Some horses come into our lives and quickly go, others stay a while and make hoofprints on our hearts

Somewhere, somewhere
In time's own space,
There must be some sweet pastured place....
Where creeks sing on and tall trees grow,
Some paradise where horses go.
For by the love that guides my pen,
I know great horses live again.

I haven't blogged very much this year at all.  This has not been due to having nothing to blog about, we have had a lovely summer together, Wolfie, the ponies and I and we have been busy.  My beautiful pony Honey was put to sleep on the 3rd August.  A blood test in January showed she had elevated liver enzymes and the following months involved a liver biopsy, more blood tests and a lot of soul searching on my part.  I didn't feel I could blog this part of our journey, although Honey remained symptomless right up until she was put to sleep, by writing down all my thoughts and fears would have made it all seem too real.  I will write about it in more depth on the ponies blog.  We have taken another pony, a new companion for Buttons.  She is a 3 year old black Shetland mare called Bess.  I miss Honey very much, I was devastated at losing her and she will never be replaced, but Bess deserves this chance now at a happy safe life.  So we carry on and begin the next chapter.
