How We Met

The gal who brought Kisses, took her in after a lower leg injury went untreated, it is healed, but she has a lump just above the fetlock joint (front). Stepie wanted some of my tack which she had picked out when she picked up Kisses. I did a trade for this box of tack, plus added alot more, because I felt she was worth it. Willow came the day before my husband, Mike, (better know as The Banker) birthday....so I had to do some fast talking to tell him she was his birthday surprise. ....she was a surprise to me too, because she was not suppose to come until after the 4th of July. I hope she likes it here, because I like her and she fits right in..

So glad the baby bunnies and the chicks hatched out. Sure hope you start warming up. Long, long day yesterday. Got the horses up for the farrier, noticed Sunset's L knee was really swollen. Found her in the yard Tues AM, knew she had to have jumped or crashed thru the fence, but didn't notice anything wrong. Crashed was the operative word. She's not at all sore on it. Farrier got everyone trimmed, teeth floated (no sedative needed). Got Sunset's knee hosed down - for a wonder she let me do it. Vet came out and examined her, said no puncture, just an abrasion and to do cold hosings twice a day. the only trouble Sunset gave all day was about her shots. Scott had a long day too, he left to get the car repaired early in the morning and didn't home till 5, with a loner car. Ours still isn't ready.

Hi Willow, here's a vote for ya. WOW that was good that they made it and are doing well. Good thinking sticking them in your bra! LOL! Warm place to help them. You're such a good mommy! Glad that the others are doing well too. WOW frozen solid water buckets, must sure as heck be cold there! Well this weather is making me nuts and my animals! Yesterday snow flurries and hard at times all day long! I personally was still on stall rest after my knee injection so I didn't mind laying around the house! Today, wake up, look outside and my truck and all the roofs are covered in snow! Yep, 1/4 or more of snow! STOP! Overcast and 35 degrees right now, but supposed to go up to about 55 with some sun, we'll see about that. Game plan today is lunge and maybe ride Paige, see how that knee really feels, don't want to push it. Lunge Indy, he got his Rhino/Flu this morning along with a gram of bute. That one usually gives him a stiff neck, so he'll get bute tonight again. Honey is really wanting a walk, so hopefully a short one, once again, pamper that knee yet today. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Please keep the snow. Glad you warmed up the baby rabbits and they made it. Years ago, had a few goat kids that were cold and looked dead till I put them in the oven on warm and they revived.

Hi Willow, here's a vote for ya. Do you believe, I saw on the news last night, snow in the forecast again! even the Channel 2 weather man said, well here we went from Winter, to Spring to Summer, and now it's gonna be fall tomorrow and Winter again Monday! I must have slept a long time to miss all those days in the seasons! LOL! Well Paige is looking good, no swelling or lumps of fluid like last year. Larry thinks that he pulled out the needle before all the vaccine was in the muscle and got it between the skin, like a SQ shot. And that will cause the swelling and abscesses! Indy is doing well, Cubes for am and pm, real hay for lunch. Yesterday was a double treat, pasture for 30 minutes, although the grass isn't really green and growing, then his flake of hay. They loved being out. After running a ton of errands this morning, I'll wash manes and tails for sure. Then turn them out for some pasture time, last for the week! Cold returning tonight and maybe that S word come Monday! Go flippin' figure! On a good note, Beast got washed and a spray coat of Turtle Wax Shine! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Willow, here's a vote for ya. Well looks like HC went back to March when it committed suicide on us! Hopefully this means it's going to stay up and running. WOW vet walks in when I'm just finishing feeding this morning. Here for coggins and spring shots. WOW did Paige go crazy, had to lip chain her! She remembers what happened last year at Marissa's I guess with all her shots and her neck blowing up and wanting no part of it this year! Yet she's fine with me when I give her the monthly Pent-O-San for her joints! So Indy got nasal Strangles and Rabies for now, then in two days another shot and then 2 days after that the last one. Hopefully it's going up to about 60 degrees today and no rain, so they are going out to the pastures! It's not green grass yet, but Larry said that the brown stuff won't hurt them and it'll make them stretch their necks out. Hitting the 70's for Fri and Sat and then dropping again on Sun to the 40's. Stupid weather for sure! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Thanks everyone for your tips on logging in to HC...big help. Thanks also for Susie's birthday wishes. Yesterday was Lucky's birthday, he turned 10. I did bring Susie and Lucky carrots yesterday for their birthdays. We are having some beautiful weather for a change. Hadn't had a chance to ride though, taking care of my mom. She turned 88 on the 10th. She has alzheimer's, but still gets around good and everything. Hope everyone has a great week!

