I say stupid things like this on a daily basis. All of my horses have songs too. I won't burden anyone with that. I can't explain it except to say that there is joy in knowing I have all of these wonderful creatures to adore.
Lately I've been overwhelmed. It's tough to be me sometimes, but I wouldn't want to be anyone else. JK and I have a baby horse that we broke for racing. In the last week she's needed to start to gallop. This meant that I had to be here to accompany her - on THE PUNK.
So Punk and I are galloping about the farm with the baby. Punk basically waits for this point in the training. He LOVES to gallop. I didn't know it, but I really needed to do this. We are not fast galloping. Just easy, rhythm around the farm. I'm in the center and it's perfect. What a wonderful thing to do on a sunny day. I missed it so much. Don't get me wrong, I love the dressage and the jumping, but a nice relaxing gallop is natural to me. It gives me something that nothing else can. Punkie and I melt into one entity. It's comfortable and natural.
Thank you Punk. You've still got it!
