5th Pony-Versary


Today is better than any day to start blogging again. I can't believe I've almost reached the two month mark again but the clouds seem to be clearing more and more every day...

Today marks the day I picked up that sad-looking, scraggly thing out of a sand paddock in the middle of nowhere. Heartbroken and looking for a quick fix-and-sell project, I gave into that quiet but worried eye. Following me into that trailer in the dark, trusting the pressure on his tattered lead... he knew better than I that this would be forever and not just a quick pony affair.


I should have known better and luckily through all the bullshit, blood, sweat, tears, and concussions... I have this... part of me. Definitely something I never thought I would have again.


I knew you would be amazing and you would do great things Brantley. I am so lucky to be a part of the journey. And I know for a fact that this is no close to over yet... It's only the beginning.


Someone gave his first pony ride to one special little girl today. I don't think it could've been any other little girl to be honest. With all her time "training" him, I just felt it was right today. After Kate rode him around a bit I said, "What's going to happen... If he goes anywhere, I'll have him and you'll have her." So, Hannah rubbed his neck and patted his back and swung her leg over. Afterwards she kissed his cheek and whispered "Thank you" to him (yes, my heart cried a little).


I love this horse.

THIS is everything that I have been working for. We didn't go anywhere. We just stood while she sat and patted his neck and pulled on him mane. He was a little worried at first but his eyes relaxed and his whole body got quiet. It's funny how they know. I am so proud of this boy.


Every horse deserves to be loved by a little girl <3
This horse is loved by a little girl and a few other girls.
But I think we're definitely the lucky ones.
