Wranglin' Wednesdays - Good Tidings To Y'all!

  Hey everyone! Merry Christmas, even if it is a day late! I'm really busy with last minute moving details, but I wanted to write a blog post anyway to see how everyone was doing. What did y'all get for Christmas? I got a few odds and ends, but the big thing I wanted was my father's custom-made Buffalo Saddlery saddle, which he gave to me! Now I just need to fork out the money to get a new saddle pad (American flag style, baby!), and find someone who can make me a matching breast ...

Wranglin' Wednesdays - Not Awesome, Possum

[caption id="" align="alignnone" width="300"] The culprit.[/caption]   Whoa, readers! These last few days have been a whirlwind of packing, room dust, and more packing. Moving is hard! Enough complaining, though, because this week's subject is pretty important, at least to me. EPM. Kind of run-of-the-mill, yeah? Gimme' a chance to explain how it's not.

Wranglin' Wednesdays - Go Against The Grain!

  How's it going, audience? Good? Good. Me, I'm sitting here on my living room couch, procrastinating on packing my room up until the last minute, as usual. As I sat, I thought of something: hey, wouldn't my blog readers like to read about how to catch a difficult horse in the pasture? I don't know, do you? Too late! Right about now, y'all are probably going "Katie, you don't know anything about horses, do you? All you need is some grain!", but everybody knows I like to do ...

Wranglin' Wednesdays - Sack Your Horse!

  Oh no, it's that time again! Time for Katie to tell y'all some ridiculous fact, or rant about why you should, or shouldn't, do that whatever it is with your horse. What I wanna' discuss this week is sacking out your horse. Maybe not so ridiculous after all? Sacking out, in essence, is desensitizing a horse to stimulus; loud noises, cars, gunfire, and other things. It is imperative to the safety of you, your horse, and others around you, but best of all, it's really ...

Wranglin' Wednesdays - Sour Horses

Hey readers! Hope you're having a good week, filled with plenty of horsey goodness. Today, I want to talk about why the terms "buddy sour" or "herd sour" are ridiculous words coined by the traditional equestrian world. If you're particularly attached to those phrases, now might be a good time not to be. For those of you who aren't sure what herd sour means, it's just a term to describe a horse that's anxious and distracted when he's away from his pasture mates, and the term buddy ...
