We're Expecting...

...a horse named Ripley!

Emelie, horse crazy since she was 18 months old, found out last week that her dream is coming true. A 15-year-old, bay, quarter horse gelding will be coming to live with us in the next week or two. See more photos of him at Emelie's blog.

We're about to start a new show: "Extreme Makeover: Pasture Edition." Time to get that fence up!

Our verse for this journey has been Psalm 37:4: Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart. Once again God's word has proven to be so true!

Here is Emelie, with buck-a-roo-wanna-be Jacob, just moments after hearing the news.


  1. Certainly got my attention! :) I am so very happy for you guys! Emelie he is gorgeous! Enjoy and we will so enjoy coming up to see him soon. God is good!

  2. what wonderful news! I am sure that Em is thrilled to pieces! Congratulations again on the newest Stumpf "addition"!
