(Re)Introduce Yourselves & Herd!

Recommended Posts

Mestengo here. Obviously I was a victim of the great HC name swap a few years back. The BF and I are still in northern Illinois, though we've switched towns a few times in the past 7 years or so.

Most of you know, my thoroughbred-mustang cross, BlackJack Bay, passed away back in 2009. My little grade Arabian, Rafiq, is now 13. After 8 years together, he can still be a handful on the trails, but I enjoy his intelligence and affectionate nature. 

We lost our lovely rough collie, Skye, to cancer in 2015, which was a hard year in general for us. I lost my best friend to cancer and another old horse-related acquaintance to suicide about the same time. Then, my mom in Wisconsin suffered a sudden-onset dementia and later needed surgery for hernia on Christmas Eve. Not to be left out, I ended the year with bruised ribs from being thrown into a wall and started 2016 with a torn knee from a non-horse-related incident. I always say, bad things come in 7's.

The one good thing in 2015 was our new smooth collie pup, Evie, who is now 2 years old. She's always such a happy pup. We also have two cats, Gearron, a 10-year-old male, and Shadow, 5-year-old female, both from barn cat litters. Pics are of the current furry family.

Thanks for the animal photos, Mestengo. Do you have any more of your horse? I'm a sucker for just  the wide snip on horse faces.

I've been away for awhile too.  I was N4L here once upon a time, but I'm using my real name now.  I still don't have a horse (haven't for 10 years now), but I do have ball pythons.  I have 5 different morphs of them, and will start breeding them next year.  I still live in Mayer,AZ, still have 2 small dogs (Freddie and Mali), and 3 cats(Mysti, who's 10 now, Burger, 8, and Baby, almost 3).  I don't drive a school bus anymore, but have a house painting business now, and this is what I should have been doing all along---very relaxing.  I have to remember how to upload pics, because I don't have a smartphone or other device.  And Rafiq, Evie, and the kitties are all lovely, Mestengo.
