Farms aren’t JUST for ponies…

I mean really, what’s the point of having a big, giant farm if you don’t fill it up with at least 1 of every single species of animal on the planet?

LOL, but seriously.  I think that may be Brandon’s evil plan… (I can hear him “muhahaha-ing”)

When it was just me, I was totally OK with a farm full of ponies and 1 perfect dog, my beloved Grayce (my blog!… Continue Reading “Farms aren’t JUST for ponies…”

LOL.  I couldn’t help myself.  The answer is who knows?  :)  When we, in the horse world, talk about “teeth floating,” we don’t mean on top of water…

Horse teeth are VERY different from human teeth.  First and foremost, they grow – continually.   … Continue Reading “Equine Dentistry – Do horse teeth actually float?”

Welcome “Boomer” and Rebecca to the Green Barn!

There is a very special place in my heart for people who rescue horses.  It’s hard to believe that a beauty such as Boomer would need “rescuing,” or even adopting but, unfortunately in the world of horse-racing, more often than not these incredible athletes find themselves in less than ideal situations when their racing careers are over.… Continue Reading “Welcome “Boomer” and Rebecca to the Green Barn!”
