A year of joy and tears and growth.
I didn't blog much ,and I have come to grips with the fact that at 2017 was not a year for me to be writing, at least not on the blog. But I am not giving up.I had a pretty big bobble in my spirits with the loss of my beloved johnny Handsome this year. But life is a constant circle. Because before that heartbreaking loss came a time of great joy, that carried through and continues to bring this family smiles of wonder and pure joy with the birth of my great niece Birdie Patricia!And let me tell you, through all of this year she has lit up our world!
I got a new mare this year,from a fellow breeder, Jenny's Spirit Hawk. She is bred to Phoenix for a 2018 foal!
Speaking of foals, on May 02 (my birthday at 12:05 am "Imagine That" daughter to FV Sparks image was born. Not my horse but in my care for her arrival, kind of a grand foal, since her Dam is Maggie ,a mare I raised here.
Oh yeah, my birthday...
I turned 50! and had not one but 2 birthday parties!
Then another visit with Birdie for Mothers day , or Aunties day depending on your perspective!
HAd a guest here on the farm for a while , Eurus the Quiet Giant came to stay for a few months
I was blessed to attend a special wedding, Katie and Mark, Katie is the daughter of a dear friend ,and as honorary Auntie I wouldn't have missed it !
We have come a long way together Katie and I , from ponying her and sister Amy on their little Rio, and I on the "solar powered" Boomer!
The boys continue to be ,just who they are and the rest of the critters seems to be doing well
Happy New Year Everyone! As always stay safe!
Hopefully a new post soon. I can tell you my plans for my next 50 yrs!
