Sweet Success! Anna Blake

By Kathie Scrimgeour

Anna Blake’s memoir, Stable Relation (ISBN 978-0-9964912-0-4, 240 pages), was released July 2, 2015 by Prairie Moon Press in paperback and ebook. It is available at Amazon and everywhere books are sold.

When most women go through a mid-life crisis, they start a diet, get plastic surgery, or have an affair. My life went to the dogs…and horses…and llamas… and did I mention happy hour with the goats?

My urban world came apart, so I took a leap of faith and crash-landed on a dilapidated would-be horse farm on the flat, windy, treeless prairie of Colorado. It’s the story of my bittersweet transition from a mid-life orphan to a modern pioneer woman, building an entirely different kind of family farm--Jeanette Walls meets James Herriot.

Anna Blake was born in Cavalier County, North Dakota, in 1954. She is a writer/blogger, dressage trainer, and horse advocate, residing on Infinity Farm on the flat, windy, treeless prairie of Colorado. The herd also includes horses, llamas, goats, dogs, cats, and Edgar Rice Burro.
