Finally that Saturday morning rolled around. I could hardly sleep the night before. Everything was running threw my head about what I was going need and about if I had everything ready for his arrival to our place. I kept thinking about how alpha Deacon was and how they would get along. After all they have road a thousand miles of trails together. . The more I thought, the more I felt like after the ride we would come on home instead of camping. I wanted to get him home and on our property to make this dream come true for me. I had never rode Whiskey until the day I bought him, can you believe that!!! It did not matter to me how he rode at all, I wanted him and that was that! We had a nice ride that day and came on home. Cliff broke out his tools and started working around the barn. Today’s picture is of Whiskey’s first comedy show for us. He said (ha ha) “Dad, I can bring this orange Home Depot bucket to ya, I know it has feed in it for me!” Enjoy! Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

Hi, left a vote. Thank you everyone for supporting Toby and giving him the HOTD honor once again! There isn't a day that goes by that I don't think about him. I love that horse so much! He is very happy in his new home, they love him. He has two little girls that love him. They show him and ride him. He is in the best home, and that is all that matters. It was hard to let him go, but easier knowing he is in such a loving home.

Come visit me, Toby & Amber.

As we ate lunch and rested, Whiskey walked over to me several times. He would nuzzle my hand (at the time I didn’t know he was a treat hound) and I felt as if we bonded and we were linked in some way. I told Karla right then and there that if they ever sold Whiskey to please contact me first. He has marbling on his lower legs that are silver, chocolate and nearly liver color (see his profile picture for today). It amazes me to still look at how he is marked; he is just absolutely beautiful-but I’m parcel!!! He is our escape artist, the one that can get into or out of ANYTHING; such a smarty pants and a treat hound lol. Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

Monday we left off about Whiskey’s color and me with 5 hundred questions for Karla! Here we go…That poor girl had never met me before and I could not shut up :) I then walked over and looked Whiskey right in the eye and he looked back into mine and my heart sunk. His beauty was striking and the color was outstanding. He had a smart, sharpness about him-I’m sure he was thinking “what in the world is she doing”. The ride finally got underway; usually everyone has me ride out front and calls me the trail boss! Deacon is a faster walking horse but can ride in the middle or behind after the first hour or so. Well, here comes Rio & Whiskey with their smooth selves!!! They just gaited their smooth self’s right past me & Deacy. I watched Whiskey and noticed he didn’t quite move the same as Rio but still a difference from a QH. 2 hours into the ride we decided to rest a few minutes in a place we call “Carol’s lounge”. We have names for all our spots we ride to rest or to take a break out there because it’s so big. Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

Now were into “Whiskey’s” story really good! I finished getting Deacon ready for our all day ride. We always pack drinks and hotlinks or some sort of sausage/lunch meat for lunch. Bill got a call that they were pulling in and asked us to wait a few minutes before heading out. I guess we had about 8 riders starting out then Karla & Tim made 10-oh what fun! They pulled in and parked and they started to unload the horses and of course I was already curious. Out came this Smokey chocolate colored horse, smaller built and my jaw dropped open in awe….Her horse Rio changes colors as all Rocky’s do throughout the year so he had almost a buckskin color but he is what they call a chocolate color. Then out comes Tim & Whiskey~~~~OMG I thought I would faint…..I was speechless….I had never seen a horse look like that nor that color…I went over to Karla and started all the questions and she explained that Whiskey’s color is called “Red Chocolate”. To be continued Wednesday, phone votes tomorrow =) Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

Congratulation’s Queen Paige “Nuttin But Good” our April HOTM! Here we go with our campaign with Whiskey 237221 to be May 2014 HOTM! I need everyone’s support so vote on his page daily please!!! Every other weekend I am not around a computer so I will phone vote as many as possible, also 1 x a week that I will phone vote :) I will start my story with why I have and will ONLY have such well trained and gentle geldings, then I will start how Whiskey & I became each other’s very best friends along with some Rocky Mountain facts about the breed ♡ * Rocky Mountain Horses are slow to mature and do not reach their full size and weight until about five to six years of age. Generally healthy horses, they often live long lives but do have a tendency to be extremely "easy keepers". Care must be taken to keep your Rockies from becoming too overweight, particularly in their later years.* Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS:
"Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky." (unknown)


“Do not be angry with the rain; it simply does not know how to fall upwards.” (Vladimir Nabokov)

I just realized that was a 100 lb gain in one week for Fatima. I know that is what the weight tape read, but I wonder if it is real. Does it even sound real? Any way that is what it read.


Ok, it is raining here again and here is your rainy Sunday vote. LOL.

