Slept in this morning. It was actually light out at 7 am to go out to the barn. I bet the horses thought I forgot them. I turned out Nickers with his butt full of stitches today. He was so cooped up I thought he'd break down the stall gate to get out with his brother. They have been side kicks since they were born 18 months ago. They would make such a great driving team, such power and size. They are so close in height and weight and looks. I hope we can find a buyer for them to make them a driving team. I would do it but there just isn't enough time in the day or year for that matter. I will have to back out of taking horses to the state expo again!! Last year I had my gallbladder taken out expo week, now my sister, my best friend, has cancer. I will have to spend as much time as I can with her.
Still don't know if Pollina our oldest Icelandic mare is pregnant yet, only time will tell. The vet couldn't find an emptyuterus with the ultra sound wand, he said that was a positive thing. I hope so. It would be a great thing to have a foal on the ground from triggvy this year. I know he's young but he seems to know what to do and where to put it

    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.