Hi Willow, here's a vote for ya. Yep Google works really fast for me. I'm on in less than a minute. Since Club horse is no longer supported, we'll have to enter this way. Horse Channel itself is open to the public, but no more Club Horse support! WOW you're gonna have lot's of baby bunnies for sure! Well the snows back! Oh yay! NOT! About 4 inches so far and they say will stop in about 5 hours or so! Sure hope so. I have to clean up the place for the equine chiropractor for Paige's yearly adjustment at 5 pm tonight! Weather permitting of course Dr. Carole said. Got the kids lunged yesterday and showmanship for Paige. Indy was on the line this time and Bully ran free! Didn't get a walk in with Honey, still to nasty and lot's of snow and salt on the sides of the road yet. And now even more! Marion and the blonds.

Hi Willow, here's a vote for ya. Nope we didn't lose anything this time. But lot's of other folks did and some are still out from the first storm last Fri! Tons more out now! And yes, they are tracking one for Monday! Where was this in Dec, Jan and Feb when you expect it! Only thing good about it not is, here today, kinda gone by tomorrow. It's melting and compressing pretty fast with the 40 degrees and sunshine! Worked my butt off yesterday clearing the place, then lunge Paige and Indy and then hayed and watered them. It was 4 pm and I finally sat down to lunch. On the go since 10 am. I was beat! Got a lot of errands to run this morning and then home and work the kids! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

We got over 12" but it is so wet and heavy. Shoveled my sidewalk. My arms feel like rubber lol. Cleaning stalls is a piece of cake compared to this snow. Weatherman says couple more hours and inches. How did you make out? I went out to see Jax last night. What a muddy mess. He had it on his belly and his waterproof sheet was very wet. I took it off and put on a cooler and hung it to dry. I scrapped the mud off his belly and legs. Gave him hugs and treats. Picked his stall and visited with one of the other boarders. By the time I got him cleaned and did other things his blanket was dry. Staying home tonight. I will go out tomorrow and make sure he is dry. His new waterproof sheet isn't coming till Monday. Was supposed to be here today. Storm fault :( Vicki & Big Jax

Hi Willow, here's a vote for ya. Well it's semi sunny and going up again to about 55 degrees! Please dry up more out there! But only for Thru, Fri and Sat of a winter mix moving in! Got a lot going on again today! Gotta get more hay to the barn and some bales of bedding. Plus drag the indoor really good, hopefully the big tractor won't leave 6 inch deep tire tracks on the way down there! Lunge and possibly ride Paige again today. Let Indy free play and Bullseye too! Have to run to doggie vet and pick up more Heartworm stuff for Honey. And you know a walk for Honey for sure this afternoon! Marion and the blondes.

Prayers for your Mom. As of this morning, we've had 6", and it's supposed to rain thru Sunday, on and off. Went out to feed this morning during a break, as soon as I got to the barn it came down in buckets. Waited about 10 minutes till it eased off again and got everyone fed. Our poor little dry creek is within a few inches of going over the bridge.

