Recapping 2019

I had many great horsey experiences in 2019!  I am really pleased with how the year went overall; nothing is ever perfect, but both horses are sound, happy, and healthy, which is really what matters to me. Some of my 2019 goals were met easily or with lots of hard work, and a few of them were utter fails haha.  C'est la vie! Let's recap! Happy, health, sound Both mares are doing well in this regard!  Dreamy will be 29 this year, and while she definitely shows signs of her age at times, she overall looks and acts much younger than she really is!  Ellie has really matured this year, filling out as well as mentally becoming more comfortable in her own skin.  As she will be eight this year, I feel like we have moved through the baby phase. having this photo shoot was definitely a highlight of 2019! Continue lessons with Beth and Babette This goal was met and then some!  I took almost weekly dressage lessons with Beth and monthly jump lessons with Babette. Thanks to the

The Zombie Chicken Award


Yay!  The Zombie Chicken Award!  This award was bestowed upon me by my fabulous blogger friend On The Bit.  The Blogger who receives this award believes in the Tao of the Zombie Chicken – excellence, grace and persistence in all situations, even in the midst of a zombie apocalypse. These amazing bloggers regularly produce content so remarkable that their readers would brave a raving pack of zombie chickens just to be able to read their inspiring words. As a recipient of this world-renowned award, you now have the task of passing it on to at least 5 other worthy bloggers. Do not risk the wrath of the zombie chickens by choosing unwisely or not choosing at all…

She wrote the following about her reasons.....

Standardbred Excellence is my third recipient. Just reading about her mare’s COPD makes me twitch with stress! Yet this very cool woman hardly seems phased by it. She just takes things in stride and making sure that her mare is the best she can be. She also is much braver then I am right now because she has already taken her “non-traditional dressage horse” to recognized shows this year! And done well at them! If anyone could inspire zombie chickens I know she could! If she can make taking care of her two lovely mares during a Maine winter seem like fun those zombie chickens would totally have to show some respect!

So thanks On The Bit!  :)  Hopefully this will inspire me to BLOG something now that my life is back to normal AKA my seniors have graduated and my last day of school is June 18!!!!  WHOOOO!
