The new place...
I can't believe how many times I have said that over the years. We are crazy. Went to look at the house in Washougal again yesterday, and I have to say, it made all the work worth it. It is such a beautiful setting, and having our family next door again is going to be a blast. As long as we all behave ourselves. hehehehe Somehow, I did manage to acquire another horse because of the visit though. The previous tenants had offered to sell me their fencing, charger, etc. But- upon arrival, he made us a deal it was impossible to refuse. Well, not impossible, but pretty sweet. All the fencing, the charger, horse supplies, trampoline, wood, and RIDING LAWN MOWER- if we took the horse. Poor guy. He must have been desperate.
So, long story short, Steve- being sensible, saw how easy it would be to add ONE MORE horse to the herd, and save over a thousand dollars. Smart guy. I am actually glad for the old gelding. He is 17 years young, blind in one eye, and a pretty chestnut paint. It didn't look like he had his feet trimmed in a year, and was so hungry for attention he was just standing at the stall door waiting for us to come visit. Supposedly, he was a dressage horse, but due to his eye, no one has wanted him since. Very ridable per the owners, and quiet. We will see, but for now, at least he has a home, and loving on sad horses is what we do best.
God be with you today, and me, as we embark on our next adventure!
