Hey, adopted another horse!

I got Top of the Pyramid in October.  I was told he was a total nervous Nelly, weaving, running fence lines, worrying.  His previous pet human also advised me to lunge him before riding.  Well, he got here and was wonderful.  Just as sweet and cooperative and friendly as one could hope.  So, needless to […]

It has been an entire year!

A whole year since I last posted anything!  Yep, we got hacked.  Sandy got the site fixed, but I couldn’t log on.  Now I can!  Yay!  You will be bombasted with obnoxious drivel once again. One cool thing:  I adopted out a horse.  You want the story?  Storm Cat grandson, gelded at 8…  Yes, that […]

Flash gets a B minus

I might have told you I have been taking Flash to pony land for trail rides.  Bull Run Hunt held a big trail ride at pony land, so I put Flash on the trailer to see if he could keep his cool with 30 other horses.  The answer:  mostly. He was a little nervous with […]

Underwater again

Well, I haven’t been doing a whole heck of a lot.  Only Flash left to ride, and most of the time we get rained out.  Yesterday I did manage to get him on a trailer and take him on a trail ride (only brief showers), and his inner mare made only a few short appearances. […]

Wow. All or nothing.

I have not moved a horse in a century, as everyone was looking for a high performance horse. All of a sudden I get a bunch of calls for companion animals.  The guy I spoke to this afternoon didn’t even care if it cribbed!  “Aw, honey, that ain’t nothing.”  Whoa.  I guess I need to […]

Mystic Fever

“Flash” is an eight year old 16.2 hand gelding.  He is cautiously back up for adoption, but will need a special human.  He has trust issues, so will need a very experienced, patient rider.

Shoot me

I adopted Flash AKA Mystic Fever.  The grumpy thing.  He is less grumpy with me than anyone else, and he’s all I have left to ride, so I guess we are stuck with one another. Point of Glory failed out.  While he was a delight to ride in the ring, ALONE, if there was another […]
