Blessings of life

It was home time at school. We used to gather local children and walked to our primary school as groups every morning. On the way home, we travelled in smaller groups; basically whomever available to tag together, making sure that no body was left behind. We learned to look out for one another like that...

Leg wraps

I was working for a racing stable some 15 years ago. We tended to horses medical cares where required as a part of the morning routine, which included taking horses for vet visit and changing bandages wrapped on horses’ legs. Those bandages were often used to keep small cuts and scratches clean, and this was... Continue Reading →

Crane and the beams

So I was working with this horse whom were formally called crazy for he was thought to be too sensitive and unpredictable. Next door neighbour to where I live, they are presently building a new residence and so there is a lot going on over the fence. I was exercising this horse until the horse... Continue Reading →

Simplicity

Wether you call it the love, discipline, purpose, duty, custom or habit...we each need a reason to get out of bed every morning.  We then need to know how to put one foot in front of the other for the rest of the day.

If you were expected to engage in physically strenuous activities with a set of feet like that, then you would probably be... Continue Reading →

Ideal environment

Even a plant has its own favourite spot over another. I spent 2 years with a Slovenian lady. I was renting a room at the back of her house, and I got to see her work around her garden. She believed in looking after what was under her care. She also believed in adding value... Continue Reading →

Doing nothing together.

I value those times when I do "nothing" with horses, together. Someone once taught me to go and visit horses often even if you required no work from them. I have since been practicing this visit whenever I see an opportunity. I now think this is one of the most important part of a horse-human... Continue Reading →

More vegetarian food

For the love of easy meals... I shopped local and brought home any vegetables but what's wrapped in plastic. Well, of course except for a bag of rice. I boiled water while cutting vegetables, and, I steamed everything together lightly. Steaming produced some vegetable infused water, so I cooked rice with it. That's it. I... Continue Reading →
