Are you sure there's no more...

We just finished up the last of our candy cane stash from Christmas. At first he didn't know what they were or liked the taste but learned quickly they were a yummy treat. This is Chances are you sure we are out of peppermint face. Well, okay then what else you got?  I'm a treat monster and I'd love anything you want to give me.

When I rescued him I did so knowing I was helping to save one, to make a small difference. Funny how we think we're helping an animal when perhaps they are really helping us.

The Joy this guy brings me everyday is incredible.  I am so lucky and thankful I get to work from home. I take a two hour daily break from my job and spend the time outside.  Soaking in the weather, fresh air and playing with Chance. I always look forward to lunch time, they never seem to come fast enough.

Life is SO good!

    1. Yes I know I created the treat monsters over here. I don't mind though and LOVE the greetings I get from everyone when they see me coming. The girls are super loud and funny, the dogs do a treat dance and Chance knickers and get the crazy lip thing going. #super blessed.

  5. my gelding loves peppermints. some of the stables seem to use them to call horses in from the field - by rattling the wrappers. :)

    1. Hi Tex
      You could never tell he did't like them a year ago that for sure. So true the wrapper noise is all you need to get them come running. I spent some time visiting your blog last night really love your photos. SO so good. Are you on flickr to or only meme's?

  6. He's so handsome! My horse in high school used to love peppermints, but my horse now prefers carrots or apples.

    1. Thanks Lisa
      He is a total treat monster and likes anything now. In the beginning he didn't know what it was, although you couldn't tell today... loves it.

      I saw your guy, he is awesome! Loved the photo of you and your son, so cute.

      Have a great day!

  7. Wonderful post, and I could not agree more! I think I'll head out into the barnyard right now and remind all the animals how much they mean to me using our language of love - treats!

They do like the small peppermint horse treats! have a fabulous Friday and weekend.. -Tammy
