Tomorrow morning bright and early I’ll be on my way to pick up my two new miniature horses with my youngest son who will drive the horse trailer down! We’re down to the wire. I couldn’t be more excited. They both need a little loving and care, but are in good health and condition. My husband is now getting the finishing touches done so we’re all set for their arrival. Thank goodness for his non-stop efforts or this would not be happening as soon as it is. I know he has done this all for me and I couldn’t be more thankful. I feel like it’s Christmas every day watching all the progress.
My daughter-in-law (whom I am most appreciative for) and I went shopping for the needed supplies. While the monthly cost to keep them isn’t bad, the initial cost (as with anything) did jump up there. Hay, feed, pine shavings, hoof pick, halters, lead ropes, water and feed containers, grooming kit, metal cans to keep feed in (and avoid mice invasion), and okay, maybe a bag of apple horse treats, all add up quickly. Definitely a worthy expense in my book. By far though my most exciting purchase was the halters my daughter-in-law spotted which both say “I Love My Mini” specifically made of course, for the miniature horse! One blue and one purple which is appropriate for my mare and stallion.
Sleep tonight might be hit and miss with the anticipation of getting my hands on the new additions to our family. I am so blessed and fortunate to be where I am today. Not a day goes by that I’m not grateful for it.
Not a surprise that more pictures and stories will be forthcoming. Stay tuned and encourage others to follow my blog to come along on my journey!
