How We Met

I starte working at ESSEX MORGANS. He was a very challenging horse that noone really liked but one time i went into his stall and we "clicked". I could get him to listen, and i started lunging him and working on ground work. Then i rode him. I found out i was moving to mississipi and couldnt bear the thought of leaving him behind, so before i left i bought him. He stayed in pennslyvania for about a month, then he got hauled down here!.

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!

Whiskey would love your support for his HOTM run
In 2008 the decision was made after a talk with our boy’s and Cliff. It was time for me to get back on my horse journey. I purchased Deacon in March 23, 2008 and then bought Whiskey in May 2010. When I run Deacon I will tell more about the 1st 2 years back on my journey. Now that you have some back ground on me and my journey I will start Whiskey’s story with me. As many of you know I trail ride and use to camp with the horses all the time, now we just day ride. Hoping this spring sometime to camp again-fingers crossed =) It has been 2 years sense we have camped out with them. We would camp at Mccown or Plowman Valley at Lake Whitney Texas or at Reynolds Creek Lake Waco, Texas. During those times I have met a lot of people and their different type of horses. On one Oct. weekend we had some friends of Bill’s that was coming that I had never met. I asked Bill as we all were getting our horses ready for our ride that day, what type horses did these friends have? He said Rocky Mountain horses…I said hummmm, never heard of that breed. The thoughts in my head about this breed had me so curious. Now tomorrow we are into his story fully….hang in there! Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

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!

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...

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.

A Job Offer
THANKS, EVERYONE!!! Early last spring, we went to a clinic put on by the head trainer/farrier of a large metropoliton mounted police force (Houston). It was an ART Clinic: Attention, Respect,Trust. Did a lot of groundwork and obstacles in the mornings (including firecrackers while mounted) and then trail rode in the afternoons. At the end of the clinic, he asked if Cisco was for sale. When I told him no, he said that if I ever wanted to sell him or couldn't take care of him, would I please contact him, that Cisco would make a good police horse. I remarked that Cisco was too short and colored, and he replied "If I say he's tall enough, he's tall enough, and we are an equal opportunity employer". He also strongly suggested that I have Cisco seen by a chiropractor, which I did and it really has helped him.

I try flying!
THANKS FOR YOUR VOTES & SUPPORT!!! In February of last year, Cisco became very nervous when I was riding in the pasture. There was a lot going on in the neighbor's pasture, it was very windy, and it was almost the last straw when Cinco decided to come see us. I shooed him away, then went to the south side of the pasture to ride. Cisco spooked at something and spun, and I didn't. Hate that feeling of waiting for the ground to come up. Lay there for a few seconds, wondering what was broke. Nothing seemed to hurt, so I got up, caught Cisco, and remounted (he was a little nervous - wondered if I was going to do that flying trick again, LOL). Rode for another half hour or so

Cisco walks thru Fire!
(Well, actually, it was more a hop over) THANKS!!! In the fall, I heard about a good clinic by 4Shepherds (Dallas mounted police), and decided to take Cisco. He was pretty nervous at first, even after groundwork, but once we got in the arena he started listening. They had us ride stirrup to stirrup in pairs, and Cisco jigged and pranced and atually did a piaffe before finally settling down. We did some fun stuff with flags, then played "leapfrog". Cisco was fine at the trot when leaving the other horses, but when I asked for a canter he BUCKED! They had some really neat obstacles, including a mattress. Cisco was so excited when they brought out the obstacles, it was something he was comfortable with. There was also really large flag, a tarp to unfold and fold while mounted. The only thing he fussed about was crossing the line of fire (real fire), but he finally went across. The clinicians said afterwards that they would never have believed after seeing how nervous he was at first that he would be so good with the scary obstacles.

I'm still here.....
Good morning my friends, I am here to explain my absence. Our household is in turmoil, I'm still trying to get a grip on all of this. The next 7 weeks are going to be quite horrible around here. David's son, Trevor has been diagnosed with cancer, neck and throat, NON SMOKER, he is starting a course of radiation and chemo treatments tomorrow. He has been told that this is a very aggressive cancer and extremely difficult to treat because of the location, they told him he has a very tough battle ahead of him. Trev is handling this well, David, not so much...I chose to remain positive, we have an absolutely state of the art, world class cancer centre in London Ontario, Trevor is young (40's) and he is in excellent health, this was detected early, so even tho it is going to be a rough ride, I need to believe that he does have a few things on his side. Please know that I have missed my time on HC, it has just been a matter of prioritizing, work, chores, and of course support for my David. It tears me apart to see him so worried, the helplessness is getting to me, I am looking into online support groups, to help me understand just what he will be going thru. I am not gone, just stepping back for a bit. Charlie and Sterl May are fine, hating winter, like me, one day at a time, Love you all. Donna Lee

