I just wanted everyone to know that, even though it sounded like I was being a smart ass, it's my way of dealing with grief. Like I am a tough girl, or something.

I want to take this moment to thank you all for your support on the sad day and hope I didn't offend anyone by my callous remarks.

The outpour of support lifted my spirits greatly.



Thank you, All!

We hear that it's better to have loved and lost then never have found love. I lost many times... I know all about tears... I love horses but never had the unique priviledge of having my own.
I never experienced the ultimate bond of riding in harmony with a horse that trust me. Now that I feel your pain, I realized the cost of all the magical moments you lived. Remember you're one of the few lucky ones on earth.

I wish everyone could experience the horse bond. Stryker was a cantankerous one. Couldn't trust him one bit on a ride because he had issues, but was a sweet horse when no one was on him. I don't know what he went through before I acquired him.

I wish I could win the lottery and open up a riding stable for people who have never gotten the opportunity to enjoy the ride. You would be the first one invited.

I wish you the opportunity to share the equine bond with a special horse.

My previous horses? I would just ride off into the sunrise or sunset on.

I so appreciate your words and I feel like you have been cheated.

Tell me more, if you care to share, MV.

Why can't you be lucky too?

If that is too personal of a question, then don't answer.

I now live in Arizona where I am surrounded by ranches and beautiful riding trails. Once as a teenager, I spent a summer riding (western) up north on the east coast. My dream since then was to have my own horse one day.. Here, many of my neighbors do, but go figure the zoning changes on my side of the street. Boarding is not an option - honestly I couldn't afford it, besides my free times are spent at home with my dobie, who entertains me so much w/his 4 fury pals! He runs and my eyes see an Arabian prince. He fills my heart w/love. He is almost 6 so I need a plan to avoid drowning in my own tears in a few years. My plan is to get involve with the horse rescue organization in my area where my time and dedication will help their cause. I know I will receive back a lot more than I can ever give. You make me think of all of this so much that I'll be driving up there today... just to send good vibes your way.

Yep MV,

You brought tears to my eyes.

I think your plan is a good start!

I've moved around a lot, but my home State is Kansas and I was fortunate enough to have a Grandfather that had that desire for horses.

I have a favorite cousin that still lives in Kansas. As kids, whenever my family came to visit Grandma and Grandpa, she was always able to conjure up a couple of horses for us to ride.

I've lived in some weird places just so I could have a horse.

I feel your desire. I get it! I pray you get your desire.

Kiss your Dobie for me!

I am thinking about spending the money that I am saving without a feed bill on riding lessons.

Went to Tractor Supply this morning and started on the wrong aisle. Found myself going straight for the horse food when I was actually there for chicken food.

Best wishes for you.

I appreciate your condolences.

I just want to say,

We pick the lifestyle we want.

I never wanted children.

Always loved animals and art of said creatures, yet the only animal I am able to draw are horses.

I worked two jobs to help me get my credit straightened out and save a down payment for my first property.

So, now I have my property with room for a horse, but no barn to store hay and no horse.

Now I have to concentrate on building a barn. My significant other wants a shop. So, we are butting heads on what needs to come first. I think since this is my place, the barn comes first.

On the other hand, I wouldn't mind a shop.

I feel like I will be hauling myself to the vet to be put down before I get a barn.

I am going to be too old to ride before the barn is here.

Just a little rant there.

Now I am agitated and going to further investigate riding lessons.

BTW, English saddles make me feel intimidated.

I hope I can "get" this!
