Kip, Spirit and Thumby Fred

12 Sep

I got to spend a whole day with two of my favorite boys, Kip and Spirit, when Keep Chatham Farming hosted an Open Farm day.

I hung out with Kip, a Quarter Horse rescued from Claremont Stables, and Spirit a rescued Saddlebred, all day. Though the weather was less than ideal I was rarely alone and spent the entire day trying to keep Spirit from chewing on me while chatting with the dozens of horse lovers that strolled through to see all the now happy, healthy horses, donkeys, mules, ponies and llamalpacas that Equine Advocates has saved.

And then at one point during the day, the barn manager’s orange cat came to hang out with us, too. I have dubbed him Thumby Fred.

Do you really need to ask why?