I spent a little time outside as our herd ate dinner. I stayed out to keep Fancy from taking Fatima's grain. It is cool outside but it was nice when the rains halted for a while.

Have a pleasant evening

What a SURPRISE for Cowboy and Trigger!
They sure are happy to be your Princes this day.
Cowboy asked me to thank you and leave a vote.
You got it ")

I did get the weight tape out to measure Fatima. I can't believe I forgot I even had the weight tape. She was only 860 lbs. I am going to weigh Trigger. I think he weighs more than that now. Or close to it.

The man that gave us Fatima told me she will not stand tied. Friday and Saturday we worked with Fatima. I am just concentrating on getting her to relax and stand near the tree right now.
Fancy watches when I work with Fatima. I noticed when I turn Fatima loose, Fancy will chase her. And when I leave and come back Fancy will chase Fatima away from me. They remind me of the scene in the movie 'Spirit' when Rain gets onto Spirit for misbehaving with Little Creek. (i think that is his name.)

The rains are once again upon us. I know you are supposed to eat your desert after your main meal. But I never do that when I eat, so today I gave all the horses treats before they ate their grain.
Since it is raining, Trigger was in the stall for a while and Fancy and Fatima stood out eating hay together.

Have a blessed and peaceful night
Love Fancy and herd ♥

Here is a vote from Fatima.
Good evening and thank you so much for voting me HOTD. School began 3 hours late because of the icy weather we had last night, so we peeked into HorseChannel before leaving for school. We were surprised to see me in the spotlight this morning. I am happy in my new home. I just wish that Fancy would not be so bossy. Sometimes she is nice though. We get treats and attention here. It has been a long time since I had a lot of grain. I love my grain. I even try to eat with Fancy in her bowl. She let me get a morsel and then she chases me away. Trigger is hardly ever mean. But he takes Fancy's side when things get touchy.
Well, I just wanted to leave a blog to say thank you for all the kind blogs and friendship. HorseChannel sure is a great place!
Have a great night

Wow! Thanks so much for HOTD!
What a suprise! Thank you all for HOTD! Thanks for all your support once again!

Buddy settled in quickly in the outdoor board with all the other horses, even made some friends. One of the girls who worked here at the time had her two horses on outdoor board, and one of them happened to be a baby. Buddy LOVES babies! I didn't want to ride Buddy until he was settled in and used to his surroundings a little more. So instead of riding I would walk him around the property and slowly introduced him to being inside the barn.

He was nervous about being inside the barn at first, but that was expected as he had never been in one before. He did really good, and soon enough he would walk throughout the barn without being too nervous about it all. After about two weeks I decided to tack Buddy up and ride him outside. He doesn'e like to stand still while being tacked up so that was an interesting time.

After he was tacked up I rode him around the back of the barn for about 10 minutes. He was being such a stinker. Didn't want to do anything I asked, just wanted to go and see his friends in the outdoor board. I gave up after ending on a good note and put Buddy back. It was probably a month later, in the middle of November that I decided I was going to move Buddy to indoor board so it would be easier to work with him, and easier to catch him! More tomorrow…

Cisco
Thank you all!!!! I will never know everything Cisco has been through, and I don't want to know. All I know for sure is his tongue had nearly been severed in half, probably either from a really harsh bit or having his head tied around, and his R eye socket fractured (again, don't wanna know). Steve said he's pretty sure at some point someone attempted to train Cisco to buck, to this day he WILL NOT tolerate a flank cinch. I believe that Cisco was loved and treated well early on, then things just went south for him. I'm also sure he's been through mutiple sales, with his striking looks and proud manner always finding a buyer that's sure he would be the one to "fix" him. I remember Steve telling me at one point that Cisco wasn't only PTSD, but MPD (multiple personality disorder) and probably Bi-polar to boot. One thing everyone has remarked on wherever we go, is how Cisco watches for me. Whenever I am in sight, his eyes follow me. It's an awesome feeling to have that kind of connetion with a horse. Eventually, I think Cisco would have been on one of those one-way trips to Canada or Mexico, instead we plan on continuing our adventures...

