I have several show quality poms, an African Grey and a fat orange cat that should have been named Garfield!
I have always been an animal addict! I have owned a macque monkey and a gibon as a teenager! I love to ride horses and have owned several in my younger days.
I made sure that my daughters had riding lessons shortly after they walked, and one is now a professional horse trainer and horse show judge. She still owns a military macaw and yellow naped amazon, and four dogs she competes with in agility.
Of course, I have several fish aquariums...they are more interesting than paintings on the wall!
