Just Us

Remember when it was just us ? When you looked at me… were with me. . . when we’d go for a ride! The bathing, the grooming…or how you’d linger with me at feeding time just to be with me. . . I remember the day I met you, and you brought me home, the…

The Carter Chaos

November 2017 Thirty three….. Thirty three babies… Separated from their mothers, who were all shipped to slaughter….These precious Navajo Reservation faces found themselves on a ‘feedlot’ in Colorado.
