Update and a prayer/good juju request for a friend


Judge just denied AH's motion for protection (which would seal the documents) Step one - check. Thats good news. On another note I have an ask for some prayers. A dear friend of mine has a daughter now 20, who was physically abused/assaulted at 17 by a boyfriend. After much court activity she will be going this month to give her victim impact statement. Please pray for this amazing young woman. I can only hope that the words come to her in the moment and that nothing is left unsaid so she can have closure. She will have amazing support with her that day, just asking you guys support her from wherever you are. Hope everyone had a lovely thanksgiving!

Good to hear things are moving along Dawn. Also sending good juju to your young friend. That sounds horrific.

What do you have going on in your life that is just yours and positive?

Well if I can brag for a minute --- I took in for a friend a 17 hand hanoverian (big horse). I have been rehabbing his poor hooves for months, his back feet are finally perfect and his front feet are coming along nicely, he is not lame, he is learning to be a "real horse" meaning he is getting exposed to all sorts of scary things and learning to trust. He spent 2 weekends ago with a group of youth from the juvenile justice system. That is all possible because of my work getting him back into health and working on trust. Everyone thought this guy was dangerous. I never thought he was dangerous, he was just in pain and insecure. So proud of this boy and me for trusting my gut over others opinions.

I had a long connection with a so-called "dangerous" horse where I used to train horses. This guy kept getting returned by buyers but he was just super-smart and had to bond with his humans. I loved him and was so happy when he finally found a forever home with a young guy who just took up riding to keep company with his kids.

Peter Paul (the horse) instantly took to the young man and I knew he wouldn't be returned again.
In fact, he ended up having a nice run on the show circuit / eventing with that man as time went on.

I love a happy outcome

Ah I love these horse stories even though I'm not much of a horse person myself.

Dawn and Hawk, your stories seem like they had multiple levels of good.
