The wind of heaven is that which blows between a horse’s ears

He knows when you’re happy
He knows when you’re comfortable
He knows when you’re confident
And he always knows when you have carrots.

Calypso he loves his carrots. He thinks Mr. Vixen is the Carrot Man. He knows he has them somewhere and follows him around hoping for a treat. Yet another miracle of this horse is how close it is bringing Mr. Vixen and I back together. He has never been a horse person; barely tolerated being around them for my sake and for as little time as possible. That has definitely changed. I haven’t seen Mr. V so relaxed and at peace in years and years. He goes with me every day and spends as much time fawning over Calypso as I do. A very unexpected, but appreciated bonus.

I thought I’d share Calypso’s new home with you. I know he probably misses his previous BFF-lady very much, but I do believe he is very much enjoying our weather compared to Vermont’s.





So I rode today. First time. MAGICAL. Tomorrow I am taking the girls for their first time on a horse too! ladybug has been asking all week when she gets to ride “Quipso” and the day is finally here!



Trotting through Thursday


‘Big Boned’ Tuesday (aka Fat Tuesday)


  1. What a beautiful place! Is that near your home?

  2. Those are mighty fine digs! That really is a wonderful thing that Mr. V. is enjoying Calypso, too!

  3. my husband’s niece in Illinois would be very jealous of you if she sees this, she really loves horses and wishes to have one. the horse has a beautiful home, so happy for you Vixen, have fun tomorrow.

  4. What the horses feel and know. Beautiful.
