Dear Blog: 5/19/2020

Rain, rain, go away, come again anoth- just kidding, don’t come back at all. I’m not sure how the weather is where you live, but we’ve had nothing but rain for days! It’s actually been a huge setback for Cash and I. I finally felt like we were getting somewhere…he was doing better leaving theContinue reading “Dear Blog: 5/19/2020”

Dear Blog: 5/16/2020

Hey all! I feel like I haven’t had enough time to dedicate to my blog lately. I’ve been busy, but in the best ways. I recently have started making my own rope halters. Getting that page up and running took more time than I had imagined it would, but it is finally up! There isContinue reading “Dear Blog: 5/16/2020”

Dear Blog: 5/7/2020

While I SO enjoy writing about important causes for the rescue, sharing my favorite equine products, and blogging about exciting adventures with Cash, I’ve decided to start a “dear blog” series as well. These will be short, everyday life updates on Cash.  Today is Thursday, May 7th and I’ve been reflecting on a couple CashContinue reading “Dear Blog: 5/7/2020”

The Horsemanship Challenge: Meeting Goals in 60 Rides

During this past January I stumbled across a facebook group for The Horsemanship Challenge with Michael Lyons. This encouraged equestrians of all disciplines to commit to completing 60 rides or sessions with their horse from January 15th to May 15th. This past week I reached my goal of 60 sessions! While I did not achieveContinue reading “The Horsemanship Challenge: Meeting Goals in 60 Rides”

Helping My Horse Adjust to His New Home

If you’ve read my latest blog post, you know that I recently made the decision to move Cash home (to my parents). I got busy with the rescue horses on the Saturday that I had planned to move to him, so Cash didn’t leave the boarding facility until around 6 PM. He loaded pretty wellContinue reading “Helping My Horse Adjust to His New Home”

Bringing Cash Home

Hi there! As most of you know, I was lucky enough to grow up with my horses right in my backyard. Boarding has been a new experience for me. Although I have enjoyed many different aspects of boarding, I’ve recently made the decision to move Cash back home. This is not my personal home, butContinue reading “Bringing Cash Home”

A Day at the Barn

Hey there! If you’ve read some of my previous posts, you know that I keep Cash at a boarding facility. Although I grew up with my horses in my backyard, my adult home does not have the acreage. Boarding definitely has its perks! I have a whole post dedicated to my experiences with self careContinue reading “A Day at the Barn”

Senior Care: Equine Edition

How many of you have senior horses? My first horse was around 22 yrs old when I got him, and we spent seven wonderful years together trail riding and participating in 4-H. Our biggest event was barrels. I loved all of the contesting patterns and so did Murphy. Even in our last year of running,Continue reading “Senior Care: Equine Edition”

Cash’s Journey with EPM, Part 1

For those of you with four legged equine friends, have you heard of EPM? Do you know what causes this disease and what it looks like? Although I have grown up around horses, I wasn’t personally familiar with EPM until recently. My best friend had an incident with her horse that had caused concern forContinue reading “Cash’s Journey with EPM, Part 1”

Whitley 10: A Rescue Story

If you’ve visited the home page of my blog, you’ve seen the little blip where I talk about The Shadarobah Horse Rescue. Helping with a horse rescue has been something that has always interested me. Throughout nursing school I would check out rescue websites, but committing volunteer time is hard when tests, studying, and clinicalsContinue reading “Whitley 10: A Rescue Story”
