As much as horse-people are, well, horse-people, I am constantly amazed at the support and love we have for one another. Friends are certainly a'plenty in this scene, but it takes a seriously good friend to really know all about your horsey trials and tribulations.
|Horse friends are the best kind of friends.|
Some of my blog-followers may remember me mentioning Spotted Dressage on this blog several times. Not only has she been an ear to my Suzie-situation, but she has also provided her expertise (in terms of kinesio taping) for my mare.
Previously, she gifted Suzie and I with a beautiful bridle (which Annie now wears) and yet again, she managed to sneak one past me and surprise me all over again.
When I got home last Thursday, a package was sitting in the kitchen and I tore into it like a kid on Christmas, wondering what the heck Alaina had sent me! I was pleasantly surprised to see not only a halter in Annie's chosen color (this is literally the only purple thing I have for her because I am cheap, lol), but it that it was so meticulously personalized. While I realize most Western-folk go for the bronc nose-bands, I find it kind of endearing and fitting for her face.
So once again, thank you Alaina for the gift. It is something I will surely treasure.
