To see the wonders of God, travel by horse.

Update (Oct 2013): Luna had always been kind of spooky on the trails, especially when we rode out alone without other horses. But since I've been doing the trust exercises with her, now she is showing so much more confidence. I am very proud of my big ol' girl!

Update (September 2014): Luna has become the ideal trail horse. She will ride on roads with traffic, I have ridden her to carnivals and festivals full of crowds with no problems, and last summer, I even rode her through the drive-thru of a Dairy Freeze!! There's no where I can't take her.

Update (January 2015): I've taught Luna a few tricks, including smiling on command and the beginning of the Spanish Walk.

Update (July 2015) I've started to learn to ride Luna with no saddle or bridle! She's doing so well, I'm really proud of her. I'll upload pictures soon.

My Horse's Favorite Treat: Clover! And those soft pastel mints.

My Horse's Favorite Things To Do: Trail ride with other horses, belly rubs, and being walked on a lead.

Pet Peeves: She hates bits, so I ride her bitless everywhere.

My Horse's motto: Trail riding? I have an App for that!

Job 39:19-22
Do you give the horse his might?
Do you clothe his neck with a mane?
Do you make him leap like the locust?
His majestic snorting is terrifying.
He paws in the valley and exults in his strength;
he goes out to meet the weapons.
He laughs at fear and is not dismayed;
he does not turn back from the sword.

How We Met

I have loved horses, especially Appaloosas, my whole life. As a teen, I took lessons, went to horse camp, read horse books, and drew horse pictures. But I never had one of my own. I had to be satisfied riding other people's horses.

Fast forward 35 years: I switched my auto insurance from Geico to State Farm, and I saved enough money that I could finally buy my dream horse! I saw a For Sale ad on the internet, and I HAD to go see her. She became mine on September 3, 2011

Hi & a vote,
We are at 35F right now! Light dusting of snow this a.m. Then warmer temps through the week will start melting our snow. I worry about the horses with these big swings back and forth in temperatures!

Come visit me, Cowboy, Rocky (the blue-eyed wonder horse) & Comet (has new home).

How have things been in this cold snap? Hope all the pipes are okay and the horses are doing well. My hay guy said one of his customers who has about 70 horses had her barn pipes to freeze and she was having to haul water by tractor out to the pasture troughs. Don't know why they don't have the anti-freeze type spices at her barn, but oh well. She was in a pickle.
I rode Allie out in the pasture yesterday and she did well out there too. We loped a little and she was real good about letting me steer her (gotta dodge all the fire ant hills, which is a challenge). She seemed to understand the step around better yesterday after sleeping on it. We're still only doing one step and only to the left right now until she gets it pretty good, then I'll introduce going to the right and add more steps as she's ready. Might be turning into a handy little horse (except for her half-acre stop, lol). I was really happy with her. Trimmed her fronts afterward and it was dark by then.

Come visit me, BJ and his mom Gracie & Allie.

Your horses are beautiful. I have never ridden Jax in the snow. It is my goal. But, our winters have had to much ice underneath. So I will wait. Someday soon I hope. Vicki & Big Jax

Come visit me, Big Jax.

Hope you're staying warm and the horses are doing well.
All that nasty weather stayed well to the east of us. I saw FB pics of my nephew's kids having a high old time playing in the snow amongst palmetto trees...There's something you don't see every day.
My very good friend came over and we stapled a plastic barrier around the pipes under the back porch. So sweet of her to help me with that dirty job. She made a yucky job fun. I also took advantage of the hard freeze to worm the horses. Everybody looks good, but Dee has dropped some weight and she is prone to worms. She also needs her teeth done, but that'll have to wait a few weeks. Otherwise, they're all fluffy and still acting stupid with their "frozen" brains, lol.

Come visit me, BJ and his mom Gracie & Allie.

Hi & a vote,
The pics of Rocky in the snow were from last year. It's been too cold to ride so far this season!! I like your new pics, the Santa horse one and the one of the two horses being ridden... I have one pic just like that of me and my daughter riding Rocky & Comet back in day.

Come visit me, Cowboy, Rocky (the blue-eyed wonder horse) & Comet (has new home).
