In Memory of Sheila and Shasta

This summer held a few losses in our family. Just this week, one of our horses, Shasta, died in a lightning storm. We have had her since she was 1. This year she turned 7. She was a wonderful, gentle horse that Alma would ride and we were hoping to pass her on to Eden when Eden got a little older.

Sheila also passed away this summer in June due to cancer. She has been my dog for the last 11 years. She was a very quiet and obedient companion. Our family is much smaller now and they will both be missed. Lets hope that we have no more losses this year.

Corban's growing

Corban has grown to 11 pounds and 7 ounces now. He offers a wide range of emotions from one second to the next. We hope that he will soon learn to sleep for longer than just two hour intervals.
I'm afraid that I have not been able to take very many photos of him because he really hates to be put down.

New Arrival

Corban arrived on the 17th of July. He weighed in at 7 pounds 8 ounces and was 21 1/4 inches long. Eden has taken a liking to him already and insists on helping with everything involving the baby.
