Window Shopping

I was going to do a funny post and started looking for a picture I took a long time ago (never found it.) Instead I came across the photos of me riding Denali and it just made me sad that I might not be able to do that again. A friend offered me to come ride her horse, but it's just not the same. Sitting on Denali, it always felt right. I don't know how to explain it. I'm sure some day I'll hop back up on her back, she may be 30, but I hope to do it again.

 I keep having this reoccurring dream of us being in a round pen and she keeps pointing at her with her head back while we work. I finally crawl up on the panel and she comes over to me, points again and I hop on. Somehow we end up in a field galloping. No saddle, no bridle, just the wind and the sun. It always makes me feel so happy and sitting on her back feels the way I remember it. Who knows, I might just be getting a glimpse of heaven. I'm fine with that.

So, since I own a pasture pet, I often window shop. I've in love with the Georgian Grand breed and just love this boy. Although if I'm looking for a horse I don't want a baby. I want an old, knows everything, been there, done that, bomb proof horse. After that, maybe I can graduate to a baby. I did it wrong the first time (don't regret it) but next time I'm doing it right.

Prince is gorgeous! I have a friend who bought a horse from Flying W Farms and she loves him. :)

That sounds like a really amazing dream. Who knows, maybe it will come true. :)

At least you're thinking a bit more positively now- it wasnt too long ago you had posts about getting out of the horse world entirely. Emotional progress!

I've never even heard of a Georgian Grand. I'll have to go look it up.

Can't you sit on Denali and go for a hand walk, like have someone just hand walk her w/ you on her for 10 minutes? It might make you feel better....and her?
That Fresian sport horse baby is toooo cute.
