“This is where I most proudly live, in the little cabin under the big night sky.” That’s what Julia wrote after I took the photo above of our cabin on a recent wintry night. You can read the rest of Julia’s beautiful musings over here on her ConsideringAnimals.com blog post.
We clipped her nails and pulled her shoes. In my recent post “Off With Her Shoes” I wrote about how my wife Julia and I are transitioning her pony Pie from steel shoes to bare feet. In this update, I’ll show you how we trimmed and measured Pie’s feet for hoof boots. But first, to recap, a few pics of Pie having her shoes removed.

Tonight I’m putting together photos of a completely different nature –… Continue reading
Sold Sold Sold: Enjoy your new trailer Etienne and Hahna!
How do you haul a horse and wagon in a single load? With a trailer that can do both. I’ve owned and enjoyed one of these rare trailers for 15 years. It’s served me incredibly well. This week I’m putting it up for sale.

Just too nice a day to sit inside today so we hooked Pie to the cart and took her for a… Continue reading
Merry Christmas from the homestead up the holler. “I’ll be Home For Christmas” is playing (the Bing Crosby version), the wood stove is glowing and Snookie is pondering another cookie. “I’ll be Home for Christmas” rings true this year, just not in original way it was meant (it was written from the point of view of a WWII soldier stationed abroad). With Covid numbers spiking, my wife Julia and I are hunkering down… Continue reading
Siblings don’t usually live together on a 23 foot open boat. In winter. During a pandemic. But that’s what I recently wrote a story about for TownDock.net.
I’ve written a lot for them over the years, from a fifty-foot cruiser with pizza pan portholes to a sticky-fingered Frenchman on a boat called Primadonna. You can read the most recent story right here.
