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!

2021 Recap

 I'm doing my Annual Recap early because, well, my horsey-year is over. Between not taking advantage of the re-opening local indoor this year due to time and financial constraints, and Sierra being pregnant, I'm taking a good hiatus from the saddle. I still hope to get my boots dirty from time to time on some of our other horses, but with winter looming in the not-so-far distance, I don't forsee much time being spent on the back of a horse in the near future. While it gives me a strange sense of desire, it also brings an odd relief.  I ended my season on a high, and I'm so incredibly glad I did.  Thinking back to roughly this time last year, Sierra had just gotten home from she-who-should-not-be-named, and I found my recently post-partumed ass chucked in a snowbank amid frozen ground.  She was wound so tight, full of ulcers and half lame whilst I was confused, upset and disappointed in myself for the situation I found myself in.  Once we got her back on the road to bett

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
