So she is standing there, watching him go, same as I am, then all of a sudden she is gone. Like GONE! I blink, thinking maybe I am seeing things but when I open them she is still gone. So I stop and listen and hear nothing, not a single sound other than the frogs croaking. I wait and still nothing and that is when I decided to use my cell as a flash light searching for her. She didn't make a sound until I nearly stepped on her. Not even a thud as she hit the ground. Who does that?! So it looked like that scene off of one of the Twilight series where the vampire just snatched the guy up out of nowhere quicker then anyone could even imagine.
I'm pretty sure I actually made a pretty loud "HHMMPPHHH" as I hit the ground and a few noises as my head and a$$ were dragged over rocks and frozen horse poop!
You were probably too busy looking up for Robert Patterson to even think about me for five minutes.

I have two brothers who are twins, and two sisters.
Appreciate? Yes. Sometimes want to pulverize into the ground? Yes.
The times when I appreciate them? When I go tubing and lose my shorts on impact in the lake (yes, that happened) and one of my brothers jumps in to save them. When my sisters make me laugh until I cry over something so stupid that it just makes it funnier. Late night conversations about everything. When my brothers drive me to the barn.
I love my siblings! :)

Faiza- I've lost more than one pair of shorts after falling off a tube! It's great that your brother "saved" them for you. I loved reading all the sibling stories and I figured I'd add mine in.

I have a younger brother and an identical twin sister, Ronan and Erin. I love them both to death. My brother (who most certainly did not get the horsey bug) is senior in high school and will be graduating in a little over a month. I'm more proud of him than I can say. He will be going to college in Florida, we live in California, which is hugely brave and not something I was close to ready to do at 17. He's funny and smart and one of the kindest people I know.

My sister means more to me than anything, we get along quite well and really always have. We had sort of an "us against the world" mentality growing up and that really cemented our bond. We both love horses and split the costs of our first one so that we could afford him while going to school. I realize this post is kind of scattered but there are just so many good things about her that I don't really know where to begin. We're both graduating from college this year, both looking for horsey jobs, but we're not looking for the same ones. For the first time in 22 years we will be living not only in separate cites, but possibly separate states, which is scary. But I know we'll be able to handle it.

Leenie you sound much like Tiff and I!
I was lucky though - she moved away and I'm just following her. LOL

Mending fences with siblings can sometimes be insurmountable. Sis was queen B for 3 years until I showed up. Years later my father told me her nose was bent and regardless of reassurances she had convinced herself that she had been replaced. 5 years later a brother showed up which was great for me but not her. Mom was on a roll and two years later another brother and two years later another. Sis was a teenager by then and got stuck with almost raising the youngest. Anyway, years have gone by and she has opted to alienate herself from her siblings. The four of us have a great relationship despite the distances and have tried to draw her in but no dice. We miss her. She has no idea how much love awaits her. One day it will be too late.
