Animals

Want to meet our animal gang?  We have a lot of furry friends living at Two Bears Farm.

Phoenix is my baby, and is a 21 year old quarterhorse/arabian cross.  I rescued him, severely abused, when he was only 3 years old and I was attending college in Texas.  I tenderly rehabilitated him, and he learned to trust again.  We are his permanent home.
 
Francie, a rescued 2 year old mare that I brought home starved and sick on Thanksgiving of 2013, and have since been habituating her to people and training her to be ridden!
 
 
Baxter, a 6 year old affectionate black and white cat we adopted from Barn Cat Buddies.

Willie, another cat we adopted from Barn Cat Buddies, who is very playful and loves to catch mice.
 
We also have a ten year old tortoise named Boxley. Pictures coming soon!

I just found your blog today over at J4Daniels where you guest blogged. I made it to the end of the list, and YES I do love animals! You're living my dream and looks like you're having a great time of it. What a blessing. And a great blog too.

You're so funny! I found your blog somehow through RDC. Yes, I made it to the end because I love animals. But living in a small house we can only accommodate a few. I'll just live vicariously through you, I've always wanted chickens and horses, maybe a cow too. :)

What a wonderful story with Phoenix! I bet you two have a wonderful bond!

Rob-bear said...

Um, well, yes, this is all good. But where are the Bears?

Mere said...

You say Grompet hates everyone, yet for some reason whenever Taylor and I are over she emerges and perches on our laps...I guess we have a special bond? :)

Loving all the animals :) We live near the Blue Ridge mountains of NC, no horses but we have a cat and chickens. We will be getting a new beta soon since our Archimedes died last year.

You have a remarkable bunch of pets.

Ok, you got me with the animals. We also live on a farm in rural VA. We have two horses, Mike & Ruby, 32 chickens + (more hatching in the incubator as I post), a Rhodesian Ridgeback/Lab dog named Biscuit and a bearded dragon. We're always looking for the next pet...a guinea pig, bunnies, fish???

Hi Lisa,
I am the new follower of your wonderful blog.
I love your animals, Lisa.
It must feel great to live in a farm. I wish I could live in a farm with many animals.
Thank you for sharing your world!
I hope you can visit my blogs, if you wish, Lisa.
Blessings,
Starry.
