The humidity was lower today so it feels more comfortable outside. I had a good training session on Allie this morning. She is very slowly starting to understand turning and one rein stops. We're in the round pen still, and probably will be until I have a better handle on her. I shudder to think of a spook and run that builds steam out in the riding ring and turns into a runaway situation or a bucking rodeo. Cut grass this afternoon and ran up to the feed and seed.
Hope you're having a good weekend as well.

As you know, Susie survived all her tragic incidents and accidents. Through it all she has been a real trooper. She is the biggest horse in the pasture, but she allows the other horses to boss her around. She does anything you ask of her. She is such a sweet and playful mare. I call Susie my “million dollar” horse. One because of all the time, effort and expense we have invested in her, but the second and main reason is because nobody has enough money to buy Susie. She is worth the world to me. She has found her forever home. She will live here at our pasture for as long as she is alive and she will be laid to rest next to dear sweet Lollipop, when her time ends. She has touched my heart in a way that I can’t explain. I hope she has touched yours in some way through her story. The End.~~~~
Our HOTM run has come to an end. I have enjoyed sharing Susie’s story with you. Thanks to all my HC friends for your support. (Left a big thank you vote)

November 1st Susie is home and once again she is confined to the barn. We are having to change her bandages every 3 to 5 days. This is getting to be a task. Also having to clean out the barn everyday, with her many piles of manure and wet areas. lol Susie was getting bored being confined, away from the herd. So on November 16th, my husband decided to let Susie out of the barn and put her in a small pen area. Well you know Susie…she was not content to be outside, she wanted to be with the herd. So she tried to jump the fence and managed to get her leg caught in the square fencing. Yes, it was her left rear leg. We brought her in, doctored her leg and bandaged it up. She had completely messed up the grafting process. She remained in the barn another 10 days. At this point the wound had pretty much healed but the hair had not regrown. We knew that this was the best we could hope for, so we removed her bandage and set her free.

vote for the pretty girl!
Hello to all-finally! So many things and changes have occurred lately.

My dad was released from the hospital and the assisted living facility would not take him back, so we got him set up in a skilled nursing facility on the dementia/Alzheimer's unit July 16.

Spent the weekend in Tennessee and officially became a grandma (I'm 43) on July 19. Madilynn Bree weighed in at 9lbs 1oz 21in long by C-section after several hours in labor. Mother and baby doing very well.

4-H fair week July 20-25 was a long week for us! Daughter Courtney did well for her first year, 2 5ths, 2 4ths, and one 1st place ribbon with a trophy. She earned that one in bareback pleasure on our fat leased horse Pumpkin! Bub and Bee were quite the handfuls as they did not want to be separated from each other and kept calling back and forth so they didn't do as well as they could have. I'll be adding pics and Pumpkin on as well since now I have time, because...

I just had surgery on July 28. Had full hysterectomy because of severe fibroids. I was in a lot of pain almost constantly, but I'll leave out the gross details! I had to go in early to receive blood prior to and during surgery because of low hemoglobin. I'm doing pretty good so far considering. My wonderful husband Matt cleaned the stalls yesterday and had to dump several times as the horses were left in due to weather risks and did not want Courtney to handle them without supervision.

I hope all is going well for everyone and I'm glad to have time to rejoin in the conversations on HC! Have a blessed day!!

Hi Kisses, here's a vote for ya. Well another hot humid one today. Feels like was 96 with a real of 92 again. Started packing by 8 am and was done in about 90 minutes of loading bedding, hay and all the other major stuff. I was dripping wet in sweat! Gave Indy and Paige their show shaves and then did our Showmanship patterns in the indoor with Paige. Only stayed in there about 15 minutes and then back to the barn and 6 fans going! We'll be leaving about 10 am tomorrow, since it's only a 30 minute drive to the Fair Grounds. Yes, this is the Quarter Horse show that precedes the Sussex County Farm and Horse Show in Augusta NJ. Hopefully beating out the thunder storms and getting all settled in. Will miss y'all and might list on FB if I have time. Marion and the blondes.

Yeah, I noticed that it's fairly comfortable here right at sunrise. By 9 am, it's getting oppressive and heavy.
Sounds like you have a pretty stout fence charger. Mine is supposed to be a good one, but something is wrong and it's just putting out a tickle.
hope everybody is enjoying the hay field. They probably think they "escaped" in to it, lol.

