Hello Barnmice. Wow...a long time no participation. Well today is June 24th 2021, and it's been some time since my last "confession" lol!
I still have Imp the horse in my profile that was new when that picture was taken. We now live a few miles away from where we did then, and have lived here for 6 years almost. We live on a small farm, private, with five horses, two cats, and two new small doggies. The two older doggies featured in the many pix on here, sadly died within a few months of each other - they were both old. My sadness and lack of small furr companionship, other than my roommate's two kitties; sent me looking for another small dog. I found one in ISLE, aka. ISSY a tiny longish hair chihuahua. A year later we adopted Toby a min-pin who's family were divorcing and he had to find a new home. So now I have two canines again. I live with Mary, the farm owner, and we have grown to be like sisters, sharing all and keeping the various critters happy.
Mary owns three of the horses - an older Trakehner mare,"Arella", who she bought when she first moved down to FL from Illinois, at Valhalla Farm. She was a third level horse then. Arella is now retired to being a mommy or light hacking horse, and she foaled a gorgeous boy two years ago; "Arcadian", by Aqua Farm's "Kougar Von C", by Gribaldi. "Pepel" as we call him at home is a strapping 16hh boy, still growing and playing around on the farm, waiting for another year before he starts work. She also owns a new horse she bought to replace her beautiful black TB. mare; "Little Black Dress" whom she sold recently to a wonderful home that does Dressage also. We recently went to Aiken N.C., horse shopping, and she purchased;"SH Carl's Issues", a four year old American Saddlebred for Mary to use as an all around horse, for lower level Dressage, Fox Hunting, and maybe a little baby eventing. He is still green and learning his lessons daily!
Imp proved to be a much more challenging horse than he seemed to be at first, but has managed to go to a few Dressage shows and recently I have been battling some health issues; and with COVID, we have mostly stuck to home turf, with only a few clinics and trail rides out. But I have a new trainer now who comes to the farm, so I am hoping maybe we can squeeze in a show before the end of the year. I am still drawing, and have an extra room in the house for a painting studio I am looking forward to christening with a first canvas. That is all for now..lots of changes, but still be-naggled and on the farm!
