I lost me dream horse to a freak accident. Having other horses to love helped pull me out of it.
You should never compare horses, just like you would never compare close friends. Your relationship will be different - you will never have the same relationship as you did with Indie, but you will have ones that are just as meaningful in other ways.

And if you happen to be out this way, we have two OTTB's that will be looking for the right home
