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..

Hi Willow, here's a vote for ya. Okay I know that Mickey's heart problem is serious, but you cracked me up with the stop leak radiator stuff! WOW you're having a heat wave out there! It's coming our way for a couple of days too! Well started out at 08 degrees and made it up to 36 up here on the mountain top! Sun didn't come out till about 2:30 pm, but then it warmed up some of the ice and I chopped it out of the driveway and by the barn! Ran a lot of errands this morning. Even took Beast to the coin truck wash and got all the road salts off her! Picked up grain for Indy, Alfalfa pellets for Paige and lot's of dog food for Honey! Got Paige lunged and did 5 minutes of showmanship. Then free lunged Indy and Bullseye. Gave them fresh water and hay for lunch and finally at 2:45 got to have my lunch. Then Honey wanted out, so we went and she ran and ran in the snow! She's such a little nut case in the fresh soft snow! Love that pup! Marion and the blondes.

I'm back!
Nothing prettier than fresh snow (or ice) glittering in the sun. Sounds like the Dr. needs to be a little more specific about what's going on with Mikey. It has been cold here since last Thurs. Tuesday was the worst. Got a bit of sleet Mon night with a dusting of snow, with the WC the temp here was around zero. Old Jazz has had her blanket on since Thurs, really warming up this weekend (into the 60's) so will take it off. Getting so tired of hauling hot water out, today was the first morning in nearly a week I haven't had to. Still have the gremlin in the tailgate, had to unlock it at the feedstore, then unlock when I got home. Have had that truck a little of 5 yrs and have NEVER had that problem before. Actually thinking about taking it off.

Hi Willow, here's a vote for ya. Oh I bet the house will smell great with the baking of cookies going on! So the ride was nice with the trees all frosted over and glistening in the sunshine, bet it was pretty! Well for snowing for over 29 hours, thank goodness it was the light stuff and not coming down hard and fast! So our total was 7 inches! It stopped by noontime and of course the winds picked up then too! So the 24 F felt like 14 F and now the drifts are building up! Worked the snow blower first and got all down by the barn and indoor done, oops forgot to do a path past the gate to the manure pile! Oh well, that's what Thursday is for! LOL! Then maned the tractor and got 3/4 of the driveway done. Called it quits then, was frozen and cold! Got Honey and we went out to the barn and gave the kids lunch of hay and fresh water. Honey has a 15 X 25 puppy park in the back yard for potty time! Going down to the single digits tonight, oh joy! Might have to run the heat so those wall fins don't freeze up since the wind is blowing from that direction! Hope this stops soon and spring comes early! Marion and the blondes.

Hiya!
Hiya Willow! Leaving a vote for you guys! It's been cold here as well. We only got one snow storm so far so we've been pretty lucky except for the cold. We had two nice days that were in the 50's, so that was nice but a tease. I can't wait till Spring!! Anyways have a good night and hope all is well.

Hi Willow, here's a vote for ya. UHM, not sure I like the dr. that said let's wait IT out! What the heck kind of doctor is he! Yep I do agree that with the super cold, Indy's brain is being affected as he's never a bully but has been on the zero days! He's got major brain freeze going on! Well only 08 this morning and a high of 18 F this afternoon. But the sun was out nice and strong, so made it feel a tad bit warmer. Indoor was at 30 degrees, so it was work time for the kids! Paige got lunged and a showmanship workout. Indy got lunged. Bullseye got to run free. Then it was lunch of fresh warm water and hay for them. Then football for me! All I can say is, so far with the 4 games this weekend, only one of my favorites has won. Last game is on now and the Saints are taking a beating! Oh well! Glad I don't bet money on these things! LOL! Marion and the blondes.

Hi Willow, here's a vote for ya. Just to let ya know, I heard from Cheryl and Cisco and they are out of gigs on the internet, so she'll be back when it rolls over again. Well we got warmer today, high of 46, but with no sun it didn't feel that warm! But I got a lot done outside. 3 more bales of hay to the horse barn. Big tractor down and moved the manure pile back and then got into the indoor and dragged it really good. Horses all enjoyed their play time in the nice soft sand. Indy must have rolled half a dozen times! He loves to roll. Honey and I got in a mile walk too! Then later on, met up with someone who brought my winter riding On Course heavy English pants from back when. Another item sold that no longer fit me! Cash is good! LOL! Now for tomorrow and the heavy rains! YUK! Marion and the blondes.