Weather is going you know where in a handbasket. Another 2 1/2" in the rain gauge this AM, and been raining all day. May be getting snow tonight. Had to get Jazz up and stalled this AM, she was pretty soaked and it was right around freezing. She dried off after a few (unhappy) hrs, and got her blanketed and turned back out. Dreading feeding tonight and in the morning, I'm just gonna get soaked. (I didn't blanket her last night because it was nearly 70)

Monsoon season is starting, place looks like a swamp. As of this AM, 1 1/2", then rain all afternoon. Did get the pallets up and swept up all the mouse droppings, old feed, and chewed up bits of feed bags. Got the feed unloaded and it's all in steel garbage cans, no more free lunch for the mousies.

Rain arrived about 1:30. Been down pouring ever since. Went to the barn about 9am Sarah is very ill so we all pitched in and got the morning chores done. Changed Jax blanket to a lighter one. They say it may hit 60's tomorrow. But that is for Albany which is an hour away. Sometimes our temps are the same and sometimes cooler. I just know the rain was cold today. I too worry about colic. Hard knowing what to put on them. Rain all tomorrow. At least it somewhat warm. Vicki & Big Jax

Hi Willow, here's a vote for ya. WOW two more truck loads of wood, yay team! Wish I could get another cord somewhere! So the G-hens are kinda be bad about things right now, not fun! Glad to hear that the little one in the basement is coming around and should be fine to go out again. Well the rains got here about 1 pm and haven't stopped yet! But it's melting it all off, snow and ice! SO yay! And Tuesday we just could hit a high of 60 degrees, to fast and sudden, worry about colic with those drastic temp changes. Went to town and did a few errands this morning. Then got home and brought in enough wood for the day and night, knowing it was going to pour! Did get Paige to the indoor and lunge and do showmanship. Indy got to free play and run like the wind! On the way back to the barn it was really raining hard, so Bullseye didn't get out to play! Tomorrow! Hay and Fresh water for them and then lunch for me. Honey didn't get a walk today, sorry girl! Marion and the blondes.

It's about an hour round trip, which is why I buy a month's worth at a time. Glad you got everyone situated. Nothing but a few light sprinkles today. Could only find one steel garbage can in town, they're are supposed to get more in the end of the week. Horrible winds this AM, coming back on the X-way some poor guy was hauling a tag a long travel trailer and it was swaying big time. Supposed to have TS the next few days need to make a hay run soon. Saw dandelions blooming, so spring is almost here.

Glad the funeral was good, sorry Dominic lost, but even getting to sectionals is an achievement. Rainy day, nearly 3/4" of badly needed rain. Will have to hit the feedstore tomorrow, running low and don't want to run out, in case the creek floods. Will have to pick up hay either tomorrow or Tues. Have the trash out and ready, Don't care how early they come in the morning.

Glad Precious is doing well. That is so cute that she will jump up and turn on the light. I have one cat that will fetch about as long as you will throw something for her, she gets a treat everytime she brings a toy back. A bit of rain this Am, not even a tenth of an inch. Grass is starting to green up a bit.

Hi Willow, here's a vote for ya. So does Mickey live close by that you can go and take care of his calves too? Glad that you got over to mom's again. So do you think that the Bunny will have a litter? Always best to think yes and hay is warm for her. Well nasty rainy and then got really windy later on! Did in between the break in the rain get another 4 bales of hay to the barn and a bag of shavings for Bully! Went down my usual time to start to work them, and it was getting windy as heck out. So forwent the idea of saddling up Paige and just went with lunging and showmanship. Glad I did cause the gusts of winds were really bad! Just finished up with her and was getting Indy ready to take out and down came the rains like a giant bucket of water! So he never made it to the indoor. Rain and winds were horrible all afternoon and the temps are dropping! Going down into the teens they are saying tonight. Just lovely cause this will be a frozen mess of ice and mud out there! Oh the joys of winter! NOT! Marion and the blondes.

