Did you manage any horse time over the last few days?
I rode Allie again yesterday and had one of my best rides on her, in that she really tried for me. I did some more doubling into the fence at all 3 gaits, hoping to improve her softness, buy it's also helped her stop. Even when she built up some speed going down the fence, she was waiting for me to pull that outside rein, and she got around without too much resistance. Also did some figure 8s at the lope, which helps her not get too fast too. She got tons of hugs and rest periods for all her good effort. Gosh, if I could only get that attitude most days.
Well, gotta head to work. Hope you have a great friday.

Hi Susie & Friends, here's a vote for ya. Thanks, don't know about the hair cut being cute, but is sure is cooler! Hope you can get a ride in for sure! You're retired now and should be riding! Well woke up to 58 degrees and it never got above 67 degrees today! Nasty out with rain on and off all day long. But Honey and I did get one walk in around noontime! Did 1.5 miles at least! Then it was lunge Indy time. The a grooming. Then Bullseye got a spa day today! He's so cute! Gave then fresh water and hay for lunch. About 4 pm was going to check them and take Honey on another walk, but it just started raining again! So back to the house and the couch! Couch had my company a lot today! LOL!

Thanks, it's Gracie's and BJ's first time ever getting HOTM. I was surprised and excited to see it.
Yep, seems like cutting grass is something you do any time you have a spare minute or two, an ongoing activity, like picking up the den. Wish my pasture would grow as well as my yard, but I guess if it didn't have hungry animals eating and trampling it all the time, it probably would.
Well, hope you have a great wednesday.

Hi Susie & Friends, here's a vote for ya. I'm with you on the weather! It goes from nice to holy crap hot and humid with severe T-storms! Well the heat and humidity stunk already at 7 am! About 10 am I took Honey for her walk, we did 1.75 miles. Mostly in the shade thank goodness! Got home and I was soaked from the humidity. Decided the hair had to go! Go my super short cut! Got home and there was no way the boys could go out! Put two more fans on in the barn, total of 6 going and 2 of them are the big commercial ones! Hayed them and fresh water. Came up to the house to cool off. Then went down and worked on putting in the two extra stallion bars by Bullseye so he stops pulling the bungee cords that hold his fan in place! Once again, soak n wet! Come up and hear the fire sirens going off. Here come all kinds of firetrucks and emergency vehicles past the farm. It was about 3 miles from me, don't know if it was the old farm house down there or next to it! Just praying that no humans or animals were lost! Then we got hit with a really bad T-Storm that shook the house and down poured like crazy! Looks like tomorrow will be a repeat performance of today's weather! This is really getting to me! Marion and the blondes.

Cisco and Jazz are doing well. Jazz yelled a few times for Bo around feeding time last night, but seems to be adjusting. Cisco went looking for her a couple of times this morning. 1/2" of rain this Am, so didn't get up to Steve's.

Bo went down sometime during the night and couldn't get up, the vet was out early this AM to euthanize her. Probably for the best, Jazz stayed with body for a couple of hours, then buddied up with Cisco. If I had taken her into the vet's, I think Jazz would have been really distraught not knowing what happened or where she was.

Love your gifts. Hope you're getting a lot of barn time, like the tee shirt says
It was another beautiful day here yesterday. I grocery shopped in the am and worked all afternoon on the deck. Got all the floor joists in except 1 (I ran out of hangers). That doesn't sound like much, but the hangers were the kind that you had to measure every one carefully and that took a while. No horse time, except to feed, but I watched them randomly run here and there periodically, don't know what that was about, lol. I figure Allie had something to do with it.
Gotta work today, but hope you have a great thursday.

Hi Susie & Friends, here's a vote for ya. Belated Happy Birthday! Nice horsey cup cake and T-shirt! Awesome you got to spend it with your sister too! Well felt a lot more lively today! LOL! Got 2 loads of my laundry done. And on our local radio station every morning they have a question about whatever, it's always a tough one and it's for good prizes. Today I won and got $10 in scratch off lottery tickets, won $22 on them! YAY! Took the good show shirts and pants to cleaners for starch and pressing! Fueled up the diesel and got gas for the lawn tractor! Let the mowing begin! Got all around the house weed whacked and mowed, but the mowing was in two parts! Thunder storm and rain put a halt to it for a while. Then the sun came back out and with the nice strong wind, it dried enough to finish just as another round of storms moved in! Boys got out for about 90 minutes till the first storm hit! Tomorrow's another day of mowing for sure! And horsey laundry this time! Marion and the blondes.

