2015-12-15: Hi! You're probably here because you did a Google search for 'plus sized horseback riders' or you saw my content quoted elsewhere. There are a couple of things I'd like you to know.

I am still here! But I am living away from my horses and not riding often. I could tell you a lie and say that I am, but I have always endeavored to give you the truth here. As a result, I'm not feeling terribly motivated to write blog posts and I feel out of touch with the community.

I'd love for you to stay a while and look back through the archives. Visit the links listed below. We still have an active forum community and I post on the Facebook page from time to time.

I have tentative plans to try to get more involved in the horse world in 2016, and I will absolutely share whatever that adventure becomes with you, so keep checking back!

I can't keep my excitement in a second longer!

I wasn't going to say anything because I know how this board can be but I came home to this from Arizona and have been way too excited not to share!

The filly is a week old today and I decided to name her Fiona. Bronwyn foaled out really easily - not too complicated since I used Rex as the stallion - he's a big boy but Bronwyn still has some major booty on him!

I was really hoping for a buckskin filly... Going to try her again on her foal heat to see if I can get what I want. This filly will be up on the local classifieds pretty soon. She is nice and will be a great athletic little mare when she grows up but I am really holding out for the buckskin and white filly... it'll look like a gypsy vanner, except taller and more athletic, I think. :)

I know Bronwyn hasn't really shown much talent for anything yet but I really think I am the one holding her back - she has a lot of potential and I think the foal could be quite athletic and talented! I also know how Bronwyn lost her foal back before I got her and thought she might like the chance to raise a couple and let her great mothering instincts shine through.

In the meantime, I am excited... it has been a few years since we have had a foal out here and I totally have missed little fuzzy noses! She is sooooo inquisitive and friendly, I am amazed that a mare as squirrely and distrustful as Bronwyn can be could produce something so cute and personable!


  1. I am shocked, shocked! that no one has commented on this amazing news!

  2. Woah I didn't know Bronwyn was even prego! Congrats, she's beautiful!

    This might help you see your odds of getting a buckskin paint.

  3. Oops It didn't show up, go to
    Horsetesting.com, click on equine testing, and then coat color calculator.

  4. ROFL.

    April Fool's eh?

  5. Wow I didnt even know she was bred!

  6. Haha Anonymous, she wasn't! It was an April Fools! :)
