Goodbye, HM

*I posted this on Facebook and Instagram in early June, but thought it was also important to share here. On the afternoon of March 31st, heaven rolled out the red carpet and set out a velvet cushion and a silver platter of peppermints for Her Majesty, Hochmut – the most perfect “chestnut mare in a… Continue reading Goodbye, HM
