Building Horse Stalls

I have been hard at work in the barn. My first focus is putting in stalls so I can actually bring in the horses out of the weather. Technically I could before, as I just used the whole open space for Stu, but Pony didn’t really have a stall, he lived in the hallway of […]

Happy Thanksgiving!

Time slips away so fast… It’s been so busy, I hadn’t even noticed how long it’s been since I posted! So I decided to share pictures from my Thanksgiving.  Thanksgiving is for family time, so we packed up the baby and the dogs and headed to my parent’s new house on the Cheseapeke Bay. They […]

Horse Farm Warnings

Apparently I’ve always been a klutz. My mom said when she took me to the doctor as a baby she had to convince them those bruises really are because I’m really clumsy. He walked with her to the car as I played on a foot tall concrete wall. Right in front of him I tripped […]

How to Take Better Selfies

I will start by saying I’m not a fan of the traditional selfie style photo. The one where you just stretch your arm out with the front facing camera open, and snap the photo. Major dislike. Especially dislike when I see the same person posting basically the exact same selfie photo over, and over, and […]
