This weblog is a personal journal– and journey– with lots of pictures about pets and art: paintings and portraits of horses and pets, some philosophy of art, virtual painting, photography, the art of creating a website.



Because I’m a lifelong horselover and keep horses too, you’ll find mostly horse stuff here– natural horse care and management, basic training for young horses, ongoing experiments and practices in barefoot hoofcare, horse health, riding and carriage driving.

Here also are some family things, bits about our young English setter Peaches, our cats, and living the good life in New Hampshire. Refer to our Topic Categories for art, horses, pets, and website building.

Extended family as of December 06.
