This is not an easy post to write, but I wanted to write it as a reminder that when buying a house, plans change. I also said I would share this house buying adventure and this is certainly part of it.
The house that we found has 7 acres. The plan was to fence off about one and a half for the dogs, and leave 5 for my mare, Ricci and baby donkey Bocephelus. That was a real motivator for me with this property. I wanted to give my 22 year old mare a nice place to retire and live out her days. She has battled liver failure for about 5 years now.
I am sad to report that last Thursday, August 3rd, my oldest friend passed away from the liver failure. However, I got permission from the sellers to bury her on the property, because I just couldn’t stand the thought of leaving her behind.
