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
.

Wow, even have Thanksgiving dishes all done up. Have a few more minutes now to send out votes. We had 10 for dinner yesterday. Mikey's girl friend made the turkey, which was home raised. Other than the buns, everything was raised in my garden, at least veggies, and all the pickles veggies. No I did not harvest wheat to make the buns. :). Surprised that the pumpkins pie tasted good, but I did cheat and buy bought pie crust....I did practice making crust, but even the dogs would not eat them, Jack the calf loved them. So the hardest part of making the pie, was making the round pie crust into a square cake pan.....but I made it do. Had a couple of guest, just friends of one or two of my sons, who had no where to go, so just tell them come along.

Our weather is so nice for November. But I know its coming...snow. Snow, I do not mind, but rain/snow mixture is hard to deal with. Everything is so wet then frozen. Mistit still wants to stand outside of the shed. Big enough for a whole herd inside, and I know Whisper always makes her move. I think for the winter she can go in with the calf, Jack, but Jack gets grain and she sure does not need it.
Get 150 bales of small bales of hay, so have to move the large chicken/guinea pen out, and clean where it was. Glad to get extra hay, it will help insulate the over head which slides sideweays.

Mike is the baby of a large family, (10 brothers and sisters, we both have 10). He is closer to Barb's kids, only a few yrs different in age. They gave him the last Afghanistan that she had made. It will be like a hug from her/them when he is cold.

How are things up your way? How's your weather? Ours remains very dry but is cooling off. Have you been able to ride much? Have you seen any more coyotes?
The all breed show I helped at this Saturday was fun. There weren't many people there but the weather was perfect and everyone had a great time. I met a lot of Tackies and owners I know through FB but have never met and they were all very nice. Also saw a couple of Gypsy Vanners (I've seen tons of pics but never met any in person) and a couple of Marchadors from Brazil. It's the perfect laid back atmosphere to introduce a horse to shows and I really hope to get Allie down there sometime.
My Dad's birthday was low key but nice to be with them. Their new house is smaller so most gifts are consumables. Madison painted him a little pic of an old truck in watercolor (both of my kids are decent artists, not bragging or anything, lol).
Well, hoping to ride today, sure miss it. Hope you have a great start to your week.

The hardest part of death, is trying to understand, "why". Death is so painful, to those left behind. Mike's sister Barb, passed away 5mins before they got to Milwaukee, (at her home). He made it back to Powers, Mi. last night, stayed overnight again, and on his way home now. Allie sounds she is starting to understand more of what you are asking of her. Weather here is nice again. Got up to 60 yesterday. I went to visit my sister, Becky, she still can not see much, but we talked while I dug out carrots. Now, I am peeling as many as I can blanch and fit into the freezer.....which there is not alot of room. I will have to eat all the ice cream in it, so there can be more room. Bring your spoon and come help.

Most kittens "want" to eat, but this little guy has to be made to eat. Drinks a bit of warm milk, and will eat tuna, or hamburger bits, if I put it in his mouth. Rubbed him all over, trying to find "something" that hurts on him. The way he trys to crawl away, is like he is afraid. This morning he at least looked alert.
Butchering went well yesterday, going to go help cut up the meat in just a bit. That takes the longest. But everyone wants their hams and bacon smoked, so those are big pieces. Lard I will give to my sister for making soap, and the rest I will render down and mix with sunflower seeds, and cracked corn for the birds and chickens. Nothing gets wasted. Even the hide gets spread out for the wild birds to eat the fat off. But for now, it has to be rolled up and frozen, until needed.

Started sending out votes at 6:30 this morning and here it is nearly 11:30 and just making the first comment. Been cutting more firewood. Most oak, and not small this time. Stuff is about 20 pounds each, and then have to care 1 piece at a time out to the road to the truck. But weather is so nice today, and any time I am in the woods is great. Horses are out enjoying the sun, sleeping and cows are laying down, and no rain today, but in a few days it will be back with the wind.

Are you getting to ride alot and enjoy some nice fall weather? We've cooled off too, usually highs in the 70s, and lows in the 50s or 60s. Unfortunately, still no rain. We are very dry, but grass has died, so there's not much to water.
The drills sound like fun. It's good you have 2 horses and siblings to practice with. Drills would be dull by yourself, lol.
Allie is doing fine. I haven't been able to ride in a week, so she's usually full of herself and very stiff in her face when I start back riding. She is one pig-headed pony, but so friendly that you can't help but love her.
Well, I have a busy day of church and homeschool today (lost a couple of days to visiting my parents). Hope you're having a great weekend. Take care.

