I would love to see her galloping around her field always chasing the boys. To hear the squeak of the saddle under us as we jog down a trail would be music to my ears. I would give anything to be able to cry in the corner of her stall on the rough days when it feels like the whole world is against me. I would even take getting bucked off her back when she is having a feisty day if it would bring her back to me.
Okay I guess this is a word full Wednesday post after all. I should have known I couldn't just post a picture of Smelly Ellie without words. She was the greatest horse I could ever imagine owning and I can only hope that my future horse is half as amazing as she was (and that I am fortunate enough to own a horse again.) She taught me everything I know about riding and in a hurry since you had to learn how to be a good rider to stay on her back long. She was truly my first child and I will miss her until the day I die.
