Even at home, what I cherish the most are the quiet, private moments that I share with my animals. The other day I went down to my pasture' where my older thoroughbred Pete and his pony Tahoe were grazing, to bring them in for the night. Neither had a halter on, there was no need for one. I lead Tahoe by his fly mask and Pete followed because Tahoe is never allowed out of Pete's sight. As we paused while I opened the gate, Pete nuzzled my hand and rubbed his head on my back as if to say "Love you Mom." I am a sucker for that and for me that is worth more that all the riches and ribbons any girl could have. My weeks are filled with many of these little moments and for this I know I am extremely blessed.
Some of my favorite pictures of Uiver and I are not of him doing one movement or the other. They are the ones of me telling him he is good and just enjoying what we are doing.
