White-Eyed

Well we definitely started out last week right with Twist having a cute buckskin colt last Monday. And Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday we finished our buffer fence out in the desert to keep stallions and mares separated. So now there is a lake AND a fence between Colonel and Gunner. Also on Tuesday, Tessa had a charming dun colt. Thursday Toni and I went to the front side of the lake to make sure that fence was up and hot. It was not hot so we went through the cow pasture and found were a jump wire was knocked off. Once we got it back up the fence was scary HOT. But that one fencer energizes miles of fence, so it needs to be hot. With this 1350 feet of fence done, we are taking a small break on the big fencing projects. We have two or three smaller projects that we hope to get done this week.


Friday I got up to load dad and send him up to see Dr. Jennifer King. He took Cleo and Hottie up to get ultra-sounded and pick Pistol up from getting AIed to Playdox. Cleo was confirmed bred to Reed, we are very excited about that combination. However, Hottie was open, so we left her up there to get AIed back to KR Gunpowder. Toni was in Ellensburg at court. So I also got to meet Craig and Christina who came up from Utah and bought Vann, Daze, and Dancin Dan.


Saturday we needed to get one of our recept cows in from Leroy’s pen to get ready to receive an embryo. Ben, Anna and I went and got her and the heifers in. Toni and Kade went down and finished up Colonel’s pen and let Gunner and his mares out into the desert. Then our farrier Chad Whetzel came and we spend the rest of the day trimming horses (and a mini mule named Bunny). We started with Chad at 10:30 and ended at 8:00 pm. I think he is ready to quit on us.


The kids worded on their show string, they are getting their Spokane steers ready, their Angus heifers ready for the Angus field day, and then steers ready for Wheatland after that. May is going to be a busy show month. I also got to take a little spin on my mare, Cad, while I waited for Chad to make it to my house, Toni took him to her house to do Colonel and I went to catch Cad and move some bulls around while I waited for him. Kicker spent a few hours mowing weeds and Russian olive trees on Saturday. Also, now that it is irrigation season, Ben and Kicker also spent part of the weekend starting water. While we were grabbing horses to trim, we also got serious about deworming and giving the West Nile shot as the weather is actually warming up. Any horse that we caught to trim or that would stand still, we got done.


Sunday we got to move some cows around bright and early. Then, we saw that Mud and Lura had both foaled. Two really nice roan foals by Gunner. Then Toni and I spent pretty much the rest of the day moving horses around and trying to get as many horses as possible out on grass. We moved Colonel down to the lake, put Tessa, Mud and Lura out with Gunner. And took Sagebug, Cammie and Shadie over to a neighbors to eat down his pasture. Again deworming and giving WN as we went. Ben worked on getting the camper ready for the Spokane Jr Livestock show, and he made some food for us to take. As well as help the kids with their livestock and change a flat tire for us. Kicker continued with his mowing project. By the end of the weekend we had over 50 head of horses dewormed and given their WN shot. There was a brief argument about where the half-way mark is and how many horses we actually have, but no one wants to get bogged down on numbers. Toni thinks we need fewer horses and I would be happy with a minimum of one of each color and as many as we could run!

Once the weekend was done, we were all “White-Eyed” – Exhausted.

KT Dancin N The Dust

KT Dancin N The Dust is a big, swanky colt out of Kt Pocketfullofposey, “Pocket,” and by Doll Docsan, “Leroy.” Pocket is a really enjoyable mare by Zinks Major Kid and out of PDQ Rikki Tikki Lee, “Sissy.” “Pocket” is Anna’s new ranch horse, she is a talented mare with a impressive pedigree. She is a great granddaughter of AQHA Pt earners: Docs Rickasay, John Zink, and Sheza Major Star. Pocket is also a great granddaughter of Spear Lee Bar, AQHA Race SI-105/AAAT/ROM, 55-24-10-9, $22,853. Pocket’s pedigree also includes other greats like Docs Dee Bar, Lucky Lynx, Birthday Bar and Catechu and Pana Dude. We love the agility and cowyness of these foals, they are great riding, ranch and arena horses. She is a really nice mare that Diann Schuler took to the Othello fair and she was shown halter. Anna is planning on using her for ranch work and showing her at the fair. Leroy is a stallion with a performance packed pedigree along with a very good disposition. He was a very smooth ride with tremendous talent, beautiful movement and huge stop. He was quiet and trainable which he passes along to his foals; he consistently produces fantastic foals with looks, color, conformation and brains. Leroy was unshown due to a wire cut injury that took a long time to heal; it happened just before hitting the showpen as a 3 year old and as a result he was turned out to the studpen. Leroy has produced 1 foal that has NRHA earnings. He also has a 3 year old competing in Western Dressage, was 3rd in Canada in July 2016 and has racked up more 1st place finishes since then. He is sired by Dolls Union Jac- ROM, NRHA earnings, and sired foals that have earnings in excess of $310,000.00 in NRHA, as well as earnings in NRCHA, Buckskin Assoc., and the AQHA world show. Leroy’s dam is Docsan Jeany who has produced foals with earnings in excess of $3700.00 and AQHA point earners. Leroy is also double registered with NFQHA at 92%. This colt was born 3/26/18. $2,500

