I’ve met a kind, patient and loving gelding named Scooter who I have decided to lease for a while. His human loves him very much, but due to her long hours as a Real Estate Agent is unable to spend as much time with him as she’d like.
I met Scooter while taking riding lessons from a woman who used to train Romeo a few years before I bought him. Gail felt I would enjoy him and indeed, he is one of the sweetest, most gentle horses I’ve ever met. Glad to please any human, he loves kisses, is quiet and calm and as it turns out, he knew Romeo.
When I communicated with Romeo last week about my decision to lease Scooter, knowing that my time with this gentle boy will help me heal, teach me better riding skills and give him a chance to know how special he is….Romeo’s response was immediate “Of course this is the next step. I’ve been nudging you in this direction. You’ll feel better by doing this”.
My heart is still very much full with my beloved Romeo….I don’t know if or when I’ll ever own another horse. But in the meantime, I can give Scooter the love and appreciation he most certainly deserves and in so doing, know that I am honoring the beautiful bond that Romeo and I were brought together to celebrate…and to inspire in others.
