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…

NaBloPoMo Day #6

Day 6 - My horse's favorite food


I don't feed many things other than hay and grain.  Once in a while I will do carrots or apples.  Normally the mares just get Rounders cookies each day.  So I don't really know what to answer for "favorite" food.  All three of them enjoy the cookies!


I will say that Dreamy would not eat carrots when I first got her.  She absolutely REFUSED them.  LOL!  I used to give carrots at night check instead of the cookies, but I had to give Dreamy apples instead.  I started to add carrots to her PM grain and after leaving the chunks a few nights in a row, she finally started to eat them.  She is hands down the pickiest horse I have ever met!


Sparky, on the other hand, will eat ANYTHING!  She has eaten just about every type of food I might have on me at the barn or at a show.  She is not picky AT ALL!


I am not sure about Reva...I have never really offered her much besides the apples and carrots and cookies!


Reva thinks she wants a piece of pizza from my husband.  LOL!  He wouldn't share, so I have no idea if she likes pizza...hahaha!

  1. When I got my first standie (Story) off the track, she refused carrots--I think they must've hidden meds in them at some point. She learned to eat them, eventually.

    I also had a horse once who wouldn't eat apples--he'd smash his lips together and raise his head up high so I couldn't even reach his mouth. Then, one day, he got hungry...and all I had with me was an apple. After that, no problem. >g<

  4. Aww, what a sweet picture. One of the horses I used to part board loved grapes, specifically green ones! NEver tried feeding those to my mare... but she'd probably eat 'em. I also know a horse who loves M&Ms.
