Bel Joeor Sale and Giveaway!

Amanda from Bel Joeor is hosting a big sale on her Etsy site and a giveaway on her blog!  She makes beautiful saddle covers and bags.  I highly recommend checking out her shop and entering her contest.  


Day 15 - If you could speak to any horse, dead or alive, what would you say?

I would tell my first horse Sparky how much I appreciate her.  She was the best first horse I could have asked for, and she deserves to know.

For Dreamy, I would thank her for all of the wonderful opportunities she has given to me.  We literally have done everything together, and she always trusted me every step of the way. 
Our first time going BN and we were clear!
Snappy is the tough one for me.  I would tell her I am sorry.  I am sorry I couldn't save her.  I did the best I could for her, but she was in so much pain at the end. Maybe had I been able to watch her in pain and wait for a longer amount of time, because perhaps the medication would have eventually worked, she would still be alive.  But my biggest fear was watching her suffer for any longer than necessary.  I regret not being able to save her and I feel as though this will haunt me forever.

Our first dressage show, first ever dressage test!
And, oh Ellie.  What would I tell Ellie?  Since I have only known her for ten and a half weeks, I would tell her it is ok to trust me.  That is silly in a way, because I know she will eventually and building trust takes time.  Yet, I can see how much easier it will be once we have that trust firmly established.

This is so interesting to think about! I am sure Snappy knows you did your very best and that your decisions resulted from love and mercy <3

I’m sure she knows you did everything you could. The best thing we can do is say goodbye before they suffer.
