I told you all about how windy it is here up on this hill… and how the large shelter in the large pasture – went boom!  In case you missed that story, here it is.

Hmmmm.  If it is that windy, maybe I need to move where I put the shelter, next time…   Truthfully, just about everywhere you stand in that pasture, you feel wind when it’s windy.

But, there is a stand of trees outside of the paddock that break some of the breeze, so I figured that would be the best place to put up the new shelter.

Note to self:  It is amazing what you learn (how much smarter you are) after you’ve lived in a place for a couple of years….

This month, I purchased a 16 x 8 shelter and the guys came to set it up!   I love getting things done!

Anyway, now, when I bring Dalton home, I will have enough cover for everybody.  I could have brought Dalton home now, but I want all my options available, in case he doesn’t get along nextdoor to Annie, I can put him next to Finn instead.  It will be easier for me to jockey everyone around now, since all of the paddocks have adequate shade and shelter.

Phew!  I’ll be bringing Dalton home sometime before Aug 1.

PUTTING UP THE SHELTER (in the wind…)

The guys arrive – on a windy evening…

We decide to use the fence as the anchor on the one side with the trees. We will use Tposts for the other sides.

They brought their dog. She’s really sweet.

I took this in the shelter of the trees… I so wish the sun was on the other side of these trees so the horses would have natural shade… but the sun is on the other side. The trees I planted are still too small to throw shade. You can see them in the background.

The horses have the best view! The original owners should have built the house on this hill! Instead, the horses have a 360 degree view of Paso Robles wine country! (We did put up the panels and shade cloth, but I didn’t take any pics because this was prettier.)  Note Marty’s Alley of trees in the background.  They are actually taller than Hubby, they just look really small.  I fertilized them all today.  29 trees up there that will, eventually, shade this pasture.

Horse And Man by Dawndi - 2d ago

So for a couple of years now, I’ve had a ‘hitch in my giddyup’, so to speak.  And, I’ve had a slight limp (off and on) since my Lyme diagnosis in 2010.

It all came on rapidly in 2010, but after my initial bout, I have managed the Lyme fairly well… My hips would hurt or my knee would hurt or I would have difficulty getting in and out of a car… but I’d get better – so I didn’t think much of it.

However, over time, (…it is amazing what you get used to if it comes on slowly.  Kinda like gaining weight slowly.  Gaining weight over 4 years doesn’t seem as noticeable as when you gain it in 4 months…) it got worse and I didn’t notice.

That’s what happened to me.  It all happened slowly over 9 years… so I just went with it.

UNTIL…

As I was meeting Dalton at Sweetbeau Horses and riding him over there in the last several months, I noticed that it really hurt to ride.  Hmmmm.  I figured I was having a Lyme flare.  So I had my physical therapist work me over.  And, that helped.  But the next day, I was sore again.

Then… we went to Wyoming and I could hardly ride.  Mounting was pain, sitting on a horse was pain, and trotting… well, NO WAY.

At that time, our friend, who is a spine surgeon, arranged for a cortisone shot so that I could enjoy my time in Wyoming.

But, it didn’t stop all the pain, like I was told it would.  Hmmmm.  Only the pain on the OUTSIDE was reduced.  The pain on the INSIDE (groin) was still there.

So… when I got home, I called my DR to ask for a referral to an orthopedist.  She highly recommended a DR (whose wife is a horse person!) and I made an appointment for last week.

I went on Friday.

The DR was kind and took an Xray, which they have to do for insurance purposes before they do an MRI to look at soft tissue injuries like I thought I had (IT Band Syndrome and Labrum tear).

Well… after reading the Xray, the DR walked in and told me that I didn’t need an MRI because he could see the issue on my Xray.

??  (He didn’t look excited or happy for me…)

He continued that when he ‘can see it on an Xray,  it is very clear and indisputable’.

??   What is clear and indisputable?

