Ice Storm hit Watkins
It was more of a rain storm, but it froze into the sliperest, nastiest ice possible. It was so slippery that I couldn't get to the barn by walking upright. I got half way across the yard and fell down. I was then throwen a rope and pulled to the barn. How embarressing was that/ To get back to the house I took a scoop of free choice salt and mineral thats' used for the horses and SALTED my way to the house. Don't laugh it worked!! The ice postponed the photographer for a day. It never fails, bring 6 extra horses in to the barn for the night and something will change your plans. and you got alot of extra poop to clean up!

    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.
