a year

 It has been a year that Major has been gone. It seems so long and also like yesterday.

I'm sorry for the lack of updates. Things with Miles are going really well! We've had great progress and are moving into some longer rides. I'm not sure why I haven't written, I think about it, then the thought of sitting in front of the computer (after doing that all day) does not sound appealing.

I've been pretty lost, even with Miles, and Beau and friends, and everyone else. A Major-sized hole that can't be filled, only marked off with caution tape and walked around for awhile, till you get used to the hole being there and it isn't so scary. I'm not there yet.

I'm seeing the same trails through different ears, and it still doesn't seem right. But Miles can make me smile (especially when he nickers at me as I walk up to his pasture), and sometimes I forget long enough and have fun, the process will be long. I'm working on moving forward, even if it is to a very different trot.

different ears, same trails

  1. This transition is so difficult and my thoughts are with you. I bought a young colt after my heart horse was euthanized way too young at 13 and immediately dove into the role of teacher as we worked on our partnership. The doing, the teaching, occupied my mind. But my heart really soared once my young colt started teaching me. In time I was able to blend myself into the partnership while never forgetting my first heart horse. It is possible to have more than one, but they will never be the same. 🥰
