I fell in love by accident. I was just going to pick up a horse trailer when I met the eyes of a beautiful paint mare. At that moment I knew I was going to be taking home a horse, but, not the one I thought. I was staring at her amazing blue eyes, two coloured mane and tail....I was starting to memorize them in my brain. But, as I was doing so, I realized that I had fallen tot he ground. Startled to be distracted from the mare, I got up and looked around. Blazing eyes of a bay stared back at me, it was her, but I decided to continue with the positive.
There were horses, I was in love with one, so ofcourse, it was riding time! After saddling the paint, we led her outside only to find the bay going absolutley crazy. The dealer took her outside while we rode but she just burst through the gate and started to follow us.
My dad decides to do something crazy and say "Hop on this mare, she'll be a very interesting brood mare." Not wanting to dissapoint him, I hop off the paint and stroke her nose, pretending she was mine. Suddenly, there was pain in my arm and out of the corner of my eye I saw the bay...she wanted some attention and was not going to give up until she got it. As I was being pissed at the mare, my dad got on and rode her around.
She was amazing. I forgot all about the pain and I was hypnotized by everything she did and every move she made. My dad tested her and she passed with flying colours. I knew I was falling in love, but I wouldn't believe it. I hopped on. I got on and in that tiny second I had before I was on the ground, I felt a click. Her whiskers over my face, she looked at me and said "Come on, ride like ya mean it!" That did it, I knew she was mine. I got up and said" Load her up, she's coming home tonight."
And that is how we grow. She will test me to keep me on my toes, but at the same time, she loves me and takes care of me. Always as sweet as anything, but also that brattiness is in her heart which is why we named her the exact opposite of what she is "Shy". Now, we look back and remember 3 years ago how that wonderful mare chose me.
They say home is where the heart is. That must mean my home is ontop of an Angel getting ready to fly.
