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!

Everyone's prayers must be working, because surgery went well. So I want to Thank Everyone!! My son has spent more time in the hospitals and clinics, than all of us put together. When he had his transplants they told us 2 weeks, 3 at the most, well he was there from Feb. 24th until the end of July, and then out a few days and back in for nearly another 3 mts. He had a infection "someplace", I figured right where his home dialysis tubes when into his stomach, but that is the only place they did not check, since it is suppose to be mainly fatty tissues.

Surgery went good, seen some pictures he sent me, foot and toes looked like a big balloon with digits. He said his hip hurts him very bad. I sure hope the stints work, because other wise he will loose his foot, with his toes always being infected. They did remove one toe, about 5 yrs ago, since it was being forced way out of place. Yrs ago, he was in a 4-wheeler accident, and drs. said his foot was not broke, and I kept telling them something was wrong with it, well, after him walking on it for nearly 2 weeks, yep, it was broke and they had to go in threw the top of his foot, so his whole foot is litterly smashed down with 2 long scars about 6 inch long, I am sure that is why he has issues now.

Going to be a hot, mucky day, but weather man is calling for bad thunderstorms, for our county and north of us. Mike has to take our son Mike, in for surgery this morning, so since it is nearly a 2 hour drive, he left at 5:30 this morning. My son, needs to have a stint put behind his knee, because his toes are turning black (spot) from lack of blood. Being a diabetic all those yrs has destroyed his blood vessels. If you have extra prayers send them his way. He has already lost his other leg up to his knee about 10 yrs ago.

Very humid today, still calling for rain, but high temps too. At least 84 now, but there is a nice breeze too. Had to run to get a part for the tractor, so sort of late for me, about 11 now. We have about 15-16 acres of hay, only cut about half of it down and had a guy round bale it. Going to try out a small sq. baler to put up the hay from new seeding. We did not want to take the chance of getting it down, then get rained on because it is thick. Trouble is no barn the type where you had a hay mount like the old barns. Can store some inside side the shed, but not more than a 150.

love the verse you tacked on to your last blog- we need that in these unsettled days.
sounds like Cutter is an english horse at heart, or else a barrel horse. i like cruising around slowly too, nice and relaxed. a fast horse does take some getting used to. Allie walks and trots a lot faster than the QHs do too, but that'll be nice out on the trails, it we ever get out to the trails. one day.
we were blessed with almost 2 inches of rain yesterday. the ground is a bit slick today, and of course it's hot and humid, so may not ride today. may just focus on chores and errands so i can ride thur morning.
hope you are having a great tuesday. take care.

Come visit me, Allie & BJ and his mom,Gracie.

Whisper, Willow, and the little herd are sending you a vote. Hay was cut yesterday, all except where we planted new seeding. Because that will take longer to dry, and its calling for rain again. Before, the weather station said rain on Thursday, then changed it Wednesday. So we left that part, going to small bale it, then try to figure out where to store it.

Good Morning vote from Whisper, Willow, and the little herd. "Today" I take it all back about Pickles being a "problem child", he was so good, I guess him having to be in the other pen, made him be on his best behavior. So, he got staked outside of the pen, (with Mistit) as a treat. Let me put his halter on and gave him a treat, and he followed me out, without tugging, did a few whoa, and "kissing" to step up. We'll see what the day brings with him.

Your goats are so cute. I wished the two I had, would have worked the way I wanted them to. Maybe someday, when I have less critters around here, but until animals stop needing homes, I do not see that happening. Besides they keep me out of trouble....well, now that is debatable, with the Banker. hee, hee.

Sorry, I did not get you leave everyone a vote lately. Usually, I figure, in the evening I will have more time, which means I never have more time after supper. I have such issues with the "pop-ups" and it takes me forever to finish. Late last night the white sow, (pig) decided its time to make a nest. So of course she picks the deepest hole in her pen, not under her lean to, where there is shelter, and clean, started carrying the grass I was picking for her and beet tops to line the nest. I gave her hay so she would stop trying to rip the traps off the lean to. Well, this morning no babies yet, still pushing, first one sometimes is born stillborn, and plugging the way. Mother Pigs are not something like a dog or cat and go sit with them, they will eat there young, if they get mad or bother, specially since we did not raise them. I have been going into the pen and letting them get use to me "bothering" them. Normal, if she does what my pigs we had before, they lay for about 3 days until the baby pigs are strong enough to get out of the way when MaMa lays back down, or she will squash them. But tomorrow is calling for rain, and that hole will fill up with water, so we went out and put in a few more steel pole and built her a tent.

I had another good ride on Allie yesterday and then trimmed Cinni's feet. Madison and I got to get in the pool right at the end of the day, which was fun too.
I'll be off line over the weekend again, going to visit my folks.

Quick voting this morning again. Have to run to get car parts, to fix brakes. Then tomorrow, a trip to Eau Claire, to help out grandson with some of his schooling things. I am sure money is the biggest part, so we will put his name on a account, to help pay his rent, until he can find a job, to work around his school hours.

