the arrival of Bill at the farm

Bill arrived at the farm on a dark and snowy evening. Its a miracle he fit in this small trailer... Bill is very tall!, Taller than Jim. He is nervous about his new surroundings and this entrance to the barn is to short for him, but he ducked to get in...
The animals are still mourning the loss of dear Pearl and comforting one another. They are getting used to the idea of Bill...

Ang,

Kowboy K said that Bill was huge (and beautiful), but oh wow, he's bigger than I imagined! I was so saddened and sorry to hear of your loss of your great friend Pearl. Hope Bill settles in smoothly for you, and makes some new friends soon in the barn.

I'm typing this while feasting on yummy sparkling-silver-ribbon-wrapped reindeer food! Mmm, MMM! :)

Here's hoping that Bill adjusts quickly to his surroundings and that the other animals adjust to Bill quickly, as well!

I have been reading your blog for some time now. I saw where Pearl was sick. Then that she had to be put down. I am so sorry. I know she will be missed so much. Now I see you have Bill. He is HUGE! I didn't know horses could be so big. My friend up the road has Belgians but nowhere near that size. I hope he works out for ya'll.

Bill is Beautiful. I know Pearl will stay alive in your memories. So now there is Big Jim and Bigger Bill. I hope that Bill adjusts wonderfully into your farm. Emily
