Remember the saying "Never say never"? While accomplishing a couple of firsts, I had to acknowledge the truth of this saying. I will never have a pony....., they are sooooo ornery. I will never do a parade...., all that hurry up and wait. Funny how life likes to whittle us down a notch or two.



I bought my first miniature horse..., does that mean I might as well have got a pony? He is one of the most joyful parts of my life.

I did a parade and even though there was lots of hurry up and wait...., we all had a blast!

We walked with the Autism awareness group. They are all amazing. One of the best questions of the day is one you rarely hear asked. " Where should I touch the little horse?" An amazingly intuitive question don't you agree?

The miniature horse boys did a fantastic job of dealing with all the exciting and sometimes frightening sight and sounds of a parade. It was a first for me and for both of them. I continue to be awed and touched by the trust horses will place in those they love. It is humbling and reminds me not to ask them for more than they can give.
What wonderful little ambassadors the were that day for the power of the horse to bring joy to people simply by being one of God's best creations.

I think we all can learn from the "never say never" saying. I loved the pony I owned when I was 13 but after I began my family I put ponies and horses behind me.
I never dreamed I would be doing what I am now with taking miniature horses to retirement and children homes. Now here I am doing that and enjoying sharing these little horses with others. I love how mobile they are and that they can go places a big horse never could. They have their place and mission too even though we can't ride them we enjoy them in so many other ways.

Once I said, disappointed in people, not horses, that I would never have horses again. Once I thought people my age were crazy to continue riding. Now I not only ride, but own, and even train others occasionally crazy horses.

What is even more important, since I got dealt some reality on this issue, is that I now get to met your minis, and learn what you do, and what joy they and you bring to people.

And I get to be with horses again.
