There were so many moving Videos this week… I thought these three would be a nice overall mix!
- Drafts Collecting the Trash! I loved this video because of the ingenuity of the trash collector – and the enthusiasm of the host! Evidently, a town in Vermont lost their funding to have a trash collector… so one very smart man trained his draft horses to pull a wagon and collect trash! Win-Win!
2) LITTLE ‘VALENTINE’ WHO WAS FOUND IN A DITCH ON VALENTINE’S DAY – UPDATE! The great news is little Valentine doesn’t need surgery AND he found a foster who will help him recover totally!
3) And finally, GRANNY PODS! I had never heard of these, but what a great idea! They are ready-made ‘little houses’ that are rigged and tricked out for the elderly. So, you could install one in your backyard if you wanted to have your elderly relative stay at home with you but still remain independent!
THANKS FOR SHARING YOUR SUNDAY WITH ME!

Hi Ina! Thanks for the comment! I know it is hard to believe, but just a few months ago, this mare was untouchable. Now, I can touch her all over, but she still barely wears a halter –
and that is my fault because of my work schedule. But, hopefully soon, she will be further along.
When I was care-taking a half Perch/ half Shire mare- I found to keep her amused and off the fences- we made a super strong scratching/rubbing post for her. It was the biggest sturdiest post we had, buried securely in the ground, right out in an area way from buildings and fences. Babe would spend hours rubbing against that post- In fact she wore it out, and we had to replace it! But it kept things around her intact. Maybe it would help Annie?
PS: Even if she is preggers, and that behavior does sound hormonal, it is time to give her an outlet for that energy. Lunge? Ground drive? Lead?!
