Welcome home!

The lady in the picture with Dakota and Ginger is known to the horses as "The Guardian". The Guardian makes sure that everything is exactly how it should be. She also gives Mushboy pointers about things and helps him learn things. Good thing because Mushboy listens to The Guardian and sometimes isn't so good about listening to the DOR-kids and their parents you know.

The Guardian had to been gone for a bit and we all missed her. We found out how hard The Guardian works, it took four people to cover all of the chores. While the substitutes did a good job, they just aren't quite the same. Two to three times a day The Guardian talks to all of us, gives us all a pat, makes sure we have all of our favorites around. The substitutes were a bit slack about all of those things, not everyone got talked to, patted and I was missing a few of my favorites. We did all get checked and taken care of, it was just that extra special touch that was missing.

I didn't realize how much I looked forward to seeing The Guardian each day until she wasn't there. It dawned on me that I need to appreciate my friends every day and let them know how much they mean to me. We all need to do that...it will make the world better too!

Here is to The Guardian, I know that my life is better because of her. We are glad you are home.

Enjoy your day and don't forget to hug your DOR

My former horse's guardian was named Eileen. She was the guardian, helper and all around good girl for everyone at the stable. My horse went to a new owner many years ago, but I held on to my saddles (just in case) until two days ago. I gave them to the stable and asked if they could find them a new home. There must be a girl (or boy I guess) that is just starting out with horses and needs them. It was a sad day to let them go, but moving them with no horse in the future just didn't seem right. - Margy
