A look at my life, perhaps with a slightly egocentric focus!
Horses, gardening, skiing and fly fishing. Dreamy!

Mrs. Owner: Are you ready, Doc?
Doc: Yup! I've turned my head and my eyes are shut. Toss the hay down.
Every morning, after sweeping the boys' "breakfast plates" I head up to the hay loft. I weigh the hay for Pippin and Doc and throw it down to them. Pippin with his ADHD is no problem. While he waits he is walking in and out of his stall, so I can time my toss when he is out of the area. Doc, however, comes in and stands.... and waits... oh, so patiently. He has learned to turn his head away from the target area - cracks me up every time!
When I was a little girl I dreamed that I would marry a wonderful man, raise Golden Retriever puppies and have my own stable. I must have done something right because I am living my dream! I married an incredible guy and we've been married for over 4 decades (it doesn't make me sound as old that way)! We raised 2 litters of adorable Golden Retriever puppies. Now, I am retired (that wasn't part of my original dream....but as a child I just didn't realize how 'dreamy' it would be!) and I live on almost 10 acres of land. I enjoyed having a team of Haflingers in the back yard but have recently traded in 2 horse power for 340 horsepower. We purchased a motorhome and spend a fair bit of our lives traveling the country. Life is good!
