New Kid in the Barn

The bay wonder mare has a new companion: Cedars Rajiyyah, the grey wonder mare. I am leasing her from my mom for two years or so. We’ll be working undersaddle, possibly dressage or over fences (if she likes that). Rajiyyah is a bold-moving mare with a gentle, inquisitive disposition. She Read more…

Strange things…

Have you ever joined a Web site like Reunion.com? You can search for, and sometimes find, people you knew in college or high school. Some times this is a good thing, other times it just brings flashbacks to preferably-forgotten memories. When I was in middle school, I met a wonderful Read more…

Making Progress

The Bay Wonder Mare(tm) strikes again! It has been well over a month since I’ve written and a lot has happened. I baby-sat my neighbor’s horses for a month and that took up a lot of time so my posting time was greatly reduced. Let’s see… during September I started Read more…

Frustrating feet

I think I should expand my consulting business to include “horse health specialist.” With all of the special requirements Isis has for managing laminitis and insulin resistance, I’ve learned more with her than all of the years I’ve had horses.

Trippage

Isis has been steadily recovering from her fall in the spring. We both have been. My knee and ankle are doing better. She is losing weight and back in regular workouts. She still periodically trips. The chiropractor pointed out that Isis probably trips when she steps on a pointed object, Read more…

Team Isis!

How many horses do you know who have a full staff of professionals? Isis does. I need to make t-shirts that say “Team Isis” for her farrier (podiatrist), chiropractor/massage therapist, veterinarian (doctor), trainer, and owner (me). Five people trying to make one mare sound. My friends think I’m a little Read more…

How nerdy are you?

My friends will definitely not be surprised… Overall, you scored as follows: 2% scored higher (more nerdy), and 98% scored lower (less nerdy). What does this mean? Your nerdiness is: All hail the monstrous nerd. You are by far the SUPREME NERD GOD!!! And for more fun: How computer savvy Read more…
