♡ we had a very nice weekend. It was full of horse time and BBQing! Ribs turned out great and I gave the horses their spa time with full bath with Mane-n-Tail shampoo and conditioner, trims on their faces and ears. I rode Deacon Sat. and went to bed early (didn’t watch fireworks) so Lizzy and I could ride early Sunday morning. Both days had a nice cool breeze until around 12 or 1 pm. Then it turned out extremely hot both afternoons, the winds made it bearable thank goodness! Have a wonderful Monday!!!

My girls are leaving you an early morning vote. Had to check my live trap for a fox that thinks my chickens are easy pickings. But I guess when I let the dogs our at midnight, that's what they were barking at. So, I will try again tomorrow night.

Super hot & humid
Trotting by with some hot votes! Another summer day here in Texas, very hot! Well yesterday's ride went well, we worked on some great bending exercises. He is very good at them, also worked on one rein stops. After my ride yesterday morning while I un tacked him I noticed that he had gotten a cinch mark. So I've been applying vetericyn on it, today I just did ground work. He did good, he seems to not like to pick up his right lead. Like it's un natural for him to lope on that side or something. But I got him to do a full circle without trotting.
Hope all is well, best wishes and stay cool!!!

Whiskey and the boys enjoyed carrots and alfalfa cubes to celebrate King Whiskeys HOTM win! It has been way too hot to ride. I am hoping to ride early Saturday morning around our home area. I will give baths and let the horses have a spa type afternoon! The lakes are still closed and it will be close to July 26th before opening. Happy trails and Have a wonderful day “)

Hi Spencer
Galloping by with some Monday morning votes.
I rode Darby yesterday morning and this morning. We practiced barrels, he did great. It surprised me, since we have not done them in a while. I only trotted the pattern, but loped home a couple times. He seems to take a while to pick up a lope coming home. That's what he needs work on, but the turns are pretty tight. Hoping to lope in between the barrels soon! I plan to ride again tomorrow.
Best wishes!

We received 1 ¾” of rain last night-the wind was unbelievable!!! I had to go and get feed and grocery’s yesterday and by the time we were finished it was too hot to ride. I did get fly stuff on the boys and checked the fly mask and then just watched them graze for the evening! Working the weekend but will try to do something with them after work but it will be to muddy to ride. Here is our finial tidbit on the Fabulous Rocky Mountain Horse Breed!
*TOBE was used for breeding until July of his thirty-fourth year, and he passed on his gait, disposition, and other great qualities to his offspring. It has been said that TOBE's progeny followed in his "perfectly-timed" footsteps. TOBE sired many fine horses before his death at the ripe old age of thirty-seven. One outstanding trait passed on was longevity, as many of his offspring were still breeding into their late twenties and early thirties.
Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

Dropping off a Friday morning vote, the farrier for Darby is coming Saturday. I have been holding off on riding due to his long hooves. Do you do the flying lead change? Or come down to a trot before? I'm having trouble with the flying lead change, I don't think he knows hot to do it.
He has got beautiful tight turn though, when I felt him turn a barrel once at a trot I just knew he could be a great barrel racer. That's what the lady I bought him from said too, she use to ride barrels on him. Well hope your day goes well, best wishes!

* In the early 1960s, Sam Tuttle managed the trail riding concession at the Natural Bridge State Park in Powell County, Kentucky. He had as many as fifty horses there, including TOBE. This stallion was often seen tied to the hitching post alongside all the mares. He became quite well known in the ten or so years he was ridden there. Besides breeding, TOBE was used as a trail horse. He carried Sam, and sometimes the trail guides who worked for Sam, with sure-footed ease over mountainous terrain for many years. Although Sam would allow other people to ride TOBE occasionally, it was always a ride closely supervised. He loved to show off his beloved stallion, but also kept a close eye on him. Everyone who rode TOBE enjoyed his gentle temperament and comfortable gait. It amazed people to think the well-mannered horse they were riding was indeed a breeding stallion.
Thank you for your support we appreciate it!

Stopping by with cool morning a tap on your horseshoe. Arena is drying out nicely, hope to ride soon. I hope your week is going good, with sunshine and hopefully horsey time. Over all weather is super hot here during the days, summer has really kicked in! Darby is great, he loves his new treats! It's some alfalfa hay that I give him a handful every once in a while. He eats it up and wants more! Well have a wonderful blessed Wednesday, love to all and best wishes!!!

