Still battling this cold. The worst of it is over. I didn't ride. It was late when Stephanie made it over. Almost dark. When Stephanie rode Sadie, I went inside, because I was too much of a distraction. Sadie behaves much better when she doesn't have an audience. She concentrates on what she's suppose to be doing. As soon I walked outside, she tried to come to me. Stephanie said she's a momma's girl. I say she's spoiled. Lol. Have a blessed weekend. Love hugs and a vote.

☆ As I have mentioned before, I have learned so much with Deacon and of course Whiskey & Rocket. Each horse has brought knowledge to me that has its own value. I think we all carry a special place for that 1st horse that is hard to describe ♥ the 1st year ½ I went trail riding, I experienced penning & cutting cows but my favorite has always been trail riding. Have a great Thursday ~Whinny’s & hugs ☆

♡ When I got Deacon he had previously pastured on Bill’s brothers property with 3 other horses. All 3 others horses were taken in to have sarcoid tumors removed. Deacon had a small knot on his left flank that I had Doc Edward’s check out. He said to leave it alone until it started to change or he could remove for cosmetic reasons if I wanted. I choose to wait. I don’t show my horses and I wasn’t interested giving Deacon Surgery after just newly purchasing him. It didn’t bother him either. Several years ago I did have it removed. It started to change. Doc had learned how to also prevent future ones as well. This method is to take a small piece of the tumor and put it in the neck area. You can’t even tell where the cut on his flank was now. In his knot he actually had 2 small tumors in it.
Equine Sarcoid:

Sarcoid tumors are the most common skin tumor in horses. These tumors are unique in that they are the product of infection with Bovine Papilloma Virus (BPV), which is probably transmitted by flies. Many horses can be infected with this virus, but no two horses will express it in the same way. Tumor appearance and size can vary greatly between horses, and even on the same horse; similarly, response to different treatments can be highly variable. Tumors can originate at the site of a wound or tack rub, and originally present as a wound that isn't healing; on the lower limbs, they also are often mistaken for proud flesh. Though sarcoids are the most common skin tumor of horses, they are also one of the most misunderstood maladies of horses.

(}—{) We ended up getting a light sprinkle Thursday evening. After I went to Tractor Supply & the grocery store Lizzy came over and we had a really nice ride on Rocket and Deacon. Whiskey is at the equine hospital staying a few days. He scratched his eye somehow. I really don’t know how or why he does that so much but the other 2 never do???? Any way Doc says he is doctoring it 2x’s a day with an antibiotic and giving banamine 1 time a day. Cliff may pick him up today or Monday. It is so hard putting meds in their eyes. I can do once its under control. I just can’t stand to touch his eye when it hurts so much. He took him in Thursday Morning so hopefully he can come home today. I miss him and so does Deacon and Rocket. Whinny’s, love, hugs and we left you a vote…..

☆ I have the same farrier for all these years and I have the same equine vet so my horses have really good care. I am very thankful that I can give my horses the best I can provide. Again Deacon started this journey for me and I have learned so much. I have learned how to pick hooves, clean sheaths, scoop poop, bath them from head to hoof, load, doctor eyes and cuts…and the list goes on! I have read and studied so much as well. The journey with the horses never ends and you can always learn more. I am off work tomorrow so I will phone vote as many as possible. There is a 20% chance of rain so I’m not sure if I will get to ride. I do have to run and pick up feed and stop by the grocery store, maybe a little final Christmas shopping. Have a great Thursday ~Whinny’s & hugs ♡

Thank you for the get well wishes. I never get sick, but when I do, blech. Lol. Hoping everyone who's under the weather, is feeling better, soon, too...... I did manager a short ride on Sadie, Wednesday. What an amazing feeling to be in the saddle! I forgot about being sick. A friend, who's an experienced rider, came out and rode her, too. I said professional rider, on facebook, because if you have a horse, everyone wants to bring their kids out to ride. Sadie needs work. Not risking accidents.... Stephanie rode Sadie out front. She was amazing. She trotted, cantered and was so good, until she got spooked. She was nervy, possibly coyotes. There's a large den nearby. She bucked hard, and Stephanie hit the ground. She said she was fine, got back on and rode her for a few minutes more. She said she and Sadie need to get to know one another. I'm thinking that's true. Sadie's good with me, but she loves me. She'd better. Lol. Leaving love and a vote.

