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.

Hope Darby went over the jump for you. Not much horsey time today except for feeding and turnout, went into Ft. Worth and had lunch with a friend. She wanted to know how in the world I give Nugget her pill (she's never had much luck pilling a horse), told her I hollow out half a baby carrot, stuck the pill inside, stuffed the guts back in, and she has no idea she's getting a pill

Hi Darby, thanks so much for all the support :) keeping my fingers crossed. I hope the groundwork went well today. They just installed a new turnout arena in the field I ride in closer to the main entrance which will be super nice on hot days when I don't feel like walking Koot all the way to the other turn out lol. Voted. XOXO Danya and Koot

♡ nothing new, still hot. Yes they say it is the mildest summer in years and I’m glad but August and September has not spared us from our typical heat of the triple digits so I’m very tired of the heat and I am looking forward to some cooler weather so I can get back to my riding plans. Thank you for your votes here is a click on your horseshoe. Have a wonderful day ;)

The weekend was nice, got a little riding in. I've just started training Allie how to side pass down the fence also. It needs a lot of practice, but she's getting the general idea. Moving sideways seems to be a novel idea for her.
Hope you have a good Tue. Take care.

Hey Darby, I'm glad to hear that your weather cooled down some. Hope the lunging goes well tomorrow :) I got Koot out for a play day on Saturday morning and it was super hot! Already 80 by 11am and then took him out for a trail ride this evening and gave him a good grooming. He was a happy boy. Voted. XOXO Danya and Koot

ok, so i got another little project in the works!!! back in January when me and my friend bought the ponies from this guy i noticed this grulla filly and tried to talk my friend into getting her to break. but she wanted to get the ponies. well i have gone back this week and am working out a deal with the owner so i can break the filly at his place for him and then maybe show her next year and then sell her and we split the profits!
So excited! i will get pics of her and post them!

Hi Darby, here's a vote for ya. Well once again we were spared the storms and rains. So I didn't ride however, Paige's boeing 747 fly bit in the middle of her back is a huge lump now! When I killed that thing on her, I had a handful of blood on me and her back. She swells up so easy! And since it's right where I would be sitting in the saddle, thought it best not to ride! LOL! Went to the BBQ and had some good food with good friends, left when the kids were getting cranky! That's my cue to say, well gotta go home and let the horses out for pasture time! So that's what I did. This time though they got their fly sheets on them. No more big fly bites please! Marion and the blondes.

Good luck and let us know how it goes. Light ground work for Cisco and Nugget this AM, a bit cooler, not as humid and a very nice breeze. Saw Meg trotting yesterday afternoon and this AM, she seems fine. Have almost finished getting my daily 2 loads of poop out. Didn't get the ball out since it was so windy, don't want it really taking off and horses going everywhere. So looking forward to cooler weather, on the news this AM they said it was the mildest summer here in 7 years, only 14 days of triple digits. Cheryl & Cisco

is it winter yet???
The thing with Sterly's breathing is due in part to scar tissue in her lungs from a respiratory virus years ago, that ended her racing career. Lungs don't regenerate. Over the years it has gotten a bit worse, at times like season change and high humidity and high UV. She is for sure a Canadian horse she loves her winter, bring on the cold. She looks like a grizzly bear and she can breath, does it get any better... Ventipulimin is a bronchodilator, it opens up the airways, it is used for horses that have COPD or heaves or even asthma, keep in mind that Sterly is not a complainer, so we have to watch her closely, what you will see is, flared nostrils and short quick shallow breaths, get her in where it is cool with the big fan on her and she settled back to normal within 10 minutes. I only use the meds if she can't settle on her own. I'm sure the Cushings does not help matters, 'cause she has all that extra hair...I trimmed her this summer, but this year it just grew back pretty much as soon as it was gone, I have to prepare, everyday I still have her is a blessing, Left a vote, Love Donna Lee

This weekend my sister and I went on a camping trip with our church youth group. The first night it rained all night and me and most of my stuff got wet. Saturday and today it was dry though and quite nice. It was a fun trip.
My job has been going well, I am pretty much used to the routine now. At first it was just Mon, Wed, Fri & Sat but after a few days they asked if I could come everyday except for Sunday. I get there at 5:00 in the morning and we are usually done with chores somewhere between 9:00 and 10:30-it depends on if I have to help with some extra stuff like bedding the calves or helping to load a cow etc. I try to keep up with riding and working with the horses as best I can. It is definitely going to be harder when school starts on Tuesday. I will get on HC when I can.
I am looking forward to seeing who our new HOTM will be! Good luck Spangle and Copper!!

Cisco got a bath today, will be ready for work tomorrow. Inflated the Equi-Spirit ball, Cisco pretty much went right up to it, Nugget ignored it, and Meg had a fit when she started to walk up to it and the wind caught it and it moved. Lame again on the hind leg at first but moving better this afternoon. Used the weight tape, Meg and Cisco have lost a little, Nugget has gained.

Well, let's see, Charlie is kicking much less, and with all the padding up, I feel better about less chance of injury. From his behavior under saddle I have to say he has NO UNSOUNDNESS, all is well. Sterly is plugging along she never complains, we keep a close eye this time of year, if she is laboring in her breathing we put her in with her big fan on, she usually settles within 10 minutes. If it is real bad I can give her a bit of Ventipulimin, but they can get dependent on it, so I only use it when necessary. We had a great ride yesterday before it got too hot, today is forecast for showers, sounds like vacuuming and laundry, ugh..we voted, Love Donna Lee

Love that picture....
Good Morning, I had lots of OT this week, my hands are killing me...I'm still playing catch up from last winter when Trevor was with us, I'm not complaining but, we heat with propane and it was the coldest winter in 22 years, plus propane prices went up 40% plus Trev was cold and so we kept the house warm for him, as a result we were $1206 over budget on heat. It has to be paid by September 1, so the new budget can start, do I need OT?? Yes I do. Charlie and Sterly are good, we will have a nice ride today, this is a long weekend, yippee. we voted, Love Donna Lee

HI, left a vote. Picked up the last of my things at the old barn today, and said my goodbyes. It was bittersweet. Amber and I accomplished some "firsts" there that I will never forget.

The new barn is great. The arena is one of those coverall ones. Love the natural light, but man, it is 15 degrees hotter in there than it is outside. Great for winter, but not the summer! LOL! I have to get up early and get out there to ride, or I just wilt with the heat and humidity. It is like a greenhouse, or even a sauna.

Farrier was out today. The epoxy fell out a couple of days ago, and she was very pleased with the results. She got a trim today, then in 4 weeks, she will be back out, if they are still good, just another trim, and wait for the rain to do another epoxy treatment.

Off to bed, early to rise, so I can get a ride in!

Slightly cooler this AM. Worked Nugget and Cisco, I think Meg is getting jealous, she kept butting in. Noticed 6 hummingbirds last evening, so put out an extra feeder, this morning there at least 8. Saved a young mockingbird (I hope) from the jaws of death, one of my cats had caught it and I managed to grab her and pry her mouth open. Cat NOT happy, bird flew off a few minutes later. Hope it is OK. Then (UGH) went grocery shopping. Cheryl & Cisco
