Lately I’ve been anxious because its getting closer to the time for the horses to come home to us. Im stupidly excited but mostly worried im forgetting something. I know it won’t be perfect but I’d like to be as prepared as possible. I mean — who wouldn’t when it comes to, two, thousand pound animals that will be living in your backyard? Im grateful to live on the farm that we do so we can literally live with our horses but I know my itchy feet — all of a sudden i cant get up and move away, which is something i always do however i think this might just be what i need to settle down. Because I can ride. I can take them anywhere and ride. It’s one huge step close to my film ranch dream!
It’ll be a totally new and refreshing version of freedom that I have dreamed about since I was a child. Cowboying up and down the American frontier, though I hadn’t expected to be madly in love too but im glad I am.
This long weekend we took a trip to see the horses at the rescue, seeing as we were going to be in that area anyway. Hidalgo is slowly beginning to recognise us but not quite, however Lorie seems excited to see us each time we show up. With time Hidalgo will recognise our voices when he is living with us and that’ll be good for all of us. It was a wonderful morning because we actually got to be there when Lorie and Hidalgo met eachother for the first time. It was incredible to witness even though Lorie was not much of a fan, but Hidalgo can seem pushy due to the blindness. Lorie hasn’t yet twigged that hes blind and isnt actually trying to be rude. It was such a great time i totally forgot to mention i wanted to ride Lorie bareback. Oh well. Next time will come around soon enough!
Right now i’m reading a lot about training and getting ready to start my books about softness when it comes to horses. It’s quite exciting. Whilst i work on my novels i will probably blog a lot more about the horses and our adventures (if ever covid subsides). It’s often tough to think of what to write when all you do… is sit at a table and write 24-7. Haha. I’ve found some great accounts on instagram like @MustangMaddy that i believe will be a huge influence to how i work with my two. I can’t wait to start and i hope i can grow as a trainer.
