Healing Encounters & The Heard


Mara is enjoying some warm temps at home. I had a day of pleasant healing encounters and beautiful art. Sharing some art at The Heard Museum showing the horse human connection. Special and lovely experiences.

Desert Trail

Laura, Grace and Lucy joined me on a desert trail! Mara would find the rocky climb to be out of her comfort zone. Good desert terrain and warm temps made for a nice trail adventure day. Mara and the horses at home had warm temps today too.

Animal-Assisted Therapy 


Mara and Lindy (my comfort pup) are home this week with special pals. Jay and I headed to the Southwest. We have enjoyed seeing animal assisted therapy all along the way. Six therapy/comfort dogs were on our flight from Minnesota. AAT is a type of therapy for emotional well-being celebrating the human animal bond. I’m thankful for my therapy/comfort companions.

Icicles on Eyelashes


It was below zero for my Mara Moment today. Mara is walking so much better and has another fresh poltice pad now reinforced with duck tape (thanks Hannah.) Both her eyelashes and chin whiskers had icicles! However her heart and thick coat were warm in the bright sunshine. A quiet, cold and abbreviated visit for us.
