I promise that there is a very good reason why I have not posted in three months! Actually there are a lot... in August when I was about to do a post, I had a family emergency and doing a blog entry was the last thing I felt like doing. Then we had a LOT … Continue reading August, September, and October Update
Well, I haven't done anything exceptionally interesting this week except rewrite the same chapter of my book three times in two days! I'm still not happy with it, but it's better at least. I trimmed two of my horses hooves yesterday too, well technically I started Sweetheart and dad finished her but I did … Continue reading Ranch Happenings…
It was recently brought to my attention that my last blog was hard to understand. It was also the first blog I tried before I moved over here to WordPress but still... I will admit that I don't really know why I wanted to start a blog in the first place. The idea literally just … Continue reading A question for my followers…..
My birthday was last weekend and my dad's birthday present to me was to help me build a Forecart for my miniature horse that I'm training. It took us a total of about three days because there were a couple things that we had to get in town to finish it. We started out with … Continue reading Miniature Training Forecart
It's been almost 100 degrees all week and we still haven't gotten our air conditioner fixed so se've all been hot and extra tired lately especially my dad.

I looked up from my desk as I was working on my book and saw this bright fellow staring … Continue reading Nice weather on the ranch
So I had to put over 100 new wood post staples in today and pound back in all the ones that got loose in one of our smaller pastures, and I took my filly Sweetheart to do it. She had gotten a scrape on the post of her shoulder a few weeks ago, nothing bad … Continue reading Riding fence on a fresh horse. What could go wrong?
My dad's favorite horse died last week, and things have been unusually calm. Pep was one of those horses that could open every single gate on the ranch unless it was tied in a way that took two hands and strong fingers to undo. Pep's nickname on the ranch was Hundini and Busy Lips since … Continue reading R.I.P. Pep
Not that I'm complaining or anything, but we have had a very easy winter so far. Pretty much all the snow has melted now and it has been very warm out. It's supposed to be in the 70's this Saturday! We are getting ready to start calving, and we got all our bull … Continue reading Is winter over already?
