It was the sweetest horse and he cooperated so well with the whole process. As I was ready to leave the property, the farmers […]

This week has been a very interesting one. It was pretty hectic the first half but then it slowed down on thursday and friday. I think it got quiet because of the horrid rainy and windy weather.
