So glad all are well. My herd is too. It's been so dry down here that I was worried about getting enough hay to get them through the winter, but they made it fine. Got 2 round bales to spare.
Yeah, I so belong exactly where the good Lord plunked me down. Like a plant, I seem to need plenty of sunlight, lol. Wish I could share it with you and my other HC friends who suffer through the long dark days of winter.

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

Yes, Zack was a great dog, we have lost a truly wonderful friend in him, He was only 8 and our Vet really had no answer, he felt that because of what David described and the suddenness of it all, he is leaning toward cardiac issue, however Zack had no history, never even a murmur on any of his exams. So it remains a mystery as to what caused it. We have sent to away to be cremated he will be home in about a week.
We awoke to blanket of snow grrr, but it should be gone by noon, and maybe even some sun, we left a vote

Have a wonderful weekend. ♥

it was sunny after work and less windy-wind from the north & east rather then the south. Filled water tubs, turned out the boys to graze and put their feed up that I got on the way home. Just a nice evening before this silly weather hits us today and the next few days! Have a wonderful Sunday and here is a hug & a vote ♡ spring is just around the corner. I saw bloomed daffodil flowers yesterday in town!!!!

♡ Oh Sunday was absolutely beautiful, the temp was 73 and little to no winds. I did get out of work later then I excepted so I just let the boys out to graze and enjoy the weather. They got carrots with their evening feeding time and they loved that. I want to let everyone know that the COA page (calendar of Agendas) has come to an end. Maria (Dakota’s mom) and I have agreed that there is not enough support to continue this page. I suggest for anyone that wants pictures or any history from the page to visit and copy and paste what you want. She will be turning in the points and deleting the page soon. I will still be on HC with my horses so anyone that runs for HOTM & HOTD I will support of course as a regular member as always. Have a wonderful Monday!!!

♥ I have had a relaxing nice 7 days off work. I did have time to groom, play, watch and ride the horses. I also enjoyed my other animals as well. I seemed to have finished a lot that I had planned but rested as much as possible. I have also made a to do list for myself for the warmer days like, clean feed buckets, clean and oil saddles and bridles, wash saddle pads, clean out tack room (I started that on my vacation) and at some point (lol) I want to clean the panels between the stalls and paint-not sure if that will ever happen but I put it on my list. Good to be back at a computer instead of using my phone. Have a wonderful weekend <)__~

After work yesterday I let the herd out to graze. They were so happy to see the sunshine and have grazing time. I took the curry comb and got as much mud off as I could. They liked that too. I can't hardly wait to ride tomorrow! Have a wonderful weekend everyone ♡

☆ we have a very busy week ahead of us so quick votes this week. It has been so cold and wet. The rain cleared out Sat. afternoon and it has been sunny but windy. My herd has evolved into MUDSTANGS so major grooming coming their way ~ I’m sure that won’t bother them a bit. Whiskey’s eye is normal again, I stopped doctoring it Friday and it still looks good thank GOD!!! . Have a wonderful day! Whinnies & hugs =)

Ω Deacon thanks all of you for your amazing support during his run! Again love all my HC friends and horses. I took Whiskey Tuesday for a ride at the lake. He hasn’t been out there for a while and we had a cold but nice ride. I got my birthday gift early and it is a beautiful new saddle pad. I will post under Whiskey in a little while. Deacon had the day off! Wed. & Thursday (today as well) is so cold and wet out. Won’t clear out until tomorrow afternoon. Don’t know when I will ride again. Whinny’s hugs & love ~ Stay safe & warm Ω

☆ I want to thank all of you so much for your support of Deacon’s HOTM run! He has over 500 votes so far and we had a late start to boot! I will be off work the next 3 days so I will be phone voting. On the 1st when I wake I will see who top horse is and I am surely hoping it is my Deacy (Mr. Eyeliner) lol I will get a final vote count before I go to bed the 31st and let you know what his final votes were. Love my HC friends to the moon and back again!!! Have a wonderful day! Whinnies & hugs =)

Thanks to all for supporting my Angel Mackie, he was such a special horse. I will never forget him and it does my heart good to see him honored by my friends on HC, thanks so much.
Yesterday was a fun day, the meal was excellent, ate way too much, now I'm sorry...I'll be good until tomorrow, we are having our turkey with my brother & his family. We left a vote and lots of love, Donna Lee

