A rainbow over a little horse farm in the city limits of Searcy, Arkansas.

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Advantage

We have friends who have lived in the same house for years and  a house which used to be in the country. 

Driving to visit them seemed to take a long time a long time ago.  After all, it was in the country.

Now the city has grown out to meet them.  But they have certain privileges because they are "grandfathered in."  For one thing, they have a lovely horse barn and corral for the horses. 

They can keep a donkey or a horse and still walk to the grocery store.  Their latest pets are chickens.  We rode over to the house and saw chickens roaming free.  They remarked, "They'll come home to roost."  When the rooster starts crowing early in the morning, however, they may have a few angry neighbors calling.

It's a wonderful set-up, the country right in town!  They have found their gold at the end of the rainbow!

Great pic Barbara!  Hard to see Rainbows in the city - too many things in the way of seeing the sky!

Barbara:  I have a girl friend who keeps a donkey in her home... and it's right here in the city.  Unfortunately, that donkey is also her husband.  My guess is they will not continue to be married very long.  Whaddya think ?

Godmother,

James, that's right.  I guess that's why it was rare to be sitting on the porch and seeing this rainbow above the barn.

Karen Anne, in Ft Worth anything is possible.  If he's a good donkey I don't why she should divorce him.  She may have to replace him with just an old "nag."

Michael, blue suits me too!

Nutsy, the horse will be waiting and we'll let you prove yourself by "breaking" him.  We just brought him in from one of those horse-roundups that you read about.  : )

Dear Ms. Godmoma, using an innocent horse to demonstrate the squirrel's bad habits is not in keeping with your character. Ms. Kate www.horses-r-us.net

But jockeys cannot drink on the job. To protect horses and maintain integrity.  Seems like a good idea. I'm sure you agree. All of my other friends do.
