“It is ‘Feel Good Sunday’ and our long term readers have brought to my attention that it is time to dust off some of our formerly published equine Christmas stories and start stirring the hearts over this holiday season; so for the remaining Sundays prior to Christmas, Christmas Eve and the 25th of December will be dedicated to sharing tales (tails) from Christmas’ past.
