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

Oh yeah, goats are escape artists, for sure, and manage to get into all kinds of trouble. But they're too cute to get mad at.
Glad you got a little ride in. Yeah, with 2 horses and siblings, you can make a regular game out of broom ball. BJ found my old broom yesterday and about destroyed it chewing on it, lol.
Allie is coming along. I finally took the roundpen down last night, so this morning will be her first day in the bigger space, well, at least in a while. I'm hoping she'll lope calmly out of the roundpen now, but we'll see.
Well, better get the day going. Hope you have a great wednesday.

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

Not sure about the sale today....want to go, but anytime I take a day off, the fairies seem to take one too. Yesterday, I noticed the spiders started decorating for Halloween, spider webs in every room. The dust bunnies came out and really multiply, and Sadies's mess under the table got bigger. She seems to think, all cardboard boxes need to be tore into 1 inch x 1 inches or smaller.
Ponies did wonderful getting into the trailer, but I felt like a "Judes goat" leading them in. But their new home is so nice. They will have their own stalls, but for now the have a small pen, which will go into a bigger pasture, and 3 kids to love them. I brought everything I could think of that they might need, treats, apples, carrots, brushes, combs, extra halters, 3 new lead ropes, hoof pick, a few stuffed horses, books on ponies, and a few other horsey things. They showed us the other barn, where they had ducks and chickens, everything was so clean, and no mud. I think the ponies will love it there. But Mistit is still calling for them. So that part is so sad for me. I spent extra time with her last night after we got home.

I guess I love all my horses and ponies toooooo much, because them having a new home is more important than making money off them. I very seldom, sell for money, this time I am doing a trade(s) for rifle/gun. I have seen the little hobby farm, and can see the love the father has built into his barn and how he treats his other animals.
I take in horses/ponies that need a home, because they in need of help. Usually, they are just babies, and just are not taught anything, afraid and not handled. After, I work with them, and make them ready for their new home, I start looking for someone who wants what they have to give. Pickles, I really thought I would want to keep, but he turned out better than what I thought he could.
Mike has to rewire the horse trailer, since the little pigs, would play under it, and must have created a short. Trouble is, with his artificial knees, he can not get down on the ground....well, he can, but then can not get back up. Waiting for the neighbor boy to come over and help him out.

Yep, garden is muddy too, so all the tomatoes and carrots are really caked with "good old Wisconsin heavy clay". As if I do not have enough to can, went and picked 2 full 5 gal buckets of apples. Have one all ready peeled and frozen, everyone enjoyed the peels and small apples last.
Mikey has dr appointment(s) today, but one of his friends is off work and will drive. But we will be going to Ladysmith to get some of the specials at the grocery store. Need flour to make apple crisps and pies, and brown sugar. Fall is coming too fast, nights are very cool, and with the rain, everything is wet...and muddy.

As I type, I hope you can hear Mother Nature being a naughty, naughty lady. BIG LOUD thunders, and what a fireworks display...never mind the down pour. My tulips, I planted where I took out the turtle pond "really" are getting the soaking they needed....might decide to bloom before winter. It started before 4 this morning and suppose to continue all week, I hope not this hard. Let everyone one just as it got light, because the rain had stopped. I guess chickens knew more than I did, because they just stayed in the coop, and the ones in the shed did not want to go outside either. Had a good visit with my sister at Mom's, she comes for the Hawkins parade each yr, by herself, and picks up my other sister, who hates to drive because she lost her one eye at 8 yrs old. Up until last yr she had a fake eye, but because of a infection it ate up some of the support of the fake eye, and now has to wait until everything clears up. That and her insurance does not want to pay anything, because the only place she can go is out of network. My sister will take 5 of the baby guinea hens to a friend who wanted some, and I told him I would make sure he got them. I gave him eggs to incubate, but he said he did not know what went wrong, but each time you try a hatch, you learn new things not to do or to do, that you did before. Hey, it stopped storming for a few minutes....yep, I see ponies coming out of the barn.

Went to pick up a new front door from Menard's Labor Day special. Another long ride, over hour ride, to nearest store, long ride after we went 50 miles the other way to Tomahawk for a cookot. Really, Mikey needed one, and we went along and decided to get one also. I "think" we were invited because we have the credit card... :), he has a very hard time being on disability, so we do not mind. Now the front door we have (no window) will go to the back door, and the back door, will go out in the shed, which is my barn. Playing musical doors in a few days. And the shed door, will be used for a baby pig pen, turn sideways. Nothing gets wasted her, I try to recycle everything I can. Dominic loves to call it "Hording" but I have a use for nearly everything. I like to work on my projects with me, and getting very good at taking things apart and painting it or use it for another project. He turned my bookshelf, into a chicken nest with dividers. He is taking a shop class this year, and tells me about all the things he wants to make, so I hope he keeps that mind going, because he is miles ahead of other kids his age.

