His first time out on the trail with someone riding him!
Our first overnight trail ride up to the lake and back in the summer of 2012. Not only was he well behaved, it was one of the best parts of my trip up to the ranch that summer.

My Horse's Favorite Treat: Likits, Uncle Jimmy's Licky Things, Alfalfa cubes, oats, and horse cookies, really any kind of treat!

My Horse's Favorite Things To Do: He loves to be groomed, and to play with babies along with the other horses. He likes to play a game when you try to catch him and not come inside. He especially likes to play this game when I am on my days off and travel into the city so the other girls at the barn have to leave him outside until I get home!

Pet Peeves: Bugs!

My Horse's motto: Never give up.

How We Met

My aunty got him as a payment for 2 kids for one of her kids camps she had in Alberta. She then moved to her ranch in BC, where I went for the summer before I started grade 10. I seen Buddy and fell in love with him and claimed him as mine, and no one said otherwise, as we seemed to have a special connection. He was officially given to me as a gift for helping out with all of the camps over the years and as a graduation gift in April of 2011. Buddy finally came home to me in Alberta on October 13th 2013..

Thursday was beautiful. Lots of mosquitoes. I put apple cider vinegar in Sadie's water daily. Seems to keep them away from her water. Looking forward to cooler, drier weather. Hugs and a vote.

ONLY IN CANADA, EH...
We really have had some crazy weather this summer, I'm sure I mentioned it before, I know everyone is afraid of something, my thing is STORMS, can't explain it, it comes over me like a wave, terrible anxiety, uneasiness, I pace, I can't relax, once we had a tornado lock down at work, it was not a pretty site, everyone I work with is now aware of my phobia. Today is suppose to be nice, as long as we ride around the puddles we will be OK. We left a vote, Love Donna Lee

Oh, I'm just so happy-I FINALLY got to ride today-yay!! It's been well over two months since I really rode (don't count the 3 times I jumped on bareback for 10 mins). Not saying the horses were happy though. Bub decided to spook when he got bored, and started jigging around instead of going in a straight line all the while grunting and squealing when cantering. A couple of victory bucks after going through the ground poles grid then he settled, just had to get it out of his system. Not bad at all for no groundwork, or lunging all summer. Ella baby was perfect except swinging too wide at the turns almost causing my leg to rub the fence. Needless to say, my weekend is going great! Now....back to work! Thanks for not forgetting me in my workaholic absence! Hugs and carrots for all!!

Bad storm came through. Heavy rain and wind. Lost one of my sheds and a tree. What a mess. Power was out from 5:30pm until 1:40am. Sadie's fine. She's free until her corral dries up. Need to kiss the hay good bye, because it's suppose to storm all weekend. Got to buy a container for hay. Hope you're all well. Love and a vote.

LONG WEEKEND, YEAH...
Good Morning, I had lots of OT this week, my hands are killing me...I'm still playing catch up from last winter when Trevor was with us, I'm not complaining but, we heat with propane and it was the coldest winter in 22 years, plus propane prices went up 40% plus Trev was cold and so we kept the house warm for him, as a result we were $1206 over budget on heat. It has to be paid by September 1, so the new budget can start, do I need OT?? Yes I do. Charlie and Sterly are good, we will have a nice ride today, this is a long weekend, yippee. we voted, Love Donna Lee

Hi Buddy & Jasmine, So sorry for being offline a lot lately. The past two weeks have been pretty busy. I had a sinus infection which caused me not to even see Koot for a week which was an absolute bummer and because of that I won't be able to compete in the barrel race August 30th since Koot hasn't been exercised enough. I'm pretty bummed about that, but I don't want to chance hurting him. I took Koot for a ride Sunday and then a short trail last night with my pup, Tig. They had a great time. How are things with you? Have you gotten horsey time in? Koot and I still plan to run for October HOTM so please vote for us :) thanks! Voted. XOXO Danya and Koot

Come visit me, Kootenai *Please vote Koot 161648 for Oct. HOTM*.

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!

