I have no storage left on my camera which leads me to have to film on my phone for the vlog today. I may or may not film today. I am sorry that the vlog did not get posted yesterday like I promised. The camera data wiped out again and I can’t find any of it! I will film the day in the life vlog very soon!!!

One Day Better, One Day Worse
Last Sunday it started off cold, but then Shannon was late picking me up so it was warmer when I rode Cider.
When we got to Shannon's horses' stable yard Cider was happily standing, untied, with all her Fenwick and BOT neck and rump rugs draped over her. In the confusion of getting everything…Continue

“I Want the YUMMY Hay!”
MJ has a fixation on timothy hay. He is outside in one of the grass paddocks that also has a big hay roll 24/7/365 so he always has something to eat. But to the refined tastes of MJ the hay in the big roll is inferior to the timothy hay from square bales. The stable workers spread flats from the timothy bales every day so the outside horses can get some, but MJ also…Continue

I have done English for about 4 years now but I haven’t owned my own English tack till about 2 years ago. I am just wondering what brand saddle pad to get for a jumping pad. Thank you!!!
My name is Lucy. What is your favorite horse breed? My favorite horse breed is an Arabian, or a mustang. I have both breeds and many more but my favorites are definitely the Arabian and the mustang.
Leave your fav breed in the comments!
=my Arabian, Aspen.
Going Down a Rabbit Hole
Last Sunday it was COLD at Shannon's paddocks, when I stuck my head out I thought I would not need my winter jacket, but I was wrong, wrong, wrong.
The wind, sometimes gusting, made the shaded “stable yard” cold. Cider did not look very happy to be there and Shannon and Nancy had draped the various…Continue

My Prescription—Ride Horses More!
Over a week ago I got to see my neurologist for our regular appointment. He gave me the usual soundness exam, and when I explained the term he agreed that I was “serviceably sound” for what I do in my life. He agreed that I am serviceably sound, and he actually prescribed more riding!!!! He understands my problems with keeping safe from Covid-19 at my lesson…Continue

What Affects the Legs Can Affect the Back
When we got to Shannon's last Sunday Cider was all groomed, draped with the BOT and Fenwick ¼ sheets over her back, and all four exercise boots were on her legs (plus the Fenwick pastern wraps on her front legs.) Cider did not look completely happy, but hey, it was cooler and nippier, plenty of reason not to be…Continue

Then Life Interferes
I just got to ride twice since my last blog, my grandsons visited, I got a little sick, then Debbie went on a vacation, so I did not get to ride this week at all. Of course my balance is suffering, right now I have a tendency to want to face plant if I don't watch every step, hopefully I'll get to ride Cider tomorrow and start getting my body back. Right now my…Continue

We’ve all seen the pleas, about to ship, this horse needs saved now.
I know there are pitfalls and a definite dark side to the slaughter horse industry. Setting that aside for the moment, what if you decide that you can’t let the horse go? How do you decide to take the chance and pull that horse? There are many reasons horses end up in kill pens. Lameness and behavioral issues are two big ones. There are also many good horses who end up there through shear bad luck. What are the odds…Continue

People kept asking when it would be available in paper form? An ebook is great but a book you can hold in your hands has a special appeal. After lots of work and with a…Continue

I actually have something new to report this week.
In my last post I described how draping the Fenwick quarter sheet of Cider's croup while she was being groomed and saddled positively affected her. After that I went on line to the Fenwick site and bought her a pair of pastern wraps and a pair of leg wraps.…Continue
