Trotting by with a vote!
Something that can only be described by the phrase "It's a long story" began last Monday, when my cousins offered to temporarily keep a neglected Belgian stallion in a paddock at our barn. The paddock has a mesh fence with hotwire on the top. It's more than enough to contain the horses in Cimarron's herd, but it was not enough to contain the Belgian.
The stallion tore out a section of the fence, hotwire and all, and escaped into the main pasture, where he proceeded to wreak havoc. He pursued the mares, of course, but Cimarron and another gelding got in the way. The stallion thrashed both of them, although Cimarron got the worst of it. He's missing a large chunk of hide from his shoulder, has a fist-sized bite on his neck, and another bite on the underside of his neck, near his throatlatch. My cousins managed to drive the stallion into a pasture on the neighboring property - one with a more solid fence. Meanwhile, I'm rather upset about this whole series of events. My poor Cimarron!
The good news for the day is that Cimarron got new shoes, so his feet look really beautiful now, and he's been happily begging for treats and wiggling his tongue at me. So... That's something.

Come visit me, Pippin & Cimarron.

finally back to the computer to Blog, Lilly is doing fantastic, I have all my fall maintenance for her lined up , a trim then Dr. Jeff comes for her fall shots and wellness check, Have been riding or walking every night this week, to keep me focused on the important stuff like love laughter and me time, all this week I have been involved in transitioning my job out, which is really weird thing to do, ( work your way out of a job )not sure what my last day is but I think sometime in Oct, early I hope, I know longer will be doing what I do as of Oct. 2 I doubt my company would want to hang on to me to do nothing for very long after that. I actually can't wait now to get out of corporate America, it has been a good job but I have resolved now that a new, glorious adventureis about to begin. !! Love Suz and Lilly

Here's a vote from Buddy! Well, it's been quite a long time since Buddy & I have been on to blog and vote. A lot has happened since we were on last and I will try to recall it all.

Last time I was on was right before I went for my vacation up to the ranch. I had a really good time up there and lots of fun. I got to see friends that I hadn't seen since last year and go on quite a few rides. I stuck to riding two horses that I always used to ride before I was able to ride Buddy. Gypsy, and Keira. Gypsy is Keira's mother and also is the mother of Buddy's first colt Vanner. The most memorable part of my trip is shortly after we got there we were talking about doing the lake ride. Normally we do the lake ride in two days. Ride up to the lake, camp overnight and ride back to the ranch the next day. Well, this year we didn't have time to do that so we did the ride all in one day. It's 31 miles up to the lake from the ranch. I can't remember if that includes back to the ranch or not. Either way, it was a long ride, 11 hours! We would have been able to do it in about 9 or so but certain people that opted to come on the ride were having issues and sort of being "poor sports" to put it nicely. Anyways, after we got back from that ride we went into Armstrong from the rodeo. I don't know anyone who can say they did an 11 hour ride before they came to the rodeo!

I got back home from my vacation on the 7th of September and have been quite busy since. I've been working, and cleaning the house, and taking care of both of the dogs, and of course Rob had decided he needed a new fish tank so now I have 2 tanks to feed. We also have been looking at moving out of the house at the barn, and getting our own place, and I think we have found one! Last night we went to look at an amazingly huge 5 bedroom house, and oddly enough it was the cheapest rental we found. I believe we are going to meet with the couple today and get everything "formal" signed and what not. The place thankfully isn't too far away from the barn, about 20 minutes so it will still be easy enough for me to get to work. That being said, I am looking for a Unit Clerk job in the hospitals here. I love working at the barn, but the dramatics that go on around here are starting to get at me and I feel like I need to find myself a job that actually puts my education to work.

Buddy has been good, he got a new stall sign! Morgan made it for me before she left for Australia. I haven't ridden him much at all sadly. I hopped on him last night after walking him around for about 45 minutes with the fluffly saddle pad he likes, but he is still hesitant to move forwards. He tenses up and just feels like he's ready to pop me off. I'm hoping to try and ride him bareback today, and without a bridle to see if it's the bit hurting his teeth. I know I have to get his teeth checked/done I just cannot afford it at the moment.