Sunset and early morning riding times are the best. I do not have anyone to ride with, so I just ride in the pastures and fields, followed by all the ponies.

Did you get to go riding the other day? Sounds like it was a pretty day. I know what you mean, I always feel like I waste a gift if I don't get outside on pretty days...or most any day really.
I was hoping wed get some rain from that hurricane, but it missed is by no more than 25 miles. Oh well, it did cool us off a lot. It's 61 this morning, we haven't seen the 60s since April. I'm sure the horses are enjoying the cooler temps.
Well, hope you have a great saturday. Take care.

Mike is still going to be "bumming" today, have to run to Ladysmith for grocery shopping, then to Phillips after school to watch the high school football game, and bring Dominic home with him. Saturday to Mass, and Sunday to Tomahawk for his oldest brother family get together. I get alot of work done when he is not here. All small jobs, but lots of cleaning in the garden and feed it to the little pigs, and their moms. If you check under Willows page, I put a picture of the Scottish Highlander heifer, who is a yr old.

Well, our little farm has grown by one...wish I could announce that it was a foal, but not, it is a heifer yearling. She is a Scottish Highlander, they are a shaggy long haired stocky type of cow, with long horns. Right now she is afraid, but we have her in the pen where the ponies and Willow were in at night. Now, to think of a name. We have been working on getting her since last spring. They are not tamed yet, so the guy had a bit of trouble getting them (3) of them into his trailer. The other 2 went to my son and his girlfriend. Next the little bull will come.

I really am sorry about your kitty. Animals leave such big holes in our hearts when they die and healing does come, but it can take a while.
Also sorry you've had so much rain. And bad weather nearby too, hasn't it? Glad you haven't seen any of that.
We've returned to hot and dry, but we got enough rain earlier in the month that the grass is growing and folks are able to cut more hay, yay.
Yes, Allie is doing well. We're still in the roundpen, but I think I have a plan for getting out of there relatively safely. I'm really enjoying her and looking forward to the day I can trail ride her.
Well, hope your week is going well and you maybe see a little sunshine. Take care.

Raining again, and very cool. I have a sweatshirt on, (and all the windows open), plan on making banana bread, and oatmeal cookies, plus put something in the oven for supper. Looking out in the rain, I think of all the things I could be doing or plan to do. I will be working out in the shed, moving the turtle cage in for the keets, as soon as the rain stops. Mike is looking for stuff to do, before its time for Mass this afternoon. I like going to Church for Mass then, instead of Sunday morning.

Awe Monday, not sure what to do first. Chores are done, need to move the white guineas into the other pen, (getting ready for winter, UGH!!) but they need time to adjust to a different pen and house. After both little dogs went home, I need to wash all their blankets and pads, so they are ready when those little guys return. My cats miss them already. Tomatoes are finally getting ripe, and more cockburrs need chopping down....some of them I feel like hollowing "TIMBER" when they fall. Finish moving the turtle pen into the barn for the baby keets too. Mike has taken Mikey to another dr appointment for his toe, the big sores are infected, even if the drs at Ladysmith say it looks good, I say it needs a "real" doctor to look at it, because it is infected. That's why no one likes going the the Ladysmith Hospital, when a sore has pus, smells, and red....that is what is called infection and needs to be treated.....a patient should not have to beg to get some sort of antibiotics for it.

I had a long talk with Mistit while I brushed her, she just kept nodding her head agreeing with me, about it time to have that baby.....its been a long summer, on baby watch.
Sunday vote from Whisper, Willow and the little herd for you. NIce out today....so far...getting some jobs done outside, that usually is too hot out in the morning to do. Trying to move the turtle cage out to the shed for the little keets, because they are out growing their rabbit cage. The turtle cage is about 5 feet high, 4 ft wide and 10-12 ft long, and no bottom, so they can learn to scratch in the dirt. Because its made from chicken wire, I can put long sticks in for roosts, also put branches, and plants so that they learn to hide in the grasses. I feed them clover and grasses now, but cut it up with the scissors. They are too small to be out with the little chicks, yet. The keets have one fault, they hide their little heads into a hole....like between the hay bales, when being picked on, thinking they can not be seen, but they do not know how to move backwards, only forwards, so they get deep between the bales and die. They are a very smart bird...except for that one stupid fault. So I keep them safe until they are older. Most are spoken for except for the ones I will keep...some different colors than what I have now

