…”Where in this wide world can man find nobility without pride, friendship without envy, or beauty without vanity? Here where grace is laced with muscle and strength by gentleness confined” — from the Ode to the Horse by Ronald Duncan. These beautiful, giving, magnificent horses are my everything. They are my “why,” motivating me in life to work harder, set lofty goals, and step outside of my comfort zone. They are also my “how,” providing me a place of quiet, unconditional love, and a place where I can go, and accomplish something, however small, no matter what is happening in my world. Without any further adeiu, please allow me to introduce you to three of my beloved babies. Serafina, my snuggly but very hot blooded princess, Lucca – the always dependable partner who has taken me all over the country and helped me accomplish dreams I did not think I could ever even hope to make in to accomplishments, and Cassius, the ever charming, kind eyed beef cake that has given Caitlyn and I opportunities that we will forever be so grateful to him for. These are my children. They are my heart and soul and bring my such fulfillment. I tend to talk about them quite frequently so I wanted you to facially meet them so when we speak of them you know who is who . Portrait by @aullmynphotography .
