For many years, my life revolved around horses. They were my hobby as much as my way of paying the bills. Living in the city, I didn't get to live on a horse farm. My parents didn't have a lot of money.
When I turned 9 years old my father surprised me with a mixed breed cattle horse. I made a promise to my little horse as a little girl that I would have a place for him someday where he could roam free in the bluegrass. For us Kentuckians, we put a lot of pride in our limestone soil and perfected livestock.
I was 25 years old when I saved enough money and took a chance on a little farm that I call my own. I could never trade living here in God's country for anywhere else. I made it and that is what hard work and saving every last dollar and living within my means has brought me.
