Bye Bye Babies

It was a long season, but all the babies have finally gone to their new homes.

Where did they go?

Marty and Martina went to Shaw Island in the San Juans.

Barnaby and Roosevelt went to a farm in Vaughn that raises Shire horses.

Harper Lee went to Carney Lake, where she is ruling the roost.

Herman, Pilgrim, and Ricky went to Seabeck. Tinky, my yearling daughter, went with them.

Moony and Betsy went to Duvall.

Franky and Joey, Barry and Whitman, and the two best babies of the year - my adorable sons Huckleberry and Barbaro - went home with some nice people from Port Orchard.

You might think that leaves us lonely. But no, because Lolo, Willa, Wronny, Cammy, and Wrusty - so full of himself already - are staying here.

Well, ok, we are a little bit lonely.

Bye bye, babies.

Remember who you are. Remember where you came from.
