A look at my life, perhaps with a slightly egocentric focus!
Horses, gardening, skiing and fly fishing. Dreamy!

Get a Load of This
I love my trailer. I love being able to take the boys to other places to ride and we have many great open space trails within 30 minutes of us as well as indoor arenas and equestrian parks. I don't love that Doc is undependable when it comes to loading. He's getting better, but we still need to do some circles and 'move your feet' before he decides to get on and stay on. Last week I was able to load and unload both Doc and Pippin all by myself. That felt great. Then, when we were ready to go home, I had trouble with Doc again. I had to resort to the 'flapping the scary hat on the butt' routine.
OK. I'm guilty.
My patience jar was empty.
I think I'm going to take my computer down to the barn to share this video with Doc.
So, what do you think the chances of this working might be? OK. Never mind. Don't answer that...I know. Slim to none!
When I was a little girl I dreamed that I would marry a wonderful man, raise Golden Retriever puppies and have my own stable. I must have done something right because I am living my dream! I married an incredible guy and we've been married for over 4 decades (it doesn't make me sound as old that way)! We raised 2 litters of adorable Golden Retriever puppies. Now, I am retired (that wasn't part of my original dream....but as a child I just didn't realize how 'dreamy' it would be!) and I live on almost 10 acres of land. I enjoyed having a team of Haflingers in the back yard but have recently traded in 2 horse power for 340 horsepower. We purchased a motorhome and spend a fair bit of our lives traveling the country. Life is good!
