How soon will you get to meet Sky again? I'm sure he'll be very excited to see you then.

I have come a long way, to surrender my shadow to the shadow of my horse.

Aw, that sucks. :( I hope that the year will pass quickly and pleasantly for you, and you will be back with Sky in no time! And, meanwhile, maybe there are possibilities of having riding lessons in NZ, just to ease the horsey bug? :)

Those prices seem pretty reasonable. When my sister was showing, I think she bought a used one for $450 and it had to have a little work done. And her harness was about that same price.

I'd like to get a used one, but driving with this type of carriages isn't too popular around here, so there are practicaly none of them in the market. Oh well, getting a shiny new one is always more exciting. :) I am dreaming already how I will take nice rides along our forest trails with a good friend by my side and Snickers enjoying his mission to pull. :)

Who says you can't skype with your pets?! Have the family member bring a laptop or mobile phone with skype out to the barn. If I was going to be gone that long I would make someone do that for me lol.

I think I wouldn't do that skype/phone thing. My dog used to absolutely freak out when my dad did that while in hospital/travelling/etc., he seemed to be more sad and scared about why is his favourite person hiding, than happy about hearing the voice.

I've seen people skype with indoor pets, but I have never even heard of someone taking a laptop out to a barn so that an owner could skype with thier horse. That's a new one for me.

Hehe I would just want proof that she hasn't injured herself. Plus I miss my pets too much when I'm gone. My phone has skype so a laptop may not be neeeded.
