H is for Horses

By Katie Shaw

I was totally meant to have this letter on this fine Tuesday. Horses. Horse was the first word that came to mind when I thought of the letter H. And what could be better for this cowgirl?

Horses were once the main form of transport (sometimes, I still wish this were true). For me, horses are the greatest listeners. They don’t talk back or judge you, they simply listen and give you sweet nuzzles (if you’re lucky).

This is my bud Whiskey and I after riding in the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo opening parade.

Whiskey and I again, but this time hanging out in Arkansas with our best buds Carson and Patches.

And this is the best horse in the entire world. Crawford was my most trusty steed, but now he’s grazing in greener pastures. Rest in peace, my love.

These horses have brought me some of the greatest joy in my life.
