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..

Hi, how have you been? Did I see that you got a job for the summer? Congrats! But I bet that messes up your time to go see Cimarron. A job just gets in the way of life, lol. How is he doing? How are his feet?
We've been fine. Between rain and work, I hadn't been on Allie in over a week, but was finally able to work with her yesterday and she did well. I was half way through when I remembered that I wasn't going to ride the first day, lol. We're still just walking and practicing steering and stops, so not a lot of progress, but she is staying calmer and steering maybe a shade better. Today looks to be real busy again, but I need to ride her again today for sure.
Well, hope all's well and your week is going well. Take care.

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

My goodness. I need to make it on HC more often. Scruffy's doing better. I took him out, last night, to potty. Took the cone off and was surprised to see how much better he did without it. He walked some and wagged his tail. If I would live by his example, find time to wag my tail during rough spells, I'd be a better person. Animals are inspirational. Leaving lots of love and a vote. <3

No, baby yet, but by the piles of "horse apple" in the corner, I would say she is cleaning out her system.
Have to put together all the things to have ready for tomorrow, not alot but need halters, ropes, clean towels for the colt's eyes, and I told Mistit to wait until the vet is here to have her baby.
Suppose to rain, so need a area inside ready too.

Our dog, Scruffy, was attacked, late Sunday night, by one of the neighbors' dog. Possibly a pit mix. Scruffy got chewed up pretty bad. He's wearing the 'lampshade', has staples and is sedated. Can't get him to eat, drink or take his medication. The vet said he's not walking because of, either the surgery or the sedative shot they gave him. He ate some grilled chicken before we left for the vet. Hoping his appetite is back Tuesday. He's got a long way to go to heal. He's so sociable. He goes over to the egg ranch and shares the employees' lunches. He probably likes to hang out with the prisoners that work there, too. He gets out by climbing the fence, literally. or jumping it. I can't handle chaining him. Too heartbreaking. For now, he's in the house, and hopefully, after he heals, too. Been afraid he'd get ran over. The dog has disappeared. I haven't seen him since he attacked Scruffy. So aggressive. I'm taking care of the bill. He was out which makes it my responsibility. Don't think the neighbor has any money, anyway. His single wide is set up in a way that breaks permit laws, including being a single wide. Going to hush and leave lots of love and a vote.

♡ We burned the tree pile some on Friday, it was a little to damp to get going good, but was enough to feel we did something that afternoon LOL Sat. & Sun. we really made some good progress for sure. We still have a little bit of wood panels to burn that are no good and some more metal to take off the top part of run in that we won't be able to use. It made everything look more organized. So now we are trying to figure out how we want to re-build it. For now we will reuse the materials we saved to make them something to get under when it rains. The barn to hold hay is what were thinking about and how we want to rebuild it with the stalls. That's about it for me. I did ride Whiskey bareback for just a few minutes Friday evening. It was so nice to be on my horse's back! Have a wonderful week ok!

My sister who lives nearly 3 hours away, called last night and said she was coming up for the 4-H swap animal meet about 20 miles from me. she does try to support the 4-H swaps, and since this is their 1st, and she was helping the leader, sort of felt she had to come. I took all my chicks there and made over 100 dollars, hopefully it will be enough with what I am been saving to get Clippers gelded. Besides had a good time.

Austin and I had a wonderful time, in Tucson, visiting with (Rick's) family and enjoyed his niece's graduation. Rick has issues, but his family is sweet and loving. Planning to go back down, after the summer heat goes away, and going to Tombstone with them. So looking forward to it. Hope you're all doing well. Love and a vote.

How have things been? Any ride time? Anything interesting going on?
I finally had a good ride on Allie yesterday. Things I did differently were to drop the halter further down her nose, attach the reins more to the sides of the halter rather the tie loop under her chin, and circle the obstacles over and over in the same direction before changing and going the other way, rather than weaving in and out in alternating directions. But she's quirky enough that I think it was the desperate prayers before I got on that made the biggest difference. Anyway, she steered a little better and stayed more quiet and confident, as did i. Big yay! It's raining this morning , so not sure I'll be able to ride today.
Well, hope you had a good weekend and the new week is off to a good start. Take care.

