A BEAUTIFUL SERVICE...
It was an absolutely fabulous service. We were late starting because they had trouble getting everyone into the funeral home. Jackie's bell ringers, rang us(the family) to our seats, it was beautiful. some of Jackie's favorite music was played while they tried to get everyone seated. 3 different ministers briefly spoke and we prayed.. Jackie's son in law gave a wonderful speech, we all laughed right out loud, we all cried a bit and then 2 of her grandchildren spoke, they were just amazing, what nice kids. Adam played Amazing Grace on his bagpipes, so lovely. The bell ringers rang us all out and we went for lunch at a hall, it was a huge group of people all for Jackie, it was wonderful to see all her nieces and nephews there, Trevor came with some of the boys from London, one of the nieces came from BC and some cousins came from Scotland and North Carolina and California. There is a huge hole in that community and in the hearts of us who loved her, she is safe now, we left a vote, Love Donna Lee

THANKS FOR THE PRAYERS, IT HELPS A LOT.....
Today will be the tough one, Jackie's grandson Adam wants to play his bagpipes at the service, Amazing Grace, she was so proud of her family. Jackie was in a Bell Ringer group and they want to do something at the service as well, she was a very active member of her community and visitation was wonderful, people were lined up outside the building to get in to see her family, I'm going to need lots of tissues today....she will be missed, We left a vote, Love Donna Lee

Glad you had a waddle and splash around the pasture bareback. Sounds like Dee was in a mellow mood.
I'm having trouble visualizing your films. Are they a story that involves things that are in your "room" in your studio? Like the rocking chair you're sitting in is also in the film?
Have a rainy Friday here and need to get off to work. Hope you have a good Friday.

SAD NEWS TO SHARE....
David's sister, Jackie has lost her battle with cancer. She was a 5 year breast cancer survivor and this dreadful disease returned this fall, after lots of tests etc. it was determined to be in her liver, gall bladder and ovaries it was inoperable, in early December they gave her 3-6 months, she died on Sunday afternoon, with her family close by. Jackie spent her entire life giving to others, we called her Saint Jackie, she will be missed. Love Donna Lee

Glad you got a ride in, even if just a "waddle". How do you get on him bareback? Our place looks like a swamp. Horses got fed when they came up (about 2 hours late), they would rather stay in their cozy pasture shed than come up in the rain, that's fine with me. If they are up I will go out and feed, even if it's rainy.

hows your back feeling? sure hope it's letting you get around and do what you want. backs will complain given the slightest excuse.
rode yesterday out in the field, and my niece and i hope to haul out to the trails today if she doesnt have too much homework. rain, etc supposed to move back in, but im back at work, so that works out. sometimes, it's only nice when i work and rainy on my days off. that gets old fast.
well, hope you have a good wed. i saw where you specialize in sculpture. that's cool. what kind is your favorite to do?

Yep, our weather is fixing to get bad for a few days. Major chance of rain tomorrow and Thurs, then cooler, but back in the 70's midweek. Very strange weather for us for Jan. Great ride today, I think I'm really onto something doing the circle driving first. He popped in one buck during lunging, but other than that I've had more exciting rides on merry-go-round horses!

you're too funny. a cup of tea and a hobnob should get you a live in handy man. seems there ought to be such a person at uni somewhere.
i would hate to be in Big Dee's way when he spooks. i can kind of push Allie off me, but not a horse like Dee. i hope he remembers his lessons when it's nice and you can ride again. horses have amazing memories, ive found. its just the confidence and fitness that may be lost over time off.
our nice weather is supposed to end in a return of cold and wet by thur. ugh. hope you have a good tue, and yes, dont slip and fall on the ice with your back already hurting. that would be bad. take care.

Back in the saddle, finally...
Yep, the applesauce works a treat. I get them up, do 2-3 syringes full of applesauce for a day or 2, then when it's time to deworm no problems, follow up with a dose of the "good stuff". Some people use honey or molasses, but mine seem to prefer applesauce. Good ride on Cisco today, wasn't sure how he'd do after nearly 2 months off, but he was good. Found out yesterday he does better if I circle drive before lunging. He did hike his butt a couple of times today, just did one-rein stops and he was fine after that.

Haha, I could stand a handy man too. Only so much an arthritic old lady can do and soooo much that needs doing. I guess if we had the money to pay one, but o well.
Yes, there wasn't hardly any diversity of age when I went to uni and I missed it terribly. Life is so one sided when everyone is within 10 or less years of each other.
Sorry your weather is yucky. We had a really nice weekend, though yesterday was very windy and even BJ spooked a few times. Hang on, spring is on its way.
Hope your back feels better soon. Take it easy and hope you have a good Monday.

Sorry about your back. Hoping you don't lose to much land, at least keep enough for the horses. I'll send you my weather if you'll send me cooler temps in the summer! Another lovely 70 degree day. Worked Meg & Cisco (he was a gem), dewormed both of them. Had a problem with deworming Cisco, I use an old syringe and give them a few doses of applesauce before the dewormer, had to pry Cisco's mouth open, he was trying to eat the syringe. Silly horse!

Will your back stay messed up till spring? Gosh, I hope not! Yes, we are really enjoying blue skies for a few days. Even the animals are like, "ahhhhh". Rode BJ for a lazy relaxing ride in the field yesterday. The university cows up the road are calving this month, so BJ had to stop and stare at all the extra cows and activity out there. Those new calves are so adorable.
Well, glad you're at least a bit drier. Hope you can enjoy some time outside. Have a good Sunday.
PS. My son is 21. He did do an album cover for a local band, and it turned out great.

