Fun Surprise

Norman and Lily had a pleasant surprise today. They are owned by a wonderful family in the Chicago area and one of them happened to be in our general vicinity today. Everything worked our perfectly for her to have a surprise visit with Norman and Lily this afternoon. We were around all day (as we are most days) and our heavy rain from earlier in the day cleared out as well. Norman and Lily had a few extra carrots and some hugs and pats from one of their moms. Shortly after she left it started raining lightly again, so it really was one of those things where everything worked out perfectly. All in all a nice surprise for all involved!

I'm so delighted that it worked out - and my daughter looks thrilled (not so sure about Norm).

Great photos--your horses all look very happy!!

Found my way over here from Kate's blog.

I think it's awesome what you do.

I work with a rescue and we have 6 old timers. They are wonderful old horses, but are all horses that were dumped and discarded once they were no longer "useful."

I think it's wonderful that you provide this service for owners AND that there are responsible horse owners out there that do think about and provide for their older horses.