Some good new on Mistit...her milk is now yellow, before it was just white coloring. Still keep her separated at night, just incase. Rainy again today, but not a all day rain, but enough to make everything sticky and humidity sort of bad. Try to chop down "cock-bur or burdock" this morning, and some are getting like little trees. Like to do them just before they seed out, it is like a small ball of sticky seeds which get in the horses manes and tails, and nearly impossible to get out.

Today the humidity is so bad, that we have fog and mositure on everything....like raining inside.
Well, Mistit's due date certainly is a mystery....she nearly is past the last due date, first week in Aug, next one will be near the end of Aug. It's been a long baby watch for all of us. I keep checking to see if she has milk, which she does

Good Sunday Morning vote.
Willow seems to enjoy being here. Gets along of attention, everyday, I put her halter on, give her a treat, ride her a bit in the pen. She was a kids horses I am sure, likes to walk 10 ft, when I tell her to, then stop, wait until I tell her again, another 10 ft, stop wait. I can just see a kid riding her and continuously let her stop and eat. She is also hard to get her to come to me, when she see I have a halter. But does not run, just stays out of my reach. It is hard to work with her with all the little ponies right there, looking for their treat too. Or nibbling on my boots, to see if that is where I put their treat. There is no hiding them, because they smell so good....Apple and Peppermint. My pockets smell like them, even if I do not have any with me.

Finally have a few days in a row with no chance of rain, so cutting the new seeding today. Poured yesterday, nearly all morning. It had stopped for a bit, and I was moving some of the keets, baby guinea hens, out to a better rabbit cage in the shed, when it started up big time, so I was halfway across the lawn, and ran with the rabbit cages trying to protect them from getting wet. Ended up working out in the shed, until rain let back up. Found a box of headstalls, starting to mold, huh....not even done cleaning saddles, and having to work on the smaller leather things. Washed most of them in vineger water, because read (somewhere) it would kill mold spores, drying is slow, because of the moister in the air. Today, it is cool outside, should stay like that all weekend. About 62 right

Going to storm today, Mike is taking Mikey to his dr. appointment, and will stop and get me "another" bag of chick starter. Probably, would not need it, but when I sell keets or chicks, I send some feed with them. Sometimes, a 3 pound coffee can full, and with the month old chicks eating like they were starving, 50 pounds goes very fast.
Humidity is so high that the floors, (wood) are wet. Everything is sticky, including my keyboard. Baby sitting 2 little yappers, (dogs) for the past week, Barky is the worst, because he likes to live up to his name. Chance is a Yorkie and wants out and two seconds later wants in....runs back and forth between the front and back door barking. I go to let him in and he is already running to the other door. Stay cool!!

I wrote before, about my flower beds, and will let everyone know, the only way to grow nice flowers, is to "beg, borrow, or steal" the seeds/bulbs. (But I only steal from Mother Nature). Always, said if I am going to steal, it better have 4 legs and a mane and tail, and be worth "hanging" for....and I have come very close to be hung. hee, hee...;)
Let month old chicks out of their pen in the shed this morning, had to plug up every hole under the overhead door, so they could not get outside. Only, because there are 42 of them, and they are so hard to count to bring back in at night. Right now, let them learn to come into the pen where I left there their food and water. Next to deal with the baby keets. Sold some, already, but have some to give to 4-H ers, and saving a few for myself....not sure why I do have enough. Sometimes, I just do not learn from my own mistakes.

My flower gardens, at least most of them bloom year after yr, I add plants here or there but then the chicks think I am making them new ground to scratch in, I like bulbs that just stay in the ground. Have a few bulb type plants that need to be taken inside, so those are planted in big tubs and moved where there is a empty spot or filling in is needed.
I have baby or young trees growing all over, but try to plant them in spots that will provide shade until they are about 3-4 feet tall, and also in the fall the dead leaves or stems provide cover from the snow and cold, like Mother Nature does in the woods.
Its good that you can ride nearly daily. Willow has been running alot more, maybe feeling better, well then she limps. Its the 2 naughty boys and Paisley that want to race with her, that gets things started.
I cleaned up my incubator fast yesterday morning, collected all the dark guinea hen eggs, about 6 dozen. Cleaned them up the best I could, hens bury them in the dirt to keep them cool, but usually they just up and leave if not ready to set. Delivery the eggs and incubator to some 4-H kids so they could "try" to raise some guineas of their own and sell the extras at the next swap or keep until spring to sell. I have 10 more of mine being sold today. Will keep some to replace a few colors I do not have, and save some for a guy I know who does not have any, even if all the eggs I gave him were good, at lockdown, something happened in the last few days. He felt so bad about it.

