The White Mountain roundup has started and I have to be honest with you all, I’m a bit of a mess. Not being there to observe, to grieve with these horses that mean so much to me as they are losing everything just hurts. My heart aches, my gut churns, and my fingers turn toContinue reading “Working With Such Vigor, All I See Is A Grave Digger”
It has been a small eternity and then some since I have written anything for this blog. That can only mean one thing: Time to make people mad.
I guess we could call this a fairy tale. It features a damsel in distress, a swarthy pirate, more than a few ne’er-do-wells, and of course, true(ish) love. The works, really. As with any fairy tale, we start with a heroine.
If I am being brutally honest with you, it’s been harder than usual to find things to be thankful about this year. My Gramma died. I’ve had a probe and biopsies taken 6 (soon to be 7) times since May to figure out which food is killing me. My cats aren’t allowed in my bedroomContinue reading “To Everything Turn, Turn, Turn… Maybe One More Revolution, Just To Be Safe”
Hi! I’m not-even-a-little psychic photographer Rachel Reeves and this is my partner, Wendy Cloudcakes. Enjoy! Hi, everyone! I’ve been thinking about writing this post for a long time, but I finally sat down long enough to actually type something. I met the author of this earnest – albeit sometimes sardonic – blog six years ago,Continue reading “In Which Lauryn Has Magic Powers”
Family is complicated. It’s one of the basic tenants of this life. The earth is most likely not flat, taxes are always too high, and your family is really weird. Family has a very different meaning and structure to it in wild horse society than it does for humans, but they aren’t immune to thisContinue reading “Cat’s in the Cradle”
Thanksgiving has always been my favorite holiday. Well, my favorite non-religious holiday, anyway. You just can’t beat a day that is filled with family and football. I love being lectured by my Gramma about all the ways I’m cooking the turkey wrong. I love watching the Macy parade with Grampa’s not so subtle innuendo whenContinue reading
Boy, has it been a month or what? Such a month necessitates that I crawl out from the rock I was hiding under. Don’t get me wrong, I realize that I’m not going to offer any monumental, mind-blowing commentary. It’s more of an … itch. Some folks in the wild horse realm are wrong, wrong,Continue reading “The Worst Kind of Gods”
It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. Sort of. I mean, technically our story isn’t set in France nor are there any plot twists involving revolution or guillotines. Also one of the foals is a boy, but the title just wouldn’t rhyme as well then, now would it? We startContinue reading “A Tail of Two Fillies”
Well, the day I have been dreading for over 3 ½ years has finally arrived. I suppose I should be thankful they waited so long instead of having it show up in August, but really, I would have been perfectly fine waiting forever only to have it never show up. What am I talking about? Continue reading “White Mountain Roundup & Spaying Scoping – The More You Know”
