Skye? Thank you. My mum always said they made her look like a donkey! Lol. She did have a big head, but it was only because the rest of her was so skinny! She was a kind soul (with 'tude!), and the only reason I can still ride. ^^

~The most important lesson my horse ever taught me is how much I have left to learn~

All photos are of Kody, my 22 year old standardbred gelding.

Most active -



Youngest looking -



Most amazing -
Kody has been with us a little over 12 months now. Prior to us bringing him home he was living in a paddock with very little feed, no farrier work, no worming, no grooming for 6 months. His previous owner had committed suicide and unfortunately the property owners knew very little about the proper care of a horse.

When I brought him home he was underweight, wormy and way, way, way overdue for the farrier. He was a pretty sorry sight.

He is now living out his retirement in my paddock. He is a good weight and sassy as can be. He's all the mares' favourite gelding (picture Hugh Hefner, but in horse form!). He's got an attitude, but is such a gentle old soul.

Jalpa is very special she has been my horse since I was 4 that means for 20 yrs, she has been my best friend, pshyquietrist, my crying listener my everything.
My father died 3 yrs ago (today is his anyversary) I was in collage I had left Jalpa back in the farm, then I herd the news about my dad we were very close, he gave me jalpa as a christmas gift.
I hit depression quite bad, I almost quitted collage, and it was pretty bad I went to therapy but nothing helped, I couldnt dare to go to the farm that had been my dads dream.
One day I got a call from the horse keeper saying Jalpa was pretty bad, I called my brother, and told him to go, and load her in the truck and drive her to the horspital 3 hrs away, he called 30 mins latter she wouldnt stand up and load, I drove myself there cryng all the way 8 months has passed since my dad left. I didnt wanted to go back there but I had to .
I forced myself in and when she say me she standed up and load in the truck she had severe alminitis.
We took her to my brother barn and treat her for almost a year then she was fine.
Jalpa make me realise life goes on she is what I have left from my father, she gave me the streinght to keep going and so I did, I decided to open a bording barn with show jumping lessons, all the kind from 8 under ride her, and she absolutelly love it. The kids have developed confidence in themselvfs most of them sit on her box and talk all the school problems, a lot call them best friend and draw things for her and hang it on the stall. They love ridding her, bradding her, and shawering her. She has teached treiught all her life more than 40 ppl to ride including me.
That's why she is so special