Rained most of the day, so I spent time cleaning headstalls, reins, and leather tack. I have way toooooo much, so was putting things together for sale. Looking out the kitchen window, I seen a fox grab a chicken running back to the coop, as the rain started again. I did not know I could run that fast, but across the lawn I ran, opened the horse gate, and yelled, (my Rebel yell) so loud that the fox was surprised. It dropped its lunch, chicken ran back, fox ran into the next pasture, and I ran after it. Finally, it ran into the woods, with my warning. I set the live trap near the coop, and locked all cats in for the night. Empty this morning, so nobody goes out today. Now, thinking back, the other day all the guineas were making very loud noises, right in the north pasture where the fox ran, and I bet it was in the long grass, when I went out there to see what the guinea were seeing. I know they do that when the neighbor's dog comes over. I count each batch of chickens/chicks each night and look and look if one is missing. So far, I lost one guinea and one young chick this summer. Now I think I know where they went. If it had not been raining, I would most likely been outside working or the dogs would have been outside. I did come in soaked and shoes muddy, but at least the hen was OK. Last night, she was up in the roost with the others, but I am watching her to make sure she is eating and drinking.

Raining again, cold rain, and very windy. Still have a few chores to finish up outside. Rain and wind is bring down some of the leaves off the maple trees. Time to clean more tack but in the house today. With all the rain, so many mold spots on the leather. What was that stuff called to keep moist out of the tack totes/boxes?? I did look when we were at Menard's, but forgot what the name was.

Most of the ducks and geese, along with the birds, totally leave Wisconsin. They have more sense that people. Some do stay near the open waters in southern Wis. near the Mississippi. Yesterday was so nice out. I was digging up potatoes for storeage for the winter, and Sadie was so "helpful". Well, lets just say I wish she would dig in the right places, and when I throw the bad ones in the "bad" bucket, she would leave them there. Today wwe just got back from hauling in firewood. We go where they have cut and take the limbs, or stumps that are left. Lots of heavy wood and long walks caring one or two pieces at a time. You can not back the truck up to the pile, so to speak. You haul and carry. You sure get your excise and I will find out tomorrow what muscles I forgot to use. Not really, I very seldom get sore, but I do listen to Mike's complains.

Glad you're getting to enjoy the fall weather. Any riding? How are those cute goats?
Can't believe it's the last day of sept already! I'm loving the cooler weather (52 this am) but not looking forward to the time change. It's really a challenge to get the critters fed in the evening so early.
The field trip yesterday was fun. My favorite was the blacksmith, I wouldn't mind giving that a try.
Rode Allie yesterday, and she was right back to always trying to go faster and worrying about it when we did. Gotta figure out what to do about that. The progress she made in the roundpen isn't really carrying over to the riding ring. I'm thinking we're gonna have to do a ton of loping till she realizes it's not the end of the world, it just makes her tired. And pray she doesn't buck or run wide open in the process.
Well, hope you have a great friday. Take care.

Thank You for sending Mistit a vote of congratulations for being HOTD.
I just wish she would have her foal. She still is fat belly wise and has milk. I wish it did not 150 dollar farm call to have the vet come out, but she does not seem stressed or off feed, runs around with Willow and Whisper. So, if it a fault PG, then I will know soon.
Rained all day long yesterday, not hard just light rain, and wind, temps were around 44, so fall is certainly here. Geese are heading your way, been so cloudy, but I can hear them. Caterpillars are everywhere, it seems I am always putting them out of harms way, so they do not get stepped on or ran over.

Busy trying to play catch up, neighbor stopped over yesterday morning, just as we were to leave to pick up Mikey's pills and take Dominic home. She always has so much to tall about....she the reason we do not need a newspaper.... :). She knows all the news. So her 2 hour visit puts me behind all day. He had to leave early to dress Mikey's toes/foot, before we went to Mass. How I have a double batch of tomotoes/celery/chili based which did not get into jars...yet. Will can it tomorrow, but want to get everything ready today. Did most of the work last night, but Sunday I don't do work that can wait. God must have made this day for me to rest, so I try to just pretend I am resting.
Heard from Eric and he said the ponies are enjoying all the extra attention and kids really love them. I knew he had a incubator and wanted guineas too, so I collected eggs for him, and he said his wife had set them already. She was so excited to get them....maybe more than the ponies, but I don't think so.

