    This is a great story, I need to read more positive stuff like this!

    Our animals are such an amazing gift are they not? I know they have changed my life, it is touching to read such a tale.

    Did any one notice the handicap decal clipped on her horse's haunches? Love it..

    How awesome to see. When Lex first brought her the shovel, I was half-thinking, "OMG, she's trained the dog to muck stalls! She could make a fortune doing that!"

    That story and video made me grin from ear to ear! Thanks for sharing that Mike!

    And here I thought from the thread title that this thread and video was for the poster LexinVa only, LOL!

    (and yep, I was being nosy as to why Lex got his own video!)

    Love it!
    A good horseman doesn't have to tell anyone...the horse already knows.

    Might be a reason, never an excuse...
