Farm Friday 09.14.2018

It’s Friday! Yay! Hopefully at this time next week I will be watching some amazing show jumping at the World Equestrian Games. Cross your fingers and send prayers that Hurricane Florence decides to skip the Tryon area of North Carolina!   A few weeks ago I brought a friend’s OTTB to my house on his […]

Farm (puppy) Friday 08.17.2018

This Farm Friday is brought to you by puppies! Nellie went to her new home yesterday and the puppies began their trip to their new homes in Maine! We loved having them with us for the 6 weeks and 5 days we had them! But I’d be lying if I said I was going to […]

Coco’s PEMF experience (so far)

Any horse person will tell you that most horse people are game to try many different kinds of therapeutic treatments for their horses. I’ve posted here before about chiropractic treatment. I’ve also explored acupuncture. Most recently I had Coco treated with PEMF, which is short for Pulsed Electromagnetic Field therapy. I’m not going to go […]

Farm Friday 08.10.2018

Good Friday morning y’all! I cannot believe we are into the double digits dates of August! Soon school will be starting around here and traffic will be bad and the weather will start cooling off and all that comes with the change of seasons. I’m trying to let myself enjoy the cooler temps we are […]

Family Reunion!

Nine times out of ten when I tell someone I’m going to my family reunion (which happens every four years) they want to commiserate about how they have to go to their family reunion at some park in some po-dunk Texas town every summer. Everyone argues, no one has fun, and most people go out […]

Pupdate!

The puppies are now just over four weeks old and they are on the MOVE! They are definitely bigger than the muppies were at the same age, but the verdict is still out on what breed mix they are. Any guesses? The boys are all named for German show jumping riders and the girls are […]

Neighborly Shenanigans

Simon came in from turnout Sunday morning with a surprise for me……. It is pretty easy to tell from looking at the injury that it was as wire scrape. The side of the heel has the worst damage.     I got it cleaned up, texted pics to my vet to get some guidance on […]

Farm Friday 07.20.2018

Yesterday I posted a photo of a cut/puncture wound in Coco’s nose on my social media accounts and subsequently was asked by a few folks how I found said wound. So, here you go. It was not a tremendous amount of blood considering it was a “facial” wound, which usually bleed a LOT. She did […]

Art!

2018 has turned out to be the year of art for me. I have acquired some of the most beautiful and heartfelt pieces of art I could ever imagine. I’m blessed to have many gifted friends and family member artists so I’m going to take a moment to brag on these people as well as […]

Big Girl Pants

Y’all. I think Coco has found her Big Girl Pants! A little help from some hormones and better riding doesn’t hurt, but we had an AMAZINGĀ  weekend recently! I took Sterling and Coco to my trainer’s place outside Houston a couple weeks ago. This was Sterling’s first leg of his trip to his lessee and […]
