Learning together

I took Coco to another show this past weekend and we had a much different experience from the previous weekend. In a good way, too! Hidden Lakes is a great little show venue near Flower Mound, Texas. They often have show series throughout the year that are great to attend if you are starting out as […]

I can’t believe July is nearly here! This summer is brutal so far with high temps and little or no rain. I REALLY hope we get some rain sooner rather than later. Enjoy some funny farm pet pics!   I could start a series consisting entirely of Betty’s funny sleeping positions. This is the most […]

Little baby jumps!

My primary goals for Simon in 2018 are these: Walk, trot and canter off leg Correct leads when asked Open and close gates/sidepass to and from solid objects like fences Steering Go in contact Get out and about as much as possible #1 is coming along nicely. #2 is a bit of a challenge to […]

MARES???!!!!

Y’all. Mares. Are. Hard. We had  lots of mares when I was growing up, but only one that was ever “mine” and she wasn’t “mine” for very long because she turned out to not be very good at her job (reining) so she went to the broodmare band (makes sense, right? Notsomuch). I’ve never had […]

Good Friday morning y’all! I’m a bit behind on my blog posts, but hope to get to it this weekend! Some fun things have happened and some fun things are in the works with the horses. We have had a little drama, but nothing a big fat vet bill didn’t fix (insert eye roll here). […]

Justify’s Uncle

Happy Friday! The weather here in North Texas is AMAZEBALLS right now! Temps in the 70s and green grass (and bluebonnets) everywhere. It is truly delightful!   I feel like I never post pics of the chickens, so here is a chicken (one of our Blue Andalusians) with a beerhound photobombing.     Cheesy goat smile. […]

More kids?!

So this happened last Sunday, I mentioned to Boot City on Saturday that Penelope looked super fat and that it was weird she had a full udder. Well, there was a good reason for that big belly and the full udder. Baby #1   Baby #2   We definitely did NOT plan to have any […]

FINALLY a week without any vet visits (at least so far)! I’ve ridden Sterling twice this week and he even tried to buck once! Clearly he is feeling better. Still trying to figure out what is causing Coco’s woes, but her rides have been better this week also. There are only two more fox hunts […]
