Miracle's update:
Healing Hearts Animal Rescue and Refuge.
"Friends, it is with heavy heart that we bring you the news of Love's passing. Once we got her safe to our refuge, she started to seize. She had been carefully and thoughtfully examined by 2 vets, as well as monitored 24 hours a day by our staff. We agreed that she needed to be set free, as not to harm herself and to be allowed to pass with dignity. She was surrounded by people who cared, loved and honored her life. She went over the bridge under the warm sun, in the arms of those who saved her from abuse. She was not alone." Love and a vote.

So excited, just had to tell my HC friends. I did some groundwork with Allie today. Afterward I hopped on bareback just to flex her head back and forth. She was calm and relaxed, so I wound up following my niece around on her mare. We stayed at a walk and just rode for a few minutes, but Allie did great. I have a big stupid grin on my face now, haha.

So glad your semester is through, that's got to be a relief. No, doesn't sound simple at all. Dino's checking back with you before spooking represents a huge attitude change. That's great. All your hard work is paying off.
we've turned off pretty warm and dry already. The grass is about to stop growing due to not getting any rain all month. I sat on Allie bareback yesterday just to flex her head back and forth. She doesn't care much about what I do to her as long as I don't ignore her, haha.
I have BJ on the herbs for his breathing and they seem to be helping moderately. It's a good thing too because the manufacturer isn't making any antihistamine for some reason. I think the 2 together would really have him feeling good.
well, happy that it's Friday and the weekend is ahead of us. Hope you have a good one.

it is really good to hear from you! I know your happy to have finished uni, will you have summer classes or wait till the fall? I know the small things mean the most sometimes. To teach and watch Dino learn any type lesson will be rewarding! The farrier was out yesterday and the boys got theirs hooves done and they are all set. Last day of work, I will come back 5/30. Rain is in the forecast but hopefully I can capture a few rides, if not I will get ground work and grooming in there. I also will catch up on rest of the to-do list. I don’t go out of town or doing any other things for vacation as you already know-lol! . I have flown and traveled a many of place my whole life and now I choose to be with my life time love~HORSES! I’ve worked hard all my life to get to where I am now (of course I continue to dream of more with my horses) but my off time is dedicated to them and I’m very happy about that, it truly makes me happy ♡ Have a wonderful day and week ♡

So glad your done with Uni and have more time. Dino sounds like he is really settling down and listening to you. Our weather sucks, Tx is floating away. Rain just won't quit. Our bridge has been under flood waters 3 times in the last few weeks, in a bad year it floods once. We are just a swampy, muddy mess. Was able to get out today after the water went down and get in emergency supplies - that road is our only way out. 4" more predicted thru Monday.

Sorry I haven't visited you in a while. Every time I search for Dino, I just get messages people have left you and not your page.
How's your summer going? Are you finished with this semester yet? Any classes this summer? How are the boys doing? Are you getting to ride and how's it going building Dee's confidence?
my horses are all slick and fat and pretty. Allie has grown up a little and is getting a bit wider, though she's still petite. She's looking good and I can't wait to ride her. We've been on a few times, but not going to seriously ride until she's 3. BJ and Gracie are doing fine, they both get whiter every year they shed out. My daughter finishes the 6th grade next week. Holding our breath that she'll pass math.
well, headed to bed for a long day at work tomorrow. Take care and hope you and the boys are doing well.

how are you and Dino doing? Hope spring time is all you hoped it to be ♡ Deacon got his new shoes yesterday and Rocket and Whiskey had their trims done! I will keep Deacon that way through around July then he will go barefoot the rest of the year. We worked on the stretches again. They seem to respond well and it makes me feel good that I can help them gain muscle and feel better. Whinny’s, hugs and a vote ☆

Princess here;) She has a wither problem, (a chronic bursa)which, once it bursts, would be known as fistulous withers!:P So I've only ridden her TWICE in the 5 months we've had her. I'm just hoping this medicine helps! Have a blessed week!

sorry it's taken me so long to get back to you. I went on a 3 day field trip with my daughter and her class to an historic coastal city in my state. we had fun, though it was fast-paced with a lot planned.
BJ started breathing hard last week, and his antihistamine is on back order and not available, so I started him on his herbs, and he's doing well so far. I was even able to lope him yesterday without him getting out of breath. don't know if it's entirely due to the herbs or just so early in the spring season, but im grateful. and im grateful to you for pointing me toward the herbs. the weeds are growing like...well, weeds. the grass is growing a tiny bit too, and the weather is warmer. having a lot of drizzle, which isn't helping the lake level come up, but is watering the grass.
sounds like school is keeping you busy. getting near the end of the semester is always hectic. glad the boys are doing well and Dee's foot isn't bothering him anymore. hope you had a good weekend, and take care.

