A Foster Kid’s Prayer

“God, please give me a mommy and a daddy who will love me and adopt me. I don’t mean to be bad, but nobody wants me. Can you please make me good enough so that some nice mommy and daddy will want me? Thankyou God. Amen.”  I lay in my bunk bed and prayed with … Continue reading A Foster Kid’s Prayer

Minny on laundry day

That little mini foal is impossibly cute. I've been taking her and her mom, Sugar, out to graze every day, and Minny runs circles around us the whole way there and back. Since we have to re-fence the horse pasture, and Minny is still only supposed to have controlled exercise, Sugar gets tied to four … Continue reading Minny on laundry day

Minny the Mini

At 10:30pm May 12th, Cinnamon Spice and Everything Nice was born! I had noticed that Sugar was acting a little odd that morning because when I took her out to let her graze in the morning, she only grazed for about an hour and then wanted back in the barn. It was pretty warm out, … Continue reading Minny the Mini

Connor VS. the Captain

I was just flipping through some old notes for my book and I came across a little scene that I wrote. I still think it's kinda funny, so I decided to share. P.S.

A foal on the way…

    I bred my miniature horse, Sugar, to my other mini, Georgie, last year. Awhile ago, Sugar was acting like she was going into labor.

I can be pretty impatient sometimes, so I ordered on day shipping. The monitor was delivered on time, but it was delivered to the wrong house and … Continue reading May 2

My horse predicts the weather better than the radar

Sugar’s got a baby belly!

My miniature mare, Sugar, is about 8 months pregnant and she has a huge belly. And by huge, I mean it looks like someone stuffed one of those aerobics balls in her! She recently lost a lot of weight, so I am starting her on some special grain to help her, so she definitely doesn't … Continue reading Sugar’s got a baby belly!

I pulled my first calf!

I pulled my first calf today! Without any help! At. All.  Before I explain the whole story about what happened today that led up to pulling the calf, I will explain what "pulling a calf" means for all my non-ranchy readers. Pulling a calf means exactly that. You loop special chains, rope, twine, or whatever … Continue reading I pulled my first calf!

I am (I hope) going to be a (published)Writer

I did something really exciting today! I applied for a freelance writing job online!  It is a really simple job that doesn't pay hardly at all, but it will put some published experience under my belt, and help me get the better jobs. I have no idea if I will actually be hired, and I … Continue reading I am (I hope) going to be a (published)Writer
