Social Media

It’s the 21st century and if you’re not on some form of social media, you must be living under a rock with no service. Social media has changed the world and how we see it. People are going places, sharing experiences and inspiration like never before. Social media has become a place for people of…

Meet Denver

When you hear of someone having an “impulse purchase” you typically think of a pair of shoes, maybe a coat or something they’ve been wanting for awhile. Unfortunately for me and my check book, my impulse purchases are horse related…or actual horses. I’ve had Denver for about a month and a half now, and I…

The Reality of Winter in Port Angeles

Port Angeles is great, and it took me living in the squelching heat of Yakima over the summer when it was still 110 degrees at night after the sun had gone down to realize that the mediocre warm summers of Port Angeles are heavenly. But winters here suck. Why? Because they’re mild too. Port Angeles and…

Maple Pass Loop and 8oz Atlas Pumpkin Spice

Now that I’ve officially gotten a 90% or above on the 2 exams and quiz that were controlling my mental sanity, I invite you to drool over some beautiful pictures of the lovely northwest in its fall cloak and of Lakota. I’m one of those people who shamelessly puts things off. It’s the way I am….

Weekend – Klahane Ridge

With the first day of Fall being bestowed upon us, those of us who love the mountains and live in the northwest know that fair weather is a limited resource and start really taking advantage of it. I started school last Tuesday with a heavy course load of Biology, Psychology, and Chemistry, along with working…

Road Trip Day 5 and 6

Our twisty road, middle of nowhere, just off the coast of california campsite turned out to be a winner in the morning. It always made the routine of feeding the dogs, brushing our teeth, throwing everything in the back of the truck and me detangling my mass of matted hair a little better if there…

Road Trip Day 4

 Warning….This is an extremely picture heavy post..prepare for wanderlust.  Per usual we set out at the ass crack of dawn, throwing everything from the cab into the bed of the truck, locking it down, and setting off down the road. Except this morning I spilled most of a bag of dog food all over the…

Road Trip Day 3

Day 3 started the earliest, I woke up around 4am with the first tiniest bits of light, crammed in the back of the ranger with another person and a giant dog and Lakota. We would later make White Dog sleep tied to the hitch, as he just enjoyed taking up way too much space, way…

Road Trip Day 2

We kicked off the day bright and early, catching the sunrise on our hunt for gas and breakfast as we scooted our bleary eyed butts out of Portland after a morning of hugging, well wishing, and strong coffee with our host. Dogs loaded up, and truck loaded down we set out for Bend, Oregon. I…

Road Trip Day 1

Day 1! We started Monday morning, heading out of Ellensburg WA, at around 8 am after doing some quick cooler filling grocery shopping, filling the gas tank, and organizing the back of the truck, and of course getting coffee. We then set off to Oregon, I had a few places on my list that I…

Happy Tuesday

Happy Tuesday from the office. Lakota is passed out snoring on the floor after just a few rounds of chase the moose. I’ve started looking into agility classes for her to keep us busy during the short winter days that are quickly approaching. Sullivan leaves on saturday, and on Friday we leave for our ROAD…

Ta Ta for Now, Sully. 

I take great pride and pleasure with the work that I do with horses. It will never cease to amaze me what a gentle hand, some ass kickings when needed, TLC, and gentle guidance can do for ANY horse. Pippin, my main squeeze to the left in the above photo usually delivers the ass kickings…
