And then a miracle occurred

Rosemoon and her wonderful family came to pick up Split and two puppies yesterday.  We had a lovely visit.  I love Rosemoon and her family and so wish they were closer.  Rosemoon has already posted an entry in her Blog about how useful Split has become. Yea for Split!!!!!! The four puppies spent the evening […]

Back in the saddle again

I rode Merlin yesterday.  It almost didn’t happen.  It took me about an hour to catch and saddle him.  The first time I tried to catch him, it took about 20 minutes.  I brought him up and tied him to the trailer to saddle him, but he spooked and I didn’t have the rope halter […]

Spot found a honey hole
