What We've Been Up To

Life continues to keep us at a steady pace... full with work, school, ministry, and day-to-day activities. Here are highlights from the past few months...  

Tyler, in IV Tec class, furthering his education as an EMT. Although intense at times, he's appreciated the knowledge and opportunity to learn new skills.

Along with his usual work of trimming and shoeing, Quint has had the opportunity to apprentice and share his equine knowledge. He's thoroughly enjoyed teaching others.

Caring for Wesley and dog grooming continue to occupy my time-- love every moment of both!

Caught ya! :)
Best Buds!
We love to feed the animals together! :)

Andrew had the opportunity to work in Tennessee with his friend, Jonathan, to assemble a large order of lettuce harvesters before the deadline. He learned a great deal, and enjoyed his time on the Dysinger farm.

Our hardware store gives us the opportunity to meet many new people and build relationships with the regulars as we seek to supply the needs of our community.
