Skippin on Cloud 9 was grazing in a grassy pasture filled with sparkling daisies with a backdrop of tall blue spruce trees. What a cheerful setting for this blue-eyed beauty!
Her loving owner writes that this buckskin paint mare "literally takes your breath away when she aims those baby blue mascara eyes at you. She has a way about her of easing the day's tensions and you find yourself smiling. To watch her in motion is a whirlwind of… Continue

Goals: When you begin to start thinking about making a musical freestyle or Kur for you and your horse, you should have some clear goals in mind before you get started. You must be able to answer some questions.
1.What will this musical freestyle be used for?
2. What level will you be competing with this music?
3.What type of competition will you be competing in? ( Local or USDF or FEI or National or International?)
4. Have you ever competed with a… Continue

We have 15 mares due this year. The first two, Unforgettable and Shandy, will be 300 days at the end of January. We will start watching them shortly after the New Year.
We have 10 cams up at our farm, but not all are on at the same time. We currently have cams 1-4 on in the main barn 24/7 just to keep an eye on things. Cams 5-9 will be on when needed and 10 & 11 are in the baby barn - used if the mares back us up and we run out of room. LOL Last year we had alot of mares that… Continue

This is what the spirit of the season is all about...
MCBRIDE, British Columbia – Two frostbitten, emaciated horses were recovering inside a warm barn on Saturday thanks to volunteers who spent the week before Christmas digging the animals out of snow in the mountains of northeastern British Columbia.
Birgit Stutz said Saturday that she and other rescuers cheered when they finally finished digging a half-mile escape route through the snow for the animals. The horses had… Continue

It's a snowy Boxing Day in Aurora, Ontario. Having no respect for time and a head full of cold symptoms, I managed to pull myself out of bed around 10:30 a.m. and have been able to simply enjoy the experience of being -- such a rare occurence lately with all the hustle and bustle of the past few months. My spirits were warmed as I ate my granola and fruit breakfast and read the report in today's Globe and Mail (front page too!) of the successful efforts of a group of people in McBride, British… Continue

Is one of your goals for 2009 to become more organized?
One thing that helps me stay organized is creating a weekly "To Do List" every Monday. As a special project, I designed a printable "To Do List" for each week of 2009. Each week's page has a column for listing things to accomplish that week, a calendar for the week with space to write in appointments or deadlines, an inspirational quote and picture of one of my horse paintings (of course!)
I'd like to share my weekly… Continue

Regardless of which discipline you ride, it's very important to sit straight and square in the saddle. Can you tell if you're collapsing at your waist and sitting crookedly?
Ask a ground person to stand behind you.
1. Are your shoulders level (i.e. the same height)?
2. Is your seat in the center of the saddle so that each seatbone is the same distance from the middle of the saddle?
If your shoulders aren't level which means that one shoulder… Continue

It's the night before Christmas and I'm out in the barn
Blanketing my horses to keep them all warm.
They're eating their dinners, tucked cozy in stalls,
Not aware that it's Christmas, or any day special at all
They dream of spring pastures from their pine-scented beds.
No visions of sugarplums dance in their heads
.But we people are thinking of merry parties and such
Quickly doing our tasks so we don't miss too much.

My fridge is full, the last of my online shopping arrived today (nothing like cutting it fine!) & I'm looking forward to a few days of good food, great company & lots & lots of riding :-)
I hope everyone has a lovely festive season & those of you with yards full of horses still manage to take some time off to enjoy.

Monty dog has gone on his hols to Wales over Christmas but in his absence I am being ably assisted by Mini, our Jack Russell terrier. He is very cute but also very naughty!
However, at this time of year he is proving very useful. One of my suppliers really let me down & was late shipping my order, which meant that lots of people might not have got their gifts in time for Christmas.
I threw a minor tantrum & asked that the delivery was given priority shipping &… Continue

The past couple of days has been a frenzy of order packing here as the men across the land who are lucky enough ;-) to have horsey wives & girlfriends realise that it is less than a week (!!) until Christmas.
Poor things always sound super stressed on the phone but are soothed once I assure them that they have chosen a nice gift that will be there in time for Christmas & beautifully wrapped so all they need to do is get it under the tree!
Personally I'm slightly… Continue
