Well, just yesterday we thought our last puppy would be leaving us. And in a change of events, we have him back with us today. He is a cute male purebread labrador with a sweet temperament. When a mom and daughter came by and picked him up, I think the feeling was pretty bittersweet. It was good to know the puppies would be gone and to nice homes. But they were such a fun part to the ranch. The neighbor kids loved to play with them. And they were great to pet for those that came to ride the horses too. Needless to say, most everyone was excited to see our puppy come back. We still would like to sell him to a good home. So if anyone is interested, we'd love to hear from you!

It may not look like much yet but we were able to purchase this used trailor. This has been our key project for the past week. It took Jennifer, Amber, and I 3 days of wire wheel grinding and a group from Bluffton to completely sand off the old paint. The girls from Bluffton finished the entire inside in their one day here on the ranch and we are so thankful for their help. Now that it is sanded, we wiped off the dust and are working on priming it and might even hopefully paint it with a sprayer later today. It has been a large task and that has made it even more exciting to see progress. It will be the best trailor this side of the Mississippi!
The Bluffton girls were so helpful! They drove all the way here on Friday evening and worked hard all day Saturday. Well, all day includes the serious riding they each did on the horses. Amy, Sadie, and Alicia, the theme words for your riding were "no fear"! You three whipped those horses into shape (not literally).
