Dear Drayce and Deegan,
I can’t believe it is already 2015. It seems like yesterday I was 9 years old riding my horse around barefoot and without a care in the world. I wish my situation in life allowed me to offer you that same amazing feeling. The feeling of wind in your hair as you race your horses through the fields and the warm snuggle of their muzzle as they nibble on you looking for treats. Nothing compares to the relationship you have with a horse (or mule 🙂 ). Your grandma fortunately still owns some horses and mules so we occasionally get to spend time with them and I can see you love it as much as I did at your age. This past weekend she was in town for The National Western Stock Show to show her mule Sara so we went to see her and you guys just wanted to pet Sara the whole time. I think it is so wonderful that you inherited my love for animals.
Grandma Bonnie showing Sara in the western pleasure class. She only placed 5th in this class but we think she did much better. She did win a first place in driving class though!
Maybe someday you will have your own horses. I know I miss them and I am thankful that I had the opportunity to grow up on the back of one.
♥ your mom.
