The Backyard Horse Blog

Welcome to The Backyard Horse Blog! Ever since I was young, I have dreamed of owning horses and keeping them at home. For sixteen-plus years now, I have been living the dream. Am I grateful for the experience? You bet. Would I trade these last sixteen years for something else? Not on your life. But has the dream been a fairy tale? Um, no. Has it turned out like I had expected? Double no. Backyard horse-keeping certainly has been fulfilling, fun, exciting and satisfying. Yet it has also been grueling, frustrating, disappointing and down-right heartbreaking. Through this blog, I would like to explore all these and related facets of a horse-filled life. I hope to offer useful information to you, the reader, through my experiences and reflections. Come saddle up and join me for the ride.
