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 […]
ADOPTED – Taxi is a super sweet 9 year old mare. At 15.2 hands, I think she would make a fabulous therapy horse. She loves attention. Her favorite gait is the halt. She has just started under saddle work, and I have taken her out on a trail ride. Very quiet. Very pretty.
“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.

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 […]
Gets confusing. I get their names mixed up. At any rate, they both went out on a trail ride today that proved to be more than we anticipated. With all the recent storms, trees are down all over the trails. Some we had to get off to negotiate (well, J3 got off. I sat there. […]