My son's leg "finally" stopped leaking. They never took him off his warfin, so when he went in for his labs last Tuesday, the results should read 2 or 3, 7 means he is bleeding inside, well, his was "10". As soon as he stop taking the bloodthinner for 2 days his bleeding stopped and started healing up. I should have gave him "radiator "stop leak".
Trip to Bloomington, Mn was looooong, coming home took back roads so seen some different country. Got home around 9, still light enough to get chores done.
Took newly hatched keets out on incubator, I opened it slowly, and they started hopping out like "Popcorn", but best hatch ever for guinea hens, out of 40 eggs I have 31 babies....sadly no white ones, but lots of silver or gray ones. Too tired from riding, or as the saying goes...."Too pooped to Pop", to get much more done. I was hoping Mistit would have her foal, while I was not bothering her all day, checking for signs, but she and her fat little tummy were still there.

Goodness, can't imagine a horse being okay with spray in their eyes. Did Dolly handle it okay? How's her eye looking?
The bareback ride sounds fun. Those are always nice when it's hot, just a slow short ride to enjoy being on.
I thought of you the other day. There's a big white goat loose a few miles from us, and I've tried to catch him a couple of times, even took a bucket of feed with me one day. Sure wish he would come when he's called like your goats do, but he won't let you get within 50-75 feet of him. I'm so afraid he's going to get hit, he's hanging out along some busy roads.
I had my best ride yet on Allie yesterday. She was relaxed and listening, which makes all the difference. Afterwards, I trimmed her hinds and let her graze in the yard as a treat. Hope to ride again today after church, but that depends on the heat and how busy I am.
Have a great sunday. Take care.

Willow certainly is a horse of a different color. Bay roan is about right. She does not have much of a mane or tail, typical Appy style. Last night she was limping again, so did not ride. This morning the weather is just about perfect, 49 degree. Yesterday, not too hot, (about 70), so I did alot of barn and chicken coop cleaning. Finish taking the last 2 wheelbarrow loads out, and all the old sand, straw, from where the little chicks were in the pen, hauled it all over to the area, where I have to redo the flower bed. First I had to pull all the weeds out, fed them to pigs, and take out any bulbs, like iris. So had 5 loads in one pile, to smooth out later. Pulled all the poppy plants out since they have all bloomed, and are nearly ready to spill out there seeds....poppy seeds!! But too many in that bed, since I have a way of over planting my flowers. No rhyme or reason, when I plant flowers. My butterfly garden is at least half-way organized with plants, but thats so there is always something blooming. Going to take some of the guineas to a lady so have to go catch the month old ones soon. They can fly a bit, so not so easy as just taking them out of the pen. I moved white guineas hens into a outdoor pen and put all 40 little chicks and the 5 older guineas into their pen inside the barn. They looked so happy running and trying to fly. Gave them pallets to learn how to roost on, and feed pans all over. Tomorrow is the reunion, so have to get ready for that too.

Thank You for all your kind words. Life is always exciting here, because I am always trying to stay 2 steps ahead of My Banker. My grandson loves cats, and so now we are a kitten hunt, he just told me, Grandma, when I get old enough to leave home, I am going to have a dog of my own and as many cats as I can, well, maybe at least 3 or 4, but if I have to can I bring them to you, because your animals are always so happy. Then he said, I am happy when I come here, because you don't care if I talk to the animals, like my parents do. I was smiling ear to ear, and said, he could bring all the animals here that need homes. I sure hope he doesn't bring too many, but they are all welcome.

Thank You for your vote. Raining right now, so perhaps, I can get some time to put the ponies in one group, instead of 4 pages. But I am trying to clean up saddles so I can sell them, with this humidity some of my leather in the tack room is getting mold on it. My grandson is staying for a few days, and I will put his hands to work. Thank You again.

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.

A Vote for You!!
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.
Well, off to work. Have a great friday and a fun weekend.

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