My life feels like a twilight zone.
|Drying from a good rinse|
I'm not riding, not prepping for anything. I'm not hanging out at a show barn 7 days a week and I haven't worn stretchy pants since... Wednesday last week? Cuna, in keeping with his reputation as "the easiest horse in the world" is adjusting quite well to the new place without causing any drama. The on-site owner isn't horsey, so he doesn't feed into my would-be obsessiveness.
Instead, Cuna is just a horse living in a field. He's happy. He has food, friends, and water. He does love having me come out and scratch his itchy spots, groom him, and put fly spray on, but that's our relationship right now. That plus cookies.
I'd be completely crazy, but Redheadlins is keeping me entertained at the track. I do love petting shiny horses and watching them go fast. I'm back to the show barn for some work this week and maybe I'll get to ride a few.
|The best view|
Honestly, I haven't hit the part where I'm dying for a ride yet. Right now, the only ride I want is this one:
These cool summer mornings are making me crave our long solo rides in the hills, exploring new trails and galloping ridge lines. I miss knowing I'm on the best horse in the world and that he'll take care of me no matter what.
I miss seeing the world through his red ears.
|So good at cuddling|
This is a phase and things will change sooner or later, but I don't know what to make of it. I'm letting the stress and tension ebb away. I'm trying new things. I'm working out. I'm sitting on the floor and cuddling with my little beagle without worrying too much about the future. Cuna is where he needs to be right now.
