Until one has loved an animal, part of their soul remains unawakened.

Ride with your heart and soul ~ your horse can feel it

ABCs Of Me

The other day I saw this post at Oregon Sunshine's blog "Adventures of Life"  It seemed like a neat idea so I asked her if she minded if I borrowed the idea... anyone else want to play along?

A: Age: 37
B: Bed size: Queen
C. Chore you hate: household, folding and putting away laundry and cleaning the cat boxes.  If you mean horse chores then nothing really... after all its been less than a year that I've been taking care of my ponies here at home instead of boarding :)
D. Dogs: 3, hope to get a 4th as an outdoor guardian dog. 
E. Essential start to your day: stretching
F. Favorite color: purples, also greens, blues
G. Gold or silver: for jewelry, either.  I really like the look of brushed nickel for household things like doorknobs.
H: Height: 5’8″
I: Instruments that you can play: none, zip, zero, nada. I can't even sing half decent. Although I used to know how to play a couple simple songs on guitar.
J: Job title: according to my father-in-law, manager.  According to me, supervisor.
K: Kids: none of the human variety.  Of the 4 legged, furry kind 16 (if you include the barn cats)
L: Live: after a sometimes impatient search, on an acreage near Saskatoon, Saskatchewan (Canada)
M: Mom’s name: Darlene
N: Nicknames: Lou, Brat, Smartass
O: Overnight hospital stays: none for myself but I did stay at the hospital all night in the ER with Pie before he finally got admitted (when he had the lung abscesses)
P: Pet peeve: rude people, the lacking everyday consideration kind of rude or just plain stupid kind of rude.  Also people who get animals without thought of what they're getting into.
Q: Quote from a movie: "Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn" Rhett Butler  "I feel the need, the need for speed" Maverick  "There's no crying in baseball!" Jimmy Dugan (which for some reason my friends and I randomly say)  BUT if we could include TV I could have one of my favourite quotes which comes close to something I've said a few times "You know what, there's a ton of lore on unicorns too.  In fact, I hear that they ride on silver moonbeams, and that they shoot rainbows out of their ass!" Dean Winchester
R: Righty or lefty: lefty
S: Sibling: 2, both younger.  A sister and a brother (the 'baby')
T: Time you wake up: usually between 11 am and noon unless I need to get up earlier.  *Please bear in mind that I usually go to bed between 3:30 am and 5 am*
U: Underwear: yes, clean lol
V: Vegetables you dislike: it would be shorter to list the ones I DO like lol.  Veggies just don't do it for my sweet tooth.
W: What makes you run late: I used to always run late.  Now I try to be more on time, but Pie makes me late a LOT
X: X-rays: teeth at dentist, chest for bronchitis/pneumonia, chest for ribs, ankle.  I'm supposed to be getting my knees x-rayed but haven't yet.
Y: Yummy food you make: I bake some pretty good desserts.  For meal foods though... hmm, there's a casserole I make that Pie likes, doesn't really have a name.  I make a good roast, chicken breasts. Most of the stuff I make is pretty basic.
Z: Zoo favorite animal: Tigers, wolves, zebras.


  1. Very educational about you! 16 critters huh? Keeps you running!!!!

  2. I like this! You may see a blog post with it over my way one of these days!

  3. I learned a couple of new things about you...LOL.

  4. Very educational!

    You now have me beat on cats. You have me beat on critters now for that matter too. A year ago, it was a different story.

    Can I ship you another cat? Merlin has crawled into a box filled with brown filler paper. He is UNDER the paper, all ready for me to tape the box up and mail it! (j/k btw)

  5. Sixteen got me. I was thinking I had missed something until I read it included all critters. I don't even want to think about what that count is here. Geez, just the thought makes me shudder.

    I'm so glad you were able to find this place. It sounds like horsekeeping suits you. You'll be having an annniversary of your move coming up. That will be cool. What a wonderful milestone.
