Beautiful day here, too. Meant to ride, but kind of tired after 3+ hours of driving and nearly 4 hrs of riding. Just took out treats for everyone and let them out in the pasture a bit early, they were happy. Weather is supposed to be great thru Sunday, at least.

Wonderful, wonderful day at the clinic. Cisco went from being nearly unridable a week and a half ago to being nearly perfect - still wouldn't go thru the water box, and he did get a little hyper at the last canter. Everyone loved the beads, don't know if they really have a calming effect or we were just having a really good day. He can be such a joy to ride!

Hi BJ & Gracie, here's a vote for ya. Well, Let it Snow, let is snow, let it snow! And it did and still is! About 10 inches or more, plowed the driveway once all ready today. Had about 6 or 7 at that time and it was that nice wet heavy stuff. Lost electric once for about an hour, generator did it's job! Thank goodness! But now they are talking freezing rain over night, funny how it was snow at 34 degrees and it's going down to 25 and will be freezing rain! Go figure. So anyhow, went down the barn and brushed them and gave them hay and warm water at 2 pm today. Then I plowed snow with the tractor, got wet, but oh well, it had to be done. Happy Thanksgiving to All. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi BJ & Gracie, here's a vote for ya. I guess we were all in the same boat yesterday, HC, DC and SAC were all down from the afternoon till this morning! Well we are in a record breaking temp of 68 degrees today. But don't get used to is, cause on Wed into Thurs, could be between 6 to 10 inches of SNOW! Yep right into Thanksgiving! At any rate, had a great ride on both Sun and Mon on Paige. Today I moved the snow blower to the front of the garage and got it ready for work! Also Kevin and I built two 6 foot long flower boxes to use in my trail course set-ups. Tomorrow if the hay barn is warm enough, I'll paint them. Then just have to get the fake flowers for them. Also taking the Trail_Et trailer to have Bill look at it and see if they can fix it up for me. Say a prayer it can be fixed and not cost me an arm and a leg! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi BJ & Gracie, here's a vote for ya. Well very productive day today! Got the kids exercised and had to turn Bullseye out alone while we worked on Indy's stall. Steve came over about 1 pm and it took over 2 hours to almost finish the project. Bedding stall is insulated and done! The we measured and cut the hay stalls door, but because of the amount of old hay in front of it and blocking it, I'll move that tomorrow when I have a mask on and can open some windows, yes temps in the lower 50's on Sunday. Then I kicked Bullseye out and put Indy in his stall so we could tackle the big job. Indy's insulation is in and the plywood over top is on. Of course it only took him about 3 minutes to go over and rake his teeth on it. I have to get some chewstop and paint it. Sprayed some Bitter Apple on it for now. From moving just enough of the old hay, I've got a runny nose and cough, it was dusty and some mold on the bottom. But I never go near there, so disturbing it got my asthma and allergies going nuts. Will finish up tomorrow and for sure ride again! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi BJ & Gracie, here's a vote for ya buddy. Another cold and very windy one. Today was take the new truck on an adventure to Home Depot. First time it got to be a work truck! Carried it's first load of materiel in the bed. I picked up 3 insulation panels for the three dutch doors on the front of the horse barn. One sheet of plywood to go over the top of Indy's door, don't want him eating the insulated board. And several bags of ice melt in prep for the winter. Steve across the street helped me get the big stuff to the barn and hopefully tomorrow he'll help me cut everything to size and place in the door frames. Kids got hay for lunch and fresh water, they were happy. Tomorrow it could go above 35 degrees in the afternoon, so I'll ride them then if we are done with the project, otherwise at least lunge them again. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

HI BJ & Gracie, here's a vote for ya. Let me first clarify, I'm not moving or going anywhere. Yes, I have owned my own farm and built it from dirt up, over 36 years now. Love this place. It's my Trainer Marissa that'll be moving in the early spring. She rents where she's at, it's nice by they haven't made any of the improvements that needed to be done by winter, and winter is fast approaching and things are going to be ugly over there again. So she's looking into a couple of other farms to rent. Okay, this just wasn't a good day. I had a noontime appointment to take my 1991 Trail-Et goose neck trailer too to have the frame looked at. I have some really bad rust spots that started getting really ugly this summer. This first shop told me to scrap it, not worth fixing the frame and not safe to haul in! Really upset me, as this trailer is lighter and smaller than my L/Q trailer by far. So I called the place I brought my Featherlite L/Q from and they told me to call back Monday for appointment to take a look at it. Bill thinks he might be able to salvage it. Interior for horses is excellent, so is the tack room and small dressing room. Anyhow, got home and was so bummed I didn't even work the horses. Went to Kevin's and crying on his shoulder. We'll see what happens next week! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

HI BJ & Gracie, here's a vote for ya. Bust cold, cold day. Didn't get above 28 degrees again. Did get everyone lunged and cleaned up today. Then went on a road trip with my trainer to look at a new barn and indoor with another barn with a hay loft and bedding storage area above it. Same distance from my house, so I don't care were we go. It's got pro's and it's got con's, but with some TLC is can be doable. So time will tell. Hopefully tomorrow it'll warm up enough so I can get a ride in. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

LOL, will probably ride in either the side pull or bosal. So very glad Steve's doing one more "mini" clinic (4 hrs)on Wed. Such a good work out today, will ride tomorrow with the rhythm beads and see how he does. How is her "Queenship" doing?

