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!

♡ I was a very lazy lady yesterday. I pretty much just rested. I haven’t had a vacation sense February and it is surely getting to me. I can’t take any time off until after the 19th of September. I fed yesterday morning and just gave everyone a big hug and didn’t get back out until after 5 pm. I turned them out to graze awhile before evening feeding time. Here is a hug, love & a Wednesday vote :)

The weather is nice, The rain here has dried up. Bugs are crazy, though. Put ant bait around the outside of Sadie's corral and put her nosy, into everything butt, back in. She's a busy one. She got into the other shed and drug out the containers Austin put in there. He took them out of the tack shed to make room to store hay. She watches everything and waits for a chance to plunder. Lots of love and a vote.

Because of the flooding north of us, the river, close to my house, flooded, Tuesday night. I didn't see the water until I accidentally drove through it. Car's been fine until I drove to work, Friday. After I parked the car and went in, the car caught fire and is totalled. Devastated, heartbroken, but okay. A couple of people think it may have been a short in the wiring. Thank God that Austin was able to pick me up. Car's still in the parking lot at work. Rick won't get home until Wednesday. He's on vacation. Sending love as always and a vote. p.s. No word on the horses that were washed away in the flood.

Glad to hear you're getting some rain. We may get some next week. Cisco's pastern looked good this AM when I changed the bandage. Worked Nugget a bit, applied fly stuff to all 3, then used the weight tape, all 3 are losing weight, finally. Then went on line and ordered body clippers for Nugget, more Freedom 45 (it's on sale) and ordered the Equi-Spirit ball I've been promising Cisco ever since I found out he misses his ball - this one is supposed to LAST.

We went for a ride last night, poor Miss Lilly got stung by some bee's, on the tongue, lip and leg, a friend said put some peppermint tea 4 bags of it in with her grain at feed time, it will act as antihstamine, she looked pretty good this morning at breakfast time. Suz and Lilly

We've had a lot of rain and flooding here in Arizona. We're okay here, but some towns, north of Phoenix, weren't so lucky. New River, Arizona, was hit so hard, pets and horses were washed away. I saw, on the news, that 2 of the horses drowned and women on horseback were searching for the other 2. I haven't heard if they were found, yet. So heartbreaking. Sadie's fine. We've had rain, hard Thursday morning, but no flooding at my house. Sadie's out of her corral, because it's slippery and mucky. To know Sadie, is to know she's happy. She was at the backdoor begging for carrots. Of course, she got some. Hope you're all doing well. Leaving love and a vote.

Here's a vote from Buddy! Yet again, sorry we haven't been on in about a week, it seems the only time that we have to get on is when I have my days off! I've added some new pictures of Buddy, and one of his tail. I love the colours in it, and I've been putting MTG in it lately to try and get it to grow since he has such a sucky tail (to put it nicely.)

I haven't ridden him in his normal saddle pad yet, but I'm going to do that tomorrow and see how he does. The barn owner has her last day of her kids summer camp tomorrow so hopefully I can manage to ride outside while all the kids are riding inside or are on lunch, just in case Buddy pulls some crazy stunt! If he his still a bit off I am going to try and take the saddle off and just ride him bareback. If that doesn'e help him then I will have to call Dr. Herbers when I get back from my vacation to get his teeth checked and floated. I know I need to get them done sooner rather than later as when I asked my aunty if they had ever been done she said they had not as they had always been good when she had checked them. And of course if having his teeth doesnt help then I will move on to try a chiropractor, as one of the other boarders at the barn plans on having one come out and said that if need be she will let them know there may be another horse that needs to be done. Hopefully it doesnt come to that!

I leave for my vacation on Sunday morning, but I should still be able to make it on to vote every few days at least! I'm bringing my laptop as I never really leave home for an extended period of time without it. I may be blogging later during that time tho. As much as I am excited to go, I am not at all ready to pack to go. I'm sure I'll forget something that I want to bring. As long as I remember to bring my saddle!

I hope everyone is doing well and the weather has cooled down and you can all enjoy some not so hot horsey time! I also hope the bugs are not as bad for you as they are for me currently! And here's hoping my ride goes well tomorrow!

-Buddy & Jasmine

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS:
Here is a good night vote for you.

I have had a lot of people interested in Trigger this week. I have not been in the house much. That is why I have not been on the computer.

The events of 8/12/2014:
A kind lady adopted Trigger to help out at her children's riding facility. I am happy and sad at the same time. She led him to her trailer and he tried to get back to me. I felt so bad. I felt like I was betraying him. She led him to the trailer and he looked in and then looked back for me. Wow. He has never paid me any attention. He only loved after my little Cowboy till now. I felt so bad. I told her just ask him to go on, he will. He always tries to do what you ask him. She kindly asked him and he went. She tied him up and the stallion divider was closed. Trigger watched out of the side vents and neighed back to us as I watched him disappear. I turned to go back into the yard and I had to stop and try not to cry. But I cried anyway. I will miss that little guy. The best horse I have ever been around. Well, now he has the chance to help some wonderful children learn to love. I am happy, and still sad.
It has been a hectic week for us.

I have two people interested in Fatima. Hopefully someone will want to adopt her and work with her.

I believe I will be freed up by Thursday and be back online.
Have a blessed day.
Love from Fancy and Fatima and Frances

We brought our slant load trailer to pick Spangle up. A little excitement on the way, we had a blowout on the trailer! Thankfully we didn’t have Spangle yet. We changed the tire and went and got Spangle. When we arrived, Spangle looked a little chubbier than he did before(He was chubby before too), but that was ok. They said he was a great loader. They were wrong. It took a little while to get him in the trailer, but we did it.

I spent some time with Fancy this morning. She does have a sweet attitude. We didn't do any thing. We just spent a little time being together in the yard.

Light rains have moved in for the remainder of this day. Our weather forecast includes rain for the next few days. We shall see how that goes.

Have a happy and fun filled weekend.

We are leaving for a camping trip this afternoon. Our family rarely goes camping so it should be fun.
Sierra has been doing really well with her training. I have been working on loping her in circles and figure eights. She isn't nearly as lazy now and is much more responsive to what I ask her to do. I used to have to work to keep her loping in a circle but now she will lope for as long as I want until I ask her to slow down. Voice commands are coming in handy now, sometimes she will go into a lope just by me saying lope and she stops when I say whoa and sit back. She is not always consistent but she is getting better and better. I have been doing more ground work with Cherokee and it has helped him to be more responsive when I'm riding him. The little girls haven't been able to come for lessons the last couple weekends and I wont be here this weekend but hopefully they can come next Saturday. We still have not had any super hot this summer. Upper 70s/lower 80s for highs and the mornings and evenings are usually cool and beautiful. We haven't gotten very much rain and we are pretty dry.
Have a great weekend!

Yes, sounds like your brother was VERY lucky. Glad your knee is better, hope Spock's leg is going to be OK. 103 today, horses got a big chunk of ice in their water this afternoon. I've checked Nugget several times, but she seems OK with the heat. Been off and on cloudy with a good breeze. Kind of wanting to use the ice blanket, but won't as long as she's comfortable.