Summer in the midst of winter...
70 today. Should be nice thru Weds, then cooler temps and rain. Felt really nice to be out in just a T-shirt this afternoon. Cleaned up Meg and Cisco, did a little groundwork. Will clean up Nugget tomorrow, and then hoping to ride or at least do groundwork with Cisco under saddle. No, it's our place, we have 45 acres. It's not really an arena, just a 200 by 200' paddock that I've set up obstacles in, but makes a nice smaller place to ride in.

I did groundwork with Allie and BJ again yesterday, and rode BJ just a little. The morning started out foggy and cloudy but the sun finally broke through and we saw actual blue sky. Beautiful.
Well, hope you feel better soon and have a good weekend.

Sculpture sounds cool. Am finally drying out, nice day with lots of sun. Will be able to separate Nugget at least for the next few days so won't have to stand guard duty. Don't like to feed Meg and Cisco in the my riding area, we're on clay and they tear it up too much when it's muddy. Will be enjoying lots of horsey time!

We've not had happy weather either, but I guess that's to be expected during the winter. I was able to ride BJ a bit yesterday despite the dreariness of the day, and he was amazing. We're supposed to see sunshine today, and let me tell you, I'm looking forward to it.
That's cool you're studying arts at uni. My son can draw really really well and can vary his style to suite whatever he's doing. I wish he would go to school to further develop his skill, but he won't so far. I hope this semester goes smoothly for you. It is hard to squeeze in farm chores when you have a job or school also. Most farms could use a full time person or two just to maintain them.
Well, hope you have a good Friday.

Sorry about the winds. Had to change feed, and Nugget won't eat the new feed, so had to put her back on the old feed and Cisco loves it. So now I'm standing guard at her feed bucket. When it dries out I can separate them. Fine arts sounds fun, what is your specialty?

Hoping the winds are dying down. What are studying at Uni? One more day of cold, then warming up to the 50-60's starting Sat. Hope Cisco doesn't spook when he sees the saddle, LOL. Having to stand guard on Nugget's feed, she won't eat the new stuff and Cisco wants what she has. Barely made it out in time this AM, he grabbed a bite or 2 before I chased him back to his bucket.

Its raw here too, cold windy and damp. Ugh. My ears hurt a little after feeding last night also. Ate supper and went straight to bed. The horses don't seem to mind-they keep playing and snorting like they feel good.
Nothing new here, just working and wet weather. Hope you have a good wed.

Gale force winds DO NOT sound like fun. I only hay 3x a day if the temps don't get much above freezing. If we have a stretch of really bad weather, will put out a round bale for them, but prefer to strip it off and feed that way. 3 more chilly days/nights, then warming up to 40-60's for a week or so. Looking forward to doing something with the horses besides feeding them!

Rain and more rain. We need it and I’m happy it didn’t freeze here. I am having riding withdrawals at this point though. I need my saddle time for sure. The herd is a muddy messy to the MAX~total MUDSTANGS plus a little more mud. If it is not raining after work I will try and get pictures and post on FB, you will enjoy them I’m sure, have a wonderful Sunday ✞

NO SHOES< FOR NOW...
I have always thought that it is a good idea to give the feet a rest and not be shod full time. But with Charlie's many hoof issues, what is a girl to do? Now that we have a good layer of snow, Charlie is doing well, so after talking with Greg and Dr. C, we decided to leave him alone for now, if he turns up sore back on they go, and they have to go back early in the spring, I'm OK with this. We left a somewhat warmer -7 vote, Love Donna Lee

It has been a rough week, wicked weather, snow and blowing snow. A couple of pretty scary drives to work. Temp this morning is sitting at -15, that is quite a bit warmer than it has been, wind chill feels like -30. My guys have been in for 3 days, I'm going to try to get them out for a bit this morning.

Cisco is the only horse I've ever had that has "off" days. Sounds like your little herd was feeling spunky. Felt warmer this AM at 17 than it did yesterday at 40 with all the wind. Extra hay for everyone, had to break ice in the calves water tub, but the deicer was doing its job in the horses. Thankfully, the rain is out of forecast the next few days, just cold.

☆ What can I say…it is EXTREMELY cold out. I went out to the barn after work and fed the herd. I stayed and watch them finish their buckets. I just couldn’t stay out much longer. They are nice and warm in the barn with the wind blocked from them. I know all of us are experiencing this so I know you know what I mean :) I am off work tomorrow but I do not foresee me getting to ride or do anything horsey except feeding time.

So sorry Bo has to stay up. I'm sure neither horse is happy about that. Gotta take care of those feet though. My mini likes to eat acorns, which also can make her laminitis flair up, so her turn out time is limited too, and she's not happy about it either.
I was able to ride BJ yesterday for the first ride of the year. Even though its too muddy to do a lot, it was wonderful to be on again.

Good Morning all, we left a vote. Greg came yesterday and did trims, we decided to pull Charlie's shoes for the winter, David is all mad 'cause he says I'm just being tight fisted, Charlie has such sensitive feet and the ground is hard and lumpy right now, as soon as we get some snow cover he will be OK, in the meantime I just have to watch him walk like hs has two broken legs, he is soooo dramatic. He is doing OK no his new feed program, we had a weather change and that is what has made him a bit grumpy the past couple of days.
