Thursday Thankfulness

Well I haven't posted for awhile. I felt like I did because I wrote this post ages ago, but never got around to posting it. Anyway I hope you don't mind a post from whatever Thursday it really was. I'm still really thankful for these blessings!

This morning I was thinking about the many blessings I've had even just in the last few days. I thought I'd share them with you! And I haven't posted many photos yet so here are some of Maverick.

  1. An Injury free horse. Yesterday morning I went and got Maverick his breakfast(yes, he is spoilt) and called him and when he didn't come I investigated. He had gotten both his front feet stuck in a bad bit of fencing. I am extremely thankful that he just waited calmly for me to find and free him instead of panicking and hurting himself. I also praise God that I went out to feed him earlier than normal. 
  2. Seeing Alycia Burton and her horse Goldrush. Last night Mum took me to see a show of Alycia's. It was really inspiring. She is currently traveling around Australia (Sorry people I didn't say on my about page I am Australian!)encouraging young people to keep going and that there will always be better days. One thing that really encouraged me is she was talking about how you don't have to have the best. Goldrush was given to her as a problematic 7 year old and her bridle was actually put together from 4 different ones. You don't have to have the best; you have to be determined and ready to put the hard work in to achieve your dreams. 
  3. My amazing riding Teacher. She is such a blessing and encouragement to me. She teaches logically and is very down to earth and practical. I was glad she came to the show last night and we had a really nice chat. It was also so cute to watch her daughter and a few other girls play on the jumps in the arena. 
  4. Learning new stuff about horse herd behavior. I've been doing a little bit of research on herd behavior and discovered some really interesting stuff. Here are a couple of links if this kind of stuff intrigues you. This one is good over all. As is this one: it is a bit more scientific. 
  5. Little things: throwing delicious smelling hay to the neighbour's cows; that I'm going to see my sister on the weekend - I haven't seen her for two weeks! (an extremely long time); sunshine; working with my brother mustering sheep; riding my horse; and so many other things! 


  1. This is so pretty, I love how you find little things to be happy about in life. It warms my heart an encourages me to do the same. Thank you for sharing! <3
