LEAVING A SUNNY SUNDAY VOTE. THANKS FOR THE SUPPORT.
The barn was done, safe and Sterl had her little companion, it was close to home,it was on my way to work, so I could stop at 4:30 in the morning and, for example if I thought I had left lights on, I could pop back over before bed to check. This next chapter is not one I'm very proud of. When Jackie and Sterl were settled in, I started looking for a horse to ride. I found Brazen Virtue, we called him Bray. I went against Dr. Cook's advise and bought him as a 3 year old, to be fair he was a peach at 3, but by the time he turned 5, he was an idiot. Bray was trotter bred Standardbred, he was a bit over 17hh, and he was gorgeous. Wrong reason to buy a horse....live and learn. When I started to have trouble with him, I did what I thought was right, I got help. I had 3 horses now and had them at home, I didn't have a lot of extra cash. I sent Bray off to training school, that helped some, but once back home he started to fall back into his bad habits. This sweet at 3 horse, turned into a 5 year old that tried "to kill" me, I rode him and was just glad every time I got off in one piece, I found I was making excuses not to ride, things like, it's too windy or too wet or I'm tired or he's too fresh. I finally admitted, that I was afraid of him. The last straw came early one cool spring morning, I was feeding, put out hay, Bray was fresh, I was between Bray and Jackie, out of the corner of my eye I saw the foot come up, I remember saying, "don't you dare" that was the last thing I remember, when I came too, I could not find my glasses, I don't think I knew what had happened, I managed to get to the phone and called David to come help me find my glasses. We went to the hospital, his kick caught me on the forehead, 17 stitches and a serious concussion. It was over for me and Bray. When I look back at what I know now, when I look at pictures from that time(today's profile shot, and one more at the bottom) in almost all the pics, Sterly was between Bray and Jackie, she never trusted him. I should have listened to her, she has never let me down, TO BE CONTINUED, LOVE YOU ALL, DONNA LEE & STERLY GIRLY
