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 everyone, sorry I have not been on, as you all know Jack the goat had a relapse, today was going to be a difficult day, the vet is coming to the barn for everyone's wellness checks and shots, today I was gonna have to be judge and jury for Jack but I am happy to say he is back on his feet walking and foraging in a slow motion manner but that is okay,occasionally he stumbles and I have to go pick him up but strength will come with time, praise God he got a reprieve from the almighty Judge !! on the flip side, Lilly got a bath yesterday, so did I LOL, she gets her shots today and hopefully a clean bill of health, the gal that gave me a lesson on trailer loading said Lilly needs to see a chiropracter, she said it feels like there something off on the r
right side of her neck up by her poll, her daughter does this kind of work so I have a call into her to talk about it and schedule an appt. I am getting ready to take Lilly for a spin in the trailer this week yay, but here is a ? for Everyone, do you tie or not tie your horses in the trailer, the gal who gave me a lesson does not, alot of yes and no's on the internet, not sure what I am suppose to do, any suggestions ??? love you all, Lilly and Suzie

Come visit me, Lilly.

Got to ride Dash for 30 mins Friday and Saturday, he was sooo good! I didn't get to see him on my birthday (Sunday) because it rained all day, but I went to see him yesterday evening! He is such a big sweet heart! I brushed him for a long time. He's almost done shedding, his head neck and shoulders are a lovely honey color, but his belly and ears and a little patch on his face have yet to shed lol:) Reb is shedding but he HATES to be brushed!!! I brush him when he allows it, which isn't very often haha! I messed with him some yesterday as well, but I could tell he was getting bored so I turned him loose and he ran a huge circle bucking an jumping, it was so cute:)I will post pics soon y'all!

Come visit me, Clayboy, Dash & Reb.

ANOTHER FARM UNDER QUARANTINE...
Wow, this not good, I did see that there is bird flu in several US states, this affects import and export. We have a chicken farm added to the list here. We are working 4 days a week for the next 6, hopefully things will be under control then, Looks like lots of PB & J and soup for us... Love Donna Lee

Hi Donna Lee, I'm glad to hear that everything is going well for you and it's starting to dry out a bit. I'll still take some of that rain you're getting if you need me too lol. I got some time in with Koot on Sunday and he had a great time, other than being a bit stressed that one of his horsey friends is no longer his stall buddy. Voted. XOXO Danya and Koot

HELLO (after a long time!) :-(
I'M SO SORRY! I haven't been able to get on, (we've been very busy) and I've been a little all over the place right now! I don't think its gonna work out to run for HOTM, even if this is the 20th of April. Thanks for voting though,I appreciate it so much!
Princess might have found a home, my parents are thinking it through:( BUT....we might have another horse on the way also! So happy...it's turning GORGEOUS here! So worth all the rotten weather that was going on in Feb. and Jan. And what better way to end those days than to ride?! They are almost shedded out, just have some jaw-line hair LOL.
Well, I gotta get going, I've been looking for a barrel-racing trainer or horse-trainer to work with or for, but it's so frustrating. I can't find any so far, they all live about 2 hours away! So tired of it. But maybe I'll find one soon...maybe:-/
Talk to ya later, really sorry about my absence!

Come visit me, Pardner Quick(Princess) Congrats Paige on HOTM! & Miss Susie Q Cowgirl.

Charlie's diet was a bit overwhelming at first, but I got this now...So, twice a day her gets, 4 cups of alfalfa pellets, one scoop loose salt,(50cc) 2 scoops of stabilized rice bran, 3 scoops of oat flour, two scoops of ground flax seeds, two scoops of ground pumpkin seed(hulled raw) I soak this to make a mash and he gets top dressing of one scoop of a pro/prebiotic plus 1/2 cup of dried cabbage. He love it...he is also still on a low dose of the Omeperozole. doing good. Love Donna Lee

Glad Charlie is doing well. Feels good to be able to get everything cleaned up. Looks so clean and new. We are still having high winds. Got to ride Sat. all of a sudden we had 45 mph winds. Jax did really well. He had more trouble with the limb on the ground then the wind itself. Our ground is still soft. We could only ride around the perimeter. Vicki & Big Jax

Only got 1 inch of rain last night. Sure sounded like more. Again, not enough to really help the rivers and lakes, but great for the grass, crops and of course, the mud. Thinking maybe I'll get to ride by my birthday in July.

The new farrier came out Friday. Sadie's hooves look amazing. He said they look healthy. So thankful. I still haven't heard from the other farrier. I'm hoping nothing bad happened to him. Not like him to not show up or answer his phone or text messages. Love and a vote.

ALL IS WELL....
I had a great day yesterday, got lots done outside, the paddocks are all clean. All of the old hay from winter is cleaned up and taken away, no poop laying around. We are going to reseed the one paddock but i can't do that until it is a bit dryer and not as windy. I even had time for a short ride. Charlie seems to be adjusting to the change in weather well, and his new diet is a hit, he loves his bucket. They will both gets teeth and shots in the next few weeks and Charlies's shoes go back on, have a great day, Love and a vote Donna Lee

Hi Sterly, here's a vote for ya honey. Hope you had a great birthday with lots of treats! Well sounds like they are getting the bird flu under control now. Thank goodness.

Good morning I hope things are going better for you at work. We are having a beautiful day. Jax got his teeth done yesterday. Plan on going out and brushing him. He rolled and he looks like pig pen LOL. Should have named him that. So hard to keep white white. :) If it is as warm as they say, maybe a bath. Just don't want to do it too early, our nights are still cool. Have a great Sat. Hope you get to ride. Vicki & Big Jax

NO NEW CASES OF BIRD FLU...
It looks like the quarantine is working, there have been no new cases reported, we had a really short week, about 25 hours, it did give me lots of time to get stuff done outside, however not good for the old pay cheque... it will be a few weeks like this, the quarantines can not be lifted until the farms test negative for 21 consecutive days. It is what it is, we will survive, we left a vote, Love Donna Lee

Early Happy Birthday To You!!!
Sorry I haven't been on in a while. I have been dealing with lots of different things, with my Mom, my sister and my daughter. So much happening right now. The weather is terrible. Lots of rain everyday. Our pasture flooded on Tuesday, however the water has gone down now, but the rain has not stopped. Hope you have a great weekend, if possible.
