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.

Hi Sterly, here's a vote for ya. Now today was the kinda day it could stay like all year round! LOL! 42 when I got up and hit a high of about 66, sunny with little to no wind at all! Just lovely! Got a lot of hay moved from the hay barn to the horse barn today. Making room for a new load or two to come in this week. Ran over to a friends for a fast BBQ, told them, have to take advantage and get home and get my horses out. But on the way home stopped at Tractor Supple and got 50 bricks of Eco Wood for the wood burner. Unloaded that into my garage, ribs are feeling good, each unit weights about 21 pounds. So that was a nice 1000 lbs of lifting and carrying in! Horses were very happy to finally be out in their pastures for a few hours too! I think I might just see if I can lift my saddle tomorrow and take a little spin on Paige. But that work saddle is about 38 pounds. We'll see. Love, Marion and the blondes.

Come visit me, Nuttin But Good. Thanks Sing & Herd for #9500!, R.I.P. Hi Tech Image, #13700 Thanks Bella Boo/DC & MWS Zippn By Indy, Tkx Mom, Paige, HT for #17800!.

HI from Celeste and herd
CONGRATULATIONS ON HORSE OF THE DAY! I don't get mad at anyone but my sister. My computer system doesn't always want to do what I want it too. It's only been allowing a certain amount of bloging at one time then it shuts me down. I have a brand new computer but it doesn't have a modem, sooooo. Anyway right now I'm fighting the flu. My new miniature horse Buffy had a baby but we lost the poor little thing, the vet did all she could. We called her Booopeep she was beautiful and it just about broke my heart. Buffy did take a second place out of 360 miniatures at the fair (before she had the baby). Buffy is in the HC costume contest. All the herd are doing great. And by the way you haven't been to my page in quite some time.Still busy working and I won two photography awards. And Right now I'm doing several Zombie charity walks.
Take care and God bless...love Celeste

Hi Sterly, here's a vote for ya honey. Don't sweat the small stuff. For one thing, can't spell to good either can they! In a couple of years, when the poor horse is broken down, physically and mentally, it'll be sad for the horse! Hopefully they are just trying to impress other kids on here and aren't really serious! Us adults know better. Love, Marion and the blondes.

Wouldn't worry about it - as for people that do way too much with their young horses, they won't have much of an older horse. Did you ever get5 over the crud? Starting to pack up for my weekend at Steve's, leaving today and will get back tomorrow night - clinic and Halloween obstacle course competition. Hope the goblins don't get Cisco (or me)!

I let Lilly out into the yard yesterday in the rain to go munch on the grass while I cleaned her stall, next thing I know she is back in under cover guess she did not want to get any wetter, 1st day we have not done anything in a long time, My last day here at work looks like maybe Nov 21 I should bring in some yarn and crotche my friends and familys some scarves or bring my water colors and do a little painting the days are so long just hanging out, maybe they will suprise me and get the process done faster. love Suz and Lilly

So hey there, I've noticed that you have been posting some rude comments on people's walls (including mine when i had been offline for awhile and won HOTD) I ended up deleting your comment from mine because I don't need the negativity, but today I noticed your comment on the HOTD's wall(which you can do all those things with a three year old, it just depends on their temper. I had a three year old I rode last year that I did that kind of stuff on). I would appreciate it if you would please refrain from those comments, as it makes HorseChannel a much less fun place. Even if you don't agree with something it doesn't mean you have to be rude. Thank you.

My yard light went out during the last storm. I had it put up, a few years ago, so Sadie's corral would stay lit up at night. I ordered a replacement bulb, because I couldn't find one. Hope that's all I need. I still go out to check on Sadie. Can't see if there are snakes or scorpions. She's worth the risk. Love and a vote.

Back in the saddle!
Finally rode today - Cisco insisted on bucking up a storm during ground work and was really sweaty by the time I rode. He settled down beautifully for our ride, then got a good hosing off. All mine have their winter coats, took quite a while for him to dry, even though it was 82. He is really fuzzy. Vet was out this AM, Cisco was a gentleman for his shots, Meg was a lady for hers and getting her teeth done, Nugget took one look at Dr. Trish, pinned her ears, squelled, and stamped a hoof. She did manage to give her the West Nile, but teeth were out. She has no trouble eating, so will just go with and do her shots myself. Guess I'll have to learn how to trim hoofs, too.

Hi Donna Lee, I hope you had a nice weekend. We had a scheduled power outage on Friday night which wasn't fun :( lasted from 10pm Friday til 9:30am Saturday! Kinda crazy. Saturday was a baby shower for some out of town friends and then Sunday was Koot time! Got him out for a nice long trail ride, then trimmed his bridle path and fetlock and even hosed him off a little where the saddle was because he's sooo furry, he's been sweating easily lately. It's too hot still (75ish) for a winter coat lol. Voted. XOXO Danya and Koot

WONDERFUL VISIT...
It was a very emotional visit, Mr. Butler had not seen Charlie in 6 years and he was clearly choked up about it. He said Charlie was always his favorite horse and all he wanted for him was that he go to a loving home, he said, he has that here with you, thank you for taking such good care of him. It was wonderful, love Donna Lee & Charlie
