Tulip Reports that Willie was born halter broke.

Categories: Uncategorized | Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

The weather this week has made us all thankful to be living in the great Columbia Basin. Yes, it has been cold, but we didn’t have snow.

On Monday we were on our way back from Idaho, we stayed and waved as the girls got on the bus, we did not get up early enough to see James off to work. Toni snapped a pic of Anna’s Youth Foal, “Gunnie,” and said Anna’s chestnut, Kade pointed out that John Dutton rides a chestnut. Gunnie is pretty nice, she is by Yo, a daughter of Jackpot and out of Pistol, Gunner’s dam, and her sire is Double. Toni waited for the shipper all afternoon to ship Lilo, and never heard from him. Finally, at 4:13 she called, since she had to go to a city planning meeting that night, which she had told him, and he was at 9 Mile, north of Spokane, so probably 3 hrs away. Kade went down at 5 to wait for him, we got home around 5:30, so I called Kade and told him I would switch him. At 6 still no sign or work, so I contacted him, he said an hr and a half. Toni got home and I told her he should be down around 7:30, but would let me know when he got close. At 8 he contacted me at said 30 min out, I joking said for sure this time, which he took to be rude and did not stop. So poor Lilo was locked in all afternoon waiting for someone that never showed. But, sometimes you just roll with it.  We put the purchaser in touch with some good shippers to see what could be done to get this filly home. 

Tuesday after school Anna went down and rode her young horses. Toni worked on the foals. They weaned the May/June foals, so only Summer is left on. The normal horse calendar pics are done with voting, now we are doing a stallion calendar and voting started on it. Toni said all of the foals she is working on are doing great. Deano texted Toni on Tuesday that he would arrive Wednesday night with the 2 steers for South Dakota, could he unload the longhorn bull he is hauling so he could sleep in Connell for the night. And that was all fine.

Wednesday morning Deano texted Toni he was ahead of schedule and would be there at noon. Toni was worried she might be in court when he showed up, but he was earlier then he thought, so Toni and dad unloaded the steers and bull, loaded Blue Devil up, the bull back up, and Deano took off. The bull was really tame so would get way too close to people with those long horns. Deano said that the bull was $25,000.00. He didn’t look like much of a bull for $25,000.00. The steers looked really good. And they were pretty tame. Deano is a great hauler so he takes good care and reduces stress on the haul. Toni went to court. Anna came home from school and messed with the three foals we have in so Toni could go change clothes and grab the trailer to haul the steers to my house. With it getting dark so early even working together they didn’t get the chores done in the light. But the steers got moved before it got too dark, so that was good.  Wednesday night Kade started feeling sick. I guess a bug is going around the school.

Thursday Toni and Mom took Molly in to see Sheena for a checkup and blood test. She was doing pretty good so she just has to finish her one antibiotic. No more fluid in her lungs. She was herself, so she tried to escape the trailer and was a touch ornery.  Mom and Toni stopped by the cowpath bakery and got Anna a pumpkin dessert for her birthday. Boys did chores, Toni worked on foals. Anna and men did cattle chores. The three foals, Honey Bug, Judge, and Gunnie are all really great. Toni said she put the three easiest ones in to have an easy birthday week.  Kade stayed home from school.

Friday was Anna’s birthday, Happy Birthday Anna, she is 17. Where does the time go?? Marlo came and helped do chores, I brought home groceries. Toni had Marlo lead some of the foals around.  The men took grass bales down to the horses.  Kade was still home sick.

Saturday was Toni’s birthday, Happy Birthday Toni.

Toni went down to the house to show some horses. Ben went to Moses Lake to deliver meat. Mom, dad and Skip went to town. Kaine, Anna and I put fence posts in for the fence around the corn field. Dan, Seth and Rusanne showed up to look at bulls, about the time Ben got home. They picked three out. Ben then put the gates up and Anna, Kaine and I went and got the cows in. We sorted out the heavy heifers and turned the rest out in the corn field. Then we sorted the Angus steers and the heifers out of the clubby steers and hauled them and Fred down to the alfalfa field. Molly was colicy again, so Toni spent most of her birthday down with mom leading Molly around. She tried to lead her off of Shadie, but since Molly does not believe she is a horse, she did not want to be around Shadie. Mom said Shadie was the problem, but really….. Molly finally started feeling better around 10 that night, I did take a turn in the evening so Toni could have Chinese food for her birthday and watch a movie.  Kade was still sick and Kaine started to feel sick.

Sunday Marlo and McCall came over and we had the big birthday party for Toni and Anna. Ben cooked meat balls, bacon wrapped shrimp and funeral potatoes. Mom made 3 pies. Toni brought a salad and appetizers. We had a great time. Then we went down to mom and dads, took pictures of the Judge, pictures of Anna and Gunnie, turned out the Judge and Honey Bug, and put in the next 2 to halter break. These are the last 2 big ones, King 3 and Willie. Willie is exceptionally big, but he is a Leroy. Haltering these two took less than 3 minutes. So maybe two easy weeks in a row? Kade and Kaine were still not feeling great.  When we were out messing around, we heard a kitten meowing and found a little kitten out by the road. So Anna had a new kitten for a bit. We later found out it is the neighbors, so Anna gave it back. I would also like to thank Mary with Stablefeed.com who not only took our call Sunday but took the time to discuss feeding options for Molly. Mary has been a really great asset to our team. When you have feeding concerns and are dealing with issues, Mary is knowledgeable and helpful. We are getting Molly onto some supplements that will hopefully help combat all of the meds that have been put into her and get her feeling good.

