Sept 13 – This is Charm, the first horse I got to ride after a very, very long absence from horses.  He’s a sweet boy with a very rough trot.

I am taking riding lessons, and I love it.  I get to meet some new people. I get to learn about horse care. I get to plan to have my own horse! That, of course, is the best part.  It’s a ways off yet (a year or more – fencing, housing, etc. must be acquired).  But the horse is going to happen after 43 years of me asking for a horse for my birthday.
