Reminiscing 2018

Accomplishments, Changes, and Loss The memories we have from 2018 put a smile on our face. Some make us laugh with joy and others bring tears to our eyes. We call this life! I’ve had the privilege of spending numerous hours with our friend, Bryant.  He’s made me smile, laugh, and has brought a tear…

Kickin’ It

These next few lines are hard for me to write.  Bryant, my mentor, couldn’t contain his fear the other day.  He was throwing his hands and arms in every direction while shrieking like a baby.  He tried running but his back was up against a panel, and he had nowhere to go. I thought I…

Our First Christmas

Let me set up the scene for you.  It’s Christmas Day 2017.  It’s one of the colder days we’ve had, but we’re warm inside the house.  Presents have been opened; it is now a little after lunchtime.  I walked into the kitchen and stopped short. Come All Ye Horses It’s the “Moutain Gang!”  They came…

Identification Please

Identification Please A few screenshots forwarded to Bryant.  Then I wait, and wait, and wait.  Finally my phone rings, I look down, and Bryant’s face is lighting up the screen. Before he gets “hello” out of his mouth, I’m already asking, “do you recognize any of them?”  My friend doesn’t disappoint; he believes he does. …

Many Horses, Many Pastures

Where Does The Time Go? When one has contact with these many horses on these many pastures, she has access to tons of photographs.  Hence, hours of downloading, reviewing, editing, saving, and then determining which picture is used for which blog and/or Facebook post. Before that process is finished, I’m not sure what occurs.  I…

All Aboard

Part #2 – Sorry we are late in posting, we had a busy, busy day! Excited we finally have our old friend “Top Rail” in pen, we hustled to get the trailer and get back.  We needed to load the band as quickly as possible and get Bryant off to his mother’s birthday party in…

A Trot Down Memory Lane

Finally, some sunshine after all the rain over the past several days.  Dripping from mane and tail it seemed like we would never dry, but we did.  Standing around waiting for dry spells left a bunch of time to stand around and think.  This filly’s mind trotted down memory lane, and I began missing my…

I’m On The Move

My definition for March: Adventurous!  It has been a non-stop learning experience for me since turning one.  I’m on the move, one adventure after another, some I have found to be stimulating and fun while others should never be on a horse’s list of “things to try.”  Let me take you on a quick “ride”…

Hay, Hay, Hay…I’m Back

We are back!   As excited as we are to begin sharing our stories and adventures with you again, please allow us a minute of your time to acknowledge our friends who are experiencing unthinkable loss and grief.  Our neighbors in Texas who begin cleaning up after Hurricane Harvey and are finding overwhelming destruction.  Friends in…

A Day of Photography

Several vehicles passed by our pasture Saturday, on their way into Chahta Isuba Ranch.  I didn’t get a personal introduction, but according to the grapevine a group of photographers were on the Oklahoma Heritage Horse Sanctuary grounds.  ‘Mamma D’ said there were about 14 visitors with cameras in hand. The group, PHOTOG INC (Photographers of…
