Mango, she was awesome. Had her mare moments like any other but was great. After she had to be retired (somewhat) she was my first lesson schoolie for walk trot lessons for little kids. I am now giving lessons to the children of those children and we talk about her often, bums me out a bit but it is also rewarding to know she made an impact not only on me but others.
Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.
