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

My horse predicts the weather better than the radar

I can count on one hand and still have fingers to spare how many times Sweetheart has been so spooked I was on the verge of completely losing control and her going into a full on panic, and every single one was because of sever weather.  Late afternoon today one of the neighbors' horses got … Continue reading 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.

Pulling a calf means exactly that. You loop special chains, rope, twine, or whatever … Continue reading I pulled my first calf!

Pokemon Go at the Vet

So while I was at the vet earlier this summer for my dog to finally get her cast off, and I was a little early so I had to wait awhile. While sitting there with my dog happily sitting at my feet I think, "Hey I wonder if there's anything good nearby." So with this thought … Continue reading Pokemon Go at the Vet

August, September, and October Update

I promise that there is a very good reason why I have not posted in three months! Actually there are a lot... in August when I was about to do a post, I had a family emergency and doing a blog entry was the last thing I felt like doing. Then we had a LOT … Continue reading August, September, and October Update

Ranch Happenings…

    Well, I haven't done anything exceptionally interesting this week except rewrite the same chapter of my book three times in two days! I'm still not happy with it, but it's better at least.  I trimmed two of my horses hooves yesterday too, well technically I started Sweetheart and dad finished her but I did … Continue reading Ranch Happenings…

A question for my followers…..

It was recently brought to my attention that my last blog was hard to understand. It was also the first blog I tried before I moved over here to WordPress but still... I will admit that I don't really know why I wanted to start a blog in the first place. The idea literally just … Continue reading A question for my followers…..

It took us a total of about three days because there were a couple things that we had to get in town to finish it.    We started out with … Continue reading Miniature Training Forecart
