Mother-Love


Isn't that sweet? Motherhood can be so tender.

As a life-long horse lover {okay, so I've always loved ALL animals, but horses have been at the TOP of the list 4-ever}, it's hard for me to go too long in between ANIMAL-focused postings.

Today, I'd like to ask that anyone so inclined ... consider giving to organizations that serve our Equine friends ...

Not that I'm expecting birthday gifts this year {to celebrate my 50th}, but if anyone were to ASK me what I'd like ... THIS is what I'd be asking for ... contributions {in any amount} to organizations like the Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary at www.gwtc.net/~iram/index.html

OR to Ever After Mustang Rescue in Maine at http://www.mustangrescue.org/

OR visit the site for the Bureau of Land Management that features their work with wild horses and burros at http://www.blm.gov/wo/st/en/prog/wild_horse_and_burro/how_can_i_help.html

And thanks to my friend Vickie, I can add this one - After The Finish Line -

A group that provides financial support / rescue assistance for thoroughbred horses once they leave the track {and for everyone who knows my history with the Del Mar Race Track and the horse racing industry, you'll know right away why I am including this link}: http://www.afterthefinishline.org/

So - not that anyone's asking - but THAT's what I would consider a beautiful, meaningful gift.

Okay, so maybe not for me, but for ANYONE on your giving list that loves animals.

Please consider the horses this giving season.

I thank you.

Davi~ Check out this AWESOME program just outside of Nashville near the historic town of Franklin. I was privileged to observe one of the lessons this past Wed. where my sister volunteers. The horse/child connection is a beautiful thing, and these SPECIAL kids are amazing!
Thought you might enjoy this...
