I live in Kentucky and have loved horses my entire life, which is closely approaching 50 years! In my opinion, there is nothing better than burying my face in the warmth of a horse's neck and breathing in his wonderful essence! I have had many horses in my life and will have many more.
I also appreciate the kinship and support that horse people have for one another, and with my first post onto this forum I want to ask your assistance for a very special little girl who is also a horse lover.
Mahala is the 10-year old daugher of a good friend of mine. She was born with a medical condition that has rendered her unable to talk, which makes communication a great challenge for her. Mahala has enterd into a photo contest sponsored by her orthodontist. The entry with the most votes will win an IPad. If Mahala wins the contest, the IPad will allow her to communicate much more easily with her friends and family. Can you imagine what it will be like when she types the message, "Daddy, will you saddle up Trixie so we can go for a ride?" I'm getting teary-eyed just thinking about that.
Evern with her medical condition, Mahala possesses a bright and adventursome spirit. She loves her horse, Trixie, so much and she spends every possible moment with him.
Will you help me brighten her life by voting for her photo entry, "Chin Twins" from this link http://contest.gehringortho.com/entries/80390#box-share
