What is this... Is this... A blog post? It is! It is a blog post! Holy crap! Who knew I could still do this? It's been way too long and we miss you guys 💖 It's been an absolutely crazy year but I am a married woman and a home owner and living the barn… Continue reading We’re Alive!
Elisa Wallace and a Cross-Rail
I'm still in awe of how amazing this little horse was last weekend. I was sick as a dog (finally just getting out of it) and did not ride my best but that's what clinics are for right? The first day of the clinic has always been flat so I planned on giving him a… Continue reading Elisa Wallace and a Cross-Rail
Sleepy ponies ^.^ These boys are absolutely loving the new barn just as much as I am. I have never seen Brantley lay down in close quarters with another horse like this... ever. I don't think I've even seen him lay down while in a paddock with another horse to be honest. Dylan has really… Continue reading Gettin’ Fancy
New Barn. Who Dis?
I think this is our third barn since January... I think. At this point I'm not really sure but it's a good excuse why the blog has been so quiet especially coming out of the busy season which lasted way longer than I wanted it to that's for sure. Luckily I had most of the… Continue reading New Barn. Who Dis?
Photo Credit: Polar Square Designs / K. Taylor Finding ourselves at the end of February and life just keeps going whether I am ready or not. The horses (yes that is plural) have been moved into a new barn a bit farther away and the wedding countdown is on. Brantley is still on the mend.… Continue reading Almost There…
Isn't it weird. That feeling that you get in your stomach when you get a text that seems so innocent and just a normal "your horse did something dumb" ... But you know it's not? Obviously this could have been much, much worse. But also completely avoidable which is what is so frustrating about it.… Continue reading Nonsense
A Little Freedom… And an OTTB Story
"Freedom is the open window through which pours the sunlight of the human spirit and human dignity."- Herbert Hoover I finally had a moment of freedom on Saturday. Quick brush job and some orange polos, off we went. Almost a month without a saddle on his back, Brantley was steady and ready to explore. Of… Continue reading A Little Freedom… And an OTTB Story
"Winter is a season of recovery and preparation." - Paul Theroux I'd like to think that this is true but as most equestrians right now, seasonal depression is a thing. Put that on top of just regular depression and I battle pressing the call button after dialing a number for a recommended therapist... I'll get… Continue reading Holiday Craze
It's been incredible being able to pull on my trainer pants the last few weeks with Amigo... It's reminded me of where I started with B and that first feeling of, "I trust you." Never take that feeling for granted because there is nothing else like it. Although being a little snippy with the other geldings, I… Continue reading #horselife
So I just wanted to say that I have been catching up on everyone's posts but for some reason, whether you're WordPress or Blogger, my phone isn't letting me comment on anything! But at least if you're on WordPress, I can click the little "like" star button! Brantley is taking to "winter retirement" quite well.… Continue reading No Comments
