How We Met

Sing was bred at Walmac Farm in Lexington, KY. Her sire, High Brite, was a success as a race horse. He won over $1.5 million and became a stud horse. She was sold at Keeneland for $7000 to Randy Preston trainer. She raced 4 times and was out of the money each and every time so he sold her to a friend he had here in the Houston area. She was at an eventing barn here. She was too small for the woman who had intended to buy her. I looked at her and decided to buy her. She has a big heart and is quite brave about trying anything I ask of her..

Hi Sing & Herd, here's a vote for ya. Had to run to town and get grain today and fuel up Beast. Tomorrow will be loading up hay, grain, supplements, dog food, my food, you know the list! Today they enjoyed more time off, out grazing mid-day for a couple of hours. Then it started to get really hot and the bugs started to get really bad. Unless I deep them in fly spray, and I don't even know then if that'll work. The flies are just so pesky! Got two pastures and half of around the indoor mowed this afternoon. Darn horse flies were even attacking me while mowing! They hot tarred our road and then put down a layer of 3/8 inch stone and rolled it. But it's a dusty mess and stones flying all over cause the idiots still insist on driving like it's the Indy 500! Hope it packs down and gets quite over night. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Hi Sing & Herd, here's a vote for ya. First let me say that Angel H.T. thanks everyone for the Congrats on his HOTD win today! Well we did good, not my best or should I say her best. But good. We got a storm on Thursday afternoon and that helped lower the temps. Friday we did great in Halter and showmanship. And Marissa had an awesome pattern in Open Trail. Placed well out of 15 horses. I was very happy. But at 7:30 pm when our Ranch Riding was going to go off, they moved us to ring 3 and behind and next to it, they were throwing all the standards and poles for the jumping classes the next day. Several of us had spooky horses and decided to scratch for safety's sake. Marissa didn't want me getting dumped and hurt. Saturday we put more Halter national points on her and did even better in showmanship. I was on my game! Sunday Marissa had a student in the Fair FEI jumping and she's a 14 year old girl with some issues, so Marissa had to forego our Trail class and I had to ride the Open Ranch Riding. I did well in my two Horsemanship Classes, even getting a 2 and 3. Won my Amy Ranch Riding and was second under both judges in the Open Division. Was very pleased with Paige. Today they got the day out on grass, they were happy. Indy had lot's of compliments from the fair goers that walked the barns. He was lunged daily. This weekend he'll be showing in 3 gelding classes. Told him to put his game face on. It was hot showing in the sun, temps were in the mid 80's most of the time all 3 days. Have pictures on FB for those who have it. I'm still tired. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Susie made August HOTM...yip yip hooray!! We will definitely celebrate with the herd. I told my husband Susie gets to do whatever she wants today because she is Queen. Thanks so much HC friends for all your votes and support. We could not have done it without you. Susie is happy to be your Top Horse for this month. I look forward to sharing more of Susie's escapades with our HC friends...because you know there will be more. lol

As you know, Susie survived all her tragic incidents and accidents. Through it all she has been a real trooper. She is the biggest horse in the pasture, but she allows the other horses to boss her around. She does anything you ask of her. She is such a sweet and playful mare. I call Susie my “million dollar” horse. One because of all the time, effort and expense we have invested in her, but the second and main reason is because nobody has enough money to buy Susie. She is worth the world to me. She has found her forever home. She will live here at our pasture for as long as she is alive and she will be laid to rest next to dear sweet Lollipop, when her time ends. She has touched my heart in a way that I can’t explain. I hope she has touched yours in some way through her story. The End.~~~~
Our HOTM run has come to an end. I have enjoyed sharing Susie’s story with you. Thanks to all my HC friends for your support. (Left a big thank you vote)

November 1st Susie is home and once again she is confined to the barn. We are having to change her bandages every 3 to 5 days. This is getting to be a task. Also having to clean out the barn everyday, with her many piles of manure and wet areas. lol Susie was getting bored being confined, away from the herd. So on November 16th, my husband decided to let Susie out of the barn and put her in a small pen area. Well you know Susie…she was not content to be outside, she wanted to be with the herd. So she tried to jump the fence and managed to get her leg caught in the square fencing. Yes, it was her left rear leg. We brought her in, doctored her leg and bandaged it up. She had completely messed up the grafting process. She remained in the barn another 10 days. At this point the wound had pretty much healed but the hair had not regrown. We knew that this was the best we could hope for, so we removed her bandage and set her free.

