Q2 Goals Recap

Oh, but first I must tell y’all that the kiddies are incredible!! But you knew that, right? We are taking FOUR ponies and their little riders to Gauteng Finals and I am so proud of them I might just explode. 😀 Best of all, my riders that didn’t make it to Finals are just as […]

Comings and Goings

So things have gone a little nuts around here, but God’s absolutely handling it. It started on Monday when poor little Nugget decided to colic out of the blue.

First Frost

I do realise that it’s well past the first quarter of the year and a goal recap is in order. It’s in the pipeline. First, exciting news: our neighbours had a dusting of frost over their vlei (marshland, to our foreign readers) this morning. Frost means dead bugs, which means the end of bug-borne diseases […]
