Studio DTQ's Blog

Studio DTQ blogged about this little owl! She's got a great blog with lots of unique, cool items. Some would make great Xmas gifts! I was thinking about these little guys the other day, I have an idea in my head for a feathered goddess with some bird charms. Maybe she'll have a raven and a little owl!

Riding Ring

In all the years we've had horses, I taught full time, we've never had our own riding ring. WELL that has changed. We now have a small sand riding ring and an area where a round pen will go in. Eventually we'll have lights too! It makes Indy's daily re hab sessions a lot easier! It's easy to harrow it with our quad, all though the quad seems to be on it's last legs!

Morrocan Moonlight

Morrocan Moonlight I am often drawn to the colors and textures in rocks, I find myself often looking down a lot as I walk. This bead reminds me of a small forest pebble, waiting for something special to happen. Lots of earth tones, lightly etched.

On my trip to turkey this summer we flew into Ankara airport. I expected it to me a lot bigger than it was, I was hoping to find some more of the blue bowls I had fallen in love with. The shield pattern on the one side of this bead for some reason reminds me of a local girl we met while waiting in the airport. She was heading to north america for a wedding, wearing a scarf with typical Turkish style patterns in it.

While I was in Turkey this summer I fell in love with the ceramic bowls that were in the markets everywhere. My favorites where the ones with many shades of blue. This bead reminds me of the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul. Pinar a friend who lives in Istanbul showed us around, very sweet of her. With her guidance we got to see the sights and sounds of a lovely market.

Indy's rehab is going well

Indy is doing well and is on to his rehab. He's got to be hand walked, which did NOT go well the first few days. He had a lot of energy! He's up to being lunged now, lots of brisk walk and then a little bit of quiet trotting. His lungs are definitely not normal, but we are hoping if we work him lightly and keep and eye on things we can slowly improve his lung function. I have to admit it's not very much fun hand walking and lunging so much!
