Truer words were never spoken.
The nieces are 7 and 4, and enamoured with our life in the country. Thursday was the first time the family got to meet Piper and she was an instant celebrity. The oldest neice...
My husband. He loves me so much and works so hard to provide a good, happy life for us. Our marriage is the best it's been so far.
Our home. I complain about our landlord and our teeth-knocking...
"ridding" instead of "riding". Ok, that's not a phrase, but still. Spellcheck, people! :eek: :lol:
If you want to cook, or cook the meats at least, I would come up with a menu and then delegate. Up to you if you want to share the entire menu or let it be a surprise. But decide everything NOW, so...
Holy skinny horse! Glad to hear he has a good home now :)
Looks like Piper unveiled some of her past tonight. I was doing some in-hand work with her... nothing serious just some walking/halting and moving away from pressure type exercises. At one point she...
I like CHT's idea about region-specific. I'm from the South, so I would be thrilled with some real, legit maple syrup, for example.
I love hittin' up the Dollar Store. Good for fillers, little...
Yep! Good friend of ours had an opportunity to get the goats but had nowhere to keep them, so we took them "temporarily". They're basically ours, and that works out for everyone. They came from a...

I'm not that opposed to something with the name triathlon in it. I mean we do three phases, it makes sense. "Equestrian Triathlon" seems a bit wordy though. And is the term equestrian known to...
Me too! :lol:
Just a few quick thoughts that came to mind:
Teach verbal cues. When you're on her, it might help you get her to move forward.
Has she done any work with the saddle, but without a rider? I...
Alright, so far everyone I've talked to really likes Piper. Unless something profound hits me today, that might be it. :D
P.S. Her and the goats are the best of friends!!
She's here! Meet Serenity (ugh). Miss Priss is a 10y/o unraced TB mare. She is very much a project, hasn't...
I do know that this girl had a foal when she was 4 or 5, but that was before previous owner got her so I don't know anything about it.
This just adds to my excitement now!
That's a great idea, hadn't thought of that! Thank you!
Thanks Tex, that's fantastic. Kind of a crazy story too! I appreciate the info. :yes: And I'm also excited to see what she ends up like!
Shameless tease: there will be a new horse in our pasture tomorrow! Will post details once I have pictures. Cause I know y'all just really want to see the pictures. :D
If all goes well, there will be new mare in my pasture tomorrow! She's an unraced 10 y/o TB. Supposedly she was too sensitive for track life......
Oh Elf, dear Elf! A rainy Sunday afternoon poem was just what I needed!
The petting zoo consists of:
1 Old, Cranky blue heeler (ACD) named Hank (50lbs ish)
1 short, squat, wiggly American...
Thanks for the suggestions! This is exactly what I was looking for. :)
