Thank you all so much for voting for Pixie Dust this month. It's my turn this week to answer my Horse Channel friends who are voting and since I've also been writing to my Dog and Cat Channel friends too who didn't know Joanna, I would like to reiterate some of what has already been written on the HC.

It may come as a shock but this blog is written by Pippin! After all, as the dogs and cats have been telling me, it is "horse" channel after all and not "human" channel! So, I booted mama off the computer and put my hooves to the keys. Good thing I have tiny hooves!

Pixie Dust had tiny hooves too and like me, she would love to go into the house. Her mama, Joanna, was bedridden for 9 years and Pixie Dust would visit her and bring her joy. We horses have a way of doing that. Even I, a feisty little stallion.

I have the greatest temptation to nip and sometimes I just can't control myself. It's especially difficult when people wave their hands in front of my face like I'm a statue or something. I try my best but I end up succumbing and "yelp" I've shown that hand who is boss. Or, even harder, someone bends over in front of me with their back towards me. What do I see but a big broad target? Oh my, who could resist?

But… when someone is sick or disabled, I'm on my best behaviour. I intuit when someone needs sympathy and not a nip. And that is how I know that Pixie Dust must have felt that way too. She was a wonderful therapy horse and knew how to make people feel better and be happy. (Plus, Joanna never said that she nipped anyone. Perfect little Pixie Dust!)

For 7 years Joanna worked with Pixie Dust and introduced the world of the love of horses to so many children. After Joanna suffered respiratory failure and became bedridden Pixie Dust continued to inspire not only so many more children but also Joanna herself. Joanna always wrote with such love about her tiny little horse.

Joanna died at the age of 34 on the 23rd of September, 2010. Pixie Dust died just this February. I will write more about them in subsequent blogs. So, please continue to stop by with a vote and a note (however small) and I'll be back daily with more of their amazing story.

Vote for Pixie Dust HC 101958

Leaving a vote of appreciation.