♡ Oh the joy of shopping for our horses-it is too much fun. Once you get the saddle that fits your horse and you, you must then buy saddle pads and bridles and reins and halters and all things to match, to include YOU! Next I had to have the right pants (the right length), boots, shirts and of course my cowgirl hat! Now I had to shop for another horse for Cliff! What fun the horsey world is. I did find another horse but it wasn’t the right one for him. I sold him and Cliff found Rocket. What a match. He and Deacon got along so well. Then it was time to shop for Rocket!!! Love it ♡ Here is a hug & a Wednesday vote :)

Hi Shadowfax, here's a vote for ya. What a nasty day out there today! Started during the night with sleet, then freezing rain, woke up to a nice layer of ice to walk on to get to the barn and feed. By noon it was about 36 and melting, good thing, cause I had to get miss antsy pants to the indoor for some exercise. Got that done and then ran downtown to get my script of allergy meds. I have them 24/7 365 days a year. Roads were good by 1:30 when i left for the store. Didn't do much more than lunge Paige and do mid-day stalls and hayed and watered them before leaving. We got about 2 inches of rain throughout the day. And now tonight, they are saying 1 to 3 inches of snow! Yep, gotta love the weather! NOT! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

I had a lesson yesterday morning. We worked on Rose rounding and some on my position. When Rose rounds, it feels cool:) It was a good lesson.
Last night was my awards dinner for my playday club. My last night as sweetheart. I got reserve in my group and got a pretty red halter. We also got a carrot mineral block. It was a good, but long night:)

Thanks for the congrats. Yes, some of the Tackies look very Spanish, especially when ridden. Allie has some curl to her thick mane and tail that I think is a Spanish influence. Looks cool anyway. I always liked the Andalusians too; they just look noble. Hope you are having a good weekend.

thanks for the visit and vote. looking at your Shadowfax pics. they are so pretty. the spanish colonial horses (of which the Marsh Tackies are a branch) are a mix of several spanish breed, including Andulsian. i can see a hint of it in allie- the heavy mane, the long muscling, and the arched neck. a lot of Tackies carry their neck the same way when being ridden.

♥ The first 2 years I had Deacon I kept him at a barn 18 miles from me and I didn’t have a trailer at first. So my friends would haul me around to ride. We bought a 2 horse trailer a year later and soon after we bought a 3 horse gooseneck stock trailer. I use to bring a tent and my horse in my 2 horse trailer to camp out! Lol What fun I had and what a wonderful horsey journey I have been on every sense the day I laid eyes on (NEW NICKNAME) Mr. Eyeliner!!! Cliff always says he has eyeliner around his eyes and Allie’s mom started putting “Mr.” in front of it and I think that is so cute! I won’t be around a computer the weekend…I will try and phone vote some. Please continue to support my Deacon! Thank you so much!

Thank you soooo MUCH :)
♡ after my kids got to be 15 and 16 (2008) we had a family talk about them getting new computers or me getting a horse. We agreed that I had gone long enough without having a horse! So a friend of mine that trail rides all the time helped me to find a good gentle gelding. She introduced me to Deacons owner/trainer Bill and I fell in love the moment I saw Deacon.. I know I got a late start but better late than never. On my days off work I will try to phone vote folks but please stop and vote Deacon even if I can’t get to everyone. I am getting his story together. This was a last minute decision I made soooo thank you for your support :)

Hi, left a vote. Got to play a little yesterday with Zip. Took him over the mattress again, still didn't care. Introduced him to a big tarp on the ground for him to walk over, he didn't hesitate went right over it! Played with the big flag and pulled a heavy board behind us, he didn't care. One of the girls ponied him for the first time, he was great! Took it all in stride. I am going to take him to the Oregon Equestrian Center on Dec. 8th. They have a huge indoor trail course set up. It should be fun walking him through it. Yes, I will take pics!

Only one day left in Spangle's HOTM run!
I rode Rose on Thanksgiving. I rode bareback. We did some circles, one test, and we cantered some circles. It was a fun good ride:)
I also lunged Spangle the other day. He hasn't been worked it a while. He did really well. He had some playful energy, but otherwise was fine:)

Hi Shadowfax, here's a vote for ya. Well it was a busy day again today! Took the trailer over to Bill, he had me drop it and leave it there. Took a quick look and from what he saw, about 2000 to 2500 to fix, but he wanted to bring it inside and lift it up and really check out the middle to the front better. He said it's worth fixing it, lots of life in the rest of the trailer. So we'll see! Got home and painted the flower boxes that we built. Plus I stopped at a dollar store and got like 6 nice fake flower pieces, wish they had 6 more, then I'd be set. Got the kids lunged today, was running out of time and energy, more so energy. Washed Paige's tail in bucket of hot water, since it was 53 degrees out and my barn was at 65 inside. By then it was late afternoon and lunch time for me. Well tomorrow could be very interesting, snow starting around 3 am and going till 6 am on Thursday, so here comes the 6 to 10 inches they are talking about. Got a full 4 gallons of gas for the snow blower, we're ready. Tractor is half a tank of diesel, so it's ready too! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.
