How We Met

Dolly was my first riding horse ever! She is truly a dream come true for me, my brothers and my sister. Our neighbors told us about a horse for sale nearby and we went to look at her.
Once I looked into her big brown eyes there was no way I could leave her! Dolly is a wonderful first horse, enduring with my lack of riding skills, and teaching me to be a better rider at the same time! The Lord has given me a great blessing!


HORSES

You can hear the thunder of hoof beats, under a starlit sky;
The soft nicker in the morning, when the sun is rising high.

You can feel the softness of a velvety nuzzle on your hand;
And the thrill that shoots through you, as you race across the land.

You can see you horses silhouette, as the sun is sinking low;
Their coats shining softly in the sun's warming glow.

You've loved them all your life, a dream, it seems, came at birth;
And all these dream-come-true- s, make you
feel like the richest girl on earth!

"Examine me, O Lord, and prove me; try my reins and my heart." Psalm 26:2
.

Galloping by with a morning vote! Hope all is well, Darby's cinch cam in, it's great! No rubbing now! I've been working him on jumps, he seems to be more of a jumper than a barrel horse. We made another one yesterday, two feet tall now. I'm going to lunge him over it this morning, hope he goes over it! Best wishes

Well, this morning I rode Darby bareback. We walked trotted and loped. Then I set out o low jump, around a foot in a half. He went over it amazing! I'm so proud of him. We also worked on staying on the rail while trotting. He acted up a little, but overall he was a very good boy today. Thanks for the votes!!! Best wishes

Stopping by with a morning click on your horseshoe. Hope your being able to ride and get horse time in. I plan to give Darby a bath this week, I try and do it once a month.
But right after he usually rolls in the dirt and gets all messy again. Oh well. The days are just getting hotter, 108... crazy.
Best wishes and love always

Going to ride Darby this morning. I rode yesterday ad he did so good! He picked up his right lead, for a couple strides. I also worked on trotting him side by side with Copper. They both did well with that. Then we cooled down on the trail. His cinch mark has been good, no more rubbing. I ordered a neoprene cinch, longer than my last one. Can't wait for it to come in so I can ride western.
Hope all is good!

Cherry season is over, been doing alot of clean up and putting things away that we take out for harvest, hasn't rained in weeks, and weeks and has been very hot, they say Oregon is in a drought and by the looks of the lakes, streams and land it looks like it ! Been doing late night rides and early morning walks, Lilly is doing great, she gets her toes trimmed on Wens. Jack, Daniel ( the goats ) are doing great to, I'm gonna trim their feet this evening, Hood River County fair is this weekend, haven't been in about 10 years, considering going this year, we'll see. Have a blessed week, Suz and Lilly

oh wow, a ride in to town for breakfast sounds like so much fun. does the restaurant have a place to tie the horses? (ive heard of a few towns that have hitching posts outside of fast food places, but I think they were small towns out west). I once rode through a drive thru and the clerk got a kick out of that, but that was years ago.

Sterly is doing really good, as Cheryl said, these old mares with Cushings disease will never regain topline and hip line weight, but the important thing is to have a good rib cover... Sterly is lookin' good and I hope you can all see the difference from one month to the next. No actual pounds gained yet, but remember they have to gain from the inside out...her appetite is excellent and her attitude is young... she is soooo shiny and she has shed out very well on her own, love my old girl. Love and a vote Donna Lee

Summer goes too fast...
Good Morning my friends, thanks for continuing to visit and vote, we have been playing catch up at work since the Avian Flu plus this is vacation time and with people off, we all have to pick up the slack. I have to say, I'm getting tired of OT. David is a big help around the barn, but I don't usually have time for a ride after work, too late or too hot, you remember how Charlie hates the heat and the flies...what a baby, plus June was soooo rainy. Sterly is doing super, in fact all is well. Trevor is wonderful, he was diagnosed with a thyroid issue, due to the radiation treatments, but with meds they feel it can be controlled, so he his working full time and doing very well, everyday is a blessing. We left a vote, enjoy a great weekend, Love Donna Lee

We received 1 ¾” of rain last night-the wind was unbelievable!!! I had to go and get feed and grocery’s yesterday and by the time we were finished it was too hot to ride. I did get fly stuff on the boys and checked the fly mask and then just watched them graze for the evening! Working the weekend but will try to do something with them after work but it will be to muddy to ride. Here is our finial tidbit on the Fabulous Rocky Mountain Horse Breed!
*TOBE was used for breeding until July of his thirty-fourth year, and he passed on his gait, disposition, and other great qualities to his offspring. It has been said that TOBE's progeny followed in his "perfectly-timed" footsteps. TOBE sired many fine horses before his death at the ripe old age of thirty-seven. One outstanding trait passed on was longevity, as many of his offspring were still breeding into their late twenties and early thirties.
Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

Dropping off a Friday morning vote, the farrier for Darby is coming Saturday. I have been holding off on riding due to his long hooves. Do you do the flying lead change? Or come down to a trot before? I'm having trouble with the flying lead change, I don't think he knows hot to do it.
He has got beautiful tight turn though, when I felt him turn a barrel once at a trot I just knew he could be a great barrel racer. That's what the lady I bought him from said too, she use to ride barrels on him. Well hope your day goes well, best wishes!

sorry you missed Dolly's HOTD. it was great to see her there. have you been riding much? how's the new English saddle doing on Cutter?
speaking of saddles, I seem to have bought a saddle for Allie that I really hope will fit her and be comfortable. it hasn't been shipped yet, so we'll see, but i'll post a pic of it when it gets here.

Thank you for voting for Whiskey while I was unavailable the last few days. Whiskey sends you all double loves and hugs ♥ I am actually off work tomorrow and back the weekend!
* In the early 1960s, Sam Tuttle managed the trail riding concession at the Natural Bridge State Park in Powell County, Kentucky. He had as many as fifty horses there, including TOBE. This stallion was often seen tied to the hitching post alongside all the mares. He became quite well known in the ten or so years he was ridden there. Besides breeding, TOBE was used as a trail horse. He carried Sam, and sometimes the trail guides who worked for Sam, with sure-footed ease over mountainous terrain for many years. Although Sam would allow other people to ride TOBE occasionally, it was always a ride closely supervised. He loved to show off his beloved stallion, but also kept a close eye on him. Everyone who rode TOBE enjoyed his gentle temperament and comfortable gait. It amazed people to think the well-mannered horse they were riding was indeed a breeding stallion.
Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

Stopping by with cool morning a tap on your horseshoe. Arena is drying out nicely, hope to ride soon. I hope your week is going good, with sunshine and hopefully horsey time. Over all weather is super hot here during the days, summer has really kicked in! Darby is great, he loves his new treats! It's some alfalfa hay that I give him a handful every once in a while. He eats it up and wants more! Well have a wonderful blessed Wednesday, love to all and best wishes!!!
