A Sad Story.

Recently I was perusing the blog world looking for some potential horsey type people to hook up with. In this process I came upon a site so vile that I was sickened when I read just a small part of it. It was titled something like 'I Hate Horses' and it gave all the reasons why and all the abusive things that should be done to horses which I won't repeat. It even included pictures of said abuse which I am having trouble getting out of my mind. Our horses are part of our family and receive tender loving care at all times. They have personalities and enjoy attention and love showered on them. Even our little rescue pony (pictured) that suffered abuse at the hands of the former owner is learning to love and trust us and will put his head on our shoulder and enjoy some ear scratching and treats.

Why would anyone feel so strongly about disliking one of God's most beautiful creatures so intensely that they would publish this horrendous site? I just can't seem to get my mind around this, it just won't compute in my head. I don't particularly like spiders but I certainly wouldn't want to abuse them. If I find one in the house I always get a piece of paper and scoop it up and put it outside rather then killing it.

I have decided the way for me to deal with this issue is to pray daily for these people and ask God to change their heart and mend whatever experience in life has left them with this intense hatred. I don't know what else to do and I don't want to go on with this ache in my heart for these undeserving horses that are being subjected to this torture.

I am asking all of you dear bloggy friends to put this on your prayer list. I know we all have bigger and more important things to pray for but this is on my heart and I ask for your support and maybe we can make a difference in this matter.

Thanks for listening!

This is one reason I know longer search for blogs because there are some weird and sick people out there.
I rely on word of mouth recommendations. That's it!!
It's harder when you're first starting to know where to look.
I know you're just starting out blogging, feel free to email me with any questions or help that you might need. I don't have all the answers, but can help in some ways.
I will say a prayer for the people in question. Very sad..

How sad and pathetic is it that some people need to abuse poor helpless creatures who do no harm to anyone or anything. I know it is said that "it takes all kinds to make a world" but this kind the world can do without.
