Thankful Tuesday

At the moment I am thankful I don't have a baseball bat to thump this computer with. It is doing weird things this evening. I am tired or rebooting. HOWEVER, that is not really what I am thankful for today. I challenged those who read this to post a thanks every day until Thanksgiving. I promise I did not read Andrea's before I had my thankful thoughts. I am thankful that at 71 I can still ride my horses, muck out their stalls, give riding lessons, walk a mile or more and other stuff. I know people who are younger who are hobbling around (not you Sharon) huffing and puffing and complaining. I want to stand tall and and take advantage of all life has to offer.

I spent half an hour tonight trying to corral Wrangler. He would not let Amelia out of the gate and when I picked up a stick to wave at him so he would let her go, he darted out in front of her. Then we played ring around the barn. Amelia went submissively into her stall. He finally said, oh well, you can catch me now. I put a hay string around his neck and led him back to his pasture and told him he was bad. Its like he shrugged his shoulders and trotted off. Bless his black buckskin heart. He is a stinker.

Life is good.


  1. Bless you for your wonderful thoughts and words!! I am thankful to have met you through this blog!! I am thankful you are a kind-hearted animal lover who can laugh at your horse when he's a stinker!! I am thankful for your opinions stated in my most recent dilemma picking out my stone hearth (ack!). And...I am thankful that my hubby and I are healthy and both have jobs so that we can support our wild and wooly stinkers!! :)

  2. You are so welcome. If I couldn't laugh I would cry and what would that help. Well most of the time anyway.