Between getting the goat, a wether, who must think I am his Mom, all he says is MaMaMama....smile emoticon And the guinea pig, named Raisin. and I do not have his pen/cage ready yet. Guinea hens that do not want to get along with each other, and two turtles that need to go outside, but with our temps still in the 20's in the morning, I do not want to take the chance on them getting too cold. All 22 of my tomato plants froze, even with being covered. And the little ponies (3) young ones ran right threw the electric fence this morning, I think they are afraid of the goat, who is still in the shed. I guess, everything sounds normal here.......wink emoticon

I guess HC is having problems again today but I will try to post and vote for as many as I can. I worked a 12 hour shift yesterday so I only had evening feeding time with the boys. I gave them love and went on in and ate and went to bed! they are calling for rain all week :( I hate that for my boys not having shelter but what can I say. I guess it is meant to be to have a new barn and improved at that so I'm trying to find the positive out of all this mess ♡ Wishing you all a very blessed Sunday with lots of horse time ✞

hope you and the herd are doing well. any rides lately? how are Cimarron's hooves doing?
we had a nice thunderstorm come over yesterday evening and water the grass for us. all the plants and birds look happy this morning. i rode BJ bareback yesterday and enjoyed that. he's gotten SO slow, i guess between his heaves and the residual of the EPM. it makes for a good bareback ride though. then i sat on Allie bareback for a few minutes to flex her head. she is moving sounder so maybe i will try riding her today. she has turned into such a teenager, flirting with the boy, only wanting to hang out with her friends, not wanting to do any work around the house. my daughter suggested that Allie has a boyfriend named "snake" who she'll run away with as soon as he gets out of prison, lol. i can so see her doing that!
well, hope you have a great friday 13th. take care.

Sadie was a good girl, Thursday. She did give the farrier some attitude. He rubbed her neck and said she's a spoiled brat. She is. She took her shot without a problem and didn't fight the deworming. She's wearing her new fly mask, too. She and Austin played chase. She had that tail curled. Lol. So funny. Have a great weekend. I have extra hours this weekend, too. Will be on to vote, as much as possible. Love and a vote.

Finally we have heat and hot water. Mike forgot to turn up the thermostat to tell the stove to heat the house. :).
Since it rain again last night, we will do some running this morning. Have to finish putting in some potatoes in the garden and check to see if anything "besides" weeds are growing.

Still working on the outdoor stove, it is working, "but" now the water is not coming around threw out the house. We have hot water heat, and someplace in a pipe there must be a airlock. Here I thought our house would be warm tonight, but maybe not. Weather is miserable outside. Still rainy and cold. Moved one batch of chicks to the calf hutch, moved the bigger ones to the little room in the chicken coop, so soon they will be going outside. Making room in the back of the shed so ponies can have a pen on that side, has large siding door, and then their pen Mistic will get because it has a large pen outside under the lento where when she foals, I can put them to keep them safe. May 23 is due date.

Well, those 2 nice days we had, must have been our summer. Since last week, our morning temps are in the 30's, now they are talking "winter mix" for this week, that means snow/rain. Our outdoor stove, is being worked on, so no heat or hot water since last Thursday. Grass is growing, and steers (4 of them) finally got to go out on a small pasture. Whisper and the little ones have been going out a bit everyday, but mostly weeds and not a good pasture. We want them to eat it down, then spray all the weeds and disk a bit, and reseed.

A "late" Happy Mother's Day to you, even if you are only the mother of 4 legged ones.
Busy weekend....hatched out 42 out of 48 eggs, for me that is great. Sold 8 guinea hens on Saturday and 15 chicks, but out poor outdoor stove is taking all that money to fit it. Now the best new, Pickles finally progress to a point that he can have his halter OFF. Does not run away, and no long afraid of hand movements....sometimes, he moves his head, but not his feet. Been following me around, like I am his best friend. Negative side of no halter, is....I can not tell Pickles and Clippers apart(from just their heads), without looking at their feet. :)

Hi Cimarron, here's a vote for ya. Happy Mother's Day to all, whether it be 2 legged or the best kind 4 legged! Well it was raining at am feeding, cleared out by 9 am with winds like OMG, but the sun came out! Didn't remember what that orange thing in the sky was! LOL! So it was a lot of fun trying to lunge them, even in the indoor. Large doors were snugged as tight as I could get them and they were still making noise. So Paige got a few good crow hops and bucks in, but she's doing well. Indy I kept on the lunge line and even he wasn't happy about the winds! And when Indy acts up, you know it's bad! Bullseye went out this afternoon in the baby pasture, the others stayed in with hay for late lunch. Didn't need either of them running and slipping on the wet grass and muddy pastures. Did manage to mow the entire lawn! YAY! Now to start working on mowing pastures and the weeds in places are 10 inches high! In two weeks, they grow rather well! Marion and the blondes.

