Horsing Around at the Barn #Horses

Horsing Around at the Barn

By Erin

This week, I thought I’d give a little update on all the horses. The boys are all doing well, especially Chup with his training as a jumper! Come join us at the barn and see how Big, Blaze, Brady, Style and Chup like to ‘Horse Around!’ ;)

Styles

American Style- Aka Styles, is still in rehab and confined to his stall from his surgery back in late January. He no longer has his leg all wrapped up though. He’s doing well, but still has a long way to go. He’s happy, but he sure can be a monster! I’m sure he can’t wait to be able to get out and run and play around like the other boys do again!

Blazing-Horses

Blaze is a sweet boy. He loves hanging out in the turn out and going on short rides with me. :) I think he also likes posing for the camera!

Don’t Forget to Stop and Smell the Roses

Don’t Forget to Stop and Smell the Roses

By Erin

Everywhere you look, spring is blooming. Time for new growth, new beginnings. Sometimes I get so busy with work, I forget to stop and smell the roses. This weekend I had a chance to do this though, and boy was I glad I did. Look what was there to greet me!  I love spending time in my garden and taking care of them. Hope you enjoy these spring blooms from my backyard! It’s just too bad you can’t smell how fragrant they are on here!
