Today I have started a process of fulfilling my hearts desire, and that is of owning a horse. A year and half ago I was helping care for several horses,, my friend passed away and after a few months the horses were moved to Ohio. I have missed them terribly and still miss them like they just left yesterday. Since the big "F" birthday is approaching I feel as though it is one thing on my bucket list I need to fulfill. Sounds crazy huh, well it gets better...I do not ride nor have I ever been on a horse, but I can muck a barn and brush a horse until he shines. So, I stopped by a farm called "Charlie Horse",that boards horses to start my inquiry, it's a new facility not to far from my home. A beautiful facility, small enough and clean,clean, clean. Ok, so I fell in love. I nearly fell over when I learned what the boarding fees were, I really had no idea so I was shocked. So now I am bummed....but I am not giving up I will still keep looking, but in the meantime I believe some horsemanship (not sure it that is the right word) lessons are in my future. I will be the oldest lady in the class!
