I was on a bike ride the other night, picking blackberries (they're by the dozens along the Streets and open for picking; we make jam out of them) while W. was working late. Along one of the roads we frequent is a field with 3 horses. Every time I stop to see them, every time they seem disinterested. This time my persistence paid off! One of the horses came by, said hello and we were inseperable. I scratched her head, then she'd bend down and I scratched her ears (she really liked that)'. It was really funny, cause she'd move so I could scratch a different part of her; her neck, her belly... even her be-hind.. lol. Then she'd go back to the face again. Spoiled. I was probably there for about an hour. I'd talk to her and I'm sure she didn't understand a thing I was saying but she didn't seem to mind. She'd just move around so I could scratch different parts.
A lady arrived with a young girl and they came to walk one of the smaller horses. We spoke for a bit and seeing how well this horse and I got along, she suggested I check out the riding school down the street. I thanked her for her suggestion, though I'm not sure I will (not having money, for one, and I don't have much of an interest in riding). Would I like to volunteer with them and get involved with something? For sure. Anything to get me out of the house more, at this point. The horse and I really got along, so I'm quite curious.
Well, whatever happens, this is my new friend. I'd tell you her name, but I'm not quite sure how to spell it :/
She didn't want to stop and pose for me.
I'll keep going by to see her and say hi, if she's around. We'll see how this relationship progresses :)
