Before you read the funny things below, I will relate a story about a horse, a guardian angel, and God’s watch care over us.
One day a young man was riding his horse near a town outside Orlando, Florida. He had been riding a good distance and he was thirsty and tired. The young man saw a lake at the bottom of a hill and decided to go down there to drink. It was about thirty feet from the water when his horse suddenly stopped abruptly. The young man got off the horse and the horse made a loud sound as if giving a warning. As the boy started toward the water the horse knocked him to the ground. The young man was angry with his usually gentle horse. He picked himself up and attempted to go to the water to drink again. The horse again knocked him down and jumped up and down making noises. This time instead of getting mad, he got smart. He looked carefully into the tall lake grass and saw a huge shadow under the water. He started walking away from the water holding the horse reins in his hand. About thirty feet away he found a large rock. He came near the lake water and threw the rock at the large shadow. When the rock hit near the shadow a large alligator came rushing out of the water. It was twelve feet long. The boy got away but was shaking with fear. He realized that he was almost an alligator meal. His horse, or an angel, or God had saved his life. After calming down, he rode home grateful for his horse’s attention to God’s warning that he did not understand. Sometimes animals are more aware of God and his angels than we are.
A blonde decides to try horseback riding, even though she has had no lessons or prior experience.
She mounts the horse unassisted and the horse immediately springs into motion. It gallops along at a steady and rhythmic pace, but the blonde begins to slip from the saddle. In terror, she grabs for the horse’s mane, but cannot seem to get a firm grip. She tries to throw her arms around the horse’s neck, but she slides down the side of the horse anyway.
The horse gallops along, seemingly impervious to its slipping rider. Finally, giving up her frail grip, she leaps away from the horse to try and throw herself to safety.
Unfortunately, her foot has become entangled in the stirrup, she is now at the mercy of the horse’s pounding hooves as her head is struck against the ground over and over.
As her head is battered against the ground, she is mere moments away from unconsciousness when to her great fortune… the Walmart manager sees her and shuts the horse off.
One day a man passed by a farm and saw a beautiful horse. Hoping to buy the animal, he said to the farmer: “I think your horse looks pretty good, so I’ll give you $500 for him.”
“He doesn’t look so good, and he’s not for sale,” the farmer said.
The man insisted, “I think he looks just fine and I’ll up the price to $1,000.”
“He doesn’t look so good,” the farmer said, “but if you want him that much, he’s yours.”
The next day the man came back raging mad. He went up to the farmer and screamed, “You sold me a blind horse. You cheated me!”
The farmer calmly replied, “I told you he didn’t look so good, didn’t I?”
One day, while I was petting a Shetland Pony at the zoo, a friend of mine asked, “How are you today?.” I responded, “I’m feelin a little hoarse.”
A city dweller came to a farm and saw a beautiful horse. He decided he had to have the animal.
He bargained with the farmer and the farmer finally sold him the horse. The city man jumped on the horse and said, “Giddyup!” The horse didn’t budge.
The farmer explained, “This is a special kind of horse. He’ll only move if you say, ‘Praise the Lord.’ To stop him, you have to say, ‘Amen.'”
Keeping this in mind, the new owner yelled, “Praise the Lord!” whereupon the horse took off with great speed. Soon horse and rider were headed for a cliff.
Just in time the rider remembered to say “Amen!” The horse came to a screeching halt right at the edge of the cliff. Relieved, the rider raised his eyes to heaven and exclaimed, “Praise the Lord!”
