Meet my very 1st horse, Lazarus.
I couldn't wait for Santa anymore or ask one more time for a pony for my bday (after age 30 it got embarrassing). I took matters in my own hands and I finally decided to pick a pony that needed a new home. Laz found me as I contemplated with this idea. He was sweet yet very sassy, fresh off the track, Thoroughbred (OTTB).

While I was away...

So, this past week I was away in Chicago for work.  It was the Kitchen and Bath industry show and it's always an amazing event to attend.  As a designer, I get to see 'first look' on all new things for the kitchen/bath world.  It was a great show but I did miss my brown man.  Luckily, I never worry about him while I'm gone.  A huge perk of being at a small private facility and being friends with the BO's who take amazing care of the horses.
While I was gone, the BO kindly sent some fun pictures so I could sleep easy.

She took Laz out in the arena for a hand walking and some turnout time.  He has been permitted to nibble on the grassy arena areas for about 15-20 minutes which he loves.

During my stay in Chicago, we stayed with my family in the home I grew up in. 
It's always nice going home, and they are getting it ready to finally sell after 37 years of owning it.  With that, I took home a few boxes of my Breyer horses, Barbie horses and other horse toys, etc that I had collected.  I also seem to have horse books in the hundreds from over the years.  Many of you know of this website "Horse and Wildlife Gifts" and they carry gifts and decor items.  I'm thinking of purchasing this lovely bookend for my office to display the many years of collected books that I now am transferring to my home.  The pages are all a bit tattered and well read over, and some of the books seem ancient, lol, but will look so nice displayed properly.
I'll be seeing my Laz man tomorrow and can't wait!


  1. I have soooooooooo many books my bookshelf has died.

  2. I fully plan on taking back all my Breyers and Grand Champions as well. Maybe even setting their barns. You know, just to see if I have all the pieces...

  3. Oh that sounds so fun! There comes a time in our lives that we can pull out our horsey childhood toys and display them without looking like nerds. Right? No? Oops, oh well. Lol! Hope you had a great trip. Looks like Laz did just fine without you - small barns are the best, I agree!

  4. So glad that Laz had fun and was kept comfortable. You are at the perfect barn. I love that you got to stay in your childhood home. I am sorry that they are selling it. I have a special fondness for childhood homes. (Insert my love of Howards End here.)
    Laz sure looks happy rolling in his sand!
