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…

Day 12: Close up

It was nearly 70 degrees here today in Maine (in NOVEMBER!!!) so Dreamy had a bath.  I don't think I have ever given a horse a bath this late in the year.  But with her full body clip (for hunting), it really helped her coat.  She was surprisingly good natured about it.  This is her soapy shoulder, BTW.  ;-)

I have a very cool old barn.  It was dismantled and brought here to be reconstructed.  Here are the hand-hewn support beams with Roman numerals to aid the builders.

  1. Lucky that you got a bath in! It was in the 60s here, but we had super high winds and Spencer was a bit nutty, so I didn't try for a bath - but man could he use one! lol

    Sounds like your barn is really neat - I like the old beams!
