Tomorrow is D-Day



Yes, tomorrow Dante arrives and begins his new life.  My sister is very nervous and excited.  I'm just excited.  It's a lot easier on your nerves when it isn't your own horse.  I can just sit back and enjoy it all.

This is so exciting.  He looks so lovely in the pictures.  I can't wait to see him in person.

Temporarily, he will be in a stall in a separate barn, but next week, he will be able to move into the stall next to Ranger, across from Cruiser and catty corner to Cole and Starry.  We will have a heard of 5. 

It was about this time last year that my dad's health problems started to escalate, and we could see the writing on the wall--and it wasn't good.  For me, it was worse than for anyone else, because I lived with Dad.  Losing him caused my own life to fall apart, and I am picking up the pieces.  With the lovely weather we have had, I have actually done worse.  It is a reminder of last year.  I am also reminded of all the things he love to do when the weather got warm.  Sunday, I saw that the Chrysler car show was at corner shopping center.  Dad used to go every year, but missed last year.  I broke down. 

I have fallen back into the pit of despair.  Dante to the rescue!  I think he will be just what I need to shake free of the dark feelings.  I can focus on fun rather than sadness.  I can move forward and enjoy life, again.  Oh, wait a minute.  He is Ellen's horse. 

Well, I can live vicariously through her as she starts her new adventures--and I can go on longer rides with her!

We will keep you updated.

I'm so sorry you're still hurting and that the memories are painful. Hang in there. It will be okay. You're right, Dante will be a welcome distraction I'm sure. :D I can't wait to learn more about his personality! He is gorgeous!
