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
.

-25 C = --13 F
OMG, this is the coldest night of the winter so far, and I know I have mentioned how much I HATE winter, this temp is without the wind chill, you can't even imagine how much I do not want to go outside. I went to feed at 4AM, both Sterly and charlie had frost on their whiskers....I guess that answers my question as to whether they go out today or not, looks like NOT...we left a vote, Love Donna Lee PS our wind chill is -40 C

I would suggest to always ride in a saddle until you are VERY comfortable and confident bareback.I only ride bareback at a walk ") I know alot and have heard alot of storys of folks falling off and getting hurt! the nights have been down to the 30's but the days have been warm still in the upper 50's. The cold stuff will arrive late sunday so I think I will get some riding time in before that. Have a wonderful weekend and here is a vote for all~Whinny’s & hugs ☆

Yep, its easy to just come off bareback. Glad you're okay. Glad that you've been able to ride lately too. The weather has been hit or miss up your way. I've been enjoying some riding time lately too and all the horses are doing well. Take care and hope you have a good Friday.

Whoops, sorry you came off but glad you weren't hurt. Temps have been wonderful lately, but we're looking at chilly and rainy next week. Cisco has been doing awesome, tried circle driving him and so far that seems to be key to keeping him happy, and no bucking or tightness.

I had a lesson on Wednesday(2 days ago) Rose was frisky and playful. We cantered in our warm-up to get some energy out. We then worked on circles and coming on the bit. We then did a test a couple times. It was a good ride.

That is wonderful news you have a nice big place to ride. I bet you can't wait to ride it again. Both of my horses are good around cows but like yours-when they see them in a distance they are some what careful until we are closer. Good to hear from you!
It sounds like I'm repeating myself but after work it was so pretty and sunny. I let the boys out to graze and I curry combed them will grazing. Just to wet to ride around our protery right now. Have a wonderful Sunday ♡

so good to hear from you and glad you are getting to ride in the neighbor's big property. that's good the horses are getting used to cattle. i can work cows up close with BJ, but when he sees a bunch off in the distance, it still makes him nervous. i have to laugh at him, silly boy.
we've had some changes around here. the kids' grandmother(my mother in law) died back in oct. i hurt my knee and am still walking slowly and with a limp, though i can ride if i dont use stirrups. my 21 year old son moved out this week, and though he's only 5 mins away, i still miss him. my niece is still living with me, and she's a big help, but has a job and is going to school, so we dont get to ride together like we used to. my daughter started middle school this year, argh! math is really challenging her and we spend a lot of time going over her homework. the horses are doing okay. BJ keeps either getting sick or injuring himself- you can tell he's my best horse, lol. Allie is growing and has been saddled a few times. she'll be 2 this spring, but is still so petite that im not sure i'll start her, but the Marsh Tacky folks swear they are tougher than most horses and regularly start and even hunt off their 2 year olds. i guess they know what they're talking about, but if i start her, she'll get very easy short riding for the first year. we currently have a stray kitten that im trying to find a home for. she's adorable and we've fallen in love with her, but i already have too many animals.
well, i think that brings you up to date. hope you and your family are doing well and adjusting to your new home. it sounds like you have. have a great sunday.

Mid 50's today, slowly drying out. Nice to see the tanks full and water running in our little creek. Horses are a muddy mess, hopefully can do something about that tomorrow.

Ω Deacon thanks all of you for your amazing support during his run! Again love all my HC friends and horses. I took Whiskey Tuesday for a ride at the lake. He hasn’t been out there for a while and we had a cold but nice ride. I got my birthday gift early and it is a beautiful new saddle pad. I will post under Whiskey in a little while. Deacon had the day off! Wed. & Thursday (today as well) is so cold and wet out. Won’t clear out until tomorrow afternoon. Don’t know when I will ride again. Whinny’s hugs & love ~ Stay safe & warm Ω

