Bad behaviour at horse shows – from people!

On the subject of bad horse advertisements, bad behaviour at horse shows follows right along, and I’ve read some interesting posts about simply outrageous behaviour at horse shows from “TRAINERS” as well as their students. It’s a real shame too.  … Continue reading

Well, although it is snowing out now, this morning was actually fairly nice, 34 degrees, although not sunny.  Having only been allowed to the barn for 3 minutes on Saturday because I had my husband along and he can’t be … Continue reading

Really, I really really really am ready for spring. The horses are ready for spring, I’m ready for longer days, warmer weather, more photographic opportunities, more horse shows, and NO MORE SNOW.  Winters take too long and summer goes by … Continue reading

A horse is a horse, but what is with owners?

I’ve just got to say, I’m on the mindset now where I know I’m going to be able to get a horse.  Even though that won’t be happening until around August or so, I am still looking.  I enjoy horse … Continue reading

Weight loss and horse goals!

Well, this is the 3rd day into my diet and watching what I eat.  A good breakfast, a slim fast for lunch, and maybe a little more than I should be eating for dinner, but not that bad.  I’m still … Continue reading

Feb 15th, let the diet begin

I hate being not good enough.
