Abe— thank you for everything. If Shadow was our queen, you were our king. You’ve been through it all with us, but you know what was the best time we had together? Swimming with you. You were always the first one in the pond and the last to get out. Oh how we will miss the big smile you wore as you toted kids through the water. Until we get to spoil you with treats again. We love you.

The best horses in Heaven
they have no tail.
This is a rule they all know
without fail.
For when a new horse arrives
with a short cut bob,
they all know that this horse
did a very good job.

His owner could not bear
to part with her friend
so she saved his tail,
wrapped in ribbons
and in braids,
to hold with his memory
in a very loving way.

To enter Heaven
without a tail
is an honor,
a message,
that without fail
announces to everyone,
far and wide
that this horse
was more than a wonderful ride.

But
this horse was loved and cherished by one
and when his time serving on this Earth was done
he left behind
a broken heart
and a soul
from which he never will part.

Dear Shadow,

Thank you for being the best friend we could have ever known. Every day we will want to walk over to your window to see you hang your head out of the window for kisses and carrots. We will wish we could we could walk into the pasture only to chase you around because you were too stubborn to come back in. We will miss you watching over our kids as they take their lessons, knowing you wanted to be in the ring with them.
From everyone who was lucky enough to know you and love you, thank you. Thank you for teaching us how to be brave, how to trust and how to love. You were one of a kind, but you already knew that.
We know you’re still watching over us and can’t wait to see you one day.
Until we meet again.

We love you, queen.

“Andre has a true zest for working around the farm and he is eager to learn 'the ropes of the trade,' " said his supervisor at Blackjack Farms. Andre participated in our Transition Services GROW program and the farm staff was so impressed that they offered him a part-time job. Andre is one of the hundreds of success stories we have finding employment for adults and students with disabilities. We are always looking for employment opportunities and summer work sites.

Our programming staff went on a retreat at Blackjack Farms to set goals and discuss the upcoming year. Stay tuned for more information about what to expect in 2020!
Another wonderful Glow Up submitted and written by Julie Austin Head about her pony loving daughter Jane Head who trains at Blackjack Farms.

What started out as “wanting to ride a horse” and a google search of “barns near Mountain Brook Gymnastics” at the age of 7 has exploded into a lifetime passion. Jane stepped out of her sister’s shadow at the gym and created her own spotlight in the barn!

A fierce competitor in the ring from day one but a lifetime of friendships made outside of it!
