Can't We all Just Get Along?
I can see this in myself sometimes. I can be a little imaginative - i.e. unrealistic. I am an artist. I do not deal with practical. I deal with possibilities!
When I brought my recent rescue horses home I admit my motivations might of been a little idealistic. A little horse uptoian-ish. I recently saved two (and soon to be 3) horses from going to slaughter. Anyone knows this is risky. Especially when I did it without even seeing the horses in person. The good folks at the rescue barn do a nice job of providing riding videos and photos so at least you have some idea of what you are getting into. Saving a horse in such dire circumstances is satisfying to say the least. I have thoroughly enjoyed it. The horses are thriving and doing well. I am riding them and enjoying them.
One unexpected issue though. This one completely blindsided me. I was mentally prepared for medical emergencies, unmanageable horses... that kind of thing. What I was not prepared for is this....
