Praying tonight for the families of the innocent children and the brave teachers and administrators who passed away yesterday in CT. As a teacher, I am having a hard time wrapping my head around this tragedy. I've been in lockdown... Continue reading

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. Mine was nice....but today I'm very thankful that I think we figured out what has been causing my horse's lameness. He had an abscess(infection) in his one front foot, and another one brewing... Continue reading

Wow, thank you all. I've been in tears most of the afternoon, and am in tears right now because of the kindness on this page. You all don't really know me, but are praying for my horse. That means so much! Thank you!
Thanks Mary. I tend to think the worst.....hopefully its not as bad as I think, but the way my luck has been lately, not so sure!
I need the positivity of PTL today. Not my best day. Started with getting pulled over, and continued when I got out to ride my horse and he was limping again. We had an injury all summer and I had... Continue reading

gotta say that I love the positivity on this site....I've been super busy lately (seems like everything gets hectic at the same time!) but I still try and find the time to stop by here as much as I can.... Continue reading

this is the view that I love! Finally got back in the saddle this week....haven't ridden my handsome yellow appy since mid-June. We've been dealing with a leg issue that kept us on the sidelines all summer. The vet cleared him for light work. Still have to keep an eye on his leg, but I'm SO glad to ride again! Hopefully we will make it back to the show ring in 2013!!!

I just wanted to say how much I love this site! I don't post often, but I really like the inspirational pics and quotes. I've had a stressful few weeks...moving, starting the school year (lots of changes this year, lots... Continue reading

if you look closely, hopefully you can see a white heart....this is one of the spots on my horse's back. (Sometimes it looks like Mickey Mouse, but I prefer to think its a heart!). Since he's an appaloosa, he has many spots but this one is my favorite. When I'm around my horse, I'm like a 16 year old girl. He is the best thing in my life and probably my best friend. He's been laid up this summer with an injury, which means no shows. As disappointing that is, we've had some real bonding time lately, which means more than any ribbon we've won. Its amazing how intuitive he is....love my big yellow horse!