REALLY APPRECIATE ALL THE SUPPORT, THANKS! Steve and Amanda returned to Texas last summer,and Cali, Mystic and Cinco went home to their new training facility. I have been out for a few lessons, and a clinic they did in November. Cisco did well, and was voted by the clinic participants the easiest horse to do groundwork with (he had us switch and do some groundwork with each other's horses). Joe, my farrier stopped in to watch for a while, and when he was out next he told me that while he knew I had been riding and doing clinics with Cisco, he couldn't believe how calm he was. He remembered watching Steve work with him in the "early days"

We Keep Riding...
REALLY APPRECIATE ALL THE SUPPORT, THANKS! We had a great, if slightly late, lunch on the trail. As we were starting back, Christy (owner of the B&B), realized she had misjudged the trail and we were still 3-4 hours out. At this point, 2 people opted out and left when the lunch truck went back (one horse was ponied, the other ridden back by Trevor's wife). I decided to hang in there. Everyone wanted to trot to get back sooner, and the 2 horses ahead of us hit out in a long trot. Cisco decided to really move out and catch them, and I realized I was too tired to post. When I pulled him up, it was rodeo time! He got in 4-5 bucks (he was REALLY mad), before I was able to yield his hindquarters and settle him down. Trevor commented "I thought you liked to dance!" (Earlier, I had been moving his hindquarters back & forth in a kind of rumba). Replied "Dancing is one thing, jitterbugging is something else".

THE LONG RIDE...
THANKS, EVERYONE! Was supposed to go on a moonlight ride, but I was getting pretty tired, so passed on the ride that night (we had been spending 8 hours in the saddle every day). The last day, Sunday, we were to do 4-5 hour trail ride, with a lunch break out on the trail. Cisco handled everything beautifully, EXCEPT for the wooden bridge over a ravine. He walked up to it like he was going over, then simply planted his feet (4 feet in concrete!) and refused to budge. It took the clinician a half hour, and then Cisco walked across calmly. I had offered to dismount, but was told no, he needed to learn to go over whatever I asked him to. (That was the only thing he tried to refuse the whole 5 days)

Jumping & Swimming
The fourth day, we went out to the jump course, and worked on that for a while. I had never liked jumping Cisco, he would launch himself like he was jumping 5' over a 1' obstacle, but after working for a couple of hours, including having to meet oncoming riders over the jumps, he was doing so well; jumping just enough to clear the obstacle. We did a short trail ride, then broke for lunch (there was a 4 hr break each day to avoid the heat). That afternoon, we all took the horses for a swim in the tank (pond). Several of us had been taking the horses down to cool off in the water during the afternoons. I needed a little help getting on him bareback, and was pretty wobbly at first but Cisco actually moved to stay under me. Walked out in the water till it got deep, and then we were swimming. Cisco loved it, he groaned the entire time he was swimming like he does when having a good roll. That was only my 2nd time on him bareback, and the first time I had ever been on a swimming horse. Passed on the moonlight ride that night, too tired.

COWS!
THANKS SO MUCH! Quickly learned that Cisco was fine with being ridden twice a day, he was always waiting for me at the gate to his paddock, it was like "Are we going to have more fun? What are we going to do next?" Next day, we started cow work after warming up. The 20 or so cows were brought in the arena, and we just rode around letting the horses get used to them, as some of them had never been around cows before. Then we learned how to "boil" the herd (get them in close together and milling), then we individually walked our horses thru and parted the herd. After that, we actually started cutting! Cisco was amazing, he locked on to whichever cow I picked out and stayed with it. That was thrilling. The 3rd day, we trailed the herd out to pasture in the morning, and did some more cutting, then trailed them back to the arena. Went back out in the evening, trailed them out to pasture, and worked cattle until the full moon came out, then continued working till nearly 10PM. Brought the cattle back in, and called it a night. Cisco LOVED it.

A BIG Step
Cannot believe how much support we are getting, thanks! Our next BIG step was a 5 day Parelli Horse Camp last June. I wasn't sure I could ride that much, but decided to go anyway. The first day was spent mostly on ground work and arena work, making sure everyone could sidepass, back at least 10 steps, and do rollbacks, and walk, trot and canter quietly. We also played some games, notably trying to keep another horse and ride from reaching the opposite side of the arena. It rained that afternoon, so we learned some knot tying before going back out to ride that evening. I was nervous when I found out that we would be riding twice daily, wasn't sure how Cisco would feel about that. We would ride in the morning, take a break in the heat of the day, then go out after an early supper and ride till dark or after (full moon week).

No More Bucking
THANKS FOR YOUR VOTES & SUPPORT!!! The Chiropractor pretty much adjusted everything, and said that the horse had been in pain for quite a while. Really made me feel badly - at least some of training problems I'm sure were related to him being in pain. He had also started bucking when asked to canter, this has resolved. And also, while he had gotten pretty good about his feet, he always really fussed about his L hind being done. He has been much better, even my farrier has remarked on what a change it has made. Cisco will usually now lift a hoof as soon as you bend down. The Chiropractor also pointed out that Cisco's R eye orbit had been fractured - and when you really look at him head on, his R eye is sunken a bit.
