I posted this over on the worship board, because it has to do with answered prayer, but i realized that there is alot of horse people, and animal lovers who may enjoy it here. So i copied and pasted it: I had something really neat happen over the weekend. It's kinda hard to explain the whole story, but i'll do my best because it was such a blessing to me!! If you've read my profile you will know i have horses and love them. 6 years ago i had bought a three year old Arab stud, He had a very sweet loving personality, but was also very hyper, and super sensitive. After realizing he was too wild to remain a stud, i gelded him and started to work with him off and on between having kids, and being unwell. We made very slow progress, but we were making progress. Meanwhile my family was continally telling me to get rid off him. But i bonded with the horse very strongly, he represented so much to me, good and bad. I can't go into all the details because it would be a novel. Working on the ground i got to the point that horse trusted me and would do anything for me. But I could never carry it over to the saddle, I could ride him in the round pen, and yard, i even took him on a trail ride once away from home. But he was always like an overwound rubberband. I would become anxious, and he would feel it, and think he lost his leader. Plus, he was still a bit in stud mode, i had some mares, that he "took" care off, and i think he thought i was one of his mares, once he tried to protect me, from a friends gelding. But the riding experience became too stressful, and i have my horses to release anxiety, even tho we were still making very small baby steps forward, I finally decided i was never going to change his basic temperment, to suit my riding needs. My dad offered to trade with me, for there older Quarter horse they wanted to retire, that is very broke, but still a fun ride (no deadbeat) trustworthy, but not an affectionate people horse. So i closed my eyes and let go of the horse i loved sooo much, because i finally admitted we were not well matched, i was never going to have his energy, it would alway be a struggle with us. Well, anyways my horse ended up going thur the sales barn. And ever since (it's been two years) I have worried about him and wondered where he was. I even tried to find him once. I just wanted him to be okay, and find the right person, i always believed in him, and new he had alot of untapped potential. And i prayed about it, when ever i started worrying he was in some kill pen, or being abused by someone who wouldn't understand him. Well it's been two years, I got a letter in the mail on Friday, it was a lady asking if i had owned this arab, and it was my horse!! She has had him for a month, and got him from a place that uses horses for the handicapped, he was to hyper for there program. Get this, she's an arabian endurance rider, she rides at the national level!!! She took my horse on his first 25 mile ride this sat. and he won rookie high point, 97 point out of a 100!!! She is perfect for him!! I talked to her on the phone, she is a high charged super energized person! Perfect fit! His papers are missing that's why she was trying to locate me. She only had a photo copy with my name on it. I checked into the arab assoc. to see if his paper had ever been transfered and if someone was using them on another horse (that happens) His papers are still in my name, i can request a dupicate copy and sign them over to her!!! Wow That's so incredible to me, i just bawled when i found out my horse was safe and with such an incredible individual. That was answer to prayer!!! I'm floating! Oh-get this, I'm in MN and the letter came from MAINE!! She will be sending me pictures, and i told her, that now that she owns my horse, she's stuck with me.
