A Bit of History

Big Smooch copyA bit of History here, since this is my attempt to gravitate into the ever-growing world of internet communications….About 4+ years ago, I had one of those moments that brings you back to childhood. As a kid, when you are playing a game of tag or some other athletic endeavor, and it begins to go awry, one person or other will call out “DO OVER”, and thus, the game begins again. That was what happened in my life at the age of 38. I found myself going through divorce with 5 horses, a dog and cat in my care and no where to live and no money in the bank. I yelled out as loud as I could….”DO OVER”!!!!!! With a small loan in hand, I purchased a plot of land in the middle of nowhere (as visitors often tell me), erected a 28 foot diameter tipi, set up a large corral for my horses and lived like a pioneer for over 2 years….no cell phone, no electricity, and no bathroom (other than a shovel), with only a pocket full of hope and a huge commitment to my beloved animals that I would always keep them by my side and be their only caretaker.

It’s been over 4 years now and the stories are ready to tell. Life on the range with livestock and wild critters, funny stories and all the trials and tribulations….stay tuned…

Happy Trails,
Leslie Anne Webb

  1. You have come a long way, Leslie, over those years.

    Although it was painful for both you and your four legged charges, all of you are better for it. They now know the breadth and depth of your devotion and commitment to them and you have tested your own personal fortitude and come out stronger on the other end.

    Each of us has a destiny to fulfill and the stronger you are the sooner you are able to realize it. I believe that you have a pretty good idea where your priorities now lie.

    Thanks for all you do for the horses, and the example you set for we two legged types.

  2. Well I love your art, your heart and can closely relate to living “little house on the prairie” as you did.

    I have no idea who you are, but you are everything to your beloved four-legged friends, I’m sure.

    Keep doing what you’re doing. Can’t wait to read more of your story.
