A Revised Plan for Jackson
About a week ago, after a storm had passed through, I tried to put on Jackson's boots so he could go out in the pasture with the others.  I couldn't get a boot on any of his feet -- they had grown too long and it just wasn't going to happen.  We didn't want...

1.  We had dry weather all week but the rain returned last night.  A heavy, wet, warm storm (from Hawaii) will drench us today and tomorrow and then the temperature will plummet.  An Alaskan storm moves in Sunday with a possibility of snow.  During the week...

1.  Olivia asked if we've thought of glue-on shoes/pads for Jackson.  We did try those a number of years ago and it didn't work well at all.  I mentioned it to our farrier this fall in the hopes that technology had improved, but he strongly recommended that...

Craving Lasagne
All the cold rainy weather we've been having made me crave lasagne.  We invited our friends, George and Nancy, to join us for dinner Sunday and I spent the day in the kitchen. I baked a loaf of crusty bread. I assembled the lasagne: lots of homemade sauce (...

1.  I have been floored by the response to my "acceptance" post.  I had no idea it would resonate with so many people.  Honestly, when I wrote it I was hesitant to hit the "publish" button.  It seemed so... personal ... so petty.  It is a HUGE comfort knowi...

An Icy Morning
Sunday we had lovely weather -- for sitting by the fire with a coloring book.  In the morning, we brought the horses into the barn.  It had been raining a bit and the rain was flipping between ice and slush and something in between.  Jackson was wet underne...

Why I Love Tex
While Brett watched football this afternoon, I went outside to work with Tex.  Both Jackson, in the small arena, and Flash, in the front pasture, were taking naps.  Jackson jumped to his feet before I could get a picture but Flash barely moved. When Flash s...

Jackson Has Attitude
...and not in a good way. Yes, Jackson is very sweet and loves people and is everyone's favorite.  But, he can also be a pushy, opinionated SOB horse. Jackson has very thin soles on his feet which means in the winter, when his soles are soft, he will get an...

A Break in the Weather
We were supposed to have rain on Monday but instead we had a sunshine filled morning.  We moved the horses outside, Brett cut up some kindling, I worked in the garden -- and spent some time with Tex. The other day I was able to put a nice tight braid in his...

Fire Breathing Dragon
We keep the horses in the barn when the rain is heavy and the wind is strong.  If we have light, intermittent showers, the horses are out in their pastures.  As a result, there is a lot of moving them back-and-forth.  Last week, while I was at work, Brett t...

Acceptance
My word for 2016 In 2015, I worked hard on being authentic -- my word for last year.  It was a good word for me, it resonated in most everything I did from letting my hair go grey to being real at work.  We ate authentic food which I interpreted as whole fo...
