Some of you might remember a blog I wrote quite some time ago called “Laura’s Family Farm” where I described my aunt’s horse farm and my childhood summers there. Living in the city, it isn’t always easy to find a special place or even some manure to shovel but a few weeks ago I took a plunge. I made a childhood dream come true. That’s right. I bought a horse. A big, black, shiny beast. Now there is plenty of manure and a 1,300 pound excuse to leave the city and get some fresh air whenever I can.
