Have A Wonderful Holiday


This is an exciting time of year.  We can all take a moment and be thankful and joyful for our friends and family.  We can also take time to give to those that mean so much to us.  I would like to send a special greeting to those that have given support to me with my art career this past year.  To all of you that visit my blog and a special thanks to those that make a comment or two.  It is so encouraging to hear from each of you.

The photo above was taken at my farm in Missouri a few years ago.  I am out in the horse pasture holding all four of my mares.  This was no easy task since Angel is the head mare and would only stand by her daughter, Cayenne and Hopi had to be careful of Cayenne since Cay likes to boss her around and then poor Mystery had to be all on her own since she is the low horse in the herd's pecking order.  I have lots of good memories living in the Mid-West and being a Farmer's Wife.  It was a great life.

Peace and Love to all.

Your horses are beautiful! And God knows I've tried to move away from Missouri but I always come home. I lived in Tempe, AZ and Poynette, WI but MO called me back.
My brother has lived in Redondo Beach, CA for 25 years and says he's ready to come home. He likes KC. My sister lives in Maryland, close to the ocean but will eventually come back to Missouri. She likes St Louis. I prefer the laid back pace of central and/or Southern MO. Hope you come back to this wonderful state time to time, and if only to do the trail ride in Eminence, MO.
