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

My apologies in advance if this post offends anyone… but my experience in the horse world AND the science world is that us horse-gals and guys have pretty much seen the worst of the worst, and so for the sake of knowledge – read on.… Continue Reading

So… it’s been a minute or 2 since i’ve blogged.  Wellllll, more like 2 years – eek!

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…

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

Now I truly love ALL horses… but sometimes you come across one… or two… that makes you take a second look…

Dying of cuteness overload!!!!!  Welcome “Lucy and Archie” and owner Mary Kate to the Green Barn!!!  Mary Kate imported her 2 adorable Thai Ponies when she moved back to the states to go to college after years of riding professionally overseas.  … Continue Reading

I was called in for help last month in rehabbing a sweet babe named Evie who found herself in a heap of trouble when she chowed down on a bunch of leaves from a Red Maple tree.

It’s such an odd thing – this toxicity – it’s well known to most horse owners that Red Maple leaves are toxic, but no one really knows why… and the other weird thing is that the leaves aren’t toxic if ingested while live, it’s when the leaves fall off the tree and wilt that they become dangerous…??… Continue Reading
