Last week I mentioned that I was going to write about my parents and family this Thankful Thursday. However, the week got past me too quick this time around and I have not been able to reminisce over the things I wanted to share nor locate any pictures.
That does not leave me without things to be thankful for though. Nor does it dismiss my family and how I feel about them. It only means that when I do post my family Thankful Thursday that it will be a long well thought out one.
Today though I realized that things to be thankful for keep filling up each and every week. No week goes by that something wonderful has not happened.
Did I mention the horse trailer? Grinning BIG here!
Long story short my old beloved horse trailer was stolen about 6 years ago now and I have not been able to replace it since, until yesterday. Well it’s not a complete replacement as my old trailer was a 4 horse stock which I adored, and the new trailer is an older well used small two horse straight load that needs a wee bit of work, but is serviceable. If having a horse trailer again is not enough to be thankful for, the trailer belonged to one of my clients who is selling it to me for at least 1/2 of its worth, and if that is not enough to be thankful for, I will be bartering it out in massage.
I just died and went to heaven!!! I got angel wings!!! There is nothing I love more than loading up one of my horses and traveling to some far off place to ride, or show, or just hang out. No more borrowing trailers and worrying about bringing them back in the same condition they left in. lol Anyone who owns horses knows that, “that” is a fiet of its own.
Okay I think there is something else to be thankful for this Thankful Thursday.
Yep there sure is, and it’s name is The Little Cayuse Ranch who is a Spanish Mustang breeder in New Mexico. Why am I thankful for The Little Cayuse Ranch? Well, because they have offered a home for Theory. Why is that such a big deal? Well, because what I haven’t told the world is that Theory has vision issues or I believe she does. She has separation anxiety, and suffers from self preservation anxiety. All of which she could overcome with maturity, but needs a special situation where she can develop confidence and freedom to run and find peace away from people constantly bombarding her. Once I realized she would not be safe if I sold her (or gave her to a dear friend), I took her off the availability list and began looking for a perfect free home. I had a few folks offer and a couple others tearing their hair out trying to find a proper situation, but in the end The Little Cayuse Ranch gave Theory her answer. They have a large spread with a small band of Spanish Mustangs mares and a stallion whom they keep separate. They breed their mares discriminately and are all about what is best for the horse. Always putting the horse first before their desires or potential sales. Theory will be able to grow up playing with other youngsters then enter the mare band. She will move out to the ranch end of June. In the meantime she’ll receive a bunch of training here preparing her for her future.
I AM SO RELIEVED!
Okay is that enough? Ohhhh Nooo! I got MORE!!
The Little Cayuse Ranch is so strict about how many horses they manage that they only agreed to take Theory if I took one of their older horses in trade. I DID NOT ASK FOR THIS!!! They offered one of two horses they had, a coming two year old filly, or a mature gelding. The filly happens to be one from a breeding combination I have been wanting to tap into for ummm… say well over 4 years now. Not only that, but she happens to be a filly I have been watching since her birth in wishfulness that I could someday have her finally giving up that hope this past year. Oh and not to mention, her dam is a mare who is one I also had dreamed about owning and tried to figure ways to buy her three different times over the past 4 years only to fail at each attempt.
So I said yes with a double edge sword of sheer JOY. I am thankful for Theory’s future life with The Little Cayuse Ranch, and I am thankful that this highly desireable filly has finally come home. Well in June. She will never see Arizona. Home for her will Colorado.
My heart is HUGE right now! As I drove home last night with my horse trailer in tow, I had a powerful feeling of humility and awe struck realization at how fortunate I am and that the Creator is talking to me in every way possible through these Sacred Gifts. I will never take these wonderful Sacred Gifts for granted. Never! I’ am humbled… I am thankful…
