And Then There Was One

It was heart breaking to watch Bob run along the fence line, chasing the trailer as it left.  Long after the trailer was gone Bob ran (and ran) around the large pasture, frantically crying out.  He knew he was now alone and he sure didn't care for the idea.

Six months ago we had four horses.  In fact for the past fifteen years we've always had at least two horses.  How odd to think that the horse I purchased last June is now the ONLY horse I own.  The sobering thought makes me uncomfortable.  Bob is all I have.

Tonight Bob has settled down nicely although he's probably out there tonight feeling lonely and a bit vulnerable. 

I can relate...


  1. Awwww....poor Bob! Give him a smooch for me, okay?

  2. Sooner rather than later for saddle horse number 2. For all of your sakes.

    Take care.


  3. Now Bob will get ALL the love- not always a bad thing, right?

  4. I'm with Bill. A friend soon. . .

  5. Awww, Bob does look a little lost peering around the barn like that. I hope he finds a new friend soon.

  6. Since it is just YOU and Bob now, spend 1 to 2 hrs a day with him, every day for a week! Grooming, going for a walk, riding him, even if just in the pasture.....DO IT! When I lost Poncho, I did that with Libby...she was grieving and I was grieving and you know what? I did not realize but her and I bonded in that week, and it is magical! Bob has lost his mate, and is all alone....spend time with him. No matter the weather. I set my goal for an hour a day, and somedays it was more than that. Libby and I have actually bonded more so than Sissy and I were bonded. Good luck...and happy trails.
