How We Met

When we first went to look at Cutter, she had just had a foal, so we didn't ride her then... But she was so sweet and beautiful, had Smart Little Lena on her papers, and was a great price so we brought her home. The man we bought her from said she was broke, but hadn't been ridden in a year or so. A bit later we just put a saddle on her and she did fine. A few days later I just sat on her as my brother led her around, still she was fine. Then, in one of our pastures, I got on to ride her. As soon as they took off the lead rope and I asked her to walk I could tell she was confused. But she did walk around for a bit, but she kept trying to go to the gate. Then, ignoring my cues, she walked right up to our electric fence and accidentally touched the fence with her nose! She took off for a gallop around the pasture... and I didn't. We soon caught her, and calmed her down. Then, with the electric fence off, I climbed back on. But she must have connected my being on her back with the shock, because our sweet little mare suddenly became a bucking bronco! Her bucking began, and I'm not an experienced rider! The ground rushed up to meet me fast and hard. Cutter continued to buck and run around and I got out of that pasture fast! Although scraped and bruised, I wasn't badly hurt. A week or so later my brother came across an add for a girl who was offering to refresh horses. We called her that day and she came out that afternoon. She was a great rider and did an amazing job with Cutter in only a few weeks! While she was there once, I got on Cutter again, and the change was truly miraculous! Now my entire family rides her, from my mom to my nine year old brother! She's like a different horse; and we all praise the Lord for sending us this sweet little girl!

"Examine me, O Lord, and prove me; try my reins and my heart." Psalm 26:2

Hubby, Mike, has been working the gardens up for the past few weeks. Got the fence up and yesterday afternoon planted root crops, like potatoes, carrot,....4 packages, by order of the horses, beets, radishes, and about dozen small tomatoes. Good thing we covered them, because temps were 29 and frost everywhere this morning. Tried to load pictures of the turtles and there new home....they are not in it yet, well, at least not all day, because it is too cold yet. But pictures would not load, perhaps too big. I will work on it tonight.

any trail riding this weekend? sounds like you have the perfect spot for horse and human at your current address.
we finally had some good rain yesterday and early this morning, almost 2 inches, yay! we really needed it. the riding ring is too soupy to ride in today, but im not complaining. Allie could use a few days break anyway.
well, hope you're having a great weekend.

I will post the pictures of the two turtles on Kisses page if I find some time today. The water in the pond was super cold for them, and a shaded area. Pen is about 5ft tall, 6 w/8-10 feet long. I did replant the iris, added Stella O Day, and threw in some flower seeds. It already had hosas, Snow on the Mt, and another small ground cover plant, now all we need is warm weather so they can stay out in their new home. Temps were barely 40 when I came in from feeding.
Pickles is really starting to get better, let me walk him all the way to the pasture today, even if everyone else had run ahead of him, near the gate, he started to get antsy, so I walked him the other way, and then back to the gate. He is still so fuzzy with baby fur.

So I could not keep sending votes, but I lost the links.
Was busy digging a hole to put in the plastic pond for the turtles, have to be near a plug in, so that means next to the house. Hubby, finished digging it this morning. Have a long cage big enough to walk in, to put over the top and still have aout 5-6 feet so they can crawl out of the water. I sure hope my flowers and plants grow like I picture them in my mind. We had snow/sleet/rain from last evening to this morning. So spring must be hiding again.

Thursday is a repeat from yesterday. Rainy, cold weather, but it did not have a high of 20's as predicted, it was in the 40's. But we still have about 3 more days of rain, so hopefully it does not get too cold. We have enough mud for a long spring. It seems all I can get done is cleaning inside. Sorting out magazines for the 4-H club, and finding alot of other things, I was suppose to remember where I put it.

Well, do you need a cat named Angel, who it seems loves to go up the tallest trees, without the foggiest idea how to get back down, other than to meow to me, in a pitiful voice. This time was not as high up and a few branches, but standing on the top of a 15 ft ladder, trying to drag him off his perch on the next branch, is very hard, when he was again digging in with all 8 feet and claws. But we made it, is only a few scratches to my hands and face, one too near my eye, but next time will put on goggles. Note: It says "next" time.

Weather looks to be nice today, it's nice, at the same time cool and wet. I want to start brushing Mistic, because she has such thick hair, and has been rubbing one side of her neck on boards, and it looks like she has dandruff or dry skin or lice or ??? She needs a good bath.

On day, 22 I woke up to little peepers. Still hatching, and I can only look in tiny holes, to see what is inside. Friday, night, I will open up the incubator, to take them out. Hopefully, I can sell a few this year to help pay for the feed. If not, I can always use more eggs, to trade for other things. I guess, if you "have to" have a bad habit, horses, ponies and chickens aren't too bad of ones. Oh, yes, can forget the rabbits. Nice out, but lots of cool air with moisture. Makes it feel very wet and damp.

Today, it is not so warm, cool with alot of moisture in the air. Found some crocus blooming next to the house and also a nightcrawler, (angleworms), so signs of spring are coming. Snow is nearly gone, but lots of water.

Yesterday was so nice, clean the little ones pen most of the afternoon, hauled out 9 wheelbarrow full, across the driveway and then across the lawn, to where I want to make a new flowerbed.....like I do not have enough of them, and worked until my wheelbarrow and broken hand manure fork started complaining they were getting tired. By then it was time to bring in the clothes I washed and hung outside, usually I dry them inside on one of those old wooden racks, like the old Grandmas use to use. Today is warm too, yesterday I seen the temps up to nearly 60, but now it will rain and very foggy out. Not alot of snow left, but plenty of water, which I love walking threw.....must be the kid in me, or just because my boots do not leak yet.

