Ten horsey things to be thankful for

Usually I don’t do seasonal blogs but this year, it feels special to list a number of horsey things I’m thankful for.

2)  I am still healthy enough to swing a leg over.

3) Dear friends and horse people to talk about horses with incessantly and ride with.IMG_0546

3) There are more than a few good days of winter here in Santa Fe, not very predictable, but in which we can ride out on the trail.

4) I have more tack than I know what to do with.Sept_October 010

5) A barnful of hay, with that wonderful cold winter scent on it, a dusting of snow skirting the edges.

6) Zuzka, my 21-year-old mare, with her efficient management skills and go-to attitude.

7) Khami, my 24-year-old gelding, who would like there to be food available 24 hours a day.

8) Patches, Ariana’s 16-year-old Paint gelding, who is in love with all the mares on the place and all those he hasn’t met yet.

10) A warm place to come back to when all the horsey stuff is done with a fairly tolerant family. Oh, and as part of that, a little grandson who loves horses!
