Giving thanks for you, our horses and whatever good we did

Horse in center of herd.

by Marvin Bell

    We need some pines to assuage the darkness
    when it blankets the mind,
    we need a silvery stream that banks as smoothly
    as a plane’s wing, and a worn bed of
    needles to pad the rumble that fills the mind,
    and a blur or two of a wild thing
    that sees and is not seen. We need these things
    between appointments, after work,
    and, if we keep them, then someone someday,
    lying down after a walk
    and supper, with the fire hole wet down,
    the whole night sky set at a particular
    time, without numbers or hours, will cause
    a little sound of thanks–a zipper or a snap–
    to close round the moment and the thought
    of whatever good we did.


We give thanks for you our followers and readers, who care and share and take action, for your love of our horses — those precious and gracious souls — who inspire and move us higher and greater than we may ordinarily go, and for whatever good we did.

From the Staff and Volunteers of the
Int’l Fund for Horses,
And humble Editor of Tuesday’s Horse
— Vivian

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

  3. Wonderful post! I thank you dearly for spreading awareness of the issues effecting the very welfare of our horses and, in doing so, you along with your followers are able to save the lives of animals AND humans. Yes, humans – take the posts about Premarin for example. Education is the gift that keeps on giving, and that education helps individuals to be better informed and to make greater decisions each and every day. Please know that your efforts do not go unnoticed. :)
