How We Met

She belonged to a man at my church. I couldn't find anywhere with a decent price and horses for lessons. Melvin offered me lessons and I took them on 2 different horses:Bud and Freckles. My grandfather passed away and I was kind of depressed so I stopped taking lessons. About a year later, a girl named Reagan bought Freckles and started lessons. I started back with lessons on Bud. Melvin thought I was ready to take on a different horse that was harder to handle and that horse was Smokey. She was stubborn and hard to handle. I didn't really like to ride her but Bud was getting to be old. Surprisingly, I became attatched to her. I came to the barn to ride one day to find Smokey with another person riding her. So we left. My mom told me that Melvin was selling her. I cried. I didn't want her to leave. After around two weeks, they cancelled the deal and Smokey wasn't leaving! Around Christmas in 2008, my mom told me that Melvin was selling Smokey. Again, I was depressed. On Christmas day, I opened my presents. I got a rebel flag saddle blanket, a western saddle, a bridle, a riding helment, horse treats, etc. I was happy with them but I didn't know which horse I would use. Smokey was sold. My mom found a present behind our couch addressed to me. It was a JCPenny box. 'Great'I thought. 'Clothes. Boring.' When I opened the box, there was a laminated paper that said this: "All horses deserve, atleast once in their lives, to be loved by a little girl." I was confused. So I kept going though the paper. Wrapped in many sheets of paper was a picture of a gray horse with a bow tied around her neck. Tears streamed down my face. "Well Bailey. I didn't tell you who bought her," my mom said. There wasn't a dry eye in the house. I couldn't believe it! Smokey was finally mine!.

That's an absolutely touching story on how you got her. Similar situation to how we got Berkley, but my daughter got him as an early christmas present. He has had five owners that I know of and will no longer have any more. He will be with us till he is ready to go on to rainbow bridge. Hopefully not for another 10-15 years. Enjoy her as much as we enjoy Berkley. They truely are faithful friends.

Come visit me, Berkley.
