So I am supposed to be blogging daily this month on education, or our school or fieldtrips, or something at least partially related to learning, but this morning all I can think of is this:
This is Jim, our sweet rescued retired Mennonite carriage horse, and he is on his way to a trail riding outfit in Blue Ridge, Georgia later this morning. They will give him a great home, he will have a fun job, and I think he is going to be happy.
Trouble is, I am going to miss him terribly, and so will my other horse, Sadie. They love each other.
There are all sorts of reasons why this is a good thing for Jim, perhaps the best thing for him, but I am still sad to see him go. Sadie is my first horse ever and has a special place for me, but Jim, who came along quite by accident, has been squeezing his way in my heart right next to Sadie in the three months that I have had him.
I will miss him.
