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…

Photo Challenge - Day Two

Yeah, so I forgot about this Photo Challenge thing yesterday. Whoops. :P So here is "Day Two", Saturday!

Here is the cutest kid in the world eating his Saturday morning breakfast, just as a five year old should: in front of the TV! LOL! Yes, this child devours toast. I am frightened to think of how much he will eat as a teenager. :) Now that I look, he is even wearing his 2007 Maine Sire Stakes t-shirt! ha ha ha



Ah, the joys of Saturday morning household chores! :P


It was such a gorgeous November morning, with the temps well into the 60s! Amazing! I am still able to soak hay for Dreamy. Here is her hay soaking for tonight...

Clarence thought it was mighty funny that one of our barn cats, Mac, wanted to give me kisses while I was filling stall water buckets. He kept trying to rub his dirty kitty face all over me.

Yeah, I'm not liking it that much....LOL!


At one point while I was cleaning the barn, I looked over to find my son doing this.....LOL! I was laughing so hard I had a hard time taking the photo. I asked him what he was doing, to which he replied, "I'm taking it's tee-pee, Mama!" ROFL! He got the T.P. part of taking a T.P.R. Wow, I really have raised my child in the barn. :) And come to find out, there is something odd going on with the gray "revving" sound mechanism that he is so astutely taking note of its heartbeat.

While filling the outside water tubs, Clarence wanted to come with me to visit Reva. She was being her usual sweetheart self, and we both were giving her love. Clarence surprised me by giving her kisses. It was pretty darn cute!



Aw!!!!!! So cute! Can you see the MUD in that corner of her paddock? UGGGGG! The rain has been crazy!!!!!!! All three mares need a spa day.

Tonight is the banquet for the Maine Horse Association. I am going with my friend Shelly and we are super exicted! I will post pics tomorrow. :)

  2. LOVE your new challenge! You have captured some priceless moments by having your camera with you! My FAVORITE is of C kissing his mare back-lit by the sun rays. I can see it framed, and a favorite 20 years from now. Thanks for sharing these great moments. Also, your Lucy dog is way too cute (with her blanket on) :)