In answer to the question as to what caused the proliferative lesion, not really sure. Not sure why she got pythium and the other horses at the same pasture didn't. They did say that her immune system could have played a part. The birth of her foal could have weakened her immune system and made her more susceptible to diseases. After all of this we did put her on a supplement for her immune system called Tri-Mune.~~~

The grafting process consisted of taking punch grafts from Susie’s left side of her neck underneath her mane. They took a total of 22 punch grafts and implanted them into the wound bed. Her leg was bandaged and they would wait five days before the bandage could be removed. Susie remained at LSU until October 31st. Halloween day she retuned home after a total of 17 days. Now the fun begins! lol (A click on the horseshoe)

I grew up riding rental trail horses, and the only cinches they used were the string cinches. If they really liked the horse, he got a fleece liner over the cinch. Lots and lots of girth sores and saddle sores in those poor horses.
it'll be a long time before Allie is ridden long enough to really test a cinch, but so far, she seems fine with a neoprene. It's funny, I accidently ordered one a couple of inches shorter than I wanted, but then the new saddle has dropped rigging,which I'm not used to, and 2 inches longer would have definitely been too long. So fortunate I ordered the "wrong" length, lol.
Hope your critters are all doing well and it's not been too hot at your place. Take care.

Hi Kisses, here's a vote for ya. Well it was a hot humid one today. Heat index was at 95 degrees, straight up temp was 90! So Indy and Paige were both only lunged for 15 minutes, with every fan going in the indoor, plus the big 36 round fan by the one door way. So it wasn't all that bad in there out of the sun and humidity. Then I waited for the sun to move and shade the backside and northeast side and then I weed whacked all that down. Moved the trailer into the driveway closer to the garages and will start to pack it up tomorrow. Remembering to bring a ton of electrolytes for both the horses, dog and myself. Although the dog will be into the trailer almost 24/7 in the A/C! Lucky him! Marion and the blondes.

Almost at the end of our HOTM run...yay! Keep the votes coming and thank you.~~~

Susie was going to have to return to LSU to have skin grafts done. The wound would not completely heal without having the grafts done. They needed the wound to start healing first and then after it reached a certain point, they were going to implant the skin grafts into the wound. She returned to LSU on October 15th. However the wound bed was not ready for the grafting, so she stayed there and on October 22nd they preceded with the grafting process. (Voted)

Here's a click on your horseshoe. Rode yesterday, bareback. And we loped, his did good. The only attitude was when he tripped he bucked. That's what he is know to do. It's weird. But luckily he didn't throw me.

My goodness! Horses are so smart. I've noticed that Sadie sometimes has what looks like dried drops of water on her back. Monday, she filled her mouth with water and tossed it on her back. How cool is it that she knows how to cool herself off? I don't know if this is something horses normally do, or if she was inspired by being hosed down or cooling off in the sprinkler. Just amazing! So thankful for the wonderful things we learn from our four legged loved ones. Love always and a vote.

Hi Kisses, here's a vote for ya. Got a lot of little things done today. Spread out 200 lbs of Mag/Cal in the indoor in the super dry and dusty areas, yes I have those, along with some still wet spots from that storm almost 2 weeks ago now! UGH! Well last night we had that storm, I don't think we've ever had lightning and thunder that lasted so long, it was well over two hours of it. And the rains finally came, heavy for a while too, I was worried about more seeping into the indoor on the low side, but all was well. Rain gauge said one inch. Today was major food shopping day and get all that's needed for our horse show this Thursday when we leave. Horses were out late in the afternoon, as it was very hot and humid earlier, then it seemed to drop in humidity and a nice breeze came in. Tomorrow it's back to riding and start to pack up the trailer. Marion and the blondes.

The next day October 25th, a surgical excision of the lesion was done. Preliminary results were not consistent with pythium. However a culture was taken and sent off for testing. The initial diagnosis was an ulcerative and proliferative lesion on the lateral aspect of left rear pastern. After the surgery was done Susie remained at LSU for 9 days, where she was confined to a stall and her bandages changed every 3 days. She was sent home on October 2nd. We were told to keep her confined to her stall. However we separated the barn to give her two stalls and the middle isle, where we placed a round hay bale for her to eat. We also had to change her bandages every 3 days. This again was just like when she had her head wound. It is very difficult for someone, without any medical background, to apply these bandages. This bandage consisted of six steps (telfa pad, white cling gauze, cotton combine, brown gauze, vetwrap and elasticon). Try putting this on all while the horse is moving. lol Just lucky there were two of us working together. Susie seemed to be enjoying, once again being treated like a queen. Here's a vote.
