The truth as I know it:

We witness a miracle every time a child enters into life. But those who make their journey home across time & miles, growing within the hearts of those who wait to love them, are carried on the wings of destiny and placed among us by God's very own hands. ~~~ Kristi Larson

Maybe I came out of retirement too soon?

Obviously, I overestimated the amount of time I was going to have in May when I broke my three-week black-out. But this weekend, my parents have the kids (do you hear angels singing? No?  Me either, all I hear is SILENCE! :)  Anyway, since I don't have the kids, I actually have some time to sit down and goof off on the internet.  And show you what we saw last weekend at my Dad's house.  Steel yourself because you're about to see a dose of gorgeous with a dash of "awwww"....

I don't know this mare's name, but her little colt is SOOOO cute, don't you think?


Oh yeah, definitely a cutie pie!


This is my dad's favorite mare, Dessie.  Her colt is sort of ugly though, it's called "creamella" (I don't know how to spell it) which is apparently not a "desirable" color in a horse (I see why) but this horse is so sweet that it makes me like her ugly colt.  :)


By comparison though, the palomino colt is much prettier.


But Dessie is a pretty horse...


This is the bay mare, she's not too friendly though, very skittish with me in the pasture, so I didn't get much opportunity to photograph her baby, which I think is the prettiest of the colts.  I think my dad said this color is chocolate palomino, which is apparently very desirable?????


And there's our little cowgirl on Leon (Liam's horse.)  Doesn't she look tiny up there?  


She sort of looks like a natural on the farm, don't you think?

As soon as I saw the horse pictures, it made me a bit homesick for Kentucky. Beautiful pictures!!! Meg definitely looks like she could be a natural farmgirl, especially with the grass poking out of her mouth! LOL! By the way, she is getting more and more gorgeous with each picture!

I think I see a little love in Meg's eyes for that horse. Liam might need to watch out. girls get what they want.
