Exciting Horse News and Random Thoughts and facts about me (been tagged)... it is!
I've blogged so much about my mare I used to have a few years ago, you all know the story about Babe....I've been praying like crazy one day I'd be able to get her back....the steps to her used to be a world away, and now I'm just a half a step from her!!!!!!
My friend Johnny called me today to say that Larry (her current owner who bought her from me) will now consider selling her back to me!!!
My heart stopped! Since we have decided to sell or trade Bella, the mare we have now, I have offered him a trade, one horse for another. I should know over the next day or so what the verdict will my horsey friends...say a big ol' horsey prayer to God for me!!!!!
I'd give up so much to have her again. And if Larry does the trade I'll have peace of mind knowing she will be well cared for.

Okay on to some random thoughts and facts....I've been here goes:
  • Why is it that I keep forgetting to put the full container of tea in the fridge at night?
  • Why does my other cat only come out of hiding and want attention when I'm in the bathroom?
  • Why did Douglas shave off half of his right eyebrow 2 days ago?
