    Well, other than work- as I only work to pay horse bills, they give me an outlet. When you love an animal the way I do my horses it gives you the ability to give them your all, and that feels good.
    They have also given me back my daughter, because we share the love of them.

    She reminds me that its important to PROVE that I'm always right....

    She reminds me that I do NOT have the biggest butt on the planet...

    She lets me know that I always have a friend to listen to me, a shoulder to cry on, and someone who'll take me flying wherever I want to go when I just need to run away from it all.

    My horses remind me that frustration/anger and even fear sometimes will get me nowhere and it always pays off to be calm, relaxed and look for the joyful parts of things.

    They also always make me feel better and prove me wrong whenever I feel down or I'm just feeling useless.

    That my flaws make me who I am, and not to let fear or imperfections rule my life.

    And anger will get you no where!

    He also believes in me, and is helping me to trust again :)

    Gerronimo pushes all my saddles off the hitching post and keeps a nice layer of dirt on all things within a mile radius, including himself, and Envi makes sure I know exactly when feeding time is. (He doesn't nicker, he doesn't neigh, he screams.)

    J My horses give me a sanctuary to go to. There's nothing more soothing than the smell of the barn, the leather tack in the tack room, fresh hay, sweat on a horse, the sounds that horses make, the tranquility of the atmosphere, the sights going on around my horses and I.

    After a tough day at work, I can't wait to get to the barn and have MY alone time with them. I'm sure you have all heard the saying: Horses are cheaper than therapy, they really are. I can forget my troubles for a little bit when I'm with them. I feel that time stands still when I'm at the barn, and I cherish it. What more could I ask for?

    Maisy gives me serenity. When I'm with her, whether it is on the ground or on her back, I absolutely lose myself and I'm at total peace. I can then go back to "reality" with a much clearer mind and a happy heart.
