My Favorite Blogs IV

More fun blogs!

The Reeling: An Unexpected Mareventure - I've been following Andrea for years back when she had a blog about her mare GoGo.  This blog is about her new mare O-Ren, a gorgeous Selle Francais who is every bit a redheaded mare!!  She is complicated and so versatile!  It's a lot of fun following their adventures together.  She also has Pangea, a Canadian Trakehner mare, who is the offspring of her beloved Metro.  The most exciting recent news is that Pangea is in foal to Oldenburg stallion Don De Marco!!!  By now you know how much I love blogs about young horses, well following one from conception is the best.  I'm so excited to see how things go for Andrea and her mares and I can't wait to see the baby!

Racing To Ride - I just recently found this blog and started following it, but I can already tell it's going to be one of my favorites.  Her blog header reads:  The adventures and challenges of a dressage rider in the world of Thoroughbred racing and the horses that fill my life.  Who wouldn't be drawn in by that?  :D  She has two gorgeous Rheinland horses Windtalker and Winndelyn, an OTTB named Beefheart and she's even started doing dressage on one of the pony horses name Gunner.  Fun stuff!

Ranch Girl Diaries - I actually started out following her sister's blog (she quit blogging or it would be on this list too) and then started following this one.  Ranch Girl has a (human) baby that recently turned a year old and she has two gorgeous horses.  Riley (referred to as My Boy) is an absolutely gorgeous Appaloosa gelding and Luna is a beautiful BLM mustang mare.

Slow and Steady Wins the Race - Amy hasn't been posting much either and I miss her posts!  She is an eventer and is training her gorgeous OTTB gelding Steady almost solely by herself.  She has three kids and the reason she hasn't been posting is because she's been sooooo busy with Pony Club so I can't hold it against her lol.  I'm glad her kids are having so much fun.

Sprinkler Bandits - Love this blog.  After retiring her amazing OTTB gelding Cuna (who has sadly since passed away) she got the adorable, green OTTB Courage.  It's so much fun following her progress with Courage since my horse is green too.  :D

Super Ponies - You know how sometimes you meet someone that you totally hit it off with straight from the start?  That's what happened with me and Super Ponies (or that's how it felt to me anyway).  She also has a green horse so we have that in common (among other things like their weak stifles lol).  Her horses are Bre, a Quarter Horse mare and Dickie, an Appaloosa/Thoroughbred gelding.  Dickie is so cute and SUCH a character!!  Trust me you will love this blog.  Posting can be sporadic sometimes because she has a crazy work schedule, but that's never bothered me.  :)

Sweet Horse's Breath - Kristen has a beautiful, sweet bay OTTB gelding named Laz.  I started following her blog shortly after Laz had a severe episode of colic and laminitis.  I had just found her blog, but I cried my eyes out as she made the decision to euthanize him.  This was years ago so I may have the details wrong, but if I remember correctly there was a snow storm that delayed the vet a day and Laz made a drastic turnaround so they decided to hold off on euthanasia.  Laz is still alive and doing great today!  To me that was one of life's amazing miracles and I'm so happy Laz is still here.

The Foxhunting Friesian - You will know from the title immediately why I started following this blog hehe.  Friesian!!!  Daajte is a GORGEOUS Friesian mare that she rides in dressage and fox hunts.  It's so awesome!

The Journey to 100 Miles -  Another Friesian!  Nimo is a gorgeous Friesian gelding that she bought at 14 months old and he's twelve now.  Her blog is about their conditioning and journey toward the Old Dominion 100 mile endurance ride.  I hate to say it, but I'm way behind on this blog too!  Ahh I suck!

The Semi Feral Equestrian - This is a fun blog about two beautiful Arabian mares (mother and daughter).  You have to check out her recent posts to see how they did at a show!  They did so well.  SFF (semi feral filly) did so well and she's so gorgeous!

I only have one post left to finish sharing all my favorite blogs!  I really hope I didn't miss anyone.  I feel like I lost some of them in the move to a new blog reader so if I used to read your blog please leave a comment so I can try adding it again.  :D
