What a beautiful morning to go to the barn. When does 27 degrees above zero feel warm? When it happens in mid Janusy in Minnesota. I was sweating doing the barn work this morning. I actually had to strip a layer of long underwear off . The rescue horse Dick with his frozen penis is so close to being totally recovered. I am so optomistic at his full recovery. At this point though he still can't have a day outside because he can'y fully retact his penis into his body and protect it from the cold. Tomorrow will be a busy day. We have 6 horses to get cleaned up and ready for thier sale pictures. It would be so much easier if they didn't have 4 inches of winter fur to brush out. Oh well, if we can sell them from a winter picture think about what they will look like all shedded out in the spring... GORGEOUS to say the very least. I don't look forward to the 6 hours of brushing ahead of us tomorrow. but I know it should give us some good results.

    Thanks for visiting our website. My name is Mary Loch and I have had horses in my life for 33 years now. I have had the great pleasure of meeting many horse people from a huge variety of horse back grounds. From the first time horse rider to the highly skilled horse trainer. I have learned one thing from all of them. We all love our horses and the presence of horses in our lives. We all started with the love of the horse. Then some of us moved on to where we want to be, or hope to be, constantly changing directions, as we see new paths that we can challenge ourselves with. New obstacles  that we can try with our horse companions,  I hope this blog of ours touches you with some great horse stories and experiences and lets you become a part of our STABLE LIFE.
