Sitting beside my aunt as she slept I found an outlet playing on the internet looking at horses –never mind it was not the “right time”. I had yet to rehome my current horse and was very stressed in my personal life…but I was just “playing”- right?

I was browsing DreamHorse (with out putting in the mileage locator- I was just “playing”- right?) when I came across a little horse that captured my attention. I kept going back to him repeatedly. He was unlike anything I had ever ridden or wanted (my previous mounts were all hot OTTB types –that I loved!). But a smallish (15h), grade, LOUDLY colored camp pony became the only horse I wanted. I looked at his photos and watched his videos frequently…prompting my mom –looking over my shoulder to ask –“what is that?” “Does he bray?” but my aunt (though I am not sure she could actually really see the photos) proclaimed him a fine horse that I should go try at once!
I kept telling myself it was not to be –no money, no time, and no business buying a horse. Then my aunt died - I got the call at work. As I was walking out of the building, my phone rang. It was my friend.
“So, I have surgery and treatment in two days…let’s get out of here and maybe go try that horse.”
But I was heading to a funeral…right?
