Yes, you're right … last you heard Diamond was comfortably transitioning into her new life in the pasture with Happy, Maisy and THE GELDINGS ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE FENCE (!) She was not in a stall and paddock. …

Sunny Owns the Barrels! (June 22nd, 2013)


I've been Practicing,   and … Sapphire's Loss May Just be my Gain!

Sapphire is very much feeling the full effects of summer. In fact, I think she feels that as #2 in the herd, and a teenager, she is very much entitled to take a day off from training if she feels inclined.  On the other hand, Sunny is very willing to leave the 'herd' for a while and play with us in the round pen. …
