Introducing Harold the magical horse. Harold came into my life during my last year of college and has been a wonderful travel companion ever since. He has been to several different states with me, gone backpacking, canoeing, etc. He has also survived many encounters with dogs that want to gnaw on him, pet rats, small children, and checked baggage. For a while he even took baths with and slept beside my dear toddler best friend, Althea in California.
Here’s what he’s been up to since moving to Wisconsin!
Growing up I never had a pet. This is crazy to some people but I swear, I never once had a pet. No fish, hamsters, cats, dogs, llamas, turtles… none. In the past few years however I have come to the realization that I love dogs. It all started when I dated someone with a dog. A big one. A big, loveable, snuggly one. After meeting him it was like a part of my brain opened up that I never knew existed. All of a sudden I found myself being one of those people who can’t help but talk to peoples pets everywhere I go. It’s such a joy to be staying on a farm with so many animals, especially two truly wonderful dogs that always want to play. I am saying all this to justify the fact that I am now going to post pictures of the corgis, Freddie and Dolly. Enjoy. I know I do!
The farm where I live has 3 horses, 2 goats, a couple dozen chickens, 6 cows, 2 dogs, 2 cats, and a ton of wildlife. The dogs, Freddie and Dolly, and the goats, Abe and Lily, are my favorites. One day while everyone else was out I decide to go on a hike with all my special friends. I put Abe on a leash and everyone else just followed. We went to the creek, through the woods, up the driveway, and all around the pastures. What a grand adventure!
