@JCnGrace Well it keeps the little one occupied for a short while and picking the yellow flowers put off the going to seed for a few more days. LOL Horses at least my Arab mare ate all the yellow flowers she could find in the fields along with red clover blossoms.

@JCnGrace, haha, the little black blob is the embryo :) not much else to look at at that point. They finished school on the 13th, thank goodness! Haha I do that too. I can't resist sweets lol and we've had SO MUCH RAIN. I'm over it.

@phantomhorse13, oh how I wish it won't be long for my arena lol someone laughed at me about that and now we have rain pretty much every day between now and June 5th. It stinks! Glad you're getting to ride!! But YUCK about the snow!! AWWWW, that picture of Link with the little boy! SO adorable!

@carshon, I am so sorry for your loss :(

@TuyaGirl, that sucks about your car! But what a beautiful view you have while working! Tuya is so pretty in your pictures <3

@lb27312, thank you! And I love the arena building too, but it's come to a screeching halt. Which makes me so sad! I'm so sorry about the loss of your mom :( and definitely don't feel bad about just popping on and saying something! No one is judging you here!

@PoptartShop, it was exciting seeing the ultrasound picture! And I wish the arena would keep going, ugh. I'm bummed it's at a standstill now. Yay for hitting the trails!


Whew, I'm way behind. Quite a few things to catch up on.

First, had a lesson Saturday. Along with a saddle fitting appointment. It was a bad lesson, but found a saddle that works AMAZING for both of us. The catch? It's $4300 new. Yeah, I'm looking at used. Which is hard to find in what we need, of course (18" seat with an XW gullet on what's called a Freedom tree). I have a lead, but waiting on the company to get back to my saddle fitter on if it is what they say it is. So annoying.

Then it rained and just... never stopped. The water was 2 feet from my barn. The creek came up a height of about 4 feet and was overtop the road that is in front of my barn. Someone posted a video which made it look like my barn was flooded, but we got lucky. Now we have rain in our forecast from now until June 5th. Lucky us. Means all arena work is at a halt.

We DID get great news last night though :) Izzie was scanned for her 30 day check up and we have a solid heartbeat! Everyone is pretty excited!!

That's about it from me though! Just work and rain, ugh to the rain.






And Nick's aunt took this adorable picture of our babies last night :) they snuggled with her :)



Hope everyone has a great weekend!

@RegalCharm Weather has improved greatly, thank goodness! I have been working, but Tuya has been out of my sight, as she is in another pasture.
Do you think that you could eventually get another horse or is it totally out of your plans?

@JCnGrace You are not the only one having crazy weather. It rained like the triple of what is supposed to this year (and I don't get to work, so I am well aware), and now we are going to face some kind of a heat wave like in there. No fun.
I get you on tacking a horse for a short ride. When it's like too cold or I am too lazy I'd rather not as well, just too much work for a short time.

@phantomhorse13 Yes, it was scary to see Tuya laying in there, I hope I was right and it was the girth.
You can hop in here and work her during the week as well, after JCnGrace's herd

@lb27312 Sometimes I don't reply other members as well. Life gets in the way, and it's ok. My job is from 7.30 am to 7.30 pm, so not much time left. I just enjoy reading this thread like a diary
Gosh what's wrong with the weather? That must have been scary!

@PoptartShop Those trails are beautiful! I HATE dogs that chase the horses, had my share of those as well.

@Tazzie Saying again - Yeah! Congratulations!! How exciting! The awful amount of rain this year has been insane in here this year too! So scary for you.

So ready for the weekend!
I didn't even get to see Tuya on lunch time because she is on another pasture and was never on the upper part. I miss riding her, but I confess that I hope that the other girl that now goes to the barn (I think a future girlfriend of BO's son, lol) does not ride with me, because she hates to ride mares (not going to comment on that......) and Tuya pulled all kinds of faces to the gelding she was riding. I spent the whole time avoiding her. As you remember I am not proud but Tuya kicks other horses sometimes.

Happy weekend to all of you!!

@JCnGrace : I think Link would give me a haircut that way if I wasn't paying attn.. he nipped the end of the dog's tail last year - thank god just snipping the hair and nothing else!! Wish you were closer cause I think we would have a blast riding together.

@RegalCharm : you are probably a pushover in terms of making your grands work and they know it. I have only been to one endurance ride in Ohio; in the south near Pedro. There is another in Kettering but I haven't made it to that one yet.

@PoptartShop : glad you and Promise are venturing out on your own! loose dogs are the worst. hope the new boots stay on better.

