Dear Santa -

Dear Santa,

Remember all those times when I was little how I always asked for a horse? Remember how I promised I'd take good care of it and would love it forever? In your vast wisdom of how children work, you always saw to it that I received one or two beautiful Breyer horses, knowing they were the most I could handle at that age.
You know what, Santa, I kept my promise. I still have those Breyer horses. Even after all the years of our imaginary adventures and playtime they are clean, unbroken and stored neatly in dustproof bags. And you know what? Now they are slowly returning to being cherished playthings for my own children.
So Santa, I know it's been years, but this time I'm going to ask for the same thing again but as an adult, and as an adult who has proven she can take care of a real, live horse.

Santa, would you please find me a horse for Christmas? Trying to find the right one by myself is so hard. I know if anyone can do it, it's you.

And I promise, I'll take good care of it and love it forever.

What a beautiful letter...and you have brought me completely to tears.

May your words fly to the North Pole on wings of angels. I wish there were some way to help Santa along on this one, but I guess I will just have to add a little prayer from my own heart to speed things along.

If anyone deserves a horse, you do. Your dedication and love has been clear in every word you have ever written on this blog.

Please, Santa....one beautiful horse, giftwrapped in love....*hugs*

I feel your yearning. I hope you find your soul/stable-mate soon. I am beginning to feel that I have set my own need for horses aside for too long. Let's see where the New Year takes us.

Oh my gosh, I am with Jean.... Not exactly sure why but my eyes welled right up reading your letter to Santa. That was really sweet, and I really hope he makes your wishes come true. We could all use a little magic these days.

Your wish will come true - it's just a matter of time.

I don't want anything myself for Christmas this year so I think I will use my Christmas wish hoping that Santa can find you the next perfect horse in your life.

Well now that I'm almost in tears! I hope you get your Christmas wish along with everyone else (including me!) who is still hoping to find a pony under the tree.

Santa's a terrible person if he doesn't give you the horse of your dreams after this post! In all seriousness, you have a beautiful heart. I know the horse for you will come cantering into your life soon, you deserve it.
