We are all deeply saddened by the sudden loss of our friend Frances Youngblood on May 22, 2014. Frances was kind, generous and smart. She carried a special place in her heart for animals in need and it was her passion to help them. Frances found Luke Hill at TRF Montpelier. Luke couldn’t walk without […]
I am up here in the office tidying up while I wait for the vet (more tooth floating). The horses are being remarkably quiet. I guess that’s what happens when you bring an entire field in, and no one gets separated or left behind. Anyway, shedding. My guys are all shedding and we haven’t even […]
Yes, we have been busy. Monday BREC came out to do teeth. Tuesday I got to hop on a couple and test the left right stop go controls. Wednesday I had to make two trips to go pick up three foster horses that were being sent home as their foster parent had sold the farm. […]
Typical Virginia, it has been HOT here all last week. Fortunately not too humid, thanks to Arthur. Gotta love hurricanes, especially when they stay off the coast and just dump a bit of rain. So I haven’t been doing too, too much. I get on, practice something easy, like gate maneuvers, hose the poor beast […]
Our wonderful chiropractor was back on the east coast, and agreed to swing by and adjust Angus. Angus was like riding a surf board. Nothing between the ears and the tail bent at all. Much like the show hunters I have ridden (sorry, show hunter people, but if you ever ever ever get a chance […]
Hope I spelled that correctly. It has been brought to my attention that for the last few years, this young lady has been requesting donations be made to TRF rather than receive birthday presents! Isn’t that something? Thank you, Delaney. My horses thank you, too.
A huge shout out to SpectraVET for donating the most gorgeous cold laser to help me better treat my horses! These gadgets are expensive! I looked into them a few years ago because I thought I had a few horses who would benefit (and had used them in other stables before to great result. Heck, […]
I have lost my cell phone. Not 36 hours back from vacation and I have lost my entire life. Everything that has or will happen regarding the farm and the horses was on that freaking cell phone, and I can’t find it anywhere. Not to mention every contact number on the planet. Doesn’t it just […]
Yeah, it actually happened: I am on vacation. Dave and I went to the Outer Banks, NC, with of course, Jake and Enzo. Which means no sleeping late, but that’s okay as I don’t do anything all day. I’m getting better at it. The first 24 hours were awful. I couldn’t get used to doing […]
Okay, so the snow is gone. In between downpours I am actually getting in a ride or two. T the semi-cranky Devil Horse (don’t let the pretty face fool you) is actually showing some decent walk trot work and good transitions and leg yields. It has only taken us two years to get there. He […]
