|Best view of GMHA ever!|
Then, my peeps - Best Eventing Buddy, New Barn Girl, Red Headed Girl, Sugar's Twenty Something Friend, Dressage and Eventing Trainers (and so many Eventing and FB friends) - tell stories about my lil' pinto pony that fill my heart and really make me laugh. Sometimes the laughter is so hard and the stories so raucous that I feel guilt and throw in, "I really loved her!"
|Adventures with Friends|
I will miss looking through those ears. I will miss thinking... I should pull her unruly mane. I will miss the adventures we had, the folks we met together and all the things I planned to do this year with her.
Those big mare ears - ever alert to danger (mostly percieved) and so eager to pose. It was always funny to pull her off the trailer and see the recognition in her eyes. At a show, check! Hounds? Ok, hunting, check! Who is my trailermate today? Must be going to a hunter pace, going to gallop or just a romp with a friend. God, I will miss looking between those ears!
|My favorite - trail riding with|
Yes. I am that spouse married for 50 years, devastated by the loss of the love of my life and then happily remarries 3 months later. We were no less in love but cannot live without that special bond between horse and human. Life would be so bleak without this world...

So, feel free to look for me. The criteria is broad - Big, Jumps Da Jumps and not Ugly. (The Bestest Eventing Buddy feels that beautiful doesn't work for me.) (Shhhh, if "not Ugly" is beautiful, that would be nice!)
Finally, thank you so much for your kind and loving words. And for you folks who really knew her and told stories, it helped keep me sane. Thank you. Words can not convey my gratitude even if I try. Thank you!
