A year ago today Cherokee Lady moved to Nebraska from Oklahoma (through a storm on one of the coldest days!).
She has grown into a lovely, long-legged girl who will do nearly anything for horse candy. I can’t believe how much she has grown. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised after buying her groceries. 🙂
Delilah and her siblings were found under the preacher’s house during the summer. Her mom was doing her best to care for the four kittens, but they needed homes. Now the kittens are all grown up—at least teenagers now—and they are loved. My pal, Crystal, was the driving force behind the rescue. Another friend, Lania, stepped in to take the beautiful momma cat and the boy (now Bastet and Kal). The girls—Delilah, Ellie and Gabby—are now permanent residents at my house. They all plan to have a happy new year! There are no resolutions.
My pard, Char, made our horses some tasty candy. Our girls heartily approve, so we decided to set up a table at our local craft fair. Attendance could have been better, but we were mighty proud of our table. I freely admit that Char is the creative genius behind it all.
I went riding again (!) yesterday. Laura had me going up and down hills that I never would have tackled alone. I have SO much to work on so I can improve, but riding with my friend gives me confidence. Thanks, friend!
P. S. Next time I will reward myself with a soak in the tub.
Now, I realize that this wasn’t that long ago, but it’s a day I love to recall. Friends+horses=happiness. It’s a simple equation.
Time with my horses is never wasted.
Meet our latest addition to the family. She was adopted from a kill pen in Oklahoma at the beginning of June. She spent a month in the quarantine facility, and then my friend, Jeannette, took me to pick her up. Here you see our first meeting, her freedom ride and Topaz at home. She’s a very sweet mare, and she knows she is loved.
My daughter has been spoiled enough to have a few Snack Fever boxes straight from Korea. She has been thrilled so far. Anything chocolate is, of course, welcome. She’s also enjoyed the gummies and chips, but I think her absolute favorite things are the band items! We can’t wait to see what’s in next month’s box! Sometimes she even shares with me.
