So I got to visit my horse Sky in the states for approximately 9 days (was there for 10 but we had a day off :)) and now I'm back in lovely New Zealand for who knows how long.
I miss him already, and I feel really bad for leaving him again. He may not understand it, but I don't like that his 'herd leader' keeps coming and going and that I can't really communicate it to him.
Now what really bothers me is I am literally on the other side of the world... the farthest I can be from anyone... including my horse. I haven't seen my horse in over 9 days.. before that it was a year. And I come on here and I see people that live, what, an hour away from their horse and they whine about not being able to see their horse in 3 days, or 5 days, max a month.
How do you think I feel? Do you know how hard it is to be away from your horse for a YEAR? That you have to PAY over 3 grand just for a TICKET to get to the same country as your horse! I know RoperChick gets it because quite far from her horse as well.
I rely on updates from my friend looking after him and the barn. It's a lovely start, but it doesn't beat being there in person.
