I miss these two horses so much; my very first horse and my very first heart horse💕I'm not myself when I can't be around horses. Which is why I'm willing to do whatever it takes to get back in the barn. To get back into the saddle and find myself again. I will work twice as hard from my phone so I can finally have a job that allows me the time to be with the horses I love so much. I will work twice as hard to be able to afford to to take lessons, start leasing a horse and soon enough buy my own horse. I will do whatever it takes to feel the way I feel when I sit on the back of a 1000 pound horse; feeling braver, stronger and more free than I've ever felt before💜 #love#myheart#horses#thoroughbred#quarterhorse#myhappiness
"I have learned things in the dark that I could never have learned in the light, things that have saved my life over and over again, so that there is really only one logical conclusion. I need darkness as much as I need light."
From the first time I met Tomcat ☺️
A little background on Tomcat (pt. 1) he only raced twice, finishing 5th and 6th before his previous owner decided to sell him. I first went to see him late last May (he was in Delaware) and he had just turned 3 so I wasn't too sure about him but I changed my mind after seeing him in person. In early June we had a pre-purchase exam done and the results of both his fetlock X-rays showed bone chips which was surprising as he'd jogged fine for the vet and shown zero indications of having any soreness or lameness issues. I talked to several vets about whether or not this would affect him in the long run and I was told that since the chips hadn't caused much of any damage to him yet, if he had surgery to get the chips removed, there was an almost 100% chance that he could have no limitations or restrictions in the future. His old owner was really empathetic about the situation and how much the surgery would cost so she lowered Tomcat's price by a lot. So I bought Tomcat for $1.

Tuscany! I loved this horse and still dream of him often. In my most recent dream, he was living in my current backyard (but with more wildflowers). Roommate Sarah told me I needed to tell our landlord.. #tbt#thoroughbred
Two days ago Rose, who's been doing very well, stuck her right forefoot somewhere she shouldn't. Yes, that is the same injured leg. She wrenched her ankle and sustained a small wound very close to the fetlock joint. Today she decided she didn't need a bandaged leg and somehow removed the wrap without leaving a mark on it (saved me money by not tearing them up). So now she must wear the cradle of shame, the equine version of the cone.
