It’s Been A While


I’m sorry guys! It’s been forever, hasn’t it? I’ve been pretty busy. In the time since I last wrote we moved, but in a way, we’re not settled. We have unpacked and all, but there’s still stuff to be handled. I sold Lady and Jazzy, because it was only feasible to keep one horse since I would have to board. Rivver has the best possible home that she could have without living with me. She is only a few minutes down the road and I see a her at least once a week. She isn’t as clingy as she used to be, but she still gets excited to see me. She’s 7 months old now. I can’t believe it.

I got my license, finally. *insert clapping sounds* I also managed to snag my dream job! I haven’t officially started yet, but I am looking forward to mucking stalls and getting paid for it!

This winter we have already had 3 snows! We’re just grateful that it isn’t an ice storm like we typically get. Snow seems to melt a bit faster. And we haven’t lost power.

2013 was a very DIFFERENT year for us. It wasn’t the typical year. I’m not sure what a typical year is, but 2013 wasn’t it. It’s sort of ironic. In the beginning of 2013 we had all complained that 2012 had been a boring year and nothing exciting had happened. We wanted 2013 to be much more eventful, and boy it was! Just not quite in the way we had hoped. I do have high hopes for this year though, not sure what or why, I just feel pretty good about it.

    Rivver Storm


    It’s been almost 3 months since I posted about Rivver. I’ll just post a bunch of pictures, but she has been so much fun! She is OBSESSED with being brushed! Absolutely loves it! She follows me everywhere. She nickers when I come and whinnies when I go. She chews on my clothes (okay, so that’s not a good thing). She licks my hand, and she would suck on my fingers if I let her, but her teeth hurt! She seriously is like a little puppy. Such a different horse than I have ever met before. I love her something crazy! We have a special bond I have never had with a horse. Now, of course, there are things to work on, but I have no doubt we will be friends forever. (These photos were taken with my phone and are probably gonna be blurry.)

    You Pick Winner: Barefoot and Dirty Days


    S.E. Bailey from What Say You suggested I write about how barefoot and dirty days of growing up in the country makes for a grounded soul.

    The idea of this topic just made me smile. I have to be honest though, I haven’t gone barefoot a lot throughout my life and I have only lived in the country for a year.

    I have always loved playing in the mud, provided I don’t get June beetles in my hair like that one time… ๐Ÿ˜‰ I am kinda a sissy when it comes to bugs and snakes. But anyway, I loved to feel the squishy mud in between my little toes. I loved to create things with mud and let them harden. I even have some of them still!

    I don’t ever remember being afraid of getting dirty. Now, that doesn’t mean I wasn’t at one time, as I, like almost every other little girl, did go through a short princess phase. I always dreamed of living in the country. I did not care for city life, living in a subdivision. For this very reason the song How Country Feels is one of my absolute favorite country songs. Randy Houser names off just about everything I dreamed to do, or have done.

    One of the best times of my life was going horseback riding with my two very country friends. They did some country things that I had never gotten to do before. It was a lot of fun and made me feel at peace. There is something about spending time in the world as God first created it.

    So, at this time in my life I don’t know that I could explain how the “barefoot and dirty days” growing up in the country make for a grounded soul. But I know it does. I guess there is something about owning a piece of land that makes you feel safe and secure.

    What do you think about country living? Do you like to get dirty? Or are you a city slicker? ๐Ÿ˜‰

    New Baby Bunnies


    Yesterday (June 16, 2013), Ashton’s rabbit, Felicity (bred to Clover) had babies. 5 of them. Three of them look like Clover, two of them are black with white markings.


    That’s the one I want. ๐Ÿ™‚ Assuming it’s a male, it is mine.