Harvest is 3/4 done, very tired, it's a nice crop this year Lilly and I enjoy eating cherries just about every night, toying with the idea about loading her up and trailering her into HoodRiver just 10 miles away to the Saddle Club Trail course challenge this weekend on the 27th, not sure how busy we will be and it's suppose to hit 106 * on Saturday, insane for Oregon, I think I will give her a bath on Friday and see what Saturday is gonna look like, it would be kinda fun I think, it would be a first of any kind of competing for us. Love Suz and Lilly

Raining again, so we do not have to pick rock, more like boulders. Only can put 2 on the stone board or the 4 wheeler can not pull it. That's how heavy they are. My girls are sending you a vote.

Good Morning vote from my girls. My house is filled with little peepers, nearly every outlet has a tote and a heat lamp. Some of them have to go this week. I had brought some baby guineas, (because I only had one hen and 5 males), and my friend wanted some too. Plus my chicks were hatching when our transformer blew, but out of 48 eggs, only 12 made it.

* Even through the hard times of the Depression and World War II years, Sam Tuttle kept a sizable herd of thirty to forty horses on his farm. Sam is considered as the man most responsible for the survival of the Rocky Mountain Horse. TOBE was the primary Rocky Mountain stallion used in Sam's breeding program. In the 1950s, many people were selling their stallions, and the horse population in general was rapidly declining due to tractors and farm machinery available. Even so, breeders remembered TOBE, and he was always in demand for stud service. People brought their mares to TOBE from several different states, and he was as famous in Estill County as MAN O' WAR was in Lexington, Kentucky. Everyone who rode TOBE fell in love with him. TOBE's offspring were always in demand, and Sam never had any trouble selling all the Rocky Mountain Horses he could produce.

HI Spencer, here's a vote for ya. Well we got the rain, it was pretty heavy at the am feeding time. I waited it out to go and work Indy and Paige out. They just got lunged and Paige did some showmanship work. Then it was shower time for me and off to the chiropractor for my monthly tune-up! My middle and upper back sounded like a bowl of rice krispies, snap, crackle and pop! LOL! Went to Wally World and did my major grocery shopping since it was raining cats and dogs. Got home and we must have been hit hard, even the main gate to the barn was blown open, and it usually just sits in place on the ground! Got some wash out gullies going on too! They say more heavy rain and thunder storms tonight! Oh JOY! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

I am off work tomorrow so I will phone vote as many as possible. We had a light shower yesterday evening which we needed. It freshened up the grass it was getting pretty dry. I just need the rain not to fill our lakes and streams like it did a few weeks ago! Mccown at Lake Whitney is still not open. Have a wonderful day ♡
*The families of eastern Kentucky who owned these horses were not wealthy and could not afford to spend a lot of money on the upkeep of their horses. Unlike Kentucky Thoroughbreds that were typically owned by wealthy people, the gaited horses of eastern Kentucky received no special care, and as a result, most of the weak ones did not survive. These horses withstood the harsh winters of eastern Kentucky with minimal shelter, and they were often fed "fodder", a kind of rough silage. Some had to exist on whatever sustenance they could find. So, like deer, they ate the bark off trees when they were hungry. Only the horses that survived these extreme conditions lived to reproduce their kind.

Good late morning vote!!!
Got a short shower this morning, hope no more comes. I was planning on doing ground work with Darby. I'm working on his behavior on top, then I'm going to start teaching him barrel racing. He knows the cloverleaf pattern, he just has an attitude while we ride. Hope your Sunday is getting off to a great start, love and best wishes***

✞ Whiskey has a fast walk that is like the true gait of a Rocky Mountain but it isn’t as pronounced like the other RM horses I see, it’s a little different. He has the smoothest gallop and run. He has the energy to go go go. He will go no matter how long you want to ride-his battery never seems to run out but that is the breed, again they started out as a utility horse!! Whiskey stays to himself; he doesn’t really hang with the other 2, only once in a while. Deacon picks him as a favorite for a day or 2 then they separate and Rocket is Deacons main herd mate. * During the late 1800s and early 1900s, the rural inhabitants of eastern Kentucky considered these saddle horses to be horses for all seasons. They were sure-footed, easy-gaited, and the mount of choice for postmen, doctors, and traveling preachers. People used them for plowing small fields, herding cattle, traveling through the steep and rugged trails, and driving the buggy to church on Sunday. Horses were not a luxury, but a necessity. Every horse had to earn its keep and be extremely versatile. It was not a matter of having horses around to use every once in a while; these horses were worked hard, every day. At the end of the day they were exhausted, but possessed enough stamina to continue on, day after day.
Thank you for your support we appreciate it!
