His name is Rene Giffen. Rene first heard about us some years ago and he promptly came out to investigate while we were on the trail. He rode in the wagon with me for a couple of days and swore he’d be back … once he got a horse. Well, it seems the right horse never came along, and then “life” got in the way so Rene has not ridden with us since, but he saw my plea on-line and has responded.
Rene is single, 56 years old and a very social person. He’s a pro trucker (with a clean abstract — hooray!) who lives on his own farm (though he doesn’t farm it) and has 4 donkeys, 5 dogs and 2 cats for company. He’s self-employed, hence the ability to take time to come with us. His fondest wish right now is to get a couple of reindeer (yes, really! Reindeer!) and a Santa sleigh! Hmmm … I wonder why? *grin*
We don’t have any reindeer for you to drive, Rene, but we sure appreciate your generous spirit! Welcome to the ride.
