The Story Behind the Photo: An Officer and His Horse

“As time slips through our fingers like grains of beach sand we are quickly brought around to yet another “Feel Good Sunday” installation.

Today, I would like to share with you a favorite of mine; a picture that speaks a thousand words. Being married to someone, and friends with others, who share their lives though the lens of a camera this particular story makes my eyes leak and tends to push me towards being a tad sappy, today. But that is why we are all here; for the love of our equines be they domestic or wild.

If your eyes begin to blur and a tear runs down your cheek don’t panic if a family member notices your moment of introspection…it’s okay to have a heart, to feel and to love and today’s story shows that quite clearly in a simple black and white photo.

We dedicate today’s story to all of the four-legged public servants that protect our citizens, both here and abroad, from the dangers and evils that attempt to disrupt and destroy this great land that we call the United States of America. Many times their sacrifices go unnoticed and unrewarded.

This will not happen on my watch!

Keep the faith my friends!” ~ R.T.
