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!

Whiskey’s mane & tail change colors several times in the year by going lighter then darker. His body color changes as well. He truly loves his bath time and grooming, he trailers well in any type I load him in, and will load without heisting at all. He is also my bareback horse. Perfect back for it so if I don’t feel like putting the saddle on I can always just get myself up on him and go at any time. He is the type that will come to you every time from the field or anywhere. I guess that’s the treat hound in him lol.
* The Rocky Mountain Horse breed originated in the United States in the late 1800s, in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains of eastern Kentucky. At the time of its beginnings, there was no understanding of the need to document anything about these horses. The people living in this region were quite unaware that one day their utility horses would become the foundation of a special breed of horse. The existence of these horses was practically a secret for many years to all but the inhabitants of this region.

My Whiskey boy has the antics of a comedian! He is so funny but yet so very gentle and lovable. He is in fact my “treat Hound”. He will do absolutely anything in the world to get a treat, cookie or carrot or anything to eat. If you show him how to do something and he knows you are going to give a treat he will try until he learns it to in fact get that treat. I have had so much fun with him. He will check me for a treat and if I don’t have one he will almost shrug me off with a turned head tossed in the air as if he is saying “I’m done with you, off you go child” .
* The history of the Rocky Mountain Horse from 1890 to the latter part of the 1900s carries little or no documentation and few facts that can be proven beyond the shadow of doubt. Everyone who personally witnessed the breed's beginnings (back to the 1800s) is deceased, and we have been left with only verbal history passed down from generation to generation. Thus, all that can be recorded at this point in time are the stories recollected by living descendants. Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

it is getting really hot here and we ride early morning like 6-10 or 11 am:) it is usually exteremly hot by 12-1 pm I continue to work with Whiskey and every now and then I still put the O ring on him and to keep him sharp. He really does well each time we ride. I am not all that good with all kinds of bits. I have not mastered the bit world-well, probably not a lot of horse things but I am on my journey and heading that way. I can ride Whiskey & Deacon both with just halters on but have never tired bridle-less yet but that is another goal of mine. The more we rode the better Whiskey got at reining. The more miles and trails the easier it got on me and him. I discovered Whiskey loves the water. We can get in a few minutes but I have to move him out or he will try to lie down, but I can take him right back in and then he settles to stand, doesn’t swim yet with me. We are still working toward that. Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

Sorry it's so hot and sticky for you and Dino. Meant to ride this AM, got Cisco up about 9:30, by the time I cleaned hooves and brushed him, I was dripping with sweat. Shelved that idea, just asked him to load a few times and turned him out. Humidity as much as the heat, really miserable today.

Few things about Whiskey: The 1st few times I rode Whiskey my arms were wore out and tired. I was thinking “man what in the world”. He did not and could not Neck rein. He was very hard in the mouth, no flex in his neck but Karla & Tim told me he needed that kind of work. Tim felt he didn’t ride him in collection and so on. He was Tim’s first horse. We would get under the canopy of the trees on the trails and he would do great with my seat aids which I was happy about. That is how I ride him, with my seat and leg aids. I guess we all are supposed to do that RIGHT!!!! I then started planning my next few months of teaching him to neck rein. I just went back to the beginning and put him in an “O” ring snaffle and took it from there. Every day his personality would shine and he entertained Cliff & me with his antics!

hi, I think you and I were blogging Cheryl and Cisco at the same time. yes, im sure Dino is miserable in a sticky heat. we all are, but him more so.
howve things been? glad you're getting some ride time in on him. im still not riding as much as I would like, just seem to always have a bunch of errands to run. im having trouble finding a saddle to fit little Allie for opposite reasons you had trouble finding one for D, lol. she's so narrow and short backed.
are you taking any classes this summer or are you going to take a break? hope you have some down time with the boys. take care, and give Big D a pat for me.

We had a nice weekend and hope you all did as well. Lizzy came over Saturday and rode Rocket and then she gave him the full grooming experience and I did the same with Whiskey. I had a 30 minute short workout for Deacon on Sunday morning then went to Tractor Supply for feed and the grocery store. Every other weekend I am not around a computer so I will phone vote as many as possible, also 1 x a week that I will phone vote :) * Rocky Mountain Horses are slow to mature and do not reach their full size and weight until about five to six years of age. Generally healthy horses, they often live long lives but do have a tendency to be extremely "easy keepers". Care must be taken to keep your Rockies from becoming too overweight, particularly in their later years.* Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

♥ TGIF~No one else is running HOTM so vote Whiskey please! not sure how my weekend will go, I will try riding my home area if Lake Whitney isn’t open. I have several things on the to-do list I may try to tackle…It has been pretty hot after work each day in the lower 90’s so whatever I do will need to be early in the day and late evening! Have a wonderful weekend. ♥

Whinnies, hugs~ I have missed HC and a regular computer to type with instead of my phone. After posting my note on 5/22/15 about my vacation with the horses that afternoon I received an emergency phone call from my oldest sister in Montana about my other sister that has MS. She was in the hospital and was catatonic and non-responsive. They actually thought she wouldn’t pull through. Cliff and I grabbed our stuff and took off that way. Needless to say it was a long drive. Around the middle of South Dakota it got really pretty all the way to Montana. We were in Glasgow about 50 miles from Canada. The wild life I saw was incredible to say the least…what beauty but I can say I could never live that way-way up there! My sister did pull through and is fine now but it sure did scare me. Lizzy and I were going to ride at the lake yesterday but she got there before me and called-she told me to turn around and go home-I’m like WHY? It was shut down due to high water. Storming here this morning then it is to clear off for a week! Have an awesome weekend ☆

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.

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.

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 ♡
