Until We Meet Again

 Goodbye for now... —

Sierra left at 5:30 this morning to head down to Carol-Ann's barn to go on consignment.  She has several people lined up to come try her, and what I knew would be a bittersweet moment had finally come.

This week we enjoyed 3 fantastic rides in a row, and for our potentially final ride together I chose to go on a short ride down the road with two friends yesterday.  Over the past few days, I spent a lot of time talking to Sierra and telling her what a special horse she is - far too special for me and the stage i'm at in my life.  I like to think she understands me, but she seemed completely impartial.

Truth be told, I don't have much words right now to explain how i'm feeling, and nothing is written in stone - or rather, no papers have been signed yet - so until something is confirmed i'm trying not to go too far down the rabbit hole.  For now, here's some pictures from this past week while I work to gather my thoughts.


I have hardly jumped in 10 years, but took a moment to have some fun


After Ray jumped her for a bit of video for CA


Friend was pushing her kiddo in her stroller because her horse is injured


I'll miss this beautiful face immensely

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
