Grace is Growing

When we were up at the G-ma & G-pa's farm a few weeks back, we were so happy to see Grace. Grace is a Belgium horse bred usually to be a draft horse, to pull carriages, tractors, or sleds. She is still a "baby" she is a little under 2 years old. She has grown a lot since we last saw her. Here is a photo of her in her stall. She loves to eat hay, and for treats she gets a carrot, or peppermint candy.

Here is an old photo from last year when she was a little under a year old. Isn't she so cute? Grace is such a sweet horse. She loves to be pet on the head. And she is so soft!!

Oh, she's adorable! Mom was once in love with a pony called Joe-Joe. He loved peppermint candy, too! How cool is it that you can go to a real farm if you want to!!!

We love big horses around here, since we are at the heart of Percheron country!

Grace is a beautiful horse! She looks so shiny. I love your kitty videos! I see the kitties don't appreciate the "paparazzi". :)
Billie likes to sleep in the cat carrier. It's nice and dark and quiet in there.
Enjoy the springlike weather I think is coming your way.
Hugs and Purrs,

We sometimes sees horses when we're at the summer house. We think they are a bit frightening.
