Crazy days!

We were dead set on simplifying our what do we do? Get two new pets.

This is Pandora, our miniature (or I should say,MY miniature,as my husband can't understand the need for one) and she is adorable.

And in the never ending search for a horse that is quiet and perfect, we found Rio through a friend of a friend of a friend on facebook of all places about 15 minutes away from where we live. He is a 19 year old Andalusian and wonderful gentleman. My husband and he will be perfect partners. Our older horse, Mick, is too arthritic to do trails that are challenging as he was ridden far too hard in his early years. He can do light work, but mostly has become a pasture ornament and a sweet companion.

Life here at Rancho Pintado has become a little busier, but much more fun with each new addition. Expect to see many paintings of these beauties.
