My best friends are my horse friends. And so it was hard to hear my good friend and his horse were in a bad accident yesterday coming back from a horse competition in Texas. Sending out prayers of healing to John and Elway (black horse, red shirt). Come home soon.

Happy girl.

I’m trying to wean myself off my very Gen X abuse of the word ‘literally. ‘Gone Girl,’ contains at least 33 uses of the word, which is 32 more times than any single novel needs. I just have a deep, wrong love of that word; it’s so punchy. I basically (literally) use it instead of an exclamation mark.
I grew up in Montana and I never saw a horse wearing a blanket even in the coldest winters. There are benefits of blankets, especially if a horse is kept in a stall and not able to move around a lot to produce body heat, and of course there are horses who need to be covered for various reasons, but for the most part horses do quite well in cold weather.

Safety on the Road - Horse Trailer Hauling Tips

Yesterday my good friend was in a bad accident while driving from Texas to Washington. He was with a friend and two horses in a large horse trailer (with living quarters.) The accident was not his fault, another trailer came unhitched from a truck and flew into them, totaling the truck and causing serious injury to my friend and his buddy. Thankfully, the horses were fine. I know my friend is always cautious when hauling horses but since I just got my first horse trailer I thought it would be good to go over all of the safety precautions involved in hauling a horse. Here’s a good article I found on the subject.

Khyssie and Jezebel this morning. The temperatures are starting to drop and the horses and mules are shrugging on their winter fuzzy coats.

If the rider really wants to try and present his horse so that it makes a striking impression by means of its splendid appearance, then it is essential to put a complete end to tugging at the horse’s mouth with the reins.

This is the story of raising, training and loving a young horse named Khyssie.

I also explore the love of writing. Because I can't be out at the barn all the time.
