A Day at the Farm

Before children, I took for granted being able to get my hair cut. Now, wow, what a luxury. I actually hate getting my hair done, it takes too long and I nearly always don’t like the results, but it is necessary. My hair starts to look pretty ratty and gross if I go longer than […]

Twinning

Once again, time moves so fast, I can’t even believe it. I felt like I had just written that post about Stu, but turns out, it’s been nearly a month. How is that even possible? So what’s been happening in the last month… well, nearly nothing horse related. I think if I stuck to only […]

Life with the Twins

They have arrived. After so many months, starting with constant sickness and misery, and ending with constantly being uncomfortable, they are here. It’s been over a month now, and I finally have the energy and time to write this, early in the morning, while all the kids are still sleeping.  Pregnancy was rough. It was […]

Onward to Fall

Things have been pretty quiet around here. There’s not a whole lot I can do, now that I’m the size of a small whale. Since there’s twins in there, I already look like a full term pregnant woman. And I still have over a month left.  I feel like I will never look like my […]

Broodmare

As our little girl is growing up, we started to feel like we might need another one. The first one was working out really well, and it could be fun to have two. They could play together, for one thing. So with that in mind, we though, we could try, and see what happens. Well, […]

I have high hopes for the new year. I have a lot of goals, personal, financial, equestrian, and family, that I […]

Baby’s First Pony Ride

It seems like just days ago she was born, and now she’s hit another milestone – her first pony ride!!! She’s been born in another way: introduced to the wonder of riding.  Naturally, she has already been around horses, since she lives on a horse farm, but I have never let her on on. To […]

Family Time

It has been a busy few weeks. Grandma came up to stay and watch Bridgette, giving me time to get things done. We did some housework, I’m riding regularly, and we had family time! I ended up so busy, I didn’t get to blog as much as I would have liked. Unfortunately I only get […]

Baby Picture Comparison

She turned one! I can’t believe it’s been a full year since she was born. The time went so fast. We had planned on her first birthday party being last weekend, but we ended up canceling it due to the virus. I actually made the decision to cancel a few weeks ago, and it was […]

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 […]
