How We Met

As a young girl, I loved horses. My best friend lived on a farm and had a pony named Star. I was there all the time. We lived in town and of course couldn't have a horse in the back yard. So, after growing up and finishing school and having a career and getting married, and gettig divorced ang getting remarried, we moved to the country. I leased a horse at a near by stable for about a year and a half, until I was sure I wanted the resonsibility of my own. I heard about Sterl May being available, I eagerly went to meet her, I noticed her beautiful big, soft brown eyes immediately. I put a borrowed saddle and bridle on her and rode her right there in the field with her pasture mate. I knew she was a Standardbred, but that really didn't mean anything to me, she was a horse, she had 4 feet,a head and a tail, and she let me ride her. I decided then and there that I wanted her. I asked the price and her owner told me,she always said she would never give her away. At that time Canada had just done away with our $1 bill and replaced it with a coin, a loonie. She said I can't sell her for $1, because she is NO loonie. Give me $2 and she is yours. I couldn't believe what I was hearing, I handed her a $2 bill. She handed it back to me and said " you keep this $2, as long as you own Sterl May you will never be broke". I still have that $2 bill, it is framed with her reg. papers. I promised her a home until the day she dies. I will keep that promise. I will never be broke as long as she is in my life. She is retired now, all she has to do is look pretty and keep Charlie company. She has Cushing's disease, but she doesn't know, so I'm not going to tell her, she never complains, she willingly takes her meds everyday, she just goes with the flow. She is a very happy horse.

My goodness! Horses are so smart. I've noticed that Sadie sometimes has what looks like dried drops of water on her back. Monday, she filled her mouth with water and tossed it on her back. How cool is it that she knows how to cool herself off? I don't know if this is something horses normally do, or if she was inspired by being hosed down or cooling off in the sprinkler. Just amazing! So thankful for the wonderful things we learn from our four legged loved ones. Love always and a vote.

A Vote for You!!
thought of all of the Horse Channel members and their horses, this morning while I made a short cut back to the house, and watched the heavy dew of water fly up from the front of my boots. Very cool out, and I wish I could share it with everyone. But then, I would have to share the weeks of 30 below and 10 foot high snow banks.

it's been super hot and dusty. I'm trying to keep my horses cool and hosed off every day. I mixed up half alcohol and half water and sprayed it on them. the alcohol evaporates faster for a quicker cool down. when I ride I'm mostly walking. we're about ready for some rain!

Hi & a vote,
Had to rush our dog to vet this a.m. Lyme diagnosis, so he'll be on meds. He had vaccine yearly for Lyme and flea/tick preventative, but that's not a guarantee.

Another very hot afternoon but I got out there and pulled off fly masks, filled water tanks and watered a few plants and trees. Temps have stayed a hair under 100 but the "feels like" have been in the triple digits. I turned the boys out to graze while I cooled down. This is not my favorite time of the year it’s just too hot! Happy trails and Have a wonderful day “)

Cherry season is over, been doing alot of clean up and putting things away that we take out for harvest, hasn't rained in weeks, and weeks and has been very hot, they say Oregon is in a drought and by the looks of the lakes, streams and land it looks like it ! Been doing late night rides and early morning walks, Lilly is doing great, she gets her toes trimmed on Wens. Jack, Daniel ( the goats ) are doing great to, I'm gonna trim their feet this evening, Hood River County fair is this weekend, haven't been in about 10 years, considering going this year, we'll see. Have a blessed week, Suz and Lilly

So sorry I haven't been on in a couple of days. The internet was disconnected to the laptop. Being computer illiterate, I had no idea what was wrong. Planning to buy a cheap laptop around the end of August. I won't be able to use Austin's after the 24th of next month, because he starts back to school. Sadie's doing well. Love and a vote. <3

Have to admit, I don't think of Canada as getting extreme heat. It should be mandatory that you have perfect summers since you have such long tough winters.

Here's a quick vote from Buddy!

I went and seen Buddy the other day when I had the day off from work, and let me tell you, it was much needed after the morning that I had! He was good to catch, much to my surprise, he walked right up to me. I got a few pictures and videos of him. I was going to try and ride him bareback, but he just wouldn't co-operate, so he just got lunged more instead. He's got a few teeth scrape marks on him, so I didn't want to put a saddle on him just yet. I know he's apparently not the biggest fan of my saddle anyways, so I plan on getting one that fits him better when I have more money to get a saddle fitter out!

That being said, I got a second job! There is a place here in town called Evergreen Park, and it is basically a race track, public "self serve" barn, and that sort of thing. The lady who keeps the barn clean and arena groomed needed an assistant to help her close at night, so I will be doing that. I can get 40 hours a week there if I wanted, and both she, my boss at Greenhawk are flexible for when I work. I am so excited to have extra money. Not only for Buddy, but maybe just maybe, and this is news to everyone here! I maybe able to get the little egyptian arabian mare that I have fallen for, she keeps popping up on my Facebook all the time, I really need to win the lottery so I can buy her, and soon!!

We hope you have been having a good summer so far and that you have been spending a lot of time with your horses!

-Buddy & Jasmine

Appreciate everyone's kind words. Never had to put down a horse that was the picture of health (except for the broken leg) before. Planned on riding today, but Nugget threw such a fit when I got Cisco up that I put him back out with her. She only has one eye, and gets really frantic when she's by herself. Maybe tomorrow. Having some internet problems, but will to get on as much as I can. Votes, of course.

Hello Sterly!
I am sorry it has been so long since I've been on HC. I'm finally catching up with all my friends.

It's been ungodly hot around here for several days, how is Sterl handling the heat? I mostly spend my time making Luna cooler with the hose, and then going to the pool (just me, not Luna LOL). I finally found a farrier I like, so I'm looking forward to some improvement in Luna's hooves. They have a bunch of little sand cracks in them, so I have her on supplements and an accelerated trimming schedule. We'll see what happens.

I left you a vote...have a horsey day!!

---Cindy and ~Luna~

Sadly this AM, only 2 horses to feed and they kept calling for Meg. She broke her R hind leg and was euthanized yesterday morning. Took her bucket down and put it in the barn. Silly horses even whinnied at the car when I got back from shopping, sounded like they were hoping she was in the back seat. Nugget and Cisco guarded her yesterday until she was buried - I couldn't go back out there, but was told they watched solemnly as she was buried.
