I haven't managed to get back to the horses since, although when I visit my friends I still get a ride in. I do miss them terribly.
I try and comfort myself imagining adventures of my Breyer horses. (I'm a writer too.) I also started a website and loaded horse art in some Cafepress shops. I figured I couldn't stop drawing if I tried. I'd draw if I only had a crayon and napkin, so why not start a shop?
Anyway it's nice to find this site and see what's going on with other horse lovers. And one of these days I still dream I'll have my own horse, even if it's a gimpy old nag that's only good for brushing.
