Thank You

I guess it is that time again. I didn’t mark the days, Dec 5th and Dec 10th, on my blog this year, but they do remain the days where Amalia and Apollon drew their last breaths in this world, in 2011 and 2012.

Adding to that, I don’t think I marked the 31 March or the 23 April, which would be where Legacy left in 2011 and Poseidon left in 2012. Truth is, I have almost done good this year. Still, I do believe that I can’t end 2015 without looking back on those four guys. After all, they all played a huge part in my life and I would not be who I am today, without any of them.

And a special shout out to Lise, who lived with us for many years, even if she was never owned by me, she was part of the gang, and left us in July 2011.

Looking over these pictures, I have more regrets now, than I used to. There are so many things I would have liked to do better for my boys and my queen. Like, lose the noseband, and the bridle, which for some reason was only Poseidon who got that across to me. Looking at my riding and how much contact I had on the reins back then, is pretty educational and I know that I (hope I) will do better in the future.

As it is, all I can do is say thanks. You guys rock. The four of you, taught me so much.

In the end, let us not forget my very first horses;

It has taken all of you, to make me the person I am today. I owe each and everyone of you, everything. And this may be cheesy, but if I have lingered in the past for a long time, I do feel like I am ready to move on a little, by now. But I’ll remember you. I’ll always remember you.

All of you.
