I can be described as lover of life, an animal lover, and lover of education. I am constantly striving for knowledge and learning opportunities. I've been around horses my entire life. I enjoy working with horses and their human partners through natural horsemanship philosophies, natural balance bare foot hoof care, reiki, red-light therapy, essential oils, aromatherapy, crystal healing, chromotherapy, flower essences, and more.

How do you deal with insects in the North Country?

This is how you deal with insects in the North Country...These are my horses, Fosse and Whiskey. They may look "interesting" but they are not being bitten or sunburned!

We have black flies and mosquitoes, deer flies, etc. etc. This year, I took the plunge and bought my guys insect outfits! I know, nuts, right? I don't think so because they've been standing in the barn instead of out eating the beautiful grass---and they have the option of free roaming so, they are making the choice. Plus, my husband actually said to me, "maybe you better get those fly things you were talking about."

Thank you to WeatherBeeta, Cashel, and Horse Sense - great products!
