A Pet's Prayer
A Pet's Prayer
My people are so precious, Lord;
I know You think so, too...
And I believe You put me here
To love them just for You!
They take such gentle care of me
And have such tender hearts...
Please use me, Lord, to comfort them
Whenever teardrops start.
They face a lot of battles
As they live & work each day...
They need me, Lord,
To make them smile
And show them how to play!
The world is full of people,
But sometimes real friends are few...
Please let my love & loyalty
Remind them, Lord, of you.
And when my final moment comes,
Lord, tell them as we part...
I was a made-to-order gift
From Your great, loving heart!

|Confessions of a Horseshoer|
Confessions of a Horseshoer by Ron Tatum
Hardcover, 229 pages, illustrated with black and white photos
Confessions of a Horseshoer offers a close and personal look at the mind-set of a professional horseshoer (farrier) who also happens to be a college professor. The book, an ironic and playful view of the many unusual animals (and people) Ron Tatum has encountered over thirty-seven years, is nicely balanced between straightforward presentation, self-effacing humor, and lightly seasoned wisdom. It captures the day-to-day life of a somewhat cantankerous old guy, who has attitude and strong opinions. Throughout the book, Tatum ponders the causes that led him into the apparently opposing worlds of horseshoeing, with its mud, pain, and danger, and the bookish life of a college professor. He tells the reader that it is his hope that writing the book will help him understand this apparent paradox between the physical and the mental.
Tatum provides a detailed description of the horseshoeing process, its history, and why horses need shoes in the first place. The reader will learn about the dangers of shoeing horses in "Injuries I Have Known," in which Tatum describes one particular self-inflicted injury that he claims no other horseshoer has ever, or will ever, experience. "Eight Week Syndrome" demonstrates the close, often therapeutic, relationship between the horseshoer and his or her customers. Tatum relates the story of an old Wyoming cowboy who could talk with horses, and consistently cure their injuries, lameness, and other physical problems after the veterinarians had given up. The humor in the chapters on chickens and rabbits will entertain any reader, as well as the sections on various dogs, ducks, llamas, goats, flies, and a sexually disoriented pig.
Readers of western life and lovers of horses will find Confessions of a Horseshoer an informative, quirky, and delightful work full of humor, attitude, and off-beat insight.

|A Woman's Place is on a Horse Hooded Sweatshirt|
With special thanks to our friends at Prairie Song.
A Woman's Place is on a Horse Hooded Sweatshirt
But then we all already knew that. Wear this shirt to make sure no one forgets and asks you to do something "in the home" before you can escape to the barn.
The embroidery on this is super intricate - requiring over 26,000 stitches to complete the design around the appliqued brown fabric that's printed with coordinating pink horseshoes. We've put it on a super heavyweight preshrunk 10 oz (regular sweats are 7 oz) that's buttery soft inside and out, and it gets softer with each washing. Does not shrink or pill and sizes are generous.
Regular Price $59.99 - Sale Price $49.99

This crew sweatshirt is screenprinted with a gal who's happily cleaning the barn, while we know her house is probably in disarray. Preshrunk heavyweight cotton blend crew is imprinted in shades of blue/grey; distressed to look like a worn favorite already. Example below shows the same picture in color as created by artist Lesley Bruce.

|Fall Girl - My Life as a Western Stunt Double|
About the author:
Martha has worked with, and kept, horses all of her life, and loves and respects them. She has saved movie horses that studios were ready to sell off to the "glue factory" after they had outlived their usefulness in films. One such horse she saved was Midnight - the horse that Clint Eastwood had ridden in the Rawhide television series as his character Rowdy Yates.
When Martha began her career in stunt work, she was one of a small handful of ladies who dared perform that kind of work, and they pretty much did it all anonymously so that the stars themselves would get the credit. Few outside the motion picture industry knew of their hard and dangerous work and sacrifice. Martha was inducted into the Hollywood Stuntmen's Hall of Fame in 2004, and was a Golden Boot Award Honoree in 2005. She currently lives in the Okanagan Valley in British Columbia, Canada with her husband John, who is a retired jockey. More here.

The Last Goodbyes
As you hold them in your arms
And say your last good-byes
Look close into the fading light
that flickers in their eyes
They are not afraid
because they know when a sparrow falls
she falls into the hands of God
all creatures great and small
They don't live as long as humans do
this too is a part of God's plan
for animals are God's angels
to be there for you when he can't
God's gift is that you can love many
when your pet has time for only one
you can give love and happiness to the strays...
who without you would have none.
So lay your friends to rest, lift up your hearts
dry your tears, for it is told
death is but a passage into the hands of God,
through the gates of gold
Somewhere others need you
in shelters, or wandering the streets
they want nothing more from life
than to lay down at your feet
It is time to give another life
the love only you can give
we are the caretakers of God creatures
for not to love... is not to live
written by Brenda Riley-Seymore
