I just realized that it has been quite awhile since I wrote anything about the dogs. We have been victim to the current state of things in the world, no money. But we will be back doing what Belle and I love doing and the sheep better be ready. Right now she things she needs to help me with the horses so I'm having to put her up when I take them out. Even though she had listened to me when I told her to get back and lay down. So like Diane told me recently she won't have forgot what she knows. May even try to get out Sunday at Janies to work with Derek.

I am doing my bestest deed ever. My girlfriend has been going through a extreme roughpatch the last year. Won't bore you with details. She has pets. Among them are 3 horses. They needed to find a better place for them so I just happen to mention something to my family. Next thing I know they are offering to take one of the horses. And I have taken in the other two horses. Well with having the horses here I realize it has been 34 years since I last owned a horse. My sons dad and I use to have a couple for riding. He wound up with the horses when we divorced. And for some reason I never got another horse. Thought about it. But didn't do it. I am reaaly enjoying looking out my window and seeing these 2 beautiful creatures. And my grandaughter is thrilled having Sport with her. Eariler this year I was chastised for giving her a dog without my son knowing. Here it is 10 months later and they are now living on a farm. They have 2 dogs, 2 goats, chickens, a duck and a goose. My son even lets the goose into the house when it was cold. I guess underestimated my son. I see now that I can get some sheep and it will work out. So after the horses move on some day than it will be time for the little ones.
