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.

spent 3.5 hours in the ER yesterday evening with my youngest son Casey who's 23 had a screw in his foot, very painful but a really cool looking xray for what it's worth! no riding yesterday maybe this evening I hope ,don't think Lilly minded....had the weirdest thing happen last night, woke up around 10:30 with a really wierd gut feeling that I should pull the goat feeder out of the goat house that Lilly is always sneaking food out of , it has a two key hole shaped cut out face on it, that the goats stick their heads in and they don't get hay all over,so I followed that feeling when I went out she had been eating out of it and there was still a little hay left, she had rotated it so she could get in it better , I don't know why I had such a feeling to remove it come over me ? maybe it was a intuition that if she did it one more time she might get her head stuck in it or what ??? but I followed my gut and took it out, like I said it was the weirdest gut feeling and the fact it woke me up well, Always go with the gut !!......love Suz and Lilly

Come visit me, Lilly.

Hi Donna Lee, I'm sure the horses are happy just getting attention until you ride again. It was another 100 degree day yesterday! I can't wait for it to finally cool down. I haven't been sleeping that great since it's been staying around 85 at night :( hoping to see Koot after work today. Voted. XOXO Danya and Koot

Hey Donna Lee, glad to hear you rain has stopped, at least long enough for you to get to the grocery store :) I went and saw Koot last night just to visit and give him some carrots about 7pm last night and it was still 90 degrees outside so definitely wasn't taking him out. Today is supposed to hit 100 again and then I think later this week it will finally be back in the 80s for a bit :) Hope you're having a great week. Voted. XOXO Danya and Koot

Hi Donna Lee, Sorry I wasn't able to leave blogs Friday-Sunday, but HC kept giving me error messages all weekend :( It reached really hot temperatures here. It was 105 on Sunday which is really rare for our area. The last time it was this hot was about 6 or 7 years ago! Voted. XOXO Danya and Koot

Had a very busy weekend , rode Lilly, cleaned the house, Mosier turned 100 so there were lots of celebrations going on, the weather was buetiful, should could use some rain though, lots of fires all over OR. and WA, preparing for the transition of loosing my job, after 23 years, the building I take care of is being sold, new company offered me a job but I am probably going to say no, kinda done with this career, now is the time to focus on Lilly, family, and the family business, oh and ME !! LOL. love Suz and Lilly

☆ Deacon and I had a wonderful trail ride at Lake Whitney Saturday. It started out cool at 60 but felt cooler. I started with a vest and jean jacket, and then went to just vest until 3 or so and then just my longer sleeved shirt-good ride with good friends!!! Have a wonderful day! Whinnies & hugs =)

Only 75 yesterday, light rain and 58 this AM. Found a how to video on horse massage, tried it yesterday on Cisco and he loved it, was actually groaning. He's so vocal. Hope the rain stays light so I can get some outside stuff done, actually getting some energy back with the cooler weather. Cheryl & Cisco

Hi Donna Lee, it was already about 90 today and felt sooo hot. Not looking forward to Saturday and Sunday when it's supposed to be 98! I'll probably just end up taking Koot some carrots Saturday morning or maybe taking him to the close turn out depending on how hot it is in the am. Voted. XOXO Danya and Koot

Still working on getting the shed cleaned up. We went through it and saved most of the Christmas ornaments. Sadie had to go through them, too. She kept redumping them out. She found a big red bow she liked and dropped it in the mud. What a character. She's ate up with bug bites, Spraying doesn't really help. I feel so bad for her. Leaving a big hug and a vote.

We normally don't get much rain. We go for months without any. This summer has been anything but normal. The rain started Monday morning and hit us hard. We're okay, but the flooding in other places, did a lot of damage. Homes were flooded out, cars were buried up to their windows and the Interstate, 1-10, was flooded out and shut down in places. Never seen such a mess. Canals and sewers overflowed, too. A lot of people weren't able to make it to work and schools were closed. People were catching fish in the streets and in their yards. Leaving love and a vote. Thankful for God's hand of protection.

What a day! Got into fire ants when I hayed the horses at noon, probably 20 or so bites on one leg. Been slathering them with Aspercreme to keep the itching down. Have been trying to sign up for a week to do A clinic at the Grasslands Bed 'n Barn in Nov, got an email this AM, they signed me up for the wrong one, then got an email a little while ago that I had TWO spots reserved at both clinics - never said anyone was coming with me, and have repeatedly told them I only want to do the one in Nov. Told them to just forget it, will do Steve's clinic in Nov.

Hi from Celeste
Yes we had some ripping damage from the storms, the lightning was very severe. We had 3 trees stuck in the far pasture field. Lost part of ther barn roof...again.
And the hail and driving rain put an end to the rest of the garden. I'm still cleaning up from it. Lacey, one of my minis is like you are. She is terrified of storms.
She gets so upset I have to put a loud radio on and sit with her in the barn stall in a storm.
Take care and God bless...love Celeste
