My Belated Thanksgiving Post

Hi, everyone!  I hope you all had a fantastic Thanksgiving.  I've finally stopped feeling sorry for myself (about canceling my vacation with my family and my surprise road trip due to stomach flu) so I figured I would write a post about what I'm thankful for.  About time huh?

Chrome and Faran sharing their salt block.   Look at Chrome's tongue lol!

So since this is my horse blog I'm going to list the horse related things that I am thankful for!

1.  I think the biggest one is Chrome!  He may only be half Friesian, but he's still a dream come true.  I'm thankful to have him in my life and that he is healthy and happy.  I'm thankful for how sweet, confident and curious he is.  I'm thankful for how patient and cooperative he has been with our training.

2.  I'm thankful that we were able to rescue (using the term loosely since he wasn't really in any danger by the time we came across him) Faran.  I'm thankful that he trusts us enough to let us pet him, lead him and do his feet.  I'm thankful that I have all the time in the world to continue to gain his trust.  I'm thankful that he is healthy and happy.  I'm thankful that he's my big, black, hairy fairy tale horse even if he isn't a Friesian.  :D

3. I am thankful that we found Led Zeppelin when we did and that he has been such a wonderful companion for Chrome and taught him how to be a horse..... or donkey lol!!  I'm thankful for his silly braying, sweet personality and adorable donkey ears.  I'm thankful that he is happy and healthy.  As with Faran I'm thankful we have the all the time in the world to gain his trust.

4.  I'm thankful that we were finally able to get our barn fixed and that the insurance company paid for it.  :D

5.  I'm thankful for the Aussie saddle that we got for a really good deal on sale so that I can ride Chrome.  :)

6.  I'm thankful for my awesome husband who never, ever complains about the horses and adores them almost as much as I do lol.  I'm thankful that he supports me in everything equestrian related that I want to do.  I'm thankful for the pictures and videos he takes of me riding Chrome.

That's all for now!
