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'M BREATHING OK, JUST TOO HOT FOR ME...
Well, let's see, Charlie is kicking much less, and with all the padding up, I feel better about less chance of injury. From his behavior under saddle I have to say he has NO UNSOUNDNESS, all is well. Sterly is plugging along she never complains, we keep a close eye this time of year, if she is laboring in her breathing we put her in with her big fan on, she usually settles within 10 minutes. If it is real bad I can give her a bit of Ventipulimin, but they can get dependent on it, so I only use it when necessary. We had a great ride yesterday before it got too hot, today is forecast for showers, sounds like vacuuming and laundry, ugh..we voted, Love Donna Lee

OMG, your "overage" is pretty close to our electric bill for the year, and that includes the barn and well - we probably run around $1500-1600 a year for electric. Sorry about your hands, hope the OT is helping, maybe the rest this weekend will help some, too. Amanda has one more dose of chemo, then mastectomy, then radiation - I think she said 25 treatments, then hysterectomy and reconstructive surgery. She's so brave - that's a lot to be looking at. Thank God her husband is so wonderful (kids, too) and she rides as much as she can. They are doing 3 clinics this fall, plan on going to all of them.

LONG WEEKEND, YEAH...
Good Morning, I had lots of OT this week, my hands are killing me...I'm still playing catch up from last winter when Trevor was with us, I'm not complaining but, we heat with propane and it was the coldest winter in 22 years, plus propane prices went up 40% plus Trev was cold and so we kept the house warm for him, as a result we were $1206 over budget on heat. It has to be paid by September 1, so the new budget can start, do I need OT?? Yes I do. Charlie and Sterly are good, we will have a nice ride today, this is a long weekend, yippee. we voted, Love Donna Lee

Hi Donna Lee & herd, So sorry for being offline a lot lately. The past two weeks have been pretty busy. I had a sinus infection which caused me not to even see Koot for a week which was an absolute bummer and because of that I won't be able to compete in the barrel race August 30th since Koot hasn't been exercised enough. I'm pretty bummed about that, but I don't want to chance hurting him. I took Koot for a ride Sunday and then a short trail last night with my pup, Tig. They had a great time. How are things with you? Have you gotten horsey time in? Koot and I still plan to run for October HOTM so please vote for us :) thanks! Voted. XOXO Danya and Koot

Come visit me, Kootenai.

Sorry for not being on a lot! I have been busy. Thanks for all Spangle's support!

The rest of Spangle's story:
Spangle still goes through bratty phases, but he has become nicer to Rose. He also is doing better under saddle. We are considering sending him to a trainer, but haven’t decided. The most important thing is that he is nicer to Rose. I hope you enjoyed Spangle’s story!

♡ I was a very lazy lady yesterday. I pretty much just rested. I haven’t had a vacation sense February and it is surely getting to me. I can’t take any time off until after the 19th of September. I fed yesterday morning and just gave everyone a big hug and didn’t get back out until after 5 pm. I turned them out to graze awhile before evening feeding time. Here is a hug, love & a Wednesday vote :)

HI
Wow, The last time I was on to blog was in June! Boy have I been busy. Let's see if I can remember everything that's been going on lately.

1st: I've added several new categories for my supervisor duties! I'm now overseeing all of the horse breeds and pasture management areas. I'm going to add all of the Equestrian sports cat's as well.

2nd: I'm hunting a new paying job as my supervisory role is volunteer and I'm not paid for that job. I'm applying at some banks and credit unions near my house. If I have no luck with those places then there are some secretarial positions and paralegal positions open. I would be looking for V.A work, but right now they are only hiring techs and I do not have my boards as of yet.

3rd: I'm going to head back to college to get my Veterinarian Technicians degree and boards. I'm also looking at getting a degree in equine nutrition, might add a basic farriers class to that, and maybe a class for saddle fitting and business management. Not 100% sure what all I want to do yet or how much all of this will cost, but I can take it one step at a time.

4th: My Mema (age 84..Shhh, don't tell her I told you her age. ;D ) Slipped and injured her knee and might have to have it replaced. Nobody is happy about this as see wants to go back to working, she hates being at home with nothing to do.

5th: I completely threw my back out three different times in the past month and a half and have been utterly miserable. I haven't been able to ride at all, I can barely walk, but I am getting better slowly.

6th:I had Shawn's youngest son James for four weeks during the summer. Shawn had to work and I was home anyways with my bad back, so I kept him. It was just like being a nanny again, except he didn't go home at night, LOL. (There was no escape! No escape I tell you! XD)

7th:We lost one of old ferals. Snippy passed away a few weeks ago, leaving us with one much younger cat to care for. I miss Snippy, he was a good old guy.

8th: I'm incredibly tan, I'm typically so pale and pasty white that you could call me translucent! Not any more, LOL. The perks of living in a coastal town I guess, even an equestrians legs will get tanned down here, LOL.

9th: Although I am still on HC, I am now on Horseforum.com and chronicle of the horse forum daily as it's more interactive and I enjoy helping out and answering questions. If any of y'all are on there, feel free to look me up and send a friend request. I'm known as Horseychick87 on both forums. :)

I hope everyone is doing great and hope to hear from you soon. Lots of hugs, love and votes.

Sorry Sterl had such a bad day yesterday. Maybe she needs AC? Mine are all doing well, Cisco's pastern is completely closed and, if it doesn't rain, should be able to ride in a couple of days. Very hot, chance of rain all week and somewhat cooler temps, then back to triple digits on Sept 1st. Cheryl & Cisco
