Happy Gotcha Day

I can't believe its already been one year since Quest came into my life. I knew, wanted, and prepared to be a horse owner but getting my first horse sight unseen at auction was definitely not on my list of to-dos. I'm so very glad I listened to my gut though and took that leap of faith because I ended up needing that mare as much as she needed me.

She has reminded me to be humble and willing to admit mistake, to not think of setbacks as failures, and to think outside the box for another solution if my first (or second, or third) idea didn't quite work. She has taught me to be brave when people around us doubted, to work hard and enjoy the rewards of hard work, and to always dream big because you’ll never know what you can achieve unless you try. Just for fun I made a video compilation of some memorable moments we've had together- check it out here.

Happy Gotcha Day, mareface. Here's to many more years to come <3
