A Quick Visit With My Sister and Deacon --

We are entirely too close to Touchet not to make a quick trip to visit Deacon -- and my sister Sherry! We took the back roads through Helix and Gardena to Touchet, about ten miles of it gravel roads. The road took us by the many HUGE wind mill towers along the ridge between Oregon and Washington.

It was fun to see how much Deacon has filled out. He is much broader in the shoulders and hips then when we saw him last, but he's still the same slobbery lovable mastiff (note the slobber rag in my hand...).

Sister Sherry -- (that's a pretzel in her hand...)

We took a walk around the farm. The yellow roses beside Mom's angel are just beginning to bloom --

These are some of the draft horses that came to stay at the farm from the Animal Rescue people. Sherry's miniature horse stud looks so funny alongside all of the large horses...

Two of the mares were pregnant when they were rescued from the slaughter house. This beautiful two year is one of the colts --

It was a quick trip, but so good to see Sherry. Her grandson Kyle and her son Oly were there as well. It was good to see them all!
