Colorful Space

 A wonderful friend of mine was out visiting yesterday and as we sat in our gazebo by the pond, she mentioned to me that there seemed to be more of a peacefulness to the property than ever before.  I asked my friend to explain what she meant by that as we had both mentioned that this place always has an wonderful vibe to it, but it seems, it was when she noticed that all 17 horses were now living a life as one herd with no closed gates between paddocks and fields which has allowed the horses to meander from field to paddocks without any restrictions, that there was a sense of ebb and flow.

Letting go of the Fear

It's a new year.  And as with the coming of a new year, we all tend to decide what resolutions or changes we want to make in our life that we can all hopefully stick to. There are always the food resolutions, the weight resolutions, spend more time with my friends and family resolutions.  I decided to not do the resolution promised this year.
I have a plan in mind for 2013 and it's to unfold the dream of a farm that shows compassion to horses and humans alike. The dream to provide people with the knowledge about horses in a way that perhaps they never thought about.

Change of Seasons

As the season of summer changes into the crispness of fall, I find myself changing with the cooler winds that blow across our fields.  When the fields become empty of the soybeans and the eighth of the hay is not even enough for a field mouse to get lost in, I know that the hazy days of summer have ended and a sense of rejuvenation takes place within my body.
 
This is my favourite time of the year.  A small window of beautiful foliage from young and old maple trees, the sounds of the geese gearing up for their trip back to the south, the coyotes at night stirring up the quietness of the dark and the dancing and playing of the horses out in the field.

Horse Camp

Again, I haven't posted anything for a while, but I did want to share the wonderful experiences and and the great time we had here at the farm on the long weekend of Canada Day.
 
Blue Heron hosted another Horsemanship Clinic with Chris Irwin.  Unfortunately the clinic wasn't busy as far as spectators were concerned, we did have a full 2 days of Private Lessons and Train the Trainer Programs which were quite successful.  The horses certainly got what they needed during those 4 days and I do believe people left feeling great about what they learned and what they could go home to with the knowledge to carry on the work with their horses.

TRUSTING YOUR FEELINGS

It's a wintering Sunday afternoon and I thought I'd just sit down and reflect the events of the past 3 days.  My friend Anne Gage and myself conducted our first WOMEN, WISDOM & WHISPERS clinic this past Thursday and Friday.  Doing a 2 day clinic during the week might have been pushing the envelope but I really wanted to try it and I decided to follow what my heart was saying.
 
Now, with the flyers and the advertisements and facebook and emails, you would think we would have a waiting list of women wanting to join us for these 2 days, but what we did end up with was a wonderful group of 5 women (which I was thrilled about) join us at Blue Heron Stables.