Glad he mostly puts up with Olive, she needs a role model. WhooHoo! Have water out to the pastures! Only time I have to hand carry water is out to the round pen, and that's not far. Been doing some spring cleaning in the barn. Cisco's up for the night, hoping the rain holds off till after the farrier gets out here, but doesn't look like it.

I haven't tried the bosel on the QHs, it's actually one I bought for my first horse years ago. She was only ever ridden in a mechanical hackamore, and I switched her over. It probably didn't fit her either, but I didn't know any better back then. I'm like you, I've just used the rope halters when I want to go bitless. Gracie really rides better in the halter too, and BJ also does pretty good in it.
Yeah, I think I'm going to look into the regu-mate. If it doesn't make any difference, I'll stop it.
Saw that your weather has been muggy and hot. That's no fun either. Are the bugs having a hay-day? Hope you get some horse time in and have a good sunday. Take care.

Hi Cimarron, here's a vote for ya. Well, misty this morning, then it stopped and was just overcast. Couldn't mow at all, grass stayed wet all day. But at least I got my walk in up the block and back. Got Paige saddled and lunged again, I can't wait to get on her. Free lunged Indy, he's too funny! And Bullseye was full of himself and running like a nut in the indoor! So at least they all got a good run in. Plus I took Honey down there too, she can book! Very fast, my last two were pleasure lopers for labs, this girl is a race horse, I mean dog! LOL! Well possible sunshine tomorrow, we'll wait and see about that! Marion and the blondes.

glad Olive is hooking up with Cimarron, she needs somebody to pal around with. he's not an enthusiastic babysitter though? BJ and Allie poke and nip at each other all the time, and he lets her get away with a lot more than the mares do. she's been acting really weird lately, doing stuff she never does, so im really starting to wonder if it's not her hormones- this is her first spring as an "adult"- sort of. im going to look into regu-mate or something similar, just see if that makes a difference. or it might just be that she's feeling her oats on the spring grass and looking for silly ways to burn it off.
well, hope you're having a great weekend. will you watch the Kentucky Derby?

Hubby was gone yesterday, drove with a friend to the VA in Minneapolis, so I never had even 1 dirty dish to wash until he got home. Got so much work done. Emptied, (again 3rd time) rain water out of the sunk in bath tub, that is used for the summer fish pond, used water to give to all the newly planted trees, so some of the water carrying was a bit of a hike. After filling the horse tanks, pulled the hose over to the fish pond and filled it, of course first had to clean it, because of all the leaves and sticks that fall in. Went and caught all 7 little gold fish, by hand, and put them in. I try to make it as natural as possible. With rocks and later plants....the rocks are so "if" some little animal falls in, at least it can climb out on the rocks. Put turtles back in the pen, and added more rocks so it is easier for them to crawl out, that plastic does not give them any traction. Dragged the hose over and made muddle puddles for the pigs, then watered all the tomatoes plants, all 22 of them. Still have more to put out, but they are still to small. I carry them outside to set in the sun, and then back in for the night. Baby chicks got to go out in the sunshine in the outdoor pen, but sure were hard to round up to go back inside at 6, All the tomatoe plants, have to be uncovered in the morning, then recovered when it started getting hot, yep, it really got hot yesterday, up to 83 at one time. We go from 30 to 89+ in one day. Winter jacket to T-shirt. Cleaned out white guinea pen, brushed ponies, worked on picking up Pickles feet....he was very naughty when farrier was here...picked up his feet and his whole bod went with. But Clippers did the same thing, and his feet were picked up hundreds of time. Moved saddles to the shop so I could clean them later, took the huge plastic that covered them, out into the ponies pen, and used feed tanks and rocks,to hold down corners and then put its of feed on the plastic so the ponies could learn to walk on the plastic. Sure enough, girls are braver than boys. Paisley, and Mistic just walked right out, Pickles and Clippers had to check it out somewhat, before they went for treats. I brought the two huge balls out for them to play with, they like to follow them as they roll. Pickles and Paisley had them in their pen all winter. Later when it was dark, I went to lock chickens in, and all 3 of the younger ponies were laying down, so I sat between them, and rubbed them. Pickles just laid out flat and I got to rub his tummy, first time he did that. Usually he wants to get up, but tonight he felt comfortable just laying there. Did I clean house, well I did wash one load of clothes and hung them outside. That counts, somewhat, for housework, right!!
