Here's Gizmo, strutting his stuff. I headed out to the barn this morning, and found it eerily quiet. Nobody but me and Blondie. Quite a contrast to yesterday's hustle and bustle.
There was a barn tour today, put on by the local equestrian conservatory. Our barn took part for the first time. It was a lovely day for it, too! I arrived a little too early, but not knowing if they needed help getting set up, I thought I'd head over and offer my assistance. As […]
Stud Train Comin! Sorry about the crappy picture quality - it's so hard to get a decent pic inside the arena! This is Timmy, one of the stud colts. He's headed to Oklahoma on Monday. He's a cutie, but I think Elmer's got him beat.

Sammy, suffering from some last minute reservations before entering the show ring. He realizes, horrified, that somebody forgot to comb his mane!
I love roadster ponies!! They look so sassy and fun to drive! When I win the lottery, I'm buying a whole barn of them - lol!
