How We Met

Cimarron was a gift horse. He was an accidental baby, and he spent the first eight years of his life wild and untrained. My aunt obtained possession of him, and she spent a lot of time working with Cimarron. He acted feral - he bucked and tried to cow-kick his riders. Rather than enter a horse trailer, he repeatedly reared up and flipped over backward, beating himself up in the process. Cimarron eventually quieted down and served as a packhorse for many years. I met him in November 2007, and in July 2008, Cimarron injured himself in the pasture. He subsequently retired from packing and has been my treasured friend ever since..

Hope Big C and Olive are doing well. Are they the only 2 left in the pasture? Any horse plans for the weekend?
I was going to go down to visit my folks this weekend, but Mom called and said she's getting over a cold, so I'm hoping to get some work done on the deck. And I have some hoof trimming to catch up on.
Well, hope you have a great weekend.

So nice to hear from you. Have been wondering. Yes, we lost sweet Bo last week. The vet said she's been waiting for that "horse down" call ever since I got her nearly 2 years ago. Hope Big C stays sound for you, maybe a bit of arthritis? Olive/Juno sure has grown, but then, isn't she part draft horse?

Hey girl, good to hear from you. Glad you're out of school this summer, you need a break here and there.
Glad Cimarron did so well and listened to you for the kiddie ride. It does make you feel good. Gracie was a kids horse yesterday too. Someone from church brought their 2 daughters over. Only 1 rode (the other was very young and timid), but she rode and rode and rode. Gracie did the same thing; she kept looking at me to see what I wanted her to do. Sweet mare.
The project is a small deck at the side of the pool so we can get in and out easier. I finally figured out how to get the pool water clear, and it looks great, but we've hardly been able to use it, between being busy and afternoon Tstorms.
My sister in law is home and doing okay. She's still battling a lot of nausea, not sure why. Maybe it's the antibiotic at this point. Well see what her doc says when she has a follow up with him.
The other horses are fine. I'm really getting discouraged with Allie. Other people have been posting vids of their early rides on Tacky colts, and they're doing more on their 5th ride than we can do after a year and a half. Sigh. She's just so different from anything I've ever worked with.
Olive-Juno is kinda making Cimarron look small. She could still grow another 2-3 inches before she's done. And then fill out, wow.
Well, gotta get ready for work. Good talking to you. Hope you have a great week of the 4th.

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

I was kinda tired and dragging yesterday, so after church, added some more concrete to the holes (I wasn't happy with what I had so bought some more), and instead of riding, just did a little groundwork and called it a day.
Well, hope your week gets off to a good start.

Hi. Just zipping by on the way to work. Didn't get home from church and the birthday lunch till 6:30, so I only had time for a short 20 min ride walking around, did a little sidepassing and a step of shoulder out again.
Hope you had a good weekend and your week gets off to a good start.

So good to hear from you! Glad things are going well, though busy, and you have been able to ride Big C some. Glad he still has a horse buddy or two, was worried she was gonna sell them all. So Olive is still there? I bet she's huge. How old is she now?
It has to a pain not to be able to access HC from your own computer.
We've been fine. Summer's off with a bang, strating with VBS, trying to get my above ground pool in shape to use, cutting grass, a little garden, and taking care of my sister in law, who's been sick for a couple of months. I ride when I can, some weeks more than others. The weather has been good, highs of 80s and more rain this year than last year.
Well, hope things go smoothly for you. Are you in school through the summer?

Thank you all for the support. Still trying to process the fact that my cousin has died. He's a big part of my childhood memories and is forever in my heart. No greater friends than HC friends. Sadie's good. She was so full of spit and vinegar the other night. She's forever in my heart, too. My car's ac is awesome. If my dash lights worked, I'd feel rich. Lol. Probably a short in the wiring. Love to all of you and a vote.

I've got so much going on, it's not easy to be on HC everyday. My cousin died Sunday morning. Still too much to process. Not going, because the service is in S.C and the burial in Georgia. I did send flowers to the funeral home, then called to make sure they got there. Been in touch with my aunt and brother. My car is in the shop. Should be ready Thursday. Hot weather is on it's way and that ac is gold. Love and votes. Prayers, too.

$600 plus whatever it cost to replace the control panel for my car's ac. Compressor's leaking. Rick won't agree to a new fence. We're going to have to patch what's left of the one we have. For now, Scruffy's chained during the day and inside at night. Leaving love to all and a vote.

Very busy work weekend. I had to pick Scruffy up from Animal control in Phoenix, today. He was somehow picked up by the police about 20 miles, or so, away. Too hot for him to walk that far. I borrowed Austin car, because the ac in my car isn't working. Hope all are well. Love and a vote.

So much going on. 3 family members have terminal cancer, my mom has alzheimer's, dementia and Parkinson's disease, and with other issues, I haven't felt much like being on HC or Facebook. I leave for Minnesota on the 21st of June. Got that week off approved at work. Now, I'm waiting to hear about the 5th of July through the 17th. I put in for those days to drive to Nevada to see my son and his family, then bring my grandsons home with me for a week's visit. I'm so excited about them moving back to the States and being closer to me. Already planning my first Christmas with them. So wonderful to have something so wonderful to look forward to. Leaving lots of love and a vote.

I think being up at night takes a toll. My work shifts are sometimes 8 hours long with no breaks. Doesn't bother me. I think sitting down for too long and allowing myself to be lazy, feels too good. Looking forward to retiring in 100 years. Lol. Love and a vote.

No horsey time. I'm tired on my days off. I'm taking several vitamin supplements, but after working, I'm lazy on my days off. Got chores to catch up on, too. I said I want to retire at 62 and live comfortable one week out of the month. Trips I have to take, so I'll keep working. My uncle in Minnesota has terminal cancer. Saving up for a flight to visit him. Will be taking trips to Las Vegas to visit my son and his family. Eric got orders for Nellis AFB. I'm soooo happy! I haven't seen my grandsons in 6 years. This Christmas will be my first one with them. God answered my prayers and is sending them close to me. Sadie's doing good. Just love her. Love and a vote.

101*, yesterday. Got to patch the doghouse and turn on Scruffy's ac. Not looking forward to the summer heat. Usually around 110* by the first week of June. Cool hugs and votes.

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.

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.

Windy, but beautiful weather. The flies are horrible. They're chewing the tips of Sissy's ears up. I'm keeping her in during the day, as much as possible. Wondering if vaseline would stop that. Surprised at how much alfalfa pellets swell when soaked. I'd given Sadie pellets without soaking them. Never, again! Still learning. Leaving lots of love and a vote.
