    Falling in love..kind of corny, but oh well.

    So it has been 2 weeks now, since I officially bought Tucker. I haven't owned my own horse since I was 17 (29 now). I have just lessoned and done a light lease for the last couple years. Well...I met Tuck a couple weeks ago, and just couldn't say no for some reason, and handed over the money. He is very very green..and has been through a lot in his life, including being nearly starved to death as a yearling and beat on by his previous owner (according to previous owner's mother). Yet despite his past and that he has little or no reason to trust me..he does. He is smart, and has been kind to me and has yet to disappoint me. Even if he is scared and doesn't want to do something, he still tries honestly and I love this attitude.

    Today we were working on loading in the trailer. He has never been in one in his life. He kept banging the floor with his hoof over and over very loudly before stepping in. I stood inside waiting for him patiently, and allowing him to listen to the sounds of his hoof on the floor..and feel the floor under him. He never did come all the way inside, but he came half way in. When he did, he put his head into my chest and sighed. I looked down at his face and saw that his eyes were closed, and he stood there like that for a minute, quietly..and in that quiet moment I felt myself beginning to love him.

    Thanks for letting me share.
