First order of non-related business: Denali's Mom's present. We are now waiting on Denali's Mom herself to get the workings fully underway! So you hear me Denali's Mom, send me that picture and let's get that hair in the mail! The other possibility is that we all could send that money off towards vet bills instead, which I am sure would also be a welcome gift. Any opinions? Everything else is set on this end, I just need the things from Denali's Mom.... so hop to it ;)
Second order of business.... I am really sad to say that today we lost yet another school horse legend from my past, good old Sunny. Sunny was the first horse I really fell in love with at my old barn, and I very nearly leased him (but Quincy arrived and it was all over from there!). Sunny was a skinny, narrow, TALL, roaring Thoroughbred with an elephant leg and a major cribbing issue, but we loved him nevertheless. He was so giant that even when Quincy (his gay lover) would come give him sleepy kisses on the ground, they were nearly perfectly nose to nose:
He was an amazing rockstar, despite all of his weird issues. It's so sad that all of the schoolhorses of my teenaged years are all getting so old and fading away. It was over a decade ago that I started riding at the barn where I really first got seriously attached to all the school animals... I forget how old they all must be now.
Rest in peace Sunny. We'll miss you so much.
