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.

Raining. It's suppose to rain through Saturday. Got a lot done on the shed, but the sides haven't been put on it. Still need shingles, too. Had Austin pick up a tarp in town and covered the floor of it, and Rick and I put the sides in his metal container. Should be able to get it finished weekend after this one. Did get the yard light replaced. So nice to have it working, again! Have an amazing weekend. Stay safe and warm. Love and a vote.

Jack went to the vet today Dr. Jeff was tickled how far he has came, now if he would do some serious eating with out me stuffing it down his face I think he would speed up his recovery, I finally had to physically lay him down tonight, he was so tired from not laying down he looked like the leaning tower of Pessa. rode Lilly yesterday and played with her in the arena I am looking forward to taking along ride on her without the goat boys here in the near future.Love Suz and Lilly

Come visit me, Lilly.

really like bagpipes
Quick hello, VOTE, and update on us-I'm still busy at work and my dad's in the hospital-blood clot in a lung, on rehab floor now, but the blood thinners he's on leaves him unsteady as a fall risk. Went to TN to visit my daughter and son-in-law and to see their brand new house last sunday. Looking forward to have the weekend with my husband since I hardly see him right now and watch the super bowl together! Youngest daughter is performing a trumpet solo Saturday-she's good, and Bub and Bee are looking bored since they have the winter off. I got my cousin to follow the same concept, coz her horse she hasn't had long was growing mean-biting and kicking out! She confined him to a stall, only lunging him once a day or when she could, time wise-weather/school/work. He couldn't even see outside, and no fresh air flow. I told her to let him be a horse for the winter with turnouts, no work, and start back up in the spring when she can be more consistent. She took the advice and told me a few days ago that his attitude is now great, and he's behaving/listening again. I'll have to go into the 2nd part of this when spring arrives and consistent handling and riding begins. I'm her go to person because everything I've ever told/helped her with has been right for them, so I'm glad about that. She's my middle daughter's age, and first-time horse owner. I'm glad he's better!
After 11:00pm here so I need to go. got to get up early, just wanted to tell my HC friends I think of you everyday.....take care ya'all!!! Goodnight

Hi Donna Lee & herd, I hope all is going well with you this week :) The winds died down and I was going to see Koot on Monday, but then about 4pm through the night it was downpouring rain! Needless to say, that changed my mind about seeing Koot that night, but I'm going to see him tonight finally. How's your week going? Voted. XOXO Danya and Koot

Hi Donna Lee, I am happy to say, we got lucky. No snow, but I am waiting for the winds. I am just west of the storm, so feel really lucky. I thought it would warm up a bit. Nope, still in the teens and low 20's. Spring will be here soon. I just keep telling myself that. lol Have a great Tuesday. Vicki & Big Jax

Donna Lee, sounded like a beautiful service, and I bet It was nice to see family even though it was through this situation, Jack is making progress, he is walking but not eating very well, I am trying to get him to take in solid foods verses the baby food, he is taking on water which is good, he has a facination with it , if I don't watch him he would drown in it, I just keep a inch or so in the bucket I water him from but he goes all in and gets some up his nose if I am not watching him gonna even lower how much I put in the bucket, I stood him up this morning after I did all my prep work on him and he has not laid down yet, hope he does not fall over during the night and hurt himself, took Lilly for a short walk and he followed us, man this has been a challenge, love Suz and Lilly

Come visit me, Lilly.

Busy day today! I will be off work tomorrow and will haul out to the lake to ride. I will be riding by myself which I don’t mind sometimes. We don’t have a HOTM runner for March so it’s up for grabs-let me know if you are interested otherwise we will see what happens without one. Hard to believe January is nearly gone. Have a wonderful day! Whinnies & hugs =)

A BEAUTIFUL SERVICE...
It was an absolutely fabulous service. We were late starting because they had trouble getting everyone into the funeral home. Jackie's bell ringers, rang us(the family) to our seats, it was beautiful. some of Jackie's favorite music was played while they tried to get everyone seated. 3 different ministers briefly spoke and we prayed.. Jackie's son in law gave a wonderful speech, we all laughed right out loud, we all cried a bit and then 2 of her grandchildren spoke, they were just amazing, what nice kids. Adam played Amazing Grace on his bagpipes, so lovely. The bell ringers rang us all out and we went for lunch at a hall, it was a huge group of people all for Jackie, it was wonderful to see all her nieces and nephews there, Trevor came with some of the boys from London, one of the nieces came from BC and some cousins came from Scotland and North Carolina and California. There is a huge hole in that community and in the hearts of us who loved her, she is safe now, we left a vote, Love Donna Lee

THANKS FOR THE PRAYERS, IT HELPS A LOT.....
Today will be the tough one, Jackie's grandson Adam wants to play his bagpipes at the service, Amazing Grace, she was so proud of her family. Jackie was in a Bell Ringer group and they want to do something at the service as well, she was a very active member of her community and visitation was wonderful, people were lined up outside the building to get in to see her family, I'm going to need lots of tissues today....she will be missed, We left a vote, Love Donna Lee
