RUB-A-DUB-DUB ...

... A Benji- Bunn in a Tub!  Hold the water!

Tuesday we traveled to the Seattle area to see No. 1 daughter's daughter (in red shirt) working with her recently adopted Oregon Wild Mustang filly - Confetti.  The kid has been around horses all her life - Mom runs the Shoofly Farm - and is just finishing 7th grade.  6 weeks ago this 1-yr old was a free-range wild mustang pony in the Paisley Desert herd in Oregon.  The two have come a long way!  (Two one-hour training sessions almost every day!)  Her goal is to be able to show Confetti in a fall event - for these ponies - that features how well they have been trained.

COOL for Daughter No. 1 Daughter! Confetti is a looker and I know the whole project will be a success.

Benji prefers hay bath to butt bath...

This phenomena runs in families (only very fine families). Individual members cast their eyes upon the living things of this world seeking to do good. In these families big ears hold a special fascination, the better to say kind things into them. Some share their lives with bunnies, some with horses. One of our volunteers has a splendid donkey (mixing and matching often occurs). Blessings upon you all, but no one said it was going to be easy, at least not every step of the way. As Michael Himes said in his Last Lecture for Boston College, the Cosmos wants to tell you all about itself, you just have to ask it the right question. Number One Daughter, may you and Confetti gallop with the wild rabbits.
