The Gold Medal

Jamie Stone received her gold medal today from the Friesian Heritage Horse Registry. That was amazing, she found out yesterday she won and today the medal arrives.
She is pretty thrilled with this win. Jamie is looking for a black Western show saddle so if anyone has one they would be willing to sell reasonable please let us know.
We had a busy busy day at Berean. Eva Jean and I were dreading the work load knowing we weren't going to have Rhoda or Emily today. Rhoda had a job interview and Emily was hauling horses to and from Middle Grove. She took Anna and her colt out then brought back Soul, Serenity, Piper, Oksana, Lola, Emma and Ayanna. Emma for delivering her foal here and the rest for breeding. Thankfully other volunteers started to arrive.  Rachel first then Diane R and then Tiffany arrived with 3 of Lisa's kids and we put them right to work on the hundreds of Bibles waiting to be processed. They started picking up the labels and everyone of them were shocked at the amount.
 One of the prisoners sent us 10 stamps with a nice letter and another person sent a check for $20.00 to help with postage.
The Bible workers aren't the neatest workers but they sure are fast. Eva Jean walked in and let out a screech, of course work had to stop to check out what the problem was. 
Why take the time to find and use a garbage can when we are hurrying. We had so many Bibles to get out today Mark's van was needed to haul them to the post office. The count was 573 mailed out today. That is exhausting work so we are very very thankful for strong young backs for lifting and hauling to the table then out to the van. Tiffany had to leave before the last 2 boxes were finished but wouldn't you know Beth showed up just then and helped finish them.
After lunch Mark and I hauled them to the post office then I made it back in time to help Emily load up Prissy and her colt for her vet appointment in Morton. 
I took pictures of Dr. Hoerr sewing up the tear but they are all pretty graphic. If you would like to see them just shoot me an email and I'll share them with you. He had to sew inside and out but she will be just fine.
As soon as we got back we started teasing mares. Serenity is coming in but wouldn't stand very well, she will be bred tomorrow. Piper is in and stood well for Valiant then Oksana teased and she is in so was covered by Killian. We moved in a bale for them then I drove the golf cart over to the cabin to get a few pictures of Emma who is due May 26th.

She is in blooming good health, her coat is that shiny blue-black color and her weight is good. Middle Grove is just the perfect place to keep horses over the winter! Feeling very thankful today.
