happynewyearJanuary 3, 2013 – Happy New Year to everyone! We hope you had a wonderful holiday season and that the coming year far exceeds your expectations (I know that is what I am hoping for…LOL). Lots of ups and downs last year… am hoping that 2013 is nothing but ups (LOL… does that sound weird?). Read the rest of this entry »

A sad few months…

Posted by: ShadyRidgein Diary Updates

November 19, 2012 – Well, it has been a rough couple of months and I haven’t felt like updating my blog let alone doing much else. But, life goes on and I am slowly getting back into the swing of things. This blog update is not going to be flashy or filled with pictures of our horses and such but rather a synopsis of the last few months and where we go from here. I just needed to write this out one more time and hope it will help me find some type of closure. (Next post should be a little more uplifting… I hope :-)) Read the rest of this entry »

October 1, 2012 – As many of you know, my father is currently battling bladder cancer and unfortunately, it is not going well. Please help our family by donating to the Pink Hair Dare campaign in support of my dad, Al Gay. Click this image to make a donation…

RIP my beloved Shadow

September 19, 2012 – Today is one of the hardest days of my life. Today I said good-bye to my beloved Shadow… the best dog in the world. Read the rest of this entry »

September 2, 2012 – I can’t believe that it has been so long since I’ve written a post on here. Life has been really busy (yup… that’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it :-)). So, this post will be a synopsis of what has been happening around our farm and in our horsey lives since I posted last. Read the rest of this entry »

February 26, 2012 – Well… it has been a pretty busy month around the farm and with business. So busy, in fact, that I haven’t had much quiet time to just sit and do nothing (or update my blog). I like being busy, I really do, but some days I would give anything to just sit and veg. I guess the days when I have nothing but time will come soon enough so I guess I should be grateful that my life is so full now. Read the rest of this entry »

Weird weather; awesome camera :-)

Ripples4January 22, 2012 – Ok… what is up with the weather in southern Ontario? This is the strangest winter we have had in a long time. Very little snow (more rain than snow so far); only a couple of cold, cold days; and too much ice! The poor horses are walking very cautiously… and so are we. 🙂 Read the rest of this entry »

A long overdue update from the farm

Posted by: ShadyRidgein Diary Updates

shadyridge_logo-smDecember 18, 2011 – So… I just realized that it has been 2 months since I posted an update about our farm and horse life. I’ve posted about web designs I have done and other information but I can’t believe I haven’t posted an update! Oh wait… yes I can… life has been super busy. Everything from work to family to horses, life is just crazy… but lovin’ (almost) every minute of it. And, with so little time for extras, unfortunately my blog updates and my photography have had to take a back seat. I won’t make any promises that my tardiness will be suddenly rectified and the posts will start coming again on a regular basis but I do promise to “think about” posting more often and then being hard on myself when it doesn’t happen. 🙂 Read the rest of this entry »

DSCN2332-smOctober 8, 2011 – Wow… I can’t believe how long it has been since I have done an update on what has been happening around here. Things have been so busy it is hard to find the time to jot down what has been going on. I’ve been trying to think of some way that I can do regular updates that don’t take up too much time but alas, I can’t think of how to do it so if you have any suggestions, I am open to your thoughts.

DSCN4480-sm3August 22, 2011 – You would think I live the busy life of a horse mom or something by the lack of “ramblings” I have posted here. Oh ya… that’s right… I am a busy horse mom… not to mention entrepreneur, wife, mother and Jill of all trades. And this summer seems to be busier than any other summer that I can remember.
