So, when I got home, I opened the box. To my surprise, there was a pair of cowboy boots, a horse tote bag, a hair clip, a picture of a horse and a girl and a card with a check for $100!!!
I read the card and discovered it was from Polly, a lady we gave our halflinger mare, Mitzie, to a year ago. Polly had been the original rescuer of Mitzie when she was practically abandoned in a pasture. She had donated her to the Fowler Center, a camp for handicap kids. When the Fowler Center decided to sell their horses, Polly let us have Mitzie. So, after enjoying Mitzie for just under three years, we gave her back to Polly and her daughter, Clare for them to enjoy.
In the card, Polly says Mitzie is doing well and is enjoying her life with seven pasture buddies.
Thank you, Polly and Clare, for thinking of me!! I will enjoy all your gifts!
