Hello, Blogland

It's been a crazy month.

I moved.
I love moving.
My hair is brown???
But I am alive and well.

My car isn't.
And I have a new man in my life.

Everybody, meet Indy.

:P
I'm going to love this horse. You know how, way back when, I got on Runkle and knew immediately he was mine? Well I got on Indy, knew immediately he was mine, but the horse knew I was his, too. He got soft through his back and his jaw. For me. How Saddle Club is that?


Runkle was my heart. I still miss him terribly almost every day. But now, on the other days when I don't miss him quite so much, it's because Indy did something so... Indy. Something so sweet and gentle that Runkle would never do. Runkle was all about pushing my comfort level, kicking down my boundaries, and teaching me a lot.

Thanks Dr. Mark & Unionville Equine - again!

Indy... makes it more about me. He is the dearest, most biddable animal I've ever worked with. He takes treats really gently and never gets mouthy. I can go on a trail ride around the back of the property and actually enjoy myself, not sit tense in the saddle waiting for a deer to jump out and kill us. He doesn't pick fights with the other horses. He doesn't get pissy in his stall or paw in the cross ties. He just stands there and lets me brush him, talk to him and kiss his nose.


I still need time to heal. But the more time that passes, the more excited I am for what I have now and what will be in the future. I couldn't be more thankful to Keri for putting us together.

I'm really proud and happy to have this horse as part of my family.

  10. OMG OMG OMG So excited. I literally refresh your blog daily (is that too stalker like I hope not) to see if you posted. I may have squealed today when i saw you had something in June and then THIS! YAY. And you know Dr Mark!! I love him he is great.(His wife is pretty cool too LOL)....I love Indy and he looks PERFECT. I understand you still miss Runkle and we all will miss him with you, but it does help to have someone else to help you heal I am pretty sure Indy is up to it (very flashy too love him!). PS sorry about the car. That sucks. My husband was also in a wreck this past month. NOT FUN

  12. So happy to read (mostly) all good things for you! (Sorry about the car, glad you're ok!) Indy sounds like the perfect new kid and he came around just when you needed him most. I saw him on your instagram, and have been waiting (maybe not very) patiently for you to come back to blog world and share him with us. I hope all good things are coming your way!
