The latest BS nanoShow: New Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke rode a horse to his first day at work, giving his political opponents fodder to dust off an old insult.
My wife Mary posted this on Facebook and it is worth posting here, too. Brought a tear to my eye. (In truth, it brought a rush of tears to both eyes.) Here is what she wrote about our 10-year-old son Shane … Shane lost his beloved horse Frosty in the fall just a few days […]
Enchanted Hollow King Zebulon, aka Zeb, won eight national championships at Shetland Congress in July and another six at AMHR Nationals this month, giving him a whopping 53 national titles since 2010. On our way home from Tulsa and AMHR Nationals, I mentioned to my wife Mary that I would love to track down a […]
I have a hangover that doesn’t involve drinking alcohol. It’s a hangover from showing horses. It’s a horse show hangover. My family hosted two separate Miniature horse shows at our farm over the weekend. It was hot, humid, tiring. It takes several days to recover from a horse show hangover. There is no magic elixir […]
I have a horse show hangover. People who go to horse shows know what I mean. Here it is Tuesday night as I write this and I still haven’t recovered from a week in Des Moines for Shetland Congress. I’ve never quite understood what it meant to be bone tired, but I am sure I […]
As I begin to write this it is 2:20 Sunday morning. Everybody else is packing. I’m writing. Shetland Congress is over. Another one in the books. My family won 11 National Championships, including a win in Classic Roadster Stakes Under. We also won 10 Reserve National Championships, including reserves in Classic Roadster Stakes Over and […]
A couple of things … For the second time in the history of my life, my wife Mary kicked my ass in an Amateur Roadster class at a national show. In 2012, she beat me with Sophie at AMHR Nationals, winning the national championship while I finished second with Zeb. Last night, at Shetland Congress, […]
My family is fortunate to own several versatile horses, and none is more versatile than Zeb. Zeb is a rock star. Shetland Congress began Tuesday and in two days he has won five national championships. He won in Youth Jumper with Spencer, age 13. He won in Obstacle with Samantha, age 20. He won two […]
Dateline Des Moines. It was a good day at Shetland Congress yesterday, and I’m not even talking about all the national titles my family won. It’s the little things that matter, that I’ll remember. Things like watching 9-year-old Shane try riding his bike up a mountain of manure shoved in a corner of the barn […]
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 […]
