Okay....so its been...A YEAR...I guess its time to catch up! :D

The big news so far is that the little blue barn in under NEW MANAGEMENT! I'm very excited with the plans for improvments!  One of those plans is to have a dedicated OUTDOOR RIDING AREA or maybe even TWO!

Management is also looking at how to reconfigure our paddocks to give us the most "bang for our buck" so to say.  Smaller herds and rotating paddocks is the goal!

I will have dates for SUMMER CAMP ou...

Oh my...where HAS the time gone?

I admit...I am not very good at this blogging business. :/  Shall we catch up?

2012 was a very busy year.  We have settled into the "new" location and as everything in life it continues to be a work in progress with repairs and updates.

Summer 2012 was quite busy with the Daydream Equestrian Show Team at a horse show every other weekend.  We really focused on showing on the Chicago Hunter/Jumper Circuit and spent the summer bet...

Well we have moved into our new facility and the horses have settled in nicely!

 

We have spent the better part of the month cleaning up the barn, building a tack room for students (which will double as a temporary tack room for boarders), tearing down broken stalls (soon to be replaced), etc etc etc...seems like the work is never done :D and I am LOVING every minute of it!

 

I want to thank everyone that came by the OPEN HOUSE on July 11th.  It was...

I am so excited I can't even stand it!!

 

Today, after 25 years of dreaming...I signed the lease on a HORSE PROPERTY of my own!  I am so excited to be moving out on my own and terrified at the same time!  I sort of feel the way I did when I left for college.

 

I'm excited at this new journey in my life.  I am filled with so many hopes and thoughts of what life will be like moving forward.  I cannot wait to make new friends and discover tal...

Just when it looks like Spring is over and Summer is ready to come on full swing...we first have to suffer Monsoon Season!  While all this rain is GREAT for the grass and flowers...its starting to wreck havoc on the pastures on our turn-out schedule!!!

 

The poor horses have spent way too much time indoors due to the rain!  We are lucky to have two nice non-grass paddocks...unfortunately one is dirt (aka mud) and the other is limestone...which is GREAT! except that ...

SEASONS GREETINGS!!!

 

December brings us Holiday Cheer and the end of the year!

 

Along with everyone else, I am reminising on 2009 and have decided that despite the ups n downs, 2009 has been a HUGE year for me!

 

Most significantly is the start of Daydream Equestrian Center.  I am so pleased with how things are coming together and look forward to the upcoming year. 

 

Also, I can't not mention the "big day"....C...

Its NOVEMBER!!!! 

 

November is one of my favorite months.  I start the month with my birthday which is always fun!  And its the month of THANKSGIVING!!!  While Christmas remains my most favorite holiday I LOVE Thanksgiving because we celebrate all that is good in our lives...food, family, the wonderful things that have happened throughout the year.

 

This Thanksgiving I feel especially thankful. It goes without saying that I am thankful ...
