Happy Birthday Lucky!!!

Lucky, my warrior pony

He was born 4 years ago on St. Patrick's Day.  I remember it was a very cool Satuday evening.  I looked out the kitchen window and saw his mother, Reba acting strange.  My heart jumped to my throat and I couldn't get the words out.  I just grabbed boots and jackets for my kids and we ran outside.
We could see something happening from a distance.  I held my daughter up so she could see over the fence.  I knew immediately that it was a paint.  I was so excited and then we waited until this little miracle got to his feet.
Then came the tears of joy.  We were laughing and crying at the same time.  It was the best St. Patrick's Day ever.

The LORD your God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.
Zephaniah 3:17 NIV

Lucky and his brothers.

Happy birthday Lucky!

Hello Territory Mom,
very pretty horses! We live in town now but we lived in the country for 11 years. (country life was not for us, we are town-people) but your pond with the trees and pastures looks so much like land did. Makes me miss our old place just a tiny pinch.

happy birthday to Lucky!
