A Must Read

Please read this. This soldier is the fourth person to lose three limbs during the war Iraq or Afghanistan, and I think his story should be shared.


The sun rising over the coliseum that I have spent so much of my life showing horses in. It usually feels like a second home, but when I went there for a HUGE show recently, I couldn't help but feel detached. Very mixed feelings going on. But I know I made the right choice.

My fat and unclipped horse living the life of a pasture pony. I wish his damn forelock would grow. Hard to believe that I have not clipped his bridle path since he came home in December. Says a lot...I used to clip every week like clock work, and now he is lucky that I brush where the tack goes.

I am going to be moving to a different town by the first of September. It is time. I need the space, and it will be closer to my new job. AND Bree. I'm going to move my horse off the farm too, in hopes that I will enjoy him more. I have sold all of the training colts I had in with the exception of one, who wasn't for sale anyway and will be going home at the end of August...and I am not going to take anymore. Not right now.

It's hard to explain, but it is something I need to do. And I can't wait.
