Do you like horses? I do! They're awesome! I have my own horse, his name is Danie. He's getting old though. We have 9 other horses; Margaux (Pronounced Margo), Centocar, Zaza, Harvester, Renny, Veva, Silver, and Lucifer. Renny is the sweetest! And also the biggest! He's gonna be a gentle giant!

Horses have always been my best friends and therapists throughout my life, so yeah, I love them.  I have one Arabian at my home right now that is finishing up some healing from an injury in October.  He will never be rideable again, but I am hoping to find him a home as a therapy horse.  I am a certified equine specialist who used to work with therapists doing equine assisted psychotherapy work.  I wish I could afford to keep a horse myself, but I simply cannot afford to fence off all my land right now and cannot afford another winter of feeding on my retirement income.  

Luckily, I do still get to do some therapy and leadership work utilizing horses and can go to the barn where we do therapy and work with any of the horses there when I want.  Unfortunately, it is almost 3 hours away so can't do that often.

It is said that everyone should have both a dog and a cat.  The dog to teach you unconditional love and the cat to keep you humble.  I agree with that and would add that I think one should have a horse to teach you about yourself.

I train professionally and have ridden all my life. I still have my one horse who I've had basically her whole life as well as a mini donkey to keep her company. Feel free to contact me if you ever need help!
 
The only cure for that is hours of television radiation. And this tiny ad:
