Diamond Girl or Not…

Some say diamonds are a girl’s best friend. For some, however, receiving a gift with four legs, large teeth and somewhat protruding yet gentle eyes would be the dreamiest gift of a lifetime!

Did you guess the special gift some girls prefer over precious diamonds?

You can spot this gift grazing peacefully in a pasture, a few are specially bred and trained to win over at the racetrack and some, earn their keep as part of the farm or rodeo circuit staff members.

A nice horse

A cowgirl dream gift: Gimme a horse, not diamonds, fer Christmas!

For some girls, on every Christmas wish list made, the only gift we asked for, but never saw under the tree–ever–was the gift of a horse.


Silly of us to ask.

“The essential joy of being with horses is that it brings us in contact with the rare elements of grace, beauty, spirit, and fire.