Today is nice but tomorrow night is will start turning cold again. We will need to put the blankets back on the horses. The freezing temps will be around the next four or five days. I worry about these quick changes in temperatures too. I have four cats that I kinda adopted...so I had to put in a kitty door so they could come in from out the cold. We had a stray mama cat that had three kittens in April. We have been feeding them ever since, so they just hung around here. The kitty door is in the wash room, so we keep them in there. I am getting the two males fixed on the 25th. Then next month the two females will be fixed. Don't want anymore kittens. Stay warm everyone! I can't wait till spring! lol

Glad to hear you got to se Sun and warmed up a bit. Glorious day here, temp got up to 58. Buddy cat was hilarious, he curled up under Jazz's blanket most of the day. Old Kitty got a good report from the vet, his bloodwork is pretty much back to normal and he's been a bit more lively the past few days.

Just want to wish you all a Happy New Year! We are finally defrosting down here. Today we had rain...but it is much warmer now. I am praying for all of you that are experiencing those single digit temps and below. My herd is doing well. They have had their blankets on and staying warm in the barn. We were able to remove the blankets yesterday. Hope you all get some warm weather soon. Take care and enjoy your week.

Hi Willow, here's a vote for ya. That's great that you hit a high of 20, must have felt like summer to ya! Sun is always a good thing, just those winds need to go away for sure! Yep, Mo has a good layer of fat on him, he eats good and don't run much during the winter months, so he usually beefs up, like a few pounds for him! Chunky little Monkey! LOL! WOW started out at -04 with chill factor of -14! But mother sun was out and it warmed up to 15 F degrees and the wind died out! So I was out there on the tractor and cleared the rest of the drifts from the driveway and made my wall! Then I got Paige and Indy lunged in the indoor, it was 30 in there, nice actually! Bullseye got to free play in there. Then fresh warm water and hay for the kids. Honey was out a few times and ran the back yard where there aren't any drifts. And yes, Mo came up to the house last night! I actually carried him up from the barn when I finished chores. He spent some time with us and then I moved him to downstairs again. He has a little box down there and water. Although this morning he was drinking and picking at Honey's food in the kitchen again. She just looks at him and don't chase him at all, even when he eats her food. She's made such a huge turnaround in the last 15 months! Marion and the blondes.

As the saying goes, "nothing between Tx and Canada but a few bob wire fences and half of them are down" Loving the warmer temps. Would adore going up to the UP in the summer, but just not practical with all the beasts. Want thimberel berries and pasties!

Hi Willow, here's a vote for ya. Yep I always wondered if they get brain freeze from the cold air like we get brain freeze from eating ice cream to fast! Well we had sunshine and it got up to 23/24 after starting out at about 04 at 6 am and 08 when I fed at 7:30 am. So took another load of 3 bales to the horse barn. And Honey got to run the back yard and down and around the barn. She had fun. And don't ya think, Mo scooted out of the horse barn! He was out about an hour and follow me back in when I finished lunging Paige. Then I lunged Indy. Bullseye got to go out in a pasture, he's got long thick hair, so he was fine! Went to bring him in and there goes Mo out again! So I watered, hayed and cleaned up, still no Mo! I was cold by then, so hit the nice hot shower and defrosted! Don't ya think, I now see him by the barn! I'm not going out, I get sick very easily from going out after a shower. So I just opened the kitchen door and called him, he actually came up to the house and ran up the stairs and inside, right down into the Rec Room. So now we'll see what happens in half an hour when I take Honey down there and get ready to go and feed the horses. She's never seen him in her house before! Hope the fur don't fly! LOL!

Plugged the deicer into the top half of the GFI outlet, it's working. Had to haul out hot water this afternoon, will have to in the morning. Then warming up into the 40's tomorrow afternoon, thankfully. Usually our cold weather doesn't last too long.

