Peacefield - A Horse Sanctuary

3 muddy beauties copy

This post is kind of a horse of a different color... a little off the subject of my usual posts, but I've been meaning to write this for a long time. Last autumn I reconnected with a friend from high school, Elizabeth Lorenzen, through the wonders of Facebook. I was fascinated to learn that she had founded a horse rescue. I have always been a lover of horses, so I was really interested in what she was doing. She was interested in what I was doing too, and approached me about developing a line of horse-themed stationery items to benefit Peacefield. In November, at home in Indiana for Thanksgiving, I had the pleasure of visiting Elizabeth and her wonderful facility.
