Musical Horses

It is a long, long story, but to shorten it a bit... The farm I was keeping Applebutter is closing;( I am so sorry for the owners and animals as it was a wonderful place to keep your animal. I have known this day was coming since late spring. I found a new place to keep her which is free, but much, much smaller. So today, we played musical horses...

Hitched up the trailer and Miss Applebutter loaded into the trailer easy as could be. She's always been very good about going into the trailer and behaving herself, so I was not too worried about too many shenanigans. Once we pulled out on the road, she threw one of her 'fits' and I had to pull over to check it out. I think that was the moment she realized she was leaving her friends. Everything looked fine, so we hit the road again.

About the only draw back to the move was the time it took place which was rush hour. This and the fact that the new 'Sam's Club' had opened on the 4 lane caused us to use back roads much to the dismay to commuters hoping to by-pass the hoards of cars heading to big savings on monster piles of stuff you think you want but really don't need. Lets just say that had a nice leisurely drive home that evening.

We managed to narrowly avoid a wreck as well! Folks, before I start ranting... There are speed limits on roads for a reason! So that you can get a visual... Imagine a two lane country road where one vehicle is patiently waiting to turn left across traffic when someone comes barreling down the road not paying enough attention and does not have enough time to properly react to prevent wrecking. I am just thanking the powers that be and my lucky stars that vehicle decided not to swerve into my lane while I was hauling an already unhappy horse. Instead, they went into the grass and hit a ditch. Luckily no one appeared to be hurt.

Half an hour later, we pulled into the drive of her new home. It is not quite as spacious as the old one, but I am planning to make up for that by spending much more time with her as she is now just a few minutes away.



She gradually slowed down after a while.


She was still very alert and aggrivated.


Coming over to say 'hi' before doing the 'i'm crazy run again'.

Other Fun Facts..................

I taught myself to knit by watching a woman while on a flight from Scotland to the USA in 1996.

I taught myself how to spin yarn Feb 15th, 2007. I think I've done fairly well:)

'Lunabud' is a combination of two dogs' names I was loved by, Buddy and Luna:)
