3Day Adventures Blog Hop: 3 Words

I stumbled across this Blog Hop this morning as I perused through my reading list, pretending this is not the busiest week at work in our 8 week rotation.  Not only do I love Blog Hops because it expands my reading list, but I love reading the posts.  This Blog Hop was originally created by 3Day Adventures, and in it, she asks you describe your horse(s) in 3 words.

Kidd

Sensitive
Kidd is a red head, through and through.  He's incredibly sensitive both emotionally, and physically.  If one little thing in his tack isn't how he likes it, he will be incredibly awkward and uncomfortable. While it's not in his nature to pitch a full-on fit, he revels in negative tension.  He is easily upset when not spoiled and told how brilliant he is, and while it's nice he's invested, it works against us more often than not.

Fun-Loving

Kidd loves to have fun and is very easily bored.  He is very true to his name, and is constantly picking at things/people/horses and trying to play.  He loves to get out into a change of scenery and sometimes struggles to control his excitement.

Busy

Kidd, as aforementioned, is a very tense horse when not in a full program, and I struggle to develop the relaxation he needs to train correctly.  His brain is constantly busy and as L Williams put it in her post, "his brain hamsters" are in over-drive on a regular basis.

Kai

Accident Prone

I have never, in my life, met a horse as regularly hurt as Kai. I really hope that once she is on a regular training program she will stop hurting herself as most of them seem to be related to her 'over doing it' in turn out.

Jekyll & Hyde Personality

While I wouldn't say she has suffers from a "multiple personality disorder" as she really only has 2... One minute she's sweet as sugar, and the next minute she has the ultimate mare-stare going on with a snarl and glare that would scare a grizzly.

Willing

Kai, thus far, seems to be incredibly willing.  This really sets her and Kidd apart. While Kidd is competitive, he is just as happy (or happier) to waste away in a field eating his life away. Kai likes to get out and do things, and she is quite brave as a result.

AE Bloghop: 12 Tough Questions

Unfortunately, the skies have opened once again and the nearly dry ground is once again, excessively saturated, which means no riding today.  I do have some field trips planned for the near future, but for now, a blog hop to kill the time as the rain drizzles and drips off my tin roof - We'll start with something easy before getting into the nitty-gritty. Q1:  What hobbies do you have outside of riding? Life on a farm is very busy, and I work full time and I am also taking some courses part time as well.  In addition to riding, we raise chickens for eggs and meat, grow and harvest our own hay and crops.  We also tend a large garden and I am planning on attending some local Farmers Markets in the near future to sell eggs and some things from our garden! Q2: What is your boarding situation?  Are you happy with it? I have a 160 acre farm, but sadly given the climate it is really only conducive to seasonal riding.  Being in Northern Alberta, our winters average 7 m

2021 Blogger Secret Santa

Many people missed the Blogger Secret Santa that I hosted last year after speaking with The Printable Pony, our fearless leader in festive fun for the past several years, and in an effort to not step on her toes again I reached out again but sadly didn't receive a response. I'm going to assume she's no longer able to host the Secret Santa (lets face it, she's way better at it than me so wahhh!!) so I'll give it a whirl again because it's so fun! PLEASE SHARE THIS! If you're blogging, post a link in your blog even if it doesn't apply, send to friends, make a special blog post with a link, and so on!  The more people that participate, the better! Last year the cut-off was November 20th and many gifts were still sent/received very late, so I'm going to make the cut off November 10th and hopefully that helps!   I am hoping to get everyone the information for their draw within a few days following the deadline to allow for ample time to research, shop and
