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…

Day Twelve: Favorite horse color

I don't really have a favorite horse color.  I like any color of horse that is well trained and easygoing!  LOL!  But if I really had to chose, I would say chestnut.  I love sorrels, bright red chestnuts, dark liver chestnuts.....any of the variations.  It might be because my first horse Sparky is a chestnut or because I myself am red-headed (remember my senior pic from the last post...??).  ;-)  For all the banter about chestnut mares being so difficult, I have always loved mares.  And I think I get along with the red-headed ones the best because we are alike!  :-D


As Sparky has aged, the roaning on her face has increased...

Crabby face, but shows Sparky's chestnut color!

  1. Funny - up until recently I would have said bay (although I'm happy with a good horse of any color), but now that I have my first chestnut/sorrel (first ever in all my years and years of horses) and am about to get a second chestnut, I must say I'm very taken with them. Pie is very red, which I really like.
