Miss Jack

I have always loved horses and have owned them for the past 25 years. Many have come and gone - for one reason or another. Most were good, some weren't. This horse was the best. Her name was Miss Jack and she was with us 14 years. She died this past summer, three months after giving birth to her last foal. She was 21 years old, and I still have her 11 year old offspring, PJ, who will be having a foal herself, this March. The baby will be a paint horse, and I expect it will the subject of many paintings in the future.

Horses are nothing like dogs, although many people treat them as such. I have a great deal of respect for an animal that allows a human to sit on it and tell it what to do, and for those who know how to get a horse to do such a thing.

1 Peter 3:15 But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect,
