How We Met

I was looking for a horse, totally exhausted from the search, got on Dream Horse. com one day becuase I decided to buy a horse close to home since I did not have a trailer yet, Lilly was 15 miles away, my dream horse was right in my backyard, she was picked on by all the other horses but when I got to know her through several test rides there was something Very special about her, you could see it in her eye's,she looked a little hagered but there was a diamond in the rough under there, once I purchased her and got her home she bloosomed into a real beauty and very smart and so very sweet, I pray we are togehter till death do use part, she is my BFF.

Hi Lilly, here's a vote for ya. Well it was a hot humid one today. Heat index was at 95 degrees, straight up temp was 90! So Indy and Paige were both only lunged for 15 minutes, with every fan going in the indoor, plus the big 36 round fan by the one door way. So it wasn't all that bad in there out of the sun and humidity. Then I waited for the sun to move and shade the backside and northeast side and then I weed whacked all that down. Moved the trailer into the driveway closer to the garages and will start to pack it up tomorrow. Remembering to bring a ton of electrolytes for both the horses, dog and myself. Although the dog will be into the trailer almost 24/7 in the A/C! Lucky him! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Almost at the end of our HOTM run...yay! Keep the votes coming and thank you.~~~

Susie was going to have to return to LSU to have skin grafts done. The wound would not completely heal without having the grafts done. They needed the wound to start healing first and then after it reached a certain point, they were going to implant the skin grafts into the wound. She returned to LSU on October 15th. However the wound bed was not ready for the grafting, so she stayed there and on October 22nd they preceded with the grafting process. (Voted)

Sorry to hear about Oregon's lack of rain. Texas will have to reroute that ditch, to go from Texas to California and Oregon. Long ditch, everyone who is unemployed can get a job. So far Wisconsin is doing good. But about 3 years ago, we were so dry and barely got enough hay for the winter. I know how it feels. I still save my wash water, for plants, set out the rain barrels, use plastic to catch dew for the plants.

Here's a click on your horseshoe. Rode yesterday, bareback. And we loped, his did good. The only attitude was when he tripped he bucked. That's what he is know to do. It's weird. But luckily he didn't throw me.
Toady I'm gonna ride. Maybe saddle, I'll have to check the mark. Hope all is well, staying cool and having some horsey time. Love always and best wishes!

My goodness! Horses are so smart. I've noticed that Sadie sometimes has what looks like dried drops of water on her back. Monday, she filled her mouth with water and tossed it on her back. How cool is it that she knows how to cool herself off? I don't know if this is something horses normally do, or if she was inspired by being hosed down or cooling off in the sprinkler. Just amazing! So thankful for the wonderful things we learn from our four legged loved ones. Love always and a vote.

It's been pretty hot and dry up here in Western WA too. We have to water the horses' field constantly to keep the grass green. The horses like the opportunity to play in the water, though!

Hi Lilly, here's a vote for ya. Got a lot of little things done today. Spread out 200 lbs of Mag/Cal in the indoor in the super dry and dusty areas, yes I have those, along with some still wet spots from that storm almost 2 weeks ago now! UGH! Well last night we had that storm, I don't think we've ever had lightning and thunder that lasted so long, it was well over two hours of it. And the rains finally came, heavy for a while too, I was worried about more seeping into the indoor on the low side, but all was well. Rain gauge said one inch. Today was major food shopping day and get all that's needed for our horse show this Thursday when we leave. Horses were out late in the afternoon, as it was very hot and humid earlier, then it seemed to drop in humidity and a nice breeze came in. Tomorrow it's back to riding and start to pack up the trailer. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

The next day October 25th, a surgical excision of the lesion was done. Preliminary results were not consistent with pythium. However a culture was taken and sent off for testing. The initial diagnosis was an ulcerative and proliferative lesion on the lateral aspect of left rear pastern. After the surgery was done Susie remained at LSU for 9 days, where she was confined to a stall and her bandages changed every 3 days. She was sent home on October 2nd. We were told to keep her confined to her stall. However we separated the barn to give her two stalls and the middle isle, where we placed a round hay bale for her to eat. We also had to change her bandages every 3 days. This again was just like when she had her head wound. It is very difficult for someone, without any medical background, to apply these bandages. This bandage consisted of six steps (telfa pad, white cling gauze, cotton combine, brown gauze, vetwrap and elasticon). Try putting this on all while the horse is moving. lol Just lucky there were two of us working together. Susie seemed to be enjoying, once again being treated like a queen. Here's a vote.

