How We Met

I had a 20 yr old Tennessee walker that did not like to run, and.l she tripped a lot going around the barrels. So I found Darby and we made a trade. Before the owner before me he was a rescue.

Just got back from an awesome camping adventure with my Cimarron horse. We stayed at Keenes Horse Camp in Washington's Gifford Pinchot Nat'l Forest, near Mt. Adams. It's beautiful there, and Cimarron did really well for a pasture potato. He's usually sluggish and lazy when I ride him at home, but he was prancing and anxious to go this time. Me and the old guy took the lead in most of our rides, and he was obviously happy about it. I wish I could go camping all the time!

Come visit me, Cimarron *New Photos*.

We went for a ride last night, poor Miss Lilly got stung by some bee's, on the tongue, lip and leg, a friend said put some peppermint tea 4 bags of it in with her grain at feed time, it will act as antihstamine, she looked pretty good this morning at breakfast time. Suz and Lilly

Spangle's story continued:
A month and a half ago, I loped Spangle again. He didn’t buck! We ended on that good note. Also we have worked with him on loading into the trailer. He now will load easily. If he won’t go in, you just show him a crop and he will be in the trailer in no time.

The farrier was out yesterday to give the horses their trim.

We've had a lot of rain and flooding here in Arizona. We're okay here, but some towns, north of Phoenix, weren't so lucky. New River, Arizona, was hit so hard, pets and horses were washed away. I saw, on the news, that 2 of the horses drowned and women on horseback were searching for the other 2. I haven't heard if they were found, yet. So heartbreaking. Sadie's fine. We've had rain, hard Thursday morning, but no flooding at my house. Sadie's out of her corral, because it's slippery and mucky. To know Sadie, is to know she's happy. She was at the backdoor begging for carrots. Of course, she got some. Hope you're all doing well. Leaving love and a vote.

Here's a vote from Buddy! Yet again, sorry we haven't been on in about a week, it seems the only time that we have to get on is when I have my days off! I've added some new pictures of Buddy, and one of his tail. I love the colours in it, and I've been putting MTG in it lately to try and get it to grow since he has such a sucky tail (to put it nicely.)

I haven't ridden him in his normal saddle pad yet, but I'm going to do that tomorrow and see how he does. The barn owner has her last day of her kids summer camp tomorrow so hopefully I can manage to ride outside while all the kids are riding inside or are on lunch, just in case Buddy pulls some crazy stunt! If he his still a bit off I am going to try and take the saddle off and just ride him bareback. If that doesn'e help him then I will have to call Dr. Herbers when I get back from my vacation to get his teeth checked and floated. I know I need to get them done sooner rather than later as when I asked my aunty if they had ever been done she said they had not as they had always been good when she had checked them. And of course if having his teeth doesnt help then I will move on to try a chiropractor, as one of the other boarders at the barn plans on having one come out and said that if need be she will let them know there may be another horse that needs to be done. Hopefully it doesnt come to that!

I leave for my vacation on Sunday morning, but I should still be able to make it on to vote every few days at least! I'm bringing my laptop as I never really leave home for an extended period of time without it. I may be blogging later during that time tho. As much as I am excited to go, I am not at all ready to pack to go. I'm sure I'll forget something that I want to bring. As long as I remember to bring my saddle!

I hope everyone is doing well and the weather has cooled down and you can all enjoy some not so hot horsey time! I also hope the bugs are not as bad for you as they are for me currently! And here's hoping my ride goes well tomorrow!

-Buddy & Jasmine

Everet Shaw, who rode his share of great steer roping horses, told Hyde
that Blue was the best horse at Cheyenne that year. Hyde and Del both felt
that Blue started out of the box quicker and could catch cattle easier than
any horse they had ridden. The combination of Blue's athletic ability and
Del's training made him hard to beat. ~Thanks for voting~ **Copper**

Now it's my turn...
Went to get Cisco up to ride this AM (finally has dried out)and found he had cut the back of his RF pastern, midway between the heel and fetlock. Cleaned it up, salved and bandaged it, then called the vet. It looks red and inflamed to me, want to make sure it's OK and antibiotics aren't needed. Luckily, it's not deep and he's not lame, but no riding till it heals. She'll be out in the morning. From the look of it, to late for sutures.

