I decided to leave all horse-related jazz under "Wednesday Wings" because she was a sweet lady and you can't beat the alliteration.
I stumbled upon an awesome volunteer opportunity where I get to do everything I'd love to do with horses (basically anything but ride them). Some of the horses in the volunteer program are rescue horses the ranch takes in and others are ones that are boarded there but their owners can't or don't get out often. I got paired up with an elderly gentleman (28 years young) named Rowdy:
He is such a sweet love bug!
Right now I spend lots of time brushing him (he's shedding which is like Mario shedding but 50x more surface area) and we walk around the ranch and look at the sights. After just one day with this horse I fell in love with him.
