I have been very busy, and have not had the time to go to the barn since Friday. As a mom I am quite familiar with the feeling of guilt, and now I have the added guilt of not spending enough time with Pippi.
The connection I feel with this horse is strong, but I am always worried that not being her main caregiver (feeder, stallcleaner), will lead to a loss of our bond. Hopefully one day I will have a property where she can live with us. Does other boarders worry about losing their bond too?
I love just being with her; playing in the arena, brushing and grooming, or actually riding. Daughter and I stopped by last night, as she was finishing her dinner, and it was nice just to see that she was doing okay. Tonight I am going to miss some of my sons first baseball game of the season, just so that I can spend some time with Pippi. I mean, I went to his scrimmage Saturday...........to this is cool, right?
