This is huge, for just a few days ago she was a free spirit. We are now starting to work together.
It’s too early to tell exactly what Hrimmi’s guidance-related role will be. But already, she’s assisting me in opening closed doors. There are a few out there who are as smitten with her as we are – for example, Karen Hopp, who says that Hrimmi is one of the most amazing foals she’s ever met – “she’s so calm,” Karen says.
Some literal transitions may also be in the works. Hrimmi is horse number five. Our facility is too small for them all. I am still eyeballing the land across the way, hoping that somehow, someway, I can acquire it and turn it into a horse facility. How wonderful it would be, to have pasturage, an arena, a compost facility. . .
I could not before imagine our having a little pinto foal. And I cannot now imagine what changes are ahead. But I am both looking forward to, and preparing to embrace them.
