Overnight he worsened, the beginning of a couple unpleasant days.
Just before his operation. He was having a ball, flirting with nurses, running amok through the kids ward. Not a care in the world, as kids should.
But the fact remains, she is lonely.
We’ve asked around for another family with horses that could take her, a couple of close calls, but no luck so far. We love the little girl, she’s a great kids pony, very patient, I would hate to loose her, but it’s hard to see her so miserable.
The other option is to add another horse, so she has companionship. Risking double trouble, but I think it would solve the problem, especially now the fences are soon to be upgraded. I’m looking at a Haflinger, a horse breed that has always been very special to me, I learned to ride on one and have ridden many more since then. They’re quiet, sturdy, versatile, with a very sunny nature. They make great kids ponies, but are big (and strong) enough for adults (me!!!!) to ride. Decisions...
Having had bags full with hand-me-down clothes and toys, the kids had a bit of a Christmas week. They’re down to their last week of the term, soon we’ll be catching up with my parents!!!
We’re having a couple of really great things planned to look forward to. A break, yeah... ;-)
