    Update on Johnny!

    Today I went out to the barn to visit Johnny.
    This was his first time in the indoor arena, he loves it!
    We didn't do any riding today, I rather have him get used to his surroundings and settle in before rushing into work.
    So instead we played and did a little bit of lunging.
    I still can't get over how fast he has warmed up to me!
    I had expected him to have lost a bit of trust in me after the move,
    But I walked into the barn, called his name and to my surprise was greeted with a nicker!
    The first clip is what he did when I stood outside of his stall.

    Let me just say, I think that is adorable. I can only hope to have the same bond as you do with my new horse

    Thank you both (:
    When his owners had chosen to give him to me they had all agreed that we were a match made him heaven, and now it had so much more meaning to me. I had put my first horse down 3 years ago he was truly the best friend anyone could dream of having, and had even saved me from a bear at one point. We did everything together, and he was still under saddle at 27 and running faster than some of the OTTB horses at our barn. But once he had turned 28 his age finally caught up with him, and within 2 weeks time he was skin and bone and had lost all his teeth. Even when he could barely walk he always did everything he could to keep me happy. We did everything in our power to help him, but the vet eventually said we had no other choice but to put him down. When my parents went to put him down I stayed home because I couldn't handle seeing it. They called me at 10 am to tell me that before he was given the shot that he was looking around for me and calling for me, like he knew what was happening but wanted to see me. So my dad called me and he had now gotten the shot, but he wouldn't let go. So my dad put the phone to his ear and I talked to him and told him I loved him very much and asked him to guild my way to another horse who could love me almost just as much as he did. Not even a minute after my dad had hung up the phone he called me back and told me he passed.

    Now the reason for that whole story,
    Johnny reminds me so much of Shady, when I was into the barn he greets me with a nicker, he gets frustrated when im not next to him, he plays tag, and everything about him feels so natural to me and it feels like I've known him for years. This may sound a little silly, but I believe Shady actually did guide me to this horse.

    Is this the horse where they wanted $9000, but when they saw you with him, they gave him to you instead? If so, I see why. He adores you. It is so nice to see such an instant bond.

    That would be him!
    I had gone to see him at the barn today, I usually go every second day but I was very busy for the past couple of days and never got a chance to go see him. I finally got to go late tonight around 10 pm. The stable hand just so happened to be coming in from a ride just when we got there and we had a nice talk before I went into the barn, she told me about how much he really seems to miss me. Whenever im around she says he seems a lot more happier but when im not around he paces around in his stall and every time someone goes into the barn he gets excited and puts his head over the stall to see if it is me or not. Then he continues whatever he was doing.I thought it was pretty cute, so I walked into the barn and saw his head poke out from his stall and called his name, he greeted me with a long whinny and wouldn't stop pawing and dancing around till I got to his stall. I even taught him how to give kisses today!
    Man I love this horse! And he sure loves me
