|Winston winning us over...|
|Winston on his way to a new life|
It's been a real team effort for us to go on the road! Horses Maggie, Ellie and Harry are staying at Irene and Tom Gillis' Gilcrest Farm (www.gilcrestfarm.com). Kendra DeKay is training Bali to ride while we are gone.
Our parrot Disco is spending his vacation at Pam Pruitt's house, where I heard he participated in a Yoga class last night! Our three dogs are at Tracey Leftwich's farm in Virginia, transported there by Lynn and Jeff Legg. Tracey has been sending us photos on a regular basis, they are having a great time with her dogs. Marion Belcher is watching the cats. Arnie Brooks is mowing our place. We could not make this trip with our support team, MANY THANKS to all of them!!
Many, many more thanks to all who have gotten Cooper ready. Our vet, Dr. Linda Hickey has gone above and beyond with her care and preparation. The amount of tests and paperwork that goes along with an international trip is amazing, and Linda has delayed her vacation to see Cooper off. Enjoy that vacation, Linda and Howard!
Keith Crawford, our farrier, has done a great job, and Dr Kerry Ridgway and his wife Christine have worked their magic with Chiropractic and Accupuncture so Cooper is at his best.
More thank yous to come!
