Hooves crossed for Whiskey to be ~ May HOTM ♡
<)___~ Whiskey will return to the Doc on May 20th for his next set of x-ray’s. I feel he will be just fine, last dose of bute yesterday and I think in 2 days will tell a lot of how he is but I can’t know for sure until the next visit. I want to thank you all for all the amazing support throughout the month of April. I hope you enjoyed his story and I surely hope I can tell you many more story’s in the future of he & I riding together…God bless you all…..I honestly did not realize how difficult and demanding running for HOTM could be until now! Not having a computer at home really made this challenging for me, so again I cannot say thanks enough, sending love to you & your herds!!!!!!!
Here is our finial tidbit on the Fabulous Rocky Mountain Horse Breed! In the early 1960s, Sam Tuttle managed the trail riding concession at the Natural Bridge State Park in Powell County, Kentucky. He had as many as fifty horses there, including TOBE. This stallion was often seen tied to the hitching post alongside all the mares. He became quite well known in the ten or so years he was ridden there. Besides breeding, TOBE was used as a trail horse. He carried Sam, and sometimes the trail guides who worked for Sam, with sure-footed ease over mountainous terrain for many years. Although Sam would allow other people to ride TOBE occasionally, it was always a ride closely supervised. He loved to show off his beloved stallion, but also kept a close eye on him. Everyone who rode TOBE enjoyed his gentle temperament and comfortable gait. It amazed people to think the well-mannered horse they were riding was indeed a breeding stallion.
TOBE was used for breeding until July of his thirty-fourth year, and he passed on his gait, disposition, and other great qualities to his offspring. It has been said that TOBE's progeny followed in his "perfectly-timed" footsteps. TOBE sired many fine horses before his death at the ripe old age of thirty-seven. One outstanding trait passed on was longevity, as many of his offspring were still breeding into their late twenties and early thirties.
Thank you for your support we appreciate it! Hoping to see him as the top horse tomorrow!!!!!

The more we rode the better Whiskey got at reining. The more miles and trails the easier it got on me and him. I discovered Whiskey loves the water. The picture today was taken 8/2012. We can get in a few minutes but I have to move him out or he will try to lie down, but I can take him right back in and then he settles to stand, doesn’t swim yet with me. We are still working toward that. We haven’t camped out in nearly 2 years, and that is when I can try to swim with the horses. It’s too hard to try swimming when I day ride because of the drive home (driving wet is no fun) -ha ha =) Deacon is my true water baby-he will actually swim with me and never try to lie down. I have also found that Whiskey hates for any type bug to fly in his face-so needless to say while we ride in the open if there are grass hoppers or butter flies, regular fly’s he tosses his head slightly. It doesn’t bother me now but it used to. Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

whiskey is sending hugs & love
Monday we left off about Whiskey’s color and me with 5 hundred questions for Karla! Here we go…That poor girl had never met me before and I could not shut up :) I then walked over and looked Whiskey right in the eye and he looked back into mine and my heart sunk. His beauty was striking and the color was outstanding. He had a smart, sharpness about him-I’m sure he was thinking “what in the world is she doing”. The ride finally got underway; usually everyone has me ride out front and calls me the trail boss! Deacon is a faster walking horse but can ride in the middle or behind after the first hour or so. Well, here comes Rio & Whiskey with their smooth selves!!! They just gaited their smooth self’s right past me & Deacy. I watched Whiskey and noticed he didn’t quite move the same as Rio but still a difference from a QH. 2 hours into the ride we decided to rest a few minutes in a place we call “Carol’s lounge”. We have names for all our spots we ride to rest or to take a break out there because it’s so big. Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

Whiskey would love your support for his HOTM run
In 2008 the decision was made after a talk with our boy’s and Cliff. It was time for me to get back on my horse journey. I purchased Deacon in March 23, 2008 and then bought Whiskey in May 2010. When I run Deacon I will tell more about the 1st 2 years back on my journey. Now that you have some back ground on me and my journey I will start Whiskey’s story with me. As many of you know I trail ride and use to camp with the horses all the time, now we just day ride. Hoping this spring sometime to camp again-fingers crossed =) It has been 2 years sense we have camped out with them. We would camp at Mccown or Plowman Valley at Lake Whitney Texas or at Reynolds Creek Lake Waco, Texas. During those times I have met a lot of people and their different type of horses. On one Oct. weekend we had some friends of Bill’s that was coming that I had never met. I asked Bill as we all were getting our horses ready for our ride that day, what type horses did these friends have? He said Rocky Mountain horses…I said hummmm, never heard of that breed. The thoughts in my head about this breed had me so curious. Now tomorrow we are into his story fully….hang in there! Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

I will explain how I came about choosing my Whiskey and Deacon so it takes us Wwway back~~~~~ lol ~ I got out of the Navy in 1986. I knew I wanted to get a horse at the time and I wanted to try barrel racing. I had a friend in California (last place I was stationed) that was running the circuit barrel racing and a boyfriend riding bulls so I guess that is what made me want to try barrels. I really just wanted a horse to care for and ride because I loved them so much. I moved back to Texas and started my search. I met a lady where I started working that raised quarter horses and she had a beautiful dark bay mare that I started riding, her name was Fanny. She was very gentle and easy to handle. My sister said I could put a fence up on her property and use their garage to convert into a stall and storage area. So I went to work with a few friends and converted this place and added one stall and a tack area. It took a few months to get everything ready so the lady let me make payments. Once she was paid off, and the property was ready I brought her home with me. Things just didn’t work out for Fanny & me. I’m sure you all can relate to the fact that some horses and humans are not a match. That is how it was with her, just didn’t feel right. The hunt was on and a new year began 1987 ~ Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

The babies (Finn and Rowdy) at DreamCatchers have an adoption pending!! They will be going together. Tonka tripped and fell on his head while riding today... Farrier fixed his hooves (heal and toe too long). Took Digit for a walk and he did good until pasture horses came running to the fence, then he got all stud crazy and pranced around. Jack had the day off!! Remember to vote every day for DreamCatchers in the shelter challenge. www.shelterchanllenge.com

We lost one of our old farts today, Mustang Sally. She was wild and we could never get near her so when she colicked, there was nothing we could do to help her. She was calm and quiet when she crossed Rainbow Bridge.
The Natural Healthy Horse is going to do a story on our Passion. Will keep you posted on that one.

