Horses Healing People Healing Horses Design Story
In 2014, when I returned from Florida to care for my now 101 year old Mother, I began volunteering at a Horse Rescue facility. I enjoy doing handyman and fix-it projects, and volunteering. Being around horses became important to me. I've been nicknamed 'The Wacker of Weeds' ... and I do a lot of weed whacking!
I'd was born with horses. My Father bought Palominos from the race track and had my sister and I care for them. At a dozen years of age, we parted ways. I've since found my way back to horses. I'm not a rider, nor am I a Cowboy. I just like working and being around the people who love horses.
When I asked the reasons why other folks were volunteering with the horses, Julia told me her story."Horses saved my life", she said. "In the same week I lost both my husband and my mother. I was devastated. For months I couldn't function, even with simple tasks around the house," Julia explained.
"A friend asked me to join her one day. She took me to a horse rescue.
That day changed my life ... that day Saved my life!'
With a great big smile she said, "The horses gave me purpose, they gave me a reason to get up in the morning, they gave me someone to care for and look after."
Then Julia said, "The horses healed me, when I couldn't heal myself."
This comment from Julia is what inspired the quote;
"Horses Healing People Healing Horses"
then Old Man Beeson & I went to work on the design ...
Julia now owns 3 Miniature horses she takes to fairs and festivals for kids to enjoy.
Tee Shirts I Love uses the design to help raise monies for Horse Organizations. If you have a horse organization you'd like to raise monies for, Contact Us ... so we can get to work on it.
