|Danny in his trail gear. Danny is my 19YO green bean; he was a rescue.|
My horses continue to grow and develop, and I as a horsewoman do so along with them. We started out with a new trainer in January who came to the house off and on. She was supposed to help with Danny and Aragon getting better about the trailer, and with Neeko on a few of his minor quirks, but that simply didn't gel. She was a complete dud, but we found another trainer at the beginning of summer who helped quickly and immensely with Danny and Aragon. Little by little, things are falling into place. Everyone now loads in the trailer reasonably consistently, and they are all decent trail partners. I need to put some time into each of them for different things, but we are finally at a good point for me to do that. Everything in time.
I did a little painting recently, and am looking forward to incorporating that more into my routine again. I mostly am doing still life subjects to get back into the swing of things, and enjoying every minute of it. I plan to put together a website soon, and I'll update this page when I do.

Things always come together in time. Just as we are promised, all things work together for the good of those who love Him.
I am compiling some thoughts for new horse owners, words of advice for horse keeping and management. Some are a bit tongue-in-cheek, but there is information I wish someone had shared with me when I got my first horse. Stay tuned!
