Happy Birthday Takoma

Happy Birthday Takoma

I just wanted to do a quick post to say Happy Birthday (Month) to Takoma Star!! She is 36! I have had Takoma since I was 11 – she was my very first pony. She is in pretty good health for 36; she’s a little blind and hard of hearing, but she has maintained a good...

Who’s the Shark?

Who’s the Shark?

**This originally appeared in Mid-Atlantic Jack Rescue’s monthly newsletter, The Howler. It’s an update about my little Julep!** As a lifelong equestrian, I have been around Jack Russells for years. There was always one or two at the barns at which I rode, running...

2016 in Review

2016 in Review

I am typically not one who complains about the years. There are good and bad days within each and every year, so it’s hard for me to generalize an entire year as bad. But this year was one of those for me, and if social media is any judge, it wasn’t so great for most....

Meet Mint Julep

Meet Mint Julep

If you follow my Instagram account, then you know that last month I adopted a rescue dog! After being a one-dog family for nine years, we recently adopted Mint Julep, a Jack Russell terrier mix, and she has absolutely stolen my heart! James and I had decided that when...

The Good Life

Blizzard 2016

Blizzard 2016

Wow – what a weekend! So I think, technically, what we had was not, in fact, a blizzard. Apparently the snow didn’t fall quickly enough per hour for it to be classified as such, but I’m classifying it. We had a blizzard! It started snowing Friday evening and did not...

Resolutions + Projects

Resolutions + Projects

I must confess, for the first time in quite a few years, I did not make any New Year’s Resolutions. Why? Because I usually don’t keep them – or only keep half. I normally feel pretty good about that until my husband reminds me that half is only 50%, which is failing....

Home Sweet Home

Home Sweet Home

Hi friends – I’m back! If you follow me on Instagram @marylandequestrian, you probably figured out that I was on vacation last week. My husband and I started off in East Rutherford, New Jersey, at the Kenny Chesney and Jason Aldean concert at Metlife Stadium. Later...

Rain Check

Rain Check

Rain, rain, GO AWAY! So has it absolutely poured in your part of the world? Maryland has seen the wettest June on record, which came after a May where we had very little rain. In mid-May, I was walking around, looking at the cracked ground in my horse fields, and...
