Comfort for my soul

My RAC posts this year have been about finding a comfort level for my horse..this post has a bit of a twist to it.  In the span of 4 days, I lost a family member and a treasured herd member. Both these females had a big influence in my life. Having been out of town for nearly 2 weeks, today I had a chance to take a break from catching up and go for a drive. Today, I deemed an "Honor Drive" .....I always get a bit awkward on the first hitching after a break..Legacy seemed to notice and never moved a foot..helping ME to be comfortable....Our drive was nothing short of splendid! My new carriage is amazing...Legacy shows none of her minor previous objections to change of direction.  She has plenty of room to step over without bumping a shaft now, and she loves it! I actually saw her bend nicely today, instead of being ever so slightly resistant and worried.  My drive was comfort for my soul. Horses can be such great healers for our souls...I am sure that most of you probably agree. When I was about ready to quit driving, Legacy gave me that "ears up ready to go somewhere" vibe...so we drove a bit longer...when we are that in tune with our horses..that is comfort beyond words. The photo is from last year,  but it could have been taken today....Legacy is starting to shed though, and our grooming time will greatly expand...I don't mind.....just that much more bonding time for me and my equine!
