My Newest Love
Meet Battle! He is an Arabian gelding from the the 15-horse stable that I volunteer at every Saturday. I answered an ad on Craigslist for some part-time stable help and am loving every minute of it. For a few hours I feed, water, turn-out, groom, and exercise the horses. The smell of horses, hay, leather and grain makes me very happy.
The owner invited me to take part in a Labor Day trail ride and I was all too happy to join in. I rode Battle and he was a dream. (sigh) I used to have horses as a girl and I have missed it so much. 18 years later and I am back in the saddle again. It's a great feeling.
