Dealing with the Muck Pile

Everyone poops, but horses are particularly well known for their pooping. I’ve been stalling my horses at night for about a month, and this has caused a large side effect. My horses are no longer out all the time, pooping where they please, and instead are pooping in stalls that have to be cleaned daily. […]

A Snow Day

The first snowfall of the winter has come!  It’s beautiful to look at, and I love it for photos. For practical purposes though, man, I hate snow. It just adds a layer of annoyance when taking care of the horses. Its annoying to walk through, it’s annoying to clear it away, and it’s annoying when […]

Carport.com Review

Now that I’ve had my shed for two years now, I feel confident in circling back around to review it. I bought my shed way back in fall of 2017 for two reasons – to house some yearlings while I constructed a more permenant structure for them, and then to house farm equipment and hay.  […]

Creativity on Instagram

I may have gone a little crazy on Instagram.  I mainly used to post photos of my horses, usually out in their pasture, but I’m going to be honest here –  I was running out of inspiration. I’d still take the photos, but they all seemed so alike. I was boring myself.  So I decided […]

Renovation Begins

The barn has needed repairs since we moved in, which embarrassingly, was 7 years ago. It took a while to work through the procrastination. But, now that I’ve started, I’m very excited to continue, and all I want to do it keep working on it. It’s really not that hard, and it’s so rewarding to […]

Finally, I Ride Again

It’s been a while since I rode. The last time was at a polo lesson last August. The last time I rode Berry was a few months before that, although I can’t remember exactly when it was. Late Spring, I would guess.  I hadn’t been riding Berry because of the trailering incident. I probably rode […]

Ground Work with Stu

Stu is now a big two year old. He’s spent the last year of his life basically being feral. He got some basic training at his breeder’s farm, and then I worked with him a few times until I got pregnant and he kicked me twice, like a little shit. I decided it was too […]
