Dreaming of Summer – Deep Sigh!

Jan 11, 2009

I found these pics I took of Joe Bear in the summer. Only now in the winter time do I realize just how gorgeous he looked. I can’t wait to get back to those days! Winter time is so hard on them 🙂 Paula

Reign Day Made It Home to Massachusetts!

Mar 21, 2010

We have made it home! Nine and a half hours after loading into the car this morning, we arrived home (it was around 6:30), whereupon we unloaded Reign Day and Ty and they met our “crew”. Day was very good. He was a bit nervous, but in a very sensible manner, quietly regarding everyone and everything, and it did not take long before he seemed to be more interested in eating his hay than being nervous.

Bank President Excels at Everything!

Apr 20, 2010

Just a quick note from Minnesota. Banker is excelling at everything, he really is too smart for his own good. He is learning to bend and we have almost got him over the playful bucking issue. He has an amazing canter stride and really tries hard to please. He is so cute when her free jumps! He gets all excited now and you can’t even hold him at the end of the ring anymore.

Feb 4, 2009

Since I last spoke with you (which was when “Ana” aka Titania, was out with a swollen leggie) I have gotten back on her and restarted everything. She is figuring out how to stretch forward and down, and is figuring out her leads (and even some flying ones)! We’ve done fences a few times, and…

“Bubba” goes Commando

Feb 15, 2009

“Bubba” (Lynn’s Vision) and I tried to ride with a hackamore today. We decided to try going bitless. His new teeth are making his mouth a little sore and he hasn’t learned yet to put down his head and my hands are not very soft. So when we ride his nose is up and he’s…

Popular One Has People!

Jan 16, 2009

We received the papers on Moose. Impressive. I wanted to know his birthdate and now I know. Thanks for giving the trainer’s son our number so he can see Moose when his family comes down in April. We are cold here but Moose has a thick winter coat and a blanket.

Allegedly True – Lives Up to Nickname – “True Sweetheart”

Sep 27, 2009

Allegedly True aka “True Sweetheart” stood quietly for the farrier and then went on a hunter pace at the Metamora Hunt. He did very well and stayed right with the other four horses — did not spook at any thing.
