Thank you for participating in RMR's Online Forum for Horsepeople. We appreciate your feedback.

In the September & October 2011 issues, regular RMR writer, Heather Smith Thomas of Salmon, Idaho, recounts her memories of her first horse, Possum.

She dreamed about owning a horse... and finally her father bought her one. She had many adventures with Ol' Possum.

Did you have a wonderful first horse when you were a kid? Did you spend your summers on horseback? Did you tell your horse your secrets? What was his or her breed and physical characteristics? Please share your memories here with other RMR readers.
