Well, thanks for protecting me, AGAIN. Came off Marquis 9-3-16 in the Metro Parks, 40 minutes from the stables. Landed on my butt, lost my glasses and thought M would run off , but, he stayed with me! Never left me. 83 acres of trails to run away, but he stayed and waited for me to get up. You sent people to help me mount, and people to help find my glasses, too. Amazing. Five riders came along who had trailered to our area and they helped me get on and rode with me to the river crossing. Got home in one piece and hugged that grey boy and told him what a good boy he was for not leaving me. No way could I have looked for him on foot. I was in too much pain. Fractured L-1 and severely bruised my tail bone. Ortho. doc. said 6-8 weeks to heal. Whew, I did. PAIN, like nothing I ever had.
Started back to work, 10-17-16. And riding again without any pain. Switched to a 'honkin'
big western saddle for a more secure seat. I call it, "Nana's rockin' chair". Thanks for being there for me. You always knew how much riding meant to me. So glad I still can do it.
You're going to get such a big kiss from me when we meet again. Love you. Hug Sam for me.

Well, how is Sam? He left me 7-25-16, at 18 yrs. old. I was there with him at the end. I told him it was ok and that you would be waiting for him. He stayed with me so long, I think, because he was waiting until he was sure that I would be ok on my own, without him.
Sam...........I miss you terribly! You WERE the wonder dog, the bestest dog, the smartest dog and my BEST friend.
Kiss Ben for me. I miss him, too. But, he has his hands full taking care of ALL the animals that went before me. And there are so many. Love to all you wonderful animals. I am waiting for the time when I can kiss each and every one of you!!!
All my love, Rita
