We had a baby. Before anyone gets the wrong idea, I did not impregnate Mary again. It is a baby horse, a very miniature Miniature filly. Those little things are amazing. Unlike us humans, they’re walking within moments of being born. Of course, they’ve got a leg up on us. Actually, two legs. It’s got […]
When I was a kid, I would get excited by snow days and holidays. Every kid wants a day off from school, and snow days were good for that, as well as holidays. And on some holidays, like Christmas, you got presents and on others, like Easter, you got candy. As I got older, I […]
Today is not a day for reading. Or ’ritin’ or ’rithmetic. It is a day for relaxing. It is a day for barbecues, boating, hanging out with friends and relatives, fireworks. So, with that in mind, today’s blog post will be short, sweet. Enjoy the freedom this day is all about. Happy Fourth of July!
Someone complained the other day about me linking one of my blog posts to a Facebook page related to Miniature horses and Shetland ponies. The blog post was about a friend who is a quadriplegic and participated in her first horse show since her life-altering accident about 30 years ago. The complainer accused me of […]
As a kid, I lived for the Fourth of July. I still like the fireworks and barbecues and there’s always a blockbuster movie that comes out for the Fourth, and I’m a sucker for blockbuster movies. My problem is, once the Fourth of July is over the summer seems to move along at a faster […]
Our friend Jennifer is a quadriplegic who, this past weekend, participated in her first horse show since before her life-altering ski accident about three decades ago. She did wonderfully. She had a cart specially built to accommodate her wheelchair. And she has a great little mare to drive, and does an impressive job with her. […]
As I write this sentence, it is 1:33 in the morning — Tuesday morning. I’m up late because I was moving. I didn’t move into a new house, but I do have a new home for thebsblog.com. Here. Right here. I moved from webs.com to wordpress.com because, well, people say it is the place to […]
This story has a happy ending, but it had a scary start. We were at a horse show in Cannon Falls over the weekend. Friday, about 10 a.m., I was talking and joking with one of the nicest people in our horse show world. He looked and acted fine. An hour later, he was being […]
I need another horse like I need a raging case of shingles. So, naturally, I bought another horse. Well, actually, it was two horses. OK, three. The third horse belongs to Samantha, my 20-year-old daughter. She bought it. But it will be staying at the family farm. So, really, we are adding three horses. We […]
Conversation between me and the gal who took my money at the McDonald’s drive-thru in Cannon Falls, MN: Me: What’s with all the roundabouts? She: The Mayo Clinic donated them. Me: Why? She: I don’t know. I just know it cut our business in half. They shut down the road that was here and put […]
