Bob and I are back from our buying trip.
Boy it sure was hot where we were.
Bob found a friend who was talking to him...
well grunting you might say.
It was a cute micro pig and he wanted
to take it home.
I reminded him that we have kitties. LOL
Found lots of goodes for the store...
and some for me.
We will save our new found items
for our next show in November
which will be in the town
where our store is located.
With my grandparents having horses on the farm,
my parents had me on ponies and horses
since I was 3 years old.
I loved horses then...and still do now.
Just in different ways.
Grampa H had a pair of strawberry roan Belgiums.
Grampa B had a white stallion named Lightning.
That horse was mean and would go after
anyone in his pasture.
I would have to run and get on Star's back
as fast as I could.
Once on her back, Lightning left me alone.
I mostly rode Star bareback,
with no saddle or bridle.
Grandpa B would always yell at me
to get off if he saw me on her...
but once he was outta sight, I would get right back on.
With my love of horses,
I had to purchase this one once I saw it.
It is now 1 of 3 that I own...and much cheaper
to own than a real one. :-)
It was well loved for sure.
The leather saddle is rough,
however you can see the straw that filled it.
Night time view.
My new one in the background.
My Christmas wish is to order a new loveseat,
since this one is so stained,
I now cover it with this crocheted blanket.
Santa, I promise I have been good this year. :-)
I think my new horse fits right in.
My nephew and wife in Charlotte, NC
left and went to Cleveland,
While my other nephew and wife
from Hickory, NC are hunkering down.
I hope they will be safe.
Please say a wee prayer for those who have been
affected by this monster storm.
My Love Of Horses Blessings To All!
