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.

Yes, it will be a rough few months.
Cisco was pretty bouncy when I took him took out and tied him to clean his stall this AM, finally had to put him back in and wait for Scott to come hold him for me. He's been much calmer when being handgrazed. Would love to put him out in the roundpen, but am afraid he'll run and act silly. Going to try cutting his bute a bit tonight and see how he does.

Hi Donna Lee & herd, sorry it's been a little bit since I've been online. I blame work lol. Tax season started so with that and doing all the paperwork to buy this home has really taken a lot of my free time. How are you doing though? I was able to see Koot on Sunday but it was sooo extremely windy I didn't take him out. I just groomed him and hung out with him and gave him treats :) Voted. XOXO Danya and Koot

it was overcast, chilly, and windy today, and we even saw 4 or 5 snowflakes whirling around. the horses were full of themselves, running and bucking out in the pasture like wild things. so i contented myself with just doing BJs groundwork. he seems to be getting stronger, though he still gets his back feet tangled up sometimes. his groundwork skills are getting pretty impressive with all this practice.
i hope you had a good tuesday with a little horse time as well. take care.

Picked Cisco up today. Did the bandage change under vet's supervision. She didn't give him bute last night, said he was sore this morning, so will be keeping him on bute for awhile. Girls were glad to see him, he whinnied once and then wanted to eat grass, so let him graze a few minutes before stalling him. Vet said her entire family has fallen in love with him.

Well, yesterday, we got a "peek" at spring, and then over night Mother Nature just covered it all up with 3-4 inches of snow and drifting too. For some reason, Mother Nature seems to like to torment us, but at least it's not muddy out yet. Temps this week, are going to be low, with highs just over 0. What's that old saying "Put another log on the fire". Whisper and the little herd are sending you a morning vote.

♥ I am off work tomorrow. I will stop at TSC after work to pick up feed and food for the cats & dog. Then in the morning I will go to the grocery store for us, and have to get my hair trimmed at 11:30 am. I hope the rest of the day will be spent riding or at least grooming them well! Have a wonderful week everyone ♥

A Vote for You!!
What a great thing to look forward to....seeing your favorite person in person.
Just trying to get a few more votes in this morning. Nice outside this morning, I think it was 17 when I did chores, up to 23 now. Light snow, a inch or so, each night, but its not enough to cover up my trail across the lawn to the barn/shed. I wish I had a real barn, but the Menard shed is divided into a shop, and back part I have hay, a tack room, feed room, which is now filled with "stuff". Pen for the babies, Pickles and Paisley, plus a pen for the noisey guineas hens. Hope your weekend is great.

Buddy Guy here I come...
So after weeks of scouring the Buddy Guy website and checking the Canadian appearances, remember I was hoping he would add London. He didn't, but one day about a week ago I saw a small blurb that said Buddy Guy in Kitchener Ontario, I thought it must have been a previous show, but I checked it out and sure enough he is only playing two Canadian stops on this tour, Toronto and Kitchener. Kitchener is pretty close to us, but when I went to the Box Office there were only "nose bleed" seats left. I was so upset that this show was not on the Official buddy Guy website and all the great seats were sold already. Remember no one has worse luck than me...Then I saw an ad for two front row seats for re sale. David warned me that ticket fraud is a big deal, so be very careful. Long story short, turns out the man that purchased these tickets is also a huge fan, however, he has a vacation conflict for the day of the show, he wasn't sure they would be back in time so he decided to sell the tickets. He wanted the same as he paid, not looking to make a profit. I contacted the Box Office to verify that these were in fact legitimate seats and after they confirmed it, I said SOLD. April 20, Centre in the Square Kitchener Ontario. early retirement present for me. I posted a pic of the theatre, and the two yellow dots are our seats. I'm so excited. Have a great weekend. Love Donna Lee

How's the shoulder doing? Hope it's not bothering you too much. Have a crew coming out Monday to put down gravel in the stall and front of the barn (still wet). They are even going to put down the stall mats for us (I just need to find 16). We did a swap, so will not be out of pocket.

What a surprise to see sweet Kisses as HOTD. I will have to send Stephanie a messages. She just sent me a bunch of pictures of Kisses about 2 days ago, so I will have to post them. One is of her daughter, 5 riding Kisses. Stephanie, said Kisses learned to just except a rider, and saddle that riding is just second nature to Kisses. That you for the vote, it is very much appreciated.

Yay! Corral panels are up. A friend helped me with them. She brought a 5 year old girl named Rosie with her. Lisa said Rosie has the mental capacity of a 2 year old. She brought a bag of carrots for Sadie and fed them to her. Rosie, also, rode bareback. My internet is running soooo slow. Taking forever to vote. Hope you're all doing well.
