So like I was saying in the last post, Miss Faar colicked pretty badly last week. Our weather here has been pretty chilly at night and high 90's during the day and insane humidity. I went out to feed for the day earlier than usual because I had clients scheduled early that day. At about 5am … Continue reading Faar Filly: The Great Tummy Ache
My hubby has always gotten me Mother's Day presents because of our fur children and I get him Father's Day gifts too. We also use it as an excuse to go somewhere and eat a steak and have delicious beer. This past Monday Hubby told me to go ahead and order some stuff that I … Continue reading Fat Loot
I worked Rev a little yesterday. More mental than physical. His breeding season is coming to a close and today he helped me water my garden and other plants. This may sound insane but he had to do it with my hubby's mare following us around(she lives in the yard and mows it). We also … Continue reading Preparing Mentally.
Basically, we bought a horse trailer that needs a lot of work. We have a stock trailer that would be easily useable for Rev and we have hauled him in it many times. I just wanted a trailer that's smaller and more "Horsai" and more of a home away from home. So after my big … Continue reading The Endurance Rig.
Her name is Faar. I think it's cool and Arabian sounding and I want to go Faar with her, dangit. There is a reason I ended up with her, though. She happens to be an asshole. So shortly after I got her, the husband came out with me and pushed our son around in his stroller … Continue reading The Faar Filly Chronicles.
Well, I guess the show went pretty well. Only one halter stallion lost his shit and mounted his handler. So that was the only person I yelled at. I consider it a win. Of course, he was an Ayrab. He was absolutely stunning, though. He was a clear winner in the class but I couldn't … Continue reading The First Show of The Season is Always The Most Interesting and Other Things…
Wish me sanity as I go judge the first horse show of the year tomorrow. Also, stay tuned for another possible Exciting New Thing. Bet you can't guess what it is... Of course, it's a horse. I honestly don't know if I will accept this one. I feel like I am getting a lot on … Continue reading First Show of the Year and Yet Another Possible Exciting Thing!!!
So a little background on my new filly Faar. There was a reason I ended up with her. It was known that I was looking to *possibly* lease or purchase a quality Arabian mare or do possible embryo transfer to my husband's mare. I had been shopping for stallions all fall 2016 and had narrowed … Continue reading Faar The New Filly.
A quick spoiler on The Exciting Thing. Friday I agreed to take a horse sight unseen. This horse was a handful and was returned to her breeder from a previous owner. The breeder being a very responsible woman took her back and commenced to finding her a home. This is all I knew apart from … Continue reading The Exciting Thing!!!
Soooo... I just wanted to check in real quick and update. Today I finally rode Rev. He has been worked 3 times with the crupper and this was his 4th time wearing it. It was glorious. I forgot how sensitive he is to *everything*. I really need to pay attention when I start horses, to … Continue reading Quick Check in and an Exciting Thing(Maybe)…