Yes, we had light frost yesterday morning. We have had frost in nearly ever month, once on the 4th of July, we had to leave the park early to go cover the garden, and sit with blankets on us, as we watched the local parade. No, baby yet. A week ago, the vet said it would be at least a week to 10 days yet. The former owner, was so positive on her breeding dates. It was in July, that Mistit hurt her stifle joint. She does not seem uncomfortable, but sometimes I see her tail switching back and forth, or looking at her belly. Yesterday, she was rolling a few times. Pickles, now is a different story. He did not seem sore after the second or third day. But, he is back to being "catch me if you can" attitude. Today, I put him in the pen, and lead him back and forth to the pasture, of course he wants to run, but I zig zag back and forth, to make him slow down, but then here comes the goats, under the fence,running straight to us, and Pickles took off. Well, another bad habit I just taught him.

I keep Mistit in the pen inside each night, and because Clippers, and Pickles got gelded, and of course rain ever since Thursday, they got to stay in the back of the barn where the hay is.....and this morning it is a MESS....big time. They somehow got one of the totes open, threw everything around, mostly unfinished craft items, which I work on in "spare time". Plus went into the barrel whee I keep empty feed bags, and it looks like they had fun with that, by the looks of 50 white bags all over. Pulled down all the halters and lead ropes, and told me what they think of them, by pooping on them. When I ask who made the mess....both boys just looked at Paisley, and told me they were too sore to even think of helping her. Neither were limping, but did not want me to look by moving their tails to the side. Just feed me was their attitude. Kids!!!

No baby yet, talk to the woman, and she said Mistit could go 10 days over her last breeding date. But the goat, Zero, cry so much when I have to stake him out, so I got him a little friend, now I have two of them crying. Hatched out 8 of the 12 pheasant eggs, they are so tiny. About 15 guinea keets, and I sold 10 already, but that 40 dollars will go right back into feed. Gelding is tomorrow, so have to clean up a bit "again". Just hay and stuff the goats seem to like to knock down.

Hope your weekend was great for everyone. Going to rain again today, so have to hurry and pick up my Mom grass clippings for bedding. Once it gets wet, it will mold. I guess, I recyle everything. Guineas and pheasant hatched out...not too good of a rate on the guineas. 15 out 36 eggs, but these were the first of the season, most were being lain when there was snow on the ground.

My sister who lives nearly 3 hours away, called last night and said she was coming up for the 4-H swap animal meet about 20 miles from me. she does try to support the 4-H swaps, and since this is their 1st, and she was helping the leader, sort of felt she had to come. I took all my chicks there and made over 100 dollars, hopefully it will be enough with what I am been saving to get Clippers gelded. Besides had a good time.

Between getting the goat, a wether, who must think I am his Mom, all he says is MaMaMama....smile emoticon And the guinea pig, named Raisin. and I do not have his pen/cage ready yet. Guinea hens that do not want to get along with each other, and two turtles that need to go outside, but with our temps still in the 20's in the morning, I do not want to take the chance on them getting too cold. All 22 of my tomato plants froze, even with being covered. And the little ponies (3) young ones ran right threw the electric fence this morning, I think they are afraid of the goat, who is still in the shed. I guess, everything sounds normal here.......wink emoticon

shoot, did i miss Cutter's HOTD? congratulations to her!!! it's always fun to see friends' horses in the spotlight.
glad she's settling down and not as worried. yes, it was a good thing God was watching out for them and led them to a place they would be safe until you were able to get them.
that's great that you had a good bareback ride. i rode BJ bareback yesterday too and he's gotten SO slow, i guess between his heaves and the residual of the EPM. it makes for a good bareback ride, but i keep trying to ride ahead of him and i have to make myself sit and wait on him. after riding him, i sat on Allie bareback and just flexed her head for a few minutes. she's moving sounder so maybe i'll try to ride her today. we're just going to go slowly and hope she doesnt get a wild hair and decide to buck.
well, hope you have a great friday. take care.

Sadie was a good girl, Thursday. She did give the farrier some attitude. He rubbed her neck and said she's a spoiled brat. She is. She took her shot without a problem and didn't fight the deworming. She's wearing her new fly mask, too. She and Austin played chase. She had that tail curled. Lol. So funny. Have a great weekend. I have extra hours this weekend, too. Will be on to vote, as much as possible. Love and a vote.

Alright, Cutter, was it you or Dolly that made that first move to get out?? You are safer at home.
Well, those 2 nice days we had, must have been our summer. Since last week, our morning temps are in the 30's, now they are talking "winter mix" for this week, that means snow/rain. Our outdoor stove, is being worked on, so no heat or hot water since last Thursday. Grass is growing, and steers (4 of them) finally got to go out on a small pasture. Whisper and the little ones have been going out a bit everyday, but mostly weeds and not a good pasture. We want them to eat it down, then spray all the weeds and disk a bit, and reseed.

A "late" Happy Mother's Day to you, even if you are only the mother of 4 legged ones.
Busy weekend....hatched out 42 out of 48 eggs, for me that is great. Sold 8 guinea hens on Saturday and 15 chicks, but out poor outdoor stove is taking all that money to fit it. Now the best new, Pickles finally progress to a point that he can have his halter OFF. Does not run away, and no long afraid of hand movements....sometimes, he moves his head, but not his feet. Been following me around, like I am his best friend. Negative side of no halter, is....I can not tell Pickles and Clippers apart(from just their heads), without looking at their feet. :)

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.

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.
