How We Met

My mom really wanted a horse, but couldn't afford one, so she leased Mercy for 2 1/2 years. When she could afford her, my mom bought Mercy for $750. Note: To protect people's identities I have blurred their faces. If a face is not blurred, then it is a picture of me..

I had to stop by the store, after work and buy another fly mask. Sassy Miss Sadie is rough on them. I don't like having to keep her beautiful face covered, but the flies here are bad. Got to keep her pretty eyes protected. Aren't horses some of the most gorgeous creatures? Love and a vote.

Come visit me, SADIE *Thank you for August HOTM!! Humbled.*.

hi Dawn, left a vote today
Good morning, first, I'm sorry if I missed anyone yesterday, HC has been so S L OW. It took forever to do my blogging. Second Cookie came around yesterday and did teeth, yippee, Sterly did not require the power float, she was looking good, he is generally p;eased with her, Charlie did well with his float also, however, my boy has developed a vice and I wonder if anyone has a suggestion....at night in his stall, he stands next to Sterly's half door and he kicks the wall (wood), it is hard to describe, not directly behind, but the wall that he is standing parallel to. I'll get a picture this morning and post it. Dr. Cook is worried, me too, that he will eventually injure his hocks, he does it on both sides, depending on which direction he is facing. HELP. David suggested fastening rubber matting to the wall to absorb the shock. Dr. Cook said, like any vice, it is sometimes very difficult to stop once they have made it a habit. We had a nice ride yesterday, hope to today before the rains come, all week....We voted, Love Donna Lee

Come visit me, Sterl May, Angel Sassy Mac Mar 8/95-Aug 8/07 & Royal Mes "How can I stop kicking?".

Hi everyone! I've been at the fairgrounds this week cheering on my cousin in the horse and pony classes for 4H. My youngest daughter and I went to learn "the ropes" so she can show Bub and Bee next year. Even though I got my first horse when I was 8 yrs old, my parents wouldn't let me show, so all this is new to me. So this week have not rode at all because of getting home late and then the time chores are done, I'm pooped! I sit down to rest between 10-11 o'clock! My mind is to wound-up to go to bed, so got to watch TV and fold laundry to turn the brain off.

Been hot again with no rain, so off and on been using the sprinklers so hopefully do not loose the pasture yet again-every year since 2010 we have had to start all over.

Have a great night and weekend! Voted, of course.

Come visit me, Ella Bee & My Thirty Six.

Turned Sadie's mister off, because it's windy. Back on Thursday, unless it's windy. Wind blows the mist away. Love and a vote.

Extreme heat warning for the next day or 2. Got Sadie's mister going. Going to leave it on until the heat warning's over, unless she figures out how to rip it down. She's on her second mister, because she tore down her first one and ruined it. Love and a vote.

Hi Mercy, here's a vote for ya. Sorry to hear that Rocky moved on. Today was the triple H day, hazy, hot and very humid! But I got over to work with Paige at our trainers. She had just finished lungeing her when I got there and Paige was wet all ready. Then Marissa rode her and gave her a good tune up! She was not wanting to get off her right leg and just leaning on Marissa's spur, that stopped after a little talk! LOL! Then I got to ride the cool down period. But then Paige was out of gas and looking to just walk and hang her head. LOL! Got home really late and it was very buggie, so the boys stayed in with more hay and in front of double fans. They were happy! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Come visit me, Nuttin But Good. Thanks Mom, Indy & H.T. #8700!, R.I.P. Hi Tech Image, #13300 THX Cisco and Herd & MWS Zippn By Indy, Thank you Sadie for #17400!.
