This is one of my pictures I had painted and I edited it tonight,
and added all the roses, changed the tint,
fooled around with it and well it is still my horses!
I watched a show the other night on t.v.
and I was very saddened by what I saw.
I never knew the extent of the wild horses running the range.
It made my heart ache when I was listening to the controversy/
I don't know all the facts, these horses need to run free.
That is my opinion!
Here is a poem I wrote tonight!
It was a long, rough, winter,
Due to the deep snow,
the digging for food was harder than the last few.
There had been freezing rain, that froze over the snow like solid blankets of ice!
We would jump and try to dig, to no avail.
The Spring thaw arrived two days later!
We were happier than we had been in a while,
Now we will have food to access.
Our spirits soared,
we could be horses,
running and playing for hours,
needing nothing but to continue the circle of life.
As i ran to the meadow,
my muscles rippled,
I could hear the pounding of my hooves echoing in the valley,
The fresh air at my face,
I had been captured once before,
Luckily I broke from the fenced in area.
Today I am free, I run, I neigh,
I am with the herd in the wild,
Many of the others have gone,
being taken away in trucks,
we are not sure what happens to them when they are taken
by the men that come in the trucks and guns...
Today we have not seen them,
so we will run in the meadow,
and eat pink flowers,
And we shall live as wild horses do,
In the wild!
I love horses, I love cowboys, I love caring souls that treat the horses right.
In the last few years there have been issues of finding horses and cattle,
that have been badly neglected, starving,
some abandoned in trailers for a couple days
while someone has gone for help.
I had met a lady last winter that takes horses into her barns
and helps them back to health when they come to her when they are so sick.
She was a very interesting woman,
you could tell she was just full of love for them..
Sorry I did not mean to ramble,
I really just wanted to show you the new picture.
Please give all you can to help in Haiti,
even if it is just in prayers.
I watched Oprah today
and it just broke my heart.
I pray for strength, for the people of Haiti,
We can all help in some way!
I learned a lot about Haiti today,
I learned of a very strong courageous people.
I can not remember the mans name on Oprah today
but he was from there and his accounts of how things truly are,
is a reason I can't sleep tonight.
Those tears that rolled down his face were so genuine..
I hope in the days to come that
some of the tears can be replaced by a renewed hope and joy.
I am going to bed and dreaming of meadows with flowers,
where Haiti children can play and feel once again like children,
If I could I would be there and hug them and smell the flowers together.
