Two years ago today

Just realised that two years at about this time of the day my life changed forever!  Ben was delivered to me. 

What a two years it's been.  That horse has tested me in almost every way possible.  I'm also a little bit sad because I had such high hopes when I got him but two years on and with all the things that have happened we're no further along, I haven't yet hacked him out, taken him to a show or anything like that.  Fingers crossed that in another two years I'll have more memories and that a lot of them will be about our achievements.  The first thing I have to do though is to get a job so I can afford to keep him.

Even with all that has been thrown at us I do love my boy so very much and I think he might love me just a little bit too.

I've had cracker about 6 years now and am the same had dreams for her but not materialised.   but hopefully this year she will be going to her first show, even if its only small local and I show her in-hand,  -  think she's enjoys being a field ornament !!   but after getting laminitis last year (sounds funny that when its only mid-feb) she's going to be worked more this year.    have a young daredevil lassie whose willing to ride her, she goes to ruddy fast for me to get on her back.

you never choose the horse, the horse chooses you

I have had Pride nearly 4 years and I am still working up to galloping on the beach and doing a local show, The bond you have with Ben is very special and if he didn't love/ trust you he wouldnt be as good as he is. So chin up and look forward to a great spring and summer. xx

Re: Two years ago today

Just been looking at my old photos of Ben.  The first one is when I first went to see him and try him.  I really don't like this photo as he was so underweight and unhappy, I just didn't recognise it at the time.  The second photo was taken the day he arrived.

With everything you two have been through I'm sure your bond must be stronger than if everything had been plain sailing.  You will value every little thing more now you've really had to work hard for it, hope you have a great 2010 x

Wow! You have come such a long way with him! It's mine and Coc's 2 year anniversary in a couple of weeks (1st March) and I kind of always felt you and me did the whole 1st year of hell together! I woudl see your posts and realise I wasn't the only one going through it!!! Coco with his liver problem which after 18 months we finally got the all clear for and then his strained tendon and Ben with his surgery and all his aftercare, then the bolshy beast horses that developed and now we're actually (touching wood while I type this!!!!) getting to enjoy our boys!!! It has been a rough ride but sooooo worth it and as much as I would rather not have gone through all the stress, expense, worry, misery and hard work I do feel me and Coco learned a lot about each other in that time, trust and love each other and now we can take on the world together!!! Cobgratulations on your anniversary! x
