The Koenraad Kronicles!! Warming Up!
Happy Halloween and I hope you are enjoying warming up! We’ve been thinking about sunny days here and as you can see my dear piggle friends, Oliver and Olivia are no exception! They’ve been basking in the Pennsylvania rays!!
Speaking of “warming up”, Mom and I have been working the lunge line and I sure do love to show her my best theatrics!! Somehow I think she’d rather I keep to task, but I am SO EXCITED about my upcoming trip to Florida and seeing all the sights that Wellington Equestrian Festival has to offer!
Friends I am FLYING!!!!!!!!
I do come in for a landing, but thinking about that great Florida sunshine just warms me up!
Mom will tell me to “TERRRROOOOOTTTT Trot! Come on Koenraad” and then I know I have to get to business. It’s more fun to FLY MOM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We had a wonderful and fantastic Open House and Halloweening party at the barn last Sunday (October 28th). So much fun and the kids and Moms and Dads had a good time. The costumes were amazing and our friend Tess Flores was there sharing her artistry that really was exceptional! Unicorns, horses and all kinds of neat paints on the faces! The kiddos were adorable!!!
Dad and Robin took a trip to Florida to do the preparations for our new barn. Setting up a new barn is exhilarating!! Robin is a master at organization, timing, budgeting, research and all the talent it takes to get the wheels in motion for our arrival. Dad tells me that he expects to be down there prior to the start of the festival so we have time to get our hooves used to the new place. This will be my first winter that will be like a summer. Wow, sunshine all year long! Envision it friends!! It might be a tough adjustment, well not so tough.. WHOA
A couple of pictures of our new place:
Robin said it was very cloudy there.
Hmmmmm blue skies and clouds? That’s a tough life for sure… not really!
If anyone is interested in boarding here in Mount Joy for the winter season, please send Robin and Dad a message!! They’re on Facebook and with 5 horses going to Florida we will have some open stalls! AND we’ll have 3 open stalls in Florida too, so if anyone is heading down to Wellington to show for the season, that’s an opportunity too!
Mom’s a Triple Performance representative now too! She’ll be their brand new Florida representative. I am so proud of Mom, she’ll be great at this!
If you need supplements for your horse, Mom can give you a lot of tips and information and how great Triple Performance has worked for us!!
New Service offered!
Laser therapy for horses! We are now offering 3 B Laser technology. For more information about this therapy please contact Dad. Dad will travel to your location to help you with this type therapy for your horse.
Laser Therapy helps to aid in the healing process for certain types of injuries that can occur with performance horses and even for horses that are pasture pets. Goodness knows with even lesson horses, hunter/jumpers, dressage horses and even horses on the trail we can all have the potential to have injuries need of repair. We can also suffer from simple wounds or inflammation too and that’s another use for laser therapy to help us feel better. There are a host of uses for laser technology to deal with ailments that horses can have.
I mentioned to Dad that it might be a good topic for his next Stable Talk video series, so stay tuned. But do remember if you want to talk about heat differentials and much more as it relates to laser therapy, contact my Dad, Dr. Jeff Walder and he’ll be happy to help you help your horse. That’s what it is all about!

Come one come all!!!
When I am warming up for my rides, or my lunges or just hanging out in the stalls with Junior, I always keep a warm heart. Warming up our hearts is a most wonderful thing. When you are feeling good and of a good mind, then you are able to take on the challenges and deal with things that can come up in life so much easier. Sometimes things may not go the way we expected and we might have to step back and think about that, but if your heart is warm and you are open to the lesson, then you can keep moving forward.
I see this all the time friends. Our rescues some of them have been through a lot but then we work our magic hooves and the light comes shining in and the transformation begins. It’s wonderful to be a part of that and share the good things that are going on and the potential for more.
Life might get a little cloudy sometimes, but if you look, you’ll warm up as you see the sunshine!!!
Stay tuned, because the very best is always yet to come!!!!!!!!