By Hook or Crook

Toni is back to cracking the whip and getting fencing done. We are going to get it done by hook or crook. By Hook or Crook means: To do any way possible. And that is my finger, not Tonis’.

Monday Toni and I broke apart poles, we bought a pile of 12 foot poles from an orchard and they are attached together with metal in an S curve. So Toni saws them apart while I get the rebar the rest of the way out. However, we only did 20 of them, enough for along Hendricks Rd. So we only have about 110 left to do. It is not fun. Then Tuesday we put up 4 of the poles along our Hendricks Rd fencing project. I am taking a picture every day, normally with Toni it in, so I can remember what we do each day. I didn’t tell Toni I was taking pictures with her in them until Thursday when I wanted her to redo something stupid that she had done so I could get a picture. She was not happy to find out I have been taking pictures on the sly. Haha.

Also on Tuesday, Lendy foaled and had Mario. Wednesday Toni and I started a new fencing project, we are building a fence along one of the lakes in the desert, in case the horses, which are on the front side of the lake, comes across to the back, with the new fence horses will not mix, hypothetically. Toni and I continued with putting in posts for that 1350 feet of fence for Thursday and Friday. We had hoped to get that fence in over the weekend. It did not happen. Also on Friday, Big Mama foaled and had a FANCY grulla filly. There was talk of keeping her, however, one of our good friends and customers has expressed interest in her, so we will see.

Saturday we got fence building reinforcement. Kicker came out with the automatic post pounder and we got 90% of the posts in. Dad even brought out some supplies and stayed and helped for a little while. We also checked the cows out on the desert Saturday morning, all are doing well. And Ben stayed at the house with the kids while we were building fence to help them with their steers and heifers. The kids had 17 head of show critters tied up on Saturday.


Sunday Toni and Kicker celebrated their anniversary and went out for brunch. Ben the kids and I went to Moses to get a gate, more barbless twisted wire for the fence, some precon to take to Spokane with us for the steers, and some other stuff, from Basin Feed. When Toni and Kicker got back they went and finished putting posts in and got some of the wire up. Ben and I got Lendy in and moved her in with Double. And got the Hereford cows in that had calved and moved them down with 102W (pancake) and Eric (our 10Y son). Gunner is also down there and was VERY disappointed there were not any mares in the trailer.


Yesterday I went into town after work and got my hair done. But, Toni, Coco and the kids got more wire up and one of the sections is now completely done. Also, Twist foaled yesterday and had a showy buckskin colt. The weather has been kind of junky, but we always need rain so we are remaining positive.


And I have had a great day so far today. A coworker got back from Hawaii and brought us back wood bookmarks that are REALLY cool. Then Tessa foaled and had a dun colt (dun with black points is one of my favorite colors). Anna had a field trip today, and I could not go, and one of my favorite cousins Whitney went with her. I know Whitney had a lot of fun, and one of our friends’ kid called her and told her she did not have to come because Whitney was coming. LOL. Whitney is 10 years younger than I am, so it is like having an older sibling get to come with you. The kids love Whitney, so Anna probably had more fun with Whitney than if I had gone. Thanks Whitney. Since my day has been so good, I asked Toni if I should get a lotto ticket and she said yes. Big money here we come!

Also, the three older bottle calves tried to escaped today.
