I think Spring is finally here!! Yeah!!   We have been doing some riding, but not on trail yet due to the mud.  Also a lot of spring clean up.  It is amazing to me how much a person can ignore in their life when they are just a shell.  Piles of crap all over broken fence run down horse shelters and the list goes on.  Well instead of looking at the shit Todd and I dug in with both hands and started going to work.  We burned for a complete 15 hrs- HOLY CRAP!  The girls helped out and the place is starting to shape up.  We have a long way to go but we also have a vision and we will definitely take breaks to go riding. HAPPY TRAILS EVERYONE!!

My Rebel

I love seeing my cover page, it really makes me miss warm weather and horseback riding.  Right now out side it is a winter wonderland,  the wind is blowing and the snow is coming down and I am so glad that I am on the inside looking out.
I rode a little bit the other day bareback on Belle  and she did amazing and I stayed on... Yeah!!!! But riding bareback really reminds the body how out of shape it really is. lol.  I also got my cinchchics hay nets in the mail and Todd put them on and they are working great.  Hopefully it truly saves me money like they proclaim.  Pray for better riding weather and stay safe.

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO EVERONE!!!!.   It is the year of the HORSE, so its going to be a wonderful prosperous year.  In the next few months my life will change but for the better- its in the stars.  I have absorbed a lot in my life in the past few years and now it is my turn to take charge and take the reins.  So I will.  I have a lot of special people in my life that have helped me through difficult times and I am grateful for everyone of them.  I thank GOD everyday for  the things he has blessed me with and the people he has brought into my life---because life has just got GREATER!

PLANS FOR THE YEAR:  APPRECIATE everything that I have been blessed with and spend more time with my kids.  Hold and love the people that love me.  Ride a little more with the man that I absolutely adore.  Maybe do some remodeling and plan a vacation.  Sounds like one hell of a year...BRING IT ON!!!!!  Come on Spring!

The rain has finally stopped and its actually warm out.   Everybody enjoy because below normal temps for the rest of the week.  Got to ride Belle for a bit this weekend, she did amazing, if only Jada would give her a chance they would be unstoppable......  Maybe we might have to ride for a while today as long as the weather is good.   The arena is watered and going to be dragged today we might as well mess it up. Happy Trails Everybody and live each day to the fullest!!!!!! Remember hug everyone you love and tell them always how you feel.

The wind is whistling outside, where I am suppose to be, but am clearly dragging my feet, cause I just don't want to go out there.   YUCK!!!!  I need to move some horses to winter pastures and pick up a few things.   Why is it when you think you have everything done something else pops up???  Bundle up and get outside and get it done---that is what I'm saying to myself.   One last thing hats off to all the Veterans out there, we love you and thank you for everything!!!

I am so not ready for this weather, winter is pretty and all but the transition ready sucks!!!!  Thank goodness the kids are all doing great in school and the horses are all fat and sassy. Hoping to do some winter riding in lots of fluffy snow. Oh update on Maddy's horse Coco, her limes has seem to go dormat for now thank GOD, she does show a little swelling when she is rode multiple days in a row, but other than that she has been good.

Update on my brother God bless his soul he lost his fight with cancer a few weeks ago.  The good LORD decided to take him home, now all of his suffering is no more.  Now him and our father can really catch up, drink some beer, and catch some fish:-)

When a person goes through hard times whether it is loss of loved one, loss of job, or divorce, it really makes a person step back and really,  I mean really look at their life. Maybe ask yourself, Where am I  headed and is this where I want to be?????? You might be surprised how you answer that question.   All I now is that I love my girls to pieces and want to protect them from all the dangers in life---but as a parent we can just guide them and love them unconditionally and pray that they will go down the right path or at least not stray so far:-)  Remember daily to hug all u love and make sure to let them know how much they mean to you-----NEVER EVER take your life for granted because it truly is a gift that was given to us.

The wind is whistling outside and I have a few minutes before I head off to work.  The house is so quiet, the kids are with their father this week and I so miss them.   They fill the house with warmth and craziness, which I love.   Have not been doing any riding lately just is a little to cold for me to be out there, I swear the sun hasn't been out in a week-----can be a little depressing.

For those who don't know already I have found my soul mate, didn't no this really existed until now.  It is truly amazing the feelings one person can actually feel and how people can see it shine right through ones self, it gives me the chills just thinking about it. We will from this day on be starting our adventure in life that will be amazing, I see a lot of horseback riding and traveling in the future.  I want the girls to be able to see all the things that GOD has created and if we can do that on horseback that would be absolutely wonderful.  Happy Trails to everyone and live each day like its your last!!!!

Been without a computer for a while, but back in business now.   A lot of changes in my life all for the good.  Did some horseback riding this fall at Wild Rock in Clark County, beautiful place.  Met a lot of great people.  Definitely going back.  Winter is knocking at our door and I so hate to open it, but really don't have a choice.  Busy draining hoses,, putting stuff away, moving horses around trying to prepare the best I can for the long winter ahead.   I decided when I retire I am going to be a snowbird, move somewhere warm until Wisconsin decides to warm up.lol.

I don't know if I talked about the horse that I picked up few months ago, I named him Cisco.  A beautiful smutty buckskin, 14.3 H with a golden attitude, unfortunately he got diagnosed with being neurological.  Meaning he is unsafe to ride because he really don't know where his feet are, it would only get worse, so I decided to put him down, making me .sad but also realizing it is the best for him. All I know is that an angel has one hell of a horse to ride.  Happy and sad day!!

Spent the weekend with some friends up north Riding horse of course. The weather was beautiful for riding, I rode Belle this weekend and she did amazing, I so wish I could duplicate her in a grullo color. LOL.  The first day we rode with Myron and Cricket and we drank some experimental Whop that wasn't to bad.  Second day it was just Eric, Annette and myself we worked on getting Twiggy through the water and after the 5th puddle she did amazing, but none of the horses thought it was to cool when a group of riders came up from behind wearing jingle bells, but we survived.  Now we have to get jingle bells.I swear its never ending.

 Well tonight the vet was out to look at Maddy's horse Coco, her legs have been swelling not sure what was wrong---well Dr thinks its Lyme's.   That sucks just when we found a good one for Madison now we have to go through this, my poor little girl.   I know I shouldn't jump to conclusions but it isn't looking good, we will no more the beginning of next week. Treatment $850 for 7 days and not guaranteed to fix her.  I will keep you posted.  Probably going to have to horse shop again:-(

Another week up north-----It was awesome, none of us ever want to come back home.  I think the horses like it better than we do. lol.  Hugs and kisses every day from little girls that love them dearly.  After camping and riding like we did now I know why I do this, the kids are growing up right before my eyes and becoming the future's horse women.  Every time we go out and ride they just become better and better and it brings tears to my eyes--because for a while I thought I would be doing this journey alone.   Now I see I will not be--taller the hill the better--the girls just giggle and I smile, because it is a wonderful thing.  Thank you GOD for all you have given us because we are truly blessed!
