Ride Like a Man

On any typical, normal day, you head to your barn. You greet your girlfriends, you chat with the female working student, and you all make plans to have a wine evening. Your favorite topic of discussion is obviously horses, but you also talk about husbands, boyfriends, dates. It’s easy to have these discussions because every […]

The Maiden Voyage

horse in trailer

I had the trailer, I had some time, so it was time to use the trailer. I didn’t have any purpose to go anywhere, but I needed to test it out!  The first part of my new trailering experience was loading up the dressing room. To someone who already has a dressing room, this may […]

Can You Trust Your Agent?

I saw this yesterday, and it’s both unbelievable and absolutely believable. To summarize – horse agent/trainer is being sued by former horse owner because she sold the horse for $900,000, and told the owner she only sold it for $300,000, pocketing $600,000. It’s unbelievable that someone could think they would get away with pocketing that […]

Have Trailer, Will Travel

I have a new trailer!!! My excitement levels are almost maxed out!  I have not been able to use it yet due to lack of time, but I cannot wait to use it. It’s almost shocking to me how much not having a trailer has affected my horse activities. Granted, I don’t board, so it’s […]

More Stubert

His name is now Stubert, as you might have guessed. I mean, it was Stu, but then one day Dave called him Stubert out of nowhere, and I think I laughed for like 10 minutes. So Stubert it is. But only on formal occasions, he will still go by Stu in casual settings. The breeder […]

Frontier Women

I have the usual talk with my coworkers about what we all did over the weekend. Most people say things like going to a winery or seeing a baseball game or going out to eat. My response is that I cut down trees.  I do enjoy the shock on people’s faces when I tell them […]

This will definitely come up in the future. He’s such a cutie!! He looks like he’s […]

Sailing to St. Michael’s, MD

On the first leg of our journey, we traveled from Annapolis, MD to St. Michaels, MD. It took 6 hours, a combination of sailing and motoring. Sail-motoring. I would venture to say it’s not really easy to get to St. Michaels by car either. On previous sailing trips we have seen houses with seaplanes.  We […]

Sailing

We were supposed to travel down to Key West last week, but hurricane Irma decided to come through and leave a trail of destruction. I’m not so out of touch that I think losing out on a vacation is the most horrible thing that could have happened. Obviously, the people whose homes and businesses and lost […]

Baby Steps

I took advantage of the long weekend to make the trip to visit my baby Stu. I can’t believe how much he’s grown since I last saw him! I think that mainly his joints have thickened. They look a big stocky now.  The trainer has worked with him a few times, but nothing extensive. I […]