About Prince Teton
Breeder Rodney Nardelli must have smiled when he first saw the handsome little colt born to his mare. I like to imagine the little guy bouncing and bucking around his mama, then pausing to check out this new creature that leans over his stall door. He would have looked much like he does today, strikingly handsome, with loads of presence, the kind that makes passersby stop, back up, and have a second look. Nardelli chose a name that was a neat combination of his sire, Teton Forest, and dam, Princess Sequoya, and fit the little horse perfectly. Prince Teton. Prince Teton grew to a whopping 16.1 hands high, but the way he carries himself makes him seem like 17 hands at least. At two, this horse went into racing training and, with the right jockey, he could win anything. He sustained a sesamoid injury which put him off the track for a while, but before long he was back in the winner’s circle. In all, He won 12 out of 27 races and placed second or third in quite a few of the 15 he didn’t win. He won about 150,000 dollars. When he was six years old, his trainer retired him and put him up for sale. A man in Crittenden, KY bought him, seeing his win history and hoping to put him on the track again. Here was Prince Teton’s disaster. This man was a scrooge, caring only for money and nothing else. Prince Teton suffered. He lost weight, and his beautiful black hair faded to a pale bay. He lived in this awful barn for a year and a half. Meanwhile, my horses were coming along nicely, and I was looking for a new challenge.

About Prince Teton 2
I got the idea to buy an OTTB (off the track Thoroughbred) and train him for eventing or show jumping. I discovered Canter USA. I was scrolling through the ads, looking at so many beautiful horses, but none of them really “clicked” with me. I absentmindedly scrolled past the ad for Prince Teton that his former trainer had posted. Then, like many people had already done, I snapped to attention and scrolled back. My mouth dropped open. Here was a beautiful, handsome horse, dark brown, almost black, his awesome tail literally dragging on the ground. He was well filled out, well-muscled, and stood erect and proud, gazing into the horizon. His eye had a soft, kind look to it. I checked his pedigree. Impressive as well. I took down the number, even though the ad was old, and I didn’t think I could ever get my hands on such a horse anyway. I called his trainer, and he gave me Teton’s new owner’s number, saying that he thought the horse was for sale again. I contacted the owner, and we arranged for me to go see him. At the sight of Prince Teton, I deflated. His ribs were jutting out from his sides, his color was pitiful, and he had scratches all over his body. His eyes were dull and lifeless. I could have cried. I didn’t want to take on a horse like that, I wanted to start training right away, but I knew this horse desperately needed help, and I knew what the right thing was to do. I took Prince Teton home. I kept him away from my other horses until he was wormed and pronounced disease free. Then I let him out with my mares. They bonded right away and he became the lead stallion. I began to play vet right away. A trip to the real vet revealed that he had a mild urine infection due to dehydration and some skin problems, and he was treated for that. I took home lots of supplements and advice. I gave him a bath. I fed him sweet feed packed with supplements every day. Prince Teton responded by getting worse. I began to despair. He was losing his hair, his weight was going down even more, and he seemed even more depressed. I continued to fight for his life. Finally, after almost two months, he began to respond. His hair grew back to a dull black, but at least it was black. Slowly, slowly, his ribs covered up.

About Prince Teton 3
The most encouraging thing was the spirit he regained. We bonded quickly, and he began a daily routine of galloping madly around the pasture, bucking and sending huge chunks of dirt flying from beneath his pounding hooves. His eyes once again, had the peaceful, kind glow. The first time I rode him he proceeded to run away with me, but I persevered, and he is learning to slow down. He does well over ground poles and soon I will start him over jumps. He still has some minor skin issues, which are slowly clearing up, and he has bouts of colic which keep him on digestive supplements. But he is doing so much better than he was a year ago! The bond between us is very strong, and my Teton Boy would do anything for me, and I for him. He wants so much to please. He would probably try to climb a tree if I asked him to. He’s very intelligent, and when I introduce new concepts to him, he figures them out very quickly. It does me good to see him heartily eating his feed or strutting around in the pasture like royalty because I know what he’s been through and how he can now enjoy a good quality of life. He has some fears that I can only guess why he’s afraid of them, like hay racks and pliers. He is learning to face those fears, because in my barn they are only tools, and not something to be afraid of. I think Teton has a bright future ahead of him. He has a good jumping build and he obviously has natural talent because whenever he gets the urge he hops over his pasture fence and tries to find me. Once he starts jumping, I will find a rider for him and his first competition will be the Thoroughbred horse show in Lexington, KY, designed especially to start the OTTB in his new career. I’d like to encourage anyone looking for a new horse to find one who needs help. There are too many out there who need help and don’t get it. So many horses live their lives out in terror and hunger. As equestrians, we need to do all we can to help our companions.
