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.

finally back to the computer to Blog, Lilly is doing fantastic, I have all my fall maintenance for her lined up , a trim then Dr. Jeff comes for her fall shots and wellness check, Have been riding or walking every night this week, to keep me focused on the important stuff like love laughter and me time, all this week I have been involved in transitioning my job out, which is really weird thing to do, ( work your way out of a job )not sure what my last day is but I think sometime in Oct, early I hope, I know longer will be doing what I do as of Oct. 2 I doubt my company would want to hang on to me to do nothing for very long after that. I actually can't wait now to get out of corporate America, it has been a good job but I have resolved now that a new, glorious adventureis about to begin. !! Love Suz and Lilly

Here's a vote from Buddy! Well, it's been quite a long time since Buddy & I have been on to blog and vote. A lot has happened since we were on last and I will try to recall it all.

Last time I was on was right before I went for my vacation up to the ranch. I had a really good time up there and lots of fun. I got to see friends that I hadn't seen since last year and go on quite a few rides. I stuck to riding two horses that I always used to ride before I was able to ride Buddy. Gypsy, and Keira. Gypsy is Keira's mother and also is the mother of Buddy's first colt Vanner. The most memorable part of my trip is shortly after we got there we were talking about doing the lake ride. Normally we do the lake ride in two days. Ride up to the lake, camp overnight and ride back to the ranch the next day. Well, this year we didn't have time to do that so we did the ride all in one day. It's 31 miles up to the lake from the ranch. I can't remember if that includes back to the ranch or not. Either way, it was a long ride, 11 hours! We would have been able to do it in about 9 or so but certain people that opted to come on the ride were having issues and sort of being "poor sports" to put it nicely. Anyways, after we got back from that ride we went into Armstrong from the rodeo. I don't know anyone who can say they did an 11 hour ride before they came to the rodeo!

I got back home from my vacation on the 7th of September and have been quite busy since. I've been working, and cleaning the house, and taking care of both of the dogs, and of course Rob had decided he needed a new fish tank so now I have 2 tanks to feed. We also have been looking at moving out of the house at the barn, and getting our own place, and I think we have found one! Last night we went to look at an amazingly huge 5 bedroom house, and oddly enough it was the cheapest rental we found. I believe we are going to meet with the couple today and get everything "formal" signed and what not. The place thankfully isn't too far away from the barn, about 20 minutes so it will still be easy enough for me to get to work. That being said, I am looking for a Unit Clerk job in the hospitals here. I love working at the barn, but the dramatics that go on around here are starting to get at me and I feel like I need to find myself a job that actually puts my education to work.

Buddy has been good, he got a new stall sign! Morgan made it for me before she left for Australia. I haven't ridden him much at all sadly. I hopped on him last night after walking him around for about 45 minutes with the fluffly saddle pad he likes, but he is still hesitant to move forwards. He tenses up and just feels like he's ready to pop me off. I'm hoping to try and ride him bareback today, and without a bridle to see if it's the bit hurting his teeth. I know I have to get his teeth checked/done I just cannot afford it at the moment.

I hope everyone has been good, and has been getting a lot of horsey time in.

Come visit me, Buddy.

The Mikmar bit is really great. He has never had a roller in his mouth, so it really surprised him and therefore he played with it a lot the first day! He held his head higher than desired and was confused on the four points of pressure this bit gives (mouth, nose, chin, poll), but yesterday he fully accepted it, put his head into that beautiful arched position of his, and did everything perfect I asked of him! Maybe the bit?, or maybe he was just being a good boy! Time will tell lol! The second bit just arrived so I haven't tried it, but it will go on the English bridle.
My husband thinks his sour behaviour lately is due to pain somewhere, or a trust issue between us after the trailer incident. I'll have him checked out tomorrow, but I haven't found any heat or tender spots on him.
Love, carrots, and votes to all!

Hey Darby, ya I wrote down the votes I started with on Sept 1st and I have about 280 votes so far, but not sure how good that is? I took Koot out for a ride last night. We did some figure 8s around barrels, starting with wide circles and then working in smaller and smaller and Koot did great. After that, we went on a short trail ride home. Voted. XOXO Danya and Koot

Finally having a beautiful day. Temps in mid-nineties, but very dry and a nice breeze so it's pleasant out. Worked with Nugget, then Cisco. Whatever his problem was yesterday, it was gone today. Finished clipping his bridle path (I only got in one swipe yesterday), had a nice ride, then noticed he dropped during after-ride grooming, so got his sheath cleaned.

Had a lovely weekend with Lilly, lots of riding time, lots of beautiful scenery passed beneath her feet, then after our ride I played with her in the areana , she ran, bucked and snorted and got a really good roll in, weather is cooling down here in OR after what we hope was our last really hot weekend may even get some rain this week , which will help our many wildfires, if I don't get on HC the rest of the week it is because I am doing more transition stuff with the New property owner of the building I take care of and my plate will be full so with that said God Bless and have a beautiful week with your horess love Suzie and Lilly

Thanks, I had a great horsey day. Fed and brushed Allie this morning before church, then trimmed Gracie's feet and went for a ride in the field next door and worked her in the riding ring when we got home. Gotta keep her honest about going home, you know, lol. Hope you had a horsey day as well.

Hi Darby, here's a vote for ya. Well lot's got done today again. Finally finished stacking those 2 loads of wood, measured out to about 1.5 cords, but I packed it tight! It got down right hot out, 82 degrees, ha ha! So had the kids out all afternoon, and then about 3:30 each one got a turn at getting a power wash with the horsey power rake. Nice and shinny they are. And of course did get to see the last half of the Giants game while the horses were out. We won! Tonight's the Jets game, hoping they win too. Harley's eye is much better today. And the anti-inflamatory drug has him running like a crazy pup again! Told him to take it easy, don't want him hurting himself. Tomorrow it's back to riding. I'm sure Paige will love that idea, and possible Indy too. Marion and the blondes.

some of you know I've been absent from HC due to bringing my 65 yr old brother from MI here to TX due to a stroke. he died on Tuesday. been busy with family and funeral plans. now it's time to adjust to life without him.
had a 3 yr old pony rider on godiva yesterday. that's always fun! she was happy and chattering away in toddler language for about 20 minutes then godiva snorted. little one began crying! you never know what will set them off. Princeton has been bucking, rearing and running in turn out so I put an 8 yr old on him a few weeks ago. he is still limping on the bowed tendon leg. :( I don't think it hurts I think it's just scarred and shortened. I will use him for the occasional small child. he likes to be groomed and given treats at the end. I haven't ridden much but the weather is slightly cooler and i'll have more time now so hope to get in the saddle later today. thinking of you and hope you're enjoying some horse time, too.
