About Me

About Me

I moved to Texas in June, 2010.  Specifically – Austin, Texas.  People here wear a lot of orange, and listen to music.  I’m not a fan of the orange, but pretty much everything else rocks.

Prior to Austin life had been pretty good, but my first few years here were the happiest of my life. I married my husband in October 2010, we bought a house in April 2011 and I acquired the world’s best OTTB (Off the track Thoroughbred) horse in July 2012. For years we enjoyed the city, worked on our house, played with our dogs (plus a 3rd one Tim let me bring home) and I spent a lot of time riding hunter/jumpers and horse showing my horse, Simon.

In June 2015 everything changed. I became a widow at the age of 30, and my entire life fell apart. Now I’m trying to press on by myself with my small herd of animals. Life is confusing, sad and complicated right now… but it’s still a life worth living.

On this blog you’ll find a lot of posts written about horses, because I primarily wrote about my equestrian life for years. Now it’s a mix of what it’s like to be a young widow, a chronicle of my life and of course – adventures with all my animals.

  1. So, where did you move to Texas from? I moved to Texas from California in 1999…amazing that it’s been that long!

    I think you might enjoy some of the humor on my site http://www.texifornia.com … hope you’ll stop by. I look forward to coming back and reading more of your blog.

  2. 300 days of sunshine sounds fantastic from a farrier working in a wet and rainy UK. Texas is a place I would love to visit and learn some new skills in the farriery industry.

  3. Hi there! This article couldn’t be written much better!
    Looking through this article reminds me of my previous roommate!
    He always kept preaching about this. I most certainly will send this information to him.
    Fairly certain he’s going to have a great read. Many thanks for sharing!

  4. I’m impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I
    encounter a blog that’s both equally educative and engaging, and let me tell you, you’ve hit the
    nail on the head. The problem is something too few men and women are speaking
    intelligently about. I’m very happy that I came across this in my hunt for something concerning this.