Hi BJ & Gracie, here's a vote for ya. Burr baby Burr! 23 this morning with a wind chill of 14, and the high was only about 27 with windchill of 16! So it was not nice out there. I have to find my knee warmers, I didn't put them on and working out two horses in the indoor and then being outside getting wood, my poor ole'arthritic knees were screaming when I came in the house. Only lunged today, hopefully tomorrow ride Paige. She was bucking up a storm lungeing, it was about 36 inside the indoor and she felt good, kinda glad I didn't saddle up! LOL! Heats on in the barn, it's about 50 right now in there when I feed a little while ago, kids are nice and toasty in their blankets. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Warming up here. Yep, some days Cisco is like "Honey I have a headache, LEAVE ME ALONE!". It's usually better to just wait and ride the next day, but hard to do that when you're at a clinic. Have been told I impressed the H*** out of everyone by getting on him Sat afternoon and riding him in his halter. He actually seems to do equally well in sidepull, bosal or halter. We just go with it.

Hi BJ & Gracie, here's a vote for ya. Well we got lucky last night, no ice and no snow, just rain and rain all day today. But going down to 23 tonight and a high tomorrow of only 28 then 12 over night tomorrow, winter is moving in on us. Got the L/Q trailer all winterized today, Anthony and I got it done, so I don't have to worry about the pipes freezing and busting lose! Lunged Paige and did some showmanship, then it was time to go for my Chiropractic adjust and to Wally world to get some things and groceries. Guess I'll make sure the heat goes on tonight in the barn for them. Spoiled kids, well me, cause it's more comfortable for me working in there and breathing in there.

I think it was a combination of him NOT being in the mood (he was very difficult to catch Fri & Sat - normally he walks up and sticks his nose in the halter, but he was galloping around with his tail flagged, then when he would come up to me, as soon as I went to halter him, the head went straight up and off he'd go), the cold and wind, and not being ridden lately. Mares can have "mare" days, Cisco has "Cisco" days.

Hi BJ & Gracie, here's a vote for ya. Well it was cold and never got up past 38, they said 43 for a high, lied, and we had some sleet too in the early afternoon. Didn't get to work with the horses at all today. I feel bad about that, but I got an invite out to Kevin's for dinner with his family that came up. So I hung out there most of the afternoon, right till pm feeding time. Did get to Tractor Supply and picked up another load of pelleted bedding, so should be okay till March I hope. I did try to get on Dog channel about 2:30 pm real quick and it was down, so I tried HC and it locked up to on me. Now it's all fine. Who knows! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Glad you got in a good ride!
Cisco was in one of moods this weekend. Didn't ride Friday, but did lunge him. Sat AM warmer than expected, Cisco put on quite a show. He was very tense when riding in the arena, and nearly blew up when we left out for the small pasture, so got off, led him around, then mounted. Decided after talking to Steve at lunch not to ride, but lead him down the trail. He softened up, so got back on - thought Steve would have a heart attack about me riding him in his halter. Very tight for a few minutes, then settled down. Got very tight again near the end, so dismounted. Steve was having trouble gathering up 7 halters/leads and the mounting block, so Cisco got to play packhorse and carry the halters back to arena - he was totally calm about it.

Hi BJ & Gracie, here's a vote for ya. Well it was just down right cold and windy out today. Never got above 36 degrees and very windy. So I scrubbed the idea of going to Tractor Supple for a load of pelleted bedding, didn't want the barn door wide open for like 30 minutes to unload it. I'll do it tomorrow, warmer and no wind, but no sun either, but warmer is the key word. LOL! Got everyone lunged and did showmanship with Paige. Good grooming sessions for all in the barn with yes, the heater going! I had it up to about 55 in there. Very comfortable for all of us. Took some more pictures of the truck, still not totally happy with the exterior shots, just couldn't get a good picture of the color, today it looked more red than brown/bronze. Will see what tomorrow brings. But it sure is nice having it sit by the house. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi BJ & Gracie, here's a vote for ya. Well we only got an inch of snow last night! But BURR when getting up this morning, and the high was only 36 up here on the Mountain. But I didn't care, I went and got the new truck today. Loan money was in my account and off I went to get Beast! They gave me about a 90 minute or more lesson on all the bells and whistles! Then the salesman and I took a ride to the fuel station and he put in more diesel, about 3/4 they gave me with the purchase. So that's like about $100 savings to me. Took it tooling around, over to Marissa's and her and I set my phone up for in dash text messages so I'm 100% hands free with it. Then we went out to lunch and talked over the game plan for new show season. We both can't wait all ready. But the time I got home it was like 3:30, so they got a late lunch of hay and fresh water and I just relaxed from all the excitement today. Hopefully I'll be able to get some really nice pictures tomorrow and post them. The color in the full sunshine is amazing! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

I guess power really does go to her head. That's awful about the trailer incident. Meg is very good about riding in company, although she will pin her ears if a horses gets TOO close. If there's not room for circles, you could do serpentines, that also keeps their minds busy and is easier to do if the trail is narrow.

Hi BJ & Gracie, here's a vote for ya. Well the temps dropped and as of 5:30 pm our time, it was snowing and sleeting out there! So much for those last few 60 degree days. Had to run a couple of errands this morning, like Kevin to therapy and then to get grain for Indy and Paige's Alfa-Lox. Got home and took some more hay to the barn, brought in 3 full boxes of wood, in anticipation of tonight's snow! The worked Paige out, after that her and I did leadless showmanship work, she's on! Then it was Indy's turn. He's such a momma's boy, wouldn't leave my side in the indoor! Everyone say a prayer that the barn has transferred over my money and I can get my truck tomorrow(Friday).

Hi BJ & Gracie, here's a vote for ya. Spent the day busy on the farm, last day of 60 degree weather for us. Theses three days were a godsent and I got a lot more done outside. Fixed the ruts in the driveway down to the barn and then really dug up the indoor so it's really soft and fluffy. Paige was really good for her ride today too. Then I had a few other things to get done, and take a nap! Guess who didn't sleep last night, someone was on a natural high from driving her new truck! Hopefully they are thinking Friday no later than Monday hopefully. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.
