“We have been sharing the works of others as we gallop towards the festivities of the 25th but today someone sent in a personal request for one of my writings; so out of respect for this fine advocate I will rerun this piece, today. It is a bit of a read but I believe it is well worth the time. This story comes to you from our book and the blog’s namesake, Straight from the Horse’s Heart, and is one that is very special and personal to me, for you see, I wrote it for me…to give me strength, to give me hope, to lighten my soul…so I share it with you today and sincerely hope that it gives you a little more fuel and incentive to ‘Keep the Faith’. A gift from me to you. Best to all!” ~ R.T.
“A kind reader sent this link to me and yes, we know it is a commercial…but it is a commercial that is centered on horses and the love that they bring into our lives. Besides my love for horses I really think that stagecoaches are cool, snowmen and women are hot and yes, we even once had an account with Wells Fargo. Enjoy as we ramp up for the week of Christmas and New Year’s joy!” ~ R.T.

“Traditionally, at Straight from the Horse’s Heart, we have inserted Christmas stories into our normal December “Feel Good Sunday” additions as we march towards the 25th. Historically most of those stories had been authored by me; recycled from previous years or excerpts from our books and magazine articles. […]

A Christmas reflection by R.T. Fitch ~ pres/co-founder of Wild Horse Freedom Federation It just doesn’t get any better than this! It is a special Christmas for me this year, simply put; I am home. Due to my rotational, international schedule my paying job finds me on the […]
“First published on Christmas Day in 2009; the characters have changed but the message still rings true to this very day. The roundups must stop so that we can appropriately care for and manage, if needed, our national treasures on their rightful land. At Wild Horse Freedom Federation we offer the gift of our continued fight in support of the Wild Horses and Burros to live free with their families on their promised public land. Merry Christmas!” ~ R.T.
“Today is the last ‘Feel Good Sunday’ before Christmas 2014; a magical day indeed, and for me the day bears great significance as I am home and will remain here over the holidays as it has been several years since we have experienced such a luxury. With that said, I have resumed my duties of making dinner for the boys in the barn and feel the warmth that their souls and spirits bring to our lives. Being that I am still suffering jet lag I have not sat and contemplated their essence but still they have managed to brush a few cobwebs away from my aging brain. And today, we share with you a story that I wrote some years ago after spending a special evening in our former barn with the same souls, with some sadly departed, that bring us joy today. You can take this tale with a grain of salt or you may kindly grant me a little bit of literary license but none the less, our equine companions have a story to tell if only we will slow down and shut up long enough to listen. Enjoy this day my most special and valued friends. Keep the faith.” ~ R.T.
