Yes, it's none other than Topper, the horse from the show last September. With the break in the winter weather we have been thinking about the new show season.
Topper, of course, is not the least phased by our thoughts and plans. He really thinks he is above all that!
And, just in case you get the wrong idea about Topper, here he is looking very handsome--and doesn't he just know it! His tail has been braided and wrapped all winter and we took it down and brushed it on Wednesday. It drags the ground by almost a foot--but will be shorter by show time.
Some of you may be disappointed that every post is not about quilting--and for that I am sorry. But I can't tell you what learning something different does to your entire attitude. Two years ago knitting re-ignited my creativity and now working with the horses is doing that in yet a different way. For over five years I did little but work--and now I am getting a life, literally. Think back to something you enjoyed as a kid or a younger adult--is it feasible to try it again? Or a different version of it? And remember, keeping your mind active helps to keep Alzheimer's away. I have some quilting stuff up my sleeves, so stay tuned--you won't be sorry!
Hugs to everyone who believes they are special (that should be all of you!),
P.S. You may notice some changes on the right side of the blog posts. I have added my picture (my eyes, my eyes!), updated my "complete profile" and added several more blogs to my list. Enjoy!
