Some visitors stopped by. At first I thought it might be because of my charm.
I think if you look at the pictures you will see it really wasn't about me at all!

I was very impressed by my horses. Usually they get a little hyper when people come out. They seem to think that everyone wants to hug on them, and end up fighting between themselves to get to the human. This would really not be so bad - except that I have more than one horse. And more than one can be intimidating!


The mares in the Top picture are Barbie and Broccoli. They have real registered names that are all proper and formal and all that - but I don't call them by those names. Kind of like my kids - I made up their names as well. And sometimes they can change based on their attitudes that day....


This one here - snuggling up to the tall soldier is Romeo. Usually he gets so close he knocks you over, but he was quite the gentleman on this day. This soldier fell in love with Romeo and offered to buy him.... he probably doesn't know that I can't break up a collection right? And his CO wanted to know where he thought to keep the horse when he got back on post!

This is Romeo again - he saw the camera come out and thought he would make the most of the opportunity.

Anyone want to guess how many horses I have? I can tell you I have more horses than soldiers that arrived......
