From a graveyard full of icy snow creatures to a recreation of Gulliver being strapped to the ground, the sky is the limit when snow falls out of it.

One long-haired dog found a canine companion in a snow sculpture with an uncanny likeness, while another snap showed a ravenous snowman eating a man whole.

Merry Christmas 2021!






All of us at Horse and Man wish you the very best holiday season!

Yes, Norma knows that she doesn’t look like this anymore… but she also loved that hat and that pasture… so next Christmas, I promised her that we would be back in Grass Valley.

Thank you all for putting up with such a tumultuous year for me here.  And, thank you all for reading and writing and donating.  I read every email, text, comment and I count every penny for each horse in need.  Thank you.  Sometimes, you readers – strangers but not really – are my lifeblood.   I know your names.  I know your sentiments.  Many of you have been friends since the beginning.

Cheers to you all, 2022 and our move back to Grass Valley!
