LikeLike Reply Pix, on the day you posted this post my husband was in Merrimack, NH. at the Anheuser-Bush plant. After his inspection,(boiler-steam-nuclear) he was offered a tour of the Clydedales stables. He was simply amazed! The day before Christmas he returned once again and all the Clydedales were in their quarters, all called in from off the road. My husband who grew up with horses truly appreciated the grandness of their lifestyle. I got a sweatshirt! Beautiful barn photos. Blessings to all, Julie LikeLike Reply What a thoughtful Husband you have Julie! That is a coincidence, a good one. The AB Clydesdales are pampered giants and their barns are a delight to visit. Thank you for stopping by 🙂 I wouldn’t mind a sweatshirt myself, I will have to pick one up in the Spring 🙂 I think a picture of you in the sweatshirt with the chicken purse would be fun! I loved the shot with you leaning against the tree with one of the girls~sweet. LikeLike Reply Just say "hey"! Say more if you want, that's good too :) Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
