The Idea of Order: Welcome, Spring…

And hair, and mud… my laundry thanks you.

Presented by:

Although technically spring is here — bordering on summer some days — Nevada is confused and thought it appropriate to sprinkle some hurricane winds and snow on us today; joy. Can we please fast forward to June? In any event, even with the bipolar weather, the beasts are shedding like mad, everything is melting, and my husband and I may end up killing each other over the washing machine situation…

Go Riding!

Morgane Schmidt Gabriel is a 35-year-old teacher/artist/dressage trainer/show announcer/ who still hasn’t quite decided what she wants to be when she grows up. A native Floridian, she now lives in Reno, NV, where she’s been able to confirm her suspicion that snow is utterly worthless. Though she has run the gamut of equestrian disciplines, her favorite is dressage. She was recently able to complete her USDF bronze and silver medals and is currently working on her gold. Generally speaking her life is largely ruled by Woody, a 14.2 hand beastly quarter horse, Willie, a now beastly 7-year-old Dutch gelding, and Stormy, her friend’s nearly all white paint gelding with a penchant for finding every mud hole and pee spot in existence.
