On Sunday May 17th the newest addition to our herd was born. A little bay filly I call Punkin Pie. The day she was born I was unfortunately in Kitimat and was not able to go meet her. My friend Charlotte Ruse who bred her especially for me was kind enough to send all the pictures I desired.
The first thing I noticed was how delicate and proud she is. This made me wonder if all horses are born that proud. Had Pan and Tonka bean this way when they were born? How much of the natural wonder a horse is born with is jaded by human interaction?
This realization brought to my attention that I have a tremendous responsibility to fulfill. A responsibility to keep as much of her nature as alive as possible.
At first this responsibility overwhelmed me. I've witnessed so many broken horses that the fear that I may be the cause of another one terrifies me. This led to carefully analyzing the relationships in my life. Not just my horse relationships but all relationships.
