Annex Suspended’s Custom Sheep Dog Mobile In Motion

Just wanted to show this off! This custom mobile is amazing and I’m proud to call Michelle my partner. Michelle created this mobile and needle felted all of these pieces for a local family. She even made the dog look exactly like the family’s Australian Kelpie. Crazy stuff.

Views Of Fernie : Miniature Horses At The Old Barn

miniature horses in fernie bc - old montane barn

We needed a fun morning adventure on Monday morning so I took the kids and their bikes to the bridge along Coal Creek Road and introduced them to the miniature horses Sher, Daphne and Cowboy. Phoenix, being almost 4, loved them and wanted to stay all day. It was a struggle getting them away from the barn so we could go home…and then the cats came out.

The owners of the horses don’t want anyone coming by with treats but visiting the horses and giving them a good bum scratch was definitely encouraged. We will be back!
