Tending fine-fleeced Shetland sheep and a whole lot more on a small acreage in the Willamette Valley of Oregon

Yep; I've always been one. And today I felt like a giddy kid when Rick gave me the all-clear to train and show my new horse!
"So the leg looks good now, Doc?"
We acquired Lance with a known suspensory injury last September, but I didn't get to bring him home until this month because of another horse I had here in training. I've been exercising him very lightly; now I can proceed with confidence – albeit slowly and carefully because he is still young, green and out of shape.
I look forward to taking my new guy in the dressage ring, on trail rides, and on our family horse-camping trips for many years!
