And speaking of horses

I've been looking for this article from Prairie Country-Community, since, why it was the second to last day of May. It was written on Haflinger horses, they are said to have a "mighty good personality." Not only that, but they are obedient and very smart.

When my husband (or someone, perhaps it was karma) made my saved article disappear into thin air (it is too possible), I was seriously heartbroken. I don't get that way very often in case you're feelin' the villain energy, only my husband (and now, horses) can really break my heart.

I figured, I kind of remembered the name, sorta thought I could recognize it if I did some research, "smart, obedient horses from Warren, Minnesota." Maybe fate would have it in for me, and some horse would come lookin' for me. I've heard that can happen...but with those wire fences and all.

Well, to keep this story short (exactly how I like 'em), "no not miniature horses, stay away!" "I'll see you at the County Fair!" "Yes you can wait 'til July."

I found my story, thank you Grand Forks Herald online (right on the front page)!

So, are you looking for a horse or just looking? Funny you should mention Haflinger, since that's not a breed most people know about. The article is so true. Haflingers are the best horse for kids and grown-ups.

Oh no, it's best friends for life, I promise...and once I visit you in London, I'll decide whether or not I want that city associated with our names.

Bestfriendsgrowingupinlondon, hmm.

Holy serendipity!!! A Haflinger salesperson...it's a miracle. Wait, wait...reality check. Do you have a Google Alert for whenever a person blogs about Haflinger horses?

Linda said...

Ah! You caught me. Yes, I have a Google Alert for anything that's posted on Haflingers...but...I don't sell them...I don't breed them...I use them exclusively for our Therapeutic Riding program. I LOVE them. We've been doing TR for over 20 years and this breed really works well with our riders.

No Linda, you caught me...and I don't settle very easily.

Pardon me, fellow bestfriendsforlife-growingupartists-inLondon...that's much better. You're welcome in any of our conversations at anytime (I'm on Central time, don't tell new Zealander).

And I promise I won't make fun of your accent. Mwah, mwah, mwah!
