Wishes and Horses

Horse passed the vetting yesterday. He passed for the general exam, hoof testing and all flexion tests. He passed on the X-ray pulled of a bump on one ankle. He passed his metabolic blood test and I am waiting for the pre-purchase drug test result (taken as a precaution, my trainer and the vet feels there should be nothing of concern there). Price of horse is firm, I either accept or I don't.

Last night to clear my head, I took the whole family out for ice cream. We've been having some thundery, stormy weather from the heat yesterday and there were big grey clouds in the skies above the ice cream shop. And there, clear as could be, in front of the clouds above the store was a rainbow! I pointed it out and my kids immediately got to wishing.

Me too. Rainbows can only be good omens, I'm taking it as a bit of a push from the divine to just do this.

What an expensive addiction we have. Can't be happy without a horse of our own!

Congratulations! It sure sounds like you have yourself a new horse who happens to be a great fit for you!

And perhaps he can have "Rainbow" in his show name....

I do indeed think that often the heavens do tell us what we should do. You have been looking and waiting for so long and been through so much...somehow I think the angels might be smiling on this purchase.

You just reminded me of the saying:
