It's almost a year since Lily moved to Tennessee, so she could live outside 24/7. She's doing very well there, and you can see her from time to time (along with our pony Norman who is also there) at the Paradigm Farms blog. I miss Lily's funny, big personality from time to time, but I don't miss having to take care of her!

Picture of Lily
I've been asked about the header - it's a photo of Lily and my older daughter, who was 16 at the time and doing her own training, competing in their last jumper class just before we retired Lily from competition due to heaves. Lily was an amazing jumper - they were double clear and placed third, beating a number of trainers, and would have placed higher but Lily no longer was as fast due to her respiratory problems. Lily had the ability to go much higher - my daughter jumped her to 5' and we know she could clear 5'6"- so this oxer wasn't much trouble for her.
