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 […]
If your name happens to be Flash. I think his show name should be Forrest Freaking Gump. I gave up last fall because a single pole on the ground was reason to throw one’s head in the air, run at it, and either jump way into the air or trip over it, depending on how […]
Bleh. Anyway, Tamio came out and finished trimming the herd. Except for the ones we just can’t catch. Fortunately, there aren’t many, but they are still annoying and make everyone else look bad. We truly can’t get near them! Even a three-legged horse can run faster than my ancient butt. Bleh again. Good news? After […]
Go figure. Looked fine on my end, but I start poking around and see (draft) in fine print somewhere in a corner. Okay. So here is an update: It looks like I might get the puppy after all. The breeder decided she would rather have the female. So, paws crossed, everybody! Riding was put on hold […]
I HAVE NO IDEA WHY THIS DID NOT POST ON 10 DECEMBER, BUT HERE YOU GO. I just get tired of the darn computer stuff. Besides, it never does what I tell it. So, on the puppy front, I almost had a puppy. Put down a deposit and everything, but puppy mama only had […]
Please ignore nasty rider. Isn’t horse cute?
Yes, been awhile. But I had to share with you guys just how well Flash and Glory are doing. For the right people, they really are ready to go to new homes. Flash and I had another lesson yesterday (thank you Nancy Lowey!!). He has come SO far! We really are getting good w/t/c transitions […]
Through Mariposa, up the Dangerous Mountain roads, And pulled in at eight a.m. With his big truckload of hay behind the barn. With winch and ropes and hooks We stacked the bales up clean To splintery redwood rafters High in the dark, flecks of alfalfa Whirling through shingle-cracks of light, Itch of haydust in the […]
I brought up a few more horses to play with, and Mr. Coffin generously offered to come give them a test drive. The mare hadn’t been ridden in years. She arrived on Montpelier straight from the New Holland sale with a saddle mark, poultice, over grown feet and a big knee. We let her rest […]
Today my wonderful committee and volunteers spent the afternoon tagging equipment to sell this Saturday, and it was a job! We still have a bunch more to do, but it should all be set by Saturday. And Linda P showed up to help! Bravo for Saratoga for getting down here and getting involved! We kinda felt […]
