I have a good seat and most of the things that Breezy does when she is um… “asserting” her opinion I don’t have any trouble staying on. What got me was when she started getting nervous or jittery in the ring a few weeks ago. […]

She was a brave girl and walked down the ramp from her box stall and into her new paddock. She settled in and said hello to all of her neighbors. This will be a new adventure […]

It’s supposed to rain Friday night and part of Saturday morning, so there is a chance things will be too wet to ride.

It makes you feel fragile, as if any little thing might make you react in a way that might not be appropriate to the situation. That first week after Kasane died, I visited with Breezy a lot. Mostly just stood out in her […]

By the time I […]

No cough, no fever, nothing that would indicate an infection like yellow, smelly discharge. Acting normal, except for the amount of green goo oozing from her nose all over her hay pile. There were […]

My regular vet was out today and used an ultrasound machine on Kasane’s leg. There is a tendon that goes through the point of the shoulder on a horse. The X-rays showed that Kasane did something to damage this area. The […]
