Thankful Thursday

this guy brings me such joy!

he makes me thankful i am in his life daily
yesterday was day four on our bridling

i bridled him twice
he was such a good boy!

he took it effortlessly...
like he has been doing it all his life!!!
he gave me the confidence i needed to get the job done

he had a a lot of patience with me today

i love you COPPERPONY!

we will do it again
we will do it everyday
until we both are old pros!

"The Wife" over at Gizzards & Calf Fries
has a beautiful sign posted on her blog today


i think this is a great message for all of us in these
trying times

Hope is a dream in the midst of what can come
Hope gives you a future whatever passed
whatever done.
Hope is a light that breaks through the darkness
that surrounds us
Hope helps us find our way through to safer
loving ground.
Hope fights for you when things get tough
Hope keeps you going when you've had enough.
Hope though dims on times, stays through your sorrow
Hope brings you through by dreaming of tomorrow.
Hope tries to console you when your eyes glisten
with tears
Hope gives you something to keep going
whatever your fears.
Hope is free, beautiful, may fade, but never dies
Hope is always there even if it's light seems
dim at times.


Thank you to "The Wife"

for such a

beautiful word !

Sounds like you are on your way to success. They say with horses, repetition is the key to their learning and understanding. Love the inspiring message of hope...we all need that now!

And I really appreciated the words of hope. Very meaningful for me right now. :)

Dear Thankful Thurs girl: I dont know if you caught it but i put a big old comment on your blog about my bday. Thanks $1,000,000 for your bday wishes. You are still my favorite... right after Pony Girl, anyway.
Is Dusty photogenic or do you have 1000's of crummy pix and just post the best ones? He takes a great photo.

Persistence pays off. I'm glad to hear you are getting out and spending time with your pony. So good for the soul. It's an especially good feeling when you make some progress. Congratulations to both of you!
