Feeling blessed!! We are SO LUCKY to have so many friends who care about us and our horses!! Last night, there was a horse hit on Evergreen Mills, it is NOT our horse but so many people called, texted, messaged us to ask if our horses are okay. We, in turn are hopeful that the person who owns the horse is okay and that the horse is also okay. How scary for all involved and THANK YOU to those who contacted us. We are very grateful! Picture of the horse in the comments.
