Happy New Year




" Happy New Year "

I’d like to thank everyone for their kind and thoughtful comments on our recent loss of Donnie.  We appreciated that you shared your thoughts with us.  The barn seems so sad and empty without Donnie there to greet us in the morning and his kind presence every day is missed by all.  This has been a year of loss at our farm, losing both Mellon and Donnie, who were an integral part of the herd and our lives.  They left us with wonderful memories of their time spent with us.  Along with the sadness there have also been many happy times spent on the farm to be thankful for this past year.  

I'm not one for making New Year's resolutions or goals for the coming year. The one thing I look forward to is spending more time getting to know Rosie and having some nice rides with her. 

That said I’d like to wish everyone a Happy New Year and all the best in 2018!  May you have good health and good rides throughout the year. And most of all lots of fun shared with family and friends, both human and animal.

  2. Let's hope that 2018 brings much health and happiness to you and your critters. Losing two members of your herd leaves a hole in your heart. Stay warm! This polar plunge is no picnic!!!

    1. Thanks Lori. It was below 0 last night and 4 this morning. I think that’s enough cold for this month!

  7. Happy New Year! It has been quite a year at your place and mine, too. I’ve always said I wouldn’t want to see through a crystal ball because it would be too much to experience all at once. One day at a time. I hope when you look back at 2018 there will be many good memories and great rides with your new girl.

  11. Catching up on blogs and realized I missed your Happy New Year post. Hope 2018 is being great so far (it isn’t here, but that’s okay, there’s still time) and that you’re settling in with Rosie. Looking forward to more photos of her and the herd and to hearing about some good rides!

    1. Hi billie. Happy New Year to you and your gang. Rosie is settling in and doing well. Not much going on here due to bad weather. I think the herd is still missing their old friend Donnie so they are a bit quiet.
