I am on someone elses computer to post this for you because after trying to keep the secret for me, mine died. Can't turn it on, so I can't post any pictures, le sigh.
But thanks to the person where we went also posting about it this morning you can see that after 3 years of watching to see what happens to all of the animals at 7MSN Ranch, Casa de Cuckoo, sans Sweet Man made the trek to visit Linda Carson. Here's the link, http://www.the7msnranch.com/2012/07/the-line-for-love-forms-here.html
The kids were in animal paradise what with rubs, scritches and views of Handsome Hank the horse, Lucy the sweetest, most patience, riding donkey in the world, George and Alan the goober brothers of donkeydom and Winona the pig, who when she drinks sounds like she's using a straw and the chickens.
Now Ry loves to eat eggs. It is one of his favorite foods. But to hold a still warm egg in his hand????? He said he was protecting a baby chick. NO matter what we told him. It was a thrill for GK as well. I have to admit it was pretty amazing for this city girl to hold it as well.
Inside the 7MSN Ranch house we met Smooch (and fell in love with her) and the cats Rosebud and Snapdragon. Rosebud gave us a concert much like our own Sunny Bunny and Smooch warmed up to us and we were treated to licks and wags like we belonged .
Linda Carson is the luckiest human in New Mexico. Every window of her home is a vista of true New Mexican beauty. It looks like she has the best art New Mexico could muster and it is right outside her doors. As a matter of fact, those windows look like paintings instead of windows......eat your heart out Taos and Santa Fe, the real artist beauty is provided by Mother Nature thru the windeows of 7MSN Ranch.
And when you go visit 7MSN's blog, check out the kiddos. They both got to ride Lucy. GK was over the moon about being able to do so with Linda giving her instruction but not leading her. GK looks good in the saddle and is very comfortable. Ry got two turns and by the time he finished his second, GK wanted a second also but sprinkles of rain were felt. And trust me when I tell you.....those red clay roads are not ones to travel when wet. So our time had come to an end.
We had such a nice visit. Couldn't have asked for a more welcoming host. And came home tired and happy in the knowledge that we had made a new human and many animal friends.
pssst....I have a secret crush on Hank. He really is a big wonderful dog but don't tell anyone. He got to licking us and Shelley and I are still tickled this morning, it was hilarious. Such a fun day. Thanks Linda, Smooches and Squoozes from Casa de Cuckoo.
