Doc told me he would take me on a trail ride
if I could get the Copperpony bridled!
I made him keep his promise!!!
There is DNR property behind the stable that we
We stopped to talk to Cowboy and a secret visitor!?!
and got into these!
Dusty was feeling a little "ANTSY!"
He did not like the CReepy things around his feet.
I have never seen him behave this way.
He was stomping' his feet, dancing around,
Doc and Dusty Devoe
LOOK who's here!!!
It's a "PONY GIRL"
What fun we had!
We scheduled a ride for the next day.
Will post about our adventures!!!

Things are going good with the bridling.
Copperpony and Dusty Devoe are making good progress.
Doc is hanging in there with us EVERYDAY.
We wouldn't be this far without him.
HE decided we needed to have a change of pace,
so we went for a ride in one of the pastures.
It was just what we needed to clear the minds.
It was such a joy to see DUSTY enjoying himself!
Thank you Doc, and thank you Cowboy for taking pictures.
I have been burning the candle at both ends.
I have a lot of blog reading to catch up on.
Lots of posting to do.
Hope you all have a great weekend!

I cherish these moments.
We are on day 30 of our bridling.
Things have been progressing slowly,
but on a positive side.
Today I felt Dusty took a couple steps backwards.
He wasn't as cooperative.
I was disheartened, sad, frustrated...
I am trying to find strength in the struggle.
Trying to be confident.
Praying he will stay calm and figure it out.
Wondering what he is thinking?
Why is this such a struggle for him?
What was his life like before he became mine?
I will go back out to the stable tomorrow
with hope in my heart.
I pray for patience.
I thank God everyday for this precious gift.
This journey is about life, learning and LOVE.
It's about the love I have for my horse,
we will get through this one day at a time.

Look to this day,
For it is life,
The very life of life.
In its brief course lie all
The realities and verities of existence,
The bliss of growth,
The splendor of action,
The glory of power-
For yesterday is but a dream
And tomorrow is only a vision.
But today, well lived,
Makes every yesterday a dream of happiness
And every tomorrow a vision of hope.
Look well, therefore, to this day.

You see this end of the barn as you go up the driveway.
This is the inside of the barn.
This old truck is in the barn.
So now you are probably wondering how I know
when the house and barn were built?!?
I called the number on the sign to get some information.
The fire was caused by electrical in the old farmhouse.
The man I talked to told me his father-in-law owned
He is a multi-millionaire and eccentric.
He was not is a hurry to sell it,
because he doesn't need the money.
He would carry a contract if enough money was put down.
What we liked about this piece is that it is open. LOTS of sunshine!
I guess I can DREAM!
Yes I DREAM the LAZY TRIPLE J will become a reality
Copperpony got to graze and dry in the
warm sunshine when done
and he got LOTS of carrots and apples!

I love how this journey requires me to continue
I have the desire, and attitude to face my fears.
I am building trust and a deeper bond.
I put my heart and soul in to DUSTY'S well being.
He's given me his love, strength, courage.
I am grateful for the many blessings in my life!!!

Yesterday was a heartbreaking day at my stable
We lost another one of our precious girls
Out of respect, the stable always shuts down
They allow our equine friends to pass
with dignity and grace...
What a beautiful girl she was
I will never forget her eyes

she is my old, new ride!
Have you guessed what she is yet?
Don't worry COPPERPONY
my HEART still belongs to you!
We ride in the beautiful cemetery behind our houses.
Sares is riding Jessesdesertrose's childhood bike.
He decided she needed washed!
He oiled her chains!
She had to have air in her tires!
I never called her "ROCKET" when I was a kid.
But seeing the name on her,
I decided she needed to called
