“If he were only a memory I could call him back – horse of my childhood who continued with me into womanhood. But he outstrips memory, runs through my veins, pulses luxuriously like the still yet trembling fissure of hallowed light around a full moon on a blue-black night above hemlocks.” -unknown
Wow, six whole years since I got Phoenix back!
I was curious to figure out exactly how much of his 27+ years of life he has been my boy so I referenced his registration papers this morning. The first time I owned him was from July 1996 to December 2001, so over 5 years the first time. Now these 6 years for a collective over 11 years spent together. So while I haven’t had him for even half of his life I’m his longest owner and I will be his last owner.
I really have a hard time expressing just how much this horse means to me. He is just such an amazing horse, friend, and furry soulmate to me. I’m not sure I will ever find another horse I feel as at home with both on the ground and in the saddle.
Here is a link to my post from our 4 year reunited anniversary which I think really sums up my feelings on getting him back if anyone is interested.
It is a privilege to have such an amazing horse in my life and I look forward to taking advantage of all the time we have left together!
