Meet Possum

August 25th, 2008 · 2 Comments · Uncategorized

Jen’s new horse arrived last Sunday and he’s just such a doll.  He’s a 6 yr old quarter horse and is as playful as Blue – messes with cell phones, plays with the water hose, and scratches his entire body along the roundpen panels.  Unfortunately, without his coggins report he’s isolated out front so he […]

Still recovering

August 25th, 2008 · No Comments · Uncategorized

I’m at the angry stage of grief, angry that I can’t do chores like normal, angry I can’t ride horses, angry I can’t use my pinky finger to type…. pretty much angry.  The swelling in my leg is going down and I can flex the calf muscle which was the doctor’s fear – that the […]

Wow, thank you!

August 20th, 2008 · 2 Comments · Uncategorized

I can’t believe the kind comments and emails I’ve received from y’all, it really means a lot.  One friend even brought homemade cookies over last night and they were chocolate!  Thank you all so much. I should clarify that when I say I have no answers I mean that I was simply asking him to […]

To hell with 8 seconds, I know I lasted at least 20!

August 19th, 2008 · 2 Comments · Uncategorized

After nearly a year of few incidents with Buck he decided Sunday that he was done being ridden.  He told me in that ever-so-clear manner that only horses, or bulls, can use.  There was no need to guess what he was saying, no need to question, no need to call a horse whisperer.  The statement […]

So I blew up my computer

August 13th, 2008 · 1 Comment · Uncategorized

I don’t know for sure that it actually blew up but I know there was a loud popping noise and some smoke before it sighed deeply then shut down.  Forever, apparently.  Blowing up a computer is bad enough when one lives, works, and breathes with the computer but you know me, when I have bad […]

Buck’s buck sucks

August 12th, 2008 · No Comments · Uncategorized

I’ve been riding him now for several months and really, there haven’t been a lot of issues but rather improvements.  However, about the time Kellie started getting him on the bit and we began training each day, his mounting issues progressively worsened.  He went from raising his head high in the ground and tensing up […]

Equine dentistry

August 11th, 2008 · No Comments · Uncategorized

The subject of dentistry for horses has really come full force in the last few years.  Most behavior and feeding issues are often addressed first with the mouth.  What I mean is, the first question most people (trainers, vets, etc) will ask is if you’ve had the horses teeth checked because poor teeth have come […]

I love an honest horse

August 9th, 2008 · No Comments · Uncategorized

After letting Cinnamon rest a few days I put her in the roundpen for a nice workout – I was dying to see what her reaction would be.  I looked her in the eye, positioned myself at her flank and sent her around the pen.  After running frantically for several minutes she began giving me […]

Killer bees are really mean and cranky

August 8th, 2008 · No Comments · Uncategorized

Last year we had a couple board their three horses here at the farm and then they moved to Shreveport in the fall.  Their mare, Cinnamon, is positively the meanest horse I’ve ever come across.  This mare arrived with her youngsters, a gelding and a filly, and I suppose since she’d never been separated from them […]

Meet Tess

August 7th, 2008 · No Comments · Uncategorized

Lisa adopted this 9 yr old mustang mare, Tess, as “wild” from the BLM prison program several years ago then trained her.  From the first time I went out to her farm I was totally enthralled with this little mare and would spend several minutes at the fence giving her some attention.  Although normally not a fan […]
