Horse Capital of the World

In the short time being in Ocala, I have seen some beautiful country… Hills… big rolling hills with green pastures and tall live oaks dotting the landscape. The thoroughbred horse farms are every where you turn. Last year at the Derby 17 horses came from Ocala breeding and training programs. I am most impressed to see farms with their own race tracks with all the equipment to spare. Spring has arrived and so has the babies… cute and adorable out grazing with Mum and other mares with their babies. The future winners with no care in the world other than mother’s milk, naps and play time.

The Greenway, an interconnection of preserved land for horse back riding, pedal bikes and walkers. You can ride for miles starting at Ross Prairie  to Santos, you can get on or off at any of the Trail Heads. Each park has it own landscape from Christmas tree forest to open meadows where you can come across deer, turkey, coyotes and maybe a bear. This past winter the song birds from the north kept the trails alive with natures radio…

Blessed in Sunny Florida with the horses Grand Amelia, Picabo and Mini Me. A peaceful sight to see them grazing and napping in their pastures under the gorgeous oak trees. Being in the Horse Capital of the World I have at my fingertips some amazing resources. I have found an Bio- Mechanical Riding Instructor, I can say its really works. Grand Amelia and I are busy learning and prepping for the local dressage schooling show. I call my three classes the vegetable soup group ( Introduction A, B, and C). Really basic walk and trot with come canter.

How am I doing so far?horse show champion ribbons

What will I do in the summer when the heat comes… write the third book and blog..

Stay tuned, I am glad to be back…

Have a blessed day : ) M

Fresh Starts for Us

Has been a long time since I blogged. So What has Martha been up to?
We recently retired and moved to Ocala Florida. We brought with us our 3 horses, llama, four cats and our Kayaking Dog. This Award Winning Author is learning dressage and started Horse showing. Doing well I might add. Chili the Llama and Martha joined the local llama group, she is taking on shearing and fleece care, llama walks with other llama owners, for once kissed by a llama you never go back…. lol
Since our unpacking days are over… well sought of… we still need to hang pictures in the TV Room…..
Does Martha still believe in her books… Absolutely FIRST helping VOCAL a 501c3 !
To encourage pet adoption, for all rescue animals they need a forever home. Books were Provided Darby’s Story and Bangle Bears for their Silent Auction… and the fun of attending . We have supported a great cause in our new local Community… VOCAL The 2018 FurBall was a HUGE Success VOCAL’s third annual FurBall on February 10, 2018 was our best FurBall yet!  It was wonderful to see so many members of our community supporting change for homeless animals in our community.   The theme of this year’s FurBall was “Love is a Four Legged Word,” and we surely felt the love for VOCAL’s mission.  With help from our emcee, Evan Hecht and our amazing sponsors, including Dr. Maggie Bell and Darcy Bird, our presenting sponsors, we raised well above our goal of $105,000 with a whopping $140,000 raised for our clinic!
Whose going to be next………

Happy National I Love my Dog and Pets Every Day…. Day

My Kayaking Dog

My Kayaking Dog

Waking each day is a good day for my Kayaking Dog and I. We head up to the barns to check on the goats and llamas, then to the horses. We embrace the days that turn into seasons, the acorns are falling and the morning have a nice chill in the air. By noon it will hotter than you know what…..

Embrace the day, be thankful and appreciate those smiles with your best my kayaking dog!

Seeking Property to Create an Animal Rescue…..

Have you ever thought about having your own animal rescue place? A place that is quiet and beautiful from the back deck of a MOVE IN READY house, with 10 stall barn with covered arena. 10 acres of pastures with tall oak trees and soft rolling hills?

Over the years I have rescued pregnant mares, goats and sheep. Now it’s your turn to enjoy the experience of saving lives.

A cherish experience of almost fifteen years, and incredible influence of my writing to share the rewards of rescuing animals.

“One of the best part of waking to an early spring morning is to discover a set of new-born lambs. The air is sweet and the gentle loving of the Ewe toward her babies is a breath-taking experience. Between  the kids and the family dog wooing and yawing over the magical moment of life.”

Here is your opportunity in Northern California, ten-acre farm with clean horse barn and paddocks, vintage old barn for small animals and hay. The farmhouse is remodeled. Waiting for a family to come and enjoy the life of riding ponies and raising your own fresh eggs.

Take a “O/O” and watch how your life can take place in the video tour.  Move In Ready 10 Acre Farm in Northern California