We work things out
THANKS FOR YOUR VOTES & SUPPORT!!! Began feeling really sorry for Mystic by himself, so tried putting him with Cali and Cinco. Again, everything was fine for a few days, then Mystic went after Cinco and put him through a fence. (The horse just can't jump as high as he thinks he can, and the geldings just don't like the poor boy!). As a last resort, I put Cinco in my obstacle course area (200x200) and left the gate to one of the side pens open so he would have a shed to go in. Began letting him out in the big pasture during the day and bringing him at night. Cisco would still chase him, but it gradually lost some intensity. On a few occasions, I even caught Cinco "teasing" Cisco into chasing him. Cinco became very good at following me out to the pasture in the morning and coming in when called in the evening.

Cisco the Demon Horse
Please leave a blog when you vote, thanks! The plan for Cali and Cinco was to just turn them out with my 3 in the big pasture (35 acres). Unfortunately, as a lot of plans go, this fell through. It worked for few days, then one morning I went out to feed and Cali & Cinco were in the neighbor's pasture. Found where they had gone thru the fence, we got that fixed, brought them home, then watched in horror as Cisco went after Cinco and put him through the fence again. Cisco honestly looked like a demon chasing Cinco (Cisco's 15.1, Cinco is around 17hh). Finally got them separated, and put Cali and Cinco in the 5 acre pasture by themselves.

My Herd Doubles
THANKS! Shortly after this, Steve and his wife decided to move back to California to help with the family business, and train on the side there. Unfortunately, they had 5 horses, and could only take 2. I offered to take Mystic, and wound up with Mystic, Cali, and Cinco. Steve had a hormone level run on Mystic (he had always acted studdy, and the mares were crazy about him when they were in heat), and it came back very high. Seems the BLM missed a testicle. It took 3 surgeries to finally locate it and remove it. (he had actually had had one previous surgery, the vet pointed out) I guess they just didn't care that he was a crypt instead of a gelding. Luckily, I had one pen that does not have a common fence with either of my pastures, so that's where Mystic lived until he was finally a gelding. Cisco also started bucking when asked to canter, so we pretty much quit cantering.

Cannonballs!
Thanks for your votes and support, please leave a blog !!! Cisco had always hated stepping in water or mud, and when the clinician and everyone went down to the tank (pond) to let the horses play, at first he wouldn't even put a hoof in the water. He finally tentively took a few sips of water, and kept watching the other horses paw, play and roll and splash in the water. He finally started pawing at the water, too. Soon he was in, rolling, splashing and just having a great time. By the end of the clinic, he was galloping into the water off of a small bank and doing his version of a cannonball! It was so much fun seeing him have such a good time.

Our First Trail Ride
Thanks for your votes and support, please leave a blog !!! A friend had been telling me about how great it was to ride and stay at the Grassland Bed 'n Barn (LBJ Nat'l Grasslands) , and when I saw a 4* Parelli clinician was doing a beginning trail riding clinic there, I decided to go. (Steve was so worried, he gave me a long list of do's and don'ts, and I was surprised he didn't tag along). We mostly did fine, some crow hopping, but nothing too bad. I was one of only 2 other ladies that at some point didn't have to dismount and lead my horse, although there was one time I would have, but was unable to. Cisco "balled up" (literally) when asked to walk thru a muddy spot, but backed up nicely (couldn't dismount - trees on one side, small drop off on the other). We went around up and down a steep slope. This was also Mother's Day weekend, and I think it did me good to get away from home.

Cisco Comes Home
Thanks for your votes, Support and kindness! The first time I went out to see Cisco after John's death, he ran off the other 2 horses; a Belgian cross and a Friesien cross that were in with him and that usually bullied him. He came up to me, and just started flexing his head R & L, over and over. It was like he was saying "I know something's terribly wrong, does this help?" I hugged him and cried - he never liked flexing. Brought him home 2 weeks or so later after doing a 2-day clinic at Steve's. The first time I went to ride him at home - I looked out at my riding area (200x200) and all I could think of was how big it was. But we did fine, mostly, and I finally got brave enough to ride him out in the big pasture, slowly increasing how far we went out. We continued with lessons every couple weeks or so, and also did a couple of clinics Steve put on. And , of course, I rode him every chance I got. Sometimes the rides were a little scary, he can get very tight and nervous, but we just kept yielding HQ and doing circles/serpentines till we worked it through.
