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.

Hey Darby, Koot is okay. He has a little arthritis in his right shoulder that he's had since I got him and we've been practicing for our first show of the season this Saturday and he was a little stiff/sore on the shoulder over the weekend so I wasn't sure if he was going to be ready to show but looks like he's doing fine now. Sometimes he's just stiff and working it actually works him out of the stiffness. Thanks for checking in though :)

Come visit me, Kootenai *Thank you for Oct. HOTM!!!*.

☆ Of course the wedding was beautiful and I am glad it is over though. This year with the wedding, merging of 3 hospital systems at work and all the normal makings of life I am smooth wore out! I did ride Sunday & Monday and rested some. Now, time to get in gear for winter. We will pick up 100 bales of hay & 7 round bales next week. We are setting up the deicer in the tub and have it ready for whatever type of freezing weather that may come along. I will also go back to my riding schedule (hopefully) and get them boys in good shape. Have a wonderful day! Whinnies & hugs =)

I went out to the barn in a pair of spandex yesterday ahhh my intentions were to wear my chaps over them because it was chilly well.... these are the chaps I wore in high school when I use to show, Lilly is standing there in her stall watching me put them on got them over my legs but could not buckle them around the waste, I looked at her and said no laughing, she starts bobbing her head up and down like yaa right it was pretty funny and cute, needless to say I need to look for a pair of chaps or chinks that will fit a 51 year old hahahha, love Suz and Lilly

I put Sadie's fly spray in a different bottle, because the original bottle broke. For some reason, she didn't mind being sprayed. It's smells strong. hoping it'll last on her through tomorrow. Lots of love always and a vote.

Still fighting this bug, I NEVER gt sick, I have a very strong immune system, but when I do get something, look out, it will be a big one...yesterday looked like a beautiful day, but it was still cold and raw, and I just did not have energy enough to ride, hopefully today is better, I slept good, so maybe I'm on the mend.

Good Morning all, it was a rough week, first no HC, and then I have been fighting this nasty cold flu bug, I thought I was winning, but today not so much...what I really need is a ride. Hopefully today will warm up enough to hop on a bit. This is Canadian Thanksgiving weekend, and we have so much to be thankful for, we are going to Trevor and Jenn's for dinner. We left votes, have a good weekend, Love Donna Lee

My mom has taken over working Spangle(Mostly)
I have been riding Rose consistently.
We had our last show this past Saturday. We really well in all, but cloverleaf barrels. Rose tried to run over 2 of the barrels.:( Overall it was a really good day. It also had a dress-up contest.
We got 1st! We were Kristof and Sven from Frozen.
I also decided to change Rose to English. We did dressage in our last lesson and she did really well.
My riding instructor asked me to start working with one of her horses named Uno.

Come visit me, Spangle, Zilker & Rose.

Hi Darby, here's a vote for ya. Sorry to see you take a leave of absence! Maybe stop by once in a while and leave a message on Darby's page so we can see how you're doing. Good luck to ya! Well we had a beautiful day today, only hit about 70 with lots of sun and a light breeze, just super! I did manage to get 2 bales of Indy's hay to the barn today, he was almost out and I didn't want to have to carry two flakes and the feed all the time. So the wheel barrel got close to the hay pile and two got on and down to the barn and dumped in the hay stall. Not much lifting at all, thank goodness. Then I did have to fire up the back pack blower and get the leaves out of Paige's pasture, she's in the one right by the side of the barn with all the trees! It started right up and it's light enough with the back pack that I didn't even feel it at all. Plus cut down to only 3 advil again today. Still doing my Traumeel gel rubs and Arnica Montana 30X for the bruising and muscle soreness, really working out well. Kids were out all afternoon again, they are lovin' it! And tonight my neighbor surprises me with a med sized home made from scratch pepperoni pizza! Yum! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

The apple cider vinegar, in Sadie's water, isn't working well. Between the flies and mosquitoes, she's ate up. Lots of spraying, but fly spray isn't doing very well, either. I posted a picture of mine and Austin's cars on Sadie's wall. Mine's on the right, I think. Lol. Love and a vote.

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!
