Over the past 5 months of O living at the ranch I’ve tried my hardest to be an unbiased, focused on the end goal type of owner. She needed a mental break, physically I wasn’t 100%. This made sense. This was the right thing. If anything I feel like I’ve been very aloof with the while thing.
Today my in-laws surprised me by asking if O could come back today versus next weekend. Of course I agreed, set up the details and hopped off the phone. And promptly made it 5 minutes before I started texting everyone that my horse was coming back! I was literally shaking, bouncing around the house with excitement. As soon as I got those confirmation messages that her spot was waiting for her, and that it was really happening…it felt exactly like Christmas. And then of course, I started crying. Because as much as I want to be aloof, as much as I want to be unbiased, more than anything I really, really just want my horse back. I need her, I missed her.
