A DAY IN THE LIFE.... A typical day means your horse will be hanging out with their best friends. We believe older horses do best in small numbers and every effort is made to ensure a compatible mix of personalities. The last thing any horse needs is to be chased around by the pasture bully. Full time access to roughage via pasture or hay is ideal for keeping them happy. Contentment reduces anxiety and digestive disorders. Picture your horse standing head to tail napping under the many shade trees each pasture has to offer. Loafing sheds provide shelter when weather dictates. Feed times for supplements or meds are designed to meet the needs of each individual horse. Other aspects of your horses day can be detailed to meet the desires of each horse's owner. Individual box stalls, extra grooming, or even hand walking on the trails in the woods, can be arranged. Horse treats, carrots and apples are a part of every retiree's life here on the farm.

I remember that Friday night almost 15 years ago very clearly when My Mom arrived at the barn for her Friday night lesson. Everyone marveled at that new big black horse that was in our lesson. After the lesson was over she just had to ask about him and within minutes she had an English saddle on him and she was jumping a simple X in the middle of the arena and within 15 minutes she knew he was the one. She had never owned a horse before, even though she had ridden her entire life. She must have been waiting for the right fit and on that evening she had found it.
I watched my mom come to life with you. Most days we wondered if she loved you more than us. We joked that if you ever needed a kidney, she would give you mine. You became my Mom's favorite routine. I was jealous of the Mom and Mikey time that took place during the week, as she would say "this is her therapy and without it she would go crazy", no matter what was going on in her busy hectic life, she always found time for you! My sister and I quickly learned to love you as she did. I took my very first jump on you and you took care of me the whole way! Kristen rode you in all the fun shows and you showed her the same respect, but when it came to Mom you were a little more crazy with her, whether she was jumping, barrel racing, or your favorite-pole bending, we knew mom was safe as long as she was on you.
The 15 years that we spent by your side created some of the greatest memories, (good or bad) that all of us in our family hold dear in our hearts. When you got hurt and could no longer hide the pain from us, we were devastated. We knew that we had to give you the life that you so deserve, and return the happiness that you have given us. We know that you are living a better life at Weber's grazing, running when you can, and hanging out with your favorite buddy Zarr, that we could have ever given you. It’s still hard not being a quick drive away from you, but seeing your pictures makes it a little easier knowing that you’re being taken care of in a place that keeps you healthy.
Love you to the moon and back, Michael Michael Motorcycle.
PS: I had my daughter Katie write this because I would have gone on forever writing about my Mikey – I am truly blessed to be able to care for him the way he has cared for us and I can only hope to care for him many more years to come! I love you my Mikey more than words can say!
