Well, I guess I now have a blog...

I have been thinking about doing a blog for a while, but never really got around to it. :)

Where shall I start???

Last year brought about a lot of changes. Joydale Sparklerslas (Sparky) was officially retired from showing at age 25. I have owned Sparky since she was 10 and I was 13 years old. We have been through a lot together: middle school, high school, college, grad school, marriage, motherhood....she is my first horse and have taught me so much.It was hard to make the decision to retire Sparky, as she loves the show ring and does not look or act her age. But I knew it was time. Sparky now gives gentle leadline rides to my four year old son Clarence.



Dreamy Starlet (Dreamy) made her show ring debut in 2007. We tried a liitle dressage and a little eventing, just to see what she was capable of. Or more accurately, what she was happy with. We ended up with nineteen year end awards for 2007 (with 9 of them being championships). WHOO-HOO! I was rather impressed. ;-) Check out our website at www.freewebs.com/standardbredexcellence/index.htm. It has our results and pics, etc.


So I suppose I will use my blog to chronicle what I am doing with the mares. Hopefully I will be able to see progress!! :)
