Are any of you out there horse mad? Well I am not but my younger sister certainly is. Jamee has wanted a new horse for a while now. Her last horse, Natalie, was killed by lightening a few years ago which was really traumatic and awfully sad. But it was time for a new addition. My sister was very lucky to be offered a free horse, and although they say you should always (or is it never?) look a gift horse in the mouth, she jumped at the offer.
He arrived on Saturday; Jamee is keeping him in some local stables on the other side of town. He is really pretty (as you can obviously see right?) and lovely natured. I am usually quite intimidated by these animals as they are just so BIG, but I felt at ease around him. His name comes with him from the previous owners: Ali B. I am pretty sure it is short for Ali Babar seeing as he is an Arab cross breed, but who knows.
I watched my sister wash him and deal with his tantrum over being hosed (such a wimp) and I forgot how much of a natural she is with horses.
Once he has settled in and she is riding him I will get some better photos, maybe even some fancy fashion shoots?
It has been raining for days here and we are into our fourth day of a flood. It just so happens that the horse is on the other side of the river and my sister cannot get to him, which has been stressful to say the least.
