A Beautiful Season

I hope all is well and the holidays have left you peaceful. Tonight we are expecting our first snow storm and we have brought all the horses in the barn. Most of them like to come in at night. The one who protests the loudest is Cool N Collective, ironically when he first retired here straight off the racetrack, he really wanted to be in his stall, he was uncomfortable outside the first days, now he's had his freedom he doesn't want to be confined. Every time I walk by him, he lets me know he's not happy. After they all settled in, I groomed them and felt so thankful for my job, of caring for these magnificent animals. To spend time with each one and take care of them, brush them, clean their feet, listen to them munch hay gives a peaceful feeling I want to share with everyone. Come visit, feel it for yourself.

December 2nd 2010

Here we go.........
First off. I would like to thank all the folks at ITT Tech for this wonderful website. They donated it to us to help the cause of Old Friends and all off our horses here in NY & KY. We are forever grateful.
All the horses are doing great. Very eventful bringing them all out of the barn this morning. Karakorum Patriot can be quite a handful to walk, he gets something in his head and it's off to the rodeo. When he finally is turned out in his paddock he leaps straight up in the air, I'll try to get it on video. Our farrier, Corey came today and took great care of all of the horses. My husband Mark has been clearing land for more paddocks. Michael Blowen told me the other day that there is over 60 horses on our waiting list, seems overwhelming but with so many great people working on this, we'll make it happen.
