It’s probably no surprise to anyone who reads this blog, but with Aiden off to his new home on Thursday, we were thinking we’d start keeping our eyes open for another project. Then the woman who facilitated Aiden’s sale happened to mention she knew of a horse that needed a new home.

Which meant today we went to see some people about a horse. She’s a 5 year old mare, not started under saddle but well socialized. She’s a sweetheart who just needs someone to get her going. We hung out with her for a little while and left to talk it over. But it really wasn’t hard to decide what we wanted to do. We got back in touch with her owners, and let them know we wanted her. All that’s left is to arrange transportation.


So, in spite of being not fully adjusted to the idea of Aiden being gone, we now have this new cutie to look forward to getting to know. This is certainly our fastest transition from one project to another. Left to our own devices, we probably would have waited at least a few weeks. I don’t mind, though. Aiden was always fun to ride, but he was pretty well settled by the end there. I wasn’t actively working on anything with him because K was mostly riding him. This little lady is going to bring about a pretty different sort of learning.

Besides, Brian started a horse last year. That means it’s my turn. Since he’s got his hands full with Nevada, this girl is going to be mainly my project.

Woh! Hey, look at you reading this entire post!

That's a bit of an accomplishment in our attention-deficient age. Kinda makes me wonder if you like to read things that are even longer than blog posts? Like ... books?

If so, you're definitely our kind of person. Which means you might enjoy a horse-centic read? Click here to read a free sample of, A Man Who Rides: a novel about horsemanship and love.
