Special Delivery

What a weekend!

Saturday was finally the day that my husband brought his little hinny home ;) Daisy, a miniature mule, and Romeo, a pinto pony, came home to Apolloson Acres. We started the day out early as they were calling for rain. My husband tried not to act so excited and he walked around outside in his pajamas, with his coffee, doing a last minute check over on the mini stalls before we departed. He wanted us out on the road by 7:30ish and by god, that is just how it happened!

We had to go down the road to the neighbors to hitch up their trailer we were borrowing, as well as pick up a horse they had that was coming to the horse rescue. Once we got that all taken care of, we were on the road to H.O.P.E. I must say, in very non-fashion for us, everything went as planned, no incidents or issues!

We picked up Daisy and then headed to the foster home where Romeo was staying. Once there, Allen brought Daisy out of the trailer and we "re-introduced" her to Romeo before we loaded them both on the trailer together. They trailered fine and are settling in great!

My husband doesn't admit it, but I can see how excited he is to have Daisy at home with him! Romeo is a doll and we'll continue his training while he continues to wait for his foster home. He can be adopted through H.O.PE. - http://www.hopehorserescue.org/

And just in closing for my weekend....which was also the close of another year at the Medina County Fair.....it wouldn't be a County Fair without a little CRACK sighting ;)
