Diaries of an Injured Moose & a Cute Filly

Sierra finally drove me nuts enough to kick her out into the pasture and within a week she had injured herself.  In natural mare fashion, she was stoic as heck and didn't show any lameness.  Admittedly, I didn't even find it until after I rode because I just gave her a super quick brush because we were pressed for time.  Once discovering it, I decided to give her time off to heal.  It didn't hit anything of importance luckily, but I want to stay on top of it's healing. She's locked back up in a paddock and the wound itself is about 60% healed but we're still dealing with some swelling.  Life has been absolute insanity lately so I am very behind in blog land, so here's a quiet Friday post to keep things moving until I have some decent content to share.

I swear she's taking her time healing because she's loving all the extra snuggles and hand grazing

A lovely hole ..

05/23/19 - The 'hole' is gone and it's just a surface wound now, but we are still dealing with some swelling and hair loss

Looking fantastic but would still like to see more weight on her

Blog Hop: 2020 Summary; Covid Edition

 While we all live in different towns, have different goals and different lives - but one thing that we all have in common is what a wild and wonky year 2020 was.  The reality is, it's all affected us in one way or another, and with 2020 coming to an end it's time to reflect and look hopeful towards an improved 2021. What's the best thing that happened to you in 2020? Personal: Hands down, the birth of my daughter .  After 4 years of fertility struggles, I'm beyond grateful and though some days feel like an eternity of struggle, confusion and pain, my heart has never been more full. Horsey: It's hard to choose. Despite hardly riding, I've had a lot of wonderful horsey-filled memories this year.  From the birth of Phascinating BRR , my second homebred to date, to the few rides I got to enjoy and making a major investment in my breeding business, there's been lots to be thankful for. What's the worst thing that happened to you in 2020? Personal: It's

The Purge

I've been mulling over the idea of doing a post regarding the integrity (or occasional lack of) in the equestrian community for some time, but I couldn't seem to develop a clear vision in my head of how I wanted to piece it together.  I think the reality is, the topic in itself is messy and clouded at best, so I decided to throw all my thoughts out through my fingertips and help myself make sense of all these big feelings I've got swirling around. It's no secret that to some extent, equestrian activities are for the elite. I'm not necessarily talking about those who were born into a Trust Fund or were gifted exceptionally talented horses with easy access to top quality instruction and services but of course, those exist too. I'm talking more so about us - average people.  While you're probably thinking " umm, I'm far from elite and I'm just barely squeeking by * stirs ramen* ", I agree and I hear you when you say you work bloody hard to sup
