Guess who continued

 Hello all

I hope that you all had a wonderful Christmas!
Ours was enjoyable and it was nice to be with family!

So as I was saying in my last post, I decided to leave it to the Universe as to whether I should have another horse or not.

I was on Facebook one day back in May and a post popped up about a horse that was available. 
A 13 year old Chestnut Mare 16hh OTTB. She was beautiful! 
She was the right age that I was looking for. She was chestnut. ( I love redheads! I married one!) LOL
My concern was that she was a mare and that she was a thoroughbred.
And of course the expense of owning a horse was a major concern.

So with some prodding from a friend, we went and met her. 
I watched as she was ridden for my benefit and she looked good.
She was brought over to the fence where we were standing and was so sweet. She nudged my hand a few times for me to pet her. Rubbed her head on my chest. Basically, she was playing me LOL

So over the next few days I wrestled with making the decision to purchase her or not. 
Eventually the pieces came together with some help from others and it seemed doable. 
So I purchased her! 

I couldn't wait for her to be delivered. And when she was I still couldn't believe that I owned another horse. I started researching her racing history and found that she had foaled twice. 
Earned roughly $50,000.00 and then the trail went dead. But that didn't matter to me.

I visited her during the week after work and on weekends to do my chores, I was rough boarding at a private barn.
It was a nice peaceful environment. And I thought that this was the place to be.
Until the rumblings from outside individuals began............

(To Be Continued.......)
Until next time

Hi everyone

As is my M.O. it has been months since I last posted. But those that follow me on Facebook know what has been going on with me. 

First let me say that I am no longer involved with a rescue. I will donate to those that I believe are doing the right thing. But as far as volunteering physically, that's doubtful. I cannot subject myself to the drama and heartbreak that tends to come along with being a part of one. 

Since Sir's passing I was empty. For reasons unknown to me I have always had an affinity to horses.
Maybe it's a past life cell memory? Be it as it may, I want to be around and near horses. It has been that way all my life.

At the last rescue that I was at I bonded with Thor. (I had blogged a couple of times about him).
I had hoped to turn my sponsorship into an adoption but it was not to be. 
And I have to say that it hurt. You form a bond with an animal for almost a year and then you have to cut ties.

Once I knew that I wouldn't be able to adopt him I played around with searching for a horse to buy. 
There were some nice ones to be had but they just didn't seem right. So as I usually do I left it to the universe to decide.
And it did! 

More about that in my next post! Promise that it won't be long in coming!

Until then! 

I remain.....
