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

Volunteers Angels Needed
I have seen this alert posted on Facebook, and my friend, Once Upon an Equine posted it from the Colorado Horse Council Facebook page. Please share this with your friends. Even if you can't help in Colorado, maybe by registering with the Fleet of Angels, you can help out in your area at some other time.
URGENT CALL FOR VOLUNTEERS WITH EQUINE EXPERIENCE TO REGISTER FOR RESCUES OF EQUINE FLOOD VICTIMS IN COLORADO
Most areas in the flood zone are completely inacessible right now, BUT- when the rain stops and the waters start to recede, there will be MANY equines in trouble! PLEASE REGISTER at www.FleetOfAngels.org
If you have a trailer, a dry (enough) pen, stalls, arenas, extra hay, even sleeping quarters for horse owners and haulers, hot meals for helpers, etc. THIS IS AN URGENT SITUATION. Evacuating before the storm was not possible for most, so evacuating post-storm will be needed ASAP. With homes, barns, vehicles, and fields being washed away, equines will be in desperate need of help. We need MANY MORE volunteers in Colorado ASAP.
Please register at www.FleetOfAngels.org and then join the Fleet of Angels page on Facebook (only after registering, please), and stay tuned for more information and specific rescue missions when they start.
PLEASE SHARE WIDELY TO COLORADO FRIENDS AND SITES, AND IN SURROUNDING STATES.
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!
