This blog is all about horses, with the occasional foray into tall cat and dog tales. I have five horses (not quite sure how that happened… I only meant to have ONE!). All kept here at home. Plus a couple of friends’ horses. The eponymous Sky King is pretty much the main guy around here. Although he doesn’t compete any more due to undiagnosed soundness issues, he’s still my horse of a lifetime.
I ride competitively in ride n tie, ctr, set speed, and endurance (all distance riding sports). I’m an accredited lay veterinary judge, and the webmaster for the Ontario Competitive Trail Riding Association.
I work at a Thoroughbred farm just down the road. Mostly taking care of broodmares and babies. Lovely job. The babies are endlessly entertaining. Also do a lot of re-homing of both Standardbreds and Thoroughbreds as they come off the track.
