About two weeks ago, I started working Ethel using the DUH Method as developed and produced by Clinton Anderson. It's going to be a slow process as I can't seem to get out there to work with Ethel as much as I want or should. Still, we're making progress and... Continue reading

The lack of daylight hours is truly bothersome. Working full time means my chances of getting outside during the day is very limited. I can still make some changes to manage *some* time but the best scenario will be when winter is done! I guess as long as I live... Continue reading

I've seen use of cross ties, especially while grooming, in a lot of the online things I've read as well as in various books and magazines. Up to now, I haven't been able to determine a good place to set up a cross tie area. Last week, after I cleaned... Continue reading

I was referred to this video over on the Lil Beginnings Miniature Horse Talk forum. Talk about incredible training not to mention trust and a bond between animal and human. That's a lifetime at work, to be sure. I can only imagine that most horse owners would love to attain... Continue reading

The idea of creating yet another blog is likely a pretty crazy one. Still, I'd like to document my work with our miniature horses this year. So, we'll give it a try and see how it goes. The worst that can happen is that it doesn't work and I'll scrap... Continue reading

Oh yes, I'm much like you on this matter. At 12 and 16, my kids aren't a) as willing to pose just for the heck of it b) doing anything around the house that should be documented for posterity. And I spend so little time outside during daylight hours that I don't have the opportunity to find something inspiring to photograph (darn 9-5 job!....wait, I'm luck to have the job, so I take that back). I often find myself gazing longingly at my camera bag. I keep telling myself that warm weather, more daylight hours and some free time are coming. And I have every intention of getting out there and shooting myself silly.
