Grandma Wanted to Meet the Horse

Carissa has begged, plead, stood on her head, (hey that rhymed) etc. etc. for years for us to buy her a horse. She finally has one! (At least one we're making payments on!) His name is Honey, although he is registered and has some fancy French name as well...I just don't know what it is. His mother and father were apparently very important horses and so he will someday grow up to be famous himself. (Can you tell, I know absolutely nothing about horses!) Her riding instructor called and said this was the horse to invest we're going entirely off of her advice. So far he just costs lots of money and eats bunches and bunches! Not that different from my children now that I think about it. :)

It's darling how he comes to her call and follows her everywhere.

Honey doesn't allow others to touch him much, but he sure loves Carissa and follows her command.

Mr. Live Well's mom's in town and she is staying with us indefinitely. She wanted to meet Honey before it got too cold for her to get out of the house and visit with him. She is 87 and about 89 lbs soaking wet, so we have to bundle her from head to toe to keep her even slightly comfortable.


  1. I've been wanting to see Honey pictures so thanks for sharing. I'm so glad Carissa is having a wonderful time with the horse I've heard so much about. Nice picture of Brad and his mom too. She does look a lot more frail than the last time she was here.

  2. I always advise parents to buy a horse for their child when they are begging for it. That way they have to spend less time with the child themselves, and have loads of time for other more important things.
