“Horse stories that touch our hearts”
There’s an incredible connection that can happen between a man/ women and a horse. The old saying “The outside of a horse is good for the inside of a man” rings true.
I’ve watched horse shows as well as ridden myself in shows to know the statement is true. There’s something special when we connect. As we learn to work with them we discover how we can work to create a better connection.
A few years ago, I had the opportunity to see one great trainer, Monty Roberts, present at an event. It’s was amazing to see him work with the horses there and witness the changes with the horse and the rider/owners. It solidified for me that with patience and an open mind we can find the way to connect in the right manner.
Even yesterday, Big Brown’s jockey made comments that he sensed that the horse may have been off and “took care of him”. Big Brown won the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness Stakes. Yet he didn’t make history and become another “Triple Crown Winner”. But that didn’t matter as much as taking care of Big Brown.
Throughout history there has been an amazing connection with horses and people. To read or watch those stories that touch our hearts brings out the best in ourselves.
I’ve selected a number of horse stories, books and movies, at my site that bring the connection between man/women and horses together in wonderful ways.

“Warming up to changes”
I’ve been able to sit outside and watch the kids enjoying their new swing set (thanks to family), and the warmer weather. The purple and white irises in our garden have now bloomed and the large tree in our yard gives us ample shade since the leaves have opened.
I’ve taken on a few new things too in my business.
I bought an entrepreneurial book, “The Way of the Accidental Entrepreneur”, and signed up with the coaching group to help me brainstorm, and get clear on the things in my business that need clarification and feedback.
I recently revamped my site too. I changed what I wasn’t happy with and what didn’t seem to be working and placed what I wanted to focus on more to the forefront.
Now that I’ve done that work, I would love to have you explore my updated site and tell me what you think.

“Midnight Race” is a lithograph I did when I was at Southeastern Massachusetts University. I learned a couple of techniques used to make lithographs in the Lithography course I took. I wished to capture the beauty and power in horses, yet I didn’t want it so realistic. I experimented and came up with this image. Later, I entered it in “The Okterfest” of the Taunton Art Association. I received Second Place. Another day I met the artist who was one of the judges at that show. She was excited to meet me and told me she thought the image was real good. With that I entered it with only some hope, of course, into the juried show at “The Harborfest” in Cohasett. Much to my surprise and joy, I received notice the image got into the juried exhibit and received an Honorable Mention award. It was a hightlight in my art career.
Available in prints $65.
