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.

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 Morgan Dressage Association scholarship, I was also able to attend two clini…

PRODUCT REVIEW: Protectavest

I have not done a product review in a while!  :)  This is one of my most favorite horse inventions.  It is called a Protectavest!  And in honor of the recent start of hunting season here in Maine, I figured it was a timely review!

My mares are all turned out with their Protectavests on during hunting season.  Dreamy and Sparky have had theirs for eight years now and they look great.  I wash them at the end of the season and pack them away until the following year.  They have not torn, faded, or stretched.   What I especially like is how they are made right here in Maine!   I actually went to the woman's house to purchase the first two, as I was working at the high school in her town at the time.  This last one I bought for Reva I just emailed her and bought it with my Paypal account.

Here are the mares sporting their Protectavests back on November 30, 2008!



Side note: I am NOT READY FOR SNOW LIKE THAT!  Ahhhhh!  LOL!
