Dream is a +/- 27 year old chestnut quarter horse mare. She only looks about 16-18, has great feet and is an easy keeper. Her pony companion of many years died early Wednesday morning; Dream was extremely upset, pacing and whinnying for hours after he died.
Her owners had heard that we were looking for a companion horse for my mare, and they offered us Dream. Zilla was able to settle Dream down, and by the time I got home from work last night they were hanging out and eating together (Zilla is food agressive and a pig, so them eating together made me super happy).
It is only through labor and painful effort, by grim energy and resolute courage, that we move on to better things.
