Walking through the barn I realized something. It’s not just the riding that’s so important to these kids. It’s more than that.
The thing about horses is, they don’t judge you. They don’t discriminate, or tease, or gossip. They don’t shy away at the site of you, they don’t decide they don’t want to be your friend because you walk different or cannot speak clearly.
They greet you with warm friendly eyes, and a loving heart. These horses have allowed a lot of special kids to ride on their backs, brush their fur, and hug their necks. They have listened to shared dreams, and kept secrets. They are quiet, gentle giants who just want to love.
It was these very horses that helped Logan advance in his development, and I am grateful for that. Please check out the Paper Clouds campaign and see if you might want to buy one of the shirts with Logan’s drawing of one of the Windrush Horses. 50% of shirt proceeds go right to the farm to help care for these wonderful horses.
