Secrets and Lies at Firefly Farm

I can’t keep it a secret any longer.

Bribery, Blackmail, Secret Photographs–none of these were necessary to make me cave. My name is Savannah. I’m a whistle blower who can’t actually blow a whistle. Instead, I’m going to let you in on a massive secret.

Dusty:

Is ACTUALLY the 90’s Rocker known as Diesel Dust! Here he is, attempting to hide from the paparazzi.

Once I figured this out, he attempted to conceal himself behind a cool set of shades–but I saw right through this flimsy disguise.

He tried to sneak out at dusk, but once he’d been discovered, Diesel Dust (Dusty) was quickly surrounded by fans eager to get his hoofprint.

Though rumors abound, this gorgeous stud has been known to canoodle with a particularly leggy brunette. One anonymous source has identified her as “Lexi,” though this hasn’t been confirmed.

Though part of a “big hair” group of the ’90’s, Diesel Dust has since blown his money on ladies and expensive hoof treatments. Furthermore, his lengthy addiction to tail-growth hormone has been well documented.

“He’s a love ’em and leave ’em kind of guy,” Honey Bear told me on a recent morning, sobbing her eyes out as she came to terms with the fact that the tall, dark, handsome stud would never call her ‘Mrs. Dust.’ “I’d pictured us in a big stable together, surrounded by a white picket fence. Just the two of us and Diesel Dust junior.”

One recent incident under active investigation is that Diesel Dust (Dusty) is running an underground mud-wrestling ring behind the barn. Photos confirming this report remain inconclusive.

It is to be noted that there are many involved in this scam. Not only are most of those living here aware of what’s going on, some are sentries for these activities. It is believed that this one gives “Tips” about infiltration and snitches.

Though it was assumed at the beginning of my investigation that these…animals…were innocent until proven guilty, it can be assumed that nobody’s clean. Everyone I’ve discussed this with has said that Dusty has spies everywhere, and knows if someone isn’t holding up their end of the bargain. They hide in plain sight, and tend to be easily overlooked.

Worst of all, his assassins have no problem “taking people out.” They even keep waterproof “blankets” nearby to wrap you in, should they need to keep the area clean.

There are acres and acres of land behind the pastures where nobody would ever hear a whinny.

This freshly dug “garden” was “created” after a recent “transaction” between Tip and her boss:

Innocent pile of freshly turned earth, or something more sinister? You decide.

Beware next time you’re on your way to Firefly Farm. You may find yourself in the middle of Espionage, Treason, and Blackmail–or at least up to your eyeballs in manure.

Happy April Fool’s Day!

Bear Back

Tonight, I had the best ride on Honey. I’d like to say she’s a pony, but that’s only the case for so long. Tonight I measured her at 14.1 hands high, almost 14.2–the cutoff for becoming a horse. Aww. The other questionable aspect of Honey is her hair. She is incredibly wooly, round and furry, adorable and cuddly–she reminds me of a Winnie the Pooh bear, so I call her “Honey Bear.” She’s become even more furry of late. I’ve kept her blankets off for the most part, so her hair has increased exponentially.

As I was finishing my ride, my lesson student arrived. She was shocked about the way I was riding. Not because I was doing something crazy, but because I was bareback. Bareback. Apparently at previous barns this was not a usual occurance. I was surprised at her surprise. It’s second nature to me to ride bareback, so I just climb aboard whenever I feel like it. Melody, and (when I owned her) Savannah were used to me climbing aboard with or without a saddle. Sometimes we’d go bareback, sometimes sidesaddle, sometimes western, dressage, or close-contact jumping. My horses never knew what to expect, and I prefer it that way. I think versatility is the ultimate gift you can give your horse. There are so many times that dressage moves can be useful in regular life. Other times western skills are important. I can ride Melody with a single rein, since she knows how to western and direct rein both.

In any case, I had a fantastic ride on Honey, and I’m thrilled with how far we’ve come. She’s easily giving in to the bit with the slightest of movements, and she’s chewing and licking constantly throughout our ride. She’s half-passing and side passing like a champ, and now we’ve gotten to the point that it’s not hard to get her to reverse on the haunches and stop on a dime. She’s so much fun. I’m thrilled with her.
