This is delightful - full of so many visual images! I can see that old horse running his laps and greeting the kids after school. Well done!


It is a joy to hear you tell stories. You connect with animals and describe them with lovely details, making them real to all of us. I love your vision. I also enjoyed the way you framed this story with Everett's visit. It is short and clean and vivid - a little pastoral gem.

What a great story. My mom is 93 so I can relate to how cherished their stories are.

Sally Borg

I love this story. It is so wonderful to just listen to the stories in our family. But then we need to tell others about the stories, to keep them alive.

Mike Blackstone

I so loved the fact you "indulged" Everett. And that he responded by telling the story with such glee. Yes, telling stories to each other binds us at the heart and is so great for relationships. It was quite obvious you and Zach made Everett's visit a joy for him. You're not just a good listener but a heart-centered one, as well! And it WAS a great story!!
