Meet the team!
I couldn’t run Looking Glass Farm all by myself….meet my partners!
Buckley is my Sr Saddle Horse, Mr. Been there Done That, and is still going strong at 28! I met him when he was 6 years old. He came to me as a runaway that “looked for things to spook at.” When my horse George injured his leg, Buckley stepped in to fill his shoes so I could completely my level 3 in Parelli. We did it in less than 4 months together. Buckley and I went on tour with Parelli for years, he has helped me with 100s of clinics, and he still puts in 3-4 days a week by either ponying and training the youngsters or giving lessons.
Maggie is my 28 year old Swedish Warmblood mare that also came to me as a problem child at 2. When in doubt, she would rear and strike. She is the only horse that I ever met that sat down so she did not have to go into the trailer. Needless to say, she has taught me so much! Maggie LOVES to jump online, liberty, stadium and cross country.
Ellie May is my 8 year old Irish Jack Russell. She is the official greeter at the farm.
She still has some big shoes to fill after the passing of Scout, my Jack Russell that was infamous and lived with me for almost 10 years. Ellie May is the antithesis of Scout. She is always happy, sort of listens, loves everyone, and has zero kill drive. Scout, on the other hand, was a serial killer who intentionally did not listen. I spent many hours talking Scout of trouble after she killed something she wasn’t supposed to. She was my constant companion- she only had eyes for me.
Queso is a pot bellied pig that defected from the neighboring farm and took asylum at Looking Glass Farm two years ago.
Queso’s main role at the farm is to help training horses get used to fat, slow moving creatures (which in general, horses hate!)
On her off time she enjoys basking in the shade with Patriot and playing in puddles.
Fluffy and Omega
Fluffy and Omega are my two cats that were supposed to live in the barn and kill mice. Fluffy lasted six months. Omega 24 hours. They live in the house now and are completely useless.
