We had spent the afternoon in front of her wood burning stove watching old black and white movies and sipping hot tea with honey. It [...]

June 16th, 2016|Categories: Community|

2008 Thoroughbred Rosa is a trip. She’s smart, funny, kind, beautiful, and understated. Opinionated but always calm. She’s bold, curious, and a social butterfly. She’s classy. She would rather meander and watch the scenery than work. She's Ferdinand the Bull and his flowers. She puts it in park when she’s bored and nothing will move her. [...]
