I have just had the best weekend! Debbie Scriven / Doobie and I, drove to Oklahoma to pick up some horses, and we were able to meet three forum members. We met Susan Oberg / Horsehug, in Omaha to pick up a filly I bought from her, and had breakfast with her. The visit was way too short, but what a treat it was, I have known Susan online for years and was so glad to have the opportunity to finally meet her. Susan, Faith is just lovely, thank you again!

Then we went to Oklahoma where I was picking up a Bond Snippet daughter from Robin / REO, and a colt from Louisiana that Robin's husband Karrel had gone to Texas to pick up from Debi Murphy / Sevenacres for me. I have also known Robin online for quite a few years, since before I bought two horses from her years back, and meeting her and Karrel in person was truly wonderful. I just have to say they are every bit as genuine, kind and giving as I have found them to be in our online friendship, and their horses are absolutely beautiful....if you can get past all the friendly noses in your face demanding pets and scratches!
Robin I hope you were able to dry off those foals after Debbie and I drooled all over them
, and I am trying to break it gently to Randy that I found my next purchases while I was there, lol!

Robin and Karrel had a BBQ on Saturday afternoon, and Theresa / rockin r and her husband Art came over. What lovely people, we were really glad to meet them, and enjoyed the afternoon tremendously!


The weekend was over all too fast, and we loaded up the horses and headed home, and once back in Ontario stopped in at Lori Rafters / Milo minis, where she very kindly put us and the horses up for the night. We got to see her beautiful new fillies, and I met all her horses and saw my colt Samurai who is with Lori for the summer. He looks great Lori!!


Except for almost hitting a deer in Missouri on the way home, and a tense moment on Friday morning when my kids called me to say a mare was foaling and the baby was stuck (they managed to get him out and all is well and we have the tiniest wee buckskin colt
) it was a fantastic trip!

I want to say thanks to everyone, Desiree / Midnight Star Stables for loaning the little trailer back to me for the trip - that made it so much easier! Debbie for going on the trip with me, you are so much fun to travel with and I had the best time. I hope it won't be too long before we go on another. Susan for driving all that way to meet us in Omaha, Robin and Karrel for the hospitality, the great food
and a fantastic visit, and Karrel for driving all that way to get the colt for me, Theresa and Art for coming over and spending the afternoon with us it was so nice to meet you both, and Lori for the stopover on the way home. You are all wonderful and I feel priviledged to know you


Susan, Debi and Robin, I am just thrilled with the horses, thank you all so much!

What a great bunch of people we have met here on LB


Now back to work this afternoon
I would much rather stay home and play with my new horses!

Hi Magic, I don't have any pics since they got here, we got home last night and I have to go to work this afternoon, but here is one of the mare from REO:

This girl is 19, but she looks and moves like a five year old girl!!!

The filly from Horsehug:

HHH A Touch Of Faith



and after her partial clip



and the colt from SevenAcres:

this is his baby pic off my site and unfortunately a small one, I will get current pics of him later this week.

Well I for one hated the trip....

6800km in 4 days 22 hours is just NOT ENOUGH!!!

I wish we could of spent more time stopped and less time driving.

That and going from +90 degree weather to arriving home to SNOW!

I am so glad to have met some amazing mini owners and pleased to know call them my friends.

If only I had brought a bigger trailer and more $ with me I could of doubled the size of my own little herd!

Thank you Bec for asking me to come on this journey with you. I would/will do it again in a heart beat!

It was so great to FINALLY get to meet Beccy after being friends (what 6-7 years?) and it was just natural being with her in person. And Debbie! Did we ever quit laughing together? Nope! I have a new friend!

We had a nice Mexican food dinner I made for them Friday night and the BBQ on Saturday. They did not leave hungry! I'm so glad Theresa & Art were able to come on Saturday and meet the gals. It was so neat to have so many friends here!



I wish they could have stayed longer. But BOY, was that a Looong trip! I hope they'll come back soon <wink>

I'm so glad you got to come Beccy, even if it was all too short.


Karrel and I really loved having you here!


Susan, I would have loved it if you could have been here too. I'd like to meet you some day!

Must say my feelings are a little hurt...I wasn't invited. Robin must have been afraid I would embarrass her


Just teasing Robin...

I didn't get to meet the people but I did get to meet the horses!
If they are an indication of where they came from - the people are NICE!!! I was glad to have you girls here for the night and sorry to see little "Mickey/Fudge" leave - I got kind of attached to the little girlie while she was here and so did Mickey. Thank goodness I have some of my own to cuddle now! Maybe I will have to join you two in the fall Hey! We could take my trailer and bring home a herd!!!
