As I was out walking the horse track, putting out hay and doing the regular poop-scooping regimen, I thought to myself, what am I going to write about the week of Christmas? I usually do some of my best brainstorming and come up with most of my ideas while I’m out doing my regular equine chores in the mornings.
What immediately popped into my head was this question,
What do you think about around Christmas?”
The first thing that came to mind was my father who passed away in 2002.
I continued to ponder how I would write about my father and not cause everyone to cry. I also thought how would I tie it in with something equine related. A good friend came to mind.
