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…

New Look and Name

I figured it was time to update the blog with a new look and name.  I may still tweak it a bit, but for now I like it and think it needed a change!  It's not just about Standardbred Excellence any longer, but the focus will be on the entire farm and both species of animals hahaha!  :-)  Plus, it was time to change the name of my farm.  I called it Moonstone Farm for many years, having dreamed that up way back when I was in fifth grade.  But it seemed that as my own life has evolved, the name of our farm needed to reflect that.  And now it is not just my farm, but OUR farm.  My husband is just as much a part of it as I am, which is one of the innumerable reasons I married him!  ;-)  Of course, that meant that I had to change my barn/show colors from maroon and gray to green (with a hint of maroon and cream).  LOL I'll always be a prissy horse girl at heart.
