A fence post a day, keeps the doctor away(or, brings them to you faster than what you'd like). Lemme tell you, lifting tree trunks, I mean fence posts, is harder than it looks. It's called MANual labor for a reason: a MAN was meant to do it, not a woman(or teenage girl). Good thing I love manual labor outside,eh?
Today was technically my very last day at the stable…Continue
It's a bird! It's a plane! It's Superman!! I never watched those movies(unless Krypto the super dog counts), too long, too boring and unlike Captain America, Superman is boring. But why discuss super heroes(Iron Man,…Continue

When your horse follows you without being asked, when he rubs his head on yours, and when you look at him and feel a tingle down your spine...you know you are loved.
Truly, truly this is a true statement. The first time Cody ever followed me, without being asked, and rubbed my back and blew on my neck a…
Don't cry for the horses that life has set free. A million white horses forever to be. Don't cry for the horses now in God's hands. As they prance and they dance in a heavenly band. They're ours as a gift, but never to keep. As they close their…Continue

He never Spooks and bolts with me, bucked once and never again and I don't have to worry about him breaking away from me... ever. Lunging him…Continue
Let's see.... I'll be seventeen this September 8. That'll mean I'll have been trying to work owning a horse as a good idea into my parents minds for about... Mm.. eleven years? Yes, eleven.