Good Morning, I slept in until 4:30, Charlie and Sterly are having their warm buckets. We are leaving votes and great thanks for the overwhelming support, special thanks to the Dogs from DC, you guys are amazing. Today's story is about Mom's and best friends. Remember at the time I found Mackie the horses were not at home. I rented a barn and 5 acres of pasture a mile and half down the road, plus I still had the expense of Sterly and Jackie, both retired. Even tho Mackie was looking like a perfect choice there was one itsy, bitsy problem, $$$$. Our rule (me and David) my horses, my money. My Mom said, how much, I said about half, she wrote me a cheque and said "David doesn't need to know about this, you are happier when you have a horse, I want to do this", I said" I'll pay you back" she said "you bet you will" Love you Mom. Next I arranged for the trailering, Mackie was about 2 1/2 hours NW of me and Bray was going about an hour SE of me. Just one more itsy, bitsy problem, I had to work the day it was scheduled. Step up Sonya, she said she would be at the barn, meet the trailer, unload Mackie, load Bray and stay with him until I got home. Love you Sonya. So the night before, I got Bray all buffed up, told him he was going on a new adventure and that I would never forget him, I said my goodbyes. To be continued, Love Donna Lee and Mackie

We left a thank you vote, I have been getting up at 2:30 in the morning to get my blog written and do some votes, I am so happy to tell Mackie's story. Interesting fact the Magnificent Albatross, the greatest Sandardbred of all time, was Sterly's grandsire, he was also Mackie's grandsire. Mackie came from a pretty good racing background here is a little info on his Sire. Cam Luck
Camluck was an awesome member of Canadian trainer Robert McIntosh’s “Dream Team”of pacers, which included champions Artsplace and Staying Together. His fame, however, came not only from his accomplishments as a racehorse, which saw him win over $1 million and 26 races, but as one of the most prolific stallions to ever stand at stud in Canada. His first nine crops old enough to race had accumulated more than $100 million and include 322 offspring with records of 1:55 or faster and ten millionaires. Have a great day, thanks for supporting us, Love Donna Lee & Mackie

Good afternoon, we so much appreciate the support, thanks, we left a vote,
After we got home I bet I watched that video a 100 times, I called Kathy and told her I wanted him. Mackie came from a racing from in Michigan, Kathy got him straight from the track, I was very grateful because she did tons of ground work with him. His manners were impeccable. Kathy was very sad to lose him, however she had been in a very bad accident and as a result had lost the use of her hands, she lost her drivers licence and had to let her horses go. I felt very certain that she was an honest person and Mackie was exactly what she said he was. At about the same time I had found what I thought was a perfect match for Bray. She was a young intermediate rider BUT, Bray would be in a very large show barn, show would have tons of support around her. It would be a good atmosphere for my "MR FULL OF HIMSELF" Thanks for helping Mackie with your votes and visits, we appreciate it and I am enjoying telling his story, Love Donna Lee

Here is a Cold, Cold Canadian vote, I checked out a few more horses, but nothing really turned my crank. I heard about one that sounded good, but she was a couple of hours away, so I found two more in that area to look at and Sonya and I made a day of it. I went to the first one which had originally sounded sooooo good, when we arrived she was NOTHING like they had represented, she was the prettiest horse I had ever seen, but zero training at 6. He said take her home if you don't love her bring her back. We left. The next one was a possibility, Sonya liked him more than me. He was a bit too much up, I rode him but felt like I was fighting him, really strong in the bridle, he was alright, but not great. By now I'm tired and frustrated and I didn't want to bother with the third horse. But Sonya said we came all this way let's go. So we did, we got lost, two phone calls later we found the place. I'm tired, a little bit cranky and I'm already sure I won't like this horse. His owner was the nicest lady, so very quiet and easy to talk to. When we walked into her barn Mackie was in x-ties. He was so relaxed, so calm and so gentle looking. I instantly loved his looks, we took a bit of time to chat and get acquainted. His Mom lounged him, and then I rode him. Sonya had brought the camera so we videoed him, we thanked her and I said I would go home and talk it over, I'd call her in a couple of days.
I'm pretty sure I talked about him the whole way home, guess what I said when I called her the next day???? to be continued. Thanks to everyone that has supported us, we are so happy, Love Donna Lee & Mackie

Good Morning, we left a vote, have I mentioned that I am stubborn..well, even after the kick in the head I did not give up on Bray, but what happened was, I became afraid of him, I found I was making excuses to not ride, like, oh it is too wet, or too windy or I'm too tired etc...on days that I did ride, I was just thankful to get off in one piece. This horse had my number and we were not communicating at ALL. After a lot of soul searching I decided that I really LOVED this horse, I just didn't LIKE him very much, I know you guys get that, talk soon, please leave a vote for my Angel Sassy Mac, more on him to come soon, Love Donna Lee
