From Suits to Boots

While Hurricane Harvey destroyed the tiny map dot Plum Grove, TX.. I had no idea it would change my life from half a country away. I was living a completely different life. I traveled the world as a business executive and my home life was a son, Xander, a cat and two Beagles. My cup was full and sometimes overflowing... After Harvey hit Houston I found myself volunteering with my physician friends. Unwinding from that lead me to youtube and a video appeared of a man coming home to his animals. I wanted to help, I reached out and did just that. That connection came easy and so did the lunch that followed .. eventually I found myself in pastures chasing Paty the pig and running for my life from a goat named Ringo. Together we started an animal Sanctuary and now, over three years later and over 75 animals to care for, I'm still learning all it takes to be a "farm girl". Some days there is not time to switch anything but shoes. This is my journey: This is "From Suits to Boots"

    Thanks for your walk down memory lane because Wow it brought bring back memories for me. My dad used to sing that to me when I was a little girl and I now sing it to my grandkids. I thought he made it up! 😂🤣 No I am just kidding his grandma used to sing it to him. He always saying this in between the two verses. “She couldn’t come out and play It was a rainy day With tearful eye she breathed a sigh And I could hear her say” then he went into the second verse. If my dad was still alive he would be 101. Again thanks!💛

    Dixie needs to go back. Her kick will gravely injure or kill whom ever she targets. Can you imagine how upset everyone will be!! I love Ringo and Pig Trudy and Dixie but it’s not if it happens but when. No one in the littles pasture is a match for a horse or donkey kick. Please put them back with the bigs. Didn’t I see Ivy kick Ringo the other day as well! The littles follow Ringo he is their leader. He is a protector along with Annie , Ernie, Pig Trudy and the dogs. I’m not ragging on you I love y’all too but I can’t stand the thought of seeing one of the littles injured or dead. 💔😢 this is love and concern for all of you not criticism.

    Jami, thank youso much for sharing your beautiful voice with us today! 🎶 😇🎶💞💓 I haven't sang that song in over 50 year's! Back then, my mommy sang it with me.🥰😀💕 She was a strong woman in my life and she was a firm believer in soap 🧼 and sunshine, 🌞 just like your Granny. She kept her house spic and span clean . We had a wood burning stove for heat in our home all the days she was alive, yet you could eat off her floors too, I bet, lol 😁😁. She was a firm believer in letting the children play out in the sunshine she said it helped make us kids grow up strong and healthy. And my parents installed a strong work ethic and my brothers and I as well. I raised my children the same way. You have a beautiful singing voice Jami. I believe that's part of your love language to your family and to us, yet we only experience it in minute amounts, it it very beautiful indeed . It is a gift from God, imho 😇

    I know fur a long time u all have had 2 name's fur one of your feathered friend's and it got me thinking the poor winged man needs his own. Now I thought long and hard about it and came up with a name I think would fit him well (Sroa). Now y'all kan pronounce it however you would like but it's meaning will all be this... The S is for Steve. The R is the second letter in the second word of his first three word name. The O is of course the first letter in the second word of his first three word name The A is for Adam. This way even though one has been lost he will still always be remembered.😊

Thank you and lester and the rest of the family for sharing your lives with us. Y'all just don't understand how much joy you guys and specially the animals bring to my life. If I'm having a bad day I turn on one of y'all's videos and that video can make everything all better

    She’s prob going to stop eating. Bc she’s upset you took her baby. They are not dumb. We had a mare go on Hunger strike until we brought the foal Back. Just give her Ivan and supplement him. It’s horrible you took him. She wanted him so bad.