Hi Sing & Herd, here's a vote for ya. Well another hot humid one today. Feels like was 96 with a real of 92 again. Started packing by 8 am and was done in about 90 minutes of loading bedding, hay and all the other major stuff. I was dripping wet in sweat! Gave Indy and Paige their show shaves and then did our Showmanship patterns in the indoor with Paige. Only stayed in there about 15 minutes and then back to the barn and 6 fans going! We'll be leaving about 10 am tomorrow, since it's only a 30 minute drive to the Fair Grounds. Hopefully beating out the thunder storms and getting all settled in. Will miss y'all and might list on FB if I have time. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

In answer to the question as to what caused the proliferative lesion, not really sure. Not sure why she got pythium and the other horses at the same pasture didn't. They did say that her immune system could have played a part. The birth of her foal could have weakened her immune system and made her more susceptible to diseases. After all of this we did put her on a supplement for her immune system called Tri-Mune.~~~

The grafting process consisted of taking punch grafts from Susie’s left side of her neck underneath her mane. They took a total of 22 punch grafts and implanted them into the wound bed. Her leg was bandaged and they would wait five days before the bandage could be removed. Susie remained at LSU until October 31st. Halloween day she retuned home after a total of 17 days. Now the fun begins! lol (A click on the horseshoe)

Hi Sing & Herd, here's a vote for ya. Well it was a hot humid one today. Heat index was at 95 degrees, straight up temp was 90! So Indy and Paige were both only lunged for 15 minutes, with every fan going in the indoor, plus the big 36 round fan by the one door way. So it wasn't all that bad in there out of the sun and humidity. Then I waited for the sun to move and shade the backside and northeast side and then I weed whacked all that down. Moved the trailer into the driveway closer to the garages and will start to pack it up tomorrow. Remembering to bring a ton of electrolytes for both the horses, dog and myself. Although the dog will be into the trailer almost 24/7 in the A/C! Lucky him! Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

Almost at the end of our HOTM run...yay! Keep the votes coming and thank you.~~~

Susie was going to have to return to LSU to have skin grafts done. The wound would not completely heal without having the grafts done. They needed the wound to start healing first and then after it reached a certain point, they were going to implant the skin grafts into the wound. She returned to LSU on October 15th. However the wound bed was not ready for the grafting, so she stayed there and on October 22nd they preceded with the grafting process. (Voted)

Here's a click on your horseshoe. Rode yesterday, bareback. And we loped, his did good. The only attitude was when he tripped he bucked. That's what he is know to do. It's weird. But luckily he didn't throw me.

My goodness! Horses are so smart. I've noticed that Sadie sometimes has what looks like dried drops of water on her back. Monday, she filled her mouth with water and tossed it on her back. How cool is it that she knows how to cool herself off? I don't know if this is something horses normally do, or if she was inspired by being hosed down or cooling off in the sprinkler. Just amazing! So thankful for the wonderful things we learn from our four legged loved ones. Love always and a vote.

Hi Sing & Herd, here's a vote for ya. Are you still doing the stretching exercises with them? How's Smooch's feet now? Is Buttercup still bucking on ya? Got a lot of little things done today. Spread out 200 lbs of Mag/Cal in the indoor in the super dry and dusty areas, yes I have those, along with some still wet spots from that storm almost 2 weeks ago now! UGH! Well last night we had that storm, I don't think we've ever had lightning and thunder that lasted so long, it was well over two hours of it. And the rains finally came, heavy for a while too, I was worried about more seeping into the indoor on the low side, but all was well. Rain gauge said one inch. Today was major food shopping day and get all that's needed for our horse show this Thursday when we leave. Horses were out late in the afternoon, as it was very hot and humid earlier, then it seemed to drop in humidity and a nice breeze came in. Tomorrow it's back to riding and start to pack up the trailer. Love ya, Marion and the blondes.

The next day October 25th, a surgical excision of the lesion was done. Preliminary results were not consistent with pythium. However a culture was taken and sent off for testing. The initial diagnosis was an ulcerative and proliferative lesion on the lateral aspect of left rear pastern. After the surgery was done Susie remained at LSU for 9 days, where she was confined to a stall and her bandages changed every 3 days. She was sent home on October 2nd. We were told to keep her confined to her stall. However we separated the barn to give her two stalls and the middle isle, where we placed a round hay bale for her to eat. We also had to change her bandages every 3 days. This again was just like when she had her head wound. It is very difficult for someone, without any medical background, to apply these bandages. This bandage consisted of six steps (telfa pad, white cling gauze, cotton combine, brown gauze, vetwrap and elasticon). Try putting this on all while the horse is moving. lol Just lucky there were two of us working together. Susie seemed to be enjoying, once again being treated like a queen. Here's a vote.

