    Sorry to hear that, DBA! I hope you're alright. I can't imagine what a struggle it is.

    I just wanna show off my babeh. My birthday is tomorrow and Henny's is on the 23rd. He's growing up so fast! I took pictures with him on Sunday to celebrate his birthday. I walked him the few blocks down to the park and he did so well. We were mauled by people wanting to love on him and pet him. He took everything in stride, even the ducks. Annnd, he even walked on the bridge that's in the middle of the lake!! How did he handle it? He walked SUPER SLOW. I guess that's how he is when he's uncertain. Fine with me, I'd rather have a turtle than rabbit having a heart attack bahaha.

    Thank you, TG! I haven't gotten all of the pictures yet, but that one is by far my favorite so far. :)

    We pay $60 for private lessons, $50 for semi-private (2 in group), and $40 for group (max 5). Lessons run around 1 - 1.5 hours (depending on what we're working on and how focused kid+horse are). Our trainer does basic horsemanship all the way up to Novice World level shows.

    I get a discount if I pay for 6 lessons in advance. We do private lessons currently at a rate of $310 for 6 lessons.

    Hope that helps. :)

    I'm currently at work but checking my phone constantly. My BFF has a friend who is an EMT and volunteer fire fighter in West. He hasn't been heard from since last night. She's worried sick.

    I've only met him once at a party, but it's still hard waiting for the news. It is a very close knit community down there. The only good news is the other EMT she knows is ok. We're holding out hope that this friend alive, they have a few people in hospitals that have not been identified yet.

    Thanks everyone for your kind words and support.
    I will be ok.
    The news about the missing fireman is what we need to focus our prayers and good thoughts on.
    All emergency workers are now on the front lines of our nations security especially since 9-11.
    You all have reaffirmed my faith in humanity by your concern for me and others.
    I have included this forum and this thread in particular as a vital part of my treatment plan for my mental health.
    It is for days like today that I always end with the word Shalom. Donald

    Oh dba, it's hard for those that hear "it" all the time to stay grounded, focused, and positive. "It" can get to ya ..

    We have to have things that keep us grounded. I love to spend time with the animals. My silly chickens, and playful bunnies, and snotty horses remind me that life is good. They live in TODAY .. they don't worry about tomorrow or dwell on the past. A foal can find joy in ANYTHING .. and EVERYTHING is a reason to kick up and run...

    My thoughts are with Boston, and West .. but my heart remembers that most people are GOOD .. and life is precious.

    Love ya brother.

    HM, I hope everything ends up okay with your friend's friend. It's such a scary and trying situation.

    Oh DBA you just make me want to cry and give you the biggest hug! This really is the closest thread on HF, I believe. I could post anything here without being judged, knowing I will fully have everyone's support. -BIG GROUP HUG-

    I also look to my horses to keep myself grounded. When everything is in my life is hectic, dramatic, insane, I look to Henny to quell me. Just looking at him soothes my heart and puts a smile on my face. I hope that, as a leader, I bring some similar comfort to him.

    In the words of Patton Oswald, "I don't know what's going to be revealed to be behind all of this mayhem. One human insect or a poisonous mass of broken sociopaths.

    But here's what I DO know. If it's one person or a HUNDRED people, that number is not even a fraction of a fraction of a fraction of a percent of the population on this planet. You watch the videos of the carnage and there are people running TOWARDS the destruction to help out. (Thanks FAKE Gallery founder and owner Paul Kozlowski for pointing this out to me). This is a giant planet and we're lucky to live on it but there are prices and penalties incurred for the daily miracle of existence. One of them is, every once in awhile, the wiring of a tiny sliver of the species gets snarled and they're pointed towards darkness.

    But the vast majority stands against that darkness and, like white blood cells attacking a virus, they dilute and weaken and eventually wash away the evil doers and, more importantly, the damage they wreak. This is beyond religion or creed or nation. We would not be here if humanity were inherently evil. We'd have eaten ourselves alive long ago.

    So when you spot violence, or bigotry, or intolerance or fear or just garden-variety misogyny, hatred or ignorance, just look it in the eye and think, 'The good outnumber you, and we always will.'"
