The Worth of a Teddy Bear


Breeze and Buttons


    Hours after his birth, Breeze was found stumbling around by a farmer.  The new-born foal had been abandoned by his mother so the farmer took him to the Devon-based Mare and Foal Sanctuary where they cared for him. What happened next is  heart-warming.  

 
One of the staff put a four-foot giant Teddy Bear called Buttons  into the stall with Breeze.  The foal was instantly attracted to him.  He had found a comforting replacement for his mother. 

The two are inseparable. The caregivers  expect Breeze to be fine, thanks to the farmer who rescued  him and to those who cared enough to take this little Cutie in Special thanks to Buttons.

Ditto the above comments. Meanwhile don't let this little snag ruin your weekend. In the long run, it doesn't mean a thing. :))

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
