About me

I started out as a horse crazy girl, who, when she couldn’t be riding horses would draw them instead. There didn’t seem to be employers lining up with jobs needing girls to ride and/or draw horses all day, so I put that aside and went off to college for a sensible degree in Graphic Design.

I married a farrier and unleashed the repressed horse art into promotional materials for him, and later, other farriers. The long story is here.

In spite of both of us working full time, we were basically poor. Interest rates were in the teens and banks were stingy with loans. We desperately wanted a small farm, but there were none to be had in our price range.

Except… an abandoned farmhouse situated on the corner of a remote patch of land owned by a corporation in another state. God had His hand in that one, as door after door swung wide open and this naive, albeit energetic couple purchased our “dream” (and I use that term loosely) house in the country.

Along the way we acquired a menagerie of animals, loved them, and cried when they left us.

This blog is an eclectic compilation of our adventures along the way.

  1. I am blessed to have found your site. I recently ordered 25 book marks with the riders prayer on it. I brought them to our first ride club meeting in Sept. and they were all taken. Thank you again, Mary Abraham.

  2. I admire your awesome project involving the stone veneer! The horse and grinding stone were great touches. Did they apply the stone over the existing brick on the exterior!?

  3. Gina, thank you for this touching, honest and direct account of God’s development of all that is involved in the memorable word and concept ‘Hoofprints’. I discovered your website and organization after I ran low on the unforgettable painting and picture ‘Found’. I ordered two more sets, and they are going fast. “I’ll be back!”

    Probably it touched my heart as it did because of what the Lord did in my own life. I ordered a set, sent them to friends who needed just that reminder along with appropriate messages; the replies indicated that others were touched and encouraged because of what you began…making available the cards. Simple, hey? But most real and lasting work in the minds and hearts of people is simple and usually invisible.

    So, my reasons for this note are two: 1. Thank you for Hoofprints and for all that you carry. 2. Thank you for being quietly available to affect lives.

    With Kay’s and my gratitude,

    Harris Langford
