For Denali.



I just heard the news about Denali, and I am sure many of you have as well. We featured Denali and her mom in one of our early Sunday Success Stories, and had been following her plight long before that, through all her ups and downs. It breaks my heart to hear that a final decision has been reached, and I know her mom is really hurting right now. I've been in that situation before, when I know I'm doing the right thing by my horse even though it hurts me, and if you haven't stopped by her blog to send your condolances, please go drop her a note to let her know we're all thinking of her. I don't have a lot of money, and I don't know Denali's Mom outside of the blogging community, but I really want to do something for her. I have a set of custom horsehair necklaces that I was given when each of my horses passed away, and they are stunning. I wear one or the other every single day, and have since the day I got them. I think something like that would really be special.

I don't have much money, but I'll match anything that anyone will donate to this. A really nice one is about $100. Please, if you have just $5, send it along. I'll let you know the details about it if you shoot me an e-mail - I want to keep it a semi-surprise.


((Donation button removed... thanks for your generous gifts!!))



And go hug your horse today.

Denali and her mom certainly did touch the blogging community. This time of year I think of my little old girl Naigen I had to put down two years ago this weekend.
However I do custom horse hair jewelry and I already offered to make something for Denali's mom at a very good price. However Christmas orders are filling quick if she wants something I will reserve a spot for her and whatever she wants. Please leave me a message I can link you to examples and prices sydney@bitlesshorseblog.com

Awww MAN! And here I thought I was being original. Well, if she choses that then I will just have to come up with something else brilliant to thrill and surprise her!

I had pendants made from my pitts dna by this company.

It had been very comforting to me and at only 75 bucks very worth it.

Sorry was supposed to say pets dna. They can make them from blood, check swab or horse hair.

Andrea..what are we deciding to do w/ donated money now? thx :)

I've been a bit busy with being homeless and flying out all over god's creation for job interviews, so I've not had much time to work on the project - but I have a new idea, and when I get home on Sunday, I will have a new plan formulated. Stay tuned, and just give me a few days to get my feet under me again! ;)
