My dad leaned over and asked if they had any jumpers and they said they didn't but they knew someone who did. That lead us to a woman who was good friends with my mom and actually lived with us when I was a baby. When she brought Hershey out of that barn I knew he was mine. I could see through his thin body and shabby coat to the horse he would become. It was love at first sight. If we had chosen a different restaurant or different time I would have never had Hershey. I truly believe that God lead me to him.
Aww. Small world isn't it? Well my story started out where there was this horse I fell in love with. Have you ever heard of jamie wyeth? Well he owned the horse I was half leasing. This was a picture he painted: http://www.tfaoi.com/mn/mib/mib56.jpg
And the horse I was half leasing was (and that was me 2 years ago): comet on Flickr - Photo Sharing!
Well anyways he got sent back because jamie's cousin's horse went lame and I had helped comet improve sooo much! He was soo fat and barely moved (THE SLOWEST HORSE EVER) but he trusted me and I got him going somehow and I had no leg whatsoever back then. So I found out that right after they took him back, they sold him to someone I knew and I might go see him soon
. I was pissed about that, but now i'm not. Anyways so my mom was looking everywhere for a horse for me. We tried this 14.0 quarter pony who was a BRAT. He would like not stop. So he didn't work then we tried this other quarter horse. God that horse had a huge head. He was 14.2 and had a medium size horse head! Lol. Anyways so he bucked me off at a full speed gallop. I got back on and he galloped around the ring like four times and that was an olympic size ring! I eventually stopped him, but he went back (he was completely crazy.) and then so my mom was talking to her hair stylist and then the owner of the shop came by and started telling about her daughter's horse. Then my mom was like we're looking for a horse for sale for my daughter and the lady was like my daughter's horse isn't for sale yet, but we can let you look at her. Anyways after loads of begging, my trainer finally agreed to go look at the mare (she didn't want to because she didn't get the cut...) anyways so it was LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT! I mean like the moment I saw her I was totally in love. I just knew she was mine. And when I got on her, she felt sooo different because she was built differently than any horse i'd ridden. Anyways I fell totally in love even more when I rode her. And for the next few weeks I BEGGED my mom if we were getting her. Then on april 1st of 2007, I went to the barn and there my pony was
and i've owned her for 2 years and she is the love of my life! She IS my soul horsey