He said that I had the hips of a geriatric woman.  The constant inflammation (Lyme) had degraded my soft tissue and bone.  At this point, I have bone on bone and most of my hip socket is gone.  He told me that I’m like a big dog with hip dysplasia – and that I needed to be careful not to dislocate my hips.

He said I needed double hip replacement.  Soon.

Even though I’m not old enough to receive a double replacement (because they don’t want you to outlive your new hips…), he said he thinks we need to do this asap to get my quality of life back.  He told me that ‘nowadays’ it is much easier and I’d be back to work in 2 weeks.

He told me that I must have a high threshold for pain to tolerate the disintegration in my hips.

It is amazing what you get used to…

SO.

So.  Well then.  I decided to show the xray to another DR who agreed.  Crap.  But, on the other hand, at least I know what is wrong with me and that it can be fixed – which is awesome.

Like my friend said, “Now you will be BIONIC and you’ll feel like a million bucks!”

I have to do 2 months of physical therapy (for the insurance to be approved for surgery) and then I’ll probably have the procedure around Christmas, when the AirBnB is slow – but before the end of the year so our insurance deductible won’t be so bad.

My inner voice has been playing tricks with me about it all… Like, will my shoulders be next?  Will the Lyme eat away at all of my joints?

I put those thought away and thought about all the times I’ve been off balance lately.  How I tend to not want to do much with my horses on ground that isn’t level.  I’m not as coordinated because I am guarded – guarding where it hurts.  And, I’m always tired.

Constant pain makes you tired.

It all makes sense – now.

AND SO…

And so… this is why you haven’t been seeing me ride for a while.

I never, ever, ever thought this was what was wrong with me.  I’m shocked – in shock – but coming to terms.

I’m so glad I didn’t know this before I agreed to adopt Dalton, or I would have been inclined to not adopt until I was better, and I would have missed out on an incredible horse.

I’m excited to be me again.

Sunday – yes, Sunday – the Farrier came!  He had to cancel our appointment during the week, so since he was coming my way to visit his sister on Sunday anyway, he offered to do my horses.

Yay!  I love Fernando.  (I’m sure you have heard me say that before… He’s the one who set his own post here so he could have a secure trimming area.)

A PHOTO UPDATE OF ALL OF THE GANG!

Finn was first. He is such a good boy!

Missy Miss was 4th, but I forgot to take pics of Wrigley and BG while they were being trimmed. Fernando and I always start gabbing and then time flies… You can see Gwen in the rear here. She is always the best when it comes to farrier day. She stands like a perfect angel – which she isn’t… but for the farrier, she is.

Fernando working on Dodger who insisted on being trimmed in front of the fan. (Smart old guy…). Norma is on deck.

THE FLUFFY CAT SERIES.

Fernando brought his son, Fernando, with him on this day since they were both going to go see Fernando Sr’s sister (little Fernando’s aunt) afterwards.

Fluffy Kitty beat tracks to Fernando Jr. and monopolized his time with her feline ways…

I’m inside Dodger’s paddock and I see Fluffy behind Fernando Jr.

Fluffy keeps it up – being incredibly cute…

AT one point, Fernando was playing “catch the string” with her…

Finally, she let him be… but she stayed close.

BACK TO THE HORSES!

We went across the street to my neighbor’s place to do Dalton. (You can see me in his eyeball.) Dalton was a very good boy.

This is BG. I forgot to take a pic while we were doing her… but here are her feet after her Sunday trim.  She was so good today!  I think with her body work and the new supplement I give her, she is finally healing.  BG put her head in the halter when it was her time, no refusals.  This is such a relief that she is feeling better!

Wrigley! Wrigley was such a good boy! Usually we do him first. When he saw that we started with Finn, he was upset. As soon as Finn was done, Wrigley came running over and stuck his head in the halter. Wrigley is 11 this year… I think he is finally settling down. OH, and he has a new flymask. He likes these kind with the red trim. When I bring out all the flymasks, he always picks the red ones.

