Daily Smile - Friday.

My Toy Boy !!! My DDH is always threatening to sell my Favourite Boy { Gasp... !!! } but thus far I have managed to steer My Boy clear of this fate... His Racing name was "Pat And Pay" because as Pop says this is all MOST owners ever get the chance to Do... !!! Oh & Pop gave him his racing name too... Nowadays he has the Cushy job of Chaperoning some of our Weanlings each year & keeping them out of trouble... Mind you we do tend to get more than our fair share of the feed @ times so we most definitely are NOT perishing !!! This Poem Sums up Perfectly how much I appreciate PatN's being part of my Life... Smile Territory Indeed.


When your day seems out of balance And so many things go wrong When people fight around you And the clock drags on so long…

When most folks act like children And fill you with remorse Go out into your pasture Wrap your arms around your horse.

His gentle breath enfolds you As he watches with those eyes He may not have a PhD But he is, oh, so wise!

His head rests on your shoulder You embrace him good and tight; He puts your world in balance And makes it seem all right.

Your tears will soon stop flowing Then tension will be eased. The nonsense has been lifted You are quiet and at peace.

So when you need some balance From the stresses in your day, The best therapy you can seek Is out there eating hay!

Hello Helz, thank you for posting The Heart of a Horse.My DD is waiting for major surgery and we have just come home from feeding her horses. How apt, as it is DD's horses that are keeping her going.We read the words together and had tears in our eyes.Warmest Regards Lyn PS I do not think MM's who come along in DD's life have any idea of the bond forged between rider and horse.That will never leave DD.
