Welcome to My Side of the Fence

Holiday 2018

This year has been a whirlwind; hard to believe the holidays are already upon us. Taking care of the horses can be hectic and there is always work to be done - manure to pick up, feedings, medical care - but what makes it all worth it are the moments of success and joy we are witness to. Tango and Marley came in so thin and depressed, and now they have gained more weight and look healthy. It is wonderful to watch them gallop full out from one end of their field to the other. They play with the other horses over the fence, happy to be alive and thriving. Their eyes are bright and shiny, and they look forward to every meal.

My motherís love of horses from a very young age came from her father, my grandfather, Max Palmer, and is what led me to eventually start a horse rescue ...Read more ...

Spring 2018

One of the most beautiful sights you could imagine is the farm after a snowfall. The farm is still, the sun glistens off the new fallen snow, and we take in the beauty of mother nature. Then reality hits Ė there is a lot of work to get done and starting to feed breakfast is a priority! Then thereís snow plowing and shoveling to be done just to reach the horses after some storms. For example, this last storm, just after late night feeding, Bruce was out plowing the drive way and making paths to get to the horses easily until after midnight, and his morning alarm goes off at 4 am ...

Christmas 2002 - The Definitive My Side of the Fence

'Ok, so they arenít ridable anymore.' It never ceases to amaze me how many people get rid of a horse that has been good to them for many years because they canít ride them. It just astounds me that people who have had the same horse for a long time, 10-20 years, just get rid of them like they were never a part of the family. Read More ....
