Fall 2021

      It is already Fall!  The horses are starting to grow in their winter coats.  I know this just by watching the white parts of Haddy, my Tobiano Paint.  It starts to fluff up more than her other hair.

     I wanted to post some photos of my last show at George Washington's Mount Vernon near Alexandria, Virginia.  It was a big success with over 8300 visitors on Saturday and Sunday, close to 50 sutler/vendors, and a few reenactment units!  George Washington also made an appearance!

     Participating in this event is a highlight of my year.  So many come to visit, and it has a wonderful atmosphere with the sights, sounds, and smells of a reenactment but with funnel cakes!  That is at least what I smelled as I was just catty corner from the food vendor - which has its advantages.


Shenanigans with Krista


      It has been awhile since I posted on my blog, and I hope to be more diligent with announcing new products, where I will show up next, and just general research!  I also have a newsletter that I send out quarterly or with special updates to those who have subscribed.  It often times announces sales, new products, or just to say hello!  I love hearing from you, so please go to my Facebook or Instagram pages and like and comment on the posts!  This will increase my research and help with sales.  All of this helps support my beautiful horses care.


Portrait with the shop merchandise shown - well not all of it - on Sunday since our outfits are different


Krista (with me in the background peeking in - she doesn't know I'm there - ha ha !!!)


My American Duchess Dunmore shoes in green with Charlotte Peridot shoe buckles from my shop.  The Dunmore are my favorite 18th century reproduction shoes that they make.


A great photo in front of my shop!


More shenanigans with me trying to make sure Krista didn't fall!

Krista and Gema looked back and saw me peeking in!  This is what our events are like - so much fun, laughter and camaraderie.
