Chingaz, are you talking about MY Major?!?!?
SWEET? HAHAHAAHA He got you fooled! No, Major was special. Deep, deep down, I really truly believe that he wanted to love and show affection, he just didn't know how.
Sometimes when I cleaned his corral, he would rest his muzzle on my hip and doze off. I think that was his way of saying "I feel comfortable with you, but this is as far as I get. Take it or leave it, girl..."
And I'm just fine with that. I'm glad I could be there for him while he was being put down.
However, one thing that I can't seem to get over are the dreams I have of him. I keep having dream after dream about him, almost every night. But they're weird dreams. Like he's in his corral and I know he's there but I just can't see him. Or I'm walking him down the street and I turn around and he just wont be there...
Saturday night I had the weirdest dream. I was swimming in this really deep lake, and the water was really clear and I could see all the way to the bottom. I could breath under the water, which was weird. But I was swimming and Cricket was under the water swimming and playing with me and she could breath under the water too. I was panicking because I couldn't find Major. I swam deeper and there was this cave, and he was standing in it. And I could see that he was holding his breath. I was trying to pull him out, but the current was really strong and every time I moved I kept getting swept out of the cave. I was grabbing his legs and trying to move him, but HE was what was keeping me from falling out into the current because he was stronger than it. And I knew he was struggling to keep his breath. And I was saying, "Swim! Major, SWIM!!!" but he wouldn't move. And he just sort of looked at me, shook his head and took a deep breath of water. His entire body went limp and I remember him being swept out by the current.
Then I woke up. I haven't had a dream about him since. That's the last dream I remember having the last few nights.
It was really weird...
Just thought I'd add that.
Has anyone else had dreams about their horses who have passed?
