Meet El Dorado! The soon-to-be father of Liberty Belle's foal!
(It's always good to keep a positive view when it comes to foaling, you know.:)
He is a BEAUTIFUL palomino colored Paint stallion, with a very good build. The man we bought Belle from is picking her up tomorrow morning...ALONG WITH THE OTHER TWO HORSES! We're trying to let our pasture grow, so he will be taking Silkie and Red along with him to keep in his pasture until ours has a chance to take off. I'LL MISS MY HORSES!!! :*(
He will be keeping all three of them for about a month, and hopefully the pasture will grow by then.
Meanwhile, we've got to make sure that Belle is in cycle, or she WON'T get pregnant. Even if the other horses weren't going, he'd be keeping Belle for about two weeks to make sure.
Anyway, I just thought I'd give you an update! The above two pictures are of El Dorado and Liberty Belle.
Enjoy and please keep praying that all goes well!

Today, June 1st, 2009, Barak Obama has issued a proclamation for the United States of America.

THE WHITE HOUSE
Office of the Press Secretary
For Immediate Release June 1, 2009
LESBIAN, GAY, BISEXUAL, AND TRANSGENDER PRIDE MONTH, 2009
- - - - - - -
BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
Forty years ago, patrons and supporters of the Stonewall Inn in New York City resisted police harassment that had become all too common for members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community. Out of this resistance, the LGBT rights movement in America was born. During LGBT Pride Month, we commemorate the events of June 1969 and commit to achieving equal justice under law for LGBT Americans.
LGBT Americans have made, and continue to make, great and lasting contributions that continue to strengthen the fabric of American society. There are many well-respected LGBT leaders in all professional fields, including the arts and business communities. LGBT Americans also mobilized the Nation to respond to the domestic HIV/AIDS epidemic and have played a vital role in broadening this country's response to the HIV pandemic.
Due in no small part to the determination and dedication of the LGBT rights movement, more LGBT Americans are living their lives openly today than ever before. I am proud to be the first President to appoint openly LGBT candidates to Senate-confirmed positions in the first 100 days of an Administration. These individuals embody the best qualities we seek in public servants, and across my Administration -- in both the White House and the Federal agencies -- openly LGBT employees are doing their jobs with distinction and professionalism.
The LGBT rights movement has achieved great progress, but there is more work to be done. LGBT youth should feel safe to learn without the fear of harassment, and LGBT families and seniors should be allowed to live their lives with dignity and respect.
My Administration has partnered with the LGBT community to advance a wide range of initiatives. At the international level, I have joined efforts at the United Nations to decriminalize homosexuality around the world. Here at home, I continue to support measures to bring the full spectrum of equal rights to LGBT Americans. These measures include enhancing hate crimes laws, supporting civil unions and Federal rights for LGBT couples, outlawing discrimination in the workplace, ensuring adoption rights, and ending the existing "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy in a way that strengthens our Armed Forces and our national security. We must also commit ourselves to fighting the HIV/AIDS epidemic by both reducing the number of HIV infections and providing care and support services to people living with HIV/AIDS across the United States.
These issues affect not only the LGBT community, but also our entire Nation. As long as the promise of equality for all remains unfulfilled, all Americans are affected. If we can work together to advance the principles upon which our Nation was founded, every American will benefit. During LGBT Pride Month, I call upon the LGBT community, the Congress, and the American people to work together to promote equal rights for all, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.
NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim June 2009 as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month. I call upon the people of the United States to turn back discrimination and prejudice everywhere it exists.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this first day of June, in the year of our Lord two thousand nine, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and thirty-third.
....Don't you dare tell me that this Nation is taking a turn for the better...BECAUSE IT IS NOT! Look at this! I mean, REALLY look at it! "In the year of our Lord"?! Do you think that the Lord God of Heaven and Earth and RULER of the ENTIRE WORLD WOULD CONDONE THIS?! DO YOU! No. Absolutely NO:
1st Kings 22:46:
"The remnant of the sodomites who remained in the days of his father Asa, he expelled from the land."
