Welcome To The World

I've been seriously absent in the blogosphere lately, but for good reason!  Vida foaled!!

I took Vida, my 2009 JC mare who was slated to be a FEI Eventer but sustained an injury, to my in laws to foal out a few weeks ago.  My in laws breed race horses and have been at it several decades, so I felt most comfortable with watchful, experienced eyes on site when the time comes, and though things went relatively smoothly, I'm glad I did.

I'm sure everyone just wants to see the adorable photos so I will save you the long story of the days leading up to the big event, and without further delay, welcome to blog-land you sassy red head!  Her barn name is "Amara" (Ah-Marr-Ahh), and will be registered KWPN-NA as Ostara BRR (BRR = Brookside Range Ranch is our farm name).  Ostara is the wicca Goddess of spring.  

Amara was born at 2AM on Friday, April 19th.  She has a big blaze, white bottom lip, one big stocking and when she was wet when she was born it looked as though she had a small amount of sock (coronet/half pastern) on the left hind as well, but time will tell once she darkens up.  Vida is doing well and has been a fantastic first-time mama!

No photo description available.









Amara is sired by the KWPN Stallion Parcival, and she is for sale but i'm waiting a bit to actively post her.  She still looks like a big ol' bowl of spaghetti so until she grows into her legs a bit i'll just keep snuggling her! We are currently working on learning the lead.  She's very bright and saucy, but looks like she will be a good size and a pretty fancy girl in any ring!

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
