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. having this photo shoot was definitely a highlight of 2019! 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

Good Morning Sheep!

My neighbor owns sheep.  During the fall and winter, when the leaves are off the trees, you can just about see into their field.  My horses are usually not bothered by the occasional sheep noises or glimpses of them through the trees. 


This morning was funny though.  It was very quiet and cold, and the only sounds were the mares moving around in their paddocks, quietly chewing their grain. 


I was lugging water out back to Sparky and Reva when I heard the funniest sheep noise.  It occurred a couple of times and made me laugh because it sounded so loud and odd.  Dreamy was eating out in front of the barn and Sparky made no indication that she was bothered by it or even heard it!


But Reva heard it!  She was not scared at all, but she definitely heard it.  She had the most bewildered and quizzical look on her face (For a horse, that is!  LOL!)  She stopped chewing her grain to listen more carefully and looked out through the trees in the direction of the sheep field.   She looked at me and back towards the sound.  She was so confused!  LOL!  I found this pretty funny and told her so.  I explained what it was.  Yes, I am crazy and often talk to my horses.  LOL!

Well, she actually RESPONDED to me with a soft nicker.  ha ha ha ha


Of course, I can't tell what she was saying to me, but it was such a funny way to start my day!  ;-D
