If you know nothing else about me...know this "I am a horse woman!".
I have had horses my entire life, for me...it's not a hobby, it's a life style. I eat trails during the summer and horse camp each weekend. My Ice Pony Huginn is my trail partner. My mini mare Dixie is Huginn's best friend. My best buddies are Lucy Bear and Molly Macaroni, my two dogs. They go everywhere with me and love to horse camp.
I'm the type a Girl,who will burst out laughin' in dead silence.....cuz of somethin' that happened yesterday!
"I begin to think no animal is more intelligent than an Icelandic horse. Snow, tempest, impracticable roads, rocks, icebergs - nothing stops him. He is brave; he is sober; he is safe; he never makes a false step; never glides or slips from his path." Jules Verne, 1864 - Journey to the Center of the Earth
Save a Life. Rescue a Pet Today!
"I looked at all the caged animals in the shelter, the cast-offs of human society. I saw in their eyes love and hope, fear and dread, sadness and betrayal.
And I was angry. "God," I said, "this is terrible! Why don't you do something?"
God was silent for a moment and then He spoke softly. "I have done something," He replied. "I created You."
