More spring

Tamio was here for another round of feet.  Allergies clobbered him, so he didn’t do a whole lot.  We rescheduled.  Also, he usually brings a couple apprentices so we can walk through the whole herd in a day.  With this in mind, I had five people show up for catching and holding.  His help bailed […]

Springtime

Basically brings weeds and allergies.  But that’s okay.  Today we finished worming and vaccinating the herd (thank you Roman and NancyH).  The usual subjects opted out.  But that’s okay too.  They are way bigger than I am.  In fact, they are way bigger than all three of us, so if I don’t think I can […]

Henrik Rules arrives at Montpelier

This is Henry.  Not the best pic, I just took it over the fence while he was checking out his new field.  He is straight off the track, so I won’t be hopping on anytime soon, but I thought you might like a look at him.  We will get better pictures soon.

And once again Anthony and Sally […]

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. […]