Horse And Man by Dawndi - 4d ago

I think you all know that I’m obsessed with planting trees here.  Not only do I love trees.  I think they are majestic and beautiful… I also hate being hot.  I love shade.

Since our home in Paso is on a hill (amazing 360 views) and a previous cattle ranch (where they cut down all the oaks) and in direct sunlight all the time (don’t get me started…), I set in motion the plan to create shade in every possible location.

Over the past two years, I have planted more than 80 trees.  This delights me because I love to feed them and watch them thrive (kinda like my horses).

This is one of the first trees I planted just over 2 years ago.

RIGHT NOW, I HAVE A LITTLE TREE…

Right now, I have a little tree that is struggling.

I either planted it in the wrong spot, or it was unhealthy… but I decided to move him this Spring, before he budded.  We dug a hole for him and then carefully dug him out of his area, where he had been for over 2 years.  (He was one of the first trees I had planted.  He came as a dormant slip from one of those mail-order tree catalogs.)

This Spring, he budded like a maniac and I was thrilled.  However, his leaves were not as big as his relatives here.  I have several Sycamores, and his leaves are 50% smaller than the other trees – all planted after him.

Anyway, he budded like a maniac and all was fine.

Then we left for Wyoming and didn’t realize that the dogs had eaten through this tree’s drip line.  So, he got no water for 12 days.

THEN HE LOOKED LIKE THIS:

Then, my little tree looked like this – totally dead.  No water, in hot sun, for 12 days.

YES, HE LOOKS dead. All the brown leaves have fallen and he is a sick looking twig. Hubby said that this little tree was done.

I WAS SO UPSET… I DECIDED TO DEFY APPEARANCES.

I was so upset to lose this tree, that I decided to water it like crazy, feed and pray.  The problem was that this tree was far away from any water spigot.  So, getting water to it would not be easy (it is way down a hill…).

My plan was to put a bucket as close to the tree as possible – at the end of our longest hose.  When the watering timer went off, it would fill the bucket.  Then, I could carry the bucket to the tree.

I did this for 2 weeks.

I set up two buckets so that one would always be full

AFTER TWO WEEKS, IT IS ALIVE!

Hubby says that it will still probably die… but I am also feeding it with the amazing worms I get from Black Diamond Vermicompost (she mails out orders all the time so feel free to go to her site and get your own!)

There are little green buds sprouting in several areas of my little tree!  So, I will continue to water him and feed him.  Crossing fingers and praying to Mother Nature!

I WILL KEEP YOU POSTED, BUT FOR NOW, I’M THRILLED!

And just to make the point again, LOOK at how huge these trees are now!  It has only been 2 years for these guys.  It is amazing!  And I’m pretty sure it is the Black Diamond Vermicompost.

FOR EXAMPLE: These little trees in this alley way are so huge now, that you can barely see them! Ther trees in front, too! All of these trees are only 2 years old. Worms and water. I swear by the Black Diamond Vermicompost!

This story comes from Idaho Equine Hospital.

THE STORY

Our #foalfriday this week is definitely a story with a silver lining. The foal belongs to Gale and Elaine Burns and this little colt had a bit of a rough start to life. He lost his mama at about 10 days of age. She had suffered damage to the nerves that control her bladder and damage to her intestine-both as part of the foaling process-and had to be put down due to the extent of her injuries. We worked with the colt at the hospital to train him to drink from a pan, but he did not like the milk replacer and was not eating like we thought he should. Gale had a couple of mares at home that had recently had foals and he felt like one of them might be receptive to taking on another foal. We sent the colt home and gave Gale some medication to give the mare to help make her more receptive to the foal. While he was introducing the orphan foal to his mare Carmel, he moved her foal off to the other side of the barn hoping this would make her more tolerant of the little orphan. He gave Carmel the shot and introduced her to the new foal. Initially she was receptive to the foal, but as the day went on she became suspicious and less accepting. Gale gave her a second round of the medication, this time she took the new foal and never looked back.
Meanwhile, on the other side of the barn, Gale’s other mare started talking to Carmel’s foal, despite having her own foal on her side. So Gale figured he would see what would happen if he gave Carmel’s foal to the other mare. Happily, she took the other foal without a second thought and is totally happy raising two babies.
According to Gale, it turned out to be a pretty good case of “Mix and Match”. We are just so happy that things worked out as well as they did, and that there was a silver lining after the sadness we all felt at losing the mare. @ Idaho Equine Hospital