Glad you warmed up some. T-shirt weather today, 76 (remember, we can as high as 118 in the summer). Then cooling off. Need to hit the fed store tomorrow, won't get too much until I pick up a couple of garbage cans. I desperately need to hit Wally World, haven't been in months and will pick up a couple of metal garbage cans.

Glad Mikey's tests came back OK, and that Precious is doing well after being spayed. Day started out kind of miserable, heavy fog and drizzle, then sun came out around noon and it warmed up to 69, supposed to be mid 70's tomorrow. Was so nice to be outside without a jacket, I'm sure Jazz was glad to her blanket off. Having trouble with my feed, I've stored bags on pallets for years and never had any trouble, now the mice are tearing into the bags. It's such a long drive to the feedstore that carries the Thrive that I try to pick up a month's worth at a time, may have to invest in more garbage cans to store it.

Hi Willow, here's a vote for ya. WOW almost 96, that's a good long life! So you just check for winds more or less everyday and don't worry about how cold it is out there! I guess it don't matter, you still have to go out and do chores, we all do! So yes, they have sand in Tractor Supply, but only in 50 lb bags and at the price of almost what I pay per ton for my indoor arena. And sand don't stick well on solid sheet ice that goes downhill! So it was the owner of the Hardware store that raised his prices, he didn't care about anything more than making money! Shame on him! Well we got beautiful strong sunshine with a high of 35 degrees! Sure helped to melt off a lot more of that ice! I'd say the walk way to the barn is now 80% clear! YAY! From the barn to indoor is all clear now. Just out to the water dumping area is a big mess yet, but that's in the shade! So hopefully Wed with temps hitting the mid 40's and sun again, that will deplete a little more. Got the kids to the indoor for exercise! Paige was like BatChit Crazy on the line! Boy did she throw some good bucks in! Bet if felt good to her! Indy started on the line, then went and got free lunged! He too was full of himself. Bullseye was quiet and I had to chase him with the lunge whip! LOL! Lazy Ass! Literally! LOL! Then they got hay and fresh water for lunch. Honey and I got a little walk in, only about 1/2 mile total. But still felt good! Marion and the blondes.

Wow, nearly 96. Sou7nds like a long lived family. Scott's feeling as bit better now that he's been assured by one retired nurse, his PCP, and a cardiology nurse that everything is WNL. No rain for us, just a bit of fine mist this AM, but rain every day in the 10 day. Wondered why we didn't get trash pickup last week, Scott called and they came by Wed. They have been picking up between noon and 3, yesterday I saw the truck go by at 7:45. Guess they have changed the route, so will have to be sure to get it out on Sunday.

Way to go, Dominic! Sorry for your loss, the flu has been bad this year. Scott has been worried about a small lump (and the bruising) in his groin. Told him that it is probably normal after catheterizing it twice, but he did get an apt with his PCP today. Dr. Hines said he thought it was normal, but to call the cardiologist - they said it was common and should go away in a week or 2.

Hi Willow, here's a vote for ya. Oh I wanted to so kick him in his butt! But I can't get my leg up the high, he's 6'7"! WOW Dominic is doing great in his wrestling! Sorry about your mom sister passing! Well not much more melted overnight even though the temps were in the high 40's! They did drop to 34 at morning, so that kinda froze it all up again! Spread another bag of ice melt down by the barn to the indoor, but as of 1 pm not enough melted off to get them to the indoor for exercise. So got another bag and laid that down again! Plus had to put some on the walk way down to the barn! Sun finally came out, but not long enough to make a big difference in melting it! And tonight it's going down to 15 degrees, so it'll freeze back up! GRRR! But made the best of it and got Bullseye all trimmed up, done for another 8 weeks or so! Marion and the blondes.

Cold for us this morning. 24 with a feels li8ke of 12. A bit of sleet midmorning, but not bad. Warmed up to 39 this afternoon, so got everyone's water tubs topped off, Jazz is snug in blanket, the "herd" got extra hay.
