The wheels of time

After losing Basse I was at a loss. I didnt know where to go or what to do, and kind of sunk into a lethargic state.

I wanted to ride and feel like I felt with her, but how could I, without her?

Yet, five weeks, exactly, after Basse left me, Cargo B, a 12 yo Holsteiner gelding, 17.3 hh (180 cm) stood in her old stall.

But it was not until today, two months after her death, that he and I agreed we'd be each others best buddies. I am hoping for many good years with him, and that he can take up the empty space in my heart.

HA! And you thought I'd stopped knitting!!
When I get a picture, I MUST show.. I spun yarn for, and knitted, Cargo!! ;-) We were having a creativity contest this weekend, and I just had to knit him. I myself think I was being quite ingenious, and invented a new technique (As usual when I get involved in something), now I want to knit Basse, and lots of others horses, to keep my Breyer horses company. And a big Cargo.

Have a nice day

Lene, it's wonderful to have you back -- and even more wonderful to meet Cargo B. Long life and happiness to you both!
