    I returned little Miss Shilow this afternoon. She is such a sweet little mare it is a shame.

    Her owner brought a friend to meet us and they know of a good gaited gelding in Monroe, La that they are going to contact me about. One never knows - it could be the one. I am keeping my eyes and ears open!!

    I am riding this weekend at a state park - I will be riding a AQHA gelding that belongs to a friend. He is for sale so I will keep an open mind!

    You know us horse folks are funny, cause I don't know you, and I got a little choked up reading how much you miss your Red. *sigh* I had a lovely red TWH mare when I was 13 to 18 that I had to sadly return to the lady I got her from in the first place. I lost a little TWH that we rescued in May of this year. I recently lucked into my current darling Rascal. But ya know, I still miss my big red girl, my little TWH baby, and still get a lump in my throat thinking of someone else missing their 4 legged, long haired friends. I feel for you. I hope you find another friend to ease the ache a little. HUGS Ma'am

    Thanks so much for the hug. Red is a very special boy. LOL everyone was giving me a hard time this weekend about kissing him to find out whether he was sweating or not. LOL that is the only way I would know if he was "ambient" sweating! I told them any of them that drank a beer or "dipped" tobacco was WAY grosser than kissing my horse!!! LOL

    I do miss him...it is better knowing that Heather has him and that she can love him up.

    I think some horses are just special and find that special place in our hearts and stay. I think that Red and my first "big" horse Little Bit will both always hold that place in my heart. They were both gorgeous sorrel horses.

    I did ride a very nice little Quarter Horse palomino gelding that is just 6 years old. He was super calm like Red - non spooky and with a laid back demeanor. He actually got up in my Brenderup trailer. I am going to keep him for a few months to see if we work out together so I may not get a gaited horse at this time. Maybe another time if something comes along at the right time.

    Awwww...thanks Heather. That brings a smile to my face and heart. Knowing he is safe and happy means more to me than anything else. I do miss his goofy alfalfa loving self. I have never seen a horse so crazy about alfalfa.

    We were discussing how we have to work at getting horses to go up the Brenderup ramp and someone asked me how I got Red in there the first time. LOL it was pretty easy. He just stood there and walked up the ramp and back down and refused to come up the ramp again....that is until I held out alfalfa to him. He couldn't get up that ramp fast enough. He is just a big old silly boy!
