Sir....You're a STAR!!

This past weekend I made my way to Gettysburg Pa for our annual Remembrance Day event.
I had dinner with my good friend Bill Taylor and his wife Karen. My trusty sidekick/"body guard" Rich Pawling joined us as well.
Bill gave me a custom made western saddle along with a bit and multiple pads. The saddle is awesome! Thanks Bill!!

It  was a bitter sweet trip. Gettysburg was always a happy place for Lynn, Frankie, and I, We always felt like it was a home away from home so to speak. But now not so much. Everywhere I went was a memory, a good memory, but bitter sweet.
But strange as it was, every time that I felt myself slipping into sadness, I either saw a horse or someone asked about Sir. Awesome! I instantly got back on track and felt much better.
Call it the universe or Frankie working behind the scenes or just coincidence either way it worked!

People actually seemed genuinely interested asking questions and offering suggestions and their own stories about their experiences with horses.
It really made my weekend tolerable.
Sir just keeps on giving me support even when we are apart.

I made my way home thinking about the weekend, Frankie, and Sir. Hawks crossed my path on several occasions, To me a sign that my Son is around.
All in all I was at peace.

I made my way out to the barn Monday evening and froze my ass off LOL. The wind was blowing and the temperature was dropping. But it was worth it. Tommy and Laurel and I chatted and laughed. We spoke about some events that are in the pipeline. As usual it was a good time.

Several times I went over to Sir's paddock and tried to coax him into coming to me. (something that he always did) The paddock was muddy and I was still in my work clothes so I stayed outside of it.
He would look at me then go back to what he was doing before.
He was ignoring me! Ha! The big lug was not going to give in!

I know that we tend to humanize our animals and pets. And if I didn't know better it seemed like he was giving it back to me for being way for the weekend. LOL

Sir is certainly a celebrity thanks to all of you who follow this blog and my FB page. A word to those of you who follow this blog because you have also suffered a loss,feel free to comment. And find something that will make you feel good about you while you are doing it and beyond. Volunteer at a nursing home, the VA, or animal shelter.