Had a blast last night with Lilly took her through the arena circus last night, by hand, then played with her for awhile then, rode her around in the arena withnothiing on her, no halter or bridle or bareback pad, or saddle it was awesome, she listened to where I wanted to go for the most part , she even went over the tarp and stepped over the styrofoam aluminum reflectors, cantered around a bit and had her back up, it was really cool, of course I did wear my helmet, that is a must !! love Suz and Lilly

This program
produced the stallion Gooseberry, Crow Creek (Lory's top calf horse), and
many good mares. Hyde and Dede then bought the other half interest in Blue
Valentine from Del. Hyde felt like it was a great privilege to rope steers
on Blue. In 1970 Hyde roped at his last Cheyenne Frontier Days on Blue. ~Thanks for voting~ **Copper**

Hi Darby, here's a vote for ya. Finished up all the little details today around the farm. The went over and got Paige ready for her lesson, I didn't ride, my left hip is out! Oh yeah, lucky me! Did to much lifting hay yesterday! Without my back brace on! Stupid Me! Laurel and I gave her a bath, since it went up to 86 degrees today, she worked up a lather! Laurel even rode her today. Got home and turned the boys out while I hooked up the trailer and loaded my bedding, yes with my back brace on! Shaved Indy, just in case I show him in halter again. So it looks like we're ready to leave around 9 am and go and pick up Paige and her work gear and caravan it to the Fair Grounds. Catch y'all on FB and on HC on Monday night. Marion and the blondes.

♡ we really had a nice evening. Turned out the boys to graze and then haltered Rocket and ground worked him. I told Cliff he could do that with him but…he just doesn’t have it in him darn it. It started to rain right after I finished and it felt soooo good. We missed the rain from over the weekend so I thought we wouldn’t get any…I was wrong - Thank you for your votes here is a click on your horseshoe. Have a wonderful day ;)

Galloping by with a hot hot hot Tuesday morning vote! Hope all is well. Darby got a scrape on his left upper leg, so when he walks it presses against his cinch, looks like no saddle riding for me. Will try to ride bareback this week though. Been spraying med on it as much as i can. Hope it heals quick, Hope everyone had a great fun horsey weekend. Have a great Tuesday, *Click on ya horseshoe*

I lunged Spangle under tack yesterday. He was being a little grumpy, but was good. I then got on and walked and trotted him. He was really good:)

I rode Rose bareback last night at dusk. It was just a fun ride. We loped in each direction too:) It was fun.

Spangle's Story Continued:
Eventually, after working Spangle in the round pen for a couple months, I got on and rode him at a walk. The next time I rode we trotted. We have been working on walking and trotting under saddle for a while. Two months ago we tried loping. He bucked. I made him gallop once I was safely on the ground. Got back on and walked and trotted him. I also lunged him at a lope.

I'M GOING CRAZY HERE....
Thanks guys for the suggestions, however, I'm in Canada and Smart Pac can not ship here. I will see what Cookie recommends. I don't think it is restless leg syndrome as Cindy suggested, he only does this at night when in his stall. He has a Jolly Ball, he has a huge stall, he has Sterly visible over the half door, he is outside ALL day long, I mean from 6:30 AM to 5 or 6 PM, he has the barn open during the day if he wants in out of the sun or rain. I have given this a lot of thought and I really think he started this when he was not being ridden last summer, now I have a NASTY habit to try to break. I'm just so angry that I did not nip it in the bud last summer, grrrr. Please Charlie stop this. We are going to cover all the exposed wood and concrete in that corner, at least if he still kicks the concussion should be less. Thanks for listening to all this, Love you all, we left a vote, Donna Lee

Hyde inherited from his father the satifaction of riding a good horse he knew he had raised. In the fall of 1956, Ken Gunter gave Del Haverty the pick of the Red Man colts. Del picked a blue roan stallion named Blue Valentine. Del trained Blue to rope calves, tie-down team rope, and haze dogging steers. ~Thanks for voting~ **Copper**
