I have been here since 2001...I used to be on here a lot more and maybe that was because I had under 38" AMHR Miniatures and was new to them, but haven't been on a lot in quite sometime for many different reasons. I will try to participate more
I am 57-year-old and was born and raised in Spokane, Washington and the surrounding areas. I got my first horse when I was eleven and he was a dream 3/4 Arabian gelding that I had for 28-years and can't ever be replaced. I got my first Shetland pony when I was twelve and a few other horses and ponies growing up, plus some Arabians when I was a kid. I showed quite a bit in the Spokane area shows in halter, western and english riding. Got my first Miniatures in 1982 and few Shetland ponies in 1996. My husband and I now raise 100% Arenosa Miniature Shetland ponies and Miniature Hereford cattle.
My parents and a brother are both gone now, but I have a wonderful brother, Denny who lives in Washington(so I try to come visit every year) and sister, Judy in Montana. Plus many nephews, nieces, great nephews and nieces, cousins, step children, step grand children, and step great grand children and one aunt. So I have plenty of family
I was have been married twice and now I live in beautiful Wyoming with my second husband, Mel who treats me like a Queen
He has all the children so I have the step children too. I love them all very much! We are born again Christians and follow the Lord and our given Bible to the letter...
It's beautiful here in Star Valley and we are close to many outstanding and beautiful areas. Yellowstone Park, Jackson Hole(60 miles north), the Snake river and Periodic Springs which is a rare and the natural spring flow which stops entirely for a few minutes and then begins again in regular intervals during the warmer months of July, August and September. Really a site to see. There are only a very small number of these in the world, one in Jerusalem, Nepal, South Korea, France and Solvenia. The one here in Afton , 8 miles from us is the largest..Many things to visit if you come to the great State of Wyoming!
We have decided to retire for raising the ponies and will just keep the cattle for now. I love it here and life couldn't be better...well maybe if we won the LOTTO it would be easier LOL!
Welcome to all the new people here!
My best and many blessings,
