What a great morning. My babies came to meet me at the gate this morning. Talk about a four star morning!

I remember as a schoolboy, it was a great thing to get a star on a paper from a teacher. It was even better if that paper was a tough one, or from a teacher who didn’t usually notice me. I would rush home with the graded work and proudly post it on the refrigerator. Now, all these years later, I still like the look of stars. My horses all display them on their foreheads and I never get tired of looking at them.

It’s funny how things stick with us from childhood. My love of horses comes from my boyhood years. My grandpa Rice always had horses and I hope that I always do too. I like everything about a good draft horse. They are truly stars in  my book!

They’re lovely. What breed are they?

I’ve always had a mind to rescue an old Amish draft horse or draft mule. I love the drafts and their kind eyes.

Maybe someday when I have a bit more pasture.

They are Percherons
If you can find an old sound draft horse, they will be your friend for life!

For my purposes it wouldn’t even have to be sound. 😊

Well, maybe you are right, but either way, you will have a friend for life!
