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.

I worked from 2 to close, Tuesday, but still had a nice birthday. Got a $20 tip. I told Rick I wanted money for boots. He said he wasn't giving me that much. Said he'd help put the shed up. That works. Austin works on the days I don't, so it's been hard to work on it. With the Super Bowl coming here, Rick's working overtime. Going to be crazy here. The traffic's going to be ridiculous. Thankful I won't be stuck in it. Love always and a vote. <3

HI, left a vote. What a day at the barn. As I pulled up, Nancy hollered at me that they were going to work with the youngsters today. Great, I will get Zip. We turned them all out together in the arena to run and roll before we started to work. Poor Zip got kicked 30 seconds after I put him out there. Poor guy, looked at me like "What did I do"? He is okay. There were 4 horses out there, all geldings, all 2-3 years old. Tasha, Nancy, Katie, and I all walked out there. Zip walked right up to me, so I put his lead on, and lead him away from the others. Good thing I did that! Tasha got "X" and tied him up. Nancy and Tasha were standing close to each other, and then all heck broke loose. I don't know really what happened next. I was talking to Zip and not really paying attention! LOL Just as I turned to look at the gate where Nancy and Tasha were, one of the geldings was standing next to Nancy, and Katie and the other gelding was approaching them. I think the gelding next to Nancy went to kick out at the other gelding but kicked with both hind feet and got Katie! She went down, the horses took off knocking Nancy down! Zip and I are standing there watching this all go down. He just stood there, never had a reaction as this was happening and the other horses running around. Tasha helped Nancy up, she is okay. Zip and I headed over to Katie, she got up, brushed herself off, and went on to work the horse that kicked her. She is okay. Horse got both her hips. She is bruised and sore, she even rode a little later. So glad they are both okay. That really freaked me out! So proud of Zip to just take all of that craziness in stride. Amber would have freaked out, and probably gotten away from me.

HI, left a vote. Got barn time in today. Just played with them. Zip makes Amber brave. She watches him, if he is still alive a minute later, then she will come over and check things out! LOL!!! She has already seen this stuff many times over, and still acts like it is the first time. Zip is curious and brave, checks everything out, and doesn't care. LOL We played with some obstacles today. Had fun doing it. Yes, Zip will be able to go to the clinic next weekend.

HI, left a vote. Tasha just told me that Zip's abcess is gone! He is great today! So happy about that!!!

I don't think that Zip is getting enough daily votes for HOTM, so if you only have time to vote/blog on one of my horses, please do so on Zip's page. Thank you for your support and prayers for my mom.

HI, left a vote. Didn't make it out to the barn today. My mom had her MRI of her heart. The ventricles are good, the bottom part of her heart is good, it is the top part of her heart that is bad. They think she may have a blockage or blockages. She goes back on Monday and Thursday so they can inject dye into her to see if she does indeed have a blockage. She has a irregular heart beat and gets winded just to get up and go to the bathroom that is 15 feet away.

Lilly's doing great, we rode yesterday, and are getting a peak at the Sun today, started work on the orchard today, started cleaning the shop OMG stopped after two hours , started getting grumpy from all the ^&$%#! that has accumulated, married into the farm, so I have a hard time believing how it could have gotten this way, I was raised to keep things clean and organized so this challenge is gonna be hard for me, think I will maybe go for a ride in a while to get rid of my grumpy attitude ! hahaha Love Suz and Lilly

Finally got a day off. Trying to catch up on things at home. I let Sadie out for the first time in over a week. She ran, ran more and loved it. So prissy. In the 70's this week. Shall I dare hope to ride? We'll see. Love always and a vote.

HI, left a vote. My friend Diane, she owned the barn that I used to board Amber at, her dad died on Christmas Eve, his funeral was today.

Thank you all for the prayers for my mom, I am sure it is helping. She had two stents put in a few years ago, she is now not doing so well. She goes in on Friday for an MRI of her heart, they will then decide what to do. She gets really winded just moving around her house, and has a hard time breathing.

I really hate when LIFE interferes with my horse plans! LOL Weather, sickness, and family obligations have been hitting all at once for some reason. Ugg, I really need my horse time. Almost afraid to make horse plans this time around, so maybe I will just try to sneak it in! LOL!!!

HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND...
Charlie is getting his shoes back on his sore feet Monday. I like to give him a break during the winter, however there is no snow cover yet and as you know his feet can be an issue for him, it just is not worth the risk of more problems for my Drama King. I duct taped some pads on for now, he is like a little boy that wants a bandaid for his ouchy, Love my boy. Have a great weekend, Love and a vote, Donna Lee

NO PARTY FOR ME.....
I have to say I'm very dull and boring, no New Year's party for me, in fact I didn't even stay up until midnight...
I picked up a bag of the new grain free feed yesterday, Charlie has been doing well with his new "items" he loves the alfalfa pellets, I was trying to feed all this dry, but I found he left the rice bran and oat flour in the bottom of his bucket, he seems to prefer a soaked bucket and that way I know he is getting it all. So, I added just a bit of the new feed and he loves it. One day at a time. I have been warned that this will take about 3 months for the healing, so I will set my goal for a happier horse by spring. Thanks for all the support and letting me dump this on all of you, Love and a vote, Donna Lee

Happy New Year Eve, very cold vote, it is 19* here in Mosier no wind so thats a blessing but as you can imagine it is frozen solid around here, Lilly and the goat boys seem to be doing good with it though, we just do a very short walk to stretch our legs, got bite by a tick yesterday, I have never had a tick bite hurt like this one, it was really tiny so I kept it and am watching the site for a bullseye around it but so far so good just swollen, yesterday I was running my fingers through Lillys hair on her chest ,she kept backing up I thought she might have a sore spot or something because she kept doing it and her eye's were as big as saucers, finally figured out I was shocking her from the static electricity duhh, I felt really bad ! Well Have a blessed New Years Eve and New Year, may God be your strength and guide in the New Year. love Suz and Lilly

HAPPY NEW YEAR
Good Morning all, we left a vote. Greg came yesterday and did trims, we decided to pull Charlie's shoes for the winter, David is all mad 'cause he says I'm just being tight fisted, Charlie has such sensitive feet and the ground is hard and lumpy right now, as soon as we get some snow cover he will be OK, in the meantime I just have to watch him walk like hs has two broken legs, he is soooo dramatic. He is doing OK no his new feed program, we had a weather change and that is what has made him a bit grumpy the past couple of days. I hope he is going to work thru this ulcer thing, it is killing me...left a vote, Love Donna Lee

On the 1st when I wake I will see who top horse is and I am surely hoping it is my Deacy (Mr. Eyeliner) lol I will get a final vote count before I go to bed the 31st and let you know what his final votes were. Love my HC friends to the moon and back again!!! Have a wonderful day! Whinnies & hugs =)

✞ Deacon is such a sweet gentle soul, he loves kids. When a child is around he lowers his head down with VERY soft eyes and it almost seems as if he tries to make his body small ~it is such a sight to see. Some of you will gasp at this but I don’t lunge Deacon before riding, never have. He has always been such a gentleman. I do lunge him sometimes if I don’t have time to ride and it’s just to have time with him. I sure do hope your weather is better than it has been here. The winds have been terrible 20-30 mph and cold! Happy trails to you and here is a whinny and a click on your horseshoe with love =) P.S. DOlly is on the calendar for March so your run will be in Feb :)
