Due to much poking and prodding.... I've decided to bite the bullet......remember that blog page I had on this site when Bruce & I first started ranching at Edam?....I'm picking up the reins again (finally). We just got so darn busy ranching, that I never had much time to tend to the keyboard. Bruce always supplied me with alot of content (wit and wisdom from a Ranchers wife). The trials and tribulations of ranch life.....and so the story began.
All my ramblings (and most of my riding) came to a screaching halt when "Rancher" was diagnosed with Stage 4 terminal stomach cancer in June of 2014. We were told by oncologist's to get his affairs in order, they had given him 6 mos. to live. There was no time to spare, as priorities were addressed and tended to. My pen did not see paper again till 2 days before he was moved to palliative care in North Battleford. It was more out of necessity than anything else.
I was in a state of sheer panic, by putting my thoughts on paper, it gave me focus...like putting blinders on a horse (don't worry about what's behind you - just focus on how to tend to what lies ahead). It was right there and then that I realized how much my life with horses had helped me to prepare for braveness and courage in the following days before he passed away. By spending most of my life amoungst a herd of domesticated horses- they had taught me how to live like a horse, to cope by applying their methodolgoies, to live life amoungst this chaos the comlpicated humans had created.
Please joing me in days and weeks to follow as I share with you'all the secrets horses share and what they have taught me about life, and how to deal with life's dissappointments much like a horse would. It has served me well. I use their theories in everyday choices and decisions. It has served me well, has taught me how to accept the bad, appreciate the good and enjoy the "comfort in the herd".
Now isn't this where I'm supposted to attach the "click here" to join button and "pay online to learn how to" . Sorry.....not my style, this is something I have been putting off for far too long.
