It’s the Year of the Horse starting today, January 31st, 2014. Here’s hoping it comes galloping in with

all manner of good things.

And speaking of good things, I just wanted to share with you this story about a horse named Brave Heart who was rescued from slaughter after he was retired as a fox hunter. Humane Society International says this magnificent beast now is living out the rest of his life nibbling on hay and running around his pasture. This is just the type of thing I’ve always wanted to do, but, alas, I don’t have the space to do it right now. Knowing that other people are looking after horses after they retire just makes my heart feel good.

You can read the whole story and see a photo of a happy Brave Heart and his new owner here.

Have a fabulous Friday!
