Our two girls, Carter and Charlee, always add exciting dimensions to our lives every day. Our animal family includes Irish Draught Horses; Quarter Horses; 2 ponies; a small flock of Katahdin Sheep; along with Checkers, our Border Collie; and cats; Phoebe, Bert, and 3 new tortoise-shell calico kittens.