@lb27312 : it doesn't matter if you don't respond to each person - just post when you can. sorry to hear about the flooding; momma nature really has an attitude this year.

@Tazzie : this weather is crazy. i hope it doesn't actually rain for the next 2 weeks. woohoo for baby Izzie!!

@TuyaGirl : how silly the other rider at the barn doesn't like mares! hope you have a great weekend.


I have gotten more saddle time this week. The whole story is in my journal.

Monday, I hopped on George bareback to mosey around with Kestrel:





Tuesday, I got George out for a real ride.




After discussing his status with DH, we decided it was time for some additional testing - this time for PPID and EPM. I contacted the vet and she stopped to draw blood on her way home.


I have also been doing a lot of ground driving with Link to try to find a bit he likes.


Its not going well..


Wednesday, I went over to ride with Nicole. I rode Polo.





There is no joy equal to that found on the back of a horse.

@TuyaGirl About another horse, I don't know. Sometimes I think about it but the ones I had spoiled me and I don't think I could ever find one as good and loving as them. I got lucky I guess in having great horses.

@phantomhorse13 I am easy on the Grandkids as they are more fun to be around. LOL...Spoil them load them up on sugar and send them home. LOL Then sit back and listen to the parents complain and just smile at them.

I have heard the name Kettering but not Pedro. Will have to look that one up.

@Tazzie I am going to try and put some baby pic's up for you to look at. I loaded them this morning from a CD. They are of the little filly (less than 24 hours old) my mare and stallion produced. Cross your fingers this works

@RegalCharm : I always thought it was the grandparents job to spoil the kids, crank them up, and send them home! Pedro is very south and very small - nearest big town is Ironton. Loved the foal pics!! Do you have more as she grew?


I got a bit more saddle time at the end of the week. The whole story is in my journal.

Thursday, I started with Iggy:





Then, I rode Amish with Gina and Nik:





Friday, I got Phin out before the rain:

She went with the mare to Texas at around 6 months. I probably do but I will have to search through more CD's. Ironton I know where that is. That was a long drive from N.E. PA.

A baby deer, it is a wonder it didn't follow the big white deer home. LOL I wonder why the momma left it out in the open like that. Usually they hide them in some cover.

@RegalCharm , mine love clover but at some point it will give them the slobbers so I'll have to lock them out of the small pasture where it is more rampant. Not that slobbers hurt them so much but because they turn their barn floor into a swamp when they get them. A nasty smelling swamp at that!

Look at the pretty foal! Tell us more...did you keep or sell? what did her career end up being? what was her name?

@Tazzie , tonight I made some fudge but still waiting for it to cool and set up so I can sample it. LOL

More baby pictures! I always told my vet I wanted to know the sex and whether or not they had spots. He'd say, "What??? You don't need to know the color too?" (Sorrel + Sorrel LOL) So, have you started pampering Miss Izzie yet?


@TuyaGirl , the custom here is to put a red ribbon in their tail so that other riders know to stay a safe distance behind. Gracie would kick too if a non herd member got close enough to touch her. Gamble will spin around and rear at them but he only really ever did that to one guy who would never keep his horse from shoving it's nose up Gamble's butt no matter how often you told him to stay back. He still didn't even after Gamble tried to stomp him.

@phantomhorse13 , fingers crossed George passes his tests. Do you think Link would do fine in a hackamore? Gracie could never adjust to having a bit in her mouth. She'd stick her tongue out and there it would stay. By the end of the ride it would feel like a piece of dried up rubber. She would also balk at going forward numerous times over the course of a ride which she had never done while still being trained under saddle wearing her halter. Bought her a hack and she was happy which made me happy and we never revisited bits in her mouth for the rest of her life.

Ahhh, look at the newborn fawn! I haven't seen any yet but it's usually June before I do.

Today Frecks was in misery with a tick under her tail. I wasn't having any luck getting ahold of the thing to pull it out so told her she needed to wait until I cleaned her barn and then I'd get some medicine to put on it. She was adamant that she wanted it gone right now though by putting her rear end in front of my face every time I moved and lifting her tail. I finally got the dang thing pulled out and then she was a happy camper and went back to her normal hangout spot. No need to wonder how I know what they are thinking as they are all good about communicating. LOL

R.I.P. JC 5/19/85 - 12/9/14. You made my life better.

I know white clover will do that but mine never had a problem with red clover or the dandelion flowers.

Her registered name Adaya Bint Kasar pure blooded Arabian Filly. Polish lines. Adaya means God's Jewel, So in English it would be God's Jewel daughter of Kasar. She went with the mare to Texas at around 6 months. And the new owner sold her and then lost track of her. She was born in 2006.
