On the bright side, I at least have 13yrs of memories. Plus I have to say reading some of the other blogs makes me feel better. Reading about Jen and Connor, from cobjockey.com conquering cross country jumps and building a lasting relationship, makes me glad that I can say "I have been there, had that and it was worth all the work to get there."
I will always miss Barry, but I still have great horses in my barn. I joke with Mom that Rosemary bears Barry's sign of approval. She is all black except for her star, two socks and a snip on a coronet. She also has a spattering of grey hair along her left flank, which I think is Barry's touch of grey.
We all enter the world of horses knowing they will not always be there, but if you make the most of the time you have, the memories and lessons learned will last a lifetime. Give your ponies a hug and enjoy the summer day.