Hi Buddy, here's a vote for ya. I'm still trying to catch up on sleep and start my clean up to put the trailer up for the winter. It's great having Paige home again, love seeing that pretty face when I walk in the barn. She really enjoyed her time out in the pasture today. What a big show!!! OMG, we were in some deep classes, packed with trainers and super good amateurs. Most of my classes and Marissa's and Laurel's one class were about an average of 13 to 19 horses in each class. And top of the line show horses! We pinned for the most part, but did get the gate a few times. It was tough competition, I'm not kidding. Like being at the Congress almost! But we came home with a lot of state points to give me good year end money at least. Paige also showed Friday in the Green Trail and in the Senior Trail. Placed under all three judges in both classes, that we were very happy about. So all in all, I'm very happy with how this complete show season has gone with my new trainer! Not letting her go! LOL! Marion and the blondes.

HI
Wow, The last time I was on to blog was in June! Boy have I been busy. Let's see if I can remember everything that's been going on lately.

1st: I've added several new categories for my supervisor duties! I'm now overseeing all of the horse breeds and pasture management areas. I'm going to add all of the Equestrian sports cat's as well.

2nd: I'm hunting a new paying job as my supervisory role is volunteer and I'm not paid for that job. I'm applying at some banks and credit unions near my house. If I have no luck with those places then there are some secretarial positions and paralegal positions open. I would be looking for V.A work, but right now they are only hiring techs and I do not have my boards as of yet.

3rd: I'm going to head back to college to get my Veterinarian Technicians degree and boards. I'm also looking at getting a degree in equine nutrition, might add a basic farriers class to that, and maybe a class for saddle fitting and business management. Not 100% sure what all I want to do yet or how much all of this will cost, but I can take it one step at a time.

4th: My Mema (age 84..Shhh, don't tell her I told you her age. ;D ) Slipped and injured her knee and might have to have it replaced. Nobody is happy about this as see wants to go back to working, she hates being at home with nothing to do.

5th: I completely threw my back out three different times in the past month and a half and have been utterly miserable. I haven't been able to ride at all, I can barely walk, but I am getting better slowly.

6th:I had Shawn's youngest son James for four weeks during the summer. Shawn had to work and I was home anyways with my bad back, so I kept him. It was just like being a nanny again, except he didn't go home at night, LOL. (There was no escape! No escape I tell you! XD)

7th:We lost one of old ferals. Snippy passed away a few weeks ago, leaving us with one much younger cat to care for. I miss Snippy, he was a good old guy.

8th: I'm incredibly tan, I'm typically so pale and pasty white that you could call me translucent! Not any more, LOL. The perks of living in a coastal town I guess, even an equestrians legs will get tanned down here, LOL.

9th: Although I am still on HC, I am now on Horseforum.com and chronicle of the horse forum daily as it's more interactive and I enjoy helping out and answering questions. If any of y'all are on there, feel free to look me up and send a friend request. I'm known as Horseychick87 on both forums. :)

I hope everyone is doing great and hope to hear from you soon. Lots of hugs, love and votes.

LEFT A VOTE, THANKS FOR YOURS
Yesterday was a better breathing day for my Sterly Girly. She has had this issue forever, actually she got a lung virus as a two year old when she raced. It was bad enough to end her racing career, she was pretty good, from a very good bloodline. But as Dr. Cook said it was never going to be a problem for what I wanted her to do. As a younger girl, she was a bit "weazy", but as a "old girl" it is down right difficult to breath, as always, she never complains. I swear if all horses were like her, everyone would have a horse.

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.

SOAKED SUPERVISORS IN ALS ICE BUCKET CHALLENGE
Good morning my friends, all is well here in hot, humid Ontario. This is pretty much the worst couple of weeks of the summer, it is OK for me, but poor Sterly Girly has such a hard time breathing, inside with her fan and I actually gave her a couple pumps of Ventipulimin yesterday. My last week of vacation is in September, we love early fall. Much nicer for riding. Have a great weekend, we left a vote. Love Donna Lee

FANCY'S PERCEPTIONS:
"Horses first, The rest Later!"

Fancy leaves a vote for you this morning.

Fatima has gone to a home where she will be working with teenagers that are learning to ride. The lady spent an evening with us to evaluate Fatima and this lady saw potential in Fatima. The next day, the lady came back for Fatima. Fatima did not want to go. I called when I thought they arrived home to check on her and Fatima was fine.
I did not have the same feelings of betrayal with Fatima as I felt when I watched Trigger leave. I felt happy Fatima would be getting some attention. I still miss Trigger but I am happy he is really loved by the small children. I have an invitation to visit him. I think I want to go one day during his lessons. I would love to see him with the children.

Have a safe and blessed weekend.
Love Fancy and Frances

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.
