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!

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. Whisper and the little herd are sending you a vote.

hope 2016 is off to a good start and you're getting some horse time in already.
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?
well, off to bed. hope you had a great weekend and some horse time.

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*

Glad you are back on and have an awesome new place. Left votes for both. Meg had to be euthanized in July - she broke her hind leg, have no idea how. Since then, have adopted two elderly mares from a horse rescue and am working at getting them rehabbed.

Yaaaay...finally got to ride two days in a row!! My husband rode Ace on Sunday and I rode on Monday and Tuesday. I was so excited and wanted to share with HC and I couldn't log on the past few days. What's up with that? Anyway I really enjoyed my rides. I posted six photos below (3 from each day). We are having some beautiful weather here, hope it holds out. Have a great weekend!

Galloping by with a early Monday morning vote! Well, I've got good news... Weather shows cooler temps coming in this Wednesday! I'm so happy, I bet Darby will enjoy the cooler fall-like weather as well. Me and my sister rode our horses yesterday morning. English tack! They did good. But Darby threw some fits and bucked as we were loping. But I made him work through his fuss. He also got a bath yesterday, I don't think he rolled afterward. Thank goodness! I've been busy these past few days. Hope all is well with you! Have a great beginning of the week! Best wishes, love to all!!!!!!!!!!

Dropping by with an early morning vote. Darby is doing great, he loves all the grass in our pasture. Him and Copper have six acres, with trees and a pond. Hope all is well, one more day and it's September! The weekend was busier than usual, didn't have a chance to ride. But today or tomorrow I will. I think Darby likes the break. Last time I rode we did barrels. He lopes great, but his turns aren't the tightest. But we'll work on it. Other than that he's pretty good. But he still loves to jump. He actually pulls the bit to line up and jump. It's too funny. But I'm glad I found something he enjoys. Well have a blessed Monday, love always and a click on your horseshoe!!!

Trotting by with a click on your horseshoe. Slowly but surely the weather is getting cooler, a week ago it was 106, now it's 95. The heat down here in Texas is brutal. Although the forecast shows rain for today and tomorrow. Sure hope we get some, it's unbelievable dry, lots of cracks in the ground. This morning I'm going to ride Darbs, our ride Saturday morning was a great lesson. He didn't act up really, we loped both sides and I got him going a little faster. It was great! Hope all is well, get some horsey time. Love always and best wishes!

Susie made August HOTM...yip yip hooray!! We will definitely celebrate with the herd. I told my husband Susie gets to do whatever she wants today because she is Queen. Thanks so much HC friends for all your votes and support. We could not have done it without you. Susie is happy to be your Top Horse for this month. I look forward to sharing more of Susie's escapades with our HC friends...because you know there will be more. lol

As you know, Susie survived all her tragic incidents and accidents. Through it all she has been a real trooper. She is the biggest horse in the pasture, but she allows the other horses to boss her around. She does anything you ask of her. She is such a sweet and playful mare. I call Susie my “million dollar” horse. One because of all the time, effort and expense we have invested in her, but the second and main reason is because nobody has enough money to buy Susie. She is worth the world to me. She has found her forever home. She will live here at our pasture for as long as she is alive and she will be laid to rest next to dear sweet Lollipop, when her time ends. She has touched my heart in a way that I can’t explain. I hope she has touched yours in some way through her story. The End.~~~~
Our HOTM run has come to an end. I have enjoyed sharing Susie’s story with you. Thanks to all my HC friends for your support. (Left a big thank you vote)

November 1st Susie is home and once again she is confined to the barn. We are having to change her bandages every 3 to 5 days. This is getting to be a task. Also having to clean out the barn everyday, with her many piles of manure and wet areas. lol Susie was getting bored being confined, away from the herd. So on November 16th, my husband decided to let Susie out of the barn and put her in a small pen area. Well you know Susie…she was not content to be outside, she wanted to be with the herd. So she tried to jump the fence and managed to get her leg caught in the square fencing. Yes, it was her left rear leg. We brought her in, doctored her leg and bandaged it up. She had completely messed up the grafting process. She remained in the barn another 10 days. At this point the wound had pretty much healed but the hair had not regrown. We knew that this was the best we could hope for, so we removed her bandage and set her free.

In answer to the question as to what caused the proliferative lesion, not really sure. Not sure why she got pythium and the other horses at the same pasture didn't. They did say that her immune system could have played a part. The birth of her foal could have weakened her immune system and made her more susceptible to diseases. After all of this we did put her on a supplement for her immune system called Tri-Mune.~~~

The grafting process consisted of taking punch grafts from Susie’s left side of her neck underneath her mane. They took a total of 22 punch grafts and implanted them into the wound bed. Her leg was bandaged and they would wait five days before the bandage could be removed. Susie remained at LSU until October 31st. Halloween day she retuned home after a total of 17 days. Now the fun begins! lol (A click on the horseshoe)
