How We Met

We bought Rowdy from a farm where he was ridden by young and crazy cowboys. He had a lot of trust issues, and didn't seem to like women. Also he was very easily spooked if you got close to his face. He was a little spitfire, hence the name Rowdy. He was originally my Grandpa's horse, for many years. Grandpa then took Sebastian, and didn't really ride Rowdy anymore. Since he was so high strung, everyone was terrified to ride him...including me! Rowdy went about 3 or 4 years without anyone really riding him, we would put the kids on his back and lead them around. My junior year in high school, I decided to use Rowdy for a senior project. I noticed he went crazy when a bit was in his mouth, so I got him a hackamore and it was like he was a whole new horse. We started riding English and then going into hunter jumper. We began to compete and started bringing home a lot of ribbons. I fell in love with the old man, and started working on creating a stronger bond with him. Now he and I can't be separated, and his fear of women was gone, he lets me lay all over him, snuggle on him, and hug and kiss his face all I want. I love him with all my heart and I'm amazed more and more everyday by his personality and love that he is able to share with me and others..

I mounted the hay feeder onto the side of the corral. They're building more chicken houses at the egg ranch. Sadie heard the noises they were making and ran over next to me to listen. How sweet that she trusts me. Back's sore from picking up hay. Did it wrong. Have a beautiful weekend. Love and a vote.

Had chores and errands to do, so no ride. Gets dark too early, too. We did get the old hay pallet cleaned up. Screwed plywood over the other pallet. Thinking more plywood and an electric saw should make the other hay pallet safe around Sadie. Farrier's scheduled to come Sunday morning. Looking forward to more riding out front. Loved it. Enjoy your Friday. Sending you each a hug and a vote.

Hi, Brenda. It was a fantastic clinic. Fun, we learned a lot, and the food was better than some cruises I've been. The Carter's really do it up right. (They are no longer affiliated with Parelli)

votes for all (}---{) It’s a little chilly today! That’s ok; I’m at work anyway lol. I Rode Whiskey a few hours yesterday. We just walked, slow trot & loped one time. I practiced backing & side passing. Side passing for me more than the horse; I lose the feel if I don’t do it for a long time. Whinny’s, love & hugs ♡

Thanks for the birthday wishes! I rode Sadie off the property, Monday. She was a little cautious, but happy about it. We rode around the driveway and up and down the road in front of the house. If something got her attention, she stopped. I'd let her, allowing her to check things out. Always something new. The neighbors, up the road, have 2 horses. They were neighing at her. I wanted her to know she was safe. I didn't make her go anywhere she didn't want to go. Baby steps. She didn't want to go back in the fence when it was time to, either. Planning another ride Thursday. Anxious to work with her some more. Love to each of you and a vote.

WOW what a beautiful weekend in Texas. Saturday was too windy but I still rode, & Sunday was downright perfect!!!! Deacon was the lucky boy for both days. Being the winter time he has a lot of hair! I do keep them a little heavier because of the winter so between hair & weight I had to put his girth one notch loser!! :) I will have to back off some feed after February…Went to a friend’s house Saturday evening and played cards and ate steaks ~ yum yum!

Hi, Brenda. They really set up the horses for success with everything, including the fire. The worst obstacle actually, for most of them, was the mattress (I think it was because it was soft).

That's interesting about Rowdy's grandmother. Can't blame her for wanting to get back to her baby! One of the reasons I did the Breed Assignment was that people were always asking if Cisco had some Arabian or Morgan in him - he's very short backed, has great natural collection, and has a very refined head.

Hi Brenda, yes that's the way it seems. As you will see, there were reasons behind all of Cisco's problems (like Rowdy), we're still getting some of them worked out. It's been tough at times, but so glad I "toughed" it out. Thanks.

Most of the North America seems to be frozen. Saying a prayer for those of you, and your animals, who are living in frozen conditions. Please continue to keep Kelsey's family in your prayers. She hasn't been on HC in a while. Her horses are Sugar and Random. She has other profiles, too. Heartfelt thanks. Warm hugs and a vote.

It's in the 60's during the day, 40's overnight. Saying a prayer for those having to withstand freezing temperatures. Please keep Kelsey Conley and her family in your prayers. Kelsey's a HC member. Her baby sister, Joy, a toddler, passed away from cancer. Thanks. Love and a warm vote.

VOTE HERE TOO
Good Morning, we left a very snowy vote. Thanks to COA for the lovely photo edit of Mackie, we just love it. We have a huge storm heading our way, sometime early afternoon. The guys got out for 4 hours yesterday and with any luck at all they can have a bit of turn out this morning, The temp is just below freezing and no wind YET. They have been getting warm buckets for breakfast. They have both decided that soaked hay cubes are a nice treat, yeah.... then a bit of play time as long as it isn't too windy, I don't want anyone slipping on the icy choppy ground. It has been a tough winter for them so far, but better safe than sorry, have a great day, Love Donna Lee
