Foal Friday

I always find it absolutely fascinating to watch horses grow and develop, and with Foals it seems to scratch that itch on a near daily basis.  Dory is just over 2 weeks old and growing like an absolute weed.  I haven't been nearly as hands-on with her as I was with Amara due to being nearly 8 months pregnant, but regardless I'm happy with her.  She's easy to catch, is about 85% on leading (occasionally tests pressure), doesn't care at all about fly sprays, picks up all her feet, and is very friendly.  Watching her unfold, despite being quite strong right from birth, is always remarkable and each day she looks more and more like a horse than a plate of spaghetti.

A few hours old Vs. nearly 2 weeks old

She's really hard to get decent photos of because she always wants to be in my lap

She's going to be a pretty solid girl!

Amara Vs. Dory at the exact same age. Amara was very hunter-ish, while Dory appears to be much more of a sporty type.

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
