How We Met

Rescue - My dad was buying a horse and saw this guy there as a baby. The people bought him for his size not knowing you can't ride a 6 month old so he was left alone in field with no shelter or company..

Folks around here getting their last cutting in too. I think it was a decent hay season here-not too wet or too dry.
Rode Gracie for about 2 hrs yesterday, just slow, but it was so nice to ride again. Hope you have a good Friday. Take care.

Hey Butter, what a bummer you've been so busy you haven't had much time to ride. Hopefully they did cut the trails back though and you can enjoy a nice trail without ducking branches all the time lol. Our HOTM run begins Monday..keeping our fingers crossed :) It was pretty hot here today..about 90 when I took Koot out. I didn't ride today but just let him have a play day cuz it was so hot. Voted. XOXO Danya and Koot

Hi Butter, here's a vote for ya. Sure hope they are right and there are no low flying branches on those trees on the trail! DUCK! Well it's a sunny but really cool breezy day today. Felt good compared to the last few days of high humidity and high 80 temps. Got the trailer just about totally cleaned up, vacuumed the floor and rug today and then washed the floor and waxed it. All rugs clean, Harley's bed comforter clean and packed away for next season. Just have to wash the shower real good and pledge the cabinets. Mowed the lawn and turned the kids out all afternoon, told Paige her mini vacation is just about over! LOL! She laughed at me! LOL! Marion and the blondes.

Glad you have found a place to ride where you won't be ducking all the time. Slightly cooler this AM. Worked Nugget and Cisco, I think Meg is getting jealous, she kept butting in. Noticed 6 hummingbirds last evening, so put out an extra feeder, this morning there at least 8. Saved a young mockingbird (I hope) from the jaws of death, one of my cats had caught it and I managed to grab her and pry her mouth open. Cat NOT happy, bird flew off a few minutes later. Hope it is OK. Then (UGH) went grocery shopping. Cheryl & Cisco

Hey Butter, So sorry for being offline a lot lately. The past two weeks have been pretty busy. I had a sinus infection which caused me not to even see Koot for a week which was an absolute bummer and because of that I won't be able to compete in the barrel race August 30th since Koot hasn't been exercised enough. I'm pretty bummed about that, but I don't want to chance hurting him. I took Koot for a ride Sunday and then a short trail last night with my pup, Tig. They had a great time. How are things with you? Have you gotten horsey time in? Koot and I still plan to run for October HOTM so please vote for us :) thanks! Voted. XOXO Danya and Koot

Sorry for not being on a lot! I have been busy. Thanks for all Spangle's support!

The rest of Spangle's story:
Spangle still goes through bratty phases, but he has become nicer to Rose. He also is doing better under saddle. We are considering sending him to a trainer, but haven’t decided. The most important thing is that he is nicer to Rose. I hope you enjoyed Spangle’s story!

Hi Butter, here's a vote for ya. I don't think Butter will mind that it was a sale blanket, just as long as it's toasty warm to him! LOL! I'm still trying to catch up on sleep and start my clean up to put the trailer up for the winter. It's great having Paige home again, love seeing that pretty face when I walk in the barn. She really enjoyed her time out in the pasture today. What a big show!!! OMG, we were in some deep classes, packed with trainers and super good amateurs. Most of my classes and Marissa's and Laurel's one class were about an average of 13 to 19 horses in each class. And top of the line show horses! We pinned for the most part, but did get the gate a few times. It was tough competition, I'm not kidding. Like being at the Congress almost! But we came home with a lot of state points to give me good year end money at least. Paige also showed Friday in the Green Trail and in the Senior Trail. Placed under all three judges in both classes, that we were very happy about. So all in all, I'm very happy with how this complete show season has gone with my new trainer! Not letting her go! LOL! Marion and the blondes.

Spangle's story continued:
A month and a half ago, I loped Spangle again. He didn’t buck! We ended on that good note. Also we have worked with him on loading into the trailer. He now will load easily. If he won’t go in, you just show him a crop and he will be in the trailer in no time.

The farrier was out yesterday to give the horses their trim.

Everet Shaw, who rode his share of great steer roping horses, told Hyde
that Blue was the best horse at Cheyenne that year. Hyde and Del both felt
that Blue started out of the box quicker and could catch cattle easier than
any horse they had ridden. The combination of Blue's athletic ability and
Del's training made him hard to beat. ~Thanks for voting~ **Copper**

This program
produced the stallion Gooseberry, Crow Creek (Lory's top calf horse), and
many good mares. Hyde and Dede then bought the other half interest in Blue
Valentine from Del. Hyde felt like it was a great privilege to rope steers
on Blue. In 1970 Hyde roped at his last Cheyenne Frontier Days on Blue. ~Thanks for voting~ **Copper**

I lunged Spangle under tack yesterday. He was being a little grumpy, but was good. I then got on and walked and trotted him. He was really good:)

I rode Rose bareback last night at dusk. It was just a fun ride. We loped in each direction too:) It was fun.

Hi Butter, here's a vote for ya. HUM, interesting! Is it a step off or ramp? Some times they get learly of stepping off. I would work on his ground manners and backing in hand at home, and then on and off the trailer. Glad that his swim was good and he likes the waves. Sorry about that foot, major ouch! Hope nothing is broken in there! I really like they position of the stirrups and am leaving them that way, have to figure if we can get my show saddle back 3/4 of an inch on the bars and that'll work great. Not sore at all. Very productive day on the farm today. Lot's of getting ready for our last show of the season. Well last for us, plenty more going on around us, but this is my usual end of the season one. Then weed whacked the entire place, and mowed the lawn and rail on the outdoor arena, down by the manure pit and back up to the house. Went downtown for my gas for the lawn tractor and picked up feed for the horses and for the dog. Boys out and then me and Harley out on the couch for a nice nap with a cool breeze coming in the front door! Love those kind of days! Marion and the blondes.

Spangle's Story Continued:
Eventually, after working Spangle in the round pen for a couple months, I got on and rode him at a walk. The next time I rode we trotted. We have been working on walking and trotting under saddle for a while. Two months ago we tried loping. He bucked. I made him gallop once I was safely on the ground. Got back on and walked and trotted him. I also lunged him at a lope.

I'M GOING CRAZY HERE....
Thanks guys for the suggestions, however, I'm in Canada and Smart Pac can not ship here. I will see what Cookie recommends. I don't think it is restless leg syndrome as Cindy suggested, he only does this at night when in his stall. He has a Jolly Ball, he has a huge stall, he has Sterly visible over the half door, he is outside ALL day long, I mean from 6:30 AM to 5 or 6 PM, he has the barn open during the day if he wants in out of the sun or rain. I have given this a lot of thought and I really think he started this when he was not being ridden last summer, now I have a NASTY habit to try to break. I'm just so angry that I did not nip it in the bud last summer, grrrr. Please Charlie stop this. We are going to cover all the exposed wood and concrete in that corner, at least if he still kicks the concussion should be less. Thanks for listening to all this, Love you all, we left a vote, Donna Lee

Hyde inherited from his father the satifaction of riding a good horse he knew he had raised. In the fall of 1956, Ken Gunter gave Del Haverty the pick of the Red Man colts. Del picked a blue roan stallion named Blue Valentine. Del trained Blue to rope calves, tie-down team rope, and haze dogging steers. ~Thanks for voting~ **Copper**
