I've owned Pumpkin since December 21st, 2002 when she was given to me. But, as I see it, it's more about a friendship, rather than about an ownership. You can own a thing but you can't really own Pumpkin with her very own mind. That's why she can enjoy so much freedom of what she wants, and that's the way I will always feel about her, and admire her enormous desire for life despite all the pain she has been through.
Pumpkin is currently at ♥New Paradigm Ranch, LLC♥, in Gardnerville, NV, a wonderful place with wonderful people, where every God's creature must be happy and where they take a good care of all animals, including Pumpkin. Thank you very much for everything, Jeannette! Your ranch will always be a very special place for me. You know best why... My thanks also go to Carmen and Bruce for taking a good care of the whole ranch.
I think Pumpkin must be happy here, in her new shelter (see the panorama picture below; first stall on the left side from your view) because she didn't have anything like that when we met her for the first time. Her shelter used to be a place under a tree where she was standing the whole night in both good and bad weather... Hopefully, one day I shall have my own house with Pumpkin in my back yard... After all, she has always been considered a member of our family.
