Hi Group and a special hello to Sharon,
We just wanted to send a hello since Clyde and Norman's one
year anniversary was a few weeks ago. I can't believe it has
already been a year. For their anniversary they got 8 dump trucks
full of sand. We put it in front of the barn with hopes to help
Clyde with his leg soreness. At 30+ he deserves all the comfort we
can give him. Clyde now sees no reason to ever leave this area;
even in the rain we have to push him on to go back into the barn.
I can sit down right next to him when is lying down. My husband
laughs because sometimes we can not even wake him up. He is very
Norman doesn't mind staying in front of the barn, because he
can play ball just about anywhere. We also made them another mound
so they can continue to play king of the hill but now in the field
so we can watch from just about any window in our house. I tell
you, watching them is better than TV.
Norman has learned a new job. He has to help me carry the
muck buckets to the trailer and carries back the empties. He also
is now excellent on lead and gardens with me in the back and front
yard. He is such a lover, his favorite thing to do is cuddle with
me when I am sitting on a lawn chair. I know this sounds weird but
it is true, he is awesome.
Chelsea our 3 1/2 year old daughter now feeds and hays the
horses and donkeys. She also brushes Clyde and Norman just about
every night. She says, Clyde is her good boy and Norman is Clyde's
I can honestly say, they have brought us so much happiness and
love, we can not imagine our family without them.
I think they feel the same way, especially since they have not
had a day without some carrots, apples and/or treats.
