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.
