I left Sweden for a major reason, and I always disliked cold beds.
Even our fish wear a jacket !
The office today. Wonderful to be able to sit outside, in the sunshine, surrounded by happy horses. That’s Amore!
Volunteering together with my children has always been a joy. I try to do it at least two days a month — do I count all the volunteering hours rescuing animals for our own organization, then we do it every day!
Hands up for America, which is fantastic (many times) with all their different volunteering programs.
You can try new things, get free education, and give back to your community.
When it’s popcorn delivery at my daughters school, it’s a great time to visit her environment. Meet teachers and school friends.
I get another feeling when my daughter tells me about her days, and I am connecting with her stories.
Max had a day off from his school and could join me. Afterwards he told everyone that wanted to listen, he couldn’t wait until he starts middle school.
Little scary, but mostly exiting of course!
This is in an American school, in Germany.
You need good coffee!
Soon, very soon it’s time to bring home the two horses that we are rescuing from southern Italy.
I am so excited! Two beautiful souls that are going to have their well deserved retirement!
Follow, and you will see what I mean!

Everything comes to you when you are ready, and your thoughts are no longer like a ping pong boll game inside your head from doubts. When your thoughts are in peace somewhere else working with something totally different than your dreams.
Our Miracle 26 years old came to us like the biggest surprise ever. I wasn’t looking after a Senior horse. However, we do recall me saying some months ago, when a person asked me why I didn’t ride?–I thought I joked when I answered, ‘I want a very old horse to walk around!”
Little would I have known.
The story that I wrote in my column this Thursday in Swedish, I will absoloutly translate into english, and publish here.
And….. our Senior Sanctuary is becoming true. I want to help as many Seniors as possible to have their last time in life as relaxed and full of love and care as possible.
Together in the stable we got experienced horse people that keeps and eye on our Seniors, and ….. also the best veterinarian team with Veterinarian, Stephanie Spöthl in the front.
We will have more seniors coming up, however, we need you, Friends of AWL, to help us get them up from southern Italy to Southern Germany. Where I, and my team will be ready to give them the best last months/years as possible.

I know I say that about every one I meet. However, this little guy was (is) my favorite. Petting him was like strocking velvet. He jumped right up to my scarfs to check out who the biggest lizard was.
Big fear, I admit and I dont like it. But I admired her from distans. My daughter though petted and fell completly in love with Odot! She was found in a plastic box on the highway. Kind people brought her to the Herpetarium.
A fabulous day together with passionate students at the Reptile Herpetarium/Marine Biology. We learned so much from you all. Thank you!
