Guys, (especially Chevalin-Wanderlust
peeps!), this is why I've been absent for the past few days. Through some miracle of god, my biggest dream has come true, and that is to have my own horse. I mentioned Chateau Stables where I will be teaching a horse sculpting class--well, through the incredible generosity of the owners Anita and Gloria (a daughter and mom team, which I love), they are letting me board my wonderful baby with them, and I will work three or four days a week in exchange for his board. He came from an auction so he was close to being sent to slaughter! My amazing parents who are not horse people, bought him for me since I had the wonderful opportunity to keep him at Chateau. He was $500.
I decided to call him Dr. Watson
He is just PERFECT. Perfect in every way. He's my dream horse. He's willing, affectionate, kind. He's about 10 years old (the whole barn is filled with old timer horses that Chateau takes wonderful wonderful care of--you'd never know they were old!). He's about 13hh, a 'handy' size they say. I'm kind of short so he works out perfectly for me. He's a little drafty, which I LOVE--he was announced as a Haflinger cross. We don't know what his other half is, but he could be Welsh, Morgan, or Hackney. But he is the most beautiful color ever, SILVER BAY--my most favorite horse color ever. PLUS he has my favorite white marking ever--a snip.
I love him so very much!!!
So, I promise I'll get back to art stuffs (I can't live without that!) and I'll definitely get to some Chevalin RP! I've just been a little preoccupied as of late
And remember, if you want them badly enough, it IS possible to find a way to make your dreams come true. It might take time and patience, and unhappiness on the way, but if you keep working toward it, and you think creatively and make wonderful friends, it just might happen <3
