Our weatCan that

It's May Already......Can that really be?


Our weather has been so darn weird this year, it has been cold and rainy far longer then normal, but we are still under in the amount of rain we need.  The Spring Equinox and Easter have passed by, now it is Mother's Day, soon Memorial Day and the kick off to summer around here, and kids getting out of school!  All I can say is WOW time is flying this year as always, it just seems to fly faster some how, and go by more quickly!  I thought life would be easier and less complicated with computers and smart phones at our finger tips but it seems that is not the case at all and they seem to cause us more work and worry!


So this news letter is dedicated to Mom's be it our real Mom, Horse Mom's and people who play the role of Mom ------ and our Mare's!

Our Mom's sure play an important role in our lives, they teach us how to care, how to love, how to nuture and so much more.  As I get older I find myself doing some of the same things my Mom did that bugged me - funny how that happens....I would give almost anything to see my Mom one more time, to have a cup of tea with her, to take one of our trips to TJ Maxx shopping, to go to Ashland, Or to all the little shops especially Paddington Station (our favorite)to just sit and chat about the day, about what has been going on, about my kids, her grand-kids that she loved so so much, and take a walk with the dogs, take her to go feed the horses with me as she always loved that, and feeding carrots too!


Treasure your Mom's if you still have them around, forgive them their foibles and their weaknesses, they did the best they could with the tools given to them.  They loved us no matter what, kissed our scraped knees, gave us a hug when we needed it and tried to help us understand how to navigate life.


My Mom was one of those special ones, she was my best friend and confidant, and no matter what she was there for me and to cheer me on.


My Mom changed worlds going on 6 years ago unexpectedly and my life has never been the same without her. 


So love them while you have them on the planet, give them an extra hug on Mother's Day and tell your Mom you love her, because you never know!


For Mother's Day I alway treat Echo to a "salon treatment day " with massage and photonic light, carrots and apples and she loves it, she was/is mom to Destinee Rose and by default to Cheyanne Rose too and continues to parent both!


And it doesn't matter if she is still here with you or in heaven, just like in the movie Ghost, they take the love with them when they go.....







There are certain people in my life I proudly call "friend" and Melanie is one of them she is someone I am proud to know and making a difference in the life of some horses, dogs and cats, along with a pig or two.... her rescue is amazing, and she writes wonderful books which would be great Mother's Day gifts for your horse or dog loving Mom!  I love paying it forward to friends and people I know who have great products!  I also include Lisa Ross-Williams in that below, and Ferrell Hollow Farms Gifts!~

By Dr. Becker  (Although this article is geared to dogs, horses benefit so much from regular chiropractic! jl)

Many pet owners don't think about animal chiropractic when their beloved dog or cat is injured, in pain, or becomes ill.  (Or for their horses either for that matter)


And that's really unfortunate, because often a visit to a small animal chiropractor can put your pet on the road to recovery much more quickly and safely than other alternatives.


Chiropractic adjustments can often take the place of surgery.

They can reduce or eliminate the need for veterinary drugs that carry side effects.


They can also address chronic health problems that don't get better or keep coming back.

Chiropractic Adjustments for Pets

A chiropractic adjustment or manipulation is a specific impulse directed at a joint to reduce fixation and re-establish normal movement.


Adjustments clear the way for the body to return to a state of balance without the interference of a subluxation, which is a vertebral lesion.


Adjustments are done to the joints of the spine and also the extremities.


Chiropractic can treat animals with back, neck, leg and tail pain; muscle spasms; nerve problems; traumatic injuries; difficulty chewing, TMJ or jaw problems; and stiffness from arthritis.

It can also alleviate some bowel, bladder and other internal medicine conditions.


And for healthy animals, it can maintain the integrity of the joints and spine.


(We here in our area of San Diego County are fortunate to have one of the best animals chiropractors, Dr Cheryl Ricketts-Mulvey... my horses are adjusted monthly and the dogs a couple times per year! She also goes to Riverside Co and her info is listed on our web site, in the Contact Us section - she is also a human chriopractor and Cheryl shares her birthday with Echo and I so we are kindred spirits on the journey! jl)






In loving memory of my Mom, My Granny Millett (98.5 years), my Grandma Mac, Great Grandma Gamble (99 years), Auntie Ena, and Great Auntie May ( 98.5  years of living - who learned to ride a Harley at 90 years young, and flew over to England to see her homland one more time at age 95!)  for all the Mother's Days we celebrated together, and for all of you helping me to become the person I am today, Thank You, I love you and miss you all!





May 2nd is a special day in our house hold, we have two birthdays to celebrate, Destinee Rose will be 10 yeras old and Tucker will be 3!   They have so enriched our lives and Tucker just bounds through the day with endless energy with Tess, and Destinee has been my teacher and has been such a wonderful and brave little horse!  It is also my brother John's birthday on May 7th!