Hear you about the heat. Was finally able to saddle and do groundwork with Cisco yesterday, Nugget stayed calm. He was awesome. So hot and humid this AM, was sweating when I came in from feeding and topping up water tubs, so am staying inside most of the day. Will be heading up to Throwaway Ponies on Weds, see if I can find a nice, gentle mare for a companion for Nugget when Cisco and I are gone.

thought of all of the Horse Channel members and their horses, this morning while I made a short cut back to the house, and watched the heavy dew of water fly up from the front of my boots. Very cool out, and I wish I could share it with everyone. But then, I would have to share the weeks of 30 below and 10 foot high snow banks.

So sorry it's so miserabley hot and dry for you. Dog days of summer, for sure. We're kind of moderate here, thank Goodness, mid 90s and rain about every 6-10 days. Not bad for late July. The horses are usually sweaty just standing around grazing, so they aren't getting much riding now either, and when they do, it's slow and short with a hosing off afterward.
Good to hear from you. I guess your heat remains through august, maybe a week or 2 in to Sept before it breaks? Oi! Hang in there.

I'm on late tonight, still on vacation so my schedule is all off. lol~~~~~

O.K. here comes Susie’s drama. It is October 24, 2012, only two months after Lollipop’s death. We bring Susie back to LSU. This time she has a lesion on her left rear pastern. We noticed it a couple of days before and decided this time we would go straight to LSU. We thought for sure that it was the pythium again, it looked just like the lesion on her head. We didn’t even bother to call a vet, we loaded her up and headed to LSU. We knew she would be in great hands. Left a vote.

Just want to say thanks again for all the support and the votes. Keep them coming! Just one more week to go! The story continues...

So what’s going on with Susie all this while…you ask. Don’t worry Susie is laying back just waiting to spring some more of her drama on us. As you can see never a dull moment around here. With a herd of horses, especially like mine, there is always something going on. There may not be a lot of riding activity going on, but there is a heck of a lot of every other activity going on here. lol (Another click on the horseshoe)

On late today had a spa day and lunch with my Mom and sisters. Very relaxing day. ~~~

On August 23rd Lollipop was euthanized, at the age of 24. This was a horrible day. I remember it well. Lollipop was my husband’s favorite horse. She was the best horse he’d ever had or would ever have. He loved her so much and still speaks of her fondly. He had called the vet and told him that he needed to have Lolli put down. They set up a time when he could come out. I went to work that morning, but told my supervisor that I would need to leave for a while that afternoon. Knowing the circumstances she of course said no problem. My husband called me when the vet was on his way. I got to the pasture and the rest of the horses were in their stalls. We led Lolli out to the pasture near where she would be buried. My husband said his goodbyes to his sweet mare and he left to go continue digging the hole. I held Lolli out in the pasture waiting for the vet to arrive. I spoke to her and comforted her all the while. I wanted to let her know that her baby Ace would be fine, that Susie would love and care for him. I told her that she would be going to a much better place, where she could run and play, and would no longer be in pain. Soon the vet arrived and with two quick injections, Lolli was gone and the tears came. My husband could not watch this happen but when it was over, he came and picked her up with the tractor and carried her to the hole he had dug. She is buried on our pasture where we can visit with her everyday. The herd of course mourned her for the next several days. They seemed lost without her, she was the Alpha mare. However Gypsy soon took over the herd and things got back to somewhat normal.

That was the third reason we decided to keep Ace. He was a part of Lollipop and we could keep her with us through him. RIP Lollipop.~~~~ Here's your vote.

It’s August 2012 now. Lollipop seemed to be having more and more trouble with her feet. We had been watching her pretty closely the past few months. She was laying down more in the pasture and for longer periods of time. We of course talked to the farrier about her, but he said since the coffin bone had already rotated, nothing could be done to stop it. There of course were options like certain type of horseshoes that would help with the pain. Early on we did buy her some boots to wear whenever we rode. We also had her on a herbal supplement , called herbal bute. This stuff really helped her. But we knew it was only a matter of time. She started having trouble coming into the barn to eat. We would have to go out to her in the pasture and feed her. This was hard to watch. My husband made the decision that something had to be done. (Left a vote)
