Thats really heart-warming, thanks for sharing!I have a funny story about that actually!
The first horse I ever rode was an Arabian so obviously I automatically fell in love with them. I started reading all sorts of horse books and I was certain that my absolute dream breed/color/gender of horse was a flea-bitten gray Arabian mare.
Then I moved on to loving draft horses and wanting one desperately, but Arabs were still number three, or so, on my "favorites" list.
Eventually I gave up on the whole dream breeds of horse thing because I realized that a great horse could be anything, but I still liked Arabs.
Then, a few years ago my trainer, at the time, decided that she was going to help me get a horse and she knew a woman with two Arabs that needed new homes. She knew that I liked horses with a bit more "fire" so she figured that I could at least look at them and see if I connected with one.
Well, one of them really struck me and I took her home a few days later.
Then, last year, after owning this mare for 2 years, I realized that she is literally my dream horse! She's a flea-bitten gray Arabian mare and I had totally forgotten that dream when I got this mare. It was basically God, fate, what have you, that gave me the horse I dreamed of vividly for YEARS when I was little.
She is totally my perfect match so I must have been on to something as a little one! Lol!
