How We Met

We needed a horse to keep Rose company and for my mom to ride. Sadly the people we bought him from said he was trained well, but he barely knows anything and is really stubborn. He is a Pony of America/Arabian cross.

I’m going to have to keep you waiting a little longer…have to put this part in first! By the way did I mention that Susie is 15.3 hands! When she bucked my husband off he made a complete flip over her head and landed on his back. lol We can laugh about it now because amazingly he was not hurt.~~

At the end of 2006 my husband purchased his horse Lollipop. So we both began riding Lollipop because she was a much older horse. We didn’t ride Susie then, but would let others ride her if they were brave enough to try. Then in October of 2007 we purchased Gypsy for me to ride. Gypsy was already trained, she did trail rides and was ridden in parades before. This worked out well we both had a horse we could ride. All the while we would pamper Susie. Susie was a horse that everyone just loved to be around. She is just so good natured. Everyone that sees her falls in love with her.

Now here comes the surprising part about Susie…
When my husband and I started riding Susie we learned she had a problem. She would sometimes out of the blue start to buck. It was not quick short bucks, it would be a head down, ass all the way up, throw you completely off buck. It would not be all the time, just sometimes. But you never knew when. We took Susie to a trainer for 30 days, thinking she just needed some work. He also gave me some riding lessons, since I had no riding experience. The trainer said that Susie was already well trained. She had proper head set, she knew how to side pass, open and close gates. He didn’t experience any bucking. However one of his helpers rode her to the store one day and on the way back she bucked him off. We got Susie back and began riding her again. She bucked my husband off the first time he rode her. Then later on I rode her in the round pen and was bucked off. Mine was a little buck…she was gentle with me. lol We later let the guy we leased our pasture with ride her. He took her to herd some cows and had no problem. He rode her another time in the round pen and she began bucking. Another time a group of kids were riding the horses around the pasture and we let a young girl ride on Susie. She did fine, no problem. It was a mystery to us why she was behaving this way. (Leaving votes all around.)

Good Morning vote from my girls. We got our hay up last night....big bales....just before it rained all night. It really sucks not having your own equipment, but it hardly pays when we have only 5-6 acres field to make. Just glad our neighbors help out.

I didn't mention it but I am leaving daily votes all around. Hope you are enjoying this 4th of July weekend! Thanks for your support!~~~

My story continues:
I had said when they first got the horse that I did not want to have to feed or take care of the horse. Well now my daughter was not going to take care of the horse, so I started going with my husband to feed and care for the horse. I can remember the first time I actually fell in love with this horse. I was alone with her and I was grooming her. I looked into her big deep dark brown eyes and it was like I could see clear to her soul and like she could see mine. She touched me in a way, it brought tears to my eyes. I have never experienced that before with any animal nor have I ever felt that with any of my other horses. I truly feel that Susie was destined to be my horse. I don’t think anyone else would have cared for her in the way that we have cared for her.

Here's a vote from Buddy!

It's been a long time since I've logged on and blogged last. I have been so busy, even tho I haven't been up to a whole lot. Lots to update, so I will try and shorten it as much as I can, so it's not a super long novel!

To start with, Buddy is good! I have moved him to a new place, it's about the same distance as the other place, just in the opposite direction. I decided to move him because the place I had him at wasn't the "safest" and they didn't really listen to what I, as a boarder, needed for Buddy. The new place he is in a smaller pen, with another horse but is way easier to catch, the old place he was in a big field, with access to the back quarter section (string of barned wire for the gate just laying on the ground for them to run across,) with two mares, so I couldn't catch him. Plus, they only had barbed wire fencing (not my fav) and Buddy slipped one day and I watched him slide right into the fence and scrape himself up. Thankfully he was ok! This new place has no barbed wire, except for the perimiter of the 60 acre field, which Buddy has no access to unless I want him out there!

I FINALLY got a job in June (other then selling Scentsy!) I now work at the local Greenhawk Equestrian store here. I am super excited, as it's a horse store, but I still get to be around something I love, plus I get a discount! It is only part time but so far it has been awesome. And I will defintely learn lots there, and have learned a few things already.

Buddy's bumps on his cannon bones have seemed to gotten bigger, or the one on his left front seems to have anyways. So I will be getting a vet out to look at them sooner or later. They don't seem to bother him that much, but I know I first noticed them when I had him at the barn while I was working there and they haven't gone away. I was told they are splint bumps, which sounds terrible and scares the crap out of me.

