Withering Barn

The grey barn stands, silhouetted against the sky,

A cedar tree wraps its tired limbs around her

As if to protect her from time and age,

the old boards stacked onto one another waiting to be used,

the  tatered saddles stuffed up into the rafters hoping to one day be ridden in again,

Dust coating the floors and wool sack scale, 

Horses grazing in front slowly mowing down the grass,

Her roof is sagging with rust coloring across the the walls,

The barn inside inked with names as if saying them out loud,

Metal tools are strewn across the dark corners,

It rests in peace on the windy foggy hill,

A hundred years and still standing

Trick Training

I work at a red horse ranch. I love my job, I have since day one. I work with 4 horses Goose, Mattie, Tux and  Visten. Mattie is the Horse that I lease, she jumped in the grand prix one or twice and then was sold at a show . Tux is a horse that I have been doing pedestal work with and I rode him for the first time a few days ago. Visten is a horse who has ambiance  seizures and is sweet as a cube of sugar. Goose is a horse who has thrush and I treat his feet 2-3 times a week. With scooping poop sweeping and cleaning water troughs I’m a busy girl when it comes to the barn.With another here and there odd jobs life is interesting… My employer is my god mother and my trainer so its an odd relationship but oh well. I have to say riding and trick training is my favorite thing to do so here is a video on how to pedestal train a horse (trust me it’s easy)
