About Me

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. I am a Usui Shiki Ryoho Reiki Master Teacher who offers treatments for people, horses, dogs, cats, and other creatures great and small. I also teach Reiki classes for those interested in learning how to treat themselves, their loved ones, and even their animals! Natural Horse Lover Farm is located in Northern New York between the St. Lawrence River and Adirondack Mountains. Heaven on Earth. naturalhorseloverfarm.com

The floor is going in, lights going up

As promised more updates and photos. The weather is cold and rainy here. We are still wearing winter coats and having fires in the wood stove (at least at night). A local farm planning on an outdoor 4-H fun show had to cancel her May10th event due to bad terrain. Nonetheless, progress is happening at least on the facility side and I am really looking forward to setting up the rest of the barn.

Construction....things are moving forward!

Rick has been really busy working on the classroom/lounge space and wood is being procured for the project.  Fortunately, I was able to get the builders from Pennsylvania to deliver another load of the yellow pine (tongue and groove) that we used on the stalls.  They are a mile down the road from us on another project and I luckily called at the right time to combine an order with their other project.  Had I not done this, we'd have been stuck. (Good thing I listened to the little voice in my head that said call now, don't wait!)

I have to take more photos but imagine that the water closet has been dismantled and will be moved into the wash rack, the floor has been dug out (6-8 inches of gravel removed and re-purposed), lumber is stacked, and work is moving forward.  The electrician thinks the lighting project will be done by this weekend (I am not that optimistic but maybe he will be able to finish!)

The horses are good, needing play time, but patience is a virtue around here. I think I am starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel....but I know there will always be a project going on around here, it's our way!

Healing, the natural way

Essential oils, crystal therapy, red light, and Reiki on my horse Whiskey who has been recovering from an injury...and he loved it all! Are you ready to make a change? Let me know!

(I used YL Peppermint oil and coconut oil on his injured knee if you were wondering, and he loved it! He lifted his leg to help me apply the oils.)

Heal thyself


I went to the dentist for a cleaning a couple of weeks ago and was given a thumbs up for a healthy mouth. Starting last week, something is brewing and I was experiencing temperature sensitivity. The dentist is on vacation. I have an appointment when he returns but was told it may be just a consult and I will probably have to come back for care. Taking my holistic philosophy viewpoint, yesterday, I decided to start using my Photonic red light on the region and Young Living Thieves Essential Oil on my toothpaste. Initially I still had sensitivity, but the pain lessened a great deal in a day making the situation far more tolerable. Today, I am pain and symptom free. I plan to still see the dentist on Friday.

We have had a lot of exciting things happening at the farm. Rick has been busy installing the ceiling of the classroom/lounge (which is an extension of the loft floor too). 

Bob Watson of Watson Electric has been busy installing, lights, plugs, and doing a great job.

Here are a few photos!

Soaking up the sunshine!

I have really had two stellar days of eating and exercise. And, it seems two days of some seriously good sleep. I believe that these things are all interconnected. I am feeling very good, mind, body, and soul. I still struggle with some moments of sorrow from the passing of dad but it has gotten better. I have been playing serious catch-up at work and home as I have gotten really behind on many things since helping with his health issues that started back in the fall. And, the lights are not installed yet and no sign of the contractor at the moment. HMMM.

Today's plan is to start with a workout on my NordicTrack Incline Trainer. I have not decided "where to go" yet, LOL. Other activity plans are horse and dog time outside! My dad's girlfriend Deb is coming over for some barn R&R. The horses are a great stress reliever. She loves to groom them and clean stalls and they love it too! I had a great dream of galloping on Lola last night, maybe she is creeping into my dreams telling me something. :) The horses are doing well, Whiskey is healing from his scuffle with Lola, and Fosse is anxious to learn something new this year!

For food today, healthy but quick breakfast (shredded wheat, banana, skim milk, a little raw sugar), lunch will probably be something quick and go-to like cheese and an apple or maybe a little PB since I will be outside, and dinner is bbq chicken (vegetarian option for me, chicken for Rick and Deb), salad, spaghetti squash, and homemade sweet potato oven fries.

Drink your water today, get in some activity, and most importantly, soak up the sunshine! We have had a long hard winter but I see a glimpse of spring, finally....much needed spring.
