2nd Annual Green Barn Christmas Celebration!

This past weekend, we hosted our 2nd Annual Green Barn Christmas Celebration!  A wonderful time was had by all!!!

Although the delicious food and desserts were all a HUGE hit, the star of the show was, by far, my homemade “Chicken Nookle Soup.”

This recipe has been in my family for years and years…  and since I was asked a million times, I promised some of my boarders I would totally share the secret.  … Continue Reading

I’m thankful…

…for Timmy.  Here’s his story.

MIA – Missing in Action

I know, I know, i’ve been MIA.  But with good reason… I promise!

It’s been a hectic few weeks.  Exactly 1 week after losing my precious baby Jackson, I was thrown onto another emotional roller coaster when one of our resident princess ponies at the Green Barn colicked and was very, very sick.… Continue Reading

Stop… breathe… and enjoy :)

You might remember a post I wrote last week, half-joking while airing my dirty laundry about not being in the best mood and feeling quite overwhelmed… basically just having “one of those days,” or in my case, one of those weeks!… Continue Reading

Horray for barn work weekends!

This past weekend at the Green Barn I called a “barn work weekend,” basically just asking for volunteers to come out and lend a hand…
