect twice! Two for Two! Called it quits! Tomorrow early PT and then home and mow, mow and weed whack as much as I can! Rain for Tuesday, so it's gonna be a working day. Plus the boys will be out, they'll be happy! Marion and the blondes.

Glad you got to take a break from packing. Amazing day with Sunset. She was stand offish when I went out to catch her, so just ignored her for a couple of minutes and she came right up and was like, "Just put the halter on so I can get my carrots." Didn't put the feed tub in the trailer, but put in a hay net. Glad I did 'cause I noticed a wasp nest. Got that taken care of, then we loaded several times. Was good enough that I will have Scott come out tomorrow and close the door, if I back out, so does she. Unfortunately, calling for rain the end of the week, but that can change daily.

I did not get to go to the Horse sale, it is called "Central Wi Horse Sale" you can look it up. Have new owners now. I want to go, but I know I can not afford anything, even the gas to go down. So, Dominic and I cleaned out little room in the chicken coop, "tried" to figure out which of my month old chicks are hens and which ones were roosters. The word was tried. Hung light and made it nice, added sand, little perches, then put in 21 of the older chicks. Cleaned out the rabbit cage some of them were in. He helped me feed calves, but did not want to wash calf baby bottles and buckets. Then Mike took him to the show, and teased him he had a "hot date" meet him there. We took him to church with us and he can really sing good, and I told him I was kicked out of glee club, which he didn't know what that was. Singing club/class. When ever he is here, he gets the front seat because he says "Shotgun" first. Finally figured out what that was.

Glad you're able to take some breaks from packing to walk, and hopefully ride today. That's neat that you have a river nearby; are there paths along it?
The all breed fun show was a blast yesterday. The weather was great, no one got hurt or fell off, and there was a good turnout of both spectators and horses. The youth really love their fast horses and the speed events, that's for sure. And I met my first Missouri Fox Trotter in person. It was fun. We had a little rain last night so not sure I'll be able to ride today. If not, there are feet to trim and tomatoes to plant. Hope you have a great sunday.

I REALLY TRIED..
I wanted it to work out with Bray, I sent him away for training, I had coaches come in, bottom line, the horse had my number and he knew I was afraid of him and he played it every time. I got to be NO FUN riding and riding is suppose to be fun. In the end, I decided that I really loved this horse, I just didn't like him much. David didn't like him from day one. What I didn't pick up on until much later was, Sterl May didn't trust him. Look at all the pictures of the three of them together, Sterl May is ALWAYS between Bray and Jackie. I should have listened to her...live and learn I guess, have a great day. we left a vote.

Had a Norther (cold front) roll in yesterday evening. That's what had the horses so spooked. Thankfully, the really bad TS stayed N of us, they had softball+ size hail. We got a bit of rain, so was only able to halter Sunset, did some flexing, and turned them out.

There are 3 Marsh Tacky events across the state today, which to my knowledge has never happened before and hopefully points to better days for the critically endangered breed. The one closest to me is an all breed fun show, so I'll be helping at that all day, should be fun.

THIS IS BRAY.....
Fast forward again, in this segment I have to say, I learned soooo much. We were all settled in and I wanted a horse to ride, so after some looking(not enough) I bought Brazen Virtue, a 3 yr old Standardbred Trotter. I admit now I bought him simply because he was handsome, wrong reason. As a 3 yr old he was a piece of cake but when he turned 5 he became "the Horse Devil" One fresh September morning I was feeding, Bray was full of himself and as I tossed out a couple flakes of hay, I was between him and Jackie, I reached for Jackie's halter to move him away from Bray, and all I remember is seeing his hind leg in the corner of my eye. It happened so fast. He caught me across the forehead, my glasses went flying and when I woke up I couldn't find them, I didn't know what had happened, I crawled to the barn and called David at home, I said, can you come and help me find my glasses? I fell and they are gone? He came right away and of course scooped me up and took me to the emergency room. He said I was in shock, and insisted that I fell, however I looked like something out of a Freddy Kruger movie... 17 stitches and a nasty concussion. They said a split second either way and I likely would have been dead. Take a look at the pictures below and tomorrow I'll tell you what I should have picked up on from the start, it would have saved a lot of trouble. We left a vote.

Hi Rocky, here's a vote for ya. Well a nasty rainy day! Boys were in all day! Lunch of hay and fresh water for them. Anthony got here about 12:30 and it took us 2 hours to service the L/Q trailer. Lines flushed, hot water heater cleaned and turned on, batteries checked and filled, tires all checked and up to 80lbs. Earlier I took the two propane tanks downtown and got them filled, both were empty! All I have to do is just grease the fittings for the electric dual jacks, it was drizzling to hard by then to get any wetter than we were already! LOL! Took Mo the cat to the township rabies clinic for his free shot. Boy did Honey sniff and smell him when we went to feed tonight! First time I've seen her so interested in the little guy, all 16 lbs of him! Marion and the blondes.

MOVE IN DAY...
It took me the better part of a month and a half to get the place ready, once all the "junk" was hauled off and the fencing was done, the barn was cleaned out, we opened the end on to the pasture and made it like a large run in, fenced off a dirt paddock and we were ready. We had water, hydro, shelter and pasture, what more do you need... The day my neighbor mowed the 5 acre pasture for me, I cried, because it was so perfect, she was going to have a home, just 1/4 mile from where we live. My riding instructor "gave" us Jackie, a 7 yr old shetland/mini cross as her companion. They became fast friends. All was well with the world, at least my world.

Oi, tons of packing, huh? No fun, bit it is nice to go through everything and get rid of stuff. I need to pretend I'm moving and do the same thing, but it's hard to find the time unless you're forced to. Glad you had a spot of horse time though.
Not much here. I spent a lot of the day on the lawnmower yesterday, got some of the tomatoes planted (I only put in 5 or 6), and ran a few errands. No time to ride, but it's still a bit damp and slick anyway.
