Fat Buckskin in a Little Suit

Tate has wormed himself into my heart even though he is the biggest drama-queen with sore feet in the world. I was updating his owner on the adventures of Remus and Tate (sent her the Olympic trials video of the new sport bitey face) and she sent me some photos of Tate from the few […]

Chastity and the search for love

The following is my first attempt at explaining my new identity as a transwoman. I sent it to some friends and got mixed reactions but I think it explains a lot about me and I feel better after writing it. If I post it here then I hopefully won’t lose it and can refer back […]

Every year, without fail, I end up editing and organizing twelve months’ worth of photos in the wee hours of the days before Christmas.  Why?  Because I have great intentions of ordering photo gifts for our loved ones using photos taken throughout the year… but I inevitably end up paying for rush shipping. Why do […]

Since I’m still doing super boring things in the saddle (aka walking around with two coolers and letting my pony snoot all the things in the ring for 20 minutes), I’m going to talk for a while about what we used to do when we did not-boring things. Today specifically I’m going to talk about […]

After our first foray into foxhunting last year, I really wanted to do more of it this season. Henry seemed to love it, I thought it was a freaking blast, and it’s such good conditioning for the event horses. Independence Foxhounds hunts a lot on weekdays, which work always gets in the way of (pesky […]

It’s been sort of running through my head lately but with sliiiiiightly different words.  So here’s my lifelong wish,My horsey Christmas list,Not for myself,But for a […]

Gone 4 Good Now

There are an awful lot of us expats here in Thailand, and just about all of us have a moan about Thai immigration rules from time to time, but the fact is we are foreigners, living in a country where we are not citizens. It’s our choice, and so we have the responsibility to live […]

3day adventures with horses

I love the Blogger Secret Santa gift exchange hosted by the wonderful Tracy at The Printable Pony. And while I love love love giving gifts, receiving them is equally as fun when you’re working with a bunch of horse lovers. Probably the best part of this gift exchange, besides it being with a bunch of horse […]

17 Captain returns out of 17 this season but not a great one. My move out of Hazard and Salah a few weeks ago has hurt me these last 2 weeks. Still getting decent scores every week so can’t complain at all. And my run of captain picks is just amazing. I’ve never had such […]

A Deliberate Life

[A few years ago I had the great pleasure of interviewing for CounterPunch magazine Jesus Melendez, aka Papoleto, a pioneer in the Nuyorican poetry movement and known as “the Poet Laureate of El Barrio”. Because of computer problems, that interview has been lost over at CP and I am hoping that this will at least […]

Katie Price has been accused of ‘starving’ her horse after concerned fans pointed out you could see the mares ribs in a picture.

The 40-year-old TV personality took to Instagram on Sunday to share a snap of her youngest child Bunny, four, sitting on a horse, which she captioned: ‘Bunny loves Princess’ pony Maybe’. 

However, a fierce debate soon raged on in the comments, with some fans accusing her of underfeeding the animal, whilst others leapt to Katie’s defence.

Site Title

Apparently I only use this site once a year, because who even has time to regularly blog these days? [/s?] As I put a pause on my Jeopardy Tournament of Champions binge, I take my yearly musical reflection of all of the great album releases from the last 340ish days and decide to make a […]
