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…

Sparky Update!

I know I do not often write about my wonderful 27 yo Morgan mare, but she is doing great. She is living the life of luxury as my retired horse. She gets plenty of hay, her senior grain, and lots of turnout. I brush her and keep her trimmed up, because even though she may no longer show, she still deserves it.

I took some pictures today and I am really pleased with how she looks. There have been times in the past when she has not looked "good" to me, but right now I am pleased with her body condition. Of course, having owned her now for over 16 years, I remember a much younger horse, so to me, she looks OLD. She has grayed out so much over her body, especially her face. :( But she is young at heart and still gives me the evil mare face each morning. So I know she is feeling good. :)

There is nothing quite like your first horse. <3 :)

  1. She looks really good E. Having had the honor of meeting the Miss S I have to say she is one grand old lady.

  2. Sparky looks great! Yet another example that old horses are not "supposed" to be skinny!

  3. She does look good! It's good to keep weight on the old ones - that's often their biggest challenge.

  4. She looks great! You know I always bug you about updates because Sparky is the best! Thank you for putting up pictures too...She could be the poster child of an aging horse she looks so good!
