We have new neighbors! Our cranky neighbors finally sold their house and moved away. See ya!
And in moved a really nice young couple. They are horse lovers and this beautiful critter showed up this weekend. They have 6 acres and our house looks directly onto their pasture. We were a little nervous about WHAT might be moving into the pasture. The cranky neighbors had cows (not quite legally, however!). We had contacted the county and learned that only recreational animals were allowed...and a limit of 2 animals (old cranky farmer dude had up to 5 cows and the flies were a MAJOR problem).
I can live with this guy with out my front window. There is one more horse coming. We've all taken turns just sitting on the front porch, relaxing while watching this gorgeous animal.
Our neighbor on the other side works with a local animal shelter and often has a foster dog at their house. She's a wonderful neighbor and I've really enjoyed getting to know her over the few years we've been neighbors. They were going out for the evening, so her current foster, Wrigley, came to spend a few hours with us tonight.
Elise and Mollie showed her all around our yard.
Mollie kept a close eye on her new friend!
At one point, they all ended up in the corner where we buried Sneakers. Elise just stopped and paused for a few minutes. We all still miss Sneakers so much. We never used to do much in that corner of the yard, but we find ourselves down there much more often these days. We typically find Molly laying down there. (OK, we have also found her digging around down there...that's a little too Stephen King for me!)
These pictures totally cracked me up....
And I just love the imp look on Elise's face in this pic.
