Amen! So glad that worked out so well.Thank you Dear Lord for a good horse.
I had a very similar experience when my daughter was small. We were actually at our pasture burying a dog we had to have put down. Emotions were high and DH and DD were working on digging. I decided to feed the horses to get them out of our way and was in the feed room. The youngest mare was trying her best to get in the feed room with me, as usual, when I noticed my DD (maybe 3yr old at the time) was trying to squeeze into the feed room too. She had walked up behind that mare...mare picked up that back foot...and DD proceeded to hug her around the hock. All I could see in my worst imagination was that horse kicking back and my DD going flying. But, I softly "ahhhh'd" the mare and she set that foot down ever so gently. Whew...Thank you Dear Lord for a good horse!
