Hi there! I’m not exactly sure how to do this, but I guess I should start with some background about myself. This is supposed to be my little outlet so that I can deal with all the stresses of life. I’m not even sure where to start in that case. I guess I should start with my horses, Molly and Maggie. They’ve really been with me throughout it all. They say that diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but I personally think that a horse could beat some old diamonds any day.
As I mentioned in my first post, I live on Prince Edward Island. Yes, it is worth a visit. I’ve lived here for quite a while – ever since I was in my twenties. It seems like I’ve been here forever now that I’m almost forty! This place has so much history for me, I don’t think I could live anywhere else on the Earth. Even without Scott, this island has my heart. This will always be my home. Maybe one day I’ll post some pictures of the farm to really who you guys just how beautiful it is here. The house and barn are gorgeous, and the way the trees wrap around the property is really spectacular.
I first got Molly about twelve years ago, before I was ever married. When I first got her, I wasn’t even sure if I could handle taking care of a horse of my own. We’d had horses when I was really young, but having a horse of your own is a huge commitment. After I graduated from college, a lot happened at once (I’ll talk about that in a later post maybe), and I really felt like I needed a change in my life. So I decided that I’d get back into riding by getting a horse of my own. Molly really got me through that point in my life. We’ve grown together to become best friends, and I wouldn’t trade her for a different horse for all the money in the world.
Maggie, the younger of the two, came just a few years ago. She was a present from Scott, and she may be the best thing he ever gave me. Maggie is a Thoroughbred, a creature that was definitely put on this Earth to race. Her last owner didn’t treat her well, though, so Scott and I rescued her, hoping to give her a better home. She never did take as much a liking to Scott as she did to me, but maybe it was just because of her past. It took a while to break her to be ridden, but now Maggie and I ride down to the stream almost every day. Either way, she fell into the family like it was meant to be, and the rest is history.
Well, I guess that’s pretty much it. That’s all I really have for now. I’m eager to update soon when things happen in my life. It’s all been so crazy lately that I’m not even sure what to include and what to keep off the internet.
If anyone wants to chat or has any questions about Molly or Maggie, feel free to leave a comment. I’d love to hear from other people in the horse-lover community!
