Blue Fern Studios and More Than Words January 2016 Challenges

Hope this Sunday is awesome for everyone - it's cold, but sunny here instead of gloomy as it has been for the last several days.
This page is for two challenges.  One of the challenges required a selfie - which I don't normally do, but this particular selfie was taken this last Summer 2015.  A friend of mine was in town from Wyoming delivering a horse to a client - and my friend and I took some selfies at my house before we left to deliver the horse.  The horse was for a little girl with some physical disabilities and she was very shy - hence, I was there to settle her fears and help her become friends to her new horse.  It was a great day - I rode her horse and showed her how gentle her new friend was and put her on and walked her around on the horse.  We spent the day with the little girl and by the time we left - she and Angel (her best friend's new name) were doing quite well.  We went back the next day and worked with her again - she was doing amazingly well.  Someone would always have to ride along with her on another mount, but the little girl and Angel were perfect. One happy story from 2015.
