Thanksgiving Redux

Looking back through Blogposts from the past I came across this conversation between Doc and Pippin, and decided to resurrect it. I miss my "boys" so much. I don't think a day goes by that I don't gaze out at their pasture, and wonder about them. I don't regret selling them. It was the right thing to do at this time in my life. I am thankful that they were sold together and that their new owner wanted them as a team, and drives them as a team.

Thank you, all, for being part of my life.
I hope you enjoy the boys' thoughts about the day:

Hay there, Doc.

What do you want now?

You don’t have to be so surly. I just wanted to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving.

What’s that?

It’s a time to be thankful
for everything we have.

Like what?

Well, I’m thankful that we
live in a nice barn with nice pastures.

OK, you’re right, and I kinda like my stall. At least it is cleaner than your’s!

Wait, I can’t help it if I
sometimes mess up my stall. At least my Mrs. Owner cleans it up. I’m thankful for that.

I’m thankful that my Mrs. Owner sometimes keeps us separated so I don’t have to put up with you chewing on me all of the time!

You are being really mean. I was trying to be nice by thinking about things I’m thankful for. You know, I’m thankful that we do get to be together. It would be really lonely without you.

I have to admit that you are right about that one. I hate it when you leave or when I’m taken away from you for a ride.

I’m thankful for the food we get at night. Yum!

I’m thankful for the treats I get when I’m good.

What? You get treats?

Yeah! Maybe you should try being good once in a while and you’d get them too.

Hmmpph. I don’t think I’m going to talk to you anymore.

*Grins* I’m thankful!

Note about photo: This picture was taken the first week I owned the horses. My son and I took the horses out into the common property near our house. We had a lot of rain that year (2009) and the grass was higher than anyone had seen it in years, and higher than it has been since. My son is actually crouched in the grass, holding the lead ropes! I think the horses were very thankful that day!


  1. Happy Thanksgiving! I do miss the "conversations" Doc and Pippin had :)

    Have a great day!!

  2. I would be missing those beautiful boys too. Great photograph! Hope you are enjoying this day and that your pies are in the oven!

  3. I miss those two so much, they are such beautiful horses and you picked up, and described, their personalities so well.

  4. Awwww, miss the boys conversations. Lovely pic, thanks for sharing that memory :)

  5. Happy Thanksgiving to you, hope you had a good day. Loved the repost


What thoughts do you have?

Invincible I am Not

Despite my belief (certainly flawed) that I am invincible and irreplaceable, I find that alas, I am not.  Despite my consistently taking pre...
