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.

Here is a Good Morning vote from Whisper and the little herd. I took Kisses off of HC, since now Stephanie has her papers too. I want to find time to add Pickles, then put all the horses under 1 page, it would be so much easier to manage. Temps here were 48 this morning, but going to get hot later today. Yesterday was perfect, nice wind all day, clothes all dried on the line so fast. Transplanted, squash plants, from where we need to enlarge the pig pen, once both sows, get closer to having their babies, called "piglets". Chickens followed me around so see if I was going to make another spot that they would get worms for free.

It was suppose to be 120*, Monday, but only made it up to 116*. Cooling down to 112* and then, 110* later in the week. Suppose to be around 110* for the next 2 weeks. The air is hot. Thankful it's not humid, yet. Love to each of you and a vote.

A Vote for You!!
Hope it is cooler by you now. We hit the 80's yesterday for Father's Day. Went to our son's house for supper. He is a good cook, does not take after his Mom, that's for sure. It's been such a busy week, and today looks like the same way. Hubby said one of us will have to get a job soon, because we spent so much helping our grandson with his collage, this is a joke, because we saved 10 dollars a week since he was born. Did this for all the 4 grandkids. He is going to linesman school, 9 mt course, fast pace, on hand training at school, then lots of homework. This morning he left to go pick up our beef, we butchered about 2 weeks ago.

So sorry I haven't been on. HC was down, then I had long shifts at work, making it impossible to vote. The wind was so hot when I got off work, Sunday night, my eyes burned. I came home, watered some of my trees, filled Sadie's water and splashed her butt with the hose. I got a dirty look, lol. What a brat. She's doing well, drinking lots of water. Thankful the heat doesn't seem to bother her. I started her on psyllium pellets, again. I mixed them with carrots and apples. She'd eat them without a treat, but I love to spoil her. And yes, I pay for it. Lol. Love and a vote.

Yes bathing four horses is a lot of work, but it's worth it when I get to see them in all their beauty. Today is my birthday (happy birthday to me)! I have to work the grave tonight but at least we get paid time and a half on our birthday. Then I'm off all next week...hooray! Have a blessed Sunday.

Miserable today, the horses were sweating when I fed this AM, and the "feels like" hit 108, very humid. Started adding electrolytes to their evening feed a few days ago, a tablespoon of stock salt in the AM.

Not looking forward to the predicted 120* on Sunday, and it's not even summertime, yet. It's usually hotter here than in Phoenix. Keeping Sadie's water filled, as usual. She knows how to wet herself down when the temperature's from Hell hit. We have beautiful winters that make up for it. Lots of love and a vote.

Yes it will be great when I am finally retired! I am counting the days. Having some vacation time in between will help out till then. It sucks working graves because the next day you have to sleep most of the day. I will have some horsey time beginning Monday. So ready! Here's a vote.

Hi Sterly, here's a vote for ya honey. Just glad that you caught it when you brought her in. Probably light heat wave effects, not a stroke for sure. You'd know the difference! Prayers she's doing A Okay now! Love, Marion and the blondes.

Glad to hear that Sterly is doing better...
Fun day. Met up with Sherry (Whiskey & Deacon's) mom, then went with her to where Susan (Sing and Herd) was picking up her new gelding and Whiskey. Was great to see Sherry again and meet Susan. Going to put off Cisco's party a couple of days until the Uncle Jimmy's Squeezy Buns get here. He will never know the difference.

Wow, yesterday was the hottest so far, we had a wild wind with it so it was deceiving. My Sterly had a bit of heat stress by the time they came in for dinner. I sponged her with cool water and put her big fan on her all night. She had a bit of muscle twitching but she was e, d, p, p, so I figured she was OK. She is such a tough old girl. This morning and today much cooler and yes, she was fine at breakfast. Love that girl, have a great day, Love Donna Lee

Scruffy's doing great. He was so good at the Vet's. Had to say hello to everyone there. The vet's assistant was surprised when I told her his 10th birthday is in August. She thought he was 2. She said he's in great shape. He's an over aged puppy. Lol. Sadie 's pretty, nosy butt's doing well, too.... Busy work weekend, again. Longer hours next weekend. Will vote when I can. Love you all and a vote.

Lol, cooling down to 111*, today. Bought a small tarp to put on one of the walls of Sadie's shade to block some of the hot sun, until I can get some more material to finish it. Trying to figure out how to put it up and hoping she won't rip it down. Lots of love and a vote.