Not sure about the sale today....want to go, but anytime I take a day off, the fairies seem to take one too. Yesterday, I noticed the spiders started decorating for Halloween, spider webs in every room. The dust bunnies came out and really multiply, and Sadies's mess under the table got bigger. She seems to think, all cardboard boxes need to be tore into 1 inch x 1 inches or smaller.
Ponies did wonderful getting into the trailer, but I felt like a "Judes goat" leading them in. But their new home is so nice. They will have their own stalls, but for now the have a small pen, which will go into a bigger pasture, and 3 kids to love them. I brought everything I could think of that they might need, treats, apples, carrots, brushes, combs, extra halters, 3 new lead ropes, hoof pick, a few stuffed horses, books on ponies, and a few other horsey things. They showed us the other barn, where they had ducks and chickens, everything was so clean, and no mud. I think the ponies will love it there. But Mistit is still calling for them. So that part is so sad for me. I spent extra time with her last night after we got home.

Hope you have had a good week and some horse time. Hasn't the harvest moon been beautiful lately?
I got to ride Allie yesterday for the first time in over a week, and she did well. It was good to be back on her. I'll take the roundpen down as soon as I have time and use the panels to cut the riding ring in half. I'm hoping she can handle loping in a bigger area, but not too much bigger.
Well, hope you have a great saturday. Take care.

I guess I love all my horses and ponies toooooo much, because them having a new home is more important than making money off them. I very seldom, sell for money, this time I am doing a trade(s) for rifle/gun. I have seen the little hobby farm, and can see the love the father has built into his barn and how he treats his other animals.
I take in horses/ponies that need a home, because they in need of help. Usually, they are just babies, and just are not taught anything, afraid and not handled. After, I work with them, and make them ready for their new home, I start looking for someone who wants what they have to give. Pickles, I really thought I would want to keep, but he turned out better than what I thought he could.
Mike has to rewire the horse trailer, since the little pigs, would play under it, and must have created a short. Trouble is, with his artificial knees, he can not get down on the ground....well, he can, but then can not get back up. Waiting for the neighbor boy to come over and help him out.

your weather sounds wonderful. fall is always such a relief after a hot summer, like spring is a relief after a cold dark winter. we've had a few days to only hit a high in the 80s, but most of them are still in the 90s so far. glad you were able to enjoy a nice ride.
i got the idea of "broom ball" from a playday game. you just swat one of those big bouncy balls around with a broom from horseback. there wasnt any game to it by myself, of course; i was using it as a less boring way to work on turning for Allie. turns out, she really likes following the ball and i seldom have to steer her after it. it's fun though.
well, this week is busy with work and errands and appointments, so no ride time. ugh. hope your week is going well though. take care.

As I type, I hope you can hear Mother Nature being a naughty, naughty lady. BIG LOUD thunders, and what a fireworks display...never mind the down pour. My tulips, I planted where I took out the turtle pond "really" are getting the soaking they needed....might decide to bloom before winter. It started before 4 this morning and suppose to continue all week, I hope not this hard. Let everyone one just as it got light, because the rain had stopped. I guess chickens knew more than I did, because they just stayed in the coop, and the ones in the shed did not want to go outside either. Had a good visit with my sister at Mom's, she comes for the Hawkins parade each yr, by herself, and picks up my other sister, who hates to drive because she lost her one eye at 8 yrs old. Up until last yr she had a fake eye, but because of a infection it ate up some of the support of the fake eye, and now has to wait until everything clears up. That and her insurance does not want to pay anything, because the only place she can go is out of network. My sister will take 5 of the baby guinea hens to a friend who wanted some, and I told him I would make sure he got them. I gave him eggs to incubate, but he said he did not know what went wrong, but each time you try a hatch, you learn new things not to do or to do, that you did before. Hey, it stopped storming for a few minutes....yep, I see ponies coming out of the barn.

