Lum and Princess
I have not posted for a while because we have been working our tails off. We have put up a fence, cleaned out and organized the barn, and cleared the pasture of dangerous weeds and "treasure" we keep finding all over the property.
Lee got me these two boot planters for my birthday. I fell in love with them. They look like a pair of worn boots. Specifically, Lee's old boots. Every time I look at them I think about him and smile. They frame the walk in gate nicely. We did all this work to get ready for.......
These big guys.
Lee went home to Arkansas to pick up these sweet horses from his dad. Meet Lum. He is a pure Missouri Fox Trotter. He is just beautiful and so loving. He melts me. He is named after Lum from the Lum and Abner comedy radio show. The show took place from 1932-1954 in a fictional town, Pine Ridge, Arkansas.
This is Princess. Princess is just a sweet and beautiful girl. Her name suits her well. She is 1/2 fox trotter and 1/2 mustang. She is pure sugar.
Both horses come right up to us every time we go in the pasture and expect to get lots of pats and neck rubs. They are spoiled already.
They are both such a welcome and long-wanted addition to our farm. Expect lots of pictures and tons of gushing over them for a while. They are worth every sore muscle and blister it took to get them here.
