The reason I love my horses....

I have been having a hard time most recently, my little was killed while the horse hauler I hired was loading her and they are refusing to take responsibility - it is truly one of the worst times of my life ( the worst being when i lost my mother ). I just finished talking with my lawyer and so i went out to muck out my horses stalls ( sometimes that makes me feel better ) and I had my breakdown - could not stop crying! Then something amazing beautiful, gentle quarter horse, Olive, came over to me and put her head beside mine and nuzzled my tears away! She stood there with me for a half an hour or so before i finally got myself together......then I realized that I need to be grateful for what I have and do whatever i can to protect the lives of all horses that are vulnerable to the cruelty and inexperienced care of some horse transport companies. I guess I have had a pretty sheltered life and being exposed to such arrogance and lack of compassion has thrown me for a loop......but i am going to fight for my little filly, and other horses, so this does not happen to another family. Please go and hug your horses!!!

What a terrible thing to happen! I'm so sorry for your lose

I know whenever I'm upset, my horse always just "knows", he cuddles me and does silly things to make me smile, horses are the best hugs!

Rest in Peace

Selena, as much of a b*tch as she is the majority of the time...If I come to the barn upset she comes right up and will wrap her neck around me and snuggle....

I'm so sorry for your loss. I don't know what I would do in your position...

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

Yes, I am at a complete is still very surreal to me, unfortunately the barn manager sent me the pictures and they have been haunting me for the last couple of weeks. They severed her leg off. I have been spending a lot of time with my two girls lately.....they are both quarter horses but they could not be any more different, just like kids....I guess. Olive is a sweet, kind soul - she has the kindest eyes I have ever seen with a horse. Tiffany is a princess....she challenges me and keeps me on my toes but any work with her is extremely satisfying because she is so responsive.....she is amazing! Thank god I have a very supportive husband that loves me and has my back, I know that things will get better in time....
