THANK YOU for Giving and Reading!

This is my second Thanksgiving.  Horse and Man (the blog) erupted on February 4th, 2010.

I wanted to take this moment to thank all of you for reading, commenting, emailing, passing around, forwarding, linking FBing, caring and donating over the last year and a half.

This blog is great fun for me and I totally appreciate your support.  Without you, I’d be lonely and blogless.

So today, all of the Horse and Man blog staff are here to give personal thanks.  (I ran around this morning and asked everyone to pose no matter what they were wearing.  No one got to fix their hair or spiff up.  Sorry.)


Sirdar, office chair warmer and pile sitter.


The 'no longer feral' kitten, Spock. His job is to climb really high in the barn.


Bagheera and Lady Jane Grey kittens. Bagheera's job is to be super affectionate and LJG's job is to look pretty and talk a lot.


This is Sally, Spock's sister. Her job is to be really cute.


This is SkittyKitty. She is a phantom Chupacabra kitty. She works the barn at night.


This is Buff. He is HUGE and lords over the barn. Right now, he is very upset that there are so many kttens on his turf.


Nomar and Shiva. It is impossible to take photos of these two. They hate the camera. Nomar's job is to be my shadow. Shiva is the official Greeter.


This is sweet, wonderful, elder Dex. His job is to stay with me for as long as he is able.


Beautiful Girl... always willing and hopeful. She loves to hang with me, she loves being groomed, sung to and going on walks (sounds like an online dating profile...). Her job is to calm Finn, her brother. He's excitable, she isn't.


Wrigley and Finn. Wrigley's job is to be the rambunctious kid clown who borders on being irritating at all times. Finn's job is to pack me around and to keep Wrigley in line. Finn works 24/7 as Wrigley monitor.


Dodger, Norma, Remi and Slick. Dodger is the eldest. His job is to keep all the geldings in their place. Norma writes her own blog. Remi is the Mustang who tries so hard to communicate with me. Slick lives to make trouble.


Mamma Tess, the Grand Dam and matriarch. Sam, the untouchable wild mustang, is the youngest mare. They both watch over the herd.


This is BLM Rojo who was wild less than 6 months ago. He has no job except to learn about humans - me in particular.


Last but not least, Beautiful Gwen. Her job is to be perfect on the ground (which she is) and to de-fruit the apple tree.

    I forgot today was your Thanksgiving…ours was last month.

    We have a 1 year old cat named Alice that’s my little office “assistant”. Once I get up from my chair she just jumps right in.

    Dawn, what a gorgeous family of critters. Love your kitty Sirdar, looks just like my cat Kitty (I know very original name, huh?) Tell your fur babies they all look lovely for their camera shots. Did you say Norma has her own blog? What is it, I must have missed it somehow!
    Hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!!

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family. And THANK YOU for the Horse and Man blog. Without it we also would be lonely and blogless as well as much less informed, entertained, impressed, and fulfilled. Not only do you bless us all each day with your posts, but you allow all of us to feel like we make a difference in the lives of all of the animals you bring to our attention each month with the Bucket Fund!!
    We have so much to be thankful for.
