Jolyn Young

I was bumming out the other day, because the extent of my horse activities these days is pitching hay and filling the water trough. My husband took 6 of our horses with him to day work at a ranch 400 miles away, and I’m taking care of the 2 kids’ horses in his absence. I […]

Savanna Simmons

There comes a time when your good horse goes gray, his walk begins to slow and his back shows a sway. His wise old eyes grow cloudy yet they still have that shine, just as yours do when you think back on his long life with pride. The years in which you gave to me, […]
