Ode to Wiyaka’ska

 Yes, the winds of change are gently blowing - they tell me it is time to lay to rest that which is past and walk through some open doors yet to be seen.  It is time to say goodbye to Wiyaka’ska. Sade and I took a short walk and finally I could set Wiyaka’ska free. I had to listen deep inside, for blaming anything in…

Saving My Arabians’ Eye

September 10th marks two weeks to the date, I watched my beautiful Arabian left eye go blind. The flies were relentless this year; even strong fly repellant could not deter these pests. Two weeks ago in the early afternoon, at first glance, I knew KlassicAmir was in poor condition as he placed his elegant rounded neck to rest on my shoulder.


KlassicAmir is a very proud graceful Arabian, and for him to succumb to lowering and resting his head, meant he was severely…

Keeping an eye on your Dog: leash law

Losing your dog or worse someone's dog that you are in care of, sinful, heartbreaking and most times unnecessary. Know your dogs behavior. Know the person's dog who you have put in charge of - behavior. Watch all dogs at all times, even in the dog park. It is one of the best places to have fun, let your dog be a dog and meet great people. Unfortunately, at a cost.

Sad stories such as Jager are constant reminders; they tug at our hearts, make us tear up with hopes someday he is found…

AT Ortiz Dog Park is a couple stranded and needs car mechanical help: if you have some tools, they are stranded from Louisiana and desperate getting their Maroon Van fix.

I am assuming "Arabs" means horses...the only horse person I know is Cindy Roper. Sorry.

I apologize, I thought Elys was your last name.  I'll just leave names out of it to make it easier.  And my name is JulieL, not Julie.  jk.

Hi Michele.  I've seen progress for the better overall but sometimes it does seem slow, and still not fair to all breeds. And I believe I did spell your name correctly below?  One "L" correct?  Sorry if I got it wrong. Take Care.

Hi Michele. I remember seeing a comment in the New Mexican last year saying people should be required to prove they are worthy pet owners and fill out an application when they register their pets - which most people don't do anyway - and somehow Animal Services would need to do home checks or something they obviously have no time to do now. But maybe if the pet over population problem ever gets under control and shelters aren't bursting at the seams and having to reduce adoption fees to make space for the next 100, there will be more strict screening and crack downs on backyard breeders and unaltered animals. But not sure if I'll ever see that in my lifetime. But things are slowly turning for the better in places like Denver where SN has been quite successful and sometimes their shelters are < 50% full. Santa Fe some day? So glad to hear the famale has been spayed.

They're Icelandics. A gaited breed. Both originally from Iceland. Mine are not the highest quality , but wonderful nonetheless. I took Sokki and another Icey I had, Gymir, on an attempted ride across the US in 2001. Went with another woman who had mules. My horses did just as well as her mules. I packed one and rode the other, alternating every other day. Was on the road for 4 months when my partner fell off her mule and broke her pelvis. I decided to pack it in and come on home. But what an adventure!

Jager isn't mine, but if you check out Stacy Dunning, he is her dog.
Thanks for the nice thoughts about ADW. It is a special organization and I'm really happy to be associated with them.
Thanks for the welcome...

Seems like you didn't get my request to add you, but it worked out anyway. We are now added in both directions, I assume