✞ Deacon is such a sweet gentle soul, he loves kids. When a child is around he lowers his head down with VERY soft eyes and it almost seems as if he tries to make his body small ~it is such a sight to see. Some of you will gasp at this but I don’t lunge Deacon before riding, never have. He has always been such a gentleman. I do lunge him sometimes if I don’t have time to ride and it’s just to have time with him. I sure do hope your weather is better than it has been here. The winds have been terrible 20-30 mph and cold! Happy trails to you and here is a whinny and a click on your horseshoe with love =)

so glad you and your family are doing well, and it sounds fun that Dolly will pull you on the sled when it snows. we are doing fine. my mother in law passed away in Oct, so it will be a little sad for her daughers this Christmas, but still, we have been blessed. ultimately, Christmas is about the hope we have been given, the Light sent into the dark world, because God remembered His promise and sent His Son to us. Merry Christmas!!!

♥ I am off work this weekend. We pick up Whiskey today at 2pm. His eye needed to be doctored 2 times a day is why he stayed so long. I go to work before the sun comes up so I would have only been able to get it doctored 1 time a day. His final doctoring will be tomorrow. I do plan to ride Deacon at Lake Whitney tomorrow. I am hoping Lizzy will go so Rocket can get rode. I will phone vote everyone Sunday though so please vote each day and silent votes are so welcomed as well! Have a wonderful weekend <)__~

☆ Deacon’s registered name is “One More Special”, he surely is one special horse to me. Deacon was born with what people call a “prophet’s thumb”. It is an indention on the right side of his neck. I’m told it is from him lying on his hoof while in his mother’s womb. We thank you for your support during this HOTM run =) Have a wonderful day! Whinnies & hugs =) P.S. hoping to pick up Whiskey today!

(}—{) We ended up getting a light sprinkle Thursday evening. After I went to Tractor Supply & the grocery store Lizzy came over and we had a really nice ride on Rocket and Deacon. Whiskey is at the equine hospital staying a few days. He scratched his eye somehow. I really don’t know how or why he does that so much but the other 2 never do???? Any way Doc says he is doctoring it 2x’s a day with an antibiotic and giving banamine 1 time a day. Cliff may pick him up today or Monday. It is so hard putting meds in their eyes. I can do once its under control. I just can’t stand to touch his eye when it hurts so much. He took him in Thursday Morning so hopefully he can come home today. I miss him and so does Deacon and Rocket. Whinny’s, love, hugs and we left you a vote…..

I had a lesson yesterday morning. We worked on Rose rounding and some on my position. When Rose rounds, it feels cool:) It was a good lesson.
Last night was my awards dinner for my playday club. My last night as sweetheart. I got reserve in my group and got a pretty red halter. We also got a carrot mineral block. It was a good, but long night:)

Deacon would love your support for HOTM!
♡ after my kids got to be 15 and 16 (2008) we had a family talk about them getting new computers or me getting a horse. We agreed that I had gone long enough without having a horse! So a friend of mine that trail rides all the time helped me to find a good gentle gelding. She introduced me to Deacons owner/trainer Bill and I fell in love the moment I saw Deacon.. I know I got a late start but better late than never. On my days off work I will try to phone vote folks but please stop and vote Deacon even if I can’t get to everyone. I am getting his story together. This was a last minute decision I made soooo thank you for your support :)

Hope you've been well, I have not been on HC in a while, life got a little crazy, I have been doing lots of riding with Lilly, go out just about every evening, she gets her feet trimmed on Wens. last week she got all her shots and fall worming, she starting to get fuzzy we have had some pretty cool evenings , hqave not yet had a fire in the wood stove yet but there has been a time or two that it was all I could do to not start one. have a beautiful day love Suz and Lilly

finally back to the computer to Blog, Lilly is doing fantastic, I have all my fall maintenance for her lined up , a trim then Dr. Jeff comes for her fall shots and wellness check, Have been riding or walking every night this week, to keep me focused on the important stuff like love laughter and me time, all this week I have been involved in transitioning my job out, which is really weird thing to do, ( work your way out of a job )not sure what my last day is but I think sometime in Oct, early I hope, I know longer will be doing what I do as of Oct. 2 I doubt my company would want to hang on to me to do nothing for very long after that. I actually can't wait now to get out of corporate America, it has been a good job but I have resolved now that a new, glorious adventureis about to begin. !! Love Suz and Lilly