Sorry it's been so hot for you. Hasn't rained here all month, so we're getting dry, too. Glad you had a cool weekend, we won't be seeing much relief till Sept. Great that everyone is doing well. Will be heading up to Throwaway Ponies on Weds, see if I can find a nice, gentle mare for a companion for Nugget when Cisco and I are gone.

it's been super hot and dusty. I'm trying to keep my horses cool and hosed off every day. I mixed up half alcohol and half water and sprayed it on them. the alcohol evaporates faster for a quicker cool down. when I ride I'm mostly walking. we're about ready for some rain!

O.K. here comes Susie’s drama. It is October 24, 2012, only two months after Lollipop’s death. We bring Susie back to LSU. This time she has a lesion on her left rear pastern. We noticed it a couple of days before and decided this time we would go straight to LSU. We thought for sure that it was the pythium again, it looked just like the lesion on her head. We didn’t even bother to call a vet, we loaded her up and headed to LSU. We knew she would be in great hands. Left a vote.

Hi Lilly, here's a vote for ya. Well, thank goodness I woke up a new woman! Got a lot done to make up for the lost day yesterday. Rode Miss Paige and she was really awesome today. Then they got turned out and I mowed the lawn and did a few other outside things. Knowing that this storm we are now getting was movin' on in! It's been thunder and lightning for over 45 minutes now, no rains yet! But I saw pictures on FB of the damage it did to Norther PA! Hope it's worn down a little by the time we get the full effect of it. So if you don't hear from me and are reading this on someone else's page, it's cause it's really close now and I shut the computer down. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

How are the critters doing? Still hot and dry in Mosier? Ugh!
I was able to spend a lot of time outside yesterday, first working Allie, and then repairing the electric fence around the dry lot and cutting weeds off it. When I finished, it sent just enough juice down the line to make BJ twitch an ear and lazily move his neck off it. Hmmmm. More work to be done if I can figure out how.
Well, hope you're having a good weekend.

Hi Lilly, here's a vote for ya. So on Friday, I got Indy lunged and Paige ridden. Did a couple of other things. Got them turned out to pasture and took a nap! I knew the wedding at 6:30 pm would be a long night! But I held off on feeding till 5:30 and put me leaving about 6:10 pm. Missed the vows thing, glad for that. Cocktail hour with all the many tables of picken's was under way. I had my first in 25 years drink of a Toasted Almond. Took me two hours to finish it! LOL! Glad I filled up on the goodies at all the hot food stations. Cause for the main meal it was a choice of Filet Mengion, Salmon, or Chicken stuff with spinach and red peppers, since I don't do meat or fish, went with the chicken! Wish I could have had the kids meal of chicken fingers. Ate two bites and called it quits, horrible! The night dragged on, very slow in doing every thing! Cake cutting was at 10:30 pm, but with an open serving stations of all kinds of Italian deserts. Good thing, made up for missing my meal! LOL! Hardly anyone danced, DJ wasn't playing good tunes at all. Just wasn't a lively wedding party for sure! Felt so sorry for Eileen, the brides mother, she got stuck holding their kid all night long, and she too has bad back problems. Not right! Called it quits by 11 pm and had the 45 minute drive one. Checked the horses, let the dog out and thought I could pass out. Nope. Spent this morning making up for lost sleep. Nothing got done today. What a waste of a day! Horses did get out all afternoon to graze however. I'm not a night time person! No more weddings for me, I'm out of town! LOL! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Just want to say thanks again for all the support and the votes. Keep them coming! Just one more week to go! The story continues...

So what’s going on with Susie all this while…you ask. Don’t worry Susie is laying back just waiting to spring some more of her drama on us. As you can see never a dull moment around here. With a herd of horses, especially like mine, there is always something going on. There may not be a lot of riding activity going on, but there is a heck of a lot of every other activity going on here. lol (Another click on the horseshoe)

Hope you're getting some rain. After our nearly non stop deluge this spring, nada all month and really getting dry. Hope everything is going well. Bleh. Internet problems.

On late today had a spa day and lunch with my Mom and sisters. Very relaxing day. ~~~

On August 23rd Lollipop was euthanized, at the age of 24. This was a horrible day. I remember it well. Lollipop was my husband’s favorite horse. She was the best horse he’d ever had or would ever have. He loved her so much and still speaks of her fondly. He had called the vet and told him that he needed to have Lolli put down. They set up a time when he could come out. I went to work that morning, but told my supervisor that I would need to leave for a while that afternoon. Knowing the circumstances she of course said no problem. My husband called me when the vet was on his way. I got to the pasture and the rest of the horses were in their stalls. We led Lolli out to the pasture near where she would be buried. My husband said his goodbyes to his sweet mare and he left to go continue digging the hole. I held Lolli out in the pasture waiting for the vet to arrive. I spoke to her and comforted her all the while. I wanted to let her know that her baby Ace would be fine, that Susie would love and care for him. I told her that she would be going to a much better place, where she could run and play, and would no longer be in pain. Soon the vet arrived and with two quick injections, Lolli was gone and the tears came. My husband could not watch this happen but when it was over, he came and picked her up with the tractor and carried her to the hole he had dug. She is buried on our pasture where we can visit with her everyday. The herd of course mourned her for the next several days. They seemed lost without her, she was the Alpha mare. However Gypsy soon took over the herd and things got back to somewhat normal.