Well I had a pretty full week this past week! It was my birthday and tropical storm Cindy came through. Another milestone birthday. Had a great time for my birthday. My sisters took me out to eat at Texas Roadhouse Steakhouse. Then they surprised me with a cake and gifts when we got back. I posted 3 pics on Susie's page of my horsey cake, my barn time tee shirt and horse book. I also received a gift from my sister in Florida, it was an Amazon Echo. I am having fun with that...talking to Alexa. lol

The storm didn't do any damage here. We had a lot of rain and some minor flooding in some areas. Just glad it wasn't a hurricane. Hope you all have a great week!

Hi & a Vote,
Rode Rocky last evening with my friend and her horse for a trail ride. We saw a double-rainbow! Blue and her dog, Hailey, were along for the ride too. Yesterday was a.m. dog adoption clinic and then Blue to the nursing home for a therapy dog visit.

Come visit me, Rocky (the blue-eyed wonder horse), Comet (has new home) & Cowboy (Thanks for HOTD 1/19/2017!).

Did you make it through Cindy okay? Hope no bad storms. We got a little rain out of it, but that's about all. Not complaining, don't want TS and tornados.
My sister in law says she's feeling better. They think they'll release her this weekend some time. So my to-do list this weekend includes working on the deck, cutting a little grass, taking care of her dog, and visiting and/or bringing her home.
I've been so busy and overwhelmed lately, but it was a blessing to come home from work and find that a friend had dropped off a mower and my son had cut nearly all the grass for me. That's a 3-4 hr job. I've got some touch up work to do, but at least most of it is done. Bless him.
Well, hope you have a good saturday

Hi Susie & Friends, here's a vote for ya. Yep isn't retirement grand! You work harder at home than you did at your ex-job! At least I know I do! Always mowing, it's like what's better, moving snow in the winter maybe a couple of times a month or mowing 5 out of 7 days a week all summer! HUM let me think about that one! LOL! Well we didn't leave today due to the pending storm. Personally I think if we left on time at 10 am, we would have stayed out of it's path on the way down there. We would have been there about 1 pm and the storm didn't hit them till 4 pm! So we would have been okay! It did start about 11 am up here and never stopped thundering till about 5 pm! Never have I been in a storm where the thunder is so long and relentless! Heavy rains at times! Have to check the indoor for any water, but it's still raining out there! I'll check it when I got to feed at 7 pm, close to that now! Poor Honey was besides herself. I had to dose her with the prescription stuff, twice, three hours apart! Poor baby girl! So we'll be heading out very early tomorrow morning. Probably have to leave here by 8 am maybe. Haven't heard from Marissa with the time yet. Hopefully she'll know tonight so I can set the alarm earlier than my usual 6:15 am if needed! Marion and the blondes.

Yep, all the rain makes for a lot of grass to cut. My mower is still in the shop and I haven't heard from them. Got dandelions that are knee high and spreading their nasty little dandelion seeds everywhere. I'm sure the neighbors wish I'd get a move on and cut them. Oh well.
In the meantime, I did get the posts set for the deck and giving them a few days for the concrete to set (I'll be at work anyway). A knowledgeable friend stopped by and gave me some pointers, which helped.
I've also gotten a ride or two in on Allie. She learns stuff fine and makes progress on everything except giving her face, which makes it hard to appreciate her doing other stuff right when you don't really have steering in place. Beats all I ever saw, how stiff necked and strong willed she is. I think she's gonna love heading straight down a trail, whenever I can ever get a truck to get her to the trails.
Well, it sounds like I'm still complaining, didn't mean to. Allie is fun to ride and I can't wait till she learns to listen a little better, she'll be fun to do stuff with.
Hope your week gets off to a good start.

I did grocery shopping yesterday, marked out the deck and started digging post holes, but the post hole diggers broke. Cut some grass but the lawn mower broke. Which was great because I REALLY needed something else to do (not!). Sigh. No horse time, looks like none at all again this week either.
Well, sorry to complain. We did get a nice little rain in the afternoon, and a pretty sunset.
Hope you have a great hump-day.

Glad the new doors are working well to jeep the barn drier. It IS hard to keep hooves in good shape when it's raining all the time, isn't it.
Allie did pretty good yesterday. She was really following the feel of the bosal at the walk, of course stiffer at the trot and really stiff at the lope, but steerable. I introduced a step of shoulder out on a circle and also practiced sidepassing. She's getting better at moving toward the left. I also had some Madison time- we went to Hobby Lobby and PetSmart (I haven't been home much to see her the last 3 days), cut a little grass, and figured out how to get the pool vacuum working, but then had to babysit it because it was sucking so much debris off the bottom that the strainer kept clogging up.