Hope this helps everyone to understand, why HC is having troubles. I wrote to HI and received this back....
Sorry about that. The Horse of the Day function went down when they moved our servers a couple of weeks ago, and our IT department is working on it. Unfortunately, it runs on older technology and it's apparently not just a quick fix, but know that it is on our radar and they are looking for a solution. I'll let them know about the e-cards, as well.

I bet the mare is beautiful. Glad she's coming along nicely. How are the kids doing? Are you enjoying them?
We too have had beautiful, spring-like weather the last few days. I see a lot of plants on the verge of budding out. It always amazes me how fast spring comes on, almost overnight. I've been riding BJ and Allie this weekend and really enjoying them.
Well, better get back to work. Hope your week is off to a good start.

Mother Nature must have thought today is April Fool's Day. Some places in Wisconsin were up to 60 yesterday, (we got up to 45-50 range) and today will be down to 8-18, depending where you live. Even some places are having winter storm warnings. Wind is just terrible, had to chase down a bucket, I put down when I went into the chicken coop, it ended up across the lawn, and over the field, into the ditches, and the brush helped me catch it. Silly, bucket, thought it could just run away and really make it.

Good Morning vote from Whisper and the little herd. Was going to send everyone a apple with the vote, but Whisper somehow wanted to test them to make sure they were good, and she is still sampling them......:) They way she is nodding her head and smacking her lips, she must have found them good.

Happy Sunday to you. It's nice outside, snow is melting, but a whole day of rain on Friday, has made alot of ice too. I moved the guinea hens outside to the pheasant pen, because it has a closed top. It will be warm enough in the house for them. It sure is nice not to hear them so much. I did keep the white and some gray ones inside, because the two groups do not get along so good yet. I wish there was a better way to tell the females from males, they both look alike, I know they both make a different sound, but with 27 of them, who is the one you hear.

Something is wrong with HC this morning. First I was all finished except for the quiz, and I happened to check My Account, and not was recorded, but visiting HC.

I agree, it was very nice that Horse Illustrator helped me get the helmet. I will also get my niece a two year subscription to HI, I get it myself, but it is second hand, and a month late...I share with another family. Weather is good to complain about, because by the time we finish complaining, it already has changed. Whisper and the little herd, are use to this type of cold, they do not seem to mind at all. I see Whisper running and playing all the time. Water is always fresh and not frozen, well, sometimes over night it does freeze in the smaller buckets for the ponies.

dropping off a quick sunday night vote. we just got back from watching the movie War Room at church, and it was great.
it was sunny today but really windy and still muddy, so i didnt ride, but i did trim Gracie's feet and work BJ. he's getting so good at groundwork with all his therapy we're doing. i'll have to come up with new exercises to keep his attention. what are some of your favorites?

Here is a very cold vote from Whisper and the little herd. Weatherman did not get it right...again, was suppose to be 5 below, and it was 14 below when I got up at 6, most likely dropped a bit later as the sun got up. Clippers and Mistic were all frosty, and excited to get their grain. Water buckets were froze solid. Pickles and Paisley stay inside at night, so their pail was not as bad. I bring hot water out each morning to thaw out any ice.

Tuesday Morning Votes
Brrr, it's cold this morning. Darby and Copper both have their blankets on. And they'll keep warm by eating hay and their feed. I wasn't on HC to blog and vote all my buddies for a few days. Had a good Christmas. We rode the boys on our land. Darby's foot is looking really good. I applies alu-shield to protect it from all this icky mud. Will clean it out and take a better look at it today. Wind has been harsh, blowing hard and cold. Had some hail a few days ago, didn't last too long. It's so saturated out here, gonna be a while before anything dries out. Hope you have a great day! Love Lindsay & Darby

hope you're settling in well and enjoying having the girls in your back yard again. i bet thats a treat.
we had a busy day today. bought another round bale, took my daughter and niece Christmas shopping, homeschooled, horse time, and watched one of our favorite movies after supper, Rise of the Guardians. i did some groundwork for BJs first physical therapy session. he was kinda clumsy. hope that gets better over time. Kathryn rode Allie and it's fun to watch someone else ride your horse to see what they look like. Allie is relaxing a bit more and also pulling away from that one fence line closest to the barn. yay!
well, hope you have a good night and i'll talk tomorrow.

Guess I'll have to blog in the AM instead of late afternoon, IN just doesn't want to work then. Got everyone groomed yesterday, dewormed (took nearly and hour to do Nugget, then she spit a bit of it out, so used what was left over from Bo's tube). Silly mare. Got Nugget and Cisco de-burred, saw this AM I get to do that again today. Also got the inside of Bo's blanket washed. Today is bucket and water tub cleaning, will do groundwork with Jazz and Cisco, and maybe Nugget.

Happy Sunday!!!
Leaving cold Sunday morning votes. Skies are really pretty this morning, as the sun is rising. Pink, mostly, but what a work of art? Darby got all muddy again, last night I saw him and... I just gotta say I've got some work to do today. Still no riding, still wet and gross out. In the horse pasture there are so many holes, from all the hoof prints. So far we've gotten 118 votes. Thank you all, it means so much!



I'll tell you all a little bit about Darby's past... of what I know. Once the lady arrived at our place she told us about Darby. She said she rescued him from this lady who rode and did english with him. I'm not sure if she even rode him western. Amy (the lady we bought him from) said he was skin and bones. That made me really sad. Amy said the lady didn't abuse him but she didn't feed him. Amy owned Darby for a year (i think) and she slowly got him to a good weight. You know, it takes a long time to put weight on a horse. Darby is always rushing and pushy around his food, so maybe that's why he is. He's afraid he wont get enough. Amy said he would be a great barrel horse, but actually he's more of an english horse. I know Amy said he was 12 years old, but the vet told us he is 17-19. I went with the younger, of course. I'm so glad to have my boy, he's such a blessing. Love to all*