Went to pick up a new front door from Menard's Labor Day special. Another long ride, over hour ride, to nearest store, long ride after we went 50 miles the other way to Tomahawk for a cookot. Really, Mikey needed one, and we went along and decided to get one also. I "think" we were invited because we have the credit card... :), he has a very hard time being on disability, so we do not mind. Now the front door we have (no window) will go to the back door, and the back door, will go out in the shed, which is my barn. Playing musical doors in a few days. And the shed door, will be used for a baby pig pen, turn sideways. Nothing gets wasted her, I try to recycle everything I can. Dominic loves to call it "Hording" but I have a use for nearly everything. I like to work on my projects with me, and getting very good at taking things apart and painting it or use it for another project. He turned my bookshelf, into a chicken nest with dividers. He is taking a shop class this year, and tells me about all the things he wants to make, so I hope he keeps that mind going, because he is miles ahead of other kids his age.

Weather is feeling more like fall, a few nights with 35, but usually in the 40's. Got home from Mass yesterday afternoon, and not one horse...pony...of steer were in the field. Took a bit to find them, got all the horses in first, and then tracked down the steers and new heifer in or at the edge of the neigbhbors corn field. Finally got everyone in, and it was getting dark. I guess all that walking and running made me tired because I slept until 7 this morning.

Sounds like a beautiful ride. Can't blame Cutter for grabbing a snack here and there, lol, a girl gets hungry.
Had a good ride on Allie in the afternoon. With the cooler weather and 3 days off, she was pretty full of herself. I played a little broom ball again (she definitely was tracking the ball better this time) and then we did some turns into the fence, first at a walk, then a trot, then a lope. She can whip around pretty good to the left, kinda muddled through to the right. It was a lot of fun. Worked up quite a sweat, both of us. So she got hosing off afterward, and Madison and I got in the pool. Those one or two cooler days really chilled the water, brrrr. Had fun but couldn't stay in long.
Well, hope you have a great sunday. Take care.

Mike is still going to be "bumming" today, have to run to Ladysmith for grocery shopping, then to Phillips after school to watch the high school football game, and bring Dominic home with him. Saturday to Mass, and Sunday to Tomahawk for his oldest brother family get together. I get alot of work done when he is not here. All small jobs, but lots of cleaning in the garden and feed it to the little pigs, and their moms. If you check under Willows page, I put a picture of the Scottish Highlander heifer, who is a yr old.

Well, our little farm has grown by one...wish I could announce that it was a foal, but not, it is a heifer yearling. She is a Scottish Highlander, they are a shaggy long haired stocky type of cow, with long horns. Right now she is afraid, but we have her in the pen where the ponies and Willow were in at night. Now, to think of a name. We have been working on getting her since last spring. They are not tamed yet, so the guy had a bit of trouble getting them (3) of them into his trailer. The other 2 went to my son and his girlfriend. Next the little bull will come.

I'm so sorry about your kitty. It's so hard to loose a beloved animal, they make such a special place in our hearts. I hope you and your siblings have indeed been comforted in your sorrow.
We were blessed with some rain last week, which we desperately needed. This week is supposed to be dry, but only get into the upper 80s. I've been riding Allie often in the roundpen so I can lope her safely and shes doing well, even though it's a shame that after 6 mo of riding, we're back in the roundpen again. But you do what you gotta do.

Raining again, and very cool. I have a sweatshirt on, (and all the windows open), plan on making banana bread, and oatmeal cookies, plus put something in the oven for supper. Looking out in the rain, I think of all the things I could be doing or plan to do. I will be working out in the shed, moving the turtle cage in for the keets, as soon as the rain stops. Mike is looking for stuff to do, before its time for Mass this afternoon. I like going to Church for Mass then, instead of Sunday morning.

Awe Monday, not sure what to do first. Chores are done, need to move the white guineas into the other pen, (getting ready for winter, UGH!!) but they need time to adjust to a different pen and house. After both little dogs went home, I need to wash all their blankets and pads, so they are ready when those little guys return. My cats miss them already. Tomatoes are finally getting ripe, and more cockburrs need chopping down....some of them I feel like hollowing "TIMBER" when they fall. Finish moving the turtle pen into the barn for the baby keets too. Mike has taken Mikey to another dr appointment for his toe, the big sores are infected, even if the drs at Ladysmith say it looks good, I say it needs a "real" doctor to look at it, because it is infected. That's why no one likes going the the Ladysmith Hospital, when a sore has pus, smells, and red....that is what is called infection and needs to be treated.....a patient should not have to beg to get some sort of antibiotics for it.

