She followed me home. Can I keep her?

A few Sundays ago we became first time EVER horse owners.

I won't go into the crazy circumstances that brought this about.

And I won't tell you how not happy I was about this turn of events.

I WILL, however, tell you ------ she was without a name. Can you imagine?

A Horse With No Name ????? (wow -- flashback)

Lily Kate promptly named her Ladybird.

Ladybird was bony and hungry and her spirits were sagging. You can see her ribs. Her mane was tangled. Her eyes were matted. She had not been cared for, much less loved.

And NOW 4 weeks later, she is getting her groove back.

She is quite happy to see us when we arrive back home.....she comes over to the fence and nickers at us. Probably because of the delicious apples and carrots and sweet feed we give her. BUT, I prefer to think that she knows us. She loves us.

She is a wonderfully sweet horse.

I'm glad she followed him home.

Happy Trails ~~~

  3. You are so thoughtful and compassionate to give her a loving home. It breaks my heart to see mistreated animals, what a blessing to have her in your life and you in hers.

    I love her name, I believe it will suit her just perfectly!

  4. ohhhhh, what a sad story with a great ending! glad Ladybird has a loving family now.

  5. ahhh...thank goodness for wonderful people like you...what a lovely horse and a happy ending story.She will be the best horse ever...she knows you love her. Thank you for visiting my blog the other day. Yours is lovely!
