As I’ve mentioned before I am addicted to buying and selling stuff on Facebook, specifically the ETT group. It’s a sickness I know but I can’t seem to refuse a really good deal. The other day an item on my dream list came up at a great deal and in my size. Herm Springer stirrups! […]

The girls are settling in the new barn. I’m at the barn twice a day right now. My morning feeding and turn out person doesn’t start until next week and though this barn is closer to the house making the trek twice a day can be rough. In other words I’m tired as all get […]

It was moving day. The day started out with heading down to the new barn to finish up installing buckets, bed stalls and just get everything ready for the girls. My better half was really awesome making sure i was calm as even though i was excited moving is always stressful. We got everything done […]