I had a long talk with Mistit while I brushed her, she just kept nodding her head agreeing with me, about it time to have that baby.....its been a long summer, on baby watch.
Sunday vote from Whisper, Willow and the little herd for you. NIce out today....so far...getting some jobs done outside, that usually is too hot out in the morning to do. Trying to move the turtle cage out to the shed for the little keets, because they are out growing their rabbit cage. The turtle cage is about 5 feet high, 4 ft wide and 10-12 ft long, and no bottom, so they can learn to scratch in the dirt. Because its made from chicken wire, I can put long sticks in for roosts, also put branches, and plants so that they learn to hide in the grasses. I feed them clover and grasses now, but cut it up with the scissors. They are too small to be out with the little chicks, yet. The keets have one fault, they hide their little heads into a hole....like between the hay bales, when being picked on, thinking they can not be seen, but they do not know how to move backwards, only forwards, so they get deep between the bales and die. They are a very smart bird...except for that one stupid fault. So I keep them safe until they are older. Most are spoken for except for the ones I will keep...some different colors than what I have now

Some good new on Mistit...her milk is now yellow, before it was just white coloring. Still keep her separated at night, just incase. Rainy again today, but not a all day rain, but enough to make everything sticky and humidity sort of bad. Try to chop down "cock-bur or burdock" this morning, and some are getting like little trees. Like to do them just before they seed out, it is like a small ball of sticky seeds which get in the horses manes and tails, and nearly impossible to get out.

A barn full of fresh hay sure smells good. Weve been getting a little much needed rain in the area lately, so there may be a second cutting around here too. Thats good that you enjoy putting up veggies, sounds like you'll be doing a lot of it soon. A day in the kitchen makes me feel like I'm going to explode, I just can't do it. Same with shopping.
Allie is coming along. I won't try loping until I can get the round pen put back up, it'll be safer that way.

You sound like you have a good garden too....good gardens means good eating, and hopefully plenty to share. My sister plants lots of Kale and always gives some to me. She drys hers, and it tastes so good, just like eating potatoe chips.
Today the humidity is so bad, that we have fog and mositure on everything....like raining inside.

Good Sunday Morning vote.
Willow seems to enjoy being here. Gets along of attention, everyday, I put her halter on, give her a treat, ride her a bit in the pen. She was a kids horses I am sure, likes to walk 10 ft, when I tell her to, then stop, wait until I tell her again, another 10 ft, stop wait. I can just see a kid riding her and continuously let her stop and eat. She is also hard to get her to come to me, when she see I have a halter. But does not run, just stays out of my reach. It is hard to work with her with all the little ponies right there, looking for their treat too. Or nibbling on my boots, to see if that is where I put their treat. There is no hiding them, because they smell so good....Apple and Peppermint. My pockets smell like them, even if I do not have any with me.

Finally have a few days in a row with no chance of rain, so cutting the new seeding today. Poured yesterday, nearly all morning. It had stopped for a bit, and I was moving some of the keets, baby guinea hens, out to a better rabbit cage in the shed, when it started up big time, so I was halfway across the lawn, and ran with the rabbit cages trying to protect them from getting wet. Ended up working out in the shed, until rain let back up. Found a box of headstalls, starting to mold, huh....not even done cleaning saddles, and having to work on the smaller leather things. Washed most of them in vineger water, because read (somewhere) it would kill mold spores, drying is slow, because of the moister in the air. Today, it is cool outside, should stay like that all weekend. About 62 right

Going to storm today, Mike is taking Mikey to his dr. appointment, and will stop and get me "another" bag of chick starter. Probably, would not need it, but when I sell keets or chicks, I send some feed with them. Sometimes, a 3 pound coffee can full, and with the month old chicks eating like they were starving, 50 pounds goes very fast.
Humidity is so high that the floors, (wood) are wet. Everything is sticky, including my keyboard. Baby sitting 2 little yappers, (dogs) for the past week, Barky is the worst, because he likes to live up to his name. Chance is a Yorkie and wants out and two seconds later wants in....runs back and forth between the front and back door barking. I go to let him in and he is already running to the other door. Stay cool!!
