Conclusion of ’16


Starting the Mara Moments blog has provided me with a new creative pursuit in 2016. Mara and I landed at a wonderful new stable home this June, giving us positive pals, great trail riding, and a perfect paddock group. Many thanks for riding along with us through this new experience and we appreciate your support. May the end of this year give way to “new and different” (in good ways) for all of us in 2017.

Blessings on your trail and travels in the New Year.

Iced “in”


The Christmas Day rain has iced over Mara’s paddock, I went under the fence to get into her today, but did not want her to even attempt to walk on the sheer ice to the paddock gate. I have never had my horse “iced in” in their paddock before, this is something new for us. We need some serious melting, and soon.
