Feel Good Sunday: Video ~ Thanks to Deb, Carol, Geri and all who speak for those who cannot

“A personal, and way too long, message thanking all of those who have given so much of themselves in an effort to improve the safety and well-being of our American equines be they domestic or wild. 

Contained within this video op-ed is the historic quote, “I like to talk while I speak”…answering the decades old question of whether or not I am brain damaged; yes, would be your answer or I should use notes next time.  Thank you all.” ~ R.T.

Merry Christmas from the Stable, Past and Present

An excerpt from R.T. Fitch‘s book ~ Straight from the Horse’s Heart: A Spiritual Ride through Love, Loss and Hope

“First published on SFTHH in 2009, ten years ago, this tale rings as true today as it did then.  For me it brings back memories of four legged friends I have lost yet still reside so solidly in my heart.  Two equine souls and one canine, from this story, have crossed the bridge and I feel a twinge of grief each and every time I think of them.  They, all of them, have made such a divine imprint upon my heart and continually remind me to stay the course, don’t ever give up and to share the love that they so selflessly showered upon me.

So on this magical day, we offer up another Christmas story and challenge you to an exercise.  If you have read this before, please, read it again, if you have not, give it a shot.  Stretch your imagination and open your heart, there is magic afoot this day.  What appears to your heart in words, may be closer to the truth than what your mind may perceive.  Feel your warmth, be aware of your special presence and share your love with family and friends.  Let the love roll.  Peace on, my friends, and keep the faith.” ~ R.T.

Feel Good Sunday: Chapter 1 – Living with Four-Legged Children

“Behind the scenes, here at Straight from the Horse’s Heart, are several volunteers who write while others scourer the internet in search of equine related news and articles that will not only be entertaining but of value to our horsey readership. One such individual, Geraldine Bray, works seven days a week with no compensation in an effort to get the news about horses, burros, buffalo, whales, wolves, grizzles, dolphins and any other wild being that is downtrodden by humans out and in front of our readers so that they can have the information needed to make a difference when discussing such topics with family, friends and legislators. Likewise, Chief News Correspondent, Geri, endeavors to locate at least one story a week that might bemuse and uplift our audience as a Feel Good Sunday (FGS) installation so that we can wash our hearts and souls out for one day a week before we wade back into the fray on Monday. This week, I am kindly going to ask Geri to take the day off as I have found the fodder for FGS right within arm’s reach in our own backyard with our wild and wacky four legged charges who never cease to either entertain or amaze me.” ~ R.T.

“Each and every year I have dragged out this excerpt from our first book, with the exception of last year…which I have taken a little bit of heat over. So we bring it back this year and hope that each and everyone of you, two legged or four, have a blessed day celebrating the birth of this most wonderful nation; The United States of America. God bless.” ~ R.T.
