I visited Lilly at the barn today so I could check up on her and let her out to eat some grass. While she munched on grass I washed SMB and bell boots and rolled freshly washed standing wraps. With any luck I'll be using the boots and the wraps will be collecting dust!
I hung the boots outside on the hitching post to drip dry in the sunshine and Lilly came over, I thought, to see what I was doing. I stopped hanging the boots and turned around to face her. She very gently put her head on my chest. I wrapped my arms around her head and we shared a brief moment together. Then she went on her way, eating more grass.
It felt like she was thanking me for helping her feel better.
I love that mare more than I could ever express with words... I would do anything for her.
