Real Assets

What is an asset?  My father, an accountant, would say “property owned by a person or company, regarded as having value and available to meet debts, commitments, or legacies.”  Ok, probably not, I just copied the definition from google.  This is what most people see as an asset.  A home, car, tractor or tools would [...]

Here Horsy, Horsy, Horsy.

Are horse’s livestock or are they pets?  Many people feed them treats like a dog.  Many people play with them in their stalls or in an arena.  Many people buy them toys to play with in the stall or in their pasture.  But, they live in a barn or pasture.  Horse also live in large [...]

Involved vs committed

The chicken and the pig decided to open a restaurant.  The pig asked what should we call it?  The chicken replied “ham and eggs”.  The pig said “no, I would be committed, but you would only be involved.” People toss around the word committed, but most just mean involved.  Committed comes from a do or [...]

  “Everyone creates realities based on their own personal beliefs. These beliefs are so powerful that they can create [expansive or entrapping] realities over and over.~Kuan Yin” Another quote I love is “if you believe you can or you believe you can’t you are right.”  Belief creates your reality, your reality does not create your [...]

  I love to listen to people talk about horses.  I would say the 90% of the people have something good to say.  The problem that I see is the terminology that everyone uses isn’t the same.  I believe the biggest misunderstood word is “soft”.  Just because a horse holds his head still doesn’t mean [...]

What we do

      Art is what you do when you have time and no one is watching.  What if we had no excuses.  What if we had more time to practice our art, craft our art or make our art without distraction?  No financial restrictions.  The only thing left is your own limiting beliefs.  I’m [...]

The bright side

  I have been working on being proactive not reactive.  The more I do this the more my problems become my solutions. If every problem in life is seen as a learning experience and the solution to the problem teaches how to get to your goals then everyday is better than the last. What experiences [...]

Small Step

I think of the small things that I have done that have made big changes in my life.  I decided to call Horseshoe Lake Arabians on a whim.  I needed a job.  I had an offer to work road construction which would have been a lot more money, but something told me to take the [...]

Barn Smarts

  I have all sorts of ideas about how to work smarter and be more efficient in the barn from hanging our bridles in the arena, to stalling young horses closer to the round pen.  Basically how to save steps while working.  Sometimes I think it’s just because I’m lazy, but it does help me [...]

Squeaky wheel

    Well isn’t this ironic.  Last week I blogged about the squeaky wheel on my manure spreader.  On Thursday I had a packed day to get ready for the holiday weekend.  Guess what happened?  Not only did the wheel fall off the spreader, but the entire hub broke.  I spent a couple hours I [...]
