His name is Teaspoon, and he is going to be my pony.

His name is Teaspoon, and he is going to be my pony.

He’s just a wittle Teaspoon.  He’s available for lease.  I think he’s adorable, and even though he needs a lot of work to get into any kind of show ring – I luff him and he’s going to be mine.  I’m going to start leasing him in November, and try to move him to a boarding facility closer to where I live. He’s got a dog-like personality.  Loves to be groomed, loves attention, etc.  I wouldn’t say any horse is…

Adorable English Springer Spaniel Gifts on Etsy

So I love dogs, that’s pretty obvious.  What may or may not be obvious to you, is my small shrine of English Springer spaniel stuff.  Everywhere I go, if I see a dog store I pop in and look for cool Springer stuff.  Obsessive?  Yes a bit maybe. Another great place to look for unique gifts for the dog lover your life is online, and for that I like Etsy.  Stuff is hand made on there by different artists, and…

How to make an Equestrian Ribbon Quilt

How to make an Equestrian Ribbon Quilt

I’ve wanted one of these for a long time. I mean, you don’t even need to be a horse person to think that the quilt/wall hanging to the right is really, really pretty – not to mention creative!  If you haven’t seen or heard of one of these, it’s a quilt made entirely out of horse show satin ribbons.  I’ve done different kinds of horse showing all my life, and have secretly been lusting after one of these.  However, there…

OH MY GOD. Do you think it’s too late to get them to come to the wedding? Package #2 one pony for one hour plus paint the pony game $125.00 I don’t even think I can begin to describe to you what I would have done for this as a small child.  For whatever reason, I never had a pony birthday party.  Don’t get me wrong, my childhood was not scarred by horrible birthdays… but the pony ride thing never happened. …

Pony Pony Pony (oh yeah, I’m getting married in 2 weeks)

I went to see Teaspoon today, and loved him.  Going to ride him some more, and need to do some number crunching and barn hunting.  His owner is really sweet, and genuinely loves her horses so it’s always really great to deal with people like that.  I’ve been around horses enough to know that anything can happen and not to get my hopes up, but I’m going to go out again this week and ride. In other highly important (probably…

Going to see a man about a horse

Going to see a man about a horse

I’m going to look at a lease horse tomorrow. This is probably the worst time ever for me to go look at a lease horse.  I’m getting married in two weeks, and there is SO MUCH to do that I’m starting to freak out.  To top it all off, I have a cold that’s really getting me down.  So there’s ton to do, but I don’t feel up to 100% to actually do it. Financially, I can afford it but…