That was the third reason we decided to keep Ace. He was a part of Lollipop and we could keep her with us through him. RIP Lollipop.~~~~ Here's your vote.

so sad to see the cloth shade coming down. I guess the wood structures will stay up?
did Lilly get her toes trimmed yesterday? I trimmed Cinni's feet this morning and she always enjoys the attention. of course, she gets a grooming and fly spray too. rode Allie in the roundpen also, working on one rein stops, and also let her trot and lope in both directions, just so she knows she can. she did great. I love how she tries to be good, all I have to do is show her how and reward her when she gets it right.
well, hope you and the critters have a good thur.

It’s August 2012 now. Lollipop seemed to be having more and more trouble with her feet. We had been watching her pretty closely the past few months. She was laying down more in the pasture and for longer periods of time. We of course talked to the farrier about her, but he said since the coffin bone had already rotated, nothing could be done to stop it. There of course were options like certain type of horseshoes that would help with the pain. Early on we did buy her some boots to wear whenever we rode. We also had her on a herbal supplement , called herbal bute. This stuff really helped her. But we knew it was only a matter of time. She started having trouble coming into the barn to eat. We would have to go out to her in the pasture and feed her. This was hard to watch. My husband made the decision that something had to be done. (Left a vote)

Hi Lilly, here's a vote for ya. Well the temps broke and it was just beautiful out there today. High was only 78 and a very nice cool breeze! Got a lot done. Worked Indy and the lunged and rode Paige in the indoor. All doors wide open and the breeze just blowing through, made for a really nice work session. Everyone got out for a while for grass too, they loved that! I then mowed another pasture. And speaking of mowing, new neighbor out there mowing his rocks on this side of his house. I wonder if he realizes that his blades are now shot and he's making rock pieces fly over here! Better not ding my L/Q trailer! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Now let’s see…oh yes it is the year 2012. June 1st and Lollipop’s colt, Ace, is now one year old. He is a handsome little fellow and so good to. We never even had to wean this one. We tried once separating him by putting him in a little pen, but he jumped the fence to be with his mom. Lollipop pretty much weaned him herself. We just left them together in the pasture with the other horses. Ace was eating feed early on. Lollipop was pretty old at this point and she was slowing down. She was having trouble with her feet, she had foundered several years earlier and the coffin bone in her hoof had rotated. We still rode her on occasion but not often and not for long periods. We would soak her feet in buckets of water with apple cider vinegar and rub her legs with absorbine. She loved the pampering.

Hi Lilly, here's vote #2900 for ya. Well today was one of those goof off days! I knew it was going to be, had a luncheon date for my birthday with some very dear friends. An hours drive to meet them and the same for the ride home. Over three hours in the Bistro Restaurant gabbing. We only get together about once a year and there's a lot to catch up on all around! LOL! And besides, it was another really hot humid day! So horses had a late lunch themselves and then the storm rolled in. We got very lucky, only lightning, thunder and high winds, which cooled it down by 15 degrees. Nice out now. But Southeast of us got the heavy duty rains! They can have it. Tomorrow I'll drag the indoor, mostly dry now and then work Indy and ride Paige. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hello! Sorry to hear you're having a drought. Praying some rain may come your way and cool things off a bit! We've had hot weather here too. But today it cooled off a little! My brothers and I went out this morning and enjoyed to fun time with the horses. Some rode while others walked as we went along the trails my brother mowed in the pasture. It was fun to see them so enjoying being with the horses! :D

im so sorry to hear that you are in a drought, made that much worse by all that heat. I hate drought with a passion. it seems like the plants and ground are in agony with the dryness.
glad everybody is getting their pedicures. seems like goats would be hard, just because of how short they are. do you trim their hooves with them up on a platform?
worked Allie in the round pen again today, and even got on her to work on steering, but that's going to be a work in progress, she doesn't get the idea of turning while she's moving very well yet. It might be unfair to try to teach her go, turn, and stop all in the same lesson. but she tries and that's all I ask.
