Thanks, and Quarterly Updates

Thanks for all the kind comments.

The blog will stay up.  I will try to update quarterly with doings, what I've been learning and, with a little luck, some photos.

See you all in the fall - I'll plan to post after the end of September - and may you and your horses have a lovely rest of the summer!

Blog Tired

It's time to go.  This blog has been running since 2009 - that's six years.  The adventures of Dawn, Pie, Red and now Missy (and Lily, Maisie and Norman at Paradigm Farms in Tennessee), will continue, whether there is a blog or not.  The blog has been fun - I've enjoyed the writing and the interactions with so many of you over the years.  But it's time to live in the real world, rather than on the net - I'm not on FB, or any other platform and have no interest in being there.  There's nothing on here you can't find elsewhere - there's good info on EPM and Lyme, and if you want to learn from Mark Rashid, there are his books, and his FB page, and go audit or ride.  There's some of you I consider friends, even though we've never met in person.

I'm riding almost every day, and enjoying my time and learning with my horses.  I wish all of you the best, with your horses and in the rest of your lives - may you live long and prosper, and may horses fill your dreams.

This blog will be up for at least a while, and then it may go dark.  But the light and the life of horses are in the real world - enjoy the sights, smells and touches of your real horses, and be well.

Cushings/PPID Primer, Part I (from Paradigm Farms)

All three of my retirees at Paradigm Farms - Lily, Maisie and Norman-the-pony, have Cushings/PPID, which is managed by medication.  All three were diagnosed while they lived there, due to the attention and care Melissa and Jason give all the horses that live with them.

Melissa has started a series on Cushings/PPID - here is Part I.  I will also be adding these posts to a sidebar as they come out.

Two Retirees

Here are two of my retirees, Maisie and Lily, at their home at Paradigm Farms in Tennessee - photo by Melissa:


They're both in their 20s, and both have Cushings/PPID that's well controlled by medication.  I think they're looking pretty good - you go, girls!