Hi Susie & Friends, here's a vote for ya. Glad that it finally dried up enough to bathe everyone! I've done 2 and a donkey and it killed my back! Can't imagine doing four full sized horses! Well let's see, a lot's happened since HC went down two days ago! Windshield looks like it's gonna be my dime! Have the Police report and they didn't give me the name and address of the company this truck was out of! So still pursuing that! And the RV repairman was here! It's the motor and compressor that's burnt out! So all new parts, but the box and insulation is good! Hopefully be fixed and up and running by next Wed night! And, and I finally got to ride my mare! Had a 30 minute lesson on Paige on Thursday, felt great to be back in the saddle again! We walked, jogged and loped! Back and did some 360 spins too! Not sore at all today! But she's a cadillac to ride! Eye doctor today, all is good, well just the cataracts are getting a little worse, but my script didn't change for my contacts or glasses. And the Macular degeneration hasn't gotten any worse in three years now. Those vitamins he recommended to work! Boys were out today for like 2 hours of pasture time while I weed whacked and mowed one of the dryer pastures. And of course Honey and I got in a mile walk. Marion and the blondes.

Hi Susie & Friends, here's a vote for ya. Happy Birthday ACE! What a show, long hours, didn't like the combo of Paint/Quarter on Sat and Sun, really made for long 16 hours days in the show pen! Hope they don't do that again. Did see some of my Paint friends, that was great. And wow some really flashy paints there and some nice movers! Well it was bitter sweet! The truck got a broken windshield and the refrigerator took a crap! Spoke with my RV repair man today and we're trying something first. Or it's the fins went bad, or worse the entire unit! But Paige did great! Laura but 8 lifetime Showmanship points on her and 4 Rookie Showmanship on her. I did very well, but on Sat, my knee gave out a little jogging my circle to the right, stress on right knee! Cost me a higher placing for sure! Didn't leave there till 9:15 pm and arrived at my farm with Paige dropped off and Indy picked up at 1:25 am Monday morn! Got to bed by 2 am and spent most of the entire day in bed sleeping! Still feel washed out! Hopefully back to normal tomorrow! PS. even Honey is tired! Marion and the blondes

Hope you had a good weekend.
We had TS off and on after church, so didn't get to ride, but it hasn't rained in a couple of weeks, so we needed it.
Seems like we have a new breed of mosquito I've never seen; they're as big and round as a black fly, and brown. Great. We had our first watermelon of the season, so the horses got the rind, which they love. They'd probably like the red part even better, lol.
Well, hope you have a great week. Take care.

I like the new doors. Are those panels hinged and made to be Dutch doors, or did you make them that way yourself? I imagine you used panels to let the air circulate better? That would be way important in La!
Glad you're able to get to some of those long-planned property improvements you didn't have time to do when you were working. I've talked to several people who've been super busy catching up after retirement.

I've got so much going on, it's not easy to be on HC everyday. My cousin died Sunday morning. Still too much to process. Not going, because the service is in S.C and the burial in Georgia. I did send flowers to the funeral home, then called to make sure they got there. Been in touch with my aunt and brother. My car is in the shop. Should be ready Thursday. Hot weather is on it's way and that ac is gold. Love and votes. Prayers, too.

WORKING HARD...
We've been working on our barn and our electric fence. Got a new fence charger. Put up some new gates on the barn with "dutch doors". We put some clear Tex-tuff plastic tin on the gates to keep the rain out of the barn. We were just using a tarp and the strong wind and rain tore that down and scared the horses half to death. lol I'm posting some pics of the new gates below. P.S. don't know why the pics are sideways, the one with the bare gates is correct.

Had a good visit with my family. My sister's family wound up being there unexpectedly (except for her son, who's at boot camp in the marines), so we had a good visit. Went to the state museum, which is really good, and walked ourselves to death.
Woke up early with a HUGE craving to horse, so I rode Gracie at dawn, before church. I've never done that before, but it was so peaceful, and rain was moving in, so it was nice. The rain has since moved out, so I might ride Allie this afternoon. Why not.
Well, hope your sunday is a good one.

So much going on. 3 family members have terminal cancer, my mom has alzheimer's, dementia and Parkinson's disease, and with other issues, I haven't felt much like being on HC or Facebook. I leave for Minnesota on the 21st of June. Got that week off approved at work. Now, I'm waiting to hear about the 5th of July through the 17th. I put in for those days to drive to Nevada to see my son and his family, then bring my grandsons home with me for a week's visit. I'm so excited about them moving back to the States and being closer to me. Already planning my first Christmas with them. So wonderful to have something so wonderful to look forward to.
