Welcome to FS Gemstone Miniatures located in the beautiful province Limburg of Belgium. We are a beginning stud of miniature horses. Our goal is to breed high quality horses that you would be proud to own.
We are member of AMHA, the American studbook for miniature horses, and the Belgian studbook, BMP. Further, we occasionally participate in shows organised by one of the following organisations: BMP, MHCE and ICAMH.
Feel free to browse around. If you have any questions or wish to pay us a visit, contact us, we would be glad to help.
Just a horse
From time to time, people tell me, "lighten up, it's just a horse," or, "that's a lot of money for just a horse".
They don't understand the distance traveled, the time spent, or the costs involved for "just a horse". Some of my proudest moments have come about with "just a horse".
Many hours have passed and my only compagny was "just a horse", but I did not once feel slighted. Some of my saddest moments have been brought about by "just a horse", and in those days of darkness, the gentle touch of "just a horse" gave me comfort and reason to overcome the day.
If you, too, think it's "just a horse", then you will probably understand phrases like "just a friend", "just a sunrise", or "just a promise".
"Just a horse" brings into my life the very essence of friendship, trust, and pure unbridled joy.
"Just a horse" brings out the compassion and patience that make me a better person.
Because of "just a horse" I will rise early, take long walks and look longingly to the future.
So for me and folks like me, it's not "just a horse" but an embodiment of all the hopes and dreams of the future, the fond memories of the past, and the pure joy of the moment.
So the next time you hear the phrase "just a horse" just smile, because they "just" don't understand.
