Happy Easter Everyone!
It wouldn’t have been such a beautiful day at the barn if I was doing it alone and didn’t have so much help through the weekend to prep! Thank you to the entire Bella Vita Family for doing extra work to fill shavings in stalls, do blanket changes, and do additional shifts all weekend! Next time I’ll try to get more photos!
Thank you Erin, Katie, Nicole, Missy, Jan, caitlyn, Chip, Barb, Dee, Stephen, and Debbie!!♥️♥️♥️
Thank you Michael Alway for spending the day teaching us to better communicate with our beloved ponies! So much to take away! Now just to keep it all organized in our head! For those that participated or audited, what was your biggest take away message?
Best invention ever!!
Beautiful day in the battlefield with our fearless ponies! Chip Garber
Fancy Pants is learning all sorts of new things in Pa! So happy she is under the care of the wonderful Kate Carlson and being loved on by her student, Corey!
Please bring me back to this moment during our artic blast, to remind me there are more good days with this job than bad!
Sun kissed, green grass, quiet happy horses, and my barn helpers!
A wonderful day for the Battlefield!
Nap time. Babe sleeps with a smile.
We are happy to share this note from Tara Swersie, CEO of Event Clinics, about what you can do to incorporate COVID-19 protection protocols into your equestrian activities. As worldwide concerns about COVID-19 continues to
Now what excuse will they come up with if there is not a dark and scary corner!?
Good side is we hadn’t turned Marco out yet and the ash had been attacked by the ash boring beetle. Mother Nature just saved us a few thousand.
Thank you for all those that keep your beloved aged ponies in my care!!!
One day his coat won’t shine quite as bright,
His eyes won’t sparkle quite how they used to.
His legs will become tired and he’ll take a little longer to get up.
He won’t come to the door when you bring his saddle out anymore and he’ll find those jumps just a little harder work than he did before.
But he’ll never stop loving you.
He’ll never stop waiting, with pricked ears, to hear you arrive in the morning.
He’ll never stop grabbing your zip if you stand too close.
He’ll never stop throwing his bucket over the door when he finishes his dinner.
One day he'll grow old.
One day his body will slow down and he will let you know it’s time to hang up the bridle.
And when that day comes, give him a hug, hold him tight and thank him for everything.
Give him days in grass filled fields under summer sun.
Give him love, attention and never let him believe he is anything less than perfect.
Don’t cast him out into a far away field to be glanced at for the rest of his time.
Don’t hand him to the groom and downgrade him to the stable at the end of the yard.
Don't try and pass him off to someone else as a companion and let him go somewhere strange and new at a time in his life when all he needs is you.
Love him, exactly as you did when he was in his prime.
He'll never stop loving you, so never stop loving him.
Nothing prettier than ponies in the snow! If I didn’t get your pony this time, I’ll be sure to get them on the next one!!!