                The weather this week has made us all thankful to be living in the great Columbia Basin. Yes, it has been cold, but we didn’t have snow. So many of our friends and neighbors are dealing with early winter weather, trying to get cattle moved, keep the cattle fed and healthy.  Raising livestock is not for the weak.

There is nothing that makes a person happier than buying livestock. And if we have to be addicted to something, livestock addiction is better than a drug addiction.

Monday dragged on, since at 4 it seemed like 5 and I should be off of work. We were all still tired for the show, so that didn’t help the situation. WSU had a shift change on Monday, so we had new vets call with the Molly update, however, she still got the OK to come home on Tuesday. I had them contact Sheena with continued care, like blood work orders, etc. We are excited to get her home. Kaine had to stay after school to turn in his football gear, but besides that he is done with sports for a bit. It is nice with darkness coming so early to have them home for chores. Toni got Naughty, Dual and Duke back in to work with. Toni also did chores so the 3 kids that were home could wash their steers and heifers. 

Tuesday Toni and mom headed to WSU to bring Molly home as soon as the kids were on the bus. I took Wild to Sheena to get her eye port taken out, then Wild was turned out with the other weanlings.  Mom did not want Wild in with Molly. Wild isn’t wild, but she is big and can be pretty active. The old white trailer was brought down for Molly to spend nights in. Mom and Toni took a blanket for Molly so she did not get too cold on the way home. Molly was pretty lethargic acting up at WSU. They said she had not been super active, but was pretty resistant to getting her bandage changed. When Toni took her off the trailer at home, Molly was back to herself. Prancing, bucking in place, acting like she was pretty happy to be home. And of course mom was really happy she was home. We all were, but Mom especially.  Because the trailer was at the house from bringing Molly home, we practiced loading Naughty, Duke, Dual, and Lilo. Since the weather had gotten cold we also put Double’s blanket on him. Kaine washed his heifers after school and Kade and Jaxsen did chores.

Wednesday Coco got sick, so Toni watched baby Shea from 6:30 am to about 10:30. Kendel watched Shea while Toni had court. Anna went and got her when she got home from school from Kendel. They all had lots of fun watching her, but we are still sad Coco was sick. Coco ended up going to the doctor to try to get some meds and get better. Toni and the kids did chores.  Naughty, Dual, and Duke were all progressing really well.  Toni was getting ready to go to a convention, so she had Kade and Kaine help her with the colts as they would be working on them on Thursday. We forget how much stranger danger the foals have until you go to introduce someone new to them. But the boys did really well with the colts. Dual is very chill. Duke, who is still really young, just needed more time to get used to the boys. We call them boys, but they are both about 6 feet tall and probably look pretty big to the weanling colts.

Thursday Coco was still sick, Toni had court so Kendel watched Shea and took Coco some chicken noodle soup. Toni and Leslie left for WCA conference at noon in Wenatchee. The kids did most of chores. I did some when I got home, not a lot, what they left for me.  The boys worked on the colts themselves. They said they did fine. Someone also has to help mom lead Molly who is feeling her oats now that she is home. We still have to give her meds, change her bandages, but she is much improved. We just hope we can keep her moving in the right direction with her healing.

Happy Veterans Day. On Friday Ben the kids and I left for SE Idaho to see the Geddes family. We stay with Ben’s sister Candice, her husband James and the 4 girls. Kaydance is the only one of the 4 that does not do dance, she is in to animals, so we are trying to convince Candice and James to let her stay with us for a while in the summer. Toni got home late in the day and the Meachams did chores while we were gone. McCall came and house sat. 

We had a great time in Idaho, for the few days we were there, and visited as many people as we could. We took Nugget the mini down with us for Andee.

Toni and the boys did a lot while we were gone. On Saturday, Kade went shooting. Jaxsen and Toni went and loaded out Duke, Dual, and Naughty. It was a cold but sunny day. After the three colts left, Toni and Kade got Lilo, Groot, and Rich in. Groot and Rich were the two options for Jeshua for the AQHA youth program. The Meacham men put out straw for all of the horses. They did chores.

 Jeshua ended up selecting Groot on Sunday. Groot is quite a bit bigger than Rich at this point and he is bay. Jeshua likes bays. Really who doesn’t? Toni and Kade got the next halterbreaking victims in, they ended up being Judge, Gunnie, and one last sold filly that is staying awhile. Then Toni and Kade pulled Shadie and Cammie in, weaned those 2 foals, put a blanket on Shadie. Then went and caught Blue and Lendy, weaned those 2 foals. So the only foal left to wean is Summer. She is just too tiny to wean.  They were supposed to haul a load of mares out after that, but ended up riding out to check the heifers instead. Kade is really wanting to ride his horse Minnie quite a bit before he has to quit because she is ready to foal.  We bought her bred, so probably won’t breed her back unless Kade has moved to something else to ride, but he likes her a lot. Then they cleaned out the red trailer before winter.  After that it was time for chores.

                Seven foals left to sell. We are still debating keeping as many as we have selected to keep. So we may have some others for sale at some point. Toni tried to buy a few at the Millionaire’s sale but wouldn’t bid high enough. We had the Shining Spark 2022 colt for all of 5 minutes before we got outbid. I think he sold for $51,000.00. Yeah, we were an early bid! A person might wonder why we would bid on another horse.  There is nothing that makes a person happier than buying livestock. And if we have to be addicted to something, livestock addiction is better than a drug addiction.
