Weekly Brief Feb 28, 2020

Let’s get one thing out of the way – I like Weekly Brief better than Weekly Round-Up. I thought Round-Up sounded good at first, but now it just reminds me of the weed killer. It’ll be a “Brief” from here on out. Hopefully it won’t continually make me think of underpants. We’ll cross that bridge […]

Bridling Stubert

bridled horse head

Stubert is now being bridled, and learning about the bit. Much to Berry’s dismay (I imagine), I just borrowed her bridle, because frankly, it was the easiest thing to do. And if there’s one thing I like, it’s things being easy. As he’s only 2 and a half, with a birthday in June, so I’m […]

A Barn of a Different Color

Blue is the color of so many beautiful things. The great expanse of sky, the ocean, delicious Chesapeke Bay crabs. It’s also the color of my house and barn, for unknown reasons. It’s as though someone went to the hardware store, asked for the most sickly color of blue they carried, and then vomited it […]

Weekly Round-Up February 21, 2020

Almost Walking The little baby is so close to walking on her own! She now blitzes around with the help of a walker. She’s so fast, it’s hard to get a non-blurry photo of her.  She can’t stand on her own, so she’ll crawl over to the walker, and get up on her knees to […]

wehorse: Online Equestrian Video Subscription Review

I’m a big fan of internet learning. In this day and age, it is possible to learn about nearly anything on the internet, and video seems to be the number one format. From YouTube to LinkedIn Learning, knowledge has never been so accessable. Even top colleges now have online courses, and sometimes even complete programs […]

Weekly Round-Up Feb 6, 2020

Sometimes I have a busy week, and I get so much accomplished. I look back at what I’ve done with pride. Other weeks, I feel really busy, and then when I look back on what I’ve done, I can’t really figure it out. I was definitely doing something… but what was it? Who knows. Maybe […]

Stubert in Baby Horse Training

Stubert is getting worked with just every other day now. Nothing excessive, just groundwork and manners. Things I would/should have been doing before if I wasn’t pregnant, and then converted into baby life. But now I have the time, so it’s a priority to turn him into the best possible young horse. To clarify a […]

Appreciating Winter

I feel like I’ve been complaining about winter too much recently. It’s cold, miserable, muddy, etc. This may come as a shock, but I actually don’t hate winter. Really, I just like complaining. There are lots of nice things about winter that I can appreciate, especially since the pipes in my barn aren’t frozen. Things […]

The Baby Loves Horses

I continue to try to combine the baby and the horses. One day I’m going to get this to work. I bundled up Bridgette, and took her outside once again. This time she understands more of what’s going on, and I’m pretty sure she remembers the horses. She was pretty happy to see them. She […]
