Maybe now I can get down to Christmas business!

It is finished. The arrangements all made and executed, the almopst 3 hours of driving to go to the necessary destination, all the emails, text messages  and phone calls worked out the details and Calico Acres Farm, most specifically   my husband, now own a Registered Half Arabian , Registerd Quarter Horse named  Erin's Jig but known as CHIGGER. She is "blood bay"  a bright  rich  red color, with a black mane and tail, and a white sock  on her back right foot. For those of you who know horses, she is 15.3 hands high  for those of you to whom that means nothing, she is big. Chigger is almost 6 years old and my husband was totally taken by surprise when we called him outside to "see something" Friend and neighbor  Lori and I drove her truck and trailer to go get Chigger, had  a lot of fun in the process and were thoroughly impressed with what Naomi had found  on Craigslist for her Daddy. From the second she saw the ad she "knew"  this was her Daddy's horse. Details seemed to make this a not-workable deal  but God stepped in and it all came together in two days. Perfectly together.  I made a big  bow for Chigger's neck and Lori and Naomi led her over from  the other neighbor's pasture to make our presentation. It was absolutely a fun moment when he realized what we'd called him in such urgent tones for!!
Meet Chigger!!
