Helping a little pony in need
I realize how late this post is. But that's how this blog rolls. The past few weeks have been, well, very eye opening for the harness racing world as far as I can tell. At the end of August, a standardbred showed up at the Bastrop kill pen in Louisiana. This isn't uncommon-in fact … Continue reading The Story (As I Know It) of Killean Cut Kid
If ever there was a rescue or sanctuary for horses who I really believe in it's Blue Star Equiculture in Palmer, MA. This is the home of the retired NYC carriage horses, retired Philadelphia carriage horses, carriage horses from across the country and retired working breeds. They have all different kinds of drafts, from Belgians … Continue reading Saving Blue Star Equiculture
I DID IT!!! I've been searching for background information on Eddy's family tree and the people who owned him since I took him home. I desperately want his papers in my hands with my name as the owner, but so far I've done nothing but hit dead ends. I've found the farm where his sire … Continue reading Are you my mommy? YES!!
Well 1 year and a few days. But that's how I blog y'all. And boy howdy what a year it's been. We have a talking orange in the white house (Shouldn't say that because I have respect for SU's Otto the Orange and calling Trump a talking orange is degrading to Otto). I've changed jobs. … Continue reading 1 Year
I'm no fan of the current administration (Not hard to tell if you follow me on any kind of social media), and because of that I do my best to follow exactly what's going on in DC as. Imagine my surprise when I learned that some new equine regulations were going on. The House Appropriations … Continue reading On the Hill Today
Alright, end of June here we come. Lots of pony stuff happening For starters, I threw my poor boyfriend on Eddy and gave him a lesson. He was...surprisingly good. Nice seat, working on the hands. Eddy was also great and very responsive despite having someone sitting on him who had no idea what they were … Continue reading June Updates
Alright I'm a few weeks behind. Again. But Eddy got to get back into work at the end of April! Haven't gotten to do much since because of rain (Thanks climate change) but we are working. Doing some ground work for now. I'd write more but I'm exhausted. Here's some pictures.
Lives at the rescue I got him from. His name is Hucklebuck. I'm seeing a family resemblance going on-brown/bay and no white markings. And Hucklebuck has a full brother named Look Sharp Jack. That's all I got. Sorry, it's been wicked busy around here.
Spring is fucking gross. I just had a mud/shit tumble today. The entire farm is pretty much under 3 inches of water and mud. Manure is getting mixed into it. There's nothing we can really do-the farm is positioned just so in the hillside that we get all the runoff. And it keeps raining to … Continue reading Spring has Sprung
