New adventures

Well here goes! My sister has been after me for months now to start a blog so I thought ok why not! She has a very successful blog titled "A Little Farm with a Big Heart". I live on three acres in the little Texas town of Alvin with my DH and many other precious babies including 3 horses, 6 dogs, 4 cats, and chickens (both rhode island reds and banties). I love my animals and I love antiques and have a booth at Dixieland Antiques here in Alvin. You can visit my facebook page titled C&C Collectibles and Antiques to see my items. I plan on sharing my thoughts, ideas, and just plan pondering on both my farm life and antique life with you guys.

For today I would like for you to meet Cyrus who is one of my newest adventures.

We purchased him about 2 weeks ago from a gentleman who was getting out of horses because of health issues. Cyrus had not been ridden for about a year and I have been working with him to get him past some issues. He does not like the bits I have been using so I am going to try a hackamore this evening. We have plans on making this my husband's trail horse. (Ok mostly my trail horse but that's what I told my husband shhhhh). He is a 10 year old paint horse and I sure hope he works out.

Well that's all for today...come back soon!

Welcome to the Blog world! Your life will never be the same again!
Welcome to the wonderful world of retirement... and you have already figured out that you don't have time for everything you want to do, and oh my, how did you ever get anything done when you worked?!
I'm looking forward to reading more about your critters.
If you get a chance, stop by my blog. I have an antique thing-a-ma-jig posted and we have no idea what it is. Maybe you've seen something like it and can spread some light on it!!!
