My boy Sebastian. I can't believe he's 18 months already, and even scarier, he's taller than both his sire & dam now o.O Considering warmbloods grow until they are any where from 5 to 7 years old I'm wondering just how tall he's going to get on me. I'm 5'10" so a tall horse won't be a terrible thing, but holy smokes, I don't need a giraffe :) I did ask my mother in-law for a 3-step mounting block for Christmas just in case he gets taller than I'm anticipating.
I'm really missing my dad these past few days, and it's 9 years next month since we lost him. Does it get easier? He'd be 90 and then some if he were still alive. I want to pick up the phone and hear his voice, or get one of his hugs and smell that Old Spice & tobacco mixture that was uniquely my dad.
That said, I am closer to my mom than we've ever been. We talk all the time and joke around, shop together, go to lunch. I'm 43 years old, I missed so much. I plan on making every single year, month, and day with her count from here on out though. Absolutely.
Mom looking out at our lower 40 acres after heavy rains about 2 weeks ago. It had a very strong current in there, nearly took my legs out from under me.
Off to listen to Huey Lewis & make chicken tacos. Go hug someone you love!
