THIS POST WAS WRITTEN IN 2010 – HORSE AND MAN’S FIRST HOLIDAY SEASON! I FELT THE EXACT EMOTIONS STILL APPLY TODAY – 5 YEARS LATER. And, I thought it was very interesting how the animals change over the years…
THANK YOU FOR BEING A PART OF OUR LIVES AND HAPPY HOLIDAYS!
ORIGINALLY POSTED 12/24/10
I wanted to express my extreme gratitude to all of you readers…
You see, I sat down one day in February to write a blog about a canker cure I had found. I was so jubilant over this discovery, I wanted every horse person who Googled “equine canker” to hopefully come upon my notice and learn what I had learned! The problem was that I had no idea how to write a blog or construct a blog or any of that.
So, I got a book on blogging and set up HORSE AND MAN.
After I wrote that first blogpost, an odd thing happened… I wrote another. And then it happened again… and again… until it became a part of my daily life. It became a part of me.
10 months later, this little blog has over a million hits a month from countries as far as Kazakhstan – all because of YOU.
And, the Bucket Fund, which was started in May, has provided relief for very needy horses. All from YOU.
Every day, I am filled with disbelief, wonder, and awe. Awe in the power of the internet. Awe in this community of benevolent strangers. Awe in the knowing that we can make a difference in the lives of our equine partners.
Please know that I appreciate every time you read what I’ve written. Please know that I read everything you write to me.
From my heart to yours, THANK YOU for allowing this voice to come into your lives. I’m already eternally grateful.
On that note, all my furry buddies were standing at attention this afternoon, ready to send their Holiday Cheer! So, I brought out my camera and captured every fuzzy mug here – and also a few that have passed but are always near.
Happy Holiday, everyone!
I cannot forget…
