They Keep Us Sane!

I wanted a place to show off our bunch of goofballs, so I thought this was as good a place as any. First a little background on my husband and I. My husband is a cancer surivior, he is in remission from Hodgkin's lymphoma. He had chemo and radiation last year. He now has CHF (congestive heart failure ) as a result from chemo. I have Lupus and it is not under control. We are 41 and 39 but feel like we are 70, however with our faith, family and friends we will conquer this.

In April a family friend was giving away his AQHA horses. His father, who had passed away a few years eariler was well known in our area for his horses. The horses have had no human contact or farrier service. DH and I decided to take 2 mares and a 5 month old filly. It was the best decision we ever made.

In these past few months these horses have brought such joy to our lives. They make us push through the pain and make us laugh.

So enough about us here are the girls( and 1 boy).
Sage, 11 year old palomino, dominate mare, mother to Cactus, and soon to be mother again.
Lady, 3 year old sorrel, mother to Cowboy.
Cactus, 9 month old filly
Cowboy, 2 month old colt.

. This is Lady, we still cannot touch her, but we can finally hold the feed bucket while she eats. She has come a long way!

This is DH working with her on the round pen.
. While DH was with Lady in the round pen the other 3 were bored with it, and took a nap!

Thank you Skyseternalangle and County Woman.

When we got them we were told that Sage was "most likely not in foal", but the stud was running with the mares in the pasture, so we knew there was a possibility. She has gotten bigger and bigger.

Beautiful horses. It's amazing the healing animals can bring into our lives, if we just give it a chance. I hope that you and your husband start getting better and better. When you have a bad day, it's a blessing to be able to go out and hug the horses, or even just to sit watching them. Lifts the spirits! Keep the photos coming. Those babies are adorable.

Pretty horses! I'm glad you and your husband have something to bring joy to your lives. Horses have a way of taking your mind off of everything else.
