This is my first blog post. This blog site is dedicated to my daughter, who loves animals, and our farm critters. I have always been interested in many things growing up, and one of them was the dream of living on a farm with my family and having horses. Eventually the dream came true which meant a lot to me. A large part of the dream coming true was due to all the hard work of my husband also. I hope that I am one of the lucky ones to be able to stay on my little farm for now. We built this stable in 1999, put in a riding arena, and I designed the stable which works out really well. At one time I had a school horse, and had working students. It is not very big, however large enough that I can keep my horses, raise organic vegetables, and keep pastured hens (for eggs only). Add to this two cats, and a few gold fish.
It seems the passage of time gives, and then takes things away. I wish I had the power to change this. I do my best to try to live a life that resonates with me, and to take care of the animals I have and protect them. But sometimes things go awry, and there is not much one can do to stop it. Prayer does help however prayer does not always control the actions of other people. Maybe over time it will, however sometimes there is not enough time. I used to have things I enjoyed, and time seems to be eroding these away. Not only that, others have played a part in taking these things I once enjoyed away.
I also dedicate this particular blog to a horse I once had for 10 years. A horse that was my soul horse. My heart is broken as I type these words. A horse that needed a special owner to watch over her health issues and to get the special care that she needs. I let this horse down as I did not do what my inner voice said to do, and that was to free lease her out until I got over the hump. Well, I let someone I trusted talk me into doing something I really did not want to do, and after this all circumstances went down hill. And the horse suffered briefly due to the disregard of my veterinarian’s diagnosis and recommendations which were ignored. Not only that, but a promise was made to me in 2014 that I would get the horse back in 4 years. This meant the world to me. However, this did not mean anything to a few other people who thought they knew better. Well now, the horse was sold or leased to someone else. So I remain suffering in silence. She was my rock when no one else would listen. She was my therapy. No one understood the relationship I had with this horse. No one. Now she’s gone.
I suffer in silence knowing that I most likely will never see her again. No one cares, if they only knew the pain I suffer within maybe there would be compassion. To never again see her in the field on my farm. To never again hear her whinny. To never again be in her presence. To never again see her everyday. To never again sit on her back and go for a ride. Taken away from me without a care in the world, because of $$$$ and because it fit others agendas and not mine. And I will never stop speaking my truth on this. The reason I write about this is so that other horse owners can learn from my experience. Do not trust the word of others no matter how well you may trust them. Please get it in writing especially if the horse requires certain care or have it set up so that you make sure they get the care needed. I do not want to see anyone else, or animal, suffer .
Mankind is in a sorry state these days, and hopefully the Grace of God will eventually descend down one day to wipe away all the evil that is present in this world. To wipe away the ego and the uncaring and the lack of compassion for both animals and humans. As to Wregal, it appears it is too late for me to get her back. However, I am the type that does not give up hope. With God all things are possible!
