In which it's a happy day, and we wave goodbye to a little friend
Today was a big day for Kaleaf.
|Are you coming to visit me?|
I've had fun riding the little fellow for the last few months.
|American Trail Gear sent a beautiful pink breastcollar|
for Kaleaf, and have promised a matching headstall.
We've done arena work, trails, and just doodling around. But he is not, and was never meant to be, my horse.
As of today, Kaleaf belongs to Jacqui.
|Ten years ago, she gave me a horse.|
Today, I helped Dory give her a horse.
She's got a boarding barn all set up for him on Vancouver Island, and has already started building a barn of her own on her farm property.
She says she's forgotten a lot about having a horse. That's maybe not surprising, given that she's undergone several sets of chemo/radiation to the brain since she owned Fiddle.
|Here's the thing, New Mama: horses need to eat Lots of Grass.|
You will need to remember that, New Mama.
We loaded him up, and we waved goodbye.
|Kaleaf wasn't convinced that he should get in the trailer.|
We convinced him. Imagine that.
I know he and Jacqui (and little Eliza) are going to have a wonderful life together.
Just thinking about it makes me smile.