I hope everyone has been good, and has been getting a lot of horsey time in.

It will be interesting what you find after you clean those kids up hahaha,Had a lovely weekend with Lilly, lots of riding time, lots of beautiful scenery passed beneath her feet, then after our ride I played with her in the areana , she ran, bucked and snorted and got a really good roll in, weather is cooling down here in OR after what we hope was our last really hot weekend may even get some rain this week , which will help our many wildfires, if I don't get on HC the rest of the week it is because I am doing more transition stuff with the New property owner of the building I take care of and my plate will be full so with that said God Bless and have a beautiful week with your horess love Suzie and Lilly

Hi Miles, here's a vote for ya. Well it was another cool day, only made it up to 64 degrees, but the sun was out and it was nice! Still doing t-shirts so it's not that bad! Stacked wood, and then went to do a repair on Paige's hay bag! Are you familiar with a stitching awl? Well it's got a needle like about 14 gauge or so, drove it right through my index finger on my left hand, in one side and out the other, about 1/2 wide and probably about 3/8 deep! Made it bleed out and then soaked in betadine and then put some antibacterial ointment on it and wrapped it up. Had to go and ride Paige then. She was really good, I think she knew I couldn't feel my finger! Having a heck of a time typing with it! LOL! Turned them all out and stacked more wood. Have almost one cord stacked all ready. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Casey's foot should heal fairly quickly thankfully the screw was only 1 and a 1/4 long so by the time it had gone through his shoe only 1/2 made it into his foot, he was moving fire wood in for winter, Rode Lilly last night bareback, encountered a young turkey stuck between Lilly and the deer fence the turkey freaked out and so did Lilly, it was the closes I have came so far to being dumped, thank goodness I can still get a good grip with my legs, I think she would make a good spinning horse because we went full circle twice !! Love Suz and Lilly

spent 3.5 hours in the ER yesterday evening with my youngest son Casey who's 23 had a screw in his foot, very painful but a really cool looking xray for what it's worth! no riding yesterday maybe this evening I hope ,don't think Lilly minded....had the weirdest thing happen last night, woke up around 10:30 with a really wierd gut feeling that I should pull the goat feeder out of the goat house that Lilly is always sneaking food out of , it has a two key hole shaped cut out face on it, that the goats stick their heads in and they don't get hay all over,so I followed that feeling when I went out she had been eating out of it and there was still a little hay left, she had rotated it so she could get in it better , I don't know why I had such a feeling to remove it come over me ? maybe it was a intuition that if she did it one more time she might get her head stuck in it or what ??? but I followed my gut and took it out, like I said it was the weirdest gut feeling and the fact it woke me up well, Always go with the gut !!......love Suz and Lilly

Hi! Had a good weekend with the oldest daughter and son-in-law. They came up from Tenn to help my husband put on brake lines on the 2003 Chevy half ton we just sold them. Our "used car lot" (driveway) out here is getting emptier finally! Late last year sold a '76 Nova. Then the middle daughter totaled her Grand Prix this past May, and now sold the Chevy! Don't worry, we still have plenty-my truck, his new truck, a car and a van lol! Ya he got a Power Stroke diesel for a better tow vehicle. The one we sold shouldn't be pulling such heavy loads as we were, so it's better for us, and the kids needed a truck that was reliable and not torn up. Of course we gave them a family discount! lol!
Better finish up and get some stuff done around here. going to have a garage sale this Saturday and the next since I was too busy all summer. Hope to make $$$! Left a vote!

We are SUPPOSED to start cooling down tomorrow. Of course, they're predicting rain nearly every day in the 10 day forecast, so didn't see any point in riding today. Noticed some flies on the horses, ck'd my calendar, and they were overdue for fly stuff. Used the weight tape first, they have all lost some, then worked with Nugget on picking up her feet and getting them cleaned out. Cheryl & Cisco

Still working on getting the shed cleaned up. We went through it and saved most of the Christmas ornaments. Sadie had to go through them, too. She kept redumping them out. She found a big red bow she liked and dropped it in the mud. What a character. She's ate up with bug bites, Spraying doesn't really help. I feel so bad for her. Leaving a big hug and a vote.
