Shazam's breeder (who quickly became a dear friend) lives on a lovely farm on the Niagara Escarpment hear Hamilton, most of which she rents to a couple who run an equestrian centre. It's ideal for my friend, who not only has all her horses there, several Arabs that she breeds and shows, but also a variety of animals she rescues. I don't know if the donkeys shown here are rescues, or the Llama that was in the stable the day I took this photograph, but I did meet the dogs she rescued and several of the cats, some of whom were barn cats, others house cats. This is a woman with a huge heart, who in her working life was a videographer and gatherer of news and commentary long before it was something women did with any frequency. She is remarkable. And so are her four-legged friends.
Hope you have someone or something remarkable in your life who can make you smile, feel proud, or that you want to emulate. This woman has set me a fine example. Have a super day, maybe you'll even see some donkeys today?
