Friends of the Green Barn

2 years in the life…

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

Although my website hasn’t reflected it, there has been a LOT going on at the barn!!!  I was thinking recently about how much i’ve missed writing and keeping the world (or my little world at least) updated on all the amazing, difficult, heart wrenching, beautiful and hilariously fun things going on around my little piece of heaven… the Green Barn.… Continue Reading

A few weeks ago we welcomed FOUR new faces to the Green Barn the SAME day…

“Tucker,” a sweeter-than-is-right 4 year old OTT gelding whose talent is obvious to all who meet him, and “Lily” a just LOVELY 6 year old Welsh/draft cross who looks like she’s floating on a cloud as she extends in her trot across the flat; and their owners – Lauren and Becca!  … Continue Reading

Dear Harriet…

Dear Harriet…

Words cannot express how brave I think you are.  Standing by your pony’s side just like you did and being there for him when he needed you most was a beautiful sight for me to see.  Mozart knew he was loved by you unconditionally, and that you were the reason his last several years on this Earth were so wonderful.  … Continue Reading
