After I lost my horse in Feb of 2012 I lost most of my heart too. Cherokee was my heart horse. I didn't ride at all last year. Actually the last time I rode was Cherokee clear back in novermber of 2011. Haven't been on anything since. Really didn't have the desire to ride.
The end of Feb. of this year I decided Cherokee wouldn't want me to just give up and say I am done just because of him. So I started looking. I fell in love with a mule. Had arrangements made to go look at him and because of circumstances on my end was unable to do so.
So I kept looking went and tried a few, looked at a few and inquired about a few to. Not a one seemed to give me that "This is the ONE" feeling.
I realized this week that someone had a plan for me as the mule I liked became available. I truelly feel that the reason I turned down all the others and didn't get that feeling is because this mule and I are truelly meant to be together. I pick up my new trailbuddy on Sunday.
