Wow. That's... a mixture of heart breaking and fantastic. I can't imagine the pain that you and your wife went through in the loss of a son.
But it sounds as though horses have been a real blessing. It's funny how they have a knack for that sort of thing. ;) I also think it's important to have something that you both enjoy, and can share together.
I hope I can get boyfriend to like horses :O He's pretty wary of them, and says he's generally not a fan of things that are bigger than he is. XD But, the other day at the movies, he went so far as to say "In a few years when we settle down, do you want to get a house in the country so you can keep your horses on our property?" /SWOON. I just about died. <3 I think he's starting to realize that if we're going to be a "thing", horses are going to be part of it. XD
As for my plans... I really don't know. My plans originally were to start horse shopping this month. Gator is getting on the older side, and I want something shiny and new to compete with. Obviously that's not happening. XD So, I'll enjoy just Gator for now, and maybe start looking for another addition to our little herd come next January.
I am looking forward to getting back to work and school and driving. Especially driving. With boyfriend living over an hour away, it puts a strain on our relationship when we aren't /both/ able to drive to see one another. ):
For now... my mom is taking care of me x.x
I'm typically a very independent person, so this is difficult.
