Best Gift Ever!
What is the best gift you’ve ever gotten for the holidays? I certainly know my favorite!
A horse of course!
Twice I have received a horse for Christmas. My first pony was given to me by Santa when I was 8 years old one snowy Christmas morning. She was the best first pony! I learned to ride throughout my childhood with her and finally sold her to another little girl when I was a teenager. I had outgrown her and it was time for her to teach another little girl how to ride.
This year my husband arranged for Santa to bring another amazing equine gift, and she is a beautiful registered gray Paint mare named Cody. She is wonderful and I love her so much! I can’t wait until this rain stops so I can go riding!
We also added another horse to the farm this Christmas…a sweet old chestnut Quarter Horse gelding named Money. He is the perfect “babysitter” type of horse for the girls! We are so fortunate to have found some of the best horses around and had them delivered to our house by Santa for Christmas… 😉
I must say that receiving a horse for Christmas is truly special, but giving a horse to someone is so rewarding and special. Seeing the kids’ faces light up on Christmas morning this year was one of the most heartwarming moments of my life.
