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.

I put Sadie's fly spray in a different bottle, because the original bottle broke. For some reason, she didn't mind being sprayed. It's smells strong. hoping it'll last on her through tomorrow. Lots of love always 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

Come visit me, Kootenai *Thank you for Oct. HOTM!!!*.

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

I HEAR YOU ABOUT THIS STUPID VIRUS!
Had planned on riding today, but just ran out of steam, feeling a bit weak. Whatever this virus is, it's just not letting go. Didn't even saddle Cisco, just did a bit of groundwork and then worked with Nugget. Cisco has found a new taste sensation - PECANS! And no, I don't think they are on his diet. Vet is coming out in AM to do Meg & Nugget's teeth and West Nile vac. and a Flu/Rhino for Cisco. I don't think she's going to be happy with Cisco's weight, although he has lost some.

♡ I had another wonderful ride on Whiskey. Walk trot canter then settled into a nice walk. I let him graze a little as well. I was going to take Deacon but his left eye was swollen so I doctored it and let him rest. If it is not swollen after work I will ride him today…if I’m not too tired lol ♥ Have a wonderful day :)

CHARLIE IS A STAR.....
Good morning, I worked 5 hours of OT yesterday. I feel like this cold is coming back, it has settled on my chest, I'm actually barking...today my Charlie will be the *STAR* the man I bought him from 6 years ago is going to come over for a visit. He loved Charlie as much as me, and when I bought him, he said, "I know Charlie is going to a home where he will be loved, that is all I want for him" I got him all buffed up last night, what do you bet he rolls in the mud before he gets here....Love that horse, have a great day, Love & votes Donna Lee

Pyranha Spray and Wipe is great, but Sadie doesn't like it. She always stands still when I spray her down but not with this stuff. I have to follow her around and spray when I can. I accidentally spilled some on my hand. The spray nozzle broke when it fell off the top of my dryer. Took about 7 hand washings, a shower and shampooing my hair to get most of it washed off. Using a glove next time. Love and a vote.

It rained at the beginning of the week, which meant no riding. I lunged Rose once this week. I also rode her tonight. We just rode around and had a relaxing ride. It was good:)

I have entered Rose in the costume contest! The picture is also the first one below my blogs. We are dressed up as Kristof and Sven from Disney's Frozen! We won 1st place at our playday dress up contest.

Pretty Meg got her spa day today, she and Cisco are sporting their winter coats complete with dapples. Never knew a black horse could have dapples! Got all 3 worked, then ran out of steam. Feeling good, just tire very easily. Finished deworming the calves today, it was easy, I used the SafeGuard block (dewormer in molasses base) leave it out for 3 days and it's done.

A day off sure goes by fast, doesn't it? The weather is beautiful, a little chilly at night. Living in the desert makes 60* seem chilly, Lol. Sadie's good.

thanks for voting for me and godiva in the costume contest! all votes appreciated. :)
my little 4 yr old boy rider came back for another pony ride on godiva this week. his mom said he's very shy, introverted and has never done any sports of activities. I'm so privileged that he loved riding godiva and she signed him up for a weekly pony ride! he told me tonight, "Godiva is my best friend." how blessed am I?? makes all the bratty kids melt away into dim memory. lol.

Here's a vote from Buddy! It's been a little while since we've been on to blog and vote again. I was planning on coming on last week during my days off but my sister suprised me and came to visit, so I was busy busy busy!

An update on everything going on with me since I last blogged… We didn't get the house we were looking at renting, but that's okay! I also haven't found a new job, and that's okay too. Especially since if I'm not working at the barn I cannot live in my current place! I still haven't "ridden" Buddy per say. I've tried to ride him with his normal saddle pad that he likes and he was still a little off-ish so today or tomorrow I'm going to try bareback, and just a halter. I think his teeth need to be done, but I need money first before I can get them done. Rob is planning on selling his quad so hopefully he will pay for Buddy's teeth!

I've also found what I believe are splints on Buddy's legs. I went to pick out his feet the other night, and while running my hand down his leg I came across a hard bump, so I had Lynn look at him as well and she told me they feel like splints and to keep an eye on them. I also talked to my aunty about it and she told me to rub castor oil on the bumps a few times a day. So hopefully they do not get any worse!

The weather here has been getting cooler, but we have still had a few warmer days. I hope everyone has been getting some horsey time in!

-Buddy & Jasmine

Come visit me, Buddy.