Today, I clean.  We have AirBnB guests!

HERE WE GO!

Cool idea… putting colored marbles in holes in your fence.

Sweet wild ones.

Made me laugh…

So beautiful.

Puppeeee! By Elke Vogelsang.

My niece got engaged! (They are in a hot air balloon over Napa.)

Probably photoshopped but I bit.

OK, this made me laugh out loud – but Hubby didn’t think it was funny at all.

Wow. I always look at these lion pics and see my cats in them.

Patootey.

The smallest hummingbird…

I don’t know what this is…

Yes. I would like this in my yard, please.

Bats are so misunderstood.

From Idaho Equine Hospital. So cute!

I’ve been following the production of a mustang movie called, CHASING WILD, on FB.

I don’t know anything about the movie… but what attracted me was, of course, the marriage of my two favorite things:  production and horses.  (For those of you who are new to the blog, I was a commercial producer for a very long time.  Loved it!)

Today, the CHASING WILD Facebook post was a “behind the scenes” album of stills.  There were many more that I didn’t choose, only because I had to limit my take here… so go look at this page to see them all.

I will say, I love the photography… and the horses they picked (or were given or they adopted, I don’t know) look very robust and fine.

Here we go!  Click here to see all the ‘behind the scenes’ pics.

Chasing Wild added 119 new photos from March 18, 2018 to the album: Behind The Scenes — with Matt Katsolis and Byron Hogan at Colorado.
March 18, 2018 ·

All the comments on these photos are mine – not from anyone connected with the film.

A lovely tack room.

This looks like a meeting of the ‘above the line’ people. (I have no idea, just surmising.)

Some of the gorgeous horses.

Nice shot.

PRetty… I loved his jacket! Later we will see the guy in the water who took this shot.

This looks like a script ‘read through’.

I put this in because it is such a typical production shot. These key people are all looking at the playback monitors. Probably the director, DP, makeup/wardrobe, lighting/grip and producer…

Very pretty shot… Note the heavy gyro gear on these two cameramen. You’ve probably heard of steadicam. These rigs allow the cameramen to hold the cameras level and follow the action.  The rigs are heavy and cumbersome.

This is a guy from the sound department, handing our comms – headsets to listen to the action. Or he is handing out batteries for the comms.. I love this horse!

And here he is again! Nosing one of the camera.

Gorgeous shot.

Another amazing shot of the wild horses coming off of the truck for the first time.

Gorgeous.

I think the story involved boys without mentors… or boys that need direction or a purpose. Here I had to put this shot in because this camera operator is STANDING ON A LADDER, with one foot on the panel and maneuvering his rig (and very expensive camera) as he dangles over into the round pen.

Another gorgeous shot.

I loved this for the choice of reds on this barn. Note the Chimera white roof that diffuses the light. I wonder why the boom guy has a scarf around his mouth in almost every shot…?

This shot cracked me up. It looks to me to be an early scout. Like when no one really knew what to wear – yet. Or, it is the production people, who rarely leave the motorhome, having to take a scout. Not sure, but the last guy has the walkie so I’m guessing he is the location scout.

Gorgeous. This was shot in Colorado.

I was trying to figure this out… it looks like some sort of camera car rig.

Poor mustang Blaze almost lost his foot.  The pics are fairly graphic…  so if you’d like to see the detail of his injuries, go here.

