Well, I've had horses since I was 5. I always had mares, and I never had any sort of support with my horse hobby. My parents considered softball "my life". I went through more horses than a dealer. I hated it. I never had a horse that was good for me. That all changed this past Christmas. I hadn't had my own horse in almost three years, because the last one was wilder than a hair on a hog. But my boyfriend(fiancé now) talked my parents into surprising me with a horse for Christmas. I'll never forget that boy. He was my heart horse, my first gelding. We clicked instantly. I was in college 3 hours away, and I was NOT about to spend a day without Pie. So I loaded him up and took him to school with me :) I don't know what I'd have done without him!! Anyway, I didn't have anyone who supported me riding. So I found this forum where everyone loves horses! I could post pictures of my Pie, and I could be happy showing him off to people who wanted to see!.... I brought Pie home the weekend before I started to move things home from my dorm room so I wouldn't have to haul him with all my dorm stuff. When I brought all of my stuff home only a week later, I couldn't find Pie. I looked all over for him, looked for 3 hours. And when I found him he was dead. It killed me.. But having this forum, I've been able to recover from it a little bit at a time. And now I have a new gelding to post pictures of. Things are getting better, and I owe it to the people on this forum who post pictures and love their horses the way they do!
