There's a new fella in my life. Really it's a summer romance, but I'll take what I can get.
He's very tall, strong but gentle, patient, a bit stubborn, and oh so handsome. He's got several scars, but I think they just make him look wiser. In short, he's lovely. He's the perfect antidote for a crazy spring and start to the summer, and he's a lovely distraction for now. I am a lucky girl.
Let me introduce you to my new love, Darryl.
Alas, he's not mine forever. I am borrowing him from Girl's riding coach. She asked me to show him in a couple of classes at the local Saddle Club shows. I am also taking lessons once a week, so I get to ride him then too. When Girl takes her lessons, I ride Darryl in the arena to get him ready for the shows. So, in a good week I might get to ride him three times!
He's good for my soul (and leg muscles!!!)
