I'm gonna try this again. I really love to blog. I like being connected to people from around the country. I feels like we are all friends. But, I'm not that good at coming up with things to blog about. I read some peoples blogs who write every day. I wish I could do that. How do they come up with things to blog about? I'm not good at talking on the phone. I'm not good at writing letters either(wink Kelle). After the first few minutes, I'm not good at talking to a person face to face. I just run out of things to say. But, I'm going to try. Maybe not every day, but a lot more than I am blogging now. ( Happy now Lil Sis?)
Now, back to everyday life.....
We had a nice Thanksgiving around here. Visiting with family and friends. Isn't that what Thanksgiving is all about? And of course, I ate too much. Two days in a row. I am officially starting a diet. lol.
We have been working with the horses a lot. We also received another two horses to the farm. Scout's mom came back to the farm after staying down at Hubby's dad's house for awhile. She needed to lose some weight. We also ended up getting another horse from Hubby's dad. Her name is Ginger. (I'll have pictures later.) She is another horse that was starved almost to death. She is(or was) a beautiful quarter horse. (I have a small spot in my heart for quarter horses. I use to barrel race when I lived up north.) Any way, we are going to have to put some weight back on her. I am this close to starting a horse rescue. It seems that's all we are doing lately. But, I'm afraid we would be bombarded with thousands of offers for horses to come here.
The last time I heard, there are over 20,000 horses that have been let lose in the state of Ky alone. People just can't afford to keep them. Horses have no value now. You can get a good horse for less than $100. That's including the saddle! It has been made illegal to kill horses for meat in the state of Kentucky. Now I am NOT for slaughtering beautiful horses just because you don't want them anymore, but I am also not for just letting them lose where they can be hit by trucks and trains, or, they could get diseases and die. Yes, I know there is mustangs out west that live in the wild. But, out west there is open spaces for them to run and be free. Kentucky is a little more populated. I have no answer for this hard question. All I know is I am doing my part in helping out these poor creatures.
Hey, for a person that doesn't have much to say, I sure said a lot today. lol
Until next time.....