Blaze was rescued from the Virginia Range as an orphan at 2 weeks old – and bottle fed by his rescuers – the same people that found him – Lucky Star Ranch (a well respected sanctuary that often helps all of the Virginia Range wild horse rescue teams).  Blaze’s owners were devastated and frightened, but managed to quickly put on a handmade tourniquet and transport him to the nearest equine hospital.  There, Blaze was quickly put straight into surgery.

This all happened the afternoon before July 4th.  So, many of you were not here to know the story…   The original story is here.

Click image to go to the original story.

IT WAS MY FAULT that I wrote the story over a holiday … and I’d like to do better for poor Blaze and his devastated family (the hospital bills are enormous).  CAN WE HELP?!  Any Starbucks money or car seat change?  It all adds up!  All donations are 100% tax-deductible!  THANK YOU in advance!



If you receive this post via email, click here to donate!
UPDATE ON BLAZE!

I have some updated pics on Blaze.  He made it through surgery, has a cast and is not eating or drinking very well.  They feel he is in severe pain, – for those of us who have had injuries like this, we understand severe pain and depression after injury/surgery …  Poor guy.  Really.

If he comes through this week, the vets feel his is very likely to heal all the way.

Could you imagine walking out to an injury like this on your horse who you bottle fed since he was 2 weeks old – or any horse?!!

He is such a little, sweet guy…. all kinds of treats to entice him to eat.

This is his first cast. He will need several …

Poor guy is in a lot of pain and is not eating much or drinking much. Of course, neither would I after an intense injury and surgery like this.

The vets asked Blaze’s owners to come down – when they were closed on Sunday – to bring Blaze treats and sit with him so he would eat.

BLAZE’S HOSPITAL SURGERY/AFTER CARE/FUTURE CASTS fees are enormous…

If you have Starbucks money or any car seat change, we would be forever grateful.  Many thanks in advance!

Today, the puppies go in to be spayed.  I know they will be sore afterwards, so I’ve washed all of their bedding and have made their area very soft and comfy.  Poor babies.

The girls have not slowed down AT ALL.  Vivienne (black) and Violet (tri) are never, ever tired.  I think they sleep when they are inside at night – because they are bored.

Mom is a Walker Coon Hound.  Dad, we think, was a lab mix.  Both are like bullets shot from a gun when we open the doors for them to go OUT.  And they stay out all day – or until they get hot.   Neither ever sit still.  Vivienne rules the roost and is also much more dainty and lithe.  Violet loves everyone and loves to jumpjumpjumpjump all the time. Vivienne looks down on that type of behavior…  Actually, Vivienne is discerning on just about everything… whereas Violet is happygolucky.   Vivienne is affectionate at meal time… Violet is always full of hugs and kisses – and will come when called.  Vivienne runs when called.  Violet pushes through every open door (even the partially cracked garage door we leave opened for the cats) and sneaks cat food whenever possible.  Vivienne adheres to the rules, of course, but isn’t above nabbing a cat food dish when the coast is clear.

It is hard to believe that they came from the same litter!  They are perfect wrestlemania partner and we are very in love with them both!

After being in the doggie daycare for 2 weeks while we were in Wyoming, they have forgotten about potty training.  Oy.  I am starting all over…

And, they still wake me up at 2:30am and 4:30am every morning.  We tried crate training but they banged on the crates all night long.  Not sure which is worse…

PUPDATE!

This was the moment I picked them up from day care after we were gone for 2 weeks in Wyoming.

Serious, discerning Vivienne.

Happy go lucky, lovey Violet. Here she is, laying on her new puppy potty pad. sigh.

The ‘can we go OUT?’ faces.

This is the “Let me back in… it’s really HOT” face.

This could go either way… it could be the “C’mon back out and play!!!” face from Vivienne.

Or the, “Mom, I IMPLORE you to please let my sister inside because it is HOT out there!” from Violet.

REMEMBER WHEN… just six and a half months ago…