Had some internet problems yesterday, so couldn't get on much. We don't do anything for New year's. Misereable morning for us, 15 with a feels like of 4 when I went out to feed. Deicer wasn't working, but was able to break the ice in all the tubs so everyone could drink. Only supposed to get to 27, but it's sunny so maybe the outside water will thaw out enough to fill the water tubs. Warming back up Weds.

Hi Willow, here's a Happy Year's Eve vote for ya. So glad that you have both the pellet stove going and the outside big one. I thought Mike was going to look into what was wrong with that over the summer? Had to have the tractor plugged in yesterday to start, about 4 hours on the heater. Trucks been plugged in all day today! Well not a darn thing got done today other than plugged in the Beast to keep the engine warm. Went down at about 1:30 and gave fresh water and hay to the horses and picked stalls. Even Honey didn't want to run in the snow, it was bitter cold and windy as heck! Right now it's 03 degrees with a windchill of -06 degrees! Going out to feed in about 20 minutes. Hope we make it back to the warm house! Marion and the blondes.

Spent 4 yrs in Houghton, Kewanaw Penn at Mich Tech, studying forestry. Foggy day. Deicer hooked up, changed pens, Cisco and Sunset are in the small pen with the deicer, that way I'll only have to haul hot water out for 2 horses. Jazz is snug in her blanket, it fits to perfection. Like it much better than the Weatherbeater, more adjustable.

Hi Willow, here's a vote for ya. Buffy I don't know how you can handle it! 4 or 5 days now and I'm ready to leave town! But seems like no one has warm weather! Global warming my butt! Well woke up to 9 degrees and it did make it up to about 17/18 with the sun out! But when I went to leave to go to Tractor Supply, Beast said heck no, I've sat two days in this single digits temp and I'm not happy! Would crank over and not fire up, so had to for the first time since I have her, pull the plug out and use the electric block heater on her! 30 minutes later was a good start and ran smooth. First stop, Ford's for some anti-gel additive for Beast! Put that right in and then to Tractor Supply. Got home and went and lunged Paige and then Indy. Was about 27/28 in the indoor, not to bad! At least no wind in there! Long term forecast is for about at least 10 more days of this! CRAP! And snow in the forecast for tomorrow, they say a couple of inches, we'll see, they've been wrong on everything else! LOL! Marion and the blondes.

Hi Willow, here's a vote for ya. Don't know how you can handle this cold! We're not even near the temps you get to and I'm frozen! Couldn't live out there by you for all the money in the world! Bring on the spring time! Well not impressed with the temps at all! A mere 18 degrees this morning and the high was only 20 degrees! Not much of a wind and the sun was out, but didn't melt the ice or snow! Did get the kids to the indoor for play time, and yes Paige actually ran and played on her own for the first time ever! I think she really enjoyed herself as she was bucking and prancing around with the tail up! Indy played with his big ball. Honey ran and played in the back yard and down and around the barn! Indoor was about 32 degrees at least. I had on my BOT long johns and my fleece lined jeans and still had cold legs! I hate winter! And tomorrow and the rest of the week, luck if we see about 14 degrees for a high! Make it stop! Marion and the blondes.

Glad you didn't get a lot of snow. Sounds like you made out big time at Connections. Ch8illy and windy today and the next 2 days, then 3 days of rain. Did get hay picked up yesterday, but got home and the dang tailgate wouldn't open. Scott tossed the bales out, I got them into the barn.

Hi Willow, here's a vote for ya. Glad that it only turned out to be a dusting of snow! And that the temps are staying civil for right now. So you think with the other two dogs up stairs, the tree will be a target! Probably right for sure! Well not the nicest day out there today! But at least no icy mix! But not above 36 with nasty dampness all day long. And tonight overnight the rains move in for sure! So got the kids to the indoor for free time. Poor Paige, still don't know what to do with herself. So I wound up walking around and we played follow the mommy around! Indy of course loves to run and kick up his heels! Then did lunch for them. Honey and I did brave a walk, little over a mile, but I had my toasty toes on in my boots and a scarf to cover my mouth and help with breathing in warm air instead of the cold nasty breeze! Rain tomorrow, so who knows what I'll be doing! Marion and the blondes.
