The Weird Horse Kid 

December 5, 2016

I saw this blurb today on Facebook.  This was my childhood. And strangely, the other kids did think I was weird 

Edited to add: I texted this to my mom and she asked “who wrote that about you” and was upset someone was being mean to me all these years later.  


New Hay Barrels 

December 2, 2016

Today’s project was to construct, hang and load two new hay barrels.  And I am happy to say, project complete.  These two barrels (the two on the right in the photo) were free because they both some some small drill holes in them. The blue one also has an awkward bigger hole in its side (you can see it in the photo).  

The hard part was getting them up high enough to hook them.  Once hug I don’t take them down often.

I just saw this cartoon on Facebook.  It says it’s by Kellie Lewis.  I laughed and thought – how true. 

Hay distruction

November 26, 2016

Black Friday morning Rich and I picked up a loaf of hay, took it home, and filled my hay shed.  Yea. 

Later we had a pet emergency and had to rush Ash (Rich’s dog) to the vet.  I was in the process of moving ponies around so I stuck them into the field that the hay shed is in.  

This morning I went out and found Simon in the act of mass hay distraction.  

It took a little work to get cleaned up (and every hay barrel and net is currently topped off).  And the ponies are moved into a different field.  

Trail report – oct 23, 2016

Last month I took both dogs and Simon and we did a fun ride leaving from the massanutten visitor center.  It involved a lot of rock climbing for Simon, and I found myself dismounted and crawling back down some of these rock climbs using both feet and both hands with Simon lumbering along behind me like a mountain goat.  It did take us to an amazing view!