What can I say, my work is wet and dirty....
Good Morning my friends, feeling better today, most of the swelling is down, I can see again. For some of our jobs safety glasses are required, however, I wear glasses anyway. This was just a freak accident, believe me this does not happen often, in 14 years it has never happened to me. We had trouble with this flock of birds, they were not taken off feed early enough, it was just a bad day. Yesterday was such a mixed bag, wind, rain, snow, ice pellets then believe it or not, SUN. I am soooo ready for some nice dry weather. Have a great day. we left a vote, Love Donna Lee

COLD, FLU, MUD AND TURKEY POOP....
It has been a week from HE--... Easter is not our busiest time but when we have OT for our holidays, Easter, Christmas and Thanksgiving we call it festive, that is suppose to make us HAPPY about working OT. yesterday a turkey intestine exploded in my face and I got turkey poop all over my face and in my eyes, I'm using antibiotic ointment every 6 hours to hopefully ward off any infection, I feel like I'm looking thru a cloud. I have "boot sucking" mud everywhere, oh except on the two big pastures, we still have snow cover there, I hate the look of the dirty spring ground. Today is a light rain so maybe the snow will finally be gone. We left a vote and a hope for a great weekend, Love Donna

Posted a picture, on Sadie's page, of the shed. Still needs shingles and caulking. Austin's weekend project. He got called into work on Thursday. Going to buy hooks, this weekend, to hang the tack on. Will put the trimming on later. So wonderful to unlock and open the door to get the hay out. The hay is finally secure, I hope. Sadie knows the hay is in there, now. Nosy butt. Lol. Warm hugs and a vote.

Yay! My shed is up, and 4 bales of hay are stored in it. Just needs some caulking on the inside and shingles. Going to transfer my saddle and tack after it's done. got to put some hooks up to hang the halters, lead ropes and bridle, etc., on. So thankful! Sprinkling rain earlier. Leaving lots of love and a quick vote.

Lovely day, sunshine and temps in the 70's. Got Nugget nearly trace clipped, got Meg's neck cleaned up and gave her the W. Nile vaccine. Went out to get Cisco, he evidently woke up on the wrong side of the hay net and was hard to catch, even did a bit of a rear when I went to halter him, so it was back out for more work. It's only the second time he has ever acted like this, then did ground work and he was fine.

weather has improved how about yours? Good to hear from you! I had a really nice horsey filled weekend. After work Friday a hosed down and washed Deacon up real good, he was a muddy mess. He stayed clean over night-he loves to be clean so I figured he wouldn't roll. Had a nice trail ride with lots of friends. I wanted to keep riding but Deacon is not in tip top shape just yet. Sunday was Whiskey's turn for a bath and riding. I rode him some around the home property. They both look so clean and pretty. Today I will get Rocket cleaned up. I curryed him a little but was too tired to give him a bath. We BBQ ribs and shrimp and enjoyed the nice weather Sunday. It stayed cloudy but was nice. Have a wonderful Monday ♡

HI:) I'm glad to see you dropped by:)! Ugh, the rains set in on Saturday- looks like our beautiful weather is over for a little. Oh well, we need the rain! There was already fires by the railroad started by the sparks from the train wheels. Not good! So yes, we need this rain!;) And this week, it doesn't look like I'll be up to much:( Hopefully starting princess on her treatment, but one prob: With all this rain, I'm scared it'll wash off before it's penetrated her skin! Well have a great week, take care now!:)

it's warmer and wet this week. I have the vet ordering some antihistamine for BJ for this spring/summer, and the herbs are ready and waiting too, so I hope it's a better year for him. what was the herb you said was good for arthritis (in humans)? im having a bugger of a time with that these days.
how's uni going? how are the boys? hope you and they are doing well. have a good thur and take care.

♥ we are a soupy, muddy mess here. It will still rain till Thursday or Friday… Feeding time is really all I had with the boys. Their stalls are dry but everywhere else is horrible. It will be week upon weeks before I can ride around the home property. So on my off days I will be forced to ride at Mccown Lake Whitney~what a shame right! NOT… Have a wonderful day :)

it was sunny after work and less windy-wind from the north & east rather then the south. Filled water tubs, turned out the boys to graze and put their feed up that I got on the way home. Just a nice evening before this silly weather hits us today and the next few days! Have a wonderful Sunday and here is a hug & a vote ♡ spring is just around the corner.

Hope Bo does OK. Will be dry lotting porky Cisco soon. Colder this AM than yesterday, but no winds so was much nicer when I went to feed. Deicer died sometime during the night, so had to haul out hot water and break ice. Ordered a new one this AM, and while I was at it, ordered a pair of Mudrucker boots. Love the Mudrucker shoes, but they are too low when it's really muddy, and when it's cold my feet are like to freeze in the plain rubber boots.

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.

Beautiful weekend. Weather heading for the toilet Sunday PM, possible freezing rain Mon AM, possible snow Tues. Scott took out a round bale for the calves and we set up the round bale feeder, so I won't have to lug hay out for them. Will make feeding a lot easier. Poor butterflies are in for a surprise!
