Misty Finally Goes Home

Thanks to Jeff and Virginia Hudson, who picked Misty up in the Bitterroot Valley and hauled her down to West Yellowstone, Misty is finally in her new home with Ann Stovall and her mother.

Almost there ...
Finally home

Misty meets more of the family

After plenty of squealing ...

A meeting of minds!

Ann's horse loving mother is blind, and Misty is her new horse to love and care for. The family, which includes an adorable blind mini horse who keeps company with a mini mule and 5 dogs, lives on a peninsula of a lake where they get bison coming to the house in the bitter part of winter. Thank you to this family for sharing their home and love with 28 year old Misty.

Bailey Has a Friend!

From Kim Dorman who is doing such a nice job of caring for Bailey - just look at how much his condition has improved in one month.
Bailey had his first day with one of our horses. We put him out with Shine, my mom's 15.2 hand arab gelding. They LOVED each other immediately. Whatever Shine did Bailey would do. Bailey wanted to eat out of the same hay pile (even though there were 4 of them), drink at the same time, roll at the same time, etc. They spent 20 minutes chewing on each other.

We have been brushing him daily and the long nasty hair just keeps coming out in matted clumps. We are hoping Shine will work on him during the day.
