Evaluating Stu’s Face with TTouch

I find TTouch fascinating. I don’t know if how accurate it is, but it does seem to have some truth behind it. It’s more accurate than palm reading, but it seems to fall into that realm.  TTouch was created by Linda Tellington-Jones. It’s both an encyclopdia of horse characteristics and how they relate to personality, […]

The Frustrations of Horses

The posts I had planned for today is delayed. I usually write my posts in advance, and then read/edit them again in the morning they are posted to try to catch any typos. I frequently make typos, and looking at a post with fresh eyes helps to catch them (although I sometimes still miss them […]

Lots of Lines

Two things have been accomplished in the last few days. I’m so excited to be making some progress! I actually don’t know which I’m more excited about. They both give me satisfaction, but which gives me more? I’ll have to think about this. I think Stu was getting frustrated too – he actually gave me […]

King Henry VIII and His Horses

We’re doing something a little bit different here today. I bet no one was expecting this topic to come up. I wouldn’t have expected it either until I happened upon a video that peaked my interest.

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 […]
