​​​First off, I want to thank you for taking the time to visit my site.


I have been around horses since I was very young and have ridden for most of my life.  I have always had a love for animals and this carried over into my adult life.  I own three wonderful horses, 2 of which I have rescued from slaughter (see below for their individual stories), 2 cats and 2 dogs (that I have rescued). 


I created Barn Nanny because as a horse owner I have experienced the need to have a back up that is caring and knowledgeable.  ​Also, have friends that expressed needs as animal owners.  These instances created a moment of pause for me and I figured that if my friends and I were experiencing these circumstances, I am sure other animal owners were also.

Please feel free to email me with any questions that you may have.


Thank you and Happy Riding!

Just a bit about my hooved Fur Babies





Angel is my 16 yr old bay Morab mare that was a barrel racer in her past life before I purchased her May 2014.  She's a very sweet, intelligent girl that keeps me on my toes!  She has settled in quite nicely & in the past she has helped young people learn lessons in providing basic care & basic riding.


I realized quickly that she wasn't terribly happy being by herself and along came Beau...








Beau is a 16 hand, 16 yr old flea bitten Percheron gelding that I purchased sight unseen off a Facebook rescue page.  This poor boy was put through 2 slaughter auctions & had a fast approaching timeline to go back to the slaughter lot.  His photo captured my heart & although it has been a challenging road with trust, health & lameness issues, I wouldn't change a thing.  This boy is my jokester, is amazingly smart, sensitive & now that I have work through his trust issues, he is a very sweet & loving boy! 








On October 2016 Samson (18 hand 10 yr old Percheron gelding) stole my heart when I was at an auction to pick up another horse that ended up being terribly lame.  I had to choose another horse or forfeit the money that I paid. One look at Samson and I was hooked!  He was an owner surrender that arrived to the auction the day prior and was scheduled to be auctioned mid week.  There was no way I was going to let him experience that!  He barely fit in the horse trailer and made the 8 hr trip home like a champ with no issues at all!  He is a gentle giant with a mind of his own.  We are still getting to know each other and build the trust/bond.  But I look forward to the lessons that this boy has in store for me!

I have learned so much from these fur babies!  It's been quite a journey!
