Arch Nemesis

My trail walk last week introduced the start of a very fearful time for me: tick season. The night of the trail ride we found maybe 10 on Estella and 4 on me. Thanks to some helping hands (if you don’t like ticks, it is always good to trail...

Conflicting Thoughts

From the time that Estella started having health problems (last summer), I constantly go through thought battles with myself. “She’s okay. She’s not okay. It’s okay that she is not okay. It’s not okay that she is not okay.” and so on. It has been much easier to keep...

Questions

Another rounds of questions for everyone: Does anyone else have issues with WordPress Reader not displaying all of the posts or blogs that you follow? I recently noticed that it seems like I immediately see when someone from wordpress.com posts something new, but for blogger and non-wordpress people, the posts show...

Mareist

Ellie Mae had her hocks injected yesterday which means two days of stall rest then back to work! Hopefully this will be our last effort and it we can finally move forward! In the meantime, let’s talk about mares. It is no secret that I love mares. Like love,...

Spring

Spring is finally here! And just in time. The last week or two has been rough. Between the miserable weather and getting no answers for Estella, I was definitely feeling impact of everything. After a successful vet visit Friday, I had a wonderful weekend at the barn! Estella started...

The Switch

Thanks to everyone for their input on yesterday’s post! I have officially decided to switch to wordpres.org and I think I am pretty set on a different blog name. Since I have some time “off” right now while Estella is healing, I think it is a good time to make...

Poll (The Non-Horse Kind)

So my premium wordpress expires in April. Because I have been frustrated with the themes and not being able to change everything I want, I have been contemplating switching over to wordpress.org. I have researched the pros and cons and it seems like the switch isn’t that difficult and...

Quick Questions

I have a few random questions so what better to do than ask bloggers? What’s your go-to horse treat? Estella gets apples and carrots everyday, but I usually keep a stash of some kind of treat for times that I don’t have others or as a special reward. I...

Not Even Slightly Horse Related

Unless you live under a rock, you heard that The Ohio State Buckeyes won the first ever college football playoff championship! I am not a diehard football fan, but as an alum, I am feeling pretty excited about last nights game. I am always proud to be a buckeye, but...

Christmas Goodies

I had a wonderful Christmas and hope all of you did, too! I always have a difficult time asking for horse things, but as always, my family and friends pulled through! I got lots of great horsie gifts and will be blogging about them more in-depth, later! I have been...
