Journal of an adopter.

It started with this ad on Petfinder:
"Brandy is a strapping fellow at around 15.3 and 16 years old. He is a Polish Arab and thus is bigger barreled and can easily handle a larger rider. He is Western Pleasure trail broke but hasn't been used for the past 3-4 years due to owner injury. He is raring to hit the trails with a special someone! He is sweet, adorable, dependable and honest. He will make someone a great mount. Sound and healthy ready to go. Month of January only his adoption fee will be half off at only $250. Must have approved application and be placed by 1/31/2011 to qualify. A big sweetheart waiting for his soul mate....could it be you??"

So I went to see him on Dec 31st, 2010...and he came home Jan 1st, 2011 with a new name (Brandon, much more manly!). And a friend, his pasture mate, Tyler.

It had been about 3 years since I had to put my first horse, a SE arabian, to sleep. I wasn't sure I was ever going to get a horse again, I was so heartbroken. I had him since I was 9...but then along came this guy.

(more to come)
