Here we are arriving and being greeted by what Denny thought was the BIGGEST dog he had ever seen! I knew better though - it was a horse and her name is Yonkie. She is 17 years old found her forever home at the retreat after she was adopted though the New Vocations Racehorse Adoption Program. She was originally a pacer horse and her official name is Yonka Doodle Dandy but everyone just calls her Yonkie. She wanders freely all over the property and is very friendly. YES - the Dweeb was scared of her :) At night time she has her own special stable she goes back to.
The cabin we had was very spacious and had everything we needed! It even had a huge two person jacuzzi which we stayed well away from because it is really just a fancy name for a B.A.T.H and we didn't want to give Mom any ideas. One thing Mom really LOVED was the swing on the deck and we spent a lot of time sitting there listening to the wind chimes and the birds.
Something we thought was pawsome was we had our own special table and waiting on it was a place mat with bowls and a big bag of cookies with OUR names on it ! Mom said because it was Denny's birthday and a special weekend - he could come off his diet have some of the cookies. Of coarse he was a bit scared of everything the first day and didn't want to eat any but she
