As a Mom-Blogger I had a great plan for all the words I would add while posting darling riding photos of my Boo. All the talk about the reading and studying we did, the evolution of horses, the different breeds, saddles, etc. As it turns out all the hard science pales in comparison to the real life and love lessons we are learning.
See, this isn’t just a kid getting to ride a horse. This is great kid who fights hard for all she has and does, who is getting the opportunity of lifetime because of the graciousness of another human being. And that isn’t just any horse, that is a rescue horse getting a second chance at life and love. A chance to learn trust in comfort and kindness, and forget about starvation and isolation.
The beautiful woman giving my child and these horse, 7 in all, these chances is Becky, my first cousin. We haven’t been particularly close but through facebook we just recently reconnected. And we have a lot more in common than we both first realized.

Thank you, Becky!
[I do believe the two of them would follow you anywhere.]
