"The wind of heaven is that which blows between a horse's ears."
Do you like horses? Wish you had one? Perhaps you are like me in that you have always wanted a horse, but never actually owned one? As a child I used to cry and beg my parents for a horse. Hey, it worked for a puppy! I suppose it never occured to me that it would never fit in our suburban backyard. C was lucky in that she got her first horse as a child and it did actually stay in her backyard for a few days before they moved it to a farm. I actually awakened in the early morning and looked out my window to her backyard and there was a horse there!! In the city! Well, it was not that urban, but definitely not horse country!
So, I never got the horse my grandfather promised me, but I did get to vicariously enjoy the horse-owner life through my teenage daughter who saved her money and bought a horse when she was in high school. Now she is all grown up and lives on a farm with horses and cows and a lovely little filly (I'll call "Ivory") who was born week before last and became ill last Saturday. The diagnosis is a bacterial infection and the pitiful little creature injured her leg on the trip home in the horse trailer, but she is hanging on! So, if you're inclined (like me), to think that the Lord of the universe cares about all His creation, and all His creatures, would you lift a little prayer up to the heavens for Ivory?
P.S. Ivory is a cremello Tennessee Walking horse. The color is the result of the action of two cream genes on a red (chesnut/sorrel) horse. Where one cream gene on a red produces a palomino, two of them create the Cremello. Ivory also has blue eyes!
