    Wonderful that after suffering years of abuse you finally were shown the patient, kind and loving side of humanity thanks to your devoted guardian. I hope you and she enjoy many more years together! My now deceased horse, Tim, was also POTD and he lived to be in his 30's. Congratulations on being chosen POTD and hope you get lots of apples and carrots in celebration!

    I've been Boo'd ... right off the stage!

    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!

    Dobbin the Hero Horse!

    Hi Dobbin! Happy Pet of the Day to you, and to your proud young lady too!
    What a gorgeous Quarter horse you are, Dobbin, and looking so precious in your Santa hat and sparkly, red garland! Your beautiful Christmas card is such a fitting tribute to just how far you've come, Dobbin, and we can't thank your devoted guardian enough for giving one most deserving creature a second chance at life!

    It breaks my heart to think of the abuse you suffered early on, that you were once considered "disposable." But as your lady has said, even in light of the most unspeakable neglect and abuse, so often all it takes is time, patience, and unconditional love to heal a broken spirit! You and your person are truly an inspiration, Dobbin, and now, whole and healed, you pay it forward, teaching others all about the priceless rewards of horse companionship in your 4H work!

    How lucky your lady is, having a best friend in you, Dobbin, and I hope for and for her many, many more happy, carefree years of shared love and friendship! And seeing as how you're but a mere 11 years old, there's a whole lots of living and loving yet to look forward to!
    Enjoy your well earned day of honor, beautiful boy, with wishes to you and yours for a very happy Christmas!

    Lots of love to you, beautiful Dobbin, and please have your person give you a fave treat for me! (Seeing as how this is the season, maybe some peppermints?)
