We went out to see the wonderful ladies of Brighter Days in Pipe Creek (near Bandera) and met some of the wonderful creatures that they have rescued.  Ron offered to take care of their feet and donate his services.

This is the largest donkey I've ever seen.  He can barely walk, but he's well taken care of!

The lepord appy and white horse are both blind and they take care of each other and are just the sweetest horses.

The horser with the blue blanket is 40 years old and can't hardly eat, but happy and enjoying being with other horses for the first time in 15 years.
The ponies were found on the highway and no one claimed themj - just precious creatures.
The beautiful white horse was as tame as could be and just huge. I wish I could remember all their names. This room contains all their special feed for their special needs.

Wonderful picture of Howard Smith on his pride and joy - his tractor - working on his garden. Howard has been our benefactor and guardian angel since we got here and he will continue to be a dear friend when we leave.  Also pics of his dogs chico and Speedy.
