Let’s Go to the Horses!

13 03 2010

My dear friends – known and unknown, I’d like to introduce you to my special friends.  My “Big Buddies” are Angie’s horses with whom I have the wonderful priviledge of working with at horse therapy.  They mean the world to me and have been an amazing stimulant for my brain healing (TBI).  My “Little Buddy,” my service dog, Windsor, arrives in less than 2 weeks!  YIPPEE!!!   We are still raising funds to cover Windsor’s costs.  (Go to “Donations” for more info.)   

If you like to dance or just like to watch, all are welcome to a Benefit/Charity Dance to raise funds for Windsor and me on Saturday, March 20.  More info is on the “Put on Your Dancing Shoes!” post.  It’s just after this one.