I have updated pictures of him, although, he looks the same. I'm supposed to be going out to see him tomorrow, so I will be getting more pictures of him then. If I don't update his pictures tonight after blogging I will most likely do it tomorrow as I don't work & my computer has been acting up lately.

I hope everyone has been good and have been enjoying time with their horses. I hope the weather has been cooperative and not too hot!!

Susie Dell Meyers is a AQHA registered quarter horse. She was born on March 15, 2001. She was only 5 years old when we purchased her. She is out of the Poco Bueno bloodline. My daughter was all excited when she got her horse. She purchased all the necessary equipment and supplies. My husband was teaching her how to ride and care for the horse. My husband owned horses before when he was young and later during his previous marriage, his children had horses. Well probably no more than six months down the road, my daughter figured out there was a lot more to horses than just riding them. She gave up on the owning a horse idea. This is how I became involved with Susie.

Let’s begin where it all started. I have never been involved with horses before. The closes I’ve been to a horse was when I was young, my cousins in Kenner had a horse. I rode on the back of it once or twice. Then in my later years, my sister got a horse. We were both married with children by then. I was in my late 40’s when I got Susie. Although Susie was not my horse. She was purchased for my daughter. My husband purchased Susie on June 9, 2006, because my daughter had been on a trail ride with some friends and decided that she wanted a horse. We saw an ad in a Quick Quarter, a weekly advertisement. So we went to take a look.~~~

Have a happy 4th of July weekend! Left a vote.

This run for HOTM is going to be for Susie. She deserves the recognition since my world of horses all started with her. Without her I would not have known the joy and the beauty of horses. So the next 30 days I will tell her story.

Harvest is 3/4 done, very tired, it's a nice crop this year Lilly and I enjoy eating cherries just about every night, toying with the idea about loading her up and trailering her into HoodRiver just 10 miles away to the Saddle Club Trail course challenge this weekend on the 27th, not sure how busy we will be and it's suppose to hit 106 * on Saturday, insane for Oregon, I think I will give her a bath on Friday and see what Saturday is gonna look like, it would be kinda fun I think, it would be a first of any kind of competing for us. Love Suz and Lilly

Sadie has a shade. I wanted to put the tarp up, for more shade. Rick's using it, though. The heat doesn't seem to bother her. She stands in the sun a lot. She is enjoying that mister, though. She backs her butt up to it and stands there. Love and a vote.

This heat. Living in the desert, it's expected, but geez! Lol. Scruffy's ac is on, from early morning, until late at night. I filled 2 water bowls for him. Sadie's mister is on and staying on. She backs her butt up to it and loves it. Suppose to reach 115* today. I need to put the tarp up, on her shade, to help keep the sun off of her. She hates it, because it flaps when the wind blows, but shade is shade. Hoping you're all staying dry and cool. Love always and a vote.

Miracle's update:
Healing Hearts Animal Rescue and Refuge.
"Friends, it is with heavy heart that we bring you the news of Love's passing. Once we got her safe to our refuge, she started to seize. She had been carefully and thoughtfully examined by 2 vets, as well as monitored 24 hours a day by our staff. We agreed that she needed to be set free, as not to harm herself and to be allowed to pass with dignity. She was surrounded by people who cared, loved and honored her life. She went over the bridge under the warm sun, in the arms of those who saved her from abuse. She was not alone." Love and a vote.

It has been spring here had a 15 minute storm around 8 last night, thunder lightning and a soaker rain, pretty refreshing this morning, the other night we had hail rain, thunder and lightning, that one lasted a little longer with alot more rain.
Made another trail obstacle took Lilly 2.5 hours to finally go through it, it is a gate of those swimming pool noodles, kinda cool, can't believe she was so stubborn especially because of some of the tree branches we ride through in the orchard, Maybe because she can't eat these as she passes through LOL Hope you all have a lovely week, love Suz and Lilly

A quick hello and to say things are happening around here-some good, some not so much. Horses are healthy and being stubborn! Bought a new trailer because Bub had that accident in the 3 horse slant and refusing it because he remembers but is also unsure of the straight load I bought. Dad in and out of hospital and being needy!Etc, etc, etc! Not gonna bore ya with details. I am having female problems though-am going to the dr next tuesday. Business venture is slowly coming along. Mrs. Prego (daughter) doing good! Baby shower May 2nd. I miss being on here but so darn busy! GRRR!! I hope everyone is doing good and wish everyone well. Thanks for not "kicking me to the curb" and forgetting me. Everyday I'd love to get on here. I haven't even had time to ride yet this year!! Hope to be on a regular basis soon. Take care and love to all!! Cindy, Bub, and Bee
