Meet the Bii brothers from Eldoret, Kenya! That's right, Coolhorse made it to Africa! These three precious boys are the sons of Francis and Consolata Bii. Matt and I have gotten to know the Bii's through the Christian Relief Fund, located here in Amarillo. Francis and Consolata live in Eldoret...they are a truly amazing couple. Francis serves as the program coordinator for all of the projects being done through CRF in Kenya. He is building churches, building schools, sharing God's word, digging water wells and so much more.
The Singletary Pea is a plant commonly found in our Texas pasture lands. It can be found in the southern United States from New Mexico to the East Coast and along the West Coast in California and Oregon. This innocent appearing plant has a pink bloom and is in the legume family. Historically, this plant was introduced through use as a green manure and was even used as a cool season forage, but now we know better. While the plant's vegetation is innocuous, the seeds can pose a threat to livestock, and horses are especially susceptible.
