A lot has happened in the last 50,000 visits. Darling and I attended the Lynden Pro Rodeo where we saw the cowboys lose to the colts.
I spent a few months with Curt learning to ride...but I gotta tell you I don't sit a horse nearly as purty as he does!
Tangy had her foal, a little red colt dubbed AJ. That little mare, you may recall, was as big as a house and way overdue. There was a bit of fear that she was harboring twins...but thankfully, no. It was just one nice, big hipped boy in there.
We went on vacation last spring to Burns. On our way home City Boy spotted a roadside attraction...the skull of a dead horse. And yes...our charming souvenir is still proudly displayed outside of our house.What? I needed to warn you as to the graphic nature of this blog? Oops. Silly me.
My parents left their home in Yuma to vacation for the holidays up here in the northwest. It used to be they vacationed in Yuma, but somewhere along the line things got turned around.
When they left for Yuma a couple months ago they took one of our kittens that had been born here this summer. He's their traveling companion. Apparently he feels my dad is an armchair. Or perhaps he thinks he's a parrot?
I saw far too many really nice horses left behind at adoptions this year, including this lovely mare. I wonder if she's still there in Burns? If so, I may just have to request that she comes to a spring adoption so I can bring her home and work with her a bit.
If you get a chance, turn on World News Tonight (tonight) and see Madeleine Pickens being interviewed about her plan to take on the over abundance of wild horses that have been in holding.
