Congratulations, Sharon! You won the photo contest this week!

Here’s what Sharon shared with us:

This photo was taken just before Christmas in 2018. You can’t see them in the photo because of the deep snow, but Herbie is happily wearing his Easyboots.

Herbie is 18 this year. I found him in 2006 while looking for a 15.2-hand, 10-15 years old, gaited, spotted mare. Wound up with a 14-hand, 4-year-old, gaited, black gelding. Not what I was looking for, but exactly what I wanted! He was bombproof from the start and smarter than me about a lot of things. One of my best teachers.

Fast-forward 14 years and he is still bitless, barefoot, and my best teacher. We ride the trails with the Cook County Illinois Trail Watch Volunteers. We help lost folks navigate the many trails in the area and count heads for the Forest Preserve district. Herbie has been a fantastic partner. I’ve ridden practically all my life and Herbie is my best friend. And despite having paid more than I wanted to at the time, nobody could write a check big enough to buy him from me now.

Thanks for sharing with us, Sharon!
