Meet Lacie and Harley.

These precious little golden pups are Chex and Warlock’s new sisters.  No I didn’t get 2 new dogs GSF’s boarder/neighbor did.  Good luck! Let me know when they are done potty training THEN I am up for puppy sitting.

Is the summer really over?

1 Comment

The weather is saying yes.  The days are cooler the nights are cold. The Calendar is saying yes. It is September!  Where did the summer go?  It has been non stop and I am truly grateful for that.  I am still getting inquiries from new students wanting lessons.  Below you will see Nash doing a great job with one of the newbies.  He is so patient and gentle, he makes the best first timer experience.

Labor day weekend we made it to green lane again.  This time we had a tag team group.  2 horses (Apple and Casey), 6 friends , and 4 dogs.  When we weren’t riding we were hanging out at the picnic table on the edge of the trail overlooking the lake.  It made for a very relaxing day out!

So the dog days of summer are over but you have to admit they have the life here at the farm!

Farm Therapy

Have you hugged a horse today?

Farm therapy is the best kind of therapy.

Petting animals can reduce your stress levels.  Check out this article on 27 ways pets can improve your life.  This past weekend a farm family friend and I went to the barn at night for some horse therapy. We were hugging and loving on Nash & Casey. Nash was giving me kisses and my friend was giving Nash a massage. We loved the quiet time with my boys.

Mucking stalls allows me to think.  If I ever need to clear my head I muck stalls.  It is a rhythmical task that allows for the thought process to open up.  I make my best decisions when cleaning stalls

Riding horse forces me not to think.  If I need to “get out of my own head” for a while I get on a horse.  There is so much going on while riding that I am not allowed to let the pesky issue seep in.

Piper the herd dog

While I was working in the barn on Sunday piper was watching over her herd. She actually is not very good at herding the horses. She just ends up barking at them to no real result. Except me screaming at her in my pay attention to me dog voice.
