When there is such tragedy and horror in the world, how fortunate are those of us who have such beauty in our lives as when have animals?   

When our wonderful Rafael left to go home to his family for Christmas, I took over all his tasks and of course, that meant freak horse illness, weather in the teens, etc. but I must say, the day to day work that I have been so spoiled to leave to my two guys has been great therapy for me---I've cleaned more stalls in the last ten days than in the last ten years.   Why is this so much more acceptable than cleaning my house, I ask?

Besides enjoying the horses, I have enjoyed my new business venture and sending out xmas gifts ordered by customers of that undoubtedly will be enjoyed by the recipients.  How I have resulted in another business that revolves around beauty and animals is a wonder to me!

Several of the outside mares headed home, bred and I am delighted that Ibiza and Flama are back in foal to Gitano.    We wait for time to check to see if Isa also settled. 

Desti's daughter, Quiana (by Wanapum) is nothing short of a sensation.   If only I could get around to video to capture movement that we all dream of producing.   

I wish I was thoughtful enough to send each person that I care so much about a personal note and Christmas card, but I seem to not even make time to post here each month.    I hope that 2013 is a peaceful, healthy and tranquil and prosperous year for everyone.    Merry Christmas and the happiest of New Years------------------------------
