Default A Great Story I wanted to Share

This is a great story that I took off our website and thought I would pass it on to my friends here at 3dshoots.com

Just up the road from my home is a field, with two horses in it. From a distance, each horse looks like any other horse. But if you stop your car, or are walking by, you will notice something quite amazing. Looking into the eyes of one horse will disclose that he is blind. His owner has chosen not to have him put down, but has made a good home for him. This alone is amazing. If you stand nearby and listen, you will hear the sound of a bell. Looking around for the source of the sound, you will see that it comes from the smaller horse in the field. Attached to the horse's halter is a small bell. It lets the blind friend know where the other horse is, so he can follow. As you stand and watch these two friends, you'll see that the horse with the bell is always checking on the blind horse, and that the blind horse will listen for the bell and then slowly walk to where the other horse is, trusting that he will not be led astray. When the hor se with the bell returns to the shelter of the barn each evening, it stops occasionally and looks back, making sure that the blind friend isn't too far behind to hear the bell. Like the owners of these two horses, God does not throw us away just because we are not perfect or because we have problems or challenges. He watches over us and even brings others into our lives to help us when we are in need. Sometimes we are the blind horse being guided by the little ringing bell of those who God places in our lives. Other times we are the guide horse, helping others to find their way.





Good friends are like that... you may not always see them, but you know they are always there. Please listen for my bell and I'll listen for yours. And remember... be kinder than necessary everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

I printed it off for my wife to read whenshe had time and she really enjoyed the story. Her eyes started to well up alittle bit. She really liked it since she is a major Horse nut. But I think whether you like horses or not this is a very moving story. It is sad that at times animals can show more compassion and willingness to help one another than most people can in a life time. On a different note, when I had to have an emergency appendictomy, after I got home when I was alone my English Mastiff Merlin was always by my side and would'nt let me out of his sight especially when I would try to get up and had trouble moving around. He also kept my basset hound away after he got really wound up and jump up on me. It is weird that animals can sense when you are in pain and upset and just be there for you when you are down.