"just as Sodom and Gomorrah and the cities around them, since they in the same way as these indulged in GROSS IMMORALITY and went after STRANGE flesh, are exhibited as an example in undergoing the PUNISHMENT of ETERNAL FIRE."
"You shall NOT lie with a male as with a female; it is an ABOMINATION."
"If there is a man who lies with a male as those who lie with a woman, both of them have committed a DETESTABLE act; they shall surely be put to DEATH. Their bloodguiltiness is upon them."
"None of the daughters of Israel shall be a cult prostitute, nor shall any of the sons of Israel be sodomites."
1st Kings 14:24:
"There were also sodomites in the land. They did according to all the ABOMINATIONS of the nations which the LORD CAST OUT from among the sons of Israel."
1st Corinthians 6:9:
"Or do you not know that the unrighteous will NOT inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor SODOMITES...(v10)...will inherit the kingdom of God."
"Therefore God gave them over in the lusts of their hearts to IMPURITY, so that their bodies would be DISHONORED among them. For they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen. For this reason God gave them over to DEGRADING passions; for their women exchanged the NATURAL function for that which is UNNATURAL, and in the same way also the men abandoned the NATURAL function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing ABOMINABLE acts and receiving in their own persons the due PENALTY of their error. And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a DEPRAVED mind, to do those things which are NOT proper, being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, evil; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice; they are gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, without understanding, untrustworthy, unloving, unmerciful; and although they KNOW the ordinance of God, that those who practice such things ARE WORTHY OF DEATH, they not only do the same, BUT ALSO GIVE HEARTY APPROVAL TO THOSE WHO PRACTICE THEM."
"Marriage is to be held in honor among all, and the marriage bed is to be UNDEFILED; for FORNICATORS and adulterers GOD WILL JUDGE."
"...and strangers will be filled with your strength and your hard-earned goods will go to the house of an alien; and you groan at your final end, when your flesh and your body are consumed; and you say, "HOW I HAVE HATED INSTRUCTION! AND MY HEART SPURNED REPROOF!"
..."He who has an ear, let him hear"...(Revelation 2:29.
I know that this is a ton to read...but IT PROVES MY POINT!!! And no one can say AT ALL that "it's from the Old Testament"...Take a look again.
WHERE has this Nation gone?! Where?! Not fifty years ago was sodomy a SHAME and DISGRACE!
Now look! Now we have a "LESBIAN, GAY, BISEXUAL, AND TRANSGENDER PRIDE MONTH"!
And you know what...IT'S OUR FAULT! Yes! It's the Christian's fault! We have just sat by and gone our own merry ways...WHILE THIS PERVERSION WAS TAKING PLACE!!!
The time is QUICKLY approaching where it will be ILLEGAL to speak GOD'S WORD on our streets, and we WILL be persecuted for doing so. Our own PRESIDENT is at this VERY MOMENT working and scheming his vile way to do this...he says, "in the year of our Lord", he says, "God bless America"....he says. He doesn't mean. He has the blood of thousands...MILLIONS of innocent BABIES on HIS hands...the most HELPLESS of Americans are being SLAUGHTERED...MURDERED by the MINUTE.......friends......the blood is on the land, and it is screaming to God for vengeance. God is about to answer this cry; He IS answering this cry. WE ARE BEING JUDGED. God is about to purge the church. It is happening....are you ready? Are you ready to face persecution, imprisonment, and possibly death? ARE YOU READY? ....I know I'm not. We must turn our faces Heavenward and CRY OUT TO GOD to give us endurance in the times that are ahead. We are NOT going to get raptured out of here in some whirlwind of a storm just as the bad times come into play. No. WE WILL BE THERE. THIS generation is about to face something that we can't even begin to imagine. Prepare yourselves in ALL earnestness....know God's word....fight the GOOD fight.
So be it.
God help us.
In Christ ALONE,
